Show Me Love – a Korean pop fiction novel by Kpopalypse (Shin Hana book 1)

Estranged from her family and a target of relentless bullying, Hana endures one harrowing day at a time, fighting back in the Korean school system with no friends, no freedom and no aspirations for her future. When she is suddenly and inexplicably scouted by a talent agency, Hana sees the opportunity to escape, and leaps at the chance for inclusion in an unknown, yet-to-debut idol pop group. With nothing to lose, and potentially much to gain, the notoriously high-pressure training environment of the Korean pop industry couldn’t be worse than school… or could it? Can Hana close the door on her turbulent history to find peace, love and fulfillment, or will she be thrust forward into an even more violent future?

SHOW ME LOVE is the first novel from controversial Korean pop writer KPOPALYPSE and this book is completely fictional. You can trust us.

Love Light – a Korean pop fiction novel by Kpopalypse (Shin Hana book 2)

Coming in 2024… or maybe later in 2023 if I really get my shit together…


Get to know the main characters of the Shin Hana series better with these candidate reports straight from the filing cabinet of True Miracle Entertainment’s friendly talent scout, Mr Choi:

CLICK HERE to read the original “Show Me Love” short story that inspired the series. Note that the novel “Show Me Love” is essentially the same story as this short story, just MASSIVELY fleshed out. Due to this, the short story does contain spoilers of the novel’s main plot arc, and vice versa if you read the novel first. However there is a lot of other material that is only in the novel, and a couple little things that are only in the short story.

POSITIVE post – Soojin (G-Idle)

Gosh, it’s been a quiet year for Honey Popcorn, with no comebacks from the group since last year’s excellent “De-aeseohsta“.  While there’s no denying that they’ve earned their rest, fans remain frustrated by the lack of information coming from the Honey Popcorn camp – who knows if or when this legendary k-pop group will resume their activities?  At least the girls have been very active in their Korean drama appearances, and as we all love a good k-drama, to tide you over through the comeback drought, Kpopalypse now presents to you this recap of all Honey Popcorn related drama activity within the last 18 months!
