      Hiiii! So sorry, I didn’t mean to worry you πŸ™ I sort of wrote an explanation on the party planning thread, didn’t think about how you didn’t get a notification since I wrote something in reply to sic and so sorry!
      But yes, it’s also partly just the new semester keeping me super busy too.

        You are here!!! I am so happy that you are okay! We missed you a LOT! Are you okay now? How are you dealing with the new sem? Was there something else bothering you? (I will go check that party thread later) Have you found a way to deal with whatever it was?

        I know, so many questions! I just got excited seeing 8 notifications and knowing that it would only happen if u were back! I wake up to 2-3 from Sic- if it’s more than that, has to be you πŸ˜›

        I didn’t check that thread after Sic went crazy replying to many things! πŸ˜› You must have received a lot of notifications from there!

          Oh I definitely got a lot of notifs from that thread lmao. It was a lot of fun to read kkk. Just didn’t have the energy to reply back to it all.

            ^^ Fair enough! You don’t need to reply to everything! Nothing was that important..

            I finished a level.. enrolling myself for the next one.. I am thinking of starting personal coaching classes for students who have Spanish at school level.. I know enough to teach the school kids because their syllabus is pretty basic.. At least I will have something to do while i wait for my next exams/results etc..

    He composed this?? But i thought he was just a singer! I mean I haven’t really checked out much of his work- just few variety stuff and Marriage Not Dating!

      He plays at least drums, guitar and piano (and bass?) and as far as I know all of his solo stuff is self composed, at least I know for certain that his first ones from 2011 are. He’s got a really high IQ, he’s super athletic, musically talented (even if he’s not a technically great singer (yet)), funny, handsome, taller than me and seriously the world is not fair, where are guys like this hiding?!?! 😭?😛

      Have you seen his WGM yet?

        Someone is crushing on him super hard πŸ˜‰

        I knew about the super athletic, funny, tall and handsome part but didn’t know about the others much! πŸ˜€

        Yup I did.. I mean, I started it and saw the end and many episodes in between.. might have skipped a few episodes as I used to watch it on YT and some episodes were always missing.. Oooh and now I am remembering random parts from it and feel like going back and watching it.. I have even seen him as part of the panel on WGM- with very bad hair might I add :P.. And I still remember that lady on that one episode of Maknae Rebellion.. She just looked at him and ignored others! He does have that cocky, sexually attractive thing going on! πŸ˜‰

        1
        7

          Well at least I’m in complete awe at his many talents and plus-sides lol, even though I obviously know he’s got flaws like any other person, that’s just quite a lot for just one person! I never meet people like that lol, so I’m just amazed that such a person exists πŸ˜›

          Ahhh you should totally go watch the whole thing! It’s so funny how she’s the noona (on WGM), but he’s totally got the upperhand in the relationship lol, he’s got some mad player-skills hahaha πŸ˜›
          And now I wanna go rewatch Idol Makbanshi lol. Him, Mir and Seunghyun were just gold and then the Shinee eps and Yoo Se Yoon, argh, wish it was still ongoing or had more eps at least. It could actually be really fun to see new maknaes mingle like that. Even though I wasn’t around for it, I really miss the 2nd gen shenanigans and how they all were on shows together and had all these friend-lines like 91’er and Kyu-line. It was so much fun. Agencies need to train their idols more for variety again, so few of them go on shows nowadays and when they do it’s mostly just when they’re promoting a song and they end up being really boring…

          1
          1

            I could say that about many Korean celebrities! How are they so multi- talented? I have never met someone like that in real life!

            I just remembered their first meeting, then his jealousy over Baro, that photo- shoot, yoga sessions, and that end.. Yup he definitely got some skills! And they made such an attractive pair!

            It would be so fun if they did a Makbanshi season 2! All those ‘savage maknae’ videos should give many candidates! And yes! I would love more cross- group friendships in kpop! I read somewhere that Hoonie knows/ is friends with- not probably not close anymore- Infinite’s Hoya- he even made a video supporting Hoya when he was back in school- but he didn’t want to take his name much just in case fans thought he was trying to ride on Hoya’s popularity!

            I would love more such stories to come across! But maybe the cut- throat fandoms and competition makes it hard to do that now?

            0

          Very true!!

          I dunno, maybe you’re right. The fan wars are pretty insane at times and the gazillion groups debuting every year and everyone competing so hard probably isn’t good for these things. But then, some of the 1st gen rivalry was also insane, yet the guys are friends irl, they just didn’t show it back then and then came the 2nd gen and suddenly everyone were openly intereacting. So who knows, maybe it’ll change again?

          I dunno, maybe I do have a “celebrity crush” level lol, but it tends to blow over pretty quickly and I’m a bit of a realist, so even irl I distinguish between being attracted to someone and having an actual crush on them. I think it’s quite possible to be attracted to someone, yet not have a crush on them in any way. With celebs I just tend to be more fascinated or in awe or feel like “awww this person seems like such a good/funny/talented person, that’s so great” and just be appreciative of the fact that there’s someone like them able to make me happy through great skills or by just lighting up a screen with their warmth or charm. Maybe bc I tend to be hyper-aware that they’re real people, yet people whose real self I’ve never seen or met, no matter how real and honest they may be on screen, so they both feel like real people and unreal at the same time, if that make sense?

          It’s also why I always try to add things like “at least judging by their interviews” etc when talking about celebs, bc in all honesty I know that I have no freaking clue and they could all be pouring lies out on screen like nobody’s business lol and that it’s also unfair and sort of weird to talk about people you don’t know as if you know them just based on their TV appearances. So I tend to feel sort of weird fangirling or talking about celebs outside of trying to analyse or just appreciate their work, but I end up doing it anyways lmao πŸ˜›

          Well that was long… Again LOL πŸ˜›

            But but haven’t you ever fallen head over heels for a kdrama character? Loving him so much that you wish you found someone like him? And then loving the actor because if he was able to portray that character so well, there must be something of that character in him… Then looking at his interviews, BTS, songs, variety and falling deeper? This is Seo In Guk for me… I mean I obviously know that he is an actor and I don’t even dream of being together with him but just loving him still? Like if I go back and listen to some of his songs or some clips, I actually feel sad that I won’t be seeing anything from him for some time and literally miss him sometimes!

            You are right about us not really knowing their “real” selves but a celebrity crush is anyway different from a real life crush (though seriously, I can’t even recall the last time I had a real life crush.. it has been too long. I need to go out more! :P)

          Not really. I do go on binges, but that’s when I find people funny. Like, I looooove Park Hyo Shin’s voice and find him to be an incredible, awe-inspiring person based on what I’ve seen/heard, but I have hardly watched anything with him, bc when he finally do make a TV appearance it’s not really funny. It’s the reason why I love using gifs of and watching vids where Seunghyun or Jinwoon, because they ALWAYS manage to make me laugh or smile with their goofiness and cheerfulness and I need that more in my life πŸ™‚ Doesn’t mean I actually want to find someone like them irl, even if I do at times bemoan the fact that handsome, funny, smart AND creatively talented guys don’t seem to exist in my world haha πŸ˜› Not that I don’t get attached to certain celebs, just not really in that crush like way. But I dunno, maybe I’m just fooling myself bc I feel weird about the whole celeb concept lol. And this – “but a celebrity crush is anyway different from a real life crush” is also very true, so maybe I’m just not really aware what my celebrity crushing would look like kkkkk.

