    Jason Derulo-o-o-o Doesn't Need Your Clout

    Jason Derulo-o-o-o Doesn't Need Your Clout

    NYAN's back with more navel-gazing K-pop discussion, courtesy of Ashe, Nat, and Jemin! We try to figure out what exactly the marketing plan is for the BTS-inspired K-drama "Youth," and who did Jason Derulo forget to thank? Plus, black k-pop singers — are they simply reclaiming what's already been taken?

    Blackpink's Back, All Right!

    Blackpink's Back, All Right!

    Since Ashe has a case of the (non-COVID) sniffles, Jemin and Nat take over hosting duties for this episode, which, maybe unexpectedly, harbors quite a bit of Blackpink content - what with The Album, the documentary, the fan scuffle with Cardi B, and the highly overrated nurse outfit. But no worries for non-Blinks, there's plenty of K-pop news left to cover what with Jay Park reading thirst tweets, SuperM becoming a legit part of the Marvel Universe, and ELFs determined to keep the remaining members of Super Junior single well into their 50's. It's a jam-packed episode, so make sure to listen and send us some feedback if you like what you hear!

    The Cupid Trouble

    The Cupid Trouble

    In the one-parter that should be a two-parter, Ashe, Nat and Jemin dive into the most notable K-pop stories of the past week, wherein problematic idols get called out, Everglow causes a national incident, and Pledis demonstrates a fundamental unawareness of copyright law.

    The No Safety Zone, Part 2

    This episode is the continuation of last week's "The No Safety Zone" in which we ponder Hallyu's surge of popularity in Japan, K-pop's supposed socialist agenda, and whether or not the pandemic has good ol' MTV pandering to us for ratings. Plus — a special guest!
