Cosplay in Korea.

Hi It's the first time to write something here. I'm so excited to meet many overseas people who like cosplay here.

I'm not an expert, but I wish I can say about our(Korean) cosplay's characteristic.
It's not a special thing but a little bit different.

Is there a stage performance? It's a big trend in Korea. It is like a play sometimes...Very exciting!
A year ago, I also liked that and took a part once but I quit..I'm so old that I can't do that any more..;;

One thing I don't like about cosplay in Korea is "Star cosplayer".
There are some very cute and pretty girls who love cosplay like any other people. However, because they are prettier than other people, some people think they are big star. They have fan site, even fan club.

I can't understand that. They have same hobby, and it's not a big thing.
Well...because of my poor english, I couldn't transmit my opinion well.... Excuse that.^-^;;

I'll write other things sometimes

Have a nice day.^^

hello! ^_^ my friend is fluent in Korean, maybe I can get her to post in here!

there are stage preformances here, we call them masquerades. lots of people preform and sometimes compete for prizes. ^^ I don't usually compete because I'm not competative, tho.

we have "star cosplayers" here, too. I don't like that, either. I think everyone should be equal and have fun.

see you around~ ^^

It's true we have some "star cosplayers". However, the main point is to have fun - and I don't think anyone can get too old to cosplay! *beams* It's all about having fun and meeting new people.

As for "stage performances" - as soshi said, most conventions will have a "Masquerade", for cosplay walk-ons, skits, dances, musicals, whatever. For the larger conventions, usually not everyone can see the Masquerades because so many people are in the audience. ;_;

Hey, I'm glad you decided to post here! And we understood your point, and your english insn't bad ^___^;; Yes, alot of people don't like the "star cosplayer" thing over here, I know a few sites where people "bash" those " star cosplayers". Lol, I doubt your to old to participate on the stage play ( masquerade ), and I enjoyed your website, its very nice! ^^

I thoght "Star cosplayers" only exist in Korea, but it was not. I'm a little bit surprised. I think the main point is having fun, as you guyz said.^-^/

Hi! : ) Wow, your a wonderful Cosplayer!!! : ) I'm so glad to see you post!!! Hahaha...Everybody knows I'm a very big fan of Korean things. I really like a lot of the Korean Cosplays I have seen!!! I think it shouldn't really matter about "Star Cosplayers" , as long as you have fun and you strive to be better is all that matters. : )

Ahnyong haseyo! ^_^; not sure if that's proper Korean, but I'm trying hard to learn because I take Tae Kwon Do. But anyways, you're right about those star cosplayers. I'm not trying to be mean to my fellow cosplayers when I say this, but there are some huge showoffs in the cosplay community (but not here at cosplay.com of course ^_-) and it annoys me! I think Masquerades are scary, I looked out at the audience and ran off the stage!

*huggles Sakura* Hey, at least you had the courage to even sign up for a Masquerade! ^^ I wouldn't have even gotten that far. Audiences are intimidating. ;_;

Hello! ^_^ Welcome to the forums!

We also have "star" cosplayers here and I think it's pretty much unavoidable in any major hobby scene.

At that time, we really wanted to win the 1st prize so we practiced and practiced all the time. And We were using some big weapons(not a real thing of course;;;.). He was hitten by a big, big club and fell down and... It was really horrible. However, he went to the stage with his big pain and we won. After that, he went into a hospital.-_-;;;;

Hi!

Nice to hear from a cosplayer from Korea too!

My country also got some "Star" Cosplayers but am happy that they are still very friendly and helpful to other cosplayers.

Frankly for my first love in Costuming (Anime/manga cosplaying is my 2nd), I'm being made the Star Cosplayer/Costumer cause I'm the only one seriously into it (Arrrhhh!!! I'm not that good yet!!! ).
