It all started with the Big Bang

Hey guys,

For our digital artefact, after engaging in a thorough brainstorm sesh, James and myself decided to explore the world of boy bands and the surrounding fandom and culture.

Our main focus will be on the South Korean based bands, Big Bang and Super Junior and their particular influence on the K-pop scene and it’s surrounding culture. 

This research will include how male masculinity is challenged through image construction (hair, makeup, style) as well as a comparison of American boy bands (e.g. One direction), music analysis and online social media fan engagement. 

Our digital artefact will be presented through tumblr. We feel that this platform will enable us to engage with a following of people interested in the boy band culture whilst developing our own understanding of this Asian boy band phenomenon!

Until next time, 

Lil and James 😀
