Hoya - Lonely Hearts

Five…Six…Seven…Eight, two bodies floated across the wood floor. Twisting, turning, moving with the music in perfect harmony, Hoya twirled you around him as the music continued. The music cut and you were in a dip position with Hoya looking down on you he smile and brought you back up into the upright position.

“Take five, everyone.” The choreographer boomed as the dancers dispersed and talked, you walked over to your bag, your hand wrapped around your water bottle. You slid down the wall and sat on the floor engaging all of your senses into feeling that water rush down your parched throat. You closed your eyes trying to escape but you never had been able to, you thought of how your job would have been different if you weren’t so shy and if you weren’t so music crazy, but none-the-less you loved the position that you had landed. Even though you had never had any specific dance training you always were chosen to be the lead in everything that you do. All of the other girls and back-up dancers didn’t really like you for that reason as well as being a good dancer without having to work at it. But what they didn’t know was all the time, money, and pain that you had put into your career.

“Hello?” Hoya squatted on the tips of his toes waving his hand in front of his face. You lowered the water bottle from your lips as you gazed on one of the members of Infinite.

“Hello” You stretched out one of your legs and then started to bend over to stretch. You felt a hand on your back pushing you down a little further so that the pressure could stretch the tender muscles that you had been using. You gently sat up and took another sip of your water.

“Let’s run that again!” The choreographer yelled over the chatter that filled the room. Hoya’s hands outreached to help you up; you slid your water bottle into your bag and placed your hands in his. You were impressed with the strength that he had to pull you up as well as his manners. After running that song another fifty times, everybody was free to go home. You walked over to your bag, placed some extra clothing that you had thrown over there into your bag. You said farewell to the manager and choreographer and left the room.

Walking down the long lonely hall where only your thoughts accompanied you through your long journey. You looked at your phones ominously as the hallway opened into the main lobby. You heard your name faintly from behind you. You thought it was just the other girls making fun of your again. You name increased with volume as you slowed down and looked over your shoulder.

“________” Hoya ran down the hall that you had just walked down, catching his breath as he reached you. You rummaged around in your bag to find your water bottle and handed it over to him so that he could breathe again. He placed the water bottle onto his soft lips and took gulps of water as you looked around you both.

“Thanks.” He said as he handed the water bottle back to you.

“No problem. Is there something you wanted?” You asked hoping to not pry.

“Oh…well…I-I was just going to say, See you tomorrow.” Hoya showing his white teeth through a smile

“Oh, ok. Well see you tomorrow too Hoya.” You bowed to him and then you walked towards the door. Hoya watched you as you walked to your car and drove off. His hand pushed against the glass with regret as he hoped that he would get another chance to talk to you.


“Ok everyone this is a dress rehearsal, please go get changed in fifteen minutes.” The manager announced over the conversations that created a wave of words. Walking into the dressing room was like a war, it smelled of toxic fumes from all of the perfume and all of the hateful comments that you had received in that room made you super uncomfortable. You changed into ripped jeans that fit you perfectly and hugged you in the right places and then you put on a white tank top with a levi jean jacket and headed out of the war zone to do your hair in front of the mirror. You placed all of your hair into a ponytail and grabbed another sip of water before the guys started emerging from the guy’s dressing rooms. You watched the guy’s reactions as they watched you walk across the floor to the manager. You talked with him a little longer than usual and then you had to go warm up. The other back up dancer girls started to emerge as well but they looked different than you since you were given the part of lead back up dancer. They wore shorts while you wore full length jeans they also didn’t have the jean jacket that you had. All of the boys gathered on the floor as did the girls. The music started up and you danced like you had before no difference, no changing in your dancing was made. The other back up dancers began to get in your way and trip you. Fortunately Hoya was right there to catch you before you fell to the hard ground.

“Take five.” The choreographer said as they cut the music. You walked over into a corner of the room and sat on the ground and buried your face into your hands. Silent tears fell as you sat there waiting for the dancing to start up again so you could release your anger. You felt a gentle hand on your back rubbing in circles. Your eyes lifted to see who it was, you gazed upon the soft eyes, brown hair that always looked perfect and his gentle smile welcomed you out of your little world.

