  1. It's time to kick off this year's December event - Soompi Advent Calendar! What is an Advent Calendar, you might ask? Advent Calendar: a special calendar to count the days until Christmas (from Dec 1st to Dec 24th). Many Advent calendars take the form of a large rectangular card with "windows",one for each day of December leading up to and including Christmas Eve. Example below: You open one window every day, and behind it you will find a picture or an object (e.g. chocolate or a toy). We will be gifting our Soompi community with goodies every day up until Christmas. It can be a picture, it can be a gif, it can be a video. Your task is to find the window based on clues we will be giving you. It's a similar concept we had last year, but with the difference that this will run for 24 consecutive days. You can find all clues in the posts below this one. Instructions : We will post a new clue every day right here on this thread. In the posts below this one. Each clue will have a hint about an actor/actress/drama/section and a page number of the thread. You can discuss here on this thread and help each other out. Once you find the goodie (which will be hidden in a post on the thread, come back here and tell us that you found it. Please put the goodie in a spoiler, as to not spoil it for others who haven't solved the clues yet. Also, let us know how you liked the goodie. Note! This is not a contest. This is just for fun while we count down to Christmas. You can solve as many clues as you want / feel like We have made finding the right thread a bit easier by giving each section a number: hangout kpop kdrama & movies sitcoms & variety actors & actresses shippers paradise global entertainment So when you find a number in the clue (in any form or shape), it will guide you to the right section. Page numbers can be deduced directly from the number posted (51 means page 51) or you might have to add/subtract (32 and 25 -> page 7) / /put together the numbers (e.g. the post mentions 1, 2 and 3 could refer to page 123) / numbers might be scrambled. If you have any questions, please let us know! Let's have some fun together while we count down to Christmas! Thank you to @gm4queen for the event banner.

  2. EVENT: 50 Things You Learn From a Korean Drama (2021 edition) Back in 2006 a Soompi Forum member posted a list of 50 things she had learnt from k-dramas. As we Event Organizers were reading through the list, we came to the conclusion, that several of the items on the list are STILL true today. But since many things had also changed, we thought that it would be fun to put together a 2021 edition. How are we going to decide what the 2021 edition list should contain? Easy. We brainstorm, and we vote which k-drama tropes happen in k-dramas in 2021. What do you need to do? Please read through the list below. These tropes have been suggested by the EOs. If you feel that something is missing, please post your suggestion on this thread and we will add it to the list. What happens after that? We compile a final list and we vote which 50 tropes make the final list. As we can only fit 60 options in the poll, we EOs reserve the right to edit some of the tropes or leave out ones that aren't so common if there are more than 60 options in total. List of tropes from 2006 that are still true today.... 1) You're allowed to make u-turns wherever you want in Korea. And there is never traffic on the side you want to u-turn to. 2) If you're sick, all you need is an IV to make you feel lots better. 3) Soju must cost 10 cents. Everyone drinks it everyday all the time, especially the poor people. 4) If you're rich, you're a jerk. 5) If you're poor, you're an angel. 6) You're not studying hard enough unless you get a nosebleed. 7) You go to America you come back miraculously successful. You go to England you come back amazingly fashionable. You stay in Korea the only thing that changes is your hairstyle. 8) Everyone always goes to the same hospital no matter where they are. 9) If you stand out in the rain for more than five minutes, you'll end up with a fever and vertigo and people will rush you to the hospital to get some magic IV. And instead of taking an ambulance or driving they'll race you on their back. 10) If you're saving someone from being hit from a car, you'll push them out of the way and wait for the car to hit you instead. Couldn't be more true, they're like a deer in headlights. ---NOTE in 2021, it's a truck. And it's called the Truck of Doom 11) If you're getting off a plane, you're ALWAYS wearing sunglasses. ALWAYS. 12) Girls will always storm off because they're mad and the guy will stoically grab them by the arm and swing them back- and by magic, not dislocate their shoulders. 13) You always get stuck in an elevator with someone who makes you feel uncomfortable. Even if there are six different elevators, you'll always be stuck in the same one with that guy you hate (or just fought with). 