What have you been doing with your life if you're not a fan of Day6 or haven't listened to any of their songs?
THE CHARTS ARE ROCKING. South Korean rock band of five members. 'You Were Beautiful,' by DAY6, is back on the charts. This song altered the lives of the five members of DAY6.
Hold up. Who's DAY6? What exactly is DAY6?
DAY6 is a JYP Entertainment five-member rock band from South Korea who debuted in 2015 with the mini-album, 'The Day.' Sungjin, the band's leader and main vocalist, is in charge of rhythm; Jae, the main vocalist and lead guitarist, Young K, the lead vocalist and rapper, is in charge of bass, and Wonpil, the lead vocalist, is in charge of keyboard and synthesizer. Dowoon, the youngest, is in charge of drums and vocals, as well as shaking the hearts of fans with his visuals. They classify themselves as a band that "sings for all the moments," as they are known for blending pop-rock, synth-pop, and electronica into their music.
Here are some unforgettable tracks, including one of the most remarkable songs, which caused all fans to go insane when they first heard it.
DAY6 has a song called "Zombie." It was released on May 11, 2020, as the title track of their sixth Korean mini-album, The Book of Us: The Demon. The song is also available in English as the last track on the same mini-album.
“How to love” is a groovy cut from the band's The Book of Us: Gravity mini-album, which was released in 2019. It is perhaps their most promising attempt at genre experimentation (which is saying a lot because like...every song where they experiment with sound is their best). “How to Love” is influenced by the '70s psychedelic pop and retro era. With a relatable message of love-seeking and Young K's flawlessly delivered high note, you have a perfectly crafted song that makes you wonder why DAY6 hasn't been making music like this all along.
On the top, “When You Love Someone” is a simple song with an acoustic guitar driving it, no flashy vocals, and very little build. Despite its lack of theatrics, the inspiration behind the lyrics is what makes this song stand out in DAY6's impressive discography. The song is inspired by a fan's selfless love expressed in a fan letter.
Wonpil, Jae, and J.Y. Park co-wrote the band's first drama OST, which was featured on the tracklist for the web series Want More 19. The song also marks the first time the JYP group collaborated with their company's namesake. DAY6's catchiest hit, despite their catalog of extremely catchy songs, is without a doubt "Chocolate." The funky guitar and dreamy synths in “Chocolate” make it hard to get the song out of your mind. JYP artists have a knack for dropping earworms as it is.
“Shoot Me” has been DAY6's most popular song since its release in 2018. The track earned the band newfound popularity as the title song from Shoot Me: Youth Part 1, resulting in a large number of fans, particularly from abroad. Among the DAY6's heavier tracks, with one of the band's strongest guitar riffs, pulling influence from punk music. The anthemic "bang, bang" chorus is especially memorable and easily resonates with everyone, regardless of language spoken, which may be why it's considered a "gateway song" to becoming a fan of the band.
In 2017, DAY6 launched an ambitious project called "Every DAY6," in which they released two new songs every month of the year. “I Wait,” a high-octave song with a build that rivals the bass line. Unlike the band's previous releases, which leaned heavily toward the pop side of rock, "I Wait" is more daring in every way, from the instrumentals to the vocals. It captures your attention right away with its pulsing synths and keeps it throughout the song, from the explosive chorus to the electrifying bridge.
DAY6's "Sweet Chaos," from their album The Book of Us: Entropy, is one of their best-crafted tracks, following its recent release. “Sweet Chaos,” a fierce song centered on the upheaval that newfound love can bring, is deliberate in its seemingly chaotic mess. This song is easily DAY6's most complex in terms of the arrangement, but even those who aren't familiar with music theory can enjoy the rollercoaster ride that is "Sweet Chaos" because it is just so fascinating.
'I'll Try' showed fans a side of the band they hadn't seen before; this album about unconditional love was written with his mother in mind. While the message is moving in and of itself, it's the song's final chorus that really tugs at the heartstrings. Composed of exceptional singers, and the fully acapella, multi-layered harmony at the song's conclusion highlights their vocal abilities. DAY6 accomplishes much of what they set out to do, but with a song as fragile as "I'll Try," their talent is undeniable.
Since its release in February 2017, this song has been a staple on Korean charts. The song has also seen a recent spike on the MelOn real-time list, almost three years after its release, and it's easy to see why. “You Were Beautiful” has it all: soaring vocals, a gorgeous melodic line, and a heartbreaking bridge, this is the kind of song that changes you as a person the first time you hear it. The group's first full leads-in to the final chorus is downright heart-stopping, and it's a perfectly handled change of pace. “You Were Beautiful” is more than just a catchy tune. In reality, calling it a good song would be the biggest understatement, but since no fluttery adjective could probably do the song justice, I'll pass for "beautiful."
AND LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST . . .
“Congratulations,” a classic rock ballad with a biting sardonic tone, perfectly embodies the bitterness felt after a breakup. With only the opening drum beats and Jae's deceptively soft intro, the song hooks you from the start, and it's only when you get to the chorus that you realize this isn't just some ordinary hit—it's a headshot. It doesn't focus on sparkly lyrics or showy vocals, and it's not particularly advanced; instead, the vocalists' raw human emotion captures the listener's attention. "Congratulations" is heartbroken and mocking just as it should be. This is what makes "Congratulations" so iconic!

DAY6 may have fewer camera spots, but after reading this, you've begun to stan them. Not just because they're not well-known, but also because their music is intimate and self-written. I must believe that they've worked their way up from the bottom.
