KPop Podcast - Episode 46 – Gone Too Soon


Whitney Houston, inspiration to a generation of singers passed away yesterday in LA at the age of 48. The cause of her death is currently still under investigation. As I’m typing this the Grammy Awards are minutes away from starting and have likely cobbled together a quick tribute to her. It is a tremendous loss in the music community & that resonates with us as well.

Free Talk:
CNN deigned to write about the Hallyu wave (and really they hosted the Financial Times’ Christian Oliver’s piece on Kpop) here, and in the piece they mentioned the negative side of the Hallyu wave much like 101 East did. Like the reaction to 101 East, people decided to hate on CNN, so here we are again to shake our heads at fandom.
