#3 2NE1 “Missing You”
They look so luxe and expensive and it hurts so good. This is my favorite Dara styling era. So many big hats this era. I love me a big hat. This song was one of the three singles the group released this year, and would go on to the top spot.
#2 EXO “Miracles In December”
This is the lead single off of the group’s winter album of the same name. I remember this, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the MV before. A little Nature Republic PPL thrown in here. Actually, a lot lol. This version of the video and song, the Korean version, features the vocals of Chen, D.O., and Baekhyun.
#1 Hyolyn “One Way Love”
This was one of the singles off of her debut solo album. I remember wanting to like this, but I didn’t like anything at all. I really hated her hair this era too. Like, for some reason that was my main focus wtf lol. Also, the chorus reminds me of Maroon 5. This song would reach #1, her only solo song to chart that high (besides her OST for My Love from the Star. I haven’t rewatched that drama since it aired. Did it age well?).
#7 Miss A “Hush”
This was the lead single off of their “Hush” album. I liked everything about this era except the song wtf. Love the choreo and the outfits…love this whole concept. But I still can’t get into this song. I know I’m in the minority on this lol.
#9 Crayon Pop “Lonely Christmas”
This was the group’s follow up to “Bar Bar Bar”. It does have a similar feel to it. This would do well on the charts, and sell well digitally too. I remember these Christmas tree outfits lol. They bought the helmets over from “Bar Bar Bar” too.
