    For the first song ("Upside Down" - A*Teens), it seems like many of the Korean commenters had experience listening to it as part of their English classes in some way or another.


    This is so interesting to me. There are definitely some western songs that are somehow disproportionately popular in South Korea even to this day. I noticed some western songs may be released at a certain time, but don't pick up steam in South Korea until a while later.


    Side note: I miss old-school teen pop.