“Hey, I was just seeing if you were ok from the dance practice. The girls can be a little mean sometimes.” Hoya commented as you placed your head on your knees and wrapped your arms around your legs to create a small ball for yourself. You nodded at Hoya’s comments. “I was so happy when they partnered you with me. I could barely contain myself because I could see that you weren’t like any of those other dancers that just wanted to be with the celebrities, but you wanted to dance because you felt a connection with the music not with the guys that you were hoping to get from the dancing.” A smile appeared on your face as he kept rubbing your back.

They called all of the dancers back and he helped you up. You danced with everything you had and people noticed, especially Hoya. Practice ended the comments that the girls made to you didn’t seem to matter anymore because you knew that someone had your back. Hoya walked you down the hall to your car; he got into his and followed you out of the companies’ parking lot.


The brisk cool morning air bit your nose as you began to walk out to your beaten down old car. You opened the door and pushed the key into the ignition. You turned the key, your car made a bad revving noise and then high pitched grinding came after. You pulled your key out of the car, slammed the door and started to walk to the companies’ building. You walked for a half an hour before you started to freeze. You stopped in a small shop and got warm for a couple minutes and then walked out of the door. There was a car that passed by that looked really familiar to you and you watched that car as it pulled over to the side of the busy road. Hoya got out of the car and ran up to you. You could hardly believe your eyes.

“What are you doing out here. It is so cold out. Why didn’t you call me?” Hoya pulled you in for a hug to try and warm you up.

“I couldn’t call you because I don’t have a phone. My family was too poor to buy me one before I came over seas to find a job. My car wouldn’t start because it is a poor car that I could barely afford as well.” Tears started to form in your eyes as he took your hands and breathed on them so they could be a little warmer than they were. He placed your hands into his pockets and escorted you to his car. He started to drive off to work and you embraced the warmth of his car and the kindness of his heart.

It was like any other day in dancing until it ended that you had to walk home now. You sat along a wall in the main lobby as you watched everyone pass you and go out to their cars. They were saying mean comments to your face and you couldn’t help but curl into a ball and sit there singing softly to calm yourself. The lobby had suddenly become desolate after a couple of hours. Nobody was around and the security guards were patrolling outside. You made yourself a little bed against the wall and fell asleep until the next morning. Singers, dancers, managers all walked by looking at you curled in a corner like a hobo. Placing judgments all over you as
they passed by not even trying to understand why you were there. A hand on your shoulder gently shook you back to reality. Hoya’s kneeled next to you as you awoke. Nobody was around you, just him. You sat up, rubbed your eyes and gathered all of your things together.

“Why were you here?” Hoya asked helping you clean up your belongings.

“I couldn’t contact you and I didn’t want to walk home under the cold falling snow. I also thought that it would save me a trip in the morning.” You watched Hoya’s face as he smirked at you. You both walked into the practice room together, Hoya placed all of your things in your normal spot. You went to go get changed since he was already in his when he went looking for you.

“Where were you?” One of the girls asked

“Probably with Hoya, he and she are like totally together.” Another girl commented

“Oh, did you like you-know.” Girls were now surrounding you pushing you out of the door. You managed to get your clothes on before they shoved you through the door exposing you to the rest of the crew and managers.

“I-I-I’m so sorry.” You stood up from the middle of the dance floor with everybody looking at you. You opened the door and ran down the hall. Everybody stood there and Hoya looked at the girls that acted surprised. Hoya opened the door and ran after you. You started to slow down your running when you heard someone coming up from behind you.

“________ wait!” Hoya yelled as you stopped before heading up the stairs. Hoya surrounded you in a hug and you let out all of your tears when he wrapped his arms around you. He tried to help you calm down but it was no use.

“What did they do to you?” Hoya asked when you were whimpering now

“They did e-everything to me. It hasn’t been easy to learn a new language, travel around the world, find a job, try to sustain yourself on no money, while still sending money back to your family who is barely eating in America. I can’t so anything right. I am only seventeen, I have a family that is counting on me to provide money for them and I cannot even eat when I am over here to save money. Now I have to get my car fixed…” You trailed off and started weeping again.

“You know I am here for you right?” Hoya said rubbing your head as you sobbed, you nodded your head and he held you even closer than before. His phone rang and he answered it after checking with you.

