Don’t get us wrong–we love Psy. Love him. Ric and I are probably responsible for at least 300,000 of those millions of YouTube video hits, and we NEVER get tired of the ubiquitous “horse dance”. However, all good things come to an end, and sometimes you need a break from even the most epic of music videos. So, for your listening pleasure, we offer seven KPop alternatives to “Gangnam Style”–songs that, despite their lack of horse dance, are pretty catchy and definitely worth a listen. Or twenty.

The Korean government wants Korean alcohol companies to tone down the use of young celebrities in ‘sexually suggestive’ ads reportedly aimed at young Koreans on the net.

Episode 27 meets us on a high after finding ourselves linked to for a blog recommendation. YAY! We’re almost famous. Ahem, anyway, this week there was a lot of non-news released, but we power through it all anyway to get to our somewhat surprisingly in depth free talk, a bit more silly and fun than normal.
The show must go on, come hell or high water; and while the western part of the world is being pummeled by Hurricane Irene, my neck of the woods is being tortured by a typhoon; but I’m a lot luckier than DameDrFoxyBrown, because I still have internet. It isn’t fun to do an episode without my partner in crime, but like I said, the show must go on… but don’t worry, we’ll be back with a real episode later in the week once D gets her internet back.
So now, enjoy the newest releases Kpop has to offer. Music starts NOW!
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.
