JO1 K-pop + J-pop

If you’re into Korean pop culture and music, you’re going to want to check out the boy group JO1 (jay-oh-one) from Japan. The group was formed through the reality competition show PRODUCE 101 JAPAN (similar to the popular girs group NiziU) in 2020 and released their debut single Protostar on March 4, 2020. The leader of the group, Yonashiro Sho, is from Okinawa and his profile page lists that he excels at the acoustic guitar, English, and weight training. Needless to say, the production quality is high, the songs are very catchy, and they look like K-pop stars! Best of all, most of their music is on Apple Music among other streaming services (link to their debut album).
