You all I know I love a good flashback! I’ve been doing the Flashback Fridays since 2016 now, and I wanted to try something a little different. So here’s another throwback series of posts, this time about our first loves. On the first of the month I’ll make a post with a different first love theme. Or maybe I’ll switch out one of Flashback Friday posts for one of these…I haven’t decided yet. 5 week months can be a pain and it would make it easier on me. But I digress...
I guess we’ll kick it off with the basics. First K-Pop song that you loved. The first song that you really, really, REALLY LOVED. The one that you think back on now like “yup, that’s the one”. That song that sent you down this K-Pop rabbit hole and is what probably ultimately brought you here today.
For me, it was D.J DOC’s “Dance With DOC” back in 1997. Jesus Christ 1997, I didn’t think it was that long ago wtf. I remember watching their performances on the music show on MBC (it wasn’t called Music Core back then), and I remember doing the dance at the Hwang’s Christmas party later that year. I’m thinking back on it now, and we must have been watching Gayo, since it was the end of year lol. This song wasn’t as super popular as some of their other songs, so I don’t hear it that often. But when I do, I get a little tickle in my tummy.
I love how laid back and relaxed things were back then. That’s singer/actor Lim Chang Jung with the video camera dressed in black, and Jinusean in blue. Just hanging out on stage during the performance lol. Like, no biggie.
What was your first love, Omona?
