2PM & 2NE1′s comeback in the same week, and more serious news for fans of YG family took precedence. Unfortunately, the free talk in this episode is quite serious and weighty. We also apologize for being late this week, but there was a typhoon in Manila that made recording on our usual day quite difficult.
If you haven’t heard the news yet, the past two days have been a sort of “I can’t believe this has happened and the impact hasn’t hit me yet” kind of fog. Bekah (Baby Girl in the middle of that banner pic), one of the founding members of After School, and the former maknae has left the group, the second member to “Graduate”. This episode is dedicated to her and her time as a member.
We’re trying something different for this episode, mostly because I’m going to be out of town and presumably away from a computer and a microphone this weekend. But on the other hand, hey, early episode.
Welcome to the episode that falls apart because we suddenly realized that what we had lined up for Free Talk was not good enough, so we had to improvise, badly. The rest of the episode is good probably.
In episode three we delve into the news of the week.
We also talk about several big name producers in Mainstream Kpop: E-Tribe, Shinsadong Tiger and Brave Brothers and we pose the following question. What does an artist have to do wrong (morally, ethically or legally) that would cause you to lose faith in an artist and stop supporting them?
