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, Tina Xu and this week's special co-host Jason Lipshutz 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 Twice's peppy comeback with "Cheer Up" off their Page Two EP (at 16:55), Seventeen return with their fun "Pretty U" single off their debut full-length album Love&Letter (at 25:10), and Lovelyz go in a direction with "Destiny" off their A New Trilogy EP (at 31:40).
In the "Deep Cuts" section (at 39:40), we welcome Fuse editor Jason Lipshutz who talked about meeting and watching Epik High at Coachella 2016, and discuss the potential of K-pop at future American festivals. As always, we'll count down the K-pop songs shaking up the U.S. iTunes charts, respond to listener comments and give you insider tea you can't find anywhere else.
