Have you exhausted everything you wanted to do during quarantine? Or are you looking for something to listen to while studying, doing chores, or working but not quite sure about how else to expand your playlist?
Have you ever tried listening to podcasts?
Podcasts are a fun alternative to your music playlists or radio shows, making your daily tasks less mundane and more motivating. They get you inspired, learn new things you wouldn’t learn at school or work, or help you keep updated on events.
If you’re looking for a K-Pop-related podcast, we got you. Here are our recommendations:
Hosts and best friends Shannon and Angelica help K-Pop newbies navigate through the aspects of K-Pop. You’ll learn history about K-Pop and its subcultures, learn vocabulary words, and just fangirl with the hosts in general.
Emily Haydel is a K-Pop fan and discusses fan opinions over a variety of topics, like what’s it like being a fan of multiple groups, keeping up with K-Pop news, and being a fan artist.
Jae of DAY6 talks about anything under the sun, from the Mandela Effect and human clones to love languages and the benefits of being bilingual. A couple of episodes feature cameos from Eric Nam and AleXa.
YouTuber JREKML and media personality (and podcaster) Emily Haydel spend an hour drowning in their feels for new songs, K-Pop related confessions, and debates. Catch their interviews with K-Pop media personalities (like Danny Kim of DKDKTV and beauty YouTuber Edward Avila), as well as K-Pop idols like Amber Liu, A.C.E, KARD’s BM, and more.
Launched in April 2019, K-Pop star Eric Nam adds podcast host to his never-ending list of accomplishments. Here, he gives us an insider look at the K-Pop industry, reviews the latest releases, and interviews occasional artists.
(P.S. Eric also hosts a separate podcast, I Think You’re Dope, where he interviews personalities like author Jenny Han, Josh and Ollie of Korean Englishman & JOLLY, and ice dancers Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani.)
As the name implies, the podcast is hosted by Tablo of Epik High. It may not have a lot of K-Pop conversations on The Tablo Podcast, but it will have you laughing with Tablo’s humor, heartwarming stories, and geeky-worthy conversations.
This podcast is hosted by Jamie Park, also known as singer-songwriter Jimin. Here, she gives advice on sticky situations, like dealing with fake friends, love at first sight, and rejected gifts.
