Ask @aerism:

is that why you said china had no taste bc of luhan then? lmao

hmm yeah nice try, i guess you didn't see the tweet that followed it https://twitter.com/kairisyeols/status/621493598706630656 lmao u don't learn do u
that tweet was a /joke/ to my /luhan stan friend/ who /joked/ i had no taste for liking a certain song. why the hell would i say something like that in seriousness - i'm chinese lmfao.
since you seem to know me so well, let's remember all the other stuff i've said about luhan shall we?
- saying i miss luhan
- supporting his great wall movie
- asking my friends if they wanted to go watch a luhan movie with me
- getting excited when luhan and kris met up post-exo
- when listening to exology for the first time, saying i miss luhan's voice
- when he was in exo, thanking luhan for looking out for kai
i'm not going to pretend he was ever my favorite member in exo but that doesn't mean i hate him.
why are you wasting time stalking the tweets of somebody you obviously don't like

why are you so pressed over luhan? lmao typical krusty stan

PFFFFFFFFT LMAO this is the funniest thing i've read in a while, thanks
i am not pressed over luhan. what reason do i have to be pressed over luhan???? i supported him when he left exo (i've supported every member who's left). if you had asked if i was pressed over luhan stans, on the other hand, you'd be damn right. "lmao typical krusty stan"?? more like "lmao typical overly defensive hypocritical luhan stan." i feel bad for the other nice luhan stans who are lumped in with you.
you clearly don't even know the full context of my tweet so you've prematurely judged. i was having a conversation with a couple of friends talking about whose solo album would be coming out next, kris' or luhan's, and i was saying that luhan's album would probably have a lot of ballad tracks. anybody who knows me knows that i am in general not a fan of ballads, especially c-pop ones. hence an album full of ballads wouldn't be as "interesting" to me. there's no shade against luhan for that. it's even an indirect compliment of luhan because i know he's a good enough singer that he is able to sing ballads lmao.
in fact the tweets immediately preceding that tweet was my friend and i joking about how tacky kris' solo mv could be, a la tao's. if anything i'm throwing shade at my own bias lol -- "interesting" does not have to have a positive connotation, you know.
furthermore, i later even said that i would /still/ give luhan's album a chance and that i hoped that there would be at least one dance track on his album. does this sound like a pressed luhan anti to you??
my tweets are public so i trust you can find the receipts yourself.
even if the context wasn't considered, i mean, of course i would find kris' album more interesting??? I'M A KRIS STAN LMAO.
i hope u feel really dumb right now because u sound really salty and, well, really wrong.

What do you think Exo still lack of? I mean, for Kai I notice that he sometimes looks lost or bored when performed songs that doesn't require dance. I want to know your opinion.. ")

consistency in live performances c: don't get me wrong, i'd be the first person who recognizes exo has come a loooooong way in their live performances. they've given some great live performances, much much much better than they used to. BUT they're not consistent about it. i think we need consistency especially from the main vocal line because... well, they're the backbone of any live performance! if they're not consistent, who can we depend on to be? when vocal line are on point, they sound amazing; and yeah, i do not expect perfection every single time (they are human!) but i think we really need to work on minimizing the voice cracks, off notes, straining of voices, etc.
i also think they need to work on synchronizing their dance. this has been true since day one and unfortunately they're still pretty out of sync most of the time lol.
i think that's an unfair generalized statment to say about kai c: i immediately thought of kai performing "run" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lf8MNsQuEQ0aerism’s Video 129714689201 Lf8MNsQuEQ0aerism’s Video 129714689201 Lf8MNsQuEQ0) -- a song that doesn't have a dance but he visibly enjoys performing this song a lot (and he sings live, might i add!!). "promise" also comes to mind, he gets very passionate in that one. i think we can agree that he typically enjoys the performances with choreo, though haha.

thank you for your opinion! it helped me a lot. i don't mind spending a little if it means that i could get something that is worth it. and based on what you said, i think oaokai is a better choice. i saw the kaiser previews and i liked her concept as well. thank you so much! :)

i'm happy to help c: i honestly think that it'll be a one-of-a-kind photobook, i hope you won't be disappointed!!

