I was not ready for any of these photos…like is that fucking MARK TUAN?!?! Na that’s got to be his double or some shit cause I DO NOT REMEMBER MARK LOOKING THIS GOOD. He is really trying to be my bias wrecker so badly…like no stop.
dark rc would you please consider writing about how victor (and the rest of the Russian skate team) had a feud with the Russian hockey team bc of their constant flirting and attentions towards yuuri (who was completely oblivious at the war waging for his heart)??
This has been sitting in my inbox for over a month and I apologize for that, nonny! I wanted to try my hand at breaking through this writer’s block and this prompt was ripe for the taking. It’s not my best work by any stretch, but it’s something at least! I hope you enjoy.
There are few things that give Yuri pleasure—the taste of accomplishment like cinnamon sugar on the back of his tongue after landing a quad; having a comeback so cutting that he practically draws blood; that soft murrf a cat makes when it decides it trusts him; the little green screenshot arrow appearing next to Otabek’s name in Snapchat—but they all pale in comparison to whenever the Russian hockey team visits the rink.
Amazing imagines!! I love them so much!! ❤❤ I think you've even written enough to start a masterlist soon! If you ever need any ideas/ideas for a rainy day here's a couple. However, please don't feel like I'm expecting you to write all these right now!! It's more of a compiled list of ideas for you if you're having a slow request day/just want to write them -Jealous Betty -Beach day for the gang/Betty in a swimsuit/Jughead in a swimsuit -Bughead napping together -Betty's parents walk in on them
Hey! These are all awesome! I think I’m gonna go with the hickey role reversal for today! Let’s give it a try!
School was ending in about a week, and summer was so close Jughead could practically smell the sunscreen and taste the countless milkshakes he would be devouring.
That being said…
It was hot.
And by hot he didn’t mean, warm with a light breeze, he meant crack an egg on it, it was smoking. He was sweating almost all the time and even with the windows open the Riverdale classrooms were boiling. Unfortunately for him that meant his typical wardrobe of flannels and jeans just wasn’t gonna cut it, and he most definitely was not gonna show up to school in one of those ridiculous tank tops with the sleeves cut down all the way to the bottom, he would leave that to Reggie and chuck. Tools.
Anyway, figuring out what to wear, that was still comfortable for him but also kept him cool enough so he didn’t pass out was a struggle. He wasn’t a shorts guy, unless they were bathing suit bottoms and he was at the beach, so he stuck to his jeans, these ones had a few holes so that should help atleast a little, digging in his drawer he pulled out the only light weight t shirt he had, it was a simple white v neck, nothing too crazy, but also something he normally wouldn’t wear without something else to cover it up, at this point he couldn’t care less, it was too damn hot.
“Looking good” he turned with a smile, meeting the eyes of the gorgeous blonde who had come out of nowhere. Okay so maybe there was one positive thing about the heat, Betty’s wardrobe had to adjust accordingly as well and man was he grateful for the tiny dresses that showed off her gorgeous long legs. Today she had on a white sundress covered in pink and red flowers, it skimmed her mid thigh and he fought the urge to run his fingers along the bare skin. As soon as he was about to retort with a witty comeback, her eyes got wide
“Oh my god” she looked horrified.
Whipping around to look behind him, confused as to what had her in such a state of panic she repeated a little more panicky
“Oh my god.”
“Betty? what the hell? What’s the matter?” She seemed to be at a loss for words and suddenly two more of the gang had arrived, both wearing Similar expressions to Bettys.
“What in sexy time?!” Veronica was practically bouncing she seemed so excited.
Kevin was moving his hands to jugheads neck, before he dodged them with a glare
“What are you all talking about.”
Suddenly Archie was rounding the corner zeroing in on Jughead
“Hey ma… hey! Nice hickey dude! Way to go” he slapped a hand to jugheads shoulder, smiling.
“What! What hick..what are you.” He was twisting trying to find the offending mark. He glanced up at Betty who was beet red and was desperately trying to hide her laughter.
