Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

I suppose this technically falls under the purview of K-hip hop, but you’ll find fans discussing all sorts of Korean music under the broad umbrella of “K-Pop”.


Which is great for us, because Leessang has put out some great, great music over the years before they disbanded recently. If you like what you hear, I encourage you to check out some of their other classics, like Clown, I’m Not Laughing, and the evocatively titled The Woman Who Can’t Break Up, The Man Who Can’t Leave.

I thought that when Gary left Running Man, that meant the possibility of Leessang having a comeback and releasing more quality music.

What i did not expect is for Gary to marry and have a kid and for Gil to have a 2nd drunk drvimg scandal...sigh.
