Birthdays constitute milestones in our lives. With every year, there are so many things to reflect on: habits to leave behind, decisions to be made, life goals, and so on. Basically, birthdays can be our own personal new year.

Birthdays have also been the topic of many K-pop songs, each representing the artist’s perspective of either their passing or upcoming year, and sometimes a mix of both. Here is a selection of songs that can guide you in your own birthday reflection.

1. Jeon Somi – “Birthday”

“New birthday, new me” is one of the most common birthday mindsets, and Somi knows a thing or two about it. According to her, feeling reborn, free, and being a completely updated version of yourself is something to keep in mind as you celebrate your merry day.
