Must-listen K-pop songs on Valentine's Day:
1. If you're single, waiting for *the one*, and wishing they'll come sooner, listen to "Across The Universe" by Baek Yerin.

2. If you’re experiencing one-sided love and you’re thinking whether to confess or not, listen to "Love You (Bye)" by Cheeze.
Are you in love with someone but you don't know if they feel the same way? Have you been wanting to express your feelings, but you're scared to lose the comfortable friendship you currently have together?

3. If you have been in a happy relationship for a long time and you see forever with this person, listen to "Me After You" by Paul Kim.

"Me After You" by Paul Kim is a classic love song by now with its widespread popularity when it was released three years ago until now. It’s a song used a lot for proposals and weddings because it expresses the heartfelt feelings of love, gratitude, and happiness towards your forever person as you promise to treat them well for the rest of your lives.
The lyrics that will hit right in the feels: I was surprised with the fact that we got used to each other. I love you. Just like now when it’s peaceful. "I want to be with you forever." I thought that as I was looking at you.

4. If you're confused about your relationship status because it's complicated, listen to "Yes No Maybe" by Suzy.
Are you unsure whether you’re single or in a relationship because it’s somewhere in between? Do you want to let go of someone but somehow you can’t help but keep coming back?
"Yes No Maybe" by Suzy is the anthem of the confused and the marupok. The song reveals the jumbled feelings of trying to stay away from someone, but you can’t help but go back. The lyrics include a message convincing yourself to stop but still being torn once you hear their voice.
The lyrics that will hit right in the feels: I can't keep doing this. The end is so obvious. I can’t keep walking on this path. This path I shouldn’t be on, I see myself going back on it. I don’t understand myself.

5. If you’re heartbroken and missing someone now more than ever, listen to "Missing You" by BTOB.
Can’t join the love month celebration because of a breakup? Still in the middle of grieving over a lost relationship? Are you missing someone so much it feels like you won’t be able to move on?
"Missing You" by BTOB fully expresses the feeling of longing and pain for someone you cannot be with anymore. The lyrics show that stage of trying to move on and live your life but even though time passes, life feels incomplete without the person.
The lyrics that will hit right in the feels: Even if a whole day passes by missing you, even if a year passes by trying to forget you, I just live like this. I'm missing you, missing you.
Hopefully, by watching the MV, you’ll at least get distracted by BTOB's visuals and talent (*hugs*). Check it out here:
