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

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.

General K-Entertainment Websites/Blogs/Forums

Translated Netizen Content

Korean Newspaper & Websites (in English)

Sites you should avoid

  • allkpoop - Ever since the Ailee nude picture scandal the self-proclaimed premier source for all the latest K-pop celebrity gossip is a banned site here at OMONA. Submitted posts with content from their site will get rejected!

  • Koreaboo - to quote CEO-nim shanny_w, "Koreaboo is someone we are careful with since sometimes they print iffy stuff and sometimes we repost it and get an angry email from someone threatening us to take it down." So before you submit a post from Koreaboo, try and find the same article on another site.

Are you guys sure about KpopStarz? There's nothing wrong with them, but I've seen some of their stories include fan comments, via Twitter, if I remember correctly. (Then again, I'm not sure why I'm complaining, but whatever.)

you can include fan comments in your posts but you have to mention them in your sources as well!

Thank you for the heads up!

I never know if KpopStarz is legit when I see their articles. It reads like some computer-generated content, that lifts from various other articles.

That's why I stopped going over there. Their stuff (to me) seems to be copied and pasted from other sites with some Twitter responses for good measure. Most of the articles I read over there seem like they were written by inexperienced writers. I could do a better job and I'm far from legit.
