he is one of my favourite rappers

PR.

Guy’s. There’s not many things in life that make me this frustrated, however this Ty/Lauren “relationship” bullshit is an exception. I found myself browsing on these ‘Tyren Updates’ accounts and actually saw the extent of how blinded people actually are by all this. One of my favourite ever comments I read was a Harmonizer calling Ty a “feminist” insisting he was an “activist to different communities” Are people for real? Like seriously, do people genuinely believe this? Do they see his online presence or listen to his lyrics? He is known throughout the music industry specifically for his misogynistic attitudes. Articles and interviewers have labelled him “arguably the most misogynistic rapper in music’. That’s NOT a title to be proud of. In fact, It’s quite disgusting. 

When I hear grown men belittling, demeaning and degrading women in the way Ty does, I always wonder how they would feel if their female family members were being spoken about in such a disrespectful manner. They’d find it incredibly inappropriate right? So what then gives these men the right to say those things about someonelse’s mother/sister/daughter etc? The answer simply is, it doesn’t. This is my issue.

Then we’ve got Lauren. You literally couldn’t get more opposite personalities if you tried. Lauren passionately campaigns for our fundamental human rights, engaging in social and political activism whenever she can. She generously donates thousands of dollars to fans with ill health and those who need it most. She’s the first to defend herself and who she is, confidently allowing fans to realise that no matter what, everything will be okay. Regardless of who we are, what we look like and who we love she teaches us to embrace what makes us ‘different’ and be proud of who we are. My problem is the negatives hit the headlines before all these incredible things she does make them. She always seems to been labelled the “bitchy” one of the group, but for what? For showing passion? For speaking out against the fucked up political state of our global society? If that makes you a bitch, sign me up. 

I know a lot of fans are struggling to see this is PR, but I’m sure this will help you out. 

I clicked on Ty’s twitter a few days ago (I know, I’m disappointed in me too) and just look at this. The accounts tweeting him aren’t just L stans, they’re Harmonizers. Whatever management are doing, its fucking working. These Harmonizers have fully jumped ship (literally lol). They’re listening, streaming and buying Ty’s new music. 

Interactions between the two are blatantly staged. When one uploads a picture, the other HAS to post some sort of proof to evidence fans that they are together. So the Lauren update accounts, and the Tyren accounts can confirm this to fans. It gets people talking and speculating. Now, by all means correct me if I’m wrong, but if you’re the private person we all know that Lauren is, there’s no way (ooops I just triggered myself back into the 7/27 era) she would be uploading videos/pictures of her and her respectful partner all over social media. It’s not real guys, wake up. 

Is it just me or has anyone noticed the 2 Tys?

So first we’ve got Ty insisting he’s against slut shaming, posting pro feminist images about the female body and telling us girls to love our insecurities (sounds familiar)

I’ll call this one the “Media Pleaser Ty”:

Then we’ve got the other version. The one who degrades women to a sex act putting undermining their worth and power

So, then I’ll call this one the “Real Ty”:

I don’t know about you guys, but this is pretty degrading isn’t it? But, isn’t this slut shaming? As fans, it’s no secret this is Lauren’s habit? Is this the image he’s reducing Lauren to?

When Ty’s album finally drops and Lauren’s collab with Steve Aoki is released (Steve has already confirmed this will be his next single, there’s just no release date as of yet), this Ty/Lauren “romance” will end. Period. Both parties will say “nothing was confirmed”, “we were just vining” or “we never dated” something along those lines.

And while all this shit is going on, we can always rely on Camila coming through, confirming EVERYTHING to us on social media.


Open your eyes, listen to the lyrics in ‘Somebody Else’ and always remember:

“Fuck that, get money, I can’t give you my soul ‘cause we’re never alone”

Enjoy.

A glimpse of French music

A bunch of people asked me what french music I listen to and if I could introduce them to french music, i’m sorry if i took so long but I wasn’t sure what should I say, but I think i’ll just introduce you to my favourite french artists

The first one is actually from belgium but he’s quite popular in France, and I love his music and this artist so much, his name is Stromae

Quand c’est  (link) a beautiful song about cancer and its victims, very sad but very poetic

Tous les mêmes (link) In this song he breaks and fights against gender roles and clichés

The second one is a french rap band, with the two artists Orelsan and Gringe, what I love about this band is that their texts are not like so many french rappers’ texts, about drugs and sex and violence, but about real life matters and problems, and their texts are also very poetic. The band name is Casseurs Flowteurs 

Inachevés (link) is about their need of doing great things but feeling demotivated and ending up doing nothing, but finally realizing how they must achieve things by finishing their song

06h16-Des histoires à raconter (link) is about insomnia, the lack of self-confidence and regrets (and the music video is soooo beautiful)

Funfact: Orelsan is a huge anime fan and was chosen to dub Saitama from One Punch Man in the french version (an extract from the dubbing session)

I hope this will be useful and interesting for some of you!

Namjoon

When I learned to know BTS, he was one of the members I recognized first. He has this calm, secure, open and warm aura, that makes you feel safe just by looking at him. Namjoon never fails to let fans know that he cares about us and supports us no matter what.

I am the fan that silently supports you through your personal battles and loneliness in life.” x

“Y’all are people who can give someone love and sincerity. Those kind of people can achive anything. I know some talk like you’re naive, too young, but eventually fools change this world. I believe that, so believe in ourselves more. I love you.” x

Namjoon is one of the best idol rappers and I would say he’s also one of the best in the world. He has an amazing talent for writing sincere lyrics, he plays with the words and manipulates them with ease. He wrote most of the lyrics for Spring Day on two days and the lyrics he’s most proud of is Not Today. But honestly, you don’t want to piss off Rap Monster, if you don’t want to be burned into nothing in his next track. No matter if that is his part in Cypher or a solo track like Joke. My favourite from his solo tracks is Do You. With this song he’s encouraging you to be yourself with all your flaws and not letting you change through others or restricted by labels.

