mama to be a 2nd time



  • Sakura: Sarada, how was school today?
  • Sarada: Terrible. Inojin, that idiot, tried to kiss me. I kicked him between the legs for that.
  • Ino: Oh you shouldn't have sweetie, he's gonna need those parts later.
  • Sarada: Aunt Ino, you are here? (turns and notices her mom slipping a bill under the table) What are you guys doing?
  • Sakura: Just drinking tea and gossiping, we haven't chatted in a while-
  • Sarada: No, I mean, the thing you did under the table... Mama, are you betting on my lovelife again?
  • Sakura: Honey, let me explain...
  • Ino: Don't blame us, sweetie, your mama trained under the greatest gambler after all.
  • Sarada: Urgh, I can't believe you, mama! I'm going to train with papa this evening because at least he doesn't gamble on my life choices.
  • -same time, different location-
  • Naruto: Soo... Boruto said Sarada let him borrow her notes today. Pay up, moron.
  • Sasuke: Tch, that son of a bitch.
  • Naruto: Sasuke, language!

 And the “monster rookies” continue to take over the music world.

no shit I actually cried and sobbing for like 5 minutes when I read Jongin’s message to Kyungsoo. 

I always know he loves him (they are close, duh. Only those who hate kaisoo think otherwise) but to finally seeing that again after a while really makes me emo. It’s not just simple “I love you” but a firm “I always love you” and “I love you the most, you know that right?”

He’s dead serious when he says that as if he wants to reassure Kyungsoo that he’s been loving him all this time and will continue to do so. And I think it’s very sweet, whether it’s platonic or romantic. 

I’m actually glad Kyungsoo has someone like Jongin. Because what Jongin told him in the message is exactly what I’ve been wanting to say to Kyungsoo (I’m Kyungsoo stan!! lol) 

But I– uh no I think we can’t compete with Jongin when it comes to his love for Kyungsoo lol he’s the one who loves him the most

We get it, Kim Jongin. We get it.


anyone who read this, don’t forget to vote EXO, Baekhyun, Chen, and Chanyeol on MAMA! we’re 2nd in few categories. Even though it’s still D-32, it would be nice if everyone could vote even if it’s only 5 times a day haha Let’s do our best for EXO because they deserve everything  ❤  

Coran is important

can we talk about how important Coran actually is though?

He 100% supports all of the paladins and Allura and would honestly do anything for them, he takes care of whoever is upset and he’s so understanding and humble and funny and kooky and i love him ok

He has these lovely little moments with the paladins and he looks over them all like a proud mama and is so encouraging, especially in the 2nd ep, he talks to Lance about his time in bootcamp and tells them they’re doing well independently and he even takes care of space dad giving him a lil juice drink when they’re all sat down, telling them they deserve a rest 

everyone seems to forget about him, but if you go back and watch the show again you’ll realize how important he actually is, pls dont forget him pls


I’ve been drawing Mama Asano for years 12 ], pls, someone join me in Asano hell and wonder when Matsui will (n)ever show us the Real Last Boss™

anonymous asked:

Just to say I adore your account with every fiber of my being, but since there are soldiers In Sonic Forces, what would you think about Amy being their commander or general? To add Sonic spars with Amy and actually looses due to him thinking "she can't handle it" which infuriates Amy to prove him wrong with a following line "I can't have the leisure of being weak any more Sonic" which leads the blur in this downward-spiral thinking he can't be Amy's shield or hero anymore?

Interesting…~ And thank you so much xD



“Command, this is Alpha Wolf II, do you copy?”

“Just give me details, solider, I don’t want any more disappointing news.”

Sitting in the dark… trapped behind a desk with thousands upon thousands of monitors, gloved hands typed at lightning speeds…

With a mic and headset looped around pink quills, a voice broke the silence once again. “Solider, you’re not responding.”

Her mouth hung open slightly,.. hearing someone cry out a name she had hoped to never hear…

“Infinite! He’s-!! BBZZZTT…”

Amy rose up after the static hit her ears and she saw the lights of her monitor going out one… by … one…

“No…” her head shook, as her chair rolled in a jerk away from her body as she rose up and slammed her fists to the keyboards below..


She whipped the headset and mic off her head and swung it to the desks, stomping out and summoning her hammer.

“Never again…” her eyes held such pain, such torture..

“I won’t let a single regiment fall under my protection ever again!”

Amy ran up the debris, holding her hammer up horizontally and moving it forward, encouraging her new troops to advance. “Come on, come on!”

They quickly ran ahead of her, dodging the laser fire and ducking through windows of opportunity for the enemy to strike.

Amy ran so fast that she bashed herself up against some cover her troops had secured, and watched as some peeked the corner and fired at approaching Eggbots.

“Soldier! Get-!” She saw a stupid son-of-a-gun firing out in the open, and reached over to yank the back of his shirt down by her in the cover. “-Over here! What? You want your mama missing you?” she patted the side of his face but turned to her second in command.

“How many?” She completely shifted back into focus of her main objective.

“The men are alright, not a single one out of action.”

“Good…” Amy spoke under her breath, “And the enemy?”

“Gaining. It’s only a matter of time. We can’t play dodgeball forever.” The 2nd in command teased, but his voice and stern look said otherwise…

He huddled down by her and the soldier she wrangled in sides, and knelt beside her. “I mean no offense, commander. But this is about to get seriously out of hand.”

The two ducked as someone cried out, “Grenade!”

The explosion was brief, and as if on point, the two’s heads were the first to come back up, staring at each other and continuing the conversation once the ringing in their ears all stopped.

“You need to take cover, permanently.” he threw her a bag, “This is communications to the quadrants of Tails, Knuckles, and-”

“I give orders, Colonel!” She threw the bag back at him, making him stop from momentarily turning his back to her and about to continue, but was amazed to hear her talk back. “I know you don’t think war is for a woman..” she held a kind look with that sentence…

“But trust me… if women enter a war- they finish what they start. They don’t know how to quit till it’s gone their way, and they whine and fight enough about it to where you don’t want them to lose a war. We understand each other?”

He held her stare, and shook his head, “No ma’am. But I’m not one to fight with a woman.”

“Exactly.” Her stare was serious and direct.

He seemed to get that point, at least.

Moving out to further direct the team, getting some men together, the 2nd in command started turning on the communicator.

“Yes, is this Sonic’s division? What’s the call for? Heh, well you better tell that hedgehog to get his spiny, blue butt over her and save his stubborn girlfriend. She’s trying to bust through the epicenter. Yeah. You heard me. Nothing wrong with a woman dying in war, but I’m sure that’s not one causality he’d fancy too much. Right. Over and out.” he hung the communication up and smirked, turning back over his shoulder to watch her take down a few stray fighter bots from hurting her men.

“Men fight wars to keep their girls safe. Don’t’cha know?” he then slung the backpack on and picked up a large gun, “Fire in the hole!” he turned and shot out a large missile, ducking and letting the debris fly out around him.

Amy continued the march, but it was only a matter of seconds before people cheered at Sonic gracing the scene with his blue streak through the battlefield.

Amy was holding her own, but looking up, she saw the robotic foot of the large, tanky robot coming down on her.

She had two options, jump and hope she makes it enough out of the shadow’s rim of the foot to live, or keep running to hope and make it.

She started for the running and then jump, but the shadow crept closer over her…

Her eyes widened as in air, she noticed the rim start to skim over her arms…

But then two hands caught her own and she was hoisted out, just as the foot came down, and rolled into more cover.

She coughed at the dust that spiraled around her before feeling a familiar grip around her, and looking up.

