Mnet’s Folk Us auditions has contestants reimagining BTS, Red Velvet, SHINee singles as folk music

Following the wild success of trot-based shows, Mnet is now pivoting to folk music, and so far the audition program Folk Us has provided some interesting entries that are relevant to K-pop as contestants have reimagined popular songs as folk tracks.


Lee Hyun – SHINee’s “Sherlock”

Song Yerin – Red Velvet’s “Bad Boy”

Jun Bum Sun – BTS’s “Dynamite”

While it probably has a lot to do with the contestant himself, SHINee’s “Sherlock” in this mode was especially cool.

My favorite performance of a non-idol song was 세번째다락방 cover of Windy City’s “Elnino Prodigo”, complete with folk beat boxing.

Folks (he he he), it’s lit.
