I recently came across a new Korean app that I found very interesting and that is the materialization of a dream for K-pop lovers. The app is called FROMM and it is a chat service where you can chat with your favorite artist. If you want to know more and which artists are part of this app keep reading.
FROMM is a paid application, so if you want to use it you must invest in a membership. As part of the pre-launch of an application, there are usually various benefits, as in the case of Kim Hyun Joong (who recently joined FROMM). In the pre-sale of the membership, he offered four types of packages, the first one was $54 a year and came with three photocards; the second was $30 for six months and came with three photocards as well; the third package was $15 for three months and came with one photocard and the last one was $5 a month that had no benefits. It should be noted that the cost is only for one artist, if you want to chat with more idols you will have to buy another membership or one that includes several artists.
This application works like a 1:1 chat between fan and artist. Like an Instagram or bubble for JYPnation app, with the difference that the artist can read all the messages of the subscribed fans, and the fans only see the artist’s messages and their own messages. It is worth noting that the more months of subscription you buy (i.e. three, six, or yearly), the more chance you have of being read by your artist, as the number of characters you can send increases depending on the type of membership you buy. I have the basic membership and I can say that the experience is amazing. Being able to chat and know a little more about Kim Hyun Joong’s daily life is wonderful.
Now, what surely interests you the most, which artists can you find? Listing them would be endless but I’ll name some of them like KIM HYUN JOONG, MINGI, YOUNG BIN, SOLAR, SWA, SEO HO, LEE DOO, HARTURO, and many more. If you are interested, I invite you to go through the application and if out of curiosity you want to try it, you can buy a one-month membership, I assure you that you will not regret it.