His musky smell and deep breathing triggered further familiarity as she looked up, and hugged her true, blue-

“Sonic! I’m so glad you’re alright!”

“Me?” Sonic opened his eyes, still catching some breath from the close call.

His eyes narrowed slightly, “I should be saying the same thing.”

He didn’t look too amused…

She got up slowly, “What do you mean?”

He moved out from under her and looked her over, before speaking once again. “You look war-torn and rent. I thought I asked you to keep your men on the upper levels and rims of the confine? Without you keeping them in, G.U.N can’t secure this territory.” He moved up to his knee, letting his arm rest on it as he spoke a little more factually to her, keeping emotions on the downlow.

“But my troop has entered the main wall. We left a secure bridge for your men to-”

“That wasn’t your priority or mission. Amy… you could get a lot of men killed.” he got up, and offered her his hand. “Come on. I know you don’t like a desk job… but the center of war is no place for someone like you.” he turned his head, trying to show some loving-sterness in his voice.

It didn’t work out so well.

“No place… for someone like me?” in offense, Amy stood up on her own, her eyes narrowing in not understanding.

“Call off your troops to fall back.” Sonic turned to the side, swiping his hand steadily out but not with much force, as if too tried to fight and not willing to be that firm with her. “This is no place for you to-”

“You think I’m trying to prove myself or something? I haven’t lost one single man!” She stepped forward, contenting with him, as he ducked his head down and let some air out from his nose.

He wasn’t having it.

“Don’t fight me on this, Amy.”

“What’s to fight? Your rank is equal to mine and I call the shots on my troops.” she folded her arms, before immediately thrusting them down as she grew more and more upset. “You’re purposefully stalling me! I need to get back to leading my men!”

“Colonel has that under hand.” Sonic walked forward and put a hand to her shoulder. “Amy…” he spoke a little more tenderly, but definitely with some desperation for her to stop fighting him. “You’ve got a strong heart, and great intent… but you can’t look death in the eye like this…” he motioned his head down to her eye level, shifting his eyes to each of hers, trying to convince her in the nicest way he could.

What he perceived as logical was only infuriating Amy.

Her ears swiped back, an inaudible growl over her teeth vibrated over the air she let escape through her gritted teeth.

With a glare sharp as knifes, she stomped up to him.

“You may not have a good grip of your own emotions, but mine only enhance my ability to lead! A kind leader with a big heart is stronger than any ruthless dictator! I refuse to abandon my troops because you think I’m too soft!” Amy stormed past him, speaking these words and keeping her head forward with conviction.

He sighed and shook his head, “Don’t do this, Ames..”

“Don’t call me Ames.” she felt him starting to shift, and before he could grab her, she swung herself around.

“I can’t have the luxury of being weak anymore, Sonic!” (Hope it’s okay to change ‘leisure’ to ‘luxury’ >x<)

Sonic caught his tongue, closing his open mouth and suddenly having a shocked look on his face.

He slowly… withdrew his opened hand from reaching for her.

“I know you can’t tell…” She started to grow more emotional, her anger growing to sorrow, “But I’ve changed since that little girl you used to save so much.” she teared up, but refused to think of emotion as weakness. Like some of these men did…

“I don’t need a shield.” she put a hand to the arm that was dropping, as Sonic’s eyes scanned hers and then looked down, feeling conflicted and slightly betrayed by the words he was hearing… “I don’t need a babysitter.” she lightly put her other hand to his cheek, which he turned to be away from her.

“I just need a friend.” she looked tenderly and with love towards him. “I need my hero… to become my friend’s hero… And help them be strong.” she turned her own head to try and see his expression, but he looked so distant… as if each word she spoke…

Was breaking his heart.

“I know you’ve grown Amy… but…” he looked down, as if growing timid, and turned his head to face hers again…

He looked at the hand on his arm…

She tightened it.

“Not grown.” she confirmed, and with a heavy tone, stated- “Changed.”


Sonic turned away, feeling confused and cheated somehow, though he knew he shouldn’t feel that way..

Amy turned to the man calling to her. “I’m here!”

“Commander!” The soldiers came up to her, and knelt down by her with their guns. “We’ve done it! We’ve got the epicenter! But we’re lost on what do now. Should we pierce through to the other side? Or hold ground for further backup?”

‘They made it?’ Sonic looked surprised as he turned to the Soldier.

Amy smiled, beaming at the news. “And our men?”

“All accounted for. Ma’am!” he saluted her. “The buddy-system surprisingly worked very efficiently, ma’am!”

She nodded, turning away and letting go of Sonic.

He watched as the symbolism took root in his heart… as if each string attached to it was snapping one by one as each finger slid off in painful detachment.

He was held in that feeling while Amy addressed the men further.

She stood proudly, hands to her hips, nodding in triumph and accomplishment. “Yep! That’s how you do it! Having someone looking out for you, and you looking out for them, is actually more proficient then just looking after yourself.”

She grinned widely and turned behind her, as Sonic clenched his fist.., his eyes hidden by shadows…

She closed her eyes and began to speak over her shoulder, “Isn’t that right? Sonic?”

She didn’t hear an answer.


She blinked her eyes open, and frantically looked around… before growing confused and stepped forward into the empty space.

“S…Son… Sonic?”

(angst is angsttttty~ obviously, AU.)

yoonjin moments compilation post #runera

so as the run promotion era ended, i really want to make a post for anything yoonjin that has happened because whoa.. i kinda surprise because apparently there’s quite a lot or maybe it’s because i got to talk and have an intense discussion about yoonjin with a bunch of lovely little shits from @yoonjin-network so we got to catch a lot of their moments recently–not to mention our I.F.L.M.M.B.L.D.T.F.Y. session. if anyone wondering, it stands for “I Fucking Losing My Mind But Let’s Do This Fuck Yeah!” where we usually do an impromptu yoonjin scenario because these little shits just can’t hold theirself sometimes *sigh*

so i dedicate this post for you guys. just to summarize what’s just happened in the spare of 2 months. we can’t let the moment be forgotten.

this post contained a lot of photos and gifs so I put this under the cut

^that^ is me after finishing this post btw

Me Rewatching ML: Jackady

NINOOOOOOO. I am really curious why they don’t reveal his last name here. I guess he just wants to go by Nino? 

BABY BLUE SO NERVOUS. Adrien’s such a good supportive friend. 

Sabine definitely is the quiet one between her and Tom, thus far I see him talk a lot more than her. I want to see more of Tom being a social butterfly. 

One of the classes they do have at school is PE.  

LB is able to make a web with her yo-yo. 

Tom and Sabine are both very sad to ground Marinette. It seems Tom needs more reassurance doing it than Sabine. 

Marinette was invited to be there for Nino’s show, but she isn’t there yet, he’s about to go on, and she’s only seeing him on tv atm. I’m guessing she wound up forgetting, remembered, about to rush away to support him but then the parentals stopped her. 

I notice, Chloe’s eyes are a much brighter blue than the mayor’s. 

The mayor evidently hates dancing. And Chloe hates soup. 

If Nino wins, he gets to continue competing. It seems Adrien will be too busy or has something scheduled next week so he won’t be able to make it to the next round. This is most likely Nino trying to help match make them (finally). 

No one is even upset at the tv station but HM already has eyes on it. I wonder if he’s capable of looking in on potential locations where he suspects someone could end up upset. 

Alya can get where Tom is coming from, actually looks kinda sad to back that yeah, Marinette is never where she should be, suggesting to me that sometimes Marinette had to go when they were hanging out. 

