[UPDATE] Updated Trivia/Fun Facts on BTS Profile!!

I have to admit something…

I’ve fallen for Bangtan Boys

There. I’ve said it.

And now that the cat’s out of the bag, I’ll also go ahead and say that because of said falling-in-love-with-BTS, I went ahead and added more fun facts and trivia to their profile (because as a dedicated fan, your “job” — and I’m using the term loosely here — is to share fun information with those people AKA prospective fans of your bias group who want to learn more about them). So ta-da!

BTS (Bangtang Boys/Bulletproof Boy Scouts) Profile: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/kpop-profiles/boy-groups/bts-bangtan-boysbulletproof-boy-scouts-profile/

Now, I still Got7 as much as I have since the first day I fell head over heels for them (and if anything I love them even more now then before), but I’ve just enlisted in the A.R.M.Y, and man, it’s better than I thought it would be (YOU LIKE THAT PUN I DID THERE??? BOO YAH). And can I also just quickly mention that (OKAY DISCLAIMER HERE. DON’T HURT ME ALL YOU OTHER IGOT7S. THIS IS JUST MY ENTITLED OPINION THAT HAS NO NEGATIVE CONNOTATION TO IT WHATSOEVER ALTHOUGH IT MAY SEEM LIKE IT) the meaning behind BTS’s group name is soooooo much more meaningful than Got7’s. Yes, Got7’s group name makes complete sense on a literal level. They DO have seven members. But the fact that RapMon even said that Bulletproof Boy Scouts was chosen as the group’s name to serve as a representation for all the love and all the hate that young adults generally have towards the world today is much more substantial not just on a literal level, but on a rhetorical level as well. Flat across the board does it make sense that BTS is a boy group that simply wants to make the statement “We won’t allow society to determine our level of mentality; our substance; and our talent”. GO BANGTAN YOU TELL ‘EM. DO YOU BOO BOO. STAY TRUE.

Okay. This was just a quick update. Still working on that Topp Dogg profile for y’all out there. Keep on the lookout for that!

As always, don’t forget to share the K-pop love ❤ Until next time, this has been Jomarie!

[UPDATE] New WINNER Profile + WINNER’s Official Accounts Added!!

The time has finally come. We now present to you guys… our very one and only…there are no other like its kind…drum roll pleaseWINNER profile!!!

Yes yes, it took much longer than we would’ve liked it to be, and we’re greatly apologetic for that. But it’s here now, just right before their official August 1st debut, and we hope that you guys – fans of WINNER and non-fans alike (yet) – will find this helpful in trying to get to know them better and with matching their names to their faces.

We’re missing a smalllll amount of info (like the nicknames for three of the five members, but we’re hoping that’ll change reaaal fast as people start to get to know them better), and we’d also like to put a lot more trivia/fun facts in, but things are limited right now pre-debut era…so just wait and in time we WILL update that.

So, with no further ado, check our our newly published WINNER profile, and spazz out at their glorious faces.

[UPDATE] It’s been a little over a week now…

…but we’re back with a couple of updates. The list is as follows: (BTW. The site is acting up today, so we aren’t able to include any links on this post for some weird, freakish reason. Sorry for the inconvenience. You’ll have to manually search for the profiles/pages on your own)

1) Really quickly, we updated EXO-M’s profile! Some of the members were missing their blood types as well as their hometowns, so we went ahead and inserted those in. And while we were at it, we inserted a small amount of trivia and fun facts for ya’ll. Check it out if you want!

2) We also managed to add ChoColat’s official accounts to the Official Celebrity Accounts page. If you’re looking for Tia’s Instagram or Twitter — or even their YouTube and Facebook pages —  then look no further!

3) Someone requested that we add the heights of B2ST members to their profile, and I was like “WOAH WE DON’T HAVE THE HEIGHTS ON THERE WHAT???” Knowing me, I had to go and get that fixed pronto. So if you wanna know how tall Doojoon or Kikwang is (but you probably already know that from another website that told you the info because we were so slow on this), then check them out! Oh, and we added a few other smaller tid-bits of info as well, such as their hometowns and their weights.

4) We added VIXX and 15& to our Birth Year Liners of Idols page. Check that out if you want to see who else shares the same birth year as Yerin or N!

5) We are still working on our WINNER profile. BARE WITH US. I’m getting as excited as you all are. Hopefully this profile will be up reaaaaaaaalllllllly reaaaaaallllllyyyy soon. Follow us on our Twitter to know the exact moment when that gets posted! EEK!

