Honestly TOP's scandal won't change the way I see them
I’m not gonna defend him, saying that “he’s human, he makes mistakes” and all things like that because his mistake will stick to him until the end, people will always remember.
But I’m also not gonna let his mistakes define him. I was there during Daesung’s car accident, I was there during GD’s own drug scandal, I was there when they made it back together to be pushed down with more scandals, I was there when they worked things out and made a huge breakthrough as one solid group. I may not talk about them 24/7 here and there, but they are the first group I ever got attached to, so deep down I’ll always be a V.I.P.
And this scandal doesn’t change me a bit.
He’s a human who made mistake he should’ve avoided, but even the most problematic person has their own story. He knows a lot of his fans love him. He knows. And, I believe that there’s a story to this scandal that we don’t know. So, really, I’m not gonna let what the media told us drives the way I think of him.
I love them. I love all 5 of them. This doesn’t change anything even a bit. That’s a promise.
you are not less of a fan if you can’t afford to buy merch or any of the albums of your fave.
you are not less of a fan if you don’t make gifs or edits.
you are not less of a fan if you don’t write fics
you are not less of a fan if you don’t know korean/the korean culture (but don’t try to ‘act’ korean!)
you are not less of a fan if you can’t afford to go to the concert of your fave
you are not less of a fan if you forgot your fave’s bday/anniversary
you are not less of a fan if you didn’t know that your fave has a sister
So it’s time for some people to stop picking on people who obviously can’t do all these. Your love is enough for your fave, and trust me, they do appreciate it after training hard for years! You are as important as any other person in your fandom!
When I first was introduced to Bigbang back in 2011 Im not gonna lie but I found GD the most interesting. Especially after watching his ‘Heartbreaker’ MV 😂 My friend had emailed a list of links to Bigbang vids and also the solo projects for each member. GD was first on the list so I guess maybe that was why??? Then I watched T.O.P’s 'Turn It Up’ and I was pretty meh about it the first time around (it eventually grew on me). She didn’t send anything for Daesung, Taeyang’s was 'Wedding Dress", and for Seungri she sent 'VVIP’ MV because she thought I would like the concept (at the time I was really into J-Pop and stuff. Even then I ended up not liking VVIP. OTL). Based on that email I became very GD & TOP biased. Then 2012 rolled around and I became greatly interested in TOP mainly because I related a lot to his personality and his deep booming voice, mayn. I also took the time to research a bit more about Bigbang as a group (at this time their solo works didn’t particularly catch my interest) because their music really got to me.
It was then when I attended Bigbang Alive concert in LA that I realized I was wrong all along. The moment Seungri graced us all with his presence and his fun and friendly personality and his incredible talent I fell in love. I left the venue head over heels in love with Seungri. I sat at home for weeks feeling beyond upset that I had never given the boy a chance based on my impression of one video. I didn’t take the time to research more on his solo projects back then. I never knew 'Strong Baby’ or 'What Can I Do’ and all his other songs of his freaking album existed until that concert! I felt like a blinded dumbass.
Although each of the members have their talents and their own charms, it didn’t compare to how I felt about Seungri. After reading more about his life, his struggles, his will to learn and to live life to the full extent, I felt admiration. I don’t care what people say, he has his flaws but he has a lot of strengths that make me wish I were more like him. Seungri is the kind of person I wish to be, the kind that puts themselves before others and that regardless of his insecurities he still has a smile on his face ready to take the world head on. The kind of person that goes beyond the limit to learn and see how much more they can do.
Long story short, Seungri is my lord and savior who’s word has saved me from eternal damnation. Amen.
Ok no, but really. I feel so dumb because I was very shallow before. My mind was set on GD & TOP but their style doesn’t fit me in the least. Their music is great, they are great. But Seungri is far greater in my heart ❤️ I love his catchy beats and his sweet voice. It makes me upset when he hardly gets lines in songs. I think that was another reason why I slept on the boy before. I realized that Seungri wasn’t able to show his full capabilities. That is why I am super excited for his new album :O I want to hear my boy sing SIIIIING!!!
