Hello. My name is Kai. It’s nice to meet you.
I love the K-pop music industry and am working hard to one day work in it as a social media manager.
However, you may be wondering: Why K-pop? What’s so good about it and why a social media manager instead of an idol?
Well, I’ll be happy to tell you why.
I have been a big fan of various K-pop groups and the genre as a whole since 2006. It’s been my favourite genre all these years. I love the music. I love the creativity of the videos. I love the outfits and makeup and hair.
But most importantly, I love the sense of community. The way that this small foreign genre has brought people from around the world together.
K-pop has brought friends and couples together and inspired people to better themselves through learning new languages or joining a gym or dance studio. K-pop fans are constantly being inspired to create art and encourage each other.
And this all comes from the love that fans share for the same Idol/group.
Even I have made some deep and meaningful friendships with people from various countries.
And while Idols are the main focus and the face of K-pop, I have no desire to be one. But I do want to be a part of the support staff that help these talented men and women create the friendly and welcoming communities known as fandoms.
I don’t like being the center of attention but I want to be a part of the team that supports the Idols that bring happiness to so many people around the world.
Is there a career path that inspires you or makes you want to be a part of it?
Do you have a hobby that helped you find a wonderful and inviting community to be a part of?
What’s your favourite genre of music and why?