Alya suspects a possible double life that Marinette may have. Actually makes me think back to a concept I saw that Alya did know Marinette was LB, and was asking about LB’s powers. Maybe this right here could be a slight reference to that earlier concept. Or maybe this could be a hint to the reveal in s2, with possibly Alya learning Marinette is LB. 

Adrien is eager to say hi to new people. This friendly bean. 

Gorilla is protective, to a point of no chill. 

A lot like Chloe, the mayor can be a little dramatic when arguing against the truth. 

A happy Nino does a bow. 

Gabriel is known as the King of Fashion. 

Gabriel was misinformed and thought he was going to be sitting in for an interview.

If you like or think Gabe is HM, skip over the cursive, I’ll be making notes on anything that suggest or argues the idea of Gabe being HM. Cursive I’ll have as arguments. 

It’s shown earlier that HM already has eyes on this place for potential negativity, and is aware of the event that’s going on. Gabriel is unaware of what this show is and didn’t know it was going on. I see no reason for Gabe to pretend he doesn’t know the show. 

Nino was pumped to see Gabriel there, most likely for Adrien, aware that Adrien doesn’t see him often. Adrien is equally happy, though not as much as Nino. I feel Nino is aware that Adrien does want to spend time with his father more, so any possible chance for them to see each other is great, though Adrien himself seems aware that not much can be done at this point. Nino is such a good bro. 

“Hilarious, your show is pathetic.” Savage Gabriel. 

Gabriel scoffs at the idea of him ever being controlled and just leaves. Adrien isn’t surprised. I kinda want to see Gabriel at PTA meetings. 

In this show, having a contestant refuse a challenge is an automatic game over. That does feel unfair. Poor Simon! At least get him a new contestant Alec you ass! This guy is such an ass. Rubs a teenager’s loss in her face, is more than fine to kick out a contestant for something that isn’t in his control. You should have plenty of other celebrities that you can contact! Even the mayor had enough time to spare to pop in! 

…I don’t like Alec. 

…I’m kind of curious on what would happen if Jackady threw his possessed card at someone. How would you get the akuma if it disappears into the person? 


Gorilla’s ready to fight. Actually the first civilian to charge at an akuma, ready to get physical. 

Alya is babysitting, and that’s why she isn’t there supporting Nino (assuming they’re dating atm, or are on the way to dating). 

Despite this possibly getting Marinette into more trouble, Tikki deems LB duties are far more important. This is an issue she has come across before and has a fair idea on what to do so Marinette can sneak out. Cliche pillow under the bed. It has worked enough for Tikki to deem it a good idea. 

Marinette has really grown to love zipping around on her yo-yo. She has the biggest smile on her face. 

Chat is scared for his father. 

HM states that it’s risky, but also gives him an idea. He looks very smug and amused about the idea of going after Gabriel. For sure he knows Gabriel, though how personally I can’t say. And he isn’t turned off at the idea of attacking Gabriel at all, if this was Gabriel, I’d think he’d be a lot more unsure about this. HM also tells his akuma good luck, suggesting he is aware that Gabriel isn’t an easy target, possibly aware that Gabriel has the peacock miraculous and may use it. 

Actually it makes me think back to an idea I had of Gabriel working with HM, only the two have a very shaky partnership. Him being a partner of HM with a desire to get his wife back could offer an answer on Gabe’s strange behavior (aside from he’s HM), and HM being up to have his akuma go after Gabe could be his way of showing that he’s more dangerous than Gabriel, a display of power. 

Chat sneak attack! Successful. 

Gorilla just punched through a wall. Is his hand ok? Does magic protect him? 

Barrel roll. 

“I could use an army,” he says in a very happy tone. 

Move like zombies, oh hey Justin Extra!

Adrien has a sensei. I’m going to assume it’s D’Argencourt since Adrien bases a lot of his fighting style off fencing. I want to see Adrien call D’Argencourt sensei sometime and his teacher is more than fine with rolling with it. 

Nino refers to his best friend as “my boy Adrien”.

Adrien took karate, and quit. 

There goes cat son, fighting off his bodyguard and handling on his own. And there goes the Gorilla. Do we ever see him again? I’m assuming ML will make sure he’s fine but… I’m concerned. 

LB looks proud of her partner. 

With his father in danger, Chat is serious, no puns or jokes and is quick to inform LB of what’s going on. 

LB is inclined to find Adrien instead of go after the akuma (Tikki would disapprove). 

Chat feels bad about lying to LB and his friend. Nino is very concerned, touched Chat is up to let Adrien appear. 

Nino is always so eager to give Adrien a hug when seeing him again. I bet he’s trying to make up for the lack of hugs in the last year of Adrien’s life. 

And there he goes, pushing Nino out of the way for LB. Adrien is shy being himself before LB. I can literally see him thinking “Oh no she’s cute when she’s shy” and that soft smile. My gosh. These two are going to give me a cavity. 

Adrien though is quick to get to the point, his father being in danger overcomes the wonder of meeting LB as himself. If someone Adrien cares about is in danger, they’re going to be the top of Adrien’s priorities. 

Nino is just kinda staring into the void during this whole Ladrien scene. 

Gabriel does already know he’s in danger, if he is HM, this can provide why. Otherwise, he most likely learned about it from Nathalie or the news. 

Adrien is quick for his father to flee and get to safety. 

Gabriel is put off to the idea of fleeing and “being dictated”. This I find to point to the possibility of peacock!Gabriel, peacocks are known for standing their grown. 

Gabriel deems Adrien’s room is safe, and that he has had enough excitement for today. 

On not being HM, I find this suggests Gabriel doesn’t want to risk Adrien becoming and akuma. Gabriel looking through the book, he is likely aware that HM can make more than one akuma (as we see in Origins with Nooroo’s explanation, it’s a possibility, plus LB is getting a new power that helps her cleanse the akumatized meaning either more akumas or they become stronger and she needs a boost in cleansing power). 

Gabriel says they, extending protection to Nino as well. Nathalie puts an arm around Adrien’s shoulders, SHE DOES CARE.

Adrien takes after his mother, who Gabriel declares to be very overly dramatic. He sounds kind of a little exaggerated when revealing this suggesting to me that she’s quite reactive and dramatic a lot. 

Gabriel has full confidence in LB’s protection, by the smile on his face, the firmness in his voice, and setting a hand on her shoulder, it almost seems encouraging, to me anyway. 

It seems to me that he admires LB, or at least sees her potential as a hero. If he’s a miraculous veteran or his wife was a miraculous veteran, this could be why and he is compelled to encourage her. If he was HM, with how Gabriel isn’t afraid to speak his thoughts and how much HM hates LB to the point of dramatics, I don’t know if Gabe could contain himself, at least not this much with a big smile and sureness. Maybe it’s me, but it seems contradicting. 

Nino wonders if Gabriel’s a robot, Adrien reveals that he isn’t sure. Since last year, for sure Gabriel has really cut away from Adrien. 

Adrien’s room is for sure on the 2nd floor, possibly close to the stairwell. 

This is Nino’s first time being in Adrien’s room. 

Gabriel has a huge picture frame of Adrien’s pictures in his… office? He deems his son to be perfect, even after his annoyance with Adrien being “dramatic”.

For sure, Gabriel likes having a lot of portraits of the people he loves, which for sure is a point to him being HM, having a portrait of Mama in the brooch. I think him having all these pictures of Adrien is his way of coping with grief and being close to Adrien. He can see his son while he’s working and not needing to step away and actually see his son (he should though). For sure he does love his son, I do believe that. He’s pretty emotionally distant with Adrien through grief. 

Will we ever see Adrien play basket ball? I see him posing with a ball, and he has a basket ball court in his room. 

