Woohoo! Long time Nasties will remember when we did one of these videos for myISH long time ago, when we outlined the 7 Most Bizarre Kpop Videos. This week, we’re doing another video for them as well. Woohoo! They talk about Kpop often: it seems only fair that we should be able to talk there once in a while as well!

Anyhow, we decided to look more into special Kpop Covers, since we were so especially inspired by 4Minute’s reinterpretation of Milkshake. We asked you on our Facebook page a short while ago if you knew of any good covers, and you shared a bunch of awesome ones with us. Thank you! We used a lot of your suggestions in this list.

Side note: we didn’t pick and Jay Park of LED Apple covers. That’d be cheating! They’re fluent in English, and so mentioning them in this playlist wouldn’t be fully fair. Our idea was that lots of people who don’t speak Korean do covers of Psy videos. Why not see what it’s like for people who don’t speak English to do covers of English songs? Some of the covers were really quite bad, and we didn’t include those. The rest on our list, though, were really quite cool, we think.

Also, ultra mega props go out to Eunhyuk and Leeteuk. Respect level up 100 points for them. And we’re not being snarky here. Really: we loved how they covered Sexyback, because it’s JUST LIKE HOW WE COVER KPOP SONGS when we go to Noraebang. So often we’re ultra inspired to sing a song when we’re in the noraebang, and then we type it in and we realize, holy sugarbeans, this song is way too fast and we don’t know 80% of the words. Can I just sing the chorus? TAKE EM TO THE CHORUS! “Lipstick” was so difficult to sing. All we know is “Lipstick Stain no me no” and then “OH MOH MOH MOHHHHH!”

So, that’s it for the playlist. Did we miss out on any good covers? Let us know! Also, there was a point to this week’s playlist as well:

4Minute’s “Milkshake” – Never forget.

  1. you that KBS Gayo Daejun a few years ago where Davichi with 2 other singers (forgot) were singing Stand Up For Love. I thought it was beautiful

  2. Jonghyun’s As long as You love Me

  3. I lost it during the sexy back vid, hilarious.

  4. I know I’m really really late XD
    I dunno why I haven’t seen this video before >:|
    anyway the only cover I haven’t seen mentioned in the comments (haven’t read them all though :P) and that I love is “Greatest love of all” by WHITNEY HOUSTON covered by JUNSU (Xiah) when he was still a trainee at the age of 14 <3
    I'm so sad it's so short, but I don't even know if a longer version exists, if it does, give me the link please (*° o °*)/


  5. Taeyeon singing Hush Hush was brilliant. She didn’t have too much engrish and she might have changed the lyrics a bit, but she was dancing and her voice was phenomenal. Taeyeon singing Take a Bow was good as well, as well as her cover of L.O.V.E. Speaking of L.O.V.E., SHINee also did a good cover on it (not as well as Taeyeon, but hers barely had an accent and, well…) and Onew “scatted” a tad during the saxophone part.

    Also, any and all of Onew’s English covers are brilliant surely.

    T.O.P’s cover of No Diggity was great too! :D

  6. One of my favourite artists sings English songs well (I think)… But maybe I’m biased by my obsession with him – Park Hyo Shin’s and Tei’s duet cover of Beyonce’s Listen and Park Hyo Shins version of Sunday Morning by Maroon 5 Is also good. Whilst it is in Korean, and technically similar to JB singing in English, Park Hyo Shin is amazing covering everyone. His cover of Taeyang’s only look at me is much more interesting than the original. <3 for 박효신!

  7. too bad the video was done BEFORE B.A.P had their America tour and Daehyun & Youngjae covered “I believe I can fly” that would’ve been a worth a mention!

  8. Have you never heard INFINITE’s Sungkyu singing in English?! He doesn’t speak English at all, but he can sing it amazingly well and sound fantastic doing it. That boy’s voice is like warm honey. Here he is singing Insomnia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ptb5prduGE and here he is doing an almost perfect imitation of the lead singer from The Calling’s voice in “Wherever You Will Go” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjalF3syZm0 I DIED when I heard his voice on this one.

  9. Eunhyuk also did an AMAZING cover of “Cracks of My Broken Heart”, though I remember hearing you say you dislike ballad-y songs, and this is an extremely pretty song, so you probably would not like it as much as I did. Anyway, Martina, not to make you feel worse, but Eunhyuk’s got a six-pack too.

  10. I only laugh, because while many Americans are hating on the Korean pronounciation of “their” song, I appreciate and love it every time a Korean idol covers an English song. It shows us how small a language barrier can actually be when it comes to music. The words aren’t what matter, it’s the feeling you get from a singer that counts. ^^ <3 :)

  11. Brown Eyed Girls did a superb job at covering Emotions by Destiny’s Child! You guys really gotta check it out if u havent already~ These girls are so amazingly talented! Their harmony <3 & how original of Miryo to include that rap hihi :D Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Evo-lHK8-lY

  12. not sure if this has happened already or not, but shinee has a couple more covers, especially a beautiful one of jason mraz’s i’m yours, which shares the unique honor of having a cover done…on their cover…of a song…yea. blew my mind too. cover…of a cover…how…?
    anyways, here’s the link :)

  13. I’m REALLY surprised you guys didn’t include Younha’s cover of Viva La Vida


  14. I personally love J Min (Ting-G)’s Cover of Nobody’s Perfect, its a really beautiful cover :)


  15. Oh, found another one with SM artists, and it even has a good english in it! (And it´s great!)


  16. now that I looked through some videos on you tube another pretty good cover would be Super Junior K.R.Y – She they were good http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scmFDFuc6O8

  17. To all my nasties out there recommending GREAT Kpop covers. My After school classes “WILL LOVE EM!” Thank you guys.. <3 <3 <3 (I teach in Daegu, South Korea)

  18. Led apple and hanbyul music note covers they coverd Justin,Jason Maraz,queen ,Bruno and others

  19. recently in jan or feb of 2013, seohyun of SNSD covered a taylor swift song while she played the guitar. AWESOMMEEEEE

  20. Some covers I would suggest:
    * Lee Jonghyun (CNBLUE) “Umbrella” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N12WdhBOwGk
    - hands down my fav cover of this song EVERR. The smooth guitar, the dreamy voice, all perfectly in the mood. Makes me hypnotized whenever I listen to it. Jonghyun’s English though…. well, he’s been always admitting to struggle in it :P

    * Jonghyun (another one :P) and Onew (SHINee) “Because of You” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoF-anaaUZQ
    - this one might be a sentiment of mine… nevertheless, their distinct voices match well with the song. Great quality of covering (not of the record itself)

    * Infinite “Can’t help but wait” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMWwEdANIrw
    - YOU’LL LAUGH SO HARD. I love this cover, I think Woohyun and especially Sunggyu’s voices match awesomely to the song, but Hoya’s and Dongwoo’s rap made me suffocate :D their EngRish is so adorable xD :D:D:D [Inspirit here so no hate]

  21. I see that you haven’t forgotten ‘Milkshake’…yep, that’s a keeper :))

  22. omg jyj junsu’s timeless.!!!! original by kelley clarkson and justin timberlake. i love that song!!!

