Credits go to Crazy51 for creating the first version of the Soshictionary for their 3rd anniversary!

the Soshictionary 2nd Edition This dictionary is essential for understanding the terms in the Soshi World. This is a place where the word mushroom is no longer merely a type of fungus, or where the word genie is not the magical spirit who grants wishes of its beholder? All these words have different meanings in the SoShi world. In the spirit of SNSDs 4th anniversary which only couple days away, we tried to compile these words into a SoShi-dictionary! Reminder: The Soshictionary will continue to evolve over time. If you see certain terms missing feel free to contribute by posting the word and a short definition in the comments below. You may find your submission a part of the Soshictionary! This is the more permanent version for the website, and in a way you can call it
