count down the best MVs of last month with us
As with last month, the huge number of amazing videos made this ranking very, very difficult. To make our decision, we considered how well the video fit the song and how interesting and engaging it was. We also considered things like cinematography and editing. Here’s what came out on top.
10. Run – Sorn
We dare you to keep a straight face during this music video. Sorn‘s personality comes through in the free-spirited footage and sweetens up her solo track.
9. Wifi Boy – HoA
HoA‘s quirky offering proves that you don’t need a big budget or complicated choreo to create an unforgettable MV.
8. Love% – Demian ft. DAWN
Shifting gears completely from the previous two entries, this video has Demian confronting his darker self and getting a visit from his inner child. It’s creative, beautifully shot and adds new depth to the song.
7. DO or NOT – PENTAGON
The boys of PENTAGON vie for the attention of one lady through various means in a video that is fun and upbeat just like the title track of their new album.
6. Nerves – DPR IAN
In Nerves, DPR IAN presents a duality–a man who is trying to convince himself and everyone else that’s he’s fine after breakup and one who is falling apart inside. The video perfectly illustrates the theme of the song. Be forewarned if you haven’t watched yet–some of the visuals may be disturbing.
5. SEOUL – GHOST9
This video captures your attention with dynamic choreography and bold effects, but what we really love is how it puts Seoul‘s history with its present and its high-tech future all in one place.
4. Bambi – Baekhyun
With vibes that are decidedly noir and costuming that seems to give a nod to the King of Pop Michael Jackson, Bambi is a true feast for the eyes.
3. Lilac – IU
IU boards a train and fights baddies then disembarks only to get ready to do it all over again in this imaginative video.
2. IYAH – Kang Seungyoon
Telling the story of losing and then rediscovering one’s love of music, this music video brought tears to our eyes.
1. Get Away – VERIVERY
A complex nightmarish story, heavy symbolism and gorgeous visuals made this video our top pick of the month. I wrote an in-depth analysis of the MV when it first came out, which discusses how much thought went into it all.
