1. What is theEROMAKNAE?
It is an international site dedicated to Minzy, 2NE1’s uber talented maknae.
2. How many people there are running EM?
As of today, we have a team made up of 17 staff members with equally distributed assignments. So far in tumblr, there are 5 admins:
Here are what the rest of our staffers do: http://eromaknae.wordpress.com/about/our-staff/
3. What are your sources?
2NE1 has various official sites which can be visited if you do want to get updates first hand, those sites are listed on our “2NE1/Minzy Links” sidebar. We also get some the contents from various Korean websites such as news sites, blogs, fansites, forums, etc. but that are too many to list. They do require some familiarity and possibly a little bit of understanding on the Korean Language to navigate around. If you do want to know the specific source of a certain post, just ask us and we will link you to it.
4. Who is Dougie and why does Dougie have a Twitter?
Dougie is Minzy’s beloved pet dog that acts as Minzy’s ‘PR Manager’ on Twitter. The actual person behind this ‘PR Manager’ image is no other than Minzy’s mum and occasionally, Minzy’s older sister. Using Twitter as a platform to reach out to the public, Dougie does various things as a PR Manager – communicate with fans on a daily basis, relay information about 2NE1 or Minzy’s solo activities, reveals never before pictures or information about Minzy, fanservicing etc. Occasionally, Minzy herself goes onto Dougie’s Twitter too to chat with fans, but that’s only once in a while
5. Do you guys do your own translations?
If it is up to our ability, we will try our very best to do our own translations. We have both Korean & Japanese translators on board on our team ^^
6. Why are you so strict when it comes to editing fantaken pictures and videos?
These are the rules and regulations set by the Korean fansites themselves. We, as international fans, have to respect those rules just like we resect any other. They do not want their credits to be removed, neither do they want their pictures to be edited as it would involve losing their credits on the picture. They are kind enough to let us reupload it to be shared with international fans.They could have selfishly just kept it from international fans, but they didn’t. The least we can do for them is to respect their wishes as to what can be done to their fanpictures / fanvideos. It’s a give and take relationship. And EROMAKNAE, as an international fansite for Minzy, help to convey those rules to our followers. We truly hope you understand the Kfans’ views about this.
7. Why do you guys get so sensitive when someone doesn’t credit you in your translations and/or the news you found?
If someone else takes the stuff that you personally found/translated and plasters his/her name on it as the credits, wouldn’t you get angry as well? That’s the answer.
8. Who made your theme?
The theme is from athenability but was tweaked.
9. This is not a question, but EM is usually mistaken for Minzy’s own tumblr blog.
We are reminding you guys, this is a tumblr dedicated to Minzy, not Minzy herself. If she is here, then all hell will break loose for Minjas are spazztic about it. ^^
