Heize is currently completely dominating the charts with a song that Koreans are apparently madly in love with, but I don’t care for at all. It’s just some standard rainy day ballad.
What I do care about is that the queen Lee Hyori is back in business. FYI she was a very very big deal. But awhile back she went on hiatus to go live in the woods with her husband. I guess she finally got the urge to come and make more music. The song doesn’t excite me.
What does excite me is her new variety show. Hyori’s Bed & Breakfast, which is literally just people coming to hang out at her house in the woods. Also IU is there. Available online with legal subs! Only two episodes out so far.
The only other important news is that BTS put out a remake of a Seo Taji’s track “Come Back Home.” It’s really good. I find it interesting that they filmed a music video for this, but none of the members of BTS appear in it.
Also of note. BTS stands for Bangtan Sonyeondan. This translates literally to Bulletproof Boy Scouts, and that is how people refer to them in English. They are also sometimes called Bangtan Boys.
They have just announced they are changing their brand image. So now in English they are officially called “Beyond the Scene”. This is a really big WTF.
