i am new to ifnt and rly dont wanna make anyone mad but i don't see the big deal abt woohyun. yes he is hot and can sing but why does every1 love him so much? i dont mean it in a bad way jst that i dont see how he is more popular than others. also i dont see how his voice is so different to other kpop singers? but then again i am new so maybe i dont kno wht i am talking about. pls help me to understand more?

You caught me at the absolute pinnacle of my Woohyun feels, which happens every year around his birthday. And therefore (with a little help from my friends) I have constructed this little list of reasons why Woohyun is absolutely deserving of the amount of love he receives from Inspirits and why it’s kinda hard not to love him, even if he isn’t your favourite member…

1. WOOHYUN’S LIVE VOCALS

Woohyun is known for having what many call a ‘power-house’ vocal. You can always rely on him to hit those incredible high notes in INFINITE songs. He’s known for being able to bellow out his lines; his voice is strong, loud and instantly recognisable. But he also pours a lot of emotion into his vocals, every note dripping with it. His solo album Write.. and his subsequent appearances on Immortal Songs 2 showcased another side to his vocals too; a softer side, gentle, quieter but without lacking that trademark emotion in his voice. It really proved he’s a versatile vocalist, and not just there to yell at the top of his lungs (but it’s still incredible when he does). Here is Woohyun performing on Immortal Songs 2. This appearance earned him the highest score for an idol on the show at that point. 

He is (in my opinion) one of the best live singers in kpop at the moment. I can’t think of many people who could hold a candle to him, really. Yet he is still improving and working on his voice; he still admits he has far to go. 

2. WOOHYUN’S FAN SERVICE / HIS LOVE FOR FANS

Woohyun is known for being the ‘fan idiot’ in INFINITE. He’s got a different heart for every occasion and is usually credited with popularising the ‘finger heart’ that everyone uses nowadays. In 2012 he came 3rd in Weekly Idol’s Fan Service poll (as voted by idols), and the video shows some good examples of him showering Inspirits with love. He consistently refers to fans as his ‘girlfriends’, to the point his twitter bio even says it (팬=여친 fan=girlfriend). But his love for Inspirits runs deeper than superficial hearts and displays of cuteness. INFINITE and Inspirits have had a close relationship since debut, and it has continued on to this day. During One Great Step, INFINITE’s first world tour in 2013/14, Woohyun personally went out to buy roses and small rings to present to fans at their shows, spending his own money. He wrote and composed the song ‘함께 (Together)’ during OGS, and dedicated it to Inspirits, saying it was about fans (see the lyrics here). 

At Dream Concert in 2016, Woohyun performed as a solo artist for the first time, and even other fandoms began to feel jealous at the amount of attention he gave to Inspirits. [Even more reactions here] He sang just for them, never taking his eyes off their section of the crowd and taking out his earpiece to listen to them singing along. Okay, so later all of INFINITE roasted Inspirits for not being able to sing well, but at least Woohyun then tried to explain how to sing properly.

It should be noted too, that after this performance, Woohyun and INFINITE gained a lot of new fans who were impressed by him. 

3. WOOHYUN’S PASSION FOR SINGING / MAKING MUSIC

As I mentioned above, Woohyun wrote and composed ‘함께 (Together)’ for INFINITE while they were taking part in their first world tour. During their movie, Grow, which showed the behind the scenes of OGS, you see Woohyun jumping up in the middle of eating to go and compose. 

He was excited about this song and wanted to share it with the rest of INFINITE once he was finished, asking them to contribute to the lyric writing too. Then his solo album Write.. was released in 2016 with 3/6 tracks having Woohyun’s direct involvement: ‘향기 (Scent/Nostalgia)’ which was entirely written and composed by Woohyun, and ‘Gravity’ and ‘Everyday’ which Woohyun co-wrote and composed [source]. You could tell he had worked extremely hard on these songs, and could tell how proud he was of them when he spoke about them in interviews. Whenever Woohyun takes the stage, you know that the energy and enthusiasm he exudes isn’t just an act… He truly loves singing, is passionate about performing and wants to share his talent with the world. For example, look how stupidly in his element he is performing Everyday in Singapore during INFINITE’s second world tour ( © Honey Tree ) :

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE:

Those were just three main points focused on Woohyun as a singer, performer and idol. There are so many other sides to Woohyun too, and so many reasons to love him. 

  • He loves cooking, and his instagram is full of videos of him making food
  • His relationships with the other INFINITE members are really sweet. Just one recent example would be: even when everyone was teasing Sungjong and being kinda mean (including Woohyun), he did then reassure him that there would be plenty of INFINITE schedules soon and that he needn’t worry. He’s also super affectionate with the others, and you’ll often find him touching them or correcting their hair/touching their face/leaning on them.
  • Actor Woohyun!!! He’s been in multiple dramas, but my personal favourite is Hi School Love On, where he played Shin Woohyun… Please watch it if you haven’t already, it’s so good (and it’s all available on KBSWorld’s youtube channel with subs, here)!
  • His friendships with other 91 line celebrities, especially SHINee’s Key with whom he debuted as the special sub-unit ToHeart in 2014
  • Like you mentioned, he is ridiculously good-looking and is known for not having had any surgery - that nose and that jawline are aaaaallll natural, ladies ~~ 
  • He loves football and plays for FC Men (FC 멘), an all-star team affiliated with the Suwon Bluewings alongside other celebrities. 

