"Kissing You" is the third single by South Korean girl group Girls' Generation, from their debut album, Girls' Generation (2007). Released in early 2008, the single hit number one on both SBS's The Music Trend and Mnet's M! Countdown.[1] The song was also the "Song of the Month" in February 2008 on KBS's Music Bank.[2]

Music video[edit]

The music video featured a cameo from Super Junior's Donghae as the shared love interest.[citation needed] The video followed a candy theme, with the group members dressed in white and dancing whilst holding a lollipop (both concepts that also feature in live performances of the song, including covers by other groups.) The music video was released on January 14, 2008.[citation needed]

Rhythmer Volume 1 remix single[edit]

In January 2008, it was announced that people could submit their remixes of "Kissing You" to a website for a chance to have them officially released.[3] The four chosen remixes were then digitally released in March 2008. The Skool Rock Remix Version, the top choice in the competition, was included in the re-release of their debut album, Baby Baby (2008).[4][5]
