Jung Bong Choi and Roald Maliangkay solicit abstracts for an edited collection on K-pop.  What makes this call different from some of the collections already available on Hallyu is the focus on fandom.  

 

Fandom is central to K-pop, yet few studies have been conducted on fan activity and behavior in connection with the actual music culture of K-pop.  The collection also asks for submissions related to the history of idol bands and group identity, two aspects that are connected to the K-pop fan experience.  

 

Also, the collection describes Hallyu in its international context outside of East Asia, a welcome addition to work on Hallyu as a transnational movement.
