It’s no secret that K-pop fans are some of the most dedicated supporters around, and part of the fun is the cool video edits they make to share with fellow fans! Whether it’s shorter form videos on a platform like Instagram or TikTok, or longer ones on YouTube, there’s so much talent in these fandoms. Here are six styles of video edits that will blow you away!

Stage Mixes

Among the most impressive edits are stage mixes, which combine clips from multiple performances with smooth transitions and zooms. This style takes advantage of k-pop’s structured choreography and planned camera angles for a truly incredible experience.

Fancams

Sometimes made by fans, sometimes by TV production companies, fancams center around a certain member of a group during a performance. They’re a great way for fans to share their appreciation of a member’s hard work or a dance move they did particularly well.

Who Danced Best?

Somewhat similar to fancams, “Who Danced Best” videos show appreciation for how well group members perform their choreography. They’ll analyze one or multiple performances to see what each member’s strength is in a certain routine.

How Would ____ Sing ____?

Fans reimagine their favorite groups’ hits with these videos predicting how another group would split the song’s lines! It’s a fun way to recognize two acts at once while being creative and analyzing what role each member plays in their respective group.

Crack/Funny Moments Videos

Funny moment compilations, also nicknamed “crack” videos, put together clips from interviews, behind-the-scenes videos, and more with the goal of making fellow fans smile. Fans often edit silly captions and effects onto the videos for an added laughter bonus.

Mashups

Music fans in all genres often make mashups combining two or more of their favorite songs, but K-pop fans take it to the next level by imagining a music video! These videos are such a creative experience that take a good ear and eye to make.
