New J-pop and K-pop Releases

Here are some new releases from the J-pop and K-pop worlds. :)


Koda Kumi- Ultraviolet

Koda Kumi*is set to release her 13th/14th studio albums on 8th March. It will be a double album release and is called W FACE ~inside~ and W FACE~outside~. It's her first album for 2 years; the last was Walk of my Life in 2015 and contains two previously released singles, Kimi Omoy and Shh!

This is Ultraviolet from W FACE ~outside. It's an Avex video, so it's not full length. (They tend to show short versions).

FAKY- Surrender

And girl group FAKY  have a new single called Surrender. It came out on 1st March (my birthday!).


Taeyeon- Don't Say

Taeyeon (full name Kim Tae-yeon)* from girl group Girls' Generation is also a solo artist. She released her debut EP I in October that year. Before then she had released singles, including Like a Star with Korean singer The One and Different with K-R'n'b singer Kim Bum-soo.

Last November Taeyeon brought out the single 11:11 and at the end of February she released Fine, the first single from for her debut album My Voice which came out on the same day.

This is I Got Love, the second single from the album.

Note: This next one has been around for about a month but it's still recent, so I'll include it! :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.

Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:



Brianna Jaramillo

Brianna is 18 and  lives in W…
