    Saidan // She’s Buried Under The Cherry Blossoms 

    A sacred place for all the dead to rest their eyes soon comes the darkness and you fade into the night of all the choices why did you choose suicide? Soon ill be married to the pain, my bride
    Cry for help I can’t bleed was it easy for you all to see? I can’t think I can’t breathe Isn’t anybody listening? Open up with no need suffocating while the people feed in the land of apathy
    Cry for help let me bleed was it easy for you all to see? I can’t think I can’t breathe Isn’t anybody listening? Open up with no need suffocating while the people feed in the land of apathy
    A sacred place for all the dead to rest their eyes soon comes the darkness and I fade into the night Of all the choices why did you choose suicide? Soon I’ll be married to the pain, my bride
    Deep in the night as she dies I’m awaken by her cries and I feel the weight of life taken from you Look towards the sky and you’ll find all the years are passing by now your free from the pain it can’t haunt you now
    Can’t haunt you now

    Okay so I haven’t been on tumble in 5 years prob and I’m back solely bc your posts and content are SO GOOD that I needed to be able to interact withe you and ask you all the things. Your posts spark so much thought and curiosity that the urge to ask is undeniable. I love you a lot. Like so much.

    Anyways.

    I LOVE your posts on language and age differences. The fact that you broke it down between the actors ages and their character is- so good. Did you have any thoughts on this for the Korean dramas? Semantic error is interesting bc the actors themselves have a pretty big age gap and then the language play between hyung, his name, and sunbae that you’ve already talked about.

    ….also sorry if you’ve already posted about this- I’m still going through all your posts. I genuinely love them. All of them.

    BL Age Dynamics & CHEMISTRY on screen

    Aw, thank you and WELCOME BACK.

    I actually rebooted this blog entirely because of BL, so not a dissimilar pathway back to tumblr. I guess, sorry not sorry? 

    Thank you for you compliment on age dynamics! I think you’re talking about this one? Thai Honorifics Between Ages in BL and real life 

    I also have this one, which is mostly a list: Thai BL Actors & Age Dynamics and this one, Thai BL Actors Age Brackets, which is me bing a little shit. 

    The giving good chemistry in BL post is here. 

    To answer your question, I have LOTS of thoughts on this in Kdramas and KBLs but I can’t speak to it since I’ve only JUST started to barely understand formal/informal registers and honorifics in Korean. I find it a much more difficult language than Thai. 

    I’ve been noodling for a bit on a post about how a wider age gap often contributes to better chemistry in BL (specifically thinking about Thailand and Korea) and spearheaded by Semantic Error. 

    (I did talk about this and yaja time in this linguistic post about the challenge in captioning. Honestly, was there any sexier execution for the word hyung in all of time than JaeYoung’s right before that kiss?) 

    It does seem like when there is a big enough age gap and enough culture sanctified (and built in trust) in the resulting power dynamic, that if the older actor (and/or, in many cases, the more experienced actor) is willing to take the lead, the chemistry will simply be a lot better. 

    However I could be biased because I am looking for it, I am sure there are plenty of counter examples, bad chemistry being a lot more common than good. 

    Just a quick assessment:

    Of the 6 other Korean BLs that I thought had unexpectedly good kisses this year (2022, so far), half of them had an age gap of 4-6 years (First Love Again, Blueming, Cherry Blossoms) and half of them did not (Kissable Lips, Oh! Boarding, and Ocean). So yeah, no correlation. 

    One would expect older actors (in general) to be better at chemistry, but while acting experience does seem to play a role, actually just life experience does not. The exception being if BOTH actors in the pair are quite young, we should never expect good chemistry (think Love Sick or Make it Right). 

    Some scattered thoughts on pairs, chemistry, and age gaps: 

    MaxTul the kings for a reason clearly have a great relationship, but also Tul acts very much the older one coddling and spoiling Max, but they also have a sense of friendship/equality about them, possibly brought on by Max always playing the seme roles, but most likely just their personalities. 

    Zee has been the older in both his pairs but, at least at the start, with Saint he was slightly differential, because Saint had so much more experience, with NuNew (much larger age gap) he is definitely the dominant, but sometimes it feels a bit too much too me. I don’t want to get into the drama of it all but I think MewGulf mishandled this dynamic and that’s part of what went wrong with their branding and I worry about the same think with ZeeNew. 

    In Cutie Pie’s case it doens’t help that on promo we saw them modeled against MaxNat who are more established and a lot more MaxTul about their pairing brand. (Both pairs have a 9 year age gap, but Nat was barely legal when he first acted opposite Max. And I think Max has always been very protective and tolerant/indulgent with him as a result.) 

    The Parks in Semantic Error have plenty of interviews about their month and half filming together. They clearly bonded, partly because they both seem quite introverted (for performers). IRL there was a definite noted jump into hung with them: they talk about the fact that because they have such a big age gap JaeChan called SeoHam whatever the next level honorific up is (the translators often use uncle... which I find, unsettling*). But that they relaxed with each other so quickly, partly because SeoHam found JaeChan so young and cute he started calling him baby (a less sexualized term in Korean than it is English) and JaeChan could relax into a hyung dynamic. Both of them are relatively experienced actors, but I still think this dynamic contributed to better chemistry on screen. 

    SamYu don’t have a huge age gap, but Sam was both older and more experienced when it came to shoot We Best Love. Taiwan is better at workshopping for chemistry in general, but the fact that SamYu’s “boyfriends kissing on the bench scene” at the end of WBL1 was their FIRST scene filmed together speaks volumes to an established comfort dynamic, but also Sam’s experience. 

    all that said... 

    So much of this is personality dependent. And also, just good acting. 

    And these, I think, are actually the biggest elements in play. Certainly cultural age dynamics, but also just the personalities of the two actors involved and their skill sets. Which is EXACTLY the same thing that comes into play with het romance couples. 

    That said, with chemistry, surrounding culture really does play a huge overarching role in BL. Statistically (good chemistry / number of BL produced) we are always going to get the best kisses from Taiwan, the Philippines, and Thailand... kinda in that order. And yes I do think this has to do with those culture’s relationships to queerness, upbringing, and ubiquity of representation and so forth. 

    * For anyone reading this for whom English is not your native language calling someone daddy was kinky and is now just kinda part of being gay (unless you’re a girl calling your bf daddy, in which case, still kinky), but calling someone uncle is weird. That’s because the concept of a “creepy uncle” (by which I mean sexually inappropriate or lascivious) is actually a culture trope (for lack of a better way of putting it). This is a trope that used to be associated specifically with older gay men and systemically contributed to homophobia, especially in parents, by specifically conflating gay with child molester. An issue still grappled with by the queer community to this day. 

    As one of my older gay friends once said:

    I’m gay which means: neither one of us is “the girl,” and that I like men, not children. 

    A simple statement that represents what has been a queer battleground for decades.

    "It feels strange being something other than the tragically deceased childhood friend. I'm glad the mun decided that me being dead didn't do much for Tsubasa's character, but I'm still getting used to the idea of being... alive, I guess?" Hina mused. "I should visit Pikarigaoka sometime, though..."

    Sk8 Headcanons: Prom Night Edition!

    [Do they got Proms in Japan? Eh, anyways here's how their prom went/is going to go]

    Joe: Was asked out by 6 girls, turned down 4 and had a hard time choosing the last 2 so they just went as a little group, people thought he was such a player. Except, Kaoru tagged along for everyone to eat at waffle house and people then thought it was a double date.

    Cherry: He stuck along Kojiro, not really leaving from out of his sight. He had no one else to go with and he refused to go on the dance floor if Kojiro wasn't there with him. Also, he tagged along for the waffle house dinner.

    Shadow: He rolled up to prom in his alternate persona, being the life of the prom dance floor and even breakdancing, doing coffee grinders and having a crowd cheer for him. Also, totally drank spiked punch because somebody just had to be the dick to spike the punch.

    Adam: His school had the lamest prom so he snuck into Joe and Cherry's prom to have some fun, trying to get around Cherry yet couldn't ever spot him.

    Tadashi: He attended both proms with Adam, just standing there with Adam unless he was asked to dance on the dance floor, in which, he did. And wow can he break it down.

    Reki: He'll probably try and ask a girl out but he's too awkward while asking her that she gets nervous and turns him down. He dances to the stuff that he knows but he isn't some talented dancer. Although, surprisingly, when that one artist comes on, all of the sudden he can get the life of the dance floor.

    Langa: He doesn't ask anyone out so he just goes to prom with Reki, sticking right beside him and doing awkward little dances because he's nervous. Reki, despite him not being that great of a dancer, gets him to come on the dance floor and get comfortable with dancing in front of their classmates. He then invites Reki to his apartment for dinner with his mom.

    Miya: Everyone is crowding him and asking to take a photo with him or they're kind of distant and quiet. He'd probably try to go home early with a classic "mom, pick me up, someone started throwing a chair" as an excuse. If he doesn't go home early, he just hangs at whoever is hosting an afterparty/dinner and chill there until his mom can pick him up.

    ● Goodmorning, my cherry blossoms 🌸 ●

    Here it's sunny! ☀️

    But I'm not too hot ☺️

    Maybe 'cause I hydrated a lot! 💦

    So I can feel the light air blowing a bit from the window 🌬️

    I fell asleep at circa 3:30am and woke up at about 6am, but I was still very tired so, as I woke up, I took my morning medication and slept some more 😴

    I woke up at 9:30am, and wished a good morning to my dad with some tight hugs 🤗 💙

    Then I made my bed very carefully.

    After that, I had breakfast with my parents 🥐 ☕

    Subsequently self-care (plenty of it lol)!

    But also taking care of my mom, who is ill, and she's suffering more because she's very hypochondriac 😔

    Yesterday evening she said she was about to die, and I worried and prayed for her not to.

    Guess what?

    She's still alive!

    And reactive!

    Oh and always yesterday evening a car accident occurred, and my mom (very very anxious) panicked about my brother being involved,

    So I prayed once again, and he's safe*-*

    This family is so b l e s s e d 🙌🏻 I've even just made an appointment with my hairdresser for next Saturday, and the same day I will maybe get back my broken crucifix necklace fixed*-*

    May you have an awesome Saturday!ಌ

    This is my customized female protagonist named “Anthamia” with her female Hisuian Typhlosion “Mitama” and her main love interest Adaman the leader of Diamond Clan. 

    Her Japanese version name is called “Saki (サキ)” which means “blossoming (咲)”, also derived from Saki Mitama ( 幸御魂 ) one of the four honorable souls that is associated with happiness/love, and another reading of “future (未来)” in Japanese. It almost matches with Adaman’s Japanese name “Seki (セキ)”.

    In Korean version on the other hand, her name is “So-Yeon (소연 咲恋)” which means “blossoming love”.