    Oh btw did you hear of the Oppa War on DB? It was pretty hilarious and one of the funniest thing to happen on DB for a while! A new beanie appeared called @mrsparkhaejin and @azzo1 declared war! All in jest but then many beanies became azzo’s soldiers, suppliers, supporters and then there were some beanies who came up with popcorns to pass around to all the others enjoying the drama. SO it was like one big DB party and poor Mrs Park Hae Jin had to retreat! 2 days of all day laughing!

        Ah it did get a lil too much sometimes but I loved other beanies’ comments more… And if pacifism is your thing, you should totally check out the mini oppa war (that was not) between me and Jig then! πŸ˜› I felt so weird staking any claim to SIG that I ended up being all “let’s share the love”- actually even saying that made me uncomfortable but we were on a “oppa war” high and just went with the flow πŸ˜› Plus Ziggie is no oppa of mine- he is just Gukkie.

      2AM still is, but they’re on hiatus I think and except for Jo Kwon I believe all members left JYP though on good terms. It’s really sweet actually, Jinwoon once said on RS(?) that JYP himself told him that he couldn’t be of any service to him if this is the kind of music he wanted to do and that it was okay for him to leave to pursue his music dreams, which awww ❀️ He’s with Mystic entertainment now, Yoon Jung Shin’s agency (the guy who made the song KSY made re-famous lol, Instinctively (I think, gosh my poor memory lol, overload on old interviews trying to remember all this ahahah)).

      1

        JYP is such a weird guy! I don’t think I have liked his songs/acting/dancing but he just has that kinda charm.. I dunno… like he knows what would work most of the times. So I guess an instinct. Which doesn’t work all the time (did SIG fail JYP auditions? and he had quite a lot of critical comments for Yoon while teh other judges loved him? which I guess might have helped him grow but still— eesh! just realized that Ziggy won season1 of Superstar K and Yoonie was in the top4 in season2… so SIG is like a sunbae to him! and of Roy Kim and JJY! Dude should come back and focus on his musical career along with his acting career)- sorry went off on a tangent there and now I don’t remmeber what I wanted to say about JYP… but uh yeah.. that was sweet of him!

        1
        4

          Thing is, whenever JYP comments on singing, I can’t help but go “errmm dude, you promote “half air half sound” AND you have ZERO technique when singing yourself” hahaha.

          Oh yeah and he was also sort of Seunghoon’s mentor on Kpop Star I think?

          1
          1

            Exactly! He gives weird advice! Why is he so well- established?! Like YG makes sense most of the times!

            Was he? I didn’t know.. And I was googling Kpop Star and Lee Hi was the runner up of Season 1 while Hoonie came 4th… Now I am not one for shipping people but why have I not seen fans makes Lee Hi- Seunghoon ships!?! They basically started their careers together!

            1
            0

          I think it’s bc his songs are really catchy. He knows how to make a hit song and a hit group and establish a succesful image for a group (like 2PM as the beast idols), he’s just not that great at vocal technique lol. I think he’s more of a dancer perhaps. And likeability probably also plays a part.

          Lol didn’t know about Lee Hi!

          1
          1

            His dances are pretty stupid too imo πŸ˜› But yeah catchy songs and maybe becoming popular at a time when there was not much competition and having a business sense..

            0

          It’s not my style, but he clearly knows something about dancing, while at the same he doesn’t really seem that natural, so I dunno. But his artists generally tends to be good at it, like Rain (previously JYP), 2pm AND 2am. He talks a lot about singing, but dancing seems to be more his agency’s thing.

          Sometimes it sort of seems to me like the big companies’ focus can be divided into:
          YG – rapping, singing and individuality/artistry
          JYP – dancing
          SM – visuals, singing (like SuJu) and dancing (like EXO)
          FNC – instruments and singing

          1
          2

            Lol I just remembered him teaching dance in Dream High! And now I want to go back and watch that! What is with me and wanting to check out every thing I think of momentarily!

            SM seems to have it all then! I mean that is covering almost everything! But I still prefer YG! Not that I love everyone at YG but they seem to just have that ‘awesome’ thing going for them- I mean Big Bang and 2Ne1 are legends! And I love Winner and Akmu! Oh and Black Pink seem interesting too.. Could also be because I haven’t really checked out other groups much.. How many groups does SM have? Exo, SHINee, SuJu, Red Velvet, Girl’s Gen (?) who else? But there are so many more groups- Apink, Mamamoo etc etc– I will one day look up all these things! When I have time… Which i might have soon.. Winner has ended this CB’s promotions! I guess we can wait till December now…
            Ah but I think they will still be more active.. Mino as a special MC for Radio Star soon.. I really get irritated when one of my favourites comes on RS- I don’t like the show but have to watch it for them! πŸ˜›

          For me it’s like YG at least lets their artists be artists and also just people. There really is a reason why SM has such popular groups, but they just treat them all so horribly. They also have TVXQ – or what’s left of them. That whole thing was just so tasteless and still is -.- And yes, SNSD, also f(x) and NCT and according to Wiki also TRAX (are they still a thing?) and S.E.S which I don’t believe are together anymore? They also have BoA.
          Yeah it’s hard to figure out all the agencies! I’m still only sort of solid on the bigger companies and their artists. Don’t even know who Mamamoo is under despite really liking them.

          LOL the same with RS! Thanks for letting me know, didn’t know about it nor that their cb cycle had ended πŸ™‚

    TVXQ has many fans though! Something happened to them? SM treat them badly? Oh and there is Cube Entertainment too which i know about only because Beast/ Highlight left them and started their own company and I like those boys/ ajhusshis…

    1
    1

      Haha thanks πŸ˜›

      They have tons of fans yes. As far as I recall, it’s something about them taking SM to court for their practically literal slave contracts that bound them for even longer than they do know and with all sorts of ridiculous clauses and stuff. I think they won or something and Jaejoong, Yoochun and Junsu left and became JYJ, while Changmin and Yunho stayed at SM under the original name, but SM was salty and got JYJ banned from music shows etc just by lobbyism. It was pretty bad and I believe SM was forced by law to change their contracts up a bit after that. They’ve also treated Chinese members of groups like SuJu and EXO extremely badly and most of them left due to it.

      Oh yeah, Cube! There’s also Glove Ent (Park Hyo Shin), Jellyfish (previous SIG), Mystic (Jinwoon), Starship Ent (K.Will), Star Empire (ZE:A), Big Hit (BTS), AOMG (Jay Park, Simon D), HGHGRND (or something similar), Drunken Tiger’s agency (don’t remember the name), 7 Seasons (Block B) and of course Woolim and oh gosh, I knew way more than I thought I did and these are just the ones I remember off the top of my head o.O There’s also LOEN which used to just distribute, but now also have artists signed I think. A few of them are affiliates or something of the big 3 though. SuJu also have their own “label” now.

        Wow! SM sounds like those big bad agencies/companies shown in all those kdramas! This just made me appreciate YG even more!

        Oh wasn’t Park Hyo Shin with Jellyfish? Or he was there before.. I think I saw him and Gukkie together in something- or maybe not..
        Wow! This is exactly what I meant to look up when I said “I will one day look up all these things! When I have time!” You just made it easier! πŸ˜› But man you know a LOT! πŸ˜‰

          Yeah, they’ve done some pretty awful things, like forcing SuJu members on stage when they were literally in the hospital hooked to an IV and stuff O.O

          He switched to Glove Ent, a year or two ago. Just looked it up and you were right, he was in Jellyfish before πŸ™‚
          Haha, it’s probably just cause I’ve been hanging around yt watching kpop vids for a year more than you, these things end up sticking with you somehow lol. I don’t really know all that much though, especially compared to what actual kpop fans do o.O

            Eesh sounds horrible! And reminds me of Cindy from Producers.

