I love the Japanese artist Aimer and will always be excited for new music

-Tablo Podcast

Tablo from Epik High has been hinting towards doing a podcast since he was on Eric Nam’s and not it looks likes it’s coming soon.

-One Piece

It’s been announced that the manga, One Piece, will be adapted into a live action drama for Western audiences and written by Marvel’s Matt Owen.

-KBS Program Cut

Because of a deficit, KBS plans to remove some of their long running programs, which could include my beloved Drama Specials. They suggested also reducing drama lengths down to 50 minutes, which is much needed anyways. Rarely dramas need that length.

-Weathering With You

The Japanese animated film, Weathering With You, premiered last week and now it’s headed to Tronto’s International Film Festival

-MTV Music Categories

Good article on the look at the way MTV categorizes their categories, specifically for International music that is popular and how it separates them.

-JYP Distribution

I missed this when it first came out in March, but JYP signed a deal with The Orchard for their artist music to be sold in stores here in America. I have a pretty sizable 2PM collection, but it’s still not their entire discography. Making it easier for me to have access to it won’t help my wallet.

-Hotel Del Luna Filming Locations

This article shows some of the filming locations for Hotel Del Luna. The Seoul Book Bogo is now on the top of my list if I ever visit Seoul (I didn’t know it was a real spot. Book lovers paradise!)

-Park Seo Joon YouTube

Honestly, at this point I should just have a YouTube corner.


-Really loving Yuki Akira’s newest song, Lone Wolf

-JeA (Brown Eyed Girls) was in this adorable video where she was paired with kids to talk about her career (which most of them weren’t alive for).

-Monsta X did a Jenga Truth or Dare. It’s great

-So Jung’s song for the Love Affairs in the Afternoon is out

-EXO-SC’s Closer to You is a pretty good song

-Dreamcatcher did a cute video where they cover popular boy band dances

-Did we expect Taemin’s Famous to be anything but great?
