Debuts are some of the most exciting things to K-pop fans, but groups and artists are increasingly dropping more pre-debut content in the lead-up to their official debuts.
In an interesting new thread over on Reddit, K-pop fans got into a fascinating discussion about some of their favourite pre-debut songs and MVs. With Reddit being the home to a large number of fans who have diverse tastes and interests, the answers were certainly very interesting.
Here are some of the best pre-debut K-pop songs and MVs according to fans:
- Kim Lip's Eclipse
NCT - Switch
This song was first revealed at their smrookies shows before they debuted but we finally got the MV late last year. Also not sure if it counts but the shorter/other(?) version of The 7th Sense which was released after SM revealed NCT's name and member concept.
- Obviously gotta plug monsta x Hieut from No Mercy with Shownu, Hyungwon, and Minhyuk (and Vasco, Nochang, and Junggigo) and then 0 from No Mercy with Kihyun, Wonho, IM and Jooheon (and giriboy, madclown, and jooyoung)
- History. still confused as to why it wasn't exo's debut song
- Lovelyz' JIN's pre-debut MV for Gone is definitely at the top of my list. First of all, the song showcases her vocal color better than most Lovelyz songs. Second, the storyline is soooooo heartbreaking.
- Geumanhae I don't recall~
- seventeen's shining diamond
