We would also love to include your submissions alongside ours so if you wish to share vids that you have loved over the last week, do so in the comments below. BUt keep it Asian pop music or culture related, please. lol.
Zen (APR Indo Pop reporter):
Maudy Ayunda's 'Sekali Lagi'
My YouTube video clip addiction for this week is is ‘Sekali Lagi’ (Once More) from Maudy Ayunda. Most of her songs relate to Dee’s song's (Dewi Lestari, the amazing writer and singer that I talked in Hump Day two weeks ago). Maudy played as the main character, Kugi, in Dee’s film ‘Perahu Kertas’ (Paper Boat), a must watch film if you’re looking for a good quality Indonesian movie. Her song and dance moves in ‘Sekali Lagi’ are simple but deep. She’s not a dancer, but personally all of her dance movements and combination of digital effects are just hypnotising me to not stop watching it!
Sung (APR contributor):
Jay Chou celebrates CNY
As it is the week of Chinese New Year and also celebrating the recent concert of Jay Chou, I recommend this clip from the Chinese New Year show from China with a magician and Jay Chou for this year of the dog 2018. Happy new year everybody!
Jhube (APR Operations Manager):
Winter Olympic Bromance.
My obsession this week is the bromance of these two ice skaters They're rivals as they compete against each other, but their skills are on par, so we often see them both on the podiums next to each other.
Cassandra (APR News Coordinator):
Be Like Korean Oppa!
We posted this first time a couple weeks ago, but its clearly doing the rounds. Cassandra of our APR news team is still loving this clip from Malaysia. Clear to see that the wave continues to sweep across Asia.
Jay John (APR CEO & presenter):
The Newy from the CLC girls
The CLC girls continue to impress me and also the APR team. We are loving the new MV that was only just dropped yestersday. They bring the high energy we have come to expect from the girls and the video itself is kickin'. I also think the ladies have really stepped things up in the fassion stakes with this one. What do you think? I recon they are set for their most successful track yet!
Aurora (APR YT 'Wrap Around Asia' Kpop reviewer):
Still on the Javier band-wagon..
Just like Jhube, Aurora is loving the theatrics of this Spanish ice skater who has been turning heads in Korea at the 2018 Winter Olympics. In this clip specifically, Javier wowed crowds ahead of the 2014 Winter Olmpics. What a performance!