  23. MAx Changmin with “More Than Words”, Xiah Junsu with “All Rise”

  24. You missed guckkasten the saddest thing. He said he had such trouble memorizing the english. xD But he did soooo awesome~

  25. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IItWiodOz-E&list=PLbQ544A8tEmt1FExFCc3C6pc7fKCYSoKj
    The band is called The Solutions, and the song is called Tonight
    if you haven’t heard this song.. its really seriously awesome, and i have no clue if any members are native English speakers, but the accent makes me think second language? either way, i love this song and its in my playlist lol

  26. Exo covering Open Arms, they did a great job in my opinion ;)

  27. My favourite is definitely K.Will and Hyorin’s cover of Whenever You Call by Mariah Carey and Brian McKnight. They both sound so amazing!!

  28. Thanks for sharing these! They were all pure gold, and you made me fall in love with Taeyang all over again. ^_^

  29. I am a SJ bias so I can only give covers that SJ did, but yeah. It might be hard to tolerate the fangirl screams though.. haha but yeah. Both covers my SJ’s Ryeowook, he sounds amazing when he sings in English.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ja-d57Pww5w&list=PLF51578E24A62BBCD&index=10 (Insomnia)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5SXz6kE6v0&list=PLF51578E24A62BBCD&index=67 (Moves Like Jagger)

  30. Amaranda

    Pardon me if this has already been mentioned and I just missed it, but I can’t believe you didn’t mention Jang Keun Suk’s cover of Timberlake’s Sexy Back. Sure the singing isn’t great and the video quality is a bit lacking, but his PG-13 dance moves and all around hotness surely make up for all that. :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJqZuPfS7BA&list=PLUVT54DGDV-gVsN-dVeuGpE3OsDlmdJwn

  31. martina i love you you are the best!!!!

  32. There was also a great cover of Mariah Careys Whenever you call by K.Will and Hyorin! I was so amazed by their vocals…

  33. I’ve personally always enjoyed Jisook’s cover of Ne-Yo’s closer.


  34. Eunhyuk with “I’m yours” is kind of sweet! :D Amazed how he (or anyone else singing in a foreign language, for that matter) could remember all the words and everything. I know what foreigners sound when we sing Gangnam style “nanananananana 여자!!! nanananananan 여자!!!”

  35. You should check out Sungmin from Super Junior covering Falling Slowly…It’s quite awesome IMO XD

    Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2fv88IOtPc

  36. Gabriel Shallsaur Enlightened

    APink’s Eunji’s cover of “I Love You I Do”
    A clip that was release prior to APink’s debut to introduce Eunji as a member of APink.

  37. APink’s Eunji’s cover of “I Love You I Do”
    A clip that was release prior to APink’s debut to introduce Eunji as a member of APink.

  38. FT ISLAND did a rock(ish) version of Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAKEu3pZo9M

  39. Secret’s English covers have impressed me. Check out their cover of Amerie’s Take Control, Stacie Orrico’s STuck and Song Jieun’s I Have Nothing.

  40. Shinee for the ultimate win

  41. Ha!! This was so great, I was getting all up in arms all like what Hyorin or Taeyang weren’t number 1 and then I heard Teukkie and Eunhyuk and was like, okay they win. That was sooooo funny. LOL

  42. I’m a bit dissapointed you didn’t include Jonghyun’s (you know that guy from SHINee with the AMAZING voice) cover of Justin Bieber’s “As long as you love me”. Yeah, I know it’s Bieber, but Jonghyun manages to make that abolutely fantastic (and dripping with sex in the chorus (me like very much)), if you haven’t heard that cover yet, you should really check it out!!

    • I so totally agree with you Cassie! I am not a J. Bieber fan but when I heard Jonghyun sing that song I played his version for everyone I could.

  43. U-know Yunhos Michael Jackson covers were great….

  44. tts&EXO DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love Again

  45. I still think that Sunggyu and Kim BoA’s cover of Lucky was amazing. Especially considering Sunggyu’s English vocabulary includes whatever random words are in their songs and the words “I like sexy girls” and he has a lisp that is 10x more noticeable when he’s singing in English. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUuMjv1TA08
    Or Hoya’s cover of Omarion’s O. If you haven’t watched that maybe you should. :3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRIPHknGG-8

  46. Yonghwa’s “geek in the pink”! you know how the rhythm in the song goes and tho there are some mispronounciation.. but i really think he did a good job! oh well, his performance is kinda really serious if compared to eunhyuk’s and teukie’s xD

  47. Shinee’s Jonghyun and his oh soo sexy justin bieber cover “As long as you love me”. that is what you forgot

  48. Have you guys heard Kyuhyun’s cover of Isn’t She Lovely? It is quite honestly my favorite english cover by a Kpop Idol.

  49. You should have done SJ and Shinee’s cover of Michael Jackson’s Beat It and Bad

  50. Some of my favorites:

    K.Will and Hyorin – Endless Love

    Taeyang vs. Junsu Piano Battle

    Ryeowook – The Scientist

    Ryeowook – Moves Like Jagger

  51. One of my favorite English covers is Journey’s song Open Arms by Chen, Luhan, Baekhyun, and D.O. Only a few pronunciation problems and overall is really well done. EXO-M also did a really nice cover of it as well, but the one by the four is my favorite.

  52. One of my favorite covers is Journey’s song Open Arms by

  53. Lunafly’s covers are awesome (but Sam is an English speaker so I get it) BUT Teo’s cover of “Impossible” was goose bump inducing!!! You should check it out! :)

  54. You should have included Minzy’s Halo! She barely speaks English and did an AMAZING job! Not like the others were bad, in fact Lee Hi’s Rolling in the Deep was amazing, but Minzy did a great job, as well.

