I finally made references for Rapunzel AU like half a year after I posted the first art for it, yay? The reason Sora’s so motivated to get Riku out Darkness Tower Hell despite being a busy noble with Things to Do is because Riku looks suspiciously like a childhood friend he used to have before said friend moved one day without a word, so he’s immediately like LMAO MALEFICENT YOU’RE HIS MOM??? then the search begins and so on so forth they smooch, Riku get’s a haircut.

Oh look, more Eddsworld trash :’V I’m obsessed I’m soRRY-

It’s TomTord, of course, cos I’m one of THOSE people. I mean, I ship whatever seems interesting tbh (like TomEdd, TomMatt, TordEdd, TordMatt, Paultryk, Edd/Eduardo, Eduardo/Jon, Jon/Mark, etc). But TomTord is just one of those ships that kinda stuck out to me. I know irl it would be probably toxic and kinda abusive, but that’s why I only ship the IDEA of it. I love the thought of them fighting a lot is just sexual tension and stuff. Like they actually would get along great if they would just kiss already lmaO,,,

Anyways, here ya go. I heavily referenced a couples reference I found on Google, I can provide the photo if need be. If the original reference artist wants me to take this down, I will!

Please do NOT repost without proper credit! Link back to my account and/or this post if you do.

Tom and Tord belong to Eddsworld, which belongs to Edd Gould’s family!

Ps. the song I used in here is called Like Me Better by Lauv. Bless you @smollerei for introducing me to this song and to Eddsworld aaaa

Some Reasons why I love Peniel’s VLOGS:


Let’s start from the very basic: 


1, The editing is dope!  

 And by that, I mean really, really good. Most of his shots and the quality of contents are above average!  I usually feel bored easily when watching vlog, but Peniel’s camera point of view is so beautiful as he showed the view in between places, from train, car, (also time lapse and stuffs) and.. yeah it also makes me even more excited to visit Japan again, someday. (hiks). And, remembering his profession as an active singer slash celebrity with packed schedule. I really admire Peniel’s commitment in shooting, editing and everything. 

2. The very simple titles given:

Well done! 1st! My worst enemy! or.. Tokyo! Udon! New Camera!

I love the very simple title, some are only consisted of one or two words. And the title given even makes me feel more curious to see the content compare to other Vlogs with such long title like here, here, and here.
I guess he is the kind of like really easy going man so he just name the video what ever is on his head at that time, and (again) it’s kinda cute for me, lol

3. No cliche opening, ending, like, subscribe or anything.

Everytime I watch a youtubers or vlogs, I will always skip the last few second since it will be the same all over again. Please like, subscribe, blah blah blah, which is very cliche and… boring. And Peniel doesn’t do that! (teehee)

4. He speaks in English (almost all the time)! so I can do something else while watching his video.
Like revising. Tried this before and it’s kinda work for me. Fun!

5. The content shows fans his daily activities and what are behind the scene of his profession. Like MV making, how long he’s waiting. Dry rehearsal, camera rehearsal, make up, change clothes, so on and so forth. Like it is kinda interesting to know about this stuffs directly from an idol perspective! (especially for international fans)

6. The background songs! it is usually one song per video which is good because it’s simple. But,,, what I like even more is, the songs are so good as well! Peniel rarely ever pick other artist’s song, so either it was BTOB’s songs, or his mixtape songs, which are very original! Represents his mood, preference, and profession, and make the audience feel even closer to his vlogs.

7. You can see BTOB members appeared randomly here and there in some of the videos. Either only their voice, in the background, or they’re singing, sleeping, sometimes giving random jokes; which is… super fun! Mostly those members will pop out speaking in little random english as well, bcs Peniel is speaking in fluent english, so again, yea that’s cute to see!

8. His english is pretty cute!

Like in my opinion (from what I heard), Peniel has a lisp right? and his english is nearly perfect as well (no grammar mistake whatsoever) which makes it become very pleasant to hear.

