K-Pop idols also commit silly antics on their SNS accounts to have fun with their fans. I bet some of your favorite idols have also done the same, right? Makes you want to go back and see what foolish sides they have shown during that day. As a special gift for the special occasion, here is a special playlist which is a perfect fit for April Fools, or just the central theme of “fool” in general.
Winner – Fool
Fool is a song by Winner which is included in their first single album “Fate Number For”. The single is also the group’s first release since the departure of Nam Taehyun. The song is a slow ballad track that has lyrics conveying the feelings of someone who considers himself a fool for hurting his significant other.
Twice – Like A Fool
Like A Fool is the final track for Twice’s debut album “The Story Begins”. The song is a ballad song infused with pop elements and a prominent sound of the harmonica, which makes the song more unique and special. It also showcases the vocal talent of the members, especially the members who are in charge of the chorus — namely, Jihyo, Nayeon, Jeongyeon, and Sana.
Gugudan – Silly
Completely contrasting with the album cover’s girl crush image, the next song has a very feminine and bright approach to silliness. Silly is a b-side of Gugudan’s latest single album “Act 04: Cait Sith”. The song’s chorus is extremely catchy and upbeat, perfectly fitting with Gugudan’s colorful image! The lyrics are calling out someone as a fool for being so obvious with his feelings towards someone.
Seventeen – Swimming Fool
We were taught as kids one of the golden rules “don’t judge the book by its cover”. As silly as the song’s title sounds, the song is good and is perfect for having a good time! Swimming Fool is part of Seventeen’s fourth mini album “Al1” and was sung by the group’s performance team. The EDM driven song really catches the ears with an addictive tune and an addictive synth.
Ken (VIXX) – Fool
I initially decided to leave out the OST’s, but this “Fool” is too good to leave out! For the seventh part of Legend of the Blue Sea’s OST, VIXX’s main vocal Ken sang a very light and vivid song called “Fool”. The song is a love song and is an ode to the singer’s love interest infused with a sunshine-y bright and upbeat instrumental!
Red Velvet – Dumb Dumb
It is one of Red Velvet’s special charms to captivate their listeners easily with such a funky and addictive sound. Dumb Dumb from the group’s album “The Red” is definitely not an exception to this charm. With their signature sound and repetitive but catchy lyrics, Red Velvet grew to be one of the K-Pop fans’ go-to groups for fun songs to jam to.
