ABSTRACT

In modern society, popular music is becoming a reflection of public consciousness, and due to advances in technology, pop music culture is gradually spreading both quantitative and qualitatively as it provides access to popular music in a variety of different ways. K-pop has become more important to society as it reflects the social status of the day, showing the most active activities and influences at home and abroad. In this study, we revealed the definitions and characteristics of K-POP and K-POP fandom. Then, a survey was conducted on the fandom of BTS, A.R.M.Y, which can represent K-POP fandom. The survey looked at the general perception of K-pop fandom’s archives, the current status of its collection and production records, the perception of popular music archives, and the donation and commission of their records. At the results, we proposed utilization plans of K-POP fandom records, for developing popular music archives.
