Hit Korean boy band BTS is ready to take over Anaheim

Rap Monster, one of the seven guys in the South Korean boy band BTS, says it was only at the end of 2016 that he and the others realized how huge their band had become around the world.

“Somebody in the company sent me a message: ‘You got No. 26 on Billboard OMG congratulations,’” says Mr. Monster, the 22-year-old rapper born Kim Nam-joon, by phone from Chicago where BTS was set to play on Thursday before hitting Honda Center for a pair of sold-out shows on Saturday and Sunday.

“At first I thought, 'Ha ha, your humor isn’t really very good,’” says Rap Monster, the leader of the group and its primary songwriter. “We didn’t believe it.”

But as more messages started to ping onto their phones he says the BTS boys realized it was no joke: Their sophomore album, “Wings,” entered the Billboard 200 chart at No. 26 after its October release, making it the highest chart position for any K-pop act – not to mention one that sings primarily in Korean – and offering a bit of foreshadowing for Billboard naming the record the best K-pop album of the year.

Since then things have only gotten sunnier for Rap Monster, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. In February, “Wings” was re-released in a new edition as “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” and the combined editions have since sold nearly 1.5 million copies worldwide. Music videos for “Spring Day” and “Not Today” were released a week apart last month as well and exploded on YouTube where they’ve currently racked up 59.2 million and 60.1 million views respectively.

“When we heard that and really got that, I was saying, 'OK, this is going to be a whole other world,’” Rap Monster says of the significance of the Billboard chart success and all that followed. “And I feel like we should do something more, and dream something more.”

This past week they’ve taken a step toward something more, playing their first headlining and sold-out arena dates in the United States, after previously having mostly played on multi-artist billings at KCON conventions held here.

“So many people just to see BTS was really an honor,” Rap Monster says of the opening pair of shows at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. “It feels dreamy these days.”

Not, mind you, that it’s been anything like an overnight success or an easy road for him and the other BTS members.

He grew up a top student in his school who loved American rappers such as Eminem and Nas, performing even as he attended high school and eventually catching the attention of BTS future manager Bang Si-hyuk at BigHit Entertainment in South Korea. And though he says he gave up on music when he was 16, lacking confidence in where he was headed, he says Bang encouraged him to stay strong, believe in himself, and sign on as the first to join BTS, even though at the time he wasn’t sure who or what it would end up incorporating.

“I was not aware of the other members,” Rap Monster says. “But I like the company and I respect them. And he promised to me, 'I will make you do your music and get big someday, so please believe me.’

"So I believed him.”

The other six members soon were selected, each of them bringing different talents on the mic or on stage. Songs were developed by Rap Monster and the other members, with a team of producers working to craft the best music from the raw material, the melodies and beats, that they created.

“Our chemistry is different from other groups,” Rap Monster says. “Everyone has their own points and characteristics. If I’m a bad dancer, a good dancer teaches me. If I’m a good songwriter, I help the others with a good melody.”

We ask the obvious question: Are you a bad dancer?

He laughs and answers: “Yes, I’m a bad dancer.”

Their music is different from a lot of K-pop acts that have made ripples on the American airwaves. They’re not popular because of the novelty aspect of their songs – think “Gangnam Style” by Psy from a few years back. And they’re not quite as bubblegum as a group such as Girls Generation or as eclectic as the synthpop of f(x), the first Korean band to play the South By Southwest festival.

Instead, BTS often aims for that sweet spot where R&B and rap get together, the kind of stuff Justin Bieber might be doing if he sang in Korean and there were six Bieber variations with fashionable hair and eclectic yet unified fashion choices.

“BTS music sounds like it’s from America,” Rap Monster says. “We decide to always watch the trends and watch what’s going on over the world. America’s the No. 1 market in the world so that’s why people in America prefer us.”

As for communicating through the language divide, Rap Monster says that’s partly handled by the group’s wildly enthusiastic social media following: “Fans translate our lyrics and interviews,” he says of a following that has landed them at the top of Billboard’s Social 50 list for a total of 17 weeks since “Wings” dropped in October. “They’re able to say, 'OK, BTS is talking about us and our lives.’”

And it’s partly addressed through lyrical subjects that express the common hopes and dreams and fears and worries of any teenager or young adult in any country.

