The Hallyu Project: KPK and HKP
Have you ever wondered what fans think about the groups they support? How are SONEs different from Blackjacks? Who exactly are fans of Aziatix? Why are there TripleChangjos, fans of SS501 and Shinhwa?
This is your chance to find out and be part of the process! iFans: Mapping K-pop’s International Fandom is an academic research project that seeks to understand fan opinions and collects information on global fandoms. It is conducted by Dr. Crystal S. Anderson, Ph.D. (aka CeeFu, friendly neighborhood Assistant Chief Editor for hellokpop). Dr. Anderson is working with hellokpop, the only K-pop media outlet partnering with academics as part of The Hallyu Project. Find out more about iFans here.
