Girl’s Generation – “Dear Mom”
Can there be more meaningful song than this one? The song was featured on the group’s first EP, “Gee” which was released in 2009 and it was composed by Kim Tae Sung, while the lyrics were written by Ivy. “Dear Mom” is a ballad song that perfectly portrays the love of a daughter towards her mother.
“I’m shy to express to mom, that I really love my mom.”
EXO – “MAMA”
A song that serves as EXO’s debut song was released in 2012 and was written and produced by Yoo Young Jin. In the song, the members are concerned about the changing world and people’s attitudes and ask “Mama” to change it.
“Wouldn’t we face our eyes anymore?
Wouldn’t we communicate? Wouldn’t we love?
Tearing up to the reality that hurts
Say MAMA if you can change it, say MAMA.”
T.O.P – “Oh Mom”
This beautiful song serves as a great example of the close mother-son bond. T.O.P himself, in an interview, shared, that this song was based on a true story, but did not share more details.
“Oh mom, what should I do mom? A selfishness hotter than a fire torments me, oh my god. Oh mom, I promise mom, what can I do?”
g.o.d – “To Mother”
The first generation K-Pop group debuted with this song, that tells a story of a man who comes from a poor family whose mother sacrifices everything she has to give her son a better life. She skips meals, helps her son get out of trouble when he has a fight at school and finally is able to open up her own restaurant. Unfortunately, she soon passes away making her son regret not telling her how much he loved her.
“I loved you even though I never told you once. I love you, please rest now.”
Jang Woo Hyuk – “Red Sun”
This song was written especially for Jang Woo Hyuk’s mother and through the lyrics, the artist apologizes to his mom for not being a perfect son.
“Because she is always in my heart. The most beautiful woman in this world, that person is my mother.”
Infinite – “Mom”
Similary to Jang Woo Hyuk, Infinite members apologize to their Mothers through this beautiful song simply titled “Mom.” They admit that their the biggest sin was not telling their Moms how much they love them.
“Love you, I really wanted to tell you, I love you
Common words but words I never told you.”
Ra.D – “Mother”
“Mother” is a beautiful song of a child who appreciates his mom and says she is the most beautiful person in the whole world. He also feels sorry because his small gifts are nothing compared to what she gave him.
My dear sweet mother
Why are those tears streaming down your face?
You are so precious
The most beautiful in the world
You are my
My dear mother”
Make sure to tell your Mom how much you love her every day! All the best to all the Moms in the world!