“Our lyrics are mostly Korean but we always talk about the young people’s lives and their minds,” Rap Monster says. “There’s something similar between every young person in the world, in America or in Korea. We share something together even if we use different languages or live so far.”

American fans are also the savviest music lovers in the world, Rap Monster says, which made heading out on this brief headlining tour a little bit intimidating at first.

“We actually were scared of performing in America as a solo act,” he says. “Their playlists are the best in the world. I was really nervous for them.

"But after we were on stage our fear disappeared. They’re like everybody, they’re like friends. Singing along all of the lyrics even through the raps. They know how to play, the rhythms and the dances.”

An aside here to share our favorite piece of Rap Monster trivia. You might be wondering whether he spoke through a translator. He did not. His excellent English skills were polished in the classroom but also at home through what he refers to as “a Korean mothers syndrome.”

“'Friends’ was really famous for the mothers in Korea for English education,” Rap Monster says of the hit American sitcom from the '90s. “It was kind of like a syndrome. Korean mothers make their kids watch 'Friends’ even when they were eating food or playing.

"I think it really helped. It has like 10 seasons, I think, and I watched it like more than five times through the 10 seasons. They use the gestures and expressions, like, Americans use, right? I think that naturally teaches me how to speak or how to make a gesture when you try to express some emotions.

"Thank you, 'Friends,’” he says, laughing. “God bless 'Friends’!”

Rap Monster recently collaborated with the American rapper Wale on the song “Change,” which like some of BTS’ other songs – and unlike most K-pop – touches on politics and societal issues. He says he’d loved Wale’s music for a few years when the opportunity to do the song came along last year “like a miracle, like a dream come true.

"The song has already come out and we shot a music video together, but still sometimes I lie in my bed and think, 'Did I really do something with him?’” Rap Monster says.

He knows that boy groups from Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync to the Jonas Brothers and One Direction tend to have a finite lifespan before members get restless to move on solo projects, acting gigs and other opportunities. But he thinks the variety of interests and musical genres that individual BTS members have can be handled on the side or even within the group, and BTS itself can carry on.

So while Rap Monster says he’d love to collaborate with Drake or Miguel one day, Suga feels the same way about Kanye West and Flume. Jungkook seems more inclined toward pop R&B – his dream musical partners would include Bieber or Charlie Puth. V is a little bit old school, having mentioned Norah Jones and the Fugees as on his wish list. Rap Monster ticks off the rest of the band: Jimin digs Chris Brown, J-Hope is into the similarly initialed J. Cole, and Jin is a fan of old-school showman Bruno Mars.

“I always tell them that every time we have hits under the name of BTS we shine the best when we are a team,” Rap Monster says. “I know all the seven members, they love music, and I know their No. 1 wish is for us to perform and make music and sing and dance.

"Maybe someday someone will want to be on a television show or be an actor,” he says. “I just hope they know all of the popularity and fame and money is from the name of our team. That’s not one person, everybody contributes to the team.

"Nobody knows the future. I just hope it can last as long as possible.”

Why Namjoon isnt accepted in the krap scene (and why thats a good thing)

  unpopular opinion and confession 

*****im not saying all krappers are like this btw chill ur dick

***also butthurt ppl dont come at me saying YEAH YOONGI TOO bc i shall make a post about him too i didnt forget about yall, always coming into namjoon rap posts and making it about yoongi

****My intention of this post is not to diss your faves or rappers in general. This isn’t a post that has the intention of throwing shade I am simply expressing my respect for an artist. 

I never really respected a lot of k-rappers. I do like some songs because they have a good beat but respect is something that an artist should earn. I respect rappers and groups like epik high, verbal jint, and tiger jk for influencing the krap scene for the good.

I wont touch on american rap but the krap scene is so generalized. Like hey have fake gold chains and a bunch of girls while I rap about shit that doesnt make people feel better about themselves with lyrics that i didnt even write. Many generalize culture, rap about degrading others, and you know all that shit. But let me tell you: RAP stands for RHYTHM AND POETRY.

POETRY

Listen anyone can have their different perspective on poetry and maybe to someone “squad shit it g ma” is the most well thought out poetic verse that they have heard. 

