Flashback Friday

Every week I check the 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 we are looking back to the 2nd week of October, 2011. Some of the songs have been posted before, so we will see some live comeback stages.

#3 Sung Sikyung “I Like”
I could only find a re-upload of the MV. This song appeared on his “The First” album, 10 years after his debut. I think I do remember this MV, it feels familiar to me. The video stars actress Cho Yeojeong, who can be currently seen as the mother in the film “Parasite”. Coincidentally, today is the film’s US release day. I’ve been seeing articles about it everywhere.

#2 Davichi “Don’t Say Goodbye”
This was the single off the duo’s third EP, and would peak at #1. This stage is so weird! Half the time they are facing away from the audience, and how are they not dizzy? I also want to get a better look at those dresses because they look so pretty. They sound so pretty as well.

#1 Kara “Step”
Omg I remember not liking the styling so much! Probably my biggest memory of this era wtf. Also, I wasn’t a biggest fan of the song, but it’s forever on my workout playlist lol. I miss them.

Honorable Mentions

#6 Super Junior “A-Cha”
A month after the group released “Mr. Simple”, they released a repackaged album with “A-Cha” as the lead and title track. I don’t remember this repackage at all. But I can hear how it could fit in with “Mr. Simple”.

#9 G.Na “Top Girl”
I don’t think I’ve seen this video since it came out. The more I watch the more I remember this choreography. This wasn’t one of my favorites from her, but she looks so happy here. I hope she’s doing okay now.

G.Na's songs are really fun. I have lots of favorites from her.

"Step" is one of my faves from KARA. They really have unique songs thats perfect for them.

I loved Step so much, its unbelievable. Like, mr is iconic I get it, but I think Step is also KARA at its purest essence. It's my favorite album (I am acoustic version and Dear Kamilia?? My Pearl Peach tears yall) and I won't lie and say I wasnt --obsessed-- with Gyuris red hair during that era or the lurid neon and shiny leather outfits. Nicole was also super fit that era, her workout routine was so talked about!

In my heart, KARA's the only group who can wear anything and I'd still say the styling is good =) I was just watching their stage compilation a few days ago and was smiling from start to finish.
