Hi! We're back this time with a lengthy one~.
Have you ever wondered what those random OH users with the blood red banners that say “OH! Press” actually do? No, we didn’t bribe sadface for them, or maybe we do, who knows. But we also write for OneHallyu’s very own OH!BLOG. Does this introduction sound similar? Well, that’s probably because you saw our last thread, so thank you for checking by once again.
Now the OHPRESSORS have arrived with fortnightly, maybe not so fortnightly, updates of what we write about.
Sometimes we give a little bit more insight on the entertainment industry (like our recent OH Press Talks). Sometimes we share our reviews on your favourite celebrities’ music releases, dramas and films (Like Wasta’s When a Snail Falls in Love Review). Other times, we’re fans just like you, cackling or facepalming (or both) at our own fandom’s antics.
