why i love kim sunggyu

anonymous asked:

pretty pretty please oh pleaase will you do a post about sunggyu as in what's so great about him, just because i want one after the great job you did on Woohyun :D

Okay so my Woohyun post was liked by people, that’s always nice to hear! I hope the anon who sent in the original ask starts to see Woohyun in a different light from now on ~~

I guess I can talk about Sunggyu too, but where to begin?

1. HIS UNIQUE VOICE / EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION

Sunggyu’s voice is one that is instantly recognisable. He can be a soft falsetto, he can be a heart-wrenching high note. He is as versatile a vocal as Woohyun is, and can lend his voice to many different genres of music. He has proven himself a strong live vocalist too (remember that time the music stopped during a live and he just carried on singing, totally unfazed?). One of my favourite performances of his was on Yu Huiyeol’s Sketchbook in 2015, where he sang Nell’s Time Spent Walking Through Memories and his own title track Kontrol. 

Sunggyu has one of those voices that really makes you feel things, you know? He is able to project some real emotion into his vocals, and every single song on his second solo album 27 just hits you with it. One of my fave things is when Sunggyu sings songs with softer, quieter parts that then reach an inevitable crescendo where he showcases the true power of his voice. A good example of that is this performance of Only Tears. Then there is this incredible duet he did on Duet Song Festival which just gets me every single time. I could probably go on about Sunggyu’s voice forever. But here is a compilation of his head notes, falsettos and long notes on Immortal Songs 2. 

2. LEADER GYU

Not only is Sunggyu an amazing leader for INFINITE in the sense that he pushes them to succeed and leads with a firm hand, he is also known to counsel the other members if they need advice. For Sungyeol and Sungjong’s birthdays last year, he went out while they were in Japan to get them gifts as he didn’t want them to miss out just because they weren’t at home. In INFINITE Showtime episode 10, Sungjong thanked Sunggyu for helping him out and listening when he has worries and concerns. The INFINITE members are close enough to Sunggyu that they can absolutely roast him on tv shows, knowing that its a joke. Back when they all lived together in a dorm, Sunggyu would wake up the members, and that is seriously the cutest thing ever, just watch it (like, yeah okay so he wrestles Woohyun, but he was being a little brat! And the spraying Sungjong was totally Nam’s idea soooo…).

3. VARIETY SHOW KING, KIM SUNGGYU

Sunggyu has appeared on sooooo many shows it would take forever to list them all here. However, I couldn’t make this post without mentioning this side of him. Sunggyu has been on loads of different types of shows, including (but not limited to), The Genius, The Sea I Wanted/Dreaming Sea, Fluttering/Exciting India, and twice on Take Care of My Refrigerator. Not only that, but he has been a special host on numerous episodes of Weekly Idol and got his first proper MC position on the show Girl Spirit in 2016. Why is Sunggyu so good on these shows? Because not only is he intelligent, cunning and witty, he knows exactly what the audience wants. Whether it’s deliberately messing up a dance on Weekly Idol in order to get his manager punished, or if it’s his openness and honesty on 4Things Show . Also, here is a video of him peeling a Korean melon with his teeth.

He is also currently MCing a new show called Singderella alongside Super Junior’s Heechul, and it already looks to be pretty hilarious. You can easily find clips on Youtube ~

4. AND EVERYTHING ELSE:

So above were three main points about Sunggyu as an idol, as the leader of INFINITE, as a singer. Here are some more important things:

  • Sunggyu has made multiple appearances in musicals, showing his vocal versatility as well as his acting skills. He has had main roles in Gwanghwamun Sonata (alongside Super Junior’s Kyuhyun), Vampire, In The Heights (with fellow member Dongwoo) and All Shook Up.
  • His friendships with other idols. Sunggyu is known to be close with numerous other idols, most notably Super Junior’s Heechul and Kyuhyun, SHINee’s Minho and (former) Beast’s Junghyun. He even appeared on Junghyun’s FB Live broadcast a few months ago in the Beast member’s new studio. 
  • His love of Nell. He is known to be a huuuuuge Nell fanboy, actually going so far as to say he only auditioned for Woollim because Nell were part of the company at that time. He reached peak fanboy when Nell’s Kim Jongwan produced his second solo album 27 and featured on a track with Epik High’s Tablo.
  • His undeniable good looks… So many people may be critical of Sunggyu’s small eyes, but it has to be said that he has amazingly good visuals. That jawline, those hands… I could go on, but you get the idea.
  • His hella cute baby pictures. He was the squishiest little cute kid!

