Every Wednesday, we'll deliver you a fresh episode where 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 26 YouTube playlist and read on for more on this week's topics:

This week we discuss...
-The sexy solo comeback from HyunA, her first release after the disbandment of 4Minute
-"Nice," the summery hip-hop collaboration from Basick, G2 and Hwasa of MAMAMOO
-Oh My Girl's new reggae-pop single "Listen to My Word (A-ing)" featuring Skull and Haha

Plus in our Deep Cuts section, we have a discussion about the reports that China is considering putting restrictions and bans on K-pop promotions in the country after South Korea's decision to install an American-made defense system. 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.

Vote on your favorite new release from the week until next week's episode when we'll reveal the winner!
