Throwback Thursday|SISTAR — Queens of Summer K-Pop Bops

Hihi BAYOG Fam!~ I’m doing a quick TBT post for y’all today. I’m really just trying to fit in as many summer bop posts for y’all~ lol Today’s a throwback edition though, since some of these songs are old by several years. We’re talkin’ about SISTAR’s songs. SISTAR has always been second generation queens that released some really great summer bops.

So some quick info first~ SISTAR was formed in 2010, under Starship Entertainment. The lineup included: Hyolyn, Soyou, Bora, and Dasom. Hyolyn was known to be one of the most talented and powerful vocalists in K-Pop. Soyou was also known to be an amazing vocalist. She did alot of OST work and solo projects that were popular. This included the famous song [썸(Some)], which she sang with Jungigo and also featured Lil Boi of Geeks. Seriously, these two have great [vocals]. You also have Bora, who is besties with Tiffany of Girls’ Generation. She was the rapper of the group. You might also recognize her from [Hwayugi] and Jay Park’s [Drive]. Lately, we have Dasom who also starred in some acting roles in series like [He’s Psychometric]. She also starred in K.Will’s [이러지마 제발 (Please don’t…)] MV, which was was really popular and went viral too. Dat plot twist. The members did plenty of solo work. There was even a subgroup called SISTAR19 that consisted of Hyolyn and Bora. I feel like everyone knew of SISTAR. They were known for their sexy kind of image. However, I still feel like they were still somewhat underappreciated. Unfortunately, the group disbanded in June 2017. They released their final single [Lonely] as their farewell song. The members have since pursued their solo careers in singing and acting.

Anyway, I think SISTAR were Queens of Summer K-Pop bops. They were fun, upbeat, bright, kind of sweet/cute, but also very sexy. They were just really fun bops~

TOUCH MY BODY (터치마이바디)

Released 2014

This is probably one of my favs~ The [acoustic performance] was really nice too~

SHAKE IT

Released 2015

Oh man… I think this was another well known one. I remember seeing the MV on TV alot when I was in Thailand.

I SWEAR

Released: 2014

This was another favorite. They just look like they were having a blast.

LOVING U

Released: 2012

BRUHHH. This one truly is a throwback. I almost forgot about it. It really took me back LOL

SISTAR19(씨스타19) — MA BOY

Released: 2011

This is another oldie. Again, this by their subgroup SISTAR 19 which had Hyolyn and Bora. This was also a viral hit because of the body wave/roll move. I would say this is one of their most popular and well known songs. There’s also a clip of the whole group performing it together [here].


BONUS

I’ve included some solo works that are great summer bops as well~

HYOLYN (효린) — SEE SEA(바다보러갈래)

Released 2018

This is one of the songs Hyolyn released after going solo and starting her own solo-agency. It’s a fun bop. I love the retro vibe to it. It definitely screams summer bop.

HYOLYN (효린) — BAE

Released: 2018

It’s another fun summer bop with a hint of sweetness to it. Also…I’m like pretty sure this is filmed at the the same places as Tiffany’s [I Just Wanna Dance] haha~

HYOLYN (효린) — SEE SEA(바다보러갈래)

Released: 2020

This was a fresh release from Hyolyn. It’s got a reggae vibe to it.

HYOLYN (효린) — SAY MY NAME(쎄마넴)’

Released: 2017

This was a collab between Hyolyn and Kisum that was released when Hyolyn was still under Starship Entertainment. The track was produced by GroovyRoom, one of my favorite producers. They make great tracks.

SOYOU (소유) — GOTTA GO (가라고)

Release: 2020

This is also a fresh release from Soyou. I know Nick (@rokutsu ) has been enjoying this track haha~ It’s a fun reggaeton/dance hall track. It’s a track that definitely feels like a summer track with it’s tropical vibes. I was actually kind of surprised because I’m used to hearing ballads from Soyou. This was a nice and fun change though~ I liked it~

BE SAFE. BE RESPONSIBLE.
WASH YOUR HANDS. WEAR A MASK.
SOCIAL DISTANCE. PLEASE.

Take care y’all. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. All jokes and fun aside…please, please, please, pleaaaase always wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask! I’m serious. Please take COVID-19 seriously. It truly is a matter of life and death. It’s something that needs to be taken seriously. It’s not just about the death of if you or someone you know gets it, but it also heavily affects those left behind. There are also aftereffects for those who are able to get through COVID-19. Be responsible. Be safe. Take care y’all. Have a wonderful day.


BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation. Make sure to have those conversations. Aside from donating, I had several conversations with my family. I explained things to my parents, especially since some news stories were being reported inaccurately. I was afraid it’d be a bit difficult. However, as fellow BIPOC and human beings, it was a necessary conversation. My parents and grandma understand, and now stand on the same page regarding BLM as well. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:

Stay strong. Fight racism, brutality, injustice, and bullshit. Don’t lose sight of the goal. We’re witnessing and being a part of history. Be allies and make sure change happens. Once again, BLACK LIVES MATTER.

  1. Your post really makes me miss SISTAR as a group and the featured songs throw me back in time where I really did associate summer with them. I never saw any dramas featuring Bora. I recently watched Was it Love? on Netflix with Dasom and I think she did a good job with her role.

    1. They were such a great group~ I’m still sad that they disbanded, but happy that they’re able to pursue their passions. I liked her in Hwayugi. Hwayugi started off good and ended up sucking. But I stuck through because of Bora and FT Island’s Hongki. I really liked their characters. Bora basically played 2 different roles too. I haven’t watched Was It Love? yet~ But I’ll definitely check it out now~

      1. You’re very welcome~ Sorry if you end up being disappointed though. ^^” It had an interesting premise since it was loosely based on Journey to the West. It’s just that it got frustrating and the execution for the second half wasn’t great. But Bora and Hongki were really funny and cute haha~
