Are the Stays okay? Stray Kids’ Billboard Profile and Kpop Journalism

The Stray Kids billboard profile story included some bad tropes that were likely born out of lazy journalism, but there’s a troubling precedent set when fans dictate editorial. We hear remarks from Todd Inoue who also published a Stray Kids profile story a few years back. In this episode we discuss this issue, along with other K-pop song recommendations and hallyu things to check out. Genius Korea founder, Syed Saquib, joins and offers his recommendations & insights.Join us on Slack:     Our Newsletter:   Hit replay playlist:  HIT REPLAYS (TOP K-POP SONGS):첫사랑(CSR) ‘첫사랑 (Pop?
