KPOP Goes in One Direction! Our Favorite Covers From KPOP Idols You Need To Hear

One Direction is officially 10 years old (if you can believe it). The group made history during their run together, and they continue to do so in each of the boy’s solo careers. There is no denying the impact that they have made on the music industry, as seen, for instance, in the numerous times their songs have been covered. To celebrate, we thought we would take a look at some of the iconic artists in KPop, and put together a list of One Direction covers that we have been watching and listening to (and that you should too!)

One Direction Songs

A.C.E – ‘History

Released earlier this month, A.C.E. posted their cover of ‘History’, a song near and dear to many Directioners hearts. They did a fantastic job with this cover and show that all five members are indeed vocalists!

Day6 – ‘History

Day6 has also covered the fan-favorite song, and you need you to listen. We would expect nothing less than a more than lovely cover from Day6!

Pentagon – ‘Story Of My Life

Pentagon’s vocals while singing ‘Story of My Life’ are incredibly sweet, and watching them have fun with this song will put a smile on your face!

SEVENTEEN – ‘One Thing

All the way back in 2013, we have pre-debut SEVENTEEN performing ‘One Thing’, and it’s a performance you didn’t realize you needed in your life til now. The vocal line not only delivered with their cover, but it’s hard to not geek out over how cute the boys are in their pre-debut days.

THE BOYZ – ‘Steal My Girl

THE BOYZ acoustic cover is simply beautiful. You will get the chills when you are listening.

Jinhwan and Donghyuk of IKON – ‘Half A Heart

One of two One Direction covers on our list from this duo, Jinhwan and Donghyuk’s vocals (and the electric guitar), are a perfect match for this b-side. 

SoReal (Tri:al) – ‘Story Of My Life

Now known as the trio group Tri:al, SoReal released their cover of ‘Story of My Life’ back in 2014, and we are so glad they did. 

LUNAFLY – ‘Heart Attack

We love ‘Heart Attack’ getting the love that it deserves, and LUNAFLY does an amazing job tackling this song. Plus, their video and the cuts to them jumping during the ‘ow’ ad-libs is fun to watch!

LC9 – ‘What Makes You Beautiful

You can tell that LC9 put a lot of effort into the filming their cover of ‘What Makes You Beautiful’, as they pay homepage to the original by filming at the beach. It’s definitely a treat to watch.

LEDApple – ‘Story of My Life’

LEDApple has done a few One Direction covers that you should watch! Their cover of ‘Story of My Life, however, is one you do not want to press skip on.

Solo Songs

Park Jeongwoo and Haruto of TREASURE – ‘Stack It Up’ by Liam Payne

This duo makes this song their own to the point that you forget this is a cover of Liam’s track and not their song. Jeongwoo and Haruto’s voices work perfectly for this song individually and together.


We wish that this cover from Henry was longer because his vocals are heavenly! 

Ji Jinseok (Feat. R1AN) – ‘PILLOWTALK’ by ZAYN

Jinseok’s vocals are perfect for Zayn’s ‘PILLOWTALK’ and we can’t get enough! 

Jinho of Pentagon – ‘Falling’ by Harry Styles

‘Falling’ is undoubtedly one of Harry’s most emotional songs to date. Jinho captures this emotion and more with his beautiful and powerful cover. 

Gaho – ‘Dusk Till Dawn’ by ZAYN

The video of Gaho’s cover is stunning to watch. It goes right along with the feel of the song, and his cover is overall amazing.

Leenzy – ‘Adore You’ by Harry Styles

One word: obsessed. Leenzy’s cover of ‘Adore You’ deserves more recognition, and her deep vocals fit the song so well. You’re going to be playing this one on repeat for sure. 

Ha Hyunsang of Hoppipola – ‘Falling’ by Harry Styles

Hyunsang is another who brings justice to this emotional song. As you watch, you can tell he is feeling the emotions of the song, and it carries through to his beautiful and strong vocals. 

Kim Woosung of The Rose and Lee Chansol of BANDAGE – ‘Sign of the Times’ by Harry Styles

The duo sang this rendition of ‘Sign of the Times’ on the show SuperBand. It’s a wonderful stripped-down rendition, with both of their powerful vocals working in perfect harmony. Black Roses also got treated when The Rose sang this cover on their tour last year.

Jinhwan and Donghyuk of IKON – ‘DRUNK’ by ZAYN

The other 1D related cover that this iconic duo recorded. After hearing their ‘Half A Heart’ cover, it’s no surprise that they also did a fantastic job covering Zayn’s song.