14) Unless you're fabulously rich, your in-laws will always hate you -- NOTE in 2021, most in-laws hate you - regardless if you're rich or not 15) There are only 2 ways to kiss. You either press your lips against theirs with your mouth completely shut, and just press away for a very long and uncomfortable time. OR you devour the other person and suck out their soul. In both instances, the world spins. 16) A guy will always get the right size ring, even if you're never held hands. 17) You'll get pregnant if you hold hands. 18) One Korean man can kick the butts of 6 gangstas. Especially when they all stand in a circle and attack the guy one by one. Then when each of them get their butts OWNED, they wise up and attack the guy at the same time. Then the guy will get pulverized and bleed out onto the dusty concrete floor of the empty warehouse they've found to fight in. There will be a fire in a trashcan somewhere. And the girl will have watched this the entire time, screaming in horror. Instead of calling 119, she'll just watch and cry. But it's okay. Cuz the next day the guy will be fine with a few random bandages and a few face scars. But never a black eye. 19) If you study in the states (preferably Harvard), you are one of the top students and can speak perfect English (as assumed by the reactions of those around you). Why the rest of the world OUTSIDE of the TV can't understand a single word uttered out of your melodramatic mouth is beyond me. New 2021 tropes suggested by the Event Organizers.... 20) If you have a husband, he's probably a cheater. The audience will be shown lots of barf scenes of him cheating. You'll need barf bags. 21) The leads ALWAYS knew each other already as kids 22) A drama isn't complete without the male lead brooding in the shower - not that we mind - lol 23) In the early 2000s everyone died of cancer - in 2021 everyone is just randomly killed off (preferably by a serial killer with a brain transplant) 24) People throw in all kinds of random English words into conversations even though it makes no sense in that context 25) People always eat at Subway, cafe or a fried chicken restaurant. Or you're using a coffee maker, putting on facial cream or offering your work colleagues donuts all the while the camera is zooming in on the brand 26) Your future mother-in-law will throw water in your face. 27) If you're being cheated on, you will throw water in the face of your hubby's mistress. Or you'll slap her. Or you'll grab her by her hair. In any case, the husband will not interfere. He will just stand there looking at the both of you like he's encountering the Truck of Doom. 28) If you're not drinking soju, you're drinking iced Americano 29) Ramen is the national dish of Korea. You'll be slurping away on ramen in nearly every episode. And you'll compliment how good it is. 30) You will take out a cigarette but you'll never light it 31) If it's winter, you never look cold even though you're not wearing a coat, gloves or a beanie. You don't need those even if it's below zero. You're always feeling warm because yeah, you're fashionable. 32) When driving, you don't need to look at the road. You speak to the person in the passenger seat and give him/her long gazes while the car just drives itself miraculously. And you never need to check the side mirrors or the back mirror because you're the best driver in the world 33) If you're in the elevator, the elevator is the slowest in the world. You can have a 3 minute discussion in the elevator even though the building is only 4 floors in total. This is normal elevator speed in Korea. 34) Someone is always a secret chaebol. 35) If you travel abroad you always want to go to France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany or Spain. If you happen to speak German, French, Italian or Spanish, viewers won't understand a word of it. 36) The male lead is always younger than the female lead. Because noonas are in fashion and apparently every man in Korea wants one. And if you're an ahjussi, then you'll prefer a super young woman. An idol actress will be cast in that role 37) If you're a criminal, you always wear black clothes and a black baseball cap. Because no, you won't look suspicious at all. lol 38) If a guy is a jerk, he is definitely into you. He'll have narcissistic tendencies, but he will just miraculously change for the female lead WITHOUT any kind of therapy. Because you know, the power of love. 39) If you're playing an "ugly" character, taking off your glasses and straightening your hair will turn you into a goddess and all men will fall for you after that. 40) What would a drama without the ML grabbing the FL by her wrist be? 41) You'll always tell someone that the weather is nice. Even though there's a hurricane. Because yeah, you'll think that the rain and wind are refreshing 42) If you're working in a restaurant or at the fish/fruit market, you'll be an ahjumma with curly permed hair. 43) If you're a police officer or a detective, you won't have common sense. No, all criminals will be smarter than you. The newbie in your squad will puke at the crime scene. You'll be good at fighting, but the criminal will always get away anyway, because they will be better than you at taekwondo / kung fu. So, you won't catch him until the last episode. By then, the story will have become so complicated and convoluted that it doesn't make sense anymore and the audience will just be left shaking their heads in disbelief. 