K-WEEK (AUGUST 7)

THE WINNERS OF PRODUCE 101 SEASON 2, WANNA ONE, ARE FEELIN’ ENERGETIC

If you weren’t aware, Wanna One is a twelve-member group that are made up of Produce 101 Season 2 winners. Basically, 101 Korean boys competed to be part of the group, and it was competitive and emotional to say the very least. But, despite all of that drama, the group were able to produce an incredible first mini-album. Although a somewhat lackluster music video, the title song ‘Energetic’ has incredible choreography and features each of the twelve members.

Also, another thing to note, is the group’s great star presence throughout their lives performances. You would never think it was their first time after seeing them perform "Burn It Up." Although Wanna One will only be around for a year, I'm sure that the group will leave an impact, and they already have with their debut music video having the most views out of any debut K-pop group

BTS FREAKS OUT ARMY WITH ENDLESS TEASER PROMOTIONS

OKAY, so what is going on?! That was the question on everyone's minds this weekend when BigHit Entertainment released multiple teaser photos! Although it has been clarified that these teaser photos are NOT for the BTS comeback in September, but is for a drama that BTS is producing, it's still all part of the "Love Yourself" campaign. The campaign will span for multiple projects according to some reports and will be a primary subject of the BTS mini-album coming up next month. The group is clearly as popular as ever, with the hashtag #Love_Yourself going viral in less than half an hour after the release of the first photo featuring Jungkook in a wheelchair. Many are speculating the theories behind these photos (because being a BTS fan is never easy) and what it all truly means in the BTS music video timeline.