My closing statement is this: usually when you stan a group you’ll have a favourite member, one you look at more than the others, one you might pay a little more attention to during MVs or performances or shows. But then often (and in most cases when it comes to my Inspirit friends), you end up loving them all. Your bias might even change (maybe even many times). You’ll find it hard to stick solely to one member, especially when the rest of the group are so damn lovable. Soon enough, you realise you’re OT7 biased and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Do yourself a solid and give Woohyun a chance. I’m sure you’ll see why everyone likes him so much in no time.

  • genuinely cares for all his subjects
  • when asked which princess he thinks is the prettiest from all the kingdom he simply replies “all”
  • ((LIKE SUCH A GENTLEMEN BUT A LITTLE SHIT AT THE SAME TIME))
  • never gets romantically involved for the simple fact of her(his wife or gf) getting hurt or sick or dying and jinwoo hurting just as much as her
  • all the princesses (since he refuses to get married) try to get him as a best friend AND SOME EVEN STILL PERSIST IN TRYING TO DATE HIM
  • this results in him being around ladies A LOT (but never does he give in)
  • extremely loyal
  • never breaks promises
  • treats the fellow Astro princes like they’re his real family
  • when a war almost broke out between myungjun and dongmin, jinwoo was a big part in handling that… although he didn’t know who this very suspicious girl that caused it was……
  • always complimenting you when you pass by him in the corridors
  • “y/n!!!”
  • “yes?”
  • “you look very pretty today :}” (LIKE YOU LITTLE SHIT HOW AM I NOT SUPPOSED TO FALL FOR YOU)
  • very lenient when it comes to rules around the castle
  • he always takes weekly polls to ask his subjects how he’s doing as a prince so he doesn’t let people down or leave unfulfilled wishes
  • very responsible
  • AS IN WHEN MYUNGJUN DECIDES TO DRINK TOO MUCH HE ALWAYS BRINGS HIM BACK TO HIS CASTLE AND LETS HIM STAY THERE OVERNIGHT…
  • every king wants their daughter to marry him no matter how far away their kingdom may be
  • but like i mentioned, he always kindly declines
  • in addition to that, every king wants their son to be like jinwoo
  • legend has it one time when jinwoo was walking through the corridors to go to a meeting, one of the maids dropped a plate of dishes and jinwoo didn’t yell at her, but instead, helped her clean it up
  • because of this, people started to take note of his good deeds
  • legend also has it that one time, some of jinwoo’s “fans” sent around a poll rating the 6 princes in order of who’s the best looking, and of course, jinwoo ranked first (this may have been rigged though, who knows…..)
  • always wakes up early to see the sun rise and help the maids get a start on breakfast
  • when done with all that, he (of course) goes to his regular duties… paying checks, looking at foreign affairs, checking in on the fellow princes….
  • when venturing out of the castle, (which of course he does regularly so he can see how his subjects are doing) he always makes an effort to make sure he’s indistinguishable
  • this is more than likely because at times, he just wants people to treat him like a normal person instead of the “sweet prince
  • it’s always been said that jinwoo looks up to this mysterious guy named “Sir Zico”, although, no one has really ever seen him… very mysterious..
  • instead of having the servants go out and fetch groceries, jinwoo always buys groceries when he’s out of the castle
  • of course his father always yells at him, stressing how important it is he stays in the castle and blah blah blah
  • his father always pressures him as well to get married or the throne will be given to a cousin
  • jinwoo doesn’t care though; even with the prettiest princesses that his father hands to him…
  • him always giving money to those that need it; which of course causes more conflict between him and his father.. (LIKE JUST LET THIS BOY LIVE DAMN)
  • acts like the father among all of the princes
  • 24/7 chivalry
  • LIKE HONESTLY CHIVALRY ALL THE TIME
  • when a “fan” builds up enough courage to go and talk to him he always stares in her eyes and listens very intently
  • bringing me to another point, HE ALWAYS LISTENS SO SO CLOSELY WHEN TALKING TO YOU
  • his smile is just ridiculously cute
  • “so i was talking to prince moonbin the other day and–” *jinwoo smiles* *about to faint*
  • the prince hyungs always urging jinwoo to go out and date (can you tell he gets a lot of social pressure to date and get married)
  • likes to write in his free time
  • his writing being REALLY deep and philosophical
  • he’s usually spending time with his young son sanha (not really his son but everyone in the castle thinks this)
  • which is where another rumor starts……………. the reason jinwoo won’t get married is because his son sanha is his actual son and his mother is lost and he’s waiting for her?! (this was a fan theory…. or so i heard)
  • always giving sanha tips on how to be a prince
  • honestly just raising sanha like his own (it’s absolutely adorable)
  • constantly lighting up the mood wITH TRYING TO BE FUNNY EVEN IF WHAT HE’S SAYING IS NOT FUNNY
  • sanha always asking himself why does jinwoo always try to be funny (smh)
  • jinwoo getting little to no sleep because he’s always working on something; whether it be his prince duties or writing
  • among everything else, he always sticks to his morals being the sweet and cute prince he is (∪ ◡ ∪)

anonymous asked:

May I ask what makes Sanji a popular character? Because it seems he is actually not that popular of a popular character, compared to Luffy, Law, Zoro, Nami and many more, and among the strawhats he is said to be the least popular. So, is there a reason for his popularity?

