Top 5 Kpop MVs: Dynamic Duets

A favorite Korean duet cover unexpectedly popped up on my feed again this week and I knew it was a sign. I’ve been waiting for the perfect time to shine the spotlight on these five amazing duos! What could be better than famous international artists pairing up with equally stellar Korean music stars?! Are you curious? Join me after the jump!! 

Christopher X ChunHa – ‘When I Get Old’

Danish singer Christopher (known for his hit single ‘Bad’) teams up with ChungHa for this collaborative single. It’s a great juxtaposition of vocals, with ChungHa bringing the husky low tones and Christopher hitting those high notes! 

Peder Elias X Cha EunWoo – ‘Bonfire’

Norwegian singer Peder Elias has paired up with several Korean artists, but this duet with Cha Eun Woo is my favorite! They have sweet harmonies and I love the simple guitar accompaniment. Stick around after the song for a cute behind-the-scenes interaction between the two singers as well!

Lauv X Minnie – ‘All 4 Nothing’

This special stage feels like a slow walk on a summer’s night! Covering a song off his 2022 album of the same name, popular American singer-songwriter Lauv and (G)-IDLE’s Minnie are a lovely combination of vocals! 

Jay X Yuuri – ‘Dry Flower’

Japanese singer-songwriter Yuuri and Jay of ENHYPEN team up for this ballad about lost love. The best part is hearing the unique sound each of them bring to the same song!  Yuuri leads with a clear voice, expressing wistful acceptance. However, Jay’s angst over the heartbreak can be felt through his strong and gravelly vocals. 

Sole X Sung SiKyung – ‘Need You’

This pair of Korean sing-songwriters is perfect combination! Sole’s voice is full and beautiful (I love her jazzy ad libs!) and Sung SiKyung’s tone is warm, with a just hint of smokiness. They come together to create a magical musical journey in ‘Need You’!

BONUS TRACK: SuHyun X D.O – ‘Rewrite the Stars’

Chills! I got actual chills listening to this cover!! I’m not going to say I saved the best for last, but . . .  I’ll just let this mini-duet between AKMU’s SuHyun and EXO’s D.O speak for itself. I’m going to need a whole album of these two singing together or, at the very least, a full rendition of this song — it was too short!!!


I hope you enjoyed these dynamic duos as much as I did! Have a favorite? Drop down and share in the comments!!

화이팅!
