About HiphopKR

Founded in November 2010, HiphopKR (formerly known as DoYouKnowHipHop) delivers the latest Korean hip-hop news to international fans around the world.  Our aim is to inform our readers about the latest albums, events, and up-and-coming artists in the Korean hip-hop scene.

HiphopKR originally took the format of a Proboards-based forum, but with time, switched to WordPress-based news portal site delivering translated Korean articles from two reliable Korean hip-hop websites, HIPHOPPLAYA.COM and ROKHIPHOP.COM.  Articles are translated and published by passionate Korean hip-hop fans around the world.

  1. I’m so glad that i found this website, seriously love it! I recently fell in love with Korean Hip Hop after listening to a couple of tracks by Verbal Jint , Crucial Star and Zion T At the moment I don’t understand a word of Korean but it has inspried me to learn so I can fully appreciate the songs. Besides i think music has a way of hitting you in the heart without you even needing to understand a single word being said. It’s been ahrd trying to find some information on the hip hop scene in korea in english! So thank you very very much!
