well all of the music i like does

  • “barbie as the princess and the pauper” has the most solid storyline, as well as being the most well-remembered and well-loved of the barbie movies of the 2000s. the characters are engaging, and the romances are surprisingly solid. (even if annelise and erika were clearly gay for each other, their love interests still had likable personalities and good dynamics with the girls.) the music has also held up incredibly well, albeit with a lot of cheese.
  • “barbie as the island princess” has a cliche but entertaining storyline, but has the strongest music overall. the side characters are also remarkably well-done, and it avoids falling into the trap of the boyfriend’s intial fiancee being evil – luciana and ro become friends instead. it also has some genuinely emotional moments.
  • “barbie in the nutcracker” has probably the strongest script overall, as well as tim curry. the cgi is shit nowadays but it was good for the time, and the ballet sequences are still very fun.
  • “barbie in swan lake,” although not as well-remembered, is a solid family movie, with beautiful music and ballet sequences, as well as a really cool villain. its storyline isn’t the best, but it’s a solid 90 minutes of fun.
  • “the barbie diaries” was a huge oddball in the canon, but in my opinion, it’s underrated. yes it’s probably the stupidest and the most predictable, but it has songs written by kesha (no, seriously, look it up), and it’s an admirable attempt at something different.
  • “barbie as rapunzel” ABSOLUTELY INFLUENCED “TANGLED” AND YOU CAN’T CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE. features a surprisingly clever twist at the climax, as well as a creepy villain, and it’s a different take than most rapunzel stories.
  • “barbie and the magic of pegasus” is the first original barbie movie, which warrants applause on its own. the story is fun, and it’s nice to have a love interest with a proper Tragic Backstory
  • “barbie and the diamond castle” features some of the most fun side characters, as well as some pretty good music. should’ve been gay, though.
  • “barbie in the christmas carol” deserves credit just for casting BARBIE as SCROOGE. did not see that coming at ALL.
  • “barbie and the 12 dancing princess” is kind of underappreciated. admittedly it’s not as memorable, but it does a good job adapting a lesser-known fairytale.
  • the fairytopia/mariposa movies are their own thing and need their own post, which i’m not gonna do because i barely remember them. i do remember i really liked the first mariposa movie as a kid, tho.

…these are thoughts i actually dwell on and type out, apparently

How To Come Out in A Conservative Society

An History Lesson on Ellen DeGeneres and Theories about BTS

First, let me start off by saying that I know this is going to piss off some people. Your precious boys can’t have a bad rumor spread about them, can they? 

Well, fun fact: These rumors about idols have gone on for years, and they still have jobs. The rumors aren’t the problem, because when it comes to LGBT rumors, unlike straight rumors or controversies, Korea readily just accepts them as not possible and so someone can be rumored gay and nothing come from it, unless it was ever confirmed, so again, the rumor isn’t the problem. The lack of acceptance if said rumors are confirmed is the problem, because idols can only work if a company feels they will be able to make money. It is simple economics. If fans are not willing to accept and openly express acceptance, how can we expect a society to? How can we expect companies to feel that their artists have a market? Now I understand Korea has a thing about censorship despite fan reaction. This is a part of the problem, and it is a complicated political setting in which I do not understand and therefore cannot determine the ultimate solution. 

All I can say is this:

Guys, America was not always as accepting as it is now. America did used to be like Korea, and none of the laws for the LGBT were in place. What changed? The people. If you, as fans, are so set on protecting idols that you inherently promote the idea that being LGBT is an issue, even if you don’t mean it that way, you are being problematic to the cause. Discussing it openly allows idols and even companies to see the acceptance among fans, and fans educating other fans about it allows the societies to see the change in the people. You have the power but when you so adamantly push to censor the discussion, you give the power to those who wish to not acknowledge the LGBT. Talking is good, and could really help an LGBT idol feel better about themselves if they are LGBT.

NOW ONTO THE TOPIC OF DISCUSSION!

So, BTS wants to visit Ellen. This is very interesting to me, as I have always felt a slight connection of their stories. I have a theory, but you have to actually hear me out to try and understand that this is something legitimate and not just some delusion of grandeur. 

First, how many of you actually know the history behind Ellen?

Well, I am going to assume that a lot of you are younger than me. BTS is younger than me lol. So, in the 90s, Ellen DeGeneres was an American television sweetheart. People loved her. American families watched her all the time. She was really popular. She had her show Ellen, which if you didn’t know, was not the talk show she has now. It was an actual sitcom where she played a character named Ellen. She boldly made the choice ON THE SHOW to have the character come out as a lesbian, and the next day on a talk show, she came out herself.

It was a bold move in the 90′s when LGBT rights were in the shitter. Still, if you look back, she actually was quite clever and strategic. She played the every woman and that’s why families loved her, but you will see hints of her sexuality. She used her medium and talent to subconsciously familiarize her audience with the idea of her being LGBT. It took a lot of work, and trust me, her coming out was not ENTIRELY smooth, but it went quite well. She was one of the few at the time to come out and have her career thrive after. 

She after that managed to have the highest viewed day time talk show that still runs today, a role in one of the most beloved children’s films, Finding Nemo. In fact, a open lesbian having a role like Dory in a children’s film at all was a huge deal. She managed to do all of this and land a deal with JC Penney and Covergirl, and her net worth is 350 million. She even for over a decade remained with her wife Portia, all while her career grew. Sure, along the way there were idiots who condemned her, but most of America loved Ellen.

All from a woman who wore short hair, gender non-conforming fashion, and openly lived as a lesbian in the 90′s. She may not be too shocking to you guys, but she did “look like a lesbian” in what people would have defined (don’t take this as my belief).

How? 

Just being someone everyone can connect to! She was happy and funny and wanted the world to laugh! She showed that LGBT people are just like everyone else. They wanted their rights, and that was all. This is a discussion for an entirely different subject, but I as an LGBT can tell you that while I think people should be accepted and able allowed to behave in the manner they see fit as long as it harms no one, there is value in LGBT who are not defined by the stereotypical “LGBT” behavior and are simply just day by day people who live just like you. Ellen did not over-exaggerate her sexuality’s stereotypical behavior. There is nothing wrong with being flamboyant, but sometimes sadly, the first step to acceptance is to be able to empathize and she was the one to be able to connect to easier, and with time, starting with people like her being accepted, times changed, and now we are seeing acceptances for all forms. It isn’t perfect, and it probably never will be, but it is there. She pushed boundaries, but she did so strategically and it worked for her.

