5 Soft K-Pop Songs For Relaxation

Hello, friends! Today’s post is a little different, but things have been ~wild~ lately. I started online classes this Monday so things are getting busier, and with everything as hectic and anxiety-inducing as it is, I’ve been turning to music for relaxation and to help me get into a productive mindset. 🎡

I shared a few of my favorite K-Pop songs for studying and reading a while ago, but I wanted to give an update with more recent favorites:

1. I’m OK by Crude Play

This song is the OST from the K-Drama The Liar and His Lover starring Joy from Red Velvet and Lee Hyun Woo. πŸ’œ It’s been one of my favorites for a while because of its melody and thoughtful lyrics. Crude Play isn’t a real band sadly, but their two songs released are my faves!

2. Smile Flower by Seventeen

I was actually introduced to this song by Laura, and I fell in love with it the second I heard it. 🌻 Seventeen is definitely one of my favorite K-Pop boy bands (alongside BTS) so this is one of their many songs I love.

3. 11:11 by Taeyeon

Taeyeon has always been one of my favorite K-Pop artists, and I love listening to her songs. πŸŒ™ 11:11 is one of her soft songs that I absolutely love, and it’s a great listen when you’re trying to unwind and relax.

4. Sunshine by GFriend

If I could only pick one K-Pop group to listen to for the rest of my life, it would easily be GFriend. β˜€οΈ They’re super energetic and fun to watch in variety shows, and they’re such talented singers too. Sunshine is one of my favorite soft songs that they sing.

5. Lemon by Umji

If GFriend is my favorite K-Pop group, Umji is my bias. She has the sweetest, most angelic voice, and I absolutely love her cover of Lemon. πŸ‹ I wish she could record a studio version of this song, but regardless, I always find myself listening to this cover again and again.

Bonus: Le Festin by Stella Jang

If you’ve ever watched the Disney movie Ratatouille, you’ve probably heard the song Le Festin. Stella Jang is one of my recent favorite artists, and I love her cover of this song. πŸ‡«πŸ‡· She speaks 7 languages and spent 10 years in France!

  1. I love 11:11 by Taeyeon and Umji’s voice in also probably my favorite in GFRIEND! I have recently got into Stray Kids and I found their song Neverending Story also really suitable for relaxing. πŸ™‚


    1. Ahh I’m so glad that we have similar tastes 😍 I haven’t listened to Stray Kids before, but I’ll definitely check them out!!


    1. Ahh right?? She’s such a great singer!! And oooo I definitely need to check out their songs. πŸ’–


  2. I love 11:11 – Taeyeon is my go-to when I need some music therapy. This list is great, definitely going to be cycling through these in the next couple of days because life has been absolute crazy. Surprisingly, I’ve been listening to a lot of upbeat songs (I guess to keep my energy up) but one of my recent favorite slower ones has been I*ZONE’s Daydream. Good luck with your online classes!


    1. Right?? OOOO I really like I*ZONE’s La Vie en Rose so I’ll definitely check out Daydream. And I agree listening to these songs are so important to keeping our mood up πŸ₯°


  3. Ooh I love this post! I’ve been getting into more slow pop/lo-fi style pop songs for relaxation when I’m not doing work. I’m definitely going to add some of these to my playlist πŸ™‚ I love to put a good playlist on and work on my bullet journal or just doodle when I want to unwind. I also just started my week of online classes on Monday, which was also a bit hectic for me. I hope that the transition is going well for you!

    1. Ahh I’m so glad that you’re excited for these!! I’ve started working on my bullet journal recently too and it’s been super fun 😍 I also can’t wait for your bookclub!!


  4. I listen to quite a lot of kpop now but its usually boy groups, I recently discovered Timeless by NCT U, Universe by EXO which I love they’re relaxing songs. Also Aurora by Ateez I love but I love all Ateez songs (hihi I’m an atiny xD) This month though I’ve been listening to a lot of Monsta X and EXO somehow haha, and BTS songs as well keep playing on my youtube. Basically I listen to Ateez, EXO, Monsta X a lot and some TXT songs, some Stray Kids. I’m just lost to the Kpop hole haha


    1. Ahh I’m the opposite and listen to more girl groups than boy groups πŸ™ˆ and OOO I love BTS and know a couple EXO and TXT songs.


      1. The girl groups I listen to the most would be Everglow, Blackpink, Dreamcatcher and (G)-IDLE but it’s only a few songs from each group haha. BTS are ok, I like a few of their songs same with TXT and I like a lot of EXO πŸ™‚


  5. I listened to all of these songs while writing a post, and I’ve gotta give props to you, because all six of these were truly relaxing to listen to! πŸ₯Ί This post also came at the right time for me, because all I’ve been doing right now is listening to k-drama OSTs and the occasional k-pop song πŸ˜‚


    1. AHHH I’m so glad!! and YESSS OSTs honestly are great background music, and I’m glad this was all good for your writing 😍
