Welcome to K-Stop, Fuse's K-pop podcast and the No. 1 destination for fun, insightful commentary on the biggest K-pop news, music, issues, and beyond.
Every Wednesday, we'll deliver you a fresh episode, in which hosts Jeff Benjamin and Tina Xu will not only dish on the latest in the scene, but also respond to the topics that are important to you and the K-pop community at large.
This week, we discuss Block B showing a softer side of themselves with their new singles "Toy" and "A Few Years Later" off their Blooming Period EP, K-pop legend J. Y. Park returning to the scene with both "Stay Alive" and "Fire" featuring Conan O'Brien, Steven Yeun and Jimin Park, plus GOT7's new single "Home Run."
In the "Deep Cuts" section, we break down the ambitious debut of SM Entertainment's Neo Culture Technology project via their NCT U unit and the singles "The 7th Sense" and "Without You." We give you the must-know facts, and review the new songs and videos. And as always, we'll count down the K-pop songs shaking up the U.S. iTunes charts and respond to listener comments.
Check out all the music and artists we talk about in our Episode 10 YouTube playlist:
