dashi dorawa

So… I’m finally doing one of these. Somewhere last week (or the week before?) I reached 200 followers, so I thought I’d do a “follow forever” post as it is custom in the tumblr scene and send out my appreciation to the people I follow.

❤ = lovely people I know / have talked to, who I love very much
★ = blogs i have followed for a looong time, which i consider my role models

Jongdae isn’t much. He’s an average university student, trying to keep up, failing, and getting back up. Together with his three friends he tries to make the best of it. They sing, every saturday night, at the cafe where he works. The cafe of the ice skating rink. The ice skating rink where he used to skate when he was younger. The ice skating rink where you skate. You and your twin brother Jongin. World renowned figure skating couple, young twins, children of three time olympic champions. It’s in your genes they say, and in your brother’s. The way you seamlessly glide over the ice together, and how he steadily catches you every single time. The two of you are on your way to the olympics yourself, following in the footsteps of your parents. And you are a university student yourself, part time. Every free evening you can spare you come to the cafe after practice to study, and you always order green tea. There is graciousness in your every move, strength in your every step. A true figure skater. 
No, compared to you, he isn’t much.


He watched you on the screen in the cafe, meanwhile trying not to let the drinks drop from his tray. It was busy, people from all over town came over to watch you and Jongin in the pre-rounds to the olympics. But Jongdae saw something nobody else saw. 
The lack of spark in your eye, the small wavers in your hand, the slight dip of your ankle as you did the triple axle. You weren’t on your best game, and he saw it in your every move. Your mind wasn’t there. It was painful to watch, and he tried not to, because like this you might not make it there. Soon you would be flying through the air in the last throw jump, and land to glide to the end pose. 
He couldn’t watch and turned his head away from the screen, putting the drinks of the guests table. 
Suddenly everyone gasped, and when he looked back at the screen, there was blood everywhere.

Please do another Haikyuu Idols au but this time with all the setters 🙏

Haikyuu Setters Idol!AU

I’m sorry it took so long. I didn’t know that the setters would give me difficulty imagining them as an idol group. (Also because you said all… OTL.) BUT HERE IT IS!!!! ( I included members who are setters but haven’t been animated yet… so I guess this contains spoilers?)

Disclaimer: Once again, my references are from K-pop, than J-pop, since I know more about that. Concepts and songs were by groups I am familiar with. If the captain’s one had been done while I was crying about Boys24, this one is brought to you by PD101S2.

Note: No Oikawa or Moniwa. They’re over here with the other captains and other random things


The Group in General

-       What can I say, this group is just full of pretty people. ALL ULZZANGS I TELL YOU!

-       This group also consists of mostly people who project quiet, chic, and sassy image and they have been called the ‘Flower Boy-dols’, ‘Model-dols’, ‘Sassy-dols’ and all other variants that people can think off just to emphasize how beautiful (and sassy) they are.

-       A lot of buzz had already surrounded this group even before their debut, because some of them have experienced fame in different forms. Fangirls are easily baited. One look at the boys and they never looked back.

-       However, this was kind of a double edged sword, because most people thought that they’re all just pretty faces with no actual talent to back them up. (Haters do say the meanest things. They are most DEFINITELY WRONG of course.)

-       But that was all behind them now. Their fanbase is as strong as ever and they’re gaining more as they promote.

-       So like, I kind of visualize that their company introduced the members of the group by dropping little hints/’facts’ about the member all throughout the day, and will end with that member’s teaser video and picture that details his profile.

-       Then surprise, surprise! After that short teaser video, they actually have a short intro video, recorded with V-Live.

-       Imagine being a fangirl and doing this for 10 days, every other day, just to die and resurrect again for the rest of the members.

-       Then they update with the album highlights, and MV teasers up until their official debut.

-       When the MV had been released, and all of them have been introduced, they do a group v-live to formally introduce themselves as a group, inviting the support and love of the people.


The Members

Semi Eita – Eita is the Leader of the group. He also serves as the lead dancer and is mostly responsible for overlooking the member’s activities. Eita started his career as back up dancer to some solo female artists, but he didn’t hesitate to join the agency when they recruited him. He’s the kind of leader that doesn’t really step into the spotlight and is just content with letting the other member’s do their thing but knows when to put his foot down. Always thanks fans for their gifts and for watching their live performances.

He’s like EXO’s Suho mixed with Ikon’s Junhoe. (IDK why…)

Sugawara Koushi – Koushi is the actual eldest of the group and serves as the lead vocalist as well as the Face of the Group. Started as an ulzzang with an already good amount of followers, and he has the largest fanbase among all of them because of this. He was discovered when he heeded the request of a fan to sing even just a short line of a song. But since he likes to go the extra mile, he also played the guitar. Though he may look innocent, fans are well aware of how much sass this boy possess, apparent with his responses to fan questions over twitter and during fan meetings.

