It is amazing how much Kpop has expanded since the days we started our Korean addiction. Which is why we thought it would be a great time to do some throwback kpop MVs. Did yours make the cut? Be sure to let us know in the comments!
Day 6 – Favorite throwback Kpop MV (2012 or earlier)
Kdrama Jen: I Want Nobody Nobody But You
CLKYTTA: Sorry, Sorry- Super Junior
CLSunbae: Mirotic by TVXQ
Man, those haircuts are awful. But the song is catchy and the video is almost sexy. (I mean, it’d be full sexy but … those haircuts…) I enjoy watching the video and I still jam out to the song when I’m cleaning the house. Related note: after making a friend watch it with me, she asked if Korean men are naturally hairless. I’m still not sure. I was afraid to Google it.
KMUSE: T-ara & Shinee…. A Sampling
I had every intention of just picking one MV and going forward to answering the question for Day 7. Then I sign in and find that Mirotic has already been picked. Which means I had to go into my Kpop vault and choose another MV. An hour later I come out of my Kpop youtube rabbit hole and I just couldn’t choose just one. So instead, you get my top 4 from two groups that dominated my playlist back in the day.
T-ara Lovey Dovey & Roly Poly
Back before they had massive scandals and diva infighting T-ara put out some of my all time favorite female idol MVs. The second I hear them I just start tapping my feet and wishing I could be at a club dancing to their songs.
SHINee – Ring Ding Dong & Sherlock
You can’t have watched Kpop in 2009 to 2012 without being overwhelmed with massive amounts of SHINee. I remember Sherlock being one of those songs that stuck in my head for days on end. I possibly even dreamed the chorus as I slept. And if we are talking about great earworms than you can’t beat Ring Ding Dong.
