During the year of 2005-2011 was the best years in the K-Pop scene. It was also called as the Golden Era, where all the big group such as DBSK, Big Bang, Super Junior, Rain, Lee Hyori, Girls Generation and Wonder Girls was in the scene. Do you remember how big and hit they are? Let me tell you guys the Best Things About the Old K-Pop Era and how much I really missed that time.
Why this period was the peak season of K-Pop waves?
This was the time where DBSK debuted with the song called Hug (2004), Super Junior debuted with Twins (Knock Out) (2005), Girls Generation with Into the New World (2007) and Wonder Girls with Irony (2007). And there was so many more groups. Do you remember how that was the glories’ time as a K-Pop fans?
They wasn’t just debuting, but they were coming out with a killer songs, so many things on and off set happening that time, only their true fans will feel it. Though I may not be their fans when they were debuting, but I manage to catch up with all of their activities 4 years later. That is when K-Pop becoming the big thing in the entertainment world.
Maybe at the time you wasn’t there yet, you was not introduce with K-Pop (or maybe I am old), but you are not late my dear. Here, let me tell you what is the best things happen during the Golden Era.
The Best Things That I Missed About the Old K-Pop Industry
and Why You Should Start Rolling In Together With Me
Their Hit Song
Each of the groups coming out with such a good and catchy songs everytime. Remember all the songs like U Go Girl, Haru Haru, Lies, Purple Line, Mirotic, Gee, Rainism, Tell Me, Nobody, Sorry Sorry, I am the Best. There were a lot more. Tell me if you are still listening to this songs. All of this songs have a strong rhythm and catchy lyrics, thus easily grabbing attention from fans.
The Friendship Between Idols
The idols are not competing each other. Music shows combining all of these legend was the boom. We can see it from collaboration stage between each of them, the backstage footages, and the variety shows they had together.
Awesome Cover Songs
One other thing that I love during this time was the cover songs sung by them. Listen to it and you won’t be disappointed.
Collaboration Between Groups
Back then we created Wonder Bang, Super Generation, f(SHINee), SHINee Generation, and also SoshiBang. When they are performing together, the world explode. Or we called it my ‘vagina’ explode.
Damn I am an avid shipper of Jonghyun and Jessica. Look at him staring at Jessica’s ass.
Another collaboration stage that was still the boom are like the controversial performance from Big Bang and Lee Hyori. Watch it first then say what you thought about it.
Wonder Boys and Boy Generation
This was the special group they created consist of member from Super Junior, Big Bang, SHINee, 2PM and 2AM. They are the legend, yet they manage to entertain us in a different way. Gosh I was so looking forward to both of this performance.
Aren’t this is just the cutest?
Back then most of the idols have their own variety shows that showcases their individual true self. I know we now also have variety shows for idols, but the shows wasn’t so fun like Super Junior Exploration of Human Body, SNSD Girl Go to School. SHINee Hello Baby, Star King, Star Golden Bell, and others. Nowadays I don’t seem to really enjoy variety shows and often forgotten.
Having all of this old shows is a blessed and I am still keeping each episode on my hard disk, ah my life!
Previously Star Dance Battle was the show I always waited for. Groups like Super Junior, Girls Generation and SHINee was the group who will bring us such excitement when they are dancing.
Why don’t this show exist anymore?
Shipping Between Idols and Dating Series
Who still ship their idols? Now I don’t. But back then I have so many idols that I shipped together. Including boyxboy pairing. Oh boy my teenagers life. Gosh that time I spend reading fanfic, does asianfanfic still exist now?
The Downturn of Each Groups
There was lots of controversial between groups during this time. I remembered how hard it was to accept that DBSK was not DB5K anymore. Then there was always a fight between Girls Generation and Wonder Girls fans, comparing each other, urgh those time is not forgotten at all.
I mentioned lots of Super Junior and Girls Generation in this post because I am their fans back then, their times come in a little bit later than Big Bang, DBSK, Rain and Wonder Girl. But all groups have their time, it was like everything was set and lining up to be the best.
I did not want to say that the K-Pop scene now is not good as before, but think about it, how long did they survive now, though lots of groups disbanded, but the remaining one still have power, their individual member still slay. Can we bring back all of the kings and queens of K-Pop back together?
All of this memories. All of this will not come back again. Some of the group may not be performing together again. Thus just a reminder to all the K-Pop fans especially the newbies, please don’t stop supporting your favourite group now because we never know what may happen 10 years later.
Did Any of You Missed the Time When Your Idol was Ruling The Kpop Scene?
