The Korean entertainment industry is currently the most dangerous outbreak that has captured the hearts of fans all over the world. Everyone is now crazy over Korean pop (KPOP). Southeast Asians, once a region that love Chinese/Taiwanese dramas and Japanese pop music, are now in love and so much into Kpop, K-dramas, Korean food, and culture, these days.
KoreanUpdates was founded on 1st of March 2010 – with the hope of sharing sensational but truthful news through Twitter, Facebook and our website. KoreanUpdates is officially based in Jakarta, Indonesia. But even if this is the case, KoreanUpdates has wide audience range.
Our readers are mostly from Southeast Asian countries like Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, South Korea, and Vietnam. Through the years, we have also gained strong followers in the US and some European countries. This is why KoreanUpdates is written in English instead of the Indonesian mother tongue.
Since its launch, KoreanUpdates has been covering various events in Jakarta, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, and Los Angeles. To date, we have covered more than 60 press conferences, concerts, fan meets, and a lot more.
KoreanUpdates is one of the biggest Indonesian-based KPOP news portal today. On our Twitter account alone, we have an outstanding 77,000 followers worldwide and still counting.
KoreanUpdates is not just a news website, it also owns an online store and it is into publishing too. With all the latest developments in our company, we are gearing up to make KoreanUpdates bigger and better.
KoreanUpdates call its followers as “Jjangers.” Why? Jjang itself means the best, so our followers are indeed our besties and we are glad to have them with us!