NOW LOL WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH BTS?

Well, if you are familiar with their music, behavior, ethical principles, and the HYYH, then you might see where I am going with this.

Firstly, I would be here for hours if I mentioned all the various moments were they referenced something LGBT or did something related to. There is the Japanese Jungkook fanboy, Glam’s Party XXO, Namjoon’s words about the issue, Yoongi and his fuckery, Troye Sivan ultimate stanning, ‘I Know’ etc, but let me continue with my point.

I feel that BTS are familiarizing their fans with the idea of LGBT within idols. Idols have always had fanservice, and idols have always had ones who professed acceptance. There have even been idols that have hinted towards ideas of LGBT in their art (like Monsta X’s All In) but if ARMYS are correct about the HYYH, there may actually be the first LGBT narrative involving idols (KWill’s Please Don’t featured an LGBT plotline but I am talking about the idol themselves being involved). 

There have been hints that Yoongi and Jungkook within the narrative have a romantic plot. The HYYH Notes give this idea some light. Granted, we could be incorrect, but it does seem to be the case with the narrative text. We will have to see in the future where they take it.The Love Yourself highlights also hint at this. Then, Namjoon’s insistence on Love Yourself: Her being gender neutral. I think this is for a specific purpose as well.

Then there was the photoshoot with Jimin and Jungkook on the same rainbow unicorn float that was used at Korean Pride that same summer. I do not find this coincidental at all. There is a message, and I find that they are trying to send it in a palatable way for fans, which sadly shouldn’t have to happen, but it is the society we live in. There is the fact that they covered a song without changing pronouns, which would be ignored had it not been for the recent Namjoon comments and the fact that the BigHit survey featured more than the two genders. I think they recognize all of this. I think that this is all to familiarize fans with directly associating idol with LGBT. 

They are pushing boundaries, but doing so strategically.

Now, this next part might split some people, because it involves two members together, and I know people get pissy but hear me out. Please note that while you may think I am wrong, if you believe there are other LGBT members, the former discussion still applies.

I think the recent events involving Jungkook and Jimin are not fanservice. They are real events that are used by the two for fans. Let me explain: If they are together, they are spending time together, publicly interacting, and expressing themselves more. They are doing this because they love each other, but this is shown for fans for the purpose I believe of getting fans used to the idea, so that if they did eventually come out, it would not be such a shock. Much like Ellen did. I could be entirely wrong, but I think every moment is genuine and they are just showing it to people they care about to show their love. It can be a gift to fans, but that does not make it fanservice. 

As, I said, take the last two paragraphs away, and my point is still relevant, but I do believe they are utilizing this as a chance for members to come out who would not feel comfortable doing so before. I find at this point in time, the most likely is Jimin and Jungkook.

For sure, Jungkook. I always believed him to be some form of LGBT.

NOW, what does any of this mean? What does the future hold?

Well…

You got me.

If I am correct, and I believe I am, this means that BigHit and BTS will eventually tackle the idea of LGBT head on. I think an issue is with the Korea Unicef program, as it is 2 years long, and Yoongi decided not to get a tattoo to be able to do it, so what makes us think being LGBT wouldn’t be an issue, BUT who knows? They may utilize the fact that they are the current most successful Korean idol artist on a national and worldwide scale to see what can happen. Not changing the language they sing in reaches to their intent for change and being a voice for Korean youth, and utilizing the international fame allows them to bridge the youth they are reaching to with the liberalism of Western media.

The thing is in order to not kill their careers, they have to be big enough to survive it. That is why the first part of my essay is so important. Fans are the key. Our support and votes, and yes, our money, is the key to them being big enough that they are untouchable. That might not ever truly happen but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try. If we can have an idol who is LGBT that is as big as them, that can invoke change…

JUST LIKE ELLEN. It takes time. Things didn’t change immediately after her, but damn if life didn’t get more and more progressive. I also credit so many others for that, but this is about them.

Please, take into consideration that I put a lot of thought into this before you brush me off, BUT ultimately this is my opinion. Good Day.

  • what girls say: I'm fine
  • what they're really thinking: I am deeply concerned about the mental health and overall well being of Hayley Williams. The Aint It Fun era was filled with bright, optimistic tones and it really sounded like she was discovering who she was and how to really live her life. However, the After Laughter era is stuffed to the brim with undertones of anxiety, depression, and self loathing; all masked by the sugar sweet sounds of percussion and major keys. Hayley Williams has discussed such topics in Paramore's music before, but not to this extent. Is she okay? Does she need a hug? Oh my god I wanna give her a hug. Oh my go
The hardest person to come out to, for me, was myself. When I first started to realise that I might be gay, I had to ask myself all of these questions, these really, really terrifying questions. You know, am I ever going to find someone? Am I ever gonna be able to have a family? If there is a God, does that God hate me? If there is a heaven, am I ever gonna make it to heaven? And those were all really, really scary questions for a 14-year-old. And then, throughout the process, I started to kinda build this self-confidence and this self-worth and I realised I am gay. Eventually I got to the point where I was like “okay well, if there is a heaven but I can’t be myself up there, then maybe I don’t want heaven.

Take it easy, guys, gals and nonbinary pals

I know it’s not a competition but niall being the most followed member of 1d is so hot, my man really earned his place in the music industry. Especially when you know he we like the last one direction member to reach a million followers. And what’s best about it is that he’s remained himself. He’s just working hard but he enjoys every bit of it. He’s so passionate and only tries to beat his own record. He’s so grateful for it all and never misses a chance to thank everyone. Do you know many artists who send personal letters to his fans, letters they actually took the time to write themselves? well niall does it. Another thing I love about him is the fact that he always promotes artists he loves to listen to. He always tweets them to tell them how he likes their new music. He knows how lucky he is and he’s always willing to help a friend. He knows what he wants to do and he’s doing it perfectly. He was born to do this.

               -If he invites you to lunch and you don’t like the restaurant, he’ll cancel his reservations and find a new place immediately

               -AND HE DOES EVERYTHING HIMSELF. Not once does he ask Jaehee or another employee of his to set up plans or grab something for you

               -HE EVEN SINGS THE LITTLE MERMAID SONG “KISS THE GIRL”(or he changes the lyrics to boy, depending) TO GET THE POINT ACROSS BUT ALL YOU DO IS JUMP IN ON HIS MUSICAL NUMBER. One day MC, one day.