If Seungri ever sees this I want him to know that my biggest regret in life will forever be the fact that I thought I was a TOP stan, when in reality Seungri should have always been #1 😭👻 I will repent for my sins.
Anyways that is all I have to say :’D I don’t even know why I am doing it. 😂😂😂
BIGBANG Reactions: When the members of BIGBANG and GOT7 get into a fist fight
Warning: Most of this is pretty safe and no such language is involved, but if you are in anyway affected by violence, please do not read this. If you are uncomfortable with this post, please let me know and I will keep it private.
Thank you for the anon who submitted this, as it was pretty funny to imagine this actually happening.
And BIGBANG/GOT7 are my bias groups, so this would be pretty interesting to write…..
Now I wouldn’t know the exact reason of how they would get into a fist fight (and i would hope that they would never have any sort of conflict between each other) but these roles would probably show what the members would probably play out.
Who Fakes Being Knocked Out:
Youngjae (Real Name: Choi Youngjae): Youngjae being the little sunshine he is, he wouldn’t want to hurt a fly, let alone the BIGBANG and/or his fellow members. Therefore, he would probably just fake being knocked out and lay low until all the drama is over
Daesung (Real Name: Kang Daesung): this child obviously hates violence. He would also lay low and just stay on the ground until everything blows over, because Daesung is such a precious angel. No one would ever see him hurting anyone over anything.
Who Has Their Eyes Closed And Is Wildly Windmilling Their Arms Because They’re Dorks And Don’t Really Know How To Fight:
Bambam (Real Name: Kunpimook Bhuwakul): You can’t really deny that he would do this, I mean he could be dabbing and spinning/jumping around while everyone else is either trying to lay low or trying to beat the shit out of each other (once again I hope this situation will never happen)
Yugyeom (Real Name: Kim Yugyeom): He’s best friends with Bambam, and they do everything together, and I mean everything. So he’s also dabbing and windmilling his arms, as well as adding that dip game he’s got, just trying to laugh off everything that would be happening around him.
Seungri (Real Name: Lee Seunghyun): He would probably join in with Bambam and Yugyeom, dabbing and windmilling their asses and arms off, as Seungri is pretty much friends with everyone and all he wants to do is have fun and not fight. Seungri would fist fight someone, but only for the right reasons, in this case, there’s no way he’s fighting anyone.
Who Is Trying To Be Peacemaker And Break Up The Fight Using Their Mom Voice™
Mark (Real Name: Mark Yi-en Tuan): I can’t see Mark fighting anyone, he’s quiet and sweet and wouldn’t want to hurt anyone for the wrong reasons. He’s also such a softie (kinda like Youngjae), but he wouldn’t lay low and do nothing about it. He would just suggest talking things out with the members so they can all get along.
Jinyoung (Real Name: Park Jinyoung): He’s pretty much the mom of GOT7, so for him to be trying to resolve things and break the fight up wouldn’t be surprising whatsoever. He would be shouting at Bambam, Yugyeom and Seungri to try and break the fight apart, alone with Mark, but of course, the maknae’s don’t listen.
G-Dragon: (Real Name: Kwon Jiyong): Jiyong, being the softie he is, would definitely stand back from the fight and try and negotiate with Mark and Jinyoung to try and get them to stop fighting. He would try and get the maknae’s help with Jinyoung, but as I said, the maknae’s don’t listen.
(I think after a while, Mark, Jinyoung and himself would just give up and start playing Go Fish or something idk)
Who Is Actually In This Goddamn Fight That Was Suddenly Cursed Upon Them:
TOP (Real Name: Choi Seunghyun): Shouldn’t be surprised with this one. He would try and defend his members from getting punched by Jackson and/or JB, and wouldn’t make peace until he had screwed them up well enough that they would never pick on any of the BIGBANG members again. However, after a while, TOP would get tired and probably get faked knocked out and lay on the ground with Youngjae and Daesung.
