It seems that luck and Lady Fortune are on our side as Korean Cassiopeia have yet again acknowledged Tohosomnia!
Where did they do this, you ask?
None other than on Poplez, one of Korea's biggest Korean fan sites (similar to soompi but centralized around TVXQ)
Recently, we received an influx of Korean fans signing up to Tohosomnia, and our resident Korean translator (yours truly) went to investigate with one piece of information that they were from Poplez.
Lo and behold, I was able to chance upon a review of Tohosomnia written by a Korean Cassiopeia who signed up to TS!
A bigger surprise came today when Tohosomnia became the number one searched item on Poplez
At first, I thought it was only on the TVXQ thread, but after more research, I found that the search rankings were for the entire site of Poplez.
*throws confetti* Another building block set in the bridge between international and Korean fans, don't you think?
Congratulations to Tohosomnia and a big, big thank you to Seongeun for writing the review and Tess (Kay) for introducing our forum to her!

Heehee, I come today with something different than I usually write (_ _)
I went to the international fansite that Kay introduced me to, (the address is http://tohosomnia.net/)
At first, all I saw was the photo so I was like... Huh? How do I get in?
But then I realized it was similar to a Korean fansite I had been to so I clicked! the photo and.... a brand new world popped up!!!
I wanted to participate in the Shoutbox that had messages constantly popping up in the middle amidst all the English there..
So I signed up with some difficulty and went in....
It was a brand new world....
Like.... there was a nice and warm~ smell coming from them like the Paprika Cassies~
Although my English was very clumsy, they warmly said Welcome to TS! to me,
T_T.... they asked me if I was Korean, and asked if Seongeun was my real name~
But I was lurking 99.99999999999999999999999% of the time.... T_T....
I didn't understand them fully and I didn't know their real names... stuff like that...
But I was so lucky to have Kay with me T_T
After Kay left, I chatted with them for a bit and then said it was time to sleep,
and they said 'It's time to sleep in Korea? Goodnight~'
Anyway...... it was much a great experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (
Is that the conclusion?)
............No... Well..... I'm just saying..........
T/N: Brand New World a.k.a. 신세계 is a new slang term amongst Koreans that describes something they've never seen before that is amazing, awesome, etc.
Also Paprika Cassies is the name Cassies call themselves over at Poplez. Like Cassies at Yuaerubi call themselves YuaeCassies

P.S. Thank you to all the Somniacs who helped our new Korean friends out and greeted them warmly! Especially a big thank you to Jas for trying to be the translator while I wasn't there
P.P.S. Our Korean member number increased by at least 12 members in the past two days, so if you see any of them, please don't forget to greet them warmly like you always do! TS has built up a great reputation of having warm and friendly members so thank you all for that <3
