We now have a Beyond Hallyu Facebook group!

This is just a quick announcement to say we have created a new Facebook group. You can find it here.

At the moment, the group is focussed on the UK Korean entertainment fan community. It’s going to be somewhere where people can keep each other up-to-date with upcoming events as well as discussing Korean pop culture.

We decided to make it as we have noticed recently that large parts of the UK online fandom have become quite hostile and divided and we wanted to make something where everyone can feel welcome. It’s starting to reflect badly on everyone here which damages future opportunities for events and is unfair on the respectful majority who are being tarred with the same brush.

Because we have put our name on it, we will make sure the environment stays friendly. That doesn’t mean you can’t have disagreements and debates, it just means people should be able to expect not to receive abuse for having a differing opinion.

If that sounds like your kind of place, head on over and join up. Invite your friends too. The only thing we ask is that you abide by five simple rules to keep the atmosphere positive.

All the bullying and abuse we have seen lately is toxic. It’s not that hard to act decently towards each other.

And for all our non-UK readers, you can join but please be aware the discussions will be UK focussed. If you really want something more international, let us know in the comments and maybe we can develop that in future.

Join Beyond Hallyu – UK K-pop and Korean events here.
