This edition of For the Record looked into the interconnectivity of digital subcultures through the lens of K-pop and K-drama fandoms. K-pop, or the Hallyu wave, has solidified over the past two decades as an increasingly transnational popular phenomenon.

On the basis of iconic K-pop videos, poet, essayist and editor Momtaza Mehri discussed the participation of young Eastern African women in K-pop culture, and how it reveals the interconnectedness of digital subcultures from the mid-2000s to now. Respondents were Natalie Nzeyimana and Juha van ‘t Zelfde.
