Top Ten Kpop Songs With a Sad Rhythm

The Top TenXW

1Lonely - 2NE1

I love the words to this song. The beat is slow and can be played with a guitar, but is still so easy to listen to and fall in love with. Almost everyone loves this song because of how 2NE1 sang it and how it sounds.

It was the first song that I hear from 2NE1 and I fell in love with it!

Although, I'm not really interested in 2NE1's oeuvre, I think this song is really amazing and touching without being too sad.

I do not know why, I think this song makes my heart calm

2Missing You - 2NE1

This is a very sad song, very nice, especially their harmonious accents. Bom's voice can make us cry. Very nice song. When it was released Missing You of 2ne1 topped 5 seoul music charts.

I can't listen to this song in public, because I cry every time I hear it

This song is the best among with It Hurts and Lonely too.. Wait! 2NE1's songs is in TOP 3! Who's BlackJack here? Look! 2NE1 Jjang!

3It's You - Super Junior

For me this is one of Super Junior's best songs going from line division to the music and lyrics, and their vocals.

The song lyric is so sad it's alove by one side, who spend his time and life for his lover even she with another man. - kkumhaelee

Super Junior is always the best in all genre, now and forever super junior...

The first sad song I heard

4Blue - BigBang

Blue is from Big Bang's most recent mini album. I love this song so much and it describes all of the hard times Big Bang went through in 2011 when they nearly broke up. Their mini album, Alive has such a great meaning with amazing songs that won them so many awards!

I'm fall in love with this song. The chorus is always destroy my head.

Blue definitely. Because it showcases the hard times that BigBang, especially GD and Daesung, went through in 2011. They really did a good job, after all that happened. It's a really touching song.

5Fiction - Beast

I really feel like after listening to this song so many times there is no forgetting it! I still cry to it till now

It has a really strong and sad meaning. Losing the one you love and not being able to move on...I can't but cry every time

How they delivered the song made it more painful they are so great singing with so much feels.

The lyrics is so poetic and they sang it very well

6Lies - Big Bang

Lies is a very nice song. Perfect.

A very classic song, reminiscent of those days

They have perfect chemistry and that MV was totally genius.
The song has a great meaning too, and the reason I got into KPOP was because of them. Even the newspapers say that BIGBANG is one of the best bands there is, and to be honest I totally agree.

7In My Dream - Super Junior KRY

This is my favorite heartbreaking song of KRY. I could feel the emotion. When I listen to it, it's like we are sharing the pain.

The song is amazing! KRY really sings the song with so much emotion and passion in their voices!

I like this song and the way they sing is just so emotional and simply breathtaking! SUPER JUNIOR IS AWESOME

One of a lovely kpop song

8Miracles In December - EXO

The first time I heart this song, I really cried even I don't understand the lyrics.

When you know the meaning ( you can search it on Google..) Its really really sad! You may cried even more!

THIS ONE REALLY MADE ME CRY! Believe, though I don't know it's meaning, I cried to it. The melody and it's rhythm is already a clue for it's sad meaning. Believe me, this one is good.

When I watched the music video, I cried so much. I didn't know the lyrics at that time, but the melody and visuals were very sad.

9Haru Haru - Big Bang

It's such a beautiful song. The lyrics and music combined make it so sad, yet still so beautiful.

HARU-HARU is a sad song, but there is rap in this song, so amazing!

Deep painful feelings behind those amazing rapping parts. The lyrics kill, the rhythm addicts, and the MV seems frustrating.

This should be in the top three of this list

10I Need U - BTS

This was what started the best moment in life trilogy, it's seriously so heartbreaking once you get to know the story behind the music video, it really gives you a different perspective at how you view a heartbreak.

It's my favorite song! The lyrics are beautiful, and if you go deeper into the fandom you will understand why it's so beautiful. The Music Video is very deep and have a lot of meanings. There are theories about it.

If you get deeper into the fandom, it's about brotherhood, how the roles committed suicide, how the main role misses his friends. But there a lot of theories som yeah o.o

I love the melody, vocal and the theories that got all ARMY headache. But It's JUST PERFECT!

?It Hurts - 2NE1

I like the meaning of the song. The pain of heartbreak.. This song always make me cry.. - erabellz

Nice production and costume of 2NE1 girls. I think the video inspired from Rapunzel, cause DARA look like Rapunzel here and the three girls are singing in the roof top. Amazing.

Nice song. Nice costume and make-up of Bom in the video.

This is so heart breaking

?In Heaven - JYJ

It's so touching, I adore it, I listen to it whenever I'm sad or happy, It encourage me to always keep the faith

Gave me goosebumps because of the message it shows and how their vocals arwe so awesome!

The lyrics are SO deep. Jaejoong (JYJ) composed this song himself because he was so sad that his friend committed suicide. It gives me goosebumps every single time.

The meaning behind this song was too much for me, and in this day and age it will hit a bit too close to home for a lot of people.

14Please Don't - K.Will

I didn't vote for this song but this is really sad. For those who say that this song is number one PLEASE CHECK OUT BIG BANG'S HARU HARU, it will make you cry the second nile river.

The music video plus his strong high vocals made me cry. When I was feeling sad and I always listened to this song. I think it should be number one though too.

K.will is the best singer in Korea. His voice can make me die also this song's video is quite different and surprising.

Her voice can make me cry

20Severely - FT Island

I cried as I listen to it for the first time. This songs makes me feel sad. So I think, FT Island expressed this song very well. I also watched its MV and its really heartbreaking. I admire Lee Hongki's acting. Great.

Why I <3 ft island song?.. just hear & you can feel the pain from your past love.. before this I never know Korean song that can touch my heart.. this is very first Korean band that produce great quality song of Rock Ballad.. some of their song and lyric are inspired from a real love story.. their song expresses how difficult someone to move on from love.
