When KPOP Songs referenced other KPOP songs

1. G-Dragon: The Leaders
Just to clear the waters this is NOT a song that references another despite common belief.

In this song, G-Dragon sings:

"My name is GGGG baby baby GD GD baby baby."

Which references Girls' Generation's hit song "Gee." This was the "it" song of 2009 and when G-Dragon unleased "The Leaders" later in 2009, he just had to do it.

2. MAMAMOO: Mr. Ambiguous
Although this isn't the official song, they replaced the second verse with a section that refers to a lot of other KPOP songs varying with each performance.

References include: SISTAR, Big Bang, IU, GDYB, AOA, EXID, and much more.
3. 2NE1: Falling in Love
In a very CL fashion, she references 2NE1's own songs in "Falling in Love."

The lyrics are:

"Yeah in the club, It's getting ugly, I don't care Can't nobody stop the fire"

That references previous 2NE1 songs like "Fire," "Ugly," "I Don't Care," and "Can't Nobody."
4. AOA: Chocolate
AOA too sneaks in little references of their other songs such as "Like a Cat," "Confused," "Puss," "Miniskirt," and "Short Hair."

In their song, "Chocolate," they referenced lyrics from those songs.
5. Epik High: Born Hater
The first lyrics Tablo raps is:

"I'm a born hater, Dali, Van, Picasso?"

In a nod to their friend, Beenzino who has a song called "Dali, Van, Picasso." True friendship or nah?

6. EXID: Ah Yeah
In just a mere moment, "Ah Yeah" makes a small nod towards their other pop exciting song "Up and Down" in the hip dance.
In a cute nod towards their noonas. BTOB references 4minute's "Hot Issue" in the following lyrics.

"meoributeo balggeutkkaji Hot (From Head to Toe Hot)"
8. Seungri: V.V.I.P.
The Maknae of all Maknaes, Seungri uses "V.V.I.P" to mention "Strong Baby" and "Sexy Back"

"strong babyro sexyback."
9. Big Bang: Fxxk It
As a nod towards their newest YG Family members, Blackpink, Big Bang may have slipped in a mention in their song "Fxxk It" in G-Dragon's rap.

"Nan ssikssikhage mareul georeo neon jeogi Sisihan yeojawaneun dalli tiktik georyeo Chikchikhadeon bunwigie han julgi bicc"

That sounds similar to Jennie's rap in Blackpink's Whistle.
10. SHINee: Spoiler
In case you didn't know, SHINee's "Spoiler" starts off exactly the same as "Sherlock" and "Clue." This song also references song names from the rest of the album as well as other SHINee songs.
