While K-Pop songs never fail to tug at our heartstrings, these covers of English songs by our favorite K-Pop artists are a special treat.
While we all enjoy listening to idols’ melodic voices, many non-Korean speakers often find themselves turning to fan translated YouTube lyric videos to comprehend the meaning of K-Pop songs. That’s why it’s so special to K-Pop’s English-speaking fans when their favorite idols do covers of familiar English favorites.
Here is a small selection of some of the best covers of English songs by K-Pop artists:
1. BTS’s Jungkook
Jungkook is notorious for spoiling fans with covers. Often applauded for his accurate pronunciation and honey voice, his English covers have captured the hearts of many. This cover of Justin Bieber‘s “Nothing Like Us” is one you won’t want to miss.
Jungkook appears to be a fan of Tori Kelly and his cover of her song, “Paper Hearts”, was incredibly popular with over 7 000 000 views on YouTube alone! In fact, Jungkook has been caught humming refrains from other Tori Kelly songs like “Dear No One”.
Jungkook’s cover of Adam Levine‘s “Lost Stars” really is a treat for the ears as he perfectly hits all the high notes with his smooth voice.
Jungkook and Rap Monster‘s release of this Troy Sivan cover had sparked a great deal of controversy when it was first released as the song’s lyrics deal with homosexual love.
2. VIXX’s Hyuk
If you didn’t know this already, K-Pop artists love covering Justin Bieber and Hyuk‘s cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself” is definitely one of the best out there.

Who could forget Chanyeol‘s special treat? John Legend‘s “All of Me” is a classic.
6. VIXX’s Ken
Ken infused Adele‘s “Rolling in the Deep” with his own creative flair!

Adele is also another favorite among K-Pop idols and V‘s cover of “Someone Like You” pays her song a beautiful crooning tribute.
