The Report in Video:


10cm - What The Spring?



Hello everybody and welcome to Weekly Kpop News, I’m your host Timo and this is what happened this week in the Korean music, drama and entertainment world.


BTS Epilogue - Young Forever was released this Monday. Make sure to give all your support to this really talented group. They deserve it.

This week has also been great for Apink fans as they released a new song called The Wave. And with Eunji her solo album called Dream with as title song Hopefully sky Apink fans couldn’t be happier.
Twice - Cheer Up comeback is coming faster than ever and the members from Twice allready treat us with their amazing visual teasers. Personally I’m more hyped than ever.

Seventeen - Love & Letter &
Lovelyz - A New Trilogy are also coming back in the upcoming week. So get ready for some amazing Kpop in the last few days of April.

There are songs that are really popular right now in Korea that you might not even know about. A song that carries the feeling of spring in Korea is 10cm - What The Spring? It’s a nice calm indie song with funny lyrics. I’ll put a link in the description.


The last episode of Descendants of the Sun was aired last week. The drama was a huge succes in and outside of Korea. The viewrate was incredibly high and the OST did well too with songs like:

Wind Beneath Your Winds
With You I
How Can I Love You
Be My Side
You Are My Everything
Once Again
Talk Love
This Love

All of these songs made the top40 some way or another and so this OST basically dominated the charts with their brilliant vocals. I personally like This Love and Talk Love the most.


This week the new drama Entertainer aired. The drama has 16 episodes and an all star cast. Like

Ji Sung,
Chae Jung Ahn,
Kang Min Hyun from CNBlue
and Hye Ri from Girl’s Day!

Definitely a drama to follow



Hyunseung leaves Beast after 7 years. There have been complaints about Hyunseung his attitude on and off stage but it is unsure if this is the reason why he left.
Cube Entertainment gave an official statement on 19 April in which they said;

‘’Jang Hyunseung and the five members have been talking and consulting continually with the company about making a change to team activities due to differences in personality that began with different opinions on music. After long deliberation between all the members, it was agreed that the group would part company with Jang Hyunseung and the team would be reorganized.’’

Jang Hyunseung will now continue as a solo artist and I hope that you will to support him as he is still a great singer, dancer and good looking.
