Explanations/Editor’s Notes:

31:41 – 31:59 IU Bylak Teaser Image*

– Might actually be pronounced By lack after IU released teaser called HILAC on 2/23/2021

36:23 – 38:09 BTS Unplugged*

– Will air at 9pm est on 2/23

44:52 – 46:00 iKON Digital Single*

– Will be available on 3/3 for clarification. Also, I can’t believe I blanked on Rhythm-ta

46:01 – 49:25 More Kingdom Talk*

– I forgot about Rowoon’s back injury. SF9 has a bit of a disadvantage as well when it comes to not having the full roster.

51:57 – 52:13 More Corrupt Execs*

– I meant common within music streaming companies.

52:14 – 52:24 Another Big Hit Boy Group*

– I don’t really have any thoughts on this news. It’s kinda whatever. I’ll wait for the show to have more of a solid opinion on the group itself. I think Big Hit keeps producing/funding boy groups versus girl groups because they’ve had better success with them financially speaking. I don’t think they’re anti-girl groups.

52:25 – 52:55 Ending*

– Normally I’d talk about what blog posts and other things I’m working on but with this podcast episode running late, I’m behind on things. I’ll have more info in the next ep.