“See Betty, I told you. It’s totally normal to give a boy a hickey, That’s so funny, Betty was just asking me about this at our sleepover last week.” Veronica said laughing handing Jughead her hand mirror.
He snatched the mirror and held it up to his neck. Sure enough, there was a purple mouth shaped bruise on his neck. Snapping the mirror shut he shook his head
“Bacon grease, it splattered.”
Everyone eyed him sceptically as Cheryl walked over
“Oh please, like you cook. Just fess up Jughead, who’s the mystery woman?” The redhead asked.
“There’s no one, you’re all nuts.”
The conversation was stopped short by the first period bell.
“Dude, were totally talking about this at lunch,” Archie said grinning
“Duh” Veronica added throwing a wave to Betty, leaving behind Jughead and Betty as Kevin kissed Betty on the cheek before walking off with Cheryl.
There was a moment of silence Betty smirking at her bright red boyfriend
“So… a tshirt today? No flannel.”
He stared at her dryly
“Wait till all of our friends find out what a little minx you are. You won’t be laughing then.”
Betty shrugged, smiling guiltily and turning on her heels to walk the other way , she quickly turned around and added
“No one told you to wear the worlds sexiest tshirt the day after our two month anniversary festivities.”
She winked and practically skipped off.
He slammed his head into the locker gently. She was gonna be the death of him.
By the time lunch came around the entire school was talking about Jugheads hickey, the rumors were everywhere,
Jughead was seeing Ethel,
Jughead was seeing a girl from central
And of course, Archie and jughead were a couple (that one was Reggie. Tool.)
Slamming his tray on the table besides Betty, she jumped up smiling and meeting his eyes.
The rest of the gang was already there and they instantly turned the conversation to hickeys.
Cheryl of course instigating it
“Well it has to be someone who’s aggressive, obvi, look at that mark.”
Veronica nodded “agreed. I could never do something that good, and I’ve been told I’m a pretty fiery lover.” She flipped her dark hair , smiling.
Cheryl nodded “and we all know how intense I am, but that’s good, even for me.”
Kevin said something that had Archie practically dying he was laughing so hard.
“And we all know it can’t be Betty, no offense bets but we all kind of agree, your not really the most passionate lover.”
Before Jughead could even think he had opened his mouth “try again, she’s pretty much the definition of passionate.”
Everyone at the table seemed to have stopped time, slowly turning their heads to stare at the pair in front of them. Betty was blushing so hard they thought she might explode and jughead was kind of just lost in his own idiocy.
“B..Betty?” Archie squeaked out.
“No way you’re lying.” This time it was kevin.
And Cheryl and Veronica were just staring, shocked.
Suddenly something in Betty snapped and she turned to Kevin.
“Actually, yes it was me. As quiet as you think I am, I am very very attracted to my boyfriend, therefore sometimes I get carried away. Can we please stop this conversation now.” She stabbed a piece of lettuce with her fork.
The table went dead silent for thirty seconds before all hell broke loose.
“How did you get it in that shape?”
Dropping her head to the table, she sighed as Jugheads arm came to rest around her shoulder, tugging her into his side.
“No questions, were dating, going on two months. That’s all you’ve gotta know.” The lazy tone in his voice left no room for argument and the table went silent once again.
Squeezing his hand in hers, she smiled up at him. This was far from over and they both knew that, but for right now, their friends were just gonna have to wait. They were happy, and that’s what matters.
YOI re-do AU where all 6 of the Barcelona GPF skaters and their coaches are sent back to just after the Sochi GPF medal ceremony.
Phichit is at his apartment in Detroit, snuggled down in a nest of blankets on Yuuri’s bed and prowling all his social media accounts, tearing apart anyone who says anything bad about his best friend’s performance. That’s when he feels a strike of blinding pain to the base of his skull, as if he’s been struck by lightning. His eyes roll back into his head and he faints. And when he wakes up with a startled gasp about ten minutes later, he looks around in confusion, wondering why he’s not back in his parents’ home in Bangkok.
