K-Pop Colors: Bubblegum Pop

This post is a part of a series of K-Pop Color Palettes. You can find a full list in the original post: Colors of K-Pop.

NCT Dream – Chewing Gum

Seasoned K-Pop fans knew this was coming. These super-talented teens are a perfect fit for this bubbly, youthful song where the colors really play into the theme. Bright pinks, baby blues, accented by pale yellows and creamsicle-oranges looks like you just poured out a jar of cake sprinkles.

Red Velvet – Russian Roulette

This song is has a sweet and semi-robotic boppy-ness to it and the ladies’ deadpan looks combined with the playful dance scenes fit so well with the music. The colors play into their luring sweetness with some underlying sinister motives. You will see sugary pastels with a signature pop of red that punches through each scene.

Got7 – Just Right

This song became a quick favorite in our family. The fun, feel-good tune, positive message (and easy dance moves) put this video on repeat on our TV. The color palette leans toward an artificially-colored cereal (also featured in this video). It has a color palette that you can almost taste — sweet oranges and yellows, strawberry pink, and a pop of slightly muted primary colors.
