#CoupleTypeOfHangout – Drama Couples Only💞

This post will highlight some of my favourite recent couple shoots from both Korean and Chinese drama leads.

(Please Note: none of these images are mine. I got them from official magazine websites and social media sites.)

First on this list is Kim Rae-won and Lee Da-hee for 1st Look Korea. Both actors recently starred in L.U.C.A: The Beginning – a 2021 science fiction series.

I’ve heard many good things about this drama, and plan to watch it next month. It has only 12 episodes, so that makes for a quick watch. All English subbed episodes of the series are available using this link – L.U.C.A: The Beginning on Viki.


Up next is Li Yitong and Hu Yitian for Harper’s BAZAAR China. They both starred in Go Go Squid 2: Dt. Appledog’s Time.

Another drama on my list to watch next month. It has a total of 38 episodes and is available with English subtitles on both Viki and iQIYI using these links –


Following up is Lee Min-ki and Nana for DAZED Korea. Their drama – Oh My Ladylord (also known as Oh! Master) is currently airing on iQIYI with English Subs. I plan to watch this once it’s done airing.


To close, I have The Rational Life costars Qin Lan and Dylan Wang on InStyle China – April 2021 cover. Their drama is still airing, and the subbing is non-existent since it’s not available on Viki, iQIYI, WeTV or even YouTube. However, I heard that Netflix bought the license for The Rational Life, so I’ll wait and watch all the episodes in one go.

My Pictorial|Poster Faves: A Xu Kai and Angelababy Exclusive

(Please Note: none of these images are mine. I got them from official magazine websites and social media sites.)

In February, Xu Kai graced the cover of Madame Figaro China. The camera angles for this photoshoot are pretty intriguing. I believe the photographer made good use of the shooting set + props to give off some optical illusion –


Following up is Angelababy for L’Officiel China. I love this photoshoot because the backgrounds and editing style makes each picture look like a painted artwork –

Song Of The Week – “How did we” by Huh Gak

Since I’m pretty much settled and up to date now, I’ve decided to continue my weekly song recommendations. “How did we” by Huh Gak has been my staple companion over the past few weeks. It’s a beautiful and relaxing ballad. So I’m sharing this with anyone in need of such a vibe.

I love listening to “How did we” a lot, mainly because of two factors –

  1. The beautiful instrumentalization.
  2. Huh Gak’s superb vocal delivery. 

Another sub reason could be the message of this song. Although it’s mainly about a breakup, it focuses more on letting go of the hurtful memories during a relationship and reminiscing more on your happy moments. 

I remember discovering Huh Gak through a movie soundtrack titled “My Best”, which also features the fabulous vocalist John Park. Ever since hearing that song, I dived deep into his discography. In my opinion, this man is hands done one of the best vocalists in Korea. His emotional delivery is incredible.

If you feel intrigued by this week’s recommendation and want to hear more from Huh Gak, check out his 10th-anniversary album, Hello – 

Catching Up With Recent Comebacks: ROSÉ|WayV|SOYOU|Young K x PARKMOONCHI & Jun. K

(Please note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while checking out each artist.)

On March 12th, ROSÉ (of BLACKPINK) made her solo debut with the single album – R –. Let’s check out the two songs on the album, and since I am fashionably late, I get to watch the music video for the B-side as well.

I love the visuals for this music video. ROSÉ looks stunning in every outfit and sounds equally beautiful. From the look of things, this song is entirely in English. “On The Ground” sounds like something that would get good play on Western radios. It’s a cute song, and I could see myself coming back to it a few times.

This music video also has fantastic visuals. “Gone” is more on a mid-tempo, and I love that the base instrument is a guitar. I enjoy ROSÉ’s vocal colour on this one more because it sounds raw and unfiltered. I will be playing this song a lot more than the title track.


WayV released their 3rd mini-album, Kick Back, on March 10th. I will react to the title track first and follow up with some brief thoughts on the album.  

My babies!!! I’ve been itching to check out their comeback. I can already tell that the choreography is about to be sickening just from the first few seconds. Xiao Jun’s vocals, though! He gets me every single time; I love his voice. The chorus is quite catchy, the vocalists did a beautiful job during that section, + the choreography is fantastic. When this song first started, I wasn’t feeling it that much, but after hearing the chorus and vocal arrangement, I’m all in. Is it my favourite title track from WayV? No, but I LOVE IT.

I enjoyed the vocal quality on this album a lot. The way they layered the vocals, to how well each singer and rapper mixed on each track, every aspect of the production was beautiful. I sense some growth from WayV in this record. Kick Back gets a 10/10 from me and my favourite songs in no particular order are “Action Figure” – “Horizon” and “All For Love” 


Up next is SOYOU. She released a single titled – “Good Night, MY LOVE” on March 11th, so let’s check it out.

The music video is interesting. I love how it starts like a short film before the actual song comes in. Soyou deserves more recognition. She has a great voice, and her MVs come with beautiful visuals, so it’s either her company is slacking on promotions, or people are sleeping on her talent. “Good Night, MY LOVE” is a relaxing ballad, and whoever did the backing vocals on this song served awesomeness on all levels. The way the singer’s voice melts into Soyou’s is impressive to hear. I love everything about this song.