EXO’s Luhan is who comes to mind for idol!Suga

Echigo Sakae – Echigo completes the hyung line. He is the main vocals of the group because of his smooth RnB vibes. Echigo competed in a singing contest organized by the agency and he won 2nd place over all, but it was enough to secure him a spot as a trainee. He’s a man of few words, but do not mistake his quietness for he is a certified deadpan snarker, to his members as well as the fans. He also likes to tease the ‘middle children’ line, especially when their maknae does evil things to them.

Echigo is based off of MBLAQ’s G.O, mixed with Big Bang’s Taeyang.

Akaashi Keiji – Keiji is the main dancer of the group. Develops their group’s choreography with Shigeru, with Semi occasionally lending a hand. Has quite a following, especially when he made waves as the ‘boy who really danced well’ in one of the biggest dance studios dance class video. It took a while for agency reps to scout him since he doesn’t really want to become an idol and was content in dancing, but when he assisted one of the dance instructor for another idol group’s choreo, somehow changed his mind. The long suffering responsible brother, despite being the actual youngest in the middle children line.

I would liken Keiji to EXO’s Kai.

Kozume Kenma – Kenma is the shy and young, lauded by fans as ‘genius producer-dol’ of the group. He’s very skilled in song writing and composing, and most of the group’s songs are produced by him, with members lending their hand in the lyrics. Sometimes, it’s the other way around. The members collaborate with writing the lyrics, then Kenma makes a song out of it. Mostly works with a piano, but asks for Suga’s help for guitars and Shirabu’s help when it comes to percussions. If he had the choice, he would just stay inside the studio and make songs, but such is not the case, so he serves as a sub-vocal (only because he doesn’t want to be in the center of performances as much). He’s close to Keiji because he’s the only one who’s is warm but quiet among his same age peer.

The best reference I have for Kenma is EXO’s D.O

Yahaba Shigeru – Shigeru acts as the group’s dancer and their unofficial variety representative. Before this though, he was thought to be the second Koushi, because he exudes the soft grace, that isn’t far behind his hyung. All this was shattered when they guested at a variety show and became a complete fountain of laughter, because of his witty comments and clever comeback lines. Often ‘butt’s heads’ with Shirabu and created the Wise Guy to Shirabu’s Straight Man. And they have created memes fans call the “Shi-Shi’s” because of this. He is also game with cross-dressing, since he admits that its part of his charm.

SHINee’s KEY is my reference for Shigeru.

Shirabu Kenjiro – Shirabu comes from a family of actors, and was actually a child actor before he made the decision to train and become an idol instead, in his desire to create a name for his own. It wasn’t unexpected for him to be in the spotlight with the rest of his family, but people mostly expected him to follow his parents’ and brother’s footsteps. But since his history with acting is not forgotten, he’s often tapped to act in productions but he’s only accepted minor roles, since he wants to focus more on his idol activities. He blends in well with the group and lends his support as vocals.

Think of Infinite’s L, as the image he projects, but he actually has BTOB’s Sungjae’s playfulness in him.

Miya Atsumu – Miya is the main rapper of the group and the one that completes the middle children line. Has a love-hate relationship with fans because of his resting bitch face that he uses to tease them with. But his performance on stage is something they all love about him. Has a twin brother, who is his complete opposite and wants to be far away from the spotlight as possible. Ever since the fans learned about this, and how mature his brother is, they found a way to tease him back and called them “The Prince and Pauper”, with Atsumu being the pauper, much to his annoyance.

I think the resting bitch face is a clue enough that EXO’s Kris is my reference for Atsumu.

Koganegawa Kanji – Kogane serves as the second rapper of the group and is actually the older of the two members of the maknae line. He is the tallest among the group, earning him the nickname ‘Super-Sized Maknae’. He’s also painfully new in the idol industry, but his enthusiasm and willingness to learn, as well as his hyung’s support, helped him become more confident in his skills, as well as his presence in the group. Another variety representative, because of his naivety and simple mindedness. Considered a 4D member by the fans, but despite this, they all find him lovable because of his energy and determination.

Kogane reminds me of MBLAQ’s Mir.

Kageyama Tobio – Tobio is the other half of the maknae line, and is the actual maknae of the whole group. But fans often mistake Kogane to be this, because Tobio is often too serious, and doesn’t display maknae tendencies. Absolutely hates doing aegyo and claims that he doesn’t know how. Its cringe worthy whenever he tries (and he tries really hard), but when he’s not thinking about it though, it shows. Fans especially finds his squinting-pouty face adorable. The official visual of the group, and not to be confused with Koushi’s Face of the Group. They’re both considered visuals, but with different image/projection (Koushi is the warm to Tobio’s cold). He’s a dedicated all-rounder, although he usually plays more vocal parts.