            Ah yeah such info does stay in the brain. I mean I have not really heard more than 3-4 Park Hyo Shin songs and don’t know much about him but his being a part of Jellyfish stayed with me. So I can see myself being all knowledgeable about kpop and related stuff an year later..

          Yeah, the second I saw they were going to Europe, I was like, that’s it, I’m going no matter what haha ^^ Oh cooool, you already saw them? Where was that? ^^ And yes, their music these days is vastly different from before. Tbh I don’t think I’d ever have gotten into them if they had continued with the title songs they were given by FNC.

          1

            I saw them in 2012 in LA with CN Blue, so it’s definitely been a few years lol. I still love their old stuff. I remember having “I Hope” on loop lol and “Severly” will always be a fav. But, I’m glad to see them grow and doing music they truly love.

          Ooh that sounds awesome πŸ™‚ But yes, definitely a lot has happened since then heh.

          I’m more of a rock kind of person to begin with, maybe why I like the new and Japanese stuff better πŸ™‚ There are a few pre-I Will Korean songs that I like, but they’re far between and mostly like them when they rearrange them for live performances now. And yes, it’s great that they finally seem to have creative control! Go them!

          1
          2

            Yeah, I think it’s just all about taste and when you first got into k-pop. I got into it with “I Hope,” SNSD’s “Genie,” Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry,” Shinee’s “Ring Ding Dong,” etc. But, now it’s hard for me to get into new groups cause I’ve seen that kind of stuff before and now I appreciate groups that do take control over their music and try new kinds of sounds/concepts, but if you’re a new kpop fan I can see how these new but formulaic groups would look so fresh and cool if that’s the only exposure you’ve had.

            1
            0

            Not you, but just a generic you lol I just mean that I don’t mind their beginning stuff either because that’s what got me into k-pop. To me it was fresh and exciting because that was my first exposure like how people think BTS is fresh and exciting because that is their first exposure and people can argue whether that’s true or not based on what other k-pop they have listened to. Now I’m sorry that I got caught up in ranting lol

            1
            0

          I think maybe the difference for me is that I’m not really into K-pop dance groups, except for finding it oddly fascinating as an industry and liking Winner, some random songs and some of the groups in variety. I’ve always been more of a rock/indie kind of person, so Pray and that album really made me excited heh ^^ But yes, coincidentally that album did come out the year I got into Korean music!

          No worries, I got that it was a generic you. LOL I’m the master of ranting, that was nothing compared to what my rants look like haha πŸ˜›

        Yup! Not crazy at all! πŸ˜‰

        Also, I am watching half Moon Friends and it is adorable! I have seen only the first episode and I am in love! These 5 were/ are just so cute with kids and with each other!

          Exactly what I was thinking πŸ˜‰

          Ikr, Half Moon Friends is BEYOND adorable ^^ They all seem to care genuinely about the kids and you can just tell how much the kids like them back, it’s so sweet. Normally you can tell the kids are slightly awkward around the celebs or camera, but here they’re just bouncing about happily.

          Yeah, but at the same time all 5 actually seem much more relaxed and happy than I’ve ever really seen them tbh (well judging by what we see on TV obviously, so who really knows). Seems like it was the right move for all of them πŸ™‚

Right now I’m busy watching ep 2 of Night Goblin, cuz it’s finally subbed, woooo!! πŸ˜€ Hongki is so obviously a veteran in the industry haha I love it. He’s not that much older or even any older than a lot of much newer idols, but it’s just such a different feel when he’s on shows.

          Only watched half an hour of that ep, so far, and Hongki, Hyungdon and Sugeun are doing great so far, but will have to watch more to see what I really think. It’s worth it for Hongki for now at least hehe πŸ˜›

          Oh! I actually did already watch that and wondered about that step haha, good thing they changed it, yes πŸ˜› Seunghoon’s facial expressions though pffftttt… (also he looks soooo good in that getup!)

        It was a clever pun though. And from a Korean. In English.

          Is it in English though? *just posing an intriguing question* Since he’s actually making a pun on the v being pronounced b by most Koreans and since “valet parking” is actually called “valet (parking?)” in Korean and ballet possibly also just ballet, it’s sort of both a Korean and an English pun mayhaps? Dunno, just wondering the nature of language. Again lol.

          Bwhahah, it’s sort of like me and Block B, though part of my reluctance to watch their variety and such is cause I’m afraid I’ll suddenly be in too deep and have even more stuff to catch up on haha. But, yes, like @obsessedmuch said, trussssstttt usssssss (*said like Sir Hiss from Robin Hood*).

          1

            English Loan Word pun then. I guess it’d be like me making a pun out of a well known and used French phrase. I mean, it’s even more clever that he’s playing on the Korean pronunciation of the word AND the two English words.

            Ahahahaaha ah yes so much assurance… I wouldn’t trust Sir Hiss at all! Ever! hahaha (although 70s DISNEY REFERENCES BLESS YOU can and will quote that whole movie haha)

          Ehhh… not sure… It was all as a kid and that time I read like stacks of books every week lol, so I no longer recall which ones I read.
          (I don’t get the hype around Frozen. At all. Or the song. It’s so grating. And it all has NOTHING to do with HC Andersen and the message is so muddled and unclear. I dunno. The movie just bugs me. And it boggles my mind how it got so much more famous than Tangled which is AMAZING (oh. a princess movie I like! Also like Brave actually, but they’re both a bit… unconventional Disney princesses lol))
          Mulan doesn’t have to be historically accurate imo, bc it’s not built over history, but over the Ballad of Mulan, which is folklore. I’ve read one of the versions in translations and I think they did okay by the source material. And it’s just a freaking awesome movie with one of the best female leads they’ve ever had. She’s not really a princess either, so it’s not a princess movie πŸ˜› I think she’s quite possibly the only female Disney lead who’s human and NOT a princess?

            Oh hahaha. Idk if you’d like them now, but he did his research and set them in 12th century Wales, and I really enjoyed the series.

            (Story Time. There was almost 0 promo for Frozen prior to the trailer. There were a few random concept sketches and the snow queen theme, but otherwise we literally knew nothing about it. Then the trailer dropped. And I watched it. And then the movie came out and I watched it twice because I had waited for ayges for there to be any info on this movie. And then… then the world LITERALLY blew up about Frozen. And there were millions of covers of let it go, and parodies, and fan art everywhere, and ship fighting and eventually there was just too much Frozen, and what I did like when it came out I now can’t stand. Like I actually do not think I could ever rewatch Frozen again, I have seen too much.
            So I don’t really get the hype either. And it’s nowhere near the best Disney movie. Although I will say I did like the tiny little nod at the Sami they put in it. And the Danish Hymn at the beginning.
            OHMYGOSH YES ANOTHER TANGLED FAN. Was gonna mention that because I love Tangled and can and will rewatch. (AND BRAVE TOO! I love Brave.)
            Well, mean, no it doesn’t, but haha there’s this artist who draws the disney princesses in historically accurate clothing, and her comment on Mulan is quite interesting, cos she says they covered so many dynasties it was confusing haha.
            Well, in that case then, that’s pretty cool. I mean, I don’t watch it for the history anyway. I watch it cos MULAN! and Eddie Murphy as Mushu, and the music.
            She’s not a princess, but she’s included in the “Official Disney Princess Lineup” cos Disney, and yes that’s actually a thing. *sigh*
            Well if you want to get picky, is a Chieftain’s daughter a princess?Haha but then you’d have to go through all the other Disney movies, and there’s tonnes of other female leads there. Jane. Esmeralda. Megara. For example…
            Oh shit my Disney nerd of 3 years ago is showing…

          About to go to bed, so short reply:

          Yay you like Tangled!!! Tbh it’s one of my favorite movies, I’ve seen it way too many times. Of newer Disney movies, also Brother Bear which I recently learned got bad reviews, though I can’t see why, because the moose brothers are just worth everything no matter what else happens in the movie and I just love it.

