#3 Seventeen “Very Nice”
This song was the lead single from the repackage of the group’s first album. I think this is my earliest memory of them? I think it’s the suspenders lol. I love suspenders. Still not clear what’s going on in the music video. She’s…just killing them? Making their hearts explode? Is that what’s happening here? With her mind? What kind of power? And looking so unbothered by these boys. I love that energy lol.
#2 Wonder Girls “Why So Lonely”
Ugh they are so gorgeous! I love all this styling so much. This was the first Wonder Girls single not written by JYP, and the three songs released on the single were written by the members themselves. They also played their own instruments. I love this music video too. Perhaps I too have shoved a useless male mannequin into the trunk of my car but that is beside the point. This would end up being the group’s final #1 song, they would formally disband 6 months later.
#1 GFRIEND “Navillera”
2016 was the group’s big breakout year. This was the lead single from their first album “LOL”, and would debut at the top spot. It also was the follow up to “Rough”, their very first #1 that was released earlier this year. This song would win a total of 14 music show trophies, the second most wins for a girl group. The most girl group wins that year? That would be “Rough”. And with all those wins I still don’t remember this song lol. I do remember the MV though. They look cute!
#4 Beast “Ribbon”
This was one of the singles from their “Highlight” album. It was the group’s first release after Hyunseung left, and the group’s last release under the name “Beast”. Do you think if they pulled a Shinhwa and took it to court that they would have been able to keep the name? Or maybe was it time to move on? At the end of the year they launched their own label after leaving CUBE. This album would hit the top spot on the charts, and this song would peak at #4.
#9 NCT 127 “Fire Truck”
So I’m not too familiar with NCT or their sub-units, but from what I could gather from Wikipedia, this is NCT 127’s debut song? After the announcement of the unit debut, this music video was released just a week later. I do remember this song, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the MV before. Just out there spraying people with water hoses? Why? What is going on here? For the second time this week, Grandma is yet again confused by a music video. Youths!
