Major Sites and Online Sources
– Their piece “The History of K-pop” was instrumental to my early research on the origins and continuing concepts involved in K-Pop as a cultural institution
To my sisters, Joelle and Janessa Ng, as well as my extended family members including Dharam Dhami, Jaya Dhami and Asher Lee for continuing to be my main K-Pop correspondents. They showed me K-Pop and ignited this interest in me.
To the wonderful friends on Facebook who have been able to assist me with tidbits of knowledge and nuggets of information when needed to finish an entry, as well as hosts of other friends who have made the endurance aspect of this project possible.
To my housemates Aaron Gorenberg, Brian Huynh and Benedict Suen for consistently enduring (over the last two weeks) my bipolar gushing and lamenting about the research process and about delving deeper into K-Pop in general, of which there was a copious if not invasive amount.
