ATTENTION: We’re Back Online!!!

All SuMandu-ers out there, how have you been? We’re back, and we’re ready to get this show on the road once more.

For this fall season, here’s what to expect.


1) Less idol profiles & more celebrity profiles 

– What does this mean? Simply put, our aim is to expand our audience to envelop not only Kpop groups, but actors, models, TV hosts, and Ulzzangs as well. In this sense, we hope to bring something new and fresh to the table to keep you guys — the SuMandu-ers — interested and always in-the-know, and us guys – the SuMandu Team – innovative and always up-to-date. Therefore, please anticipate some different publications in weeks to come!

2) More conversation

– Don’t forget…we have a Twitter page!! TALK to us. NAG us. FOLLOW us and let us know what it is you want to see on the site. We’re keen to developing strong, virtual relationships with our followers.

3) Updated “Hallyu Wave” Pages 

– One thing we really want to see blooming is our new “The Hallyu Wave” page. It’s been in the works for quite some while now, but now is the moment to take advantage of some great information and put it to good use! Look out for that.


And there you have it – our three initiatives. Join us in our fight to bring them to life. Come along on this journey with us, and we can grow together. SuMandu-ers, unite!

Continue to show support, and as always…don’t forget to share the Kpop love ❤

– SuMandu Team

[UPDATE] New Affiliate: WELCOME KPOP LISTS + The Official Celebrity Accounts Page Has Been REVAMPED + New Photos on Boyfriend Profile + WE NEED YOUR HELP STARLIGHTS & MELODIES

HERRO! (Imagine me saying that in Amber’s voice)

First thing’s first. We would like to introduce to you Mandu-ers a new affiliate of ours: welcome one and all, Kpop Lists!!! Yay! Check them out on their website to discover an extensive amount of information neatly compacted into these things called “lists” (I’ve never heard of them before, but they sure do seem to be quite beneficial) to help you discover everything you’ll ever need to know about the K-pop fandom. Oh! And while you’re at it, follow them on Twitter too. They’ll keep ya updated as they go.

Affiliates Page: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/about/affiliates/

And as for our second bit of information for y’all…we spent a tad bit of time (and by a tad, I mean A LOT) revamping our Official Celebrity Accounts page. We put in the Instagram accounts for a lot of groups, seeing as that at the time the page was first published, Instagram wasn’t as big as it is now, and in the time between then and now a lot of idols have created IG profiles. SOOOO, we went ahead and inserted those all in. Likewise, someone tipped us off on me2day recently shutting down (this was something we weren’t aware of). So once we found out, we went ahead and deleted all of the me2day accounts on the accounts page as well. All in all, we put in some things…got rid of some things…blah blah blah. Check it out!

Well, that’s that! We’ll continue to work on updating Block B and ChoColat’s profile for now.

OH BTW. If you guys would be so kind to help out (especially all of you Starlights and Melodies out there), we want to add more trivia/fun facts to our VIXX and BTOB profiles. Someone posted on Twitter that Got7’s profile was pretty extensive (hehe she noticed that I was a fan I’m guilty I admit) in comparison to VIXX’s and BTOB’s, so I want to change that. If you guys know any bit of helpful/informative fun facts on these two groups, then shoot us an e-mail at sumandu.wordpress@gmail.com. Now of course, we won’t just go ahead and take your word for it at first glance. We’ll make sure to back up any and all information you send us with research, so that we don’t post anything that isn’t true. We’ll give credit to you as well.

Okay! That’s it for today. Sadly, YG trolled us on WINNER’s debut (we should’ve saw that coming), so we’re going to cry. Jk. Until next time; and don’t forget to share the K-pop love ❤

[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.

WINNER Profile: https://sumandu.wordpress.com/kpop-profiles/boy-groups/winner-profile/

Also, with making a new profile, we likewise went ahead and added all of their official accounts to our Official Celebrity Accounts page. Check this out if you’re looking for their Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Naver Cafe, etc. etc. etc.

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

Okay. That’s all for our update today. The next profile we will work on will be Topp Dogg’s profile, and we’ll also update ChoColat’s profile.  So be on the lookout for those changes!

Much love,

– Jomarie (:

[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 ❤

VOTING IS OVER! The Next Profiles…

One week after the opening of our voting polls, we are now proud to announce the order in which the next seventeen profiles will be made. Now, also keep in mind that although this IS the final order of which the profiles will be made, if we feel like making a profile for somebody who is not included in this official list, then we may do so at any time. With that said, let’s take a look at how the results came in!

In first place, we have none other than WINNER with 107 votes!!! Not much of a surprise here, eh? We know, we voted for them too…we’re guilty of it. The next sixteen profiles are as follows:

2nd Place: Topp Dogg w/ 87 votes

3rd Place: History w/ 40 votes

4th Place: Kiss&Cry w/ 25 votes

5th Place: Halo w/ 24 votes

6th Place: LU:KAS w/ 19 votes

7th Place: LC9 w/ 18 votes

8th Place: B.I.G w/ 17 votes

9th place: Mamamoo w/ 16 votes

10th Place: AlphaBAT w/ 13 votes

11th Place: G.I. (Global Icon) w/ 9 votes

12th Place: Wonder Boyz w/ 8 votes

13th Place: Ulala Session w/ 7 votes

14th Place: WINGS w/ 5 votes

15th Place: Blady w/ 3 votes

16th Place: Troy w/ 2 vote

Last Place: N.O.M (Nature of Man) w/ 2 votes

[Jomarie’s Note] I’m surprised a bit, I must admit. I absolutely love  the company Brand New Music. I think they are a genius record label. They have signed with some serious, legit artists, including Verbal Jint, Miss $, San E, Bumkey, and Swings; and now their new rookie boy group Troy that just debuted this year has some major potential..enough to follow in the footsteps of their sunbaes. Maybe it’s just me though, because I’m a total die-hard rap/R&B fan…and you guys are more into pop. /le sigh But that’s alright! However, I thought WINGS had a reaaally great debut. Their song “Hair Short” is fantabulous, and it showcases their excellent vocal skills. And Wonder Boyz…dude…”Tarzan” is my jaaaaam. But I digress. I can see why N.O.M is last. Ke ke ke ke ke ke ke. We all understand how confusing that group is. Their debut song was one thing, but man that other song (we all know what I’m talking about) was a whole different level of complete, absolute wut. Nuff said.

Now with voting finally out of the way, we can finally get started working on them! Wish us luck, and follow us on Twitter to keep posted on when we’ll publish these profiles. Thanks for participating, and we love you all. ❤

[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 ❤
