The 10 Best K-Pop Tracks to Use as TikTok Sounds
K-pop is a diverse genre with artists ranging from bubblegum pop to EDM to hip-hop and more. Often, artists even make these songs with the intent of creating a viral challenge for fans to partake in—and those that are good enough can often make their way outside of being used exclusively by fans.

As plentiful as catchy and danceable K-pop songs are, here are 10 tracks that stick out as the best to use as TikTok sounds.

3. 'Do It Like This' by P1Harmony
The boy band created their own dance challenge for fans to follow along, and the energy is infectious. The hip-hop-inspired track is something straight out of a Step Up movie, but we aren't complaining.

7. 'Dumb Dumb' by JEON SOMI
The instrumental whistle alone is enough to get some heavy usage out of this song, but incorporate the wordplay of "dumb dumb," and it's hard not to see this song pop up on the K-pop side of TikTok. Even actresses including Sofia Wylie have participated in the dance challenge for this song.
