Idol groups typically change their concepts with every comeback, but some concepts made such a big impact during their release that they’re still a favorite today! Usually, these were heart-fluttering, nostalgic concepts that suited the group perfectly. Netizens recently discussed their top picks, and you can see if you agree below!
Some of Apink‘s best concepts are undoubtedly their early releases. The group made their debut with the song “I Don’t Know”, which had a refreshing and cute concept. Similar to “I Don’t Know” was their song “Nonono”—both of which suited their youthful image perfectly!
GFRIEND‘s school girl concept with the song “Glass Bead” is one that they pulled off exceptionally well! They have never looked as pure and angelic as they did in this debut release.
EXO‘s iconic song “Growl” had fans drooling over their unbeatable and cool visuals. If ever there was a concept to reminisce over, it would be this one!
4. Red Velvet
Red Velvet may have released “Ice Cream Cake” in 2015, but many fans still agree it was one of their best concepts. “Ice Cream Cake” was quirky, fun, and colorful—and quintessentially Red Velvet.
IU‘s “You & I” has a concept that gives off vintage and nostalgic vibes, something that suits her the best. If IU were to make a comeback, this concept should definitely be revisited!
Last but not the least, a BTS concept that is a fan-favorite is their “Hwa Yong Yeon Hwa” era. “Hwa Yong Yeon Hwa” means the most beautiful or happiest time of one’s life, and BTS was able to perfectly embody this concept because of their youthfulness and personalities.
Here’s to hoping we’ll see these concepts again in the future!
