Society Spotlight: turning up with Sussex KPOP Society
KPOP means Korean pop if you were wondering
Continuing our society spotlight series, the Korean pop society (or KPOP for short) has caught our eye. A society based on the appreciation of Korean pop music, the group was originally just a small group of friends who decided to make a society to try and find others like them. We have recently met up with them and found that out for you. Let’s have a closer look at who they and what they do.
From casual meet-ups to becoming a society
Socials are a pretty big thing
The society really stresses the fact that they want to have fun and be very social, rather than just sit in a room and listen to KPOP. Every week, they plan activities or socials on or off campus. These vary from pub quizzes, Korean dramas and variety shows screenings in pajamas to club nights, house parties, cooking Korean food together, bowling, laser tag, karaoke nights, and so on. As many of them have become really good friends, they often hang out outside of society hours as well.
They also organize an end-of-year outdoor event based off of a Korean variety show called Running Man where participants play various mini-games before playing hide-and-seek with name-tags to rip off of each other’s backs to win.
They love to dance
KTunes: Their very own radio show
The society wants to bring people together through fun and social weekly activities. Plus, membership is free so if you are interested, you can join their Facebook group to keep updated with their events, new music releases, and KPOP-related news.