    Watch her cover here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8RYJc1WatA

  55. Why does Taemin ALWAYS gets tuck with the gooftastic outfits. Someone save my baby. SAVE HIM! That…and I love Hyorin…and Yiruma. Classical musicians FTW! I want to suggest J.Rabbit. They have a few great covers. Michael jackson’s “Man in the Mirror” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Cuz9OG0GlY and also the Beatles “All you need is love” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWqor3Xnqc4

  56. You guise should have seen 15&’s English covers, especially Jessie J’s Domino.
    Their voice is so soulful, and the pronunciation is pretty much flawless.

  57. I’ve always thought that Changmin nailed this performance of ‘when I first kissed you’ from their second concert


  58. Maths class sucks!!!!!!!!!!! You’re totally right Simon!! :D

  59. You should really listen to SHINee’s Jonghyun ft. Onew’s So sick by Neyo! It is soooo awesome! <3

  60. Saw Hyorin singing Halo live (with the help of Changmin, Jo Kwon and Gayoon) at the Kpop Music Festival in Sydney and she/they were amazing!!

  61. Please check out Taeyeon’s cover of Hush Hush! It’s absolutely amazing. <3


  62. While y’all may not have liked 15&’s “Somebody,” their cover of Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You” is absolutely beautiful. Have a listen! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9rpbgvOyVVA#!

  63. alex clazziquai dont look back in anger,. golden performance =)

  64. bigbangfosho

    “OH MOH MOH MOHHHHH!” most accurate thing in the history of accuracy.

  65. Hey guys, So I think you should listen to taeyon’s cover of take a bow by Rihanna. I actually like it better than the original

  66. Choi Minho sings OMG by Usher

  67. Have you seen G Dragon’s This love?

  68. Lunafly has amazing covers and inly Sam speaks fluent English. Teo and Yun pronunciation is amazing I especially liked Teo’s cover Impossible. Mostly because he doesn’t sing many lines in their songs and his voice is just amazing

  69. http://youtu.be/ISl7HxNGg2k

    Kyuhyun from Super Junior does a great job with Puff the Magic Dragon. The other members also do a great job…. well…. you’ll see.

  70. hyorins cover of best thing i never had is way better and her and soyou do dejavu together

  71. taeyeon’s cover of take a bow by rihanna

  72. Shin JiHoon and Baek AhYeon from Kpop Star did a gorgeous cover of I Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables

  73. It’s not english… But DBSK in Paris singing au champs elysee is just amazing! (The singing and cuteness, not the pronunciation :p)


  74. haha, after you guys showed the video, i think eunhyuk and leeteuk’s cover of bringing sexy back has also become one of my favorites X) it’s fun to see idols joking around and not feeling pressured to be good at an english song.

  75. CNBlue has done some amazing Jason maraz and maroon 5 covers!

  76. i`m so glad you included taeyang’s don’t judge me here ;3 also can you take out the my ish orital-ly thing in between it’s sorta annoying… anyone with me here? ><

  77. Sung Si Kyung’s cover of Stevie Wonder’s “Lately” is heaven! ^_^

  78. A few covers i like: Aoora (Double A) singing Down by jay sean https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjHBkjmcGTA

    DGNA singing/ beat boxing/ playing guitar to Down by Jay sean (apparently this song is popular) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koHfrYTaWFA (very full of engrish but its good still)

    Another DGNA one singing/ beat boxing/ playing guitar to Billionaire by Bruno mars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpvr0GJjTno

  79. My all time favorite cover is Kim Hyun Joong’s cover of Radiohead’s “Creep.”
    My alternative rocker side can’t help but be pleased.

  80. Ah I only just remembered… Junsu’s cover of All Rise by Blue (ft. Eunhyuk)! Haha epicness :D


  81. I’m almost surprised younha wasn’t mentioned. She has some great English covers. These are my favourites:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ5XDXl06Hs I don’t wanna miss a thing (Aerosmith)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAqDNGd3AiE Viva la vida (Coldplay )
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHRoTAM-Urs. Always (Bon jovi)

  82. I love Taeil’s cover of Because of You(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erjeRg26M5s) and Jino’s cover of Sexy Love by Neyo (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLxkcrMKozc)

  83. Would you mind checking this one out?

    I love Jonghyun’s version of it… it was great!!
    I loved all the songs though and I cracked up with the Eunteuk video, oww, so cute!! (this is really weird when your whole family is watching awwing at some korean guys)

  84. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQsApOjsh5M
    Do you guise know Lunafly? :O they’re actually a 3 member group however I didn’t include the leader’s solo since he’s half british so I guess he doesn’t count? ^^”
    They are amazing, trust me :)

  85. TV5Q’s rendition of You Raise Me Up is one of my favs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kKDGhP6og8

  86. awww no Hyun Joong :(

  87. and this too… i really like eunhyuk version.. he show how his singing improve more and more… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fjI1No1CKk … and this is THE BEST ONE FROM EUNHYUK… i’m totally touched when he sing this song.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6Ggt53f6Kk … THIS ONE YOU SHOULD LISTEN TOO… I’M TOTALLY LOVE IT.. SERIOUSLY…

  88. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBUBvvHhpO4

    Onew’s cover of I won’t give up (the second part is a different song)

  89. i choose my bias kyuhyun who perf “isn’t she lovely”… OMG seriously i really love that performance.. and one more is hyorin, minkyung and jieun cover for “listen”… I LOVE IT!!!

  90. Seriously check this one out. It’s Hyorin’s cover of the song “Hurt” by Christina Aguilera. I think that was for her audition for Starship Entertainment. When I saw that, it blew my mind. She messes a few words at some point but seriously, this one is just very impressive.


  91. hahahaha i loved number one.

  92. Being Ballad-dols, 2AM has one of the best voices in Kpop.

    Sharing some English covers that 2AM did.

    Fly Me To The Moon : http://youtu.be/RCCdVLwKCSA
    Marry You : http://youtu.be/LVWfRbAkYE0
    Hurricane (Seulong) : http://youtu.be/g0-BIK8Nvtc

  93. i m suprised you didnt have
    K.Will – On bended knee he rocked tht out

  94. I take it back this one is my favorite—>http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xkqy1f_101229-snsd-seohyun-circus-sbs-gayo-daejun-2010-maknae-special_music#.UXLP8FXn9NA I almost forgot about this one ^_^ I couldn’t find it on youtube anymore O_O

  95. I prefer Minzy and Ailee’s cover of Halo over Hyorin’s.
    Also I liked Big Bang and SHINee’s cover of So Sick.

    Onew and Luna’s cover of Beauty and the Beast.
    And lets not forget Taemin and his cover of Korn ;)

  96. Eunhyuks cover of Jason Mraz I’m yours is awesome

  97. One of my favorite kpop english cover was the one Shinee & Super junior did for Michael Jackson lol http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dv73vSGdzjE though the one with
    Super Junior SNSD SHINee had more singing —>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JHXJcYgn6o

  98. Hoya’s cover of Omarion’s “O”…mostly because he did pretty much sing live and that dancing man…umm…yeah it’s mostly for the dancing, but his voice is damn nice too haha…as nice as his *cough* abs *cough* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRIPHknGG-8

  99. Minzy’s covers are really good, and she is the only 2NE1 member who didn’t learn english overseas, Hosana, Do You Remember, Halo.. she’s done tons. My favorite is Adele’s Do You Remember.

