monsta x's “DRAMARAMA” dance practices: group + focus versions



FOCUS VERSIONS: shownu | wonho | minhyuk | kihyun | hyungwon | jooheon | i.m

“dramarama” def isn't my fave dance of theirs but it's so different of their usual—it moves away from the usual heavy emphasis on group formations, imho—so i wonder if ultimately mx'll be switching it up. i also didn't notice how much wonho slimmed down until this video...

RM Gets More Explicitly LGBT-Inclusive with J-14's Liam McEwan

In an interview last week on the AMAs red carpet with J-14's Liam McEwan, RM made a statement that caught some fans' attention for his deliberate inclusion of LGBTQIAP+ people. I've transcribed it the line in question (starting ~0:39 in the video) here because the video won't embed, but I highly recommend clicking the link in this tweet to watch the whole interview:

McEwan: Why is love such an important message for this era?

RM: You know, I think, we feel like there’s too many hate, and, you know, like bad things going on in this like all the world, not just in Korea or in America, so I think love, you know, not just between the men and women or, you know, or genders, I mean love, for, you know, just for others, and of course the most important thing is loving yourself, so I think love is the key for the reconciliation and integration for all the society.

Jin's Hollywood Crush is Brad Pitt | (When) We Don't Have a Boyfriend or Girlfriend

This clearly isn't very new, but I haven't seen it posted and think it's important because it's much clearer than that previous comment RM made that everyone flailed about. It's also a pretty good little interview, and we should all give Liam props for bringing up Unicef!

"Untouchable" Preview + Synopsis



Jin Goo stars as the second son of the powerful and wealthy Jang family, and when he loses his wife due to their meddling, he decides to find out the truth of her death and take revenge on those who took her away from him, even if they are family. Kim Sung-kyun plays his older brother, the first son, who has had to shed his morals to survive in his glittering world full of intrigue and backstabbing. The two brothers engage in a toxic battle, as one tries to uncover the truth and one tries to hide it to survive.

In order to climb the career ladder, Jung Eun-ji doesn’t refuse morally nebulous offers from influential figures. But when she becomes involved in helping Jin Gu with his wife’s case, she changes and starts toward the side of justice. But it’s the opposite trend for Go Jun-hee’s character, who is a former president’s daughter who has had sky-high dreams for ultimate power. She was stopped from pursuing her desires by the glass ceiling because she is a woman, and so although she falls for Jin Goo’s character, she marries Kim Sun-kyun to make a more favorable alliance.

Untouchable premieres Friday, November 24 on JTBC.