“What do you mean I have a fine?” Hoya started to get unglued,

“Just because I left practice to help a friend you are going to fine me?… Her as well? … Are you insane?… How much is the fine?…”Five thousand dollars!” Hoya hung up the phone and kissed the top of your head.

“Don’t worry I will take care of you and pay for your fine.”

The next couple weeks were hard on you and Hoya. Everyone excluded you because of what the managers had done and threatened them with. Sitting eating lunch together, he let you sleep in his apartment since your rent had run out and you couldn’t pay for another month, he was your guardian angel who was as lonely as you are.

Friendship needs no words – it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness

5 Luxurious Travel Essentials
Who doesn’t love to travel, right? And we need to have some travel essentials whenever we plan a trip. I am calling these items luxury because I do believe that all these items will make your day-to-day life, while you’re traveling, a little bit easier and will add some sort of luxury to your day. So, without further delay, let’s get into it! · Silk Sleepwear The first thing that I have to have with me while I’m traveling is luxurious and comfortable sleepwear. I always make sure that I pack some silk pajamas with me. The reason why I’m stressing over silk sleepwear is that generally when we are traveling, we do get very tired. While sightseeing, we walk a lot more than we usually do. So, the last thing I would want is to not sleep really well. Also, you can’t just predict how comfortable your hotel room is going to be. So, the least I could do is wrap myself with really comfortable silk sleepwear. It is anti-bacterial and quite good for your skin as well. · Foldable Change Tray I know it sounds strange to carry around a change tray with you when you’re traveling but it does make an amazing companion to your trip. The one that I have is made of leather and I use it at home as well. I feel more at home when I carry these small pieces with me. Whenever I have to come back to the hotel after traveling around, I take off all my jewelry and its bits and pieces. I always worry about losing things in the hotel or dropping them off from the side table. So, I use this change tray to put all my jewelry safe and secure and I know where to find them the next morning. · Affordable Sunglasses A pair that protects your eyes from the direct sunlight and looks stylish at the same time is a must to carry. Whenever you take traveling pictures, they add so much style and aura to your travel outfits. You need to protect your eyes because you will be outside most of the time. Don’t buy an expensive pair of sunglasses because there are chances that you end up losing them during your travel. So, carry an affordable pair. · Vanity Case My next travel essential is a vanity case or a toiletry case that is waterproof and also one that comes with a hook to hang on the wall. Whenever you are not sure how much space you’re going to have in your hotel’s bathroom, this is such a good item to take with you. There are many varieties of vanity cases available on sites like Shopify. So do check them out too! · Versatile Scarf/Shawl Whenever you are traveling, even if it is during summer, the weather can be a little bit unpredictable. I do find shawls or scarfs that can be worn in a lot of different ways, a lot more versatile than a cardigan or jacket. A scarf or shawl can be carried around very easily because they fold up really well, taking up the least space possible. So, these were my favorite travel essentials that I make sure to carry around every time I go on a trip. Hope you found them useful. Happy Traveling!