Hello! I just wanna ask your opinion. So OAOKAI is releasing her 2nd Artbook 'Golden Venus' and at the same time Xscape is also releasing a 1st pb 'Landscape'. I love both fansites but I cannot afford to buy both. Which do you suggest would be a much better choice from the two? Thanks! :)

ahhhh so hard!!! honestly i love xscapes' photos. currently one of my favorite kai fansites, i think. xscape has released some pretty great photos recently, and they're all so gloriously hq *A*. but it's hard to say whether xscape's goods would turn out nice since this is their first photobook, there is nothing previous to judge on...!
some people say trust your first instinct -- and my first instinct, when i saw each fansite's teasers, is that oaokai's teasers were way more interesting and appealing. i'm on a hard fast no-buy for photobooks for the rest of the year but once i saw oaokai's teasers i was like !!! SO TEMPTED !!! imo oaokai's goods and designs are pretty unique and fun -- their first photobook was so fun to look through, i thought. what i loved about it is that she put so many details, comments, and focal points in the photobook that you could tell the fansite master was a really enthusiastic kai stan. she loved the things about jongin that we love about jongin, and she wasn't shy about pointing all of those things out in the photobook. this was facilitated by the fact that the layout of most pages were very creative; not just photos slapped on the page, but carefully arranged and cropped to tell a story (and probably took the fansite master more time to plan everything out -- a good thing!). if you look at oaokai's "page preview" for the second photobook, it's going to be the same effort of design: http://www.kaiwonderland.com/#!pagepreview/cwfi
the drawback of oaokai's goods is that it's a bit of a gamble... are all of the designs A+++? maybe not. oaokai's photos aren't /always/ hq; in this point, xscape seems more consistent. also, quality of materials is sometimes hit or miss? oaokai's first photobook was called a "photo magazine" and it had, as the name suggested, thin magazine paper. quite a few people were disappointed by this, i think. this time oaokai is calling golden venus an "art book." i have no idea what this means lolololol (though on the notice oaokai said "paper is similar to die jungs but thicker" so that suggests quality is like an actual art book) but ig my point is that oaokai puts out products that can be unexpected.
i think if you're looking for a "standard" but (probably) high quality photobook, i'd go with xscape. idt you can go wrong with xscape (their notice/mini site looks great, their photos are great, i expect the output to be great as well) but if you put the xscape photobook in a lineup of photobooks, would it jump out at you? again, hard to say, since i haven't seen any previous xscape goods to compare, but i have a hunch the answer is probably not. however, if you're only going to buy one/very few kai photobooks, perhaps getting something "normal" is a good thing (and it's $5 cheaper than oaokai!). but if you're looking for something more fun and don't mind a little risk or that it might not be the same format as a usual photobook (A4 size, 200 page, etc etc), go for oaokai!

hey, if you don't mind, could you tell me about exo fansites? I mean, what's actually are they? How to join them? the risk of being a member of a fansite? I'm a writing a story tht related to fansites so I need to know more abt them, thanks before :)

i answered a similar question here that should have most everything you wanted to know: http://ask.fm/aerism/answer/124383772337
how to join them is easy, you just have to register at their site just like you register at any other site. there's usually a link to join under the login. however, fansites do not open registration 100% of the time; they only open registration every once in a while so the join link is not always there. you just have to wait. fansites will usually announce it on their twitter when they open registration. also, once you join, you have to earn points by commenting on the site every now and then in order to show you're an active member. inactive members or members who have under an arbitrary number of points will get deleted when fansites do "spring cleaning" from time to time. if you get deleted, i don't think there's anything preventing you from rejoining next time registration opens, though.
i wouldn't say there's any "risk" in being a member of a fansite; the benefit is that you get access to certain posts (photos, videos) that are not readily made public. however, if you follow sites like fy-exo.com, who compile all the fansites' photos (whether they are public or locked), this benefit isn't really material anymore. in addition to locked pics/posts, some fansites also have "secret material" or a higher-level locked section of their site that you not only have to be a member but also have a high enough number of points to gain access to. i'm not sure whether fy-exo.com (and other similar compilation sites) have access to those; it depends on how active the admins are, i suppose. otherwise, there's no risk or benefit to being a fansite member. even sales of fansite goods are open to the public; you don't have to be a member of the fansite to buy their goods. still other fansites have no private posts whatsoever so becoming a member is unnecessary.
imo only the official exo fanclub has any real benefits to joining, and most of those benefits are geared towards domestic (korean) fans than international fans anyway lol.
hope that helps!

I've only seen a few of exo's live performance for call me baby and they were all lip synced. Have they sang that song live once?

yes they have. if you're looking for a live performance, anything after the first week of music shows should be live (anything after the first couple of weeks to be safe). at least one of the music shows require all live singing now (music bank or music core? i forget) but sm groups never sing live in the first week of music show promotions. most likely in the first week they are recording live audio but recording the live video at different times, and then overlaying the live audio on top of the live video when the show airs. and then they eventually start doing 100% live performances.
the way i usually can tell exo is performing live is chen -- when chen is singing live and dancing at the same time, you can hear a lot more oomph in his voice, not only because that's just the way he sings live, but also because he's putting a lot of force in his dance moves now, so his singing is less even. and also the rap of course sounds choppier live. this was a quick search, but the 150411 music core performance sounds live to me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZ_BJILF_CYaerism’s Video 128917726641 EZ_BJILF_CYaerism’s Video 128917726641 EZ_BJILF_CY

