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

Sooo not quite red then? Here’s the thing: I still want it. And now I have to save up for both this and Classic Red please take your time good sir.

Bagua request...

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

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.

have you considered a standalone alphas kit with korean only legends. For those touch typers out there, I can see this being a very nice option.

Sorry, I am unconvinced. This topic has already been addressed earlier in this thread.

The only thing I will add to it is that if anyone has the rights to the name (if that's even a thing) is the Belgian national team, which has gone by that nickname since 1905, long before Man U was given the name in 1934.

Ultimate challenge: fill your board with half of this set and half of Striker. Follow an actual match between the two teams and adjust the colors to reflect who is winning at the time. At the end of the match, the winner fills all slots.

If you refer to 'Pulse' or 'BLINK', I think it is cleaner to subtract the engraved consonants such as ㅃㅉㄸㄲ ㅆ. This neatness is a favorite among Koreans.
