Favorite socially/politically conscious songs done by a korean artist?

  • powerful messages in songs is one of the things i find myself looking for the most .

    i have been looping change by RM and wale for ages and it is in my opinion one of the best songs lyrically speaking and with an incredible message to boot .

    RM blew me away with the level of lyricism in this ultimate collaboration .

    Favorite verse:

    [Wale (Rap Monster):]
    Moonz, prayin' for better days for you and I
    I see progress via my daughter's eyes
    I think I think too much now and drink too much now
    I numb it 'cause I don't wanna cry
    (Prayin' for better place for you and I
    I see some grass growin' in winter's eyes
    I think I think too much now and drink too much now
    To numb it 'cause I don't wanna die)
    I believe that real friends love you to no limit (yeah)
    I believe that real change lies in the mirror (yeah)
    Since I was a little one wasn't 'posed to get much status
    Now they got they hands up for me like a stick up
    (Say, "Hands up, hands up" like a stick up
    Hands up, hands up like a stick up
    Since I was a little one, wasn't 'posed to get much status
    Got they hands up for me like a stick up, check it)
    [Wale & Rap Monster:]
    Take it day by day, night by night
    It's on you and me if I'm gon' shine
    Not stoppin' day by day, night by night
    It's on you and I
    Moonz and the ARMY right
    (My hands up)

  • I'd pick breathe since its a song about the poor air quality in korea (air pollution) while also illustrating the social pressures of being an artist/musician that has to live up to so many expectations.

  • Bapsae/Silver spoon


    They call me a try-hard

    Our generation has had it hard

    Hurry, chase 'em

    Thanks to those that came before us I'm spread too thin

    They call me a try-hard

    Our generation has had it hard

    Hurry, chase 'em

    My teachers were born with it all

    At my part time job, it's "all for experience"

    At school, there's the teachers

    My superiors use violence

    In the media they go on about "the generation that's given up"

    Change the rules, change change

    The ones who came before us want to, want to maintain

    But we can't do that, bang bang

    This ain't normal

    This ain't normal

    Ah, stop going on about 'effort' and more 'effort'

    Ah, it makes my skin crawl

    Ah, try harder, ah, try harder

    Ah, you really don't have a chance

    As expected of the ones before us

    Ah, stop going on about 'effort'

    Ah, it makes my skin crawl

    Ah, try harder, ah, try harder

    Ah, you really don't have a chance

    (As expected of them), they meet your expectations

    (As expected of them), they've earned their name

    (As expected of them), they can just take it all

    (As expected of them), those that came before us

    They call me a try-hard

    Our generation has had it hard

    Hurry, chase 'em

    Thanks to those that came before us I'm spread too thin

    They call me a try-hard

    Our generation has had it hard

    Hurry, chase 'em

    My teachers were born with it all

    I've got a crow-tit's legs, and you have a stork's legs

    They all say their legs are worth a million bucks

    My legs are shorter, so how do you expect me to keep up?

    They say it shouldn't matter since we're coming from the same place

    Never, never, never

    Change the rules, change change

    The ones who came before us want to, want to maintain

    But we can't do that, bang bang

    This ain't normal

    This ain't normal

    Ah, stop going on about 'effort' and more 'effort'

    Ah, it makes my skin crawl

    Ah, try harder, ah, try harder

    Ah, you really don't have a chance

    As expected of the ones before us

    Ah, stop going on about 'effort'

    Ah, it makes my skin crawl

    Ah, try harder, ah, try harder

    Ah, you really don't have a chance

    (As expected of them)

    It's my fault? You're joking, right?

    This is fair? Oh, are you crazy?

    This is right? You must be kiddin' me

    You must be kiddin' me

    You you must be kiddin' me

    Ah, stop going on about 'effort' and more 'effort'

    Ah, it makes my skin crawl

    Ah, try harder, ah, try harder

    Ah, you really don't have a chance

    As expected of the ones before us

    Ah, stop going on about 'effort'

    Ah, it makes my skin crawl

    Ah, try harder, ah, try harder

    Ah, you really don't have a chance

    (We're try-hards), we meet your expectations

    (We're try-hards), we've earned that name

    (We're try-hards), let's all just get along well together

    (We're try-hards), try-hards

    They call me a try-hard

    Our generation has had it hard

    Hurry, chase 'em

    Thanks to those that came before us I'm spread too thin

    They call me a try-hard

    Our generation has had it hard

    Hurry, chase 'em

    My teachers were born with it all

  • Bapsae is a no branier, but people sleep on Am I Wrong! The lyrics are so deep and I am pretty sure that they treaded on a fine line with some of the things they alluded to :eyes:

  • This just came out this week, but Cheetah's new MV touches on domestic abuse. I would watch Cheetah assassinating domestic abusers all day tbh.
