Top Ten Kpop Songs With a Sad Rhythm

The Top Ten

1 It Hurts - 2NE1 It Hurts - 2NE1 Cover Art

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

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.

They way they sang brings out the feeling meant in the lyrics of this song. From the first time until now, this has been the saddest song I have ever heard throughout these years

2 Lonely - 2NE1 Lonely - 2NE1 Cover Art

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 fell in love with this song the minute I heard it. Regardless of rhythms or lyrics, I still live it. This song is recommendable so I chose this song.

3 Missing 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!

Very unique mysterious Instrumental adding Boms unique belting, CL's fiery rasp, Minzys smooth tone, Dara's sweet lines and Lydia Parks Amazing backing vocals.

4 It'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.

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

I love the heart beat in this song, vote for suju please

5 Blue - Bigbang Blue - Bigbang Cover Art

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.

I love it because it makes me cry..

6 Fiction - 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

The music, the beat, the lyrics, the execution... All so melancholic but so beautiful at the same time. After listening to Fiction I don't feel like listening to any other song. That's how beautiful it is.

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.

7 Lies - Big Bang

Lies is a very nice song. Perfect.

A very classic song, reminiscent of those days

It make me cry

It's a really deep song if u look at the lyrics

8 In 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

9 Miracles In December - EXO

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

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

This song makes me cry every time I listen to it. The Chinese version especially since it reminds me of Luhan who is not anymore in Exo.

10 I Need U - BTS I Need U - BTS Cover Art

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

The song itself is one of the best songs I have ever listen to before. A twist with hip-hop ish type rhythm. Lyrics are truly heart-breaking and very nice to listen to, even when you are happy. Music video is really cool because of the plot, the roles are played really well and overall is just amazing.

The Contenders

11 In Heaven - JYJ In Heaven - JYJ Cover Art

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.

12 Haru 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.

Honestly this should be first. Not even a vip and I cry every time I listen to it. The lyrics are beautiful and not normally superficial.

13 Let Me Be the One - SS501

Seriously a perfect song. Makes you really want to find the one...

My favorite song forever

Perfect, I don't know why;but this song, made me cry! It's really touching...

Sooo touching me :(

14 Please Don't - K.Will

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

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.

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.

Nice rhythm and nice ending of the music video..

15 Butterfly - BTS Butterfly - BTS Cover Art

YEs tgis is very sad

This song tells that they don't want to lose someone. Like if they let go of "someone" 's hand, "someone" will fly away and break. Like "someone" 's there but for some reason, they can’t reach it. Just like a butterfly.

One of the best songs by bts. the kind of song youd want to listen for relaxation and peace

16 Quasimodo - Shinee

It always makes me cry inside... It always breaks me... Those voices... I just can feel the pain every time I listen to it

These guys prove that they can well sing the ballad songs too.

Perfect for rainy days.

I cried when I heard it.

17 Why Did I Fall In Love With You? - DBSK

I love this song! I love DBSK!

I love this song but isn't it Japanese?

This song has a deep meaning

The best really. Most played on my itunes library.

18 Promise - Exo

Beautiful lyrics written by members and very meaningful, it's rare they express their feelings through songs but this one was pure, raw emotion, especially the rap. I cried when I heard this song and still tear up. They sound desperate even, it gives me flashbacks to when all of them were so upset by losing members

Honestly, I barely cry to songs but this was the first time that I had tears in my eyes when listening to a song it was so sweet and so sad, a promise that I will be with you, That no matter what I'll stay by you

It's just literally a promise. Really touched my heart when I first heard it because it reminded me of all the hard times exo had faced in 2014

Both Chinese and Korean Version have the most beautiful lyrics that it makes my cry all the time...

19 Please - Kim Hyun Jung

Honestly, I like this song more than "Break down", I think Kim hyun jung proved that he is really talent by this song!

20 It's All Lies - B.A.P

Their voices sound so beautiful in this song and the lyrics are so beautiful and well written

Beautifully well written and perfect execution of the vocals. Clap clap clap.

The lyrics are so meaningful plus the vocals are well executed

I love B.A.P I hope they continue to make more music!

21 Dear Mom - Girls Generation (SNSD)

This song is really deep it reminds me of my grandmother who died and was like me mother

This song is super sad but its beautiful because this is for our mother

When I first listen to this song, I cried... This is really a nice song~

Saddest Kpop song especially seeing the members emotions while singing

22 Downpour - I.O.I Downpour - I.O.I Cover Art

The fact that this was released before the group's disbandment makes me tear up already. Woozi is really a talented song-writer knowing he made a million of people cry with this song.

It's a song that you must cry to... avoiding tears while listening to it is almost impossible

This song always makes me cry

I'll cry if hear this song

23 Someday - U-KISS Someday - U-KISS Cover Art

It's one of the BeSt you kiss song I've ever heard of.. It captures my heart with their beautiful voices. I love you kiss!

U-Kiss FIGHTING forever!
I'm a Kiss Me and always remain as one!

This song can make you better. You should hear and feel it by your heart well.

It's such a nice song..
