  1. Highlight Mini Album Vol. 3 - The Blowing (Random Version) Highlight Mini Album Vol. 3 - The Blowing (Random Version) Highlight
    We're still here
    May 14, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    In their two-year group hiatus, Highlight fulfilled their military service, and unfortunately went through yet another lineup change. Du Jun, Yo Seop, Gi Kwang and Dong Woon embark on a new journey, hand in hand, unfolding Highlight's new chapter with their third mini-album The Blowing. Highlight asks fans to count on them with the heartfelt and assuring line "I'm still here, it's not the end" in the title track. Co-penned by Gi Kwang, Not The End (Track 1) is a synthpop plug that delivers hope with the message of "winter has passed, spring has arrived, and I'm still here as always." Now without a main rapper, the group is focusing more on vocal parts, and they still show improvements every... [read more]

    A little something called family
    April 30, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    With the family drama A Love for Dilemma currently trending in China, now seems like a good time to revisit the acclaimed 2019 series that came before it, A Little Reunion. A Love for Dilemma, A Little Reunion and 2016's A Love for Separation are all family stories based on novels by Lu Yingong. All three are worthwhile watches, but A Little Reunion is the highest-rated on Douban for good reason. A Little Reunion is centered around three families during a crucial period: the final year of high school when students prepare for the gaokao, China's all-important national college entrance exam. A Love for Separation's Huang Lei and Hai Qing return as parental figures of free-spirited,... [read more]
  3. Red Velvet: Wendy Mini Album Vol. 1 - Like Water (Case Version) Red Velvet: Wendy Mini Album Vol. 1 - Like Water (Case Version) Wendy (Red Velvet)
    Wendy's beautiful blues
    April 30, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    After seven years of wait, Red Velvet's Wendy finally gifts us her long-awaited first solo mini-album Like Water! Having gone through hardships in her yearlong hiatus, Wendy comes back in a stronger self, and with a stronger voice, to welcome a new chapter of her life. Wendy shows off her vocal color and skills all at once in the mellow but powerful main title track Like Water (Track 2). Produced by Coach & Sendo, the acoustic pop ballad describes a love that is soft, healing and important Like Water: "My love is like water, filling up your painful spots, wrapping around your wounds, and hugging you tightly, making you stand up again." We're used to hearing Wendy sing high notes in Red... [read more]
  4. DOWN TOWN / Ganbarenaiyo [Type A] (SINGLE+DVD) (First Press Limited Edition) (Japan Version) DOWN TOWN / Ganbarenaiyo [Type A] (SINGLE+DVD) (First Press Limited Edition) (Japan Version) Juice=Juice
    Fun update of a city pop classic
    April 29, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Juice=Juice has often sounded like a girl group from a different era, because their music digs very squarely into the standard idol J-pop sound, even in comparison to other Hello! Project groups. Last year, they went deliberately old school with the single Pop Music, which playfully referenced kayo pop music of yesteryear. Now they bring a cover of Sugar Babe's 1975 city pop classic DOWN TOWN for their first single of the year. City pop has seen a revival of late. Whether it's old songs going viral or younger artists reinterpreting the genre, the nostalgic sound has found a new audience, and not just in Japan. As the OG of all city pop, Sugar Babe's DOWN TOWN has been covered many times... [read more]
  5. Pentagon Mini Album Vol. 11 - LOVE or TAKE (Mild Version) Pentagon Mini Album Vol. 11 - LOVE or TAKE (Mild Version) Pentagon
    Do or Not? Just do it yo!
    April 13, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    After going wild and crazy for love with Dr. BeBe and Daisy last year, Pentagon brings back their signature gleeful and bouncy music in their latest release! Eight manhwa boys pop up and melt your heart with romantic songs in LOVE or TAKE. The physical album is well designed in a manhwa concept complete with comic book sleeves, making it especially worth collecting.

    The cherry on top
    March 31, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    There is no shortage of live-action BL dramas lately, but the winner of most amusing title has to go to Cherry Magic! Thirty Years of Virginity Can Make You a Wizard?! Just for that curious title alone, I had to watch this 2020 TV Tokyo series based on Toyota Yuu's same-titled manga. As signaled in the title, urban legend says that 30 years of virginity will bestow one with "magic." The magical power that protagonist Adachi Kiyoshi (Akaso Eiji) reluctantly gains on his 30th birthday is mind reading. The timid, everyday office worker can suddenly read the minds of anyone he touches, but this special power is bothersome more than anything for him. One day, while squeezed into a packed...

