[GB] GMK Taegeukgi | GROUPBUY IS LIVE
« on: Wed, 21 October 2020, 03:03:14 »






Welcome to the GB Thread of GMK Taegeukgi!

Taegeukgi, which stands for the Flag of South Korea, is a keycap set completely revolving around said flag.

And as its name supposes, the keyset takes advantage of the natural beauty of the original, specified colors from the flag:

PANTONE 186 C (RED)  and PANTONE 294 C (BLUE), while adding GMK's WS1 (WHITE) to be the balance between those 2 bold colors.

This set features additional flag- and korean related items:

  • The Taegeuk (태극, The traditional Korean Symbol on the Flag)
  • The Trigrams (괘, called geon, ri, gam and gon)
  • South Koreas national flower (무궁화, Hibiscus syriacus (or Korean Rose))
  • Gyeongbokgung (경복궁, former main Royal Palace of Seoul)
  • Bune Tal (부네, one of the 12 traditional Hahoe Masks)

I really hope you enjoy this set.
Kits are designed to support as many layouts as possible.

 Just a note: By Monday, daylight savings time in Germany will be over, so the Keebstuff cables will coming out at 7PM CET, not CEST. Of course terribly nitpicky, but if someone is calculating time zone differences right now, they may be off by an hour and I don't know how limited these cables are. ;)
Best of luck with the group buy! /Johannes

Hi everybody,

I'd like to thank each and every one who participated in this adventure with me.
I appreaciate each and every one of you so much, from the bottom of my heart.
I want to also thank everyone who came back to me with overwhelming (positive) feedback, especially all Koreans, from Korea or all over the world, who messaged me. May it be with objective criticism, respect, or appreciation for this.

Thank you all that helped making this come to life.

And with that, very proud and humbled I say:


The order with GMK will be placed in the next days, and we'll take it from there.
I will get back to you as soon as there is news, colormatching wise or else...

Have a great week,
SMOKEY