  100. My brothers were beyond annoyed when i played Shinee’s just dance cover over and over lol I haven’t played it for years but i just might bring it back ^_~

  101. I loved Ryeowook’s Insomnia cover from SS2. That was ten flavours of awesome

  102. my favorite english covers are lunafly’s cover of JB’s As long as you love me
    and shinhwa’s cover of bsb’s as long as you love me
    ironic how they have the same name

  103. the lady gaga song is just dance not let’s dance isn’t it??

  104. Lipstick stick seugo!

    I am usually pretty good but today I tried to do Ring Ding Dong and realised I really don’t know any of the words. :(

    • RDD’s a hard one – but there’s always the “Ring Ding Dong, Ring Ding Dong, Ring diggi Ding diggi Ding Ding Ding!” that gets stuck in your head! ^^

  105. Super junior does not only mess around with english songs, they have a long list of songs they sing or dance live during sukira, suju is always messing around, it’s like a policy, or sth.

  106. I had a heart attack at 4:50 O_O <3

  107. Taeyang’s cover of “I don’t wanna try” is really good. please recommend this in your list.

  108. S&M you got me into looking for cool covers and I just discovered this amazing performance of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody from Gayo Daejun 2010 by Jun.K (2PM), Jonghyun (SHINee), Changmin (2AM) and Yoseob (B2ST). They sound great together!! For those who didn’t have a chance to watch them http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBvlQmDO9QI

  109. I still say this song is amazing.Charice is only 15 years old and
    singing with Kyuhyun a whole new world. It is

    • God bless you for bringing that cover to the comment wall! Charice’s talent… God really took his time to craft her into a perfect Philipino singing angel and Kyuhyun was amazing as always in the video. She kind of left a mark in America but, it’s so sad that she had all the right opportunities but didn’t manage to become a household name there. I’d like to know what her next step’s gonna be… permanent residency show in Vegas maybe? Well, I’m a fan who misses her very badly :’]

  110. If you want a HILARIOUS EPIC cover, watch this!

    SuJu, DOREMI, sound of music.


  111. SuJu Ryeowook, Move like jagger!! LOVE IT!


    • unicornsgalaxy

      Sigh. This led me to watching my favorite covers of Moves Like Jagger for a good 30 minutes. LOL. Here are my favorite covers of Moves Like Jagger from a Kpop idol (all from the same person).

      Shinhwa’s Shin Hyesung

      2011- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNqFHPljt4o
      2012 – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tikOJ4UMcEw

      • I like these as well (I just love the song XD) But Wookies voice was just EPIC for this. The crowd went wild, I can easily say it was one of the most sexy and best solo performance of SS4 Paris! And Wookie isn’t even my bias XD. He got a lot of respect from me after I saw this ^^. Important note, I think his pronunciation was really good!

        I’m happy that more Kpop idols covered this song <3

        • unicornsgalaxy

          Strangely I used to hate Wookie’s voice but now I really like it.

        • OMG same here! Well hate is a strong word, but it wasn’t my favorite, after this song it’s suddenly sexy <3

        • unicornsgalaxy

          Yeah. I amend it to “strong dislike”. LOL But it has grown on me and I really love it. Oh did you hear it in Gulliver?! He was awesome.

        • Hey!! I love Wookie’s voice!!
          And his dancing is (usually) adorable!!! (especially in Wonder Boy) *spazz*
          But I’m in denial of that Move Like Jagger performance from him >__< Why was it not the epitome of cute awkwardness?!?! *pouting*

    • yanagiba yusuke22

      wookie solo perf since ss2 is the most outstanding perfomance out of all sj members actually… even he’s not my bias but his perf make elfs become wild…. :)

  112. omg haha i was laughing my pants off at Leeteuk and Eunhyuk :P
    my personal favourite is Taeyeon’s cover of Hush Hush,
    Her English pronunciation is so good for a non native speaker, and that’s the first time I heard her super power vocals properly!

  113. WARNING! This list here will melt your heart:3

  114. This is my fav~ Lee jeongmin (from Boyfriend) singing “Hello” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHodg-D1vPE

  115. Oh I remembered of a cover I really like, the one of 국카스텐[Guckkasten] & 검정치마[The Black Skirts] singing their version of “The Drugs Won’t Work” (The Verve)

  116. ” special Kpop Covers,” “since we were so especially inspired by 4Minute’s reinterpretation of Milkshake. ” *ehem* don’t think I can’t see you Simon :P …

    nice work! ^^

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥

  117. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2AvqDyKu38
    Is this just too old for people to remember/ know?

    I loved anyband, junsu and BoA were just amazing in this cover together.<3

  118. Yes! Sexy back by eunteuk is and will always be the best, funniest cover to any song! All of Eunteuk’s radio songs are like that, but Sexy back is seriously the funniest. Glad you two also thought so :)
    Although I recently heard Jonghyun from Shinee cover Justin Bieber’s “As Long as You Love Me” and it was amazing. I liked it better than the original.

  119. BEG cover of rihanna’s umbrella is really good

  120. I totally forgot about this one when you asked for videos. Kyuhyun sings Puff the Magic Dragon, while the other SuJu members act crazy. It’s hilarious. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ISl7HxNGg2k

  121. Minzy did a pretty great cover of Halo also as a Christmas gifts to Blackjacks one year. The pronunciation was pretty sloppy, but her singing was great and you could really see she’d improved.

  122. UHHHHHH!!!! i didn’t know that shinee sang that!!! i will only listen to them sing it now :)

  123. It’s a really old song covered by Xiah Junsu (former DBSG, current JYJ) and Eunhyuk during one of DBSG’s concerts. I always liked it and I fell in love with the original after I saw his cover.
    All Rise – Xiah Junsu and Eunhyuk

  124. PunkyPrincess92

    OH YEAH~~~~ how can i even forget??
    Seungri imitating Nelly!!!!!!
    “he don’t love you like i schedule”!!!!!!!!!!!

