#3 Sistar “I Swear”
The Summer Queens released a special summer album in 2014, and “I Swear” served as the lead single. The rest of the album was basically made up of a bunch of remixes. This song was also the follow up to “Touch My Body”, which was released only a month before. I don’t remember them being out at the same time at all. Both songs would reach #1.
#2 Winner “Empty”
This was one of the two singles that the group made up their official debut. Both songs would peak in the top three, with “Empty” taking the #1 spot. They would also take their first music show win in only five days. They had such a good debut era. Remember those New York photoshoots with the huge ass photobooks? Like, I’m not a fan but I remember wanting one lol. Also, the era of Seunghoon in shorts. This stage, however, features Jinwoo in shorts.
#1 Super Junior “Mamacita”
This was the group’s first release in two years. It was released a month after Leeteuk came back from service, as well as Heechul’s comeback release as well. All I really remember about this era was thinking Donghae looked real good. It was the first time for me and I was so surprised lol. Also the Western themed MV. Busy day at MBC, both Super Junior and Sistar had their comeback stages today.
#5 Kara “Mamma Mia”
This was the first release after Nicole and Jiyoung left the group, and the first after Youngji joined. I think that I said it when I posted the MV here before, but I admit I didn’t give this song a chance back then. I was one of the “it’s not the same” people lol. So it took me a while to warm up to it, but it’s a solid bop and joins many other Kara bops on my workout playlist. Also, I love Hara with her bouncy curly hair…so fab!
#8 Girl’s Day “Darling”
“Darling” was the follow up to “Something”, which the group released at the start of the year. And something completely different! More fun and bubbly and summery. I remember really loving this era. They’re just so damn adorable! I mean, look how damn cute bb Minah is! The song would peak at the top spot.
