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.
Check out all the music and artists we talk about in our Episode 15 YouTube playlist and read on for more on this week's topics:
This week we discuss...
-The solo debut of former Girls' Generation member Jessica with her lead single "Fly" and accompanying EP titled With Love, J (at the 14:25 mark)
-G.Soul's latest pair of singles with "Far, Far Away" and "Where Do We Go From Here" (23:05)
-The empowering, Baywatch-inspired "Good Luck" comeback from AOA, a girl group currently embroiled in a bit of a controversy for recent comments made on television (30:35)
Plus, in our Deep Cuts section (at 43:45), we talk about an allegedly shady comment made by Yoseob of Beast that are being interpreted as a jab to his company, Cube Entertainment and what it says about the current state of his group and the label. 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.
