[Friday Favorites] Week 9 of All K-Pop and Drama Favorites
There hasn’t been as many K-pop releases in the past week, but we are gearing up for some awesome comebacks next week and the following. However, we did have the ever so popular Wanna One release their new track and MV this week. Also, I’m starting to work on a Spotify playlist to share with my current picks, so look forward to that next week! Anyways, here are my Friday Favorites:
1. Wanna One – “BOOMERANG” / 부메랑
Honestly, I haven’t been a huge fan of Wanna One so far. They’re all talented but none of their releases have really caught my attention until “BOOMERANG”.
2. SEVENTEEN Sub-Group BSS (부석순) – “Just Do It” / 거침없이
SEVENTEEN is quickly becoming one of my go-to K-Pop groups and even their first subgroup has managed to have a hit. Great choreography is always the way to my heart LOL.
3. Junho, Jang Hyuk, and Jung Ryeo Won Are Set to Star in “Greasy Melo”
All I needed was to see that Junho was starring in this drama, and I’m in. “Greasy Melo” is about a gangster, Doo Chil Seong (Jang Hyuk), who is running a restaurant after being released from prison. A chef named Seo Poong (Junho) starts working at the restaurant when an heiress comes in to have a bowl of jajangmyun and her life changes. The story line follows these three characters through their life and relationships.
This drama sounds like it will be a mixture of drama, comedy, and romance, all of which are perfect for me! With the cast of this drama, it’s sure to be a hit.
4. YG Address BLACKPINK’S Long Awaited Comeback
Yang Hyun Suk has finally given more information about BLACKPINK’s comeback. They have finished recording for their next album/mini-album, and they will be the third YG artist to make a comeback for 2018. With iKON already releasing an album in January and WINNER releasing new music in April, BLACKPINK will be back soon!
5. K-Drama “Thirty But Seventeen” Give Offers to Yang Se Jong and Shin Hye Sun
Yang Se Jong was the sole reason for me watching the entire drama that was “Temperature of Love”. His acting was incredible and I’m pretty sure every single person fell in love with him. I’ve been impatiently waiting to see what his next role will be. I haven’t found any plot information for the “Thirty But Seventeen” yet, but with the combination talent of him and Shin Hye sun, I don’t really care. I’ll be watching no matter what.
6. MONSTA X Releases “The Connect” Teaser for Title Track “Jealousy”
MONSTA X. Comeback. MV Teaser. ‘Nough said.
