K-pop Fandoms: Source: Beyond Hallyu
k-pop chronicles is project with one mission: to collect fan accounts about their favorite K-pop groups and artists. The k-pop chronicles site seeks to become the world’s only repository for fan narratives, but it needs YOU to submit your fan narratives. The project accepts written and video narratives of your attitudes and opinions about your favorite K-pop artists. It does not accept fan fiction. Because of ethical concerns, the project only accepts written and video narratives from individuals 16 and over.
Creating Your Fan Narrative
In order to submit your fan narrative, you first have to create it. Submissions should be in English (or subtitled in English for video submissions), and should not include profanity, mature or inappropriate content, or bashing of other K-pop artists or fandoms (this is for a general audience). Fans may submit more than one narrative, but each submission should focus on only one artist/group. You may submit a written or video submission:
Written submissions: Written submissions should be 500-750 words in length and created in Word (or with a similar word processing software, including Google Docs).
Video submissions: Video submissions should be no longer than 3 minutes.
For each submission, fans should identify ONE group or solo artist and talk about the following:
- How did you become a fan of the chosen group/artist?
- What is your favorite song OR video and why?
- How do you show your support for your favorite group/ artist? Do you participate in activities like: comeback projects, Twitter trending, concerts, writing on a blog/running a Tumblr, fanmade video, album reviews, cover dance teams, YouTube channels, lyrics translation/interpretation, etc)?
- What are one or two of your most important memories related to your chosen group/artist? This can be a live performance, performance or appearance on a music show, variety show, fan meet, interview, etc.
You will be able to add the URL of an image of your chosen artist/group to be used with your account at the submission site.
Submitting Your Narrative
After you complete your narrative, you can submit it two ways:
Written submissions: Visit the submission site for written narratives, where you will complete the consent form, copy and paste your narrative and submit the URL for the image of your favorite group.
Video Submissions: Visit the submission site for video narratives, where you will complete the consent form, submit the URL for the image of your favorite group and upload your video.
