K-Pop Fans Notice A Frequent Trend In Girl Group Music Videos These Days

It seems like every fourth gen girl group is following the trend!

Trends are constantly changing and evolving in the K-Pop industry, and with the music industry as a whole. Whether it’s a trend in the kind of music that’s popular at a given time, to styling trends, or something else entirely, there are plenty of instances where a trend takes off and is used repeatedly among different artists.

Recently, a post was made on an online forum that discussed such a trend that seems to be used heavily in current K-Pop girl group music videos. With the popularity of the girl crush concept still going strong in K-Pop, seeing female idols act tough and cool is a common trope in music videos these days.

More specifically, the trend that fans noticed was the inclusion of one or more members riding a motorcycle or some other kind of vehicle in their music videos.


There are numerous music videos of third and fourth generation girl groups featuring at least one scene with a member looking intently at the camera while wearing a motorcycle helmet.


And if they’re not riding a motorcycle specifically, then there’s usually a scene of them driving something else, even a quad!


This kind of scene definitely gives a tough-girl aesthetic to a music video, making the members look effortlessly cool (even though many of them don’t even have a driver license yet!).


A futuristic aesthetic is often paired with these kinds of scenes, which are also popular in music videos these days.


Here’s how K-Pop fans are reacting to the online post in the comments!

Given the success of many music videos that use this trope, we doubt that it will be going anywhere anytime soon!
