Today is a special day that comes only once a year—for all the Star Wars fanatics, it’s a day worth bringing out all the Star Wars gear. Today is May 4th, better known as May The 4th Be With You, which celebrates Star Wars Day! And what better way to celebrate than with a dash of K-pop? Let’s take a moment to reminisce the times where K-pop met Star Wars.
One of the biggest collaborations from Star Wars and K-pop was EXO‘s single, “Lightsaber”, which stemmed from a partnership for the release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens movie. The cinematic music video led fans of both sides raving for more! Even a breath-taking pictorial with Vogue featured the members for this franchise project.
How about another throwback?
This time let’s take it back to 2NE1‘s “Follow Me”. Who could forget the Star Wars reference here? Check out the fun music video!
Another one of our favorites—when GOT7‘s Jackson battled it out with Defconn in a lightsaber duel!
Of course, we can’t forget the idols that sported Star Wars gear and sparred with lightsabers! The members of B.A.P, SHINee, BTS, and Twice definitely work the style!
We hope these moments satisfied your love for K-pop and Star Wars! And remember—May the 4th be with you.