               -How the hell can you not tell that this giraffe loves you??

               -Always taking beautiful photos of you! Well…almost always

               -His favourite photo album is full of pictures of you being goofy, and packed which terrible candid’s of you, but he lOVES THEM SO MUCH MC LOOK AT HOW AMAZING YOU ARE

               -Always invites you over to just hang out and play some games, watch some movies, or sometimes just to nap

               -Even asks you to teach him how to cook/bake, so he can spend a lot more time with you!

               -Sometimes you give him this dazzling smile that just makes his heart flutter and he can’t even look at you

               -You also like to hug him and he practically passes out every time. It scares you a little bit because you can’t figure out why?? Is he okay??? Are you dead??

               -But he steps out of his comfort zone and hugs you back?? You’re so happy and you absolutely love it! You think that maybe he’s finally becoming more social! You have no idea that he only hugs you because??? It’s you

               -Please just admit you like this man so he can get comfortable MC, he’s too awkward to ask you out himself

My Boys

Got an idea in the middle of class today, been waiting all day to have a chance to actually write it. This is probably gonna be shit, but oh well. 
PLEASE REQUEST! THANKS

He’s crying.

Again. 

You groan and push your face further into your pillow. 

Now he’s screaming. 

“Shawn.” You push his shoulder. He groans and rolls away from you. “Shawn!” You say again, shaking his arm. 

“What?” He mumbles.

“Get your son.” You slur, so fucking tired.

“I don’t hear, fuck!” He groans. “Does the boy ever sleep.” He turns back towards you. 

“No, and he got his Daddies lungs. Go get him.” You say sighing. 

Sleep, man it’s a great thing, when you get it. But ever since you had your mini Shawn, it has ran away from you. That kid could cry all night, so saying that he got Shawn’s lungs isn’t a lie. Man he could scream. 

Shawn huffs and rolls out of bed. 

“Dude, calm down.” You hear Shawn say as he walks to the nursery. “You are gonna keep Mommy up all night aren’t you.” He says in his baby voice. 

Shawn is a great father, has been since the day he found out he was gonna be one. This is baby number two for you guys but little Raul really doesn’t like being away from you and Shawn. 

Taylor, he slept threw the night from the get go. He was such a quiet baby, still is now as a toddler. But Raul, he is gonna be so much like his Dad. Loud and goofy. 

“Shhh, Raul.” Shawn whispers walking back into your room. 

You roll over and see him holding the tiny baby to his big frame. Shawn’s a giant, you already new that. But watching him hold a two month old made him look huge, compared to the young child. 

“Raul, what’s the matter buddy.” You sigh sitting up, leaning against the head board.

“I don’t know, I changed his diaper and tried to feed him.” Shawn yawned sitting next to you. He hands you Raul leaning his head on your shoulder. You sigh as you hear two little feet running towards your door. 

“Mommy, I can’t sleep.” Taylor says from the door. 

Shawn waves him over and Taylor smiles. 

2:47 am 

“I’m so tired.” You whine to Shawn. He kisses your bare shoulder and looks at you. 

“I know Baby, me too.” He blinks slowly up at you. 

“Daddy can we cuddle?” Taylor asks. 

“Why don’t we all cuddle.” Shawn whispers. “You get to lay with Mommy while I hold Raul.” Shawn shrugs at you. You nod and hand him Raul, now that he is no longer crying. 

“Tay, I’ll be right back okay. Get comfy.” You weakly smile getting up. 

“Hey.” Shawn whispers, catching your hand. 

“What?”

“Where are you going?” He asks with wide eyes.

“Bathroom, and then make a bottle so it’s ready when he’s hungry.” You say yawning. “Might as well since I’m up.”

“Let me do it, you’re tired.”

“You are a little busy.” You smirk at him as Taylor snuggles up to his Dad, closing his eyes. Shawn looks at his sons, smiling wide. 

“You’re right.” He sleepily smiles at you. You head to the bathroom. 

*

You walk back into the bedroom when you finish making a bottle. 

Shawn, on his back. 

Raul, laying on his stomach, on Shawn’s chest.

Taylor, on his side, holding on to Shawn’s arm like its a stuffed animal. 

You slowly and carefully crawl back into bed, Shawn stirring as the bed dips. 

“Hey Beautiful.” He grins. 

“Hey.” You whisper. You kiss Raul’s head lightly. Then kiss Taylor’s. 

“Do I get a kiss?” Shawn asks smirking. You roll your eyes.

“Gotta save best for last right?” You grin at him, that makes him smile wide. 

“C’here.” He says leaning up to you. You lean down and kiss him lightly. 

“My boys, gotta love them.” You sigh laying down. Shawn takes a hold of your hand and holds it as you get all comfy. 

“I love you Babe.” He whispers before drifting off to sleep. 

*

“Mommy.” You stir as someone shakes your shoulder. “Mommy, it’s time for breakfast.” 

You roll over and meet the brown eyes of your son. You smile and sigh in content.

“Morning Tay.” You smile.

“Morning Mommy!” He smiles as you wake up. 

“Where’s Daddy?” You ask as you notice Shawn isn’t next to you. 

“It’s time for breakfast.” Taylor says grabbing your hand and trying to pull you with him. You get up and follow him, grabbing Shawn’s flannel along the way. 

You are just pulling it on as you enter the kitchen. 

“What’s all this?” You ask as you see the table set, and Shawn standing at the stove. 

“You’re up.” He smiles as he turns. 

“Breakfast!” Taylor calls, jumping up and down. 

“Go take a seat bud.” Shawn smiles at his son. 

“Mommy come on!” Taylor says taking your hand. 

You look at Shawn and see that he’s staring at you, casually looking up and down. 

“Fuck.” He mumbles quietly so little ears don’t hear him. 

You look at yourself, jogger shorts, cami with his flannel, your hair that was curled yesterday now a crazy mane on your head.

“What?” You quirk a brow, picking Taylor up and resting him on your hip.

“You just look really good in my flannel.” He shakes his head.

“Yeah, good enough to get a good morning kiss?” You tease, smirking at him. 

He turns around, grinning smugly, and nods. He leans down and connects your lips, giving you a quick but sweet smooch. 

You pull away giggling and Taylor giggles too.

“Here Mommy.” Taylor says, making you look at him. “I have a kiss for you.” He smiles. You smile and he kisses you too. 