But rapping all started when people were in pain, when people were in dark time period in life and spilling out their feelings through rhyme made them feel better and got them out of trouble. I`m not saying you need a depressing life story to be a rapper (you dont need a chicken to recognize an egg) but rapping is way more than some beats and a snapback, its a coping mechanism, maybe not always for the artist but definitely the audience.

I sound so old when I`m saying this but rapping isnt just talking fast, its a lengthy process of finding strong and meaningful word play, to beats and rhythms which compliment eachother which is then it put together in one song almost like a prayer.

and don`t come at me with the WELL I LIKE HOW IT SOUNDS, because these days i swear to god ANYONE CAN BE A RAPPER, and thats how it shouldnt be. 

They get others to write songs for them, songs usually have no smart wordplay or meaning and just talk in slightly faster pace. (i definitely find rap flow and speed a plus point in rapping). 

Rappers who arents even all that shit get praised and recieve so much attention and go on judging others just bc their not AS famous.

(random thought i really dislike smtm) Rapping isnt a childsplay. Common korean rap communities like smtm etc are extremely trashy to me.

 In 2015 during bangtan`s vacation Namjoon released his first mixtape (legendary) which proved his ability to write lyrics in both english and korean, write lyrics about depression happiness life hope etc, he made a damn song DISSING rappers who only have flow and lyrics that don`t make sense AND SPAT BARS SO FAST IM LIKE BOI BREATH, he teamed up with a western artist and recieVED EXTREME APPRECIATION IN THE AMERICAN RAP SCENE. 

If you don`t know he started rapping at 13 because he was going through a really low point in his life. He then started writing HIS OWN lyrics about his feelings and educated himself in hip hop and rap culture (he listened to a lot of nas and tupac what a man). He then joined an underground rap team which he gained skills like free-styling and flow (BOY CAN RAP SO FAST BRUH). But definitely his raps are extremely smart. He uses so much worldplay their almost like a riddle you need to figure out. Not only that he can rhyme and compose and has the qualities of a true rapper who IS PASSIONATE ABOUT MUSIC HE LET DOWN  HIS FAMILY TO BE A RAPPER DESPITE HAVING SO MUCH GRADES

AND EVEN AFTER ALL THAT HE GETS DISSED IN THE KRAP COM-

Like when someone would think of k-rapper they would think Zico, Gd maybe, Jay Park, Dok2 (and if you are fans of common krappers thats okay) but I honestly feel as if rappers like them are so common. To me they don`t show anything exceptional. Its like comparing Eminem with Lil yatchy (you can like either and thats okay) but Eminem did his own thing with no influence from the stereotypical culture. In shows like SMTM or unpretty rapstar you definitely see the rap community come together and Im like boi why isnt joon there he can own yall asses.

Namjoon however is on a whole different level. He does in own thing without the influence of popular culture (which refers to his message in his song DO YOU). He raps about things that are special TO HIMSELF and doesnt care about others opinions. He never thinks about what others might think of his song or what he should do to catch the attention of the audience. He does what he likes to do and goes with HIS gut.

Namjoon is a special snowflake and I dont want him to be thrown in the *oh look another korean rapper lets put him in smtm and not let them grow as an artist* pile bc I feel as if thatll take away his authenticity.

I`m kinda happy that Namjoon doesnt associate himself with common rappers because he is way better than that. He strives to collab with artists of his choice, his taste, and doesnt go for popular or common people. 

Like you know what I`m trying to say. Imagine an exceptional student who isnt really popular among the folks. and all the students who get like c`s or b`s are extremely praised and popular.

Don`t get me wrong despite getting SO MANY opportunities like 4 features in official songs from other groups (one being korean hip hop legends MFBTY), being in the 4 things show , performing at multiple festivals individually,etc. I really don`t feel as if he reached the legendary rap title yet. He definitely was close to being “part” of the community as in 2014-2015 his rap career was highly active but is on the low now as a individual. 

  I appreciate Bangtan as a group and all the contributions of all 7 members  but since BTS is a group who produces their own music, one member can`t just go off making MVs while their writers do the job for their (cough cough, bts dont got writers they got mean namjoon) I know he is busy writing for bangtan, producing beats, and a whole lot of shit for the group and he is happy with doing that but that also takes away time from doing his solo rap career AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT.

