OMONA'S PICK: TOP SITES YOU SHOULD BE SOURCING FROM

Hello OMONA!


As a frequent submitter of posts (my record is 7 posts a day, yes I have no life) I know the struggle of finding good sources. Especially new users that want to submit a post but don't know where to get good information might choose not to post at all. But don't worry cause the good sis goshipgurl is here today to bring you an

updated list of sources that are
👍🏻MODS-APPROVED👍🏻


Our last post with a list of possible sources was in 2009, wtf. Since then many sites have shut down (R.I.P.), new ones have seen the light and others got banned *cough* akpoop *cough*. I took time out of my busy life (ha who am I kidding) and tracked down as many news sites as possible. I'm dividing this post into three categories: General K-Entertainment Websites/Blogs/Forums, Newspapers and Sites in English and Translated Netizen Content. You can also always post content from your oppa's Instagram, Twitter or Youtube, as long as you credit them! If you know other sites just drop them in the comments below and I'll add them to the list.

OP sure loves AJ

i think i've seen koreaboo shamelessly stealing posts from pannchoa, kpopkfans,kkuljaem , etc
so i would avoid their netizens posts too .... let's just avoid them forever :)

Dramabeans also only allow partial sharing.

I also sometimes browse koalasplayground for news about kdramas and k-actors/actresses, they allow partial sharing as well.

Other than r/kpop I also want to recommend r/koreanvariety for fast news. They also have weekly ratings posts with a lot of informations about new shows, etc.

i added both sites to the list, thanks!

http://www.koreanvarietyrecaps.com - I discovered this site quite recently. It's sort of like dramabeans but for variety shows?
http://knetizone.blogspot.com - this netizen translation site is older than pann-choa, but it isn't as updated. Thought I should mention it anyway since the translations are pretty good.
http://www.kpopbehind.com - site owner claims he's a kpop journalist. Idk if he's legit but I check this site regularly.
http://netizendrama.blogspot.com - new netizen translation site?
http://netizentown.blogspot.com - this one too, which I discovered just now

koreanvarietyrecaps is amazing, the author's writing style is great. It's kinda unbelievable that he does it all alone.

Netizentown also has a twitter, where they translate stuff.

i really just came here to make sure AKP was still banned tehehe... just came from there and sadly they're still up to their own dirty anti gg tricks. they got tired bullying Gfriend (although true to form they're still lazily kicking that horse..) so now they've set their spiteful aim at Pristin it seems.

....are you about to be a mod here?

Anyways good list! I remember a post got rejected for sourcing Koreaboo and I was confused as to why until I googled them. LOL.

....are you about to be a mod here?

haha no! why?
ive applied for a mod position in the past but now i think its better for me to be free and without any responsibilities haha

Moonrok is a reputable source afaik but they're often slow to post news

HiphopKR is a good source for just hiphop stuff
