[Korean Magazine] Bromide – October 2015

Bromide Magazine October 2015

I almost finish reading this Korean magazine “Bromide” October 2015 – a magazine about Korean idols and Korean entertainment. There are only 2 articles left about TV programs: 복면가왕 (King of Masked Singer) and Unpretty Rap Star 2 that I might or might not read.

The real price of this magazine is 1000 won (12,000 rupiah). I purchased this on YES24Indonesia for 37,000 rupiah including shipping fee which I think is cheap, about the same price that I will pay for Indonesian magazines. For comparison, other Korean magazines like The Celebrity, Ceci, etc. cost about more than 200,000 rupiah (but they’re also super thick). I like that Bromide is cheap so I don’t feel guilty when getting rid of it later. And I already ruined it, by the way. But it’s not my fault the binding is not that great.

Bromide is only 44 pages long, as thin as a picture book for children. I think it’s mainly targeted for children, I mean, look at the advertisement for toys at the back.

Finger puppets?

Most, if not all, of the articles are praises about how wonderful a new boy band is, how beautiful this female idol is, and the like, and I felt like they were something that agencies would say to public to promote their artists. I think you can get more timely and even longer articles on the internet. I don’t mind, though, because I read to expand my vocab and I learned a lot of interesting new words from reading it. And I like it that all articles are short and it’s so thin so it’s possible to read it from cover to cover. ###
