June birthdays! If your birthday is this month, as a community, we would like to wish you “Happy Birthday” The gemstones for June, pearl and alexandrite, represent loyalty and friendship. So here is our kdrama suggestion based on themes of loyalty and friendship. Drama: Defendant (2017) An innocent prosecutor ends up in jail on death row with no memory of how he got there. As he puts together the puzzle, he finds help from unexpected places. Have you seen it yet? What would be your drama recommendation based on these themes? Share below in this thread for other chingus. Song: what is a great kpop song that celebrates friendship and loyalty? do you want to share? @LyraYoo also recommends her bias song on the theme of friendship: Health trivia: You ever have a song stuck in your head? Well, there's a word for it – it is called 'earworm'. No there isn't an actual worm but that is how scientists refer to it. Studies show that earworm are songs that are faster and more upbeat in tempo and generally have a rhythm that people could move to. Did you ever have a kpop song that got stuck in your head? Cultural trivia: If you have watched enough kdramas, you know that every birthday requires a bowl of seaweed soup but why? Here's an explanation from @stroppyse : New mothers are given seaweed soup to eat after they've given birth because seaweed soup is so nutritious. Because of that, seaweed is served on birthdays to celebrate the birth of the person. Before the tradition of birthday cake became popular in Korea, seaweed soup was the commemorative dish for birthdays, and even now, a birthday without seaweed soup is seen as being a shame because the birthday person doesn't have anyone who cares enough to make/buy seaweed soup for them. However, there is one other bit of lore concerning seaweed soup. It is not served to people who are about to take a test. In Korean parlance, "sticking" a test means to pass and "falling/slipping" is considered to be failing. That's why "yeot", a toffee, is given to a test taker to wish them luck in "sticking" a test, while seaweed soup which is full of soft, slippery seaweed is considered a harbinger of failing a test. Curious about anything that you watch in dramas and wonder why -- ask us and we will see if it can be answered in the next month's birthday wishes. To see the list of birthdays by dates, check out: https://forums.soompi.com/en/calendar/ we have also added a new feature where beneath "who's online" (main page bottom), you can see the members who are celebrating their birthdays that day. thanks @ebullient If you see your chingu's name here, don't forget to wish them happy birthday!
Chingus, welcome to the kpop fair fest! yay! so you have your favourite groups but there are lots of chingus here who may not be aware of them or know of their music -- here's your chance to have a booth here in this thread and welcome other chingus to check out favourite group/singer's music. spread the love! In food fest, there's always sample bites outside the booth. similarly, give a sample bite of what makes your favourite group so amazing by answering these questions: remember that it is all about sharing your love for your kpop group and having fun in the process. so these aren't serious questions. you are not conquering the world. hahahah.... just laugh and have fun as you figure out what you want to share. don't write essays but short fun answers that is sweet like dessert and will stir someone's curiousity to check out your booth further. Q: What mood is a good time to check out this group's music? Q: If you could describe the music as a season, food or vacation type (beach/mountain/adventure/sleeping!), how would you describe them? Q: If you had to name three songs to lure people into your fandom, what songs would you say would best describe the specific talents your idol group has and why? Q: What would be the main reason for someone on a deserted island to have only your group's songs with her/him? Q: When you're being hunted down by the police, cops hot on your tail and you're running for your life with an enormous amount of stolen cash on you, what song from your group would you recommend the driver of your Uber would play for you? You can write a max of 5 sentences about the group and why it's the best (no bashing or trolling of other groups!) This is a group entry and so you have time to collect your thoughts together and answer these questions and post here on May 31st. You can also think of someting creative to draw others in like create a cool collage, post a (dance-)cover MV, etc. to get more recognition for the group. If chingus are piqued, they can enter your booth (so give link to your thread in the sample bite) -- you can answer these questions individually in your fandom threads to give them more info. Q. okay, you know the song is not that good and the MV makes no sense, but you can't help but liking that song. which one is that? Q. so what is the name of the fan group and why is it called that? *also, give fun made up reasons to add to the real one and maybe we can guess which one is real? Q. so favourite costume? Q. the visual factor that drew you in -- hot abs? dance moves? cheeky smile? Q. the dance move you tried to replicate on the dance floor! In the fandom thread, you can also explain the reasons about the name of the fandom, group dynamics, whatever else you can think of and would be worthwhile to share. Fandom thread should be dressed up as their favorite MV (change your DP to reflect your favourite MV or anything else you can think of), questions should be answered from that point of view too. Event date: May 31st. there are no prizes to be won but you do get the chance to win more chingus over to your threads and kpop group. so shake a leg! if you have any questions, post them here, tag me and @CamelKnight
