scandal (2012)

anonymous asked:

Wait he gave an excuse AGAIN for not writing songs bout freddie? What did he say?

They asked if being a father makes the songwriting process different and he said:

“Well, there are songs that draw on, you know, the pressures of being a dad and stuff like that, um, but also, I feel like I’m not at that stage of my life to…of being able to take all that in completely. You know, when you hear artists write songs and maybe something family-related or to do with their children, I feel like I need to be a more experienced writer, ‘cause you know if I’m going to write about Freddie specifically, I gotta make sure it’s the best I’ve ever written, you know.”

so for those not in the know, t-ara debuted in 2009 with 6 members (jiyeon, hyomin, qri, eunjung, boram and soyeon) and got their first win on jan 1st 2010 with “bo peep bo peep”. they continued to win with most of their comebacks until 2012 as they were extremely popular, on par with snsd and kara at the height of their career. 

their last win was on feb 24th 2012 with the song lovey dovey. after that was released, everything started going downhill. their company added an 8th member, areum, to the group (after previously adding hw*young as the 7th in 2011) and then The Bullying Scandal™ happened in mid 2012 during day by day era. they were hated so fucking much that in late 2012 (after hw*young left) when they came back with sexy love (now 7 members), companies tried to postpone their own group comebacks bc they didn’t want their artists promoting at the same time as t-ara. in 2013, areum eventually left the group and they were back to their original lineup as 6. however, the impact left from their scandal was so huge (and their company just let the scandal happen, they didn’t provide any support or offer any real clarity or statement until THIS YEAR) that korea essentially shunned them. they were sworn at, no one wanted to see them on shows, members were pulled out of dramas they were supposed to star in, the brands they were endorsing didn’t want them anymore. they were hated by Everyone. so they went off and found success in japan and (especially) china, but every time they came back to korea, they were faced with more and more hate, people telling them to stay in china, they didn’t want them in korea. 

however, this year FINALLY the scandal was cleared up, and hw*young (who everyone sided with at the time) was exposed as a liar and a fake, and basically t-ara shouldn’t have been blamed for everything bc it all turned out to be one ugly lie. but the lie Ruined their careers and the girls weren’t able to win ANY awards since february 2012. but today they FINALLY FUCKING DID. knetz shunned them for 5 fucking years over NOTHING and they finally got a win. im so angry it’s taken 5 years to get them another win and this is supposedly their last comeback and then they disband, which is such a bittersweet ending. but im so happy ppl finally woke up and got these girls what they deserve, even if boram and soyeon aren’t there to share it with them.

obviously there’s a lot more to say here about them, their history and the scandal in general, but i dont wanna make this post too long im just so fucking proud of them and im so happy korea finally woke the fuck up after 5 years. please support t-ara, even if this ends up being their last comeback, please support them all the way through this.

2005 - Hankyung was only allowed to perform on 2 music show programs.
2006 - Heechul’s accident after attending the funeral of Donghae’s father.
2007 - Car accident involving Jungsoo, Shindong, Hyukjae and Kyuhyun. Kyuhyun was in comatose for four days and needed 4-6 months to recover from it.
2009 - Hankyung filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment and officially left Super Junior.
2010 - Kangin’s car accident which led him to enter the military service.
2012 - Hyukjae’s scandal with IU.
2014 - Death of Jungsoo’s grandparents and father.
2015 - Kibum offcially left Super Junior.
2017 - Sungmin’s marriage controversy, Kangin’s drunk driving incident and now Siwon’s dog bite case.

From 13 members to 12 to 11 to 7 and now 6. Not even sure if Siwon will still continue to promote after his controversy. Whatever his desicion will be, as a true fan I will support him and the group. I’ve been a fan of this group for almost 9 years and I am sure that I will still be a fan for the years to come. No matter what they say about this group, I will continue to love them and support them. If one member decides to get married I will be happy for him instead of hating his wife. I am not after for any awards I just want them to sing on stage again and perform just like what they are doing for the past 12 years. I am so sorry for being emotional, but I just feel like Super Junior doesn’t deserve any of these. It seems like the media is really having fun of putting them down. Why can’t they just leave them alone and let them be happy?

I am wishing all the best for this group. I will never stop believing to see them perform with 13 members again, also with Henry and Zhoumi.

I love you Super Junior.
Thank you for inspiring me in so many ways.
I will always be here, cheering for you guys.

