Honestly moments like this make me cringe so fucking hard. There are so many fans who do the craziest shit and are obsessed with Korean culture and make Korean food and try and study the language and have a life goal of going to live in Korea and talk out their ass about how good kimchi is. But as soon as something happens that doesn’t show idols in a positive light they do a complete one fucking eighty and appear so ignorant.

As a nonKorean, you don’t get to pick and choose what parts of THEIR culture is wrong or right. You don’t get to choose what parts of THEIR culture you agree with. You don’t get to shit on them because they think differently to you on topics. Their opinions come from years of their own cultural knowledge and socialization.

I’m so fucking sick of the warped view people have on an entire fucking country. The fetishism that goes on. The weird blindness to only seeing things from a western lense. Because guess what? Korea is extremely conservative in lots of ways. They don’t let you do drugs. Porn websites are blocked. You generally don’t live with your bf/gf before you’re married. Having a child before you’re married is considered shameful. You live with your parents until you’re like 30 and when they tell you not to do something, you don’t do it. Abortions are illegal (but not hard to get). Birth control outside condoms is hard to obtain. And drugs are literally the fucking worst.

And idols don’t live in bubbles. They’re Korean. They have grown up in this culture and they know the rules. They know what is culturally acceptable. They know what could cause a scandal and ruin their career. But they, like all other Koreans, take calculated risks and make decisions based on all the schema they have.

No one FORCED TOP to bring a girl back to his house. No one FORCED TOP to smoke weed with her once. Or on the second time. Or the third fucking time. They were decisions he himself made. He then made the decision to try and lie about it, knowing all that he knows about the Korean culture. There is nothing more to it than that.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t think it’s fair. It doesn’t matter if you don’t think it’s right. Because it’s what happens. And if you really cares about all this ‘injustice’ to him, you wouldn’t be worried about just him. Lots of other famous Koreans have gone to jail for weed. Lot’s of other Koreans have had huge scandals and felt the force of the public, but I haven’t seen a single thing said about it.

And it’s shitty because you pick and choose who is worthy of being defended. No one said shit about Bom and her prescription drugs. No one said shit about that huge marijuana ring involving idol trainees and rappers last year. Because you don’t seem to actually care about the fact drugs are an issue in Korea. You care about the fact TOP is in trouble. Stop trying to make this a political thing about marijuana, because it’s not. He’s a grown ass man that knew the law and consequences. You just care that your idol got caught.

I get so angry about this shit. Not all of you do it. But some of you honestly need to grow up and see shit for what it is.

“For three months when I was in middle school, I created small inventions in my mind and documented them on a daily basis. For example, things like… recycling dead leaves in the fall that nobody uses and creating energy from it, or when a typhoon hits, utilizing the wind against the buildings by converting frictional force into electrical energy. I presented my ideas to my teachers as well.”
“What did your teachers say?”
“They said things like…’Those ideas are ridiculous. How are you going to enter a science high school with these ideas?’ After that, I stopped. I felt like the inventions I created weren’t ‘good enough.’”
“In the end, did you get into a science high school?”
“No, I didn’t. I got to the final interview, but I didn’t make it. Still, I want to be someone who is always keeping busy regardless. Instead of just being someone who does nothing but rest because there isn’t anything they can do, I want to be a person who is always doing a lot of things.”

* Science high school: It is an advanced school for the top students in Korea. Students can only enter by passing an entrance exam based on their middle school records.

“중학생 때 3개월 동안 매일 조그만 발명품을 생각하고 기록했어요. 예를 들어 가을에 그냥 버리는 낙엽을 모아 에너지로 활용하거나, 태풍이 불면 바람이 많이 부니까 건물에 닿는 마찰 에너지를 전기 에너지로 바꾸는… 그런 아이디어였어요. 그리고 선생님들한테 보여드렸죠.”
“선생님들이 뭐라고 하시던가요?”
“그냥… ‘이건 말도 안 되는 것들이다. 이걸로 어떻게 과학고에 갈래?’ 라고 하셨어요. 그 뒤로는 더 이상 하지 않았어요. 내가 한 것들이 ‘별로구나’ 라고 느꼈거든요.”
“결국 과학고에는 가지 않았나요?”
“네. 최종면접까지 올라갔는데 떨어졌어요. 그래도 전 쉬지 않는 사람이 되고 싶어요. 아무것도 못하게 되어서 그저 쉬는 것 말고는 할게 없는 사람보다 계속해서 무언가 하고 있는 게 많은 사람이 되었으면 좋겠어요.”

