    ‎( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    This is very thirsty explicit episode of the Kpopcast. We had to cut a lot of thirsty content (yes, even more) and theory crafting to keep this episode from becoming infinity long; but we think this should be a good ride. Please use adult discretion or supervision before sharing with others.

Basil Noodles ,

Love this podcast

Good time for Kpop and I looking forward each week.

NiteowlsDaughter ,

Daebak? No longer.

I have to be honest, I tried very very hard to enjoy this show and I did for awhile. They always have entertaining mixes and interesting guests and points of views for the songs and some of the host I admire. But sadly I find some of the host to be disingenuous.

I’m sure all podcast and YouTube channels are very well scripted at times, most good shows can do it enough to where you don’t notice anything. Kpopcast feels like I’m at a table reading or that they are simply there to go through bullet points. Who ever their writer is needs to work on the scripts better. And I’m not talking about the skits either. Baby Shark was actually a great episode.

The reactions and reviews just don’t feel real but instead feels rehearsed at times, by some host.

Although the format is clever and mixing is nice I just wish the same amount of love and care was made by the host when they actually spoke. It’s either very calm spoken to over the top. It was fun but got old very fast.

dwtang ,

Love this podcast format!

As a newer Kpop fan, I really enjoy this format of analyzing Songs. It’s fun to listen to the hosts’ opinions, hear clips of the songs, and also get updates about hot topics in Kpop. I’ve listened to a few episodes so far, and it’s both allowed me to appreciate some of my favorites more and also exposed me to new music as well!