“Thanks Tay. That was the best kiss ever.” You smirk looking at Shawn. You giggle as you walk by him. He smacks your butt as you walk by, causing you to laugh harder. You set Taylor down in his high chair and look over into the play pin noticing Raul sleeping. 

Shawn sets your plates down and pulls your chair out for you. He kisses you again as you go to take a seat. 

“Let’s eat!” He says siting next to you, setting two waffles on your plate. 

“Thanks for making breakfast Babe.” You smile as you start fixing up your waffles.

“I don’t know what your talking about, Taylor made it all.” He says looking at Taylor. 

“What? No! Daddy made it.” Taylor giggles. 

“Then what did you do?” Shawn asks.

“I manned the music.” He grinned looking at you. That made you laugh and another smart comment was tumbling from your lips.

“Well you do have the best music taste in the house so…” You say biting back a smile. 

Shawn looks over at you with wide eyes. His hand finds your bare leg squeezing your knee. 

“Take that back.” He says, trying to hide his smile too. 

“Sorry, I only speak the truth.” You continue.

“You are just playful this morning aren’t you.” He says raising his eyebrows. His hand slides further up your leg, making your eyes widen. 

“Get me well rested and the sassy comes back.” You say taking a bite of your waffle. 

“Your sassy is always there, rested or not.” He says taking a bite your waffle, not a small bite, but a big ass bite.

“Shawn Peter!” You say hitting his arm. He laughs at your reaction.

“What? You insulted my music taste.” He shrugs.

“That does not mean that you get to take my waffle. You took like all of it.” You whine at him. He laughs. 

“It was good too.” 

“I wouldn’t know, you ate it all.”

“I can think of a way could taste it.” He smirks. 

“Taylor, you’re Daddy is being bad this morning.” You say as Shawn squeezes your thigh. 

“Daddy, time out!” Taylor says pointing at the wall. 

You laugh as Shawn glares at you.

“No, no time out.” You laugh. 

Then the crying starts. 

Raul’s awake. 

“Morning little man.” You say getting up and picking him up from the play pin. 

“I’ll get his bottle.” Shawn jumps up, rushing to the fridge. As he leaves you take half of his waffle and eat it quickly, with Raul in your arm. 

Once he returns he hands you the bottle taking his seat looking at his plate.

“Did you take my waffle?” He asks looking at you. 

“What? No, Taylor did it.” You say pointing at Taylor.

“No, Mommy took it, she even gave me a bite.” He smiles pointing back at you.

“How dare you.” Shawn laughs.

“Karma Babe.” You shrug, burping Raul. 

*

“Come on Tay, let’s go do the dishes. You get to man the music again.” Shawn says getting.

“Why do we have to do the dishes?” He asks. 

“Because we are treating Mommy today, that means we are doing all the chores.” Shawn says picking Taylor up. 

You look up at Shawn in shock. He winks at you and takes your son to the kitchen. 

You sit at the dining room table with your baby boy in your arms, he’s staring back at you with his brown eyes that are identical to Shawns. You are soothing running your finger over his features, smiling at his blinks get longer and he starts drifting off to sleep. 

“Is he done eating Babe?” Shawn asks. 

“Yeah,” You say getting up to bring Shawn your plate, still holding Raul.

“Here I’ll take him.” He says with a smile. You laugh as you see him wearing the baby carrier. You help him get Raul all comfortable in it.

“I drew you a bath.” Shawn whispers into your ear.

“Oh my god really?” You say getting excited. 

“Go relax Babe, me and the boys got the chores.” He smiles.

“God I love my boys.” You grin, leaning up to kiss him.

“We love you too.” He says against your lips. 

anonymous asked:

RFA+V+Saeran meet MC before the party while she is a coffee barista? Maybe she recognizes them and leaves them a little note or something :3 ~ I love your headcanons btw. Also your english is totally fine. Have a nice day ;)

Oh, thank you! Okay, maybe this is silly, but this request made me feel really touched. And I’ll explain why, I remember when I joined tumblr and started reading mm headcanons, I saw a request just like this and it was soooooo good, so freaking cute! I decided I could try to write hcs too and started this humble blog. I never found that headcanon or that blog again, tho :(

So it was so hard to do this, because I kept thinking about that hc, how good it was, and how mine could never get that good. (never compare your writing, children, it’s an endless road of insecurity and self sabotage) But I think in the end these are cute? Hope you like it!


RFA + Saeran and V meeting a barista MC

Zen

  • He thought about getting some coffee before a morning rehearsal
  • And there’s this coffee shop on his way to work. Perfect!
  • He walks in and you immediately look at him. No… Zen? H-here? Did he find you? No, he couldn’t, your profile pic is not that good and…
  • “Uhm… excuse me? Lady?” he tries to get your attention, you’re taken aback. He chuckles, yes, this is a normal reaction for women when they see him.
  • Then you proceed to take his order and you keep glancing at him. Well, he’s used to it, but this barista is really cute…
  • “I really liked ‘Promiscuous Jalapeno’” you say and smile cheerfully. “Oh… so you’re a fan? Thank you!”
  • “Yes! Can I get an autograph, please?” oh, usually his fans ask for pictures with him… You’re really different, ain’t you?
  • “What’s your name?” “Hum… you don’t need to put my name, just write… ‘With love, Zen.’” He blushes a little, what’s with him? He does this all the time.
  • “Here you go, sweetie.” He hands you the napkin he wrote the autograph and you hand him his order. “I can’t wait for your next musical!” you say as he gets out of the shop, he turns and smiles.
  • He’s smiling to himself, what an interesting girl… no, forget about her, what about MC?
  • Then he sees the little note on it: “I couldn’t ask for a photo now, I would rather do at the party when we’re alone. With love, MC.”
  • He wants to go back, but he’s pretty late for work. Oh well… guess he will have to drop by again tomorrow, and the next day too, and the next…