Taeyang (Real Name: Dong Youngbae): There’s definitely no way Taeyang would back off from this. He would definitely show them who is boss and actually beat the hell out of Jackson and JB. However, I think that after a while, he would decide to try and talk it out instead of using more violence.
Jackson (Real Name: Jackson Wang/Wang Jia Er): I think Jackson would get the most angry out of this, despite him respecting everyone and everything in this entire planet. Jackson would throw fists at anyone who would talk badly about his members. Imagine the fists he threw in ‘If You Do’ MV, but in this case he would throw fists 10x harder. However, I think he would make a decision to stop and also try to talk it out along with Youngbae.
JB(Real Name: Im Jaebum): Jaebum would purely just be defending his members alone with Jackson. He doesn’t take shit from what other people say about his fellow members, and would get pretty angry about anyone trying to talk shit about the GOT7 members. Overtime, JB would get tired, and just try and make up with Seunghyun and the rest of the BIGBANG members, and try and make sure that they would never get into a violent situation again.
SO WHO WINS?
The answer is no one. They all pretty much gave up in the end and made up, making sure that they would never get into a situation like this again. In fact, I think that this fist fight of theirs might even make their bonds stronger and lead to better friendships. This would probably be laughed off and never thought about again.
Ok, but in all honesty, I hope that this situation would never ever happen to anyone (music cue to never ever), and I hope to God that no person ever gets into a violent situation like this. Once again, if you were affected by this post, please let me know and I will private this post.
In all love and support, please respect both BIGBANG and GOT7, they are both talented and beautiful groups! They both deserve the very best, so please love and support them!
When I was a teenage trainee and I could see no furthur than my nose, the five of us sweated, laughed and cried in the hot and wet basement practice room everyday. Sometimes, I became a selfish young boy and wanted to quit, but I could overcome each one of those days all thanks to you, my fans, who trusted and loved me. It’s the big power of fans that made me come all the way until today. You are the ones who made me a brave man who can see far and wide. I thank you for loving me with all your heart, even when I was just a young boy who had nothing.
「최승현」Choi Seunghyun, BIGBANG10 The Collection: A TO Z 2016
“Hi! Can I request a G-Dragon scenario where you guys have been dating for quite a while and he publics your relationship and the fans accept it and go on a show and have an interview like where you guys met and stuff. The fans ship you guys much. And at the end of the show you guys start to tease each other. Thanks!~”
Requested by: anon
Here it is. I hope you’ll like it!
-GIF isn’t mine-
Today is the day we have our interview. Since the day Jiyong made our relationship public, people can’t stop talking about it. What’s good is that Jiyong’s fans are really happy for us and ship us!
It was my very first interview, and the minute he told me we were going to be interviewed in a show I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I was thinking non-stop about what I should say, what I should wear and what I should or shouldn’t do.
So here we are backstage, waiting for our turn. I can’t even sit still, my left leg is shaking like crazy, I can only think about how nervous I am.
Jiyong noticed the minute we arrived at the studio, he’s sitting on the couch in our dressing room. He has an amused look on his face.
“You know you look cute when you’re nervous?” he says still looking at me. I immediately stop.
“This isn’t funny Ji… You know I can’t help it” I try to say while calming my heart rate.
“You still look cute Jagi!” he quickly answers while getting up and kneeling in front of me. He takes my hands in his “Remember what I told you, be yourself don’t overthink! I know you’ll be fine and I’m right next to you the whole time” he finishes, placing a gentle kiss on my hands.
“You’re on in 5, so please follow me” an assistant tells us.
Jiyong laughs because of how nervous I was. He helps me stand up and we follow the assistant, my hand still in his. He lightly strokes the back of it with his thumb. We then start to wait for our names to be called. I start to breathe in and out in order to calm myself down.
“Come here” Jiyong whispers, taking me into his arms “You’ll be fine Jagi, I will be right next to you and you won’t be the only one to answer questions. I love you” he whispers in my ear.
“And now, I have exciting news! The two people we can’t stop talking about at the moment are here” I hear the MC say.
