Good News: TVXQ/HoMin has Kakao Talk (카카오톡) [Bad News: It’s not available for certain countries]

posted in: Daily | 9

NOTICE: For those who still don’t know, KakaoTalk has already made PlusFriends available for overseas users ^^

I have this habit of checking the official TVXQ website, and imagine my reaction when I saw this:

If my understanding is correct, it says “TVXQ KakaoTalk Plus Friends Opening Information!”

Well, days before this news of SM Entertainment tying up with KakaoTalk came out. And so they’ve finally opened an KakaoTalk account andddd info on how to add the boys is available!!! So of course I clicked the link, and got my 6002theMicky (the iPhone 4) ready. This was the closest to a TVXQ twitter account we can get!

Instructions on how to add TVXQ on KakaoTalk (I think this one is for those using Android phones?):

1.  Open KakaoTalk > Go to Settings > Manage Friends > Plus Friends

2. Friend Settings > Find friends by Nickname > Input Artist

For iPhone users:

Manage Friends > Plus Friends

Basically you’re supposed to see TVXQ from a list of Plus Friends.

I did this immediately… And took screen caps: 

KakaoTalk: “Sorry, Plus Friend is currently not available in your country.”

Me: #@$%&#$%!!!!

SERIOUSLY SAD/DISAPPOINTED RN. /dies

Well, for sure it works for those who are in Korea/has a Korean phone number. I’m not sure if it is available for other countries, so if you guys have KakaoTalk, and live elsewhere besides Philippines/Korea, do try it out and let me know if it works for you? ^^

*sigh* Hopefully they make it available to more countries and users! Right now it’s just wowww too exclusive =/

It would really be wonderful if I could get KakaoTalk alerts telling me that TVXQ’s posted this and that and whatnot : ( Why can’t the boys just get twitter! OTL

Anyways, yea. I got too excited over nothing (for now). I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed and praying PlusFriends option will be available for those in the Philippines! Haha ^^

And a list of some of the available PlusFriends. As you can see everyone can be added by @USERNAME. Normally, you need to know someone’s phone number or KakaoTalk ID to be able to add them. With the new feature, the only thing needed is their username : D But again, only available to Korean users =_=

 

Honestly just… wow. KakaoTalk’s seriously expanding. Sort of like me2DAY, but phone based *_* Now please to make this available for everyone /cries

There have been updates already… Here are some screencaps:
