Flashback Friday

And so summer starts. I just finished up a new batch of these posts, and I hope you’re ready for some summer bops, because they're coming up soon. Every week I go through the charts for this day in the week and post the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we are going back 10 years to the 1st week of June, 2010.

#3 4Minute “Huh”

Personally, one of my most favorite songs and eras from the group. This was the lead single from their “Hit Your Heart” EP, I remember I really liked this whole album. This song would stay in the top ten for a few weeks. Here’s the group looking damn fabulous doing a remix of the song on SBS Gayo at the year’s end.

#2 CN Blue “Love”
“Love” was released only a few months after the group’s hit Korean debut “I’m A Loner” in January. I didn’t realize that both the songs were so early in their career. Those two songs are also the only CN Blue songs I also recognize at first listen lol. Here’s the song from a show in 2015.

#1 Wonder Girls “2 Different Tears”

This has been posted before, so this time let’s check out the English version. I think the MV is pretty much the same? I think I’ve only seen the Korean MV twice because I didn’t like it lol, so I don’t really remember. This was the first release with new member Hyelim after Sunmi’s departure, and the follow up to “Nobody”. The song would debut at the top spot, and the girls would the start of their North American tour a month later.

Honorable Mentions

#4 Davichi “Time, Please Stop”

I remember this MV! I really liked the animation mixed with the live actors. It stars T-ara’s Eunjung, living out a modern Snow White life. It was the lead single from the duo’s “Innocence” EP, and would peak at #4. The song was the follow up to their goddamn bop “8282”, and shows off more of a rock side to Davichi.

#9 Super Junior “Bonamana”

This the group’s first release after the success of their “Sorry, Sorry” album. It was released almost exactly a year after the repackage album (which features my only real favorite Super Junior song, the great “It’s You”). I didn’t like this back then, and it doesn’t do anything for me now. I remember the speed skating choreography though. Also, this MV also feels very low budget? Like, this was the follow up to "Sorry, Sorry", they could have done more.
