Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

When you realize you haven’t watched anything in the last 3 days- neither drama nor variety! And all because I spent all my day on DB! One addiction stealing time from another!

    I wanna laugh rather evil-ly but ill be nice and go.. aww.. there there.. you still have the while night ahead of you.. Will end up with nothing more than panda eyes at class tmr! And that’s nothing new for beanies is it?!

      Ha! The joke is on you, you I say -cuz I anyway end up with panda eyes! DB till 12 and then my dad wakes me up at 5:30am!!!!!! Good for me though, I have no classes! πŸ˜›
      But I shall find time to watch something today- anything!

        Your dad too?! And are you made to go for a walk/ do yoga too?! I thought once i escaped to Singapore I could sleep in to my hearts content.. but my dad had the last laugh.. he ingrained the habit too deep and i wake up at 6 like clockwork everyday!

        And no class? Are you done with college then?! I vaguely remember you mentioning taking up a foreign language class sometime back and assumed you were a undergrad/masters student

        1
        1

          Hahaha… yes! And same! Even if I am not woken up, my eyes just open at 6! It’s like my body just doesn’t understand the importance of sleep! The worst is when I have nightstays with friends and we are up till 4 chatting/watching sth and then I wake up at 7!!

          Yup.. I got done with my post grad around 5 years ago! Language class is correct- Spanish on weekends just cuz I wanted to learn a new language and had taken it up long before I knew kdramas.. otherwise the obvious choice would have been Korean!

I had a bad day but this made me smile- I usually wouldn’t open such articles but it had SIG as it’s thumbnail, so I just had to.. Good to know that even during his sabbatical, he- or uh- to be more specific- his skills… are not forgotten! πŸ˜‰

        Hi. We’re home today. I managed to read two and a half books, which was nice as well as do some walking. Corsica is very beautiful both on the coast and inland. My brother and sister-in-law took us to some of their favourite places (food usually involved somewhere!).

        1
        2

          Woohoo! 2.5 books is great! Are you ready to get back to dramas now or are you enjoying the time away from them?

          Sounds like a nice vacation!

          Oh and when is the FTI concert? You are going with your daughter, right?

          1
          1

            I took two books and read both so now I’m reading the Rum Diary by Hunter S Thompson. I’ll catch up on the dramas I’m already watching but I have a lot to do for the next few weeks. The concert is on 27th October then we are booked on a basketmaking course in Ireland at the end of November. What about you?

          Oh 27th October is far… I thought it was in September!
          Ooh that sounds interesting! We? You and your daughter?
          My only kdrama watching cousin sis just recently left for Ireland for her post-grad! I miss her but mostly jealous because she is in beautiful IRELAND!

            Yep. My daughter and I. We’ll be in Galway (West) for a four-day course. We need to work hard before we go to make the most of the time there.

    put some music on, that always calms and balances me. glad to hear at least one aspect of Seo In Guk has S-K positively triggered. I hope they have the smarts to hold on to talents like SIG and YAI, a stupid thing like military exemption cannot be a reason to just pass on them. even though I understand why S-K is so hung up on the attendance, when they have a neighbor turning almnost ISIL-like

          Okay… ermm… just tried listening to them both… and somehow the one without static is just as much messing with my brain as the other one o.O Don’t think I could listen to even the non-static one for the whole track w/o any ff’ing tbh.

Beanies\’ effect- I now want to watch Lingerie Girl\’s Generation! Also- want to check out AoY2 but I think the wait for subs might be too hard to bear!

    Saaame. I think I’ll give it a shot this weekend, though. I ended up deciding to just wait on AoY2 to end and just binge. I can’t take the waiting. Watched one episode and decided to hold off because I don’t need that kind of obsessive sub stress right now.

    Thankfully I still have AOY1 to binge-watch, because waiting for AOY2 and Argon’s sub is real torture.

        I have too many dramas to watch when it was airing last year. I plan to watch it after catching up to the latest eps of Three Meals A Day. Maybe by that time, AOY 2 has already fully subbed.

        1
        1

          Yeah I am focusing on Night Goblin and Wizards of Nowhere- hoping that by the time I am done with these, I would have AoY2 all subbed and ready to marathon..

    Gosh the beanie effect is terrifying!! It’s made me watch so many dramas I would have just passed over and destroyed any semblance of real world vs kdrama world balance i had!

