okay, so miss @cheollies pushed me to do it so i guess i’m doing it. normally, i don’t have the patience to put so much energy on an idol, but i have nothing to do, so why not.
let’s start on his talent, since he is an idol.
his soft toned voice. it kind of the sounds like clouds. or like when you pit your head down onto a puffy pillow~ in the bridge on habit, his voice sounded so pillowy and pretty. then he projected and it just has this lovely honey-like rasp to hit, but god it still runs smooth.i went all silent and i couldn’t bring myself to speak for another whole 20 seconds because i was just so mesmerised by his voice?
his dancing and how smooth and agile his movements are? he’s really light on his feet it’s really nice to watch his dance style.
ok it fascinates me how graceful and wow his hips move in a way that adds some femininity to his dancing, but like in a nice way.
With Me.. just that whole performance was great. i’m getting flashbacks of the thing he did with his arm and my pure soul is being tainted
his RAPPING. IT SOUNDS SO GOOD W HIS SOFT TONED VOICE
he’s the cold artist. there ain’t no other one, he’s thE cOlD aRtIsT – it’s Iconic™
his music producing and lyrics wow. he knows how to make a bop~
of course, talent has less affect without showmanship
following from his voice, the passion which he sings with in ballads
the way he uses the mic stand/staff. he grips it in different ways and in different places to show portray the mood and his passion. it changes a lot in each song
the way his face scronches (like one side of his face squishes with chARISMA),
the way his jaw would clench,
the way his hand would sway,
the way his head would lower and
the way he looks at the audience when he gets into a song or feels the beat of the music.
his stage presence is subtle in a group, but PANG! he OWNS the stage when he’s up there on his own
miscellaneous cute shit
HIS SQUEEZY EYES LAUGH AND SMILE. HE LITERALLY BECOMES 😆
his natural aegyo
the way he denies his natural aegyo
his cringeworthy, disgustingly endearing, saccharine aegyo. (cue: oppaya)

not to be scatterbrained, but jihoon said he doesn’t need words to describe how close he and cheol are. i love friendship?????
his dying red panda screech in the karaoke vlive when they sang flying duck (not to be off topic, but somehow, seungkwan still sounded perfect and i didn’t know that wonwoo’s voice . was capable of making those noISES)

