7 Heist-Themed K-Pop MVs That Are Bound To Take Your Breath Away
If you think thriller and action are reserved for Hollywood, think again. Not only do Korean movies and dramas give you quite the adrenaline rush thanks to their meticulously directed scenarios, but even K-pop music videos join in on the thrill.
Here is a selection of the most captivating music videos with a heist plot that will definitely keep you on your toes. Let’s check them out down below!
1. MONSTA X – “Love Killa”
One look at Joohoney at the beginning of the music video is all it takes to remind us of the Joker’s famous heist. The scenes that follow portray the aftermath of what seems to be – according to the loaded bags in dollar bills – a successful bank robbery.
2. B.A.P – “Skydive”
B.A.P is the master of cinematographic music videos. Naturally, there is a thrilling armed robbery storyline in their videography. And as always, there is a plot twist that will catch you off guard. Check it out for yourselves!
3. AOA – “Like A Cat”
Next up on the list is a quest for a big fat diamond. A little bit of sneakiness and a lot more fitness is required to get this high-risk job done, as AOA expertly shows in this music video.
4. Block B – “Very Good”
There are some badass thieves with a humorous twist in town, and their name is Block B. Their entrance – much like their exit – is mind-blowing to say the least. You could also say that the members managed to execute their heist with style.
5. 24K – “Still 24K”
It’s not always about money. Sometimes, the (stolen) grand prize involves gold and jewelry. 24K takes us on an intense mission to get their hands on a generous share of 24-karat gold. But is it worth the price they paid for? Watch the music video to find out!
6. Super Junior – “Black Suit”
Changing scenes from the usual bank robberies, Super Junior brings a new setting to the table: high-profile auctions. The music video is a bit tangled and full of flashbacks, so you might need a pen and paper to jot down the exact timeline that leads these gentlemen burglars to eye the black suit in the first place.
7. Dal Shabet – “Mr. BangBang”
This following robbery scene is a recipe for disaster, and it won’t take long to figure out why. While it’s perhaps not the most well-planned heist, the ending is quite unexpected. Needless to say, this entertaining music video deserves a spot on this list!