    But I’ll have to admit.. most of the dramas were worth it.. I’m resisting AOY2 & Lingerie girls purely cuz the days they run on my schedule is like the devils.. plus I already watch 2 weekend shows.. sigh.
    Javabeans and girlfriday need to discovery the 4th dimension soon!

      I am still holding on because I am also simultaneously going through a kdrama slump! I did manage to finish School 2017 despite the slump and all cuz of beanies and their wall posts!

      I am literally not watching any show but I am still being cautious! AoY2 has that subbing problem too!

      I had followed Produce 101 since the beginning but never really focused on him that much.. But I have since then, seen him on WI, HT and now this show- he is so adorable when he gets all shy! Actually almost all of these 11 kids are cute..

      1

        This is my first time seeing him in anything, I don’t watch all HP episodes and I didn’t watch Produce 101 (both seasons) so I only got to know him here! He’s so much like my younger sister with his jelly beans addiction, I’m always nagging her to stop it but here it’s just too cute, LOL!

          Hahah.. it is definitely cute when someone not related to you is doing it! I would be too worried about that person’s health to care about cuteness! πŸ˜›

            0

      Hehhe… now I have to ask- do u worry more about the not sharing, or about the eating? πŸ˜›

      (Also unrelated, but you go to the gym right? I wish to lose around 9kgs in 2 months.. Is gym the best option? I have been going for walks and exercising on my own but I don’t see a lot of progress.. I already eat too healthy, or as healthy as I can, to change anything about my diet..)

      1
      2

        If I have to be honest then both, LOL!

        Oh, I don’t go to the gym, I workout at home, have my own room for that, no fancy equipment just my exercising mat and some dumbbells. I started working out to lose weight but now I do it because I love it and it helps relieve stress. I think you can do that but it all depends on what you eat and your metabolism. Try to focus on cardio exercises at first, start with beginner’s level and if you think you can do more then go for high intensity interval training (HIIT), they worked the best for me!

        I can’t say much about food since you already eat healthy but try a diet that’s low in crabs rather than low-fat and don’t forget to add cheat meals, your body needs something to work with, if you starve yourself or don’t get enough calories, it starts storing fat and you won’t lose any weight even if you workout like crazy!

        I’ve been following FitnessBlender for 3 years now and they’re seriously amazing, I lost 35kgs with them (Yes, I was an obese kid, proud of myself now), here is the link to their channel, you can check their videos and choose what you feel that you can do:

          Yup, pretty sure I was- both at ‘liking’ and subscribing! πŸ™‚

          Posting on DB is the perfect way! I guess you guys didn’t post about your second podcast- you have 3 in all now but i hadn’t seen any post for the 2nd.. I so wish tagging someone on DB would send them a notification.. would make communicating quite easier!

          That was the right decision! One has to start somewhere! And for beginners, you guys were quite good! Sorry for the oh-so long running commentary on the first podcast! I will try and make the next one shorter πŸ˜‰

    Oh, and btw (yes I’m writing a btw on a random post, deal :P) I just watched Seunghoon’s Kpop Star cuts… Wow… just… wow…. dude sure worked hard and it sure payed off, cuz he’s a million times better at singing and rapping than he used to be lmao. But awww… Papa YG actually crying when he was cut was just so sweet and unexpected. Guess he was always destined for YG haha πŸ˜› Have you seen it all yet?

    Oh, and do you know if Yoon’s cuts are anywhere??

    1
    2

      I haven’t seen many Kpop star cuts- mostly that audition clip where he slipped but turned it around and used the mat as a skateboard… I was just telling Sic the other day about how he is literally living his dream of working at YG..

      Nops.. I will look for them.. I have just seen clips of him singing that song he made famous..

      1
      1

        Someone compiled and subbed them all: http://www.dailymotion.com/user/ainsxstar/1

        I’ll try and look for Yoon’s one day too, I’m just a bit lazy with those things sometimes and mostly just watch what I stumble upon lol. Like the only reason I watched all Hoon’s cuts was bc someone conviently shared that link.

        1
        1

          Ooh this looks good! Thanks!

