Flashback Friday

Wassup party people. Happy Friday. Every week I go through the charts for this day in the past and post the top three songs. Then I pick out two more from the top ten as honorable mentions. This week, we are going back five years to the 1st week of July 2017.

#3 Twice “Signal”
2017 was a busy year for the group. They started it off with their first solo concerts, a Japanese debut, and a handful of Korean releases. This was the lead single for the EP of the same name. It was debut at the top spot, and stay there for two weeks. The song would give the girls MAMA awards for SOTY and best female dance performance, as well as 12 music show wins. I don’t remember being a fan of the song. I don’t think I’ve ever really seen the music video. Are…are they trying to get with an alien? What is it with JYP girl groups and aliens? Omona, who would you rather? This “Signal” alien or the “2 Different Tears” alien?

This year's forum will be held in person for the first time since 2019, as the 2020 and 2021 meetings were held online due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The band will release its second EP, titled "Girls," next Friday.

Astro’s Cha Eunwoo may star in Hollywood film

Cha Eunwoo of Astro is considering taking a lead role in “K-Pop: Lost in America,” according to a local media report on Friday. He is looking at the proposal favorably, but nothing has been confirmed yet, said agency Fantagio following the report.

Cha has appeared in a series of dramas including “True Beauty” and the movie “My Brilliant Life.” He recently finished shooting the drama “Island.”

The feature-length movie is set to premiere in 2023 and will be co-produced by Lynda Obst (“Interstellar”) and CJ Entertainment’s Vice Chair Miky Lee. Director JK Youn -- of “Haeundae” and “Ode to My Father” -- will direct the movie. Rebel Wilson and Charles Melton are reported to have been cast. The film will follow a K-pop male musician who happens to be stranded in Texas. He, with neither money nor a smartphone, has to make it to New York where his debut tour in the US will start in couple of days.

The news of the movie excited K-pop fans when the director said that he will cast actual K-pop stars to appeal to a global audience.