9. Bringing camera to every where. Rather than snapchat-ting or Insta Story-ing, why not youtubeing?

Yea at the first few videos my reaction was like… oh well why does he have to carry a camera or go pro to almost everywhere? Like it’s not really the culture for Korean or Japanese people bringing Gopro with the stabiliser at public space. But.. when I think about it again, Well other artists like Jessi and Tiffany (only two that I know) very often be seen  holding their phones for snapchatting as well during events.
So, rather than filming for something that will only last for 24 hours, why not making it available for days, months, or even years? Yea Peniel’s idea is at a different level obviously saying.

10. He has manner, guys

Peniel doesn’t just record everywhere anytime out of nowhere. He often whispered, or typed, in order just not to bother other passengers or people around him. I think if he really wants to, he can just ignore those kind of situations, shoot in more places to create more fun contents. But, he will not shoot where he is not supposed to, to show respect towards other’s people privacy, then just say sorry to the audience (even when he doesn’t have to) and told us afterwards what was happening instead.

11. Last but not least, his effort in providing Korean subtitles!

I thought Peniel just has to edit videos and upload it directly so I didn’t get it at first when he mentioned about “I gotta do subtitle and stuff..”. And then… because he mention it very often (or I’ve just watched too many of his videos), just reckon that he has to translate ALL what he said (in English) into Korean to treat Korean fans/watchers.Well, job of editing and everything isn’t little already. And I can imagine, translating isn’t an easy (or fun) deal too.

But then, that’s probably why fans love his videos with all of the efforts given SO MUCH, and I hope he knows how so many people enjoy his videos and vlogging activities. And of course, including for me, I enjoy it very very much. Thank you Peniel! haaha..


Some of my recommendations (few of my most favourites) are..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXNf1qJDIoQ

-> the best part in this video is obviously… Changsub with his “OH MY CAP, OH MY CAP, OOHHHH IM SORRY” LOLL. Seriously you guys should watch it. It’s just sooo funny! haha.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKCDXZvJrfs&t=1s

-> I like the background song of this video very much, which makes me discover BTOB’s awesome Japanese songs as well. The content are awesome in this video too, lots of stuffs that makes me want to visit Japan. Anddd lastly, you can see  BTOB’s member’s randomness (with their english) popping out here and there too, lol.

On Translations

I’ve seen a post floating around on the difference between the MangaStream and YonkouProd translations of Chapter 521. Figured I’d shine a bit of light on the websites themselves and on… some bigger issues in this fandom. Those issues are important, so this post isn’t going under a cut. Sorry. You need to read this if you weren’t aware of these issues already. 

YonkouProd: A newer website as far as translations go. I haven’t been reading them for a long time, so I don’t trust them as well. 

MangaStream: A more experienced manga website. They’ve been around for years, and while they’re known for fluffing up the translations with flowery prose, they’re generally pretty reliable. They have a large team of hardworking translators. This most recent chapter, for example, had a team of 7 people involved working on stuff from framing to translations to scans. 

MangaPanda is pretty much obsolete at this point, so those are the two main competitors. I’d take both translating teams with a grain of salt, however, and there are some very good reasons for that.  

MangaStream and YonkouProductions are the manga industry’s equivalent of the art thieves and reposters that people complain about here on Tumblr. 

You may remember the days when Fairy Tail chapters came out on Fridays, way back to the GMG arc. For a good amount of time, they switched to Mondays, and now that YonkouProd has found a way to get earlier scans, they’ve inched back to Saturdays. People bitched and moaned when Fairy Tail’s release schedule scooted back three days, but there was a reason for that. 

In Japan, Fairy Tail chapters come out on Wednesdays (Tuesday night for us). People in this fandom seem to understand this, as the general consensus is that it’s impolite to Tweet Mashima before the chapter comes out in Japan. For some reason, however, people cannot seem to understand that America and other English-speaking countries do not get the scans early because they are special. 