          Let’s see who gets over their laziness first πŸ˜›

          Which reminds me… Did you find a WINNER TV link where the subs are not late? I was re-watching it on YT and subs were coming in later.. Still funny but I would love to bookmark one where the subs are synced.

          Also, I started Night Goblin.. I dunno what I feel about it… Like literally nothing happens. And I don’t particularly like that WI guy.. but I guess I will continue watching it cuz ep 2 was better than ep 1…

          And.. still haven’t started Wizards of Nowhere.. but Jinwoo has left for the third trip and it is Rome and now I really want to watch all episodes..

          1
          4

            Yeah, I found all of it on Winner Circle’s own fan site and as far as I recall, no delays woo ^^

            I quit ep 1 like 5 mins in lol. Ep 2 was fine, but somehow felt pointless. But now I’m at ep 6 and kinda addicted. It gets a lot better than ep 2 imo. JR is sooo quiet though. Hoping Hongki’ll be able to unloosen something in the kid lol 😂

            For Rome?? Awesome. Although I actually like to see them traveling countries I don’t know much about. Still waiting impatiently for the new ep here, but I think it’s been put on hold due to the strikes?

            1
            0

            @kaybee @obsessedmuch Sorry for creeping in your convo but I saw WINNER and had to. Haha!

            Yes, Wizard of Nowhere is on hold because of the strikes. HUHUHU I didn’t know they were going to Rome for the third trip! (Third in Jinwoo’s perspective) I liked that they went to places I don’t know such as Georgia and the Kamchatka, Peninsula. But I guess it’s a different challenge altogether going to Rome too?

            @whoopeeyoo I don’t think you will get a notification for this- but you are welcome to join any of our WINNER conversations any time! Fair warning though, we talk about them in almost every post! πŸ˜‰ Are you a new fan or have been following them for some time? I know you like Mino- is it because of him that you like Winner?

            Yup. Rome. He got seasick there. It is becoming a running joke with the WinnerCity staff that they never pack what is needed in the trip. In the last trip they packed winter clothing thinking that because the first trip was to a warm place, the second would be to a cold one.. and then they were being all sad about how he had to carry a sweater while already wearing one! πŸ˜› And then this time they forgot to pack medicines. And here i am wondering, don’t idols pack their own luggage when going on trips? But knowing Jinwoo he actually can take care of himself…

            I don’t even know much about Italy so it’s all okay for me!

            @obsessedmuch I hope you still get to see this!

            I originally ventured into WINNER because of yes, Minho. Loved him in New Journey to the West so I got curious. And I generally like the music of YG (although like WINNER said they’re not the typical YG sound or even image) so I thought of nothing.

            And now I’m slowly getting into the fandom. I saw Wizards of Nowhere for Jinwoo and I’ve also watched his web drama. Up next is Seungyoon’s webdrama.

            I don’t think I’ll reach your stan levels but I’ll try! Hahaha

            I’m currently watching Half Moon Friends though. I initially didn’t want to venture to their variety shows with the 5 members because I might like NamTae so much and then feel really sad that he’s gone. But now I’m gobbling everything up. Haha!

            Seunghoon’s looking so good with Minho wearing Burberry in London goodness (Also, I’ve been secretly dropping by your page always just to look for Winner-related stuff. Hahaha)

        I am guessing you would have gotten a YT notification/recommendation for this but if you didn’t- Winner at Hongkira- I am only at 15 minutes in but I am loving the Hongki-Winner interactions already!

          Thanks for the links sweetie, will check them out! πŸ˜€

          I did see the Hongkira one hehe. They’re so much fun together! And the best part is that they seem to genuinely enjoy themselves, which is so nice. Seunghoon seemed really worn out though and Jinwoo looked so tired. Hope they don’t neglect their health to have all those promotions and comebacks..

            Yeah their sense of comfort doesn’t look put upon!

            They did look quite tired- I kinda liked what Hoon said on being asked why he looks down- he simply said he doesn’t know why he feels down -which happens often to the best of us all of a sudden but I don’t think celebrities ever answer like that!

            I am happy that they are done with promotions and seem to be enjoying doing other things- Hoon and Mino in London for fashion week, Jinu in Rome and Yoonie in prison cuz the shooting has finally begun! I really hope the drama is good!

