Flashback Friday

This week seemed to fly by! Maybe because I’m dreading the weekend. Family weddings, ugh. I don’t even know if it’s an open bar or not. Every week I go through the past charts for this day and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week let’s look back on what we were listening to in the 2nd week of December, 2010. A few songs were posted before, so we’ll see some live performances this week. Lots of fun jams!

#3 Girls’ Generation “Hoot”
I liked this song, and I definitely liked the live stages more than the MV. Because l adore the styling this era so much (omg I love big hair lol). They look sooo good! The song is fun too, and I still love this choreography a lot. Shashay right into my heart with those struts Miss Seohyun and Miss Sooyoung.

#2 Beast “Beautiful”
This is my favorite song from them. I still scream out the “Nothing better than you. You, you, you, you!” part, I love that part lol. I’ve never seen the MV before though. I wasn’t expecting that teen dance movie plotline! Hyungseung and his crew should have won it lol. Anyways, this video features predebut Apink’s Naeun. She’s a baby here!

#1 Kara “Jumping”
I swear, Kara has some of the bestest bops for working out. I think I have a Kara song on every workout playlist. Them and Britney, lol. This is a fun song to dance around to. I barely remember this MV, but I do remember some of this choreo. Oh, the little booty pop lol! Looks like girl groups were really loving thigh high boots in the fall of 2010.

Honorable Mentions

#4 Orange Caramel “Aing”
This is the song I always think of first when it comes to OC. I think it’s the costumes, lol. I always remember the fairy tale outfits and petticoats. This was the lead single off of their second mini, just a few months after their debut.

#7 PSY “Right Now”
This is my favorite PSY song! I remember being really into it when it first came out, and it’s still my fav. Apparently this song is 19 & over, banned because of the line “Life is like toxic alcohol” lol oh Korea. Here’s the song at his Seoul Plaza concert, a free show that drew over 80,000 people. It looks like so much fun! All his shows do.

OC's A-ing is the first post about them I remember because when it came out I was newer here so it holds a special place in my heart ♥

oh Hoot - one of many songs where Hyoyeon got 1/2 to 1 line near the end.

aaah, so many great songs!

i remember when they dropped the teaser for hoot everyone was surprised, cause no one expected them to come back at that time. i also think that hoot is one of their hardest choreos.

early 2010s was amazing, just bop after bop.
OP, the other apink members are also in the mv iirc. just in the background.

i used to dance along to jumping so many times, aaaah memories ;___;

Jumping! A song where I thoroughly enjoyed both the JPN and Korean versions tho I remember being wtf about the point choreo change. Plus blonde!Gyuri during this era was goddess tier /hearteyesemoji

Was there ever a time when she wasn't a goddess, though

Every Kara song was a true bop tbh. I loved every title of theirs. They would truly never disappoint :3
sweetestbliss1 17th-Dec-2018 02:42 pm (UTC)
Was there a reason why they changed the choreo? I remember being so confused watching the Korean version and wondering why they changed the choreo!

Good luck at the wedding OP, lol

I love Hoot so much. The song, the concept, everything.

2010, wow. I was like....15 lol. I remember lurking omona when all of these came out. Hoot's outfits forever hold a place in my heart

jumping is a fucking BOP and i love orange caramel

side note, beautiful was my first kpop song EVER back in middle school

2010's the year that I really started to follow Beast after seeing them perform live June that year. "Beautiful" is so cute along with "I like you the best". If not mistaken, they're connected.

And of course KARA! "Jumping" is a bit like "Step". I love both songs!

uggh i miss kara and orange caramel. they released bop after bop with epic music videos
chibi_rei 15th-Dec-2018 06:10 am (UTC)
I was so obsessed with Hoot. I learned all the choreography! I watched the video to see what I remembered, but not exactly on point any more lol.

Hoot is such a good fun song!! and what a distinct style and era!

gosh I miss OC so much :c such a good group oh my gosh

Hoot is a really underappreciated SNSD era. Great styling, great hair (Sunny!!!!), lovely song and fun mini album. I do remember this was around the preperations for their first JP tour and everyone looked exhausted though (Yuri was so thin....).

Jumping!!! Love that one still. Kara around 2009-2012 was my favourite. So many fun releases from them, and Sweetune was booming back then too.

I loved Aing~ too. OC in general was great and I miss them.

oh man hoot was the first kpop song i ever downloaded! a friend of mine showed me a bunch of snsd songs back when i barely even knew what kpop was (i didn’t even fully get into it until a couple years later) and that one just stuck with me for some reason.
premonitioner 15th-Dec-2018 10:49 am (UTC)
what an excellent week! every song is great!
lydzi 15th-Dec-2018 11:21 am (UTC)
*sending you good energy for this weel end ♥*

Those songs are all such hits. I love all of them !! Boping through all of them :3
countthesaints 15th-Dec-2018 11:31 am (UTC)
Ah, I miss Kara sfm. :(

"Hoot" is still one of the best SNSD title tracks and the mini album was great too.
aures 15th-Dec-2018 02:10 pm (UTC)
ohhhhh i love hoot, jumping and aing - i miss that time so much
also is it just more or have both girlgroups and boyband/groups gotten a LOT skinnier over the years? i remember watching back then thinking WOW they are skinny but when i look back at old(er) kpop songs (like real back in the day like 8-10 years ago) they were a lot "fatter"
myungung 15th-Dec-2018 02:51 pm (UTC)
hoot was the first comeback era I experienced as a sone, and I felt the hype. the teasers and MV were great, and it was the start of Hyoyeon looking great
daynr 17th-Dec-2018 08:46 pm (UTC)
that hoot choreo looks deceptively simple, but the weight shifts and leg/feet movement!

OP, these posts always introduce me to something new. Thanks!
shazz_chan 18th-Dec-2018 08:05 pm (UTC)
Also my fav PSY song, and Jumping yes!!

I loved Hoot styling too...
