8 Sinister K-Pop MVs That Channel The Halloween Spirit
With autumn leaves filling pavements and Pumpkin Spice lattes becoming the seasonal beverage of choice, it is safe to say that Halloween is upon us. With creative costumes and eerie vibes being the official representatives of the holiday, K-pop MVs bearing the same theme have basically become part of the tradition.
Here is a selection of some of the spookiest MVs through which you’re bound to channel the Halloween spirit!
1. T1419 – “Dracula”
This pre-debut MV from T1419 welcomes this year’s Halloween. The members hide their identities behind a full face of makeup representing all sorts of evil creatures, whereas the setting reminds viewers of the home of Count Dracula.
2. DreamCatcher – “Chase Me”
Haunted house? Check. Witchcraft? Check. Thrilling soundtrack? Double-check. DreamCatcher undoubtedly owns the eerie concept via both their music and visuals, and this MV is but one example of many.
3. CROSS GENE – “Black or White”
Trigger warning: there is a lot of bloodshed in this MV. CROSS GENE has kicked it up a notch in this gruesome cinematography where the members are facing themselves by literally putting an end to their alter egos.
4. Ladies’ Code – “Hate You”
Ladies’ Code takes “child’s play” to the next level with their collection of creepy dolls and equally terrifying dining table sets. Needless to say that the members are ultimate horror queens in this MV!
5. G-Dragon – “Coup D’état”
G-Dragon has undoubtedly mastered bizarreness in the making of his art, and it happens to be aesthetically captivating. This revolution-themed MV of his is no exception as all sorts of soul-stirring symbolism compose the overall scenery in a frightening manner.
6. NATURE – “Girls”
This MV is goosebump-worthy from A to Z. From the first scene with hanging scissors, NATURE shows a rather haunting aura that will keep you on the edge of your seat as you follow the girls up close.
7. Zico feat. G.Soul – “Anti”
This one of a kind collaboration is the perfect mood for Halloween. Zico raps his heart out in response to the constant criticism he gets from anti-fans in an apocalyptic setting, complemented by G.Soul’s hook.
8. Oh My Girl – “Windy Day”
Don’t get fooled by the cute choreography and the beautiful nature surrounding Oh My Girl. Just like any horror movie, it’s all sunshine and roses until a strong wind disturbs the girls’ quietude as they find themselves stuck in a maze at night or lost in a dark highway.
