Two years.

Two long years since the day your life drastically changed. You still thought about him, about that night constantly. It played on a loop in your mind, serving as an everlasting reminder of everything that was missing from your life.

You loved your new job and New York. It was nice to be back in your home country, to see family and old friends. But no matter how glamorous your life had become, it was empty.

You had tried seeing other people. Friends even tried setting you up, but no matter how handsome or charming all your suitors seemed to be, they weren’t Jaebum. No one ever interested you enough to move past a first date.

BTS @ The BBMAs: Dear ARMYs

I just want to express how proud I am of each and every member. Reflecting back on their debut, I can’t believe how BTS started off so small only to become huge, global superstars. While watching them perform “No More Dream” for the first time, I never would’ve imagined all of this success. They are Korean artists at an American music award ceremony. I can’t even begin to imagine how much they all went through to make it this far.

However, a special thank you must be said to ARMYs all over the world. It doesn’t matter when you started listening to them. What matters is how supportive everyone has been throughout the years, especially when the support is shown in a well-mannered, mature way. Of course the members’ talents brought them to this stage. At the same time, luck is an enormous part of an artist’s success, and BTS has been extremely lucky to have fans that will love and stand behind them no matter what. So thank you, and good luck to the boys tonight!

An oldie - but not one I have seen before.  James Spader on the set of the Blacklist January 29, 2014

Edited to add this commentary from the actor in the pic with him:

1/30/14
So as promised, here are insider details of my time on set acting with #JamesSpader for #Blacklist Episode 113 as a co-star

James is an amazing actor! It is the first time that I have seen an American set and crew cheer after the shot is done. I’ve only seen that happen on Bollywood sets when superstars like Amitabh Bachchan perform a difficult scene.
It was thrilling to work with him. Of course, I had to put the “thrill” aside quickly, as I had a job to do as well :)

For everyone who told me to tell James that they are his fans and to tell him why they are his fans, I did! I told him about Jeanne Reed of WorkingActorStudio.com and how she loves the intelligence in his eyes whiles acting I told him about Kavitha Mathew and how she she thinks he’s superhot and handsome, and I told him about how much my sister, Qurrat Ann Kadwani, loved him in Race on Broadway and I told him about everyone else who was excited that I was doing the show because they love him and his work.

