Autoethnography methodology explianed

I have never had any close Korean friends or have ever really experience the Korean culture other than their food. For this autoethnography I really could have studied anything from the Korean culture but decided to go for a specific category that seems to be very popular. When it came to choosing the way in which I would investigate K-Pop, it started off with no plan at all, I opened YouTube and away I went. This put no pressure on how I had to experience K-Pop and put no barriers to where it could go.

In my last post I explained where the project went. It went down more of a research tunnel rather than spending hours on YouTube watching music videos.

  1. Much like Ellis et al (2011) examine in their study, from reading your blog I have attained that the purpose of your project is to help insiders (Korean cultural members) and outsiders (Korean cultural strangers) better understand the Korean K-Pop culture. I like that you have incorporated your love for Korean food into exploring more aspects of the Korean culture.

    As Ellis et al (2011) draw in their study, the author of the ethnography should engage in research consulting with photographs, journals and other aspects discovered. You have effectively explained the way in which you’ll begin your research project, through research form.

    Ellis et al (2011) also determine that autobiographers write about epiphanies, which are known as remembered moments comprehended to have significantly had an effect on the course of a person’s life. It is evident that you are engaging in exploring an epiphany as you are making a comparison between your own culture [your love for Spice Girls and Backstreet boys] and K-Pop bands.

    I have conducted some further research to help you along your project journey. If you click on the link below it will take you to a list of the best K-Pop groups of all time. I had a scroll down and a listen to a few and found them quite interesting.

    Enjoy! Good luck with your project, I look forward to seeing the end result.
