Things I (a long time ARMY) want to tell new/very recent BTS fans.

  • 97% of Bangtan Bombs have english subs if you search for them. Make sure you also watch the really old bombs and if you really love BTS, watch the Vlogs
  • That being said, PLEASE watch ALL of the members Logs. Even the less popular members Vlogs. You will learn SOOOOO much about the other, less popular members, and maybe even learn to appreciate them more. For instance, the log where J-Hope addressed his feelings about the mix tape and just in general, or Rap Monsters English log, where he addressed his feelings before and right after joining BTS, this one is in english too so that’s a bonus. Or one of Jin’s early birthday log, where he talked about the members and the fans, and you can see how clearly he loves them ok. He’s so precious okay.
  • Your first fav might not stay your ultimate fav okay. It’s okay to love all of the members, it’s okay to love one of the members more than the others, but appreciate them all and recognize that this whole group is precious.
  • if you’re new to kpop in general and BTS brought you onto the scene, BTS is not the only kpop group out there so please don’t get group elite and shun or act rudely towards fans of senior or even newer rookie groups for not liking BTS or agreeing that BTS is the best.
  • Also, if you’re new to Kpop and Korean culture: Hyung is what you would use to refer to a close individual who either is your brother, or you’re closely linked to them as if they are a brother. (they use this word a lot in bombs because it’s a vERy common title, so don’t be too confused by it. Also, it should be noted this is used to refer to OLDER boys, so Jungkook for instance, is no one’s hyung, because he’s the youngest, aka the Maknae) (also: a bias is your favorite member. Stan is what you would call supporting a group or being a rEALly big fan of the group so that you follow their music and want to keep up to date on them.)
  • Don’t comment rude things on any platform where the boys can read them. Also, voting for the boys during award weeks/months is not as difficult as it may seem, many of the voting platforms accommodate english speakers and have english options. Those that are Korean/Hangul only, there are plenty of tutorials that will teach you how to vote. follow them closely and it isn’t difficult, you can support the boys even as a foreign fan.
  • If you want to buy BTS merchandise it can get very expensive for foreign fans and/especially because they release a LOT of buyable content, so make sure that you pick and choose things carefully if you aren’t made out of money. Don’t be upset if there are things that you can’t buy. Lots of if not all of the content that they sell will probably be uploaded or at least copied or talked about online so you can at least keep up so you won’t feel left out.
    • That being said, if you do have the money and do become a really big BTS fan or a die hard ARMY, feel free to support the boys occasional, but if you are going to buy BTS merchandise, make sure it’s from a reputable seller, preferably one that will link back to the boys so that they can get the stats in PR? This is just optional though, in the end, supporting them is the goal even if it isn’t through use of money.
  • Jung Hoseok (J-Hope) (dance line + rap line) is more than a ray of sunshine 25/8, he is a multi dimensional human being with many sides so don’t say rude things to him because you assume that he’s an indestructible goofball who doesn’t care what people think or say…tbh he cares so much you probably have no idea. He is the main dancer and is the choreography leader. He loves ARMY’s and BTS, his family and dancing above most if not all things. Used to be a really famous dancer before he joined BTS. (he’s still a famous dancer guys ok) He tends to stay in the center front 3 positions, OR, at times, hidden in the back for some reason??????? only a little shade @ bighit for that tbh….
  • Jeon Jungkook is the ‘face’ of the group, he has the most positions within the group (vocal (ex)rapper line, dance line) and he is well known these days for being one of the most popular members, and for his freaking reality show appearances!!! He is NOT ultra super shy but he is rather introverted and he prefers alone time to large groups. He likes anime and is a super nerd, but he’s also super passionate about dancing and BTS, and he really loves ARMY’s. He tends to stay directly in the middle during performances, and when he’s missing (like if he’s sick for instance) you will definitely notice that he’s not in the formation.
