Top 3 Kpop Music Videos to Check Out

From BLACKPINK to BTS, it can be difficult for freshly debuted kpop groups to grow in popularity in their earlier stages. While it is common for the K-pop industry to pump out as many groups as possible, it can be difficult for listeners to keep up with bombardment of various groups. However, if you’re wondering which new K-pop songs to add to your playlist, here are the best ones for 2023.


PURPLE KISS is a six member girl group under RBW Entertainment consisting of Na Goeun, Dosie, Ireh, Yuki, Chaein, and Swan. On March 15, 2021, the kpop group debuted with their mini album Into Violet. While the group has been on hiatus, they recently released their new single Sweet Juice. The song brings in a strong production set-up as well as a sultry yet haunting tone that sets itself apart from the traditional upbeat, bubbly aesthetic most kpop groups present.
