Many K-pop MVs are comprehensively invested in both music and image quality. Not only do they have beautiful scenes, many products also attract viewers with many special details. Accordingly, a number of MVs have delighted the audience when they were inspired by famous works of art in the world.
Feel My Rhythm (Red Velvet)
Recently, Red Velvet has just made a comeback to the K-pop market with the song Feel My Rhythm. The SM girl group has always been famous for their strange and mysterious concepts and this comeback did not disappoint fans. The MV is currently causing a fever on social networks with its serious investment, especially the beauty of the members in MV is definitely top-notch.
Besides, fans can’t help but gasp at the artistic details in the MV. Especially, appearing at the end of the MV is a famous painting called Garden of Earthly Delights by artist Hieronymus Bosch. The work impressively recreates the three spaces of heaven, earth and hell.
In addition, in the MV, the Red Velvet members also impersonate many other paintings such as Woman with a Parasol, Madame Monet and Her Son and Wheatstacks (End of Summer) by Claude Monet, Ophelia (John Everett Millais), The Swing (Jean-Honoré Fragonard).
Blood Sweat & Tears (BTS)
Many BTS MVs are created with great effort, especially in the visual side with a lot of small but meaningful details, the MV Blood Sweat & Tears released in 2016 for example. Although it is a musical product, many people are surprised when the MV is influenced by a literary work.
Accordingly, Blood Sweat & Tears is inspired by the novel Demian by author Hermann Hesse. Watching the MV, fans can’t take their eyes off the lively and attractive images that the BTS members portrayed.
My House (2PM)
2PM created a stir when they released the hit “My House“. The MV for “My House” impresses viewers with how different fairy tales are intertwined in a smart and engaging way.
Classic tales such as Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Romeo and Juliet, Little Red Riding Hood and Alice in Wonderland all appear in the “My House” MV one after another, making it satisfying to watch.
The Red Shoes (IU)
The album Modern Times shows off IU’s diverse and unique musicality. The title track “The Red Shoes” and its MV gains the most attention because it is influenced by the fairy tale of the same name written by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. In the song, IU wears a pair of red shoes that make viewers think of Karen in the original story, a peasant girl who is forced to dance in her red shoes without stopping.
Heart Attack (Chuu/LOONA)
In 2017, Chuu (LOONA) released the song “Heart Attack” with a cheerful and vibrant melody, but the MV tells a heartbreaking story. The MV is an adaptation of the legendary fairytale The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen. In the MV’s final scene, Chuu suffers from the same sad ending as in the story when all three matches are burned out one by one.
