…you…think they…WHAT?

solo stans are fucking terrifying. i don’t mean “people who aren’t into BTS as a whole but enjoy $MEMBER_NAME’s solo work”; those people are fine, valid, and normal, or even people who have a bias (i mean, hi? Joonie fangirl here, forever and always). i mean these psychotic weirdass fuckers on twxtter who think that their oppars would even give them the time of day if they heard the way they talked about their bandmates. like, admittedly these people all share a single braincell and lack both literacy and reading comprehension, but fucking still. they are so, so desperate to believe (or convince other people) that the members all hate each other, when it’s like…have you…not watched one goddamn interview with your preferred member? ever? at all? they all have matching tattoos, ffs. these goddamn creepy solo sasaengs are worse than the worst-behaved ARMY on the planet, and anyone who’s spent three minutes talking Bangtan (or just kpop) with me knows how very little time i have for misbehaving ARMY.

yeah, it’s a sweary entry about my damn kpop boy group. that’s the best i can do at the moment, sorry.
also the solos really, really give me the heebie-fucking-jeebies in big heaps.

endless chasing

song of the day: “Closer”, RM (w/ Paul Blanco and Mahalia). very chill and smooth shade of blue off of his latest, Indigo, which i’m finally getting around to listening to. first thoughts? it’s not as instant a love as mono. was for me, but it’s damn good all the same. i know joonie said it was “10 Blues” in the liner notes & box art, but really, it’s a much wider palette than his previous record, and has a kind of…tanginess? (synæsthesia is gonna be the death of me)…that was present in RM, but isn’t exactly the same kind of taste, as such, either. love love love to hear his singing voice, too, which only improves the more and more he uses it ♥ (don’t be afraid of singing, you beautiful coffee-smooth baritone, you!)

tonight I don’t wanna be sober

i’m finally in an okay enough headspace to listen to kpop that isn’t only very recent MAMAMOO tracks (long story, i might explain in a separate entry) and i’m digging into Mochimin’s first solo offering, “FACE”, and…i’m only up to “Like Crazy” and my jaw’s already on the fwcking floor. there is so much…like…jagged, black-silk-elegance to it? it’s like throwing back a shot of the most expensive vodka you’ve ever had, and then walking out into the city night with your jaw set. i just. holy shit, Jiminie. holy shit. it’s like…”Lie” from Wings seen through a black glass. and yes, my synaesthesia is going mad right now.

(also, i’ll say it: Park Jimin has a very strange voice. does this mean it isn’t astonishingly holographically beautiful? not even. not even one bit.)