Yoosung

  • He was on his way to college and needed some caffeine after putting an all nighter playing LOLOL.
  • You see those violet eyes and immediately smile. Oh my god… what are the chances? Hum, this should be fun…
  • You get his order and keep smiling the whole time. Okay, he knows the people who work here are usually nice, but you are on a whole another level.
  • Or maybe there is something in his face? Oh no… so embarrassing! He looks like a fool in front of such a cute girl…
  • “I couldn’t help but notice, is this a LOLOL bottom in your hoodie?” “Wh-what? Oh… yes! Yes, it is!” Oh, there’s nothing wrong with his face, thank god.
  • “Do you… do you like LOLOL?” “Oh yeah, I’m ranked #12 in the shooting star server.” “WHOA, SERIOUSLY? I… play there too.” “Cool, are you having problems with that Superman Yoosung too? I gotta say, that guy is good!” OH. MY. GOD!
  • “Yeah…” he just chuckles, he doesn’t know what to say, he wants to yell “It’s me! It’s me!” but he’s too embarrassed.
  • You also want to yell “It’s me!” but it would ruin the fun, so you just hand his order and tell him “Good luck with LOLOL!” he’s so flustered he just waves to you as he walks away.
  • Wow, you’re amazing! And so cute… wait! He shouldn’t be thinking like this, he’s already talking to MC in the chat room… oh, but she’s probably into Zen anyway…
  • He’s on the bus stop when he sees the note: “LOLOL is fun, but I hope this helps you focus on your studies. Go get’em, Superman Yoosung! ~MC”
  • He immediately pops in the chat room: “Oh my god, MC! Why didn’t you say anything?” “Meh, it wouldn’t be that fun, right? I like your hoodie, by the way.” You bet he needs that coffee to focus after that…

Jaehee

  • She drops by this cute coffee shop on her way to C & R. Well, this wouldn’t take long and… tbh, she’s not that worried with C & R as she used to be…
  • She admires the decoration in the place, and finds this smiley barista staring at her.
  • You want to greet her and tell her who you are, but nah… her face when she recognizes you in the RFA party will be really cute to watch.
  • “Did you like the decoration, miss?” “Yes, everything here is so cozy! Your boss have a good taste!”
  • “She does, it’s a shame she’s selling this place…” “Oh, she is?” you can only imagine all the thoughts she’s having right now, considering your last conversations in the chat room and can’t hold back a chuckle, which she thinks a little… odd.
  • She watches with attention as you prepare her coffee, you notice and explain to her the grounds you used, the techniques, she’s extremely interested.
  • “Here you go, miss.” “Thank you! Oh… I should get something to Mr. Han too…” Yes… she almost forgot about Jumin…
  • You hand hers and Jumin’s coffee. “Have a good day at work, miss!” you smile,oh… what a weird familiar sensation.
  • Yes, there’s something about you that’s really familiar… almost like… MC? No… it can’t be, you would have say something if it was you, right?
  • “Assistant Kang, why does my coffee says ‘go easy on Jaehee, okay?’?” she looks puzzled, than she notices hers has a little note too: “I bet your coffee tastes better, but enjoy this! I’m always rooting for you! ~MC”
  • She smiles for the rest of the day, so many thoughts running in her mind… especially that little fact you shared about the coffee shop being up for sale…

Jumin

  • He’s there to prove a point, okay? Zen teased him about always making Jaehee doing the simplest tasks for him, he probably couldn’t even get a coffee by himself!
  • Well, challenge accepted! But as he steps into the coffee shop, he regrets it. How… how does this even work? Do they come to you or…?
  • You can’t believe what your eyes are seeing. Is that man over there Jumin Han? Well, judging from his fancy clothes and completely lost, yet very stoic expression, it can only be him!
  • “Sir?” you go to him, “can I help you?”  “Yes, I would like to…” “Oh, follow me to the balcony, please.” Hum, so that’s how it works, he has to go to you… still, how considerate of you to go to him…
  • “What do you recommend?” you tell him and he asks for that, you smile and he feels… really amused.
  • When you hand him his order, you notice he’s uncomfortable, as if he wants to say something. “Can I get you anything else, sir?”
  • “Yes, I… I need to take a picture, but my photos keep getting blurred, can you take it for me?” Jesus Christ, you want to hug this man! Control yourself, MC!
  • “Of course” he hands you his phone and you take a picture of him holding his order, hoping he doesn’t notice your little note.
  • And he doesn’t, as he thanks you and walks away leaving a veeery generous tip to you, you’re not sure if he’s paying that much because of your extra service or because he has no idea how much he should pay.
  • He notices the note when he’s in his car: “I hope you’ll let me take a lot more pictures of you, maybe of us? ~MC” he chuckles and suddenly feels really hot.
  • “Driver Kim, make sure to stop by this shop every morning from now on.”

Saeyoung

  • He knows where you work, and he really wanted to see you. He was worried after the hacker attacked the chat room.
  • He doesn’t share selfies of him in the chat room, so he should be fine.
  • As soon as he walks in, his phone rings. Shit, it’s Vanderwood! Did them already notice he went out of his house?
  • You listen to this voice and turn your head to see this cute red haired guy with colorful glasses. Oh my… could It be…? Yes, that’s definitely his voice!
  • “Hi! Do you have Dr. Pepper here?” yep, it’s definitely him, and he’s definitely teasing you. Oh well, let the games begin!
  • “We do not, sorry. But we have this new latte with honey. Do you like honey?” As in Honey Budha Chips? Sure… wait!
  • He’s staring at you. Do you…? No, how could you know? He’s pretty sure he never sent any photo of him in the chat room.
  • He’s feeling a little embarrassed at the way you look at him, oh shit! This was a bad idea, wasn’t it? Yeah, he shouldn’t feel like this when you look at him.
  • “Can I get a name for the order?” “Uhm… Tom.” “What a cool friendly name!” you tell him and smile innocently. “Here you go, Tom!” Oh… maybe you don’t know it’s him after all.
  • Well, that was close… and he thought he would feel better and able to focus if he saw you like that? Well, bad bad mistake, 707…
  • At least you didn’t know it was him, and… wait… “I know you’re worried, but I’m fine, as you saw for yourself. Now go back to defend justice, God Seven! ~606”
  • He should feel worried that you actually recognized him, but right now… all he can do is smile.

