  • Miyamoto (2019) (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
    The volatile world of Miyamoto
    July 31, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Oftentimes when TV dramas get a feature film sequel, the film starts out with some kind of recap or introductory context for viewers who don't know or don't remember the events of the TV drama. Mariko Tetsuya's Miyamoto does no such favors for its audience. Based on Arai Hideki's 90s seinen manga about a stationery salesman, the film plops audiences right into the midst of the eponymous hero's seemingly mundane yet overwhelmingly messy life. A roughed-up-looking Miyamoto (Ikematsu Sosuke, at his jittery best) is going through the ritual of visiting the parents to inform them of his planned marriage with girlfriend Yasuko (Aoi Yu), who is expecting. This disorienting feeling of being dropped... [read more]
  • Tousaku  (Normal Edition) (Japan Version)
    The Man Who Steals Music
    July 31, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Awarded Best New Artist at the 34th Gold Disc Awards, Yorushika was one of last year's greatest music discoveries. The duo formed by producer n-buna and vocalist suis released two excellent albums in 2019, That's Why I Gave Up on Music and Elma, that told an interconnected story. This year, they're back with a new musical story in Tousaku. Most musicians would probably stay far away from the word Plagiarism, but Yorushika made it the title and theme of their third full album. Plagiarism's main character is a "man who steals music." Using music to tell a story of the emotional tempest and destructive impulses of its main character, the album also explores and challenges what creating and... [read more]

    Sparrow

    Li Rong Hao (Singer)
    Small but strong, fragile but tenacious
    July 31, 2020 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    If I have to choose ten best C-pop albums of the past decade, Li Ronghao's 2018 hit Ear would definitely be on my list. After a two-year wait, the top Chinese singer-songwriter finally blesses our ears with another self-written, self-produced, self-arranged and self-mixed record Sparrow! Sparrow revolves around the different relationships and emotions we encounter in everyday life, accompanied by Li's signature band-sound music. "Sparrow" (Track 1) caught my ear with just the first verse. The title single uses a "sparrow" to reflect on humanity – being "small but strong, fragile but tenacious" while living in this busy, ever-changing world. When listening to this song, I really get the... [read more]
  • SF9 Mini Album Vol. 8 - 9loryUS (Random Version)
    Dancing in the Summer Breeze
    July 30, 2020 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    Miss those days when digital music charts were full of K-pop summer anthems ? This summer, we have SF9 who comes back with a bright, fresh yet chic style in 9loryUS! "The summer fragrance is making me dance! Bang Bang Bang! Let's giddy up, giddy up, giddy up now!" Composed by FNC's founder Han Sung Ho and RBW's Kim Do Hoon, "Summer Breeze" (Track 1) gives off summer energy in a mix of house beats and synth sounds accompanied by acoustic guitar melody. Han Sung Ho is also the main lyricist of the song along with N.Flying's Seung Hyub, Young Bin and Zu Ho. This summer bop is catchy, uplifting and addictive. It totally makes me want to dance in the summer breeze! What makes a summer jam isn't... [read more]
  • Secret Zoo (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Korea Version)
    Who needs animals when you have animal suits?
    July 27, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Though director Son Jae Gon has a very short filmography considering his many years in the industry, he definitely has a knack for comedy of the slightly eccentric variety. Departing from the darker mystery elements of his previous My Scary Girl and Villain and Widow, Secret Zoo is a total family-friendly charmer. Though the film may about as substantial as its menagerie of fake animals, you're sure to have a fun time at Secret Zoo. Ahn Jae Hong plays scrappy lawyer Kang Tae Soo who's been doing thankless temp work for a large law firm in hopes of landing himself a full position. The law firm's sketchy president asks him to be the proxy director of a failing zoo that was recently acquired... [read more]

A year after their debut, the boys show their energetic sides with some vivid sounds and styles. Rebooting in a four-member lineup, AB6IX brightens up your mood with their second mini-album Vivid! Jeon Woong, Dong Hyun, Woo Jin and Dae Hwi become your K-pop sweethearts in their upbeat title track "The Answer" (Track 3)!

Written By YumCha! Editorial Team
K-pop is known for boy bands and girl groups, but co-ed groups have started to gain recognition again as well with the arrival of KARD, the rise of project group SSAK3, and the recent wave of Cool remakes. While many co-ed groups made a name for themselves from debut, not all of them are still active in the industry. Expand your K-pop horizons with ten of the most notable mixed-gender groups of the past three decades! 1. Roo'Ra One of the biggest acts of the 90s, Roo'Ra debuted in 1994 with one female member (Kim Ji Hyun) and three male members (Go Young Wook, Shin Jung Hwan and leader Lee Sang Min).