Otabek is back at his home rink in Almaty. After failing to qualify for the Finals, he and his coach had decided it would be a good change of pace to return to his own country, and he’s working feverishly so that he can do well in his country’s Nationals and make a comeback at Worlds. He’s in the middle of practicing a step sequence when he feels the blinding pain of his memories coming back, and he falls to the ice with a dull thump. A cry of alarm goes up from his rinkmates as they skate over to see if he’s okay. His coach’s accompanying thump from the rinkside makes the skaters panic even more as they go over to see what’s going on.
The other four, luckily, are already in their hotel rooms when it happens, getting ready for the banquet.
Yuuri was grabbing a quick nap at the time, so he’s lucky enough to not feel the pain of his memories returning, but he’s startled awake when Celestino comes barging into his hotel room.
(Yuuri always makes sure Celestino has a copy of his room key, in case he has an anxiety attack or doesn’t want to leave his room before a competition.)
Celestino’s expression is frantic when it lands on a confused Yuuri, who’s trying to process all the memories flooding through him.
They both immediately know the other has also gotten the memories, and Celestino sweeps Yuuri into a crushing hug. He’d been so worried about his fragile-hearted skater after his mess of a performance, and he’s just so relieved now to know that Yuuri will continue skating, even if he does eventually leave Celestino’s rink.
Yuuri is shy as he requests Celestino to keep coaching him until the end of the season - this time, he plans to pick himself up and do better at Nationals, so that he can qualify for Worlds. He wants to show the world what an amazing coach Celestino had been, and that Viktor wasn’t the only one responsible for turning Yuuri into the skater he is today.
You both met when you were trainees, you were a newbie and really nervous cuz all of these people were so talented and there you were
Taeyong saw you all nervous and internally blushed at how pretty you were but kept a strong face and totally ignored you
He kept on sneaking glances at you though, when you weren’t paying attention but other times he would pretend you weren’t even there
You would sometimes get reprimanded by your coach or your trainers and he would want to fight them and protect you but he has to conceal dont feel because he doesn’t want any other distraction during his trainee life
But then he saw you getting closer to other trainee members, especially Yuta and became so jealous that he became really cold towards you, like lowkey bullied you
Like that one time you asked for the directions to the boys’ dorm (cuz u wanted to give yuta his vitamin water) and he told you to ‘find it yourself’ and shoulder bumped you
you almost fell
He felt really bad about it the whole day though and wanted to apologise but had too much of an ego to do so and he was still pissed that you were closer to Yuta than him
He didn’t know why but he was always agitated around you two and just wanted to push yuta away
Your debut was nearing and you were in the practice room working on your dance moves.You had improved a lot and everyone loved you. The only problem was Taeyong. He was so beautiful but so cold you almost shivered every time he was around. Yuta was friendly and out going but it was Taeyong you wanted to get close to
You felt down as you lost your balance on the cold wooden floor
“aisshhh how does he even have friends” you said to yourself while massaging your foot
“there are ice packs in the fridge you know” you heard a voice. Turning around you saw Taeyong standing against the door, his face make up free and glowing against the brilliant lights of the room
You stood up slowly but Taeyong was quick to react. “Stay” he said as he lunged towards the small refrigerator and pulled out an ice pack. He walked over to you and placed the cool material on your ankle
You stared at how beautiful his skin was and how ethereal he looked up close. He looked up into your eyes and you blinked. He was close, too close
“Thanks,” you stuttered, your breath held in. It felt as if you would implode
“You should be more careful,” he said. He looked so soft, so human. You wanted to touch his face and play with the glistening strands of his hair. How would anyone believe that this angelic boy was actually so cold and closed off
You both sat in silence, his hand still holding the ice pack over your foot. You inhaled deeply, wanting to escape this situation but wanting it never to end
“You know I-” you both started and he smiled to himself. “You can go first”
“No its ok” you smiled at him. He stopped to look at you for a while as his heart beat sped up
“I’m not doing anything this Saturday, do you want to join me for a coffee?” he asked. You nodded instantly which caused him to laugh. “So cute” he whispered to himself and you looked away, blushing
Taeyong seemed like a different person that day. Laughing at your jokes and smiling at you, he even held your hand when walking you to the dorms. You kissed his cheek as you left. He smiled like an idiot the rest of the night
Thats when it all began, Taeyong and you
Taeyong had never even imagined that you’d say yes when he asked you to be his girlfriend, upon asking “didn’t you like Yuta?” and hearing your loud “NO HE’S JUST A FRIEND” he almost cried with happiness and also at his idiocy that how stupid he had been
