Yonsei Conference 2: BTS and World Domination

Hey, I’m back and only a week later which is a major achievement. Cue the confetti cannons! Okay, but this post will be a quickie on the 3rd session of the Yonsei conference centered around the oh-so-popular 7-member boy group. This session’s theme was globalization and cultural hybridity. As...

(Results!) BTS Parasocial and Fandom Study Survey