All-Time Best Movie Adaptations Based on Books
We all are big fans of movies and cinema, whether it is Bollywood content or Hollywood. Every year, we get to see some of the best movies ever made which win our hearts. We have higher expectations from movies that are adapted from some world-famous books. This hangs us on a thread as it made us think which one was better – movie adaptation or the original book? Well, it works both ways. People who are dedicated readers and read regularly prefer books over movies, and those who have a hard time reading books, enjoy movies more than anything! In this article, I’ll be listing down all-time best movie adaptations based on books. · The Color Purple (1985) ‘The Color Purple’ is written by a famous American novelist Alice Walker and its stellar adaptation is created by Steven Spielberg. This adaptation has done good justice and is extremely faithful to the original novel in terms of characters as well as the plot. Celie’s inner thoughts and emotions have become lively through the phenomenal performance of the cast, which is a great achievement for Steven Spielberg. Hence, it becomes a must-watch movie. · The Remains of the Day (1993) ‘The Remains of the Day’ is a beautiful novel by Kazuo Ishiguro and its adaptation is created by James Ivory. This story revolves around the character study which is told from an English butler named Stevens’ point of view. All the characters are presented in equal length throughout the film and all of these are rooted in the point of view of the protagonist Stevens. Although the ending of the movie is less hopeful and arguably tragic than the actual novel, it doesn’t feel left out and restrained with the whole story. Hence becoming a must-watch. · Forrest Gump (1994) Well, this one is my favorite from the list. ‘Forrest Gump’ is a novel by Winston Groom and its adaptation is created by Robert Zemeckis. This movie has won six Oscars in all, including the one for the Best Picture. The streamlined character is beautifully portrayed by Tom Hanks. This movie has taken strong source material and the result is in front of our eyes. Every viewer of this movie finds it charming as well as fill with wisdom. This makes this movie a must-watch in all senses. · Harry Potter (2002-2011) ‘Harry Potter’ is a novel series written by J. K. Rowling. It comprises various genres like Magical Realism, Adventure Fiction, Mystery, High Fantasy, Thriller, etc. This 8-films long movie series is directed by 4 directors namely Chris Columbus (Part 1 & 2), Alfonso Cuaron (Part 3), Mike Newell (Part 4), and David Yates (Parts 5 to 8). The movie adaptations have done complete justice to the novels, although the makers of the movie had to narrow down the story quite a bit. But we can surely say that these are the ideal adaptations for the fans who are looking for incredible content. So, it is a must-watch too. If you are looking forward to buying these books you can check out TrueGether, which is the best eBay alternative out there.
Reply 2015: Why Junhee was Gay
*BIG SPOILERS if you haven't seen Reply 1997 or Reply 1994!* ~~~~~~~~~~~~ Two high school boys are sitting near a basketball court on a summer night somewhere in Busan, South Korea, in 1997. “There’s someone else I like,” confesses Kang Junhee, turning to the boy next to him. “It’s you.” By this point, anyone watching Reply 1997 has fallen for Junhee’s charms, and is also aware that Junhee is not like the rest of the boys. He is not going to betray his friendship by falling in love with his best friend’s crush Shi Won. On the contrary, he’s going to fall in love with his best friend. Kang Junhee’s character is one of the most important characters of modern Korean dramas. In the midst of a changing cultural attitude towards homosexuality, his role shines an entirely new light on the image of gay men in Korea. I. Infinite Influence Hoya, of the idol group Infinite was a perfect choice for Kang Junhee. Hoya’s casting as Junhee was not only brilliant because of his surprisingly good acting skills (pardon my little faith in idols-turned-actors) but because of everything he brings with him to the role. To be honest, he was the reason I payed attention to this drama in the first place. Hoya has a strong fanbase and his group Infinite has endorsed everything from ice cream to chicken to school uniforms. With relatively few “cute” concepts, Infinite is one of the manlier boy bands in Korea, with Hoya fitting right in with his masculine image. Hoya has no damaging scandals tied to his name, and has risked everything for the life as an artist that he now lives. He followed his dreams of performing and has risen to a level of stardom that makes his parents proud. He is one of K-pop’s golden boys. Almost all of this fanbase will support his character without question, regardless of sexual orientation or personality. He has the incredible power of influence. If Hoya says something is acceptable, there is a large group of people that will undoubtably agree. This is the most important quality he brought with him to Reply 1997. II. The Perfection of Kang Junhee Hoya’s masculinity carries over to Junhee, an all around athlete who also happens to be fashionable, a great cook, and an even better dancer. The writers of this drama make him out to be the ideal man. Gay stereotypes in Korea are similar to the basic Western take on stereotypes. Gay men are portrayed as feminine and weak, often with higher pitched voices and limp wrists. How