    K-pop is going through a proper golden age. Amazing new songs seem to be coming out on a daily basis. Instead of spending 3 hours a day browsing through endless news articles, get everything delivered to your phone. You can even get your daily dose of K-drama through the same source.

    iPad app is ugly , needs to adapt to the iPad interface. Both iPad and iPhone apps need dark mode, please update to dark mode feature. If you can apply dark mode on website it has to be done on smart phones and iPads. Also Once signed in with account , app keeps signing me out, please fix this bug I am tired of signing in over and over again. Let us enjoy the app, don’t have us grow tired and delete the app for no solution or if bugs not being fixed

    I love this app! I love K-pop as well as K-dramas and this app helps me see what is happening in the industry. I also appreciate how fast the writers update new content and the articles are edited extremely well. I have had an issue with the 2019 soompi awards. The app will not allow me to see the winners or the video and I was just wondering if there is a way to fix this or not.
  • Notifications Bug!! Mar 23, 2019

    By Ivy541
    The app is great.. but I had been experienced with a bug? Basically, about several months ago, I updated the app, things went normally. Until one day, a notification popped up, well curiously, I clicked to check the new. Then I quit the app, but the red notifications is there.. so I tried to go back to the app to see notifications.. but it doesn’t go away.. I tried to wait for updates to fix this but nothing happens.. it seems like I’m only the only one that experienced this. Please fix! It bugged me so much!! Thank you! And I also tried to uninstall the app but the notifications is still there.

    i do love this app so much. it help me with the latest songs and dramas. i really hope you can find solution as soon as possible as the app cant access the internet. i installed and uninstalled a few times but it doesnt work. hope to have a new update to rectify the problems. thank you😊

    I'd hate to give a bad review but I'm disappointed in you Soompi. When I first downloaded the app, everything was fine and I was super excited to use the app. But now idk what happened. Nothing comes up when I search BTS but articles about them are there. When I refresh it just doubles or triples each article. On each category it's the same as the ones on HOME. And I can't really reload to see more articles. It is getting really frustrating using the app. It's was all good at first but idk now. 😔

    The writers of the articles are amazing and so specific. This gives me my daily dose of the tea and of all the other stuff I should know but don’t😂 only suggestion is notifications when someone comments to your comment. I feel it necessary to respond to certain comments of my comments at times but I have to go back and find them in order to do so. It is a real pain. That’s an update o hope to someday see:)

    It's convenient for reading on mobile, but still seems buggy after many years. My account will never sync and it won't properly show the artists/topics I've subscribed to, which kinda defeats the whole point of having them.

  • Amazing ! Dec 6, 2019

    By яσѕιє_qωєєи
    This is literally an amazing app! I get my daily information on all Korean news. personally I don’t really have any serious issues with it so it’s pretty fine for me but, I do hate the fact that it doesn’t alert me for specific articles that I would love to see. For example, I added bts to my fan clubs but, I just don’t get alerts unless I open the app. Yeah so that’s something you guys should take into consideration
  • amazing app but would love it if we were notified of certain things!! Apr 18, 2019

    By white.sand
    this is an amazing app and i use it every day. i love how there is korean news in english, as well as fun quizzes, fan clubs, exclusives, voting, etc. huge thank you to the soompi team for bringing this app to us!! one thing i feel like the app is lacking though is individualized notifications. for instance, if someone replied my comment that i left on an article, it would be great if i could be notified of that. or, since we have fan clubs, maybe some notifications if articles that have a certain fan club of ours in them? idk maybe these personalized notifications i’ve been talking about are already a thing, but if they aren’t, it would be a great addition to an amazing app.

    By PunishMeSenpai
    I LOVEEEEE this app so much only problem is I don’t get notifications for everything ?? Can we get an update where we can get notified for everything? I get notifications for certain things but not everything on this app. Whenever I get notified on a certain post i scroll down and there are some post that say it was posted like 5 minutes ago but I never got the notification for it so can you please update it where we can get notified for everything on this app that is the only complaint i have that is why I rate it so low.

    I really like this app because it updates me on a lot of things I didn’t know before but idk what’s wrong with it. I have to login again every time I go back to the app and because of this I don’t get any notifications from them. Also when I try to change my profile pic it keeps saying try again so I exit the app and go on it again and suddenly the new profile pic is there.

    Before I switch to iPhone X, I would get notifications but it wouldn’t lead directly to it or sometimes the app failed to update its articles as fast as the website. Also major updates needed for iPhone X users.

