Seoul is, of course, the approximate location of Soom. They’re actually located in Bucheon, which is less than 20 miles from Seoul, but Seoul works for my calculating purposes.
Local time in Seoul/Bucheon is vital info for BJD nerds waiting for Soom dolls to go on sale at a certain date/time or, in my case, lottery winners to be announced. I put my name in the Post MD lottery event for an Auber in WS with outfit, and the winners of the event will be announced in the afternoon of January 15th [Korean local time, of course]. There’s no time specified for the annoucement, so I just know that, at noon local time, Soom’s Web site will be inundated with enthusiasts checking to see if the winners have been posted because, technically speaking, it will be the afternoon.
I’ll try giving ’em a poke around my bed time this evening. If nothing happens, they should have the announcement up by tomorrow morning.
EDIT: Oh, I forgot to mention that, if I get this doll, he’s going to be a 1:6 scale resin version of my Jareth. That is what I originally envisioned him as, and that’s how he’s stuck in my head. Yes, I am aware that I already have a 1:6 scale action figure Jareth, as well as a 1:3 scale BJD Jareth. I’ve given up asking myself, "How do I justify this doll purchase?" Now my question is, "Can I afford this?"