In conclusion, I love Kim Sunggyu and so should you.

If you want me to do more of these for other members, just let me know heheh also @becuzgyu this is dedicated to you ~~

HARRY POTTER TAG

Note: This is a Harry Potter tag I made up (with questions from many different tags), since I’m not satisfied with the ones I saw online.

ALL ANSWERS SHOULD HAVE REASONING.

1. Favourite book?

Without any hesitation, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Let me list some reasons why:

+ Things are dark, but Hogwarts is still there, unlike Deathly Hallows.

+ Lots of Slytherin stuff - Snape, Draco, Slughorn…

+ Contains my favourite chapter - Spinner’s End (so the Unbreakable Vow and all).

+ Dumbledore dies and mind you, I didn’t like this dude.

+ Lavender Brown comes into the picture and makes Granger pissed off ♥ 

+ All the Voldemort’s memories, especially THE ONE WITH THE GAUNTS THEY SHAMELESSLY OMITTED IN THE FILM.

+ Contains gazillions of my favourite quotes. 

So, yeah.

2. Favourite film?

That’s harder than the book, but I dare say Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Even though it lacks a lot (as usual), I’m happy they included all the most awesome things, like the Quidditch World Cup and the Yule Ball. Even though Moody-aka-Crouch Jr isn’t explained at all in the end, it’s still awesome. The return of Voldemort is just stunning.

3. Favourite female character?

I’m torn between Narcissa and Bellatrix. Everyone talks about Evans, but I loved Narcissa’s motherly love. Firstly, she’s so desparate to protect Draco she goes to ask Snape for help, knowing Voldemort forbidden her to tell anyone, and she is ready to duel Bellatrix, even if it’s her own sister. And she risked her life once again, LYING RIGHT UNDER VOLDEMORT’S NON-EXISTENT NOSE to protect her son, and thanks to that Evans’ sacrifice made sense. That’s also under proof how much Voldemort understimated the power of love. 

Bellatrix, on the other hand, is (first of all) a great dueller. I’d like to be one, too in the wizarding world (Weasley killed her only because Bellatrix didn’t treat her seriously). Secondly, she is just cool, in all her darkness and madness. I think there is much more to her than most people see. She’s a symbol of obsession, symbol of what addiction can lead us to - death, in the very end.

So…Since they’re sisters, can I have both?

4. Favourite male character?

Draco Malfoy, and let me explain myself.

I’m not another fangirl who just likes bad boys, there is much more to Draco’s character than that.

We meet Draco as a selfish boy who is spoiled by his parents and most people see him just like that throughout the series. But Draco is a symbol of something a lot of teenagers struggle with nowadays - he tries to prove himself to his father, his cruel father, who is dissapointed that his only son didn’t manage to befriend someone as famous as Harry Potter. And Draco’s mission of killing Dumbledore represents teenagers who think they’re oh-so-adult, while they aren’t, which he realises when the final moment comes. 

As a bonus, he’s a Slytherin, he’s blonde (I love blonde guys) and he doesn’t like Gryffindors (the enemy of my enemy is my friend), all in one. And he’s got the most of my favourite quotes.

5. Favourite character in overall?

Draco, see my reasoning above xd

6. Favourite animal (e.g. Hedwig, Buckbeak, Crookshanks)?

It’s hard, but I think I’ll choose Crookshanks. It chased Pettigrew, anyway, and there’s a theory it might have been Regulus Black.

Originally posted by cinematic-literature

7. Favourite magical creature (e.g. Thestral, Hippogriff, Dementor, house-elf)?

The Bowtruckle WITHOUT DOUBTS! I want one!

Originally posted by fanfictionsandotherstuffs

8. Favourite subject?

Defence Agains the Dark Arts. The only subject that has anything to do with the Dark Arts.

Originally posted by mrs-marauders

9. Favourite teacher in overall?

Severus Snape, of course! He called Granger an insufferable know-it-all who she was, and why did only Snape have the guts to say it? And he spoke about his subject like about a lover. And turn to page 394.

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

10. Favourite DADA teacher?

As much as I love Snape, I choose Lockhart. You wouldn’t need to do ANYTHING during those lessons, you’d just need to tell him you’re his fan and duh, passed.

Originally posted by vablatsky

11. Favourite villain?

I like all villains except for Pansy, Crabbe and Goyle because they were stupid, Wormtail, because he was disgusting and Umbridge, because it’s Umbridge.

