We hit the big SEVEN! Cheers to everyone reading and celebrating with us at this very moment.
Here’s a glass (insert drink of your choice) and take a seat with us right now, as we show you seven simple reasons why Couch Kimchi is gladly celebrating another milestone with you. We feel grateful and blessed.
1. Authors – The CK Ladies
First of all, CK is not Couch Kimchi if not for the CK ladies. They make blogging more than just writing recaps and posts. We are a family! I am truly grateful that they have journeyed with me all these years. It’s easy to leave, coz we do have our personal life to keep us on our toes. But the fact that everyone stays, we still write, their presence is felt — Ange and Rinchan are still with us! Don’t you worry. This is an assurance that we will be here.
Writing articles and keeping CK updated daily is very hard. This year, Clockwatcher and Tessieroo have been lifting the heavy tasks of creating articles and rummaging the web to find the latest celebrity pictorial. We wouldn’t be able to survive the year without them. I can’t even keep up! I don’t know how they manage it. Heh.
Hats off to you, my dearest ladies! 💋
This one has been ticked off easily in our bucket list – if I may say so. We’ve been happily using our name as we live to write known as Couch Kimchi.
We are thankful to the K-drama community for allowing us to over share our endless love, rants and raves. It’s amazing to have a space to dump our fangirl obsessions, like nobody is reading it. And it feels great to have a name, we are doing our best to live by it, and protect it. We’ve been through a lot of obstacles as we try to keep our name intact. We couldn’t be more blessed that our readers can identify us easily.
Kudos to Clockwatcher for coming up with such a brilliant name. Nothing can describe US perfectly than this.
3. Featured Articles
Our hard-working CK Ladies have been showering us with the latest celebrity pictorial, on-going Korean Drama reviews and recaps or quote-caps, and we even took you on some concerts! We hope to cover more in the coming years.
The CK Duo — Clock & Tess, have been our pillars when it comes to collaborations. We know that our readers discovered and grew to love CK through them. We have been sharing celebrity magazine covers that helps us ogle on the hottest Oppa’s and upcoming stars that brightens up the ambiance here at the couch. Isn’t great to open our page staring at your favourite star? We feel you!
We are grateful to our readers who reads every piece of article we publish. We will continue to hustle hard to provide content for you.
4. Soompi – Contributor
CK begun our relationship with Soompi when they invited us to celebrate their 15th anniversary with a featured post in 2013. But we go way back from there since all of us are active members of Soompi. We are grateful for the Admin team behind Soompi for giving us the opportunity to write for them. We are known for the weekly Top K-drama Moments and Roundtable where the CK Ladies exchange thoughts on K-drama staples. Thanks to Soompi, we were able to gain more followers and readers.
It’s great to have good relationships with fellow bloggers who shares the love we have for the community we help built.
5. Facebook & Twitter
We opened our Facebook and Twitter handles in 2013 but we’ve been active only in using FB ever since.
This year, we finally started to use our OFFICIAL TWITTER account to reach out to more readers. We know how social media plays an important role in spreading readership. We refuse to place click baits. With that, we’re going to try to keep up with our online presence bringing our content closer to you.
Please like and follow our official accounts!
6. KCON LA – 2017 Assa! 아싸! Awards: Drama Review Blogger of the Year
Being nominated for something we love and care passionately about, seeing our name together with bloggers we admire, keeps us motivated. To this date, as I remember reading an email sent from the organisers of KCON LA, it still feels surreal. I never knew that by simply doing what we are passionate for, it can bring about this kind of fulfilment.
THANK YOU to the voters and organisers of this event, who never fails to remember us!
If you have been with us for seven years, or even if you just recently discovered us, THANK YOU!
On behalf of the CK ladies, allow me to express our utmost gratitude for all your support and love for Couch Kimchi. There is no higher compliment than giving us your time to visit and read our written works.
Continue to journey with us as we strive to produce meaningful content for everyone to enjoy. There is always a seat here for you.
Happy reading! ❤️
