This is not an ask but I feel like if kpop were to become more "mainstream" or even more "popular" in the west, especially in the U.S. we would find a way to make it oversaturated (or more than is might already is), etc. For me, (even though I know it is similar to western music in a MULTITUDE of ways) K-pop is kinda like a break away from mainstream American music so to speak..

exactly and they’ll pressure them into releasing english only songs and its gonna ruin everything

I've seen a few people say that Katie Hall was 16 when cast. But does this mean that she first went on as the triangle girl and mirror bride at 16 or 17?

As Christine? Hmmmm.

Katie Hall was born in August 1990, and if my lists are correct she joined the West End production as u/s Christine in June 2008, replacing Sofia Escobar. She was 17 at this point, and probably 18 when she first went on as Christine. Still extremely young, by any means! And also impressive that she became the alternate at 21 and principal in the tour at 22. She did more in her early 20s than I’ve achieved as an adult, goddamnit. Kudos to her.

To be clear: I want idols to be successful 1/2

whether it be in their home country or internationally but I feel like in the west especially the U.S. has a tendency to use stuff from different cultures, (in this case kpop) and not take it seriously or appreciate it as they should and turn it into some “fad” or “gimmick” etc. I hope this make sense and I did not seem like I was blowing this out of proportion or anything, thank you for answering this question…

Christines with auburn/reddish wigs (not a complete list by any means)

  9. Nicky Adams, West End (alt. 2003-04)

Nicky Adams appears to have been the first West End Christine to don the auburn wig. After her it’s surprisingly often been worn by the alternate Christine. Apart from West End, the Essen wigs were also very much on the reddish side.

'Why no action?': Trump slams Obama administration for its handling of Russia's election meddling

(U.S. President Barack Obama ® greets President-elect Donald Trump at inauguration ceremonies swearing in Trump as president on the West front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, U.S., January 20, 2017.REUTERS/Carlos Barria)

President Donald Trump unleashed a tweetstorm on Saturday once again slamming former president Barack Obama for his apparent inaction when he learned Russia was meddling in the 2016 US election.

“Since the Obama Administration was told way before the 2016 Election that the Russians were meddling, why no action?” Trump tweeted. “Focus on them, not T!”

He followed up shortly after: “Obama Administration official said they ‘choked’ when it came to acting on Russian meddling of election. They didn’t want to hurt Hillary?”

Trump was referring to a Washington Post story detailing the Obama administration's struggle to penalize Russia for its election interference. 

The report found that even after Obama and his senior aides were provided with an intelligence report detailing how Russian hackers had breached the Democratic National Committee’s servers in an attempt to damage Clinton’s candidacy, they failed to act. That failure, the report said, was born out of an assumption that Clinton would win the November election regardless. 

A senior Obama administration official said of his team’s inaction: “It is the hardest thing about my entire time in government to defend.”

“I feel like we sort of choked.”

Trump’s tweets come as his own administration continues to grapple with ongoing congressional and FBI investigations into the Trump campaign’s possible role in Russian election interference. Last week, Trump seemed to confirm reports that he was under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, who was selected to spearhead the FBI’s investigation after Trump ousted former FBI director James Comey. 

In the weeks following Comey’s abrupt removal, a series of developments raised further questions about the president’s and his associates’ dealings with Russia. A number of administration officials and advisers, including Trump himself, have now hired outside legal counsel to represent in the continuing investigation. 

Following his tweets about the Russia investigation, Trump also touted the Senate’s healthcare bill and appeared to urge Republican senators to support the measure. “I cannot imagine that these very fine Republican Senators would allow the American people to suffer a broken ObamaCare any longer!” he tweeted

Assuming you're two hours ahead of me here on the West Coast of the U.S.A., only 8 1/2 hours until you die from 'Wanted's' Premiere. Remember though, Believe in Steven! - Sincerely, A Gemstone Universe Fan.

Oh dear me no level of mental fortitude can prepare me for what’s ahead. 

hola to all you beans and biscuits! it’s a pleasure to be here and make your acquaintances! so for starters, my name is jules, and i live on the west coast of the u.s., a.k.a. i’m in the pst time zone. i’m currently 17, but i do turn 18 in a few months so yay! i have seen all of riverdale and i know most about teen wolf. i stopped watching around season 6, but i did read up on here and other sites about what’s been going on for the most part, so hopefully it helps should it be need-to-know. just as a heads up, if i post out of character it’ll be using ella purnell gif icons, and anything in or pertaining to roleplay posts for jellybean will have grace phipps ones! i’m a little new to this platform, but here are a few things to know about how i’m portraying j e l l y b e a n   j o n e s!

  • jellybean resides with her mother n e a r the southside (but not within)
  • she has her own suspicions about jason’s death, and her young mind and easily peaked curiosity may just get her into trouble with everything unraveling around it 
  • in terms of relationships, romantically i have a couple ideas but i won’t vocalize (or type out, in this case) what they are unless directly confronted, especially given my age and the extent it can or cannot go. generally in means of communication, i do see her getting along with most of jugheads friends! 
  • in the comics, jellybean and veronica didn’t seem to get along. veronica usually exploited jellybean for her own gain, and while that may not be a case for this roleplay, i’m definitely open to the possibility of a little disconnection there!
  • jellybean is pretty mature for a 15 year old, but she still can show that she’s just a teenager in certain moments, especially with all that’s going on in her father and jughead’s own lives.