Gabriel has the softest smile I’ve ever seen on him when talking about Adrien. 

…Ok you can skip this whole paragraph cause I’m going to ramble, but Gabriel’s color scheme really intrigues me. So Chinese color symbolism seems to factor into ML, red a color of good luck and happiness, black represents protection, power, trust; purple spiritual awakening and physical/mental healing, pink is love, blue healing, conserving and trust, and white represents mourning. His color scheme is pinkish-white, white, grey, and red. If Chinese color symbolism does factor into the show, his color scheme means he’s mourning the loss of a loved one, grey meaning indefinite, and red suggesting that he’ll have happiness in his future, or he believes that happier times are coming. 

Gabriel bringing up the earrings and reaching for them is a point to HM. For sure LB is uncomfortable having Gabriel reach for her earrings. 

But he just looks on with a soft frown afterwards. He doesn’t appear passionate about taking the earrings. If anything, body language wise, he seems kind of reluctant and hesitant. 

Adrien knows about the security system. Gabriel wonders how Chat knows about it. For a split second, I can see Gabriel think “bullshit” to Chat’s fib but let’s go. Gabriel is confident in his security system, declaring his home to be a fortress. 

Aw poor Gorilla, Jackady uses him to stand above his army. 

Gabriel is genuinely surprised and concerned. 

Gabriel trusts Nathalie to go with LB to check on his son. 

Gabriel refuses to listen to Chat. He has some real issues about being told what to do, he really is someone that likes to be in control and have things done his way. 

To me, this makes me think that him being HM would be very frustrating to him cause HM never has any control with his akumas, and majority of the time they just do what they wanted. I actually see him just eventually snapping and reactivating the peacock to do it himself if he’s HM. 

A tense Adrien will snap back and lay down orders. Both Gabe and Chat are surprised. ANOTHER SOFT SMILE FROM GABRIEL. This is so nostalgic for him, fondly noting the temper. This suggest that Mama also had quite a fuse too and would snap at him when tense. 

Chat looks sad. 

Gabriel turns and stares fondly at Mama’s painting. He loves her so much. This is probably his favorite painting of her. 

HM withdraws from this plan, stating that this is a bad idea to attack Gabriel’s home, and starts pushing for the deal, getting the miraculouses. A point towards Gabriel being HM. 

If not and HM and Gabriel have a partnership, HM is now wary that his pushing his limits on said partnership and doesn’t want to break it. 

HM is able to sense LB and Chat close by, he can sense their presence through his akumas. 

Adrien’s background is his mother. 

LB is surprised to hear that Adrien’s taking a shower now. 

Nino kinda smirks here, probably well aware of Adrien’s crush on LB and is amused by the possibilities here. 



“If you must.” Lmao. 

Gabriel narrows his eyes to hear that LB is with his son. 

Adrien seems to have really accepted Mama’s loss, he is clearly sad that she’s gone, but over all I think he has moved on and seeks to live on with his life, move forward. 

It looks like Adrien’s room is right next to the stairwell in the foyer. And I also see another set of stairs across from Adrien’s room that likely go up to a third floor. 

Plagg truly does enjoy romance, Animan he was amused by Adrien and Nino fumbling around with Marinette, and here teases Adrien about the romantic moment he had with LB. Adrien isn’t bothered at all by Plagg’s teasing, if anything he’s delighted. Also Adrien isn’t bothered at all at the idea of LB liking Adrien, showing that he doesn’t see himself or Chat as two seperate people and that LB should like Chat instead. He’s just happy that LB seems to like him. 

Plagg is done with all of these transformations. 

Gabriel has pink buttons on hi sleeve. 

Gabriel is utterly furious. He looks ready to fight. 

Jackady’s minions can still talk. 

Gabriel’s office is in the foyer, close to the front door. 

Either Jackady really wanted to drive Gabriel up the wall, with Adrien’s pictures are all scattered across the floor. Or Gabriel actually fought them off, showing that he does know how to fight and probably held off a good many of the minions on his own before he was overwhelmed. Either Peacock, Butterfly, or/and husband to a previous miraculous user, Gabriel is tough (if he did fight Jackady’s minions off). 

Ok, Gorilla is perfectly fine. He’s alive. He’s ok. Still mind controlled, but he’s ok. And they have only Gorilla restraining Gabriel. With Gorilla strong enough to punch through walls, this suggest that yes, Gabriel fought off a lot of the minions and Jackady needed the strongest to restrain Gabriel. 

Gabriel doesn’t look scared, I’m seeing hints of shade. 

“You’re now a butterfly.” I wonder if we’re being teased or if this is actual foreshadowing. 

There he goes, frolicking. Frolic away Gabriel! 

Chat is horrified to see Gabriel’s hypnotized. 

LB’s yo-yo actually broke. It is possible to break a miraculous weapon/tool. 

This is probably one of the best Chat has been as a hero, taking this situation seriously and not goofing around. I find that’s why there is an imbalance in LB and Chat, it’s because Adrien isn’t taking heroing as seriously as LB and does goof around a bit. It’s something he needs to learn, and maybe two newbees may push him to step up. But for sure, Jackady, Animan, and Darkblade do cover how capable Chat can be as a hero, especially when he isn’t being silly. 

Adrien sings “NAHNAHANHANAH” (or something like that) to drown out Jackady. I wonder if Adrien did that as a kid when he and his parents were having a disagreement, he didn’t want to hear them telling him what to do and just wanted to sing over them. 

I find it kinda cute that airplane!Gabriel echoes the sound of an engine as he goes. 

Adrien’s first instinct is to go after his father, not help LB. He does accept her logic and stays. 

LB can’t use the Lucky Charm yo-yo to cleanse the akuma, and this is one of the two cases so far where she has to use ML before cleansing the akuma (the other being Pixelator). 

LB adores her yo-yo. 

Gabriel doesn’t seem too impressed with Chat, mostly likely because most of the time, Chat does goof off. Chat is aware of it and the fact that Gabriel seems to prefer LB. He isn’t bothered. Probably thinking “yes, dad approves” XD

For a split second, Gabriel has his eyes narrowed and is staring off into space, suggesting that he’s not really listening to Chat and is thinking. 

If partners with HM this could be him rethinking the events of this episode and HM possibly pushed too far. Or he could just be thinking of his close fatal encounter. 

Gabriel does look at the ring, Chat notices and withdraws from him with a guarded look. 

Gabriel looks away with narrowed eyes again, a slight frown on his face. This could be him being frustrated that he failed to get both miraculouses.

Though he is left alone with LB right now, her guard is down and watching Chat go, Chat, who is about to detransform. Gabriel doesn’t make a move here though, which seemed like a perfect chance if he was HM, and LB is his biggest threat. 

Another shot with the Eiffel Tower close to the Agreste manor, the other being in Antibug. HM’s lair is far from the Eiffel Tower, we see it every episode. It’s very likely that Gabe and HM were in two very different locations and it does strongly suggest to me they are two different people, unless the butterfly miraculous can teleport but I feel that’s something he would exploit a long time ago, join the fight, teleport away when it’s too dangerous. 

Mama was very physically affectionate. A lot of the shots have her embracing Adrien. Through Mama, Adrien is pretty comfortable with physical touch and affection, especially from people he’s comfortable with. Through Gabriel, Adrien isn’t too comfortable with certain touches (like Chloe and Lila grabbing him and invading his space for example), and Adrien and shoulder touch, that habit may come from Gabriel since we do see he is more than fine touching people’s shoulders, especially if he (evidently) likes them. 

