Always have since I was a kid.
Always have since I was a kid.
I’ve read the rumor about Luhan and Kris being invited to the Chinese Version of We Got Married called, If We’re In Love, which is said to be casting celebrities from both China and Taiwain (it’s not a good thing to say, “If” in such trivial matters =P). Khuntoria, aka the pairing between 2PM‘s Nichkhun and f(x)‘s Victoria, are also said to be making a guest appearance on the show.
Before I begin the discussion on We Got Married, I’m going to briefly talk about my post, “Nice Guy”/”Innocent Man”, EXO at MAMA 2013, Hair Clip, Telepathy…, and Weekend Summary, which I had closed down due to many of my thoughts and feelings in there that were likely being used as “ideas” by SM Entertainment (SME). I will go into details about it in another post, though.
If the inspiration for Ace isn’t enough to convince one that SME does lurk around the blogs of fans for “ideas” to be used, then I don’t know what will (first see this post, EXO Kris’ “Mysterious” Pet and Other Cute Traits, and then see this post, Introduction of EXO’s New Member: Ace Wu (My New Bias). Compare the “intellectual” puppy’s appearance with Ace and even the description for it. Also note that the former post was published before Ace was even seen by fans). >_< Since nobody knows who gave Kris, Ace, and that it is likely to be SME themselves, then the mother of Ace can only mean the originator of the “idea”…and the “idea” only points to my blog! =P
There was a discussion in the post, “Nice Guy”/”Innocent Man”, EXO at MAMA 2013, Hair Clip, Telepathy…, and Weekend Summary, about finding “the one”, or “other half”, and marriage. In the comments section, I even “painfully” said that there are photos that I’ve seen of some female Chinese celebs. that would look great with Kris, and for some reason, I had a bad feeling about saying that. >_<
I was only being modest because a friend had commented that Kris and I would be well-suited. LOL. My modesty…what has it done!? I should have listened to by gut feeling, ’cause now I have to hear a rumor about Kris starring in the Chinese version of We Got Married. *smacks head*
Please, I take back whatever I’ve said. I, and on the behalf of my fellow fans, object to Luhan and Kris starring on We Got Married for the purpose of being paired with someone. We, instead, would rather see them get married in real life, and would be more than happy to celebrate their real marriage. ^^’
Also, if I think more deeply about the show, Kris has an international background and would suit the global version in comparison to the Chinese version. It’s exciting to see a pair that have lived in a multicultural environment, but are from two completely different cultures at the same time.
Furthermore, rather than having to see a wedding that includes a white dress and a formal suit, it would be interesting to see a wedding that has traditional elements to it as well. There’s so much that can be done with We Got Married, but I’m not even going to share my ideas, ’cause I know from my experience now that it’s not good to share “ideas” on the Internet when SOMEONE lurks around.
Too bad Kris can’t see a Pakistani/Indian wedding… tsk tsk tsk. Weddings play a major part in Pakistani/Indian culture. It’s like the highlight of our culture. xD In fact, I think that’s the only thing left of Pakistani culture these days. =P
Thank God, I haven’t mentioned anything on my blog about picturing my dream wedding, otherwise SME would most likely take that and use it on Kris and his “wife”, while I sit and watch my heart shatter to pieces watching them live out my dream. >_< I bet that’s how evil they are.
On a side note, since Kris‘ “cool” image kind of flew out the door after EXO Showtime…maybe SME wants to recover it by promoting him with a romantic image. Ever thought of that? =P
Well, sorry… I’m the romantic one. Look at all my blog posts on him. Did I get anything in return? NO! Instead, I had things taken from my blog posts, including the “idea” for Kris‘ son called Ace Wu. If there were fans that had blog posts on me, I would be showering them with my love…UNLIKE Kris. =P
It’s funny enough that SME has taken things from my blog to promote Kris. Relying on a fan girl’s blog…an innocent girl that’s almost half the size of Kris. Be ashamed! Is this how you treat the mother of Ace? >_<
Personally speaking, out of all the Chinese members of EXO, Lay would suit being on We Got Married because he appears to have the personality for it, and has already expressed an interest in being featured on the show. Not to mention, he can also “heal” people, including their hearts… UNLIKE Kris, ’cause he broke my heart several times and hasn’t even realized it.
Having said that, Kris really is a bad guy. The face doesn’t lie. He says, “Love me always,” but he doesn’t “love me always”. That’s why I was thinking of placing several derp photos of him in the post, EXO’s Kris Wu – The “Mysterious” Member, so that people that stumble across it on Google would say, “Eeeek!” xD Just kidding!
Now, if we were to think more rationally, it’s a little too early to put any of the members of EXO on We Got Married. SME needs to keep in mind that their target market primarily consists of young teens, who are more interested in seeing the members display their talent in music and dancing, rather than being paired with someone.
Also, it doesn’t make sense to have the members on the show when they’re already busy preparing for their up-coming album, the promotions for it, and other offers that they have. Then again, maybe the people of the show don’t really care about what the fans think, and are more interested in the number of viewers that they can get and the amount of money that they can make.
