Artist of the Week | JENYER(전지윤)

Do you remember 4Minute? It wasn’t that long ago that they were a big-time girl group taking over the world. And then the news hit that rocked the kpop world… 4Minute was disbanding. Just like all the other fans of the popular group, I was heartbroken. But the bittersweet moment led to a beautiful revelation… they could go solo. And what do you know… Jeon Ji-yoon is the next member to officially do so!

Introducing JENYER(전지윤)! At the moment I can’t exactly do a single playlist of just her music because of course I got super excited as soon as I saw her debut video, so you can be sure that I will definitely do an update to this post as soon as she releases more music!

Check out her new single below!

Wednesday Kpop Update | CL First, Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart + WINNER Comeback Postponed + The East Light, New Boy Band

This week in kpop has been a bittersweet week for YG. CL has officially made kpop history by becoming the first Korean female solo artist to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 list! This is a huge deal. This list not only shows number of record sales and proof of how much airplay you can potentially get on radio, but it’s also a popularity contest. Only the popular songs make it to this list and CL, you have officially done it!

The song “Lifted” debuted at #94 on the charts. And even though many people will have a lot to say about that, I will say this, there are millions of songs that won’t even get that high on the charts! Congrats CL! Check out her performance on the late night show, The Late Late Show with James Corden.


In not so great YG news, WINNER’s comeback has been officially postponed indefinitely. I was one of the ones speculating that the “Who’s Next?” teaser was a hint at their potential comeback but now, I’m not so sure. Apparently, Taehyun is not doing well at all and hasn’t been for quite some time.

“On October 12th, YG Entertainment confirmed the delay in WINNER’s anticipated return as they updated fans about Taehyun’s condition. According to the agency, they were aware of his mental health condition during his trainee days. However, the singer and actor was unable to cope these last few months.”

It seems the stress of touring domestically and internationally has begun to take a toll on Taehyun. So while he recovers, WINNER will be put to the side for now.

I truly hope he gets better soon!


And finally…  Have you heard of The East Light? Yes? No? Maybe? Well if you haven’t or you’re unsure, you most certainly will!

“The East Light’s agency Media Line announced, “The average age of The East Line is fifteen years old. They are a dance group with the talents to open a new paradigm in the idol market. Although their age may be young, their skills are not.”

I definitely can’t wait to hear their music. I have my theories of what they’ll sound like but I’ll wait until it’s official!


Wednesday Kpop Update | EXO First Sub-Unit + YG Teasing for October Release, “Who’s Next? + Sehun Ruffles Feathers with SNS Update

Alright so the world of kpop is getting increasingly busy as the holiday season rolls around. New comeback announcement and of course a lot of surprises! Beginning with EXO!

For the first time, EXO is getting ready to debut their very own sub-unit! That’s right ladies and gents! This is happening! And who will be the members? None other than the trio, Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin. This is not coming as a huge surprise to fans. They were given a sample of what this sub-unit would look like during the EXO concert with the mini-series videos, “Reservoir Idols”.

This is definitely going to be exciting!


YG knows how to get the conversation going with many people speculating who this could potentially be already! We only have two more days to find out! I have a few theories of my own that I’ll keep to myself. For now, we know for a fact it’s not BIGBANG! BIGBANG’s comeback is scheduled for December so who else could it be?


And finally, with all the good news surrounding EXO right now, of course one thing had to upset people. It’s safe to say that it wasn’t meant with bad intentions but fans are up in arms anyway.

EXO’s Sehun posted a picture to instagram and commented, “Nice weather” with a sun emoji. It wasn’t long before fans saw this and immediately flagged him for being insensitive to the typhoon currently affecting Busan, Ulsan, and Jeju Islands.

He later deleted the post and said:

“The weather over here was nice, so I just posted it. I knew what was happening after I saw the news. I guess the southland is still getting hit with a serious typhoon. I hope there won’t be a lot of damages.”

Let’s try to be more understanding of each other! It’s been so peaceful lately!


Artist of the Week | 정진우 (Jung Jinwoo) [P.odd of AlphaDict]

I don’t normally get an opportunity to repost artist’s playlists but I’m doing it today. This artist is from AlphaDict and is commonly known as P.odd, however I was introduced to him today as simply 정진우 (Jung Jinwoo) with is song, “B Side U“. Jung’s solo EP, “In My Room” featuring the single is available on iTunes here. I’m a new fan and his music is really good!