I give a quick but sweet peck on Jiyong’s lips before we have to go on.
“Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome G-Dragon and Y/N” the audience starts to get wild while we are taking our seats.
“Welcome to both of you, I’m really happy you guys could make it” the MC says after the audience went silent.
“Thank you for having us, we are really pleased to be invited in the first place” Jiyong answers with his famous smile.
“So my first question would be, how in the first place did you think it would be a good thing to make your relationship public? Because it is an huge commitment for the both of you” she asks mainly looking at me.
“We didn’t really talked about it, I guess it felt right to make it public. We’ve been together for a while now so it only felt right to make it public. She agreed with me when I asked and so was YG” Jiyong says, looking at me with his eyes full of love.
All I could do was nodding at his answer and blushing at the way he was looking at me.
“Guys, do you see the way they act together? They’re so cute!!” the MC says to the audience.
It makes me blush even harder.
“We’re all dying to ask, how long have you been dating?” she suddenly asks. Jiyong looks at me, meaning I have to answer.
“We’ve been together for over 6 years now” I quietly answer, feeling shy and nervous.
“6 years? I’m impressed! You guys are good with hiding stuff. My next question is about how and where did you guys meet?” she asks with a kind smile.
“It was so random! But I’m not good with words, Y/N will talk about it. She tells stories way better than me” he says, looking at me with an evil look. I already killed him couple of times in my mind.
“I wonder who’s writing songs in this relationship” the audience and the MC suddenly chuckle at my statement.
“We actually met at a dinner party. Teddy Park and I were neighbors before I met Ji. And he randomly invited me for one of his dinner and it was the night we both met. But Teddy told me, Ji asked him to invite me. And during this evening, he was really sweet to me and we stayed in touch since this moment” I say while giggling.
“Oh my! We didn’t know he was this sneaky, care to explain GD?” she says with wide eyes.
“For my defense, Teddy said we could invite her and I only approved. I mean, we’ve met in the lobby before the actual dinner and I always thought she was pretty” he answers while hiding his face in his hands.
“Are you blushing Ji?” I suddenly tease him. “Do you have another question?” he asks the MC to avoid my question.
“Yes actually, but don’t think we forget what happened!! Who said I love you first?” she asks with a smirk plastered on her face.
“I actually did” Jiyong says.
“Really? Who thought that the tough GD was actually romantic” the MC says, looking at the audience.
“He actually is the most romantic person I’ve ever met” I suddenly say to the MC.
“Really? What kind of romantic is he?” she asks as if we were best friends at a café.
“Please don't” Ji asks me, giggling and hiding is face between my back and the back of the couch.
“He’s actually the kind to randomly buys flowers and gifts. He’s also the kind to go on simple dates like go for a walk. And saying sweet things 24/7” I say, staring at the love of my life.
“Guys, do you see how they look into each others eyes? It’s like they’re staring into each others soul!” the MC fakes a whisper to the audience.
“I have another question left for you guys. But only GD can answer it! What is Y/N good at?” she asks with a smirk.
“Y/N is good at everything! She’s a good cook, an amazing girlfriend. She’s making me feel complete. She’s always there when I need to talk to someone and she makes me feel alive. She’s my main inspiration when it comes to music. Because of her, I don’t forget where I come from and I think I’m a down to earth person because of her! I love her so much for everything she does for me, I’m really grateful to call her mine” he suddenly says, looking at me.
I was staring at my hands and blushing like crazy. All the audience could say was ‘awwww’ and ‘so cute’.
Ji has never been this open about how he feels about me. It’s actually the first time he is this open about his feelings.
“Oh my! Y/N he’s a keeper! Guys this is so cute!!” she says a bit to excited.
“Okay I think it’s time for us to say goodbye to these two lovebirds. Thank you for giving us your time, and let me tell you.. YOU GUYS ARE SO CUTE” she says full of excitement.
“Thank you for having us!” Ji and I both say.
We were back in the dressing room, both of us were silent while we were taking our belongings.
“You were so cute and you still are” Ji says, hugging me.
“You know you’re cute when you’re blushing?” I answer, smirking.
“Aish, seriously? You know I hate when you make me blush” he says, hiding his face in the crook of my neck.
“Are you blushing right now Mister GD?” I say, giggling.
“What makes you think I am?” he says, hiding in the crook of my neck.
“As the person who completes you, I know you pretty well I guess” I say still smirking.
“Why do I feel you’ll tease me about what I said?” he says now looking at me in the eyes.
“You know I love you” I say after leaving a kiss on his cheek. “You’re a keeper remember?” I say, leaving the dressing room.
This is my very first scenario! I hope you like it!
Please send me requests, I would love to write more😊
It has just come to my attention that TOP of BigBang has been rushed to the hospital because he overdosed on prescription drugs due to the harassment he has been receiving from Netizens and Media.
Now I don’t know if this was accidental or on purpose, and for right now that’s not the point of this post. The point of this post is to bring to light that this situation has been blown out of proportion. HE SMOKED WEED. IN HIS OWN HOME. He didn’t fucking kill someone, he didn’t sleep with someone underage, he didn’t drive drunk. No. He only smoked weed.
I’m saying this because this ISN’T a big enough problem for people to threaten him or for people to leave him. Let’s be honest, no matter what anyone does you have NO RIGHT to bully people on the internet or in person.
People out there acting like TOP has done something disgusting and inhuman. There are artists out in the world, especially in America, who have done worse and are still receiving love and support.
Where is the love and support for TOP?
As I’m writing this I haven’t heard whether he has regained consciousness but can we all please just show love and support, and pray if you believe in that stuff, that he wakes up and returns to his life with VIPS and other fans of Kpop supporting him. This shouldn’t have happened and I hope nothing like this ever happens to any person.
I wasn’t really sure what should I do since it’s HIS birthday and I don’t feel particularly talented in any way; a lot of people far more gifted contributed to this beautiful day… but! Since I love Jiyong wholeheartedly, I just wanted to do something little, :) Happy Birthday Ji, the most beautiful person I’ve ever heard of – kind, loving, caring, talented…. I hope you’re very much aware of all the love your fans feel towards you and at your worst times, remember we will stand behind you no matter what. Thank you for everything♡
Hii! Could I get a ship request with BTS, Bigbang and Got7? I'm 5'2 and a half, I love to read and write, I'm pretty extroverted but I also love my alien time. I get excited easily and basically a Minhyuk(from MX), Hobi and Yoongi rolled into one person. Don't ask how because idk either man. And that's really all there is to me. Thank you!! ~🌺
I ship you with..
Jackson Of GOT7
This boy screams extrovert to me. He’d love how social and extroverted you were. You’d be able to hit it off from the begining really well. Also the fact that you were smol, would be such a plus be our boi is small himself and wants to feel powerful and be able to protect you.
Taehyung of BTS!
He’s quite a social butterfly and would love to date someone as extroverted as him. He’d love to be with you, hang out and basically be silly with you. Total best friend type of relatioship.
Daesung Of Big Bang
Just like the other two he’s an actual social sunshine who’d love your ability to get along with people easily and socialize with them. He’d love to just sit in a room with you, both just reading a book enjoying each other’s presence, in comfortable silence.
