#3 Dara “Kiss”
The MV is just a long Cass CF lol. The MV stars Dara along with actor Lee Minho, both of them Cass models back in 2009. I remember this being a big deal because this was right after Boys Over Flowers, and he and the show were at the height of popularity. Also, the kissing lol. The song would later be included on 2NE1’s “To Anyone” album.
#2 Kim Tae Woo “Love Rain”
One of my favorite K-Pop songs ever. I will forever sing along to that chorus, and watching the crowd in the stadium, I guess I’m not the only one. Yes, I know the lyrics are on the screen…but still! It’s probably his most popular solo song. I love it so much. Third time posting, so let’s check out a recent performance. Here he is a few months ago at the Dream Concert.
#1 Park Hyo Shin “After Love”
Some of my first K-Pop music video memories are the ballad MVs from the early 2000s, the really long videos that are like little mini K-Dramas. The SG Wannabe style lol. So this music video from Park Hyo Shin is giving me all the feels. This super dramatic 13 minute long video stars Park Si Yeon and Park Yong Ha. Park Si Yeon really looks the same, so pretty.
#8 f(x) “LA chA TA”
Their first single! I think that I remember the choreography the most from this era. Sulli is such a tiny little baby here. And I don’t think Amber can even see through those bangs wtf. Second time posting, so let's see a live performance. Here’s their debut stage, and oh my gosh the fan chants are already so loud! Ahhh I remember those fan chants too. Also, somewhat OT…but oh yes Miss Luna!
#10 Epik High “Wannabe”
Omg I used to be so obsessed with this video lol! I haven’t seen it in a really long time. They look so young! Well, it has been 10 years. It’s a parody of the hit movie “The Host” (memo to myself: it’s been far too long since I’ve rewatched that movie wtf!). This was the lead single of the group’s “e” album, the last release before Tukutz’s enlistment.