“Even if you’re not perfect you’re limited edition”

“Just wear what you want, how you want to.”

This group, that has come so far and we all love, exists also because of him and he takes the best care of the members since day one. He encourages the others in whatever they do, he never pressures them and he never lets them down when they come to him for help. He truly is the best leader. 

Besides his rapping Namjoon really has beautiful, low and soft vocals and he shows that next to Jungkook with the cover of Fools by Troye Sivan and the song I Know, he wrote for ARMY to express their love for their fans:

Know you love me girl
So that I love you
Know you love me boy
So that I love you
I’ll be by your side, always
Don’t worry ’bout a thing
My love

Over the years he grew even more when it comes to speaking out. He’s never silent about issues of politics and society in his lyrics. He never misses a chance to speak his mind, but he never does it aggressive, never without kindness or respect. He’s a feminist, he supports LGBT and he speaks out of the hearts of many in such a sensitive way.

“I don’t care if you’re red, blue, green, orange, purple, whatever, thank you”

Namjoon loves books, he enjoys going on walks and being alone. He has his own sense for fashion and likes breaking stereotypes. He works hard to make up his lacks when it comes to learn choreography since he’s not as a natural dancer as other members. He has that thing that everything tends to destroy itself around him as soon as he touches it, must be a coincidence, really. He loves cute things and has a dog called Rapmon. Also he’s Bangtans tumblr boy, it wouldn’t surprise me if he had an aesthetic blog around here. Honestly he is painfully handsome and attractive with the best hair, no matter what color, with his dimples and perfect eyebrows and the way he expresses himself and always finds the right words. 

Basically Namjoon is that type of person I would totally love to sit with, over a good coffee, somewhere with a view over water and have a conversation about everything and nothing.

Namjoon’s a wonderful, kind and gentle soul. He makes this world a bit better and he deserves all the love and appreciation.

“Please ARMYs remember what we say. Love myself, love yourself.”

Rap Monster: [EXO]

 “I’m creeping in your heart babe!”

You sang along out loud to one of your favourite EXO songs while washing dishes and watching the television. When Chan appeared on the screen, you couldn’t help but squeal at him. After all, he was was your bias. Namjoon was laying on the couch while reading and thought you had cut yourself while washing something, due to your screechy high note. With a startle he looked up, and the smile on your face had left him confused until he realized your were watching the music video. All you heard was a whine and then, “Babe! I’m still your favourite monster, right?”

 V: [EXO] 

“Call me baby, call me baby”

Entering the house, he could easily hear you singing FIRE and chuckled. When you had gone silent he couldn’t help but creep toward the bedroom where you were sitting with headphones on. He watched as you clicked on to an EXO video and started singing to yourself. Taehyung smiled until he saw you giggle at Kai. You always had an innocent crush on him, and when he saw how your eyes stayed on him while they danced. He quickly closed your computer and mumbled, “I’m your baby. Not him.“

“Welcome to my world let’s do this~”

Jimin froze. You rarely sung around him, who would even try to? His voice was amazing, and you didn’t need to hear his angelic voice mix with your awful cat screech. So when Jimin came back home for his phone and heard you in the shower singing, he couldn’t help but listen. You sang GOT7’s latest song. However, being a fangirl, you couldn’t help but make comments while singing. The one that made Jimin barge into the bathroom was the one about how lovely Youngjae’s voice was. 

 "I thought I was the one with an angelic voice?" 

“JIMIN! GET OUT!”

 “NOT UNTIL YOU SAY MY VOICE IS YOUR FAVOURITE!”

“Everyday boom boom!”

You watched the performance with such a twinkle in your eye. You couldn’t help it, they were amazing on stage. Being the fan that you were, you couldn’t help but sing along. Everyone’s eyes obviously focused on Joshua. You noticed Jin staring at you and gave him a questioning glance. "No, I see how it is. Obviously I’m old news, Joshua is the one you want. Well you can have him, but you can’t have my food anymore.” The other boys would be so confused omg

“Why don’t you know don’t you know don’t you know~”

This poor boy… He wouldn’t know if he should laugh or take a video of how hyper you were while watching EXID video. That was, until you made a comment about how you’d switch lanes so fast for a certain member ((they are all so pretty omg I can’t choose)) “As cool as that would be, I don’t want to share you… I’m still your favourite rapper, right?” “No that’s J-Hope.” “… Same.”

Jungkook: [Got7]

 “Baby… You are just, just right~”

You were meant to be cleaning, but who could do that when their favourite song came on? Jungkook had just woken up, and walked into the living to see you watching the music video for ‘Just Right’, dancing along. However, when Yugyeom appeared on the screen, a dreamy sigh escaped your lips and you stopped just to stare at him. Before you realized what had happened, the television was quickly shut off. "I’m the only maknae worth looking at love.”

((Yes I’m using this song again. I’m new to kpop don’t judge)) 

He kinda just froze. You were dancing to EXO’s monster and you were doing pretty well. He thought it was nothing but you just having fun. Until you stopped mid-step to watch them dance again. And then he heard you speaking to yourself quietly: “Who else looks as good as Kai when dancing?” Before you knew it, J-Hope was in front of you. “Obviously I do, and I’m meant to be your favourite dance. Remember that, babe!”

Millie please make one of those amazing posts of yours for Howon too. I love it when non-Howon biased people praise him. Also he deserves all the love but there is still prejudice towards him (thankfully it's less now compared to few years back) So let's spread Holove 💜 - infnthoya

Of course I am more than happy to make a post about our wonderful HoyaYahoHoya! Especially for you @infnthoya !

