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 by @Tiffany around 2018 in response to foreseeing a continuation of the online toxicity in Kpop communities. Before that, @Tiffany went around various Kpop communities and found out the hard way that none of them were friendly and a positive place to have discussions. @Tiffany started a blog called ksource, which slowly grew into a small online community where a group of Kpop fans shared their love & thoughts about Kpop. @Tiffany & a couple of allkpop users 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 launched, the active staff team tends to the community needs daily, and creative events churned out often by the events team.

What is the mascot about?



Before @Tiffany 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, and TWICE & many more. The mascot/logo is a tribute to that part of her & is a close likeness to how she looks in real life.

What separates us from other Kpop sites?
Kpopsource is not on unlimited shared hosting. Instead, we hosted kpopsource on a modern bare metal server. Kpopsource's administration believes every one of our community members deserves 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. Kpop source is community-driven. All events & features are planned according to the community preference. The staff team is volunteers in making kpopsource the best Kpop forum community out there. The site is powered by a search back-end that allows 2 letter searches that is unlike anything out there. Kpopsource can handle thousands of users online at the same time after years of tuning. @Tiffany is a Linux server administrator with a history in the server hosting industry with extensive knowledge of the inner workings of a server should Kpopsource encounter any technical issues. We list our server hardware specifications below.

Main Server Specification
AMD EPYC 7452
32 Dedicated Cores (3.35 GHz)
DDOS Protection (All Layers)
64 GB DDR4-RAM (ECC)
500 GB NVME Storage

Backup Server Specification

2 Virtual Core (3.35 GHz)

8 GB DDR4-RAM (ECC)
3 TB SSD Storage

1 Virtual Core
DDOS Protection (All Layers)
2 GB DDR4-RAM (NON-ECC)
20 GB SSD (Samsung)

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 is helping with awards, graphics & events. @Tiffany has decided from day 1 that the staff team should operate as a family structure instead of the traditional forum hierarchy. Kpopsource's primary goal is to make the community a fun, safe & productive environment for users to have fun at & have productive discussions about everything KPOP. Kpopsource has one of the most active moderating teams compared to other communities to ensure our site is a positive environment.
