K-pop Suomi ry is a Finnish registered association whose objective is to be a base to the k-pop community on a national level. It was founded on January 20, 2015 by six k-pop fans. Since then we have held several events to bring Finnish k-pop fans together. The association has grown in numbers and as a community over the years. We aspire to evolve even more!