soulmates! tenny pt.2
  •  kay so over in Thailand ten’s parents just had a lil freak out session bc they woke up to ten and his sheets covered in red paint and they thought he was dying
  •  he wakes up to screaming
  • so he automatically screams
  • “WHY ARE WE SCREAMING”
  •  “WHY ARE YOU BLEEDING”
  •  looks down at arm “oh lmao I found a can of paint and I dipped my arm in”
  •  “chittaphon wtf”
  •  ten had been a meme since he was a smol okay have you not seen his pre-debut stuff it’s legendary
  •  (I’m getting off topic whoops)
  •  so they wash off his arm but like
  •  johnny’s message is obvs still there
  •  and he’s like
  •  “mommy there’s still something there”
  •  so his parents see and they’re like
  •  o shit waddup
  •  and theyre so excited
  •  and chittaphon is there like yo why are my parents smiling like maniacs
  •  they keep him home from school to educate him on soulmates and tell them their story and chittaphon is just in awe
  • again he obvs knew about soulmate but it just wasn’t relevant at the time
  • and this time around, ten actually speaks English so there’s no language barrier
  • so he sends Johnny an message and he’s super excited but he doesn’t get a response until like eight at night bc time difference
  • but yeah they start talking and johnny is so hyped
  • he’s like
  • “hi cHITTAPHON NICE TO MEET YOU HOW ARE YOU HOW OLD ARE YOU”
  •  ten just sees a bunch of words just appear on his arm and he’s like holy shit my soulmate exists
  • anyways from there they hit it off and it’s the cutest thing ever
  •  ten is literally amazed by everything Johhny is and does
  • “yOURE SIX THATS SO COOL”
  •  “wOW YOU WANNA BE A PERFORMER THATS SO COOL”
  •  “yOU LIVE IN AMERICA WOWOWOOWOWOWOWOWO”
  • but like johnnys same so
  • from day one the absolutely adore each other
  • it only grows from there too
  • always writing to each other
  • they both get in trouble a lot for writing to each other during class as kids
  • and texting each other as teens
  • the first time they video called each other was amazing OML
  • they both stared at the screen for like five minutes just staring at the other person bc damn they’re hot
  • but yeah after that video calls just become a normal thing for tenny
  • ten was literally the first person to know Johnny got accepted into SM
  •  this was so cute okay he called chittaphon when it was like 6am in thailand
  • “jOHNNY WHAT I WAS SLEEPING”
  • “I GOT ACCEPTED INTO SM”
  •  “ WAIT ACTUALLY”
  • chittaphon was literally screaming at 6 am with his soulmate through his laptop
  • joHNNY WAS IN PUBLIC WHEN THIS HAPPENED
  • NEITHER OF THEM CARED THO
  • they had a mini party through their screens for johnny, but they were lowkey sad bc they were so far apart :((((
  • the only thing that sucks about their relationship is that the time zone difference sUcks
  • well theres another thing that sucks but still
  • “ten its four am here why are you calling”
  • “oh shit forgot sorry”
  • they both constantly forget about the time zone too
  • chittaphon was johnny’s rock during his early trainee days
  • constantly venting to him
  • “chittaphon idk if I can do this my Korean is shit, I’m not as good dancer as the others, I miss my parents, I’m-”
  • “johnny shut up I’ve seen you dance you’re amazing you’ll learn the language and you’ll be f i n e”
  • the time difference is a bit better when johnny was training in Korea too so they always took advantage of that
  •  johnny telling ten when he was maybe debuting in exo
  • “holy shit this is amazing oh my god”
  • but then that didn’t happen
  • ten was so frustrated he couldn’t just hold him
  • he was so close to literally booking a flight to korea to go and hug him
  • he spent two days just on the computer talking trying to comfort Johnny bc he was bummed out
  •  johnny wasn’t jealous or angry or anything
  • just really really disappointed
  • anyways back to more meme-y things bc I can’t write sad things TBH
  • johnny’s reaction to ten’s pink hair
  •  “cHITTAPHON WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR HAIR
  • “IT LOOKS AMAZING JOHNNY WTF YOU TALKIMG ABOUT”
  •  “BOI WHY YOU LYING TO YOURSELF
  • “SAYS THE ONE WHO LOOKS LIKE HE SHOULD BE IN HORTON HEARS A WHO”
  • johnny roasting him about his teen superstar performances oh my god
  •  “okay you sang well and all bUT what were yOU WEARING”
  •  “I LOOKED HIP AND FRESH WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT”
  • “WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TNT AS YOUR NAME”
  • “BECAUSE IM HIP AND FRESH”
  • “yOU FORGOT THE LYRICS OF THE RAP MIDWAY
  •  "SHUT UP”
  •  okay another story time
  • so one day Johnny was feeling super bummed because he’s been waiting for debut for so long right
  • and he really needs someone to hold him and suddenly he says
  • “I wish you were here with me”
  •  Johnny doesn’t take that into account but ten does
  • and ten doesn’t say anything but it got the gears in his head thinking and after they finish chatting ten makes a decision and signs up for the global auditions that year
  • bc he did want to become and idol and like
  •  if he got in Johnny would be there
  •  so he eventually gets in but he doesn’t tell Johnny bc he wants to surprise him right
  •  and trust me okay this was the cutest thing ever
  • so when ten gets there he’s texting Johnny like
  • “hey can you go in front of the SM building for me”
  • “why”
  • “just do it man”
  • so Johnny goes outside and behold
  •  it’s a pink haired ten with a bunch of luggage
  • this part as like, a movie scene man
  •  johnny just kind of freezes and ten just has this cheeky grin
  • then suddenly ten is in johnny’s arms in two seconds flat
  • and johnny is fucking sobbing
  • “you idiot why are you here”
  • “I got accepted as a trainee dumbass”
  • “why didn’t you tell me bitch”
  •  “bc I wanted to surprise you”
  •  and Johnny just hugs him tighter and oh my god this is so cute I’m dying
  •  so after they both calm down a bit (bc ten starting crying too at some point) they go inside and johnny gives ten a tour of the building and ten is like wOw okay this is a lot
  •  and at some point near the end Johnny is like
  •  “you know you’re a lot shorter than I thought you were”
  •  “shut up or I’m flying back to Thailand”
  •  they fell asleep cuddling that night bc tenny moves fAst
  •  they go on a tour of seoul the next day and ten is in completely awe of translator Johnny and seoul
  •  when winkun found each other tenny just watched their whole meeting transaction with knowing smirks
  •  okay so rundown on their relationship
  • the memest couple in the entire world I stg
  •  also very touchy
  •  constantly cuddling and kissing on the couch in the dorm bc they have no shame
  • “gUYS JISUNG LIVES WITH US DID YOU FORGET”
  • “whoops sorry”
  • *continues to make out casually*
  • but they’re so caring for each other you wouldn’t think it
  •  ten either teases the fuck out of Johnny for not debuting or comforts him about not debuting
  • on a normal basis
  • depends on what kind of days Johnny is having
  •  but yeah soulmates tenny is actually goals and you wish you were as swaggy as tenny