~~

Mmkaay. That’s that. I apologize for having a week long hiatus. We’re deciding how to better organize the site, and we’re looking to “hire” (I’m using that term loosely here) more editors and coordinators to assist us in maintaining the blog. There’s so much to do, and so little time.

Okay everyone! Ta-ta for now! Until next time…and don’t forget to always share the K-pop love ❤

Future Updates

For your reference, here are some things we plan to work on in the future. We’re still currently undergoing an all-over site maintenance, so please bare with us as we moderate and refresh profiles.

  1. Update “5Dolls Profile”
  2. Update Teen Top photos
  3. Update “Tahiti Profile”
  4. Update “U-Kiss Profile”
  5. Update “Piggy Dolls Profile”
  6. Update “ChoColat Profile”
  7. Update “T-ara Profile”
  8. Add trivia facts to “Block B Profile”

These are at the top of our “must-do” list right now. Either we plan to interchange older photos for newer, more recent ones, or there have been member changes, or it is a combination of both. We’ll also try to add trivia facts to them in the meanwhile.

Okay Mandu-ers. We’ll keep you posted! Check back for more, and as always, thanks for taking the time to visit our site.

– SuMandu Team ❤

[UPDATE] Updated “Birth Year Liners of Idols” Page + Updated Profiles & MORE!!

Helllllllllllllooooooo one and all. Thanks for taking the time to visit SuMandu today. We appreciate it.

I figure you came to find out what’s new on the site? Well, let me hinder you no longer. Here’s the break-down for today!

1) I managed to update our “Birth Year Liners of Idols” page. Yes yes, I’ve included Maru from C-Clown under the 97ers, and I also put WINNER in the list, too. Check it out if you want to know who else shares the same birth year as Jinwoo! Or Mino! Or Taehyun!

Birth Year Liners of Idols: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/more-k-pop-information/idols-birth-year-liner/

2) I was looking through some comments and saw someone complaining that Girls’ Day now has four members because Ji Hae left, and I was all like “Wait, our Girls’ Day profile isn’t up-to-date?!?!?!?!?!” So yeah, knowing me, I had to scramble over there to update the darn thing. Now Ji Hae is -sniff sniff- listed as a former member. But hey! On the bright side, I updated the pictures while I was at it! Now we have prettier pictures to look at of Minah and the rest of them… (this totally doesn’t help, I know). Come check out our Girls’ Day profile merely to see the shiny, pretty pictures. LOL.

Girls’ Day Profile: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/kpop-profiles/girl-groups/girls-day-profile/

3) So after seeing the previous comment about Girls’ Day having four members now and blah blah blah, I scrolled down further and saw yet again another person complaining that our Nine Muses profile needed updating too. I was like “I JUST UPDATED THIS PROFILE THREE WEEKS AGO WHAT THE HECK”. So I went over to check out their profile and realized that omg I’m stupid. I updated it, but I didn’t update it. Ya feel me? Well anyways, I assure you that NOW our Nine Muses Profile is really up-to-date. Can I just say, though, that companies really should think twice when naming a group after how many members are in it, because it’s just so awkward when a member leaves. I mean, Nine Muses has six members? LOL UM. If Got7 ever loses a member (which I swear to God I hope it doesn’t happen), then man. But anyways, that’s totally besides the point…come check out our Nine Muses profile to read some interesting and fun facts about them! I made sure to put in a lot of trivia.

4) Also, alongside updating Nine Muses’ profile, I found that their official accounts weren’t included on our “Official Celebrity Accounts page, so I stuck them right in there with no hesitation. Come find their Twitter, me2day, and other accounts here!

Official Celebrity Accounts: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/more-k-pop-information/official-celebrity-accounts/

5) Last, I find it important to let you all know that I’m currently working on our WINNER profile. I’m working hard to make sure that we have an excellent, top-notch quality profile for them — with HD, sparkly pictures included…don’t worry — that’ll be up and ready to go for your viewing pleasure before their debut date (which is August 1st, if you don’t already know). The reason for this is so that you can familiarize yourself beforehand and prep for all the fangirling that is to come. SUMANDU NEEDS TO BE ON TOP OF THE GAME. Alright, so I’ll continue to keep you updated on how our WINNER profile is coming along. Stay posted for when we publish their profile! If you aren’t already, follow us on Twitter to stay realllllly updated. We always update on Twitter first.

