Flirty Christian Yu

Request from Anonymous:  Hi! First of all, I love your account! Can I please request a Christian Yu scenario where Jay is the readers bestfriend & helps her make Christian jealous because he’s been ignoring her or spending more time with other female celebrities lately, please?! Sorry, if its really specific, I just love Jay & Christian!!

I hope you like it :D 

—-

You were sitting at AOMG’s office waiting for your boyfriend, Christian to finish his meeting with Jay. The two of them were discussing plans for a music video. You met Christian through Jay since Jay is one of your best friends. It didn’t take you long to fall head over heels for Christian. He is very charismatic and friendly. So sometimes that part of him flirts with other girls and he doesn’t even realise it. Most of the times it doesn’t bother you, but there are days when it does. Obviously. He’s your boyfriend and seeing him doing his harmless flirting makes your blood boil. Because let’s face, there are prettier girls out there. Who’s to say he won’t find someone better than you. 

“Babe, we won’t be too long. Jay is having a little trouble understanding my concept,” Christian said as he poked his head out of the room. You simply nodded and continued scrolling through your Instagram feed not before hearing Jay’s voice, “I’m not slow. Your boyfriend doesn’t understand my VISION”. 

One hour later and Jay emerged from the room. “Ah, what do you see in him besides his big arms, tattoos and that accent. He doesn’t get what I want”. You watched Jay sat down across from you, and putting his feet on the glass table. You asked, “what were you two having trouble about?” Jay sighed and took off him cap. “I want to shoot the mv in black and white but your boy wants to it in colour”. You laughed. They always argue about the silliest things. You asked Jay, “What is my boy doing in there, Jay?” He replied, “He’s on the phone with someone. A girl. I saw the contact photo. Should I be worried, [Y/N]?” You shook your head. “If I’m not worried, why should you?” But truthfully, you were. You had noticed over the past week or so, Christian has had many phone calls and messages from his female celebrity friends.

//

“Is this dress too revealing, I feel like it is,” you asked Christian. The both of you were getting ready to an advanced screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie. You were wearing a purple maxi dress but it had a high slit so pretty much your left leg was exposed. “Nah, it’s not. It’s a movie premier so we’ll be sitting down for most of the night anyway. You’ll be fine,” Christian reassured you. The two of you then met up with the boys and girl from AOMG. “Wow [Y/N], your dress looks incomplete. They haven’t sewn it completely. You better return it,” Simon D joked. Jay then butt in, “Are you stupid? She’s obviously wearing that dress so Christian has things to do if the movie gets boring”. You hit both of them across the head. Hoody then did the same. 

When you arrived at the premiere there were many photographers and celebrities. Everyone looked stunning. Christian got out first and helped you after. Photographers had their cameras AOMG so camera flashes were coming at every angle. All of you went inside the venue and in the corner of your eye, you saw a group of female celebrities eyeing your boyfriend. His arms were around you so doesn’t that make it obvious he’s taken, you thought. After meeting and greeting most of the people there, everyone had to wait around before the movie started. During this time you saw Christian in a corner mingling with a female celebrity. You have seen her album covers around the city but you can’t remember her name. You sat down across from where they were standing. Christian then left her so you got up thinking he was looking at you but instead, he went over to the bar and said something to the bartender. The bartender then gave two glasses of white wine? champagne? You couldn’t tell but the liquid was translucent. He then went back to his ‘new female friend’. 

You continued to stared at them and tried to read their lips but you were no good at that. As you continued, you saw Christian had got his phone out and handed to her and it looked like she put her number in. Just then, the same group of females that you saw earlier approached him. Not only that, but after a few minutes of chatting, he passed his phone around to his newly found friends. 

“I asked you before and I’ll ask again, what do you see in him?” You looked over and saw Jay sitting next to you. He had noticed you staring at your boyfriend. “Shush you. You introduced him to me remember?” “Yeah, but he wasn’t asking a million girls to put their numbers in their phone before”. “It’s probably nothing,” you say. “They are just probably asking if he’s interested in being the director for their next song or something.” Jay repeated you last two words, “or something.” You turned to Jay and he noticed your eyes are watery and your nostrils are flared open. “Let’s do something fun to get back at him instead of sitting here looking at we are about to assassinate him.” You smiled, “What do you propose we do, Park?” He got up and held out his hand. You took it and followed him to the bar. Jay choose seats that were directly in Christian’s point of view. “What are we doing, Jay?” “Follow my lead,” Jay insisted. 

Jay ordered drinks for the two of you and every now and then, Jay would pull his chair closer to you and was now only inches away from you. “Jay, what are you doing, you’re squishing me towards the wall. Move back a bit.” Jay looked at you, “let’s make your boyfriend see what he is missing out of. Put your hand on my knee, [Y/N]”. “So we are trying to make him jealous?” you asked. “Duh. C’mon put your hand on my knee.” You did just that and Jay leaned into your ears and whispered, “pretend to look over but don’t look directly at him and see if he’s looking”. Again, you did just that. Christian was definitely looking at the two of you and he didn’t look too amused. 

