Last we spoke about K-Drama, we dove into Sky Castle and how it illuminates the harsh pressures on Korean youth to be “successful” and suppress their feelings. The dramas we’re introducing today, Extraordinary Attorney Woo and Flower of Evil, approach this same topic through a criminal justice lens—what happens to people who cannot be high function…

We welcome K-pop journalists Crystal Bell and Todd Inoue for this discussion to weigh in on what they're seeing from the newsroom perspective. Links From The Ep: -The Intense And Dangerous Tr…
 
NewJean’s ‘cookie’ raised a lot of eyebrows. It was a song presented by teenage girls-mostly under the age of 16-singing lyrics that were partly interpreted as being sexual in nature amongst English-speaking listeners. It kicked off a debate that isn’t entirely new for k-pop, namely, the prevalence of sexualized minors in k-pop. What's driving this…

It’s time to be honest: K-Pop concerts in America are not always perfect. While there are a few high production value events, most are charging AAA prices - that sell out - for mediocre shows. Is it fair that fans around the world receive a lower quality experience, when K-Pop labels are bringing in more profits than ever? We had a full house of ex…

In late 2020, “K-pop fans” were praised as a socially conscious monolithic community who used fancams to flood watchdog apps, hijack racist hashtags, and to buy-out Trump rally tickets. Often k-pop movements were externally seen as moving in the name of BLM, but, if you actually spoke with black k-pop fans, you’d see that not all of these gestures …