You can see the previous posts (Sunggyu/Woohyun/Sungyeol) here!

1. DANCE GOD HOYA

Okay but before I say anything else, this performance he did on Hit The Stage with the amazing (queen) Choi Hyojin still reduces me to tears because it is PERFECTION and it really showcases the fact that Hoya can dance in a different style to his usual go-to hip hop moves!

The theme for that episode was This Love and although everyone’s performances were great, Hoya and Hyojin absolutely deserved their win because this was ART and totally projected all this raw emotion and I will never get over it. 

Hoya is INFINITE’s main dancer and it’s not hard to see why. Over the years it’s been amazing to see him improve and build on his skills and talents. He actually dropped out of high school to pursue dance, even though his family were against this decision. He did eventually get his high school diploma, but it took a while for his relationship with his family (and his father in particular) to be mended again. 

It’s great to see that nowadays, Hoya’s name is often mentioned when people talk about the greatest dancers in k-pop. He is more than deserving of it.

2. THAT VOICE THOOOOOOUGH!

Although Hoya started out as one of INFINITE’s rapper line, he’s had vocal lines in songs for a looooong long time. However, not everyone noticed how much his voice had actually improved until INFINITE’s more recent albums. In 2015 Hoya opened up his own YouTube channel and surprised everyone by posting his first cover - Zion T’s Kiss Me. He followed this up weeks later with an English cover song, an acoustic arrangement of Ariana Grande’s Problem. Although he hasn’t been as active as we might like on the channel, it’s a goldmine that shows of how wonderfully soothing and great his voice is. My personal favourite so far is his cover of 이게아닌데 (This Ain’t It) by Taeyang. But for some nice visuals, check out my second fave (and another English cover), John Legend’s All Of Me. 

Then of course, there’s the fact that he got into the composing game just like fellow member Woohyun. The song One Day on INFINITE’s 2016 album INFINITE Only was co-written by Hoya and was performed on music shows during promotions for 태풍 (The Eye). He also wrote and composed his own track 아무렇지 않은 척 (Pretending It’s Okay), which he performed on 4Things Show. This song seriously gets stuck in my head all the time and I really wish he’d upload a full version on his channel or that it might feature on an INFINITE/INFINITE H album in the future. On top of all of this, Hoya has always been involved in writing his own raps ~~

3. HO-ACTOR

One of the first things I watched that had an INFINITE member in it was Reply 1997. And in that (incredible) drama, Hoya played Kang Joonhee. And that character was an ANGEL. He played the role so well, so convincingly. I really connected with his character and Hoya was praised a lot for his role. This is my absolute favourite scene of all time. Excuse me while I go cry. 

Hoya has also starred in: Reply 1994 (cameo as Joonhee), My Lovely Girl (alongside member Myungsoo), Mask and as a lead role in the movie Hiya. Currently he is in both Strong Family and Radiant Office. Despite the fact that Lee Howon is an awkward baby, his acting skills are A+++++ so pleeeeeease check out everything he has starred in so far. 

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE!

I feel like I got way too emo in this post, but genuinely I love Lee Howon so much and wish he was my best friend tbh. Here are some more things I think everyone needs to know about him: 

  • His sexy, R-rated solo stages. Okay so… these speak for themselves
  • His weird jokes that only he finds funny. Honestly, prime DadJoke material. 
  • Hoya’s passionate hard work. Not only does he dance and dance and dance some more, even to the point of injury (that happened because he danced too hard on an existing weak ankle to ‘impress everyone in the audience’) and well into the night, he also worked hard to speak in Seoul dialect so he could be easily understood by fans. 
  • Overwhelming love and affection for his fans. Everyone always says Woohyun is the fan service king in INFINITE and while that may be true, Hoya is definitely fierce competition. Just look at how many V Live broadcasts the boy has done, his Instagram stories and frequent updates, and the song he covered as a dedication to Inspirit. 
  • His relationships with the other INFINITE members, whether it’s the gag-duo of Sunggyu + Hoya (HOBAK GOGYUMA), the affectionate Dongwoo + Hoya couple (INFINITE H), awkward bros Woohyun + Hoya, brother-like love Sungjong + Hoya…. he matches so well with every member in different ways. 
  • Those eyebrows, that jawline…. His visuals are no joke

And here concludes me pouring all my repressed Hoya feels into one long ass post. I really hope you all enjoy it and please love Lee Howon just a little bit more than you did before

Monsta X reaction: their s/o babysitting their nephew while hanging out with him

Request: hii could I request a Monsta X reaction to their s/o babysitting their niece/nephew while hanging out with them? thank youuuu

Hey! This request is so soft, I hope you like it!!

MASTERLIST

REQUEST HERE


Shownu: This would definitely give him a vision into the future and make him imagine what it’d be like to raise a child of your own with him. He’d be kind of awkward with your little nephew at first but would smile loads and try his best to get him to like him. Shownu is 100% husband/father material and definitely wants kids in the future so watching you look after a kid would make him go all heart eyes to be honest.

“H-hi, I’m Hyunwoo, I’m sure me and you are gonna get along greatly!” *so smiley and friendly*

Originally posted by madtwn

Wonho: Would want to get super close with your nephew, almost like a father-son type thing. He’s another member who I think wants kids in the future and he’d totally take your little nephew to go to his favourite place to eat or go to one of those play areas for kids, and don’t think he’d just sit back and let him have fun on his own, he’d try drag you into it with him and in the end, you’d all be in a ball pit just acting like kids together, with an actual kid.

