F.A.Q.

Q: What is this Soompi Ulzzang Contest?
A: Soompi Ulzzang is a yearly tradition going back to 2006 or so. “Ulzzang” is slang for “best face” in Korean, and these selcas were how some celebrities got their starts, the most famous being Goo Hye Sun. Our last winner is now a member of Nega Network‘s boy group, LC9, and this year’s winners and runners-up will get video interviews with the agency. Check out our previous articles here and here, and our very informative forum thread.

Q: What browsers do you recommend for voting?
A: The voting interface works on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 10. Use all other browsers at your own risk.

Q: Can I vote from my phone?
A: Probably not – there are just too many entries at this point. Perhaps things will change by later rounds, perhaps not ^^;

Q: Can I create many accounts to vote for myself?
A: We are closely monitoring any suspicious activity, so don’t get any funny ideas! But you are welcome to gather the support of your family and friends, so get to it!

Q: I just can’t login to vote!
A: Try refreshing the page after you login, and then again. If it still doesn’t work, try a different browser, even if you are using one of the recommended ones. You can just never tell about these things >_<

More questions and answers to be added as they come up.

Yes. The popularity thing is really an issue here. :( As I have mentioned before, I hope the winners will be judged more on their face and not on the number of votes (still considering the votes but for a smaller percentage ^^) :)

I hope the winners will be announced sooon. :3

I like how it's a popularity thing that are keeping people in the final cuz they knoow it's an easy win when you have thousands of followers. It's not fair for the not well known ones. The not well know ones are pretty and have talent.

I voted for KAREULO because he's good looking and has a really nice voice. For the girls I voted for myloveiswaterm because her voice is soooo sweet and beautiful. My second favorites were imjustjeon because his cover of Ringa Linga was really good, and brendamao because her cover was also really good. I really hope at least one of these 4 win!

It's an Ulzzang contest guys. Best face???? So it means we vote for the one we think is the prettiest. This isn't a talent competition.

The only unfair thing about this is those who are cheating e.g creating multiple accounts to vote. Not because they're just a pretty face.

This contest is probably the worst one I've ever seen. It's not really competition, but mostly a fan-cheating-not talent needed-competition. Besides having a "pretty face", a person should at least have some talent. This is a great opportunity for anyone who wins it, but at least you have to deserve it. I wish I hadn't known about Soompi because it seriously annoys me. PLUS, old fans keep on cheating just to get the person they want to the top. TOTAL CRAP!

i'm sorry but that EJM guy seemed so conceited... alot of the guys didn't really seem to have any particular talents but Jaeshin had decent singing so i voted for him. The girls were a little bit better and i really like Brenda Mao cuz that was an awesome cover of teen top, so i voted for her xD i thought i was gonna hate her because i based off looks and tbh her look wasn't my favorite but she had the best in talent.. in close second was the cup song girl, i liked her too. :D

Putting up videos is such a good idea since we're able to take a better look on them by this. This method should be used again in the next contest :)

Actually I saw many people edited their photo , this is so unfair to the others participation who didn't edit their photo and they can make it to the final round.

I really hope the company chooses the winner by his/her talents. There are a lot of contestants that are getting votes not because of their talents but because of fans base. If someone with no talent wins, this will probably be the most skewed contest ever:(

I am not voting for the popular ones but those I think deserve it. I voted for Jaeshin & Brendamao, and a few others but those two are my top favorites!! Btw for those wanting to see Jaeshin without makeup just go to his instagram and scroll down, ^_^

It really annoys the rest of us that mostly for the girl that's gonna win this, would be a popularity contest, let the pretty but talented singer win this. Make their dreams come true. Not just you have so much popularity and beauty. But as beauty with alot of talent.

Wow it is just not fair how some people are beautiful and talented.

liyondlai is the best dancer and geegeet has the best voice for sure...

when is round 4 starting?, do we vote? or does the company decide on who's the winner?

The contest is pretty rigged on popularity, it's not about genuine Ulzzang looks at all. because of some of the really pretty or handsome natural people got eliminated not for their gifts but for their lack of followers or fans ob Facebook.

@Stocking ulzzang? more like popularity. look at rinnie and her followers, look at brenda and her followers.

I agree with the fan-cheating part. You can’t control people though. So I guess, the best solution to this is to make it a 50-50 decision. 50% comes from the votes. 50% comes from the company. :)

And the talent part. I don’t fully agree on that. This is an Ulzzang contest. Which means you basically compete with your looks. The talents are just the extra stuff to make things more interesting. :)

This is a great opportunity, really. And whoever wins this might really be deserving. Even if it’s because of the fans. Having fans means you have the charm and the looks, obviously. :)

And don’t say that this is ’TOTAL CRAP’. Because, as you have mentioned earlier, this is a great opportunity. So how can something so helpful be what you call ’crap’?

The bottomline is, you are right about the cheating part and everything you said is just your opinion. You could have said it in a nicer way though. :) This is just my opinion too. :)

@korrainell Just because I am studying and I'm bored, I will sing you a lullaby in spanish "Duerme mi niño, duermete ya. Que viene el coco y te comera."

hello! yeah I NEVER GET MY SUPPORTERS to make multiple accout s, thats beyond my knowledge, i am following the rules, i never posted on each of my SNS account for them to make dummy accounts just to vote for me, im not the desperate to win. imj ust explaining my side^^ u can check my sns if i ever posted asking them to make multiple accounts. i gathered all my votes fair and square. thanks ^^

jabbycassie

@korrainell It's not Lee Jaeshin's fault though. He just promotes himself but he never asked his fans to use multiple accounts. I mean, who would want to risk being disqualified by doing that? I'm not a fan of his (If you're thinking that's the reason why I am defending him). Who knows? Maybe others have fans like that too, who secretly make multiple accounts for their idol. :) 

brendamao

the rules say that you can't be creating multiple accounts and I'm not breaking that rule^^ im just giving my followers a choice, they don't have to vote for me lol but if it's against the rules then I'll take it down

it's better to message me to let me know about it instead of posting it here without knowing anything bby

@aounet the winner and the second will have a interview with Nega network ...and for my part...I only used little make up in the first round and lip balm in the third and last round..I'm not sure about the others but don't judge them

@Lay Le why are you blaming me for what one person is doing lol I didn't ask anyone to vote on multiple accounts

@Lonnie Verdon  

I agree that we should vote for people who deserve it....just not the people you chose...because....really? no.

You just sound like one of Jaeshin's thousands of followers.

@extravagant lol if they are already popular it will get whatever company that picks them up more publicity. Don't you get it? It might be cruel but this is a BUSINESS, the company is spending money hoping to make more money which will be made by the fans supporting their favorites, who are the one already popular. The popular ones worked just as hard for their popularity as others have worked for to improve their talents and they can also improve. Welcome to the world of ulzzangs.

@extravagant 

Yes, I agree that a lot of this is a popularity contest, but two of my friends are in round 4 and neither of them have a facebook following. In fact, neither have even mentioned this contest on their facebooks or instagram at all. Also last contest's winners, Carlos and Witchery did not promote themselves either. Carlos ( E.den) entered twice before winning.

If I am being honest, I think some of the eliminated girls/guys deserve the shot more than some who made it, but everyone has different tastes.

@Lol Li yea not fair, people are using multiple accounts, not fair for the other people. there should be justice
