Q: What did you do in Sopporo?
Taeyong: We saw the snow and everyone played like kids.

Mark: Ramen.
Taeyong: Shabu-shabu and sushi.
Yuta: Can I speak Japanese? It was my first time eating miso ramen in Sapporo, it really is delicious, everyone all ate like they were possessed by a hungry demon.

Q: During your concert, Taeyong performed Kotori Yoshino’s gag, who showed it to him?
Yuta: I showed it to him, and he seemed to like it a lot, so he decided to do it once.

Q: Yuta also worked hard to be the MC.
Yuta: Normally it’s hard for me to express my feelings in Korean, but I can freely do so in Japanese, so I want to talk more and interact more, ad libs just comes out.

Q: How did the other members feel after watching Yuta?
Johnny: This was my first time coming to Japan with Yuta, and because he was so used to Korea, I thought he is almost a Korean. But after seeing him in Japan I thought ‘ah, (he’s) Japanese’.
Mark: That’s right, that’s right
Taeyong: He came to Japan and did various things well. (He) organised our food menu as well.
Haechan: When we arrived in Japan and asked about things we didn’t know, Yuta hyung helped us.
Jaehyun: During the show when we were doing the ment, I also asked questions, Yuta hyung overcame it all.

Q: I am going to bring up a unique fashion topic, what kind of style of plain clothes do you like?

Haechan: I like comfortable clothes~
Taeyong: I like baggy clothes. For example, a t-shirt that I have at home for 5 years.
Mark: It differs depending on how I feel. I pick clothes according to how I feel.
Johnny: I also wear clothes depending on how I feel that day, I pick clothes that can express my feelings.

Q: Which member cares about their fashion the most?
Mark: I think it’s Winwin hyung.
Yuta: Isn’t it fashion terrorist Winwin?
Doyoung: It’s high fashion (as in high fashion sense).

Some of the Q & A with Mads at Saudi Comic Con

Q1: you have said many times you try to leave your characters as fast as you can and not to carry it with you, but is there any of your characters you felt related to it somehow?

Mads: the character has to be left when you go home, if not it will be a little bit crazy that your family has to call you different name every week, so I try to do that, but I always try to find something in myself that I put in the character and what is part of me and Hannibal I won’t tell you *laughing*, but I always try to identify with it somehow even if it means that I have to flip my own world upside down

Q2: in the last scene of the 3rd season of Hannibal, we see bedelia’s leg is cut and if we assumed if both of Hannibal and Will survived, who do you think who cut the leg, Hannibal, Will or both of them?

Mads: I want both of them, I don’t think we should live without any of those two characters. If Hannibal survived then Will has to as well

the answer was different from the question and I blame my shaky low voice, he didn’t hear me, but hannigram right

LGBT+ Questions

Just some fun questions, to share anecdotes and such from your experiences. Reblog, add your answer and we’ll reblog it OR answer in the replies if you don’t want us to reblog it. We wanna hear from you :) 

Q1: Who did you come out to first (friends, family, therapist, etc)?

- Car color palette swaps

- Functional track select

- Full mouse support for menus

- Controller to keyboard hot swapping

- Depth of field video option.

- New free demo - Same amount of content as original demo, locked into eventide ghost battle with 2 cars (one unlocked after beating expert). Twitter support.

See you at the finish line.

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: Why do we never speak about the fact that we don't know what happened to Benvolio after Act III. His last fucking line is "This is the truth, or let Benvolio die." and fucking Shakespeare decided that it would be a great idea to let him out of the play and never speak of him again. He DIED in the Q1 and we never are told how, Lord Montague simply says "and young Benvolio is deceased too." Even though in Q2 at the final scene it says "Enter Lord Montague and others" it is never openly said if he entered along with his uncle or not. His two best friends died, one in his arms and the other was his cousin; he was left alone and Shakespeare didn't even bother tell us his fate. Why couldn't he give him the happy ending he deserved? Why didn't anyone listen to him? Why? There would have been way less death that way.