Mmmmmmkaaaaay misters and misses. That’s the break-down for today. Come back soon for more! Enjoy the site, and as always, don’t forget to share the K-pop love ❤ Good night Mandu-ers!

[UPDATE] VOTING IS ALMOST OVER (Defunct) + New Profile! + Updated “Official Celebrity Accounts” Page

We have ONE DAY LEFT (Defunct) before the polls close. Vote now to help choose the priority in which these profiles should be made next!

ALSO…I am proud to announce that I have made a new profile for 15&, a young girl duo from JYP Entertainment. They are sooooo incredibly talented and beyond their years. Honestly, I’m very amazed at how gifted these two ladies are, especially at so early a time in their lives. I discovered them through Got7 and fell in complete love with them like that. So much so that I just ran on over here to SuMandu and just had to make them a profile. My only regret is that I hadn’t taken the time before to find out about them earlier. But no worries. I know about them now, and the moment I watched their MVs and saw their appearances on After School Club and Weekly Idol, I was instantly hooked.

What I love about these girls are their – for lack of a better word – “unconventionality”. They are truly different from what I’ve been seeing amongst K-pop girl groups lately (and even a select few soloists). I especially have high hopes for Jimin! I firmly believe she is a catalyst towards changing the “ideal” of what a female K-pop idol should be. She is proud, fierce, and hilarious; and fills any room she walks into with her positive vibe and energy. And omg yes their voices. They are crisper, cleaner, and fresher than a blue sky on a warm, breezy day in the middle of Summer. Their vocal ranges are craaaazy good, and their musicality is so on point. I AM JUST SO HIGHLY ANTICIPATING HOW 15& WILL TURN OUT.

Gosh JYP. Stop wrecking up my bias list, forreal. I am a solid believer of the YG Family, but my faith in JYP Nation is growing too fast, too soon. But will I try to stop it? LOL NO. KEEP IT COMING.

BTW for the record…I ship Yerin & Yugyeom very, very hard…but

CAN JACKSON & JIMIN JUST PLEASE….LIKE…RIGHT NOW…JUST…OMG YES…JACKMIN 4 LYFE. TO INFINITY AND BEYOND…’TIL DEATH DO US PART.

Ok. I’m done.

15& Profile: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/kpop-profiles/duopair/15-profile/

Also, you can find their Instagram and Twitter accounts on here, as well as their other official sites…

Official Celebrity Accounts: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/more-k-pop-information/official-celebrity-accounts/

And if you’re interested in getting to know them better (that is…if you don’t already know them), then come check these videos out! I promise you, you’ll find yourself falling in love with them too (;

So, that’s all for today! I’m signing off for the night. Goodnight all Mandu-ers out there, and don’t forget to always share the K-pop love ❤

[UPDATE] Updated AOA Profile + New Profiles + Official Accounts + New Page!!

Today’s update is as follows:

1) I was going through Twitter and came across somebody tweeting a link of our AOA profile to a friend of theirs (probably because they’re new to the fandom and wanted to get to know each member’s name), but they also said that the profile was old and that they would send them another link to a new, updated, and more accurate profile. I was, like, WTF MAN I NEED TO GO FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY. I guess my inner competitive side was starting to break the mold, because instantly I felt like SuMandu wasn’t living up to my expectations of being a top-notch provider on all things K-pop. And so, after reading that I opened up our AOA page and got to work right away. Then ta-da! Here we are now with a newly updated AOA profile. I made sure to include juicy trivia facts (because that’s how I like to roll, y’know), added their blood types, and I changed all of their old photos to more recent snaps of them. Here on SuMandu, I like to keep things fresh, ya feel me?

Now, one thing I want to mention about AOA that explains why I like them so much is because they’re not just a group, but a  band, too. Like, a legit, straight-up, hands down, full on band. But there’s also more to it. Here’s the scoop:

Originally, it used to be that AOA’s band and idol group had practiced separately from each other. There were two teams, called the White Team and the Black Team, and the White Team would have practices early in the morning and the Black Team would likewise do so in the afternoon. However, now, there are no White and Black Teams, and instead both the band and the idol group have practice simultaneously. In other words, the band practices with their instruments while the idol group has dance practice. The reason why I like this is because it fosters a better, more interactive relationship amongst the members. By keeping the practice within the same time slot, they have more time to practice as both a “band + dance” group. This way of tackling the matter works symbiotically – it benefits both sides of the spectrum. It’s so much more efficient as it if effective. And the fact that the company enables them to work this way is just overall creating a healthier environment for the members to work in together as a functioning unit, not as divided entities.

