tall member

some fae facts from lore

  • ‘fae’ range from anything like goblins and imps to the little pixies with the wings that everyone associated with fairies to the seven-foot tall members of the royal courts. some even consider the banshee to be fae. (also trolls, gnomes, elves, djinn, dwarves, leprechauns, will-o-wisps, etc.)
  • some think the fae are evil, some think they are fallen angels, but most are considered to be a chaotic neutral force. some might call this ‘whimsically evil.’
  • honey makes them drunk.
  • iron poisons them, as it does many magical beings.
  • some were-creatures were probably just fae in disguise, since fae can assume any form.
  • they sometimes lure humans with music that makes them want to follow and dance. they have to dance for what feels like a year and a day but it actually only seconds.
  • true names of the fae have power over them. they often use aliases when dealing with non-fae.
  • some people are gifted with fae sight, which allows them to see the fae and also sometimes peeks into the future through their dreams.
  • cats hate the fae, and the fae hate them back. 
  • iron horseshoes over the door can act as a fae deterrent.
  • they sometimes kidnap human children and leave their own children or elderly behind. these are called changelings.
  • fae are generous with gifts, especially for polite people, but prefer gifts in return.
  • that being said, better to avoid accepting gifts. you probably don’t have enough to pay them back. by saying ‘thank you,’ you acknowledge that a gift was given and that you now owe something in return. being indebted to the fae = bad time
  • fae can’t lie, but truth and honesty aren’t always the same.
  • asking for a favor will cause offense. make it seem like it’s their idea to help you.
  • most things offend them, actually.
  • some fae can smell a lie. there’s no way of knowing which ones unless they tell you.
  • fae use ‘glamour’ to hide their appearance or habitations around humans. ‘glamour’ can be gifted for use by humans.
  • it’s better for fae to have half-breed children than no children at all, so relationshops with humans are fine. it just rarely works out fine for the human.

a thing that never fails to amuse me is knowing that there are people out there who don’t know anything about knk, or are just starting to recognize their faces and are but mildly aware of that tall handsome as fuck member they’re probably tagging with “oh daddy”, but what they don’t realize yet is that seungjun is literally the opposite. he is a child in every sense no matter how you twist it and i just wish i could be there to witness their reactions as they find out and scramble to delete every sweat emoji tag from his posts

What I relate with KNK members
  • Either for completely random reasons or serious reasons, but when I hear/see these things, I think of the members.
  • Youjin: tall buildings, dads,blue, warmth, that one kid in a class that never talks but when he does he sounds really smart, eyebrows
  • SeungJun: skipping ropes, kids, confused looks, whining,cuddles, that laughing loudly in public and having people stare at you, parks, anime
  • Inseong: eyes, deer, rabbit, yellow, sunshine, those summer days that aren't deadly hot but are perfect weather with no clouds and the sun is bright and lighting is perfect, big hugs
  • Jihun: mansae!!, cats, specifically my black and white cat Miiko, soft blankets, back scratches, that one person in you're friend group that you were horrified of at first but now you're best friends, gelato, cuddles
  • Heejun: frogs, memes, Pepe, screaming, that one person who doesn't look at the camera. Ever. (Ie me lol), suits, fluffy things, my stuffed alpacas, more frogs
Keyakizaka46, one year after

2016 was definitively Keyakizaka’s year. They took the idol scene by storm with powerful songs, delivering strong messages within their lyrics. One performance after another, they turned all opportunities given to them into concrete visibility to curious fans over Japan. They are now known as the group who broke through kouhaku 8 month after their debut only.

What’s remarkable is, despite being a group that promote unity through intense and packed choregraphy, many fresh traits and personalities emerge from many of them. It’s time to update their profile after one year of growth.


Imaizumi Yui

Status : Royal guard 

Type : Cute 

Special skill : Singing

Youngest sister of 5, which 4 of them are boys, “Zuumin” has captured the heart of many fans thanks to her easy going character and natural and playful personality. She is probably the best singer of the group despite her small height, and show a lot of fighting spirit to not let it be a burden (most of keyaki member are tall in japanese standard). She is, according to many interviews, a very competitive member and aim for the zero position. 

She is a very lovely and funny idol that warm the atmosphere up in variety show, and i’m sure she will continue to grow as Sony management put a lot of resources to develop the group. However her ambition is a double edged sword, as it is undeniably fuel for improvement but can also be a threat for Keyakizaka unity. Someone to absolutely follow.

Shida Manaka

Status : Royal Guard

Type : Cool

Special skill : Strongest in Arm wrestling

Her atypic beauty, height and calm aura helped Shida manaka build a cool character within a cool group. This is the most popular type among female fans but also appreciated by male fans by it’s originality. This cool side may look like she’s hard to approach, but variety shows allowed fans to see a softer side of her over the year, making her even more loveable. Thanks to Keyakizaka focus on cool song, this is where she truly shines, especially in “Kataru nara, Mirai wo”. 

Manaka may be slightly below the group average in singing and dancing, but definitively has this potential in visual and modelling that reminds fan’s that Keyakizaka is still a sister group of Nogizaka. Also, Keyaki drama showed that Manaka fit the “bad girl” role perfectly and we can see it exploited in the future.


