Here are 7 Kpop female soloists with the best feminist anthems

HyunA – Roll Deep

“You can’t touch me, don’t touch me. I don’t care at all, my place is still the same.”

BoA – Woman

“No comparing, I shine just as I am. I’m beautiful enough, To be a woman.”

Jennie – Solo

“Used to be your girl/Now I’m used to being the GOAT

You’re sittin’ on your feelings/I’m sittin’ on my throne

I ain’t got no time for the troubles in your eyes

This time I’m only lookin’ at me, myself and I.”

CL – Baddest Female

“This is for all my bad girls around the world.

Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good, you know?

Let’s light it up and let it burn like we don’t care.

 Let ‘em know how it feels damn good to be bad.”

Maria – Hwasa

“I'm saying this for you/It's a shining night

Don't torture yourself/Oh Maria, I'm saying this for you

Why are you trying so hard?/You're already beautiful.”

IU – Palette

“I like it, I'm twenty five/I know that you hate me

I got this, I’m truly fine/I think I know myself a little bit now.”

Sunmi – Gashina

“I’m gonna live like a flower, I’ll be myself

Can’t nobody stop me now

No try me.”
