13 Beautiful Chinese Covers by Korean Artists

By  | 

Korean artists coming out with Mandarin versions of their original Korean tracks is no surprise to most fans, but we still appreciate their thoughts to do so.

When an artist or a group holds a fan meeting or showcase in a Chinese-speaking country, the artists will start picking up some Mandarin and Cantonese phrases so they can communicate better with the local fans. Or even greater, the artists will prepare a special stage: performing Chinese covers.

Most of the times, we will be amazed how well they actually sing in Chinese. Fans appreciate the effort, the work, the thoughts and the time they have put in to perform a brand new cover song, in a language that they are not familiar with.

Let’s fall in love with their vocals together! (The original song is linked to each song title)

Day6 – Little Love Song by Sodagreen

I fell in love, instantly.

VIXX’s N – Starry Mood by Jay Chou

Fellow member Ken also performed the same song at a Taiwan fan meeting.

Although this is a really a short one, still good job singing to the theme track of Taiwanese movie Our Time.

Hyukoh’s Oh Hyuk – Tian Mi Mi

Oh Hyuk used to study in Beijing, China, hence the accurate pronunciation.

Longer version, please.
