Another interesting thing to note this year is that there wasnt there wasnt a debut from the big 3 (not counting sub units). However, they do all have plans for new groups in 2014.  YGs Winner, while on TV has yet to make their official debut. JYP will be releasing their new boy group GOT7 this month, along with another boy group and girl group later. SM has just started showing off their trainees through SM Rookies.

While it would be nearly impossible to copy the level of popularity EXO and B.A.P in their 2012 rookie year, there are definitely a few standouts from last year.

While NOM made their debut with a cute song, there is actually another group out there named N.O.M which features male erotic dancers.

If 2012 was the year that K-Pop crossed over with Psy's international smash 'Gangnam Style', 2013 was the year that K-Pop and the All Things Hallyu movement proved that it was here to stay. From Girls' Generation beating out Beliebers and Directioners and winning Video of the Year at the YouTube Music Awards to singer-rapper G-Dragon landing on the U.S. Billboard 200 again, with his follow-up album Coup D'Etat, Pt. 1, the Korean pop scene thrived in 2013.

2EYES Tops Editor's Picks For The Top 5 K-Pop Music Videos Of 2013 With 'Don't Mess With Me' [VIDEO]

News via kpopstarz.com

There isn't anything in the world of K-pop quite like the "Don't Mess With Me" video. Rocket-fired fists, high-flying martial arts and power plant explosions are just a few examples from the video's arsenal of impressive moments. Subtitled "The Fist of Vengeance" the director reimagines the five members of 2EYES as a group of vigilante fighters in a dark future resembling "Mad Max." Although highly overlooked by fans, ("Don't Mess With Me" has 135,000 YouTube views, a sharp contrast to the millions of views for the other videos on this list) the originality of the concept, a Tarantino-esque revenge fantasy, and the strength of the band's performance, was unmatched in 2013. But for all the visual pyrotechnics, one of the video's strongest sequences is also its most low budget-a scene where the members dance on a dusty back road feels gritty and real. Hopefully, the lack of attention for this brilliant video won't stop 2EYES from continuing to bring the feature film feel to their K-pop music videos. Michael Jackson would be proud.

The King of YouTube officially retired the one-hit wonder label with this record-breaking video. But beyond all the hype, what is most impressive about "Gentleman" is how Psy doubled down on the over-the-top persona he created on "Gangnam Style" by making himself the butt of the joke. While so many artists seem to value looking cool above all else, Psy showed the world that being silly is way more fun. In a society not revered by the rest of the world for knowing how to cut loose, ("Gentleman" was banned by the Korean Broadcasting System for the rapper's disrespectful treatment of a traffic cone), Psy's video has the irreverent sneer of a Sex Pistols song.

Lee Hyori went retro with highly successful results in the "Miss Korea" video. Shot in black and white, the minimalist directing style and use of silhouettes creates a freshly distinctive look. The decision to employ Golden Age of Hollywood techniques, like the split screen effect and integrating outfits into backgrounds, is inspired. The other various nods to the Jazz Age, like the drummer using brushes and the line of male dancers in 3D glasses, are also a nice touch. The stylized look is the perfect match for the song's jazzy inflection. Lee is at her most stunning in the video, appearing in a dazzling array of flattering outfits and cementing her status as South Korea's number one pop diva.

Park Ji Yoon became a member of Mystic 89 in 2013 spring. Yoon Jong Shin is the leader producer in Mystic 89. The Mystic 89 and Park Ji Yoon's new project has its point on amplifying the musical talents that she has. They focus on her special one-and-only vocals of her.This album's title song [Mr.Lee] is composed and written by the famous hip-hop musician Primary. It has retro fun beat and addictive chorus. It also shows the special voice Park Ji Yoon in an amazing way. It talks about a girl who is roaming around the man she is interested in. Rapper San E joined as featuring to make the song even better.

The music video was released on October 17, and since then it has not even reached a million views. Apart from Park Jiyoon's vocals, credit is also due to the very making of the music video. It's fresh, it's different, and it has a dash of entertainment to go with the pretty faces. This combine visually appealing with substance in a very subtle way and definitely deserves more love.

Jay Lee is a solo RnB artist under KTMusic. The music video has a lot of heart to it, a lot of emotion that really stays with you, and it was presented in such a soft, pretty way-- not in the usual dramatic, in-your-face angst that some music videos do when showcasing melancholy. It's just a really well-made video in my eyes, and a lot of the details that are consistent throughout the video can hardly be overlooked.
