Taeyeon admits she had trouble relating to the lyrics of "Four Season"

On the 27th, Taeyeon revealed on Instagram that she couldn't relate to the lyrics of her latest song until she realized that it was actually about her career.

At first, I couldn't identify at all. I thought it wasn't my story. And I forced myself to adjust. Even though I put in effort. Still I felt my experience and background was different. But now as I listen to "Four Seasons", what suddenly comes to mind is that it's (this song could be about) music, that took up the greatest importance in my life up to the point I turned thirty, and my story. It's about my current state and how I fought and loved music and songs that have accompanied me forever. Something like that.

Not obvious words like "I'm married to music" but truly making music and singing, and all of the emotions that I felt is distilled exactly as is, so now I think "Four Seasons" is totally my song. My feeling right now is truly peculiar. Thankfully, I can sing it sincerely.

Flashback Friday

Happy Friday! I made it out of jury duty alive this week, so I am ready for the weekend! Every week I check out 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, let’s see what was on top for the 5th week in March, 2014. The ladies dominate the top three, so I let the guys have the honorable mentions this week.

#3 Orange Caramel “Catallena”

I remember this being super popular, I felt like they promoted this for some time. I love their sushi outfits here so much, I really liked all their styling this era. So pretty! I still laugh whenever I see that compilation video of the song’s opening with their (especially Nana’s) “Hah!” from the live stages.

Old-style trot music goes viral

Videos of several competitors on TV Chosun's hit show "Ms. Trot for Tomorrow" that searches for a trot diamond in the rough have captured hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube. Some videos have amassed over 1 million views within days after each episode of the show aired on Thursday nights.

The saga of the unknown trot singers on YouTube came as a surprise to many, mainly because of the music genre's "dismal" presence in the local music scene.

That first video was posted just yesterday and already has almost half a million views. According to another article about the show, there are KPop trainees, former group members (I think Rania's Hyeme), and housewives on the show. Honestly I'm gonna start watching because of Jang Yun-jeong, she always has the best reactions lol.

BTS' RM and Suga talk mental health, depression, and connecting with fans

Pop stardom may be a dream job, but the artists who make it still struggle with many of the same realities their fans do.

This week’s EW cover stars BTS have made a point of bringing the feelings nearly everyone experiences at some point in their lives — sadness, loneliness, low self-esteem — into the light, both in their song lyrics and in the missions they support, like their Love Myself campaign (which they presented at a United Nations youth summit last September) and #ENDviolence partnership with UNICEF.

During a recent interview at the Seoul headquarters of their record label Big Hit Entertainment, the band sat down with EW to cover a whole range of topics (their experience at the Grammys, their secret hobbies, why they love John Cena). But they got serious, too, on the topic of mental health.
