Do you have a song or two (or a whole playlist, really) that, when it comes on, fills you with so much energy that you don't need caffeine or sugar anymore? I feel like a bunch of K-Pop songs can fit such a description, and believe me when I tell you that it was so hard to pick which to include in this article. So, don't call me out for missing some of your favorites - instead, share them with us!
ATEEZ - Guerrilla
I probably shouldn't start our own Guerrilla with this one, but I do want to start punching things when this comes on. The song kind of makes you feel like you're unstoppable.
Stray Kids - MIROH
It's most probably the energetic "STRAY KIDS WHOOO," the insane rap and intense yet super fun dance that makes me feel like I can take over the world and push through whatever life throws at me because, in this rough jungle, I was the one who ran into it.
fromis_9 - Love Bomb
Despite the somewhat sad instrumental, their warm voices inherently evoke feelings of happiness. An underrated yet legendary song, this song will certainly make you explode all of your energy bombs.

SEVENTEEN - Aju Nice
Even if you're not a fan, you'd know this legendary song. It's the song that will make you feel VERY, VERY NICE. Fans absolutely love this track, and it's even better in a loop.
The Boyz - Maverick
Member Kevin might not know what MAVERICK means (a person who thinks and acts in an independent way), but what we know is that this track definitely pumps in so much energy and adrenaline, making you indisputable as if you can take over a city of night.
SuperM - JOPPING
Three years later, we're still jumping and popping, we JOPPING, and don't forget Mark's legendary line will forever be iconic.

BTS - So What
It's 2 am, and you're staying up late working on something and in need of that little pick-me-up? Here's the song for that. This song makes you want to run around late at night with a bunch of friends, not giving a care in the world because you are young, wild, and free.