44) You have bangs regardless if you're a man or a woman. Yup, even if you look better showing off your forehead, you'll still want to have outdated wispy bangs if you're a girl and a bowl cut if you're a boy. And this Korean trend will not fade away - it will still be the trend in 10 years. Heck 50 years. We can only dream of forehead oppas. 45) If it's a daily drama, karma always hits you. 46) If you're second male lead, you'll never get the girl. 47) If you are having coffee/juice/pizza or anything in a cafe/restaurant, you will never ever finish them. You won't take a sip or bite of it, and leave the poor thing on table since something urgent always happens. 48) If you're poor, you'll always have the latest Samsung phone. Everyone in the drama will have the same phone, just different color. 49) If you're texting someone, there will never be any chat history on screen. 50) Slaps are more effective using food - seaweed, kimchi, a pork chop. And you can eat it too after the slap is over. No food waste cr. to owner Chingus, please post your suggestions below. Do you want to rewrite one of the options, or did we miss out on one? Let us know. In 24 hours, we'll be putting up the poll. Your Event Organizers, @partyon @Lmangla @Sleepy Owl tagging:
  3. Quick Poll: K-Drama Seasons As we gear up for the season to be jolly, I wondered about all the K-drama seasons we have watched together and desperately prayed to K-Drama gods and goddesses to grant us a new season after we bid goodbye to them. Therefore, is it any surprise if an announcement of a new season makes us squeal and jump in excitement? Recently, there has been a bloom of K-Dramas with multiple seasons and a lot of new projects are already in the pipeline. Be it the internationally acclaimed thriller, 'Squid Game' or rom-coms like 'Yumi's Cells'. We love our K-dramas and more the seasons, the merrier we are. So, do vote for your favourite K-drama with multiple seasons. Is there any drama that you wish to see the second season of? Do let us know why you wish to see it. "As with all Quick Polls, you only have 36 hours to vote! " Tagging: Please feel free to reach out to us, your friendly neighborhood EOs with your suggestions for events, including Quick Polls. re : Your friendly neighbourhood EO Team: @partyon @Sleepy Owl @agenth @confusedheart

  5. CONTEST: Movember Oppa -- Win Prizes! Movember is an annual event involving the growing of mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues (e.g. male cancers). As we Event Organizers invented the term "Mustache oppa" to describe @Lmangla's oppas, we thought why not dedicate an event to facial hair (mustache, beard, bushy eyebrows)? Have you always wondered what your favorite oppa would look like with a beard? Have you been secretly wishing your oppa would sport a mustache? Or do you just want a good laugh whilst doodling facial hair on your oppa's face? Look no further! Take cue from Siwon oppa (authentic Mustache Oppa) CATEGORIES: 1) Contemporary Movember Oppa 2) Historical Movember Oppa RULES: 1) Choose a picture of an oppa (can be a k-oppa, c-oppa, Thai oppa, your real-life oppa, Hollywood oppa, etc.) 2) Photoshop the pic to display a mustache oppa, beard oppa or a combination of both. 3) You can tweak pictures with any SW you want - there are tons of free apps available e.g in Google Play store and Apple Store. 4) You can be as creative as you desire with colors, textures, backgrounds, humor, etc. 5) Choose the category you want to your oppa pic to compete in: Contemporary (2021) or historical (e.g. sageuk, historical c-drama, Old Western, British period drama). 6) Post the altered picture AND the original picture on this thread. 7) You can submit as many photoshopped pictures as you want. In case there are a lot of submissions, we may have to ask you to choose only one work per category. We will inform you of this separately if that's the case. 8) After the submission deadline, there will be a poll on this thread to determine the winners of each category. 9) In total 4 members with the most votes in the categories will win a prize - a Viki pass. Yay! 10) General Forum and Event rules apply in this competition. Example: Category 1 (Contemporary Movember Oppa) cr. Thank you to @gm4queen for making Ji Sung into a mustache oppa.

