Simon and Martina and back from Japan this week and ready to get back to the world of K-pop.

What's trending this week? Old school K-pop!

  • Thanks to a hugely popular TV show Infinity Challenge, old school K-pop from the 90’s and early 00’s has resurged among the Korean public
  • The show encouraged old K-pop artists and groups to reform and perform a special showcase for the program too!

What's Simon and Martina’s view on old school K-pop?

  • The guys talk mid-00’s groups like Super Junior and TVXQ starting the new wave of K-Pop and groups like SHINee making their debut in 2008.
  • They also compare old school fans (like fans of H.O.T, etc.) to modern K-pop fans (BTS, VIXX, EXO) and fan culture.
