does that mean you guys will prioritise people applying with C/J contents over K ones ?

Not at all! I am just trying to encourage those writers to apply, since our blog doesn't usually feature C and J entertainment and some may not want to apply because of that.

I might apply to japanese contents mmmmm 

If you do, that'd be awesome! But also know that you won't be confined to Japanese entertainment. You can cross over and cover whatever you want ^^!

does this require knowing Korean/Japanese/Chinese? 

 

I'd apply but I'm a terrible procrastinator and wouldn't get anything done until the last minute lol.  Plus I have no news/press article writing experience.

Nah! It helps if you plan on contacting companies yourself, but it isn't required to be a team member.

 

If you get any motivation, apply :)

a question : about the samples, any types would you guys be more interested to read etc

You can send anything you think shows your skills. I've read plenty of school essays in applications. 

 

I heard holke is an avid reader of smuts esp with park kyung and b-bomb

I really don't like that  :._.:

but I'm confused in the sense that I dont know what to type of 'style' you guys are looking for, I mean the pattern you'd follow in writing a school essay isn't the same for an internet article nor for a fanfiction  :._.:

An essay won't show your unique voice as much as a creative piece, but it does show me other things, such as your grammar skills and verbosity. That's really what I'm looking for in a sample. I'd love to see more creative writing, but I'm not picky when asking for samples.

 

I forgot to add Zico, i'm so sorry!!

Not my dads.

The posting once a week thing, is that a must? There will probably be weeks where I'm more than willing to write one article, but there will be weeks I'm too busy to write once a week, is that okay?

That is the minimum requirement. It's a pretty easy goal, considering that we don't have a minimum word count requirement.

I'm tempted I love red and now my name will be in red... I've been told I'm a good writer but I'll probably be kicked off the team in September though when school starts again...

I don't know what to do, I don't know what to do

What's cool about the writing requirement is that there is no minimum word count that you have to meet. If you want to give it a shot, apply!

I have a few questions if you don't mind.

 

Is there any type of compensation? I hate to be that person, but I'm curious. Even if it's something that can count, like a reference for a future job. It'd be very helpful for those looking for internships in journalism and fields like that.

 

How 'serious' is this job? As in, are users creating opinionated pieces, or are they only fact-based, supported by objective perspective, very professional etc? Basically, is this a legit job or more of a casual thing?

 

What do you mean by interviews with companies? Not every user who's accepted will receive this opportunity, correct?

 

What is the purpose of this entire thing? If OH! is getting big interviews with ent. companies, this is because OH! wishes to expand as a brand, right? Or is this more of a "if the opportunity arrises" kind of deal? 

 

Sorry for all the questions! I'm just a bit unsure of what this position entails. Thanks :-)

No problem!

 

1. There is no compensation, but past writers have used their works on our blog on their resumes. You can do that if you would like. 

2. It's as serious as you make it. Sometimes you'll see thoughtful pieces. Sometimes you'll see someone's summer music picks. You write about what you want to write about most of the time. And not everyone's voice is professional. Mine, for instance, is more casual.

3. Every user will get the opportunity to interview artists. It has a lot to do with whether or not the company will accept our request. But if you want to contact 50 companies, we'll help you do that.

4. It's mostly for fun.. and to branch out into different platforms as a brand. OneHallyu has something like 50,000 registered users and receives nearly 60 million hits each month. We're huge. So as we move as a brand, you'll see our blog, YouTube, and Facebook accounts become more active.

 

If you want to ask anything else, let me know ^^!
