Allkpop is a website that has K-Pop news with BTS, EXO, BLACKPINK, TWICE, and more. It was launched in October 30th, 2007. It is owned and provided by 6TheoryMedia. The website design is great, while the forums are full of annoying people.
Why It's Rotten
It's a ripoff of Soompi, which loads of users makes user-made posts than Soompi. On Soompi, there is no user-made posts.
The forums are full of annoying people, trolls, and hypocrites. Example: On the locations, it says BTS land, Yoongi's toilet, and more. It's maybe because they're not showing their real locations.
Majority of Allkpop users can’t take criticism.
Most users of Allkpop love BTS, notably Jungkook, Jimin & V.
The Allkpop Forum staff ban users for no reason.
When a celebrity dies, such as Sulli or Goo Hara, it floods the website and you can't access on it, it's maybe because of everyone are reading the news about the celebrity's death.
Many articles have misinformation.
Some of the articles are great.
It is breaking when a group disbands, a Korean celebrity is divorcing, etc.
