Do you have a love-hate relationship with Korean entertainment? Are you opinionated? Do you love to Tweet, provide status updates on Facebook like nobody’s business and spot new social media trends? Are you an artist or designer always looking for a new way to incorporate Korean entertainment in your work? Do you consider yourself to be resourceful and in the know in terms of K-pop events?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, we’d love to work with you!
We hold staff writer recruiting and training twice a year, usually in April and October. Keep an eye out for the call for new writers on our homepage and social media for details.
Outside of the recruiting period, we accept guest pieces year-round. If you have an article idea that’s relevant to the current Korean entertainment scene that you’d like to work with us to publish on the site, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Guest Submission: [Name]” and include an introduction of yourself along with your article pitch (capturing your main idea, 100 words or less) or draft (700-2000 words).
Since Seoulbeats is an editorial news site where we present insightful commentary of current events in Korean entertainment and open up the forum for readers to participate in the discussion, we expect thoughtful, well-researched samples. And if you happen to be passionate about dramas, film, fashion, beauty or TV, we’d especially love to hear from you.
And if you’re not so much a writer but more of an idea person, we’d be happy to hear your pitches. Please include the direction, scope and relevance of your idea, and we’ll see what we can do.
Do you consider yourself to be in the know with the latest social media trends? Are you a self starter who can get things done with little guidance? If so, you might be the perfect fit for our social media team. Let us know what outlets you’ve worked with, what you think Seoulbeats can do better and why you’re the right person for the job. Bonus points if you have design and editing skills.
Do you love shooting photos/film? Do you have your own professional equipment? Do you have event photography/videography experience? When under pressure, are you a calm but resourceful thinker? If so, you’d be a great fit for our network of photographers/videographers. Send over a link to your portfolio or samples of your work (5-7 for photographers, 2-4 for videographers), and we’ll be in touch. Bonus points if you live in a large metropolitan area (i.e. NYC, L.A., Singapore, Hong Kong, etc.).
Do you live for HTML and CSS? Are you visually inclined? Do you have a strong background in web design, especially WordPress and other CMS? Do you have a love-hate relationship with Adobe? If so, you might be exactly the design consultant we’re looking for. Send us a link to your portfolio or 3-5 samples of your work, and we’ll be in touch if we’re interested.
Do you have skills that we haven’t mentioned above but that you think we can use, be it marketing and business or illustration and motion media? Let us know what you have to offer and why Seoulbeats needs you, and we’ll be in touch if there’s a place for you.
Seoulbeats is a collective of fan writers and all revenue goes to maintaining our server. No member of the Seoulbeats staff — including writers, editors, and contributors — is paid for their contributions. Instead we offer extensive feedback and platform from which you can share your unique K-pop views.
