Let’s face it, there’s something seriously addictive to K-Pop… and we can’t help but relish bringing up these examples of just how riveting K-Pop songs can be.

There’s something magical brewing in the next clips… still, make sure you bring some popcorn and drinks! There’s a thirst that comes with watching these idols.
BLACKPINK – ‘As If It’s Your Last’ Chance To Join The Justice League
One powerful song from a powerful group of lady bosses! This is just the perfect fit for the scene it commanded. Amidst the monotone feel of our amicable Barry Allen’s lab, sounds one of BLACKPINK‘s signature tunes! And it lights up the entire atmosphere. We have nothing but praise for his music taste…
RM (Ft. Mandy Ventrice) – ‘Fantastic’ Beat To Summon The Fantastic 4
Our regular one-of-a-kind leader of BTS Kim Namjoon, a.k.a. RM, headlines this truly energetic tune. In a tale of heroes, he becomes one with a song that’s as powerful as it is ‘Fantastic.’ No wonder they’ve hand-picked this song for their Marvel-icious soundtrack.
2NE1 – ‘I Am The Best’ One Yet, So You Better Work It
Everything from the performance to the song itself is pure genius. And it’s just right for this scene! Because it exudes an energy that it’s hypnotizing as it is proficient at making a statement. ‘I Am The Best’ is an excellent pick on any occasion, but in Work It this song reaches new heights of epic!
Wonder Girls – ‘Nobody’ Should Miss Out On This Gem From Penguins Of Madagascar
Don’t you just love the endearing penguins from Madagascar? Well, you’ll love them even more as you catch the sounds of Wonder Girls in one of their scenes! You’ll be “waving and smiling” once you fall under their wonderful spell of talent! Because we “want nobody, nobody but” to play this song over and over again!
BTS – ‘Friends’ Make The Best Of Eternals
We better join an ARMY of Eternals! Because BTS has done it again! They’ve gifted us with a song that echoes in the vast universe with an ease that will have you playing it endlessly. And no matter how briefly this tune plays in the movie, it most certainly crowns the moment. Goes to prove that there’s no going wrong with these idols!
BLACKPINK – To All The Boys: P.S. ‘Kill This Love’ With Attitude!
This song is so blissfully badass… And as we hear the marching beat of this anthem from BLACKPINK, our heroic Lara Jean takes a stance! Talk about girl power! We’ve all felt compelled to blast our sound systems as we listen to this masterpiece. And this scene draws from some seriously BLACKPINK fierceness!
PSY Ft Snoop Dogg – No ‘Hangover’ Can Stop Black Panther
A fitting song for setting the vibe to yet another series of epic moves from our King T’Challa! Because nothing screams more action than a casino packed with baddies. At least no ‘Hangover’ clouded our hero’s panther-like abilities! But wouldn’t you just love to see Black Panther bonding with PSY himself? That’d be another watch-worthy scene!
Red Velvet – Trolls World Tour‘s Dance Offs Are A Real ‘Russian Roulette’
Be it an animation or the real deal, Red Velvet can party up any scene! And this time around, they simply slay the Dance Off. ‘Russian Roulette’ is an energetic, catchy, upbeat, and essential tune. That’s probably why it was the natural choice for the Trolls World Tour! Have you tried this song’s choreography yet? Many of us at THP have been spotted trying to ace the moves… We’ll get there!
BTS – Clifford The Big Red Dog Lights It Up Like ‘Dynamite’
The fact that this song got featured in Clifford is no coincidence. And if you’re wondering why, maybe you haven’t fallen head over heels with it. The feels are just so in sync with the whole tone of the movie. Also, BTS keeps showing up and nailing every single musical cameo they’ve earned! No wonder why they’ve taken the world by storm (and continue to do so…)!
TVXQ! – ‘Rising Sun’ On A Fast And Furious Horizon
Get a paper bag, because this scene has us hyperventilating! And we have to praise the brilliance of this K-Pop song that keeps the hectic pace of the cut effortlessly. Kudos to TVXQ! for always delivering high-energy pieces that feel tailor-made for this kind of movie. So, we better keep tabs on them! There’s more from where that came from!
Girls’ Generation – ‘Gee!’ We Have A Lot To Say To All The Boys: Always And Forever!
Can you keep up with the tempo of this ecstatic K-Pop song? We are certainly feeling the challenge! But whether you’ve heard it before or not, it feels like the perfect pick for an opening scene! It sets a cheerful tone that makes us all want to fly over to visit Seoul while streaming this song. Bottom line, it had to be a Girls’ Generation creation to have us vibing non-stop! ‘Gee!’ we hope you are ready to witness some seriously sick girl power!
We could go on endlessly because K-Pop is finally getting some well-deserved spotlight! But for now, we are pleased to have you on due course to spot even more K-Pop song cameos in movies.