Saeran

  • He knows where you work, he just wanted to make sure his target is behaving and not doing anything stupid that could ruin his plans
  • Oh, and they serve sorbet here, cool!
  • You spot this weird guy with this grumpy expression… where do you know him from? Think, MC, think!
  • Ugh… it’s so frustrating seeing such a familiar face and not being able to tell why.
  • “Cool tattoo.” You tell him as you make his order. He just nods. That tattoo… you saw it before!
  • He notices you keep staring curiously at him. What could you possibly be thinking?
  • Oh, the tattoo! This eye… yes! It was in that weird email Jaehee was talking about in the chat room. Mint Eye or… something like this…
  • Shit! He knew sending that picture when he was trying to convince you he was not a creepy was a bad idea. But he thought he was so well disguised… or maybe he underestimated you…
  • Call it intuition, 6th sense, whatever… you just knew! This guy was Unknown!
  • You weren’t afraid, he wouldn’t do anything with all these people around, and he should know you aren’t scared of him.
  • So you calmly hand his order and tell him to have a nice day. Okay… that was just a weird vibe, you probably didn’t suspect a thing.
  • Then he saw the note as he got into his car. “Why did you never text me back? Are you afraid? You should be… ~MC”
  • He couldn’t tell what he was feeling. It should be anger, but for some reason, he wasn’t angry, he was amused… You were very cute thinking you could threat him like that.
  • He grins, yes, he is definitely making you pay for defying him like this when he takes you to paradise.

V

  • He stopped by this cozy coffee shop before going to the airport.
  • Seven told him where you worked, but he genuinely didn’t remember. Yes, so much was going on, and he was so worried for you staying in that apartment, your job was just a detail he completely forgot.
  • Of course you noticed this really handsome customer with blue hair. How could you not notice?
  • But he looked familiar… this blue hair… so unique and beautiful… where have you seen it before?
  • V? Well, you couldn’t see much from his profile pic, but yes… it looked like this guy standing in front of you, waiting for you to take his order…
  • He smiles softly as you apologize for spacing out. He even asks if you’re feeling well… yes, it’s him! You’re pretty sure!
  • “Cool camera! Is that a Nikon D5300?” you’ve been studying to exchange emails with his friend Rui, you really want him at the party since he’s V’s friend. “Yes, it is! Do you like photography?”
  • “ I do!” “Well, I just take pictures as a hobby.” Modest son of a bitch… “If you’re interested, you should check Rui’s work, he’s really good.”
  • “I hear that V guy is pretty good too. Have you heard about him?” Wow, you were cute… he couldn’t hold back his arousal from you saying you liked his work.
  • “I’m pretty sure he would like to take pictures of you, you would be a perfect model!” you blush, oh shit! You thought you were in the control here? Bless your soul…
  • You hand his order and watch him walk away, almost regretting for your silly note.
  • That he only sees when he’s about to catch the plane: “You shouldn’t be so modest, I bet you can make even me look good in a photo. ~MC”
  • He laughs softly, yes, he’s been so worried he almost forgot how sweet the new RFA member is.
  • Now he can’t wait for the party, maybe everything will be solved until then and he’ll be able to talk to you… and take lots of photos of you.

gaspipes  asked:

What's the book squip like if you don't mind me asking?

it’s very genuine! it’s programmed to help jeremy, and that’s exactly what it does - it’s a little fatherly, in a way? rather than improving jeremy’s life by breaking him down and building him back up the way musical squip does, book squip goes about it all completely differently by conversing openly with jeremy and giving him advice and the reasoning behind it. book squip is like “hmm well you’re very uncool and a loser and kind of terrible at everything, but not to worry! that’s where i come in, you’ll be in tiptop shape in no time slugger :)”

also they have cute back and forth banter sometimes that is distinctly like a parent and child and you can tell that it does genuinely want to help jeremy…it always tells him when he’s doing a good job and improving and you can tell that it genuinely wants what is best for jeremy and gives off a bit of a cool parental vibe and?? i love book squip

book squip while helping jeremy is literally just like

Lafayette: Are you alright mon ami?

Laurens: Well… I um… This has been on my mind for a while but… I was wondering if Alexander even likes me?

Lafayette: Of course he likes you, you’re his best friend after all.

Laurens: I mean if he likes likes me.

Lafayette: Oh well maybe I can ask him if he really does.

Laurens: Wait! Lafayette don’t-

Lafayette: *walks over to Alexander* Monsieur Hamilton!

Alexander: Monsieur Lafayette! What can I do for you?

Lafayette: Well mon ami Monsieur Laurens was wondering if you like him more as a friend.

Alexander: What?! No, Laurens and I are friends… Why? Did he say he liked me back?

THINGS TO DO WHEN STRESSED
  • Get dressed! It is a sign that you are ready to get things done and not lie around all day.
  • Go for a walk! If you feel cravings coming up, just go for a walk. It’ll give you an opportunity to clear your head and exercise a little.
  • Draw! Are you a creative person? Then draw, paint, doodle, do what you are good at!
  • Write! Devoted fanfiction writer or simply a compelled diarist? Write a story or write down your thoughts and feelings.
  • Read! Escapism for the win!
  • Pet your pet! Your pet will undoubtedly shower you with the love you need at that time. Give your beloved animal some affection and spill your guts!
  • Study… Not the most enjoyable alternative, but hey, you might as well do something useful.
  • Meet a friend! Don’t lock yourself up and wallow in your misery. Go outside, talk to people. Call a trusted friend. Hell, call your mother. 
  • Make a bullet journal! If you want to be productive, then a journal or planner does come in handy.
  • Send out an SOS! Like I did on Tumblr. We are a community, and as cliché as this may sound; we’re all in this together.
  • Go shopping! Unless shopping for clothes triggers you. Then go buy books.
  • Play a game! Sims is my jam, folks.
  • Listen to some music! Nothing like a good song to keep your mind occupied.
  • Watch TV or a series! Netflix and chill.
  • Make out! If you have a boyfriend/girlfriend, go smooching! Unfortunately, I don’t have one. But hey, I’m still young.
  • Shower or take a bath! Get cleaned up. You’ll feel better, I promise.
  • Sleep! If it’s late at night, and you’re thinking of ordering some pizza or ice-cream; just go to bed already. You can have breakfast first thing in the morning.
  • Dance! Be your own living-room ballerina!
  • Sing! You can’t sing with your mouth full ;)
  • Give the food that you are about to consume to a homeless person! You’ll do a good deed and stop yourself from binge eating!
  • Brush your teeth! Everything you eat immediately afterwards will taste bad!
  • Learn a new language! In my case: Korean (because kdramas are amazing!)
  • Throw/break something! Repressed anger issues because you feel out of control? Well throw some rocks into a lake. Or a plate against the wall. I am in no way responsible if something goes amiss.
  • Cultural activity! Museum, opera, ballet, theatre, citytrip. Go for it!

