K-Pop Survivor is a survival game based off the hit reality show in which contestants are voted off each round until one contestant remains - the survivor! This is the one comm on livejournal where fandoms can go to war, all in the interest of fun and lulz of course.
How does it work? Well, idols are randomly sorted into groups (the quarter finals). Participants will have 2 days to place their votes for the idol they want to be eliminated. The idol with the highest amount of votes will be eliminated and this will continue until the number of idols is reduced enough for groups to be combined; a merger into a smaller number of groups (the semi finals).
Eventually there will only be enough idols left for the one group (the finals) and participants will vote to eliminate until just 2 idols remain. At this point participants will vote for the idol they want to win; last man (and woman) standing! There will be two seperate survivors taking place once a year - one female version and one male version. After their respective wins they will be pitted against one another to find out who is the ultimate survivor for the year!
At first it may seem a simple popularity game with the least popular idol leaving each round, but that's not true; K-Pop Survivor is an inherently strategic game, where you're encouraged to go all out to see the idol you support go as far as possible. Teams are formed, alliances between those teams are created and broken, and gifs and macros surface in an attempt to sway votes. Slander campaigns? Probable. Bribery? A given. Cheating on behalf of the mods to save their favourites?
Interested? We hoped you would be. All you have to do to take part is join the comm, but if you're unclear on the nature of the game, a clearer explanation is right here. Want to be part of the strategizing and manipulations? Check out the team formation post.
The game starts the 1st of August. We hope to see you there!
Come play and support Se7en and other members of the YG family! :D