  8. Everyone who has ever participated in an event on Soompi Forums knows @Lmangla - our amazing Event Organizer! She has decided to graduate as an EO and will go back to being a regular member( ). So in order to thank her for her efforts, we put together a spotlight about her! SPOTLIGHT: LMANGLA Lmangla joined the forum in 2013. She had been watching dramas since the early 2000s and felt the urge to discuss with other like-minded individuals. Especially if the discussions were about makjang dramas - because makjang tropes made her laugh the most. In 2017 Lmangla was appointed the Event Organizer position on Soompi Forums. Up until then, moderators and administrators had been in charge of events, and would put together a few events per year. But they realized after a while that it would be easier to have a dedicated person for the role. They had noticed Lmangla's talent for getting people to discuss on drama threads, as well as, her mini-events on one of the shipper threads. You see, Lmangla was a shipper at that time! (Note! She used to fangirl a lot over Taecyeon and Guigui who had starred together on We Got Married back in the day. Ask her anything about Taec, and she'll be able to tell you every detail about him... ) In any case, back to the spotlight... "What is an Event Organizer?" she asked "We don't know, but you define the role as you best see fit!" she was told. So Lmangla started launching events on the forum with the goal to engage the whole community. It was trial and error at first, but she soon found her groove. (Note! Some of her events through the years have been listed in the poll). As an EO, her motto has been to create events that she herself enjoys and which will engage as many members as possible. If an event doesn't garner much interest, she just shrugs it off and tries again. "Whatever. Guess we won't do that type of event again." she'll laugh. She is super spontaneous. She will watch a YouTube video or chat about the latest royal gossip with the rest of the EOs and suddenly get an idea. "I will launch this on the forum right NOW! This will be fun!" is what she'll say next. She has a talent for keeping discussions flowing naturally on event threads, and she will ensure everyone feels included. She wants everyone to feel at home during our events and our events should cater as many chingus on this forum as possible. She's an amazing writer and reading her posts is always a treat. She'll dissect even the most mundane of topics and make it an interesting read. As she is a walking encyclopedia, you'll be sure to learn something new when you read her posts. (Note! We are still waiting for her to start a blog with tales of makjang dramas, Turkish dizis, Thai lakorns and mustache oppas. Be sure to sign up for it once it's online.) Lmangla is empathetic and pragmatic in nature. She has a very sweet voice with a clear pitched laugh that is super contagious. She will make others feel comfortable and relaxed around her. She's a great listener and will comfort you when you're feeling down. When things are tough, she won't give up. She is very tenacious even when faced with difficult tasks or challenges. She is dedicated and hard-working, and for her the Soompi community is everything! Lmangla is the person who defined and developed the Event Organizer role for 4 years! She is very much loved by the community, not just by the EO team but by so many chingus here. Thankfully she is staying on as a Soompi Forum member. In case you want to interact with her, you will find her on the drama threads and on the Add Subtract thread. (Note! Don't miss her snarky posts about "too dumb to live" characters on daily drama threads. They're hilarious! Especially now that she learned how to do drama screenshots and edit them.) We would like to extend a a huge THANK YOU to @Lmangla for her dedication and efforts as an Event Organizer 2017-2021! Please participate in the poll above, and feel free to leave a note on this thread to our dear Lmangla.

