One thing we all love about K-Pop is the random English phrases thrown in which we can sing along to. K-Pop fans have become used to not understanding what they’re listening to, so if the English makes no sense/is pronounced poorly it’s possible you may have missed it. Here’s our top 10 weirdest English lyrics in K-Pop!
1o. Big Bang – Fantastic Baby
“Mama, just let me be your lover”
Looking at this phrase literally, it’s pretty creepy. But as it can be easily passed off as a meaningless phrase, I’ve left this as number 10.
9. GD- MichiGO
“Mother, father, who are you?”
I find this strange. How can you not recognise your own parents? GD is always known for being crazy and inventive, but as far as his lyrics go this has to be the weirdest. Surprisingly enough, it’s actually a Korean idiom which refers to being so drunk, you can’t even recognise your parents.
8. Exo – Wolf
There’s nothing to complain about when it comes to the lyric itself, so this is more about their pronunciation. They’ve got the singing and choreography on point…now it’s time to work on their accents.
7. 2NE1 – Falling in Love
“Touch me over here touch me touch me over there”
I’m sure whoever wrote this didn’t intend for it to sound so awkward. The fact that it’s repeated so much throughout the song just makes it more obvious.
6. Super Junior – Mr Simple
“Because I naughty naughty”
SM Entertainment groups tend to be very good looking, but by getting a group of handsome men to sing this they might’ve cause a few fangirls to go crazy. To people who may not know K-Pop/Super Junior, this phrase can be just as awkward as 2NE1’s in “Falling in Love”.
5. B.A.P – Hurricane
“I wanna baby, I wanna baby”
This sentence feels incomplete. Unless Himchan really does want a baby.
4. Teen Top – Supa Luv
“Your love, plus my love, supa luv”
This phrase almost sounds like something from an anime. As it comes near the end of the song, the phrase ‘Supa Luv’ has almost lost it’s meaning, to the point of not being able to understand what they’re trying to say here.
3. 2NE1 – Follow Me
“I got that thang thang, if you know what I mean it goes bang bang. You can’t handle it”
With sweet little Sandara singing lyrics like this, I’m thankful for the toy gun in the music video. This is one of those things that could be interpretative in so many different ways.
2. Glam – Party XXO
“G.L.A.M. from the Mars, 1 2 3 4 ready to start”
Because of the way it’s pronounced, I didn’t even know they was singing English until I looked it up. This song uses a lot of English and most of it is understandable, but this one line feels like it ruins the flow.
1. Exo – Mama.
“Careless, careless. Shoot anonymous, anonymous. Heartless, mindless. No one. who care about me?”
These chants at the beginning feel like someone’s just taken random words and thrown them together. It doesn’t make any sense, but nonetheless still sounds cool.