i think the difference between exo vs others is that exo sets the standard so we're always competing against ourselves. it's like running a race and when you're first you're just trying to beat your past records and get through the finish line and you never look back. but with everyone else, they're just trying to catch up to us so when other fandoms release things, they're always trying to beat exo instead of themselves. at least they all have a great view of exo's amazing asses though :)

EXO created the standards, they defined the standards, and they are the ones who at the end of the day tear down and redefine the same standards. Wh do you think other groups try to mediapla with “[insert group] VS EXO” [so and so group has beaten exo’s records!” they ALWAYS have to insert EXO. That’s because EXO THEMSELVES ARE the standard of what it means to be a top group in Korea.

“I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you, or if it was the second or third or fourth. But I remember the first moment I looked at you walking towards me and realized that somehow the rest of the world seemed to vanish when I was with you.”

JYP has announced a new girl group in the company and you happened to be one of the members. The moment you signed in, that was the moment you were hoping to just focus on music and your career, but something gets in the way. A massive love triangle is what causes a bumpy road for you and your future.

Hi there, i love your blog. Could you imagine how seventeen propose their s/o, it would be great...

S.Coups: Seungcheol would propose to you when you’re both on a trip together. He’d take you to one of the most beautiful places there, and propose to you under the stars.

Jeonghan: Jeonghan would propose to you in a grassy and flowery field. You’d both be watching the clouds, when he’d suddenly point out that one of the clouds looked like a ring. That’s when he’d take out the ring he got you and propose.

Joshua: Jisoo would propose to you at the top of one of the tallest buildings in the city at nighttime. You’d be looking at the view of the city, and when you turn to him, he’d on one knee holding out the ring.

Jun: Junhui would propose to you at the beach. He’d take you out for a walk when it’s sunset, and suddenly get down on one knee and propose to you. He’d say it in Chinese at first to tease you. “(laughs) Junhui, what does that mean?” “Marry me.”

Hoshi: Soonyoung would make a loud and extravagant proposal, one that perfectly describes him. He’d get all the other members in on it, and probably plan an entire Scavenger Hunt around the city, including a flash mob.

Wonwoo: Wonwoo would propose to you in a beautiful garden. He’d plan a creative proposal, maybe by carefully place the ring (he’d make sure it’s diamond) in the middle of a rose and handing it to you. It’d be cute, but he’d ruin it by making a lame joke. “I guess you could say you… slipped into the diamond life.”

Woozi: Jihoon would do it somewhere private. He’d propose to you through a song he made, singing while playing the piano or guitar. It probably took him months to complete the song, but it was all worth it in the end.

DK: Seokmin would propose to you with an amusement park picture. It’d seem like a simple hangout since the other members would be there too. He’d suggest a ride where they capture a picture at the end of a drop, and when you go see it at the end of the ride, the members are holding signs with a letter spelling out, “WILL YOU MARRY” and Seokmin’s at the end pointing at himself and holding a ring.

Mingyu: Mingyu would plan the entire thing, and follow it step by step. He’d probably do some research on the top ten most romantic spots in Korea, and take you to one of them. He’d get down on one knee, reach into his pocket, and that’s when he realizes… he forgot the ring. (But you’d still say yes).

The8: Minghao would take you to China and propose to you at one of his favorite spots. Once the stars start appearing in the sky and the pearl-white moon is out, he’d get down on one knee and propose to you. He’d make it as romantic as possible.

Seungkwan: Seungkwan would propose to you creatively. He’d propose to you through a game of Hangman, with a fortune cookie, with a Kinder Surprise. He’d want it to be an unexpected and unforgettable proposal.

Vernon: Hansol would be traditional and propose to you during dinner at a nice restaurant. He’d probably use a classic move by asking one of the waiters to hide the ring in the cake, growing more and more nervous as dessert time approaches.