Jay pulled back and you nodded you head, then Jay showcased one of his winks directly at you. Surely Christian saw that. You then moved your hand to brush through Jay’s hair. “Aw it’s so soft and fluffy,” you laughed. “Hey, don’t mess with it, I spent hours trying to style it,” Jay told you. “You laughed again, “you know, I half expected it to be all greasy. Are you trying to pick up someone tonight?” Jay shook his head, “I’m just here for the free drinks and food. Oh and the ahem movie.” He looked at the cameras and winked into it. “Why are you doing that? You’re so lame, Park”. 

The two of you were talking about the upcoming AOMG tour and Jay’s hand was on yours. “Is this too much, Jay? Should we stop?” you asked. “We’ll stop when he comes over”. He then pulled your chair facing him so that your legs were between his. The two of you continued to talk and you lost track of time. You didn’t even notice Jay’s hand was your bare thigh. “Ok Park, that’s far enough”. Jay apologise and ordered two more drinks. When the drinks were set down, Christian came over. “Hey, what you two talking about?” he asked as he pulled another chair and put in the middle between Jay and yourself. Jay leaned back and smirked at him. You just gave Jay your ‘stop it’ look. 

“We were just talking, that’s all,” you answered Christian’s question. Just then, one of female celebrities came and stood next to Christian. Her hand rested on his shoulders. You looked at him and he glared back you. Jay noticed then he quickly took your hand and pulled you up from your seat. “Let’s get out of here, [Y/N]”. You were lost for words. Christian would just sit there and do nothing? 

You sat on the steps and Jay had given his your jacket to cover your legs. He sat down and put his arms around you and you rested your head on his shoulders. Both of you sat in silence, before you hear Christian’s voice, “[Y/N]! Come inside, the movie is about to start”. You ignored him. 

“Babe, c’mon”. Christian was now standing in front of you, just a few steps down and Jay’s arms were still around you. “I thought you were too busy for me, Christian. Why don’t you ask your newly found girl friends to keep you company?” Christian was taken aback, “What do you mean my new girl friends?” “She meant the ones surrounding you before or specifically the one with the hand on your shoulders,” Jay retorted back. “Are you being serious?”, Christian asked, “Is that why you have been playing handsy and footsy with him all night long? Are you jealous and can I not talk to other females?” You laughed, “You can talk with all the females in the whole freaking world for all I care. But you’re always flirting with them and they might get the wrong idea. And that girl who put her hand on your shoulders. Why didn’t you do anything?” Christian was now looking back and forth at you and Jay. “It’s because I saw how the two of were acting and plus his hands were on your thighs. That’s way more intimate.”

“So you’re jealous that [Y/N] is with another guy?” Jay asked. “Of course, but when the other guy is you, I’m super worried,” Christian said, “because you two have known each for so long. [Y/N] is beautiful and Jay, you’re alright so I don’t know, maybe you two might fall for each other or something. And I don’t want to lose [Y/N]”. You smiled at Christian. “I don’t want to lose you too babe, and I’m sorry for making you jealous. And don’t you worry, Jay isn’t my type so it’s never going to happen. I know too much of his bad habits that I’ve put off by him”. Christian laughed and bent down to kiss you, “And I’m sorry too”. You gave back Jay his jacket and stood up. “Shall we going inside, babe?” 

“Hey I made whatever it is you two have happen so don’t bad mouth me, [Y/N].” Jay uttered, “and Christian, I’m just ‘alright’? Surely I’m on the same level of attractiveness as [Y/N]? Both Christian and you laughed at him. “If you could rock my girlfriend’s dress then I might change my mind, Jay”. 

WINGS You Never Walk Alone Theory Part 2

Read part 1

This part of the theory is based on the mv teasers only, i might make more parts when the mvs are out

NONE OF THESE GIFS ARE MINE (apart from one that looks like shit lol)

  • More contrasting scenes:

This one might not seem evident but notice how Jungkook goes from

  1. Looking sad, with a pale face and bluish lips to looking healthy (his hair and skin look more colourful),
  2. The weather goes from cold and gray to sunny,
  3. And in the second scene the phrase “you never walk alone” can now be read behind him

What i understand from this change of scene is him gaining hope, now he knows that “he never walks alone”, and he even looks at the distance like he is seeing a better future coming

This one i mentioned in part 1:

It goes from warm light and cosy athmosphere to dark and even scary (considering how lost Jungkook looks), but I do notice that rap line doesn’t look that happy in that second gif so i’m not very sure about this one, and like i said before i think that the reason for this mood change is probably gonna become clearer in the mv

