Wash your hands to these 20-sec K-Pop choruses!

The number of confirmed cases of the 2019 coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues to rise. Classes in Metro Manila have already been suspended (at least for a week), and a work-from-home option is being considered.

While it is not advisable to hoard face masks and alcohol bottles, we can still do our part to protect ourselves and others. Observe proper cough and sneeze etiquette, boost your immune system, and wash your hands.



It was formerly taught that washing your hands properly takes about a whole of the “Happy Birthday” song. But how about washing your hands while singing to your favorite K-Pop song? (Just a disclaimer, some of the choruses approximately finish at 20 seconds.)

Kick It

NCT 127 

Yeah, let me introduce you to some
New things (Ayy-oh), new things (Ayy, woah), new things (Woo)
Bass kick swingin’ like I’m Bruce Lee
Bruce Lee (Ayy-oh), Bruce Lee (You want it?)
Shimmy, shimmy, shimmy
불 붙을의 말이야 불 붙을의 말이야 (You know that)
이 무대에 오른다 때는 (Ha)
나는 이전 찌르는 좌우 Bruce Lee (Ayy-oh)
날아 다니는 하루 종일 Bruce Lee (Say what?)

Kick those germs away (at least with your hands) ala Bruce Lee!

Feel Special


You make me feel special
세상이 아무리 날 주저앉혀도 (앉혀도)
아프고 아픈 말들이 날 찔러도
네가 있어 난 다시 웃어
That’s what you do
Again, I feel special
아무것도 아닌 존재 같다가도
사라져도 모를 사람 같다가도
날 부르는 네 목소리에
I feel loved, I feel so special

Feel special while washing your hands!



손에 불 날 때까지 박수
이때다 싶으면 쳐 박수
저기 저기 이리 오지
우리끼리 신이 나지
이 노래 끝까지 쳐 박수
Woo, 짝짝짝짝
Woo, 짝짝짝짝

Although the song’s title is “Clap”, just refrain from clapping your hands to avoid splattering of soap and water.

Ice Cream Cake

Red Velvet

주세요 달콤한 그 맛 ice cream cake
특별해질 오늘에 어울리는 맛으로
입가에 묻은 ice cream 에
네 가슴 두근거려 내게 다가 오겠죠
It’s so tasty, come and chase me
못 참겠어 I screamm you scream, gimme that, gimme that ice cream

Always wash your hands before eating, kids!



가져와 bring the pain oh yeah
(Eh-oh) 올라타봐 bring the pain oh yeah
Rain be pourin’
Sky keep fallin’
Everyday oh na na na
(Eh-oh) 가져와 bring the pain oh yeah, eh

Because we can all be fighters against this virus when we follow proper protocols.

Kill This Love


Let’s kill this love!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Rum, pum, pum, pum, pum, pum, pum
Let’s kill this love!
Rum, pum, pum, pum, pum, pum, pum

Maybe instead of “love” you can say “virus”.

Hard Carry


Let it flow let it flow now
흔들었다 들었다 놔 하드캐리해
Let it flow let it flow now
흔들었다 들었다 놔 하드캐리해

Sanitation is now our “hard carry”.


Girls’ Generation

너무 반짝반짝 눈이 부셔
No no no no no
너무 깜짝깜짝 놀란 나는
Oh oh oh oh oh
너무 짜릿짜릿 몸이 떨려
Gee Gee Gee Gee Gee
Oh 젖은 눈빛 Oh yeah
Oh 좋은 향기 Oh yeah yeah yeah

You’ll never get this song out of your head and while washing your hands.

Call Me Baby


빛나는 것들은 많아
그 안에 진짜를 봐봐
Call me baby, Call me baby
Call me baby, Call me baby
(You know my name girl)
널 향해 커져간 마음아
너 말곤 그 문을 닫아
(You know I’m here girl)
Call me baby, Call me baby
Call me baby, Call me baby
몇 번이라도 Call me girl

Kahit wala kang ‘baby’, at least you can still this sing while washing your hands.



왜 예쁜 날 두고 가시나 (날 두고 가시나)
왜 예쁜 날 두고 가시나
날 두고 떠나가시나
그리 쉽게 떠나가시나
같이 가자고 약속 해놓고 가시나 가시나

When you are probably feeling sexy while washing your hands.

Be safe, KStreetManila readers!

Well – not always – but almost because it is part of her job description and because she is actively involved in church. Having the opportunity to join KStreetManila, she combines two of her loves – writing and Korean culture. During her downtime (which somehow rarely happens), she is either scrolling through Twitter, writing for her blog, trying to be fit, reading a good book, or appreciating beauty and fashion.
