We take the “K” from Korean and “HOP” from hiphop, call us The KHOP Loyalist (TKL).
Started as a personal blog in 2014 and now ventured out to become your go-to site for everything Korean Hiphop. The KHOP Loyalist’s goal is to bring you all the latest news and information about the KHiphop scene, in a more fan-friendly manner.
Information on this site are based from three of the major Korean hiphop websites, HIPHOPPLAYA, ROKHIPHOP and HIPHOPLE. Other information may come from artists’ SNS or other official sites.
The KHOP Loyalist offers a wide range of information that fans can feed themselves on.

We try and help Korean Hiphop fanbases be known and get more support. If you handle a fanbase/fan account or an activity involving KHOP fans, let us know and we’ll help you promote it.

Move the culture. One love.
