Valentine's Day comes once a year, but there's always time to get in the mood for love -- and what better way to set the mood than with some K-pop tracks?

Ranging from groovy R&B tunes to some of the more risqué K-pop tunes out there, here are 15 songs perfect to help you get into the Valentine's feel of things: 

“Baby” by Primary feat. Jooyoung

Jooyoung’s sweet tone overflows with seduction on this Primary track, with the producer laying out a steady clapping beat and groovy melody over which the featured singer could relay his intentions for the night.

“Baby Good Night” by BIGBANG’s G-Dragon and T.O.P

GD and T.O.P laid their desires bare in this sleek R&B tune, expressing their fondness for the women they’re in love with. It’s one of the more suggestive K-pop songs out there, with T.O.P referencing aphrodisiacs as metaphors to describe his ideal woman.

“Bad Habit” by G. Soul

All about wanting to dance and holding a “Bad Habit” closer, this sensual track was released by the smooth-crooning alt R&B artist last year.

“Best of Me” by BTS

This sleek, Chainsmokers’-produced EDM track is one of BTS’s most romantic, beginning with Jimin and Jungkook singing about how they feel when being told that they're loved and continuing on from there.

“Body Talk” by Red Velvet

Red Velvet’s standout “Body Talk” overflows with passion, utilizing nostalgic ‘80s synths to create a backing track for the quintet to sing over. The song itself is about the importance of body language at the end of a relationship, but it makes an undeniably sultry listening experience. 

“Eclipse” by Loona’s Kim Lip

Beautiful in its R&B smoothness, “Eclipse” is hypnotizing with its atmospheric synths. There’s a sense of lushness to the tune and Kim’s echoing delivery, and it’s chill-inducing.    

“Fantasy” by Fei

Living up to its name, Fei's solo track offers to fill every listener's sexual "Fantasy" with its provacative tone.

“Fine” by Jonghyun

This jazzy song by Jonghyun is a lesson in healthy relationships, with the singer asking his lover if she's ready to tell him what she needs to move forward romantically and physically. 

“Jam Jam” by IU

The disco-lilt of “Jam Jam” is mesmerizing in an upbeat way, and subtly smoldering as IU requests sugar; something bad for her body.  

“Paradise Lost” by Ga-In

The dramatic promise of "Paradise Lost" is worth a few moments of passionate desire, making this song by the Brown Eyed Girls member the perfect soundtrack to listen to while letting loose of your inhibitions. 

“Playboy” by EXO

"Hey, playboy," Kai croons and then EXO lets loose, offering up the sultriest song by the boy band, grooving slowly along to the beat as they seduce the listener. 

“Secret” by Bobby feat. DK & Katie

The promises of secrets and moving your body as sung by this trio are perfect to set Valentine's to. 

“Thirsty” by Taemin

The title says it all. “Secretly pour yourself on me," sings SHINee's youngest. "I wanna be filled with you."

“Whiplash” by NCT 127

There is little subtlety in NCT 127’s song that references knives, being dominated, and asking for that not-so-ambiguous “whip-whiplash.”  

“Yacht (k)” by Jay Park feat. Sik-K

Park’s groovy “Yacht (k)” is soulful in its undulating rhythm, setting the tone for an affectionate, yet playful, Valentine’s Day.