        How far along are you with Night Goblin? I’m seriously becoming addicted, waiting every week seems foreeeeever. It’s become really funny! And Hongki takes such good care of JR, it’s really sweet. At least this one won’t be on hold, cuz no vested interest in governments etc.

          I am on ep 3 right now.. It’s slow progress.. I somehow have not been able to watch anything for the last 2 days because DB is eating up all my time! I am gonna stop looking at fan walls now.. Sicarius’ wall alone is enough action I guess πŸ˜›

    @whoopeeyoo

    Believe it or not, I am fairly new to Winner! I got to know about them and kpop in general around their last album (Really Really and Fool). I haven’t even watched any of their webdramas- though We Broke Up is high on the ‘to-watch’ list.

    In fact @kaybee got me interested in them- she posted some of Jinwoo’s pics and this video of him getting lost in Japan and I was on board! I finished watching Winner Tv and WIN:Who Is Next? soon and there was no looking back! If you really want to see their beginnings you should check out both these shows… But yes, I did fall in love with them quite quick and if I look at my fan wall, there is not much other than Winner and Seo In Guk! πŸ˜›

    Ooh I’m watching Half Moon Friends too! I don’t usually watch reality shows with kids in them but my YT recommendations kept popping up 2 min cute videos of Winner with kids! The show is so adorable! And I am really loving every episode! It makes me laugh like crazy, facepalm a lot, and sometimes get close to crying!

    I recently realised that I keep talking about Seunghoon! Kaybee believes I am in too deep to change now! (Hee.. great! I will try and post more)

      Ooohh, yeah, you’re fairly new too! Although our strategies are different, I started watching the more recent ones and then I’m working my way towards their debut days. Haha!

          I’m from the Philippines!

          Oh, I only blog for fun but now I’m on hiatus as a book blogger. It has perks such as receiving advanced review copies for review but after a while it felt like too much pressure to receive them too because I felt obligated to read them. Anyway, I hope to get back to book blogging too and find a balance with the fangirl life and my book blogging. I live life in phases so when I’m super into one hobby, I almost completely forget the others. When I was a very active book blogger (2013-2015; I started slumping by 2016), those were the years I didn’t touch kdramas. After being so obsessed with kdramas that I even joined a subbing team, my entire focus shifted. It was also the time I quit kpop.

          Now I’m here again! Hahaha

          2
          3

            You joined a subbing team?? That means you know Korean?? How cool are you!? πŸ˜€
            Right now I am more into hanging out at Dramabeans than anything else! But it is really eating away into my life! Like, I get no time to do important life things! So I hope to gradually reduce that. On the other hand, since I found kdramas I have gradually left reading as a hobby! Which is not a good thing (Masters in English lit here and reading was one of my first love).. so really finding a balance is something that I am looking for?

            Quit kpop? But you are back to it again? Which group did you follow/stan before?

            I stumbled across some old Winner fan blogs today about each member’s struggles.. I don’t know what happened but since then I have been really upset and my head aches.. Kpop is not good for health for sure!

            @obsessedmuch Nah, I only worked as an editor/QC person. How I wish I know Korean! Even though I’ve been watching for years, I don’t really pick up much except for a few words. I’m too reliant on the subs. Haha! My job was to check for grammar and spelling, make sure the subs can be read (in terms of placing and how long the subs appear), and more on design/typesetting for jdramas because they use a lot of font and colors (back then).

            Yeah, I slowly quit kpop back then. After Jay Park left 2PM, I became less and less interested. But back then and until now, Big Bang has been my fave. VIP forever! But I was also a fan of SHINee, 2PM, Super Junior, MBLAQ, and B2ST. The latter second-gen idols.

            Hope we can find balance in the things we love! I also miss reading huhuhu

            Hope your headache disappears soon!

            *randomly hops into convo* Oooh you love books too?! πŸ˜€ It’s funny how a lot of Beanies seem to love reading too. Maybe it’s really a “story” addiction haha.

            The phases thing is so me in a way. I tend to switch between music, movies, TV and books – and after kdramas it’s music, movies, variety, dramas and books lol. I’ll be mostly reading for like a year, then go crazy doing historical movie projects and whatnot for the next year and then back and forth it goes, with the other ones sandwiched in here and there. So weird.

