imo, she’s the type of girl to put her all into a relationship. so much so that she may loose herself :/ she wants nothing more than to make her s/o happy so if that person is toxic and a bad influence, she will stay with them out of love and make up excuses for all their bad actions. I hope you genuinely love and care for Sulli. she deserves someone who can appreciate her warm heart and the effort she will put into the relationship
If you’re smaller than her, she’ll love hugging you and resting her chin on your head. With you wrapped in her arms, it makes her feel like she can protect you from the evils of the world. From the closeness, you get to smell her floral perfume and sweet shampoo. She always smells good so those hugs are so relaxing. You find it hard to fall asleep unless you’re in her arms.
Although if you’re taller than her, she’ll be impressed. Taller girls don’t usually get to feel smol and fluffy standing next to someone. So having a tall s/o be able to rest their chin on her head makes her heart flutter.
Loves to cook for you. Would gladly spend hours in the kitchen after a difficult schedule, making you your favourite things to eat. She loves watching you eat happily and feel nourished.
As someone so friendly and warm, she makes friends wherever she goes. And her beauty, coupled with her personality, could make you jealous as she unwittingly has people falling for her left, right and centre. There’s nothing to worry about though. Sulli is fully committed and nothing will ever change that. Regardless of what rumours the media spreads or what that person wanting her attention offers her, she would still pick you in a heartbeat.
Often prefers to wear your clothes, particularly anything baggy. Your scent relaxes her and she feels so loved in your comfy, baggy clothes. She’d much rather those than tight, restrictive dresses and heels. Oh and if you bring her ice cream then even better. She’ll know it’s true love ;D
You like rewatching the dramas she’s appeared in to tease her. Or taking pics of her advertisements on billboards or shop windows to send to her like ‘Wow, this woman looks so familiar. Wonder if she’s single? ;)’
Her smile honestly saves lives. Whenever you’re down or have had a bad day, her bright personality and beautiful smile always pick you back up. Sulli can’t stand to see you frown so she tries to always keep you happy. Which isn’t possible, there will be days when you’re down and she stupidly blames herself :/ She feels like a bad gf those days so you need to reassure her that’s she wonderful. That even her pure smile can’t make all the bad things in the world go away.
Sulli is such a warm, caring gf. She always puts you first, even times when she shouldn’t (like if she’s sick). She does this because you mean the whole world to her. She may seem like a clingy gf but that’s only out of concern, as she’s always checking up on you. She remembers everything you tell her, even something silly like running out of lip balm. And she would damn well trek through rain and snow to get one for you. That’s the type of woman she is.
You come first, always. This is why she can sometimes loose herself in a relationship. You need to remind her to think of herself sometimes. This mutual love and care is what makes the love last. Nothing in the world could break this love apart.
Re: Hidden Talents fic. Gotta love fluff on a Monday to help get you through the week :) also why do I feel like the only song Kurt knows how to play is Wonderwall? KL
First of all, anon, thanks for the sweet message. And second, yes! This song is perfect and you juts got yourself a continuation of the fic! It works time-wise too because Kurt would have been around 15 when it came out, just in time for teenaged Kurt to feel he needs to impress the girls with some music!
Hidden Talents (Part 2)
They went straight to his place after work, stopping at the store to buy supplies for dinner. They were waling down one of the aisles, him pushing the cart, when she asked, again, “so you’re telling me you still have the guitar you had when you were a kid?”
“Yeah,” he told her, “why wouldn’t I?”
She shrugged, “I don’t know,” she said, “it just doesn’t seem something you would do.”
“You mean hang on to something from my past and refuse to let go?” he joked, turning to her with a smile, “obviously you haven’t met me yet.”
“Bad news- we accidentally locked ourselves out of the cabin. Good news- we didn’t have to wait around for a locksmith. Bad news- the campers found it very interesting that I know how to pick locks and tried to unlock my Tragic Backstory- well, most of them, Nikki just started a four hour long campaign to get me to teach her- anyway, I was too embarrassed to admit that the reason I learned was because at thirteen, I figured that was the kind of skill that would impress cute girls. Good news- a cute girl saw me do it. Bad news- it was Gwen, and since she’s already seen me fall out of several trees, cry because I saw a fawn that was just too damn small, and knows that I can ride a unicycle, she’ll never think I’m cool no matter what I do. It’s too late. She knows.”
-David, who has had a very long day, has been hiding from Nikki for the past four hours, and has long ago resigned himself to the fact that Gwen has seen far, far too much to ever think he’s cool.
I don’t do ‘Cold Readings’ anymore. I don’t tell fortunes. I don’t read tea leaves.
And I do not do contact ‘the other side’.
Look, don’t judge me alright? It was an easy gig. I mean, the first time I did it, it was a joke. I did it just to impress a girl. You’ve been there right? It was something I’d read about online and I thought I’d give it a go.
I was wondering recently why Yuri on Ice seemed to be so different and fresh to me and why so many people get so emotionally engaged with it. There is definitely a nice animation and great characters and representation and such a beautiful love story but I felt like there was something in the narration layer that I couldn’t name until I compared yoi storyline to the most common schemes.
