That day Blackpink made history by becoming the first Korean girl band to play at Coachella, the biggest music festival in the world. However, it wasn’t the first time the world saw Korean pop stars receiving such global recognition as several Korean bands paved the way for them.

At this point in time there are basically two big names in K-Pop that the Gen-Z practically worships; the boy band BTS and the female quartet Blackpink among the other fairly popular ones like EXO, Seventeen, Stray kids and Bigbang. The influence of these groups can be easily confirmed by looking at their back to back top ratings at the billboard and the massive viewership on YouTube which is hardly ever less than millions and very frequently reaching billions.

Now as the temperatures don’t seem to be easing up just yet, one of our favourite ways to unwind over the upcoming holidays this year can be by mixing up a fancy Thanksgiving cocktail with a delicious holiday dessert.

The Receipt Keeper D'Angelo Wallace always knows how to cut through the chaos.

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW what’s going on with YouTubers or anybody else with a modicum of influence online, you’ve got two options. You can watch their videos and scour Instagram—or you can get thee to a YouTube drama channel. And no one does a channel quite like D’Angelo Wallace. The Texas-based 22-year-old packs his superlong explainer videos (many of them run over an hour) with timelines, charts, and commentary—a hybrid model that perfectly encapsulates the messiness of the influencers he covers. He now has more than 2.18 million subscribers. “I will say it’s not necessarily a case of me always striving to have the best research, or I’m always going to be 100 percent correct,” Wallace said. “I just am obsessed with the storytelling of it all.”
