Jive Monkey Playlist: 8/31/15

This weekend, I finished watching the last episode of Season 4 of Show Me the Money, which is competition between rappers.  I’m not sure if this was the right season to tune into for the first time.  This season was fraught with controversy from the issue of Team Verbal Jint and San E reversing their decision about Black Nut to the editing to the leakage of information.  That last issue caused the production team to decide to broadcast the final episode live.  I can’t say that the live broadcast wasn’t without its problems but I was definitely rooting for this rapper that I’m featuring today.  If you haven’t caught up with the show yet, spoilers abound.

Just Bananas About: Week of 8/28/15

Recently, I’ve been watching and enjoying the K-Drama, The Eccentric Daughter-in-Law.  I’ve admitted that it’s a drama that has me scratching my head because the tone and style of the drama is more suited for daytime audiences.  I am watching a lot of serious dramas and this is the only comedy I’m watching so it’s was a nice relief to watch something lighthearted.  Certainly, there is a lot of issues I find with the show but there’s are also things that I find really endearing about it.

This weekend, Infinity Challenge finally aired their Young Dong Highway Music Festival which was filmed earlier this month on the Pyeongchang Winter Olympic grounds.  Despite the unfortunate incident where festival goers left behind tons of garbage and fans of Zion.T accidentally dialing the wrong number and filling the mailbox of a regular person, it seems to have gone off without too much of a hitch.  Although I liked most of the song from the various groups, I picked 3 songs to feature on this week’s playlist.

Primary is back with a new full-length album.  He’s been releasing some single for the last few months and I covered one of the tracks awhile back.  I’m glad to see him again after the plagiarism controversy.  Like his first album, I found that I could easily fall in love with every single track of this 2nd album, simply titled “2”.  Although, I’m not able to translate every single song, here is a sampling of a few of my favorite tracks.

So I wasn’t able to make it out to LA again this year but I literally just finished watching the M! Countdown of the show in LA.  It looked like a lot of fun and hopefully I’ll be able to make it out to the West Coast again next year.  However, KCON NY (or KCON NJ) was a blast as well.  I got a brand new camera just for the occasion and lots of pics and videos to share!