  • Park Jimin (dance line, vocals) he hits the high notes more often then not, he’s often in the front 3 positions with the rest of the dance line, and he’s jokingly often referred to as the choreography blackhole on game shows because he gets nervous and goofs up the choreo… :”) His stage persona is very bold and sexy, he’s a flirt and he lifts his shirt up so much, but off stage he’s a slightly timid, caring, soft, cheesy goof who loves his boys and ARMY’s so much it’s wild. Don’t mistake his stage persona for his only persona. Also, this boy tries SO hard, and deserves appreciation for how hard he works…
  • Kim Namjoon (Rap Monster) is a pretty well known Rapper, (Rap Line & Leader) He’s got a great voice actually, he can sing pretty well, not just rap. He has a hand with producing the music (for instance he produced much of Young Forever, and he produced very much of the fan dedicated song I know with Jungkook accompanying him on vocals). He’s pretty well known, a good chunk of foreign fans find bts through his solo rap music and he’s almost always one of the most easily recognized and remembered BTS members. He’s pretty introverted and introspective, he’s a gentle giant who accidentally breaks things because he’s clumsy and doesn’t know his own strength and also worries about how dust might feel to be dust and be insignificant. He’s soft so please don’t ever be mean to him or disrespect him. He is a GREAT leader, the only one that would suit BTS.
  • Kim Seokjin (visual, vocals) is the oldest member of BTS and everyone always calls him mom, even the members. That’s because he takes care of them all in just about every way. He doesn’t get nearly as much love as he should, he’s consistently ranked the lowest in popularity poles, (not that people really seem to care about those, but it does back up the fact that he’s SO unappreciated) He isn’t the biggest fan of dancing, hes said that he dislikes dancing the most, however, he ALWAYS tries his hardest without even complaining, and he’s always able to keep up with the others/choreo. Also the way he treats ARMY’s is the BEST.
  • Min Yoongi (suga) (rap line) is recognizable in general for being the quiet ‘sleepy’ guy, which, is partially correct. He is pretty quiet and pretty sleepy, because he works SOOoo hard. He sticks tends to stick to the outside middle parts, not exactly the middle 3, but also not the ‘wings’ aka the outside 2 spots (which are where Rap mon and Jin stay~) and he’s a seriously good dancer tbh. Seriously, he may not be a part of the dance line but that boy can really hit the beats ok. Also he’s SOO passionate let me tell you what. He’s also very nice to fans, he always answers neutrally when they ask him what his type is during fan meets.
  • Kim Taehyung (v) (vocal, visual) This guy is really well known and super popular. I think he’s consistently ranked as the #1 most popular member in South Korea. He’s very popular with Foreign fans as well. He’s funny and passionate and he doesn’t hide his true nature or self very often. Please don’t call him Alien, he doesn’t like this. There’s more to him than just being the odd/airhead guy, so much more you don’t even know. He’s so clever he really is, and he works so hard and loves his group so much. He loves BTS and ARMY’s more than you can even imagine too, he’s SO passionate about bts tbh. Taehyung is president of ARMY’s fanclub because he’s BTS’s biggest fan.
  • The above is the basics now for some things you should go ahead and unlearn before you even pick them up or think them:
    • Jhope is NOT useless.
    • Jin is a vERY talented vocalist.
    • if you’re a writer who is new to BTS but wants to write fanfictions, please do NOT: write Yoongi as careless badboy asshole who just sleeps a lot. Don’t write Park Jimin as an over the top ultra daddy who will spank you for eating the last chip in the bag. Don’t write Hoseok as only a jack in the box sunshine character.
    • Please don’t fight among ourselves about which ships are the best.
    • You are not better than anyone else just because you stan a popular member. You also don’t have the right to feel superior because you avoid supporting popular members. In the end, it’s okay to love any of the boys, and preferred that you love ALL of the boys at least a little bit.
    • If you’re a minor please act like a minor: as in; don’t do disrespectful, lewd things directed @ or about the boys.
    • If you ever get to go to a meet and greet with them, please don’t crowd them too much or be too overzealous and wild.
    • Never forget that they’re real people, struggling, passionate artists who work practically day and night, almost all day every day, to do what they love, and to bring us a piece of themselves. Don’t ever think for one second that they don’t work their entire ass off and their pour their souls into this work. This is about more than whether they’re handsome or who is the handsomest, who has the most fans. tbh At the end of the day this is about the music and their connection to it, and the way it connects them to us.
160816 Suga’s FC Post//Trans

