With Halloween a few days away, it’s time for part 2 of the Halloween edition of K-Music Playlist! This playlist will highlight some of the best K-Pop Halloween-themed/inspired music videos. From dark and spooky videos to fun and quirky ones where different groups are dressed up in different costumes – its all fit for Halloween.
BTS – “War Of Hormone” (Bangtan Bomb)
In celebration of Halloween, the boys of BTS dressed up in different costumes and released a special video for their follow up track, “War of Hormone.” Though this was not an actual music video, this still makes the spot on the playlist as one of the only K-Pop groups to release something actually Halloween-themed
Boyfriend – “WITCH”
Werewolves & Little Red Riding Hood — One of the most classic things to dress up as of portray during Halloween. Boyfriend brings this concept to life with their music for “Witch.” The members all portray werewolves who becomes friends with a girl whom is actually Little Red Riding Hood in disguise. This music video is another classic dark-themed K-Pop music video and with the added bonus of the fantasy plot line, this easily makes this Halloween K-Pop Playlist.
Orange Caramel – “아잉♡” (Aing)
When it comes to cute and quirky costumes, Orange Caramel (an After School sub-unit) is the top girl-group that manages to successfully pull it off along with their addictive and catchy songs. “아잉♡” is filled with the members of Orange Caramel (Nana, Raina & Lizzy) bringing famous fairy tales to life such as Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood and Alice In Wonderland, but put their own twist to the story. From their adorable outfits to the fun and upbeat song, this is definitely another great addition to this playlist.
VIXX – “Hyde”
Highly known for their dark concepts, VIXX makes the playlist with their popular titles, “Hyde.” The expression of good versus evil/light and dark/angels and demons, is portrayed throughout the music video through the members. “Hyde” makes the playlist due to the dark tones and sets of the music video and through the creepy cut scenes that can make your skin crawl.
* VIXX – “Voodoo Doll”
(*Warning: Contains graphic/explicit images. Watch the clean version here )
Rounding off the rest of this Halloween Edition of K-Music Playlist, VIXX once again makes the list with their dark-themed music video for “Voodoo Doll.” With scenes that could be from a horror movie, VIXX shows their mastery of darker concepts that single-handedly take the cake for Halloween-esque music videos. Though they have many other darker-concept music videos (all worth watching), “Voodoo Doll” is one of the most iconic when it comes to darker themes. It is a music video not for the faint of heart but nonetheless perfect for Halloween.
2NE1 – “아파(IT HURTS)”
VIXX – “Error”
Big Bang – “Monster”
AOA – “Get Out”
4Minute – “Volume Up”
