The ladies of Red Velvet swept the award shows last week with their newest ballad “One of These Nights.” They’ve took home the top prizes at SBS MTV The Show, KBS Music Bank, SBS Inkigayo, MBC MUSIC Show Champion, Mnet M! Countdown. Watch their witchcraft-y music video below:

GOT7 are looking super fly (sorry, had to) in their new music video for “Fly.” Dancing, outfits, cuteness level, all on point:

Lee Hi’s “Breathe” won first place the week before on SBS’s Inkigayo and Mnet’s M! Countdown. Congrats to her! See her perform on the Inkigayo stage below:
Mamamoo won two weeks in a row (last week, and the week before) on several music shows for “You’re the Best,” until Red Velvet sweeped this week. We’re loving their black and white Superwoman-inspired outfits on M! Countdown:
Dean & Gaeko
Dean and Dynamic Duo’s Gaeko released this super smooth song “D (half moon).” Dean’s “21” was also included on Apple iTune store’s “Best of the Week” playlist this week, the only K-pop song to be included! His first EP 130 mood : TRBL is out now.

Watch the Tiger Cave-directed music video, featuring their beautiful faces, below:
Unpretty Rapstar 2’s KittiB has a new video “Doin’ Good” (feat. Verbal Jint), her first song since appearing on the show last year. Can’t really express how into it we are, so just watch the badass video below:
Boys Republic are gearing up for their comeback with this medley highlighting their upcoming 3rd EP, BR:evolution. Listen below:
They also released this intensely sexy video teaser:
Jay Park’s animated music video for his song “The Truth Is” is very cute. It’ll give you all the feels:
Amber, who’s part of S.M. Entertainment’s über-popular and eclectic girl-group f(x), released a solo single “Borders” as a part of the SM Station project. Written and sung entirely in english, Amber (who was born and raised in Los Angeles) helped to compose, write and arrangement the song:
The boys of A.cian have a new bubble gum-poppy music video for their song “Touch.” Having gone through a change in management recently (they are now part of the new label Wings Entertainment, and regrouped as 4 members), it’s good to see A.cian back in action.
The Block B boys are apparently trying out a “neo-soul genre,” evident by their lovely and mellow first single “A Few Years Later” released ahead of their comeback, which is expected next month.
Eric Nam made his comeback with this tender and sweet song “Good for You,” which you can see him perform on Inkigayo:
Clad in all white ensembles, NU’EST looked super handsome as they performed their song “Overcome” on Music Bank this week:
Pop rock band F.T. Island are making their comeback in Japan with their new song “You Don’t Know Who I Am.” Watch their new music video below:
