What do we do?
Bournemouth University KPOP Society is an inclusive community for people who share an interest in Korean Pop Music (KPOP/K-POP), performance, and youth culture. We are a student run and still a relatively new society, founded in 2017 with initially only 15 members, to 2018/19 with a large growth to 60 members, with 2019/2020 increasing to 70 due to the increasing popularity and success of KPOP, we are hoping to continue this growth in 2021/22.
We meet Wednesday fortnightly over Zoom or inside the university partaking in a variety of activities, such as; games with the chances to win prizes, fun quizzes, random dance plays, debates, and lots of opportunities to try Korean food.
If dance is something you are interested in, during our fortnightly dance lessons, we cover a range of different dance styles from a wide variety of KPOP artists either boy group, or girl group. Such as BTS, BLACKPINK, Twice, NCT, Jay Park, Hyolyn, etc. We as a group teach dances for everyone over Zoom, ranging from beginners to experienced dancers. With the ability to compete in Kpop University Nationals, and friendly Showcases.
Before the pandemic in 2019/20 we ran some social events like laser tag, Mini Golf, food socials at a range of restaurants and society club night. We are hoping we can do some of these activities and more regularly to allow members to socialise and share their love for KPOP once the rules and regulations have been eased in regards to Covid-19.
BU KPOP society welcomes anyone regardless of their nationality, interest, age, and whether you are new to KPOP, or have been a stan since day one we welcome everyone to our society, judgement free! We had such a great time last year as a society and we are looking forward to seeing lots of new faces joining us this year.
The membership fee is only £5 additional costs may be applied depending on future society events/field trips. If you have paid the membership fee, please come find us on Facebook BU KPOP Society 21/22!
