Ottoke? Ottoke?! Ottoke!
After months of planning and countless hours of hard work, our dream of launching our very own Korean entertainment website has finally come true! We are so excited to release ottoKWORLD, which was made for YOU, the fan of all things Korean.
Why "ottoKWORLD"? "Ottoke (어떻게, pronounced oh-toh-kay)" is the Korean word meaning "how," and it is a commonly used expression for asking "what should I do" in Korean. Following the meaning of its namesake, ottoKWORLD is a website where fans of Korean pop culture can come together in an online community to better understand all things Hallyu. With guides, profiles, recommendations, and news updates, ottoKWORLD ultimately serves as your how-to-guide as you explore the addicting universe of Korean entertainment.
What topics can you expect from ottoKWORLD? K-Pop, K-Dramas, K-Beauty, and basically K-Everything! We'll be delivering the news and tips that matter to you, so stay tuned for some awesome content! Our writers, who have a lot of experience writing for K-news websites and blogs, each bring their own diverse backgrounds and interests to the website.
Key sections of ottoKWORLD include:
This ongoing segment features detailed profiles of your favorite K-pop artists. Our goal for the K-pop profiles is to create fun, picture-filled versions of Wikipedia, giving fans the complete history, discography, and detailed member information to satisfy any of your random curiosities.
To start, check out our BTS, B.A.P, BLACKPINK, AOA, ASTRO, and BIGBANG profiles! So many juicy facts, fan favorite videos, and extensive music video histories to keep you entertained for days!
In addition to artist profiles, we have also created detailed pages on all the major entertainment companies in the K-pop industry. From the "Big Three" (SM Entertainment, YG Entertainment, and JYP Entertainment) to some of the lesser-known companies (Fantagio, Source Music, Rainbow Bridge World, etc.), we have all the details waiting for you, including the current and former artists, company management, and headquarters location of each company. Have fun exploring these extensive directories!
Do you ever struggle trying to keep up with all the latest concert tours and comebacks? Well, worry no more! This page is kept up to date with detailed information to make it simple for you to follow the events happening in the K-pop world. Be sure to bookmark this page for streamlined fangirling!
As mentioned above, "Ottoke" is the Korean word for "how". Inspired by this meaning, a core part of this website will be "how-to" guides for following and supporting the Korean entertainment community. Both rookie and veteran K-pop fans can learn from these guides, sharing knowledge and experiences related to this exciting industry.