            Also, I loved SY’s webdrama, the We Broke Up one. Can’t wait to see him in the new drama from the Reply PD! And with satoori! … That was perhaps my favorite part of Halfmoon Friends – SY speaking busan dialect with the twins. It was just so adorable haha.

        Ah okay! Still cool that you joined a subbing team! I always wondered- do the subbers do it for free or is there any money involved? How does it all work??

        Big Bang are kings for sure.. I haven’t really checked them out fully yet! I love SHINee- but more for their variety! Haven’t really checked out all their songs yet… My kpop knowledge is pretty limited- Winner, FT Island, Block B, AKMU a lil bit of SHINee and Highlight/Beast and a sprinkling of YG artists in general..

    Just saw this ep earlier w/ my mama! His Choo Choo Train dance was too funny! Do YOU recognize which K-pop group he supposedly learned this dance move from? Pwahaha! I groaned when I heard the intro talking about the mission/race whatever, but had a blast watching this ep! I can’t believe the whole intro/show your charms/talent segment lasted the entire ep! Lawl. Not even complaining because it was hysterical.

      Nah.. didn’t recognize but that girl who went all about how it really is from her group’s choreo was cute! πŸ˜›
      Yeah that intro is getting old.. I am tired of all the mission/races… I liked the first half but didn’t really finish it.. was the second half good too?

      1
      1

        Well… if you enjoyed the first half, then you’ll like the second half too, because that entire intro/show off your charms/talents/skills segment lasted the entire ep! Haha. The ep ended with the gang splitting into two groups to go eat and played games on the bus ride to the restaurants. Literally nothing much happened, but it was fun.

    Aw, thanks for thinking of me, friend! I’m okay, I’m okay! Irma was a ferocious beast, but my family and I were among the fortunate ones that only got hard and heavy wind and rain–no serious damages. Our power went out for about 1+ hrs last night. It came back sooner than expected, considering most people are still w/o power. Easing into my daily DB routine again! I’ve missed you! Oh, didn’t you say one of your relatives live in FL? Tampa, was it? Are THEY okay?

      Ah that is good… They are okay too.. they had to camp out at a high school one night because of fear of winds breaking the house, but thankfully nothing bad happened- to them or to the house..

      But I have seen the after-images of the wreck Irma brought and my heart goes out to the ones whose world was turned upside down.. I really hope the smaller islands also receive help..
      I missed you too! Was quite worried when I was watching those weather images of Tampa and Orlando being in the target area… I am so glad you are okay..

        Oh, thank goodness! I’m so glad to hear that! Good for them. I was surprised to find out that most of the shelters were actually schools, but I’m glad your relatives utilized them and was safe.

        Me too. I hope everyone are/will be able to receive the help they need to recover and get back to the closest thing to normalcy.

        Oh, we had our eyes and ears glued to the TV and tracked Irma’s every move. Thank you again so much for thinking of me!

Heard Yoon is going around carrying 4 sets of underwear whenever he goes out, just in case they are kidnapped and other members are not ready! πŸ˜› The PDs have resorted to asking fans for suggestions on how to confuse the 2Seungs- Mino and Jinu are easy targets they say (obviously- both are adorable fools)!

      Their YoF- no idea.. they haven’t yet been kidnapped and the members are being all smarty pants carrying their bags everywhere so that they are not caught unawares😂… YoF cast is almost always kidnapped when they least expect it but these dunces are making it hard! 😄

      The PD literally asked fans to send suggestions but the winner staff recently posted that the members keep looking at fan comments too so to somehow send them secretly!

        So now it’s basically fans+staff vs Winner. Them fans can be super sneaky though… Please keep me updated- I don’t follow any of them on social media haha, and I want to know how this ends.
        I’ve seen Bogummy’s YoF kidnapping. But he’d be easy to kidnap, he can be quite naive πŸ˜› (And then he kept worrying about the staff instead of himself and it was adorable)

          Lol yes.. and you bet I will! πŸ˜› The fan comments were so hilarious! They were all like good for the PD that I have already been planning how to kidnap them for the last 3 years! And the hashtags the staff came up with were funny too #Let’sActLike WeKnowNothing #YoFWinner? #WeHaveNeverHeardofIt #WeShallActInnocent and more!

