The K-Pop music industry has earned international recognition for mastering the art of creating music videos (MV). One cannot deny the power of a beautifully shot music video to promote and eventually sell songs. Even if we deny it, there were many times we bought an album (or a track) because we loved the MV so much. The MV is, without doubt, a precipitating factor in ensuring the success of a song.
K-Pop music videos range from high-energy dance tracks to “cuteness overload.” However, once in a while, a dramatic music video is released that serves to squeeze our eyes out of our precious tears.
Here are some of the most tear-jerking K-Pop videos released recently. I also included some from the old days. Get your tissue box ready and enjoy these tear-jerking MVs!
“I Told You I Wanna Die” by Huh Gak (featuring B2ST’s Jun Hyung)
This drama-like MV presents the continuation of a romantic storyline from Huh Gak’s previous single “Hello.” The MV stars B2ST’s Jun Hyung, actor Lee Hyun Jin and actress Kang Sora in a tragic love story involving a man, a woman and a loyal friend. I don’t want to spoil the ending so just experience it for yourself. The MV beautifully highlights the haunting vocals of “Superstar K” (Korea’s American Idol) winner Huh Gak.
“In Heaven” by JYJ
JYJ’s latest release “In Heaven” tells the fateful love story of a doomed couple who got their second chance. In the MV, JYJ member Junsu acts along with labelmate Song Ji Hyo. Like a drama, the story is presented with foreshadows and flashbacks which keeps the viewer hooked until the end. Take note of JYJ’s Jaejoong’s emotional interpretation of the song specially towards the bridge. You cannot help but be moved by the song and the MV.

According to Hanteo, JYJ sold ~158,000 albums this year.
JYJ released 2 albums this year: Music Essay and In Heaven. There were no repackages nor multiple versions of the same album (such as versions A, B, C, limited edition, special edition, etc.) Majority of Music Essay sales could not be counted on Hanteo because they were categorized as “books” and not as albums. While it topped the bookstore sales and rankings charts, Music Essay wasn’t featured as prominently on Hanteo due to its categorization. As such, ~158,000 does not accurately portray the success JYJ had this year and had Music Essay counted as albums, JYJ would rank much higher in Singer Awards chart.