The scans only come out early online because people take them illegally and repost them without giving Mashima proper credit

As I’ve said time and time again, Mashima does not write Fairy Tail out of the goodness of his heart. Fairy Tail is his job. It is his source of income. I know there are authors and artists out there that realize how it feels to see your art reposted and given no credit on other sites! I’m not going to minimize that, but please realize that for Mashima, it’s not just people stealing his work. It’s people stealing the work and him losing money for it

I’m sure you understand why this is an issue. So… what can you do? I’m sure you still want to read Fairy Tail, but where can you go to get it legally? 

Circling back to your initial complaints… there’s a website where you can read it legally and get higher-quality, more accurate scans! It’s called Crunchyroll. I’ve given you the link. Yeah, there’s a fee of $6.95 a month, but you don’t just get Fairy Tail. They have a variety of manga and anime and pay every single creator for their work to the best of my knowledge. I believe you can read the most recent chapters of Fairy Tail for free. Don’t quote me there. 

If you can’t afford to pay that, I can’t stop you from reading Fairy Tail. I just can’t. I can hope that you buy the official merchandise or the volumes from stores or something, but I can’t force you to do that, either. 

I can ask you to stop bitching about the illegal scans that you get for free, though. Knock that shit off. Have some respect. 

Give Mashima the credit for his manga that you would want for your fanart, and for the love of all things holy, stop expecting the word of God to come down from illegal manga sites. They’re going to be inaccurate and lower-quality, and as long as you continue to read them for free without giving Mashima his dues, they’re going to stay that way. 

Tenasia Interview- Kenta Takada

Translations may not be 100% accurate please understand and I also just chose interesting parts (most of it lol)
Do not take out without proper credit!!!

10: Today is your first interview, how do you feel about it?
Kenta:
I am so nervous. I did some interviews also in Japan but this is my first Korean interview. I saw my friends (other trainees) interview with Tenasia also that’s why I wanted to do it also. (laughs)

10: It’s our honor. (laugh) So let’s start the interview? You participated in the finale concert (produce 101 season 2) last week.
Kenta:
Yes, The concert features until the 35th trainees and since I ranked 24th I was able to participate. I enjoyed it better than I expected. Also, I was thankful to the nation’s producer for making it possible for me to perform at such a large stage. The concert was really fun. I was also able to perform songs that I was able to perform. We performed ‘Be Mine’, 'Spring Day’ and that performance that I really wanted to do, 'Shape of you’.

10: You weren’t an original member for the 'Shape of you’ team it must’ve been hard to master the choreo.
Kenta:
We were short of time so I was very worried, luckily, donghan and taehyun hyung helped me a lot so it was fun and there was no problems.

10: Because of your OST 'Wanna be with you’ your name was added on the artist list of music sites and it was number 1 on Melon for some time, are you aware of it?
Kenta:
Yes I was aware of it (laughs). Since being a singer is my goal I was so happy when I saw my name on the artist page. I thought if I can really be included and because I am a foreigner it is hard to get to number 1. I am really thankful for my fans for doing this for me.

10: We are curious who inspired you to be a singer. Who inspired Kenta, a japanese, to be a kpop singer?
Kenta
: I liked music since I was young and I thought of being a singer in Japan but when I was in 2nd year highschol I started watching and listening to Kpop. I did a cover of Teen top sunbaenim and I thought that they were the same age as me (1995 liner, Teentop’s maknae Ricky is also 1995 liner). I was famous as the Japanese Ricky and known as Rickymu. Because they are the same age as me and they are shining at the stage, that’s when I started dreaming to be a singer too.

10:You were a part of a dance team in Japan named 'Garagarahebi" and your pretty famous then.
Kenta:
That’s right, to be honest we even had a CD. Not the one that they sell in record shops but we released it live. Since then I kept on having thoughts that “I really want to do this in Korea”. With that in mind I needed to challenge my self.

