HEY OMONA!! It's done! 1163 of you lovely Omonians and readers took the survey, and the results are in! Let's take a look at how Omona has changed (or not) over the last 3 years:
[General Data]General Data
The first thing to note is that this year we only had 1163 participants. Less than half of the 2639 that answered the last survey in 2013.
Most of our fellow Omonians and readers fall in the 18-24 age bracket, but not surprisingly the community as a whole are a lot older now than we were in 2013. 42.3% of us fall into the 25-34 age bracket in 2016 while only 26% of Omonians did in 2013. (Hi fellow olds! <3)
Not a lot has changed with regards to the gender of our readership & users. 93% of Omonians identify as Female while we had a significant decrease in our Male population.
In the year 2016 Omona is gayer than ever! Only 53.2% identify as straight this year compared to the 73% of 2013. (s/o to my fellow Bi babes out there!)
Omona is Sexy, Free, & Single! Ready to Bingo?

So where do the Omonians live?
Do you know/are you learning Korean?
It's interesting to learn that a lot of us picked up some of the Korean language along the way. Has getting into Kpop ever made you want to visit Korea? Have you answered our dear lysblack's survey about it? Details here.

We don't really need more mods, sometimes there just isn't any news or anything in the queue for hours. Sorry.

"y'all need to chill"
This is the internet and in essence people are allowed to say/do what they want. But also, maybe we can all try to be a little nicer when we post comments, okay? We're all here because we love Korean Pop Culture and it would be nice if we could make this a safe space for discussions. Drama is fun, but it does get tiring.
If you see users causing trouble don't hesitate to report them to one of our friendly neighborhood OPD Mods: opd_devil, opd_caya, opd_gyoza, opd_onewudidnt, opd_sith, opd_songbird
