Flashback Friday

Welcome to another Flashback Friday. I look through this Friday in the past years’ charts, and post the top three songs from one of them. Then, I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we’re going back to the 2nd week of September, 2008. Coincidentally, the group with their debut song at #3 is set to make a comeback very soon…

#3 2PM “10 Out of 10”
This is probably my second favorite 2PM song. I remember really, really liking this song! God, I haven’t seen this is forever! This MV features G.Na, whom I miss and hope is doing well wherever she is.

#2 Lee Hyori “Hey Mr. Big”

This song was the second single off of the damn iconic “It’s Hyorish” album. I remember the fan chants for this song the most, lol.

#1 Big Bang “Haru Haru”
Although I love the stripped down version that they perform now, I think that version is better to listen to. To just sit back and listen and cry at the beauty. This original version, however, I think is better to singalong to. Like, really good screaming the lyrics while you’re in the car kinda singalong. Also, I can only do the fanchant with the original version lol what a loser.

Honorable Mentions

#4 FT Island “After Love”
I kept replaying the MV, but I don’t remember this song at all. Not even a little. But I’ve always really liked Hong-gi’s voice.

#7 Shinee “Love Like Oxygen”
I think I remember this song? The chorus sounds really familiar to me. And I’m loving the pastels.

i kind of wish big bang would just randomly release a mv that's haru haru level of overdramatic nonsense i'm dying of cancer so i'm going to tell all your best friends but not you and then dump you to make you hate me so you won't feel sad when i die


autumn 2008 was when i really got into kpop (thank u wonderboys for introducing me to snsd), even tho i'd been dipping in and out since 2007.

It's so weird to see that version of Jay Park.

And dang, forgot how emotional the Haru Haru mv is. I haven't seen it in years. But yes, I agree OP the stripped down version they perform now is so beautiful and hurts even more emotionally.

i don't think i was around for any of these releases bur haru haru is a kpop classic and LLO is an underrated bop that I need to see performed !! (but maybe it's not underrated and i just haven't heard much hype about it because i wasn't around when it came out lol)
xxmannequin 10th-Sep-2016 12:49 am (UTC)
''Love Like Oxygen'' is one of my favorite Shinee songs everrr!! It's such an MJ-feel song, ahhh the memories. My first kpop band-crush <3 I kinda feel sad hearing it lol.. It's been so long wow.

''10 out of 10'' always lifts up my mood and takes me to my happy teenage days. But, when it comes to 2pm nothing will top ''Again and Again'' for me. There're a few others, but A&A is ughhh kpop embodied (that chorus + lame rap parts, I embrace them).

Lmaooo now I remembered how I felt post ''Haru Haru'' video, I forgot about the dying girl and rest of the nonsense, lmao. My poor heart and wasted tears. In all seriousness, Big Bang is everything honestly. I still love all of their songs the same to this day. Oh how I used to overplay them, I even got my brother to listen to them for some time.

i got into kpop in 2008!!!!!! fuck now i feel old. i remember stanning shinee when that song (and the "cold ice baby" one, forgot the name) came out.

10 out of 10 will forever be a classic. im so glad chansung ditched the long hair that was NAGL

I miss Lee Hyori, it's been 3 years since Monochrome and it was a great album.

anyway, here's some trivia for those who didn't know LLO's original version

This was such a good time. All the bops.

I will always love 10 out of 10, Haru Haru and Love like oxygen.
It's so weird to see how young they all were! And in 2pm's case it's even weirder seeing Jay as part of the group.
(BUT long hair Chansung! <3 )
