rap monster is constantly mocked and looked down upon for being an idol, but he’s actually one of the few k-artists that are recognized by american media and american hip hop artists.
like he was the only korean artist to be featured on spin’s “50 best hip hop albums of all time”, he collaborated with Krizz Kaliko and Warren G, and now he’s recognized by Wale.
You don’t really see that kind of thing happening with most k-hip hop artists. What makes it even more phenomenal is that rap monster wasn’t even born in America or had any experience living in America. He self-taught himself english and he was able to get to that point through his hard work.
Even Suga was recognized on Tidal’s Rising, which is still more than what a lot of k-hip hop artists get.
so my main concern for ep 12 is how on earth kubo sensei is going to put THE conversation, all six long programs, the medal ceremony, press conference, banquet pole dancing, yurio and otabek riding the bike into the sunset, THE wedding, drunken dancing at the reception, phitchit’s selfie spree, some snipets from the wedding night plus an extended 1-hour long version of history maker into one 20 and something minute episode? like you see the problem right?
(On Claire Temple stealing the show) What with good reason, my god…I think Rosario has a lot to do with it. You can feel her heart in her work. I think also the character—she’s a strong woman, she helps the people she cares about. – Deborah Ann Woll
She’s got it all, it’s equal parts the character as the actor. She’s an incredibly talented actor. She just exudes coolness, you know? She’s cool, she’s sweet. I just think she’s awesome and she’s highly, highly capable. I get it, I fell in love with her, yeah. – Jon Bernthal
She’s got such an amazing presence and she’s such a wonderful person and actor. But I think also Claire Temple was written beautifully. I think a lot of people, in the same way that Matt—he could open up to her in a way he hasn’t to anyone else. I think she probably made the audience feel the same way as well. – Charlie Cox
That’s funny, cause when I see Victor two words also come to mind: Clothes. Off.
Wait a minute, I recognize that ass!
But not those titties though.
Also, why is Chris wearing sunglasses at night? Is he supposed to be in disguise? Is he hiding Wesker-esque eyes or something?
Ya know what? I’m gonna ship it. Cause that’s some blatant damn flirting right there.
Oh Chris, I’ve missed you, and your sexy ass.
No one man should have all that power smug
Would that be considered an “ugly word”? Also, I am so disappointed that Yakov’s ex didn’t come and grab Yurio by the cheek.
I want to see JJ’s angels vs Yurio’s angels, West Side Story style
I am not surprised that his girlfriend looks like a genderbent version of him.
I don’t care if it works or not, my headcanon is that these two get back together and adopt Yurio and become his real parents.
Hahaha! He doesn’t even remember who he is!
Poor Crispy he looks so sad, like he’s lost all hope. Menawhile, Yurio is rocking that 5 head.
This is the face of man who is in love.
He looks so peaceful, like a little angel.
Okay, hol’ up.
Who is taking the picture?
Where did the other pair of sunglasses come from?
Why are they wearing sunglasses on at night?
So many unanswered questions!
Be careful what you wish for Yuuri.
Also, I ship this. I ship the three of them. If they haven’t had sex together already they will someday. It’s my headcanon.
“Come with me if you want to live, Yurio”
We a shoujo now? Cause it looks like we a shoujo now.
A better love story than Twilight
(wtf I love this ship now)
Don’t listen to him Yuuri, there is nothing wrong with your cute little suit and tie.
Please let the last episode be about the entire cast throwing Victor a birthday party. Please. Please. Please. Please x100000 Kubo!
Nothing says “thank you” like becoming committed to each other for life.
This is the face of the happiest man in the world.
From bike ride to date. We really are in a shoujo.
BACKSTORY INCOMING! BACKSTORY INCOMING!
Sooo it’s like when the main character wakes up on an island with amnesia only to find out that he was the one responsible for everything in the end. Except in this case the amnesia dude dry humped another dude, made him fall in love with him, asked him to be his coach, and then promptly forgot the whole thing.
Kind makes the whole “Viktor is evil because he forgot to make Yurio’s choreography” pale in comparison, huh?
Of course Chris would be the first to notice.
Everyone is so happy…but what the hell happened to your eyes Mr. Mustache Man? Did the burning intensity of true love burn your eyes out?
Chris’s face is freaking adorable in this scene. Ad-or-able. Oh and Yurio’s upset/shocked, what a surprise.
It’s like the saying “You gets no love unless you wear a glove”, except in this case the glove is a gold medal.
“See that guy with the embarrassed look on his face? That’s me. Somehow I just ended up engaged to my coach and now everyone knows. How did that happen? Well, I guess you’ll just have to stick around and find out.”
Has he been following them around this whole time? Cause I bet you he’s been following them around this whole time. #thatsJJstyle
Aaand nobody gives a shit. Better luck next time JJ!
Another peaceful day, just relaxing, ‘miring that sweet engagement ring.
Oh…look, it’s Yurio, and he’s being a shit. What. A. Surprise.
‘I could toss his little ass into the ocean and no one would ever suspect a thing.’
Oh my god, we fucking get it, you’re jealous that Viktor has joined Yuuri’s reindeer games. Get over it. Go play with Otabek’s bike or something and leave the adults alone.
To anyone who still has doubts, just look at that face. Look at the faces he’s been making this whole episode.
The only way this could be not canon gay is if one of them literally pulls a girlfriend out of their asses.
Poor Salad, no love for you.
I ship Emil with CrispySalad.
So since Yuuri completely forgot this that makes him worse than Satan right?
Why is there a pole there?
Why is no one stopping this?
How the hell is Yuuri able to do such advanced stripping techniques? Is stripping classes part of skate training? Is that how Yuuri earned money when he was in Detroit?
No, seriously, how? How is he able to do this? Dear god just how strong is Yuuri?
Does this always happen at these banquet things? Did Chris and Yuuri sleep together after this? Why did no one tell Yuuri about this until now? Was it like Fight Club? What happens at the banquet stays in the banquet?
Strippers on Poles anime when????
In case you didn’t notice, Yuuri was the shitty playboy in the story all along.
