Now that the details for SA SAIL have been mostly ironed out, I'd like to introduce my next design, GMK Red Devils, inspired by the South Korean national soccer team and of course, Zambumon's GMK Striker. Even though this team has achieved only modest success on the world stage, few things stir up Korean national pride and unity as supporting their team in a major tournament.


Colors

While the team has traditionally worn red and blue, I’ve chosen to go with the color scheme of their current kit--red and black--for a more modern look:



A note about the red: It’s really more of a deep pink almost, a very pleasing hue if I do say so myself.

Kits

Base

The base kit has compatibility for the most popular layouts in the community, from 60% up to TKL, and features the reworked icon mods introduced with GMK 8008/9009. It also includes accent options for Esc and Enter, a second Tab so you can outfit a second board with full modifiers, swaps for a Mac-oriented bottom row, and various spacebar sizes.



Numpad

The Numpad kit adds compatibility for layouts with a numpad, including 1800 layouts.



Forties & Split

The Forties & Split kit adds support for 40% layouts, both staggered and ortholinear, and split spacebar boards. It also includes full accent options for Esc and Enter.



Taegukgi

The Taegukgi kit is a small novelty kit taking inspiration from the flag of South Korea. It adds a strong graphic element to the set and would also pair nicely with GMK Minimal.




Deskpad

The Korean Wave

An abstract representation of the Taeguk (Korean Yin/Yang) in the form of a wave. Stitching will be black.








Renders

TGR Jane



Keycult No. 1/65





RAMA M60-A






FAQs

1. What is 화이팅? 화이팅 (hwaiting), is a Korean word of support or encouragement, derived from a Konglish borrowing of the English word “Fighting!” It is frequently used as a cheer in sports or whenever a challenge such as a difficult test or unpleasant assignment is met. It can be translated as “Come on!” or “Let’s go!”

2. What do the symbols in the Taegukgi kit mean? These are trigrams, or 괘 (gwae), that you may recognize from the flag of South Korea. They actually can mean a myriad of things—including the cardinal directions. See below chart from Wikipedia:



3. NE ISO avail? There are no plans for ISO support at this time. Sorry.

4. NE extras (i.e. artisans) avail? A RAMA artisan is planned. If you would like to contribute an artisan or cable to this project, feel free to reach out to me. I also have a couple of ideas of my own that I can share.

EDIT: I just realized it's not all the trigrams. =[ Oh well, still very cool.

This coloway is ideal for adding highlights to other sets with enter, esc, backspace and maybe control keys as well. You may want to consider to offer a set for that purpose.

Really like this. The only feedback I'd give is I'd love if the numpad kits would have the sublegends like they used to. They look a lot better with the PgUp, PgDn, etc. sublegends.

Would be +1 on this because it's consistent with how the sublegends add to the main cluster alphas, *unless* a single-legend alphas kit will exist.

Some changes I'd like to suggest / know if it's possible:

- Icon + Text mods
- R5 bottom row
- Inclusion of some blue?



Let me answer you first, since you asked for blue. This set was very much inspired by the team's current uniforms (red and black), which I feel is a more "modern" look. As such, my design decisions were guided by this "modern" aesthetic. If you look at the uniform in the photo above, you'll notice it doesn't have any extraneous details on it. There are no flourishes or extra style lines. It's just the essentials: team crest, number, kit manufacturer logo, and authenticity tag. Unfortunately because of this...

- There will be no Icon+Text mods
- R0/5 also feels more vintage than modern to me, so no to that as well
- Finally, there will be no blue, other than what's on the deskpad

kinda dank

edit: im afraid i will have to change my "pretty dank" to a "kinda dank" on account of the centered icon mods

Unfortunately, I feel quite strongly about using Janglad's new icon mods to go along with the whole "modern" look I mentioned in my reply to Lightning.

Maybe having a 한자 and 한/영 Key might be something to consider ?

Good suggestion. It will be added.

Good set. Keep numpad in base.

Unfortunately, that probably won't happen.

This coloway is ideal for adding highlights to other sets with enter, esc, backspace and maybe control keys as well. You may want to consider to offer a set for that purpose.

Unfortunately, I think that will be too many kits.

Quick we need another GMK set, said no one ever.

Yes, I realize we are swimming in GMK sets right now. I did consider running this with a different manufacturer, but the depth of saturation of this color and the minimalism of Janglad's new icon mods, pushed my decision towards GMK.

