HiphopKR was founded in November 2010 (under the name “DoYouKnowHipHop”) with the mission to deliver Korean hiphop news to fans worldwide. Through our website and social media accounts, readers can catch up on the latest albums, concert events, and up-and-coming rookie artists in the Korean hiphop scene.

Get music recommendations, discover new artists, watch our videos, and join our forums to meet like-minded fans!

Both our website and social media accounts are managed by a small, international team of passionate fans. The team members all work voluntarily and in their free time. We prioritize independent reporting, and quality over quantity.
