10 K-Pop B-Sides That Deserve Your Attention: “Blue Flame”, “Magic Shop” and More!

On any K-pop album, fans would most likely turn up the volume on the title track. This is understandable because most producers know what they are doing, which track to highlight and which to put as a side track. Listening to side tracks can be great too, as it can help fans not miss out on precious gems.

However, there are many hidden bops on every album, and this list is just a few, and without a doubt proves that there are B-side tracks that deserve more attention.

Without further ado, here are 10 good K-pop B-sides you should add to your playlist!