  125. My favorite cover song is “Lucky” by IU and Yonghwa:

  126. i know it’s not a cover, but perhaps including Big Bang’s full-english songs from a few years back would’ve been wise? I mean, it’s not a cover but they wrote the song themselves and performed fully in english.

    I think that would’ve still fit the purpose of this video (showing korean artists singing in english) despite it not being a cover

    • Bakuwoman

      Nope the purpose was English songs covered by idols.

      • i think you should reread what i wrote. “I think that would’ve still fit the purpose of this video (showing
        korean artists singing in english) DESPITE IT NOT BEING A COVER”.

        Obviously i know what the official purpose is (english songs covered by idols), but seeing as the main point is actually about korean idols singing in english, they could’ve used the songs i talked about

        • Bakuwoman

          No I read it correctly… the purpose of the video was “English Songs Covered by K-Pop Idols” which means that is the main point of the video. Recognizing BB’s songs don’t fit the purpose, but still saying they would have been a wise choice was just odd. Their main goal was not to hear idols produce songs in English, but to show both good and bad covers of English songs. I know my first response was a bit blunt before. Sorry if you felt attacked or offended.

  127. PunkyPrincess92

    yeah~ SHINee’s Just Dance cover is awesome!!! Key’s echo rap was very odd though! and Tae’s outfit was like someone got him to wear a pimped out garbage bag!!!
    ahahahahahahha EunTeuk’s song!! ahahahahha ah~ i love it!!!

    does SHINee singing ‘tie a yellow ribbon’ at concert count?
    (ahah i absolutely love their concert video for this though!!)

    and Onew singing in english is just AMAZING!!!!!! gah!!! his voice just kills me!!!
    covering Jason Mraz ‘i won’t give up’
    disney song ‘a whole new world’
    Jason mraz ‘lucky’

    Jonghyun covering JB ‘as long as you love me’ was good too!!
    “4Minute’s “Milkshake” – Never forget.”
    ahahahaha i don’t think i’ll ever forget that!!!

  128. SHINee’s cover of Just Dance is better than the original! They have totally AWESOME voices! But… WTH is Tae-MAN wearing?!

  129. You missed Teo’s cover of Impossible by James Arthur (in case you dont know Teo is from Lunafly) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzeoCZEED8s He is SO amazing and this is my favorite cover.

  130. Zhou Mi and his covers of I will always love you and Because of you! He’s got a really good voice and I love his singing but his english is…. a little hard to understand sometimes?… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmoIoQCJL7s (I will always love you) , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uFv2I8rQUhc (Because of you)

  131. The first English cover song i ever heard ….. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGpbnE2LMqU … Kyuhyun your voice …. just melts my soul.

  132. I have two favourite covers which I listen to a lot, both of them are by Onew. The first cover is “How Deep Is Your Love” by the Bee Gees http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Acoln1Ep-y0. Onew’s voice is perfect for the song ;A; . The second cover is “Forever More (I’ll Be The One)” by Ingram James. There are three versions of this cover;

    1) a live fancam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOghv1smyPU
    2) SSTP radio performance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDzzjZwgd78
    3) more HQ one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iFtzQY30YmU .

    I personally like the fancam version better as he’s playing piano as well ^^

    • I really really really really really loved Gyu + Myungsoo’s cover of lucky. :) Was really impressed. Gyu (and Hoya) need to work on their Engrish though hahaha.

  133. Eunhuyk’s bad english is so adorable :)…. I liked SHINee and F(x)’s cover of my first kiss :)

  134. 2NE1 when they sung Broken Hearted Girl…. that was just amazing I thought.


  135. This is a really old cover by SHINee singing Neyo’s Because of You. Enjoy! :)

  136. One song you guys should definitely check out is DBSK’s Raise Me Up. I know Yoochun knew some English once upon a time, but we all know how badly Jaejoong fails at it. It’s really sweet and they pull it off.

  137. Ok, I’ve got to say, was it specifically mentioned in the request for our “favorite Kpop covers of English songs” that one of the qualifications was that the members be non-English speakers? I don’t believe so. I was trying to hold in the butt hurt, but I’ve had all I can stands and I can’t stands no more. We weren’t given all of the necessary information to make a qualified judgment call on which songs to submit. If it was something that we were just supposed to pick up on, but was not explicitly stated, it wasn’t “gotten” by some of us. Sigh, sorry for that everyone, but I had to get it out. I just couldn’t take all the snark that was being thrown about and not being properly responded to. I love EYK and I love the Disqus community on the site and enjoy the vast array of opinions and personalities that we share here. I just want to keep it real :)

  138. Actually, did you hear this? And I know Lee Hi already was on the list, but I think I like this better and just wanted to share it with you guys… It was a special stage on KPOPSTAR the second season and Lee Hi was just accopmanying 2000 won so she doesn´t sing that much but I still think it´s awesome :P


  139. Taeyeon hush hush or take a bow or taeyeon and tiffany because of you

  140. Yonghwa’s (CN Blue) live cover of “Payphone” (by Maroon 5) is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!!! His English pronunciation is really good with only a couple of mistakes (exist = exi…; the = de; where = wherle), and his voice is so amazing and the song is awesome… And for some reason I was shocked that it’s actually the censored version… Here’s a link!

  141. EHHHH.

    Idk what the deal was, but I wasn’t feeling you guys in this video.

    I know that all your videos are scripted, but it felt like you guys were WAY too scripted and obvious about it. The goofing around felt super forced.
    Were you guys tired that day or was it because you were super conscious about being on someone else’s channel? :/

  142. “we didn’t pick and Jay Park of LED Apple covers.”
    great English usage!! lol

  143. Where is Areum’s amazing cover (for realzy) of Jessie J’s Price Tag

  144. Thanks for including Taeyang in there, that cover was so awesome, and yes, he is ridiculously gifted and talented.

  145. I think f(x)’s Luna & TRAX’s cover of Evanescence’s “Bring Me To Life” deserves a listen. (But I definitely agree that Eunteuk’s cover of “Sexy Back” is immortal. XD)


    • I’m a huge fan of Amy Lee’s voice and her and Evanescence itself so I’m pretty harsh when it comes to covers of their songs since Amy’s voice is perfect but I was pleasantly suprised after watching Luna’s version of BMTL. I think it’s one of not many EV’s covers that I enjoyed listening to.

