About KpopWise

KpopWise officially launched in April 2020. We strive to be a reliable and unbiased Kpop news source curated by experienced Kpop fans. Our objective is to provide updates about Kpop artists, especially those without much international coverage.

The name KpopWise has two meanings --  
1. It can relate to a topic specifically such as “What are you listening to Kpop wise?”
2. To expand one’s knowledge of Kpop music. 

KpopWise is available on multiple platforms such as Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, and Spotify. Emails can be sent to kpopwise@gmail.com 

About Ciera (Editor-in-Chief) 

Ciera has been a fan of Korean pop culture for 15 years. She co-founded the international music website TuneN2IM, short for Tune into International Music in May 2009. TuneN2IM was originally a forum for artists all over the globe to promote their works and eventually involved into an entertainment website, which hosted interviews with various artists including Korean singers, songwriters and producers. 

Ciera hosted a segment on a popular Asian music podcast AsianPopAddict from 2011-2012 called “Nugu Corner” in which she introduced the audience to rookie or underrated Kpop idol groups. From October 2013 until August 2018 she was contributor to the now defunct Asian media streaming site Dramafever. In February 2017 she began writing for moonROK with Hannah and Riley.

In May 2017 she became part of the editorial team for KpopStarz with Eddie, in which she created content such as articles, interviews and videos. She took a break from Kpop writing between August 2017 to March 2020 to focus on her graduate school studies. Although she is largely a 2nd-3rd generation Kpop fan and most of her personal favorites have disbanded or on hiatus, she is actively keeping herself up to date on all the current acts.
