BTS reactions to a foreigner speaking perfect Korean
A/N: I love when the boys are shook. so this was really fun to write! Thanks for requesting!!! -amelia
He is on your level. He starts throwing out random english words trying to impress you after you impressed him with your fluency. “Pizza! P-I-Z-Z-A. I love pizza!” You also love pizza, and share your feelings for the food in korean. Jin and you are just having a fun time joking around and his english skills are actually impressing you quite a bit.
He’s a lil salty because he had mentally prepared to utter a few words to you in english and now he’s not prepared for a whole other conversation. He makes it through, a little exasperated at the end but he still enjoyed conversing with you. Annoyed but intrigued that you were so intelligent and he loved what you said about his music, making that annoyance wash away.
You had him fooled. When you walk up he immediately goes ‘Oh hello~” but when you begin to say your reply in korean, his face completely alters into a ginormous smile. He hardly lets you get a word in as he praises your speaking ability, then he moves onto your hair and realizes since you can communicate with him… he should let you say a few more words but it was hard to remember the format of a fan meet since he was looking at a beautiful foreigner.
Namjoon always feels a close bond to international armies, as he could communicate the best with them. Even though you knew korean he wanted to continue talking to you in english, to impress not only his members but so the K-amrys could also be impressed. His talk with you was long and sweet. He praised your intellect and joked about the other members, who were side eyeing because they knew something was up with your laughs.
He tossed you the softest smile as you approached him and he greeted you very politely in english. After he said hello he looked kind of lost, but you saved the conversation explaining you were fluent. He laughed out loud because he was relieved, he loves international armies but it’s easier for him to express himself in korean. He said you had a different style to you, and he liked talking to someone refreshing.
Every army Taehyung meets is greeted with the same amount of AHHHH. He was super cute and bubbly with you until you started speaking korean and he was just stunned. He wasn’t expecting that. After he got over the initial shock, and you finished laughing at his shocked expression he went back to being AHHHHH, but this time, in korean.
CAUGHT OFF GUARD. His high school career of english lessons flashed before his eyes in a blur and all of the sudden he snaps back to reality and your speaking korean? He needs a minute. On this day, Jungkook was definitely Jungshook.
You weren’t suppose to leave. I wasn’t suppose to be in the pain I am right now. We were suppose to be together doing everything we loved to do, like go on random trips to random places and eat all the food we loved. I’d be holding your hand as we drove, and sneak over the occasional kisses. We would have our amazing dates where we would dress up, as well as our staying in dates, where we would watch all your favorite shows and movies. Even though I didn’t like some, you know I would always do anything for you. We would have our late night conversations about the most random things like aliens and mermaids. Or about the universe and how we both believed we were soulmates. I’d be admiring the sleeping figure in my arms as your breathing evened out. I’d be observing you as you slept, and not to be creepy at all, but I would always do it any chance I got because dear God, you were so perfect and so unaware of it. I could have sworn you were the one. You brought so much happiness to my life and you made it complete. You encouraged me and believed in me when no one else did. But what happened? How did I end up in the corner of my room sobbing as you left and took my life with you? How did it end like this?
I can’t thank you all so much for making my experience on Tumblr a great one. As a thank you, (and because I’m at 516 followers) here’s a massive appreciation post for all the people on here who have made this place extra-special for me.
Each of the people on this list has somehow made my day (and my dash) super awesome and made my experience on tumblr extra-special. Even if you don’t really know me all that well, or at all, know you’re here for a reason! THANK YOU ALL! (I even tried to do proper grammar for @dagurdewhite)
Remember that this list is not in order and I may have forgotten some people (I hope not haha) so bear with me here.
Also, not everyone got a big long-ass description because I didn’t have time to write for everyone.
media seems to do such a terrible job at representing people like me and same goes for many fic writers who try to base their characters on these characters shown in media. Here are some basic do’s and and don’t’s to writing fat characters!
make your character in love with food- they’re allowed to eat like everyone else, but not every real fat person has an obsession over food. The rule can get iffy if your fat character is a cook.*
make your character the center of jokes- everyone has something “funny” about them, but don’t make your fat character constantly make jokes about their own weight. Fat people get enough bullshit from skinny people about their weight already.
make your character incredibly unfit- there are real fat people who are incredibly athletic! their weight may be from genetics or from proper muscle building (not the muscle building we’re groomed to think is right in society). The choices your character makes is what affects their athleticism, not their weight
make your character the Depressed One- yes, fat people do get upset over their body. Many go through horrible diets to try and get slim. It takes years for real fat people to get over it and realize their body is horrible gross. Their weight can simply be because of genetics, not because of how much they eat.
make your character’s arc about things involving their weight- unless your fat character ABSOLUTELY needs to involve food, don’t make this their entire character arc. There are so many cooler things you can do with your character; sexuality, friends/family, simplifying the heroes journey, etc. make your character exciting! make them relatable!
make your character the token fat character- the real world has many types of people, the fantasy world should not be too different from this fact. Your characters should always show diversity, and sometimes repetition is good when its the right character type.
*making your fat character a chef can be a risky move. think about why your fat character is a chef. was it because they’re the fat character? or is there something that influenced them to become a chef? choose your answer carefully
make your character’s interests diverse- I like food! but i also like many other things! video games, bike riding, painting, singing, give your character varying interests! maybe your character has that one thing they love above all else. the game Fire Emblem: Awakening has always been my go-to favorite thing, what’s your character’s?
make your character an individual- develop their personality! how would your character react to seeing the ASPCA commercials? What’s their reaction when a family member dies? When their favorite artist is performing in town? Are there songs that make them emotional? What do they do to de-stress? Do they stim? There’s PLENTY you can say about your character that isn’t just “I love food.”
make your character as realistic as possible- just as skinny people are diverse, so are fat people. When you’re describing a fat character, don’t default to “pear shaped.” there are proportionate and disproportionate fat people. maybe they have fatter thighs than they do calves, their stomach pops out but they don’t have “bingo wings,” maybe their chin does that weird thing or maybe it doesn’t (this happens to skinny people, too!). and don’t forget stretch marks. they are real and they are not “taboo.”
write your character as if they’re like any other- it all boils down to one thing: the similarities and differences. I’m an XL and my friend is an XS, we both enjoy oversized hoodies! She would wear hoodies in the summer but I would rather walk around shirtless (if society didn’t tell us boobs are bad.) I would never wear short shorts when exercising because they ride up my thighs. Your fat character can act just the same as your skinny one(s).
