Happy Thanksgiving! Soompi Is Thankful for…
This year on November 28, Americans will celebrate one of their favorite holidays, Thanksgiving. On this day family and friends will get together to watch parades and football games, and then consume thousands of calories by feasting on what will be one of the best dinners of the year. Then the tryptophan from the turkey will kick in, and everyone will unbutton a button or two as they drowsily think about all the things they are thankful for.
That’s how it’s supposed to be anyway, and that’s what the staff here at the Soompi Seoul headquarters are wistfully thinking about as we type type type away on our computers on this cold November day. We may not be able to make volcanoes out of mash potatoes and dribble down gravy like lava here in Korea, but we sure can think about all the things that we thankful for.
At Soompi we are thankful for our loved ones, our health, and all the comfortable first world luxuries we take advantage of in our lives, but we are also thankful for K-Pop and Soompi. K-Pop brings to our lives much color and excitement with its pretty faces, slick dance moves, trendy clothes, and catchy tunes. Soompi allows us express our uncontainable feels in a safe place full of awesome and like-minded people.
So here are what some of the editors, writers, and forum mods are thankful for, whether it be first generation idols or variety shows, or even JYP’s infamous plastic pants. Let’s celebrate this holiday together and share what you are thankful for in the comments below.
