SISTAR‘s Soyu gives us another beautiful love song when she collaborates with Urban Zakapa‘s Park Yong In and Kwon Soon Il. Not only does the song benefit from the trio’s warm voices, but it also feels like listening to an actual love story with their alternating lines.
Pair that with a music video that’s basically like watching a full K-drama in less than five minutes, and you’ve got the perfect theme song for any date.
K.Will always brings us touching love songs. “My Heart Is Beating” is no exception. The song explodes with K.Will’s powerhouse vocals against a soaring and beautiful instrumental, and it really makes you feel hopeful about love and life in general.

This song makes you want to grab the closest camera to you and immediately have a fun photoshoot with your valentine.
Veteran artist Lee Seung Chul seriously touches our hearts with his infectious and heartfelt single, “My Love.” While the song itself is a sentimental masterpiece, it’s the music video that really takes this one home.
The music video follows one man’s elaborate plan to propose to his girlfriend. The whole thing is all so romantic and sweet that it takes a serious toll on our feels, and you’ll probably need another box of tissues before you watch this one, too.
miss A‘s Suzy and EXO‘s Baekhyun give us a romantic and mature duet with their recent collaboration “Dream.” The duet flows so naturally that it feels more like a conversation than a song, and it’s no wonder why it is still nabbing high spots on music charts.
The song could definitely play as background music for your next intimate candlelit dinner, or even at your nearest café while you stare affectionately at your crush.

We really can’t talk about songs perfect for Valentine’s Day without mentioning this iconic duet, right? A Pink’s Eunji is back on the list, this time for her classic duet with Seo In Guk.
Not only did the two co-star in “Reply 1997,” but they also paired up again in this sweet duet for the drama’s soundtrack. “All For You” will forever stir our hearts, and it’ll definitely make us want to marathon the drama all over again.
Rounding up the list is BTS with “Just One Day.” The boys show us their sensitive side with this addictive R&B single, and the lyrics are all about what they would do if they could be with the one they love for a day.
While our valentines this year may not be BTS, we can’t help but fall for all of the boys when they sing and rap this tune straight to the camera in the music video.
