Here is your opportunity to join the KpopWise team! Since the site is called "Kpop" Wise, applicants need to be well versed in K-pop other than a few artists. We are looking for staff that will write about K-pop music, news, reviews, events, and trends. Staff positions are remote and can reside anywhere in the world but must understand English enough to write an article.

The following positions are open on a rolling basis:

– You do not have to be a super-experienced writer. The KpopWise senior staff are willing to coach you.

TRANSLATORS – If you are able to translate news articles that have not already been written into English and re-posted somewhere else, or translate videos of Kpop artists responding to our interview questions, then this is the position for you.

VIDEO EDITORS - If you are experienced in video editing this could be the position for you. Video editors create kpop feature videos, edit interview content, and more.

PHOTOGRAPHERS - If you are a photographer with a professional camera feel free to apply to be a part of the team. Photographers will shoot concerts and events in their area on the behalf of KpopWise.

Currently, these positions are volunteer only.

  • We give you the opportunity to interview artists on behalf of KpopWise!
  • We give you the opportunity to introduce us to fresh or underrated artists!
  • Great experience especially, if going into journalism or media.
  • Build your writing portfolio.
  • Get references as a thank you for all your hard work and contributions!
  • Media passes to concerts and events!
Serious inquiries in joining the team ONLY. We do NOT randomly hand out press passes to people just because they want to see their favorite artists!