The thing with music is that it comes easy then becomes really hard then comes easy again / sometimes (I) sit there for dozens of days and nothing comes out and other times (I’m) there for only ten minutes and music comes out / hmm (I’ve) been making music for 11years now and it’s still hard haha like life

Turns out I started making music since I was 13

During this long journey I think I was able to take time to organize my thoughts on who the person ‘me’ is / although I was able to organize my thoughts on who I am, I’m not going to tell

Of my beats, I chose only the aces to work with / I had saved them for Bangtan’s album but well…I think I’ll be able to make better music anyways :) / I’ll be doing music for much longer than I have been so far *laugh*

I spent close to half my life making music, you’d think it’d get tiring but while living my 24years there hasn’t been anything else I’ve been as passionate for / since my personality is impatient anytime I started something new it never lasted :)

I’ve always wanted to be the best to someone

That’s why I was restless and anxious while comparing myself to others, not being satisfied (with my work), being greedy, thinking, being sad…

Greed which was a weapon sometimes turned into anger

While working on this mixtape, (I) went back to my 13 year old self and saw a memory stuck in the corner of my mind / When I first started making music, rather than someone who is the best at making music, I wanted to make music that would give comfort and emotions to someone.

I think this work has been work that brought me comfort

Why does this young guy have so much resentment

The guy of expectations was always so far from me so there were many times when I clenched my jaw* / due to that I was always able to show you beyond expectation

What a relief :)

I don’t really like interpreting and explaining songs

Music isn’t the creator’s but the listener’s

That’s why during my album reviews I don’t explain the song or the lyrics but I focus on the process in making the songs / Even if I were to explain, it’s not something that really can be understood / Interpretation is solely on the listener

Chew it out, tear it apart, taste it, enjoy it to your heart’s content

While doing this work I felt like I was going back and forth between heaven and hell multiples times a day / Sometimes I’d feel great about something and then get scared about messing it up / sometimes I’d feel ah this is enough and then feel a bit of regret / It felt quite different from what I felt (while doing) Bangtan’s album / I started this while going around on tour and it was crazy but while working on the second half I’m thankful I had some breathing room because the bighit family helped.

Thank you to Yankie hyung and Suran nuna who helped without hesitation with just one phone call even though it’s not even an official album and just a mixtape :)

Will be together with you at your creation and at the end of your life
Wherever you are, will welcome you
In the end, at the end of adversity, will be in full bloom
Though the start may be humble, the end will be prosperous
*lyrics from so far away feat. suran*

Min Yoongi is most definitely a genius

This. This is what it looks like when it’s your first wedding anniversary & your husband is deployed. This is what it looks like when your husband makes every effort to make all of this “normal.” This is what it looks like when he talks you into a FaceTime date at a restaurant & you start crying as soon as you sit down because it all feels too real that you can’t celebrate together. This is what it looks like when he says “my idea of our first wedding anniversary celebration was to take you on a date & surround you with love.” This is what it looks like when he says “as much as I’d love to be there, I can’t. So there are a handful of people that love you to surround you with love tonight in my place, because no pretty girl deserves to sit alone.” This is what happens when your families, your support systems, your biggest fans show up with flowers & a card & yell surprise. This is what it’s like to ugly cry in Olive Garden & sob for a good 10 minutes. This is what it all looks like. It looks like the good, the bad, the hard to handle, & the silver linings. This is what it looks like when you marry the man that makes all of your dreams come true & fights every day to make the world a brighter place. This.

Super Junior Celebrates 10 Years Of “Kiss The Radio” ~

On August 21, the guys of Super Junior celebrated an amazing ten years of hosting their KBS radio show “Kiss the Radio”! 

The show began on August 21 of 2006, less than a year after Super Junior’s debut in November of 2005, and was first hosted by members Leeteuk and Eunhyuk. Yesung co-hosted with Leeteuk for several months in 2011, with Eunhyuk returning for the second half of the year. It was then hosted by Sungmin and Ryeowook until April of 2013, with Ryeowook taking over as solo host until he left in April of this year to prepare to enter the army. Leeteuk has now returned, and is the current solo host of the show. 

August 21’s episode of the nightly show was therefore a special one for the guys, as it’s been such a big part of their history as a group over the past decade. Yesung joined Leeteuk to co-host the episode, and Heechul surprised them both by making a sudden appearance at the studio, wearing a “Super Show 6” t-shirt and Super Junior snapback and joining them for the rest of the broadcast.

During the show, Leeteuk read out a letter from their fellow member Eunhyuk, who is currently in the army. They also laughed as they played a song that Eunhyuk recorded for Leeteuk’s birthday back in 2008. (for video - for letter)

The show featured guests Kim Jungmo, Kisum, U-KISS’s Soohyun and Hoon, DickPunks’s Taehyun, and singer Son Seung Yeon, who all came to join the anniversary party. 

The guys also shared lots of photos to their social media accounts from their special 10th anniversary show.

