8th August (Saturday)
9th August (Sunday)
MondayKiz & Lee Yejoon – “Get Out Of My Heart”
Whether you like love songs/ballads or not is irrelevant. This song is exquisitely heart wrenching, a specialty of MondayKiz
Not enough? There’s a drama version too.
ChoMyo – “Walk”
A soft soothing single to keep you company on a summer night.
Seo Gi – “Homework”
A cute song about not wanting to do homework? Relatable af.
10th August (Monday)
Han Seung Woo (VICTON) – “Sacrifice”
Fresh off his first mini-album ‘Fame‘, VICTON’s leader gives us fresh vocals and rap in this edgy R&B/hip-hop track. Definitely, a great solo debut.
HYOLYN – “9LIVES”
The track was performed by the former SISTAR member on ‘Good Girl‘ and fans are thrilled to see it now has it’s own MV! ‘9LIVES‘ is the pre-release to this legend’s mini-album ‘Say My Name‘ (dropping on 19th August).

HEDY – “You Were Really Not Good”
This song is so powerful and emotionally charged without being overwhelming. This is HEDY’s second release since debuting in 2019 with the mini-album ‘Portion For HEDY‘.
JYP and Sunmi – “When We Disco”
A collaboration between JYP and former Wonder Girls member Sunmi? Iconic. Is this THE catchiest song of 2020? May-haps. It was a little unnerving not hearing the signature “JYP” whisper when the song started, but no worries – it was at the end of the track.
Chun Myung Hoon – “Myung Hoon Is Going”
For those new to the K-Pop scene, Chun Myung Hoon was a member of NRG – a first generation K-Pop group. This trot song will have you smiling before you know. Spot the scenes’s inspired by Agust D’s (BTS’ Suga) “Daechwita” MV!