      • Same, definite fan of Evanescence and Amy Lee’s work. :) Considering this cover was done in 2010, I’m positive Luna could do a much better, more polished job were she to recreate it now; despite her tiny hint of an accent, however, her vocals are nearly spot on to Amy Lee’s, and her addition of the high note towards the end was really chilling. Luna’s a powerhouse vocalist, she needs more exposure in SM, hands down.

  146. Lee Hi’s cover of “Bust Your Windows” was better than the “Rolling in the Deep” one

  147. mihuru

    I think Kyuhyun’s cover of Isn’t She Lovely is my all time favorite! His pronunciation isn’t spot on but his voice is amazing and he plays the piano and the harmonica so well! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1i-IYU84Dlc

    I also just recently found Lunafly’s cover of Justin Bieber’s As Long As You Love Me and fell in love with it! I’m not sure how fluent Yun is in English but he does an amazing job singing the song! Sam’s rap is great as well~

  148. how about Jaejoong and changmin doing it’s raining men? that one rocks!

  149. FT Island did a live rock cover of Lady Gaga’s Poker Face…..it was really good instrumentally and vocally but the pronunciation was kind of hilarious….it sounded like Hongki was saying Poke her face or Poke her feet…lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAKEu3pZo9M

  150. you should hear jonghuns cover of justin bieber, as long as you love me and shinees cover of jason maraz im yours <3

  151. Looks like Simon’s shirt says “FAT”

  152. I’m sorry, but that part when Martina went “SHAZAMMMMM” was soooo funny. lol ;DDDD<3

  153. Jung Young Hwa of CNBlue singing “Geek in the Pink” by Jason Mraz.

  154. It’s been so long since I saw that SHINee “Just Dance” video! I remember when I first found it, I saw a comment saying, “I love how Key says the line ‘Where are my KEYS, I lost my phone.’” 8D

  155. Dang it, you guys didn’t use my Sungyeol (feat. Hoya) Sexy Back cover suggestion x3.
    Just kidding. I’m actually pretty satisfied with your list, I think it turned out good ^^.

  156. non-english speaking idols cover … hmm it’s between taeyeon or Jieun(Secret)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRUOg-0uFOc vs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_6PjwTzcD6U

  157. I don’t know if someone’s mentioned it before but you totally missed on CHANGMIN! My first reaction when I played this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnbtqq0qeVs&feature=share was “when… did… Changmin… start playing guitar? O_____O”

    I’ve never seen ANY video of him playing a guitar so I think he prepared it especially for the show, which makes this so much more awesome! For me playing guitar and singing at the same time is still very hard (I can only focus on 1 thing at a time… ___^___) and he just plays and sings it with a smile that tells “ooooh, I’m so OSM!” XD and he plays GOOD.

  158. i was really looking forward to see Taeyeon’s Take a bow xD or Seohyun’s Jack/sixteen going on seventeen or something between those lines xD

  159. My favorite cover is by MIMA, from a group (I don’t believe has really released anything) called New F.O style, singing Bruno Mars’ It Will Rain. She sang it in New York as well. MUST WATCH. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-pX9En2kfE and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AESo0D2F3jc .

  160. My favourite is Jonghyun singing as long as you love me! You need to check it out~

  161. YES!!! Your number 1 is my favorite video of all time!! Haha
    Infinite’s Sunggyu has a lot of great English covers! Like NSYNC’s “Gone”.
    Super Junior has a bunch of great ones too! I love Eunhyuk’s cover of “Cracks of my Broken Heart”. It really showed how great his singing is, especially for being one of the lead rappers of the group. ^^

  162. My favorite cover is without a doubt, “Way Back into Love,” by Kyuhyun, Donghae, Taeyoeon, and Jessica. Even though Jessica is a native English speaker, she was outshined, in my opinion, by Taeyeon and Kyuhyun. I was pleasantly surprised by their level of pronunciation. It makes for a really beautiful cover. As do the harmonies! They all sound really good together. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjCCeanvIfw

  163. I seriously choked on my green apple millk bubble tea when i heard Eunteuk’s version of Sexy Back XD i can’t believe i haven’t seen this before…

  164. 2NE1 with Rihanna’s Umbrella

  165. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B5vpOyIU0ps – TOP singing No diggity ALL TIME FAV <3333333333333333

  166. 9irls' 9eneration's Wish

    Since your number one is Justin Timberlake’s song, here’s some pants ripping and horizontal pole dancing from Yoona’s version of “4 minutes”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5k47nazbJA :D ENJOY!

    Now maybe for the next tour she can sing “I LOST MY PANTS~ RIPITTO FLIPITTO SIPPI SLOW MOTION~~” HAHA

  167. I don’t know if this counts, because he speaks English fluently, but Led Apple’s Hanbyul covered ‘When I was your man’ by Bruno Mars and it’s just amazing~


  168. Let’s switch it up, here is Radio for the People English Cover of 2NE1′s I Love You. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFt-IvhY2mA&list=RD02_HPWGmSUN_M

  169. I’m a big fan of Taeyeon’s Take a Bow cover by Rihanna. It’s a fairly recent one, but it was live but I thought she actually sang it much better than Rihanna did. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U7H6V0InSL4

  170. I’m actually really surprised that being Junsu biased you didn’t put him on the list. :O haha the best covers he has done in my opinion are ”the greatest love of all” by whitney houston, or the piano battle with Taeyang :D

  171. “Side note: we didn’t pick and Jay Park of LED Apple covers. That’d be cheating! They’re fluent in English,”

    I’m going to take the first sentence as you mistyping – you must type way too fast. LED Apple has TWO vocals, one fluent in english and one who doesn’t know english and is still learning the language. It is unfair to Kyumin, he tries very hard to pronounce english and then sing it for the covers. People should recognize his efforts and not let Hanbyul overshadow him. So it would not be unfair to pick LEDApple for the english covers that both Hanbyul AND KYUMIN sings.

    • You’re right about that. Kyumin’s trying so hard to fix his pronunciation. Doesn’t help when Hanbyul’s teasing him almost all the time about his English on his “Blah Blah’s.” Although I do admit that it’s funny to see them tease each other. <..>

  172. LOLOL! While Eunhyuk is singing, Leeteuk just help with the “YEAH~”

  173. yanagiba yusuke22

    i think u should mention this… http://youtu.be/c6hNd0_mnDk

  174. You guys need to check out Kim Hyung Jun’s Music High… he did sexy back as well http://youtu.be/d5RANEjV-98 karaoke style~

  175. thisisjustforfunval

    One of my all time favorite English covers by a Korean idol is Shin Soohyun of U-Kiss singing Because of You by Neo. (Ya’ll have meet him and know he’s not fluent in English, even though I think he understands more then he leads on lol) There are live stage versions also but it is so hard to hear because of the screaming fan girls. The song start about the 1:30 mark. He’s singing in the beginning also but I love when sings this song most.