Sugai Yuuka

Status : Royal guard

Type : Elegant

Skill : Horsemanship

Yuuka surprised everyone when it was revealed in TV show that she usually spends her vacation in Karuizawa ( most luxuous location where rich people spend their holiday to) sealing her “oujou-sama” character (princess-like) for fans and member alike. Her elegant and gracious silhouette as well as a polite, soft way to talk to others makes her the unofficial captain of Keyakizaka. Don’t let her humble character fool you, as when it comes to efficiently introduce Keyaki to big music shows like Music Station, she is in total control, making her very reliable.

Adding to her Oujou-sama character ( which is a strength for sure) she has this slightly ponkotsu (fail) character, bringing a comical side to each of her appearance in Variety show. Unfortunately her quiet trait might be a burden to be qualified for the 0 position, but she has definitively become one of the pillar of this ever-growing group 

Watanabe Rika

Status : Royal guard

Status : Ponkotsu (fail) god

Special skill : involuntarily create hilarious situations

Hands down the most awkward member of Keyakizaka, this feeling is enhanced as you realize she is also the oldest of the group. In fact, she might be a child trapped in a adult body. But this is also this extreme clumsiness that makes her attractive, and is literally a goldmine for MC hosts to tease her on everything, starting a laughter in the group each time. Airhead is an understatement, but she also showed to be very sensitive and kind-hearted, winning the support of many fans. 

Her unique personality make up for her lack of dancing and singing ability. Her presence in Keyakizaka is necessary to keep a wide range of character. Diversity is wealth, and Rika is probably one of the member remembered the most by fans. But because her personality is extreme, it might also means she’s the least capable to change.

Kobayashi Yui

Status : Royal guard

Type : Quiet

Special skill : Instrumentals

Along with Imaizumi Yui she forms Yuichanzu, a talented duo who show great chemistry in soft song and ballad. She is a very good singer, and perhaps the best musician of Keyakizaka. Her peaceful character oppose her teammate zuumin cheerful personality, making the duo quite complementary. She express her feeling best in music, something rare in idol entertainment these days. Being quiet in variety show might look like a weakness, but only her and Zuumin are able to create songs like Bob dylan wo kaesanai and Shibuyagawa, indispensable to develop a different side from Keyaki cool image.

She is a force to be reckoned with. the power to make B-sides great.

Moriya Akane

Status : Candidate to Royal guard

Type : Gachi ( Serious)

Special skill : fastest of the group

I have to admit i noticed Akane only recently thanks to Keyakitte, Kakenai? sports episodes. Very competitive, she cried after having lost to track and field challenge even though it was her specialty. However, her upset doesn’t come from being beaten, but more because her team victory relied on her performance and she failed to live up expectation. She actually has a noble character, showed many times like when cheering for her teammates during rope pulling as well 

While the idol genre promoted in essence cute and clumsy girl, Moriyak Akane show the complete opposite being confident in variety show and expressing lot of willpower and determination, earning the member and fan respect. Oh, and she has a beautiful smile.

Oda Nana

Status : Promising member

Type : Funny

Special skill : comfortable in Variety

Oda Nana probably isn’t the cutest, nor the best singer of the group, but certainly earned her place among her comrades by bringing the essential “boke” and “tsukkomi” aspect to keyakizaka. Thanks to her quick capability of adaptation and sharp tongue, Oda Nana is able to read the atmosphere during variety show and make the best ouf of it ( dixit her comedy challenge with Watanabe Rika, or the skit challenge). She also have a motherly character that proved to be very important for a group stability, especially Keyakizaka who still are Rookie.

Watanabe Rika and her will make the perfect comedy duo in the future and i’m sure she will build a fanbase thanks to the positive influence she’s bringing to Keyaki.

Part 2 coming soon….

Taeler Hendrix
[May 21st, 2016]

The Queens Of Combat Champion Taeler Hendrix enjoys being known as “Positively Poison”, whether her opponents are fond of that title or not! Either way, the “Hendrix Experience” has grown in record numbers, as the ever growing fanbase of Taeler’s have stood behind her every move. The last month has been very kind to Hendrix, who not only still stands tall as a member of The House Of Truth, but has gained victory after victory in every company she staps foot in. Can Taeler be stopped, or will everyone forced to #HailHendrix?


EDIT: Ms. Hendrix demanded that I post this photo of her victory over Barbi Hayden last April. I promise, it was her idea.

After teasing MJ by blocking him, Sanha pointing JinJin at the back. 

Eunwoo saying, “Where? Where?” (funnily, I think he really can’t see him. Eunwoo’s blocking most of JinJin.)

Then, Moon Bin goes to the back and completely blocks JinJin. AHAHAHAHA…

Tall members teasing short members… (technically, dongsaengs teasing the hyungs…) lol

KNK appeared as a guest on June 22 on the MBC show, Weekly Idol. KNK consists of really tall members, the tallest being at 189 cm and the shortest being at 180 cm. Heechul, being around 179 cm, stood in between the members, and caused immense laughter, especially by Hani. Hani told him, “Still, you’re good looking,” and he replied, “I don’t lose out in looks no matter where I go,” causing even more laughter.
