I can’t believe I’ve never done a proper post on Year 7 Class 1 because they’re amazing and I’ve been completely in love with them for a while now. They’re like Lovelyz with the bad girl edge of Stellar, media playing everything from bullying to flashing their panties on stage.

Their scandalous upskirt choreography comes from their perfect single “Always,” which sounds exactly like an old Girls’ Generation b-side and features a point dance that has the members lifting up their skirts to reveal their underwear.

Although “Always” tanked, the choreography became a hot topic online and produced countless fancams that teetered on Hani-style viral stardom but never quite crossed over.

Now, over a year since its initial release, “Always” has been reissued with a brand new music video (well, two brand new videos if you include the ‘Dance Ver.’).

With its innocent concept, throwback sound, and underlining sexuality, “Always” is more on trend now than it was when it first came out. If Lovelyz did this, it’d be a hit for sure.

I’m not sure if “Always” will finally catch on now (probably not), but I hope it does something for the group and at least yields some more fabulous live performances.

By the way, it looks like they’re about to advance into Japan?

If you want more Year 7 Class 1, then you should also check out their goofy AKB48 rip-off “Break Up Hwaiting” and their addictive cover of the 1988 hit “White Wind” (and their legendary live stages).

Enjoy.

    Yessssss this choreography is giving me life!!!
    Still deciding on whether or not I should stan them but I’m now waiting for them to pull a Nogizaka46.

    How could you forget to mention their iconic debut with yet another AKB48 rip-off???

    I love that they have their very own IU clone. <3

    Is it bad I starting stanning them after this? In all honesty the song is better than Anal Bead and anything Apink has released past Mr.Chu in my opinion.

    • Hiddensone

      They would make a killing in Japan though

    I also noticed one of the members looks like Yura and Junghwa’s love child. She is perfection.

  • Mattey

    They’re like the group of Catholic school girls that go sex crazy from being underexposed and repressed for so long.

  • Sunny

    in a perfect world, Gfriend would be flops and Year 7 Class 1 would be viral sensations.

  • KingBeaArthur

    Boooo! The camera should’ve tilted down during the skirt lift! We ALL know what the soldier boys and uncles want to see..

    “Always” is still great, but “White Wind” is their best effort imo.

  • I wouldn’t be grossed out if the youngest member wasn’t like 15.
