    It's the unpopular K-pop opinions episode, well part 1! "Unpopular K-pop Opinions" is in our podcast name, so we thought we'd kick off season 3 with just that.

    In this episode, main host Bora and co-host Destiny discuss BLACKPINK's absence from the music scene and how it's similar to Rihanna's. In the second half of this episode, we turn the mic to you, the listeners. The two of us react to audience submitted unpopular opinions. We have more audience opinions to react to once co-host Lars gets back for part 2.