One thing i noticed is that each time a sad/dark scene comes up it consists of one of the members being alone, in the rest of the teaser a lot of happy moments are shown and most of them (not all) consist of the boys being together

i know Jimin looks pissed but they’re having fun okay

So i guess we can say that the phrase “you never walk alone” is meant to cheer anyone having problems or going through hardships (just like Jungkook in the two first gifs of this post) because we can only be truly happy when we have each other

So maybe the paradoxal changes could represent how the boys get lost, lonely, hopeless, sad, depressive ect. but when they are all together they can get through the hardships and become happy

II. Not Today:

This teaser is very short but it can still be analyzed, the boys are running away from a bunch of black hooded figures

As soon as i saw them i was immediately reminded by the same figures from the Fire mv

There’s already many theories about them, but i think there is two most logical options that actually compliment this teaser:

Possibility n° 1: The hooded figures are the boys’ demons/sins/negative thoughts such as self hatred and depression ect

Possibility n° 2: The hooded figures are the bad people that judge the boys, underestimate them, critisize them and even contempt them

In both cases they are obviously running away from them because both are negative

In Fire mv Yoongi burns one of them with a handshake, so he is kind of tricking the figure into thinking he is friends with it but then burns it after he turns on the music

Later in the mv again the boys are tricking the figures by dancing with them at first and luring them into one place before leaving them in there and making the place explode

(this is the only gif that i made myself and it looks like shit lmao)

So this either means

Possibility n° 1: The boys went through hard times, they were depressed and did stuff they regret and were in such dark times that they even attempted suicide in different ways (Run mv, I Need U mv) why did they have a tough time in the first place? well there’s this whole big theory about Jin dying so when they lost their friend they went downhill but that’s a whole other story

So now they are trying to erase of those bad thoughts/actions by literally setting them on fire.

Possibility n° 2: Same thing but with society being the hooded figures, the boys are tired of being discriminated and treated badly so they decide to burn down all the negative people

In Not Today teaser we also notice that at the beginning we can’t see who are the boys running away from because it is hidden by smoke

This could have a meaning:

Possibilty n° 1: When we are facing our demons and having bad thoughts it is not apparent to the people around us because we don’t talk about it. You can’t tell if a person is going through depression just by looking at them

Possibility n° 2: Even though young people are treated badly in our society it is something considered normal and acceptable to do, so we don’t realise it at first, it is hidden by the ideas that society itself put in our minds

It could also have a political meaning and that is that the rulers and people n power who don’t treat us right hide that fact, they pretend like everything is doing great though people are suffering

The black hooded figures could represent one of these possibilities or they could represent them all

We are back to “you never walk alone” when we see that at the end of the Fire mv they are all together happy and having fun, leaving behind the negative thoughts.

(thighs)

And in Not Today they are all running away together and in one direction

This shows once again that we aren’t truly happy if we don’t have each other

Youth concept:

BTS is still in the youth concept and that is shown by three main factors:

  1. “For Olemas to be happy, one child has to be constantly miserable” how society judges the young people and wants them to do things they don’t want to do, so then society is content despite the sadness of the youth
  2. If BTS is truly critisizing Korea’s education system then it is defending youth and trying to show that grades and diplomas aren’t as important as the mental health and the well being of students (the youth)
  3. The black hooded figures represent the problems of young people

Now i understand why this comeback happened so soon, it’s because Blood Sweat & Tears was more like a little break from the youth concept, but it doesn’t represent the true motives of Wings -solo songs all talked about serious subjects while the title track was about temptation

Also the fact that BTS is releasing this album while they’re on tour and performing their new songs the first time during a concert shows that they are really gifting it to armys, they even said so

Wings: You Never Walk Alone is a gift from BTS to every army (or the youth in general) that is struggling with mental health issues or simply going through hard times to help them feel understood, that they are not alone and that there is always hope

BLURB: You’re cold and he’s in love.


In this world everyone receives a counter some time before their 18th birthday which counts up and stops once one has found their soulmate. On top of this, people also gain the ability to see colour after touching their soulmate for the first time.


You were dangerous.

He knew you were dangerous ever since the first time he laid eyes on you; him only just fourteen and you a little older, a little younger – he couldn’t tell. That was the thing about you – he could never tell what you were thinking, never knew what you were going to do next, and although that scared him, he stayed around anyway for a reason he never understood.

In turn you kept him company and neither of you ever needed anyone else. It was you and it was him on the swings every summer day for four summers in a row, until he got dreams too big for the little town and left to train with a struggling company in the city. In the first month he texted you endlessly, telling you about the brothers he had met and the new things he had learnt. The messages lessened in frequency as he got busier and the calls even fewer still, until there were none at all. Then it was just you on the swings, waiting for him to come home just like the way you knew he would.

