    BLACKPINK's 'Risque' Music Video

    Hello Juicy Lemoners! Welcome to this week's episode!


    SEGMENT 1: BLACKPINK Nursing a Controversy
    - BLACKPINK's latest music video LoveSick has attracted some controversy this week after the Korean Nurse Union demanded a scene of Jennie wearing a nurse uniform was deemed 'sexualising' the profession.
    - Many Non-Korean fans don't understand how the outfit or scene was offensive but is it because we don't understand the culture and history of nurses in Korea?


    SEGMENT 2: Coming Out Day
    - We look back at how far we've come with the 'Coming Out' process and how more work is needed to normalise sexuality.
    SEGMENT 3: Recommendations

So Juicy

Love this show! The ep about fruit is a standout... more Rambutan content please. Phil and Tom have great chemistry and are a delight to listen to. Phil’s ep about his personal journey was great- hope we can hear Thomas’s soon!

Feel good and insightful

I’ve started working interstate (Tas) as an intern and it is a lot less diverse than Melbourne where I i’d spent all my life in. With the coronavirus hitting in the last few months and being away from all my asian fam and friends, this podcast has made me feel less alone in facing the racial tensions around me and in the media. So many interesting conversations and good vibes from the hosts! Keep it up guys xx
