Moments Where K-Pop Met Star Wars

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.PSHINeeBTS, 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.

Happy 2 Year Anniversary to The Ark!

On April 10, 2015, a group of 5 girls set out to make an impact in the K-pop industry—strong and fierce in everything they did, they easily impressed fans with their cool aura. From doing dance covers of EXO‘s “Call Me Baby” and BTS‘ “Boy in Luv” to covering popular songs, they gained attention for their unique image and made their way for debut. These girls consisted of Jeon Minju, Kim Euna (Yuna), Yujin, Lee Suji (Halla), and Jane. The strong hip-hop girl group made their mark that day with their debut song, “The Light”—this powerful girl group was known as The Ark.

To pay tribute to the victims of the Sewol Ferry incident, The Ark dedicated the music video for “The Light” with a similar storyline, showing a mother losing her daughter in a bus accident. The music video covered the significance of treasuring loved ones and not taking the cherished time for granted.

The Ark were one of a kind, pushing forth a strong hip-hop concept that’s rarely found amongst girl groups. Together they began their promotions with their debut single, performing often at the Han River for dance covers specially prepared by themselves. Some of these dance covers include EXO‘s “Call Me Baby” and “Overdose”, as well as BTS‘ “Boy in Luv”. So much attention was brought to their phenomenal covers that even BTS reacted to their “Boy in Luv” dance cover.

However, as time went on, one of their vocalists, Yujin, had to take time off to undergo treatment for vocal chord nodules. Eventually, the girl group was confirmed to be disbanded in 2016 by their former company, Music K Entertainment, after a long hiatus.

Even to this day, fans follow the members of The Ark in their pursuit of activities after the disbandment, giving support for the girls to continue their dreams. Recently, Jeon Minju participated in KPOPSTAR’s last season, making it to the final 10; Euna Kim participated in the third season of Unpretty Rapstar, gaining recognition for her profound rapping; Suji and Jane became a part of The Real Girls Project: The iDOLM@STER. Check out the playlist of some our favorite performances by the members.

When asked about a reunion for The Ark members, Euna and the girls expressed that they’d like for one to happen. Despite being busy in separate activities, the girls still find time to keep in contact with another.

For honoring the 2nd anniversary of The Ark‘s debut and their strong presence in the K-pop world, let’s hope for a reunion to happen soon!
