KRN - ENG © ktaebwi

Kim Hyunjung (KHJ): Hello Rap Monster. Congratulations!

Rap Monster (RM): Hi, nice to meet you, this is Rapmon from BTs.

KHJ: You are in Las Vegas right?

RM: We have some additional schedules so we’re heading to LA from Las Vegas noe. Please excuse me for taking the call while on the road, thank you.

KHJ: You’re really well-manner. I’m the one who should say thank you for taking the call in such situation.

RM: It’s my honor.

KHJ:To be honest, did you go there with expectation?

RM: Of course, we had a lot of expectation. We thought that we shouldn’t have any expectation but at the same time, we expected a lot too. “They called us all the way here, wouldn’t they give us the award? But anyway let’s not hope too much,” we were kind of in a dilemma.

KHJ: How did you feel like when they called out BTS’ name at a stage like that?

RM: We talked about this among ourselves already too, it didn’t feel real. We just went out to the stage like we were being possessed by something, and in front of us were people like Drake, DJ Khaled. It felt like we were dreaming.

KHJ: Felt like you were dreaming? Back then when you were a trainee, have you ever dreamt of a stage like this?

RM: We actually have never dreamt of anything this big. When we were still trainees, around 1 year before debuting, we went to see a sunbae group’s concert at Olympic Gymnastics Arena. We talked about having to stand on this kind of stage at least once before retiring. We didn’t dare to imagine of attending an award show like BBMAs and receiving an award in front of such people.

KHJ: So you were watching the concert at Olympic Gymnastics Arena and you said “Wow, we have to do a concert here at least once before we die, don’t we?”. Was it your dream?

RM: It was nearly exactly what I said. For real.

KHJ: Those trainees now walked on the dream stage of Billboard and became the first among K-pop idol groups.

RM: It’s our honor.

KHJ: What do you think is the main factor to such global popularity? What is the core point?

RM: The local media outlets always ask us this too so I thought about this a lot, since I have to answer them. And I asked around too, of course. I think K-pop is like a gift set, an assorted gift ser. The music, the choreography, music videos and what we always do, communication on SNS. These things are combined together and once you fall for something, for example, if you listen to the music, you will watch music videos, then if you find the choreography cool, you will look up for performances on Youtube and find the fun videos that we always shoot, then you will check out our SNS and find out what thoughts we have. I can say that it’s extremely easily accessible. So the process of becoming our fans is extremely easy too. And most of all, our typical type of music or lyrics tell the stories of the youth in all over the world, no matter if it’s across the globe or Korea, the youth all feel the same emotions. We think it can create a bond of sympathy more easily, letting them think “So they feel like this in Korea too.”

KNJ: Your songs are in Korean, can those feelings be delivered? Including the lyrics too?

RM: The Internet and such are developing strongly these days, so even if we just tweet something, a lot of people would immediately translate it to not just English, but also multiple languages like Romanian, Portugese.

KHJ: So they translate and make subtitles in multiple languages?

RM: That’s correct. Nearly all of our contents have subtitles, so it’s easier to know what we talk about, what we write, what our lyrics say. I think we are benefitting a lot from the media.

KHJ: An assorted gift set made up from those things. And the finalization of it, the finalization of 2017, we can think it’s BTS.

RM: Thank you for saying that.

KHJ: But Rap Monster, how can you speak so well like that?

RM: Thank you. There’s a lot of chances where I need to speak on behalf of the group, so I think I have to speak well to dignify our group. I always think in my head first.

KHJ: You pulled out English interviews perfectly too. The assorted gift set story you talked about is true in many ways. It makes me think idols are indeed incredible, you started from Olympic Gymnastics Arena and now took home a Billboard award. What will be your next goal?

RM: Our next goal is a worldwide stadium tour. Stadium tour is the kind of tour that attracts at lease 30,000, 40,000 to 50,000 audiences. I can say that our next goal is to hold a worldwide stadium tour.

KHJ: So us older generation can understand that it’s like when Michael Jackson holds a concert and have 3-40,000 audiences?

RM: Yes, we want to do that.

KHJ: Earlier you said when you went to the concert at Olympic Gymnastics Arena yiu wanted to be like that sunbae group, who was that sunbae?

RM: They are called Highlight now right? We got a chance to go to Highlight - formerly known as B2ST - sunbaenim’s concert in 2012. We sat at the back.

KHJ: At the back?

RM: They were so cool so we told each other like “Let’s become like those sunbaenim”. We still sometimes talk about that among ourselves now.

KHJ: It would be even happier because you made it after going through hardships. Having a busy schedule must be really tiring right? What do you want to do first when you come back home?

RM: I always like enjoying the park or landscapes. I sometimes come to Gyeongbokgung too, it helps filling out the feeling of emptiness. I heard the Seoullo 7017 (a pedestrial overpass) has been opened.