Dino: Chan would take you to the secret hideout only you two know about. He’d decorate the place beforehand with the help of the other members, making it as beautiful as possible. He’d message you to go there, and when you do, he’d be on one knee holding out the ring.

thank you for your request!! ^^

All My Idols Ch 1: First Class

Hi lovelies I’m sorry I don’t have a new chapter of Bad Girl or I Am An Alpha for you tonight so I’m going to add another one of my stories. This one has no smut! It’s a lot of fluff so be prepared!

Summary:  Twenty-two year old, Charlotte Quinn has decided, on a whim, to up and move to Korea. She has a good idea of the culture and knows the language well, and can’t deny her love of kpop. So when she runs into big bang at the airport on her way to her new home she doesn’t know what to do. Somehow she ends up befriending them and is lead into a whole new world of idols. She doesn’t know what to do when she sees all of her favorite idols in person and is even more thrown off when they want to befriend her as well. What is a girl to do but say yes?

I have never been so exhausted in my whole entire life. I sit down at the terminal, frustrated and starving, upset that all the little shops were closed or too expensive. After being stuck at the Chicago airport for almost 24 hours I have never been so excited to get into one of those uncomfortable economy seats. Glancing around, I’m surprised to be one of the few at the terminal, only about half of what it would take to fill one of those giant planes. One of the screens displaying the take off time and board time changes once again. Another hour delay, giving me three more hours to wait, having us leaving at 3 am. Fucking delightful.

I slouch lower in my chair before deciding to use the bathroom one more time incase the flight leaves earlier. Making sure I have all my belongings I head towards one of the many bathroom, picking the one farthest away just to waste time. To my surprise I see a group of security guards standing outside of the men’s bathroom. I try not to stare at I pass, quickly going into the women’s bathroom. After taking care of my business I leave the bathroom, mindlessly staring at my phone, when I bump into someone. Looking up to apologize, I’m surprised at the strangely familiar face staring back down at me with a solid cold expression.

Top. Big Bang’s Top. My bias of the group. He’s even more handsome in person with his strong jaw and perfect face. He is wearing what you expect from Top, a very nice suit, his black hair is perfectly styled.

Without a thought, I bow slightly, mumbling a small sorry in Korean. I can tell he is slightly surprised by me speaking to him in his own language. He tells me it’s no problem before scanning around us. I follow his eyes, noticing the group of security is now gone.

“They left me,” He puffs out.

“Where are you trying to go?” I ask. He looks back down at me, still surprised by my Korean.

“The flight to Korea.”

I give him a small smile, “I’m heading there too,” He just stares at me, “I can show you the way.” I start walking without waiting for his response, figuring if he wants to follow he will and if not, oh well. I’m a bit surprised seeing him here. I knew they were in America, I had just seen them not to long ago when they were in Newerk but to see him this close makes me nervous. But I’m much too scared of fan girling and scaring him away to show it. He stays a few steps behind me as I lead him through the almost empty wing. I can feel his eyes boring into the back of my head.

I’m surprised when he asks, “Do you know who I am?” I look at him over my shoulder, like I thought his eyes are glued on me.

“Yes,” I all I say as I turn back around.

“I feel like I’m at a disadvantage.” He walks faster, coming up next to me, “What is your name?” It’s my turn to stare, from what I now of Top he isn’t the friendliest person, just the quiet one that can randomly get weird with those he is comfortable with.  

“Charlie,” I say slowly, over pronouncing it.

“Charlie,” He repeats just as slowly, trying his best to say it right, making me smile. He gives me a soft smile in return. We walk basically across the whole entire airport talking about nothing really, he asks me random questions, as if he is filling out a profile for me. I tell him my hometown, age, blood type, where my new apartment is located, and he almost died laughing when I told him my height. We talk as if we are old friends, his friendliness and silly questions, ruining my idea of him, replacing it with something much better. Neither of us notice when we finally reach the gate.

“Hyung!” A familiar voice yells out, drawing us out of our bubble. We look to the man who yelled, Seungri. My smile drops as I step away from Top, not realizing how close we standing. The younger blonde man’s eyes move away from his hyung to me, nervously wrapping my arms around my body. “Who do we have here?” The younger steps closer to us to get a better look at me, prompting me to step back and Top to step in front of me.

