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 platform updates in order to keep up with modern technologies in this day & age.

Our Story
Kpopsource was founded by @IU in August 2018. Before that, 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. @IU ,@BLACKPINK & @notthatmarko then banded 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.

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 deserve the best experience when they are on our website. 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 also powered by a search back-end which allows 2 letter searches. 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. All our server's tech team are verified Linux server specialists with a history in the server hosting industry with extensive knowledge in the inner workings of a server.

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. @IU has decided from day 1 that the staff team should operate as a family structure instead of the traditional forum hierarchy. Our main goal is to make this community 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 to ensure our site is a positive environment.

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.
