K-Pop Colors: Emerging Spring

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.

BTS – Spring Day

BTS does not disappoint when it comes to aesthetically pleasing visuals. This video slowly melts away a cold past to reveal the beginnings of a new season in life. The colors are like an Instagram filter, blurring the contrast between winter and spring where the whites are not quite white and the bolder spring colors are at a point of just emerging.

Yeri – Dear Diary

This song is so calming it’s like being enveloped in a warm sweater. The soft colors in the video are wistful and homey, like an old friend greeting you. The muted pinks, yellow, purple, green and teal are gentle and reminiscent of natural food coloring mixed with buttercream icing. It’s sweet and good for your conscience.

BigBang – Let’s Not Fall in Love

Yes, I realize that this is a far cry from “Fantastic Baby” but let’s appreciate the softness of BigBang at this moment.

This video gave me all the feels… Oh, the memories of a budding love that you don’t want to mess up because your relationship is innocent and fun. The aqua filter in this video distorts the bright pinks, yellow and cream colors — giving the effect of looking at the world through a somber realization of what could be.
