Studying might be one of everyone’s least favorite activities, but we’ve all got to do it at some point in our lives…or at least, we have to try!
At least we can make study time a little more bearable by popping in a pair of earbuds and putting on a playlist of our favorite K-pop songs, right? If you’re looking for some new additions to your studying playlist, here are 10 relaxing songs that can help you focus!
1. Verbal Jint ft. Kang Min Hee – “Good Start”
Get your study sesh off to a “Good Start” (haha, I know) with this song by Verbal Jint and Kang Min Hee. The steady rap beat, combined with Kang Min Hee’s lovely vocals, makes it a great track for studying!
2. IU – “Sleepless Rainy Night”
Although this song is about being unable to sleep due to memories of an ex-lover, IU’s sweet voice in this chill song is great for those long sleepless nights of homework and studying, too!
3. Eddy Kim – “Now”
You can always count on Eddy Kim for warm, mellow tracks with relaxing guitar melodies and buttery-smooth vocals. His recently-released song “Now” is no exception!