Gabriel doesn’t knock, he just enters. 

Adrien stands to Gabriel’s chest, just below his collar bone. Barely touching it. With the expression he has coming into the room and how he comes into the room, Gabriel really isn’t a character that shows what he’s feeling, acts like nothing is wrong, he has control, and moves with a purpose. 

This is probably the biggest issue I have on Gabe being HM, they’re so opposite. Where Gabriel is still, poised, and quiet; HM is expressive, dramatic, and loud. And we do see Gabriel doesn’t care if he upsets someone or they aren’t impressed with him, so it’s really odd for me for him to be HM behavior wise. With who he is, I can’t see him hiding away a more dramatic side in a dark room full of butterflies. He’d let it show, express himself, he has no trouble doing that. So if he is HM, it’s really strange to me that he would save the more expressive and dramatic side when he’s alone. It’s not impossible but… it’s odd to me. 

Huuuuuuugs, with Gabriel having to bend down to hug his son. I feel this is the first hug ever between Gabriel and Adrien in a year, especially by Adrien’s reaction. 

Gabriel is pretty unnerved to see his son with the ring. Adrien is bothered and defensive. Plagg is very concerned for Adrien, doesn’t know what to say. Though by how he looks at the ring first, I wonder if he fears that Gabriel may suspect Adrien is Chat. 

If Gbae was HM, this would’ve been another good chance to take the ring, especially if he thinks that is the miraculous. If not now, he can take while Adrien’s sleeping, reassure himself it would be worth it in the end. Plus, no Chat, it would leave LB alone. While she is capable on her own, she would struggle without Chat, with him usually taking the heat of battle and giving her time to plan. And I don’t recall her getting out of a trap by herself, relying on Chat to get her out. 

But he doesn’t, he’s just unsettled, goes stiff, and leaves the matter alone (for now). To the point of Volpina, Adrien doesn’t feel guarded about Gabriel possibly suspecting he’s Chat. At least it doesn’t seem he is, I’ll have to see when I get there. 

Marinette is able to get on top of everything in a week and is relieved of being grounded. She’s inclined to spend time with her family instead of physically going up there. I wonder if she’s even aware that Adrien was able to make it. 

Nino chooses LB and Chat to be his challenge, he is comfortable enough with them to pick them. Even refers to them as “buds” . 

Marinette’s like oh shit. 

I think this is the most I’ve seen Sabine talk. 

Tom and Sabine seem unaware that Marinette is LB. 

Personal thoughts on the Gabriel/HM matter, for some people this ep confirmed it; me I’m a bit baffled. There are details that don’t click or add up. Of the cast we have so far, I can agree that Gabriel is the most likely candidate for HM, and if he is HM, I hope they are able to do the story with him well. But so far, I’m inclined to believe they’re two separate characters. I’m actually really leaning to the idea that Gabriel is working with HM but isn’t 100% on board and he and HM don’t entirely get along. 

But we’ll see s2, nothing is set in stone yet. HM may be Gabriel, he may not. For sure, either way, I hope the story is done well.

그룹 방탄소년단이 확실한 대세가 됐다. 지난 11월 30일 공개된 미니앨범 ‘화양연화 pt.2’ 타이틀곡 ‘런(Run)’이 각종 음원차트 1위를 차지했다. 지난 2013년 데뷔해 꾸준히 글로벌 팬덤을 쌓았던 방탄소년단은 이제 팬덤을 넘어 음원차트 정상까지 이룩했다.

Group BTS has definitely become a major trend(ing idol). The title track ‘RUN’ of their mini album “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life pt.2,″ released on Nov. 30th, took 1st place on all kinds of music charts. BTS, who has steadily been building their global fandom since their debut in 2013, has now surpassed the fandom and has achieved becoming a common name on music charts.
(T/N: “surpassed growing their fandom”
They’re on the music charts so often that it’s common to see their name)

방탄소년단은 데뷔곡 ‘노 모어 드림’부터 강렬한 퍼포먼스와 칼군무로 매력을 알렸던 그룹. 이번 타이틀곡 ‘런’ 퍼포먼스 또한 기대를 모으고 있다. 방탄소년단은 이번 컴백을 앞두고 지난 27~29일 열린 단독콘서트에서 ‘런’ 무대를 팬들에게 먼저 공개했다. 또, 2일 열리는 ‘2015 MAMA’에서 ‘런’ 무대를 방송 최초 공개하면서 역대급 컴백 스케일을 자랑한다. 퍼포먼스 최초 공개에 대한 큰 의미를 담은 것. 그만큼 ‘런’ 무대에 쏠리는 기대가 크다.

BTS is a group that has showed their powerful performances and knife-like group dancing charm since their debut track ‘No More Dream.’ They are gathering anticipation this time also for their title track ‘Run’ performance. BTS, with their comeback coming up, released their ‘Run’ stage first to their fans at a solo concert this past 27th~29th. Also at the ‘2015 MAMA’ that will open on the 2nd, they will broadcast their ‘Run’ stage for the first time and show off on a grade A scale comeback (T/N: also “one of the best/biggest scale comebacks so far”). They put great meaning into their first broadcast performance. And the anticipation that is rising for their ‘Run’ stage/performance is that much greater, 

‘런’ 퍼포먼스에 대한 기대는 단순히 퍼포먼스를 잘했던 그룹이라 거는 기대가 아니다. 방탄소년단은 지난 4월 ‘화양연화 pt.1’ 활동 이후 월드투어를 성공적으로 끝마치며 또 한 뼘의 성장을 이뤘다. 데뷔 전부터 함께했던 손성득 안무가와의 팀워크도 더 끈끈해졌다. 더 많아진 무대 경험만큼, 방탄소년단의 퍼포먼스 표현력도 더 성장했을 터. ‘런’ 퍼포먼스에 대한 기대는 방탄소년단의 성장에 대한 기대가 함께 녹아있다.

Anticipation of the ‘Run’ performance is not simply because this group has always performed well. This past April, after ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life pt.1′ activities/promotions, BTS successfully finished their world tour and grew (matured) even more. Their teamwork with choreographer Son Sungdeuk, who has been with them since pre-debut, has also become stronger. As much stage experience they have earned, BTS’ performance expression has also grown. The anticipation for the ‘Run’ performance is also combined with anticipation of BTS’ (future) growth.

손성득 안무가 인터뷰를 하던 날, 방탄소년단의 ‘이틀 째 연습 중’인  ‘런’ 안무 연습 영상을 보게 됐다. ‘이틀째’라는 말이 믿기지 않을 정도로 완성된 모습이었다. 손성득 안무가도 “습득력이 빨라졌다”며 방탄소년단의 실력에 고개를 끄덕였다. 손성득 안무가는 ‘런’으로 어떤 그림을 그렸을까. 그에게서 방탄소년단의 성장과 신곡 ‘런’에 대해 들었다.

The day I interviewed choreographer Son Sungdeuk, I was able to see BTS’ ‘Second Day of Practice’ ‘Run’ dance practice video. Their appearance was so finished that I couldn’t believe that it was the “Second Day.” Choreographer Son Sungdeuk also nodded at BTS’ skills, saying their “acquisition (of dance moves) has become quick(er).” What kind of picture has choreographer Son Sungdeuk painted with ‘Run’? We listened to what he had to say about BTS’ growth (development) and their new track ‘Run.”