I’m not sure if I’m the right person to answer this question as I have a pretty strong bias towards considering Sanji an extremely favorable character.  He’s been my favorite OP character since I first clapped eyes on him in the anime.  Hell, I subscribed to Shonen Jump as soon as Oda-sensei made the announcement that it was going to be the Year of Sanji.  And I think about Sanji a lot.  A LOT, and then I post it all on this tumblog.

Needless to say, this is a very subjective topic.

The most objective and quantifiable way for me to demonstrate Sanji’s actual popularity are the fan polls run by Weekly Shonen Jump.  As you can see, Sanji has consistently ranked highly as one of the most popular characters in One Piece, and always the third most popular Strawhat (behind Luffy and Zoro):

It’s interesting to note that Sanji dropped one place in the fifth fan poll to fourth.  It’s because the LawLu is so very strong Law took the second spot in the poll, meaning that he also dethroned Zoro from the number two slot (for the first time).

This is pretty significant considering, at the time of publication of the most recent popularity poll, Sanji had been absent from the manga for over a year.  (Poll publication date was December 22, 2014; Sanji’s last appearance in the manga was December 9, 2013.)  He took the smallest hit for his absence: Nami dropped two spots, Chopper lost three spots, and poor Brook lost ten.

Long story short, I (personally) love that Sanji’s the monstrously strong one that flies under the radar – intelligent, cool, an excellent tactician.  And most importantly, nurturing, gentle and kind at heart.  I respect that many people may not necessarily agree, and that’s okay – there’s plenty of wonderfully likeable characters in One Piece; there’s a favorite out there for everyone.

Onew knew the leader of VIXX, N, through KTR when he was filling in as DJ. After that, during an interview, Jinki answered VIXX as the group that works the hardest. during their comeback, Jinki also went to watch their rehearsal. During Weekly Idol's poll on "Who triggers the protective nature of their Dongsaengs", N voted for Onew, and even drew a heart. Looks like they have good relations.

Your Handy Grotesque Tapestry FAQs

Did you know we have a Periscope show, #LiterallyAnything, every Tuesday at noon Pacific Time?

This week we talked about this grotesque tapestry with co-host, curator Charissa Bremer-David, and got so many questions we didn’t have time to answer them all. Here are your top questions from this week’s #LiterallyAnything in one handy spot:

What is this? 
A large tapestry made of wool and silk titled The Offering to Pan. It’s one of four from the Grotesques tapestry series.

What’s going on?
Three bacchantes are making an offering to a classic sculpture of Pan. One attendant is draping the sculpture with garland, and the other two are dancing with tambourines.

What is it based on?
The sculpture, the female attendants, and the goat were all inspired by Nicolas Poussin’s The Triumph of Pan from 1636.

Okay. Who is Pan?
The ancient god of shepherds, pastures, goats, and sheep.

What is a “bacchante”? 
All of the attendants in the tapestry are know as bacchantes. A bacchante is a follower of Pan, the gods of shepherds and goats, and Bacchus, the god of vineyards and wine. They often appear in scenes of pastoral life.

What is a “grotesque”? 
The art term grotesque derives from the word grotto, an underground cave sometimes found in nature. It’s used in art history to describe artworks like this, which feature fanciful, fantastic figures and foliage (fffff).

Who is that strange man at the bottom?
This intense reclining figure is dressed as an ancient Roman figure, but he wears a blonde Mohawk and hanging mustache. All of these characteristics combined are meant to represent that he is ancient, from a faraway land.

What kind of bird is that at the center? What is it carrying? 
This eagle and composition are borrowed from Pieter Boel’s Double Study of Eagles. Eagles commonly represented the god Jupiter. The eagle is holding an olive or a laurel branch, which represented victory.

Were these rich colors common for tapestries?
The colors used were fairly common, but they are preserved particularly vividly in this work. Purple is a rare survivor in tapestries of this age.

What are the dimensions? 
322.6 x 302.3 cm (127 x 119 in.).

When was this created? 
About 1690 to 1730.

Did the artist do the weaving himself? 
No! This tapestry was produced by the Beauvais Manufactory in France, and it was based on a design by Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer. Guy-Louis Vernansal assisted Monnoyer with the border design.

When can I watch #LiterallyAnything?
#LiterallyAnything broadcasts every Tuesday at 12 noon Pacific Time at periscope.tv/thegetty. Follow @thegetty on Twitter for updates and weekly polls. You can catch the replay of this episode here.