“A friend.” Top deadpans, his playfulness gone. Seungri, like I had imagined, isn’t phased by the older’s coldness.

“Seungri-ah, leave him alone,” Another familiar voice calls from their spot amongst the seats. Peeking around Top I see the other three were looking away from their phones to stare at these two. They were siting in the last few rows of the gates seating, a few security guards re hanging around, along with their staff.

“Are you a fan?” Seungri asks me once he sees me peeking around Top.

All I can do is nod.

He smiles big at me, making me give a small smile back, “Really? Who is your bias?” I’m surprised when he steps around Top to be right in front of me. I nearly fall back as I try to step away, not that I don’t enjoy his closeness I’m just overwhelmed by it.

“Seungri,” Top growls as he tries to get in between Seungri and I.

“Just let him ask Hyung,” The voice from before, GD, says with amusement, his phone now put away, his complete attention on us. I realize that Taeyang and Daesung have done the same, small smiles on their faces.

“Well?” Seungri digs. When I don’t respond he frowns before looking to Top, “Does she not speak Korean?”

“She does, she probably just doesn’t want to talk to you,” Top teases. I laugh at that, making Seungri’s head snap back to me.

“You do speak Korean!”

I nod.

“Why won’t you answer me?” He pouts like a child.

“I don’t speak Korean that well,” I say quietly. That’s a bit of a lie, I actually know Korean very well, but my speaking isn’t the best. I have never felt embarrassed speaking it to people here but now with five Koreans staring at me I feel as if I’ll mess up and insult them in some way.

“You speak just fine,” Top says waving my fears away.

“Just say the name,” Seungri demands.

“Top-ssi.” I reply honestly. Seungri pouts, Top smiles at me, finally successfully moving the pouting blond away from me.

“Who is after him?” Seungri tries again.

Without any hesitation, “Taeyang-ssi.”

“After that?’


“I swear to god.” He whines.

Without him asking I say one more, “Daesung-ssi.” The others are laughing their ass off as Seungri goes back to his seat, grumbling something about how no one appreciates him.

“I like her,” GD says between laughs, “Come sit with us,” he waves me over to the empty spot next to him. I look over at Top, who waves through their bags on the floor to the spot over. I quickly follow sitting between the two very handsome men.

“What is your name?” Daesung asks, he is sitting across from me, his arms resting on his elbows as he leans closer to me.

“Charlie.” I respond shortly.

“Where are you from?”

“A couple states over.”

“Why are you going to Korea?”

“I’m actually moving there.”

He smiles, “That’s exciting! Do you have any friends there? Or is it for work purposes?”

“It’s more of a spur of the moment thing,” I answer nervously, Taeyang and Seungri, who have been looking at their phones, are now looking back at me. “I just kind of decided this within the last month.”

“Wow, why so sudden?” GD asks this time.

“I just felt like going? That sounds really irresponsible but I don’t have much holding me back here, so I just decided to pack up and go.”

“That brave, what make you pick Korea?” Taeyang asks, all their questions and attention is making me nervous. I look down at my hands.

“I’ve liked the idea of living in Korea for the couple years, since I was 17, and since I took the time to learn the language, I figured why not there?”

They all nod.

“So how long have you been a fan?” Seungri asks, coming out of his slump.

“Almost a year.”

“Were we your first?” He earns a punch from Taeyang for such a dirty phrased question.

I laugh, “Technically, yes. Though I listened to Super Junior first, you are the first group I learned.”

“Really? And are we your favorite right?” Seungri continued to ask.

“You are the group I have traveled the farthest for.”

“What does that mean?”

“I went to Newerk to see you in concert.”

They all smile at that, “You saw us in concert?”

“Yea! It was absolutely amazing! You guys did such a great job!” I say, letting my fan girl out a bit.

GD is grinning big at me, “Thank you so much, it’s great to hear that the fans had fun.”