“I call a game of hide and seek! You better go hide if you don’t want me to find you~”

Originally posted by sh0wnu

Minhyuk: So so soft. He’d be so gentle with your nephew and get really happy when he realizes he likes him. I feel like he’d be the type of person to teach him silly clapping games with a super catchy song with it and always do them with him. He’d get so smiley while interacting with him, you just can’t help but take a photo to capture the moment. The photo would end up as your lockscreen and Minhyuk would be really happy when he sees it.

“Your nephew is so cute!! I’m glad I got to meet him!”

Originally posted by chiqkihyun

Kihyun: So shy!!! Really wants to make a good impression on your nephew even though he’s only young and doesn’t take anything too seriously yet. He’d be quite quiet around him because he doesn’t know what to say but with some encouragement from you, a conversation would get flowing and before you know it, they would be talking about the randomest things, like what movies are his favourite and instantly watches them with him after he tells him.

“No way, you like Toy Story too? I love that movie! Do you want to watch it with me?”

Originally posted by kihyuon

^him getting all smiley while talking to your nephew when he finally gets comfortable. 

Hyungwon: You already know this meme would goof around with him so much. He wouldn’t even be discrete about it. He’d act just as childlike as an actual child and it’d make your nephew like him a lot as it made him feel like they were friends, and they would become friends in a short amount of time. They’d always have competitions to see who could pull the funniest face and stuff like that. It’d warm your heart to see Hyungwon and your nephew getting on so well.

“Can you make a face like this? Oh my, I think that was even funnier than mine! That won’t do, competition time!”

Originally posted by jongdaesbbg

Jooheon: He’d completely soften up, no badass rapper persona for him today. When he sees him for the first time he’d definitely talk to him in his aegyo voice, you know the voice I’m talking about. That voice would make your nephew laugh and instantly make Jooheon come off as likable to him. He’d play video games with him and discuss which ones were his favourite. The three of you would end up playing random games together while simultaneously having an aegyo battle.

“Ah who’s this cutie~? I’m not sure if I’m even as cute as you! This is unheard of!”

Originally posted by luvscheol

Changkyun: He’d instantly ask him if he knew who Monsta X were and if he didn’t, boy your nephew was about to get schooled. He’d sit with him by a computer or laptop and show him multiple music videos and always point out when he was on the screen. Afterwards, your nephew would think Changkyun was the coolest person ever and would always be singing Monsta X songs from then onwards. Changkyun wouldn’t mind being seen as an idol by him at all, in fact, he’d love it.

“Did you know your aunt’s boyfriend is a super cool rapper? Do you want me to show you? Yes? Good choice!” (I’m sorry if you don’t go by female pronouns for this one :S)

He’s got to be one of my top two favourite rappers in the whole world, he’s just really smart and I have so much fun watching him work, sometimes if I have a track and I play it for him he can put something down right away and it’s always so different

I Like You Too

Haechan x Reader

Wordcount: 2,065

Requested by anon:

Can i request a scenario where you really like Haechan but doesnt think he likes you back so you always make jokes about how Haechan and Mark would be such a great couple and one day Haechan finally snaps and confesses to you because hes annoyed that you seem to be oblivious that he likes you too? Thank you!

“Awwwww, look at the happy couple!”

“For the last time (y/n), we aren’t a couple!” Haechan shot you a glare.

You walked past Mark and Haechan sitting together in the practice room. One of the many perks of being the cousin of NCT’s manager was getting to go watch NCT practice.  It also meant you had grown close with the members, particularly Haechan.  Being the same age, it was comfortable hanging out with him.  Though, the two of you had a love/hate relationship, as in you loved to hate on each other.

“Come on, the fandom practically demands the two of you be together!” you laughed.

In all honesty though, you made fun of him because you were trying to hide your true feelings.  You liked Haechan.  He was talented, witty, cute…  You even found his sarcasm endearing.  It gave him an edge that the guys at your high school didn’t have.  They were all either too focused on school to care about dating, or overly flirty and would smother you with sweet nothings in an attempt to hook up.  But Haechan challenged you.  His sarcasm kept you on your toes and if you weren’t on your A-game at all times, he would mock you into oblivion.  Being sarcastic yourself, you were more than willing to challenge him back.

Recently, shipping him with Mark was your favourite way to get under his skin.  You weren’t sure why, but it seemed to bother him more than any other joke or insult you had ever thrown his way.

“But Haechan, imagine telling people you’re dating a rapper,” Mark chimed in.  Being shipped with another one of the members wasn’t exactly Mark’s favourite thing, but he was always down to annoy Haechan, even if it meant playing along with your teasing.

“I’d rather date Taeyong hyung, thanks,” Haechan fired back.

“You’re not really my type Haechan.  Besides, I think (y/n) is right.  You and Mark look so happy together,” Taeyong jumped into the conversation.

“I hate all of you,” Haechan said, hands balled into fists.  He stomped out of the practice room, muttering something about needing a drink of water.

Your eyes followed him out of the room, satisfied that you had gotten under his skin.  It was what the two of you did.  He knew you didn’t mean anything by it, and you knew he didn’t really hate you.  Knowing your friendship, he would walk, back in any moment with some savage comeback.  You were already trying to think of your next diss when a tap on the shoulder snapped you out of your thoughts.

“Are you ever gonna tell Donghyuck how you feel?” Mark asked.  He was the only one who knew about your crush.

“I want to, but I also don’t want to mess things up.  I like our relationship how it is now.”

“Yea, because constantly insulting each other is so great,” Mark giggled his famous giggle.  “But, as long as you’re okay with that I guess I can’t say anything.”

“I am okay with it.  Plus, I doubt he likes me anyways.  He’s always flirting with other trainees,” you said, looking down at the floor in disappointment.  You and Haechan were just friends - you had accepted that.


