It’s never a secret that Korean idols release original songs. They were known to set the trends in making music. Most of the time, the lyrics of their songs were written in Korean. I agree that music has no boundary, even though we sometimes do not understand the lyrics but we feel it. Well, huge thanks to all translators we are now able to understand the lyrics. Moreover, I will not deny the fact that there are a bunch of English songs released. But, what if Korean Idols cover English songs? It will definitely satisfy both worlds.
7 Times Korean Idols Covered English Songs
Lost Stars – BTS Jung Kook Cover (Adam Levine)
Unfortunately, they did not release a video for this cover hence the black screen. Nonetheless, Jung Kook was able to express the lyrics. His voice is very calming. I can imagine myself listening to this song the whole day.
I Like Me Better – NCT Jaehyun (Lauv)
With over 64 million views, this has become the most viewed cover by a K-Pop idol. I can’t blame the netizens if they would play this on repeat. To say it’s perfect would be an understatement. The voice and the video itself are swoon-worthy. And, even if you are single this video will make you feel like you have a partner.
