How Musicians in Korea can Build a Large and Loyal Following

If you walk the streets of Hongdae you will see street performers gathering large crowds. More and more musicians in Korea today are looking to become YouTube stars. Most you might be shocked to know that they don’t even have a YouTube channel. That should be their first step.

Musicians in Korea Should Do K-Pop Cover Songs

Try to pick some of the more popular K-Pop bands and bring own style into it. K-Pop is now bigger than ever with BTS performing on SNL as the very first Korean musical guest. This will be the easiest way to build your following very quickly. This way you will be able to spread your original content as your viewership grows.

Musicians in Korea Need to Share Behind the Scenes Videos

Posting regularly is the key to getting more followers, however making content can be very hard and time-consuming. However if you create some behind the scenes videos, one cover K-Pop song can create 3-4 videos instead of one. This way you will be able to provide consistent content throughout the week.

Partner with other YouTubers

Korean Youtubers

Korean YouTubers are a small community compared to the world. I would recommend you get together with other talented Korean musicians on YouTube and do collaborations. This will expose you to an even larger audience.

Respond to Every Message

Early on try to respond to every message whether it is on the comments section or through direct messaging. This is because that one-to-one interaction is key to building your fan base who will continue to come back and listen to your music. This will separate you from the other bigger YouTubers who just don’t have the time to respond to their followers. This might sound like a lot of work but this is what it takes to build a base following early.

K-Pop is in high demand so there is a huge opportunity for musicians in Korea to use the popularity of K-Pop to really grow their followers. There will be many platforms coming out in 2019 that will need low to medium sized YouTubers to their promote for them or to come to their platform.