  9. Chingus, the wait is over and Tokyo Olympics 2020 have finally started. Scheduled to have taken place a year ago, most of us must have been disappointed for it to be have been postponed for a year and also with the cancellation news going around. But here we are and it has already started. We EOs have come up with a Poll on the Olympic Games. So Chingus, if you were to participate in Olympic Games, which game would you choose? I am sure a lot of us have imagined to be participating in the Olympic Games at least once. So let's do it again, and pretend we have the athletic talent and can do whatever sport we enjoy watching. We have come up with a list of Sports being played in Olympics but, due to technical limitations of having only 20 options per category, we came up with this current list. We have grouped some of the sports under one general heading. For example, sports like "Swimming" includes all kind of swimming games being played in the Olympics. We have Divided the Olympics event into three lists. Category A: This list contains the "Athletics", "Gymnastics" and "Aquatic" events. Category B: This involves the sports which are being played/can be played as a team. Category C: Ths involves the events that come into the martial arts and the rest of the games. Not wasting much time, here we are with the list. Category A 1. Short Sprint Race (100/200/400m) 2. Long Distance Race (800/1500/5000/10000m) 3. Hurdles Race (100/400m) 4. Steeplechase Race 5. Relay Race/Mixed Relay Race 6. High Jump/Long Jump/Triple Jump 7. Shot Put 8. Pole Vault 9. Discus Throw/Hammer Throw/Javeline Throw 10. Rowing 11. Diving 12. Surfing 13. Swimming 14. Canoe/Kayaking 15. Sailing 16. Triathlon 17. Marathon 18. Gymnastics 19. Trampoline Category B 1. Basketball 2. Volleyball 3. Hockey 4. Beach Volleyball 5. Table Tennis 6. Tennis 7. Rugby 8.

Equestrian 11. Modern Pentathlon 12. Skateboarding 13. Cycling 14. Sport Climbing Since we are talking about participating in the Olympic Games, maybe you could also tell us when and what made you watch the Olympic Games for the first time, about your fondest memories from Olympic Games and why you like this interesting sports event, which many consider to be among the oldest ones.

  12. Quick Poll: Are you a K-Drama addict? Signs you are a K-drama addict! If you are a Potterhead, you must know about the ‘soul-sucking fiends’, the Dementors who leave their victims in a permanent vegetative state. Has your soul been consumed by the K-drama Dementors, leaving you with no social life? cr: to the creator Did your addiction start innocently with a ‘Playful Kiss’ ? Do you find yourself 'On the Verge of Madness'? Is everyone now aware of your not so ‘Secret Romance’ with K-dramas? Does your ‘Love Alarm’ go Du-geun Du-geun when your discover a new oppa/ noona/ unnie/ ahjussi? cr: to the creator Fear not Chingus, your ‘Good Doctor’ EO ‘Healer’ team is here. Because we firmly believe in the mantra that ‘It’s Okay to Not Be Okay’. So check out the Quick Poll and diagnose your symptoms. cr: to the creator And the results are *drum rolls* 0-5: you got lost on the forums and now stay for the tea and cookies. 6-9: you either need to catch up, or you're hiding your obsession very well, even from yourself 10-15: you're at the point of no return, have succumbed to the trills of dramatic K-drama OST and can fling around random Korean words around you as self-defence for anyone wanting to bring you back to the normal world 16-20: your relatives have checked you in rehab, which is the only reason why you aren't walking down the streets of Seoul to meet your oppa. Perhaps you have broken out already and been to Korea, but there are so many drama locations you haven't been to yet... " As with all Quick Polls, you only have 36 hours to vote!

