Yonghwa is the lead singer of the kpop band (they don’t really dance, they play instruments and sing) CNBlue, of whom I am a fan. While Yonghwa isn’t my favorite in the group, I absolutely love his voice. When I read that he was going to release a solo album, I was pretty excited. And then I found out that he was collaborating with one of my favorite Mandarin singers, JJ Lin, which made me even more excited. This is the music video for their collab song — and it’s fantastic. For subtitles, just turn on closed captioning (CC).

Music Sundays: 吴亦凡 Wu Yi Fan – 《时间煮雨》Time Boils the Rain {Official Audio}

Wu Yifan (known also as Kris, formerly of the kpop group EXO) just released a single(?) for the third installment of the Chinese film franchinese Tiny Times and it’s WONDERFUL. I mean, I’m a fan of his, so maybe that’s also the fangirl in me talking, but … decide for yourself.