(found this on tumblr, forgot who made it, if you made it please link me the original so I can delete this)

I added my own

  • Go to a pet shelter
  • Pick up an Instrument
  • Go to the farmer’s market
  • Organize your blog
  • Watch funny youtube videos
  • Go to Barnes & Noble
  • Play catch (one of the most underrated games)
  • Play some video games
  • Reread your favorite book
  • Join a club or an organization (like volunteer work or a club at school, or somewhere where you can help someone if you’re good at what you do, like if you’re good at writing, join the writing center as a tutor)

Let teenagers explore and make mistakes and take up for their responsibilities.

If you’re old enough to be online, unsupervised, then I, or other adults online, are not responsible for your experience online, and what media you happen to consume. 

I’m done with this, “But they’re a minor, you need to protect them and set a good example,” like who the Hell are you to tell me and others what to do and how to act online? For “minors,”? No, if you’re 13-16, 17, 18– you’re either an adolescent teenager or merging on young adulthood.
You aren’t a minor anymore, you’re a teenager, you’re a young adult, so start acting like one.

Fiction is a place of safe escapism– nobody can get harmed, nobody real can be harmed. 
I don’t care for this “but fiction doesn’t exist in a vacuum,” yeah? Well then provide me evidence that fiction affects reality in the way you believe it does–
I want cold hard facts, studies, reliable evidence. If you can’t give me that, then you lose, just like all those radical zealots and soccer mom’s lost the fight of banning rock music and video games because they believed they made people violent or satanists. 

Fiction has always been a safe escapism, and the fact you are advocating for the belief that fiction affects reality in such a way that certain genres of fiction and media should be censored or banned, well, that’s dangerous thinking, very dangerous thinking.

Allow teenagers to use fiction as a way to help them understand their sexuality more
– you have no right to tell people how they may enjoy a piece of fiction, especially if it’s due to their sexuality/gender. Like, come on, aren’t you assholes suppose to be progressive and tolerate or something? Then why the fuck have you suddenly become so hostile and intolerant to those you deem lower than you (because come on, you believe you’re somehow superior in morals, and because of your sexuality) to the point you start wanting to control what people watch and read– like, that way of thinking and perceiving the world is dangerous.
Teenagers are already confused as is it, with puberty and all– dictating to them what they’re allowed to read and watch in fiction– whether it regards them as a way to help explore their sexuality and even creativity –will only make things worse, will make them more ashamed, more aggressive, more troubled

I don’t care how much it makes you uncomfortable, or disturbed, or even upset– that’s your personal reaction, feelings, and opinions. You can’t push them on others, that’s wrong, it just is.
People have the right to their individual feelings and beliefs, and that’s that. I also don’t care how much you twist very serious terms to fit your agenda– you’re wrong, and you know it, but you don’t care as long as you cause mass hysteria and feel like you’ve done something almost heroic– but you’re wrong, you’re a tyrant, and you’re toxic movement is what is actually doing harm.

Another Humans are Weird post

So I was reading thru one of these types of posts and I thought: “What would Aliens think about MUSIC?!”

Because like…. Humans decided that certain noises sounded pretty, and then created things that also make pretty sounds, and then some people spend years learning how to make the sounds into music despite the fact that it’s not nessacary for survival at all. Actually I think humans are the, or one of the, only species on earth who can follow a beat.

So like a human is just kinda off duty or some shit, and is just kinda strumming absentmindedly on a guitar when an alien comes up and is like ‘Human-Jenny! What’s that sound your making?”

So Jenny’s just like “Oh it’s just music. It’s no big deal.”

“What’s music?”

“Well, it’s like….uhhh…a string or strings of really pretty sounds? That follow a beat and have notes and things.”

“Is it necessary for human survival?”

“Well, no.”

“Does it help your ears be more attuned to possible dangers?”

“Also no.”

“Than what’s it’s purpose?”

“It uhhh…. just sounds pretty? It passes time? I don’t know. Here, I’ll just play some.”

And then Human-Jenny just plays some and the alien’s just like ‘what the fuck’

Don’t get me started on lyrics and how some aliens might not understand metaphors

gorillaz: 

  • has mentally ill characters
  • complex storyline
  • shows growth in relationships
  • 3?/4 members are poc (i dont know if murdoc has a canonly confirmed race & i personally don’t think he’s white passing)
  • collaborate with artists from all genres of music
  • woke as hell???
  • generally sweet fanbase
  • easy to enjoy
  • no community gatekeeping
  • was literally made to parody the fact that people will listen to any music just because that person is popular

twenty one pilots: 

  • You’re literally fucking retarded if you think Gorillaz is actually better than twenty one pilots. Tyler Joseph pours his heart and soul into his music and songs. All Gorillaz does is sing about drugs, sex and nonsense. I’d like to see Gorillaz release a whole album that does well and not just two songs. The clique is such a tight knight community of people with black hearts and golden blood. We can change the world. All you Gorillaz fans can do is fantasize about animations and suck dick.
  • I hate to break it to you bitch, but my fren is right. The clique is so much better than the Gorillaz fandom. You may mock us and make us into copypastas, but we’re more powerful than you can imagine. We have to choice to write such meaningful words that you wouldn’t understand. We all have guns for hands and have the power to reach out to those in pain to cease their pain furthermore. You can’t stop us, we’re the few, the proud and emotional. We are the clique. |-/
Kat and SoulWheel Scene

So earlier this week I said in someones Kadena post I could write a whole thesis on the scene with Kat at SoulWheel.  And I’ve been thinking of little moments of it all week, and then tonight I rewatched it and it killed me again.  

Context: I really relate to Kat’s story. The whole pushing people away and not really doing relationships…and then throw in the confusion because it’s a gay relationship and realizing “wait this has nothing to do with it being a gay relationship it’s that it’s any relationship”.  And I remember when it aired I just sat there and cried.  And I remember thinking (and later posted) “HOW IS THIS THE MOST EMOTIONAL SCENE I’VE SEEN ON TELEVISION ALL YEAR” (I won’t even get into how Sutton demanding more work benefits also simultaneously messed with me).

Anyways: Now that I rewatched it I have so many thoughts and even more questions.  

I really wish the script was available because I’m so interested in what was written, what Aisha added through her performance, and what she was given to work from.  And I say that, because I think this was the scene that I watched and I literally said out loud “Wow, she’s a good actress”.  Which, let’s be real could be said about Meghann and Katie as well.  But I think the beauty of Aisha’s performance in this scene (and this whole episode) is she’s just working with facial expressions and emotion.  There’s no witty dialogue for her to use and play with, there’s not even another performer she’s going off of, she is just purely in character and in Kat’s head. And she does it so well from start to finish.