Q. 방탄소년단을 데뷔부터 함께 했어요. 지금의 방탄소년단을 보면 감회가 남다를 것 같아요. 

손성득 : 제일 큰 차이점은 빨리 외워요. 정말 지금은 나비가 됐어요. 예전엔 멤버들이 실제로도 못했고, 진이나 랩몬스터는 걷는 것도 어색한 애들이었는데 지금은 우리가 ‘이틀인데도 다 외웠네’라고 할 정도로 놀라요. 데뷔 때는 표정이나 제스처, 시선까지 잡아줬는데 지금은 수월해졌어요. 또 제가 쉴 때는 제이홉이 알아서 부족한 것을 시키면서 연습에 체계가 많이 잡혔어요.

Q. You’ve been with BTS since (their) debut. It seems that when you look at BTS now, the feeling is completely different.

SSD: The biggest difference is that they memorize it (the dance) quickly. They’ve really become butterflies now. The members back then really couldn’t dance, and in the case of Jin or Rap Monster, even the way those kids walked was awkward, but now we are at the point where we are surprised that “It’s only been two days but we’ve memorized it all.” During debut time, I corrected their expressions and gestures and even their gaze focus, but now it’s become easy (for them). Also, when I’m resting, J-Hope, on his own, tells them to work on parts that are lacking, and the practice system has become more structured.

Q. 예전 인터뷰에서 제이홉에 대한 고마움을 표현한 적이 있어요. 안무 연습에 있어서 제이홉 역할이 큰가 봐요. 

손성득 : 제이홉은 지금도 역시나 여전히 큰 역할을 하고 있어요. 제이홉이 춤을 잘 춰서 체력이 좋다고 하는데 생각보다 말라서 체력이 좋은 것도 아니예요. 하하. 그런데 연습에 대한 사명감이 있어요. 애들을 많이 이끌어가는 분위기에요.

Q. In a previous interview, there was a time where you expressed your gratitude for J-Hope. J-Hope’s role (responsibility) in terms of dance practice must be big.

SSD: Even now, as always, J-Hope is certainly taking on a big role. They say it’s because J-Hope is good at dancing and his strength/stamina is good but because he’s thin his strength/stamina isn’t (that) good actually. Ha ha. However, he has a sense of duty when it comes to practice. He leads the other members a lot.

Q. 이번 ‘런’은 콘서트로 먼저 공개가 되요. 평소 컴백을 준비할 때랑 다를 것 같아요.  
손성득 : 팬들이 제일 먼저 보는 것이니까요. 따로 쇼케이스를 하는 것도 아니고, 계속 해외 콘서트를 하고 컴백 전 마지막으로 서울로 왔는데 그런 시점에서 팬들에게 제일 먼저 보여주는 것이 의미가 커요.

Q. ‘Run’ is being released at a concert first. It seems that preparing for this comeback is different from that of the usual comeback.

SSD: (Yes) Since fans are the first ones to see it. And it’s not like we’re holding a special showcase; at this kind of time, in between finishing their overseas concert(s) and being in Seoul before the comeback, we/they are showing this to the fans firs,t so it has a very big (great) meaning.

Q. ‘런’을 처음 딱 들었을 때 어땠나요? 

손성득 : 처음엔 막막했어요. 안무를 짤 때 한 번 꽂히지 않으면 쥐어짜는 스타일이에요. ‘런’은 그나마 수월했던 것이 ‘아이 니드 유(I NEED U)’의 연장선이고, 우리가 계속 청춘을 이야기하고 있었잖아요. 아름다운데 슬프고, 불안하고. 제목도 ‘런’이고, 울면서 달리는 느낌적인 틀은 많이 나왔죠. 프롤로그나 뮤직비디오나 이전 영상을 보면서 생각이 났어요. ‘런’ 안무의 엔딩이 나비예요. 저번엔 꽃이면 이번엔 나비죠. 엔딩 때 나비로도 끝나고, 달리는 동작만 하면 너무 뻔하니 애들이 슬프고 파워풀한데 그 안에서 섹시한 느낌을 놓칠 수 없었어요.

Q. How did you feel (What did you think) when you heard ‘Run’ for the first time?

SSD: In the beginning I was stuck. When planning choreography, if it doesn’t hit you at once (inspiration) then you have to rack your brain for it (squeeze it out). The easy thing about ‘Run’ was that it was a continuation of I NEED U, and we were still telling the story of youth. It’s beautiful but sad, anxious. The title is ‘Run,’ so a lot of ‘running while crying’-feel moves came out (of the planning). I got the idea while watching the prologue, music video, and (our) past videos. The ending for ‘Run’ choreography is a butterfly. Last time it was a flower, and this time it’s a butterfly. It ends with a butterfly, and since if I only included a running motion it would be too obvious, I couldn’t leave out (made sure to preserve) how even though the kids are sad and powerful, within that there is a sexy feel. 

Q. 그러고 보니 진 파트는 ‘아이 니드 유’랑 비슷한 느낌도 있어요. 

손성득 : 구성 자체가 그렇긴 해요. 진이 부분에서 클로즈업을 했을 때 나비를 잡아서 보내는 액팅이 있어요. 이 부분을 꼭 잡아줬으면 좋겠다는 상상을 해요.

Q. Now that you mention it, Jin’s part (in ‘Run’) seems to have a similar feel to the one in ‘I NEED U.’

SSD: The composition itself is indeed like that. In one part, when Jin has a close up, he has an acting (scene) where he grabs a butterfly and then lets it go. I think it would be great to specifically focus on that part.

Q. 또 카메라가 꼭 잡아줬으면 좋겠다는 부분이 있다면요.

손성득 : 나비가 제일 중요해요. 진 부분과 엔딩 부분. 사람들이 봤을 때 ‘뭐지?’ 라고 할 수도 있는데 그만큼 진이가 연기를 잘해야 해요. 또 멤버들이 춤으로 무슨 이야기를 하고 있는지 봐줬으면 좋겠어요. 항상 안무를 짤 때 가사에 맞춰서 안무를 표현하는 스타일인데 방탄소년단은 또 랩이 많이 들어가요. 그렇기 때문에 춤만 따로 추면 춤 따로, 노래 따로가 되버려요. 보면서 들으면서 똑같은 이야기를 들을 수 있는 무대를 만들고 싶어요. 방탄소년단이 왜 이런 표정을 짓고, 이런 동작을 했는지 봐줬으면 좋겠어요.

Q. If there is one more part that you hope the camera will specifically focus on(?)

SSD: The butterfly is most important. Jin’s part and the ending part. People may say ‘What’s that?’ when they see it, so Jin has too act it out well enough. Also, I would like it if the audience/fan looked at (T/N: paid attention to, tried to figure out) what kind of story the members are telling through the dance. Every time I plan choreography, my style is that I always express the lyrics through the dance, but with BTS, there is also a lot of rap (in their songs). Therefore, if they just dance separately, the dance will be separate, the song will be separate (T/N: he means no harmony of dance and music). I want to create a stage (performance) where you can see and hear the same story. I would like it if the audience/fans looked at why BTS shows these expressions, why they did (chose) these movements.

Q. ‘런’에서 방탄소년단의 어떤 모습을 보여주고 싶었나요?

손성득 : 딱히 보여주겠다는 느낌보단 조금은 더 에너제틱한. ‘아이 니드 유’는 소프트하게 갔다면, 이번에는 조금은 더 에너제틱한 모습을 표현하고 싶어서 안무가 조금 더 들어갔다. 기존의 방탄소년단에 ‘아이 니드 유’를 섞은 느낌이에요.

Q. What kind of image did you want BTS to show with ‘Run’?

SSD: Instead of wanting to show something specific, (be) a little more energetic. If ‘I NEED U’ was soft, this time I wanted to express a slightly more energetic image, so I added a little more choreography. The feel is basic (’Run’) choreography with BTS’ ‘I NEED U’ mixed in.

