Next up in our year-end poll series, we turn our attention to the all-important MV.

Visuals are an extremely important component of the K-pop genre, and oftentimes a good music video has just as much impact on a song’s popularity as the song itself.

This year has seen quite its varied share of music videos, ranging from videos with profound narratives, to videos that push social boundaries, to fun and lighthearted videos with global appeal, to videos that showcase awesome dance abilities, to videos that are just plain pretty to look at.

Which music video do you think deserves to be crowned 2012 Music Video of the Year?