10: What is the difference between J-pop Idols and K-pop Idols? Why do you think is the charms of K-pop as a foreigner?
Kenta:
To be honest J-pop idols are more like, instead of having a perfect performance since the start, they slowly grow and that’s how they receive fans love. While in Kpop, there are a lot of teams (groups) that perform perfectly. Seeing that, I thought of “ahh this is how I want to be.”

10: That’s how you became a Teen Top fan. Why do you think that you were a famous fan back then?
Kenta
: 6 years ago there weren’t a lot of male Kpop fans. Since the other fans were also curious “who was that?” they also took lots of pictures of me.

10: Now you are teen top’s 'Successful fan’ and before the show started during teen top’s comeback showcase Ricky said that he knows you.
Kenta:
I am very thankful when fans call me as a succesful fan. I am also thankful when Ricky sunbaenim said that he remembers me and I was so happy when he mentioned me. I wanted to work hard more.

10: How did you study Korean?
Kenta:
The first thing I did when I went to Korea is to attend an academy for 2 months. After that I started learning from the company staff and my friends. (tn: lol tbh same. study basics and just practice)

10: When you came to korea you worked part time at a cafe.
Kenta:
Ah~~ yes. Since I talked with the people who come at the cafe I improved a lot. And since I liked cafes I also part timed at cafes when I was in Japan.

10: Didn’t your parents stop you from going to korea?
Kenta:
To be honest they are against it at first. Since there is no clear future because I was a foreigner. My mom was so against it that I have to talk to her and make her understand a lot. My mom was like that and so as my dad and my elder sister. Even if they were against it I kept on explaining, “it isn’t dangerous” I kept on telling them. I explained to them a lot that I really wanted to be a singer in Korea and now the cheer on me.

10: What did your parents say when they knew that you were participating in produce 101?
Kenta
: My parents doesn’t really know the show so I needed to explain to them at first. That there is a voting system, you are going to do it like this and like this and like this. They asked me “will it be okay?” at first and they were worried but as the program progress and because I get a lot of love from other people my mom was very happy.

Thoughts on season 1 and how did he participate in season 2.
Kenta:
I watched season 1 a lot and when I heard that they are doing season 2 I told the company that I really wanted to participate and that’s how I participated. My season 1 pick is ofcourse Kim Sejong Sunbaenim and Kim Sohye Sunbaenim, I really liked them a lot.

[CONCLUSIONS] Min Yoongi and Jeon Jeongguk’s Relationship in HYYH Series (Part I).

After watching and speculating the music videos, many ARMY have noticed the unusual scenes between Yoongi and Jungkook. So, I (OP) did my work by watching repeatedly all the videos from I Need U MV, I Need U (Original), Prologue, RUN teaser, then RUN and successfully found many details. This post is the combination of my personal understandings, astrology, conclusions and some stuff that also came from ARMY.

