Q: But Hoseok, what do you think is at the end of this beautiful moment?
Hobi:At the end of this beauty… Even if it’s ‘hwayangyeonhwa’… I don’t think it can last forever. There will be an end. I think this uncertainty, this future, has given me great fear. There always will be bigger obstacles and moments that won’t shine as much as it does now. But whenever I think about that, I think I can go through that. Just… When that moment comes that doesn’t shine like now, and gives me a lot of hardships and pain, I just want to find another 'hwayangyeonhwa’ in that moment. Thinking about that… I always overcame my fear. And not just me, but the team BTS is made of stuff that can overcome hard times. I’ve been with this team for 7 years, so I have a lot of love and faith in this team. Our team can overcome all those hard times and pain. BTS can do anything. I am really grateful that so many fans love us. It’s only been 3 years, but this is the team that can go for dozens of years. So to A.R.M.Y. who’s always by our side supporting us, I want to say “thank you” again.
I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.
With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.
They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.
So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.
They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?
I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.
One more person tries to tell me the reason Hoseok got ZERO lines in Spring day is because he had a the intro and the most lines in BST and imma pop off.
First of all, BTS always rotates which member gets to do the intro. This is not Hoseok sweeping forward and idk, stealing the intro as a second song, this is his RIGHT, FINALLY, to do the intro. It’s not his fault they also chose the album he FINALLY got to do the intro on as the album where the entire group also gets a solo song. The fact that he has 2 songs is literally irrelevant in this case, at least, it should be, because those solos shouldn’t conflict with the fact that it’s his turn for the intro.
True, this does equal a fact that he got 2 solo songs on the solo album, but it’s not really the same? I think it’s kind of like saying that Namjoon or Yoongi’s intro counted as a 2nd song when the other albums had the cypher series? Idk, it just? it’s not really even a factor. Besides, Hoseok earned that intro spot. Namjoon has his side projects and his mixtape, Yoongi just released his bomb ass mixtape that’s been well received, Jeongguk has MCing and he relreases solo tracks, Taehyung now has his acting and he and Jin collaborated on the OST track, Jimin has several dance features this past year. Hoseok’s intro was a ncessity at this point, no one should be counting that like it’s a negative and he shouldn’t be ‘paying’ for it by losing album time.
Second of all, saying that Hoseok is getting cut out of Spring Day because of his Blood Sweat and Tears lines is literally ludicrous? Hoseok routinely gets less time on the tracks as a rapper compared to Yoongi and Namjoon, as a Hoseok bias I have no issue with this in general because Yoongi and Namjoon are more experienced, and they mix the track based on a lot of things, from flow to style to how many lines they were able to write, and even all the way down to balancing the entire album. So don’t yell at me about being a Hoseok bias who’s clearing just talking shit. It’s not about that. But Hoseok generally has less time on tracks, so the fact that he had a lot of lines on Blood Sweat and Tears isn’t really a big deal in terms of him getting too much. That’s like saying; oh, Jeongguk had a lot of lines in every single song that’s why we literally excluded him from this song? The fact that he has a lot of lines should be irrelevant. Besides, even the lines he did have in Blood Sweat and Tears were shared with Jeongguk during live stages, and let’s not even TOUCH on what they did to Jin then, and now, in Spring Day, because Jin deserves his own 109 page rant.
This is about Hoseok for now. I’ll do a Jin related rant probably.
ANYWAYS, I think my biggest problem is that there isn’t even 1 line? It makes the balance of the song feel off, wrong even. Even in Fire, Hoseok showed up for around 5 lines total, that was a very short verse but it felt balanced, and the fact that he had a shared verse with Namjoon helped too. Even Jin had lines in Fire. Fire may not be my favorite BTS song but at least the balance didn’t feel as off as if has in the past.
I think I wish they could have pulled a fire, and at least let Hoseok have at least one line. I’m assuming that it’ll be handled like they did with Jin in BST, where the live stages might have at least 1 line or so for Hoseok just so that he’s not standing around doing nothing. Or maybe the dance will be Hoseok centric (which, i lowkey doubt it because they love to play 2seok but whatever now i’m getting salty).
In short, people like to try to justify the reasons for 2 members in particular always getting shafted like there’s a reason. I’m sure there is a reason. Balance of the entire album is one, maybe Jin’s filming got in the way, idk what got in the way of Hoseok having a single line, maybe he got lost in the bathroom idk, but, I’m AWARE that there are reasons okay. And I’m not blaming the Boys, and I don’t even blame the production staff, I understand balancing reasons, I understand lots of things, I even know for 100% fact that BTS tries realy hard to be accepting of each other, not to get jealous or mad about line distribution, and is one of the most solid groups under the ‘teamwork makes the dream work’ philosophy.