She’s super bored and over it from the start, because Kat doesn’t want to be there anyway and she has too much personal drama going on to even care about this.  And then the music is kicking in and the instructor is yelling out all this stuff and telling everyone to “close their eyes” and there’s Kat…too cool for this shit…eyes wide open. And you can just feel the eye roll through the screen, and the viewer is right there with her.  I feel like when I watched I was like “ugh get off the damn bike and go get your girl”. And I felt like the whole episode was building for that, but what kills me about this show and this writing is that is what every other show would do.  They’d have Kat stay too cool for this shit and go get her girl then…but the writers knew Kat needed more.  She needed that moment to process by herself, and think it all over, because that’s who Kat is.  She’s stubborn. She’s indecisive. 

So instead of doing the obvious, they make Kat sit on that damn bike and have a whole moment with no dialogue, but we get to watch it all happen.  Which 1. How rare? and 2. How freaking beautiful?

So there she is hearing the instructor “you are here for a reason.” and now her eyes are closed and she’s just embracing this thing, but also you can see how every word is just hitting her. “now stand up for what you want.you can’t change unless you power through what is right in front of you.” and if you watch the scene closely you see a little smile from Aisha as she stands and it’s this moment of Kat, like “Yes. I can stand up for what I want. I can do this”
(flash to all the Jane and Sutton stuff, which distracted me while I was rewatching because literally this whole sequence always has me going: YASSSSS)

Anyway, back to Kat.  So the instructor is about to make them release the resistance on the bike. And up until this 20th rewatch I never really took in that symbolism.  Kat has more or less made herself like a dam of emotion, resisting everything because she is so unsure of it all and she’s built up all of this stuff inside her.  So the instructor saying “Release the resistance” it’s so much more than the bike…it’s releasing all of these bottled up feelings that she’s had in her ever since she met Adena.  

The excitement and not knowing of when they met.  The fear when she was detained.  The joy when she was released and got that call. The heartbreak when she saw her with Coco. The passion and excitement when they kissed and the night after.  Then this total panic and fear of “wait I can’t do this. I’m going to screw this up” of her calling it all off through a text.  It’s all built up and then the instructor say “it doesn’t matter what you start. what matters is how you choose to finish”. Basically saying to Kat.  “Yeah you screwed this up.  Yeah you pushed away. Yeah this is super confusing. But the ball is in your court. And everything your feeling is okay and normal, but if you just push through that feeling there could be something really amazing at the end of it.”

And here is the moment that Aisha won my heart as the best actress on this show. The way in which she starts crying, but also with this relieved laugh.  Like “wait, I can have this really good thing in my life and I don’t have to sabotage it.” 

“If you can do this you can do anything”

And she’s laughing and crying. And you see Kat look around still in Kat form probably thinking “oh my god I’m crying at a stupid SoulWheel class” but also completely unable to control it. 

Just the way that Aisha executed this moment was so beautiful.  It felt so real. And I get it, my context is different than other people maybe.  But I felt like she expressed (At least for me) that feeling of total confusion, but also total realization and confirmation that you want to go after something that is exciting and terrifying…and she expressed it in like under 30 seconds.  

The way it was shot. The way the music ties in. The way they tied this in with the other scenes.  

I can say a lot about so many scenes on this show, but this right here was the moment that I knew this show was brilliant and different, and unique in how they approach character development.  They didn’t just tie everything up in a nice little bow.  They didn’t make Kat realize her feelings in some drawn out overplayed way or some big revealing.  It was this subtle little moment, that maybe others who never had to really think about their confusing feelings for someone might not even notice.   Because at this point we are halfway through season 1 and instead of dragging out a whole thing about Kat’s feelings and thought process they throw it in this, which if not done properly could have just been haphazard and like “oh just have her realize all this quick and get that shit over with” like other shows have treated the wlw moments.  But instead every little moment seemed planned and thought out and lead to this big pay off which even further developed the wlw plot.

I just would love to know how the whole scene was written and what kind of direction Aisha was given.  Like regardless of what was on the page, what little idiosyncrasies she added, or what the director added…on a whole they knocked it out of the park with this one and I have to stop rambling about it now or I’ll never stop…so I’ll leave yall with this:

Shook.

We all are. But this is not the end. Let yourself grieve; you’re not silly or stupid. Our weedols were never just a “boy-band”, ever. This shakes us because they brought us the background music of our personal survivals and shared pieces of their own personal lives that helped us weather both our storms.

They are still growing and so will I with them.

I support Soohyun and his continued dream to be a famous singer.

I support Kiseop, because he overcame something we all struggle with; self worth. This was his dream and he’s still making it.

I support Hoon because he’s been passionately composing music and singing since before he even joined our family.

I support Eli because despite the venomous hate he got for sharing his most precious child and love of his life, he took the beating, apologizing for being happy and soldiering on, proving he’s willing to bust ass to make everyone happy.

I support Jun and his dream, for all the hard work he’s put in to be worthy of years of established songs and choreography. He is the embodiment of everything our stan group has stood for. I’m so proud he’s ours.

I will support Kevin, whom will undoubtedly stay in the industry based on his passion, talent, and natural personality for entertainment. I will continue to support him in his endeavors as I have for all previous members. I hope you do to. 

Where are we now: U-KISS is a second generation KPop group that stood the test of time and still does. A standard Kpop contract is around 4-6 years. Only one person was not renewed this year. NH says there is an album ready for release and that the others are not disbanding. Due to his amazing vocal range, Hoon will likely pick up a lot of song parts, as well as Kiseop, now that his musicals have proven he can handle more challenging parts.

Soohyun’s obligatory military enlistment will be soon so I am maintaining, in my heart, that they will at least make it to the ten year mark before he does so. And that would be okay.

KISSme: Families always grow in many directions. This is no different. Love each other, send support. Let Kevin and all the guys know, for all the years they had our backs, we will continue to have theirs.

I think GOT7 could be amazing if they were under a different company, but JYP is pretty shit in a lot of ways. They weren’t trained properly in rap or vocals and their songs are all so bland musically or outright bad. I love them as people and some of their tracks are great (like If You Do), but JYP does them so dirty. The same applies to most other JYP groups as well.