Q. 안무나 콘셉트를 짜는 것에 있어서 멤버들과 이야기를 많이 하나요?

손성득 : 멤버들도 가사를 쓰니까 이야기를 많이 해요. 제가 안무를 짤 때 여러 가지를 고민하고 있으면 ‘이게 좋을 것 같다’식으로 의견을 표현하죠. 개인 파트 부분들도 액팅이나 자기들이 알아서 해요. 꼭 해야 하는 것들은 짚어주는데 다들 스스로 연구를 하고 와요. 1을 말하면 10을 해오죠. 솔직히 다른 가수들에 비해서 방탄소년단을 만난 게 운이 좋은 것이에요. 아무리 안무를 잘 만들어도 누가 하느냐가 중요한데 1짜리 안무 만들면 10으로 해주는 것 같아서 정말 좋아요.

Q. In terms of planning the choreography or concept, do you talk (it over) with the members a lot?

SSD: Since the members write lyrics, I do talk about it with them a lot. When I’m planning the choreography and worrying about (considering deeply) many things, they express their opinions in a ‘I think this will be good’ way. For solo parts also, the acting and such, they do it (figure it out) on their own. I point out things that we absolutely have to do (include) but everyone researches on their own before coming. When I say 1 thing, they do 10 things. Honestly, compared to other artists, I think it’s good luck that I met BTS. Even if I make great choreography, it’s (more) important who does/performs it, and I really like that when I make a level 1 choreography (a dance as good as ‘1′) they do/perform it as a 10.

Q. 지금까지 작업했던 것 중 가장 뿌듯한 방탄소년단 안무는 무엇인가요?

손성득 : ‘노 모어 드림(No more dream)’이랑’ 위아 불렛 프루프 파트 2(We Are Bulletproof Pt2, 이하 위불프2)’, ‘좋아요’까지가 좋아요. ‘좋아요’는 지금도 콘서트에서 들으면 짠해요. ‘노 모어 드림’, ‘위불프2’는 히스토리도 많고, 안무 수정도 진짜 많이 했어요. 애들도 이를 갈고 열심히 했어요. 개인적으로 제일 애착이 가고, 그것 때문에 방탄소년단이 초반에 퍼포먼스적으로 어필이 됐어요.

Q. Out of all the BTS choreographies that you’ve worked on so far, which one are you most proud of?

SSD: I like ‘No More Dream,’ ‘We Are Bulletproof Pt2,’ and ‘I Like It.’ Even now when I hear ‘I Like It’ at a concert, I feel emotional. ‘No More Dream,’ ‘We Are Bulletproof Pt2′ has a lot of history, and we really modified the choreography a lot (many times). The kids also grit their teeth and worked hard. Personally, I have the most affection for those, and because of those (choreographies), BTS was appealing in terms of performance from the (very) start.

Q. 그렇다면 가장 아쉬운 안무는요?  

손성득 : 아쉽다기 보다는 ‘엔오(N.O)’가 생각나네요. ‘엔오’의 노래와 안무를 정말 좋아하는데, 정말 너무 좋아하는데 그 앨범이 잘되진 않았어요. 빛을 많이 받지 않은 것 같아서 아쉬워요. ‘엔오’ 안무에 대해 많이 봐줬으면 좋겠어요. 해외 워크숍 같은 것을 나가면 항상 ‘엔오’를 보여줘요. 그 춤을 꼭 많이 보여주고 싶어요.

Q. Then the most disappointing choreography? (T/N: Choreography he was disappointed in / felt was lacking / did not do as well compared to expectation / thinks he could have improved on)

SSD: Not really disappointing, but I do think of N.O. I really like N.O music and choreography, I really like it but the album didn’t do well. I think it’s too bad because it seems like the album didn’t receive a lot of light (wasn’t noticed a lot). I’d like it if fans/audience looked toward ‘N.O’ choreography a lot. When I go to overseas workshops, I always show ‘N.O’. I truly want to show that dance a lot.

Q. ‘쩔어’ 원테이크 퍼포먼스도 화제였어요. 랩몬스터의 시작도 인상깊었고요.

손성득 : ‘쩔어’ 자체 콘셉트에 맞춰 남준이가 되게 잘했다고 생각이 들어요. 원래 원테이크 기법은 정말 예전부터 하려고 했어요. 데뷔 전부터 생각했어요. 외국 안무가들 영상을 보면 원테이크 기법이 유행했는데 한국에서는 어떻게 보면 유행이 늦었죠. 신인이 원테이크를 하기엔 좀 이른 것 같아서 ‘쩔어’ 때 시도하게 됐어요.

Q. There’s also the topic of ‘Dope’’s one take performance. Rap Monster’s start also left a strong impression.

SSD: I think Namjoonie did well (his starting part) in really matching ‘Dope’’s concept. Actually, I was planning on using the one take technique for a long time. I was thinking of it even before debut. If you look at foreign choreographers’ videos, the one take technique was trending, so in a way the trend came late in Korea. I thought it was a little (too early) for a rookie group to do a one take so I ended up trying it for ‘Dope’.

Q. 방탄소년단이 어느 정도 자리를 잡았다고 생각한 건 언제였나요?

손성득 : 팬들이 방송국 앞에 많은 것을 보면서도 느끼지만, 처음에 일본에 갔을 때 클럽 같은 데서 공연을 했었거든요. 그때 사람이 진짜 없었어요. 작은 공연장에서 공연하는 모습을 내려다보는데 언젠가는 우리도 더 크겠지 생각했어요. 또 오사카에 있는 케이팝 굿즈샵을 들어갔는데 방탄소년단 사진이 하나도 없었어요. 그때는 방탄소년단 앨범이 아예 일본에서 나오기 전이었어요. 그 후에 일본 콘서트를 갔는데 미국도 그렇고, 그 팬덤을 보면서 많이 성장했고, 많이 왔다고 생각이 들었어요. 이후 ‘아이 니드 유’ 활동할 때 물이 올랐다는 것을 느꼈어요. 지민이나 정국이랑 센 것만 해서 내면적인 연기를 못할 줄 알았는데 성장했다는 것이 표현된 것을 보고 고개를 끄덕였죠. 

Q. When did you think that BTS had more or less settled down? (T/N: adjusted to their surroundings / lost the ‘rookie’ or ‘unprepared’ feel)

SSD: I feel it as I see the many fans outside of the broadcast agencies (for live show/pre-recording), but (also) when we first went to Japan we had a performance at a club-like place. There really wasn’t a lot of a people then. I looked down at them performing at the small performing venue/theater and I thought ‘we’ll get bigger one day, right?’. Also, I went into a K-Pop goods shop in Osaka, and there wasn’t even one photo of BTS. At that time, BTS’ album hadn’t even come out in Japan yet. After that, we went to (have) the Japan concert, and the U.S. one too, (and) while looking at the (growth of the) fandom, I realized (thought) that they had grown a lot and had really come far. Afterwards, at the time of ‘I NEED U’ promotions, I felt that they had improved/were in prime condition. In terms of Jimin or Jungkook, because they had only performed/shown strong images, I thought they wouldn’t be able to do introspective acting, but after seeing that they could express their growth/maturity, I nodded my head. (T/N: was satisfied / acknowledged them)

