Not a lot of links this past week, but a ton of great music was released!
Dramas starting this week that I’m interested in: Angel’s Last Mission Love (22)
Music I’ll be checking out: GOT7, Kyuhyun (20), Hyolyn (23)
Lee Dong Wook is confirmed for the upcoming drama, with Im Siwan. The teaser looks amazing.
The Cartoon Network show, We Bare Bears, announced an appearance of the group Monsta X and it’s just as adorable as expected, and surprisingly spot on. The creators have done the fans right.
Chungha confirmed a June comeback. I love her voice, and her music so I’m excited to see what she puts out.
Disney made a deal with Comcast to take over Hulu. I don’t know much about what Hulu has in the Asian entertainment market, but I do know that I had seen previous articles about the second season of the jdrama Criminologist Himura and Mystery Writer Arisugawa which was attached to Hulu. Maybe they are gearing up as a competitor to the upcoming AT&T-Warner Bros streaming service?
Taec was discharged from the military this week, and Chansung came to see him and they are just adorable. He’s also already set up fan meetings, and started work with his new agency, 51K.
The YouTube series, React, is always pretty good but they’ve started doing videos where they get the subject of the video to react to the reactors. This time, it was the jpop group Perfume, and it’s great.
Kyuhyun (Super Junior) officially releases music this week, but this past week released this adorable video that has all his favorite things. I’ve missed his voice since he’s been in the military.
Always on the hunt for new to me music, this song by Wetter is great:
Ladies Code’s comeback song is fantastic and I love every second of it. The part in the MV where they are sitting in the theater watching a clip of So Wonderful? Beautiful and perfect.
And because I can’t get enough of how great it is, here’s their first official comeback stage:
Soyou also came out with a new song with Ovan. I love her voice, and the music video is the perfect song for a rainy day.
Seriously, it was the week of awesome female comebacks, EXID was no exception:
And to round out the week of girl groups, Bom, Dara, CL, and Minzy of 2NE1 got together to celebrate their 10th anniversary and live streamed. I miss them so much, and didn’t expect to hear them say “What’s up we 2NE1” again.