[160409] NCT_U - THE 7TH SENSE - FULL LYRICS

Close your eyes to the cold world
Lie on your bed
Block both your ears
Yesterday is today, and today is yesterday
You’re just full of overdue blame
WE WILL TAKE IT SLOW (BABY BABY)
WE’LL TAKE IT SLOW
As if we’re in the same dream
A familiar song calls out to me
I’m finally connected
You should accept me
HATE is on me
Even if every day is a repeat of itself I’m okay
I walk above a depth of darkness
And look at the real truth that’s hidden here
OPEN YOUR EYES
Quietly open your eyes (echoed)
OPEN YOUR EYES
Now, OPEN YOUR EYES (echoed)
OPEN YOUR EYES
Quietly open your eyes
Quietly open your eyes (echoed
OPEN YOUR EYES
Now open your eyes
Hatred that I haven’t thrown away
And dreams that torment me (this dream)
The clock goes on without an error as if to mock me (oh yeah)
I’m a wreck, even I don’t know myself
The future has been painted dark
I struggle
It (the future) paints this night more pitch black (woo yeah)
Close your eyes to the cold world
Lie on your bed
Block both your ears
Yesterday is today, and today is yesterday
You’re just full of overdue blame
WE WILL TAKE IT SLOW (BABY BABY)
WE’LL TAKE IT SLOW
As if we’re in the same dream
A familiar song calls out to me (you do)
I’m finally connected (you want)
As usual I’m headed somewhere
In districts I don’t know the name of
To a hall without a name
Even if I sleep for some (consecutive) nights
I get no comfort
No matter where I go
(at that place) I’m mostly an Explorer passing my time
Uh and that’s a long ass ride
I go wandering in a trance and eventually I close my eyes
The spaces between now and my dreams
I am suspicious of them again
I still have something I need to confirm
Right now, with you (uh)
OPEN YOUR EYES
Quietly open your eyes (echoed)
OPEN YOUR EYES
Now open your eyes (echoed)
OPEN YOUR EYES
Quietly open your eyes (echoed)
OPEN YOUR EYES
Now open your eyes
Inside harmed irregularity (inside)
The story I’ve hidden really deep
Opens Its eyes
Through this song
Your dreams can be read (dream)
My seventh sense
Is awoken from a deep sleep
(Oh) Come here by my side as the night unfolds
Now another dream approaches, little by little
I understand [your dreams] as if they are my own
OPEN YOUR EYES
See the truth open your eyes
OPEN YOUR EYES (echoed)
I’m not alone

Sehun’s Letter to EXO members and EXO-Ls

I prepared a letter. Hello members, this is maknae Sehun. Were you surprised? I always tell you all how I feel but there are some quite embarrassing things that I couldn’t say. It has been three years together with the fans, and so I prepared what I want to say to all of you. Being infront of you right now, I’m so nervous and I feel like I’m gonna go crazy. These all came from the heart so please listen well. I will start by age. 

First! To Minseok-hyung who looks young. Thank you for accepting my, not sometimes but often, playfulness and whines to you. In the future I will just whine once a day. (I really do this a lot.)

To my loving Suho-hyung. I don’t always say when I’m having a hard time but you always seem to know when I do with your comforting pats. If hyung is having a hard time, I’m here so please don’t worry. Just call me, except when I’m sleeping. Please believe in the maknae, hyung. 

To Lay-hyung who wasn’t able to attend this but would be nice if he was here. You’re watching, right? I will check if you watch this or not. What did Sehun say at 45:02? I’ll ask you like this. Do well in your movie filming, don’t get hurt and always be healthy. Wo ai ni. 

To Chennie chennie chen Jongdae-hyung that I am anticipating in this broadcast. You know that I love you, right? I know that you always take care of us, but I wasn’t able to tell you that I know. I’m very thankful and I love you. 

And Chanyeol-hyung, please stop joking around so much. We’re all adults now, it’s getting irritating. I’m joking. We’ve been so tired lately but because of you, we always get to laugh and you make the tension disappear and the atmosphere better. I love you.

And to Baekhyun-hyung. You always practice your singing even late at night, please do it just once in a while. It’s really irritating. I’m genuinely curious why you do it late night and not earlier. We always get to talk a lot when we’re together, hopefully we can also talk about serious stuff next time. 

And to Dyo, Kyungsoo-hyung. Truthfully, I’m very frustrating, aren’t I? It’s because I love everything about hyung that I reject that you reject my love. I’m thankful that even if you reject and say you don’t want to, you hate to or you won’t do it, you still do (for me). I love you. It’s spring now, so when you go riding your bike at Han river, please give me a ride too. 

And to Tao, who I’m thankful for that I treat like a friend. I regularly talk to you a lot and so I end up spending a lot of time with you, and now that you’re not here it feels empty. Don’t get hurt. Wo ai ni, Tao. 

Lastly, to Kim Kai who’s becoming more handsome. We always talk a lot, and you make me want to work even harder because you’re so passionate. You’re the member who makes me want to strive harder, my driving force, and also gives me strength. And so, I really like that. I love you. 


