With the merge of Million Market and SM entertainment, we’re going to see a lot of new artists popping up from SM that don’t have the familiar sound that a lot of kpop fans are used to. However, if you aren’t new to the Korean hip-hop/urban sound, you’ll be really excited about this. (As I am!!)
In October I shared a post about MOON and this week I’m sharing Jiselle 지젤. Just like MOON, Jiselle is an artist that was signed to Million Market and is now under the SM umbrella. I’m so excited that not only are they maintaining their sound but they’re also introducing these artists to a broader audience.
If you followed Produce 101 then you may be already very familiar with this Artist of the Week. 청하 Chung Ha is a former member of the girl group I.O.I which was a product of the show. For those of you who have never heard of it before, basically it was a competition show and the girls that made up I.O.I were selected as the finalists that would be a new kpop girl group in Korea. However, they were disbanded after 1 year.
Since then the members have gone on to do their own separate careers and one such member of that group is 청하 Chung Ha. I really haven’t followed the members as closely but I heard her new song and was immediately looking for her new album. She’s put out solo music in the past too so definitely check out her previous music if you haven’t already.

So I debated on whether to end the year with a new Artist of the Week or to wait and then begin the year with one. I have decided to end the year with an artist I was just introduced to today… Minty!
She debuted in February of this year and is signed to Major7 Company. I personally think she has a very unique sound and vocals.
If you haven’t heard of her before, check out the sample playlist below!
I decided to surprise you guys with an update on the Artist of the Week. While I was away studying and writing papers I was listening to a lot of new music. There was so many times I wanted to share with you guys before I went on that 2-3 week long hiatus…
But, I get to share it now!
The new Artist of the Week is Colde! He’s a singer-songwriter and producer. Half of the Duo Offonoff signed to HIGHGRND. If you’re a fan of DPR you might actually really enjoy his music.
If you haven’t heard Colde’s solo music before, check out some of his music below!
