Roundtable: The Summer of 2017

Summer releases are always a highlight in K-pop. The companies go an extra mile with the music videos, girl groups dominate, and more often than not, the schedule is so jampacked that several artists dominate the charts for a week or two before another comes in to take the top spot. This summer has been eventful in K-pop from the scandals, the myriad of releases, groups celebrating their anniversaries, and groups both debuting, disbanding and members leaving groups.

For this edition for the Roundtable, we reminisce on the hot summer that is coming to a close just as the soft breeze of autumn promises to come. We ask the writers: what was your favorite summer release of 2017? Which song in particular dominated the summer?