Still doesn’t make me, a Hoseok bias, feel any better about my man not having any lines okay. So Please let me cry without telling me that I’m being stupid or that he DID have lines, remember he had lines for BST and he had an intro. TT.
TLDR: please let hyung line biased fans, partially Hoseok (and Jin) biased fans, mourn in peace without telling them that you’re tired or that they’re unjustified ! ! ! As long as they’re not complaining directly to the boys, or about another boy getting too much, etc, then it’s not problematic it’s called venting. Venting is fine. The real issue is when people start blaming other members for their own fav members not getting enough time. But yeh, anyways, this was long. RIP.
Just now the curtain closed in Kobe on the stage play, “Messiah Hagane no Shou”.
Thank you all for coming to the show. I was overwhelmed by feelings of gratitude.
I figured that I would blog about these feelings and memories while they last. I’d be glad if you all joined me.
This time, performing [in Messiah] for the first time since Hakugin no Shou, was honestly a rather complicated feeling. My companions from that time, Haku, Eiri, and Shuusuke weren’t there. It was incredibly heavy being all by myself. When I received the script I worried even more. It was full of the heavy lines of a senior member of Sakura. While there weren’t a lot of lines, saying those heavy lines one by one filled me with dread even more. I can’t really put it adequately into words. However, even if it’s a lie I can’t easily act like I’m their senior/senpai. I can’t lie when standing in front of such serious Sakura cadets.
I want to tell them things I can’t see. But what those things are… Ultimately, there was nothing to do but believe in [the role] of Souma that I had built in my own way. And I could only think of Haku, Eiri, and Shuusuke. I felt as if the three of them were always there with me on stage. The more I thought of them the stronger that feeling became.
I noticed this time because I was more distant. We’re connected by bonds we cannot see. We really are Messiah after all. We’re always facing the unknown alone. I may not know where he is or what he’s doing right now. But we’re not alone.
It’s a strange production. I didn’t think I would love it this much. So much of this performance was Mamiya, Ariga, Shirasaki and Yuuri. I believe the four of them share the same feelings. I was in the same dressing room with these four during the Kobe shows. It was really fun seeing how incredibly well the four of them get along, it made me laugh. And I could feel the thick bonds that are so strong that no one could come between them as well. They’ve completely become new Messiah. They shined brilliantly on stage… I was touched by their passionate souls. And somehow I was overwhelmed by feelings of gratitude.
Messiah is loved by so many people. And they continued to protect it. It’s thanks to all those people that I was able to return as Souma. I am nothing but grateful.
Thank you, from my heart.
And some day. I’ll dream of the day we meet again.*
Ota Motohiro as Gojou Souma
*TN: Mokkun uses the phrase “零杯ノ日” which literally means “the day of zero cups” which is supposed to be a way of saying, “until the day we meet again”. It’s a war reference to drinking to the souls of fallen comrades at the end of a battle.
It’s makes me so depressed that Edward has had to live in Munich, leaving all friends (and Al) behind, later on he witnessed his father being killed (and Heiderich…) i just cannot understand where does he gets all those calmness and courage, this makes me want to hug him so bad, to tell him that he doesn’t need to be brave anymore, for just a sec ; ;
I kinda needed a break from school, so the recent finale of Carmilla Season 3 motivated me to do a Lapidot AU and if I weren’t that stressed and sleepy, I might draw more scenes and try to work out this but I can’t think which charas can fill the roles~ so for now enjoy Lapis as the broody vampire and Peri as the tiny gay journalist nerd during Season 1 :3
ok as uncomfortable it was to watch the whole money-exchange scene I’m so happy they included it because it really was what has been missing from this season. Like on their last one fine day we saw so much real seventeen without makeup and tired and not always trying to be entertaining and this season it’s nice to see them happy but it always felt like they were trying so hard to be funny and it gets unnatural eventually because you just know they aren’t upbeat and cheery all the time. And they must drive eachother crazy sometimes because that’s what people do and you totally got everyone’s frustration in that situation and it was so nice to see them work it out together and it was nice to see the 95-line collectively take responsibility to solve it and I just really really loved how it worked out and I just really really love seventeen I guess?
