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 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 36 YouTube playlist and read on for more on this week's topics:
This week we discuss...
- BTS' chart-topping comeback with Wings and the lead single "Blood Sweat & Tears"
- Legendary K-pop boy band Sechs Kies' long-awaited return with "Three Words"
- The debut of Pentagon with "Gorilla," the new boy band from Cube Entertainment
Plus in our Deep Cuts section, we discuss a reported "misogyny controversy" with G-Dragon and the tag's his new fashion label Peace Music One uses that reinforce outdated gender and societal norms. 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.