FAVOURITE ALBUMS:
↳ B.A.P -  MATRIX

Our Peter Pan theory

It is fairly obvious that the comeback theme is infired (lol) by Peter Pan. We have a feeling that BigHit had this whole thing planned since (at least) Skool Luv Affair. In the new teaser pics, the instagram tags and also in the live broadcasts, they hinted at this concept.

BIGBANG’s Interview with July

          Early morning, there was a long line of traffic leaving Seoul. It was May 1st, a Friday before the long weekend. It was also the release day of Big Bang’s new single. Their comeback took as many as 1,157 days. The reaction was enthusiastic. ‘LOSER’ and ‘BAE BAE’ made it to the trending search words and the first place on music charts within seconds. The world was uproarious with stories of Big Bang. At that time, Big Bang was having a free but busy morning in the middle of a barley field in Ansung, Gyeonggido. A tractor-carriage carrying tourists passed by every 15 minutes, but no one had ever imagined Big Bang being here. Colourful clothes were hanging on the hanger leaning against a tree, and staff members and the cars that the members were riding in formed some kind of a fort. The sky was blue as ever. In an old storage building that used to be a drama film set, models that got their makeup done since 7 in the morning were rubbing their sleepy eyes and looking in the mirror. From the speakers, Big Bang’s new songs were playing repeatedly. The five members of Big Bang were stretching.


          “Which song was good?” The first one to bring a chair over and ask the question was Taeyang. It’s been a year since I have seen him after his solo album activities. He was tanner and more muscular than before. “Yesterday I stayed at the office until midnight editing the music video. Then I emptied by mind and watched for people’s reactions.” Since they hadn’t been on broadcasts or doing any kind of interview yet, Taeyang was curious as to how the new songs appealed to the public. It wasn’t an anxiety about how the market would evaluate their songs, it was 100% curiosity. To be honest, the two songs were shockingly good. If the era of Big Bang could be divided into two, pre-‘Lies’ and post-‘Lies’ periods, I felt like the new album would also become another turning point for Big Bang. This was Big Bang’s music… It’s not easy to find musicians that can create the type of music only they can make, and it’s even harder to gain popularity with such music. Other than Big Bang, who would ever be able to talk about sticky rice cakes and martial compatibility in such a classy way?


          “Isn’t it fun? The lyrics are enjoyable too. The lyrics weren’t ‘sticky rice cake’ at first, it was ‘call the police’. At first we just had the flow and we were discussing what the lyrics should be, and suddenly ‘sticky rice cake’ came up, and I really like it. We were going to use sticky rice cakes and buckwheat jelly together…but we thought that would be too much.” The background stories of how the music came to be is always interesting. But what I wanted to find out about the most was Taeyang’s long hair in ‘BAE BAE’ music video! Seeing shirtless Taeyang with long straight hair riding a horse was very shocking. “That was my idea. I wanted to be sexual but funny at the same time rather than being cool. So I overdid it, and even the staff in our office had clear likes and dislikes to the scene. So yeah, it turned out like that.” I was thinking, what would it be like if today’s photoshoot included a scene of Taeyang riding a horse? Let’s say if he learned how to horse-ride. “Not at all. Once I climbed on a horse without practice and I was almost crushed to death. Although it was fine because it was a well-trained horse.”


          In the music video, TOP with a cat-eye contact lense on one eye, appears with Kohei Nawa’s crystal deer. Just like how he appeared with Kim Hwan Ki’s ‘deer’ in his previous solo track <Doom Dada>, he again brought forth a modern artwork to the image of Big Bang. TOP is not only a quite well-known furniture collector but also a known art lover. “Kohei Nawa and I are friends. I appear in the MV without one eye, and in the lyrics I say ‘pretty eyes like a deer’, which is an old expression. Since it’s like falling in love when I meet a girl that has something that I don’t have, I naturally came up with this. Also, I rap about natural beauties, and the artwork is a ‘natural’ taxidermied deer.” How they can put a lot of effort into each music video? That’s because their release is a special long-term project. CEO Yang Hyun Suk had said that instead of releasing a formal album right away, Big Bang will be releasing 4 single albums (M, A, D, E) with 2 songs each on the first day of every month from May to August. In September, the word ‘Made’ will be completed and the full album will be released.


          The songs have been already made. But the list hasn’t been confirmed yet. If they make a better song in between, the list may be added or changed. It’s still a secret whether there will be more songs in the final album.  “I can’t tell you. We need to look cool too, right?” The only thing they can add to what’s already been said is that they can’t restrict the genre of their music, and also that all songs have been made recently. Of course GD started preparing the new album ever since the actives of <Still Alive> have ended, but it was early this year when Big Bang got together and good songs were starting to be made. Things just worked out naturally when they were laughing and having fun. They dumped the old songs with no regrets. “That was when we had the most fun. Around March and April when we were done recording, we decided to listen to all the songs one day. We had wine and cheese in the studio and we danced and had fun with the music. It was a lot of fun.” I can imagine that it would have been like the music video of ‘We Like 2 Party’.