          β€œOfficial Disney Princess Lineup” <- yep, knows it's a thing. Finds it weird. And why is Belle in there too btw, HOW is she a princess? Oh wait was he a prince? Bc then she becomes one of course. But oh yeah Esmerelda! Had forgotten about her and Jane. Megara?

          And yes, I say a chieftain's daughter counts, because it's as close to princess as you get in North American Native American culture (lol that was a lot of words), I think. Unlike mulan who's just from a high class, but not part of the court or such.

            Yess! Same, probably. It’s just lovely.
            Mmmm Brother Bear is pretty good actually, and yes, the Canadian accent Moose are the best hahaha.

            Cos Adam was a prince, yes haha.
            Megara- Meg, from Hercules.

            That’s true haha. Have you seen Moana? It’s not my favourite but I just like that Pacific Island culture was well represented. And they make a joke on the whole chieftain’s daughter/princess thing haha.
            I’d love Disney to make an animated historic Korean movie, but uhm, they’d probably ruin it and I have Kdramas for that. So I also don’t want them to haha.

          Brother Bear is actually one of the few movies I love more in Danish dub, the mooses have a Jutlandian accent and it’s so unbelievably hysterically funny that it literally has me rofl πŸ˜› But in general Danish dubbing of Disney movies is actually really good, we’re even known for it, especially since it’s usually people who sing really well who do the songs.

          Ahh yes, I thought she was probably from Hercules, but I’ve only seen it once and don’t really remember it, so wasnt sure.

          Not yet. I really want to, but errr time lol.

            Ah ok. Yeah. Hercules. Good music. Everything else I’m just like eh.

          Yeah the only thing I remember about Hercules is a “twas fine” feeling and a few images lol. That era really wasn’t their strongest…

          I know it is haha πŸ˜› That’s why it was super random and unrelated lol. Sometimes I love Dreamworks more than Disney tbh. Yes, I just said that. And Spirit was one of my faves as a kid, I mean, it had horses and Native Americans and a great OST and rebels, what’s not to like?

          Btw, unrelated, again hah, but my friend can go to Paris for the concert! Woo! At least date-wise, now we’re trying to work out the financial stuff, because she won’t let me pay for her lol. So now I’m freaking out over whether it’ll be doable and what flight we’ll get and how she’s suggested we might be able to stay at her friend’s place, but I don’t even know the guy, but at the same time it sounds like it would be fun and lots cheaper which is nice even if I do have the money to pay for a place to stay, but aarrgghhh, I’m so confused now o.O
          Sorry lol. I just needed to vent that confusion for a bit. You don’t have to answer…

            Dreamworks has some solid older 90s and 2000s movies man. Prince of Egypt. Road to El Dorado. Spirit. Sinbad.
            Where’d 90s Dreamworks go man?

            WOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO! Does she listen to FTI? Or are you just like ‘wannagotoaKoreanRockConcertwithmeinPARIS?’ hahaha
            Awwww hahaha.
            Hey hey, don’t worry, just take deep breaths and work through all your options one by one. It’ll all come together. And just think about what kind of experience you want to make it. Does it matter staying at the friend of friend’s? Or would it be cooler to have a hotel room. *shrugs* (Like two days before my GD concert I didn’t have a ride to the airport. At 6 in the morning. And then I did. :0)

            oh

          Yesss exactly! Also Joseph King of Dreams or what it was called. SUCH GOOD MOVIES

          Errm she’s never really listened to Korean music hahaha. She’s got an idea that it’s “weird” actually, but she did once say “oh that’s way better” when I shortly played Pray for like a minute (as compared to Park Hyo Shin’s Wildlower (which WHAT) and that weird sushi mv from Orange Caramel that I showed her for laughs, but then quickly regretted showing cuz now that’s her idea of Korean music lol). I kind of just said I have two tickets to a concert in Paris with my favorite band and did she wanna go hahaha πŸ˜› She actually doesn’t know yet who the band is or that it’s a Korean one lol, she just loves France and Paris and since I plan on it being a long weekend trip, we’ll be doing other stuff too, so I’ll just wait for her to ask who it’s with or something πŸ˜›

          I actually already have a hotel room booked (fully refundable so that’s not a concern), it’s just that I know it’s too expensive for her, but she won’t let me pay anything as a principle. It just suddenly was all like “how much do I transfer to you” and the staying place isn’t even planned and I didn’t have time to think it through before she got all “how much should I transfer!” which made me freak out even more lol o.O I’m not good with fast decisions, not when it involves where I’ll be sleeping and stuff… And I’ve been doing housework all day, so I’m super tired to top it off and just… not up for figuring it all out TONIGHT.

          Thing is I actually do want to have a more “parisian” experience than just staying at a hotel, I’m just worried about how I’ll handle staying at someone else’s apartment and whether or not it’ll be a comfortable/clean/etc place and whether or not her friend is nice aaannnd you get the picture. And maybe we can’t even stay there who knows. But then we’ll have to find an airbnb since that’s more affordable and I dunno, I want it all fixed and set now, but I also know I’m too tired and that it’s not dependant on me anymore, so it can’t be done all at once.
          And thank you <3 I needed that.

            Yes that too!! Ahhh man, childhood.

            Aahahahaha. Ease her into some of their rock ballads or something. πŸ˜›
            FTI is good at grabbing intl fans-who-were-not-fans-before.
            Awww man, I’m so jealous, I shouldn’t be but just now I miss Paris so much and a trip like that sounds like so much fun.

            Awww no I know exactly how you feel, not good with fast decisions either! You could always just be like ‘x much’ for the ticket only haha. Force your kindness onto hahaha.
            If it’s not working tonight it’s not working, just sleep and think about it tomorrow in the daylight! Our rationality goes out the window when we’re tired.

            Yeah, I do. Maybe ask her some constructive questions? Or just be blunt about it? You don’t want to stay in a shitey apartment building really. Plus Paris hotels can be really nice… hahaha. And very Parisian.
            No it can’t. How do you eat the Elephant, as my dad says? One bite at a time.

          I actually think she’d like the rock stuff more kind of, but tbh I’m just hoping them live will blow her away like all those kpop fans at KCon who said they never listen to rock, but loved it anyways ha πŸ˜›

          Lol yeah except then I’d walk around feeling like I was lying, which I kind of would be even if it’s a nice lie. And I already told her how much for each way per person and she thought it could be much cheaper, but said it doesn’t matter. (so actually I have already told her how much to transfer? Now I’m just more confused at her question lol)

          Maybe I should do that hehe. I was considering telling her that it’s all sort of making me worried, but I’m kinda worried she’ll think it’ll be too exhausting to travel with me, especially since she just travels w/o thinking a whole lot of it…

          Pffftttt yeah, bc obviously elephants are eaten? πŸ˜›

          Thanks for calming me down a bit <3 I think I'll try and get some sleep now and hopefully it'll all seem much simpler tomorrow.

            Yes! I hope so! Their Kcon 16 performance and everyone’s reaction to it is still one of my favourite things.

            Hahaha well yes, there’s that… What’s that bible verse? Don’t let your right hand know what your left is doing? Something like that… That’s what I think of hahaha.

