Every month, we bring you a list of the hottest K-pop songs and videos that you need to check out. Here are our favorites for March’s edition:
Dark, scathing and conceptual, Sunmi’s synth-heavy “Noir” gives off all the right new wave vibes. Released alongside a biting video that satirizes obsessive social media culture, the song is a true gem.
K-pop rookies Tomorrow X Together—or simply TXT— made their much-anticipated debut with “Crown.” As the juniors of international juggernauts BTS, the group has big shoes to fill, but they might very well live up to the hype. Their debut song is energetic, catchy and already a chart-topper.
“What You Waiting For?” is Anda’s first release since signing to YG Entertainment and it’s a high-octane EDM bop. Made in collaboration with producer R.Tee, the dancefloor burner incorporates choppy synths, a trap-inspired breakdown and melodic keyboard chords.
“Love Tonight” is the latest single from veteran trot singer Hong Jin Young’s debut album, Lots of Love. The disco-influenced track was released alongside a fantastical video where she plays the role of a musically gifted cat.
Beloved South Korean hip hop group Epik High have made their return with “Love Drunk,” their first release since leaving YG Entertainment. The heart-breaking mid-tempo ballad was released alongside a cinematic video that stars actress Jin Seo Yeon and K-singer IU.
Noted vocalist Park Bom has made her triumphant comeback with “Spring,” eight years after her last solo release. She soars over dramatic piano chords and atmospheric synths on this hopeful ballad.
This playful party anthem, “Gogobebe,” ends off Mamamoo’s 4 Seasons series. The lead single from their White Wind EP, the track incorporates Latin-influenced strings, deep bass and groovy synths.
Momoland have doubles down on their successful brass-heavy sound with “I’m So Hot.” The electro swing single, produced by hitmaker Shinsadong Tiger, is just as infectious and joyous as the group’s breakout hits, “Bboom Bboom” and “Bamm.”
“Four Seasons” is the latest release from Taeyeon, along with B-side “Blue.” The melancholic break-up song layers the singer’s resonant vocals over guitar chords, light keyboards and jaunty percussion.
Stray Kids are rookies no more. The K-pop boyband recently celebrated their one-year anniversary with the release of Clé 1: Miroh, alongside the synth-heavy, club-ready single “Miroh.”
