7 Kpop 80s Remixes That’ll Make You Think You Traveled Back in Time

Let dance!!!

Sunmi – Heroine | 1980s concept

Sunmi’s Heroine already sounds a bit like an 80s song. But with a little enhancement iPARTYNAUSEOUS  turned this track into an 80s pop hit!

HyunA – Lip & Hip | 1980s concept

I’m not going to lie, upon first listen I literally thought this remix was a bit better than the original. It has a nice 80s Pop Rock flare, and even sounds like it may have a sample from The Saturdays – Disco Love. Which is a retro inspired song.

Red Velvet – Peek-a-Boo | 1980s concept

iPARTYNAUSEOUS, out did themselves with this masterpiece. I never thought I could like Peek-A-Boo even more than I already do! This remix has a funk 80s sound to it. This sound is actually used in Red Velvet ‘s“The Perfect Velvet” album



We just found BTS’s hidden 80s jam!! Lol and it was hiding in RYUSERALOVER’s youtube channel.This remix enhances BTS’s original beat with a 80s pop one that makes this song sound even better.


This 80s inspired remix could cure anybody’s cold lol. I always thought TWICE’s Signal had an 80s inspired sound. In this remix DANI took out the groups original electro pop beat and replaced it with a 80s inspired synth pop beat.

SUNMI & UHM JUNG HWA – Heroine X Ending Credit

If you ever wondered what queen Uhm Jung Hwa and queen Sunmi would sound like together, your dreams have just come true. This remix/mashup not only sounds like it could be on the radio. But it also sounds like it could’ve been released in the 80s.

Big Bang – Bad Boy 80’s Remix

I don’t know what’s better. The song or the fact that BIGBANG look so funny in this epic cover art.


SHINee x BLACKPINK – 1 OF 1 x BOOMBAYAH (80s mashup)


That’s the end of this list, the only thing I hate more than endings is that they aren’t more of these 80s remixes. Hopefully in the future they’ll be more to come!
