Our Story

Kpopsource was founded by @Miyeon in early 2018. She went around various kpop communities and found out the hard way that none of them were friendly and a positive place to have discussions. She decided to start her own blog called ksource, and slowly grew to a small online community where a group of kpop fans shared their love & thoughts about kpop. @Miyeon ,@BLACKPINK & @notthatmarko planned together to launch kpopsource back in august 2018 & it became a hit to users who loved the friendly environment it provided when the site was launched, the active staff team available daily to tend to the community needs, and creative events churned out by the events team.

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, which depicts the level of impact on the kpop community. Kpopsource will always provide constant updates in order to keep up with modern technologies of the year 2019. Software upgrades which were hard/impossible in the past can be done in less than an hour, or even minutes. There are no excuses where an owner should should stick to the mentality "if it ain't broken, don't fix it". Kpopsource is our main priority, everything else is secondary.

What separates us from the competition?

We are NOT hosted on cheap hardware/shared hosting, instead 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, and we also have a standby system admin who is monitoring our website through automated systems in the case 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. We are not making kpopsource as a hobby website where we will simply give up if it fails, we have shown everyone since the site was founded on august 25th 2018, we 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.

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, and 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 teams 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.
