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.
It's a "Fire" episode where we discuss BTS' return with their Young Forever compilation album that's taking over the charts (at the 8:00 mark), along with the debut of the Produce 101 girl group I.O.I and their "Dream Girls" single (at 18:50), along with Akdong Musician's comeback with "Re-Bye" and "How People Move" singles off their Spring EP (at 29:00).
In our Deep Cuts section (at 40:15), we talk about the upcoming solo debut battle between Girls' Generation member Tiffany and the ex-Girls' Generation member Jessica, and what it may mean for fans. 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.
