Moments During the FIFA World Cup When K-pop Shined: After the 2022 FIFA World Cup, South Korea achieved a remarkable feat by advancing to the round of 16 for the first time in 12 years. Even more improbably, Korea advanced from the group stage courtesy of a stunning, dramatic goal by Hwang Hee-Chan, assisted by none other than Son Heung Min!
The World Cup is monumental because it demonstrates how many cultures can come together under the common bond of a single sporting event.
The World Cup was a showcase for Korean culture, and there’s no better way to tell the tale of Korea than through the internationally acclaimed music genre known as k-pop.
K-pop was featured frequently during the tournament; now, we’ll examine when it stole the show. Let’s investigate the moments of k-brilliance pop during this massively popular competition.
Opening Ceremony – BTS Jungkook performing “Dreamers”
Even though the entire song is sung in English, “DNA” is still classified as k-pop because it was released by none other than Jungkook of the internationally acclaimed boy band BTS.
The song “Dreamers” has been at the top of the charts since before the World Cup started, and it perfectly captures the spirit of all the teams competing in the tournament, notably South Korea. What a fantastic showing for Korea at this year’s World Cup!

YB Band – The Reds and Korea
Twenty years after his breakthrough with “Oh feel Korea” in 2002, Yoon Dohyun is returning with the official South Korean cheer song for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
This song included the artificially-formulated voice of the late South Korean soccer player Yoo Sang Chul and was widely featured in Korean media, where it evoked strong emotions.

Transfixion x Oh My Girl – The Shouts of Reds 2018
The official 2018 FIFA World Cup South Korea cheer song was performed by Transfixion and Oh My Girl four years ago.
The city of Seoul played this song whenever the South Korean team scored a goal during the street cheering event, although it was not the official anthem for the 2018 tournament. It’s great for revving you up and making you feel patriotic.
