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 Crush's new singles "Woo Ahh" and "9 to 5" featuring Gaeko of Dynamic Duo from his new Interlude EP (at the 8:10 mark), Infinite's power vocalist Woohyun makes his solo debut with "Nodding" from his Write.. EP (17:30) as does Girls' Generation singer Tiffany with "I Just Wanna Dance" from her first EP (at 25:00).
In our Deep Cuts section (at 38:55), we talk about the new EDM-focused label of ScreaM Records under SM Entertainment, their first release with f(x) members Luna and Amber, famous producer R3hab and rising Korean DJ/production duo XaviGi, and what we envision this record label can accomplish for the K-pop scene. 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.
