Our Story
Kpopsource was founded by @Nayeon in early 2018. It was called ksource, and started as a blog and an online community where a group of kpop fans shared their love & ideas for kpop. @Nayeon ,@BLACKPINK & @notthatmarko banded together to launch kpopsource back in august 2018 & it became a hit to users who loved the friendly environment it provides, the active staff team is available daily to tend to the community needs.

Our Mission & Goals
Kpopsource is a kpop community created to address the need for a reliable social platform for individuals to share/discuss information on the latest trends in the world of kpop. Kpopsource is listed on Feedspots top 75 Kpop blogs, this goes ahead to depict the level of impact on the kpop community. Kpopsource will always evolve content that matter to the Kpop world.

Our Website Features/What separates us from the competition?
We are NOT hosted on cheap hardware/shared hosting, we are currently hosted on a dedicated server, we believe each and every one of our community members deserves the best experience when they are on our website, we offer a robust search system(2 letter searches) where no other KPOP communities offer. Our tech admins are available daily to resolve any issues, we also have a standby system admin who is monitoring our website through automated systems incase our website goes down, we also boast an active staff team who are active throughout the week. Our website is capable of handling thousands of users online at the same time excluding guests. We are not making kpopsource as a hobby website where we will simply give up if it fails, history has shown everyone at the time of our darkest period, we still kept on going. All our server's tech team are verified linux server specialists with history in the server hosting industry with extensive knowledge in LAMP stack.

Dual Xeon E5 2620 V4 (16 x 2.10 GHz )
128GB DDR4 Ram
2TB NVMe+2x2TB HD
1TBPS DDOS protection
Powered by LITESPEED Enterprise, Maria DB 10.3.14 & PHP 7.3.4


Our Staff Team
Here at kpopsource, our staff members work as a team for almost everything, the admins get involved in helping each team with their projects, even the moderation team are helping in awards, graphics & events, @Nayeon has decided from day 1 that the staff team should operate as a family unlike the traditional forum hierarchy, our main goal is to make this forum a fun, safe & productive environment for our users to have fun at & have productive discussions about everything KPOP. We have one of the largest active moderating team compared to other communities.

Hiiiii! Im Yseki, it says my title is flop. :pandamad:
That's correct. Everyone starts as a flop and they build themselves slowly and steadily.

Hint: Post 26 more times to sign up with an agency.
