  • Fly Me to the Saitama (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition)  (Japan Version)
    Saitama forever!
    March 18, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Somehow, this happened: Fly Me to the Saitama won Best Director and Best Screenplay at the 43rd Japan Academy Prize. Some may want to point out that last year was a particularly weak year for Japanese cinema, and that this is the kind of stuff that happens when Kore-eda Hirokazu uses his one-film-a-year output on a French co-production instead of a Japanese film that everyone can safely award. But I'd like to think that it's all part of the Saitama Liberation Front's master plan to spread the influence of the suburban prefecture. Directed by Takeuchi Hideki, Fly Me to the Saitama is the kind of crazy Japanese film that you would show your friends to perpetuate the stereotype of Japanese... [read more]
  • KARD Mini Album Vol. 4 - RED MOON
    The rise of KARD
    February 28, 2020 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    As one of the only co-ed idol groups in Korea, KARD hit the K-pop world in 2016 with their successful pre-debut trilogy, which included well-known hits like Oh NaNa and Don't Recall. Unfortunately, their official debut release didn't live up to the hype. Due to the lack of promotions, their popularity hasn't been as high as their pre-debut era. Nonetheless, KARD is still one of the most underrated acts in K-pop. Who doesn't love a group with such a unique concept and catchy music? Not to mention the fact that all four members are capable of singing, dancing and rapping. For their recent Red Moon comeback, KARD slays with their trendy and stylish music, live singing, powerful dancing and... [read more]
  • Aozora (Japan Version)
    Bright yet blue
    February 28, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Just based on the title and visuals of aiko's single Aozora, one would probably expect it to be a bright and sunny song fitting of its lovely "Blue Sky." The song's melody, as well, is light in rhythm and tone with a soothingly refreshing arrangement that creates a chipper feeling. However, the singer-songwriter's lyrics tell a different story about looking back with mixed feelings on a love that has ended – that blue sky is distorted and invisible before teary, unfocused eyes. Rather than being bright and blue, Aozora is bright yet blue. The single's new B-side, Koibito Doshi ni (Track 3), is also a light-sounding confection of love and worries, but it reaches a more rose-tinted... [read more]
  • Loona Mini Album Vol. 2 - # (Limited A Version)
    Loona's butterfly effect
    February 26, 2020 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    The worldview and captivating concept story behind every Loona release has been one of the most fun things about stanning them, but their catchy songs also can't be overlooked. They amaze with their bad girl energy in their latest album # and title track So What (Track 2). The Loona girls bring a "girl crush" style for the first time in the urban dance number So What, which encourages us to step out of the box and break boundaries ("Speaking sharply, so what? / Acting cold, so what? / Going fearless, so what?"). The hook of "I'm so bad! I'm so bad!" is such a remarkable start for the song, and it keeps repeating throughout the tune so that you just can't get it out of your head! From the... [read more]
  • Another Child (DVD) (Korea Version)
    Kim Yoon Seok's directorial debut
    February 19, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Great actors don't necessarily make great directors and screenwriters. Kim Yoon Seok, however, proves to be just as adept behind the camera with his directorial debut Another Child. The award-winning actor takes a supporting role in the film as the feckless, mild-mannered Dae Won who brings trouble to two families. Though seemingly happily married to Young Joo (Yeom Jung Ah), he is carrying on an affair with Mi Hee (Kim So Jin), who is also the mother of his teenage daughter's classmate. His daughter Joo Ri (Kim Hye Jun) discovers the affair and confronts Yoon Ah (Park Se Jin) in school about their parents' infidelity. The cat is soon out of the bag, and it turns out Mi Hee is even pregnant... [read more]
  • Sechskies The 1st Mini Album - ALL FOR YOU (Random Version)
    The real old-school vibes
    February 6, 2020 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    After reuniting in 2016, top first-generation idol group Sechskies has been showing the world a blend of trendy K-pop beats with familiar retro sounds that makes their songs very relatable. The respected idol group kicks off the new year with a new mini-album in a new lineup. Now a four-member group, each Sechskies member has taken up more vocal parts in general. Following "Three Words," "Be Well" and "Sad Song," the group collaborates with Future Bounce again for their first ever mini-album. The team co-produced all five tracks on All For You. Composed by Future Bounce and Andrew Choi (EXO's Lucky One), All For You (Track 1) delivers an R&B melody with a touch of 90s retro sounds. Starting... [read more]

The K-Drama World of Female Screenwriters
Written By YumCha! Editorial Team
It's probably no surprise that women make up the core audience of Korean TV dramas. But did you know that women are also the main writers of Korean dramas? Name any K-Drama off the top of your head, and chances are high that it was written by a woman. Close to 90% of TV screenwriters in Korea are female, a staggering figure considering the entertainment world tends to be dominated by men behind the scenes. What's more, screenwriters occupy an especially important role for Korean dramas, often having greater name recognition and sway than directors. In honor of Women's History Month, we've spotlighted 12 female screenwriters, among many more, who are the movers, shakers and creative minds... [read more]
