The Kpop Picture Puzzle Challenge!

We thought of the idea months and months ago, but didn’t really know how to build it. Martina spent some time trying to figure out the best way to play this game and today, it finally came together! Finally we can present: the Kpop Idol Reveal Quiz! You can play along as well at home.

We occasionally play games, like we did for the Kpop Superfan Test, and the Kpop English Test, and we have great fun with them. Hopefully you’ll have fun with them as well. We’ve made an Adobe Photoshop PSD file available for you to download if you want to play it and it should open in other programs, such as Pixelmator. I’d suggest picking your own pictures, though, since you already know who we did in this one. You can even make this the movie star challenge, or food challenge, or whatever you want really. Each picture should be 1200×900, and should be put as layers below the tiles (if you don’t know about layers, I’m not sure how to describe them, really). Then, just deselect a layer when you pull the number. It’s that easy! Click here to get the file for you to play with, if you want. Martina included an opening layer on the downloadable game with brief instructions on how to play the game.

Basic instructions for the game are as follows: you take turn picking numbers randomly from 1 -20 and each number represents a tile. As the tile disappears, part of the person’s face is revealed. However, you can only choose to guess who it is FIRST and then pick a tile to disappear, otherwise, it will be too easy if you reveal a good tile and then also get to guess.

Play Along For Punishments and Rewards
You can play with all types of rewards and punishments and if you want to play along with us at home. Option one is to play with a friend and to pick Team Simon or Team Martina to bet on. Each time Simon chooses wrong, you get punished too! When he chooses right, you get a reward, and so on. You can also play the adult version by taking shots every time someone on your team makes an incorrect guess.

Race Against Us
The other option is to play against us which is perfect if you’re watching this video alone. If you can guess who the kpop person is before us, reward yourself with 10 points. If you guess them at the same time as us, 5 points. If you couldn’t guess them at all but you know who they are once their picture is totally revealed, 0 points. However, if you don’t know who they are at all, it’s a -5 for you! Let us know your score in the comment section below. I make a devilish grin because we already know who wins and loses but we won’t reveal it now…buwahahahahaha!

So, how did you do? Did you get everyone right? Could you guess before we did or were you at a similar speed? I’m still shocked we couldn’t get you-know-who (if you already watched the video) but I don’t want to reveal anything for those of you that haven’t watched our video yet.

We’ve got some extra scenes, simply because filming this WAS OVER AN HOUR! To put that into perspective, when we film our Kpop Music Monday list videos, we usually film 25-30 minutes of talking, and 15-35 minutes of skits, then we cut it down to around 10 minutes. This was a lot longer. It took over two hours just to import and transcode the footage! Argh! And, I know some people might say that we should just upload the video raw, without editing it, but that wouldn’t make for too great of a video. We’ve got down time between shots. For example, our camera stops recording after 12 minutes. It’s just a problem with DSLRs, so there’s a lot of black screens until we realize, holy crap, the camera stopped recording again. And then there are lots of shots of Rose (our web developer and KpopTaemin superfan) coming into the shot and setting up the tiles for the next round so that there was no cheating McCheaterson going on. Aaahhhh anyhow, here are the extra scenes and bloopers! Can you guess who the last kpop idol was that we couldn’t guess? Let us know!

  3. OMG! I guessed Dara before you guys, but I really couldn’t believe that Martina didn’t recognize her. I’m a 2ne1 fan, but not to the extent that I have anything of them picture-wise. However, I recognized Dara instantly. Crazy man.

    I’m such an epic fail lol. I guessed IU and then Suzy and then I was done. There are very few idols that I actually know by name or face. I needed a song playing to help me out lol

  8. Simon your uneven mustache was bothering me a bit, haha! But anyway how do you guys not know more Kpop stars? I mean like over time wouldn’t you have picked up who people are from songs and shows? Just curious. It’s always hilarious when you two compete against each other!

  9. I got two of them before you! And 35 points in total! Dara was obvious to me once I saw her eyes, and I got Taeyeon once Martina started talking about Girl’s Generation~ I did however not even know AOA so I got minus five for that…

  12. Is now a good time to say I had Dara when you revealed her hand?

    …yeah, I’m scared, too… lol

  13. Is it bad that I got JoKwon right from the first tile removed?

  14. I can’t remember faces so I’d bomb this game.. Also I don’t remember too many bands or their members. To me its just too much…

    • I only remember my two favorite groups’ members (they only have like four and five members so it isnt hard), other than that only if a member left a particularly strong impression on me in a variety show and have an easy name. lol I knew noone on this video lol

      3 years ago
      • Well I knew of a few of them, and I actually like Taecyeon but couldnt name him until the reveal.

