[Friday Favorites] Week 7 of All K-Pop and Drama Favorites
So, it’s been a few weeks since I’ve done one of these. Life gets a little cray sometimes. I actually have many more favorites lately than what I’m listing here, but I had to narrow it down a bit. Shout out to iKON for really stepping up my playlist this month!
1. “Monster” by Henry
I’ve been a fan of Henry for quite a while, and he did not disappoint with this comeback. “Monster” is an emotional song that has a soft R&B feel to it. These are the slower/ballad type songs that I really enjoy and keep on repeat.
2. iKON’s “Love Scenario” and Basically Their Entire New Album
I can’t say enough great things about iKON’s latest comeback. There is something great about every single song on this album, and it does so well showcasing each of the member’s individual talents. “Love Scenario” is easily my favorite song by the YG group now, and the music charts seem to agree. Some other stand out songs from the album are B.I.’s solo “One and Only”, “Don’t Forget”. and “Just Go”.
3. “Forget About Tomorrow” by Jay Park and Yultron
I mean it’s Jay Park. He’s great at everything. “Forget About Tomorrow” is no different. I’ll be a fan of any song/album Jay releases.
4. Weki Meki’s New Single and MV “La La La”
Weki Meki is quickly becoming one of my favorite girl groups. I like that they are more edgy/hip-hop than cutesy, and their dances have great choreography.
5. NCT U Comeback with “Boss”
Taeyong is still my favorite member of NCT. His dancing is so sharp and precise and he has the rapping to go along with it. I love the aesthetic of this video too.
6. “Hwayugi”/”A Korean Odyssey” Soundtrack
If you haven’t started watching “A Korean Odyssey”, I recommend you start ASAP. Lee Seung Gi and Cha Seung Won are perfection in this drama. And the soundtrack has been on point throughout the entire show. My personal favorite is “When I Saw You” by BUMKEY.
7. “Sketch” Casts Rain to Play Leading Role
JTBC has a summer drama coming up titled “Sketch” taking place in the violent crimes department. And who better to play the top investigator than Rain? I’m super excited to see Rain back in a drama, and in an action role is even better!
8. Joo Ji Hoon and Ha Ji Won Offered Roles in “Prometheus: War of Fire”
I love both of these actors and this drama would be great for both of them. “Prometheus” is about agents from multiple countries on the search for three North Korean scientists that are privy to information about their nuclear system. This drama has said to be given quite a large blockbuster budget, and the spy story line isn’t very common in my personal drama lineup. However, the plot is definitely catching my attention.
9. Lee Joon Gi Offered Role in “Lawless Lawyer”
Is there anyone that dislikes Lee Joon Gi? Because I’m almost positive there isn’t. While he hasn’t accepted yet, he’s been offered the role of gangster turned lawyer in tvN’s “Lawless Lawyer”. If he accepts, I don’t care about the rest. I will watch!
10. Seo Kang Joon Will Be Starring in “Something About Us”
Seo Kang Joon is a name appearing more and more nowadays. And I’m not mad about it! Ever since “Cheese In The Trap”, I wanted to see him in more and more roles that do him justice (I wasn’t happy with the ending of “Cheese In The Trap”). “Something About Us” will be a remake of a very popular web-toon about a sweet campus romance. I’m very curious to see who they cast opposite of him!
