NOTE: These questions are answered by Jomarie


Q: I don’t think your information is liable. May I ask where you get all your knowledge for the profiles and pages from?
A: I know it may seem like our information may be unreliable sometimes, and you have every right to think that. However, if you are extremely positive that we made a mistake, please don’t hesitate to LET US KNOW. We don’t bite, and chances are, we won’t catch our own mistakes half of the time. Also, the information we get consists of a variety of sites. I (Jomarie) mainly use Google, YouTube and Jenpoo.com. Other sites that appear the most trustworthy I gather information from each one as well. I never use just one site for info for a profile!
Q: I pointed out your mistake for you, but why is it that you still didn’t change it on the page?
A: Well, here’s the thing. We appreciate it if you do catch our mistakes, but we as editors and administrator still need to double check, just in case. We can’t just take someone’s word for something, although that is the case most of the time if that piece of info offered to us is something that we have heard of already.
Q: I would like to be a part of the SuMandu team. How is this possible?
A: Honestly, it is not my (Jomarie) job whether or not I can choose more people to be a part of the team. It is SuMandu’s job, since she is the main adminisitrator of this site. Try emailing her, asking her on her Tumblr, and asking her on her “About Sumandu” page as well. In the end, you’lll just have to wait and see what she does!
Q: I have requested multiple times for a profile to be made. When is it going to be finished?
A: In all honesty, profiles truthfully take a lot of time to be made. We need to gather pictures, reliable information and such. I apologize if you have been waiting for a long time for a profile to be made, but all you can do is just ask and wait. Also, how fast a profile gets made depends on the popularity of the request. If more than a few people ask for a group’s profile, most likely it will be created much sooner than most.
Q: What does the name in parenthesis next to the group name on a profile page mean?
A: Examples would be SS501 (Super Stars 5 United as 1) or Girls’ Generation (SNSD). The names in parenthesis are just the alternative name for the group or the meaning behind the group’s name. That’s all!
Q: I think you’re missing something on this profile.
A: Check the bottom of the profile to see when the page was last updated! If some new info has come out but the page has been updated last before the information came out, then that’s probably why the info isn’t there yet. Just let us know and we’ll add it!
Q: Why is it that some profiles have discographies and others don’t?
A: Good question. The thing is, the newer profiles – meaning the most recent ones by when they were created – have the discography list, the music video list and the debut date because they were created by me, Jomarie. The ones not created by me don’t have them. Each editor and the admin herself have different styles in how they maintain this site!
Q: This idol’s name is spelled wrong. Isn’t it spelled like this ______?
A: Well it depends on the spelling. Some letters are pronounced the same in Hangul, like “o” and “u” for example. For instance, Changju and Changjo are pronounced the same, just like mandoo and mandu and soo and su are as well.
Q: Can I troll/spam on your site?
A: ABSOLUTELY NOT. Trollers and spammers – as well as anti fans – are not appreciated here. Please refrain from doing so.
Q: What is the difference between “Main” and “Lead”?
A: We get this question a lot. A main singer or dancer is usually the person with the most singing or dancing skills. They usually have the most talent and get the most time singing or dancing. A lead singer or dancer is a person who usually goes first in songs and performances. They are quite talented too, and that’s why they get the chance to appear first. But in general, “main” triumphs “lead”.
Q: I can’t find something on your site. I’m sure you had it before.
A: Chances are it got taken down or changed. That, or it was never there to begin with. If you’re still confused, just ask us on the “REQUESTS, PROBLEMS, QUESTIONS” page.
Q: I wanna know ___________./ What’s the reason ___________./ Is it true ____________?/ Where is __________?
A: Okay. Easy. Here’s your answer. Thanks for asking!
Q: I have an idea for a new page under the “MORE KPOP INFORMATION” tab. Can I offer my idea to you guys?
A: Yes! Go ahead! But first, just make sure that you include all the details and the things needed for the page. Also, tell us why you want this page and how it is helpful to others!

    • Keep on the lookout! We’re planning to add MANY MANY MANY more members to the team, but Sumandu herself needs to approve of my idea first.
      However, let me just tell you to “Please keep on interacting with this site and the members.” -hint hint-

    Your missing some people

  10. Hey!Sumandu!
    how about if you make k-pop stars wannabe profile?
    I mean persons who want to be k-pop stars.
    Boybands and girlbands will be borned from your site.
    Your site will be famous!

  11. i know it sounds a bit stupid, but can i get some more explanation about the differences between “lead” and “main”?

    if i read from the FAQ, it said that lead vocal is the person who lead the song, meaning he/she will sing first. if that’s the point, isn’t siwon or in some cases, donghae of super junior will be a lead vocal instead of yesung?? but in almost every profile of them said that yesung is the lead vocalist even though he was almost never get the first verse of super junior’s song??

    what is the meaning of “the-first-person-who-sings”?

    or it means that when they learn the song before recording, the lead vocal will lead other members to learn that?? that will imply that the lead vocal is the most talented vocalist of the group because he/she must learn the song much more quickly than other members??

    i also a bit confused wth lead dance. if a person is a lead dancer, then she will appear first. but isn’t as a group they will always dance together from the beginning to the very end??

  12. i want to know kang sora profile … please?

  13. Hope you guys can put up rookie group, N-Train. They debuted last year already. ^^

    Can you make A-Prince profiles?
    This contains lots of the information. Only fault I can see is that Seong Won’s real name is Changwon, not Chanyong.

    Some members (Minhyuk, Taehyuk, Seongwon) were part of the group TAKEN prior this. Minhyuk’s previous stagename was Daon.

    Siyoon was supposed to debut with A-JAX under DSP ent.

    Can you explain what a sub vocal is? (:

    • A sub-vocalist is someone who is not in charge of any major chords in the song. Either there are too many members in the group that not everyone can be a main/lead vocal, or that certain person does not yet possess the “qualified skills” to be labeled as otherwise. Albeit, a sub-vocal still receives parts — however minor they are — in the chorus, bridge, and intro, etc. We hope this helps clarify any confusion!

  20. sooyoung so beautifull ❤
