Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! Every week I go through the old charts for this day in the past and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, let’s see who was on top 10 years ago in the 2nd week of August, 2009. A week full of iconic ladies!


#3 Kara “Wanna”

I was really into this song back then. I still think its super catchy and I still remember this choreography. The song did well, but they didn’t promote for very long. The follow up single, “Mister” was released a few weeks later and became their big breakout hit. Oh God, this made me miss them so much.





#2 Brown Eyed Girls “Abracadabra”
Awww yeah, it’s that time of the year again! The day when “Abracadabra” blesses these posts. This time, let’s check out the ladies on M Countdown’s 10th anniversary show in 2014. They look fabulous! So hot! The camera work sucks so bad though lol. But it’s okay, we’re too busy doing the dance anyways.





#1 Baek Ji Young featuring Taecyeon “My Ear’s Candy”

In the mood for a pop-dance-techno track to start off the weekend? Baek Ji Young and 2PM’s Taecyeon has got you covered. I don’t know about you, but I do enjoy being told I’m loved in 4 different languages in the same song. All the warm fuzzies. Last month she celebrated her 20th anniversary as a singer.





Honorable Mentions


#4 T-ara “Lies”

This is the group’s debut song. I don’t remember this at all, they wouldn’t pop onto my radar for another few months. But I thought they debuted a year or two later wtf. Here’s their debut stage on M Countdown. They all look so little and young.





#9 2NE1 “I Don’t Care”

More babies! Bommie in shorts aww so cute! Dara looks the same of course lol. This was the last single off of the group’s debut album, and the first song from them that I really really liked. It’s probably still my favorite. The song would later go on to win Song of the Year at MAMA. Now I miss them too.

I remember before I got into K-pop, the only bands I f'ed with were 2ne1 and SNSD. And honestly these two girl bands are ICONIC.

Brown Eyed Girls “Abracadabra” has the swag, arrogance, and just cool factor all around. What an iconic song.

When I got into Kpop Abracadabra was one of those 'Kpop 101' songs and it really stands the test of time

Regarding I don't care, this version of it is my favorite and it's so frustrating because this is literally the only video/song file I can find of this particular remix:



Until I ran into it again I almost thought I went crazy but thankfully it still exists.

i don't think any year has come close to the level of iconic as 2009 kpop. literally everyone had a historic release that year

It's been ten years and I still bop to Abracadabra as if it came out yesterday tbh. Timeless bop.

Echoing the 'abracadabra is timeless' comments. It holds up really well!

Im crying pearl peach tears at the KARA performance. I always consider it my fave title song and I loved that era sfm That styling is soooo 2009, but I love it

Abracadabra and My Ears Candy continue to be jams for eternity.

I Don't Care was definitely one of 2NE1's best sibgles and I still love it alot.
waves_of_light 10th-Aug-2019 06:20 am (UTC)
I just realized that that isn't Taecyeon in the Baek Ji Young video, it's Changsung lol. I posted the wrong video oops my bad. Song's still dope tho

I loveeee now omona hive mind is the same cause I purposely just come into comment how 2009 was full of quality bops! This was my most active time in kpop and we can all hear why!!

BEG’s stylings were so good that even though the other groups’ outfits/makeup look outdated now, their whole looks would totally be rocking in today’s fashion.

I look forward to this post every week and I especially it when you mention little anecdotes about your life 💕. Thanks for bringing us these quality content!

Oohhh same! I started in 2008 but the golden year of kpop for me will always be 2009.
waves_of_light 10th-Aug-2019 07:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you for reading these posts! I usually just type my whatever thoughts to fill up the space...i never really think anyone reads them lol!
babyjenkski 10th-Aug-2019 11:36 am (UTC)
KARA's still the best girl group for me :) and Wanna is really good!
