top music videos of may 2021

check out our favorite mvs from kbands, kpop groups and solos released this month

10. 0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You) by TxT

With this MV, TxT continues their tradition of putting out story-telling videos that go to places you wouldn’t expect. The tale told here is one of rebellion and suits the sound of the boys’ new single perfectly.

9. Bittersweet by Mingyu and Wonwoo

Like the sound of the song, Mingyu and Wonwoo of SEVENTEEN‘s new music video gives off 1940s vibes thanks to a warm palette and clever cinematography, and that last moment when the two of them walk off in the rain manages to capture the mood of Casablanca‘s bittersweet buddy ending.

8. Ain’t About You by Wonho ft. Kiiara

Alternating between Wonho in a dark hotel room and Kiiara under the bright desert sun, this video perfectly captures the theme of this song about two people who are worlds apart and unable to reconcile.

7. Black Mirror by ONEUS

Disco meets Michael Jackson and ONEUS‘ incredible dance skills in this MV that is so much fun to watch from start to finish.

6. Not the End by Highlight

Not the End is a song about new beginnings, and the MV conveys this theme visually through soft spring colors and lush greenery. It’s a soothing feast for the senses.

5. Easy by WJSN: The Black

In this sexy, brilliantly shot MV, WJSN: The Black puts a new twist on the heist theme found in many kpop videos, making the whole thing original and familiar at once.

4. Happen by HEIZE

Happen is about the role fate plays in love and loss, and the music video featuring Song Joongki of Vincenzo fame reflects this with its story about missed connections.

3. Bonnie & Clyde by Yuqi

Yuqi gave us a second fresh perspective on the heist trope with her debut solo MV. The visual elements add up to a story about a woman whose years of living dangerously are on the cusp of coming to the end.

2. Hot Sauce by NCT Dream

With a palette as spicy as the condiment the song is named for, bold visuals from the boys and saucy moments, Hot Sauce is an MV you can watch again and again and again.

1. We Go by fromis_9

Travel plans have been canceled for more than a year due to the pandemic, but fromis_9 manages to take us on a trip anyway. With every rewatch, we find ourselves smiling from the moment the video starts to the end, and in the times we’re living in, the kind of carefree joy that We Go sparks is more precious than anything.
