Going to 노래방 (Norebang, Korean karaoke) is a daunting experience for many. From the complex remote to the big songbook, finding the right song to play can be challenging. "Popular Songs for 노래방" is a series of posts listing the most popular songs of an artist or theme, along with their track number for both TJ and Kumyoung (KY) machines. YouTube Karaoke videos are provided when available so that you can practice before heading to a real 노래방!
Seventeen (세븐틴) songs in the table below are ordered from most to least recent. The most recent songs may be unavailable at your local 노래방 if the machines have not been updated. To determine the column to use for your karaoke session, look at the manufacturer of the karaoke machine either on the machine itself, on the remote, or on the interface. You should see two letters, either TJ or KY; use the corresponding column in the table below to add the song to the queue and start singing!

- The links in the table above redirect to the official YouTube Karaoke videos by TJ Media. These videos have English transcription below the 한글 (hangeul) lyrics; useful if reading hangeul is too hard! Modern karaoke machines will offer this service too but are not frequently seen in norebangs outside South Korea.
