I decided to compile a list of K-pop songs according to different moods, just for fun. These songs of course are mostly from my own personal tastes so please don’t be offended if your favs arn’t listed here, feel free to leave songs in the comments! I tried to take the sound of the song as well as the lyrics into consideration while categorising (I also tried to only have 1 song per artist per category), I hope you enjoy and maybe find something new that you like. Songs marked with a ♥ means it’s one of my all time favs and you should definitely check it out. (links lead to lyric videos on YouTube)
BTS – Blood Sweat & Tears
I certainly can’t have a most aesthetically pleasing K-pop MVs list without this now can I? I’m sticking to 1 MV per group/artist and everything about this just screams beauty to me (no not just the members). The whole set and colour pallet is gorgeous and scenes like Taehyung under the sheet and JK floating in the air are breathtaking. Also how paint features in this MV with the splattering and when it runs down Jimin’s face, just yes. This MV and the whole Wings era was inspired by a book called Demian by Hermann Hesse.
Me and my friend Lena (who also loves k-pop) thought it would be fun to do one of these, and seeing as we both love BTS a lot, to do one featuring only BTS! This is just for fun and our own opinions.
What are your BTS favourites?
Favourite music video aesthetic
I decided to try and rank the current 21 BTS title tracks because I like to torture myself apparently. This is purely based on my own opinions and the music only, not the music videos. Some of these songs I’ve listened to a lot more than others and some I have grown to like more over time so this list may well change in the future. Also because I’m Taehyung trash, I decided to make each screenshot one of him.
Clicking on an image will lead to the official music video on Youtube. Let’s go.
BTS released the first mini album of their new era, Map of the Soul, with Persona on April 12th 2019. The title track and music video is Boy With Luv and features the American singer Halsey. I have been an Army since DNA era and have been eagerly awaiting this comeback. Here are my first thoughts of listening to the songs:
