Legendary Remake Albums by K-Pop Artists


Remake albums have been a consistent trend in k-pop, even before the genre became global in recent years. They are a great way to listen to old classics, remastered and remixed in the releasing artists' unique ways, and it's a delight for newer k-pop fans to be able to discover old-time hits that are modernized and re-released.

While there are many groups that release singles or digital singles of remake tracks, there are artists who release a whole dedicated album just for remakes. This means the entire discography consists of soundtracks that were already released. While some fans may argue that that isn't genuinely the artists' full album, the releasing artist will have most likely paid the copyright fees, and it actually may be even more difficult to release a remake album.

The reason is that some of the songs that are remade are legendary hits, and it takes time and effort to dedicate the song to remake it and make it different and stick out, so yes -- they do require quite a bit of dedication; it is not merely just taking a song and re-singing it and releasing it.

Today, we'll be checking out a few remake albums by your favorite artists and checking out a few of their legendary tracks from that album! Maybe you'll even know some, and maybe you'll discover that the song was already released a while back! So make sure to check out the list, and let us know which album is YOUR favorite!

I actually like Suhyun and Jung Hae In's cover of Meaning of You 10x better than IU's or the original. Just listen to this beauty... ^^