KHJ: Yes, Seoullo. Oh, do you follow current events too? How did you know Seoullo is opened when you go abroad that frequently?

RM: I take a lot of flights and they always have newspapers there, so I read them.

KHJ: You need to be this level to become a global idol. Rap Monster, congratulations again. I hope you can soon come back and take a walk in the park or Seoullo 7017. I’ll continue to support and look forward to your future activities and worldwide stadium tour.

RM: Thank you.

One word: skin

It’s extremely difficult to concentrate on his words when she still remembers fragments of his breath in the crock of her neck, fanning over her skin, goosebumps raising where his fingers have never touched her outside the realm of dreams.


send me a word and I’ll post a sentence from a thing I’m working on

anonymous asked:

How do you think Batfamily birthday parties wouud go?

okay this is my first time ever posting headcanons like this so please be nice I’m sorry if I’m not completely on point with their characterizations but I tried and also thanks you so so much for this ask and I’m sorry it took me so long to answer!!

So I think it really depends on who’s birthday it is what the parties would be like. For example, a party for Damian would be so much different from a party for Dick you know?

I think for Damian it would be like just the immediate family and he’d probably be a little “no Grayson I don’t want a party just for living another year” but he’d give in and it’d be just the batfam sitting in the dining room with a small cake and Dick would make Damian blow out the candles and it’d be small but sweet at the same time and not a big deal but it’s really sweet and they eat cake and Damian has to admit the cake was good thanks Alfred

but Dick’s birthday parties are huge because he’s got so many friends and they know he’s gonna want to see all of them and so they invite everyone over and there’s music playing and it’s a long party and it goes all night and they get him to blow out his candles and he has such a great time and he’s probably spending the whole night laughing and dancing and just talking with his friends for a night of peace but also a shitload of fun and at some point he probably gets drunk let’s be real here (as a little kid it was probably a smaller party but I guarantee you Bruce had Clark come over as Superman and that was Dick’s best birthday present ever I think)

For Tim, he’s too busy with his work and I’m absolutely positive Dick would end up throwing him a surprise party because of that and Tim would just randomly walk into the manor and he’s half asleep on his feet until people start yelling “SURPRISE” and he’s totally shaken and he’s shocked that anyone would do this for him at first because he’s not used to having birthday parties because quite honestly his parents sucked and they probably weren’t around to throw parties for him as a kid so I bet he’s pretty thrown by it but he has a lot of fun and it’s not a huge party it’s just his family and then a few of his friends like he invites his friends from the Titans and Kon and Bart and Cassie and idk he’s got a cake and it’s not crazy like Dick’s it’s just pretty chill I guess but he has a great time and he’s really happy actually

Jason’s birthday parties are kinda not legit parties because he makes Dick (who if you hadn’t noticed is literally the party king he’s always throwing them parties) swear not to throw him a party but Dick can’t not do anything so he sorta calls up Roy and Kori and they ambush Jason in his apartment on his birthday and he gives his brother a cupcake for his birthday that year and also another cupcake for each birthday he didn’t celebrate whether that was because Jason had a shitty childhood or because he was dead at the time and Jay will never admit it but he’s thankful for it (and also because Alfred made the cupcakes and not Dick)

anonymous asked:

can you do Light and Capricorn (or mind and rage) 💕

(For a while, this was the only combo-aspect request, but I couldn’t work on it for a while, so I planned it out more than most of my other designs. Hope you like it!)

i don’t want to be weird, but -

Cas in S12E07: “Dean, plaid is not sexy.”

Dean in S12E08

Dean in S12E10

Dean in S12E19

I really don’t want to be that person, but ever since Cas let slip he doesn’t like Dean’s ‘lumberjack’ look, Dean’s stopped wearing plaid around him (Sam hasn’t, because why would he?). I mean, I don’t know what happens in between episodes, and apparently a lot does, but on screen, every single time Dean’s been with Cas after Rock Never Dies he’s chosen to wear a ‘normal’ shirt.

The only exception is S12E12, but, whatever, I’ll forgive that episode anything.

And, of course, for the purpose of this post costumes don’t count, so I haven’t included suits or anything, but just as a reminder, this is what Dean changed into after Cas’ bad-tempered comment - and I’m willing to bet half my liver those were not random clothes he had in his duffel - he went out and bought them, because lumberjack? I’ll show you who’s a fucking lumberjack. Dick.

  • Lion 4: reveals Rose to have been completely clueless as to who Steven was gonna be, effectively destroying the 'Rose knew everything' haze the characters have been in living in since season one, something a lot of people were disgruntled by.
  • (Some of) the Fandom: There's no plot or development to this. It doesn't have what I wanted from it. It's useless. Why did Crewniverse even MAKE this?
