I wanted… to die. I thought I had to apologize to Mom… But… I couldn’t do it. I wondered… what you guys would think if I died. I thought something fun might be in store for tomorrow, too. I thought, “I don’t want to die yet!”
I’ve been meaning to do a compilation of Tian Xiaopeng’s weibo posts for some time, and here it is. He’s the director of Monkey King: Hero is Back (2015) and this is his weibo. He updates sporadically, but apparently did a Q&A session with fans back in summer of 2015. I put together and translated some of the best responses below (the rest can be found on his blog).
Q: What’s up with the White Dragon, at the end [he] went to battle Hun Dun with the Great Sage? The White Dragon was tamed by the Great Sage?
A: They [Wukong/White Dragon] had a 2-hour discussion, but it was edited out.
Q: Director, how come Wukong, Tang monk, Zhu Bajie, and even Xiao Bailong, showed up in the movie, but Friar Sand (Wujing) didn’t?
A: [He was] holding the camera.
Q: In the sequel, can you not change Friar Sand into a girl, I can’t accept changes that are too absurd
A: [If] everyone becomes a girl, [only] Friar Sand will not, I promise
Q: The Great Sage is just 1 pilgrim, but he ends up with a son and daughter, and does a good job taking care of the silly girl, where’d he get the experience?
A: In the past, he took care of monkeys in Flower Fruit Mountain
Q: Now that so many girls want to have the Great Sage’s babies, how do you feel? hahaha
A: I hate that my face isn’t longer (Note: Director thinks Wukong’s defining design trait is his long horse-face and didn’t think it’d be considered attractive- now he must face the irony LMAO)
Q: I think about how other people’s boyfriends spend money taking their girlfriends to the movies… but I have to spend my own money at the movies in order to see my boyfriend, have you thought about the hearts of us fangirls?
A: I have to spend my own money to see my own movie in theaters, I’m worse off than you.
(Note: I thought the asker was complaining about her love life to the director, before I realized her “boyfriend” is actually Wukong LOL)
Q: Look at me look at me! Not counting Hun Dun and the pig, how did everyone else know about the Great Sage causing havoc in heaven! They even made a shadow puppet show! Who in the three realms let this event get to the mortal realm?
“…Babe?” Again, no answer from the boy who was sitting on the couch, laptop on his lap.
“Taeyong.” Yet again, you receive no response from your boyfriend. You were standing by the kitchen entrance, staring at him with a frown. Was he giving you some sort of silent treatment? But what did you even do?
You slowly approach him but then come to a sudden stop. You want to try and recall the events that happened between you, so that’s what you do.
Did anything happen this morning? I don’t think I did anything to upset him or make him mad, did I? I made him breakfast and we ate together… This afternoon… Oh! I remember! We went shopping and… we took selfies! Then I criticized him. I made fun of his photo taking skills. Also because the filters were ugly. Right. Oh Taeyong…
Earlier in the day, both of you decided to go shopping, getting information from your friend that there were sales going on. When you were inside one store, Taeyong asked you to join him in his mirror selfie and you happily agreed. In another, he had asked you again to take a selfie with him while standing in a section full of hoodies. You didn’t ask why and just joined him. The thing was, while the both of you went to go eat, you saw him editing your selfies from earlier and you pointed out that the filters were really ugly. Your criticism probably made him feel bad and upset. On the way home though, he looked fine. But once you reached home, he’s been in his whole world.
You sigh and walk towards him.
“Taeyongie…” His legs were spread out a bit so you stay between them. “I think I know why you’re upset.” You slowly lift up his chin with your hand as the other one rests on his shoulder. The laptop is the only thing blocking you from sitting on his lap. You look at each other and he’s giving you this soulless stare that kind of makes you regret approaching him.
“What.” He mumbles and avoids your gaze. “I’m busy.” You roll your eyes because you notice that he isn’t even doing anything on his laptop. His wallpaper, which is a photo of you both and your friend’s at his 21st birthday party, is being shown. Has he been staring at it the whole time? Waiting for you to come and talk to him?
“I, um… Sorry Tae. For judging you about the filters and stuff earlier. Please don’t beat yourself up over that, sweetheart.” You’re now cupping his cheeks and lightly running both your thumbs on his cheekbones. He doesn’t give you a reply, his eyes staring at his hands that are placed on top of his laptop.
“…How will you make it up to me?” He finally answers you, placing his laptop on the other side of the couch. He looks up to you but a frown is still on his face. “You made my mood down for the whole day, babe. How could you tell me that. You’re mean.” He mumbles sadly and leans back on the couch.
You let out a laugh and sit on his lap, your arms going around his neck. “I’m really sorry. I really didn’t think it would make you feel like this. It was my mistake. But hey, I’ll teach you how to take pictures with the right filters. You can count on me.” You wink. Taeyong rolls his eyes and places his hands on your sides. “Actually, you don’t even need to use a filter, you pretty boy.” You explain, grinning.
“…Can we take pictures now, then?” He asks, ready to bring out his phone from his pocket.
