BH Podcast 1: What a Scandal! – 2014 in Review

This is the first ever episode of the Beyond Hallyu podcast. In this episode we try and make sense of the chaos that was 2014 in K-pop. From the high-profile group member departures (including EXO and Jessica) to the terrible lyrics and music videos (looking at you, Zico!) we ask: what were they thinking? We also talk about the best releases of the year in K-pop, indie and hip hop and discuss our favourite dramas.



Chris from Korean Indie also makes an appearance to tell us about his favourite music from 2014.

All the music in this episode comes from the fantastic Saebyeok. You can buy her full EP Rise From The Ashes via bandcamp.
