Starplay is a platform through which fans can subscribe to exclusive contents of official channels and carry out official voting for stars as well as music programs in the K-pop ecosystem, which achieved huge growth into trillions dollar market.
Starplay shifted away from voting in unofficial charts provided by the existing platforms in the fandom market, and supports voting which is connected to broadcasting through the official legacy media. It is easier for fans to vote for artists through official channels, and the brand value of stars can be evaluated through the official activities of fandom.
Through Starplay, fandom can purchase ‘STPC tokens’, which allows them more voting rights by exempting them from commission fees which had to be paid in existing platforms when making a purchase with cash, and can vote for their stars.
Problems & Solutions
Taking the growing number of global fans into consideration, the current entertainment industry and the K-pop market seriously lack charts made through official channels and brand charts and so fans are creating contents and voting to promote and improve the brand value of the artist they love through unofficial channels (application).
However, voting should be done in a way that can influence broadcasting through official legacy media (public channels) to improve an artist’s reputation and brand values, but the existing K-pop voting platforms only allow voting within their own ranking system and so the efforts put in by fans were mere self-satisfaction.
Glim Media’s STARPASS was the first to allow K-pop fans to participate in ‘official music programs’ and influence the chart voting and thus, secured 1 million users in about 11 months.