Stop being hateful towards ARMYS

People need to stop labeling ARMYS as the worst kpop fandom. That’s far from true. Generalizing BTS fans like that is fucked up and childish. Iv'e gotten hate from Got7 fans, BTS fans, EXO fans, Shinee fans Bigbang fans before but do you see me blaming ENTIRE fandoms for any of it? No. I blame that those individual people. Entire fandoms shouldn’t have to be put down just because some people are being idiots. It’s nobody’s fault but those people who decide to be complete assholes to others. It’s not the fandoms fault, it’s not the kpop groups fault it’s THEIR fault.. The whole “This why I hate ARMYS” “ARMYS are the worst” thing is overrated and I honestly feel like people jump on this hate bandwagon for two reasons. 1 for reblogs, likes or retweets. 2 They’re just assholes who find any reason to be blame armys for every little thing and encourage other people to hate them as well. It’s overdone and honestly I’m sick of it. It not only effects fans that have nothing to do with the immaturity of some ARMYS but it also effects BTS. Some kpop fans genuinely hate BTS and say all types of negative bullshit about them based on the fandom. BTS has nothing to do with it and they shouldn’t be blamed for any of it..They work WAY too hard to have people hate them for no reason. I also see some ARMYS saying things like “I’m ashamed to call myself an army?” WHY? For what? If you love BTS and you support them why are you denying being apart of their fan base? That’s messed up. BTS doesn’t deserve fans that are literally ashamed of supporting them. No artists deserves fans like that. You’re either here or you aren’t. Honestly you have nothing to be ashamed of. If you’re a chill fan who doesn’t get involved and/or start drama then you have nothing to be ashamed of. Calling yourself an ARMY doesn’t mean you represent the negative people in this fandom. If you’re one of those fans who doesn’t put down other idols to lift up BTS then there’s no reason not to call yourself an ARMY because again you do NOT represent the negative people in this fandom. I don’t know where I’m going with this rant.. I just want people to stop blaming everything on ARMYS even though other fans in other fandoms do a lot of crazy shit as well and yet half of those fandoms don’t get half the hate ARMYS have been getting for awhile now. The actions of these individual people do not represent this fandom. If you want to add something go ahead I just needed to say this.

Can people not hate on other ARMYs who like Yoongi’s mixtape only because he’s not their bias? And can people not pretend that they have the right to decide if someone is allowed to change their bias to Yoongi or not after his mixtape has been released? Because you don’t. Just be happy that his work and he as a person are being appreciated.

So… Tyrell came to save Elliot to the basement with help from Dark Army(cf. my prev post), then took him to the hiding place. and when a Dark Army guy was about to put a black rough-cloth bag on Elliot, Tyrell interrept them and took his little god back into his arms, covering those big eyes with soft and warm hand, whispering to Elliot that the exact place of hideout must not be known, and during their journey in a car he kept holding a trembling body, or maybe used his expensive silk tie, which gave off his scent, as a blindfold.

Elliot was anxious, feeling fear, painful, but not feeling lonely.

Ooo please help me correct my english at least their words, I can’t imagine what they will exactly say. ༼;´༎ຶ ۝ ༎ຶ༽

Okay wow I can’t believe it’s over….I honestly was so glad and very fortunate to have seen Shawn this tour. He has an amazing voice and is so gifted at what he does. He sings with passion and you can tell he loves what he does. Shawn’s music has always inspired me to try new things and to not be influenced by others opinions. 2015 was such a hard year for me but I wouldn’t have gotten through it without Shawn and his music. I’m so grateful for having been able to find this kid on Vine! One of the best decisions I’ve ever made! I’m beyond grateful to have gotten to know @lilmuffinmendes and @callingmendes we might not talk as much but they are some pretty great people who have helped me with the making of this blog! ❤ Thanks a whole bunch Shawn ❤❤

anonymous asked:

NOT A CONFESSION: maybe the next time you open your ask box, you could like blacklist certain topics so people cant send in confessions about them. Especially posts about Armys. Not about BTS, but just all those negative or defensive posts about Armys. lately your blog has a lot of negativity on it, and I know it's not your fault, but if there's too much of a topic you could ban it for a certain length of time. I'm just tired of seeing so much stuff about armys and I don't even stan bts

thanks for the suggestion! i do think the amount of army opinions has definitely gone down, so i don’t think it’s really necessary to blacklist them right now. 

though, we don’t really get too much of a topic? other than bts/armys, honestly there isn’t much to blacklist. and if we blacklisted, it would probably consist of bts/army every time and obviously that isn’t fair since some people have new and original opinions to bring. but if we do notice a surplus, we will definitely try this out! =)
