Flashback Friday

Every Friday I check out the charts for this day in the past. I post the top three song and then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we’ll see who was on top for the 2nd week in February, 2011. The top three have already been posted before, so let’s check out some live performances. Some of these songs this week were probably stuck in your head at one point. I’ve personally had 4/5 worm their way into my brain lol.

#3 Secret “Shy Boy”
I didn’t like anything about this era at all. Still not feeling it after 7 years. Their debut song continues to be my most favorite.

#2 G.Na “Black And White”
This did very well on the charts, but it’s another song I wasn’t fond of lol. Everything else about this era was okay for me though, she looks cute in the live performances and the MV is adorable.

#1 TVXQ “Keep Your Head Down”
The only males this week! I remember the live performances of this more than the music video. Probably because it seemed like they promoted for a long time. And the choreography, I remember this choreo so much. I replayed this video over and over again because I kept staring at his chest waiting to see nipples. So much dancing and movement, and yet no nipples. Where are his nipples? Why can’t I stop wanting to see nipples? Someone find me his nipples.

Honorable Mentions

#5 Navi “Well Done”
I think there is only one Navi song that I really like…and this isn’t it lol. But I recognize this song, and she sounds great though. I love her voice. It always sounds like glass, so clear and clean. I don’t know how to describe it lol. But I like it. The filter on this video is blinding though lol.

#9 Jewerly “Back It Up”

Ahhh Jewerly! I’ve always had a special place in my heart for them. I think they still hold the record for being the longest running girl group? 15 years, I think? Not my favorite song from them, but I already know that this chorus will be in head for the rest of the day. I remember really loving Baby J’s black and white outfit here.

Yea I didn't like their Shy Boy or Starlight Moonlight comebacks, I was confused why there were so popular back then lol but then Love Is Move came out and I liked them so much more

Also I hope Brown Eyed Girls breaks Jewelry's record...no hard feelings Jewelry but I really love BEG, they already have 12 years now and no member changes! I hope I don't jinx them

Secret's fiercer tracks were my favorites (TALK THAT IS THEIR MAGNUM OPUS) but I have some sort of appreciation for Shy Boy, idk why probably nostalgia. Back It Up by Jewelry was so fun, I can't listen to it without having the chorus stuck in my head for the rest of the day.

Shame about G.Na's career, I liked her debut song and her first few singles better than her later stuff but after the scandal... it's too bad. Female soloists are really thriving right now, she could have had a great comeback

seeing both shy boy and KYHD instantly made me remember this mash-up
chibi_rei 11th-Feb-2018 01:32 pm (UTC)
Omg me too! I still love that mash-up.

seeing & hearing shy boy and starlight moonlight makes me question why these two songs were ever released in the first place. they're were my least fav songs from Secret, but ngl, i liked the 50s retro concept for Shy Boy.
dior_chic 10th-Feb-2018 04:27 am (UTC)
Yea that was my first time experiencing in kpop a comeback I wasn't too into lol, I'm also curious why they were their biggest hits, they have much better songs! Also their career seems so short when I look at their discography :(
pearlychoco 11th-Feb-2018 01:49 am (UTC)
i think it had to do with the fact that both the songs i've mentioned are more on the "cutesy" side of Secret, but ia with you that they had way better songs. Madonna, Poison, I'm in Love - ugh, so good!

slightly OT but when Secret was nabbing trophies during the Shy Boy era, my bf would refer to Hyosung as "the crybaby" lol I was like "She has a name, you know?" :P

I don't know what Y'ALL are on - shy boy is a CLASSIC, up there with WG's retro concepts, and the B-side - #1 - is a BOP
sra_interesante 10th-Feb-2018 12:28 pm (UTC)
well shy boy is literally the only secret song i know , when i got into kpop they suddenly went on hiatus ....
aures 10th-Feb-2018 01:21 pm (UTC)
oh i miss secret so much, i loved shy boy, but i think that had more to do with the fact that i was very much in love and i loved songs like that during that time haha
but surely, it was no poison, love is move or madonna, that were some of their best was

i loved keep your head done so much
aures 10th-Feb-2018 01:39 pm (UTC)
we don't really have groups anymore who do sexy like Secret

OMG OP! I ended up watching the KYHD video twice after reading about the whole nipple thing, bc you're right! It's so weird, and I know that Korea has some broadcast laws that don't allow nipples to be shown. But even then, I was like, "Is it hidden with makeup? Did they slap a pasty on it?!" I finally just full-screened and voila! At [hhttps://youtu.be/HFaZ0rHiRjA?t=28], you can see one!

I still can't believe I ended up looking so closely for that 😅

Actually, it won't do the embed at the right time, but it's between 28-31 sec during his first dance break.

Yes, i see it now lol! I watched it so many times and was wondering if it was covered up with makeup/pasties too. Then i seriously thought that his nipples were under his armpits. They look tiny too lol.
illusions_chan 12th-Feb-2018 03:43 pm (UTC)
Seriously tho, I had to google "Yunho shirtless" to first even figure out where to look 😅 It was so ridiculous bc I kept getting Changmin instead, and I was like "Is Maknae just more comfortable stripping down or something?!" I finally found one decent one and then I was like, "Okay, now let's watch this" 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Tiny maybe... but... >.> <.< really nice color, like he has a really nice complexion all over. >.> <.