Anyways…I’m getting off topic. AOA has a lot of jutzpah to their name, and they’re definitely living up to it. As I mentioned in my previous post where I talked about K-pop’s transformation in the past five years and how it’s making a major comeback this year, I touched down on the fact that rookie groups of late are definitely the “in” thing, and AOA is living proof of it. If you guys don’t already know it, I’ve always been more into girl groups when I first fell into the K-pop fandom (After School, 2NE1, Sistar are my absolute all time favorites, even though it was a boy group who got me into K-pop in the first place), but recently I have been falling for boy groups just as much (2PM, U-Kiss, Got7, Infinite). However, AOA is slowly and steadily creeping up onto my bias list and wrecking things up. They have got some seriously nice bodies too. Nice enough to compete with Secret, Sistar, and After School.

So, if you guys want to find out more about this girl group that is more than what they seem, click on over to their profile!

AOA (Ace of Angels) Profile: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/kpop-profiles/girl-groups/aoa-ace-of-angels-profile/

2) As promised, I have two new profiles for you guys. And also as promised, they are Eric Nam’s profile and Akdong Musician’s profile. These profiles were actually quite fun to make! I’ll admit that. Eric Nam in general is such a spunky, funky, cool and fresh dude that his profile is a joy to read. Automatically you’ll start to feel like you’ve been best friends forever. I’m actually very glad that Eric Nam decided to enter this business, because he brings such a refreshing vibe to K-pop that I think he might be one of the very few but important artists who can act as catalysts and slowly push the concept of what K-pop is towards something much more real and substantial. Yet AKMU on the other hand — although there isn’t a lot of information about them that is available yet — is quite the original and bright duo that their profile one-hundred per cent felt like I was sincerely trying to get to know them better on the scale of an endearing fan’s perspective. So if I felt that way, maybe you will too?

Eric Nam Profile: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/kpop-profiles/solo-artists/eric-nam-profile/

Akdong Musician (AKMU) Profile: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/kpop-profiles/duopair/dynamic-duo-profile-2/

OMG yeah and AKMU’s new song “I Love You” is totally giving me the feels, man. Totes. Can someone tell me who that guy (Soohyun’s love interest) in the MV is? BECAUSE HE IS ABSOLUTELY ADORBS.

3) Of course, as I’ve been doing so in the past, I continue to do so now the tradition of making a new profile and simultaneously adding the official accounts paired with the members of said profiles to the Official Celebrity Accounts page. SO CHECK THOSE OUT ALL OF YOU HARDCORE DIE HARD FANS OUT THERE.

Official Celebrity Accounts: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/more-k-pop-information/official-celebrity-accounts/

3) As you may or may not know (you probably don’t, though), I’m working on an entirely new section of this blog called “The Hallyu Wave”, featuring more personal pieces such as reviews, critiques, showdowns, blah blah blah. Well, I’ve added on another page under “The Hallyu Wave” called “Korean Games“, where we’ll give you the full-on breakdown and 101 on some of the most popular and common Korean hand games, drinking games, and board games (????) alike! So if you want a better break down, just click on the following link, and be prepared for when we start posting more pages!

Korean Games: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/the-hallyu-wave/games-quizzes-2/

4) Quickly, I must mention that it has only been about a week or so since I’ve been back, and I’m still making adjustments to this site as a whole. As a part of that, I’ll have to tell you guys now that if you’re looking for some Twitter accounts of duos or solo artists (keep in mind, the profiles of duos and solo artists who have been published before 2013), then you should be able to find them on their individual profiles and not on the Official Celebrity Accounts page…or at least, just for right now. In time, I’ll make the adjustment to have ALL official accounts (including Twitter) listed under our Official Celebrity Accounts page, but for now, things aren’t as organized as I want them to be.

~~

And that’s, that! I’m going to continue working on the site, since I’m not completely finished with some things here. I’ll post again later! Make sure to check our Twitter, too, if you want to keep more up-to-date. I’m off to work on some new pages under The Hallyu Wave section, and then update our Block B. profile (I’ve got some major trivia facts for you guys…just you wait!)

Toodle-loo fellow Mandu-ers!
