Are Korean Male Idols the Cure to Asian American Emasculation?

Kpop Kollective‘s insight:

This article continues a scholarly trend of limiting discussions of masculinity in K-pop to the bishonen ideal. Doing so ignores the range of masculinites represented by K-pop artists and groups. If one looks at a series of concepts for any established male K-pop grouup, one will find that concepts change, and groups use images associated with a variety of masculinities. Aozora’s results may also be impacted by her small sample size. Opinions of K-pop fans are greatly influenced by other factors, including how long they have been fans and their prior experiences with other fandoms and other modes of Asian popular culture.
