ASMR is the latest craze that is sweeping the internet, so it’s no surprise that many K-pop idols have given it a try. ASMR stands for “autonomous sensory meridian response,” which describes a tingling sensation that some people experience in response to certain auditory and visual “triggers,” like whispering or gentle hand motions. Even if you don’t get the tingles, you’re bound to find ASMR videos relaxing, especially when they feature the gorgeous voices of your favorite K-pop idols! If you need help falling asleep, or if you just want to have a few minutes of calm, these 13 ASMR videos will help you out. So get comfortable, pop on your earphones (for the full ASMR effect), and get ready to be relaxed!

1. Stray Kids

Stray Kids members Felix and I.N show that they have in-depth knowledge of ASMR on this V Live, utilizing soft writing and tapping sounds to lull their members to sleep around them. Felix’s deep, rich voice is the cherry on top of this relaxing video.

2. HyunA

If you know HyunA for her sexy and bold stage persona, you may be surprised at how well-suited she is to a soft-spoken ASMR video. As she whispers soothingly and sips delicately on tea, HyunA will have you so enthralled that you’ll forget there aren’t subtitles.

3. MONSTA X’s I.M

I.M is another idol with the perfect voice for ASMR, and he puts it to use in this soft-spoken, clearly-enunciated video. The lyrics of MONSTA X’s “Fighter” become poetry with I.M’s smooth narration!

4. Ahn Hyeong Seop

Ahn Hyeong Seop gets creative with scissor, tapping, and writing sounds in this video from W Korea. You’ve never seen (or heard) an arts and crafts project that is this relaxing.

5. DIA’s Jung Chaeyeon

Don’t say I didn’t warn you: this one will make you hungry! DIA’s Chaeyeon narrates in a whisper and sips on soju while samgyeopsal (Korean pork belly) sizzles on the grill.

6. GOT7

GOT7’s Youngjae and BamBam got creative for their ASMR video, using salt and pepper grinders as unique auditory triggers. The resulting scratchy sounds are oddly satisfying!

7. Zion.T

It was only a matter of time before someone turned ASMR into a variety show, and Pikicast does just that with the show “After Mom Goes to Sleep.” Idols must be careful not to wake up the “mom” in the background while they perform missions. Some idol guests are more successful than others, and Zion.T (along with his friend, bodybuilder Jang Sung Yup) managed to pull off this cooking show fairly quietly, guiding viewers through the steps with his naturally relaxing voice.

8. JBJ’s Kwon Hyun Bin

Hyun Bin has a gorgeously sexy voice, and when he pairs it with writing and paper sounds, the result is absolutely sublime. Get ready to be mesmerized!

9. gugudan’s Mina

Mina has a singsongy lilt to her voice that is especially entrancing, and her subtle hand movements and charming smile are the perfect finishing touches to this ASMR recital of the lyrics to gugudan’s “A Girl Like Me.”

10. BTS

BTS, ASMR, and delicious-looking chicken — what more could we want? These CFs for coconut chicken feature satisfying crunch sounds and soft whispers from the boys.

11. Super Junior’s Yesung

Get to know Yesung through this ASMR video, as he soothingly whispers his answers to interview questions. He even manages to sing snippets of songs in a soft, ASMR voice that is downright heart-melting!

12. Red Velvet

Red Velvet’s ASMR video is sleepover-themed, making it perfect to watch at bedtime. The girls creatively use slime to make interesting, gooey sounds that, along with the cozy slumber party aesthetic, will lull you right to sleep!

13. JJ Project’s Jinyoung

Not to be outdone by Youngjae and BamBam, GOT7’s Jinyoung and JB also made ASMR lyric videos during their promotions as JJ Project. Jinyoung’s rich voice and slow narration make this video an ASMR masterpiece.