  176. You forgot Yoona, Gain, and Uee singing “Like a Virgin. Which was the best forever.


  177. Isabel Ruby

    let me just go the gym now for my singing lessons….. i hold weights to open up my diaphragm…..

  178. TaetiSeo’s Cater 2 u is totally my fav eng song covered by kpop idols! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChiFnvudALE

  179. Sorry, but for Taeyang i love more his version of dont wanna try… when he battled Junsu… This song is one of my fav covers by him http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7W7CsZcsTAo

  180. as a TripleS, I would also recommend “My Baby You” covered by Heo Young Saeng and “Reason for breathing” by Kim Hyung Jun ^^



  181. JYJ’S I have nothing is amazing. They blowed my mind peripipipiuuuu with their range. Specially Junsu and Jaejoong. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-YZAreowBI

    • yes, i agree with with you. even though they stumbled through some of the words, the feelings that they conveyed through their rendition of one of Whitney Houston’s classics is just freaking aaammmaaazzziiinnnggg!!!

  182. my favorite cover is Taecyeon singing Craig David’s “You Don’t Miss Your Water (Till the Well Runs Dry)” because his English is close to perfect (and his voice sounds wonderful), though i have to admit i’m not sure how good at English generally Taecyeon is. when i first heard the mp3, i thought he was singing in a noraebang somewhere, but now i guess it was on a radio show :)

  183. I remember watching piano battle btwn junsu and taeyang. Junsu did 98 degrees my everything. It’s one of my fav covers

  184. I’m favorite that you didn’t list is SHINee’s (sans Minho :( ) cover of I’m Yours, I’ll Be Missing You, and Hey Juliet.


  185. lunafly as long as you love (just in beiber) myyyyyy faveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeorite cover ever you cant tell its a jb song you would think its one of there’s
    also led apple have really good covers from their 50 thing they do

    • But lunafly has fluent english speakers. all of them, actually. thus, disqualified in S&M’s criteria. :(

      • No, only Sam is fluent. Teo and Yun are exceptionally good at speaking it though :)

        I really liked Teo’s cover of Impossible and Yun’s cover of As Long As You Love Me, but Sam had parts there too so I guess they aren’t counted :(

  186. List is irrelevant. 4Minute should be number 1.

    Although Taeyang’s cover is like… pure perfection. Simple, classic and crisp.

  187. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahn-FJHmxhg&feature=youtube_gdata_player

    By far my favorite english cover, i have as one of my ringtones too :)
    aand taeyang even makes a few mistakes lol but he did great overall. Junsu too!

  188. You should definitely watch “Halo” covered by SPICA, the harmony is just magnificent, and the pronounciation is really ok (as far as I can tell since I’m not a native English speaker). Even my husband is in love with this song (and he can’t stand the original… sorry Beyonce!)
    Sadly, the HQ video has been removed from YT, so we have… this ^^

  189. so glad that you went with non english speaking Koreans..cause when I was scrolling through the list people were posting on FB I also thought the same thing…that’s cheating of course LEDapple or Ailee is going to sing good in english.

    • LEDApple has two vocals: Hanbyul fluent in english and Kyumin fluent in korean and still learning english. So you can’t definitively say its cheating to choose LEDapple. In fact, Hanbyul is the only one in the band that is fluent in english but not the only one that sings in english.

  190. Shinee’s “Hey Juliet” should of been in there!

  191. XLovelyFantasy

    SPICA’s English covers!!! Such awesome harmonizing! They did Brandy’s “Right Here”, Destiny Child’s “Stand Up for Love”, and also “When You Believe”! Kim Boa also did Rihanna’s “Take a Bow”, BoHyung did Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” and Karina Pasian’s “Slow Motion”!

    SPICA’s awesome singing!!

  192. You guys have to check out Onew’s cover of How Deep Is Your Love. It’s really good!

  193. i know this is cheating since it includes tiffany who is fluent in english but TaeTiSeo cover of “cater 2 u” if my favorite. If i can’t pick that ill go with taeyeons “hush hush hush”

    also the “maknae” performance of Brittany spears circus is fun to watch. It includes taemin suli chansung mir lizzy and seohyun.

  194. You missed Ailee’s cover of “If I ain’t got you”. I was so freakin’ ah-maz-ing O.O http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG7niC8FmWM

  195. The “Sexy Back” made me think of Ji Hyun Woo’s (vocalist/guitarist for “The Nuts”) cover of “Sexy Back” on Yoo Hee Yeol’s Sketchbook was soooooo sexy!!! Perhaps it was also because I found the MV at the height of his fame playing Kim Boong Do in Queen InHyun’s Man… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ur9Yr3RROfM

    PSY’s covers of Lady GaGa and Beyonce dances are also pretty fabulous! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CU8LJK0-fCo

  196. You should definitely listen to Shinee’s Jonghyun’s cover of Justin Bieber’s song As long as you love me. It was done really recently and is great. Those few mispronunciations but man he does a pretty great job!

  197. FT Island’s cover of Lady GaGa’s Poker Face
    And Teo from Lunafly’s cover of James Arthur’s version of Shontelle’s Impossible

  198. FTIsland’s cover of Poker Face by Lady Gaga http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAKEu3pZo9M showcases Hongki’s vocal skills despite his “engrish”. Very well done by the rest of the band as well, sounded like the instruments were live.

  199. Sandeul’s cover of “Fly Me to the Moon” by Frank Sinatra is amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hCbyA74TeZs the pronunciation isn’t too great but his voice…

    • YES YES YES I am sooo agree with you.
      At first, I kinda underestimate Sandeul’s english pronunciation (so sorry Deulliee). I mean, he’s known as a countryside-dols, right? I feel like his heavy accent will ‘ruin’ his english.
      But boooy, I am so wrong! His jazzy performance at Immortal Song really take my breath away. His english pronunciation is beyoooond expectation! Well, not that perfect tho, but I never see this coming from him.
      If you haven’t see it, you guise should check this video out NAAOOOO xDDD

  200. how did i not know about the shinee one wow!

  201. Daesung did an amazing cover of Back At One but I only found the audio (Well it is all you really need) on YouTube… Check it out!!!

