Hallyujuku - Rabelly Podcast Network
About This Show
A simple tagline: Anything But Anime. Hallyujuku is a show about East Asian Pop Culture starring a pair of non-Asian goofballs. Petey Rave and Brandon Cooper (aka King Kaz) will cover everything from Music, Dramas, Food, and more with an honest and, at times, un-P.C. approach.

Episode 157 - Everybody's Wrong, Everybody's Dumb, Including Us
Dec 19 17
This week, we lament the loss of another seminal girl group, commend their label for getting their other group off of a sinking ship, discuss defamation law in Korea (kinda, be prepared, we ain't lawyers), and marvel at the determination of angry fangirls. All that, new tunes, and more!
(P.S.: This episode was recorded late last week and thus before the tragic passing of Kim Jonghyun. We haven't decided if and how we'll address our thoughts on these events. We send our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and to all the Shawols all over the world.)

Good kpop/ jpop reviews
This podcast is a great alternative to other kpop podcasts that are either inconsistent or fangirl/fanboy over idols. The hosts give a different view to idol activities and kpop, and do not only focus on the popular groups (plus they include jpop!). However the overall musical sensibility of the two much reminds me of Bruno Maderna’s music; you know it’s supposed to be important but you want to turn it off. Although I will commend them for continuing, and as long as no one ever eats on the podcast again, I will continue to download.
