If you watch the HBO fantasy series “Game of Thrones,” you know how great the show is. But there’s one thing that could make it even better: K-pop! In honor of Season 7 of “Game of Thrones” coming to an end, here are some of the main characters on the show and their would-be K-pop theme songs.
This article contains some spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7.
Daenerys Targaryen — “Fire,” BTS
The only way Daenerys’s scenes could be more epic is if BTS’s “Fire” played every time she shouted “Dracarys” and started burning things down. Just like the song suggests, this queen makes her own rules — and sets a lot of fires along the way.
Arya Stark — “New Face,” PSY
Arya has trained with the Faceless Men, learning the ability to wear the face of each person she assassinates. Now that she’s constantly adding new faces to her collection, it’s easy to see how PSY’s “New Face” is a fitting theme song for Arya. Thankfully, the song is less creepy than her power is!
Littlefinger — “Trouble Maker,” Trouble Maker
Petyr Baelish, aka Littlefinger, has secretly schemed and plotted since Season 1, accumulating power at the expense of those around him. That’s why “Trouble Maker” is the perfect song for Littlefinger; he’s certainly caused a lot of trouble for everyone since the very beginning.
Bran Stark — “The 7th Sense,” NCT U
NCT U’s “The 7th Sense” has mysterious, dream-like vibes that suit Bran and his magical abilities. Bran can even use his powers to view the world through the eyes of other creatures, giving a new meaning to the song’s signature phrase “open your eyes.”
Cersei Lannister — “Hurricane Venus,” BoA
Cersei will stop at nothing to protect herself and those she loves, and just like a hurricane, she leaves a wake of destruction in her path. That’s why K-pop queen BoA’s “Hurricane Venus” is a fitting theme song for the queen on the Iron Throne.
Jaime Lannister — “Replay,” SHINee
This SHINee classic is also known as “Noona You’re So Pretty.” Seeing as Jaime’s twin sister Cersei is slightly older than he is, that makes her his noona… and, well, we all know how special their relationship is.
Tyrion Lannister — “MAMA,” EXO
Tyrion has been rejected and spurned throughout his life, even by members of his own family. The message of “MAMA,” which asks people to accept and respect each other rather than being heartless, would resonate with him.
Melisandre — “Red,” HyunA
Melisandre is also called the “Red Woman,” making HyunA’s “Red” the perfect anthem for her. Plus, these two ladies in red share a similar sexy charm that makes them both irresistible!
Ser Jorah Mormont — “I’m Jelly Baby,” AOA Cream
There’s nothing quite as heartbreaking as unrequited love, and Jorah’s feelings for Daenerys are still as one-sided as ever. As Dany continues to find new love interests, all Jorah can do is say “I’m Jelly Baby”!
Theon Greyjoy — “On and On,” VIXX
While he does make some pretty terrible choices, poor Theon really has been through a lot. In “On and On,” VIXX sings about a tortured soul not unlike the young Greyjoy. And maybe he could take a hint from the chorus of “I need therapy” — he should probably talk to someone.
Sansa Stark — “I Don’t Need a Man,” miss A
After being mistreated by multiple men in her life, Sansa is finally starting to embrace her independence, even flexing her leadership skills as Lady of Winterfell. miss A’s “I Don’t Need a Man” is the strong-woman anthem that defines Sansa’s new attitude!
Jon Snow — “Hero,” MONSTA X
Sometimes it seems like Jon is the only one who could genuinely save Westeros — especially when other characters are too concerned with their own power struggles to care about the giant army of the dead marching towards them all. MONSTA X’s “Hero” defines Jon Snow in a nutshell: he is the hero that Westeros needs… but definitely doesn’t deserve.
The Night King — “It’s Cold,” Epik High feat. Lee Hi
Speaking of that army of the dead, let’s round out this list with its leader! Epik High’s “It’s Cold” is the K-pop theme song of the Night King because… well, just look at him.
