The Kraze is a K-Pop news source aiming to help bring international fans closer to the action. Our primary goal is to provide content like exclusive idol interviews, major international K-Pop event coverage, and the latest information on Korean culture & trends. We hope to provide a closer and more in-depth connection to the K-Pop scene for international English-speaking fans, while also giving idols a comfortable outlet for them to connect and communicate with their global audience. We specialize in all realms of Korean influence, including fashion, beauty, culture, history, and entertainment. We also aim to provide an outlet for smaller groups with less press internationally to reach their fans on a global scale.
Yes, The Kraze is a media outlet, but we're different from all the others. We’re an independent outlet with an all-female executive staff that keeps the operation running, and we want to give fans an opportunity to voice their personal and honest views on the latest news and trends in K-Pop. We’re a source written by the fans, for the fans. That doesn't mean we'll post just anything, though. We research and consider all sorts of opinions from fans just like you, only posting the ones that have facts to back them up. We aim to create a fun and positive atmosphere within the K-Pop community, helping more fans find an international fan community where they feel comfortable and welcome. Each of our members is just as passionate about the Hallyu Wave movement as our readers!
Since the K-Pop community is mainly comprised of high school and college-aged students, The Kraze's volunteer-based staff provides various opportunities for experience in publication, design and marketing. Staff positions are given the flexibility to work for us while still in school and/or working part- or full-time jobs. Working at The Kraze will help candidates grow valuable skills in the industry, all while getting the opportunity to connect with many of the major media companies in the international K-Pop community. In addition, candidates will learn transferable skills, such as working in a virtual team environment, self-management and clear communication skills. The experience that any candidate takes from working at The Kraze will help further career goals in any chosen field.
