You may have noticed some changes on Soompi – that’s right, we’ve finally given ourselves a makeover! If you want to get all the details on the new look and the new features, head to the second page of this article.
As one of the oldest sites on the web (according to me and the fact that we were founded in 1998), Soompi has seen more than its fair share of makeovers. Sometimes, we like to sit back and enjoy the old designs that were definitely (according to our founder Soomp herself) the absolute hippest of the hip 10+ years ago.
Let’s take a quick moment to gaze lovingly at the original Soompi (and please let us know if you remember any of these designs!):
2011- Literally Today
Despite all of the cosmetic changes, one thing that hasn’t changed on Soompi is the people that make it what it is. We’re talking about all of you Soompiers who have stayed with us from the days of blogs, then forums, then news. Fun fact: our founder, Soomp, is still part of the team and, though her bias group continues to change since her early H.O.T days, she’s still keeping up with the K-pop scene.
Soompi has always been a community website that has taken pride in every single person that makes up our community. And to celebrate the heart of Soompi, you, we are giving away special goodie bags to celebrate our makeover and launching the newest iteration of Soompi.
Want to win a bag full of Soompi swag worth over $100, which includes “K-pop Trash” merch, throwback albums like SHINee’s “Hello” and 2NE1’s 1st Mini Album, makeup from our brand partner Soko Glam, and ROOY’s official Running Man shoes? Enter below:
