1. Your opinion on the kpop industry in general
I feel like the debuts are multiplying at some kinda crazy rate. Like, more groups and artists making their debuts faster than how things were before. If that makes sense? I feel like competition for fame, as a result, is much more intense. I guess one the one hand you can argue that competition is good/healthy because it encourages progression/improvement… but on the other hand, I do worry about the physical and mental well-being of everyone, as a result of this. I mean, these artists are so young, and that is SO MUCH PRESSURE. A lot of pressure. Like you have to draw the line somewhere, you know? Sometimes I want to give little daily reminders to the management companies that they’re not going to make money if their artists crumble under the weight of it all.
2. Favourite group and why?
I’m not particularly good at choosing favorites, usually… XD I have two favorites, because I said. TVXQ was one of first groups to get me into Kpop, and for that they’ll always have a very special place in my musical heart. In my opinion the boys all have these seriously AMAZING, powerhouse voices, and getting them together is like opening the gates to some kind of vocal harmony orgasm Heaven. I mean, I love them all individually, but get them all doing acapella together and I AM DONE. JEEBUS. Still holding out faith that we’ll get all 5 of them together, again… in my head JYJ is still every bit TVXQ. I don’t care what the paperwork says. And later on down the line I ended up getting really into Bigbang. REALLY into Bigbang. And when it comes to them, it’s all about presence, I think. The five of them are pretty different people, each with their own appeal, but when they come together they make some really powerful stuff happen~ They also tend to come across as… I don’t know, “delightfully eccentric.” They’ve never been all that afraid of being different, or not being the industry standard, does that make sense? When they were pre-debut and in their early debut days they met a lot of resistance, from what I remember. Lots of cries that they were too weird and too ugly… But they persevered, and really came out on top for it. I admire that in them.
3. Boy bands or girl groups?
Bothhhhhhhhh~! I don’t think I could ever be exclusively into boy bands or exclusively into girl groups. I admit openly that I gravitate more toward boy bands because of physical interest, but girl groups are empowering for me, as a female, in a way that boy bands aren’t based simply on the fact that they’re male, whereas I’m not.
4. Cute or Sexy?
It reallyyyyyy depends on my mood, but in a perfect world it’s a blend of both. If you can pull of being just the right amount of cute and sexy at the same time, you win all of the awards~
5. Favourite rookie group this year
Mmmmmmm… Winner hasn’t debuted yet so technically it would be incorrect to call them a rookie group, right? ~Cries a little~ I’m really feeling Got7, though.
6. 5 words that describe yourself
Sunny, Thoughtful, Eccentric, Creative… Foodie. XD
7. Something weird you do when no ones around
Pace. A lot. It helps me think.
8. 5 favourite things
Food, Writing, Performing Arts, Beaches… the “Creepycute.” XD
9. Write something in a language that’s not English
사랑해요 재중오빠 (Oh my God I forgot to copypaste my answer to this - I wrote this in a word document because Tumblr likes to eat my longer posts; HERE’S what I actually wrote: 知りません～)
10. List your biases:
Yoochun, G-Dragon, Krystal, Taemin, CL, Hyuna (My bias list is kinda short I guess; that’s because I actually find it really hard to pick a bias. Even among the ones I listed there’s some room for change. Yoochun or Junsu? Taemin or Onew? CL or Minzy? And I probably change my Bigbang bias, changing out between all 5, every other week or so. I have a problem. XD)
11. Ideal type:
Somebody warm, who’s not afraid to look like a fool, who’s not afraid to be different from the rest, and who can hold me together whenever I need to stitch myself back up (I don’t need someone to fix me, I need someone who will support me while I fix myself).
Here are the rules:
1: Always post the rules.
2: Answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, and write 11 new ones.
3: Tag 11 people and link them to the post.
4: Actually tell them you tagged them.

Thank you so much for tagging me!
I REMEMBER THIS THING; I HAVE DONE IT BEFORE! XD But I’ll do it again, because it’s been a long time, watashisan~
01.) If you can live in any location during any period in history, where would you be and what year is it?