12. Favourite quote?

There are gazillions, but let’s stay by these two:

“You know how I think they choose people for the Gryffidor team? It’s people they feel sorry for. See, there’s Potter, who’s got no parents, then there’s the Weasleys, who’ve got no money - you should be on the team, Longbottom, you’ve got no brains.” ~ Draco, Philosopher’s Stone

“They’d be waiting for the Chosen Captain - The Boy Who Scored - whatever they call you these days.” ~ Draco, Half-Blood Prince

13. Favourite scene?

Either the Unbreakable Vow or the long conversation of Draco and Dumbledore. 

Originally posted by lumosnox7

14. Favourite scene/event/thing/character that wasn’t included in the films?

MEMORY. WITH. THE. GAUNTS. AMEN.

15. Your house?

Slytherin, as everyone has probably deducted by now. All the way. Took the Pottermore test four times after different peroids of time to be sure, always put in Slytherin. Also, I don’t get all my fellow Slytherins who try to defend us because of that ‘all Slytherins are bad’ stereotype. I love this opinion, they should fear us.

16. Your Patronus?

A wolf, Pottermore gave me a fox though.

Originally posted by patronusmeaning

17. Your wand?

Blackthorn, 10 inches, unicorn’s hair, stiff.

Originally posted by deardiaryofahalf-blood

18. Favourite spell?

Expecto Patronum, because it’s individual for everyone, and creates something beautiful.

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

19. Death Eaters or Dumbledore’s Army?

Death Eaters, even if I can’t conjure a Patronus anymore! I’m becoming one for carnival *,*

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

20. Favourite horcrux?

The Slytherin locket. I’d wear it.

Originally posted by fuuworld

21. Favourite Hallow?

The Elder Wand, of course. I wouldn’t need an Invisibility Cloak with such a wand, it could make me invisible, and I don’t need to bring back anyone from the dead, they wouldn’t belong in our world anyways. I need power and powerful magic.

Originally posted by floopowder-network

22. Favourite snack/dish/drink?

Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans. They mean every flavour, and that’s awesome.

Originally posted by whatsrightvswhatseasy

23. Favourite potion?

Amortentia. It’s one of the most dangerous potions, and it’s individual, like the Patronus Charm. I wonder how it would smell for me. Besides, you could do a lot of mess with this potion. That’d be perfect. Be careful what you drink.

24. Favourite canon couple?

Drapple! Jk, Tonks and Lupin. The best match in the series ever. At least they died together…

Originally posted by mathewsdadario

25. Favourite non-canon couple?

Granger and Krum, I shipped that so hard and then Weasley came into the picture.

Originally posted by pansyknowsallthingspotter

26. Durmstrang or Beauxbatons?

Durmstrang of course, Grindelwald learnt there! I’m not into being a fairy princess, as Moody-Crouch said.

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

27. Hogwarts or Ilvermorny?

Hogwarts, duh! No explanation needed!

28. Least favourite character? 

Hermione Granger, without a second’s doubt. She irritaed me so much, especially in Prisoner of Azkaban, when she took that broomstick. Like NO. NO. NO. NO. It’s a huge no-no for me.

Originally posted by potters-broomstick

29. Least favourite book? 

Even though I unconditionally love them all, I must say Prisoner of Azkaban. It gets like no Voldemort and everything is just WAH WAH SIRIUS BLACK IS GOING TO KILL YAH.

-I still love it tho-

Originally posted by padfootsprophecy

30. Least favourite film? 

Half-Blood Prince, because this is my friggin favourite book, and it lacked almost all of my favourite scenes, quotes and everything.

Originally posted by goktugeminsafli

31. Least favourite teacher? 

Is that even a question?

The toad, and everybody knows why.

Originally posted by pansyknowsallthingspotter

32. What would your job in the wizarding world be? 

I’d totally be an Obliviator. I mean, it’s such a cool job, because it’s not steady, and people won’t mess with you, because they know what a wave of your wand can do to your memories.

Originally posted by hogwarts-magical-world

33. List the houses starting with the one you are most sure to get into, finishing with the one you are least likely to be in. 

Slytherin > Ravenclaw = (?) Hufflepuff > Gryffindor

Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw are very close tho. I’d totally be a Hufflepuff if I weren’t this mean and cunning and if there weren’t a house like Slytherin…

My friends tho, not close friends, just like you know, random mates, think I should be a Ravenclaw because ‘I’m so smart’, but they don’t know my Slytherin side.