          Bogummy’s kidnapping was the cutest thing ever! It didn’t even look like kidnapping! Didn’t he apologize to he staff for his car being too small? Such an innocent soul! You should watch how Haneul was kidnapped! His flustered expressions were so hilarious! He was accosted right after an award ceremony and told to come. He was wearing a suit and had to travel in that to Iceland!

            Ahahahahaha. (That’s a little bit worrying if they had actually been planning that but I know fans so whatever) Brilliant. I love it.

            Yes he did! And they were all like ‘wjytf are you apologising to us we’re taking you to Africa’ and he was just his usual humble kind self. I need to watch his whole episode actually, I’ve only seen the “kidnapping” bit haha.
            Omo I can just imagine Haneul like that. Hehehehe
            Guess YoF is going on my variety list…

          Lol yeah, nothing surprising there.. fans are fans… I really thought Winner fans were comparatively chill… they are still, but there are some who would jump down other’s throat for mentioning Namtae or iKON.. but I guess there are some (or many in some cases) such characters in each fandom..

          Oh yes, you have to watch it! Bogummy gets busy eating at the airport and misses his connecting flight! And his expression was priceless! And there were many other adorable moments too! I just skimmed through Iceland for HaNeul- it was quite good too!

            To be honest, it was probably just a joke.
            But there’re always the nasties in every and each fandom indeed. Doesn’t matter whether it’s kpop, or kdrama, or DC or Marvel, or gaming, or American TV shows, or British TV Shows, or books, there are always saesangs, annoying and overly noisy fans. God forbid you get all in one. O.o

            Oh that boy. *smh*
            You skimmed through Iceland… idk man I think I’d watch it 70% for Iceland and 30% for Haneul hehehe

      It was a joke definitely😄 The Inner Circle is weird only when it comes to Namtae.. they are quite cool otherwise…

      Lemme put it this way- skimmed for HaNeul (also couldn’t find subs) and it went in my list for Iceland… the country is beautiful and they go to such amazing places!

      1
      1

        Why is that, do you think?

        Hahahahahahaha yeah ok fair enough. Iceland is gorgeous and I want to go so badly.

        1

          Because Namtae left and Winner was on the verge of disbanding… they faced a tough time there.. some think the huge gap between each of their albums was also because of Nammie.. but there are many supporters as well who have pledged to support OT 4+1 in whatever they do.. the boy did what he did because it was needed to be done.. he really does look happier and calmer than before.. the other 4 are working well too… they have achieved the kinda success that only their first album achieved… I still miss their Baby Baby/ empty selves.. they seem to have changed themselves to suit the demand of the hour- which works fine but I really hope that their next CB has some songs which are more their earlier selves..
          Oh and then there are some who keep comparing iKON with Winner- because they literally started as competitors despite their strong camaraderie! But for each such fan, there is a Winkon fan who loves all and any interaction between the group…. fandoms are always complex and one can’t really understand everyone there… I love Namtae and I like the bromance between winner and ikon- haven’t followed them much so can’t really say I am their fan..

          Me too man! So many countries are in my list!

          1
          1

            Ah. So the usual…
            Can’t say I know enough / like enough of their music to have a comment about that really. Except that Baby Bay is beautiful and I would not complain if they did that style again.
            *is definitely a winkon fan* πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

            Ofc, ofc… the whole world is on my list, but currently, the Nordic countries are RIGHT at the top πŸ˜›

      Memory? Is that the music in the beginning? I don’t think I know that song or maybe I do and just don’t know it by name. But yes, it starts like it is going to be a slow song and then it becomes something else entirely!

            Ah. Musicals are funy πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ I would recommend it but I know that Cats is one of those either-love-or-hate-musicals haha. It’s based on a book of Poems by T.S.Eliot though, so you could just read those.

            (in bits and pieces we’re slowly getting there. It’s easier knowing everyone’s names already! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ )

      Ah Eliot and I don’t gel well…. way too post modernist for my taste!

      (Lol good! It also helps that there are just 4 members! )

        Well his Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats is… not like his other poetry… actually they’re the only Eliot I’ve read in full, but they’re really fun and funny
        And I mean… cats. πŸ˜›

        (Well 4 and 1 ex so 5… but yes. Hahaha Too easy after EXO and SVT… :P)

          Ah… if it is unlike his other poetry, I can actually check it out. And yup, cats are a big draw! πŸ˜‰ I mean it’s not like I hate him but I very rarely understand what he is trying to say and when I do, I fail to understand why he said such a simple thing in such a roundabout way. Made a literature student’s life difficult! πŸ˜›

          I think I have asked this before but I don’t remember.. what did you study in university?

