1. PENTAGON – “Shine”
This was the song of the summer back in 2018, and it still has all the same good vibes it did then! Any K-pop fan will appreciate the bouncy beat and catchy piano tune, and it’s pretty much impossible to stay sad when you’re listening to “Shine.” This song is like an instant happy pill!
2. VIVIZ – “BOP BOP!”
This fresh-sounding track from the ladies of VIVIZ is definitely, well – a bop! The upbeat tune will get your mind off of your worries, and the chorus is so catchy that it’ll be stuck in your head for hours. If you just need a reset for your day, this is the song for you!
3. Stray Kids – “Gone Days”
“Gone Days” has a deceptively cheerful feel, but it’s actually all about some real-life issues a lot of young people face: namely, those who think they know it all just because they’re older! This is a great one to belt out when you’ve had a frustrating day dealing with bosses or bullies.
4. Oh My Girl – “Dolphin”
Oh My Girl perfectly describes the feeling of a bad day with “Dolphin,” but the song is still lighthearted enough that it won’t drag you down! This track is perfect for those days where everything just seems to go wrong – and it’s just so catchy! It went viral for a reason.
5. DAY6’s Dowoon feat. Song Heejin – “Out of the Blue”
In DAY6 drummer Dowoon’s solo debut, he collaborated with Song Heejin to bring fans this beautiful, slightly jazzy song with all sorts of feel-good vibes. Plus, the music video animation is great to watch when you want to take your mind off your troubles for a while!
6. Red Velvet – “Happiness”
They’re girl group legends now, but for Red Velvet’s debut they pulled all the stops. “Happiness” is a little weird, a little wacky, and totally awesome. The unique sound and peppy melody leave no room for any blues, and is guaranteed to bring – you guessed it – happiness!
7. ENHYPEN – “Tamed-Dashed”
Right from the electric-guitar intro, you know that “Tamed-Dashed” is sure to make a bad day better! Before you know it, you’ll be totally rockin’ to this track. It’s upbeat and cheerful without being too sweet, and the summer-inspired visuals of the MV will definitely cheer you up as well.
8. ITZY – “WANNABE”
Ryujin’s shoulder dance may be the most iconic part of this song, but don’t underestimate the power of “WANNABE” to make you feel like you’re on top of the world! It’s the perfect reminder that there’s no one better for you to be than yourself, and it will definitely make you feel like the main character in your story.
9. SEVENTEEN – “HOME;RUN”
Not only is the mafia-inspired music video for “HOME;RUN” a fun watch, but the song itself is totally addictive! This song is so energetic that it’ll have you dancing along, and it’s guaranteed to turn a bad day around – or start any day off well! The choice is up to you.
10. TWICE – “Feel Special”
TWICE rules when it comes to cheerful tracks, and “Feel Special” is no exception. The melody is light and cheerful while still staying refined, and the rap section is definitely a standout. This song will brighten any day (or playlist!), but be warned – you might just get addicted to it!
11. BTS – “Euphoria”
BTS’s maknae Jungkook has a solo track from the “Love Yourself” album series, and “Euphoria” is everything it says in the title. The simple but uplifting melody is perfect for when you feel overwhelmed or stressed, and Jungkook’s gorgeous vocals are a surefire way to make any bad day feel better!
