14 Hilariously Cringy K-Pop Idol CFs That The Fandom Will Never Live Down

These CFs are the birthplace of many, many memes. Enjoy.

EXO

Be careful with what concept you debut with – it will haunt you forever!

Girls’ Generation

From the choreo mess-ups to that fake laughing at the end, this CF is a classic!

MOMOLAND’s JooE

If you can’t get enough of her “Apple tok tok,” there’s also other flavors as well (each with JooE’s trademark dancing of course). From rick rolling to mash ups, this became a viral meme in Korea.

SHINee

The hair, that flashy background – this CF just screams early 2000s. (And it was most recently referenced in SHINee’s SNL skit.)

BIGBANG

This is a forever classic! G-Dragon acting cute is so funny!

SEVENTEEN

Best watched on Valentine’s Day.

Super Junior

Why are chicken CFs in Korea so extra?

SISTAR

We miss you SISTAR!

2NE1

Sandara? More like Sun-Dara!

And of course, we can’t forget the collabs!

Girls’ Generation and TVXQ

Tag yourself. I’m forever alone Junsu.

Girls’ Generation and 2PM

Not quite a cringy CF, but a legendary one. This was an extra AF CF for a water park, and its efforts were well appreciated by both fandoms.

BTS and GFRIEND

“Hip hop is dead” – Suga probably.

MONSTA X’s Shownu and DIA’s Yebin

This “Goblin” parody is hilarious!
