Remember HIGH4's awesome debut track "Not Spring, Love, or Cherry Blossoms," featuring the lovely IU with the voice of an angel? It did really well when it first came out, so it comes as no surprise it's returned to the music charts despite a year hiatus.

Considering this is a trend that happens with Busker Busker's "Cherry Blossom Ending," there are even speculations this song might become the second classic to experience a comeback every year.