With Taeyong its endless messages and calls, he always so bored when you’re not around or when you’re too busy to reply and attend his calls
You both sneak out of your dorms to just walk together and eat together
His day gets a hundred times better when he has plans with you and annoys yuta by asking him what kind of sneakers suit him
“Taeyong they’re all white”
“But do you like the ones with the blue logo on them or should I get new ones with a darker blue logo”
Such a mom towards you tbh
Like when you weren’t wearing your coat he kept on nagging you to wear his or “should’ve worn a coat” “why don’t you take care of yourself”
Offers you his food and you’d be dying cuz you’ve eaten so much but he’s like “no eat”
Doesn’t appreciate it when you’re on a diet because that means you cant eat out with him
Sulks a lot when you don’t pay him enough attention
Like he’ll become to quiet and needy and attach himself to your arm and look at you with puppy dog eyes
“love me y/n”
loves hugging you, enjoys your warmth and your smell
loves the fact that your smaller than him and a lot softer
cooks for you a lot like you’ll just be at your dorm and he’ll show up with homemade food that his mom taught him
He wants to explore all kinds of food with you and wants you to have all the food he loves and vice versa
he takes an active part in celebrating your life like when you debuted he showed up with cake and candles to celebrate it
and on your birthdays he goes out of his way and has a surprise party for you, such a cutie
he’s so dumb around you too like people think he’s a suave playboy of sorts when in reality he’s just a really confused and excited pup
like he’s really happy around you and also really clumsy and he loses his energy really quickly
he prefers having a day in with you and just cuddling and watching movies
STUDIO GHIBLI MARATHONS
WITH A LOT OF FOOD
Whenever you’re sick or sad or worried his mom mode activates and he tries making you feel as comfortable as he can
He can’t stand you crying and is always there when you’re having a hard time
The good thing about him is that he’s always there to cheer you up and hear you out and give you good advice
Taeyong is a really insecure person so he’s always scared you might leave him and gets depressed really easily
Especially in the first few days of his debut he was getting a lot of hate and ended up being really closed off and didn’t even reply to your texts or calls. He thought that the world, including you hated him
But then you had to physically go up to his dorm and comfort him and he just laid there in your lap talking about nothing
He was a little assured then that you wouldn’t leave but still tries really hard to make you happy so you wouldn’t leave
And you won’t leave him because you love him to bits
You two fight sometimes on the fact that he can become really closed off when he’s depressed
And especially when he’s jealous
Because of his fear of losing you he becomes jealous really easily and gets all cold and mean and you both fight about it
but he ends up giving in and cuddling you at night because he still needs all the warmth, it gets cold on his side of the bed
makes you pancakes in the morning to have you forgive him
and then you give him a long lecture on how you’re his and no one else’s and his smile is so content and oh wow your boyfriend is so beautiful
He loves it when you sit on his lap and he pulls you closer to his chest and nuzzles his nose in the crook of your neck
and then it turns into a make out session
his kisses are so soft and he holds you so close and treats you so delicately and he always smells so nice
gets annoyed when your dorm is messy and goes on a cleaning rampage, its annoying sometimes but its just how he is
You both go on many long walks along the river and late night snacks at the convenience store
He wants to travel the world with you someday
Like you both going to Kyoto for your honeymoon
and then smacks himself thinking that you both are too young to get married
daydreams about you a lot
when he’s really busy with his comeback he feels as if he’s missing something and then remembers he hasn’t texted you
and then goes like oh fuckOH FUCK while looking for his phone and finding many texts from you saying “good luck” and “i know you’re busy but dont forget to eat and drink water” “dont overwork yourself”
and he smiles so wide and jaehyun in the back whistles and he ignores him and just keeps on smiling
like a literal text from you to him can brighten up his day so much
your relationship is so slow and peaceful and he’s so passionate and loving
he’s never bored around you and sleeps peacefully next to you
Taeyong is a bottom in bed, he prefers you taking control and being all dominant
He loves it when you’re confident and bold
but when he’s mad or jealous and wants to punish you god almighty i hope you’re alive child
but most of the time its slow and passionate and you both end up cuddling after
he later told you that he bullied you the whole time cuz he had a crush on you and you couldn’t stop laughing
“let it go ok”
“BUT YOU MADE MY LIFE HELL CUZ YOU LIKED ME AWWWWW”
And then he blushed and his ears went red
He wants to adopt a dog with you, he would legit marry you if the company allowed him to
cuz with you he feels like he’s home, he feels accepted and loved
When you woke up that Wednesday morning you knew something was off. You
weren’t feeling quite yourself. Yet, you decided to go to work at STAR Labs. On
your way there you were coughing from time to time and shivering but you were
in the middle of the winter so you guessed you were just cold.
