Hi! Could you please explain what dream team is? I think Leo was filming for it this year? Is it the one ravi and leo were on before? Is it apart of the Idol Star Athletics Competition or is that different? Thanks for all your work!
Dream Team is a KBS sports variety show where various guests (including idols) go on and compete in teams. Here are the episodes VIXX has been on (I think that’s all of them?):
Ep151: Ken raw cut (Water Wrestling Championship) Ep159: Leo p1 p2 p3 p4 (2nd Super Race Capture the Flag) Ep168: OT6 p1 p2 p3 p4 (Human Wagon Race) Ep173: N&Hongbin p1 p2 p3 p4 (Snow Race Championship) Ep174: Leo p1 p2 p3 p4 (Swimming Championship) Ep202: Ravi x (Super Flag Grab Race) Ep241: Leo&Ravi x (Water Park) Ep257: Leo&Ken&Hongbin x (Idol Wrestling Championship) Ep262: Leo x (Fencing) Ep264: Leo x (Volcano Mud Wrestling)
The Idol Star Athletics Competition (ISAC) is a competition (held annually I believe) where a bunch of idol groups get together and compete in a bunch of different events. (The 2013 ISAC was where Leo injured his leg during GR8U promotions.)
Rebels is quickly becoming the SW I've been hoping/waiting for w/o realizing it until now. Often times it can feel like the Force is a power up (the Sith/dark users usually treat it) and we only see it obviously working through the Force sensitives. But here we see the Lasats revering it as Ashla, talking about it like a divine being and Zeb, who until know scoffed at it, trusting Ashla to guide and protect him and those he cares about to the point he's willing to risk it all again for Ashla's-
p2: Ashla’s love/wisdom and being rewarded by redeeming himself and
finding a home for his people. I really feel a sense of connection
through the whole galaxy in this show now with the Force not caring what
name it has or whether people are even force sensitives like Jedi’s. So
long as people know it. Kanan, Ezra and Ahsoka are also showing a much
stronger relationship. Who knows. Maybe while the known part of the
galaxy forgets the Force (until TFA), the wild space won’t/never did.
Yeah, this episode struck a deeper chord.
And yeah, even though the Jedi Order revered the Force and talked (in New Canon, at least) respectfully about it, always saying “the will of the Force” or somesuch, TBH on-screen they looked just like the Sith: Using the Force as an early warning system and/or battle power-up.
The Lasats, non-Forcie beings that they are (at least, based on what we’ve seen so far in New Canon), did not have the same predisposition. They do not have as intimate relation to the Force as the Forcies, so they treated the Force reverently, and it really shows.
They did not treat Ashla as a power-up bringer. They treat Ashla as a spirit, a deity whose will shall not be denied, and they follow exactly what Ashla wanted.
And it really struck me (though not surprisingly) that Kanan was quite familiar with all of this, as he succinctly explained to Ezra. Maybe during his “lost years” between Kanan #5 and A New Dawn, he got exposed to all the GFFA’s religions. And whatever the name a culture gave to the Force, be it “Ashla” or something else, Kanan recognized the Force at work.
And he became scared and jumped ship, never wanting to be intimate with the Force again, for – in his own words – the Force is a death mark.
Not until The Rebellion Begins (novelization of Spark) finally Kanan realized, and I quote:
Though he hadn’t always been one with the Force, the Force had always been with him. He couldn’t run away from it. He couldn’t deny it any longer. He couldn’t deny himself from himself.
Kanan had become so intimate with the Force, for he came from the Force, that he might retire himself to the Wild Space (i.e., the region of the GFFA beyond the Outer Rim, as explained in that one-liner after Zeb’s bo-rifle together with Chava’s staff suddenly expanded the starmap) to escape from the gross mis-use of the Force by “the last Jedi”.
