Big Bang, Girls' Generation, BTS, EXO and More! Kpop Hits That Need Acoustic Versions Now

Kpop hits have proven their mettle in the charts. The upbeat arrangements and the catchy lyrics have won the hearts of fans all over the world. But once in a while, Kpop idols prove that they can level up the appeal of their hits with a more subdued acoustic approach.

An All Kpop suggests some of these Kpop hits that these idols have covered acoustically in their live performance, from Big Bang, BTS, to Girls' Generation to SHINee. Plus some released materials that could have been better if they were released as acoustic tracks.

Based on the list, Girl's Day did well with the upbeat and playful version of their song "Twinkle Twinkle" but when the girls performed the piece live for an audience, they decided to switch it up to acoustic. The new arrangement conveyed the uncertainty of a girl who likes a guy but is unsure of whether she should fall in love with him and appealed to a whole new emotion.

"Lies" is perhaps one the most popular songs from Big Bang's long list of hits. When they relied on their beatboxing skills and performed the song live, audiences were impressed with a whole new flavor that the performance brought.

BTS is smashing records left and right for their songs "Spring Day" and "Not Today" and have proven themselves as bankable performers with their unique and stylish vibe on stage. When they professed their undying love to their fans with only their voices and acoustics, their BTS "Army" fell more in love with the purity of the song's meaning.

Girl groups with exceptional vocals also made it to the roundup with Girls' Generation's "Gee Gee Gee Gee, Baby Baby", "Goodbye Baby" by Miss A, and Glassbead by "G-Friend". For fans who forget that Scarlet Heart Ryeo leading lady IU has an amazing voice, her acoustic cover of "Good Day" will be a fitting reminder.

VIXX's acoustic take of their song "Error" was notably error free. GOT7 and SHINee shone in the subdued versions of their hits "A" and Hello," respectively.

Meanwhile, a separate report from Koreaboo hinted that some tracks that were not quite successful upon their first release could have been better released as acoustic singles. The post credited acoustic arrangements for allowing audiences to concentrate on the meaning and the feeling that the song brings which are often muddled by other elements included in the MVs and the performances.

The list included EXO's "Growl" which the group performed acoustically before a live audience and After School's "First Love." Also included in the list were Teen Top's "No More Perfume On You" and SISTAR's "Touch My Body"
