I’ve just watched the new episodes of MIR and really I don’t understand how far people can be from understanding this freaking story and these characters. People who say he just tried to kill himself just because people were talking about him - wrong. People who say his parents need to intervene - WRONG. People who say framebook represent what a relationship should not be are wrong across the board and honestly if you can’t stand a pairing enough to honestly be open to their story you probably shouldn’t speak on it.
Book does NOT try to kill himself just because his peers are talking about him. His peers are a problem, yes but they are the root of the problem they’re a constant reminder of the root. His parents don’t need to intervene…they need to go get help and educate themselves on how they should treat and support their fucking child. They’re pushing him towards this. They are the biggest part of his problem. Understand that the first time his this happened his parents did not protect him, they didn’t seek the person who invaded his privacy. No they kicked him out into his own place, put him in a new school and did their best to ignore him with the lone threat of not shaming them any further. He he tried to do just that, bury in on himself, just focusing on his studies, not making any friends, not being exciting at all (which led to his gf finding him boring and cheating on him and mistreating him). Then he met Frame - a very excitable, spontaneous, relentless guy who for some reason found himself wanting to take care of Book. Both of these characters are damaged individuals though. And those issues are rooted in mistrust. And those trust issues can cause them to shut down or fall back on prior safety points.
But Frame was not amongst those who was racking Books anxiety high - they flashed to all those people during his mini panic attack. In fact Frame has been the only filter between those things. It’s not Frame that sends Book spiraling into a suicide attempt - it’s the phone call from his parents. His relationship with his parents is toxic. These are two people who stood in front of him and argued about who should have to deal with him - after they threatened to cut all ties. We saw in season 1 just how much he was trying to communicate with his parents and fix that relationship and please them - but it never works. He lives in a constant state of never being good enough. The reason he does in fact take gossip and his peers bullying so seriously is because it’s a persistent reminder of being a disappoint, of failing, of being shameful while doing something shameful (not only having sex but sex with another male). We had markers of just how dangerous the mentality his parents had pushed upon him was. I mean this is the same boy who would forget to eat because he was so focused on being bookish and doing well in school. His parents desires literally took too shelf over his own physical needs.
I think Frame’s hard lesson from this is gonna be the fact that while his biggest joy is taking care of Book - he can’t always protect him def when the pain is internal and the danger is from Book himself. It’s def gonna be interesting to see where they go from here. The writers have always used FrameBook for their more serious topics which is why I love and prefer them because of the emotional reality of how our own internalized shit effects us outwardly and how our interactions with previous people/relationships hind and influence or interactions with other people afterwards. Some people aren’t here for the angst but I’m pleased my ship is the serious one that’s presenting love and baggage and it’s intertwine.
First of all, with J Tunes throwing away all the trophies they ever won had me very very suspicious as to why they did this. In addition, to J Tunes Camp not even caring about the guys. Like a fan found their trophies at a flea market. Really JTC? Really now ? The trophies they worked hard on and won to just be thrown away is straight up BS.
Second, when MADTOWN went to GNI Entertainment this made me even more suspicious like why ?? Because the only groups at J Tunes Camp were Madtown and MBLAQ(on hiatus)
Then, I went on Wikipedia (which isn’t the best reliable I know) and to confirm the only remaining group since Madtown left is MBLAQ. TWO X been gone to another company and I just thought what is J Tunes Camp doing ??
Now G.O says J. Tunes does not exist any more. Soo they went bankrupt? And him, Seungho, and Mir will still be MBLAQ hopefully …
No words can explain how sad I feel because MBLAQ literally had me in tears from laughing so hard and always had me hyped and swooning over their songs and when they felt a great sense of accomplishment. JTC messed up big time with all of their groups. I’m glad TWO X and Madtown got out while they can. Just so hurt that MBLAQ was basically neglected & then all their hard work is gone … just does not matter to JTC any more.
And I do not know if this is true and I really need a video or some legit + creditable news source but Bi Rain is planning or wants to make another boy group ? Maybe by the end of 2018 this will happen. I don’t know if this is true but .. I just do not know how I feel about this. To be honest I’m more sad + confused than happy if he really wants to do this.
But overall, MBLAQ still has my heart through and through. They deserve better.
