7 Enchanting K-Pop MVs That Are Simply Royal
Great music videos often give off a refined perspective of the song by either reflecting its lyrics or adding a whole subliminal chapter that complements the storyline that’s being told.
When it comes to K-pop, the cinematography reaches a whole new level. Some visual settings are so captivating that they exude royal energy, sometimes literally. Let’s discover the following featured music videos that are so fascinating, we’d think they come straight out of a Disney prince(ss) movie!
1. GOT7 – “Not By The Moon”
Seven princes, one moon: Need I say more? Well, the MV says plenty as we’re blessed with majestic sceneries as GOT7 serves a lustrous choreography under the moonlight. Also, let’s not forget Jackson taking the throne and wearing a tilted crown like a total badass.
2. (G)I-DLE – “Lion”
(G)I-DLE takes us by surprise with every comeback they make. In this dazzling visual representation, the sextet claims the crown both in their lyrics and through their choreography while each one of them gracefully rocks a fancy tiara.
3. NU’EST – “Bet Bet”
To savor the enchantment in this one, you’ll need to watch until the very end. The major part of the MV shows NU’EST as knights in shiny shoes and dark “armor” suits, staying by their queen’s side at all times. Their plot ends with them finding their utopia, and per their album title, they lived happily ever after.
4. DreamCatcher – “Deja Vu”
Most palace tales have betrayal as a major event-turning factor, and DreamCatcher follows suit in this double-crossing storyline. An epic battle takes place where the members turn against each other in order to steal the throne, and the ending could not have been foreseen.
5. VIXX – “Shangri-La”
Let’s face it, all of VIXX’s concepts are fantasia incarnate, and this one is no different. Everything about “Shangri-La” is simply irresistible, especially the fan-incorporated dance key points. Plus, their personas as dark princes with kind hearts follow them in almost every comeback!
6. Park Bom – “Don’t Cry”
It looks like Park Bom crossed a portal that landed her in an abandoned castle. The gloominess of the weather is appeased with the apparition of a lively butterfly that leads her through a beautiful garden to her prince charming.
7. BTS – “Blood Sweat & Tears”
The opening of this MV feels like the members are princes imprisoned inside a fantasy book with a sinister twist. The following scenes are as ethereal as they are intriguing, complemented by a bewitching choreography that is nothing short of perfect.
