If you thought Kpop is all jolly tunes, lovey-dovey music videos and fluffy pastel idols the Halloween season will prove you very wrong! There is quite an amount of dark tracks, mysterious visuals and gory settings out there. Hidden in the deep shadows of Kpop, you’ll find eerie characters like witches, zombies, werewolves, voodoo masters, vampires or ghosts – just to name a few. The audio-visual degree of spookiness is as diverse: playful, harsh, deep to disturbing.
I tried to find a nic— I mean, horrifying mixture for this Halloween playlist to fit anyone’s taste. Some tracks are listed because their title obviously hints the Halloween theme (s.a. BIGBANG’s “Monster”, Grace’s “Trick or Treat” or BtoB’s “Thriller”). Some music videos only have minor fitting elements (s.a. Twice’s “Like OOH-AHH”, 4Minute’s “What’s Your Name?” or ZE:A’s “The Ghost of Wind”), others are a bloody mess (s.a. Cross Gene’s “Black or White”, Vixx‘s “Voodoo Doll”, SHINee’s “Married to the Music”). Some need no gore to give you the creeps (s.a. Sunny Hill’s “Pray”, Xia’s “Flower”, Cho Hyung Woo’s “Someone I Know”), and then there are those which fit the overall mysterious mood (s.a. NCT U’s “The 7th Sense”, BTS’ “Blood Sweat & Tears” or Gain’s “Paradise Lost”). Enjoy!