***


“(Y/n), don’t even think about it,” Haechan said, raising his hand up to signal for you to stop.  You were just about to make a joke about him and Mark sitting to close together.

“But you guys are just so cute together!”

Taeyong had invited you over to the dorm to watch a movie with the guys during some of their rare downtime.  Not surprising at all, you walked in to find Mark and Haechan sitting so close together on the couch that Haechan may as well have been sitting in Mark’s lap.

Haechan scowled at you as he moved over, leaving a space between him and Mark for you to sit.  You looked at the TV screen ready to watch whatever the guys had picked out.  Their pick turned out to be a horror movie.  Of course.  You liked horror, but you were definitely the type to get freaked out and cover your eyes.  As the movie progressed, you went back and forth between clinging to Mark for protection, and burying your face in Haechan’s shoulder in an attempt to hide yourself away from what was on the screen.

“You’re such a wuss, (y/n),” Haechan mocked when the movie ended.

“Says the one who cried,” Taeyong said, giggling at the memory of Haechan tearing up during the movie’s climax.

“Yea Haechan.  Why can’t you be as brave as your boyfriend Mark?”  Of course you had to get a comeback of your own into the conversation.

“Aw, come on (y/n), don’t be so hard on him,” Mark chimed in, probably wanting to spare himself from more of your embarrassing comments.

“It’s true!  Even when I leaned into Haechan for comfort, I could hear him sobbing.  It was so funny!  Then there was you, actually comforting me.  You’re definitely the manly one in this ship,” your disses escalated.

“OH MY GOD.  If Mark’s so great, why don’t you date him?!” 

“He’s more your type than mine,” you continued to joke.

“You just don’t get it!”

“Why are you getting so angry at me?”

“Be-because!” Averting his gaze from yours.

“Because why?” You urged him to explain himself.

“You’re so dumb (y/n)!”

“Excuse me?!”

“You’re so clueless!  I like you okay!  I, Lee Donghyuck, like YOU!  I hate when you joke about me dating Mark.  I’d hate if you joked about me dating anyone, because the only person I really want to date is you!”  Haechan yelled at you before storming off into his room and slamming the door behind him.  You had never seen him that angry before.  Sure, the two of you pushed each other’ s buttons, but the worst it had gotten was just being annoyed.  This was the first time one of you had actually been upset about your teasing, and you weren’t sure why he was so worked up.  You were just kidding.  Surely he knew that, right?  The thought of actually hurting him caused you to tear up.  You had liked him for months, and finally knew that he liked you too.  But you had really messed this one up.

Taeyong came over to put a comforting arm around you and in a gentle voice said, “he’s just over-reacting (y/n).  Why don’t you go in and talk to him after he’s had a few minutes to cool off?”

You nodded your head and sat back down on the couch.  All you could do was wait to go in, apologize, and hope that Haechan forgave you.  You weren’t going to let this turn into something bigger and potentially cause problems for your friendship.  You cared too much about him.

“It’ll be okay (y/n),” Mark said, sitting down beside you.  “He’s hot-headed, but it’ll blow over.  He really does like you.  I’m sorry I didn’t tell you before, but I promised him I wouldn’t tell anyone.”

You smiled up at Mark.  It wasn’t his fault that this happened.  If anything, you should have seen the line Haechan had lay out and not crossed it.  You had pushed him too far.  Worry began to set in at the thought of potentially ruining your chances with Haechan over a stupid joke.

A few minutes passed and you decided it was time to go apologize.  You rose from your spot on the couch and made your way over to his room.  You knocked on his door, only to get no response.  You knocked again, even said his name, but still nothing.  Hoping that he had left the door unlocked, you turned the handle hoping he hadn’t locked it.  Luckily, it turned all the way and allowed you to open the door.  Peeking your head around the door, you saw Haechan lying in his bed, face down, arms under his pillow to support his head.

Quietly, you moved to sit down beside him.

“Haechan?” you whispered, gently putting your hand on his back.  Keeping his face down so as to not look at you, he shifted his body to shake your hand off.  Removing one hand from under the pillow, he shook it towards the door, silently telling you to leave.  But you weren’t going to give up that easily.

“Haechan, I’m sorry.  I took the joking too far and crossed a line.  I didn’t know it hurt you so much when I make fun of you and Mark,” you said quietly.  It wasn’t hard for you to sound sincere.  You genuinely felt sorry for making him upset, even if it was an accident.

The two of you remained silent for a few moments, letting your apology sink in.  Not wanting to push him, and with no reponse from Haechan, you stood up to leave the room.

“Wait,” you heard Haechan say from behind you. You turned to find him now sitting up on the edge of the bed.  He pat the spot on his bed to his left, silently asking you to sit back down.  “I should be sorry.  I’m sorry I got so mad at you.”

“You don’t need to apologize.  I should have been able to read you better.  I should have known when to stop,” you said.  You didn’t want him to feel guilty for what had happened.

“It’s my fault too.  I could have told you that it was getting to be too much for me.  I should have told you how I felt about you, but I was scared,” Haechan confessed.

“What were you scared of?”

“Losing you, I guess.”

“Why would you ever be scared of losing me?  We’re best friends.  We’ll always be a part of each other’s lives,” you said, taking his hands in yours, moving closer so your legs were flush against each others.

“That’s the thing.  We’re friends. Just… friends,” he sighed.

“But we don’t have to be “just friends” anymore,” you hinted.

“That’s exactly why I didn’t want to confess.  You don’t feel the same and now you don’t even want to be friends anymore because it’s awkward and I screwed things up,” he rushed his words as he dropped your hands and stood up.  He ran his hands through his hair in frustration.  You reached out to grab one of his hands again, tugging on his arm so he would turn around to face you.

