pining is 100000% the most important aspect of pre-relationship fic for me. good-natured whole-hearted pining filled with lovelorn gazing and chest aching and fluttering touches, that’s my top priority. i was put on this earth to watch characters suffer over the profundity of their love for another person. unrequited love is why god made me. characters finding out that their feelings are reciprocated after long months/years of suffering is why the universe was assembled from nothingness. amen.
It’s always amazed me how you can listen to a song that’s like 3:30, 4:00, or a bit longer than that and you become so absorbed in the music and how it sounds, that when you look at the lyrics it’ll only be like a paragraph of actual lines before it repeats.
I’ve gotten used to this over time, and become less surprised, but to this day Grey Zone by Nell still gets me XD.
You’re listening to a 5:30 song and there’s only actually three different lines. It’s fricken amazing, and I never noticed before searching the lyrics xD. I didn’t even realise it was all in English until then haha.
I’m not hating at all. It just shows how powerful music is that you can go without realising things like that.
There something I’ve liked in Kdramas for a while now, you know those scenes where the radio is playing through the speakers in a bus, or anywhere else, or one of the characters is a presenter on it? Yeah I really like that. I’ve always found that male presenter’s voice to be really calming to listen to, even if I don’t always understand what they’re talking about.
When you read the subtitles it’s always some deep, profound talk that is related to the characters in some way.
Anyway I’ve been listening to Conversations podcasts before going to sleep lately and caught up with the ones I follow, so I went looking for a Korean one since I remembered really liking their voices.
I ended up stumbling upon Kim Youngha’s Reading Time, and it’s sooooo good. Keeping in mind I don’t understand most of what he is talking about, but his voice is so relaxing to listen to.
- Friend: So tell me, what is so special about asian dramas that you like it so much?
- Me: Are you sure you're ready for this conversation?