If we get strength from one another, we will be able to show the best stage. It’s already our 3rd year. Time really flew by so fast. We had a lot of memories, even this moment where I’m reading this letter will become a memory as well that hopefully we will talk about next time as well. Always be healthy and don’t get hurt. We are one. 

And lastly, to our beloved EXO-Ls. I want to express our love to you. For always believing in us, for loving us, for supporting us, and for always believing in us and our members.. The love that you have given us, we will do our best to give back more. Please watch us, thank you, I love you.

I have seen my work STOLEN, EDITED, and someone by the name of Frozen2Sceneson Instagramhas went out of the way to remove my signature at the bottom of my Titanic AU Jelsa Poster (shown above) and put his/her OWN signature, claiming it was his/her own. 

     I am ANGERED and DISGUSTED by this. It takes me 2-5 hours to make these manips. This one shown above, took me 4 hours to make. I enjoy doing them, but if it comes to this I will STOP posting them.

     I love it when you guys like and reblog my work, it let’s me know that you love it. But if you wish to post it somewhere else outside of Tumblr, PLEASE JUST ASK!!!

BOBBY'S INTERVIEW FOR NYLON KOREA (November 2014

Translated by Sally @ K1MJIWON

Interviewer: After winning SMTM3, did people’s reaction change?


BOBBY: Oh! No! The reason why I don’t have many chances to feel the popularity is because I’m usually only at the practice room and the studio. There are some people who notice me when I sometimes go to the airport or when filming. The existence of the people who like me itself is surprising and I’m grateful.


Interviewer: You have so much more popularity than you think.


BOBBY: Oh! No! Thank you so much!


Interviewer: Are you doing this because you’re embarrassed?


BOBBY: It’s just because I’ve heard this for the first time, haha.


Interviewer: You like Hot dog and pizza? (It was actually the dinner menu that day)


BOBBY: It suites my taste more than Korean food. I have a taste like a baby who likes sausage and cheese.


Interviewer: Even if you eat a lot, you’re not the type to get fat, right?

BOBBY: As I do dance practice every day, I lose weight naturally.


Interviewer: Do you like exercising?


BOBBY: Looking at it, doing it I like both. I want to try ice hockey.


Interviewer: Ice Hockey, somehow it matches with you. I watched all of SMTM. You were really good at rapping as if there was more to it?


BOBBY: Although I feel good that I won SMTM, I felt that I was lacking a lot. I think I can do better than this but it’s hard.


Interviewer: I liked your self-written rap lyrics. I had a feeling that you were exactly telling a story about what you’ve been through and what you thought.


BOBBY: Personally when writing lyrics, I like to move things as I think of it. The programme concept of saying everything what you want and the writing style of my lyrics matched well. I thought ‘This is the time!’ and I wrote lyrics while enjoying.


Interviewer: I think this programmme changed the perception of ‘idol rapper’.


BOBBY: It was also my goal. If you say idol rapper, they get easily looked on. They consider that they’re rapping to the lyrics that someone else wrote. I thought I’d be upset if those titles comes up to me. So that’s why I wanted to destroy the prejudice. I wanted to show that some idol rappers know how to be embarrassed at their own skills and they try hard to do well.


Interviewer: You did this in the programme as well but you like to use the word ‘destroy’ a lot.


BOBBY: It suites well with the context and somehow it looks cool.


Interviewer: Haha, that’s right. What is the rap style that you pursue?


BOBBY: That it has to be cool from the start of the song to the end. It has to be cool unconditionally.


Interviewer: What is that ‘coolness’?


BOBBY: Mhm…being manly. Overflowing with masculine, tough and saying what they want to say…I think that’s the real coolness. I’ll keep it as no need to cover and bringing it raw as it is. I will be using a lot of stories about strong things and raw things in my rap in the future as well.


Interviewer: The word right now, isn’t that over pronouncing the rhyme?


BOBBY: It came out naturally, haha.