We talk for the next two hours, I ask about their other concerts and the places they’ve been and things they’ve done while on tour. In turn, they ask me about myself, their interest in me surprising, not just me but from the stares of their crew, I can tell this isn’t normal. I’m thrown off even more when Top puts his arm around the back of my chair; his hand brushes my shoulder. An action noticed by everyone of the member but no one says anything, they just glance at it every now and than. When it’s time to board, it no surprise that they are in first class, they stand up when class 1 is called.

I give them my best smile and say, “It was nice to meet you.”

They all share a glance before Taeyang speaks up, “Come to first class with us.”

“There probably aren’t any spots,” I wave that idea away, “I can’t afford it anyway.”

Again they glance at each other, Top ends up grabbing my hand and leading to the entrance to the plane. We pass the woman at the desk, who just looks confused but once one of Big Bang’s people come up and talk to her the problem seems to be resolved. Top wordlessly leads me to one of the seats, placing me in the aisle seat, while he gets the window. The others join us with smiles on their faces, Taeyang sits on the other side of the aisle next to me, GD is next to him, while Seungri and Daesung are in front of us.

“Thank you,” I say, staring at my hands, a small blush crosses my tan cheeks.

“You’re welcome.” Top says as he pats my head like a child. The action is strange but comforting, making me smile. He relaxes in his seat, something he does with ease and elegance. I don’t even want to know how much I look like a mess as I try to get comfortable. An attendant walks by, handing out blankets and pillows which I eagerly accept. Making myself comfortable became much easier as I lean my chair back and curl up on my seat with my blanket, sleep sounds amazing, and an 11 hour flight is the perfect time to do so. I didn’t notice that the boys have been watching me with interest as I had made my little nest.

“Tired?” Taeyang asks as he also leans his seat back, making our eyes level, both of us on our sides.

“I’m exhausted. 30 hours with no sleep.” I yawn back as I nuzzle myself deeper into my pillow. He doesn’t respond when my eyes close but I can feel him staring at me, actually I can feel almost all of the staring at me. All except for Daesung, who is like me and actually wants to sleep.

I don’t sleep for long, only 4 hours, because of breakfast. It’s seven back home but I don’t know what time zone we are in at the moment. Top has woken me up to eat, I pick the rice and chicken, while Top take the omelet. We eat in silence, just enjoying each other’s company, at least for a little while before Seungri starts talking again. I can’t get myself to fall back asleep when they start talking, I just want to listen and talk to them forever. The flight goes by quickly, too quick if you ask me, and I’ve already shared my embarrassing stories with, and earned a few of theirs. The idea of not being able to talk to them like this again breaks my heart.

I can’t believe my ears when Top asks for my phone number, not in a hit on me way though, definitely a friendly way. With the other boys hounding me, I can’t say no to them, not that I want to. After typing my number in Top’s phone I feel nervous and can’t help but start giggling. When we land the boys leave first, actually giving me hugs as they go, Top being the last and the longest hug. Even though we are only friends, if that, we didn’t want the fans who were waiting to spot us together.

I find myself laughing at the last day and a half of my life, thinking that would be the high point for me. But little did I know, that it was just the beginning.

PS I love watching you guys binge read Good Girl and other stories, my friends keep asking why my phone is blowing up and I don’t know how to tell them it’s from a bunch of girls reading my dirty fan fiction. Please enjoy and let me know how you like it!

I feel so bad for TOP. He must be going through the worst time of his life right now. I wish I was there to give him a big hug. What's more sad is that this could affect his career badly in the future. I dont understand the big deal over weed probably because I live in a western country but I wish s.korea would become more forgiving and help him get through this.

Trust me his career isn’t going anywhere because the same thing happened to G-Dragon and look at him, other than that I agree, the whole thing is sad the way people are handling it , I think his mental health is more important than him lighting up a blunt or two. law or’s not that deep, people need to chill out.

Edit: And yes I know weed is illegal in South Korea but I also know people still do it. Just like it’s illegal in most states in the US but people still do it. Still No excuse for them to treat him like shit.

Eunsoo Lim’s interview after JWC 2017 from Figure Skating Life volume 10. Please do not use/repost my translations without my permission.

―Your junior debut and getting 4th place at your first Junior Worlds. How was it?
E: My goal at Junior Worlds was to skate in the last group for the free. I was able to achieve this goal, as well as show the judges a good performance, so I’m happy.