RAMA keycap of the Taeguk circle please

The cap has already been designed. Unfortunately, it won't be the Taeguk. I actually inquired about doing the Taeguk, but it would require the red and blue halves be separated by 0.4mm, which is actually kind of a lot on a keycap.

+1 also mebbe korean only legends?

I would like the look of that. Unfortunately, I am not a great touch typer in English, so that's probably not going to happen. Sorry!

Well, the team is called the Taeguk Warriors and they don't have a Taeguk on their kits. I agree that it's perhaps not the best name, but I'm not sure what else to call it. Open to suggestions.

Nicely done mate, but the Title "Taeguk" is weird.
As you know, The pattern "Taeguk" often refers to "three-Taeguk" in the form of a mixture of blue, red, and yellow, or "Taeguk" in the form of a circle of red / blue. However, there are no elements representing these "Taeguk" in these set, and titles like "red devils" are more appropriate. :confused:

I'm looking forward to this set. thanks! :thumb:

A note about the red: It’s really more of a deep pink almost, a very pleasing hue if I do say so myself.

This is my only concern. The keys in the renders look RED. The pantone chip as you say looks a fair amount lighter. My preference is for what's in the renders, but that's just me. But love the idea behind the set.

Yeah, badass. Wish we could get the 4 missing trigrams though. Any chance of that? So close to full bagua.

I will consider this addition but need to work out key placement and how many keys it will actually add to the kit.

If the red irl can actually match the red of the renders... I might actually take this over GMK Classic Red, ceteris paribus (all other things equal).

It's the same color. It's just the lighting I took the picture in makes it look more pink. It's a hard color to capture, for sure. I added an image to the OP that shows how the color looks on Pantone's website.

Red devils? That'd be confusing because the football equivalent of red devils is Manchester United

Thank you! I very much appreciate it. I'm getting this regardless, but if full bagua you can guarantee MOQ as I'll buy a bunch of kits myself.

The problem with Bagua is that the meanings of the trigrams change from when there's only 4. On top of that, it also changes based on which version of the Bagua you choose, Earlier Heaven or Later Heaven. At that point, it's starting to get away from the point of the set in the first place.

For sure. I think Wen is more common but the math of Fu Xi makes a lot more sense.

Anyway I hear you. True true. Happy to have any trigrams on my board. ^__^ Thanks for putting this out.

Not to be a buzzkill, but I'm pretty sure the Red Devils is the name of the Belgian national soccer team. As a Belgian, I was surprised to see someone having an IC for our national team, until I was and recognized the first render.

Case in point.

It's a non-issue to me, really. There are more than a dozen professional teams with Red Devil as their nickname, as you can see from the below list from Wikipedia:



Who's to say one has more of a right to the name than the other?

Deskpad renders have been added to the OP.

Also want to take some time to give a quick summary of the changes/additions that are confirmed and that are under consideration:

Confirmed Changes/Additions:

- R4 한자 and 한/영 keys, just not sure which sizes they will be yet
- A couple of blue keys in the Taegukgi kit, since the flag does have blue on it (no, there won't be a salty key in Italy colors, that was a joke). And when I say a couple, I do mean only a couple. It definitely won't have full accent coverage like the 40s kit. So probably R1 Esc and R3 Enter for sure, maybe numpad Enter as well.

Changes/Additions Under Consideration:

- Navigational sublegends on the numpad keys
- F13 key in base kit
- Mono Hangul kit in red? TBH, I'm doubtful this kit can make MOQ. Plus, it would require new molds on GMK's part, which means higher prices across all kits.
- Changing 화이팅 to 대한민국. Someone suggested this in the IC form. I went with 화이팅 initially because it makes the set a little less serious, even if it's a little cheesy. 대한민국 feels much more serious for some reason, although I can understand why some people would prefer it. I'm not opposed to this change but wanted to put it out there and let you guys discuss.

I've created a new form to gather some data on the above proposals. Please take some time to fill it out!

Would that be a copyright issue? I was instead hoping that someone could create an artisan sculpt of something similar, but I'm not too familiar with the various artisan makers out there. If someone could help point me in the right direction that would be helpful.

Taeguk is not possible without tripleshot capabilities. It would have to be an artisan, perhaps of a Korean drum.