  • Great source for K-entertainment news! Mar 17, 2019

    By TookACookie
    I love that Soompi keeps me up to date on all the latest in Korea that I wouldn’t see otherwise. Especially love their drama lists and updates I can always bookmark and look up later so I always have something new to watch!
  • Amazing! Apr 6, 2019

    By KittyKumba
    Soompi really is a good app for kpop fans like me and many others. It gives us updates on things like comebacks and more recently Jimin’s donation to the students in Busan. I really love the app and I’m sure others enjoy it just as much as I do!

    All in all, this app is good. This is just a suggestion and you can ignore it, but it would be great if you can add a date filter feature so instead of endless scrolling, we can actually just filter like i want to read all ytd news, or any other date.

    The app is mostly good but now it won't let me vote on the awards. I press on who I want to vote for but the Vote button doesn't appear. It was working fine before, I don't know what changed. Edit: Thanks for responding to my review, I didn't know the date voting closed. Perhaps you could displaying a "voting has now closed" message on the voting page instead of just disabling the vote next time?

  • Good, but . . . . Feb 21, 2016

    By ( ' ~ ' )
    This app is good but I don't get notifications for every single new thing that is posted. I go on and see like 5 new articles but only got a notification for 1 of them. I also can't type on the quizzes. I'll try to type and the keyboard will come up and when I try to press a letter it'll go down several times before I can actually type. When I can the screen will keep lagging and freezing until it turns black and crashes.
  • Love the content, hate the crashing Oct 14, 2016

    By Doffy4
    Soompi has incredible content and are one of the best for all things hallyu. However, the app crashes every 10 seconds! I can't read one article without it crashing! It's been like this for weeks! I know they have a regular desktop website, but I tend to read articles and quizzes in-between breaks. Since I'm in college it's the only time I have, please make an update to fix this!!
  • Could be better Aug 26, 2016

    By Kookies and Tae
    I love this app but it really needs an update. I like how I can catch up on the latest news but I hate how if I would use it for a long time, it would glitch me out of the app. I like taking the quizzes but every time I try, it just loads and glitches me out again. I hope in the future the app improves. Overall a good app but could use some touch-ups.

  • Ok But Can’t Log In Jun 11, 2020

    By catsbah
    Recently the Soompi app is not communicating well with the Facebook app. I can’t log into Soompi with Facebook because it opens a browser window which tell me to download the FB app which opens the App Store which opens the FB app which dies nothing. It’s still usable. I get the articles but I can’t like or bookmark anything. It’s just frustrating. Other apps open the FB app to authenticate rather than a browser window
  • It's good until there's no news Feb 20, 2018

    By mini pets aaaaaasaaa
    When I go to check to see if there's new news but there won't be anything there. And I know there is new news because I follow them on twitter and there will be a lot of news that I didn't see on the app. Also when I load the app sometimes it duplicates articles over and over again when I’m trying to scroll down.
  • Sep 28, 2019

    The only reputable k-entertainment news app I've found. Not just music but actor and drama news is covered as well. There's also info on Cdramas and some Japanese centered things as well.
  • Great but... Mar 25, 2019

    By Stan Stray Kids UWU
    I wish we could turn on post notifications for specific artists!! I really want to get notified for all news about my faves like Stray Kids but the notifications are random and not related to who you follow which is annoying. Please add this feature!!
  • Mar 20, 2019

    By Fey Harper
    Today I went to vote for my faves. I went to collaborations and it would not acknoledge that I voted. Everything previosly says I have to wait till tommorrow. I would like to rate it higher for I love the ease to read articles. Alas I am mainly using it to vote. Update: I only voted once that day and it would not give me the message that my vote was accepted. Since then it has worked fine. Not sure if I shall keep it.
  • Lacking May 13, 2021

    By bigguy73
    It’s fine for what it is, however, if an actor/actress has a show on a streaming platform other than viki, then you won’t see that show on their credits. So, it’s just incomplete as a news source. And you can’t zoom in on any photos?!?!?
  • Jun 8, 2020

    By •spicy ramen•
    I really like this app so i can know what happens with people and all but it'd be better if the app gives notifications when something about the fanclubs we've added pops up. Also for a while now the app isnt letting me sign in saying that there's a problem with connection when everything else works perfectly fine. So please can you fix that?
  • Login Trouble May 17, 2020

    By sewchibi
    It used to be a fun way to catch up on k-pop/drama news but it’s literally 75% articles of BTS. they just update articles of other artists but it’s legit, every other article a BTS article. It’s so boring I don’t ever use the app anymore. It’s such a joke.