          The photoshoot was no different. Taeyang said that Daesung in his beret looks like a bus guide lady and shouted “Ohri~”. Daesung started shaking his body and danced in response. It has been a while since Daesung, who usually doesn’t leave his house unless he’s working, has been out to the field like this. At their concert at the Olympics Stadium before the release of the album, Seungri even commented about Daesung “He doesn’t do anything other than playing the drums at home. Please come out of the house”. “It’s somewhat true. I don’t enjoy going out. I wanted to learn how to play the drums ever since I was young, so I started learning it after my first solo album tour in Japan. It’s been around 2 years. It’s a lot of fun.” And the reaction of the members after watching him play? “Do you know the movie <Whiplash>? It’s like that.” This crazy and comical drummer basically doesn’t give a damn about anything. For the filming of music video of ‘LOSER’, Daesung changed his hairstyle to create an image of loneliness. “When I covered my eyes and changed my image, I became cautious and quiet. To be honest, I can’t see very well.” Daesung learned how to communicate without his eyes. “So I’m studying how to act with my lower face”


          Daesung has been busy with his solo activities in Japan for a while. The hyungs commented on Daesung’s popularity: “In Japan, Daesung is the most popular after the emperor.* Whenever we’re on stage for a Japan tour, we lose our nerves because of the cheers for Daesung.” They jokingly bragged about Daesung’s popularity. Daesung didn’t know how to react to their compliments. “Ayoo, what are you talking about. The reason why I can do my solo activities is because of Big Bang, and that tells us how Big Bang’s popularity got bigger in Japan.” The last day of the concert in April was Daesung’s birthday. Under Seungri’s lead, a cake was brought up to the stage and hundreds of fans and the members congratulated his birthday. After the concert, they was an after-party. “I had a lot of fun. Some people were worried that I was working on my birthday, but it was the most special birthday I’ve ever had. If I didn’t have that, I would have just stayed home and order a lot of delivery food, and that would have been it.” I was curious as to what he got for his birthday from the members. “Nothing. We just decided one day not to exchange gifts. Just like that.” The reason is pretty great. As Big Bang’s popularity grew, their income grew along with that, and if they start choosing suitable gifts for each other, one day they’ll have to buy houses for each other. So this is what a life of a superstar is like.

          The members think that the biggest superstar amongst Big Bang is Seungri, of course. “He’s like a celebrity the most amongst us. I envy him.” Even when travelling, this young elegant gentleman has a different way of doing things. Because he has world-wide personal connections, private planes are involved. He even has a friend that owns a club/team. “My friend has an elevator in his house!” Seungri, chewing on a cheap kimbab, proudly added. Members tease but adore this innocent maknae. Honestly speaking, Seungri had a lot of thoughts while preparing for this album. He was dispirited from different incidents too. “I felt like I was losing my judgment. So rather than taking up my opinions, I listened to what the members or other producers said. In the end, I’m happy that the album is out.” Seungri was assigned the most important parts of the shoot. For example, he roughly drove a vintage pickup truck at 30km/h. He also put his arms around a model and acted out a romantic scene. Seungri, who had a guitar on him, strum the strings and started singing Lee Jang Hee’s song from the 60’s. “I have something to tell you~. Tonight I suddenly have something to tell you.” Then he asked model Lee Ho Jung, whom he first met today, in a gentle voice. “Do you by any chance know how to play a C minor?”


          The photoshoot continued until sunset. With the clear moon, a helicam was flying in the sky. Members, who have never seen a helicam this close, were amused by it like little kids. “We have a lot of fun just by being together. We’ve known each other since our trainee days, when we were in our 10’s. We know everything about each other. When I go out, I don’t have any friends. That’s because I don’t have a lot of common experiences to talk about with others. But when the five of us get together, we chat and we laugh. That’s what powers me up the most.” Taeyang said. Next year, it will be Big Bang’s 10th anniversary. The finale of ‘Made World Tour’ that will continue to 2016 will probably be their 10th-year commemorative concert. Big Bang has already overcome the limits of an idol group from YG Entertainment. Boys in their 10’s who used to sing ‘Dirty Cash’ without even understanding the meaning have surpassed a stage of creating their own, classy songs and became an icon of an era. Of course the process was not always as good as playing with water in the summer. We can see that just by looking at the lyrics of the song ‘LOSER’. GD said this: “Everyone has their own problems. We do too, because we’re humans. Seeing us from TV, people may think that after performing at a concert in front of a lot of people, we go out to parties, drink and hang out with girls, but that’s not true. When we’re done our work, we go home, watch a movie, sleep, and that’s it. There’s a sense of emptiness that we get from this.” What kept them going was each other.