“Morning guys” you greeted everyone as you walked into the cortex.
“Wow, what happened?” Cisco asked the moment he saw you.
“Nothing, why?” You replied sitting on a chair.
“You look awful” he pointed out.
“Thank you?” You chuckled. “I think I might be catching a cold, but don’t
worry, it will be over in a couple of days” you shrugged it off as you turned
on the laptops.
Your work at the labs was your passion. You were a robotic engineer
hired by Harrison Wells. Of course, that was before the particle accelerator exploded
and created all those metahumans, before you al found out Wells wasn’t exactly
Wells and…basically, before life turned complicated for everyone.
When the accelerator exploded those who didn’t die just left the place. All
except Cisco, Caitlin and you. They were like a family to you, they took you in
the moment you put a feet into the facility just a few days after arriving all
alone to Central City. You were from San Francisco but working for Harrison
Wells was something you couldn’t say no to, so there you were. Four years
“Sorry I’m late, I got caught in traffic” Caitlin said walking into the
cortex with a cup of coffee from Jitters on her hand. “Wow, (Y/N), are you ok?”
She asked when she saw your face, causing Cisco’s laugh.
“C’mon! Do I look that bad?” You asked frowning.
“I think you should go home and rest” was Caitlin reply.
“It’s just a cold, I’m sure” you sighed.
But it wasn’t. By the middle of the day you have been told to go home by
everyone who came to the labs: Wells, Jesse, Cisco, Caitlin…everyone. It was frustrating.
Even Barry sent you a text from Star City telling you to go home. Of course you
didn’t listen to them since you didn’t feel that bad, but when it was already
dark outside you forced yourself to go home after Caitlin told you had fever.
When you woke up the next day, you had to call Caitlin to tell her you wouldn’t
be going to work today. You felt even worse than the day before.
“Don’t worry, we have everything covered here, I promise” she assured
you before hanging up.
Still you felt bad for staying at home. Not just because you wouldn’t be
able to help if something came up, but also because today Barry would be coming
back from Star City after five days and you wouldn’t see him after how much you
had missed him. That wasn’t strange since you had spent every single day with
him since the moment he came in still in a coma. But it wasn’t until a few
months ago that you had the courage to tell how you felt about him, just to
find out he felt the same way all along.
Ever since, you were dating, which had turned out to be the biggest
adventure of your life. He was fun, smart, sweet and loving, but he was also so
protective and stubborn that it got to your nerves. You understood he was The
Flash, a hero, but he didn’t understand you could make your own choices. Still,
you loved him like you never loved anyone before and you couldn’t wait to see
By noon you finally got a text from him saying he was back at STAR labs:
Back at the labs, how are you
feeling? – Barry
You smiled a little at the text and sighing, wishing you had been there
to hug him and kiss him, ignoring Cisco’s complains.
