So your part of the world has gone on coronavirus lockdown, and you’re stuck at home (thank you for doing your part to stop the spread!). At first it might sound kind of nice to not be able to go anywhere for a bit. You can finally take some time for yourself, focus on a project or two, maybe find a new hobby…but then the days stretch into weeks and you realize that when you’re stuck in one place, it can be hard to motivate yourself to do homework, work, or, well, much of anything at all — not to mention the boredom.


Luckily, music is a great way to combat monotony, and these 17 K-pop songs are chill enough for lazy days, but bright to pep up your mood. Most importantly, they’re addicting enough to have on repeat until quarantine is over — but in the meantime, you might just find them #relatable to your social distancing life!

1. “Humph!” — PENTAGON

No song is a more perfect anthem for the times than “Humph!” considering its Korean title (and catchy chorus) literally translates to “you can’t come closer.” But “Humph!” also just happens to be a great song to listen to when you’re bored at home: its youthful, bouncy vibe will brighten your mood, and it’s so infectious you’ll want to put it on repeat.