            Ahhh she runs on a different wavelength huh. I know the kind. They’re all like ‘stop worrying. it’ll be fine, we’ll just do this!’ and you’re like BUT DETAILS. haha
            Hmmm, just try explaining it to her anyway. Simple like, these are the options, xyz, this is how it’s making me feel, I know you don’t worry but I do, I’d just like some more information on your friend’s place please etc etc

            I don’t even know where the phrase comes from, but it works in my head hahaha.

          Actually she’s a worrier too, just not when it comes to travelling lol. She’s much more spontaneous than me and stuff. I woke up this morning much more relaxed about it, bc a) not as tired lol and b) it always always always helps when I get a little time to digest.

@Sicarius couldn’t find the dance practice with the tumbling move I was thinking of, but just to show that Winner actually can dance more like other current idols than what they do these days:

3
16

    I still wonder at the fact that they were criticized after this performance! This was good! (Though, yeah iKON’s dance was good too)

    3
    1

      Maybe some of it was just all for show? I’ve wondered, after a rewatch, if it was YG’s purpose to make them underdogs, bc most people love rooting for the underdog. And Winner is much more YG than iKon, so I don’t get why some people say YG was trying to only debut iKon all along…

      2
      1

        Ah yes we have talked about this before! 😊
        YG is definitely smart and this is one of those questions for which we will never get any answer.. and I guess it doesn’t even matter as both groups have debuted now and seem to be doing okay (did u see the news about iKON fans collectively deciding on not buying iKON products cuz YG isn’t treating the group well?)

        2
        2

          Oh yeah, we did haha .

          (yes I did. Seemed a bit ridiculous imo. Unlike agencies like SM, YG seems to be treating his artists as actual people. Not giving a group a lot of comebacks isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it means they’ll be healthier… And either way, boycutting seems like an ironic and not very wellthought out way to go about it)

          2
          2

            We keep coming a full circle! 😜
            (The problem is apparently making them overwork in Japan and not giving a comeback.. plus belittling ikonics’ worries by saying you shall get a comeback in Sept/oct during which time they already have stuff scheduled in Japan… but you are definitely right about YG treating it’s artists better than SM… and Winner was on a sabbatical for a long time too.. they seemed to worked upon themselves during that lull.. also yes, doesn’t sound like a very well thought out move)

            Sorry to butt in..just read about this awhile ago.

            While in Jap iKON topped Oricon and merch are sold out.and K-iKONICs are boycotting their merch in SoKor wouldnt that be counterproductive? At this rate,iKON might keep promoting in Japan

            2
            0

          It really does seem counterproductive!

          “and Winner was on a sabbatical for a long time too.. they seemed to worked upon themselves during that lull.. ” They seem to have come back as stronger and happier people. Not promoting a new song all the time isn’t necessarily bad. Just look at BB, they do fine without that. In a way it might even make them in more demand (eventually though, not when they’re still a new group), it’ll make them seem more exclusive. That said, I’m happy to see Winner working a lot this year, they seem happy to do it and it means more Winner for us haha ^^

          0

    Wahhhh I loveee!! Wait why were they criticized?!?!
    I mean, I want to say that it’d be cool if they danced like this now but there are more than enough groups that do intense dances and they wouldn’t really be Winner I feel if they did… haha

    3
    1

      They’re good right? And Seunghoon did the choreo! He made some really amazing ones during WIN!
      Very true! I like that they don’t do such intense dances anymore, bc it’s better for their health and also they get to focus properly on singing and interacting with the audience during lives, which is awesome. They’re like Big Bang when it comes to dances lol, they have choreos, but they tend not to really do them hahaha. But sometimes I do wish that they’d show how well they can actually dance. I was a little sad when LSG and Ho Dong thought Zico was lying on KB when he said that Mino can dance well πŸ™

      3
      1

        He DID?? Wowowowow. I have mad respect for choreographers. Does he do any of their choreo now?
        Yeah, I think it’s more fun anyway when they just goof around on stage. It’s really funny to watch Jaehyo in Block B perfomances because he’ll often just run out of steam by the third song and just do his own thing interacting with fans haha.

        Ahhh yeah :/ I mean, I wouldn’t have known if you hadn’t shown me so I understand!
        Aissshhh like Zico would lie about something like that tsk tsk

        2
        3

          He made all of their WIN ones I think and he still participates/does it all sometimes, not always sure which ones he’s been part of though. I’m not good at finding that sort of info lol. But as far as I know he did the choreo for Fool (the stage one, not really much of one for the mv hehe). You should definitely try to watch WIN, they had some pretty great dances, both from Winner and from iKon (even if I can’t remember iKon’s dances much, they were still good. I think?)
          Looool I need to watch Jaehyo do that now πŸ˜›

          Hahahahahaha Sicarius, ready to jump to Zico’s defense anywhere, any day – Lee Su Geun better get his shield ready I guess πŸ˜›

          1

            Ahhh that’s really cool. Yeah I’ve seen some iKons dances, like recent ones.
            I want to watch WIN, but I’m also like, while I’m not into either group properly yet, I sort of dread the idea of two such adorkable groups of boys being pitted against each other. I’m sure they have no resentment but I’m like ewww competition whyyy haha.

            Hahaha I’m not sure if there are any good vids of it, but I know he did it during their European Tour at the start of this year.

            Me and every BBC ever. He’s been through so much shit, we can’t help it. I’m not saying he hasn’t made mistakes… just… you know.
            Did Mino show them that he could, in fact, dance well??

            2
            0

          Aww I get that. But the two groups are so supportive of each other and such good friends. And the hyungs (Winner) constantly worry about their dongsaengs which is adorable. Mostly it’s just the fans who made it into this huge fanwar thing, but otherwise it’s just normal work-competition in my eyes tbh. It’s also just a nice story about going from total lack of confidence to enjoying life πŸ™‚ And both groups debuted, so tis all good now lol ^^

          Been through much? Like the stuff with the company and the fact that he got hate for turning idol?
          Not yet it seems, but I’m hoping he’ll show them when him and Taeyang are on KB next ep! It’s gonna be so much fun to watch him with the comedy-duo on another show. Minhodong is the cutest, most unexpected thing I’ve seen in a long time in a variety show lol. I just wish the other guys would be there too, especially since Seungyoon was on Flower Crew with Janghoon! And Jinwoo + Heechul would make a fun Narcissism Duo kkkkk.

          1
          1

            Ahhhh that’s good then. That makes me want to watch it more haha. Also seeing Bobby in the MOBB bts without Mino and getting all shy without his hyung is so cute. Hee.

            Pfffft do you really want me to list it all? The company yeah, turning “idol”, a bunch of backlash the group got in their first two years for stupid reasons, controversies, Seolhyun… and more. It’s still happening too. Every time he does something someone tries to make it into something bad *sighs*

            Hahaha that’s good! I barely no any of those references so they’re just gonna have to go on the list… once again.

          There’s a scene where all the guys eat together and their friendships are just the cutest ^^

          Ugh that’s typical. So many people who don’t like people with talent or good looks or whatever and just hate on them just cause -.-

          Minhodong = Mino and Ho Dong are like an unexpected father-son duo on NJTTW (where LSG is also a member) and I don’t usually like KHD, but duuuudeeee. It’s freakin adorable. Especially in the new season there was this one scene that practically had me laughing the rest of the day lol.
          Flower Crew – don’t watch it. It’s bad. Like, it had potential and I liked the cast, but the form and script were such a mess. There’s a reason it got cancelled.
          Other than that, yas, you should add to the list! πŸ˜›

            Yeahp. It’s kind of a saying among fans actually, that Zico gets hate for even breathing. It’s frustrating. Things just get blown 100 times out of the water with reactions that are far far to brutal than necessary. It’s stupid.

