Over on Reddit, fans have been talking about their favourite shots from K-pop music videos and it got us thinking about some of the most aesthetically pleasing moments from recent K-pop MVs.

Here's some of the faves fans pointed out that are definitely beautiful shots (in no particular order)!

1. BTS: "Spring Day"

It's hard to choose with so many incredible shots, but the slow pan onto the rapline standing outside Omelas is particularly beautiful.

2. IU: "Last Night"

The entire retro aesthetic of this MV is memorable, especially the two back up dancers looking very serious throughout.

3. Dreamcatcher: "What"

This earth-flipping moment with Yoohyeon.

4. iKON: "Love Scenario"

The rotating shot of doors opening and closing along a balcony is fascinating to watch.

5. BLACKPINK: "Ddu Ddu Ddu Ddu"

Lisa's colourful powder throwing that even Seungri couldn't help but imitate in "WHERE R U FROM"!

6. Red Velvet: "One of These Nights"

The slow shot of Yeri sleeping on the boat, filmed from overhead.

7. SEVENTEEN: "Change Up"

That shot of three members stacked on one chair is striking for both the arrangement and the colour blocking.

8. SHINee: "Good Evening"

The members dancing under the tarp and then the CGI-effect paint drip are both striking shots.

9. BTS: "Fake Love"

The water jetting out from behind Jimin in symmetrical perfection is hard to forget.