Following up is a collaborative single from Young K (of DAY6) and PARKMOONCHI titled “What A Wonderful Word”.

From the few seconds of the instrumental intro, I can already tell that I will enjoy this song a lot. Young K’s voice is so smooth. The man has a fantastic set of pipes, + he looks good. “What A Wonderful Word” is a chill R&B; I love it. Also, PARKMOONCHI did great on the keyboard. I have to check out more from her.


JUN. K (of 2PM) released his 5th Japanese mini-album, THIS IS NOT A SONG, on March 10th. The title track is “Moon Light, 2003” but since it doesn’t have an official music video, I will go straight into sharing my opinions on the album. Before that, here’s the MV for the pre-release single – “THIS IS NOT A SONG, 1929” –

This album is pure R&B goodness with the combo of smooth and powerful vocals from Jun. K. Also fantastic production on the instrumentals for each track. Therefore it gets a 10/10 from me. Honestly, it’s hard to choose a favourite based on my first listen because every song has something fresh to offer. However, if I was recommending songs on this record right now, it will be “THIS IS NOT A SONG, 1929” for the vocal delivery and “River Flows, 1971” for the comforting message. 

That’s all for now, and I hope you all enjoyed reading this post. Feel free to give me your opinions on each artist in the comment section🥰.

Catching Up With Recent Comebacks: SuperM|Davichi|Kyuhyun|Kang Daniel & Wheein

Although I have older releases that I plan to review, I’ve decided to be on track with this week’s comebacks since I have more time on my hands now.

(Please note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while checking out each artist.)

On April 9th, SuperM released a collaborative campaign single with Prudential Corporation Asia titled “We DO”, so let’s check that out –

Wow, it took a good minute and fifty-three seconds for my brain to register that this song is entirely in English. I was busy grooving to the retro instrumental, which I love and forgot that, oh, I could understand everything😂😂😂. The production quality on the instrumental is fantastic. Also, the guys look good, and their vocals are on point. I also like the choreography; it’s fun. My only issue with “We DO” is the uneven line and screen distribution. However, I think the vocalists got more attention because this is a heavy vocal track. All the same, “We DO” is undoubtedly one of my favourites from SuperM.


Up next is Davichi, who released their new digital single, “Just hug me”, yesterday –

I missed their beautiful voices and harmonies, so this is a well-needed comeback. Another song with a beautiful instrumental + how their vocals blend into the string instruments is pure bliss. I also love the music video because it gives me a sense of what the song’s about since English subtitles are not available. The actors did a great job of showcasing the couple’s emotions. “Just hug me” gets a yes from me.


Following up is KYUHYUN (of Super Junior). Earlier today, he released a new digital single titled “Coffee”

Nice, it’s the same actors from his previous single, “Moving On”. This video seems to be showing how their relationship started in high school. Kyuhyun’s voice is very calming. I could listen to him sing all day, + the chill vibe of “Coffee” is just perfect for me. I have nothing more to say than this is a 100% playlist-worthy song for me.


KANG DANIEL also released his 3rd mini-album, Yellow, earlier today. First, let’s check out the title track – “Antidote”, and I’ll follow up with a quick opinion of the album –

I have been hearing a lot about this artist but never found the time to check him out. This comeback presents the perfect opportunity to see what Kang Daniel has to offer. First off, he has a beautiful voice, and I love the intricate choreography. I’m usually hesitant about diving into new singers, but I’m pretty impressed in this case. I love his vibe, and “Antidote” is a lovely song.

What sold this album for me were the groovy beats, beautiful vocals and overall production quality. Not every song caught my attention on the first listen, but the few that did were brilliant. This record gave me a good feel of Kang Daniel’s potential, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for him in the future. My rating for Yellow is 9/10. My favourite songs in order are “PARANOIA” – “Save U” and “Antidote”.


To close, I have Whee In (of Mamamoo). Earlier today, she released her 1st mini-album, Redd. Per usual, I’ll first react to the title track – “water color” and follow up with my opinion on the album –

Right off the bat, I love the cinematography for this music video. Very classy and clean visuals, + Whee In looks gorgeous. The blue gown is my favourite outfit. Also, the vocals are on point. I’m thoroughly enjoying this retro surge in Korean music. “water color” is a song that I can see myself listening to a lot because it’s right up my alley.

This album was such a beautiful experience. I enjoyed every minute of listening to Whee In’s lovely vocals + the featured artists were some of my favourites. Every song got my attention on first listen, mainly because they completely align with my music preference, but all the same, Redd is an excellent record. Therefore it gets a 10/10 rating from me. It was hard to pick favourites, but for now, I’ll have to choose “Butterfly (feat. GSoul)” because the vocal quality and harmonies on that song are immaculate.

I hope you all enjoyed this post, and feel free to leave your opinions on each artist’s comeback in the comment section🥰.