  13. EVENT: Celebrity Sightings - Spill the Tea cr. @gm4queen Chingus, we assume that some of you have met a celebrity, talked to them, gotten an autograph or just admired them from afar? Or that you want to meet a celebrity? Who? As we Event Organizers (EOs) are HUGE fans of gossip (lol), it would be fun to read stories regarding celebrity sightings. Either ones that have happened, or ones that you wish would happen. Have you seen/met a celebrity? (can be anyone from around the world, doesn't have to be Korean) What was it like? Did you talk to them? Did you get an autograph? Were they nice? Or different from what you expected? Which celebrity would you really like to meet one day? If you have a picture, feel free to post it here for other chingus to admire. You don't have to name the celebrity if you would like to keep it anonymous. Here are some examples of celebrity sightings - the Event Organizers spilling the tea.... "I met a local celeb actress -- was in a hotel and waiting in the entrance for the valet to return our car. Turned and saw the actress and first I was confused "oh, she looks familiar" and then realized she was from xx movie and then I was like "woah! she is seriously short even with those heels...." I looked like a giant next to her and I was wearing flats." @Lmangla "I was visiting Korea many years ago and ran into a Korean actress in a department store. For some reason I thought I had met her (didn't realize she was a celebrity), so I kept ("secretly") staring at her, trying to jolt my memory about who she was and if I should go up and say hi to her. After a while she started to look annoyed with my staring, and that's when I realized that I didn't know her and that she was a celebrity. I guess she was wondering why she suddenly had a foreign lady stalker. lol " @partyon "A few years ago, before the pandemic hit us and brought our lives to a standstill, my friends and I were travelling. Our previous flight had just landed and we hardly had enough time for check in and board the next flight to finally reach our destination. As we flew across the airport lounges, trying not to miss our flight, we briefly saw a very popular sportsperson. Obviously, our young hearts fluttered at the sight of the young handsome sportsperson and we desperately wished to meet him, click a couple of photos, perhaps even get his autograph. But it wasn’t to be so, if we needed to catch the flight. So we simply left with a memory in our hearts. The sportsperson looked way handsome in person than on television, that’s for sure! Though I wasn’t a fan, I definitely became one after the ‘celeb-sighting’. It was love at first sight though one-sided and reciprocated. Now, I have discovered K-drama and lots of oppas. My heart goes ‘dugun dugun’ again at the sight of them. Hope to catch a sight of them someday soon." @confusedheart326 "I met half the Italian national football team once while shopping. When I realised who they were, I immediately called my friend. As she told me she's 5 minutes away, i followed at a distance to keep them in my sight, but they sort of noticed me when they went in a perfume shop so I asked for a photo with them and one even sprayed his newly bought perfume on me." @agenth "I have seen this one really famous cricketer in domestic airport while travelling, but I was just like "Oh, its him", and then continued reading my book. Wasn't really my favorite cricketer." @Sleepy Owl We look forward to reading your stories. As always, if you do have any event ideas, do reach out to us.

  15. Poll: MY ULTIMATE Unnie/Noona Chingus, sometime ago we had the Ultimate Oppa polls, but dramas are not all about Oppas, they also require the female leads, a.k.a Unnies or Noonas (in my case) We all have a certain group of actresses, whose dramas we wait for, and always watch. There are several actresses who we actually admire not only for their acting skills or dramas, but also for who they are in RL. Some also could be the ones who we secretly ship with our favorite Oppa, because why not? For me, one of them is Jang Nara, So, we are back with a poll on who your Ultimate Unnie/Noona is. We have set up our poll in 3 categories, Red Wine Unnie/Noona (Age group 21-35) White Wine Unnie/Noona (Age Group 36-40) Rose Wine Unnie/Noona (Age Group 40-55) Red Wine Unnie/Noona White Wine Unnie/Noona Rose Wine Unnie/Noona Chingus, you can vote for 4 per each category. Due to the limitations of having only 20 options per category, we chose the Unnies/Noonas, based on their popularity, how recent their work was and how long they have been doing the lead roles. The list consists of actresses who have usually done the lead roles. So, we apologize before hand if we missed out your favorite Unnie/Noona here. But, please do mention them in your comments, and do tell us why they are your ultimate Unnie/Noona Also Chingus, please note that the result of this poll does not mean that one's ultimate Unnie/Noona is better than the others just because they got more votes. Have Fun voting Chingus, The poll is open till Sunday. Your Event Organizers @Lmangla, @partyon, @Sleepy Owl Tagging:
