When K-pop Idols Covered Their Favorite Idol Songs

1. Jungkook - Fencing Man
We love our Golden Maknae because he proves to be one of the most talented idols to exist since forever. Not only can he dance, rap but he can also effortlessly cover his idols' song in a sweet touching voice. It's hard to look at this song the same way after this.
2. Seventeen - Sorry Sorry
When one large boy group covers another large boy group. The members showed their praise to an iconic KPOP song with a remix of their own that shows off not only their vocals but also their powerful choreography.
3. BTS - Come Back Home
The Ultimate Kings get a Remake. Seo Taiji & Boys are considered the forefathers of K-pop and they changed the Korean Music Industry in the 90's. They have always been an image of success and inspiration for aspiring idols and BTS the hottest boy group did their own interpretation of their famous "Come Back Home" for Seo Taiji's 25t- anniversary.
4. Big Bang - We're Back Again
Lee Moon Sae wrote Sunset Glow and it received an amazing revival in 2008 by the kings, Big Bang. The original was great but Big Bang took the remix up a notch.
5. Girls' Generation
Girls' Generation got their name from this song from the late 80s written by Lee Seung Chul who came to help the girls write their own version of the song. Lee Seung Chul even joined the girls' celebration by joining the girls on stage during one of their promotions. Check out the original from 1989 below as well:

6. Super Junior - Happiness
As a super-group, it only makes sense to reprise a song from another SM Entertainment super-group H.O.T. The song still remains an amazing hit with its bubbly and happy vibe. Check out the original by H.O.T. from 1997 below:

7. Tablo - Eyes, Nose, Lips
No one is a bigger fan of YG than the YG family members themselves. As labelmates, it makes it easier to collab and work together. After Taeyang released his "Eyes, Nose, Lips," Tablo released his own English cover with his labelmate's vocals.
8. IU - Sleepless Nights
With her newest comeback, IU released two covers of older songs, one being "Sleepless Rainy Nights" by Kim Gun Mo. Her beautiful silky voice and aesthetically pleasing visuals turned the famous hip hop song into her own style gaining hits worldwide.
9. Red Velvet - Be Natural
With an original by iconic SM Entertainment K-POP Girl group S.E.S., Red Velvet had their own take to remake and revamp the style of S.E.S to make it in their own seductive style.
10. VIXX - Love Equation
VIXX is a generally dark group full of mysterious and dark concepts but for a change, they opted for a heart throbbing gentle song in their reprise for R. ef's "Farewell Formula."
