Flashback Friday

Every week I check out the charts for this day in the past and post the top three song. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, let’s look back on the 4th week of January, 2009. It’s ladies night tonight! Lovely vocals and strong bops!

#3 Lyn “Love…It’s All Lies”
Every time I see this song pop up, I look at the title and think “…yes. All lies”. But I’m not salty or anything, I swear. Second time posting so here’s her comeback stage. I love her dress (it looks like a good buffet dress), and those bangs are too heavy for me but it still makes me want to cut bangs for myself. That’s going to be my Friday night…giving myself bangs. NOT SALTY AT ALL.

#2 Yoon Mirae “Please Don’t Go”
Don’t know where this video is from, and I don’t care because she sounds great! I couldn’t find an MV or any other live stage for this song. It was released as a single and not a part of any album. She really looks very much the same, even now. Jordan had already been born when this song was released, if you want to feel old lol.

#1 Girls’ Generation “Gee”
This was the group’s big breakout song, the biggest selling song of the year, and would become one of the biggest songs of 2009. It’s not my most favorite from them, but I will listen and do the damn dance every single time lol. It’s just simply a perfect K-Pop song. Third time posting, so let’s see a recent (or semi recent) stage this time. Here they are in 2015, at their Phantasia Tour in Seoul. They all look lovely.

Honorable Mentions

#8 After School “AH!”
They were really playing into the whole “Pussycat Dolls of Korea” thing back then, weren’t they? I remember this debut pretty well, but I always incorrectly remember “Diva” coming first wtf. But one look at this stage and all the choreography came back. I’m doing it right now. Here is their debut stage, with a little bit of “Play Girlz” as an intro.

#9 Gavy NJ “Love Story”
I don’t know much about this song except it sounds good lol wtf. I don’t remember it at all. But it does sound like something I’ve heard before. Like, from them or Davichi. I did recognize a young Lee Soo Hyuk though! He’s staring in the MV with a young Park Min Young.
