Weekly Roundup // 5-12-19


Happy Mother’s day!


Dramas starting this week that I’m interested in: Absolute Boyfriend, Angel’s Last Mission: Love (15)

Music I’ll be checking out: EXID, Winner (15), Ladies Code (16), Davichi (17)


-How Netflix is Reshaping South Korean Entertainment

Interesting article on how Netflix is continuing to pursue content coming from South Korea, but begs the question as to how it will effect us as already long time viewers of the content.

-Remake of “The Gangster, the Cop, the Devil

Ma Dong Seok is having a pretty good year: the Hollywood remake has confirmed he will be reprising his role.

-Hyolyn’s New Single

Keeping up the tradition of being a queen of summer bops, Hyolyn has a new single coming out towards the end of the month and I can not wait.

-Lee Min Ho Comeback

I have been waiting to see what Lee Min Ho would pick up since he left the military, and he’s finally settled on a project. He’ll be working with writer Kim Eun Sook on her new drama: ““The King: The Eternal Monarch”. They last worked together on “The Heirs”.

-“Angel’s Last Mission: Love” Poster

I can’t get over how gorgeous the posters are for this drama.

-Military News

Super Junior’s Kyuhyun is finally back and 2PM’s Taecyeon has days left. Xiumin is the first member of EXO to enlist, and has started his training.

-Lay at Met Gala

Lay attended the event in a really awesome UFO blazer by Valentino.

-Puppy Adoption Variety Show

Is there any question Jessie would not be watching this show?

-EXID Japan

Last week I talked about EXID’s Hani and Jeonghwa leaving their company, but it looks like we’ll have at least one more year with the group in whole, as their Japan contract doesn’t expire until 2020.

-Won Jin Ah in “Melt Me”

I very much like Won Jin Ah’s acting, and while I’m not super interested in the drama, I think this would be a good project to pick up considering Ji Chang Wook is already confirmed. I guess this will be officially added to my “Planning to Watch” list.

-"Love Affairs in the Afternoon”

We got confirmation that “Love Affairs in the Afternoon” will be airing July 5th. I enjoy Lee Sang Yeob,. I wish I had finished the Japanese version of the drama before the DramaFever demise.

-Kang Daniel

After a legal battle, it looks like Kang Daniel (Wanna One) has finally gotten his contract with LM canceled. Judging by how LM has handled things, this probably won’t be the end of the legal battle, but it seems like this is headed in the right direction.


Jun.K and Wooyoung are doing fine in the military.

I’m not going to lie to you, I really don’t think I’ll watch this movie, but here’s an nice interview about Henry’s role in “A Dog’s Journey” (looks like leaving SM was really good for him)

Epik High completed their North American tour and put out short clips in each city. Here they are in one glorious video:

The trailer for the movie “The Farewell” looks amazing.

Eric Nam’s new MV:

And might as well end with the MV for Nichhyun’s Lucky Charm in honor of his successful concert this past weekend.