When you look at most of the pop cultural stories, especially those where main plot focuses on sport, you’ll see that there is that one scheme they all follow - you have a hero who has talent but lacks something (like a good mentor or hard work or confidence), he finds a motivation to win (it may be anything from parent’s death to wish to impress a girl) and he finds a dedicated coach, he trains, he loses, he learns something about himself, he wins, he gets an award. This is the basic way of constructing such stories and it’s catchy because we all want to believe that we are able to fight our weaknesses and win by ourselves. You may modify this scheme to a large extent but the main core will always be a single hero who needs to grow in order to win and actually I think that this scheme is present in Yuri on Ice but in Yurio’s not Yuuri’s story. Yurio has talent, lacks hard work and needs to learn something about himself, his skate-off with Yuuri gives him a motivation to win, he trains hard, he loses, he grows, he wins. This doesn’t make his story or his character less interesting but I wanted to give you an example of what am I talking about so I could compare it to Yuuri’s story.
So now, where is Yuuri’s plot different you could say. Well, in a way you could find all those elements in Yuuri’s story too but his development is where it all turns to be innovative. You see in the basic scheme the hero needs to learn to win by himself while Yuuri has got to that point a long time ago. He had all of that: his motivation, his hard work, most of his abilities, his own strength before he met Victor. He was fighting by himself for five years before and even if his anxiety makes him look like a weak loser it is obvious he is already beyond that “learning about myself” phase. Even this confidence Victor helps him to find he already had just hidden. Yuuri knows his emotions and some of his strengths and most of the weak points himself and either he wins or loses those minor competitions it doesn’t change him too deeply. But what Victor gives him is the belief that he doesn’t have to fight by himself anymore. Not in a “you can learn from other people” or “teamwork is important” kind of way (’cause they are still used in most of the stories) but in acknowledging that you may become better if you let someone close to you (this lesson applies to Victor to btw but he is not the main hero so I’ll skip this part).
I won’t say this reverses the scheme completely as this is still some kind of personal development that helps to win (though the fact that Yuuri does not finally win is interesting by itself) but it definitely changes the subtext of the whole story. We like stories about heroes fighting by themselves because we often struggle with our problems alone and we need to believe me can do it. But Yuri on Ice gives us the idea that thought you are strong enough to fight maybe you don’t have to fight alone at all. I guess this is why it has such a great emotional impact because in a world that tells you all the time that it’s only for you to win the story of someone who still needed help even if he already was strong and beautiful is really hopeful, positive and in a way more realistic then the basic “hero can only win by himself” scheme.
There is also the whole layer of how Victor doesn’t fit to the standard portrayal of a mentor figure but I think this is quite easy to spot and maybe let’s not make this longer than it has to be but the last quick reflection I had is that the most common way of portraying romantic relationships in the sports stories is either when the hero needs to sacrifice his relationship in order to focus (which is the trope I personally hate) or when he wins the attention of his love interest by winning the final competition (so the love is somehow a reward then). What is great in Yuuri and Victor’s relationship is how Yuuri doesn’t have to win to prove his worth to Victor. Almost from the beginning, Victor knows Yuuri’s flaws and he falls for him anyway. So Yuuri is not only given support that helps him to become better but also he doesn’t need to earn that support. Which I think again is quite moving because everyone dreams of this kind of relationship. We are all scared that we are not good enough to let someone help us in the first place and this is where yoi tells us it doesn’t have to be this way.
I’m sure there are much more tropes that are reversed in yoi and there is the whole narration layer that is also quite original but as storytelling is what I have the most experience with I decided to focus on this aspect only. And I may be wrong I just like to find and discuss narration schemes so please argue if you disagree but I love the fact that even when yoi takes those basic narration schemes it uses it to send a very positive message across and for me it could be a reason why there is such an enthusiastic fandom around it - because this anime exchanges the story of fighting alone for a story about growing in a relationship though it does not change a sports story for a cheaply romantic one.
[ARTICLE] Hit Rookie Girl Group Member Wows With Her Voice And Gets Teary On “King Of Masked Singer”
A member of a hugely popular rookie girl group impressed everyone with her talents and her unique vocal style on “King of Masked Singer”!
On March 26’s episode of “King of Masked Singer,” the contestant Circus Girl returned to the stage for her second round, in which she performed Jung Seung Hwan’s ballad “If It Is You.” Many of the panel members were touched by her beautiful voice and the emotion she put into her performance. In addition, many of them guessed that she may not be Korean because of her pronunciation.
During the talent portion, Circus Girl also cracked up the panel with her impressions of BIGBANG’s G-Dragon and Britney Spears.
In the end, her competitor Kim Ping Pong won the round with a score of 70 to her 29. Circus Girl removed her mask to reveal that she was BLACKPINK’s Rosé, as many fans had suspected!
When host Kim Sung Joo pointed out that she was Korean after all, Rosé explained, “Yes, but I was born in New Zealand, and then lived in Australia. I came to Korea to be a singer.”
Many of the panelists had commented on her unique vocal style, and Rosé said with a laugh, “I used to think that my voice is quite ordinary, but I hear that it’s very unique a lot. I’m not sure if it’s a compliment or not!” The panelists made sure to clarify that it’s definitely a good thing.
Kim Sung Joo then said he’d heard there was someone she wanted to show her performance to today. “Yes, my mom,” she replied, but when he asked her where her mom is right now, she got teary and stepped away before fanning her face with her hand.
“She’s in Australia,” explained Rosé, before adding, “I’m always crying on TV shows! I’m so embarrassed, I’m sorry!” She then sent a video message to her mom in which she assured her she’s doing well, and that she’ll practise hard so her mom can be proud of her.