He doesnt care of not being able to produce music all the time to the likings of krappers. He cares about Bangtan. He knows his potential and doesnt need to highly promote in order to prove his worthiness. He can promote small mixtapes or covers for his armys and he is content with that. His intention isnt to get famous, as he always says: i do this for the  music not the fame.

He does his own thing and doesnt worry about the drama. He is too good for them. Someone who is beyond expectations doesn’t mingle with people who are popular. They dont worry about irrelevants. They just keep on focusing on themselves and how to grow.

I can`t wait to see him become so well known as a rapper (he already is so high up in his journey) that everyone who looked down on him now want to be him.

Namjoon is a person who expressed that their isnt a right wrong with hip hop just passion

Pray for Jun. K

Jun. K sustained injuries during the concert on the 26th.

During performance they were on a moving platform that moved between the audience areas. The platforms were such that three members were on one trolley, three on the other. And the trolleys would come close and touch each other before going back again. While the two platforms were moving away, his foot slipped and he fell down a height of 9ft. Eye witnesses said he hit his head/ neck on the floor and he couldn’t get up. Thankfully, he was conscious and responsive to stimuli. The concert was immediately stopped and he was taken to the hospital. Concert ticket money will be refunded.

JYPE issued a notice after some time saying that he has a fractured right elbow and the ring finger of his right hand is also fractured.

There was no word from anyone for a good 24 hours. Not even the other members or even his friends.

Tonight, JYPE issued a notice that says that he has undergone a surgery for his elbow, no complications. However, he complained of chest and knee pain. The scans were clear but he will be kept under monitoring.

Kindly send your love and prayers to Minjun. He must be in a lot of pain.

Please remember the members too. Junho is having a very hard time already. During the concert, he used to get only 30 minutes worth of sleep for the entire day because of the schedule of rehearsals, then concerts and then the drama shooting. He was shaken by the accident and was seen crying when they carried MJ away. The other members also need a lot of your love and support. They are all under a lot of stress.

Let’s send Jun. K lots of good wishes and prayers for quick recovery. Let’s send wishes and strength to members.

You can send them messages on Twitter. If you don’t have a Twitter account, you could send your messages to me. And I will tweet them with your names (if you want me tpo display them).

Trending hashtag is #GetWellSoonKimMinjun

“Like elder brother and younger brother”

(Shoma and Keiji’s interview in Quadruple 2017 Extra magazine. Thanks to @chestnutskating for the scans!)

Shoma Uno and Keiji Tanaka have been leading Japanese men’s figure skating since they were juniors, and they finished gold and silver at this season’s Japanese Nationals. Their joint interview became a reality after they finished their segments at Worlds. We got a sneak peak into the 19 and 23 year olds’ raw, true selves which we do not get to see most of the time.

– Well done at the World Championships. Were you in the same room this time?

K + S: Nope, we weren’t.

S: We haven’t roomed together much since we became seniors right?

K: Nope, not normally.

– You roomed together frequently when you were juniors.

S: Yep, that’s right.

K: We did room a lot when we were juniors.

‘Hanging Out’ - Jared Kleinman (smut)

A/N: Idk what this is??? I put a ‘read more’ because it’s super long and smutty

Requested by anon: “49 with Jared?”

49. My Sims get more action than I do!

Pairing: Jared x reader (I tried to make it as gender neutral as possible, but if there are any slip ups, I’m so so sorry!)

Warning(s): smut my dude, p r a i s e k i n k, A LOT of cursing, awkwardness bc I live for blushy awkward smut oops, Jared gets insecure and it’s sad :((

Word count: 3,208 (this is sooo long for being so bad lmao)



You spent the majority of your life listening to Jared Kleinman complain. Whether it was about how slow his game console was compared to the newest one, or about his glasses or about the retainer he had to wear at night, he always had something to complain about. As he got older, the complaints gradually changed from toys to his love life, which is what he was currently saying as the two of you hung your heads upside down off the end of his bed.
“Why don’t people want to date me, Y/N? I’m attractive right?” He asked, turning to look at you. He was squinting due to the fact that his glasses had fallen long before, and his face was red from hanging upside down. You let out a snort and shook your head. “No, not right you’re not.” Jared shoved you and you laughed. “I’m kidding! You’re not bad looking at all!” You told him. “Then why am I single?”