          Whenever Big Bang released a new album, it was always beyond our expectations. What would it be like after 10 years? “If there’s no excitement, there’s no reason for us to continue.” TOP was determined. GD added that other members agree with TOP. “From a third-person point of view, if our appearance on stage is not good, then we don’t do it. If we’re not cool and not confident, what can we show you? Trying too hard to look cool, I hate that so much.” So this means when Big Bang is no longer like Big Bang anymore. “But right now, this is really fun. I felt it again with our activities with the current album. As time passes, we start to find out more about ourselves, what we can do to become better, that’s how it’s been for us until now. I want to keep it this way for 10, 20 years from now,” Taeyang said. Just like the name ‘Made’, Big Bang is still in the process of making themselves with the completion of the new songs. Even when it got dark outside, members sat down in a deserted house and continued to talk about their music and their future. After their manager nagged them a couple times, they finally got up. Before getting in the car, I told them “You guys are cool”. Instead of a goodbye, they said, “We think we’re cool too! We still have that ‘hungry spirit’ inside us.”

*emperor: seems like they were referring to the four famous Korean actors in Japan.

NCT THEORIES ??

I built my theories based on @andthenkpophappened‘s theories (x) and @jenosgf‘s theories (x) !! I suggest reading their theories first before mine

My theories are also ultimately built on the idea that everything is just a dream, so I’ve gathered some stuff as well as analyzed things through a dream interpretation point of view. I honestly tried answering some questions but really, I made some more lol rip…

1: SM_NCT # 1. The Origin

  • The first thing we see is an hour glass, but instead of two bulbs like usual, there are three. This could hint towards the notion already addressed that this story does not follow Earth time.
  • The very next peculiar thing we see is a red moon/a blood moon. In dreams, blood moons usually mean, or are associated with fear of the future; of the unknown. (Perhaps fear of what could happen once they realize that everything is just a dream?)
  • The little boy plants a red flag. Red flags are usually warnings signs about danger or a problem. It could also be a symbol of a revolution. 
  • After the little boy draws on a piece of paper with charcoal, three mountains, a moon, and an ocean, we see glimpses of him standing in what looks to be a field of tall grass. Dreaming of tall grass is a warning to the dreamer to not become entangled in unreal ideas, and bring order to thoughts and behavioural patterns (just like jumping from one dream to another). It can also mean illusions and unattainable hopes. 
  • A woman appears behind him, in my opinion, could be his mother. 
  • She extends her hand and makes him choose between three colours,

ANALYSIS AND THEORY ON BTS EPILOGUE: YOUNG FOREVER

Yo hello its going to take awhile so sit yourself back down and let me explain the analysis of this. This epilogue (or atleast this era) is supposed to finally show the relation and back story of I Need U and Run (part 1 and part 2 era). 

From what we’ve seen before, it is clearly obvious that the main plot behind this was about a group of 7 boys talking about both the pleasures and pains of youth/being young. (the whole JIN IS DEAD and TAEHYUNG KILLED HIS FATHER thing can be considered as side plots for now).

First lets start off with the symbolisms (bc we all know how much they love doing this):

It starts off with a distorted projection of the title “YOUNG FOREVER” which was previously only “FOREVER”. Considering it is a projection, we can safely assume this is from a TV. Normally this kind of misinterpreted screen comes from a TV that’s old and worn out so the quality tends to be worse than being young and healthy. However right after this, the projection changes to show a high quality version of the title “YOUNG FOREVER”. This transition meant that although they have grown older, the spirit of their youth shall not die.

[ENG] SEVENTEEN’s Interview @ Haru Hana Magazine (Part 3)

Parts: [1] [2] [3]

※The interview was done before the comeback in the middle of April.

Music production episode—Secret talk about producing music & special stage

Q:  What is your inspiration for composing music?

WW: Reading books, movies, dramas etc. becomes the hint for writing lyrics and stage performances.

VN: It’s the trend. Because lyrics are the stories of this era. Because (I) want to write lyrics that everyone can relate to, I often search up on trends on the internet.

SC: You have to have a lot of imagination. Sketching out the music video on your mind, and writing lyrics according to that scene. But the MV that I always think about is always totally different from the actual MV. (laughs)

Q: How did you all create the concept for the choreography?

HS: After listening to the music, we will first hold a concept meeting within the unit. We considered concepts like should we be good students, should we be bad students. From then, I will search for items that complies with this concept, and after that, it’s the time to start making the choreography. Then, we will gather everyone one by one, and make changes to the choreography that we already have.

MG: In the instance of PRETTY U, we rewatched “High School Musical” while preparing for the choreography. We were really concerned about how should we do it to make it fun and overflowing with energy on the stage.