To all those who listen to, admire and love kpop. So I tried spreading the love of kpop to so-called “friends” and I know that doing that is very dangerous considering they may think I am crazy. Something happened today that acc lowkey hurt me, so i was on the phone to my friend whilst with other friends and we were talking about learning the dance to call me baby by EXO for our new youtube channel. The minute they heard me explaining the song to my friend and singing the korean bits as I had a quick fangirl moment, they literally treated me like an outcast for the 15 mins i was with them. They literally crossed the road and walked on the other side, and when i tried to catch them up cos i thought they were kidding, one person was like “don’t touch me” he even flinched. The other person stopped in their tracks and somewhat seemed disgusted that I was into that. LIKE WTF? DOES LIKING KPOP MAKE ME A DISEASE? And just so y’all know KOREAN, JAPANESE AND CHINESE ARE 3 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES. They like to say they are all the same damn thing ffs. Now all I really want to say is, if maybe, people look at you like you’re a weirdo cos say, you listen to kpop or learn far eastern languages or something different to the rest, don’t be phased by it. I have been told endlessly that I am “annoying” or “so weird” because I learn japanese and korean and listen to kpop/jrock. Honestly it is hard to comprehend that the same people who should respect me make fun or mock the fact that I’M TRYING TO BE A MULTILINGUAL BISH! Like you can stay speaking dry english forever while imma be in another country speaking korean/japanese or some shit. I feel like Kpop has shown me a new way to life and groups like EXO, BIGBANG, 2NE1 etc are so inspiring to me and you know what, I enjoy kpop more than normal music now. I’ve even started deleting some english songs cos I won’t have enough space on my phone for kpop lmao. Everyone on here PLEASE embrace your love for kpop and anything else you are interested in. Don’t let mean people get in the way of you being such an amazing person and open doors for yourself. *exhales*
You know what message me, let’s all have a chat on life and whether you have loads or little friends who are into kpop like you, and your experiences.
Once upon a time there were 5 men chasing after the same dream… To become a singer, a rapper, a person shining so bright on stage it fills their hearts with warmth & love. After years of hard work, hardships & contineous self development we can finally say they’ve Made it!
A amazing, inspirational, loving, kind, unique man. You were the one to show me that it’s okay to different. You help me through a rough time in life. As the years past, I watch you grow into this wonderful person. I wish you all the happiness in the world. With all the love…
G-Dragon’s interview with AnAn Magazine, 160224, in full:
“In a word, right now, this album perfectly represents who BIGBANG is in this moment. Each song was born in our experiences, and in the way our perceptions and ways of thinking have changed. Honestly, three years ago when our last album came out, we would never have been able to make an album with this kind of colour.”
We’re treating our separately strong personalities as an asset rather than a hindrance.
This was how G-Dragon spoke of the appeal of the new album.
Q: In these 3 years, how has your fashion changed?
“When I was younger I loved fashion that radically stood out, and that was brilliant and excessive. Right now, I prefer the minimalistic all-black look with one point that stands out. When I wear black, I feel like I’m retaining all of my passion inside my body.”
Q: BIGBANG just ended the Japanese leg of their 13-country world tour.
“Rather than us having succeeded in Japan, many Japanese fans have watched over us since we were nothings, so we love them as if they were our family. Japan is a very important country to us.”
Q: On the other side, you were raved about in the American media. What were the appeal points that attracted an appreciative audience like America?
“There are many Asian groups influenced by American music, so I think Americans appreciate the fact that we understand real hip-hop music and add our own unique colour to it.”
Q: BIGBANG are now shining throughout the world, but what are your thoughts about the gap between your real and stage personas, and also about the different personalities in BIGBANG?
“The character of our music is tough, but we actually just have the mischievousness of a bunch of high school boys (laughs). During the talk parts of our concerts, we only joke and talk about stupid stuff, but I believe our various personalities are one of our strengths. If handled badly our different personalities could clash, but at the root of it, each member of BIGBANG is a good guy, so it becomes a positive instead of a negative.”
Q: What is the gap between your own stage and real personas?
“I think people think I’m a very detailed, nitpicky person, but in reality I’m a total good-for-nothing. If we have a day off I’ll just sleep all day, and if I wake up I’ll just do nothing (laughs). I use all of my energy for making music, so it’s like I need time to recharge my batteries.”
Q: Is there an unexpected side to any of the other members?
“SOL’s sense of humour is just like a child’s. There’s a lot that he finds funny that I still don’t understand, but when he finds something funny he’ll keep at it for a month or more. A recent gag he finds funny? I don’t pay attention, so I forgot (laughs). VI… doesn’t have any (laughs). What you see is what you get. He loves meeting people, and he’s just overflowing with vitality so he doesn’t even sleep. He flies all over the place every day so I’d also love to know what he’s doing.”