“Maybe it’s because you’re annoying?”


“Shut up!”


This was the usual routine for you two. One of you would talk about your problems and the other one would make sarcastic remarks. The two of you often joked that you didn’t know why you put up with each other when all you did was throw insults back and forth. You did know, however, why you put up with Jared’s antics:

You, Y/N, were in love with your best friend since childhood.

It was terribly cliché, and it annoyed you to no end. Why him of all people? You had no fucking clue, maybe it was the way his humor matched yours so well or the way he was able to make you feel better when you were down. But those were all just things a best friend did, right? The more you thought about it, the more you realized just how deep the shit you were in actually was.
“I’m serious, nobody wants to date me! I’m chubby and obnoxious. I mean, shit, my Sims get more action than I do!” It was very rare when Jared would express actual insecurities while complaining, so you knew that it wasn’t just joking around anymore. You sat up and helped him to do the same, both of your heads spinning from suddenly being right-side-up. “Jared, there’s nothing wrong with you. There is someone out there who loves you for you, you just have to find them!”

“Loves?”

“What?”

Jared narrowed his eyes at you. “You said loves, as in there’s already someone who does.” Jared must have seen your eyes widen in panic because next thing you knew, he was interrogating you about who it was. “Do I know them? Are they in our friend group? Are they a boy or a girl or a nonbinary person? Are they cute?” You stayed quiet, not trusting yourself to say any more than you already had. As Jared continued to ask more and more questions, you knew that you had royally fucked up.

“I-I have to go!” You yelled abruptly, cutting Jared off in the middle of a question. “B-But wait! Y/N you need to tell me-” You ran out of his bedroom before he could finish his sentence.

So you know how BTS has done live performances of covers of older songs?

Perfect Man

As I Told You ( my favourite )

Rainism

Imagine…in 10 years or so there’s gonna be new boy groups covering BTS’ older songs during showcases like this. They’d be dancing to classics like Boy In Luv, Danger, I Need U, DOPE, Fire, Blood Sweat & Tears and Not Today as a commemoration to BTS’ long journey to success and being historical icons for opening up paths for K-POP groups to hit the US industry…

Like shit…they’d be dubbed legends and kings to the new era of K-Pop idols. And they’d be role models to a lot of k-pop idols, praising Jungkook’s voice, Hobi’s dance, Suga’s rapping etc etc. I’m not tearing up I promise.

Comment down your favourite cover!

i got asked about bluepulse headcanons on curious cat and thought they were good so im putting them here

1) when they get older Bart becomes the taller one
2) jaime goes to college, bart sticks with the hero business full time, they get an apartment together and frequently do chores while dancing to songs like gasolina and mambo no.5 at full volume, somehow making doing the dishes and vacuuming into a full fledged musical (you know the scene in selena gomez’s another cinderella story? yeah.) jaime hates dancing in public but bart is good at loosening him up, maybe even convinced jaime to get on the dancefloor at a teammates wedding, if only for one song
3) bart knew he liked jaime since he was like 13 and had to Deal With It until Jaime caught the fuck on. They didn’t actually start dating until Bart was 17 and jaime was 19, but jaime started crushing on bart a year before that.
4) everyone on the team would joke about jaime and bart being “relationship goals”/everyone knew they were in love before they did, so when bart and jaime finally did get together they didn’t tell the team out of spite/because they thought it’d be funny to see how touchy feely they could get before anyone figured it out
5) jaime’s parents basically gave bart their blessing before they even started dating
6) jaime loves classic movies like jurassic park but bart hates movies in general. early on in their friendship they’d figured out that “netflix and chill” wasnt their deal, but once bart walked in on jaime watching a telenovela (one his “mom watched all the time and its not like i actually Like this haha”) ((it was Teresa)) and was for some reason entranced. He thought it was ridiculous and asked Jaime every five seconds to translate what was going on, so watching cheesy soap operas in spanish became one of the few things they could watch together
7) Jaime is a dog lover to his core and while at first Bart was neutral, Jaime convinced him that Holy Shit Dogs Are Great and they frequently yell “HEY LOOK! A DOG!” if they see one in the middle of a mission, even if its covert
8) both have No Sense Of Fashion/would wear the same thing everyday if they could. they thought it’d be funny to show up to a formal dinner for the league in tshit tuxedos. tim nearly assassinated them both on sight
9) they do phone calls a lot for small things like “im at 7-11 what do you want” “hot dog” “k bye”, which a lot of ppl find weird because “its easier to just text”, but jaime gets a lot of texting anxiety/prefers to hear inflection in someones voice and bart literally cant fucking read most words
10) fave hangout is the el paso desert late at night (they usually try to catch the sunrise and then sleep late in the afternoon). lots of impromptu makeouts or long ass rants about life at 3am

onceuponymous  asked:

Tell us in your words about what Rich was like before getting a Squip

K: Mastrubates a lot, weak immune system, suicidal, trips over nothing, actually did not have friends, nerdy, just can’t attract girls, what is social interaction, what is sleep or self-confidence. A big mess  to be honest

She will love you

Pairing: Sebastian Stan x Reader
Word Count: 1 k+
Warning: Lot of fluff, love, pregnancy

Summary: You and Sebastian are expecting your first child. One night you get all insecure about this whole thing, and Seb tries to comfort you in his sweetest way.

A/N: I have never been pregnant before, but it seem scary to me.

It was early in the morning you woke up and wiped down the tears of your face. You bit on your tongue not to cry again as the extremely vivid pictures of your dream showed up again. Your grip tightened around your blanket while your other hand slid on your belly as you tried to hold it together. 

 'Hey, doll. What’s wrong? Have you had a nightmare?’ You could hear Sebastian’s sleepy voice next to you. He sat up, resting his chin on your shoulder. You swallowed back your tears before starting to speak. 

‘It was terrible. She hated me. I gave birth too early, she was so tiny and I couldn’t breastfed her.’ You cried burying your face into his neck. 

 'It was just a nightmare. Everything will be alright.’ He tried to calm you while pulling back to the pillow. 

You looked back at him with eyes covered in tears, lips trembling. 

‘It’s alright. You won’t give birth too early, it’s only a week now until your due day.’ He mumbled the words slowly into your ear, pacing his hand on your baby bump. 

‘I know, Seb, but what if something goes wrong? What if I wouldn’t be able to take care of her?’ You cried quietly, leaning to him. 

‘Than we will figure it out, but I know you will be the best mother ever, the most caring loving one.’ He said, gently stroking your hands and belly. ‘I know it, because I know you. I have never meet anyone more loving and wonderful then you are. And I’m not saying this because I’m madly in love with you. But because I know this, I know you. Every time we travel somewhere together you are always the one packing some food or snacks for the travel. Also, every time I go to train early in the morning, you wake up just to remind me what I should take with me. When you make me food, to take away, you put a small piece of paper in my shoes to remind me with a cute drawing to lighten my morning. Every night you pull my blanket over my bare back to keep me warm, and if you can’t you crawl closer to keep my warm. You are already sing to our daughter and talk to her a lot, and she recognises you voice.’ He tried to remind you all the small stuff you did to him when he felt you really take care of him. 

‘She recognises your voice too.’ You added softly, pulling his warm palm on your belly. ‘She always press her little feet to my belly when she can hear you and feel the warmth of your hand.’ You said, feeling your daughter moving. 

‘I know, but still you are her mother. You are carrying her for nine months, preparing for meeting her, and believe me she will be amazing, and she will love you so much. So, believe me when I say, you will be alright, and everything else will be alright, because you have already did so much for that little baby inside of you. You sing to her, you talk to her every time, you are reading all those books… These may seem small things but these the ones which makes you a great mother. At least these were the things why I fell for you.’ He added peppering your hair with kisses. 

‘Thank you.’ You cried again, trying to bury yourself in his strong arms. ‘I love you so, so much, Sebastian!’ You turned to him, catching his lips desperately. The kiss was slow, deep full with love, trust and care. 

‘I love you too. Both of you.’ He mumbled into your lips. He was drawing little circles on your belly, feeling your daughter moving under his touch. 

You turned on your side, tucking a pillow under your body and head, pulling the blanket over your back. When you settled Sebastian laid behind you, pulling you close, wrapping his arm around your body, placing his hand you your bump. He fall asleep quickly, you felt his even breathing on the back of your neck. It calmed you and his gentle touch calmed your daughter too, drifting both of you to sleep soon.
