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 40 YouTube playlist and read on for more on this week's topics:
This week we discuss...
-B.A.P's epic-yet-controversial comeback with "Skydive" and its accompanying 10-minute music video to promote the band's second full-length album Noir
-Mamamoo's also-controversial comeback with the soul-pop anthem "Décalcomanie"
-Hyolyn's "Paradise," the banging lead single from her new solo EP It's Me
Plus in our Deep Cuts section, we take a look at super-popular award show the 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards (more commonly known as MAMA) and give our predictions of who will win and who should win. 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.