        3 years ago
  15. I got 70 points plus 10 from the bloopers. And my fave group wasn’t in the game, what am I doing with my life ~? Actually i feel powerful right now LOL
    I knew it was Dara from her eyebrow haha It was a lot of fun and I’m definitely going to play with my friends woot woot !!!

    3 years ago
  16. -15 ;_; *sigh of epic failure*
    I actually -recognised- them but I didn’t guess them before they were revealed.(I was sooooo close with Dara though) And I didn’t know 3 pictures at all.

  17. I got 35 points plus 10 from the bloopers one. :D I got Dara almost immediately and Taeyeon before Simon got it, tho I wasn’t 100% sure about that. I thought Doojoon was Xiumin from Exo at first when his eye was revealed, but then the hair gave it away for me. :DD

    This was loads of fun!

    3 years ago
  18. I got them all….. except for Taeyeon.. I thought it was Minkyung from Davichi..

  21. 50 points .. I was so surprised it took you guys so long to get Dara and Taeyeon. It was so easy haha

    3 years ago
  22. I knew it was Dara too. Totally looks like her.

    You should warm up the file fish over a stove top flame until it becomes kind of flexible. It’s much better that way.

  23. I could not figure Siwon and Hyorin out…!!! and DARA WAS OUT IN THE SUN….HOW COULD YOU NOT FIGURE IT OUT….??? well not scolding you guys…it’s okay..!!! well played Me..!!! YOON DUJOON..!!! it was all out at 18 itself

  25. I had no idea with the Kai one, but I got most of the others before y’all did. XDD
    Yoon Doo Joon~ Come on now hahaha.
    Dara I knew right away from the first picture because she wears her hair up like that a lot for her Clio make-up pictorials.
    This was absolutely hysterical funny though. I was dying of laughter.

  26. Watching the Bloopers video at work (well i HAD TO take a break)
    I thought I would die laughing when you did not get my Doojoon :D Come on guys, We all know how much we love Ba2oost!!!

  27. YAY! I got Doojun! What do I win? Lol, it took me a little bit because that is an odd angled photo but yay I guessed correctly! Also, if I have were to pic a Beast bias, it’s him. On the flip side with the blonde hair and Adam’s Apple I thought it was Jaejoong until the eyes were revealed and then I had no clue. Guys this was a lot of fun. Distracted me very well from what I’m actually suppose to be doing. I didn’t read the blog till afterwards so I didn’t calculate points. I did get Dara before ya’ll, from the first eye tile. I was indeed yelling, well mentally yelling, the answer at my monitor.

    • Ooops I mean to also say, I never tire of your colorful descriptions. “You smell like someone pissed on socks.” I’m still laughing!

  29. Since I was watching this video alone, I played the race against Simon and Martina version. I got 45 points. I’d say that wasn’t too bad.
    This was a fun video, btw! :)

    • Also, I knew Dara so much earlier than you guys did, haha. I knew it was Dara after her hand was partially revealed.

      3 years ago
      • Watched the bloopers now too. I got who it was, but I’m surprised you guys didn’t because he was in the drama Let’s Eat!

        3 years ago
  30. wow…it was so strange seeing Simon with no beard and moustache!

    WHOA! i was surprised you didn’t recognise Dara since she’s from 2ne1 ahaha!! i got that one after the first few tiles were gone!!! but i guess it’s cos i’ve seen that pic before!

    YEAH~~~ Taemin!!! guessed it correct too of course!!! *drool* i love those mushroom chocolates! very fitting after the Taemin win ahahah!!

  31. That game is really cool! I knew everyone minus the guy in the bloopers.

  32. Seriously how could you NOT tell that it was Dara? xD
    I guessed it when you picked 17, at first I was like “Suzy or Dara?” but it had to be Dara it had to xD

  33. Racing against you and I got 70 :D, Dara will be disappointed with you…

  34. Watching a drama with Taecyeon right now so those eyebrows have been drilled into my brain. I can’t believe I guessed before Simon and Martina! Woohoo!

    3 years ago
  35. Wow. I got the one of Dara as soon as the first square was revealed. I must have seen this picture a lot some how. This was a lot of fun! So I guessed Dara, AoA (as soon as you said you they did one of the songs/videos you didn’t like), and Taemin faster. Kai at the same time as you and the rest after. But I did know everyone so hooray! Final score of 35?

  36. I was literally screaming “IT’S DARA!!!” to you guys :D so frustrating to watch when you know the awnser

    3 years ago
  37. So frustrating to watch since I knew everyone except AOA and Jokwon before you. haha Indeed I was screaming the names in my head in front of the screen… :’D Poor Doojoon though…
    Anyway, this looks like a fun game! Now I need a friend who can make it and another friend to compete with…
