Do you troll the Internet for pictures of your bias? Watch dance versions of videos on YouTube? Share your opinions on a forum? Go to K-pop concerts?
This interactive session will uncover the complex world of K-pop fandom and give tips on how you can be a better fan! We’ll talk about the different kinds of fans and ways they interact with and support each other and their favorite K-pop artists and groups. We will also share how you can enhance your own fan experience by learning how to protect your original fan production (like fan art and fancam video), organize and properly attribute your stash of pictures collected from around the web, and properly share images and video.