Yessssss when I did this thing last time, this was a question I had made, but like NOBODY answered it. XD But ANYWAY, for myself, I would want to live in precolonial Aklan/Akean, in what we now know as the Philippines. Seriously the precolonial culture was so, so rich and beautiful, but so much of it is LOST because of colonization, and as someone who likes to try and reach back into my ethnic history (I’m half-Filipina; my Mama is from Banga, Aklan), it’s rather disheartening. So that’s something I would want to experience - the Visayas region before they were colonized. I’m not sure what year… Magellan showed up in 1521, so I’m thinking that I could either stick myself in 1500 (and therefore be aware of his landing on the shore and uh… being killed), or I could go even further back to 1400 and live a life fully devoid of Western influence. It’s a tough call…
02.) What’s your favorite mythical/fantasy animal?
I fluctuate between mermaids and/or kataw, or werewolves. If you mean something PARTICULARLY animal-like and not humanoid in any way, then probably Bakunawa.
03.) What song/music is stuck in your head at the moment?
Taeyang - Love You To Death
04.) Favorite planet in our Solar System?
… Please let me say Pluto. You’re not gonna let me say the Sun, because the Sun is a star, so please let me say Pluto. Even if Pluto got booted from the lineup. Please. (If I HAVE to choose from the official planetary lineup, then I choose Venus.)
05.) If you had a choice of ANY flavor of ice cream, what would you choose?
That’s EASY. Mint Chocochip!
06.) What time of day do you usually check tumblr? (not ALL THE TIME, I hope?? ;P )
I don’t really have a set time… just, whenever I might HAVE some free time. It comes in these weird, sporadic bursts, usually around times that I’m eating either breakfast or lunch (or brunch if I skipped breakfast), and during any unwinding times at home.
07.) Do you have any phobias? If so, what are they?
I don’t know that it’s an outright phobia, but I’ve always had an issue with the concept of losing my voice. I don’t know why, exactly. I think it’s more about me losing a mode of expression than anything else… (Also, I might be a mermaid.)
08.) Welcome to my cafe! Coffee or tea? And what flavor will it be?
Usually I take tea, green with honey. But if I’m in the mood for coffee then it’s either a white chocolate mocha (frapp if it’s hot out), or a caramel macchiato. Again, as a frapp if it’s hot out.
09.) What is your opinion on Rule 34 (if it exists, there’s porn of it)?
IIIIIIIIII don’t exactly have any opinion on Rule 34? I mean, I agree that it is very real. If it’s being applied to material originally catering to children, then there should be filters or appropriate warnings put in place so that it can be avoided… Actually, scratch that. There should be filters and warnings regardless of whether the original material was geared toward children. That’s just polite, really. XD But as long as that’s done, to each their own. (Also also please to not be literal filmed child pornography, obviously. But I feel like that should be an obvious, there. It’s a consent issue.)
10.) Pick a class: Mage, Fighter, Sword, or Healer?
Sword as in Assassin? Like a “sword for hire” kind of a thing? Well I guess it doesn’t matter because I’d probably wanna be a Paladin. Then I would have both fighter capabilities AND some mage capabilities.
11.) SERIOUS BONUS QUESTION: CESARE OR JUAN? (EVEN IF YOU DONT CARE, JUST PICK ONE!)
I think my heart just shredded a little. XD I’m going to go with Cesare, though if you show me Juan saying that he’s been in pain for all of his years, let me tell you, I’m going to give that stupid jerk a big hug, a punch to the nose, and then I’m gonna detox the shit out of him. XD
OKAY SO HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS, MOST OF THEM LIFTED FROM THE LAST TIME I DID THIS BECAUSE NOBODY ANSWERED THEM. XD
1) If you could have your way, would you be an early bird or a night owl?
2) What’s your favorite fungi?
3) What do you see yourself doing 10 years from now?
4) Sacrifice a loved one for the safety of many, or sacrifice many for the safety of a loved one?
5) If you could time travel, would you go forward or backward?
6) Do you get easily bored?
7) Ghosts or Aliens?
