‘Feels Good to be a Woman’: Your K-Pop Int’l Women’s Month Playlist

Happy International Women’s Month, KStreetManila female readers! We hope you are enjoying (so far!) this month specially dedicated to you. And as we continue to celebrate being women, we have compiled some of the best K-Pop songs on women empowerment – by women, for women.

No

CLC

Red lip? No. Earrings? No. High heels? No. Handbag? No.

Take it from CLC – a woman is not defined with what she has or what she is wearing. Furthermore, she is not confined within the labels of “innocent”, “sexy”, and “cute”. She is absolutely more than that.

I Don’t Need a Man

Miss A

Hands down to the K-Pop anthem of all independent women!

Girls on Top

BoA

BoA was already way ahead of her time with this release in 2005. Oftentimes as women, we are forced into a mold that fits according to society’s standards. But what if you are not like everyone else? Time to show them that girls can be on top.

Female President

Girl’s Day

Because in this day and age, women know how to take charge.

Yes I Am

MAMAMOO

A woman who embraces her uniqueness is a confident woman.

Dalla Dalla

ITZY

We are all created different, and that is only realized when we first love ourselves. Make sure to take cues from our This Month’s Beat!

I am the Best

2NE1

No Women Empowerment Playlist is complete without these legends.

Lady

Yubin

Former member of the Wonder Girls, Yubin, knows exactly how we feel as busy ladies. We hate wasting time – especially to men who just like to beat around the bush not knowing what they want in a relationship.

I Will Show You

Ailee

Going over a breakup because your man cheated on you? Show him that you’re over him by flaunting a better version of yourself – without him.

Bang!

After School

With hours of training to perfectly cop off the marching band look, the ladies of After School show that women can be trailblazers.

Wow Thing

Seulgi (Red Velvet) x SinB (GFriend) x Chung Ha x Soyeon (G-IDLE)

Never thought that these girls would come together, but they did! The lyrics pretty much showcase their journey into stardom – beginning as dreamers to a “wow thing”. And that can be your story, too.

Butterfly

LOONA

Prior to the release of their music video, LOONA garnered attention from their teasers that show women of diversity. Whatever color you are in and wherever you came from, you can reach your goals and fly like a butterfly.

U-Go-Girl

Lee Hyo Ri

We, ladies, can get worried on how we present ourselves. Lee Hyo Ri’s advice? Don’t worry and be yourself.

Woman

BoA

Because it is inner beauty that defines being a woman.
