[IC] GMK HALLYU 한류
« on: Mon, 04 May 2020, 19:16:31 »



Hallyu (한류 in korean) means "The Korean Wave".

It refers to the increase in global popularity of South Korean culture since the 1990s.
With this set, I wanted to pay a tribute to Korea's pop culture through :
_ hangul sublegends
_ the bright colors on a darker background to symbolise night life and party spirit, and to represent the wave with the gradient
_ different icons : each one represents one aspect of Korea and its pop culture : korean cinema and k-drama (clapperboard icon) / food (bimbap bowl icon) / k-pop music (finger heart icon) /  korean alcoholic drink (bottle of soju icon) / korean beauty, skincare and makeup (eyelash icon).

I hope you enjoy it, let me know what you think about this first set  :D
You can find GMK Hallyu on Instagram @Bidulomachin  :thumb:

Unless you are looking to make new molds in creating those hangul sublegends, I suggest using the legends used in gmk pulse, or better making hangul only legends. The current ones have a fair bit of problems.

Neat set, OP. I'll follow this.

Unless you are looking to make new molds in creating those hangul sublegends, I suggest using the legends used in gmk pulse, or better making hangul only legends. The current ones have a fair bit of problems.

No thanks in using GMK PuLSE sublegends that ignore double-consonant characters and other tertiary legends.

Can you point out and elaborate on the "fair bit of problems" in the current set of sublegends?

The current legends have inconsistencies. I like to call the phenomenon the sudden fattening. Anyways these problems are not apparent in gmk pulse as they utilized an entirely new mold, and I bought a set to check. I dont find a problem with the monolegends as the modern look complements the modern theme, but thats up to the designer.

Consider making the following changes to the base kit:
  • Add R3 PgUp (peach) and R4 PgDn (yellow) for 65%/75% users.
  • Lock → Scroll, for consistency with Num.
  • Code → System/Sys, or Code → Super, to avoid the visual duplication of C in Control, Code. I think Super might make the most sense, given the theme.
  • Change the R4 \|₩ (yellow) key to R4 <> to avoid duplicate legends between the ISO keys.
  • (less important) Make one or both of the right Alt keys Alt Gr.

Also, is it me or are the 6.25u and 7u bars in the spacebars kit redundant?

Surely the greatest thing South Korea has given the world since the 90s is high end custom mechanical keyboards. This set needs a keycap With a classic TKL on it.

I second this; it would be nice to see a Hangul-only alpha set. Still awesome regardless.

The text mods feel weird given the theme, if hangul text mods are too expensive due to new molds could icon mods be done? Even as a separate kit I think they'd mark an improvement.

Thanks a lot to everybody for those positive feedbacks  :D

Very cool. Nice to see an uptick in hangul sets. Really like everything except the hallyu text mods in the night kit. It seems kind of bland imo

Interesting. "한류" seems to be the only letter based novelty, which feels a little weird. Can you come up with non-letter version?
The base color would look great with dark blues like sat75, chimera65, or prophet dark blue. Can you do a render of one of them?
I like the toned down but not boring color theme.

Yes I'll consider removing that one and drawing a new hallyu-related icon instead !


Consider making the following changes to the base kit:
  • Add R3 PgUp (peach) and R4 PgDn (yellow) for 65%/75% users.
  • Lock → Scroll, for consistency with Num.
  • Code → System/Sys, or Code → Super, to avoid the visual duplication of C in Control, Code. I think Super might make the most sense, given the theme.

Thanks, I will work on Adding R3 PgUp (peach) and R4 PgDn (yellow) for 65%/75% users and Lock → Scroll, for consistency with Num !

rama key!

Definitly ! I think an eyelash icon in brass would look cool !