“I mean I like you too, you idiot.  Since we like each other, we can be more than friends.  If you want of course,” you confessed, smiling up at him.  You truly never thought that he would like you back.  It felt surreal to be telling him how you felt, especially since you already knew that he felt the same about you. The two of you actually had a chance of being together.

Still holding your hand, Haechan sat down beside you, on the opposite side he was on before.  He looked at you directly in the eyes, so intensely that you were afraid to blink.  The two of you were always joking around and teasing each other.  It felt strange to be sitting there so seriously.  But at the same time, it was probably the happiest you had felt throughout your time knowing him.

“(Y/n), of course I want us to be more!  I don’t have much dating experience… In fact I don’t have any.  But I promise I’ll try to be the best boyfriend ever,” Haechan beamed at you.

Without hesitation you pulled him in for a hug.

“And I’ll try to be the best girlfriend ever,” you whispered into his ear, causing him to giggle from the sensation.

“But you know this doesn’t mean I’m going to stop teasing you,” Haechan said.

“I wouldn’t dream of it.”

Releasing each other from the embrace, you both stood up, ready to go out and let the others know that you had resolved everything.

“Should we tell the guys that we’re together now?” you inquired.

“Of course!  I can’t wait to rub it in the hyungs’ faces that I have a girlfriend and they don’t!  Especially Mark hyung!”

And with that, Haechan took your hand in his and led you out of his room, ready to let the world know that finally, the two of you were together.


Another one for the Dream boys~ Hope you guys enjoyed this!!  I’m a few years older than all of the Dream members, so I always feel a bit weird writing for them.  I think it’s just because it’s harder for me to imagine dating them lol.  But nonetheless, I hope this was okay!!  Thanks for reading and don’t be afraid to send in requests :)

TRAUMA - Lyrics + Meanings/Theories

I’m back. Apparently I cannot be stopped.

I made this post yesterday about the Trauma MV and its Symbolism. I’ve had the time to process the song now so I’m gonna break down the lyrics here. This post is mostly going to be for my personal interest and knowledge, but by all means, everyone is open to reading it and I’d love to hear what other Carats think.

Once again, these are my opinions. This is my translation of the song, based on my (somewhat mediocre) Korean skills, so there might be mistakes. I’ll edit this post in the future if this happens. 

To start off, let me put it out there that although I’m complete and utter Hoshi trash, HipHop Unit is my favourite unit. I find their lyrics to be the most raw and real, and they have this really unique sound plus the killer visuals are a sweet little bonus

I’ll go by each member and their verse and then talk about Mingyu last. Long post ahead beware

Vernon

Trauma got me baby
I dropped out when I was in the 8th grade, basically had no friends
Boxed in boxed in my lonely world
Stuck in my fantasy like dreaming it to be real life
I waited without thoughts but now I realize
I’m just going to be alone like this, I don’t know anything except for this
So I plug in my earphones, increase the volume
I don’t wanna be alone
I don’t want to forget Imma sing this song is anybody listening

Alright, pretty self-explanatory verse. I agree with other theories that each member is talking about his trauma/greatest fear. Hansol dug up some shit from his past here, dropping out of school to become an idol is not an easy feat. Being half-Caucasian, he used to receive hate and bullying from his peers, and maybe this is what he’s alluding to when he says he had no friends. 

Then he talks about being in his own little world, with his headphones plugged in. This was a running gag on OFD Japan, where Vernon was always spaced out, and Seungkwan tells him in the end that if he actually unplugged his headphones and listened, that he wouldn’t be the last member to always find out stuff. But Vernon is telling us here that there’s a reason he always has headphones in? It’s his escape? This dream world that he’s created. He’s rapping “I don’t want to be alone, is anybody listening” while surrounded by fans in a boxed room. Pretty clear imagery here: Despite all the fans around him, he feels alone and distant and like he has no friends. 

S.Coups

I’ll include all his verses here (he repeats one twice and then there’s one at the end)

I barely spat out my breath, it’s like I’m forgetting how to do it
Missing you is the hardest thing for me
Now the thoughts barely come, this light that is given to me
Unlike the stage where I am in my mind, is only one 1 pyeong 
[~3 metres]”(this is repeated twice, after Vernon’s part and then after Wonwoo’s)

“Yeah I’m singing singing, even when the sound of music decreases
Said I want to sing, yeah
Anybody will do, just get me out of here, or else you come in
.” (this is right before the final chorus)”

Sigh, Cheol. 

He’s the only one who mentions somebody else in his verse. All other members are talking about themselves. This, coupled with the bed setting in the MV, can symbolize maybe an intimate relationship - either the loss of a lover or a friend?

Alternatively, his trauma can be losing those close to him? His lyrics are vague. “The light that is given to me, unlike the stage in my mind, is only 3 metres”. My heart breaks a little here. Is he saying that he doesn’t feel appreciated enough? That not enough light is shed on him? He is sitting in the darkness alone in one of the shots, so it makes sense. Cheol is a surprisingly underrated member. He’s a fantastic rapper, lyricist, and dancer but never quite gets to stand out (coming up behind to composer Jihoon and choreographer Hoshi). His job, as overall leader, is to monitor from the background, to show off SVT as a group, instead of standing out himself. Personally, (and not because im biased hush) he’s my favourite rapper in the unit, I love his style, and I wish he’d get the spotlight more often to showcase just how good he really is.

I don’t really have any theories for his last verse. He continues to sing even when the music dies down, indicating that he works relentlessly without break (the bed can also symbolize sleep! aka taking rest and we all know Cheol is against resting smh). The last line “Anybody will do, just get me out of here or you come in” can indicate that he is alone in his burden and wants someone to rely on idk. 

