K-pop Summer Bops

It’s officially summer and we’ve listed all our favorite K-pop Summer Bops into one handy list to set in the summer well. Use a kiddie pool to go to the beach in your own backyard, have a BBQ, work on your tan and listen to these bops selected just for you!

Here we go!

Red Velvet – Red Flavor

This was released two years ago but definitely left an impact on the entire K-community.


Honestly, the four boys on a beach and I’m already vibing with it. 

Hyolyn – See Sea

Hyolyn dancing on a beach, with a bop of a song, so yeah this is a must in your summer playlist.

ATEEZ – Wave

I couldn’t forget our favorite pirate idol group.

AOA – Bingle Bangle

This chorus refuses to leave my mind ever since it came out. Every time someone even so much as mentions the word ‘bingle’, I’m ready with the iconic ‘BINGLE BANGLE’.


This is a song you’d play during a campfire after a long day at the beach. Maybe, you’ve already had a couple of beers, join me while I’m chanting the ‘honeymoon’ in the chorus. 

Twice – Dance The Night Away

I can’t believe it’s already been two years since this bop came out. Absolute legends!

Triple H – So Fresh

This funky song can’t be missing from your summer playlist. 

Mamamoo – Egotistic

We need some sexyness with these vocal queens in our list as well. To be honest it was a toss up between ‘Egotistic’ and ‘Starry Night’.

EXO – Kokobop

This song goes from groovy to EDM, to funky. Legends.

Girls’ Generation – Party 

ICONS y’all.

Jessi – Down

I literally couldn’t miss out on this gem.


I’ve always linked this bop with a summery feeling because it’s a whole BOP.

BOL4 – Travel

I love this song so much, and if I could actually travel places I would.

Chung Ha – Why don’t you know ft. Nucksal

Chung Ha is an icon and a half, so of course I was gonna include her. 

F(X) – Hot Summer

It’s literally in the title, you guys.

Jay Park – Drive ft. GRAY

Certified summer jam.

SHINee – View

A classic to brighten up your day.

Sistar – Touch my body

No Summer K-pop list is complete without at least one Sistar song. These undisputed Summer Queens were releasing summer hits every year and we love them for it.
