Campus K-pop Club cultivates inclusive space for fans

K-pop Club is a club at Rancho Cucamonga High School that is meant to bring together a group of people that can freely talk about their shared interest in K-pop and other fun topics.

“I decided to create this club to unite and create an inclusive space for K-pop stans to enjoy content and create lasting bonds together,” junior and club president, Kaley Espiridion, said.

A typical club meeting is filled with fun activities and conversations about shared interests in their favorite groups within the K-pop genre. One example of a club activity is photocard trading, where members can trade cards of their favorite “idols” with other members for fun. This gives members a chance to bond with others over their love for their “biases,” or favorite members or groups.

The club’s goal is to give RCHS students a place to express their love for K-pop without being judged, as the genre is often misunderstood in American culture.

“We wanted to show that it’s okay to enjoy music that isn’t exactly the norm in the country,” junior and co-vice president, Savannah Sutphin, said.

Anyone can join the club, even if you are a fan of a different genre. You can still join in on the activities and conversations. Meetings are not only held primarily for K-pop, as they can talk about any other topics that people are mutually interested in.

“K-pop Club strives to be an inclusive and welcome environment for all fans of any group,” Espiridion said. “Students can expect a friendly and welcoming environment. Everyone is willing to have fun together as a club.”

Students who are fans of K-pop meet on Wednesdays in G104 from 3:30 – 4 p.m. to discuss their shared interests in their favorite groups and members.

The club invites everyone, but especially fans of the music genre.

“Anybody is welcome to join the club, especially those who are interested in learning more about the world of K-pop,” Sutphin said.

Students can follow the K-pop Club on Instagram at @rchs.kpopclub.

“This club has been so much fun, I hope more people will join because you can really build strong relations with others,” said Dayos.
