4 K-pop Music Apps You Need in Your Life Now

You deserve some glitz and glamour in your life.

Sometimes, you just need to sing your heart out.

And let’s face facts: A little choreography never hurt anyone.

So it’s no wonder you love your K-pop.

And what makes you love it even more is that you can work on your Korean skills with your favorite artists.

There are valuable language lessons in those catchy lyrics, and you can learn a lot from watching the music videos or just listening to the songs.

But while K-pop has these obvious benefits, it also has one main drawback: How can you ever possibly get your fill?

Well, with the four K-pop music apps below, you’ll have all the music you need to make you dance for joy.


Why Use a K-pop Music App?

With a K-pop music app, you can have your favorite Korean songs with you on the go. Whether you’re at school, at work or traveling, you’ll have your tunes with you. It’s so much easier than lugging around a textbook to study Korean!

Plus, apps will provide you with a greater variety of Korean music options than you might otherwise maintain. Downloading individual songs can get pricey, and you may find yourself limiting your listening options to save money. With apps, though, you’ll have a lot more songs at the tips of your fingers. And you know what that means: More great Korean vocabulary!

And best of all, when you have a K-pop music app on your phone, you can fit in a little Korean practice whenever you have time. Songs are brief, so they’re an ideal learning tool for when you only have a couple minutes free. Plus, since you can listen to K-pop songs hands-free, you can listen in the car, during your shower or even while you’re cooking.

4 K-pop Music Apps That’ll Make You Dance for Joy


Available: iOS | Android


Yes, you may already have one of the best K-pop apps installed on your phone or favorite device.

Spotify, one of the top music apps on the market, has plenty of K-pop songs that you can enjoy. You can search by song or artist, create your own K-pop playlist or listen to an existing playlist. And with countless existing playlists, you’ll have no trouble finding one you love. For instance, if you want to listen to some songs that were popular recently, check out “Best of 2018: K-Pop.” Like something light and uplifting? Check out “Bubblegum K-Pop.” If you like to listen to K-pop to get your energy levels up in the morning, try “Morning K-Pop!”

A free option with ads allows you to listen to playlists, albums or artists on shuffle. A premium account removes the ads, allows you to download songs to listen to offline and gives you more control over what songs you listen to and when.

KPOP Amino

Available: Android


KPOP Amino is a free app dedicated to all sorts of Korean entertainment. However, the focus of this app is somewhat different from the others. Rather than providing you with songs or videos, KPOP Amino’s main focus is giving you a community to discuss your favorite Korean entertainment.

Sure, there’s also plenty of great media, like photos, GIFs, memes and blog posts about music, celebrities, culture, fashion and language, but what makes KPOP Amino stand out is all the fans. You can share your own fan art, post about your favorite singers or celebrities and participate in special fan “projects.”

And while you’ll get plenty of opportunities to learn more about K-pop and discuss your favorites, you might also be able to befriend a native speaker who happens to share your interests. Then, you could establish a conversation exchange to talk about K-pop one-on-one.


Available: iOS | Android


A free app with K-pop videos and no ads? Yes, please!

Mubeat lets you stream popular K-pop videos for free, all without having to interrupt your learning with pesky ads.

The videos come from three Korean TV channels: KBS, MBC and SBS. They feature popular artists, including BTS, Red Velvet and EXO, so you’ll have plenty of great viewing ahead of you. You can even follow your favorite artists so you don’t miss any of their latest videos.

Not sure what to listen to? Regularly updated charts will help you see what’s hot at the moment.

And if interacting with other fans is more up your alley, Mubeat also allows you to share images and posts with the community.


Available: iOS 


Sometimes, a good cover can be even better (or at least more interesting) than the original. If you can’t get enough K-pop covers, you’ll definitely want to try the Coverstar app.

Corverstar is a free app that allows you to view user-uploaded K-pop covers. But that’s not all! You can also upload your own covers, which is the perfect opportunity to get in some Korean practice while channeling your inner pop star.


So go ahead and indulge in your passion for K-pop.

These four apps will give you all the songs you need to get your Korean skills in tune.