Tobio’s reference is Nu’est’s Minhyun (and I swoon)


Concept/s and Songs

-       This group started out safely enough with songs that are influenced by jazz, like B.A.P’s Coffee Shop and Where are You, What are You Doing.

-       Then they delved into the more ‘pop’ side, with concepts centered-around chic style and synchronized dance. Like Infinite’s Dashi Dorawa; BEAST’s Fiction; EXO’s Call Me Baby.

-       The song that I seriously think fits them the most is C-Clown’s Shaking Heart. I don’t know why but it just does.

-       Other songs: Winner’s Really Really; VIXX’s Error; Super Junior’s Devil.

-       Of course, they couldn’t escape doing cute songs like SHINee’s Replay and Hello; Got7’s A; Astro’s Breathless; Seventeen’s Mansae; lighthearted songs like iKon’s #WYD; Super Junior’s No Other and Why I Like You

-       For feel fest songs they have: BTS’ Spring Day; Boys24’s Starlight; Infinite’s Paradise; Nu’est’s Hello and Good Bye Bye; Winner’s Fool; and VIXX’s Only You.

-       Yeah… I guess that sums it up. Also note that they’ve done plenty of share of covering girl group songs. Shigeru for some reasons were able to rope most of the group, especially Suga. Once Suga says they do it, they do it. They can’t refuse. It will be their end.

I guess this is it?

GOODBYE 2016, HELLO 2017!!!

It’s been a rough 2016 for everyone, but for me personally, this was also the year that fully introduced me to k-pop, and I can’t be more grateful for that! I’ve made so many good friends, and have found so much happiness that I’ve lost for a while. Thank you all for making my 2016 a little bit better, and I hope all of our 2017′s are much much better! :)

Everyone mentioned here is absolutely wonderful and if you aren’t already following them, please do because they are amazing :D

(yes this is a repeat from my main blog @some-fantastic-URL-name but sh thats okay i must recognize you all twice)

anonymous asked:

Please explain to me this band "infinite"

No I did not just spend the whole day thinking on how to reply to this question

Turn out asking me this question is the same as asking me to make an essay. So if you’re seriously asking, beware of the long explanation (it’s 2358 words…) and this is probably not what you asked for…also beware of the english.

And also please note that most of these are my personal opinions on them, even though I’m trying to be objective

Basically, Infinite is a boy band from Korea. It was the first boy band from Woollim Entertainment, so the boy band was kind of experimental for them. They debuted on 2010 with Comeback Again. Since their company is very small on that time, they have to work their way up. They finally able to succeed after their first win with song “Be Mine”, after that they finally started to get really famous. To sum up their success: this used to be their dorm, but now they live in here. (I think that’s newest one, they moved dorm several times). If they didn’t win anything for Be Mine, they’re probably have been disbanded by the company.

They were famous for having very clean and synchronized dance/choreography. They are trying to not be as synchronized as before, but it’s like being synchronized with each other is already embedded in their bloods. Their music is also known for having a distinct sound and quite different from usual kpop music.If you like 80s music, it’s possible that you will like Infinite’s music. Honestly their music is not the kind who can appeal to everyone.

They are really good at performing, they almost always performing live even though they have a hard choreography, and they excel at it. Every single of them has their own talents. Even the maknae line, who people like to bash for having no talents (which is untrue), are really good.

Infinite’s personality as a whole is famous hardworking and well-mannered. They have been praised by staffs and seniors for those mannerisms. They’re close to each other, to the point the fans can get a daily dose of adorableness and skinship. Occasionally doing ‘dumb’ things, which is why I called them seven idiots. Lovingly, of course. Their personality is not always like what they are shown on TV, but we still can get a lot of glimpse of their personality from TV.

Recommended Songs + MV Performances (…okay, more like favorites of mine): Dashi DorawaBefore The DawnTic TocShotCan U SmileThe ChaserParadiseDestinyHysterieInceptionBackSonagi. If you have time you should listen to all their songs because almost all of them are good.

If you want to get to know their dynamic as a group on screen and their personality, I recommend watching these variety shows: Sesame PlayerBirth of A FamilyRanking KingThis is Infinite, also Weekly Idols

Infinite’s fans are called inspirit. To be an inspirit, you have to get used to those comments:

  • “Infinite songs are always sound the same.”
  • The maknae line are useless and don’t have any talents.
  • (insert people bringing up one of their 'scandals’, the scandals that usually has been resolved unlike a lot of scandals, and a lot of them are exaggerated)
  • That they get everything thanks to SM and that they don’t work hard
  • That they flop

Oh and also have to get ready for mistreatment from some broadcasting stations…

You also can read some of their interviews to get a glimpse of their personality off screen, most of the times they gave an insightful answers to the most basic questions: onetwo

So now for the members…
