Find out your SB19 bias’ pop culture reco for you

We disclosed our love for our fave P-pop underdogs last #SCOUTFridayPicks. As they touched on their album and artistic process, we got to know the boys better as artists and professionals. 

But just like us, they need some downtime, too. We live in a weird-ass time right now and entertainment is all we got during dark times. 

So, in hopes of forming a virtual care package for A’TIN, we asked the boys their pop culture recommendations we can distract ourselves with. Get ready for some sweet anime recs and make room on your Spotify playlist. Here are some SB19-approved shows and music that can expand your taste a little bit more. 


“Dami kong tinapos na [Asian] drama during quarantine. ‘Crash Landing on You,’ ‘Itaewon Class’ at ‘Girl From Nowhere.’”


“Ang ginagawa ko usually, other than relax lang and watch entertaining stuff, meron akong pinapanood na clip sa YouTube na one hour na bumabiyahe na train. Tinitigan ko lang siya to relieve stress and may music lang siya na soft and calm. Nanonood rin po ako ng ‘My Hero Academia.’”


“Pagdating sa anime siguro, ‘Tokyo Ghoul,’ ‘One Piece,’ at ‘Bleach.’ Nakalimutan ko na ‘yung iba sa sobrang dami.”


“Nakikinig ako kay IU. Hirap ako kasi makatulog sa gabi. Nakakatulog po ako kay IU. Lalo po ‘yung mga nauna niyang albums, nakakapakalma po sa akin.”
