i want to be in the winner's circle as do you

WINNER’S TATTOOS

Lee Seunghoon

I’ll start with the cutest tattoo. Seunghoon has the W from Winner’s logo with a circle to represent the Inner Circle

He also has a hand (?) in his hips

Song MinHo 

a crown

“oxygen”

“deuteronomy 28:1” in his chest

It’s a verse from bible who says “If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.”

“Be Nice” and “Be kind” in his shoulders.

Nam Taehyun

Taehyun is a big fan of Jean-Michel Basquiat, an african american neo-expressionist artist. He has his name on his left arm.

“Stay Gold” and the banana who was inspired in one of Basquiat works.

In his words: “I want to do everything with that mindset. ‘Stay Gold’ is that kind of word. it means the Golden Age. at the end on WIN, we received the title of Winner. since then, I’m spending my days very well. I think that’s what youth is. it’s the Golden Age that you can get only once in your whole life. I didn’t thought much about it and just followed my heart and got it tattooed on my wrist. I’m really happy that I could experience all these moments up until now.“

A bat on his right arm. Also inspired by Basquiat’s drawings.

My favorite, "I don’t do drugs, I am drugs”

A flower seems like it was made by Christophe Louis Quibe, a french illustrator. (i’m not sure)

“MIVIIXCLM” The roman numeral tattoo of Taehyun is from Jean-Michel Basquiat’s “Profit I” painting.

“baby baby” in a fancy font in his right arm.

A line

“South Buyers Club” inspired in “dallas buyers club”, the movie who gave an oscar to Jared Leto.

kurt cobain’s drawing of a guitarist.

jinwoo and seungyoon don’t have any tattoos yet.

EXO react to you playing a game with them one on one

Thank you for requesting! I really hope you enjoy it, @the-kyungbooty!


Xiumin: You would love playing soccer with Minseok - he would make sure to always play on your level. “Loser buys the winner ice cream afterward!” There’s the added bonus of watching him stretching before you play, too…

Luhan: This Ronaldo superfan would run circles around you at soccer, pulling out some tricks to impress during the game. Once in a while, he’ll make sure you get a chance to score on him, pleased when you really do. “How’d you get behind me?!”

Kris: He loves basketball more than anything, maybe even you - you really wouldn’t want to ask. He’d take you on seriously at first, so be prepared for some skills (and some showboating) before he starts playing around with you.

Suho: Golf can be insanely boring, but Suho would make sure you really enjoyed yourself with his encouragement. Reenacting the scene from Ghost, you’d get perfect lessons on how to play with his arms around you and hands over yours.

Lay: Though he has so many more interests, Yixing will surprise you with his skill and grace playing basketball, especially his ball handling tricks. Playing HORSE with you, he’d even pick you up around the knees to help you dunk the ball.

Baekhyun: Playing video games with Baek will be hilarious and fast-paced, though he will probably teasingly distract you any chance he gets. Expect squawks, shrieks, and any manner of other noises from him during the game.

Chen: After you’ve seen EXO bowling so many times on their own, Jongdae would love to take you one on one. A lighthearted game filled with his jokes and no punishments. “One more gutterball and I’ll hold the world record!”

Chanyeol: He always has fun, no matter what sport he’s playing or if he’s any good at it, so you’ll end up laughing on your knees as you play foot volleyball together. “What are you laughing for? I’m awesome at this!” His laughter joins yours.

D.O: No one hides quite like Kyungsoo. Games of hide and seek could go on for a while as he silently moves around the house. “You’re getting colder, jagi!” He’d laugh kindly as you spin around looking for the source of his voice.

Tao: He can get a little whiny when he doesn’t win, so it’s best to pick something he’s good at. If you agreed to spar with him one day, he’d end up using it as an excuse to show off. “Baobei, look at my new sword choreography!”

Kai: Never extremely competitive at sports, Jongin playing something light-hearted like butt basketball with you would be really fun. Plus, as a bonus, cuddles are guaranteed while you play. “You’re cheating! Sit back down!”

Sehun: He’s surprisingly competitive at ping pong and call himself “king of the paddle” when he gets one past you. If he loses, he’ll pout, but if he wins he’ll lord it over you, but only for a bit before he hugs you, so happy you played with him.

MOBB: It’s An Honour & We Want To Learn From GD&TOP, But We Don’t Want To Copy Them. We Think It’s Right To Not Become A Second Of Someone. 

Mino: It’ll Be A Lie If I Say There Isn’t Competition. We Are Both Rappers Who Write Songs So There Are Times When We Feel Competitive. When He [Bobby] Does Well Then It Also Motivates Me To Do Well. It’s Not Bad But A Positive Competition. That’s The Way We Improve & Learn From One Another. 

Bobby: If You Do Good, Then That Also Means iKON Does Good. 

