From the creepiest and darkest videos to the most adorable ones, check out our list of Top 10 Halloween-Inspired Kpop Music Videos (*in no particular order).
Nobody does “creepy” quite so well as VIXX, and we could probably include almost all their videos on this list. Perhaps their most famous video with a creepy concept though, “Voodoo Doll” really draws you in with the stunning visuals. I have to say that this music video really does spooky well! Vixx and those eyes? Yikes !!!! This music video truly brought the voodoo doll concept to life!
Shinhwa’s “Wild Eyes” was definitely creepy as it started with a doll staring out in the beginning of the video. It almost felt like the “Chucky” movies all over again. You didn’t know why, but you just felt like that doll was spooky! The ending with the television and the eye just served to make the video even weirder.
In this music video, all the members of BOYFRIEND are vampires and are fighting a woman who betrays them all. The vampires go after her with a vengeance, but she proves to be too fast and has the victory in the end, disappearing in a totally twisted way. With creepy contacts and vampire teeth, this is a great music video for Halloween!
Sunmi’s music video is one of my favorites because the concept is so perfect for the song! She plays a vampire, while actor Yoon Park, who was a rookie at the time, is the handsome young guy being possessed by Sunmi’s presence. She is haunting his dreams, wanting to take him under the moonlight. This vampire beauty takes stalking and haunting to a new level!
Not only does this song have a great Halloween theme, but it’s super inspiring as well. “Everybody hates me, but you love me,” sing the guys of the group, while little kids dressed as villains and “bad” characters come in and tear up the store. It seems the love is mutual in this music video!
Maybe not the most politically correct video on the list, this song still manages to be catchy and colorful while portraying all the group members in a mental hospital. A nice break from the darker, scarier concepts on the list, this music video is a little quirky, a little weird and totally adorable. In other words, it’s 100% Kpop! Check out the song below.
With this dark music video showing Jaejoong bound in chains and unable to escape, I feel he is just hurt and angry. Singing “you are mine” with his trademark, rock sound and displaying an abundance of dark imagery from skulls, snakes, crows, masks and more, this is one dark music video from the world of Kpop.
This classic MV is simple enough in concept. They are at a dance club, and a mob of zombies come. After all this time, “Lovey-Dovey” is still a hit, and I have to say the zombies dance was amazing!
This is probably one of the most disturbing and most confusing Kpop music videos ever! In this MV, you just suddenly see body parts flying by like….. wait, what just happened? This is one of the Kpop videos that’s absolutely perfect for Halloween!
I love this music video! It was very much inspired by the crazy Joker story. The plot follows the guys as they go to rob a bank, all dressed in a Joker-esque masks, and end up having a huge party! I loved every second of it and thought the concept was something only Block B could pull off. After all, aren’t they the only group that were serve up their own heads on a platter?
