#3 2NE1 “I Love You”
Ooh, that collective gasp that everyone let out when Dara first appeared on screen with that hair, followed up with a scream when we saw it in its full hot pink glory. This was such a good look on her. They all look so luxurious and expensive and I feel unworthy sitting here with my chipped nail polish eating a free Panera bagel.
#2 Sistar “Loving U”
I feel like this doesn’t get enough love on my playlists, and that needs to change…the song is so much fun! And they’re so freaking cute! I don’t think I’ve seen the live stages since then, I can’t believe I still remember the choreo lol.
#1 Psy “Gangnam Style”
Ah, what’s left to say about Gangnam Style? Here’s his performance at the MAMA awards that year. This was a good stage. I was so surprised at how young everyone looked in the audience, but then I remembered this was 6 years ago now wtf. I still remember watching this! And then the after party fan cams lol.
#8 T-ara “Day By Day”
I know I know this song, but I don’t remember the MV or the live stages at all. Google tells me that Hwayoung left the group not long after this performance. That part I remember...there was a lot going on there. Whew.
#10 Beast “Midnight”
Oh, I remember this. Wasn’t familiar by just the title, but playing it I definitely know I’ve heard it before. As far as I can tell, there isn’t a Korean MV for this song. Just a Japanese version? So here’s an audio video.