WW: This time’s use of books in our performance is also a point, because it’s the first time we used small props, we couldn’t really imagine it happening…. We are a bit worried because of that.

MINO: BODY

1. I love the audio. I am in the mood right now for something like this. Dirty, dark and slightly dangerous with some sort of risky element. I feel like it’s the flip side to Bobby’s music. Bobby is younger, more carefree and living in a house-party. Mino’s solo is older, darker and living in an estranged two-person-party. 

2. I don’t understand a lot of Korean yet (I’m learning) so the audio alone had a weariness to it. Not quite desperation but almost. When I saw the MV, it definitely took on a more sultry and seductive vibe. This is the main reason why I always listen to the audio first, the MV always colours my judgement. I dig both vibes though.

3. I’ve always loved how smooth and grounded Mino’s voice and rhythm is. This song is such a good example of it. He is so restrained and never lets go of the beat. It’s really calming to listen to. Bobby is forever chasing or getting chased by the rhythm. Haha. Some days that’s all I want to listen to though.

4. Maybe MOBB’s concept is really: no shirts. I’m fine with it. I support all their artistic endeavours. 

5. Okay all jokes aside, I actually love the contrast between the personas Mino and Bobby are going with right now. Mino gives off this quieter but more menacing and seductive vibe. He seems more mature and world-weary of the two. Bobby is louder, confident and flirty. Mino kinda draws you inward into a dark corner but Bobby is all out in the open. Like fireworks. God, I need to stop getting poetic. 

6. I’m not sure how their voices are going to mesh but the solos have me really excited for the MOBB material tomorrow. I love aggressive fun music but I’m also hoping we get something more heavy and introspective too. 

7. Once upon a time I wanted Jaewon in this project but right now, I can see why it’s just a duo. It makes sense. Mino and Bobby are already excellent performers and Jaewon might not be ready for this. Not yet. 

8. I wonder who I should thank for all the amazing material this week. Hashtag Blessed And Grateful.

Seventeen’s first win!!

Wow! This is so exciting and tear jerking! Seventeen is a super talented group of 13 people that make up 3 units which makes up one group( hence the namesake Seventeen). I found out about Seventeen during Mansae and truthfully, I have never learned so many names and fallen in love in such a short period on time.

To be honest, when Pretty U came out I was worried. I watched the live show and when they showed the music video I was a bit underwhelmed, especially as all the action in the mv distracted me from the awesomeness of the song.

Yet the live… The live proved just how good this song is with its ‘anime opening style’ part that Woozi and the other members parts were also vibrant and colourful. The dance was interesting( though i must confess that I preferred Joshua’s synchronisation mistake to the actual, sorry) and I found myself listening to the song on repeat and buying the album!

However, why was I so worried? Well that is because I was scared that not enough people would not for seventeen’s comeback, especially with Eunji and Twice’s comeback. And I was really upset because I really wanted Seventeen to win at least once!

And they did! They deserve it! Watching them cry and and be so happy made me want to cry and be happy! Pretty U is beautiful, fun and amazing and I can’t wait to listen to the rest of the album.

So congratulations Seventeen!

Congratulations
S.Coups- the great leader( Hulk coups)
Jeonghan- our special Angel
Joshua-our soulful voice

[TRANS] FINEBOYS (September 2016) - The Bag and Favourite Items of People You’re Curious About

B.A.P

Perfume has been trending amongst the members lately!

“All of them love clothes, but their tastes are totally different!” is B.A.P. If you ask “who is the most fashionable in the group?”, they’ll agree that “Zelo is the one who always chases after the trends!”. Within the B.A.P members, the one thing that is commonly trending amongst them is perfume. When they went to London during their world tour, it seems like they all visited Jo Malone and bought their favourite scent. Don’t forget to check out their new “FEEL SO GOOD” MV where they’re dressed in various outfits.

[TRANS 141128] Numéro TOKYO Jan/Feb 2015 - 7 octaves of cool

Getting close to the 6 people with rising popularity!
B.A.P’s true artistic intentions talk.

Getting their big break soon after their Korean debut in January 2012, they’ve overcome borders, starting with Japan, Germany and others, and swept the rookie awards; the large-scale rookies “B.A.P”. Debuting in Japan in October last year, they’ve simultaneously gained attention in the blink of an eye, and boldly held a 3-city 6-concert arena tour only 2 months after debuting, causing a huge stir with B.A.P’s existence. There’s high speed rap interwoven in a strong and stately hip hop sound, and sharp powerful dancing to overwhelming 7 octave-strong vocals. Separating themselves from all the idol groups, they’ve gained attention from around the world with their inimitable performance. A huge dissection into B.A.P’s charisma that has caught Japan in a frenzy. The 6 with overflowing talent have told us their true intentions; what is their next stage?

