Your Introduction to K-Pop: 4 Music Videos That Bring Alive The Korean Culture

Let us take a look at some of the music videos where Korean culture played an essential role.

August D aka Suga of BTS – The Best of BTS

Released in 2020, this hit hip-hop song by Agust D is shot in a famous and well-preserved historically-themed location called the Dae Jang Geum Park. The place was built to showcase how South Koreans used to live in the past. The artist wore a black and gold Korean ensemble that represented the traditional outfit. One of the shots in the music video also takes us through the old market of the country and shows how the locals dress up.
