ohp-sr17extranotes.png

 

  • Applicants who want to write/are interested (has extensive knowledge) about animes or Japanese entertainment or both will be given utmost priority > Chinese entertainment/Korean entertainment,

  • Those with vast knowledge or expertise on Chinese entertainment and Korean entertainment are still needed so don’t get discouraged.

  • Entertainment consist of performing arts such as film, broadcasting, music, fashion, and et cetera.

  • For graphic designers and translators, their priority is self explanatory but if they wish to write an article, they are allowed to do so.

  • Oh! Press is already the biggest staff team on OneHallyu, meaning that this might be the last intake until major changes happened. Take your chance!

Q: Do you guys translate Korean articles?

Q: I heard that you guys are bias?

A: Not true. Come over and you’ll know the real deal bts (behind the scene).

 

Q: I heard that you guys can get a discount or perks at concerts and showcases?

A: Yes, that’s true.

 

Q: I heard that you don’t like fanfictions and smuts, will that affect your evaluation and judgement?

Does it have to be about Asian entertainment? How about Hollywood too?imstupid.png

 

 

Sorry but Hollywood is not a part of Hallyu

 

so you are adding gfx and translation users to the ohpress team?

 

imstupid.png

 

what's the use of the actual gfx team and translations team then

 

We are running a different entity which is the blog, added with projects such as OH! Chart and more to come. Dedicated graphic designers and translators will make the process to run multiple tasks more efficiently and in a more manageable way, under one umbrella

Is there an age minimum for applying?

also: should writing samples be like blog posts or reviews similar to what is posted to the OH!blog?

 

No minimum age as long as the applicants are wise enough to make good judgement, but it might be hard if they are too young of course

 

good luck to all the applicants <3

 

I had a question: if we're applying for designer or translator, should we just put "n/a" for the questions that don't apply to the job we're applying for? Or are you looking for people that can handle both as one role?

 

Yeah, just cross out the one that is not related. I just bundled them together

Another question, lol. Do you have a preference for where we upload our samples/portfolio for the graphic designer application? I was going to just upload them to an Imgur album but wanted to check first.

 

Nope, Imgur is good to go. Other image hosting sites are okay too smile.png

What types of materials would you guys need translated? Would it be videos, articles, songs, etc?

 

Official inquiries, interview requests, articles or any sources for reference and research, and a lot more smile.png

 

Videos, articles, songs.. jonjon and the gang do that

I have to writing samples that are currently hosted on my personal tumblr blog (they're pretty lengthy), is it okay if I include the links to those posts or should I just include them in my Pm to the press coordinator?

 

Everything that you want to show me, should be in PM, to me smile.png

I see you totally ignoring my question, it hurts my kokoro rlytearpls.png

 

Nuuu sorry I truly didn't see it, maybe the Somi gif is a little too distracting haha

 

As for the signature extension, that is meant for us to promote our contents and projects

 

Larger dimensions (?) with extra lines and URLs, me think. To be honest I'm not sure what's the differences because it has been like this for a long time unsure.png

I'm mostly teasing though, even though I'd enjoy writing (and godsejong knows I can write novels if I want to, or even if i don't, can't quite help it), I'm not sure I have the time D:

 

Wishing for a smooth recruitment <3

Worry not, soon we're going to announce something that'll allow users to send their stuffs to us for publication. You can ramble as much as you want with nothing to hold you back except for power outage, and we'll publish it as a part of a newly introduced column. Anticipate! and me anticipating your writings to be shared smile.png

For real? I like to write once in a blue moon (and the content is probably crappy anyway) but it sounds like a good idea!

 

Yup, it is really fun trust me! We've been getting many feedbacks and letters to editor is a very popular request superheroh.png 

 

Do you need some Japanese-English translators? I'm still not 100% fluent but i can try if it's some simple translation

 

Yes we are currently seeking Chinese, Japanese, and Korean translators. Preferably those who can translate both ways. It's worth the try smile.png

what kind of things would the translators on the OH press team be translating? i'm asking so i have an idea of what kind of samples to include

 

Interview requests, official inquiries, sources for references and research, and et cetera

 

ok thanks ^^ do literary/ part of books translations count as a sample? because i did one a few days ago and i was thinking of submitting it.. or do you prefer something like translated news articles?

 

Yes absolutely, I just want to see whether an applicant can do translation properly or not

Sure, or you can just add more to it. I would love to read Asian entertainment related samples