 

―― The single “Excuse Me” that was released in September is a number where you can feel the strong confidence of B.A.P. Are you always aware of your “confidence”?
YJ: We perform on stage believing that our songs are the best and give our best to demonstrate our powers to the maximum. Having confidence is too a reason that makes a stage amazing. “Excuse Me” was originally recorded on a Korean album, but we made it into a single due to the strong support from Japanese fans. Since we filmed the MV in Japan around the time when we were able to express a song properly, I have confidence in the MV!
DH: I also have a lot of confidence in B.A.P’s songs. I guess “Excuse Me” is a song that especially reflects that.
HC: That’s right. We perform on stage with more confidence than anyone else. However, when we’re off stage, we each have parts where we don’t have confidence in!
YG: I don’t have confidence in many things other than music, so I’m not really something who’s filled with confidence when I’m off stage. I’m shy as well, so I’m not good at talking (laughs).

GUYS I HAVE A THEORY

Okay, so this isn’t going to be super elaborate or anything and will probably be short as hell because I only just thought of it, but I may expand it in the future when I think of more ideas because my brain is dead rn.

Keep reading

Bangtan Boys - I Need U

So, I made up a theory after watching the music video for about 1000000 times.

I believe that everyone except Jin (and maybe V aswell) commited suicide (my poor heart TT.TT).
Jimin is pretty obvious, he drowned himself in the bathtub
Suga set his room one fire after putting fuel all over the place (as seen in 19+ snippet)
Jungkook probably got beaten and all the pain (breaking up with his gf and so on) made him step on a strongly trafficked street and he was hit by a car
J-Hope was either depressed and had to take pills or was drug addicted. He got over it after being with his friend and forgetting about the pain/being happy again (see how he spilled all the pills into the fire?). But in the end you see him all alone on the bridge, possibly commiting suicide by jumping of the bridge (need the uncutted video to confirm this)
Rap Monster’s “lollipop” is surely not only a lollilop but represents a cigarette (see how he holds the lollipop? like someone who is smoking… maybe in the 19+ video he’s actually holding a cigarette). He is standing at a gas station maybe reminiscing about the time they all had fun driving around in the car (gas station <–> car?) then ended up dropping the lollipop/cigarette and you know what happens when fire meets gas? yep. booom!
V obviously killed that man after seeing him abusing the girl (blood on his hand in the 19+ snippet). Then he ended up burning that man (little scene when he looked like he was about to sneeze or whatsoever and realized what he did). Not really sure what happens to him next but I believe he commited suiced aswell.
The reason for this is Jin’s scene with the white flower petals. If you look closely and count, there are exactly 6 petals, each standing for one member that commited suicide. For me it looks like Jin is in some sort of psychiatric clinic (the way the room he is in looks like). He most probably had a mental breakdown after seeing all his friends commiting suicide and ended up getting hospitalized. Burning those petals was some sort ritual, saying goodbye to his friends (isn’t white the colour of flowers used at funerals?) Even though he may not be “physically dead“ he is definitely “emotionally dead”… if that makes any sense (the way he was laying in bed).

I’ve read this sentence somewhere (though I don’t know from who it is, sorry :/)
“sometimes even having the best of friends isn’t enough to save you”

I think it fits pretty well… obviously they were all friends and they all had fun when they were together (my favorite scene was when they were at the fireplace) but because of one certain thing, everything changed and even the best friendship isn’t always enough.
Maybe they all commited suiced because of a girl or maybe one commited suicide and the others, not able to cope with the fact that they lost a friend, ended up commiting suicide aswell (like some sort of domino-effect?)… I’m not sure.
I actually think it started with V killing a person, then commiting suicide because of his own guilt and then Jimin commited suicide (seeing V killing himself), followed by Suga. Seeing his friends, who were the reason why J-Hope stopped taking pills, now all dead, he couldn’t take all the pain and ended his life aswell. See how painful and broken Jungkook looked when he bumped into those random guys? And then we have Rap Monster at the gas station, realizing that the time when they were all happily together will only be memories and will never happen again.

… so, that’s my theory or maybe I’m just reading to much into this video and they actually simply want to show us, that dating a girl just means pain and sorrow and it’s better to turn gay and stay as OT7 forever ^^ I have to say I prefere the latter.

I’m having mix feelings about the 19+ mv being released… like this version just made my heart ache so much and I’m an emotional mess right now even after 5hours, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO SURVIVE THE OTHER VERSION???? T.T

On a different note: Whoever the director for this music video was, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!! So many beautiful scenes, those on the trains, at the campfire, running trough the tunnel… it seriously looked like a movie
also, how amazing are BTS’ acting skills?! Can we have a web drama with them or something? PLEASE??

(sorry for the long text and if there are any embarrassing mistakes, english is not my first language and I’m also too lazy to re-read this text. Haha)
