Zion.T has finally released his first album since joining YG Entertainment as part of The Black Label. At first glance or listen rather, the album is quite excellent with a mix of classic music genres (such as bossa nova) with Zion.T’s uniquely charming and poetic flavor. I think what I was really taken by in regards to this album is Zion.T’s personal voice about life, love and his own career. It’s that kind of intrinsic honesty that makes him so relatable to a lot of listeners.
A programming note…
I’ll be on vacation for the rest of the month to the land of hobbits, elves and home to Flight of the Conchords. There will be a new playlist post for this Friday but I’ll update the blog once I have returned from Middle Earth in 3 weeks. Feel free to follow on Instagram and Twitter and comment. I’ll try to keep up as best as I can with shows but no drama spoilers, please.
As much as I am critical of Running Man these days, the chemistry between its members is undeniable. It actually took me a few days to watch last week’s Running Man but when I did, I just couldn’t help rolling on the floor with laughter. Literally.
Oftentimes, I think when you see a track with rappers you expect to hear something edgy and tenacious. But sometimes, rappers are able to show their sensitive side. And that’s what I see in the case of the tracks on this week’s playlist.
For those who were fans of Another Oh Hae Young, there’s another drama that started early this year that will give you the same vibes as that drama. Introverted Boss stars Yeon Woo Jin in the title role and I’ve been meaning to watch another drama with him since I was drawn to his acting in Arang and the Magistrate. There always seemed to be one reason or another as to why it just didn’t work out so even though I’m overwhelmed with watching dramas at the moment, I just wanted to make sure I didn’t pass this one up.
I realize that Episodes 5 and 6 have been preempted this week but there are a lot of things I like about the drama so I’m hoping that the rewrites will help the drama instead of hurt it. The drama is about Eun Hwan Ki (Yeon Woo Jin) who deals with having severe social anxiety to the point where he has a hard time being around people outside of his immediate family and close friends. His social anxiety cripples him as he is the head of his family’s PR and marketing company.