Feverish and missing you L - (Y/N)
I missed you too. I’ll go visit asap.
Love you, xx – Barry
You smiled even more when you read he would visit. You imagined he would
go eventually but sometimes he was too busy to do it, so you were so happy to know
you would be seeing him that day after all. Putting your phone down, you
covered yourself up and sighed looking up at the ceiling. You coughed a little
and closed your eyes, falling asleep almost immediately.
A couple of hours later you were woken up by the sound of your door
closing. You rolled around in bed trying to get your phone but it was too far
so you just gave up and hide your head under the covers.
“Sorry, I didn’t mean to wake you” a very familiar voice said.
Immediately, you popped your head out and there he was. Barry Allen was
standing at the end of your bed with a bag on his hand and a smile on his face.
A smile that you returned but soon you were back under the covers.
“Go away! I look awful!” You exclaimed remembering how you must be
looking like at the moment.
His laugh echoed the room and soon you felt the bed sinking by your
side, letting you know he was just there, so you stuck your head back out.
“I haven’t seen my girlfriend in five days, I think she looks gorgeous
no matter what” he said.
“You really know what a girl wants to hear, Allen” you smiled.
He chuckled while you sat up on the bed and pulled your hair into a bun.
Despite what he said, you knew your aspect wasn’t the best. When you were done,
you looked at him just to see that he had been staring the whole time which
made you blush.
“I missed you” you said, making him smile.
“I missed you too” he replied before leaning in and wrapping his arms
around you in a tight hug.
“I’m all sweaty” you chuckled.
“I don’t care” he smiled into your neck as he squeezed you. “How many
times have you hug me and kiss me after being running around the city for
hours?” He added.
“True” you smiled before closing your eyes.
You had missed him so much, his hugs, his smell, his embrace. All of
him. He pulled away and placed a strand of hair behind your ear before leaning
towards your lips but you placed a hand over his mouth, earning a confused look
“I’m sick!” You explained. He took your hand off his mouth and kissed it
“Then it’s a good thing I can’t get sick, right?” He smirked. You narrowed
your eyes at him but didn’t have time for a comeback before he kissed you.
If you thought you missed him was because you hadn’t kissed him yet. Finally
you felt like home again, like you were complete when his lips met yours.
“It’s a really good thing” you smiled when you pulled away. “How was
Star City?” You asked with a frown.
“Complicated” he sighed. “They were all devastated after…Laurel” he said
as he played with your hand. “She was amazing” he added.
“I know…I’m sorry” you whispered.
You never had the chance to meet Laurel Lance, aka the Black Canary, but
you had heard Cisco and Barry talk about her and you had an idea about the
amazing woman she was and how much she had done to protect Star City along with
Oliver and the Team Arrow.
“Anyway, I brought something” Barry said looking up at you, smiling
again. “But you can’t tell Caitlin or she would kill me”
“What is it?” You asked narrowing your eyes.
He smiled and took the plastic bag he had placed down on the floor. First,
he took out some water and chicken soup. You raised an eyebrow: why would
Caitlin kill him for that? Then he took out a chocolate ice-cream pack.
“Oh god…is it with cookies?” You asked with your eyes wide opened.
“My girl deserves the best” he winked.
“Oh my, I love you so much!” You exclaimed taking the ice-cream from his
hands. “Oh, I need a sp-“ before you could finish the sentence, Barry was back
from the kitchen with a spoon. “I’ll never get used to that” you laughed. Immediately
you started eating it. “You want some?” You finally asked.
“I thought you’d never ask” he said taking a spoon out of his pocket and
laying down next to you, sinking the spoon into the ice-cream.
[MAGAZINE INTERVIEW] 170519 SEUNGHOON FOR SINGLES KOREA JUNE ISSUE
Lee Seunghoon’s Confidence
Armed with confidence strengthened from experience, WINNER Lee Seunghoon’s existence appears even in swaying shadows. Discontinuous accidents, shattered time, and mad cheers made people forget his real self.