          (Lol yup 4+1 is still quite easy.. and it helps that they look very different from each other.. I used to get confused between Namtae and Jinwoo initially cuz their profile was a lil similar plus every comment said Jinwoo is the pretty one, but it was really hard trying to identify one pretty one amongst them! πŸ˜› And then there was the confusion between the 2 Seungs… Mino was easy though)

            I memorized the whole Macavity poem when I was 11 ish for a Speech and Drama assessment. It’s still one of my favourite poems. (I mean… I like a lot of poems, but yeah…)
            Hahahahaha! Because he wanted to? hehehe idk… poets man πŸ˜›

            Speaking of poetry… would you like to read some of mine? I realise I haven’t sent you that writing I was supposed to… O.o

            Uh… well, I didn’t study. Haven’t studied? Yet…
            I did a year long Scriptwriting course, but it just gave me a certificate. And I want to lots of things, the top subject being Linguistics. But I already know what I want to do with my life (write and draw) and I don’t technically need a degree for that, so studying would just be for interest, or for learning new skills, so idk if I want to spend $50k on it yet. But I also need a job to get me to being self sufficient off my art and writing, and people like qualifications for that so I don’t really know what I’m going to do next.
            That… deviated from the question slightly hehe.

            (I think for me the two Seungs threw me off as well, even though they look nothing alike, at first. But then once I learnt Hoonie I was like ‘so the other one who isn’t smallish and pretty, is Yoonie’ hahaha *process of elimination*
            And ofc, I’ve known Mino since Okey Dokey Yo. He is easy. Very distinctive.)

          Lol that is explanation enough! 😂

          Yup, I would love to! I was gonna go back to that thread Monday and ask for that story! 😃

          Ooh yes, I knew about the script writing course.. maybe you could enroll in a distance learning programme… might be cheaper and u don’t have to get involved fully perhaps…

          (Wait you are confusing me! Comparatively smallish and pretty is yoon.. hoonie is the tallest in the group and wouldn’t really be called technically pretty.. I find him really good looking though!)

            Coool! Well remind me anyway and I’ll flick you some things then! Not tonight because I am so tired and cleaned most of the day haha

            Yes, I thought we’d discussed something of it before.
            Maybe… idk yet. I have lots of options πŸ™‚

            (ahaha sorry it’s because I forgot to name…
            Once I recognised Hoonie (because of his rapping, and him in Really Really) that left Yoonie and Jinwoo to learn. Thus, Jinwoo is smaller, and the :pretty one: so he who remains must be Yoonie… hahahaha
            Hoonie has good facial structure mmm)

          Shall do on Monday then… am off for my class anyway..

          Ah yes.. Jinwoo- pretty and tiny hyung of the group. Also called international lost boy/innocent boy.

          Yoonie- leader, now maknae too, lead vocalist.

          Hoonie- dancer, always extraa, rapper, also is a deputy at YG, he plans many things for the members and maybe even for other groups..

          Mino- needs no introduction 😄 most well known face of the group.. oh and Bobby’s new album and a song feat Mino.. I am excited!

          Yay! 😁😁

          Lol.. that is actually quite close! Deputy manager… wants to go high up the YG hierarchy.. he actually lived in a rooftop apartment from where he could see the YG building and it was his dream to become a trainee and then also work there… boy focused a lot on impressing YG in kpop star (he was in the top 4)

          Yuss! Bobby’s first solo album! Releasing this month

      Hahha…. I am still hoping that someone will sub it! Maybe I should ask some of the ICs I follow.. or maybe not- I would rather be a silent spectator even in this fandom πŸ˜›

        Pfffttt I know that dilemma all too well. You want it subbed, but you don’t want to enter the fandom and the craziness o.O

        1
        1

          Yup yup! The craziness got a lil too much recently because Mino is featuring in a song in Bobby’s next album and some iKonics called Mino pretty mean stuff.. ICs were up in arms man!

          I mean I do like this fandom more than the others I have observed because most of the times they are pretty chill but iKON and Namtae get some sections pretty riled up..