“Hm, later. After this.” Before Taeyong could talk again, you move closer to him and bring your lips to his, giving him a long and sweet kiss. You feel Taeyong squishing your sides and you squirm, making him chuckle.
Shortly after, you lean back and smile at him. “Forgiven?”
“Yeah, yeah. Forgiven. Can you teach me now?” Even if Lee Taeyong was upset over this little thing, he couldn’t really hold a grudge against you. He was always a softie for you. He would gladly learn from you (and be better at it so that he could tease you after).
“Give me your phone, then. Your girlfriend will show you how to take the best selfies ever.” Winking at the boy who was showing you an amused look, you move to his side. You hold his phone close to your faces, ready to take several photos of you together.
Taeyong eventually mastered the use of filters and his selfie skills. Now, he was teasing you. It was also your turn to give him frowns and a silent treatment the whole day. Oh, how the tables have turned.
And if anyone will ask me why I fell for him and I say because he is handsome then we will know that I’m joking. He is so fucking ugly. Like really. You haven’t seen him, but trust me. You wouldn’t fall for him. Like never. Not in this life. What is wrong with me?

Genre: Slight fluff towards the ending , mostly angst
A/N: there are tons of Johnny scenarios out there already but we can never get enough of him so ;)
The rain drops hit against the windows as the wind whistled , making a soft and gentle rhythm . It slowly got heavier as you felt the rain droplets flying into your house , causing the floor tiles to get wet in just a few seconds . The lights in the house was flickering and your bed was a mess .
But you couldn’t care less to close the windows , tidy up your room and fix everything . How could you fix everything else when you yourself was a mess ?
Your hair was tied into a messy bun and you wore just an oversized sweater with a pair of shorts . Your red eyes and dark circles could be visibly seen . As though you hadn’t eaten for days , your lips were pale and dry .
He hasn’t visited you since last week after that incident , and you felt like you were going to die .
Grabbing yet another box of tissues , your eyes schemed through the comments on the article .
!! SHOCKING !! NCT’s Johnny has a girlfriend ? And they have have been dating for 2 years . Unbelievable !
“ Ew omg she’s so ugly , is Johnny oppa blind or something .. I really hope they break up soon .”
“ She’s probably only dating him for his popularity and talents , i bet she doesnt love him truly LOL. ”
“ I guess i should be happy Johnny has a girlfriend but … i was expecting someone prettier and better ? But oh well .. we can’t do anything , it is oppa’s choice . ”
Your relationship with Johnny had been publicised to the media last week after both of you were caught on a date at a deserted cafe you thought no fans would be at , but who knew one was there at that day and she just had to blow everything up .
You clenched your chest as you felt that overwhelming emotion take over your body again . Before you knew it , you were breaking down and blaming yourself for even thinking of getting together with an idol in the first place , and also promising him that you wouldn’t get affected when in fact , you would and you were . What’s more ,he was a well known celebrity and idol while you were just a typical citizen and student , who are you to deserve someone so great and talented like him ?
You shut the top of your laptop as you dragged yourself to bed . Covering your face with your pillow , you poured your eyes out once again. You didn’t want to think anymore , you were tired and you didn’t want to think of what may happen next , also , to imagine yourself having to break up with Johnny , was something that seemed impossible for you to do .
“ Y/N … ” you flinched when you heard that soothing and familiar voice . You held your breath as you slowly lifted your pillow up . Infront of you stood Johnny . Like you , his hair was in a mess and he didn’t even bothered to shave . His eyes were swollen and sulky , making your heart ache again as it hurt to see him so upset over something , as compared to the funny and goofy Johnny you knew .
Hugging onto each other tightly , you buried your head in his chest as you remembered how warm it was whenever you did that . You missed him . And as much as you wished he would never leave , Johnny felt the same too . “ I-I thought the company wouldn’t allow you to see me ? How .. How did you manage to come all the way here ? ” you asked softly as you closed your eyes upon the soft rhythm of his heart pumping against your ears .
He sighed as he caressed your head , his hoarse and broken voice replying “ I didn’t care , the other boys helped me and i escaped . I had to see you . ” It was evident that he had also been crying for the past few days .
You nodded your head and silence overtook the room , as both of you held onto each other tightly . Although you wanted to ask him a whole lot more of questions , you didn’t as you didn’t want to ruin the moment .
“ I wouldn’t mind if i lost my job in SM , getting lots of hate from the media or fans , all for the sake of our relationship . I need b>us more than anything or anyone else, ” he said out once again , hands around your waist now .
“ No , it’s not worth it , you worked so hard for so many years with endless training , you have so many fans waiting for you and they all love you so much . I-I’m .. Babe .. Don’t do-”
He placed his lips roughly on yours to shut you up , a sign that he he was getting pissed , and also , he missed how you tasted within the past week without contacting you . You let him kiss you as you missed him so much too .
“ You don’t know how i feel Y/N . Right now , this moment , what i really want is you and you to be happy . Our relationship is more than enough and everything i could ask for . ”
