I might have to try for next time when they hire again. I have such a tough schedule lately and haven't had a chance to write. I watch mostly Chinese and Korean dramas so there are lots of dramas I can write about, just the time is hard ^^

Thanks for the above clarification. I'm definitely interested but the past two days have been very busy given they're working days. I'm hoping to send the application tomorrow (Saturday).

Hi, kokoberry! Thank you for this awesome and exciting opportunity! I would love to write and produce content for Chinese dramas, but I don't think I meet all of the qualifications, and I haven't written drama reviews/articles before. However, I've always been the silent lurker who enjoyed reading the reviews and analysis that people have made for dramas. Aside from this opportunity, does Soompi have volunteer options where we can help create content/write reviews for dramas?

@Sooyun Ahgase i have check with the editorial team.....u can send them as you go....im sure they will sure accept any application...

 oh, I saw the deadline is like March 1st, so it was over already. I'm busy with the program and a course online, so haven't started on anything. Hopefully, when the program and course are done, I will have more time to write and submit if they still accept it. :D
