Girls’ Generation’s 2007 song “Girl Generation,” and the name of the group, is actually a cover of Lee Seung Chul’s rock song, released in 1989. Girls’ Generation and Lee Seung Chul have even performed the song together.

H.O.T, the original K-pop idols, released “Happiness” in 1997. Super Junior released their own version in 2007, ten years later.

Red Velvet’s second title since debuting in 2014 was “Be Natural,” which is a remake of S.E.S’s 2000 release. Just like H.O.T, S.E.S was one of SM Entertainment’s first idol groups.

BTOB “Second Confession” is actually a remake of g.o.d’s “One Candle.” The two songs are very different stylistically and lyrically, but the sound is the same.

Lee Moon Sae’s song has the distinction of being an early K-pop song, released in 1988, that was remade by both first and second generation K-pop idols. “Sunset Glow” was released by numerous artists, including Shinhwa in 2004, Big Bang and Big Bang in 2008.