Interviewer: You study the ways that make you look charming?


BOBBY: If you say entertainment agency is school then I’m in the graduating class. For the last 4 years, I never missed a time and took videos every week and did monthly evaluation. Although it was hard thanks to that, I found out myself what expressions can be a weapon. It’s not just simply showing singing and dance on stage, I learnt it with my body that you need to add motion and gesture to make up the mood.


Interviewer: About how much do you think your talents are?


BOBBY: I think talents change in proportion with the amount and time you try. If you stop trying, the talent will remain there. If you try hard constantly, your talent will also develop.


Interviewer: I thought that talents were born/gifted with. That’s new to hear. It’s your 3rd time on only survival programmes from <WIN><SMTM> to <MIX&MATCH>. Have you ever thought that it was cruel?


BOBBY: I did at first but as I experience it often, as a musician, I felt that there’s no other format better than survival programme to develop. Although it’s hard, you eventually get to develop. So now I feel thankful to our CEO.


Interviewer: When seeing the other members, sometimes there are images of their mental collapsing but it seems like the survival programme format suites Bobby well.


BOBBY: I think it’s because I have a stronger mind of ‘this too shall pass’ than the other members. If there’s a mission given, I believe that I can do it anyway and I’m still young. There’ll be more opportunities in the future.


Interviewer: As you participate in a survival programme, have you thought of ‘I can never pass over this person’ by any chance?


BOBBY: I’ve rather thought the opposite. If I try hard like now, no one will be able to pass over me.


Interviewer: If you had the ability to steal someone else’s talent, whose would you steal and what talent?
BOBBY: Mhm, it’s not one or two people. I want to steal 0.1% each from all the rappers that I like.


Interviewer: You have a lot of greed?


BOBBY: Yes. I really think a lot of ‘How good would it be if I could steal a little bit of all the rappers skills’.


Interviewer: That’s a mature answer as a 20 year old. Since when were you a positive mind?


BOBBY: I think I inherited (that) from my parents. My parents were my scariest teacher as well as the funniest comedian to me. Since childhood, I received my parents’ positive energy so I think I got used to it in my body.


Interviewer: What do you need the most to yourself right now?


BOBBY: Mhm, love. The weather has become colder and there’s nothing better than lyrics about love. Reflecting on my experience, I wrote the lyrics well when I was in love. I moved the words that was from my heart not my head to lyrics. I can’t write it without experience and there’s sincerity that can only be done at that time.


Interviewer: Whatever emotion it is, it maximizes when dating. Then you know about it.


BOBBY: That’s exactly right. You’re writing the stories in your heart into lyrics so when dating, a better expression comes out more than usual.


Interviewer: What’s your recent source of trouble?


BOBBY: Mhm, Christmas. I’m worried because I don’t have a girlfriend to do an event to.


Interviewer: There’s still a while left, have you already planned for Christmas?


BOBBY: I want to spend this year’s Christmas fun. Last Christmas was quite boring.


Interviewer: I hope you spend a fun Christmas as planned. What modifier do you want to be called as in the future?


BOBBY: Just rapper Bobby. I want be recognized as a rapper. That word in front of my name is good enough.


Interviewer: What do you think you did well this year?


BOBBY: Appearing on SMTM.


Interviewer: Not winning?


BOBBY: Appearing on it itself means a lot to me. If I didn’t do well here, I thought it was a losing game. There were rappers who did absurdly well. Because of the tension, I went back to my first intention and constantly practiced. Thanks to that, I was able to win.


Interviewer: You said this is your first interview ever. How would you remember today in the future?


BOBBY: I will remember it as a time to trace back on myself. I never talked deep about myself. It was new because it was my first time.


Interviewer: I have something that I really wanted to ask. When are you going to debut?


BOBBY: Mhm, I’m not sure. Because one reap as one has sown. The thing that I can do before that is sowing seeds. Then, some day it will be fruitful as much as expected.
