This episode of A Bit of Culture presents us with yet another thrilling tripartite of culture commentaries; this time discussing Korean pop, news consumption in Covidian times, and what you may find in a Russian vault. First up is BFMer Julian Yap, waxing lyrical over K-pop darlings BTS; albeit late to the party, we found to be absolutely forgivable. Coming from a slightly older demographic compared to a typical fan of the enigmatic Seoul boyband, she unpacks some thoughtful observations; acknowledging the devotion of their die-hard fans coupled with a sense of social responsibility by the band themselves. Next, Kam presents his conundrum about doom-scrolling in these trying times. With news of the world pronouncing its negativity more than ever before, the trio agrees that perhaps going offline for a while isn't such a bad idea. And lastly we round off this edition with Dr. Ann Lee's fascinating tale of Russian dentist Val Kolpakov and his grand collection of toothpastes. Yes, it is a thing.