“After drinking all the coke / clink, only ice cubes are left / clink, the sound they make bumping around / it is clear // Words that couldn’t be delivered / rustle, in a pocket / a letter rustles / it is faint // But // in the place where someone leaves / behind, go / with time, leave / so that there is nothing left / not even a droplet of lingering / attachment” – Lee Seunghoon “Things Left Behind”
WINNER Lee Seunghoon shared his most recent poem that he wrote for his fans, which gained much attention, with SINGLES. He had written it carefully by hand and had a photo of it saved on his phone. The name of the poem is “Things Left Behind”. “I’ve been writing poems constantly. It’s not a big deal though. There are many similarities between raps and poems. I gathered up all the lyrics that didn’t fit into songs and all the memos I took after a good inspiration and there were quite a number.” He writes his worries, thoughts, emotions, and things he talks about with his friends. “I want to publish a collection of my poems with illustrations or photos that go with them. It would be nice if Mino drew them for me.” He quietly and carefully explained what kind of collection of poems he wants to publish. And then he added, “I don’t write poems to gain attention for revealing a hidden literary value. All of them are light enough to be easily seen on SNS. How wonderful is it that I can share what I have with others!?” This twenty-six-year-old man, who is humble but knows how to clearly state what he wants, enjoys new challenges. He wishes to make a surprise appearance on “Surprise” or any programs similar to it and become a moodmaker on “Yoo Heeyeol’s Sketchbook”. These wishes are not impossible as he made a surprise guest appearance on “Boni Hani” with Song Mino before. “I like fun things. When we prepare for a comeback and when we work on music, I always think about how to make things more enjoyable and how to make people laugh. I love to think up of something creative and original and use it onstage or during WINNER promotions. If I hadn’t become a member of WINNER, I think I would’ve worked at an advertising company.” His answer fit his nickname “Deputy Lee of YG Entertainment”.
It was possible to prove Lee Seunghoon’s passion during this promotion period. “We’re the first group in YG to promote for 8 weeks. Thanks to that, many windows have opened for us to communicate with our fans. It is physically tiring because of the many schedules but I’m not stressed. Every moment is enjoyable. Although he is smiling brightly right now, they had many worries while preparing for this comeback. “We were so burdened when we were filming our music videos in LA. We worried about whether we were walking on the right path.” However, after the release of “REALLY REALLY”, he was able to relieve some of those worries. It was thanks to the explosively positive response. “I think, in the end, our fans tell us whether we are doing well or not. A good response means it’s the right path.” As he is famous for his exceptional love for fans, he never stopped talking about them during the whole interview. It shouldn’t be a surprise since he has WINNER and their fanclub “INNERCIRCLE” tattooed on the back of his neck.
Lee Seunghoon stated that he worked on making music with Kang Seungyoon yesterday. Are you already preparing for the next comeback even though current promotions haven’t ended? “Whenever we end up having time off, the members gather in the recording studio without being asked. Truthfully, because ‘REALLY REALLY’ did so much better than we expected, we are feeling some burden. Yesterday, we talked about having fun working on the next songs without thinking about the results. It’s natural for the results to be good if the process of making the songs is fun.” There is nothing confirmed after promotions end. But it looks like there are many fun projects in his head. “I have thought about releasing a solo album. I will be able to show a completely different side of WINNER Lee Seunghoon. Right now, I have more fun being creative while doing WINNER activities. I’m really interested in fun ideas that can be empathized with others.” There is experience behind his flashes of thoughts. “Even with ordinary talent, once it gains strength from experience, it becomes eye-catching. That’s what happened to me. The obvious action of turning the mat received praises like ‘his adapting to the unexpected is brilliant’. Thanks to that, I gained confidence.” He is currently focusing on honestly sharing his thoughts. This applies to writing poems. “If I have something I want to do and if I can do it, I don’t hesitate. The other day, some of the staff members told me that they were in Jeju so I got on the plane as soon as my schedule ended. Experiences like that inspires many more good ideas. And I like doing things like that too.” There is a reason to look forward to WINNER’s next promotions- No, there are now many reasons to look forward to WINNER’s next promotions.