And I’m almost a total opposite of a Gryffindor, so yeah.

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

34. Would you play Quidditch? If yes, which position? 

I’d totally play if I were good on a broom. If I weren’t, I wouldn’t try oh so hard to get on the team (doesn’t mean I wouldn’t play somewhere else).

I’d play Chaser, because I’m hopeless at keeping, too slow to be a Seeker and too lazy to ride holding a bat.

Originally posted by the-goblet-of-slytherin

35. Favourite extra-book? (e.g. Quidditch Through The Ages) 

Absolutely Tales of Beedle The Bart. As much as we all love the tale about the three brothers, I love the one about the fountain. A must-read.

Originally posted by jace-clary-always

36. Favourite place? (could be anything: Hogsmeade, Grimmauld Place, Forbidden Forest, Diagon Alley etc.) 

Knockturn Alley? I’d totally like to visit Borgin and Burkes and all other shops with Dark Arts stuff. Imagine a Potion shop in there. Chills.

Originally posted by tomfeltonxoxo

37. Would you join the Triwizard Tournament? 

Yup. Why if Hogwarts got a Slytherin champion? That’d be awesome af.

Originally posted by avocadosalad2

38. One character you would bring back from the dead? 

Lupin or Tonks, because thanks to bloody Potter another kid became an orphan. Good job, Potter. 

Or Snape *feels a lot*

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

39. Your blood status? 

Pure-blood! I’m a Slytherin, after all! 

Originally posted by blaming-the-nargles

40. Who would you want to go to the Yule Ball with? 

1. Someone from Slytherin. 2. Not Crabbe or Goyle. 

This means Draco, Blaise and Nott would be all alright, but I can’t hide I’d like the first option the most.

Originally posted by patchismyhusband

41. What would you see in the Mirror of Erised? 

Myself and the person I hopelessly love, but they’re unavailable. (Kim Sunggyu why you so far away)

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

42. What would be your Boggart? 

I’m not sure. I’m not scared of small spaces, any insects, any animals in overall, darkness, ghosts…I’m scared of things that happen unexpectedly, though, so I’m not sure…Or someone close to me dead.

Originally posted by snivellusriddikulus

43. What would you feel if you smelled Amortentia? 

Well…I’m addicted to rain’s smell (London after rain is just AAAAAAAH), and to the smell you can feel in the mountains in an open field. Aah, I just imagined it…

Originally posted by rinachuu

44. Favourite gift from the series? (e.g. Firebolt, the Weasley jumper, the Triwizard Tournament winnings) 

THE FRIGGIN CANDY WRAPPING NEVILLE’S MOTHER GAVE HIM. NO FURTHER EXPLANATION NEEDED.

Originally posted by parttimeperfectionist

45. Favourite Marauder? 

Wormtail was disgusting, Potter was a prat, Sirius and Lupin were quite cool. I’ll choose Sirius for his YOLO thingy. And his cool Animagus and loyalty to friends.

Originally posted by w-byers

46. Team Jily or team Snily? 

Neither. Evans didn’t deserve Snape, but on the other hand going away with Potter hurt him SO MUCH that I don’t ship that either.

Originally posted by slytherinnpride

47. Any moments that made you cry?

1. Potter finding his mother’s letter in Grimmauld Place. My mother is the most important person in my life and I can relate

2. Narcissa begging Snape to help Draco

3. CANDY WRAPPING

4. Snape’s death

48. Favourite Harry Potter-related game? 

Harry Potter: Book of Potions! I enjoyed every bit of it.

49. Is there a film you preferred to the book?

Only Muggles answer yes to this question.

50. Favourite song from the OST?

Sirius’ Death from the Order of the Phoenix. The fight variation is life.

Originally posted by bellarkia

51. Which character do you think you’d instantly become friends with?

Well, Draco isn’t a person you walk up to and say HEY, MY NAME IS ___, WANNA BE FRIENDS?, nor am I, so I dare say Blaise.

Originally posted by noneedtocallmesir-professor

52. Favourite Weasley?

I didn’t like their lot, since all of them liked Potter, but Charlie was cool enough. I mean, he worked with dragons!

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

53. How did you start your journey with HP?

My best friends (a diehard Ravenclaw and a Gryffindor, funnily enough).

Originally posted by fanasticlypotter

Yup, even though I’m not a big fan of Hinny.

Originally posted by hatersbehaters4ever

55.  How much does Harry Potter mean to you?

World. Everything around me turns around Harry Potter. From my clothes to free time to everything.