            Ahhh okay! Yeah NJTTW is already on the list so πŸ˜€

        I so wish I could come too! One day, one day we will all go to a FTI concert together!

        Fangirl away! Sometimes fangirling is good for your health! And what if you might actually run into them? That would be so awesome!

        Hee… I am sure you will be scream-singing along with them!

          Ikr, I can’t believe I’m actually going! And in Paris! I’ve never done anything like this before and it took me like 5 mins to decide I was going haha. Normally it’d take me dayssssss. But it’s F T I S L A N D :O I thought I’d never get the chance to see them live!

          Yes! We’ll totally do that! Maybe one day we could all meet up in SK and have a trip there and go to concerts πŸ˜€ Or Japan, cause both FTI and Winner have a lot of shows there πŸ˜‰

          Haha let’s hope you’re right, cuz the amount of fangirling I’m doing right now is no joke!
          I have no idea what I’d do if I ran into them… I mean, I’ve met celebs before, this is teeny tiny Denmark after all, but never someone I’d been fangirling over like FTI haha. I’m secretly hoping that Hongki will post one of his “come have a drink at this bar if you can find it” instas hahahahahaha πŸ˜› (well not so secretly anymore I guess LOL)

          Or quiet-singing out of fear people will hear me and it’ll sound awful and I’ll be publicly shamed haha O.o I should scream-sing along though! *makes mental note to remember not to be too shy and just forget other people*

            I know!!! I remember talking to you about FTI being the group to hear live because they seem so much more amazing live and it is coming true and I am so frigging happy for you!

            Totally!! SK.. because it is the reason why we are on DB and have “met”! Japan yes- why do they love japan so much- and yes WINNER! πŸ˜€

            Hehe… I am right. I know so! And you are not crazy fangirling just happy fangirling which is perfect!

            Lol.. I actually thought of their random fan-bar meets when you mentioned meeting them! It would be just so amazing! But how will you talk to them? *Googles how to learn to speak fluent Korean in one month* *Am I going too far ahead?* Oh but they know English!

            No no.. don’t care about other people! It will be your day!! Who are you going with? Did the friend agree?

          Aww haha thank you πŸ˜€

          Whew, glad it at least doesn’t seem like crazy fangirling haha!

          I have no idea what you’re talking about or why you’re worrying. I know how to say “shoe” and “bread”. That will obviously be enough to carry on a proper conversation! πŸ˜›

          Mmmh well, she’s agreed, except she doesn’t know until Sep when a study trip she’s going on will be and it may be at the same time. But I’m just gonna go ahead and book everything and then if she can’t go, I have another friend I could ask and if she can’t then my mom’s coming along for a mother-daughter trip ^^

            Hahaha… well I wish you good luck with that shoe-bread conversation! πŸ˜› You never know, it might just be one of the most memorable conversations of your life! Look at me already sure that you are meeting them! πŸ˜‰

            Yay for backups! And awesome mothers! πŸ˜€

          I’M ALMOST ALSO MORE EXCITED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE IT’S FTI AND I’M SO JEALOUS BECAUSE THEY’RE LIKE #1 I WANT TO SEE LIVE ALONG WITH BLOCK B AHHH

          YESSSS *runs round in circles at the possibilities* One day we will.

          Girl, don’t worry about other people, they’ll all be singing horribly anyway. Plus, you can actually sing hahaha.
          AND YES DO FANGIRL IT’S SO RARE TO SEE YOU FANGIRL SO MUCH I MUST TREASURE THIS MOMENT.

            Hahaha πŸ˜€ I love how excited you both are when you’re not even going kkkk ^^

            Haha true, so I’ll just be one of many singing poorly πŸ˜› Mmmmh yeah, dunno about that. I wish I could sing much better than I do. The last singing teacher was awful though. His idea of singing was literally using full volume NONSTOP no matter what the song was doing. From the first to the last note. Full power. Like. No. That’s not singing. That’s called screaming.

            Hahahahahaha well you’ll definitely see me fangirling frequently right up until the concert and after too!! If I get to take some pics or vids on my phone I’ll see if I can share here πŸ˜€

            *joins in the happy dancing from her bed* *yes I’m still in bed at noon okay* *has not had a single day to relax in weeks and has hardly even sat done for two weeks so I get to stay in bed today* πŸ˜›

          Well. IT’s YOU. + FTI. How could we not be hehe.

          Ahhh whatever you said you sing, I’ve never heard you but I belif you.
          LAWL WHAT. Don’t think said teacher knows how to sing though!!! ahaha

          Will document all @kaybee fangirling for future proof and reference. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

          *you most certainly do and are allowed to* *enjoy yourself hehe*😛
          Ahhh what? Silly printer… you have till October to get them printed though so you’ll be fine haha.

          Yes! And it was awesome… cos we were both really excited to find other FTI followers. And it got long REALLY QUICKLY. Goodness it’s been about 8 months now… O.o

            Ikr, that’s just awful. And he gave me a song from Jesus Christ Superstar. And I don’t like that show and it was one that was completely awful and he just didn’t care, bc all students got the same song and I’d apparently learn to love it. Not. Also, I sing more loudly once I’ve gotten the rhythm and notes right, bc then I feel more relaxed and comfortable. But he kept making me sing the same line over and over until it was loud enough, when I honestly need a few runthroughs to get into the groove of a song. And he chalked everything down to me being insecure, which no. I was insecure bc he was a poor teacher. *smh*

            Ahhh yes that’s true. Maybe I’ll just print them out tomorrow, I’m so exhausted. I was farsighted enough to buy a frozen pizza yesterday kkk and ice cream weeeee, so I can just relax and be gross all day and not care πŸ˜›

            You were the first FTI follower I found, we’re such a rare breed! I thought it’d been longer actually lol, I feel like I’ve known you and @obsessedmuch forever, cuz we’ve talked about so much lol.

          Never seen it to be honest. (Shock horror I know haha) But he sounds useless and detrimental to your singing confidence :/

          Ahahaha yes I was just about to tell you to not do anything and breathe! And you’d already planned to haha. Pizza and ice cream is a great combination. πŸ˜€ What kind of ice cream?

          Wow! Yes!
          I went back through and checked all my comments recently and bookmarked some of our first OT, and it was February. It feels like longer indeed! I mean, 15-20k comments between us and a lot of those will just be us three. Plus when we talk it’s either BIG paragraphs or short snippets hehe. I am glad to talk so much with you two though πŸ˜€

            I know some of the plot and it’s just such a major “ugh” for me that I’ve never watched it. But I did watch clips of the song he chose. And it was just a really bad choice for me, not just musically, but also content-wise.
            I realized after my last time there that I’d been so tense while there that my muscles were aching and my throat hurt :/ I never went back lol.

            Errmmmm…. So…. That didn’t happen… Well the pizza part did, cuz girl gotta eat, but the resting part not so much. I finished unpacking the boxes… So yay lol! I just can’t seem to relax properly when I know how much there is to be done.
            Can’t remember tbh. Cookie dough I think? Haven’t tried that before, but it was on sale and looked good.

            Hahaha I just read it, our first convo and it’s all about Block B, FTI and weirdly deep shit about Life and Stuff. It’s so us it’s almost embarrassing lmao, I feel like we might be getting predictable. Are we getting predictable??