―The ladies are very high level.
E: I’m younger than the top junior ladies, so I learned many things from them. And, I was able to skate with wonderful skaters in the last group, which lead to more confidence.

―Next year the Olympics will be in Korea, but unfortunately you will be too young to participate.
E: I’m a little sad I can’t participate in the Olympics in my home country, but my goal is the Beijing Olympics, so I want to do my best performance there.

―What is the reason you started skated?
E: When I was 6 or 7 years old, I saw Yuna Kim skate, and I thought she was very sparkly and beautiful, so I started skating because I wanted to skate like her.

―Which other skaters do you admire?
E: I admire Ashley Wagner and Kaetlyn Osmond.

―What are your best assets?
E: My spins and jumps.

―Do you do your makeup yourself? It’s very good.
E: Yes, I do it myself (laughs).

i don't care if ikon is now considered a flop group, but what i fear is that they will make more public friendly songs from now on bc this concept flopped. ikon is special because they do music not to please the public but to make themselves satisfied and happy. there are already news circulating around the web saying hanbin's songs are awful and poor quality (srly fuck them). i hope yg won't get angry at my boy and send them to the dungeon again.

ahh I have so many things to say but I will keep it to minimal :)

  1. iKON are the opposite of a flop group, I mean they are in the middle of dome tour right now and don’t forget the amount of cash they’re bringing in the company.
  2. Hanbin knows how to make songs to top charts in Korea, he already established himself multiple times.
  3. The boys are doing what they love and Hanbin already knew that Blingx2 will be low in charts and honestly, he doesn’t care. So we shouldn’t either.
  4. iKON told us that there’s gonna be 10 songs in total, with blingx2 as one the most hardcore of them, which I’m sure means in the rest 8 songs the boys already made there’s at least one song that will be public friendly, so don’t be suprised when it happens.
  5. I’m pretty sure the people that are saying awful things about the boys right now will be sucking ikon’s dicks again once they go back on top5 at charts

Now, I will stop there bc I’m beginning to lose my chill and that’s no-no.

An advice to all of you, stop hanging on twitter too much and unfollow ppl that seem to like drama and charts more than the artists themselves. Believe in our leader. Believe in iKON. Be proud and happy for them.


So I was bored recently and I was watching videos with tips on how to survive kpop concerts, and they were all missing out on some stuff that I consider crucial. This survival guide will include tips on buying tickets, outfit advice and what you should expect at a kpop concert!

what makes me sad about the whole scandal surrounding top is that it supports this feeling I had about him for a few years now - that he is actually a sad man deep inside. now, I personally don’t really judge him for smoking weed. there are far worse things he coud’ve consumed imo. nevertheless it IS a crime in korea and I’m sure he is aware of that. I don’t quite understand what made him do this. but it gives me this weird feeling that he is just feeling lost or even lonely. someone who had reached all his dreams, seen it all, done it all and who just doesn’t care anymore. that’s why I think he’s drinking and smoking so much, too. 
I could totally see too much in this. maybe he just acted impulsively. everyone makes mistakes. but just thinking about this breaks my heart. 

Please wake up soon TOP

I haven’t posted much about his scandal, but i hope you know money and fame doesn’t cure mental illness. Top doesn’t deserve all the hate he is getting at all. Yes, he smoked marijuana, got caught, and is penalized for it. Especially since he is in the military such actions are much harsher than regular civilization. And its similar in most militaries, maybe the consequence isnt as harsh as this. But we do know marijuana is illegal is South Korea, people will react differently than in America when is comes to marijuana.
What Top did was human, what I’ve said before in another post, I’ll say it again, no idol deserves any hate for doing things most regular people do. What i mean by that is stuff, like sex, drugs, dating, or coming out, and much more. Just because they are idols, idk why it gives you the impression that they aren’t doing things what maybe you or your friends are doing. Top was already sensitive before he went into the military as GD said in radio star that he had been crying almost every day before he went into the military, and giving him all this hate for doing things regular people do would just push him to the edge. I pray that Top wakes up soon and I pray his family is okay as well.