Mino: When I Go Filming, [The Members] Chat With Me & Send Over Support Through Video Calls. Lee Seung Hoon Hyung Even Brought Coffee To The Set Although He Doesn’t Have Any Parts In The MV. I Think I Depend On My Members A Lot. 

YG (IS NO) FAMILY

YG has been selling us a Family concept since a long time ago now… Well I’m saying this now because I’m angry and sad and disappointed at everything right now and Minzy’s departure just triggered me. After this post I will probably go on a hiatus because I am SO done. I AM A FAN OF 2NE1 certified freaking blackjack nice to meet you. I am VIP and Inner Circle. I like and support other YG acts such as Epik High, PSY, Lee Hi, AKMU and IKON, aswell as solos and sub-units, right now I just want to say: YG is not a “Family”, at least not anymore. TOP has said it before maybe jokingly and all but it’s true that at the end of the day this is THEIR workplace and how THEY make a living. All of it IT’S JUST WORK, do it right and get payed, do it poorly and you’re finished, that’s how it is. After several years of training and promoting during her most precious years of youth GONG MINJI “decided” to not renew her contract with the so-called YG Family (“decided” because we’ve only heard one side of the story so we don’t actually know). Fans begged for Minzy solo activities during hiatus and got nothing in return and when I say nothing I mean NOTHING. The girl is talented and all so why? Being talented or not… that is not the issue here… The issue is YG. Since I’ve been here (in the fandom) for a while I know how his management is the absolute worst that lowers the self-esteem of the artists and spits on their spirit. We’ve seen it before and heard from the ARTISTS THEMSELVES!!! 1.Lee Hi has openly said that she had a really hard time during her 3 years hiatus. (THREE YEARS) 2. AKMU’s Chanhyuk had to say he wants to ENLIST TO THE ARMY literally giving up on any kind of comeback for more than a year in order to get a comeback sooner. 3.The well-known WINNER hiatus in which their passion got spit on and stepped on and their self-esteem lower than hell. (Nice one YG) 4. NOT ONLY THE 2 YEARS OF HIATUS WITHOUT ANY SOLO ACTIVITIES FOR MINZY BUT SINCE 2NE1 DEBUT!!!!!!!!!!!! I am very disappointed, very sad and most of all VERY TIRED. I’ll just leave for now so I can recover from this. I do not plan to stop being a blackjack and I will support Minzy if she wants to become a solo artist or a choreographer or a bartender whatever she does I want her to be happy and I want that for Bom, Dara and CL too. I want Lee Hi to have recognition for her amazing talent and Akmu to have comebacks (because I know they self-produce and have so much potential to show). I want Winner to stop being in the shadow of their seniors, juniors, their debut and their hiatus (yeah all of those shadows) so they can be able to show their true colors more. I will still support YG acts but I just need to get out there that I am not content with how they are managed. Lastly, I know there are a lot of pros from being a YG artist but at least for now there seem to be more cons. I just wish them all to be happy and stay healthy at this point… and last but not least to never lose their spark and passion for what they do and love themselves. That’s all. (This is my opinion I don’t expect you to agree but thank you for reading til here if u did. If u’re a Blackjack pls find strength, we’ll get through this for sure)

It is Cauthrien’s 51st Nameday! In a completely unrelated note, King Gareth Cousland of Ferelden has decided to host a Grand Tourney in Denerim to bring some hope and morale back into his Country, now that Corypheus is finally dead. 

He and Queen Anora invite participants from all corners of the Continent whom believe they have the strength and will to compete. Anyone can sign up and the games are set to go for days and days. Alongside the arena battles, there is also Jousting, Dog handling, musical perfomances and plays, a stage ready for whomever wishes to please the crowd. Now that he has time, Gareth has also prepared a contest for Mages specifically to honour his now-deceased friend, Enchanter Wynne of the Ferelden Circle. Mages will be encouraged to show off their mastery of the Fade and made to race each other to complete tasks and the like. 

But the Grand Tourney is the main attraction, the star that nobility and commonality alike will flock to see. To the winner? A substantial cash prize, the favour of the Queen herself and the Honour of Dueling Ferelden’s unbeaten Champion for Ten years, Ser Cauthrien of Gwaren, ‘The Ferelden Frostback’ to her Soldiers.

However…

Not everyone attending the festivities wishes all joy. The last dreggs of the Venetori cult has seen an opportunity to continue spreading dissent, to weaken their enemies so that Tevinter might profit. They plot a scheme to Assassinate the Queen, King and any other important dignitary that might attend. Who will foil this plan? Who will win the Tourney? Will Ser Cauthrien be finally ousted from her Victorious throne? 

Come all, come all to Denerim’s Grand Tourney! See ye what might begin!
