The Wild World of K-pop Fanfiction

Welcome to Not Your Average Netizens' first K-pop Fandom Forum, special episodes devoted to discussing topical issues related to K-pop in all its intricacies.

Yes, fanfiction has pushed its way out of the dark corners of fandom to become widely recognized as a powerful creative force in fan communities. K-pop fanfics, in particular, have grown more numerous; but is that healthy for the fandom? Is...


B.I., Big Hit, and Black K-pop Fan Backlash Part 2

It’s the darkest K-pop timeline as we discuss the complete dissolution of the Greek tragedy that is YG Entertainment on this episode of Not Your Average Netizens. It’s a trash fire of such immense magnitude that we needed TWO episodes to talk about it! Is B.I. a misunderstood genius and will YG get away with all his shady activity (probably)? In part two, we continue the lighthearted discourse as we delve into issues of K-pop and colorism (that will likely be covered again). Is being a fan...

Kill This Boy With Love

We’re back to our regularly(?) scheduled programming!. And just in time for the 2019 K-pop invasion of America, as western music execs try their damndest to make BTS and Blackpink happen in the USA.

NYAN Rewind: Let the Kpop Games Begin

There were some issues with audio this episode towards the beginning. We apologize, and if it's too much of a nuisance, fast forward about 10 minutes or so.
