Fun Test! How much of a K-Pop addict are you?
K-Pop is all around us! From music to dramas up to cosmetics and fashion, the K-Pop phenomenon cannot be ignored. In fact, Yahoo! Philippines OMG! has just launched Korean Wave a page devoted to nothing but K-Pop!
About a year ago, I wrote an article titled “Signs of a K-Pop Addict.” As more and more newbies join the fandom, I feel it is time to take another test to determine the level of your K-Pop addiction.
Take the test I developed and find out now!

What your scores mean
0 to 10 points
You’ve heard of K-Pop and entered the fandom after a particular group or drama appealed to you. As of now, you have already signed up for the fan forum of the group you like just to spazz out. You are also in the thick of getting to know your favorite stars via YouTube, Wikipedia and K-Pop news sites. At this point, you still have a chance to reverse the madness…but can you?
11 to 15 points
You have been a fan of K-Pop for about a year now. You are extremely loyal to the group or star(s) you first fell in love with. You are able to sustain a conversation about K-Pop stars but you do not regularly seek encounters with other fans. You try to keep yourself updated with K-Pop news but you find yourself a bit delayed compared to other K-Pop fans (especially those who fit the next category).
16 to 20 points
Admit it, you’re hooked! You are a certified K-Pop addict. You watch the shows, listen to the music, eat the food, speak the language, and dream about going to Korea (in fact, you may have visited the country already!). You need help and only an encounter with your favorite stars, albeit on YouTube, can satisfy you. You are in deep trouble. You are due for a K-Pop detox. But, oh, if it were only that simple…!
I AM A KPOP JUNKIE!!! :D