Q: You’re the person who holds all those personalities together. What do you think the future holds for BIGBANG?
“No matter what the future holds, we will always believe in and support each other, and go forward as 5 members. It may be difficult to have a career as singers, but I think we will be able to remain artists. We will continue, of course in the field of music, but also in visual art, and other fields, and build a new culture of our own expressions. That is my hope.”
Disclaimer: So, this is my very first… Well, thing that I’ve ever posted. After reading so many scenarios for a long time, I suddenly felt like I wanted to write one myself and this is the result. I hope you like it!
Summary: Meeting him on a rainy day
It was raining, yet again. It was the third day in a row, but you’d still forgotten to bring something that would protect your immaculately styled hair and perfect make-up from being ruined. Damn it. Sure, you could run back up and ask if you could borrow an umbrella, but the guy you’d worked with today was a total creep and you didn’t have enough patience to deal with him again today. You were really tired and just wanted to get home and get some rest for work tomorrow. Some people had the impression that your job wasn’t that hard or demaning. Because, really, you just had to stand there all day long and look pretty. But, oh, how wrong they were. Being a model was more work than even you yourself had imagined before you started. Working as a model had been a dream of yours since you were a little kid. Being able to actually live your dream was crazy, but you were loving each and every moment of it.
Standing in the doorway of the building where your most recent photo-shoot had been, your were waiting for the rain to stop enough so that you could run and either take cover in the coffee shop across the road or quickly get a cab and just go home at once. Unfortunately for you, it seemed like that wouldn’t be any time soon. It was pouring down and as you stood there contemplating what to do, you failed to notice the person walking towards you.
“Hello, neighbor”, a deep voice said to your left suddenly.
You turned towards the voice and was surprised by what - well, who - you saw, standing in front of you under a big umbrella. He was wearing a pair of plain black jeans, a white dress shirt that wasn’t buttoned all the way up and a trench coat that made him look very classy. It suited him very well and you had to fight the urge to smile like an idiot at how handsome he looked. Choi Seung Hyun.
“Hello to you too… Neighbor”, you said and smirked at the way he’d decided to address you. So, he wanted to play?
"Didn’t think I’d run into you here”, he said and took a step closer, his eyes full of mischief. He was such a dork sometimes.
“Well, I just finished work and now I’m trying to find a way to get away from here, without ruining all of my gorgeousness”, you said and pointed at you hair and face with a nonchalant look on your face, but a smirk still managed to find its way to your face. You weren’t completely unaware of the fact that you were indeed someone who’d easily be considered beautiful. That was on of the major reasons why you were even working as a model. But, even though you had always been a very confident and straight-foward person who always spoke her mind and knew what she wanted, you weren’t exactly confident enough to say that you yourself thought you were beautiful. Well, not when you were being serious about it. Jokingly admit it is something you often did.
Seung Hyun chuckled and looked very amused at the answer you gave him.
“Since I’m such a gentleman, I’d be happy to help your… Gorgeousness to stay unharmed”, he smirked.
"I don’t know… I don’t think my boyfriend would like that”, you said and had to fight the urge to smirk again.
“Oh? Boyfriend, you say?” he said, “what kind of dork is he?”
You bit your lip slightly to keep you from laughing at the way he asked.
“He’s the biggest kind of dork you could ever imagine”, you started, “but he also happens to be the most handsome and charming dork on the planet”
“Is that so?” he asked and took one more step towards you, now very much invading your personal space. Not that you minded, though.
You looked at him and smiled, while a very amused look still grazed your face. This was very entertaining, indeed. He, however, looked at you with an expression that was slowly changing from playful to serious. He was almost done playing now, you could easily tell. Right before he opened his mouth to speak, he slowly started inching his face closer towards yours and you felt your body tingling with anticipation.
“Would he mind it if I offered you my umbrella?”
“What about if I offered that we share my umbrella instead… Would he be annoyed by that?”
“What if I… Offered that we could share a cab?”
