- If u still have difficult spelling your Korean name, you can ask us with leave your comment in comment section, we will make the Korean name for you
- If you have a really long name try to shorten it with ensure it's very close to your real name, cause it doesn't accept too many hangul. You can omit the middle name
Box 2: Your birthday: year-month-day
*** For box 3-6 please fill in 4-8 character, both letters and numbers, more desirable, use lowercase only, and only "_" can be used. Other symbols cannot be used.***

Box 3: ID means the ID you want (username) in soribada.
- Not the ID CARD name.
- Try use any unique name to avoid duplicate ID name.
- English name is OKAY (no need use hangul).
- Oya you SHOULD click “check ID” button (next to where you enter the id) to check your ID available or not.

Box 5: confirm password
Box 6: nickname
Box 7: your email adress. Please fill in the real email to receive confirm letter from soribadaBox 8: Upload your id card / PASSPORT / DRIVING LICENSE and scanning photo
- They want your ID card just so that they can identify you. It's because Korea have this "real-name system" on Internet, that for whatever registration on internet they will need your real identification and information
- Notice: if u don’t have ID CARD/ PASSPORT / DRIVER LICENSE TO UPLOAD, for some case u can try to upload any photo, it will works too (but it is just for some case, hope. My friend try using his any photo and it was successful but my other friend not, so just try if u are lucky enough). Same goes to use ID student card, it just depend on your lucky. But for use COUNTRY ID CARD / PASSPORT/ DRIVER LICENSE, you are guarantee to success.. ^^
Please make sure that is a clear scanned copy of your ID / the photo is clear enough to show your ID number!
- ID PHOTO: size lower 500k, in jpeg format.
Box 9: Fill in the words and numbers in correct format
Box 10: Ur country
Country code check here:
Box 11: Phone no
- Put on your country code in first box, the rest each box fill in 4 numbers
(actually it depends on your tel.no) (just spread across).
- About the phone number just add half of it if it's too long, example: if your country phone number have 10 number, so you just write 8, and left the rest 2, its okay ^^
(dun worry they wont call you ^^, this is just formality only)
example: if u are from Singapore, ur country code is 65. So in the first box you must write: 0065, the rest of each box just fill in 4 numbers.
- If you can't find your country, just select one nearest your country. But in the phone number fill, the first box is for country code, so it need to match with the country you have selected. (your country not in the list)
5. After you finish registered and you should got the page that said, "소리바다의 회원이 되신 것을 축하드립니다." = Congrats on becoming a member. But it doesn’t mean you can automatically log in because you are not technically registered yet. You have to wait for your confirmation email maximum within 3 days ( I got my confirmation email within 2 hours ^^) because they must need time to look over the information you sent them along with your passport info since you are a foreigner. So its need time, it can be in 1 day or even take few days before you can log in to listen… so just make it the account now… Patient okay, because I am sure many TS international will register suddenly XD. So please wait until you receive your email confirmation.
If it still doesn't work after 3 days, say after 4 days, there must be something wrong.
Maybe you'd want to Re-signup, why? Because your S.L will not be counted in.
6. After finish register and got the page got the page that said, "소리바다의 회원이 되신 것을 축하드립니다." = Congrats on becoming a member.
After so, you have to do this for checking, TO CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION IS VALID OR NOT! It is a must-do… to make sure, your registration is valid (if you still feel insecured) and you will receive email verification from them within 3 days! (general cases)

c. Click log in button (로그인), don’t mark the one above log in button.

The email you should receive:
If you receive that, then your account is VALID already!
If you haven’t received that email verification within 3 days, it means you can log in of course but your SL WILL NOT BE COUNTED because you haven’t received your email verification.
If after 3 days you have not received it yet ur email verification, it means there is SOMETHING WRONG with your registration! Go back to re-sign up!

It means because your upload photos, the register is not successful because maybe
1.) your number ID isn’t show clear enough
2.) you use student ID card / any photo.
This is what I said before for some special case not using ID/PASSPORT/DRIVER LICENSE photo sometimes can success but sometimes can failed. If you get this kind of email it means you have to re-register again / fill up the information again -- but this time you should upload ID CARD / PASSPORT / DRIVER LICENSE ONLY.
But if you don’t receive this email when actually u use non-ID CARD / non-PASSPORT / non-DRIVER LICENSE / ANY Hyunjoong photo, and even receive successful email verification, so it means you are LUCKY.
That’s why I said just give it a try even if you don’t use ID CARD / PASSPORT / DRIVER LICENSE, maybe you are the lucky one too ^^
But if you already have ID CARD / PASSPORT / DRIVER LICENSE, so just use one of that ID ne, to make sure and not waste your time much.
It doesn't take you very long to scan your card if you do own a scanner, agree? ^_^
G. If you see these following words in the confirmation email they have sent you :
소리바다의 회원이 되신 것을 축하드립니다
it means your registration is complete and successful (you are technically have registered)
and you can log in validly & account fully activated now. ^^
H. Nickname has been used -> change to another nickname
I. Incorect authorization code
J. Fail to upload photo -> should size lower 500k, in jpeg format.
K. ID has been used -> change to another ID
