With so many festivities coming up, we thought now would be a great time to give our fellow hopeless romantics a couple of K-pop songs that will put a smile on their faces. Consider this an early Christmas gift from the THP team. You may have a list of holiday movies that make you feel warm and fuzzy, but we bet you don’t have a playlist of K-pop songs that will elicit those same emotions. With that being said, let’s get started!
‘BLOSSOM’ – WEi
If this song isn’t on your Spotify playlist, add it right now! Not only will this lovely song instantly make you smile within the first five seconds, but it will also leave you mesmerized by the group’s beautiful vocals. Now combine WEi’s magnificent singing with their lyricism, and that’s what we call talent. And what do we call this song? A masterpiece, of course.
‘Stardust’ – ASTRO
If you’re a ballad enthusiast and love tranquil songs, then this one’s for you! This track has such a sweet melody and clever metaphors related to the galaxy and stars. Imagine someone telling you that “you are stardust” – that’s honestly a wholesome compliment. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’ll be crying to this song for the next few minutes.
‘ONLY’ – LeeHi
This is hands down one of our favorite songs because every time we listen to it, it makes us want to fall in love. If you haven’t seen the beautifully produced music video, then you’re missing out on a five-minute-long K-drama storyline. Just to tug at your heartstrings a little more, imagine dancing in the rain with your partner while listening to this song? LeeHi did not disappoint with this gem!
‘Darl+ing’ – SEVENTEEN
Looking for a cute, feel-good song to listen to? You’ve come to the right place. The aesthetic music video and the details of it are 100% worth watching! It’s the perfect song to listen to while taking a walk on a nice, sunny day or having a picnic in the park. Consider this track to be a serenade for all the hopeless romantics out there.
‘I Don’t Know You’ – The Rose
Listen, there’s no bigger ‘I Don’t Know You’ enthusiast than us! Would this really be a playlist if The Rose isn’t on it? Absolutely not, which is why we included a track about having a crush on someone you’ve never met before – you’re welcome! You are bound to daydream while listening to this song, which this talented group sings with so much emotion; it’s *chef’s kiss*.
‘Rewind’ – Kep1er
We have a confession to make … every time we listen to this song, we catch ourselves smiling, giggling, and kicking our feet. This song is everything we could ask for and more. The beautiful vocals, the melody, and the lyrics are all incredible. This is, without a doubt, a K-drama OST worthy song!
‘LOVE COUNTDOWN’ – NAYEON, Wonstein
Finally, wipe your tears because after a rollercoaster of emotions, here is a fun, bubbly song that we’re sure you’ll love! If you’re ever hesitant about shooting your shot, you can listen to this track as motivation. If you’re afraid to do so, no worries, you can join us and simply dance along and vibe to this tuneful hit.