[EDIT] After basically having this song on repeat for the past 2 weeks or so, I think what Seungcheol was alluding to was his delayed debut. “Said I want to sing”, “Anybody will do, just get me out of here” probably means that he’s talking about his time spent locked away in the Pledis basement, never knowing when or if he’d be able to make it in the industry. I just want to hug him. 

Wonwoo

HERE COME THE WATERWORKS. JEON WONWOO YOU ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL MAN, LET ME HUG YOU AND KEEP YOU WARM

Brr brr
Unforgettable things about my accustomed immaturity
The trauma that stemmed from my inner doubts
What is my reason for existing?
Even though I regret it, it bothers me like a loach
I’m going to sing, no I’m going to lock away my trauma even more yeah
The pit that I dug myself is getting even deeper
Yeah, deeper, deeper, and I can’t even find it myself
Even I don’t know the end of this trauma, I need a hand to hold

He is most certainly talking about his SNSD ‘scandal’ – his unforgettable memory of his immaturity. He regrets it, but it continues to eat at him so much that he questions himself daily. He talks about how he sings to lock away his feelings, but that just means he’s digging himself a hole that keeps getting deeper and he doesn’t know how to get out. 

Wonwoo’s trauma is mental, unlike the rest, its all in his head. But sometimes, the mind can be the hardest to run away from. 

Mingyu

“I’m in trauma it’s got me sick*
Stuck in trauma I’m just going to sing
Blah blah blah blah why can’t I forget?
That’s my trauma my trauma yeah
Now it’s got me sick, sick, sick*
Stuck in trauma I’m going to sing
That’s my trauma my trauma yeah

*Idk if it’s sick or sing we will have to wait and see

He literally says his trauma is that he cannot forget. Forget what? The Blah Blah Blah can represent noise inside his head that he can’t shut out, it can represent the hate he received when he debuted, it can represent things he reads about himself on news etc. 

Mingyu’s was the most general, obviously considering it was the chorus. I think his trauma was shown more clearly via imagery instead of lyrics. The room he was in was a mess (and we all know Mingyu is clean and likes to be organized) and it can mean his cluttered thoughts, as well as the high expectations laid out on him 


Alright, I’m done. This song is a masterpiece and I’m doing this post so that hopefully some people read it and appreciate the lyrics as well. The MV is a piece of art, no doubt, but Trauma goes deeper than that.

These boys willingly shared their feelings with us, something not a lot of idols do. This is raw, this is real. This shows that not everything is always rainbows and unicorns and that they are human too. I have never related to an idol more in my life than I have to SVT’s HipHop Unit, not just with Trauma, but with Can’t See The End, with Lean on Me, with If I. SVT in general has that effect (Still Lonely is another perfect example)

Maybe it’s just me, but i feel a burden. They’ve let us see how they really feel, and its our job as Carats to give back. They fully trust us, enough to tell us their personal fears and stories. I’m honoured to be a part of this fandom, this family, and to be trusted with something that comes from a really personal space. They are willing to show us their weaknesses and seriously, all we have to do is respect their space, their talent, and not abuse the trust that they have placed in our hands. 

I can’t wait for the other Unit MVs, and the album. Seventeen never fail to astound me with every new release.

TL;DR: Please appreciate my children, if you haven’t listened to SVT yet what are you doing with your life seriously.

Give it 2 me - SHINHWA 

Honestly, this is my low-key favourite song.  (it’s one of the favourite song from WE album 😄😄) Though the lyrics is quite R-rated (lol as expect of our minu oppa 😂😂), and that’s the reason why this is my low-key favourite song LOL. 😂😂😝😝

And i love this version because of oppayam here, lol his melodic embellish (changing of the original melody in studio ver.) in @2:34 really makes this song more R-rated (+ the “moans” in front 😂😂) And it doesn’t help when he danced like this. 

ALSO, this is again my favourite rap parts from all the 3 rappers among their songs, and esp Eric oppa’s rap line (because it’s such a good hook that makes you remember😉😉)  ~ Uh 니 태도 상상을, 불러 일으키는 니 태도, Uh 니 태도 상상을
불러 일으키는 니 태도 

Also, minwoo oppa getting into the mood 😉😉 + Minjin’s sexy moment~ 

Not forgetting our shy-awkward hyesung oppa’s sexy moment 😍😍😍

+ Andy oppa 😍😍

/SHOT TO DEATH + NOSEBLEED 😝😝

So incredibly heartbroken over the news about peep.

He was one of my favourite rappers, and I don’t believe that there’s enough words in the world to describe how much of an amazing, strong, talented person he was. He helped me through some of my hardest times with his lyrics, and I will forever thank him for that.

Rest easy, lil’ peep. You’ll forever be one of my biggest inspirations.

STAN POST: U-KISS

I love U-KISS so much except my bias groups I can’t even. Do not even keep on reading if you don’t like word ‘underrated’.

First of all, I blame myself for getting to know U-KISS by some misheard lyrics videos. But it’s also the blame of mass media - U-KISS is so underrated and it is not the last time I will say it today. My first song of that AWESOME group was Believe and I quickly got onto the next ones. Believe is still my jam. I’ll never get bored of it.

Originally posted by sailorjupitrr

U-KISS is most probably so underrated because they have no boyish concepts, they’re real men - and what’s on top now is being all swaggy and/or cute (referring to BTS, EXO, Seventeen…I don’t say it’s bad, I like them too). But hello! U-KISS is one of the most hilarious groups (Weekly Idol, everyone) and they have some AMAZING vocals - Soohyun, Hoon, Kevin? Like, hear Soohyun hitting the high note, Quit Playing or Tick Tock if you want ro check. Shivers guaranteed. Also, Eli and AJ are great rappers, so was Dongho, that is, before he left. THEY DO DESERVE MORE RECOGNITION. 