Q. 이 기회에 방탄소년단 개인별 매력에 대해서 말해주세요.

손성득 : 랩몬스터는 옷을 잘 입어요. 비주얼이 처음 봤을 때 말도 안됐는데 진짜 멋있어졌어요. 하하. 옷에 관심도 많고, 진짜 제일 멋있어졌어요. 리더로서의 아우라도 나오고, 카리스마도 있고. 슈가는 진짜 생각이 깊어요. 점잖아요. 애들 중에 제일 말이 잘 통해요. 진이는 맏형이다 보니 능글맞아졌는데 말도 많이 섞어요. 제일 많이 혼나던 애인데 이제는 편하고 가까워졌어요. 노련해졌죠. 진짜 긍정적이에요. 정국이는 진짜 순수해요. 데뷔 때랑 지금이랑 변함없어요. 15세 때 처음 봤던 정국이 그대로에요. 몸은 남자가 됐어요. 제이홉은 진짜 고마워요. 진짜 힘들 법도 한데 듬직해요. 팀 자체는 랩몬스터가 리더지만, 댄스에 있어서는 누구보다도 큰 힘이 되는 친구에요. 알아서 다 정리해요. 지민이는 좋은 욕심이 진짜 많아요. 연습벌레에요. 지금도 노래 연습을 정말 많이 해요. 자신이 부족한 것에 대해서 채워 나가려고 연습해요. 남아서도 연습하죠. 뷔도 멍한 매력이 있어요. 뷔 덕분에 많이 웃기도 해요. 안무를 배울 때 안무 외에도 자신의 파트에서 무엇을 더할지 생각해줘요. 끼가 장난 아니죠. 뷔가 기억력도 좋아요. 춤에 어느 정도 재능이 있어요.

Q. Since the opportunity arises, please tell us about BTS’ individual charms.

SSD: Rap Monster dresses well. I couldn’t believe his visual (T/N: it was bad) when I first saw him, but he’s really become cool/stylish. Ha ha. He has a lot of interest in clothing, and he’s really become the most cool/stylish (out of the other members). He (now) gives off the ‘leader aura’ as the leader, and he has charisma too. Suga’s thinking is really deep. He’s very well-mannered (T/N: can also mean gentle, respectable, like a ‘gentleman’). Out of all of them, it’s easiest to communicate with him (T/N: they understand each other the best / Suga ‘gets’ him the most). Jin, since he’s the eldest hyung, used to be sly (T/N: can also mean slighly prideful or stiff in terms of associating with others) but we talk a lot (now). He used to be the one who got in the most trouble (was called out/punished the most) but now we’re comfortable (with each other) and we’ve become close. He’s become mature.  He’s really positive. Jungkookie is really innocent (T/N: can also mean pure, genuine). He hasn’t changed any since debut. He’s the same 15 year old Jungkookie that I met on the first day (that first time). His body has become that of a man (though). I’m really thankful toward J-Hope. It must (definitely) be difficult (T/N: referrring to J-Hope being the dance leader) but he’s dependable (reliable). Rap Monster is the leader for the team itself, but in terms of dance, J-Hope’s the one who, more than any of the other members, is the/our greatest strength. He organizes everything on his own. Jiminnie has a lot of good/positive aspirations (T/N: actual word is ‘greed’ but since that has a negative connotation, I changed it). He’s a work bug (T/N: Korean expression for someone who’s always working diligently). Even now, he practices singing a lot. He practices to fill in the things he believes are lacking (in himself). He stays behind and practices (too). V also has a blank/dazed charm. I/we also laugh a lot because of V. When they’re learning the choreography, he thinks (for us) about what else he can do for his part. His sense is no joke (T/N: it’s really good) (T/N: ‘sense’ also means ‘talent,’ refers to how quickly he picks up/learns the dance and how well he notices what is missing/what could be added; good ‘sense’). V has good memory too. He does have talent in dancing (to an extent).

Q. 지민, 정국, 제이홉이 댄스에 두각을 나타내는 멤버잖아요. 어떤 차이가 있나요? 

손성득 : 지민이랑 정국, 홉 매력이 달라요. 홉이는 힙합 느낌이 강하고, 스트릿 힙합을 했던 친구라 연습생 때 버릇을 고치려고 고생을 많이 했어요. 테크니컬적인 웨이브, 팝핀을 잘하죠. 정국이는 힘이 좋고, 선이 예쁘고, 자신이 뭐가 예쁜지 알아요. 정확한 동작에 맛을 가미할 줄 알죠. 정석은 정국이 잘하고, 테크닉은 홉이 잘하고. 지민은 무용했던 친구라 선이 예뻐요. 소프트한데 강한 매력이 있죠.

Q. Jimin, Jungkook, J-Hope are the members (most) distinguished for their dancing. What differences are there (among them in terms of dancing)?

SSD: Jiminnie and Jungkook, Hope’s charms are different. Hobi’s dancing has a strong hip hop feel, and because he’s someone who used to do street hip hop, he really suffered/had to work hard to get rid of those habits from his time as a trainee. He’s good at technical waves and popping. Jungkook has good strength, his lines are pretty, and he himself knows what is pretty (what looks good). He knows how to add (in) the correct/precise movements. Jungkook’s good at standard (T/N: He performs the basics very precisely) and Hobi is good at technique. Jiminnie used to do classical dance/ballet so his lines are pretty. He has the soft but powerful charm. 

Q. 앞으로 방탄소년단은 또 어떻게 됐으면 좋겠나요?

손성득 : 개인적으로 대중성 있게 간 것이 잘 왔다고 생각해요. 앞으로는 음악이요. 무대 퍼포먼스보다는 어떤 음악을 하든 간에 하고 싶은 음악과 진정성 있는 음악을 했으면 좋겠어요. 아이돌로서의 음악이 있지만, 아이돌로서 한계도 있는데 이 친구들이 진짜 하고 싶고, 하려고 하고, 멤버들이 이야기하고 싶은 삶의 이야기를 많이 했으면 좋겠어요. 진짜 음악 잘하는 애들이에요. 가사 같은 것, 노래 쓴 것 봐도 깜짝깜짝 놀라요. 

Q. In the future/From now on, how would you like BTS to turn out? 

SSD: Personally, I think it was good to have popular/mass appeal and go/come this way (T/N: in terms of promoting/group style). From now on, it’s the music. More (important) than the stage performance, whatever music they do, I want/would like them to do music that they want to do and music that is sincere/genuine. Though there is certain music (structure) for idols, and there are some limitations for idols, I want these kids to really want to do it (music/dance, etc.), work/try (hard) to do it, and really tell (all) the (members’) life stories that they want to tell. These kids are really good at music. When I look at things like (how they write) lyrics, composing/producing music, I’m really surprised again and again.

T/N: It’s finally done! I think I cried a few times no joke. (I cried 3 times reading the other interview about Mr. Son’s personal story, which I will be translating next. Seriously, this man is my daily inspiration and role model and so is Bangtan haha ^^) Please remember to take out with credits and share this a lot ~ Thank you!

WINGS Short Film #6: MAMA - Image Breakdown

On to Hoseok and Jihope, as we predicted. Now, this one is a little easier to understand than Namjoon’s. This is written quite early, as I’m so excited so I might put a few reblogs and edits into it later. Enjoy! :)

1) As usual, Namjoon’s ‘Demian’ reading: “With a face that resembled her son’s, timeless, ageless, and full of inner strength, the beautiful woman smiled with dignity. Her gaze was fulfillment, her greeting a homecoming. Silently I stretched my hands out to her.

Didn’t Jimin stretch out his hands to Hoseok’s empty bed too?

2) Hoseok seems to be lying in a room for suicidal patients.

3) Notice how Hoseok and Jimin are wearing the same pajamas. Looks like they are in the same ‘hospital’. They are in the same place but apart from each other. ;___;
