Welcome to the grand opening of Kpopselca!
Kpopselca is the first photo rating platform and hub for international k-pop fans, ulzzangs, fashionistas, photographers, foodies and more!

Started in 2013, we are filling a void by being the first k-pop community with a strong focus on photography. Until now, there has never been a notable photo site devoted to k-pop. It has always been about the celebrity news and gossip, but we are determined to change that soon. The opportunity came when Korean celebs began sharing self-camera photos abbreviated as "selca" (singular form) or "selcas" (plural form) in recent years. In a society obsessed with looking their best, k-pop idols are quick to share photos of themselves on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and Korean SMS like me2day or UFOtown. There is also an alarming obsession among teenagers in South Korea asking people to "Rate My Face" on Internet Cafe boards for the sole purpose of improving their image and well-being. Kpopselca is honored to be at the center of these growing obsessions and to proudly represent the daily lifestyle of both Korean idols and k-pop fans through their own camera lens. Capture all the latest insights on K-pop culture, Korean fashion, beauty, cosmetics and photography one snapshot at a time at Kpopselca!

We need your word of mouth!
Kpopselca is the first ever k-pop photo rating platform powered by fans like yourself! We don't have a team of translators or writers to keep our website up-to-date like other k-pop sites do. We don't believe that a few people should dictate what content should be on our front page. Instead, we rely on the unlimited resources available from the collective minds of our users who actively engage on our website everyday. Together we can make Kpopselca the largest photo platform and hub for international k-pop fans around the globe.

We aren't asking for donations from you, but we do need your word of mouth!

Here are some ways you can help us grow:

Sign up if you haven't already and set up your profile and avatar
Upload selcas of k-pop idols or yourself
Approve selcas of other users in the pending section
Rate and leave comments
Post topics on our forum
Invite your friends to join our community
Share a link on your social media profiles
Spread the word on tumblr, instagram, Facebook, Twitter, me2day, etc.


Thank you and happy selca-ing!

Hienwa Forum specific tips
You are not allowed to get personal with other users here. Please avoid this forum if you cannot take criticisms about your k-pop idols well. This forum is not for the weak minded or easily offended users. Unlike other k-pop forums, we decided to have a place for fans to duke it out with their antis because it is inevitable that there will be static on a k-pop forum. Trolls, haters and antis will come, so why not make a forum for them?

Topic prefixes are optional because not all topics created will fall in one of these prefixes.
It would be very helpful to everyone if you chose the right topic prefix when posting a new topic:
[ Debate ] - for debating about who is better than who.
[ Bash ] - for bashing k-pop celebrities or idols. Do not go overboard with your accusations.
[ Defend ] - for defending your k-pop celebrities or idols.

Hienwa Users who want to get their topic in the official status should read below.

All official topics will be listed in this forum. To get your topic in the official status, you must be the first user to post a thread on your favorite artist/group. It will be on a first-come, first-serve basis but we also consider the amount of content in your thread as well. If we find that there is little to no content in your topic, even though you were first to claim the official status we may merge yours with someone else who has more content or remove the "Official" status from your thread title.

Please post official thread in the following formats:
[topic prefix] Official [insert Artist/Group name] thread
or
[topic prefix] [insert Artist/Group name] Official thread

Example: [Girl Group] 2ne1 Official thread or [Boy Group] Official B1A4 thread


Thank you!

Hienwa it would expand the forum~
Hi Rihannal,

Good idea. Yes you can. I just made some adjustments to the forum so it would be easier to make official artist & group threads from now on in the Korean artists & groups forum .

Please goto How to claim your official artist & group threads for more details.

I'm a big T-ara fan too.
And yes, these emoticons are kawaii. It took me a long time to find them and get permission to use them from the owner.

Hienwa Okay, pretty sure you're the best admin to exist anywhere ever. xD

I like KS too. Or KSel... or ...yeah KS is good. It's simple and easy.
haha thanks! KSel sounds great too.

I added KSel to the poll but I accidently cleared the results! OMG maybe i'm not the best admin T.T

I wish I could be on 24/7 though. I think I will recruit moderators later but right now the moderator panel needs a redesign so I can't recruit any mods yet T.T

Oh yay~
Lol, don't worry, you're doing well and you're a super cool admin xD
Btw if you need any help with design I'm a web designer, haha. Are you doing everything by yourself? :shock:
Thanks for the offer. That's awesome, I'm actually learning web design at my college.
I do a little bit of everything (coding, web design, graphic design, video editing, social media, etc.) but my twin brother helps me as well. We are twin brothers in real life. ^_^* He hasn't made an account yet but he goes on the user Kpopselca.

Hienwa this is my first time being here welp duh but i actually really like this site.
better than the new allkpop and onehallyu imo
but after each reply it says "thanks for the submission" or w/e
is there someway to take it out? :c
Yes I think it's possible but I think it's there to prevent double posting when the server lags. I will have a look at it next week. I do want it gone too. :embarassed:

Hienwa at the top right, right next to your name is an arrow, click on it, it will tell you if you have any alerts.

or maybe thats inbox. idk it says alerts
It only tells you when you get messages. It doesn't even notify you for friend requests. Which actually...lemme add that to the list too, lol.

Agreed. I don't mind not having notifications if you were thanked, but I want to at least see if people quote me :c
Yeah, I want a few more alerts for things. Friend requests, quotes/replies, thanks, etc. I will try to think of more xD
Good suggestion. I will work on this in the next few weeks but it requires some time because we need to custom code it. Right now, by default, it does e-mail you when you get a friends request. It might be in your spam/junk box though.

There are also a topic subscription/bookmark option at bottom of each topic but I haven't tested that yet.