  202. This video is awesome! I watched Lee Hi’s cover of “Rolling in the Deep” and had to share it with my mom. She agreed with me that she was an awesome singer (: And so much respect to those who try singing in another language when it’s not something their strong at as apposed to native speakers. And Taeyang……he’s so good at singing! Seriously his voice reminds me of Usher but he has his own style too, I want to hear more from him (:

  203. I just want to know if simon and martina likes the UKISS cover of as long as you love me?

  204. T.O.P’s cover of No Diggity… It makes me wonder why YG hasn’t convinced T.O.P to release an album as a singer since he is actually really good. One more reason to make him close to perfection….. DAMN YOU TOP!!!

    • Yah! We were amazed at how good he is at singing! We only thought of him as a rapper…

      • u should check out 2NE1 covering Beyonce’s Broken Hearted Girl! they were 4MAZING~~~

      • For once stop being bias and please listen to SNSD TTS ft EXO ” DJ Got Us Falling In Love Again”
        Those EXO boys cannot speak any english but i’m so impressed with their singing and pronunciation.. ^^
        it will worth you time. I promise.Thanks!

        • Aukse Barakauskaite

          I think they only listed live performances. And that perf was NOT live.

        • are you kidding me?? -___-” they sang that song for like 3 to 4 times already and you said all the performance are not live? did you bother watching the videos in the first place?? seriously judging you now! :/ sigh

          like I said.. STOP being bias cos it’s showing damn much!

        • Hi there,

          Can you please adjust the aggressiveness in the tone you are writing. I see you are trying to make a suggestion but doing so in such a combative way is not the way to get someone to see your point of view. Also one of our commenting guidelines is that you must be respectful.

          If you continue to respond in a belligerent way I will have no other choice than to delete your comments or ban you which I would not want to do since you seem to be just trying to make a suggestion. But I will not condone you continuing to respond to people in such an aggressive manner.


        • I think your comment would have been much more effective if you didn’t start it with : For once stop being bias. Serioulsy just remove those words and your comment would have been super polite and informative. Plus, did you stop and think that maybe they just didn’t know about that cover? It happens.

          Also Tiffany is fluent in English, being a Korean-American and they said they won’t mention any groups with foreign members.

        • owh I’m sorry.. but Taeyang English is fluent enough, but why did he’s included then? btw, Only Tiffany is fluent while Seohyun is decently good.. Taeyeon and those EXO boys can communicate like little to zero English.. and those peoples are the one who gotten most parts, not Tiffany~ ^^

        • There is a difference being fluent enough and having english as your first language (and living in a country where you have to speak the language to live) Taeyang never lived in a country where he had to speak english to get by. He learned it as a second language.

          I’ve watched the cover you’re talking about (well the SMTown in seoul performance) and Exo’s part is mostly in korean. Yes they are some part in english but all their rap is in korean. Maybe in some other performance they rap in english, i dunno. Though I must say, I’m pleasantly surprised with Taeyoon’s pronunciation (I’ve also watched her cover of Hush Hush and yeah that girl can sing in English)

        • I am not a VIP so I am not 100% . I thought Taeyoon grew up in a English speaking country for awhile and his the best English speaker of the group so he becomes the group’s voice when interviewing with English reporters. I guess I was wrong..

        • Hahah, you guys are so mixing up the two names, Taeyang is the male member of Bigbang while Taeyeon is female and in SNSD.

          Taeyang is Korean born and bred, and learned English as a second language ( partially from Danny from 1tym… who apparently taught GD and Taeyang really horrible English). He is relatively fluent and he is usually used as BigBang’s PR person when they have to speak English in an interview setting… sometimes even in Korean settings too, GD makes him do it as well. Both TOP and GD also understand and speak English as well.

          However I must add that this list was for non- native English speakers, of which Taeyang is one. Also he did not go to an international school, like CL from 2ne1 or AJ from UKISS, where they pretty much all learn and speak English from a young age.


        • isn’t this a FAVORITES video?? of course they will pick THEIR favorite ones only. that TTS EXO cover maybe YOUR favorite but it isn’t theirs. so lets just accept it. plus maybe they did consider the cover you mentioned BUT they can only put 7, so maybe it just didn’t make the top 7. picking favorites basically means you have to be biased of one video over the other. just like GD is my favorite BB member therefore he is my bias. i don’t want to call you unintelligent or dumb but……. yeah. so just calm down. sheez.

      • Simon and Martina ^^ ~~ what do you think about Eunji cover? I know she has an accent but I think she sang really well. I remember I was shocked at first lol


      • Haha have you seen him singing in big bangs version of i am the best? Not bad

      • Wow you guys replied to me and I find out 8 months later…. still I feel special… like a superstar!!! ahahahahah

    • I gotta agree with that one. TOP has an amazing voice and it’s a shame he did not have a freaking solo album yet since all other members already had. Papa YG please make it finally happen as well as Daesung’s Korean solo. Thank God for having at least GD&TOP album but again TOP’s not singing there either :( I love this cover of No Diggity and I even have it on my ipod LOL. TOP is my fav kpop artist ever and since he got of the stage and rapped in front of me at the concert in London I gotta love him even more :D S&M, looking at your 7 fav covers reminds me of other ones. When I watched “Sexy back” I thought of Seungri’s version since he loves JT and when it comes to “Halo” I think that was the very first cover of Ailee I heard and I admire her singing ever since. There’s so many good covers that except from TOP’s one it’s hard to choose my fav :P

    • T.O.P has said in an interview that he isn’t comfortable singing as he is at rapping. “Rapper’s pride” I think he called it.
      But I agree, he needs a solo album.

      • Yes, it is what he calls “rapper’s pride”. I also wish he releases a solo album in which he actually sings just like in No Diggity however,I think no matter how much we plead to YG sajangnim to make T.O.P. sing, he just won’t. It’s T.O.P.’s choice and we know how it works in YG E, YG Stans. They push their artists to their limits, to extract every bit of talent the person/trainee has but in the end, the artist will still get to choose what s/he would like to do with their talents. See/listen also “She Can’t Get Enough” from their 1st full-length album. T.O.P. did sing the first two lines. When I mean sing, he really sang the part not the sing-rapping, wherein T.O.P. is either rapping or singing just like in Blue and Bad Boy. It sounded good to me buuuttt..he never did it again.

    • bigbangfosho

      I have it on my iPod, that’s how much I love it.

    • OMG. TOP and me gotta seriously make babies, perfection must be spread out in the world. I am gonna have serious Noona heartbreak blues when that one settles down.