how forced that boyfriend video call on channel+ was actually kinda cute

his friendship with ailee (i watch too many jihoon and ailee interaction compilations)
him singing other members’ parts or random songs at the background of videos like Lay Me Down by Sam Smith in one of their mv making videos for their Seasons Greetings, i think it is (in his ultimate manspread, but we don’t talk about that here. this is reasons to LOVE him) and other stuffs like in the chirstmas super junior Show Me Your Love cover~~
miscellaneous attractive shit
that look ^
his ping pong skills and the amount of pride he has of it?
he’s got good shoulders. like really good, broad shoulders
he’s also got very defined features, even if it’s often not captured on camera and gOd the nooks and dips of his structure is Good Shit
his good hands. his pretty pretty piano hands.. ; 3; his fingers are so nicely structured and boney but in a pleasant way
his skin is so perfect. i swear, throughout his entire career as an idol, he has had one breakout and that was just a single pimple. LEAK YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE, LEE JIHOON.
that picture where it looked like he only shaved his thighs,,
ok but the way he holds himself up is like,, very masculine. how do i even describe it? like, aura. composure? idk but it’s cool and i like it
HE’S SO SMOOTH WITH CARATS LIKE “we shall meet tonight in your dreams”
NOT TO MENTION WHEN HE GAVE A CARAT HIS HOME ADDRESS AND HE WAS LIKE “why does it matter?” *insert fire emojis*
the time he went off on a rude fan. he was explaining something to her and she had the audacity to slap him away and i was like b i t c h e x c u s e m e :)
I UNDERSTAND A LOT OF GUITARIST DO THIS BUT I REALLY HAD A CARDIAC ANEURYSM OVER HIM MUTING THE TOP FEW STRING HE’S NOT USING WHEN IN HIS YOU AND I COVER
78. his general hand skills? have you see the way he spins his mic and pens? that’s secksi
HIS RAP LINE ON FRONTING?
his super high harmonies (like the one in Because of You where he did that subtle super high harmonies on top of seokmin’s strong one);
the way he squeezes his eyes shut;
the way he jerks his body
and the way he bends down w his body turned one side when he belts.
again,, the way he handles his mic staff. as lovely and passionate it is, it is also v secksi
his fuCKING LEGS are superior to the ones of a model
remember his tank top in crazy in love dance practise? me too.
he look great w smokey eye make up
ok when he got the whisper challenge right in caratland a few times after hearing seokmin’s wrong message was pretty hot
his voice sounded really nice yelling
the way he shaded a fansite after she was exposed for being mean to other fans
he’s really smart and witty and observant and that’s hot
ok he did this dance in one of the shining diamond concerts in australia where he danced to careless whisper and i was ready for the ground underneath me to just crack and quake open to welcome me to hell that was a good video eyes emoji eyes emoji -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xTD9Dkzsn8 (you’re welcome)
the couple in front of me just spilled their bottle of water and i’m trying so hard not to laugh why am i like this send help i need to get all sad and serious right nOW so let’s move on to deep shit
his diligence and how he persevered through debut until now with the burden of writing seventeen’s songs. he cried on camera back then and to this day, it still breaks my heart and fills it with admiration until this day. plus, he’s often seen at the back of seventeen videos practising when they’re in their practise rooms. e.g. boom boom (santa ver.)
the way he talks with his hands and stutters a lot really shows how carefully he chooses his words to articulate exactly what he means and wants to express
how much he values honesty in his lyrics and the way he expresses his honesty through creative personas in songs. i heard that downpour (소나기) is an abbreviation for “memories” and don’t listen in secret ?? wow. smile flower? WOW
how comfortable he is with the members warms my heart. he’s so awkward on external variety shows with a host he’s not too familiar with, but when he’s with the other members with the camera, he’s so much more playful and seemingly in his comfort zone and it just warms me how much he loves and cares for them. i mean, he recently started to open up more in variety shows and seeing him growing more comfortable in that aspect of his job also fills me with joy. what he creates in his job makes me so happy, so seeing him grow into his job is just nice to see, y’know? if you watch videos from star show 360 vs yang and nam show, you’ll feel happy for him too and that’s a good reason to love him, i feel.
when he cried in caratland when they were all singing smile flower. idk it was just beautiful. the way he started crying in the second chorus then he sang his own line before the talking part and the he really really cried. it just got me thinking how much they must have been through especially through the treatment of them from the pledis staff. they weren’t very nice
simple could go with lyrics, but i want to talk about it separately.
the song was built around my “in this world, i’m not even worth dust” which he talked about in Orgel Live i was crying watching that i love the lyrics,, he felt small looking at stars. we’re all insignificant and nothing is real in a literal sense, but not depressing a depressing way. so trying to see things in a more simple light and holding ones and things close as priorities and that being the source of happiness unlike the whole meritocratic preached by adults and everyone around us. fortune and success is often based on luck. but our values aren’t , so the idea of focusing on those while having enough to stay alive is just so nice and that’s just one song. i don’t think i should talk about anymore lyrics apart from this one, or this list will never end
the way he said that carats are his confidence instead of some fanservicey kinda thing in the Diamond VCR. it’s nice bc honestly, we, as fans, can’t solve their problems. well, maybe financial problems, but we can’t make stress go away, so i just kind of appreciated the honest answer and the idea of acting as this source of positivity about himself. yes, lee jihoon, you’re a great, talented dude who we all appreciate and i’m glad he feels appreciated and acknowledges and appreciates our appreciation and it’s just nice to have this realistic side of things.
I’m a fan of the Satanic Temple because they perform “pink masses” where they go around the country and turn the formerly heterosexual spirits of their dead enemies gay, which I find delightful. They did that to Fred Phelps’ mother.
