Lyricist Kim Eana names the top 3 idol artists with the best songwriting abilities

AKP STAFF
KIM EANA

On the February 5 airing of MBC Every1's 'Video Star,' lyricist Kim Eana named the idol artists with the best songwriting abilities. 

Kim Eana picked IU, Zico, and BTS as the artists who write the best lyrics. She explained, "IU is just on another level now. As for Zico, his lyrics are very true to himself. For example, in 'Artist,' he talks as both human Zico and celebrity Zico. For BTS, multiple members tend to write the lyrics together. When members write together like that, you can notice the editing points but their sum of it is all so perfect. I especially felt it with the lyrics of 'IDOL.' 


  1. Zico
  2. BTS
  3. IU
  4. VIDEO STAR

It's her opinion, and she's allowed to have that, no need to put groups down because she mentioned them. Everybody has their own personal opinion of who they think are great idol lyricist, I mean in my opinion I think bang Yong guk, shines jonghyun, and highlights jun hyung, saay, and etc are great kpop lyricists.

I know that there are disagreements with who's the better writer, but let's not forget that she's coming as a KOREAN speaker. So she knows the nuance, literary devices, and subtle lines that's hard to translate to English. There're a lot of good lyricists but she's probably bringing those artists up because of meanings and things we can't appreciate. It's not just about stringing poetic words together but also the content and the message they're saying. We can all respect her opinion.
