Have you guys know this website or heard of it before? This website is for all of the kpop news for English speaking people. At first I thought this website was useful for the kpop news. But as I went on and I noticed (not only me) that the writers of the articles are very biased and they tend to put negative comments on it. Since I'm a YG artists' fan, I usually noticed that the writer especially Johnnydorama always have to put negative comments about YG artists on his articles. The website is like anti-YG. And they tend to be SNSD and other SM biased. They would usually start fan wars because of what they wrote on their articles.

One thing I can agreed on this website is that they post lots of new articles for the international fans to read. But I just don't like how they would have to be so biased some certain companies and groups. They have no respect toward groups, company, and fans. The grammar's on the articles tends to have mistakes. Have any of you guys noticed about this website before? And please I'm trying to prove my point about their problems on their website and not trying to put them down.

If this is duplicate which I doubt it please delete it.

Of course Allkpop is biased. They all have different opinions and thoughts about groups. It's not just some robot :O. But what I hate the most is when Allkop twist the information, or they show wrong information.

Basically what she said^
They are biased cause actual users apply for the job and writes the articles, so allkpop shouldn't be taken all seriously.
Then again, everyone has their bias so i don't blame them using harsh tones on people they don't like. They're just doing their jobs even if they don't like whoever it is. Again, everyone is entitled to their own opinions. If i don't like what i've read, i ignor them.
Yes they make millions of grammar mistakes and spelling mistakes (like peoples names for gods sake -_-) but we all do. Plus our brains are smart enough to figure out what they mean.
What i don't like is how some people don't even get their information correctly (which is pissing btw >_>) or translates it wrong.
Then again, we're human.

For if I had a dollar every time Allkpop says "garners interest with (her past photos)"
~(onto the serious note)

I wouldn't say their biased against YG. Their was a lot of writers who anticipated for comebacks, CF , Video's , Teasers about YG and talked how amazing the YG family is. Everywhere you'll always get biased people with their opinion which is why you spam your opinion saying how its wrong to do that , then comment until you get a 30+ like rating.

As everyone above me has said. Allkpop can feed the false information . What I truly dislike about that site is how they are halfhearted (writers, listeners ) they don't take the time to understand the idols as their site is suppose to show that. "Breaking Kpop celebrity gossip and NEWS .
I remember the fail Orange caramel debut video where the writer spelled Lizzy as Rizzy and Raina as someone else.
At times I really hate when my opinion doesn't agree with Allkpop ,With everyone who just feeds of the writer and follows it like its the right thing and your opinion is wrong. I can't put my finger on it but I remember when Allkpop bashed on the new groups and everyone seemed to agree when I found it really good.(but that is just my opinion)

I understand that Allkpop is trying to act like the normal players but it sounds very philosophical and aimed towards whatever article it is and gets the users to agree with them.

That is all I have to say about the site. Overall the most things that I enjoy watching are the K-chart award countdowns. (always a hassle to find who debuted on this day and that day) .

Only recently have I noticed their biased perspective myself. Before the current website change of allkpop, they had decent articles which explained facts clearly but now pfft. Now they bring up unneccessary information into their articles to try and cause divisions and flame wars between fans. Its annoying.

Example Failed Article ~ http://www.allkpop.com/2010/08/japanese-fans-could-not-recognize-sunny-without-makeup

I miss the old allkpop.

Yeah and I think as of right now, they give out real kpop news like 2ne1's comeback without any of the writers' opinions. But they also puts a lot of stupid and useless news too. I only been to that website since May 2010, and it changed a lot as of right now. I heard a lot of people say that the writer aka Johnnydorama used to call Bigbang "GAY" and a lot of mean stuffs about them and other idol groups which are untrue. People do report the problems to the moderators n he stopped.

^ LOL.


Yes, of course they are.. I HATE allkpop but its the only the way I can get all my kpop news -__- I really hate how they put their own opinions in the articles.. 1. No one cares 2. No one wants to hear them 3. They're mostly negative. And! Once someone wrote an article completely on their opinion.. ):<

I agree. That's why I sometimes verify with another kpop news site (as long as they didn't source their information from allkpop).

I shouldn't be enjoying this thread as much as I am.

I'm biased in what I say because I work under a competitor kpop website. But even the kpop site I operate under works cooperatively with other kpop websites.

AKP, from my experience, is very driven to gain a monopoly over kpop news for the international community, and will use whatever methods to get to that point. It appears to me that, for them, the ends justify whatever the means. We have had a few of their members defect to us for that very reason.

We've also touched base with a web programmer who had his work intellectually abused. He provided akp with a sample of his work in order to gain a paid deal with akp. Akp took his sample design, used it on their site, and cut communication with him.

Though for all the bad things that I've said, akp holds a couple gems. I have a friend that writes for akp, and she writes objectively to the best of her ability. For her to get the writer position at akp wasn't easy-- there is stiff competition for the writer positions. She has, however, been instructed to spin stories to become more sensationalist. And Alex, (alikstae or ah rex) is a nice guy who produces some pretty high quality fan mixes. But he's very much akp's dog.

AKP is like fox news presenting a fair and balanced picture of the news. Maybe not that bad. But AKP exercises sensationalism whenever there's an easy opportunity.

But like any good public citizen, we ought to diversify our news sources. May I suggest: soompi, omgkpop, seoulbeats, dailykpop, kpoplive, babelpop, or the dozens upon dozens of indie kpop blogs?

Once again, what I wrote is very biased because of the industry I work in.

Allkpop is an anti-Korean site. Korean TV and news paper(SBS, and DongA Ilbo) reported Allkpop as anti-Korean.

Allkpop.com makes money by distortion, fabrication, and making fun of K-pop and Koreans. Allkpop is an anti-Korea site blamed by Korean media. Allkpop is an anti-Korean site manipulating international kpop fans.

Look at allkpop articles insulting Kpop and Korean artists (click to see to see a close-up photo):










The admin (and CEO) of Allkpop.com hates K-pop. Allkpop just makes money by distortion, fabrication, joking around at K-pop and Koreans. And he wrote "I am a super genius". His mentality is in question.









This article was written in 2010. Don't be fooled by Allkpop's lie that they only wrote unprofessional long time ago and now they are not like that any more. They are manipulative liars fooling Kpop fans to make more money and spread hatred on Koreans.