Originally posted by raynleila

My bias has always been and will always be Hoon, whose voice makes me shiver. Every. Single. Time. His voice is always in my top k-pop voices. And just a bonus that to me he is TOO handsome. And how he laughed on Weekly Idol (XDD). LOVING EVERYTHING OF HIM.

Originally posted by dongwoosenpai

I don’t even know what to write about their songs. U-KISS is the only group in the world which I love all songs of and each one could be my favourite. Believe, Tick Tock, Quit Playing, Playground, Neverland, Stop Girl, She’s Mine, Doradora, Standing Still…And all must-be-known hits, Bingeul Bingeul, Manmanhani, Dancing Floor (bit less known tho). And of course 0330 with the legendary line Don’t deny our r squared pi (I really need a T-shirt with that line). Just fist notes of Bingeul Bingeul make me dance, and Quit Playing is the first song ever I’ve created a choreography for. If you don’t know any U-KISS songs, you shoul definitely check them out.

Originally posted by jaeseopshi

Ignore the fact that U-KISS actually stands for Ubiquitous Korean Idol International Super Star. I’m waiting for their comeback more than for anything, now with Jun nearly becoming my bias (if I didn’t love Hoon so much). Do I wish for too much? If they do comeback, please give them a lot of support - they really deserve it. U-KISS’ dances (Neverland, everyone, it is known as one of the most complicated k-pop choreos), songs, members - all things are perfect. Why, then, are there so few Kiss Mes and other-fandom supporters?

Originally posted by kiraukissable

I hope U-KISS will recieve recognition they deserve if they comeback (or even if they don’t!). Love to all Kiss Mes if there are any of them left, loyal to that fabulous group.

Thanks for your attention.

Love xxxx

anonymous asked:

Bap?

Of course I know a bit about BAP, but I don’t know the members or enough of their songs sadly :(

First song Youtube redirected me to: Honeymoon, which I haven’t heard yet so here we go!

Do I like it? Yeah! The aesthetics are so cool! The song is catchy! I only wish there was more dancing because BAP seem like AMAZING dancers, and also I’m not really feeling the mullets haha. But the boy with the blue mullet has such a nice voice!

Would I listen to more of them? Yes! I love my rookies, but I need to get into more of the senior 2010-2014 debuted groups.

Who would be my favourite member? Who is wavy brown bangs at the end? He’s very cute. And I like the rapper with the deep voice. He starts the second verse in One Shot?

If there’s a music video to it, did it catch my attention? Yes its so pretty! Where did they film it? It looks so gorgeous wherever they are. And what did the goldfish do them I wanna know haha

Have I heard of them before, but haven’t realized it? Yes! I only know Youngjae, and I know they have members named Himchan and Zelo but I don’t know their faces. Other songs I’ve heard by them are Wake Me Up which I LOVE, as well as One Shot and Skydive which I love the MVs for.

Thank you for the ask!

I know I kind of missed Oak’s leaving of Hamilton, but I just wanna say that he was one of my FAVOURITE original cast members. His range is astonishing, his vocal acting raised up his roles to real highlights of the show, and I miss him already. I hope he gets the lead roles he so richly deserves in the future, tbh, he’s not only a wonderful singer (and rapper!) but also just a stellar actor.

SMTM5: EPISODE 7

I have gone through all the stages of grief and bereavement. Spoilers ahead as always. 

1. Shock. I saw Chulgu read a book and smile and laugh. And it was mostly when he was dissing Jaewon. A perfect example of me feeling very happy and quite sad at the same time. Also: their behind-the-scenes photoshoot video was kind of adorable for a bunch of scrappy rappers. 

2. Denial. Jaewon’s gone. Woe. Well, okay I’m not a delusional fan. He deserved to be eliminated in this episode for all his mistakes. His final performance was great but he was completely overshadowed by Simon and Gray (who sometimes has the voice of a fucking angel). 

3. Anger. First Juno and Swan. Then BeWhy and CJamm. Then Jaewon and Chulgu. I definitely cried ‘Nooooooo!’ at my screen more than once. I’m vaguely frustrated by BeWhy because his rap feels off-rhythm to me sometimes but 5 seconds later, it will be back on track and amazing. 

4. Bargaining. I really liked Donutman. His rapper alias and his rapping. I still can’t quite believe we lost him, Jaewon and G2 in the same episode. Here’s hoping Mnet bring them all back for stage performances during the Finals. They should also bring Hash Swan and fly Juno back. No, I will never let that go. I will bring it up in every post. Haha.

5. Depression. I seriously wanted to see Jaewon make it to the semi-finals solely so he could perform with Bobby. Just because. But alas, it will never happen now. You know, watching SMTM 4 and 5 has really made me appreciate Bobby’s win in 2014. Even if you don’t like him or his style, it’s hard to deny that he’s a dynamic performer who is a lot more exciting to watch than a few of these current contestants. On a side note: Gun and his mama made me cry and I’m pretty sure he was always going to win with that kind of emotional performance. 

6. Testing.  CJamm and BeWhy are still great but I have yet to see a standout performance from either of them lately. I’m so interested to see how they do in their next performances because I’m prepared to drop one of them for Reddy. 

7. Acceptance. I like all the remaining rappers but if I’m honest, Flowsik does have something different and special, even if he’s not as versatile as the others. I kind of want a Reddy/Flowsik final and that idea just came out of nowhere. Reddy was my favourite performer in Episode 7. I hope he stays because he’s a bit of a dark horse, creeping up from behind while we’re all focused on the others. 

8. Bring on the next round. I’m Reddy and mentally stable for it.