            Oooh I loved going through those comments! And it all started with someone else’s kpop comment! πŸ˜› Love that you guys are still talking about the stuff that you began with- FTI, Block B, and BTS! And I checked @kaybee‘s other comments on that OT and she is talking about Winner and variety shows! πŸ˜› 6 months for you guys and 4 months for us 3 does seem like an awfully short time for the kinda conversations we have had!

            Also, I went back to my comments to find my first conversation with @kaybee and after going through like 13 pages (full of comments about SIG, his acting, his hotness, some crazy conversations with other SIG fangirls and IRY) I found it!-

            http://www.dramabeans.com/2016/09/exos-d-o-to-headline-new-web-drama-from-director-of-twenty/#comment-2455135

            The conversation really started off quite similar to our SHINee thread conversation! And I hadn’t even checked out all the songs as I had not bookmarked them! Now I have- both bookmarked and gone through those recommendations! πŸ˜€

            Here is looking forward to more of our random awesome conversation!

          Ughhh that’s horrible >.< Have you taken lessons with someone else since?

          Oh… so THAT'S what you were talking about on your wall with @obsessedmuch hahaha. Well, if it makes you feel better then it's ok I guess.
          You can't remember what ice cream flavour you got??? How and why… hahah Cookie Dough is pretty good. Depending on the brand. Sale ice cream is a win win though I hope it is tasty!

          Hahahahaha I mean… maybe… that sounds like every other conversation we have. Although we've been talking for 8 months don't seem to run out of things to talk about so…

            Nah, it hasn’t been that long and been really busy. Plus, don’t know if I’ll have time for it this semester and it’s hard/expensive to get a good teacher who shows you proper technique and actually teaches you stuff like, oh I don’t know, how not to ruin your voice by improper use lol.

            I’m tired and busy, okay!?! πŸ˜› I’ll save the ice cream for tomorrow, think I’ll be off to bed in jiff.

          @obsessedmuch
          Oh that’s just the first thread. We then talked only via OT’s for a few weeks, till we started having 6 part comments each, and switched to email. (Which kekeke @kaybee you’ve never actually replied to my last email. But it was 9k words and it’s a lot easier to talk on the new site)
          It does! But hey, fast friends can be made in shorter time haha. Also, when did you an I start talking? It was on the new site right? When it first began, maybe even day one… Did you initiate? I feel like you initiated…

          Ahahaha oh wow! Trust Kaybee and music lists to start a convo hehehe.

          To infinity and beyond!

            Lol OTs were never my thing! I was not much into chatting with beanies earlier unless you count the IRY ep 16 thread which is all me for like the last 3-4 pages! But I know you guys enough to say that I am not surprised you guys talked so much :P.. the new site has made things so much easier! Notifications are heaven-sent πŸ˜‰ If only we start getting notifications for comments now!

            Yup definitely! It sometimes takes a comment to become friends for life!

            Yup. 9th April. The SHINee/kpop thread. Yours was the first reply! I don’t think we ever talked before on the old site.. or we might have passed by randomly commenting on something but no discussion that I recall… Maybe kpop was the magic word all along! πŸ˜›

          Neither tbh. Untill Kaybee or I needed help with something or had something to share. But It was always awkward cos it usually posted when I was asleep, so I never got to it earlier enough.
          Kekeke we’re the kind of people who if you get us onto something we’re passionate about we just go and go and go…
          So so much so! And yes! Looking forward to that also.

          Case in point, the wedding I was a bridesmaid for in the States? I met the bride online 3 years ago haha.

          Oh it WAS that thread?!? Hahah yeah I know I literally sat there all day refreshing the page waiting for the new site, and then for the next few days did nothing but dramabean. So I was probably like something I can talk about! Wee! haha
          I don’t think we did either. But I also don’t really remember haha.
          Well yeah, not surprising hehe.β™₯

            Hahhaa… yes! All of us know how to keep a conversation going! πŸ˜€

            Wow! Really? That is awesome! Now I know how to get you to India before you turn 80! I just have to get married and invite you! πŸ˜› Though that might not happen either! I am not sold on the institution of marriage yet!

            Yup! I didn’t do anything other than dramabean (is that a verb now? :P) for some days after the new site came up either!

            0

          Ahaha yeahp! Really Really! Got some interesting looks from older generations, when they asked how I knew the bride and if I’d met her before going over… hahaha
          Hahahaha! Well no you don’t have to get married… although I think an Indian wedding would be a crazy an amazing experience to go to.

          (It is a verb now yes. I just coined it. To Dramabean; stay on the site Dramabeans for copious hours, doing nothing but talk to other beanies, post on your beanie wall, and generally stalk and refresh for new posts, interactions and pictures of oppas πŸ˜‰

          I bet!!! Plus all those saris must be gorgeous.

          (Oh yes I should do that. Will make a proper thing for it this evening kekeke)

          1
          2

            Hehehe.. yes! I think the first link you gave in an earlier thread was Seo In Guk’s Seasons of Heart Dingo version! Which was just β™₯ and still a personal favourite!

            Park Hyo Shin is one of those guys whose voice can never fail to work magic! I never reach for his song’s lyrics cuz his voice is enough to make me fall in love.

            The Kyuhyun duet- you had already shared later too.. And I loved it and realized why Kyuhyun is considered the best vocalist! Still would have like to see him in the MV!

            MC The Max- Hadn’t checked out this one before but it is nice. I don’t think I will be going back to it much though.. Just nice but not memorable for some reason.

            K. Will “Please Don’t” The song was so good but the MV is so interesting that all I remember later is the story! And Gukkie!

            Jung Yup- I am a LJS fan and it was cute but nothing that will stay with me.. good thing to go to if I am ever on a LJS binge.

            Drunken Tiger’s “The Cure” has already become one of my favourite and counting this- you recommended it to me 3 times already! πŸ˜›

            Loved Yim Jae Bum “love” and Hong-ki’s “In the Rain” (obviously)..
            Didn’t think much of Lee Mi Ki “Becoming Dust” somehow..

            Ooooh yes that would be lovely. Can we do that. Let’s do that. Actually I got into a conversation with an older Korean gentleman at my church this morning (because there are quite a few Koreans at my church) and he was like ‘don’t go to Seoul, Seoul is big city, go to Jeju and Gwangju’ hahaha but I quite liked Seoul

            Well… you hadn’t when i wrote that… hahaha (and yes I got it this morning, and quickly replying here. My birthday is the 31st of August not the 30th… just so you know)
            Knowing us, it’s totally possible haha. Although grief… what a lot to reply to.

          Yassss on Park Hyo Shin, so much! His voice is so emotionally (and technically) powerful, he just never fails to amaze me. Did you watch his Yoo Hee Yeol perf of it on the PHS special? Tears were literally streaming down his face by the end, like, there was enough to fill a bathtub o.O

          Mmmh yes, Kyuhyun should’ve been in the mv! I hope he does more songs like that once he’s out of the army. And awwww, now I was reminded there’ll be no more gorgeous ballad songs or funny variety from for two years πŸ™ So many talented people going to the military this year…

          Aw, the MC the Max song was my first korean song outside of hearing them on dramas. I just love the mv and his voice is pretty incredible. But besides that song I actually don’t find their music that memorable and I don’t listen to it really anymore.

          The K.Will one is just one of the best mv’s I’ve ever seen. I love watching reaction vids to it, bc everyone always have this “whaaaattttt OMG” reaction by the end hahaha. And yes Ziggie!! <3

          I really like the Jung Yup song, but yeah, I agree, even though I have it in my brain and it starts playing if I try to remember lol, it's not all that memorable or amazing. But cute and fluffy which is nice once in a while if you need a pick-me-up ^^ Or, yes, for an LJS fix lol.