  8. Weeekly Mini Album Vol. 3 - We play (Random Version) Weeekly Mini Album Vol. 3 - We play (Random Version) Weeekly
    It's Spring Time!
    March 31, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    While Weeekly may not be a huge name as of yet, they in fact swept five newcomer awards last year at different year-end ceremonies. One of the few rookies to not go for the trendy "girl crush" style in their debut, the group has continued with their youthful and lively "high-teen" concept in their third mini-album We play. Following Tag Me (@Me) and Zig Zag, Weeekly pursues their overwhelming teen energy and passion again in this album's title track After School (Track 3). Produced by Denzil Remedios and Ryan Jhun, the cheery pop number mixed with reggae and trap beats captures the joy of students enjoying their free time after school: "We're on our skateboards. Stamping our feet like we're... [read more]
  9. ONF Vol. 1 - ONF:MY NAME (Random Version) ONF Vol. 1 - ONF:MY NAME (Random Version) ONF
    Beautiful and blossoming
    March 31, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    After five mini-album releases, ONF finally drops their ambitious and conceptual first full-length album. The boys take us along on their youthful journey to search for freedom in the future through their 11-track album ONF: My Name. ONF first lifts us up with the funky house jam Beautiful Beautiful (Track 1). Again produced by Hwang Hyun, Beautiful Beautiful is an encouraging, upbeat self-love anthem with a retro spin, performed with lyrics that are plainly straightforward: "It's all about the frame people made up / Never gonna give in I'm a break it / Courage I set to be hated my man / Damagin' me but it makin' me strong / Taking off for today baby, God, bless me." The song may feel odd... [read more]

    Zombies in parliament
    March 31, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    The zombie genre gets a zany, blood-spurting entry in the Taiwan horror action comedy Get the Hell Out. If you've ever thought politicians are just blood-sucking creatures who prey on the people, then Wang I Fan's debut feature is here to validate your suspicions with unsubtle satire and lots of blood. Bruce Hung plays Wang You Wei, who is on security detail at the Legislative Yuan, Taiwan's parliament, for his alternative military service. He has a crush on short-tempered legislator Hsiung Ying Ying (Megan Lai), who became a politician to block the construction of a foreign chemical plant in her hometown. Rumors are that the chemicals are linked to a new rabies virus. After Hsiung is... [read more]

    A thrilling, captivating and emotional ride
    March 1, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    365: Repeat the Year was one of the best and most underrated Korean drama series of last year (of course, we selected it as one of the Best Korean Dramas of 2020!). A mind-blowing and intriguing mystery, great actors, thrills and chills, plot-twisting cliffhangers – it's got everything to make it a perfect time-travel suspense thriller. At only 12 episodes, the novel-turned-drama keeps it short while delivering a strong and complete story. Lee Joon Hyuk takes the role of righteous police detective Hyung Joo who wants to save his late work partner. Nam Ji Hyun plays webtoon artist Ga Hyun who wishes to have the ability to walk again. The two, along with eight other people from different... [read more]

    After the Zombie Apocalypse
    February 28, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    It seems like there have been more Korean zombie productions than you can shake a stick at the last few years, and the film that started the trend was, of course, Yeon Sang Ho's 2016 blockbuster Train to Busan. Arriving four years later, Peninsula is a sequel set four years after the events of Train to Busan. Like Seoul Station, this film tells another side of the zombie story with different characters. We start out learning that the cautious hope afforded at the end of Train to Busan was for naught, because South Korea was lost in a day and the Korean peninsula has been quarantined by the rest of world. Kang Dong Won plays former soldier Jung Seok who escaped to Hong Kong on one of the... [read more]
  13. Dramatic ni Kanpai  (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Dramatic ni Kanpai (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Yamamoto Sayaka
    From Idol to Singer-Songwriter
    February 27, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    I had high hopes for Yamamoto Sayaka when she started her post-NMB career, because she's been one of the few 48 graduates to have both the established popularity and the legitimate musical and vocal talents to make it as a solo artist. She hasn't disappointed. In the past two years, Sayaka has built a credible and consistent body of work that solidifies her transition from idol to singer-songwriter. Like with her past singles, all three tracks on her latest Dramatic ni Kanpai single are self-written and self-composed. While characteristic of Sayaka's style of medium-tempo ballads and rock, Dramatic ni Kanpai ("Dramatically Toast") also stands out from her past singles with its carefree vibe... [read more]
  14. BAE173 Mini Album Vol. 1 - INTERSECTION : SPARK BAE173 Mini Album Vol. 1 - INTERSECTION : SPARK BAE173
    Sparking joy with teen energy
    February 26, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    We all need something lively to cheer us up while we're trapped at home every day. Enter PocketDol Studio's (formerly known as MBK Entertainment) fresh-faced new boy group BAE173, whose nine member lineup includes X1's Han Gyul and Do Hyon. Unlike many other groups, BAE173 pursues a bubbly and high-spirited style that makes them stand out from the crowd! The rookie group collaborates with well-known K-pop producer team GALACTIKA* for all the tracks on their first mini-album Intersection: Spark. The prelude With Me (Track 1) starts the record off with a youthful and bright ambience and lyrics that share their hopes: "I'll never let you down, yeah. You just have to look at me…. I want you to... [read more]

