This song was also covered by Seventeen’s Woozi. Another track that needs to be on your radar? Yerin Baek’s Here I am Again, which is an OST for the iconic K-drama, Crash Landing on You.
BE’O became an instant star rapper on Show Me the Money 10 with his song, Counting Stars.

Give his latest single, Love Me, a listen, too—you don’t want to miss out.
Even though EXO’s Baekhyun is now serving in the military, we like going back to his music while we wait for his official dischargement. With R&B and jazz influences seeping into his music, his first solo album City Lights, which houses Candy, has been a continuous hit. Let’s not forget the smooth and sensual Bambi either.

His discography has made people fall in love with his voice, and is perfect for those who just want to relax after a busy day.

Some music for an aesthetic cafe experience? Then JUNNY should be on your playlist. He’s an underrated Korean singer that needs to be recognized for his soft-melting voice. Need evidence? Listen to his top songs, By My Side and Movie.
K-soloists are quickly becoming fan favorites, and they’ll surely relieve you from the stress of the day-to-day. After all, each of them has something special to offer as K-Pop music is a growing and expanding genre.