could Junhee, with all of his manly talents, possibly be a gay man? Junhee contains every character trait that an ideal Korean boy should have. He is intelligent and goes on to become a successful doctor. He is polite and charming to his elders. He is loyal, honest, and insightful, making him the best friend to have in tough situations. He is a good listener, puts others before himself, and gives fantastic advice. There is not a malicious bone in this boy’s body. His perfection seems too good to be true, and it is. He has one fatal flaw according to the Confucian society around him. He likes boys. While Junhee does seem more comfortable being in the kitchen and bonding with Shi Won’s mother over skin care advice, he is never made out to be an overly feminine or 'wussy' character. He is more mature than the other boys at school and seems to contain a wisdom far beyond his years. He is shown as the loyal and clear thinking friend. His sexuality isn’t the most important thing about him, it is overshadowed by his other fantastic characteristics. The script writers of Reply 1997 avoid falling into another stereotype for gay characters, which is over-sexualization. Junhee never tries to embrace Yunjae; he actually seems to avoid any physical contact. Their relationship is purely that of friends, although Yunjae hangs onto Junhee as if he is his personal plaything. Eventually, Junhee moves on, separating himself from his one-sided love. Junhee’s innocence makes him even more endearing to the audience. The only trait that someone could criticize Junhee for would be that he is far too nice, because we all know that the nice guy never wins in a Korean drama. Simply stated, Junhee does not have the qualities of a stereotypical gay man. This is why Bingrae, or Kim Dongjun, of Reply 1994 is so important. III. Bingrae: The Letdown? In Reply 1994, Baro plays the role of Kim Dongjun, who is known as Bingrae for most of the drama. Bingrae is a young boy from a farming family who has come to the big city to pursue a career as a doctor. He is enrolled in one of the best medical schools in the country, and has an instant group of friends in his boarding house. Even with all of these good things going for him, Bingrae stays in his room quietly reading anime or listening to cassettes. He doesn’t have a strong relationship with any of the people he lives with, and only seems comfortable around his cousin or food. He is nowhere near being an ideal man like Kang Junhee. Bingrae eventually drops out of school without telling anyone, and picks up part time jobs all over the city. This is where his storyline takes a turn, and throws him into the love octagon that is found in most Korean dramas. Sseuregi, or “Trash,” is the eldest boy in the boarding house. Although his personal hygiene is questionable at best, he is the perfect role model for Bingrae. Trash is on route to become a successful doctor and is completely comfortable with who he is. Bingrae, who already is uncomfortable and jumpy with others, can’t bring himself to treat Trash as a friend. He calls him sunbaenim, which is even more honorific than hyung. During these four years at the boarding house, Bingrae struggles to understand his feelings for the older boy. Trash decides to make Bingrae his dongsaeng, confiding in Bingrae that he has always wanted a little brother. Drinking games lead to a kiss between Trash and Bingrae, and Trash is constantly giving him special attention. Trash picks him up from work, buys him food, and pets him like a dog, even going so far as to call him Puppy throughout the drama. This unlikely couple had lots of fans, and many viewers were rooting for their success. With Bingrae’s uncertainty and shyness and Trash’s girlfriends, however, this pairing seemed doomed. Although they both struggled with understanding their love life, this mysterious and oftentimes withdrawn character is nothing like the confident Junhee of Reply 1997. IV. Why Bingrae Couldn’t Be Gay I have heard many fans of this drama complain about how Bingrae’s storyline ended in Reply 1994. An anonymous fan on Tumblr called it a great let down, and confessed that they never finished the drama because they were so upset. The reality is, if the writers had made Bingrae gay for the sake of having a gay character, they would have destroyed everything they had built with Junhee in Reply 1997. Bingrae is confused and unsure about every aspect of his life. He is unsure of what he wants to do in the future, of who his friends are, and especially of his own sexuality. He drops out of school, lies to his parents, and has no outstanding talents. Junhee is confident and comfortable with who he is. He has to hide his feelings from his friends and family, but he never questions them. He is hardworking, naturally talented, and undeniably charming. The ending that upset many fans of the Bingrae and Trash couple was very well thought out. In the episode that finally reveals Bingrae’s sexuality, the audience gets a sense of déjà vu. Bingrae steps out from the reunion party to meet a mysterious someone. As he waits at the curb for a car to pull up, the audience remembers the final episode of Reply 1997. After the reunion party as Junhee and the original gang of characters start to head home, Yunjae’s wife and Junhee’s childhood friend Shi Won offers him a ride home. Junhee smiles and declines, explaining that someone is coming for him. Junhee waits at the curb and gets into the flashy red sports car that