Our Mission & Goals

Kpopsource is a kpop community created to address the need for a reliable social & kpop platform for individuals to share/discuss information on the latest trends in the world of kpop. Kpopsource is listed 2nd on Feedspots top 10 kpop forum, which depicts the level of impact on the kpop community.

Our Founding.
Kpopsource was envisioned and created by @Ryujin around 2018 in response to foreseeing a continuation of the online toxicity in kpop communities. Before that, @Ryujin went around various kpop communities and found out the hard way that none of them were friendly and a positive place to have discussions. @Ryujin decided to start a blog called ksource, and slowly grew to a small online community where a group of kpop fans shared their love & thoughts about kpop. @Ryujin ,@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 tend to the community needs daily, and creative events churned out by the events team.

What is the mascot about?



Before @Ryujin formed kpopsource, she used to be a huge blackpink fan but over the years she grew to love many other kpop groups such as ITZY, WJSN,TWICE & many more. The mascot/logo is a tribute to that past of her & is a close likeness to how she looks in real life.

What separates us from other kpop sites?
Kpopsource is not hosted on unlimited shared hosting, instead, kpopsource is hosted on a modern bare metal server. Kpopsource's administration believe each and every one of our community members deserve the best experience when they are on our website so they decided not to be a profit driven site from the beginning. Kpopsource tech admins are available daily to resolve any server/site issues that may arise from time to time. Kpopsource is entirely non profit & community driven, all events & features are planned according to the community preference. The staff team are volunteers in making kpopsource the best kpop forum community out there. The site is also powered by a search back-end which allows 2 letter searches that is unlike anything out there. Kpopsource is capable of handling thousands of users online at the same time after years of tuning by @Ryujin . @Ryujin is a Linux server administrator with a history in the server hosting industry with extensive knowledge in the inner workings of a server should Kpopsource encounter any technical issues.

Our Staff Team
Here at kpopsource, 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. @Ryujin has decided from day 1 that the staff team should operate as a family structure instead of the traditional forum hierarchy.

Kpopsource have one of the largest active moderating teams compared to other communities to ensure our site is a positive environment.
