The world has seen a series of hard-hitting events after the past seven days, with many uniting in a time of reflection and emotion. However, one thing has been for certain; music has still continued to lift spirits throughout the world and often bring peace to the chaos. Some musicians within the South Korean industry have either postponed or delayed their return for particular reasons but there have been a few notable songs that have released within the week that have given a time of escape or happiness to fans and many others. Here are a select few chosen by the UKP Team.

EXO’s Lay has continued his blaze in each corner of the world and has released “LIT”, a digital single complete with a music video including traditional kingdoms, swords and dragons. We can only imagine what the SFX budget was to create this fiery concept.

TWICE continues the ethereal theme this week by giving you “MORE & MORE”; adding more to their colourful style by becoming tempting princesses of Eden.

After a long wait, we finally get official music from YG’s upcoming boy group, TREASURE. Although it is a solo track from member, Bang Ye Dam; the acoustic pop track “WAYO” may be giving us a taste of what’s to come as their debut draws closer.

Stray Kids are currently teasing their next Korean release; “GO生” but they have dropped a special treat for STAYs. Currently being used as the opening and closing themes for Crunchyroll Original series, Tower Of God; “TOP” and “SLUMP” has now been released as an official Japanese single.

Finally, the annual BTS FESTA has begun to lift the spirits of ARMY. Each year, the group hold a special event to celebrate their debut anniversary which includes video content, radio programs and special songs from the members; including Jungkook’s new Soundcloud release, “Still With You”; a song that bares his emotions to his fans during this tough time.
