Giveaway: Keep Oppa Close With the Soompi App


Well Soompiers, let’s ring in the new year with a new way to keep up with the latest news!

Introducing the new Soompi app – the perfect way to keep up (or catch up) with the latest and greatest news right on your phone or tablet. Whether you’re on a mobile data squeeze or not, you can trust the Soompi app to give you all of our content without waiting for the full website to load – because nobody has time for that when you’re on the go.

Open the app and all of the latest articles are instantly there and ready to be perused at your leisure! Open one and swipe left or right to easily read them all. Click the speech bubble in the top right corner and, bam, you can join the discussion in the comments – all within our app.


You can also go ahead and collect all the articles from your faves – click the star to bookmark them to either read later or to keep handy in case you want to revisit their latest news to show off to your friends (or frenemies).


Another bonus? You can turn on notifications for your favorite categories of news so that you never miss a big story. You will never, ever be an out-of-the-loop fan. You’re welcome.


We currently have the app ready for Android and iOS – but our Android version is still in beta. Send us your feedback and help us improve the experience as we work on the improved version for 2016.

As an added bonus, we’re going to be giving away 5 YesAsia gift cards for you intelligent early adopters of our app.

Here’s how to enter:

1. Download the Soompi App on the Google Play store or iTunes app store.

2. Post a photo of the icon on your phone in the comments below. Here’s my sample:


Winners will be chosen on 1/5 (UPDATE: the giveaway now runs through 1/7! Two more days to enter and win~) and contacted through the Soompi email associated with your account. Let’s hope the new year brings you luck!

Happy 2016 and here’s to a another great year of Korean entertainment!
