Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! How is everyone? I’m annoyed because that “check engine” light in the car is on and I do not need any more stress this week. Anywhos! Every week I check the charts for this day in the past and share the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week we are going back to the 4the week of January, 2013.

#3 Huh Gak featuring Yoo Seungwoo “Monodrama”
This was one of the singles from his “Little Giant” album. It did very well, it peaked at the second spot and is one of his biggest selling songs. Joining him on the song is another Superstar K alumni, Yoo Seungwoo. For the singer’s 10th anniversary just a couple of months ago, Huh Gak’s labelmates took turns covering his songs. This one was covered by Victon’s Sejun and Byungchan.

#2 BoA “Disturbance”
This was a non album single that BoA wrote to celebrate her first solo Korean concert, "Special Live 2013: Here I am". It would end up being her only Korean release this year, she would release a string of OSTs in Japan. The music video was directed by her brother, and stars Taemin. It has a Choose Your Own Adventure/Black Mirror Bandersnatch ending.

#1 Leessang featuring Eugene “Tears”
This was a non album single featuring Eugene from The SeeYa. OT, but how confusing is it that there were groups named “SeeYa” and then a spinoff group “The SeeYa”? They weren’t active at the same time, but only a year separated them. It was the same company too, they could have just kept the original name and like just graduated the members or whatever. Anyways, this song did really well and is one of their biggest selling songs.

Honorable Mentions

#9 Girls’ Generation “I Got A Boy”

8 years later and I still don’t know how I feel about this song lol. Like, I listen to it, but I’m not sure if I like it or not. Definitely remember not liking the styling this era though. The song would peak at the top spot and sell very well too. The album was the second best selling album of 2013. The MV has been posted before, so here’s the girls doing the song on their Romantic Fantasy comeback special.

#10 Verbal Jint featuring Kang Minhee “Good Start”
This was a non album single. He didn’t put out any albums or EPs for almost three years. Just a bunch of singles, all of them collaborations with other artists. This song features the vocals of Verbal Jint’s labelmate, Kang Minhee from the duo group Miss $. This was a good start (see what I did there) to the new year, and would peak at #5.
