BLACKPINK is confirmed to make a comeback next month

Rumours about a new BLACKPINK album spread in March and it’s finally official: Blinks can look forward to seeing the girls back on stage this coming June. YG Entertainment responded to a report about the girl group’s recently recorded album to confirm the comeback. There’s no official date yet but it’s most likely to be in early- to mid-June. YG promises that the fans will be the first to know when they’ll see their idols perform again. We can’t wait!

Protect your skin with KOSÉ SEKKISEI’s next-generation sunscreens

Next, don’t forget sun protection. Sunscreen is still an important part of skincare, especially for those who spend most of their time in front of a computer screen. Luckily, KOSÉ SEKKISEI further improved their sunscreen formulations to provide more coverage. The gentle but powerful sunscreen is formulated with 80 per cent moisturising serum for added comfort. It will be available on Lazada starting 15 May.

Hercules is getting a live-action remake

We’re ready to see Hercules turn from a zero to a hero in the upcoming live-action remake! The Russo brothers (yes, of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame notoriety) are set to produce and they’ve tapped Expendables writer David Callahan to bring the 1997 animated classic to life. Ever since the announcement, Twitter has been flooded with casting requests. Everyone seems to be in agreement that whoever gets chosen to play the Muses can make or break the film. In the meantime, we’ll keep replaying Ariana Grande’s rendition of “I Won’t Say (I’m In Love)” from the movie.