          Haha sorry for that about The Cure, it's just so amazing! And yay! at it becoming a favorite <3

          Im Jae Bum and Hong Ki's relationship is just so adorable. Like father and son, but even tighter and just so freaking cute. The way he looks at HK all proud always makes my heart melt lol πŸ˜€ And you can so tell that he's been an inspiration to HK, it's all over his singing style.

          "Didn’t think much of Lee Mi Ki β€œBecoming Dust” somehow.."
          But… but….. but….. *is at a loss for words* No really… It's fine… I'll be *silencing sob* be fine… Don't worry about me…

          1

            I hadn’t but I checked it out just now! And now it is playing again as I type this! His voice makes me cry!

            I actually didn’t have a lot of love for Kyuhyun as such but he slowly won me over by just being so un-idol-like on NJTTW! And yup his voice!

            I dunno how many reaction videos I have seen of ‘Please don’t’! They never fail to entertain me! Cuz they are literally me when I first watched it! πŸ˜€

            The Cure is β™₯ and deserves to be shared again and again!

            Oh I didn’t know about their relationship! In fact I have just heard that one Im Jae Bum song!

            Ooh you love Becoming Dust so much?? Maybe I checked it out at a wrong time and just wasn’t feeling it? I will check that and MC Max some time later to see if I like it then! πŸ™‚

          On PHS, Please Don’t and The Cure – Yep!! <3

          Kyuhyun is definitely someone who grew on me too, wasn't really that enthralled by his voice or laughing at his variety until after a while, but now I'll really miss both!

          You didn't know about Im Jae Bum and Hongki? Eep! *must find link* They're so adorable! There's been joking about him being his adoptive father and stuff lol.
          LOOK HOW CUTE THEY ARE!!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tX5c-74mVeI

          I love Becoming Dust, yes! <3 I head JJY and Roy Kim's cover first, maybe that'll hook you? Also, the lyrics are really good!
          MC the Max's song isn't one I listen to often anymore, but it's such a gorgeous vocal effort, like it's so not easy to sing like this and he's got so much emotion, still love it πŸ™‚
          But if they don't do it for you, that's absolutely fine, music is a lot about things we can't explain and sometimes you just don't love a song, nothing wrong about that ^^

          *I may or may not have added anything FTI to that list and no longer have any control over the increasing amount of vids in it* *can’t even remember half the stuff* *but there’s some good stuff in there* *a few meh ones perhaps but mostly good ones* *I think* *O.O*

          Oh I love that ep! CNB sort of just…. pale in comparison, poor babies haha. Their sunbaes are just letting themselves go completely and CNB stand there trying to look cool LOL.

            They were so shy and FTI were just like ‘stand back guys, we got this, we’ve been around so long… we got this’ haha it was great. AND JH AND JJ’s SMUG AS LOOK WHEN THEY BOTH CAUGHT THE WORM tsk

          Haha yes! Speaking of SH – Shinee and now CNB. Imagine if Won Bin hadn’t left and SH had debuted with CNB….. He’d be the uncontrollable maknae always getting his goody two shoes hyungs in trouble lol. It’d be such a strange fit!

          JH is seriously a master at looking smug hahaha I love it πŸ˜›

        Yes! A spoof CF, I think it’d be a hit haha

    He is hilarious! And that mischievous smile! So cute!

    I am surprised @sicarius has not seen so much FTI variety! Also secretly glad! I am behind on their music, she is behind on their variety! πŸ˜€

          Too many groups. TOO MANY OLDER groups who are good on variety!
          Block B and SHINee are 6 years old. Big Bang 11. FTIsland 10.
          Dude, I’m behind on BTS and SVT variety and they’re only 4 and like 2ish years respectively.

          2
          2

            I know!! I don’t think we will ever be able to cover everything cuz so many new things! Plus not all the old things are funny today or available in HD quality!
            SHINee is 9 I think and they are hilarious so I try and watch their stuff for sure!

            THIS. SO MUCH. I’m having trouble just keeping up to date with what FTI and Winner are currently on lol o.O They’re the only groups where I’ve bingewatched variety etc, cuz there’s just so much stuff, so little time! Oh, and Jinwoon. And JJY. Okay…. so maybe I spend too much time on variety and on yt.

            And yes, Shinee deb’ed the year after FTI, so 9 πŸ™‚ And don’t forget SuJu and their insane amount of back catalogue with their 12 years and 15 members with various shows… I’ve already given up on that… (just realized I always say SuJu like soju in my head… why does it fit them so well? :P)

        (I know what you meant!!!)
        It’s great, they gel? bounce of each other? those are two very different metaphors there but they just, yes, have great chemistry I guess

          (haha just in case ;))
          They bounce of each other in a gelly way, yes. lol
          It’s not like I think they have romantic chemistry or anything like that, just talking about work/music/jokester chemistry πŸ˜›

            PFFFFFFFFFFT okay, yes that works hahaha
            Yeah no that’s why I was trying to come up with a different way of describing it slash agreeing with you, cos yes, it’s not romantic, it’s comedic really.

HELP!! Anyone know French really well? I need help figuring out if FT Island concert tickets can be bought via the link from this site\’s post: https://www.facebook.com/elyseemontmartreofficiel/

    The only place I’ve found for ticket purchase is mymusictaste, but I’m not sure if it’s a legit and safe site to give out all sorts of info to?? The venue is ElysΓ©e Montmartre, so I thought their own site might be a safer bet, but I don’t even understand whether or not you can buy tickets via them and if it’s even their own legit site and ticketsale starts tomorrow morning (it’s night here now!), so I don’t really have much time (esp as I should be sleeping soon lol)!

    *sorry for the manic post I’m just really tired and confused and afraid I’ll miss out lol*

    I am not French, but this is what I figured out:
    https://www.billetterie.elysee-montmartre.com/uk/programme/ftisland

    I pushed the EN button, so it’s partially in English. You should be able to get a ticket from that site.
    Hope you’ll get your ticket. πŸ™‚

      Thank you πŸ™‚ I tried that site, but it’s so little of it that’s actually in English, so I got confused about whether or not they actually sell the tickets.

        I think they do. They wrote it on their FB. And you’re welcome. πŸ™‚

      I’m guessing “En vente le 24 aoΓ»t 2017 Γ  9h00” means that they’re for sale from tomorrow 9am, but I honestly have no clue what “en vente” means lol nor if it would mean that it would be available from THAT site or another. *je suis tres confused* πŸ˜›

        en vente = on sale πŸ™‚ (from what i remember from my french classes)

          That’s what I sort of gathered too (going by the English “vendor” haha), good to know that someone else thinks the same!

          And thank you! I think it does seem really legit, at least more so than the other ^^

          And yes, very cool haha! πŸ˜€ I really hope I’ll be able to get tickets, they’re supposed to be incredible live!

            *fingers crossed* let us know if you have got tickets (and if you get stuck tmr with the ordering, i can help you out with the interpretation of french;) )

          Thank you! ^^ And I’ll definitely let the entire site and world know if I get the tickets haha, I’ll be bouncing up and down so much you’ll think you’re in a Crayon Pop mv!

“Because I’m old”, “okay you’re not” hahaahahahahaha 😂 Kim Jinwoo, master in team-kills and self-goals!

    God! I watched it again just now!

    Hoonie looks drunk with all his exaggerated expressions! πŸ˜›
    Those are punishments?? I would like to see a punishment that would embarrass these people! They really don’t care! πŸ˜‰

    The show is strange for sure! But they are at least trying to come up with new concepts, however weird they might be! πŸ˜€