comes to pick him up. The script writers kept the identity, and gender, of the driver completely ambiguous. There was never any confirmation of whether Junhee ends up with a man or woman. The audience finds itself blinded by headlights again in Reply 1994 as Bingrae stares down the street waiting for his special someone. Suddenly, the red sports car appears. The audience remembers where they have seen this scene before. As the sports car zooms past him, we are given an explanation of not only his sexuality, but of Junhee’s as well. V. The Key is in the Car Although Reply 1997 fans had to wait until the end of Reply 1994 for an answer, I loved the way the writers subtly tell the audience that Junhee was in fact, gay. The car that Junhee hops in at the end of Reply 1997 signifies his homosexuality, and it speeds by Bingrae as his wife pulls up in another car. The writers never had to say anything about Junhee’s relationships and that is what makes it so important. If Bingrae did not end up in a heterosexual relationship at the end of Reply 1994, the writers would not have been able to give this insight into Junhee’s life. With the sports car as a metaphor for homosexuality, the writers make being gay a completely normal way of life. The car passes Bingrae without causing a fuss and there is no dramatic music or lighting as Junhee gets in his sports car. Being gay is as natural as the cars passing you on the street and is not something that needs to be made into a big deal. That car, or that sexual orientation, simply was not for Bingrae, and saying this in such a natural, subtle way is incredibly important for the gay community. VI. Korean Attitude The gay community is still very much underground in Korea. In an Ipsos poll, 79% of South Korean participants said that they do not have a family member, friend, or coworker that is gay, bisexual, or transgender. Reply 1997 had an incredible following, with its last episode having the highest viewer rating ever for a drama produced by a cable network. The audience was mostly made up of men and women from their teens to their 40s, showing that the show had a wide range of viewers. The timing of these dramas was absolutely crucial. Just before the airing of Reply 1994, Korea experienced its first same-sex marriage. Legally, South Korea does not recognize marriage between same-sex couples, but that did not stop Kim Jo Gwang Su from marrying his long time partner Kim Seunghwan on May 15, 2013. The wedding was purely ceremonial, and their request to register for marriage was denied. The marriage opened up country-wide discussions about gay rights in Korea, and new legislation is being proposed by facets of the Korean government. The good news is, from 2007 to 2013, South Korea is the nation with the most significant change in opinion on the matter of gay rights. According to a poll through Pew Research, the belief that homosexuality should be accepted jumped 21% in six years. The same poll reports that 71% of South Koreans from 18 to 29 years of age support gay rights, showing a positive shift in society. With the open discussions and diverse viewership of dramas such as Reply 1997 and Reply 1994, I have faith that South Korea will continue in a positive direction towards equality for all sexual orientations. The work of the scriptwriters for these two dramas made their characters real, relatable, and relevant. It may be completely unconscious, but the Korean audience is being exposed to gay men not as forbidden lovers, but as friends, sons, and students. They are portrayed as human beings. Kang Junhee and Kim Bingrae are indispensable to Korea’s fight for gay rights.
Kpop Relatables for every Kpop fan. You do this too, don't lie.
Hey everyone! In honor of today being my birthday starting.. 3 hours ago, I have decided to post these relatable and fun kpop pictures I have found and wanted to share with you all. I wanted to make sure you all got a couple laughs and know that you are absolutely not alone in this community. I just found some of these while I was looking up kpop things( like I always do) and stumbled upon them. Thank you all for always being there and tagging me in things i may like. It always makes me feel wanted and like I'm part of something which is something I have always wanted. If any of you ever want to talk or let me know what you want me to post about, you can always message me or comment, my inbox is always open!! Enjoy guys!!! I'm pretty sure most, if not all of us have done this at one point or another. Even I did it yesterday when I watched the end of the dance for EOEO by Uniq when they are grinding on the floor- yes I literally said "I wish I could be that floor." This is true in a lot of ways. Having a bias sometimes does seem better than having a boyfriend. Having a bias as a boyfriend would be AMAZING!! But also I've set my boyfriend bar so high to match my bias, so that's one reason I will never have a relationship. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ! Am I the only one that does this? Ah eye smiles. They hit you right in the feels! The eye smile isn't iconic just because our idols are so adorable when they do it (although it is a big part of it) but it's that they happiness that shows on their face that makes their smiles huge and their eyes sink away to tiny adorable slits. Haha. I think we can all agree eye smiles are dangerous, heart melting things. Who do you think has the best eye smiles in kpop? ^ㅅ^ This couldn't be more true to me. What people who aren't kpop fans don't understand is, we have all joined together and not just became friends and fellow fans, but we have also become a family who support each other and each other's fandoms. Yet another statement that couldn't be more true. Before kpop, I wouldn't have met so many people both here and outside of the Vingle kpop community. Before someone mentions they like kpop i find it hard to take a lot of interest in them but once the word kpop comes up, I break into my kpop loving self. And a lot of the time, we become friends and continue to stretch kpop love across the world. These quotes just make me smile and are over all inspirational to me. I really enjoy how wise and knowledgable our idols are. They are more than people may think. I've heard people say, "yeah they are good at singing and dancing, but that's all they are good for." But we all know that's not true. Our idols rank high in sports, school, languages, performing and so much more, which makes me happy when I read these amazing words they say in their music and in real life. Being a kpop fan takes a special kind of person. We are able to look past the language barriers, the distance, the age differences, the unnecessary and sometimes hurtful remarks from others and still support and love continue to love Kpop and idols with all our hearts. No matter how hard it may be to be a kpop fan, international or not, we still stick it out and support that Hallyu wave all the way!!! As I said before, we have some of the most wise people as idols. This quote from CL makes me incredibly happy and I couldn't have said this better myself. I get bashed all the time by people I don't know, non-kpop friends and even my family always saying there is no point to listening to music that you can't understand, but what they don't understand is music truly IS universal. You don't have to know the words to a song to be able to jam to it. Honestly, since I'm so used to kpop, even though I can't understand what they are saying, it doesn't seem like a foreign language to me. So there is no point to the hating on kpop music and it's fans, because to us, we can enjoy the music just fine without knowing the words. And we are proud of it!! And yes, I have thought about this a lot before. My parents don't really get why I like kpop, but I even said to them, "it could be worse, I could be drinking, doing drugs, partying and hooking up with guys like most kids my age." But I don't really do that. My social life is just a relationship between me and my cell phone. And all of you of course. I really gotta get out more, but I like staying in and doing nothing. Who else has had this problem where your family just really doesn't get that this is a good thing and you could be doing MUCH worse things? This is just a relatable kpop thing that I thought many of you would know about and have also done. There are so so so many pictures of my biases on my phone of the EXACT SAME PICTURE!! I just never know if I had saved it or not. There are times where I'm like "I know for a fact that I have seen this picture," so I screenshot it and when I go through all of my pictures later on, It turns out I have seen it before (a few times apparently) and thought the same thing back then too, so I have multiples of the same pics. These are just things I feel that I want to happen just because I am a fangirl and I do honestly think I can end up with my bias someday. It's true. There have been times where I needed to focus on my studies so I tried to leave the kpop world and I couldn't even do it for a day, let alone forever. Kpop is just to Fantastic to even try to leave. Once we got you, you ain't ever gonna be able to leave. You're in for life. I've done it. I bet some of you have too. Kpop does take over your world, but it's actually a good thing. Since I became a kpop fan, my life has become better and I've met some really good and dependable people who can relate to me as well. Fangirling is my job though, besides my actual job... Yeah, international fans can relate. Being an international fan, you learn to make it work. One of the things we must make work is the distance and knowing we won't be able to see concerts unless we watch the fancams. And even though it's hard sometimes, fancams are fun to watch because there are so many from so many different angles and shows that it makes being an international fan easier. Find your bias idols and groups! Let me know who is your favorite!! The light stick oceans. "Only in kpop can you see the different colors of the ocean" I love kpop oceans; they are a life goal of mine, and I really hope to get to be in one one day. What about you guys? Have you been in a light stick ocean before? Which ones if so, and if not whose would you want to be in most? And lastly, the things that connect us are not only how crazy we are, but that we are all crazy together. Kpop has the ability to bring different people together and give them something in common that most people can never relate to. It makes me really happy when I randomly think about the people I have met from being into kpop and the thing I have learned. Since I started listening to kpop and learning about korea in general I've learned to be more considerate of people and to try and understand people more for what they like and not judge them for it. Kpop has absolutely changed my life for the better and I can't and don't want to imagine what my life would be like without it.