“He’d start to get angry”
“And if I invited you in to my apartment?”
“Furious”, you answered simple without taking your eyes off of him.
By now, he’d leaned in so close that you could feel his hot breath on your face and your whole body felt on fire because of how close he was.
“What if I did this?”
After he’d finished the question, he leaned forward and pressed his lips to yours in a kiss that made your knees go weak for a second. To keep you standing somewhat steadily on your feet, he quickly snaked a hand around your waist and pulled you closer to him. You could instantly feel the warmth raidiating from him and only then did you realize how cold you yourself had gotten. But that new discovery only occupied your mind for a second or so, because you soon felt that you needed to be even closer to him. So, you wrapped your arms around his shoulders and tangled your fingers in his hair at the back of his head. This effectively deepened the kiss.
Soon, both of you pulled away to catch your breath and Seung Hyun proceeded with resting his forehead against yours. You looked at each other without saying anything for a few moments. The only things that could be heard were your panting breaths and the rain that was still pouring down.
“If you did that”, you started in a whisper, “he’d probably kill you if nobody stopped him”
“I see”, he said and smirked as he stood up straight again, while still having his arm placed firmly around your waist, “I’ d say it’s worth the risk, though”
“You sure? He’s not someone you’d want to mess with”, you said and smirked.
“I’m pretty sure I can take him”, he smirked back and wiggled his eyebrows at you slightly, making you laugh.
“Also… He just happens to be the love of my life”, you suddenly said and you could instantly see the playfulness in his eyes disappear and be replaced by surprise and then immediate happiness and adoration. He then leaned down and pressed his lips gently against yours before resting his forehead against yours again, caressing your cheek.
“I’m done playing”, he said, “I’m the only guy who’ll ever be able to do these things with you”
“I know, baby”, you said and smiled at him.
You looked at each other for a few moments, enjoying your private moment in the middle of the empty street while the rain still poured down. When you suddenly shivered from the cold, Seung Hyun caught on at once.
“Let’s go home, baby”, he said and removed his arm around your waist, only to have it slide down and grab your small hand with his large one.
“Okay”, you smiled and leaned your head against his shoulder as you two made your way towards the edge of the sidewalk under his large umbrella. He got you two a cab and once you were off, the tiredness you’d momentarelly forgotten when he - the man beside you, who’d been your neighbor for three years and your boyfriend for one and a half - arrived.
“I love you”, you said and rested your head on his shoulder, closing your eyes.
“I love you too”, he whispered and gently rested his head on top of yours.
Life was good and it was all because of him. He was your own personal sun on rainy days, that carried an umbrella that would protect you and keep you dry. The man you loved more than anyone else. Choi Seung Hyun.
There's been controversy towards some Korean rappers chastising other rappers for "selling out" and becoming mainstream and/or joining idol acts or whatever it happens to be. What is your feeling? What is your response to their purest of people who feel threatened by broader acceptance?
Well we're actually huge fans of anything that is…that is just really good, you know, and 'pure' is actually very different concept from 'good'. We don't feel that 'pure' necessarily means 'good', and that's why we're not afraid to do things that are not expected or not considered original or pure. At the same time we love listening to kids taking it and doing it in their own way, which is what a lot of the idols groups are doing.
Personally I think one of the greatest groups to come out of Asia is Big Bang. I'm sure a lot of people would agree, and Big Bang is a unique group because they can be accepted within the hiphop community as well as the broader community. Even if you don't like hiphop, you will love Big Bang. Even if you love only HipHop, you will love BigBang, and that's a very special position to be in and I'm sure they're in that position because they were allowed to experiment with different sounds and they weren't afraid to do all of that.
So I mean, if you're going to look down on that, you go to be "pure" and as good as them. But the problem is, you know a lot of times... you might be doing pure music, but if it's just not as good as their music I mean *shrugs and points behind him*
I’m sitting here trying to think of how to express my feelings about you in a text post and I’m finding it very difficult, not because I don’t know what to say, but that how I feel about you is completely indescribable.
