Ock Soo Park/IYF Targeting K-Pop Fans in London & Europe

I love stories like this that begin with a cultist looking for publicity for his/her cult. Mission accomplished :)

Many a joke has been made about the cult-like nature of K-pop fandom but now it appears an actual cult may be targeting K-pop fans.

A couple of days ago someone sent me a message on Facebook asking if they could post about an event they were involved. After a quick look, I agreed thinking it looked like any other of these harmless Korean culture events that take place a few times a year. But as I looked at it more closely,it became a little suspicious. “That thing I just posted looks bit cult-y” I joked to Sasha. ....

The London Facebook group looks exactly like Mannam, a former front of Korea's Shinchonji cult,
