i like it when korra is vulnerable


Don’t pretend you know what it felt like. The Avatar is adored by millions! I was cast aside by my own parents, like I meant nothing to them! How could I just stand by and watch the same thing happen to my nation when it needed someone to guide it? 

You wanted to create a place where you and your people would never be vulnerable again. I may not have been an orphan, but believe me, I understand what it feels like to be afraid. After I was poisoned, I would’ve done anything to feel in control.


MD: Despite Prince Wu’s obnoxiousness and arrogance, he’s a good guy underneath. We wrote him to be goofy and to annoy Mako, but when he has his breakdown on the fake thrown in the restaurant in episode three, he showed his vulnerable side, and his character gained some more depth. It’s always fun to write for characters like this, who don’t have any social filters and say and do whatever they like.

BK: As you can see above, Prince Wu went through a lot of version in the concept stage. In most of them he seemed too cool, even if it was a dorky sort of cool. I kept pushing to make him more feeble, with less of a chiseled jawline. Above is the final version of our fancy-pants gadabout, Prince Wu, built on the bones of Ryu’s concept, but with a revised head based on some concepts I did. I am particularly happy with his fabulously coiffed bangs. Prince Wu concept on far left by Lauren Montgomery. Other Prince Wu concepts by Ki-Hyun Ryu.
