Music around the world in the eyes of many critics, fans and people working in the industry see a change in the creativity of music. The Korean music industry seems to be no different. A while ago, allkpop made a post about “Is the Korean music industry losing it’s creativity?”. In response to this, the writers at Candy Nine and earcandyexpress have made a second collab post together on this topic. Our first one was done for a review on SHINee’s Lucifer album.
Remember I wanted to create a site for people to do fanfiction that was better than Winglin? Well, I’m actually really glad I don’t have to anymore. After all that planning, I gave up and I’ve been pretty busy in my life. But recently one of my friends told me about this site: Asianfanfics and it is much better than Winglin.
It’s amazing because the site started two years ago in April and no-one or myself has ever found it. I’ve heard it’s only got quite popular now. The site was created by a guy named Jason who originally made the site because Winglin kept deleting his girlfriend’s stories (which is why I never post on Winglin anyways). The site evolved from just Taiwanese artists fanfics to a range such as Kpop and Jpop artists. Sadly, his girlfriend died a year later of pneumonia leaving Jason to run the site by himself. However, what I find sweet is that he says “it’s a way for me to honor her memory.” I found more about an interview he had with Time Vault here.
What I like about this site is that it is much easier to search for stories than Winglin ever did. You can even suggest tags!! I’m glad Jason has made such a great site, it’s easier for me to upload fanfics!!
For anyone who wants to know, my account is here and so far, I’ve only posted one fanfic which is a Jay Park, Junsu, Taecyeon, OC story called Tik Tok. If you’re interested in reading, subscribing or being friends just go onto my profile.
Recently, apart from my usual posts about the J/K-Industry and Dance covers, I have started receiving penpal letters. Living in London, I’ve just been getting ready for University and hopefully working so I’ve been a bit bored despite how many fanfics I have to do! Currently, I have four penpals. One from New York, one from Toronto and two from Japan (but honestly, one of them hasn’t sent me a letter since March >_
Gonna be posting monthly dances instead of weekly now. Enjoy!
