MTV said, "Although people have more time to listen to new songs in 2020, it's hard to keep up with all of the K-Pop music products, especially for songs that aren't title tracks. For that reason, MTV News has compiled a list of the best K-Pop b-side songs so that everyone can know more about them. Here are 23 songs that are not title tracks but are unique and qualified among the thousands of K-Pop songs released in 2020."

BoA's song 'Start Over' has been chosen by MTV as the best K-Pop b-side song in 2020. MTV highly praised this song and said that this is really a 'jewel' hidden in the album 'Better' from the female singer.
In general, in this list, we can see MTV's diverse and unique taste, which surpasses the standards of the music market. Many people praised the b-side songs of BTS, Stray Kids, TXT, NCT 127, IZ*ONE... All of which are excellent choices and deserve to be heard by non-fans. In addition, being named in the list are songs from STAYC, WOODZ, ENHYPEN and Weeekly, the rookies - this is considered a commendable achievement for them.
However, what makes many people wonder is the absence of BLACKPINK and TWICE on the list. 'The Album' (by BLACKPINK) and 'Eyes Wide Open' (by TWICE) are both considered albums with many impressive and quality songs, but in the end, they were unable to enter the MTV's list.
What do you think about MTV's choices? For you, which are the best K-Pop b-side songs of 2020?
