In the UK going to the park needs to be planned ahead, make sure to check the weather – hourly weather and check that every hour before going out. Even a slim chance of rain means, don’t go. Instead, in South Korea, going to the park is a popular activity in the summer months and doesn’t […]
A super delicious dessert in South Korea is shaved ice. Actually, it is popular all year round with seasonal flavours, but of course it is especially popular during the Summer months! Unlike ice cream or ice lollies, shaved ice is soft, airy and melts in the mouth.

With the summer coming to an end and back to school season fast approaching, it’s hard to keep spirits up. But don’t worry! JYP’s solo artist Park Jimin is here to the rescue with her mini-album 19 to 20 and comeback track Try.
With back to school season fully underway, both in South Korea and in many other countries around the world, we thought it would be fun to see what new school supplies Korean students will be buying. Some will be expected, others might be a complete surprise!
Summer is the best season for new Korean music releases, with multiple groups making their comeback every week! This week we will be reviewing VIXX’s Fantasy, the song used to promote their sixth single album Hades.
Step aside 2ne1! YG Entertainment’s new girl group Blackpink has made their debut and it’s caused quite a storm across social media. Their single album Square One has already nabbed the number one spot on the Worldwide iTunes Album Chart, a feat no other girl group except Fifth Harmony has achieved. This week we have decided to review Whistle, which has already amassed over four million views!

If you were lucky enough to attend KCON LA, NY, or Paris, then we can (only) imagine, that you had the time of your life! K-Pop fans know the struggle of their country not actually being a part of the world, especially when there is a “World Tour”, and your continent/country isn’t a part of it!
Even though it’s already August, summer isn’t over yet! The hot 11-member boy group Up10tion has made a sensational comeback with their new song ‘Tonight’! From pool fun to popcorn, we couldn’t have asked for more!

Last week the song All Mine which starred the lovely ladies of f(x) was released as part of SM Station. This project was launched by SM Entertainment in February this year, with the idea of releasing a new single each week. From solos by SM artists such as Taeyeon’s Rain to collaborations with non-SM artists like Lil’ Something which featured Chen and Heize, the concept of showcasing musical talents is a great success so far and we can’t wait to hear the upcoming singles!
If you’re off to Korea this year, make sure to try freshly made Sikhye from street stalls! If not, you can easily make it at home too. This refreshing rice punch will keep you cool and makes the perfect pool side drink.