    The beginning of the Bumilangit Cinematic Universe
    January 31, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    From The Raid series to the horror films Satan's Slaves and Impetigore, the international profile of Indonesian cinema has been on the up in recent years. As the director of those latter two horror hits, Joko Anwar is a key name in the rise of Indonesian genre films. His 2019 feature Gundala takes on that most commercially alluring and technically challenging of genres: comic book superhero. Gundala is the ambitious first film of the Bumilangit Cinematic Universe, Indonesia's answer to the MCU and DCEU. Created by Hasmi, the lightning-wielding Gundala made his first appearance in 1969, and has remained one of the country's most popular and classic comic characters. Typical of the first...

    Burning, Sparkling and Blooming
    January 28, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    After their successful summer comeback with DUMDi DUMDi, (G)I-DLE geared back up in bold and fierce fashion for their fourth mini-album I burn. (G)I-DLE sets the bar high with the stunning intro HANN (Alone in Winter) (Track 1), which sets the mysterious wintry aura of the album. This theme is also meant to connect to their 2018 single HANN. Landing at #1 on various music charts, HWAA (Track 2) takes the Chinese characters of "fire" and "flower" as motifs to project the pain of breakup. So Yeon creates another masterpiece that blends Moombahton-based pop dance with traditional East Asian music and sentiments. Though it isn't as catchy as their previous title tracks, HWAA is the best... [read more]

    18 Again, Love Again
    January 28, 2021 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
    JTBC's 18 Again is arguably one of the best yet underrated Korean drama series of 2020. It conveys life lessons on family, love and friendship through a fantasy story about Dae Young (Yoon Sang Hyun), who returns to the body of his 18-year-old self (Lee Do Hyun) just before his wife Da Jung (Kim Ha Neul) files for divorce with him. Even though it's been almost three months since the finale, I'm still left with lingering feelings whenever I listen to the drama's original soundtrack. Overall, 18 Again is a very heartwarming and comedic drama, but it occasionally includes flashbacks that make our hearts wrench. Three songs – So You's "The Only One" (Track 1), So Hyang's Hello (Track 2) and Sol... [read more]

    High school hoops and hopes
    January 27, 2021 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    High school basketball is a pretty big deal in Taiwan. While the island's professional leagues have struggled in recent years to maintain attendance and a sustainable business model, the High School Basketball League (HBL) has ballooned in popularity over the past decade. Bolstered by government support, big-name brand sponsorship and broadcast deals, the HBL commands a considerable following and boasts way higher attendance than the beleaguered SBL. HBL's Division 1 tournament is Taiwan's answer to March Madness, with final games held in packed stadiums. It's the HBL championship tournament that provides the crucial backdrop for Chang Jung Chi's 2019 youth film We Are Champions. The... [read more]

    The joy of watching Joy of Life
    December 31, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    One of the dramas I'm most looking forward to in 2021 is the second season of Joy of Life. The first season that aired in 2019 was a big hit in China and made our year-end picks, thanks to its unique mix of wuxia, suspense, fantasy and pure wit. Based on Mao Ni's novel Qing Yu Nian, the period series stars Zhang Ruoyun as silver-tongued swordsman Fan Xian, who lives in ancient times but has modern-day knowledge. His mysterious origin links back to his even more mysterious mother, who came from an unknown place and left behind a great legacy of innovation and larger-than-life legends. Summoned to the capital by his father and the Emperor (Chen Daoming), Fan Xian searches for his origins and... [read more]

    A condensed K-Drama romance
    December 30, 2020 Picked By Sanwei See all this editor's picks
    Apparently, Are We In Love? was selected as one of Korea's worst films of 2020 in Sports Kyunghyang's "Raspberry Film Festival" survey of 25 reporters who cover domestic films. Clearly, these reporters don't know how to appreciate the joy of getting an entire K-Drama romance in condensed feature-length form. Are We In Love? puts all the classic elements of a Korean romance series into a short and sweet movie. We have two likable television stars, Kim So Eun and Sung Hoon, playing typical romcom protagonists – bumbling baker So Jung, who's totally cute yet hopelessly single, and cafe owner Seung Jae, who seems cold and curt but is actually a big softie. Of course, these two are meant for... [read more]