100 Quotes Writing Challenge

Since many writers enjoyed the first writing quote challenge that I made (55 Badass Quote Challenge), I figured they may like this one even more. It’s got a bunch more quotes than before – some are badass, majority of them are memorable and a few are philosophical. There’s a lot of amazing quotes in the world, but I’ve narrow it down by listing only those that came from a film or a tv show.

  1. “Forgiveness is between them and God. It’s my job to arrange the meeting.” – Creasy, Man on Fire (2004)
  2. “If you try to run, I’ve got six little friends and they can all run faster than you can.” – Seth, From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)
  3. “You step outside, you risk your life. You take a drink of water, you risk your life. And nowadays you breathe, and you risk your life. Every moment now…you don’t have a choice. The only thing you can choose is what you’re risking it for. Now, I can make these people feel better and hang on a little bit longer. I can save lives. And that’s enough reason to risk mine.” –  Hershel Greene, The Walking Dead (2010)
  4. “It is not our abilities that show what we truly are. It is our choices.” –  Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
  5. “Are you gonna bark all day, little doggy, or are you gonna bite?” – Mr. Blonde, Reservoir Dogs (1992)
  6. “Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker.” – John McClane, Die Hard (1988)
  7. “The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all.” – The Emperor of China, Mulan (1998)
  8. “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” – Ferris, Ferris Bueller’s Day Out (1986)
  9. “I don’t perform miracles or do the impossible. I make cold calculations about difficult situations, and I do not take on anything I know I won’t win. And I will win this.” – Olivia Pope, Scandal (2012)
  10. “Here’s my counter-offer to your counter-offer: Go f*ck yourself.”
    – Al Swearengen, Deadwood (2004)
  11. “Passion…it lies in all of us. Sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us, guides us…passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments; the joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d truly know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank…without passion, we’d truly be dead.” – Angelus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1998)
  12. I’ve kept you alive for two reasons. And the first reason is information. But I am gonna ask you questions. And every time you don’t give me answers, I’m gonna cut something off.

  14. “It may be an unwise man who doesn’t learn from his own mistakes, but it’s an absolute idiot that doesn’t learn from other people’s.” – Frasier Crane, Frasier (1996)
  15. “With great power comes great responsibility.” – Uncle Ben, Spider-Man (2002)
  16. “Never lie, steal, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love. If you must steal, steal away from bad company. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.” – Alex ‘Hitch’ Hitchens, Hitch (2005)
  17. “Why, you stuck up, half-witted, scruffy-looking Nerf herder.” – Princess Leia Organa, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
  18. “There are those who say fate is something beyond our command. That destiny is not our own, but I know better. Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.” – Princess Merida, Brave (2012)
  19. “If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.” – Bryan Mills, Taken (2008)
  20. [pulls out a gun] “You say you’re sorry or I'm gonna make you fuckin’ sorry!” – Louise, Thelma & Louise (1991)

You take a breath, and there we are, gulping the same air. We’re walking in your footsteps. And even a monster can possess that most dominant of human emotion…fear. We know enough to remember what we once were. We know enough to fear what we can now do. And, like a human, we obsess over love, over life, over every lost cause. We have the same weaknesses as you. But even this doesn’t make us normal. But it does make us… unforgettable.”Aiden Waite, Being Human U.S. (2011)

  24. “The man who passes the sentence should swing the sword.” – Eddard Stark, Game Of Thrones (2011)
  25. “A true outlaw finds the balance between the passion in his heart and the reason in his mind. The outcome is the balance of might and right.” – Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller, Sons of Anarchy (2008)

You have free reign with this! Use it for fanfiction – write a drabble (100-500 words), ficlet (500-1000 words) or one-shot (1000 words or more). It can be for any genre or fandom. Or it can be used for original works as well. You don’t need to follow the order this is in or use all the quotes. All that I ask, is that you at least pick five quotes (or ten, actually pick however many you want – as long as it’s an even number) from the list, and write a short scene or story using them in it. That is all.

Note: Be sure to mention in the summary or author’s note that you’re doing Ghostflowerdream’s 100 Quotes Writing Challenge.

"And yes, one of the first interviews that they aired with them, you can tell that they are waaaaay more than co-stars" "Terry were promoting scandal in 2012 before it aired" Was their first interview the tv guide one where the cast was basically introducing themselves?

I was referring to this interview. I don’t know if it was actually the very first one, but it was one of the firsts that I saw :)