8) If you could speak only one language for the rest of your life which language would you choose?* (This was originally the “What’s your favorite historical period and location?” question, but the rules are to make 11 NEW questions, so…)
9) Would you rather be blind, deaf, or unable to speak?
10) Perpetual spring or perpetual autumn?
11) Would you choose immortality, if you could?

I’m in a yaoi animu… but I’m female.
I guess I’m not getting laid, then? (By contrast, the Honey is in a harem animu so he’ll have TONS of opportunities to get laid. Jerk. XD)
ESTP: super attractive physically but it’s all downhill from there. never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible. somehow still lovable.
ESTJ: loud, logical, and get shit done — they are the warrior class of the life rpg. power stats make them unbeatable and if you encounter one, maybe just curl up and forfeit, to save time.
ESFP: giggly little shits. fun fun fun till her daddy takes the t-bird away. great for lifting your mood, not that great at lifting your credit score.
ESFJ: too appropriate, totally lacking in awkwardness. they’ll never forget your birthday, which will make you feel like shit when you constantly forget theirs.
ENTP: excellent companions if you enjoy people who instantly see through all your shit. very clever and very intuitive, you can’t fool them. i suggest you invest in other friends — ones you *can* fool.
ENTJ: impatient with people who make mistakes, namely, everyone. they’ll respect you if you stand up to them but why do that when you can run away instead. cuddle them and see what happens. i’m curious.
ENFP: too puppy to live. best suited for the profession of musical nanny. not advised for use around an open flame.
ENFJ: way too charming and capable, maybe they should stop making everyone else look bad. prone to making other people care about stuff they didn’t want to care about. so annoying.
ISTP: such butts. best suited for an apocalypse scenario, if no such scenario exists, they will create danger because they get bored. don’t encourage them, but don’t discourage them, as reverse psychology works too well.
ISTJ: low drama and low maintenance, best value at this price tier. best suited to actual human existence. least weird, which makes them kinda weird.
ISFP: squishy little darlings you might want to keep in your pocket, but please don’t or they will become forlorn. they notice everything, and it’s unnerving.
ISFJ: quietly and proudly do things for others. if you have a ring you need to deliver to mordor, take an ISFJ along with you for best results.
INTP: cute intergalactic spiders you want to hug and mistrust. prone to making you laugh but then days later you will wonder whether you were the butt of the joke.
INTJ: major dicks and kinda proud of it. prone to being right. prone to liking trance music way too much. all the ones i’ve ever met have been unexpectedly kinky. so i guess, expectedly.
INFP: they fall out of the sky and are raised by unicorns. if you feed one it will follow you home. they dissipate in water.
INFJ: chameleons appropriating your emotions and going quietly mad. prone to meltdowns and needing lots of naps.
Oh I remember. XD
As per an email I had marked out with a little star, Az and Zeph are both ISTJ, so they’re “least weird which makes them kinda weird” and “best suited to actual human existence” despite not being human or even spending all that much time with humans. They should go hang out in Assiah for a while because I guess they’d do fine there. XD
Nema and Uriel are both INFJ so I guess they’re “chameleons appropriating your emotions,” “prone to meltdowns???” XD I dunno, guys, I dunno. “Prone to meltdowns” works for them (especially seeing as Uriel’s got a quiet but explosive fuse when tapped, and Layers!Nema says it very succinctly) but I don’t see either of them as APPROPRIATING others’ emotions…???
Michael’s an ESTP, and I feel like it’s accurate all around. XD Especially the “never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible” and the “somehow still lovable” oh my God. SOMEHOW. SOMEHOW he’s still lovable, but fuck if anybody knows why. XD
Annnnd Lucifer’s an ENTJ, and the whole “they’ll respect you if you stand up to them but why do that when you can run away instead” is so perfect. XD
Mostly, though, I enjoy mine the most. “ENFJ: way too charming and capable, maybe they should stop making everyone else look bad. prone to making other people care about stuff they didn’t want to care about. so annoying.” BASICALLY I AM ANNOYING BECAUSE I AM PERFECT. YES, I AGREE WITH THIS. XD
