Devan joins us again to discuss American cosplay versus Japanese cosplay. She gives all the gory details of anime conventions in Japan, and you will be shocked at the differences! You can find Devan at @baird_de and www.youtube.com/c/dabbledevan.
We discuss SHINee's newest album, The Story of Light, with longtime SHINee fan (and our longtime friend!) Chan. We break down the album track by track while trying not to fangirl too hard. Chan also talks about seeing SHINee perform in Japan.
We talk with Kpop merchandise creators Jessica and Amanda about second generation Kpop. Why is it so good? Who are our faves? What do we miss and how does it compare to Kpop today? Find out! You can find Jessica's vinyl decals at JebekaStudios and Amanda's enamel pins at verynicedesigns.
We interview Scott Hunt, the creative director behind Arby's iconic Instagram page. He talks about the process of creating nerdy papercraft using only Arby's packaging. Check out Scott's work on Arby's Instagram and behind the scenes photos on his website, www.scottandrewhunt.com.
We reflect on new summer Kpop music, Kyle reviews Red Velvet's new EP Summer Magic, and we take a journey back to 2013 via Grow Radio to the original version of Seoulmates. You can listen to our old radio playlists on Spotify! Just search Seoulmates Throwbacks.
We break down the drama unfolding from the Cube Entertainment dating scandal involving Hyuna and E'Dawn and discuss “rules” and commoditization in the Kpop industry. Let’s all agree to treat idols like people and not objects, OK?
