If you’ve been too busy to keep your eyes on the K-POP music scene, buried in work from home stress or making your way into studying from home with online classes, don’t worry because we’ve got you covered. Our Weekly K-POP Recap segment is made just for you.
Here are (hopefully) all the new music drops from 8th to 14th September!
Chen (EXO) – “Your Moonlight”
Another OST for the on-going drama ‘Do You Like Brahms?’, “Your Moonlight” is a beautiful ballad that shows off the EXO member’s vocals.
Mellow Week – “A Good Day”
A feel good acoustic track that’ll have you in a better mood than before.
OVAN – “Happy Birthday”
A super cutesy romantic birthday track that will make you feel single AF. And yes, there are two versions of the music video.
Chuther – “lazygirl”
Redefining low budget music videos to give you a good laugh, Chuther sings about being too “lazy” to conform to what society expects.
Lee Woo – “A Reason To Break Up”
If you like those angsty romantic K-Dramas, you will love this one. A sad ballad paired with music video with an actual plot, you will not be able to look away.
Ccola – “WEAK” (feat. U-TURN)
Something different to listen to. What could’ve been very ordinary takes a unique turn with the echo effect and retro vibes.
HA:TFELT – “La Luna”
The R&B/Soul artist brings us a ritzy new bop that is dreamy and sultry in the best way.
MAMAMOO – “Wanna Be Myself”
Perfection. Literally no words. MAMAMOO always put out great music.
Peakboy – “Loop” (Guitar ver.)
This acoustic track about happiness in the small things in life is calming.
9.10000 (Goman) – “Hidden Words”
Retro folk singer Goman gives us this beautiful indie track about hiding your love for someone.
BE’O – “That’s Wolf”
A surprisingly chill bop by solo artist BE’O. Are you getting G-Dragon, Song Mino and Jay Park vibes from him too?
Khakii – “Midsommar” (feat. Leellamarz)
Rapper Khakii bringing us the K-HipHop we didn’t know we needed to hear.
BOOHWAL – “The Moment”
K-Rock band BOOHWAL debuted back in 1985. Although its different from what mainstream K-POP fans are used to, it is definitely worth a listen.
Jeon Youl – “MAMACITA”
The former member of now disbanded girl group STELLAR has made her solo debut with a Latin inspired track.
$ÜN – “EMPTY” (feat. Boi-b)
Fresh off the solo artist’s debut release ‘EMPTY & ERASE‘, the track “Empty” blends vocal melodies and rap beautifully.
GIST – “Promise” (feat. Leellamarz)
GV – “Coco” (feat. EK)
Once more, we find ourselves on the weird side of K-HipHop. But bizarre video editing aside, the track soon has you bopping along.
CL – “Post Up”
The Queen, The Baddest Female is making a comeback. Yes, this is just an intro to the upcoming album but it is heavy.
Sik-K, Golden, pH-1, Jay Park – “Gotta Go”
This track is a bop. It’s a groovy track that has surprisingly motivational lyrics. The rap and the vocals are both A+.
ASTRO Moonbin&Sanha – “Bad Idea”
ASTRO giving us cute concepts is just a given, but this new ASTRO sub-unit will charm you with this sexy new vibe. Don’t forget to check out their debut EP ‘IN-OUT‘.
ID:Earth – “Human”
Everything about this track, music video to vocals is hauntingly beautiful. An experience.
Geeks – “Heartbreak Hotel” (feat. DeVita)
Punch – “Love Me”
Punch is back with another beautiful OST, this time for the on-going drama ‘Do You Like Brahms?’.
YELLA – “Bloom” (feat. snzae)
From his debut EP ‘Maybecolourful‘, YELLA gives us fresh, dreamy, almost city pop vibes with his debut single “Bloom“.
Wazzy – “Fantasia”
Already drawing comparisons to Sunmi and Eyedi, Wazzy brings us a dark, retro pop track.
Knave – “Hotcake” (feat. Soovi)
R&B solo artist Knave charms us with a fun little bop that is sure to get stuck in your head.
And that’s a wrap! Don’t forget to tune in next week for another Weekly K-POP Recap and do let us know if you think we’ve missed out on any new drops!
Stay tuned for debuts of NTX, WEi, DRIPPIN and comebacks from CL, Everglow, UP10TION and more!

Netflix is planning to invest USD 500 million in South Korea for 2021 and we couldn’t be more excited!
February 24th, 2021
Dispatch Korea has been known for exposing celebrities dating life and sometimescontroversial events as well. Among the many reveals and news that Dispatch dealt with, they have now given us some interesting news.
Earlier today, they reported that Blackpink’s Jennie and Big Bang’s G-Dragon have been dating for a year. The reports stated that the couple’s romantic hangout spot was G-Dragon’s penthouse in Hannam, which is guarded and is highly secure with a two step verification entry. The penthouse also has two entrances and separate elevators that takes them directly to it, making it easy for Jennie to use it in secret. It was also mentioned that Jennie’s car was registered in the security system. Reports further say that, Jennie after completing her schedule usually visits him. Dispatch reports also say that after the day of Blackpink’s very first online concert, Jennie was seen that morning leaving from G-Dragon’s house to the venue of the concert. According to reports, the relationship was made public with YG Labels and sometimes her manager according to schedule picks her up and drops her. It was also further stated that at times, G-Dragons manager gave Jennies rides. An acquaintance who was supposedly close to the two artists disclosed to Dispatch, “A lot of people in YG noticed their relationship. Jennie’s mother is also aware of their relationship and she is thankful to him for his thoughtful care.”
Dispatch also released the below images but as per fans, there is no clear evidence to maintain the claim.
Subsequent to the release of these reports, YG Entertainment voiced out, “We cannot confirm anything about our artists’ private lives. We ask for your understanding.”
It is known that YG usually denies rumors or does not disclose much, now given the fact that both the artist are under the same label it might be harder to get them to talk. But given the fact that Dispatch usually reveals dating news, this new couple could probably be true.
Both the artists have accomplished great achievements in the K-Pop industry and are amazing artists, full of talent, determination, and life. They have worked so hard to get to where they are now and that path for sure was not a cake walk. The artists have given up on a number of things that young teens and young adults enjoy. If this news is true, we hope that the things work out as per their wish and that they find happiness!