I saw this quote reblogged on Tumblr at the right time:
Money also blurs the line between truth and lie; simplicity and greed. It can break ties. It can break hearts. —Megan Rivera
“It can break hearts.” The entertainment industry has always been built upon money…and I guess this is why one should avoid falling for a celebrity. >_<
If I were to take myself into account, I don’t even watch We Got Married in the first place. Even if Kris were to star in it, I wouldn’t watch it. There are people around me that are already getting married in REAL, so seeing a scripted marriage is useless. =P Plus, it’s not like I’m the one that is marrying him, so what would I do while watching the show? Say, “Aww,” when it’s not even real? Puh-lease! Maybe if he was getting married in real, I would have shared my happiness. =P
In such a case, I’m going to follow the words of Chris (he’s a person that I met through work), “Entertainment adds no value to my life…” He’s quite inspirational when it comes to productivity in life. Plus, he thinks I’m funny…UNLIKE Kris. xD
On the other hand, if I imagine myself as a K-Pop star and ever getting an offer for star on We Got Married, my response would be, “Sorry, but I’m saving my romantic side for my future husband.” That’s what you call having respect for your significant other. ^^ Now that I think about it, there was one K-Pop star that had an awesome comment about We Got Married. He said that he would rather get married in real than be on the show. I agree infinity%!
P.S. All photos here are drawings by Kris, which I have edited.
Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen
They talk of days for which they sit and wait and all will be revealed
Kashmir – one of my favorite songs by Led Zeppelin! I found the above lyrics in one of my old Facebook statuses.
I’m also a fan of Corner Stone Cues whose music is sometimes incorporated for movie trailers. Their orchestra/choir/percussion version of Kashmir called 10 Years Kashmir is nice (click here to listen). The part from 6:22 onwards in the song is amazing. It makes me feel like it could be used for a battle scene.
When I also look at the photo used in the video for Corner Stone Cues, I feel like teleporting myself there. So dreamy!
I was going through my old statuses on Facebook and I found quite a few interesting ones that included lyrics of songs that I used to listen to a few years ago. One of the lyrics was from the song Horse and I by Bat for Lashes that I had posted around five years ago.
On a side note, the singer is half-British half-Pakistani. Another great song of hers is Daniel, and the inspiration for it came from the movie The Karate Kid. She liked the character in it when she was young, so she made a song on him. =P It was her first song that I listened to as well.
A very powerful ad. by Save the Children. It depicts how London would be like if it encountered the same conflict that Syria is currently facing.
“Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening.” Exactly!
I remember having to work on an assignment on Syria back in October-November 2012. It was related to citizen journalism of the conflict that took place over there. Reading the news made me very depressed. The conflict still hasn’t ended.
Praying for the people of Syria.
P.S. I’ll mention why I made my blog private later on, iA.
MAMAMOO (ft. Bumkey)‘s Don’t Be Happy is a bit of a mushy song, but I appreciate it for its quality. I’ve had it on repeat ever since I discovered it.
I haven’t gotten bored of Korean R&B/Hip-Hop and Korean Indie yet. I still find it refreshing to listen to. Old K-Pop is refreshing too… still love the melody and beats of the hit songs. ^^
I’ve been wanting to say something for a while. I think I’ve slowly gotten over K-Pop. I was looking forward to SNSD and 2NE1‘s comeback, and I do pay a bit of attention to the senior groups, but in general…it’s like I woke up one day and found out that I’m not interested anymore. Maybe I feel disappointed about something? I’m not sure.
The music doesn’t catch my attention as much anymore, I feel bored watching an MV, the stars look like normal people…normal people that only associate themselves with people that are like them, or that they knew from before.
I feel a great sense of disconnection, and I can’t explain it very well, ’cause it’s more of a feeling than a thought. I’m still surprised that I’ve been a fan of a person, or had someone as my ultimate bias, for two years as well.
The only reason I stuck around, despite the fact that there may have been a few things about my bias that may have not gotten on my positive side, is ’cause some things that turned into reality starting from EXO‘s teaser era seemed strange to me… including some of my dreams.
However, what if these very same things are leading me into some kind of black hole? EXO is the sole reason I started blogging again, but now I’m starting to think that I should step back for a while.
I guess when I get excited about something, there’s a sudden burst of energy, but then when I start to feel like something that I’m doing is useless, I get tired and start to re-evaluate what’s going on. I mentioned this about myself in a post a long time ago.
Maybe I’ve just gotten tired of being a fan… I’m also a tad-bit upset by one of the “behind-the-scenes facts” of Kris‘ childhood friend thinking of fans as greedy. I know that we should take these sort of “facts” with a grain of salt, but just in case this is true… I have to mention that the greedy ones aren’t the fans, but the ones that are making money out of fans. Think about the one whose goal is profit.
What fans do is something that they do out of love… and it’s this love that gets used by K-Pop companies for the purpose of generating profit. I admit that I’m not happy with it. I am human, not a person with a $ sign, and neither are any of the other fans.
P.S. It’s okay if I lose followers for this post (it only indicates that some people were more interested in me talking about Kris/EXO than actually interested in me as a person…that’s what I realized since long ago as a blogger, so I don’t take it to heart). If you put yourself in my shoes, you would see things differently, though. There are some things that you would be surprised to discover (please note that I don’t hate any K-Pop group or a specific member of a group…they’re just doing what they’re told. This is simply my take on K-Pop’s role as a business).
One of my favorite video game soundtracks… This is what I’ve been listening to these days. It brings back memories of when I used to play Chrono Cross.
It’s hard to choose a specific track from Chrono Cross as my favorite, but if I did have to choose one or two it would be Time’s Scar, and Magical Dreamers ~ The Wind, Stars, and Waves, which starts at 2:08:40.