I mean Kai is lazy to wake up if not for exo schedule lol. I was sad because Kai is literally do nothing? Even in CMB promotion, he just went to exo related shows and I ever read an article that he got love calls actually. If he can't do acting or variety, he still can do photo shoot. -cont-

What is the use of that hot body and face if you can't land a photo shoot? Please SM, give that boy something. I am sorry, I rant here. I feel like i am a frustrated sister or mom for kai.
--
lol don't worry i understood you. and i hear ya! but you know what, maybe it's his choice to not do extra activities. knowing how introverted kai can be, i kinda want to give sm the benefit of doubt here........ just a little. i also remember when another celeb named kai revealed that he got a lot of love calls from shows and producers who were actually looking for jongin lol -- so i know that he's getting/got invitations for solo activities, but just because he's getting those offers doesn't mean that he wants them. but then again, sm does have a tendency to play favorites for certain things -- whether that's kai in MVs, or kyungsoo/chanyeol/baekhyun for variety/solo activities. in the beginning (mama era or even wolf era), i know sm turned down those solo offers because it was too early for anyone to go solo, and then later on only certain members slowly got solo activities, but like... now we're 3 years into exo's career lol. i think enough time has passed for exo's group image/career to develop, sm, it's okay to give the rest of the members solo activities as well!
oh, yes, photoshoots!!! i completely forgot about photoshoots. i would LOVE for kai to get more photoshoots like the grazia spread he did with sehun! i loved it so much, he looked great ;; any photoshoot would be great for kai tbh, i think he just photographs so well ;; and if he could do interviews along with the photoshoots that would definitely be a bonus.
like i said before, at least this means his schedule is not as packed as it could be, and that he has more time to either rest or do what he loves: dancing, practicing. if kai was unhappy with this situation, then i'd be angrier -- because we know very well by now that a member who is disatisfied with sm's management of their solo development makes them very very very unhappy and leads them to (want to) leave (not saying that kai would lol) -- but imo i don't think i've seen any indication that he is unhappy.

Hi, hi as Kai bias, what do you think with his lack of solo activity. I know that he probably is not interested or too lazy to wake up, but still as his stan, I want to see him expanding in other activity TT

("too lazy to wake up" l m a o hdu kai is not lazy!!) there is no doubt that i would love to see kai doing more things. it's kinda curious that kai has been sm's favorite for a long time yet i can probably count his solo activities over the past three years on one hand lol. i can think of a couple reasons. either he's really terrible at everything but performing or he just doesn't want to do it. most likely it's a combination of both. i mean, it's no secret that kai is not the best idol when it comes to variety shows; sm and shows will tend to favor chanyeol or baekhyun for that kind of stuff. people do tend to think of kai as "boring." (i don't believe that, of course.)
and then there's acting... he's said once he would like to try out acting but it was only once so i'm not sure how real his interest is! and anyway in terms of acting gigs i'm not very confident in sm lol. why? to me, sehun is an obvious pick to go into acting and yet sm hasn't done anything with him either (it's usually the non-variety, non-singing idols who go into acting and sehun fits the bill because he literally has nothing! else! to do! and yet! i mean if we're talking about solo activities per member, i think sehun has even less than kai.)
if kai is not acting or going on variety, then i would love to see him do other kinds of shows that don't require "variety sense." why can't he go on dancing 9 again? be a judge on that? or even just radio shows! i love when he goes on radio shows with fewer members because he has more chances to talk, and i think he always has interesting things to say. i know he's the center of the stage and he's the "face" when it comes to a lot of exo's endorsements but!! he's so much more than just a face!! i mean, as long as he's fine with the way things are, i'm okay too, and also this way he has more time to rest (not much, but). however, i do want him to have the opportunity to grow (he comes out of his shell, he just needs time and opportunity!), and that's why i'm a little saddened by the lack of solo activities for kai :c also just one of the many reasons i'm frustrated with sm managment adskfjd;fkads

Have u heard that chanyeol also face the same situation in japan? He was being followed by fans so he ran away from them & almost got hit by a car? I feel sorry for the boys tho. They rarely get the chance to go on holiday but when they do this kind of things happened :(

yeah i read that fanaccount earlier today :c that honestly scared me because that is one of my worst fears in fandom, one of my biases getting in a car accident... i've heard enough stories about sasaengs chasing after idols in cars and causing collisions that i don't think this is an unrealistic fear at all. i mean, i may sound preachy about this stalking stuff, but this is why. i don't want to wake up one day and hear an exo member has been involved in an accident that was ultimately caused by fans.
i'm just glad chanyeol is okay ;n;
and you know, it's not only sasaengs. you could be thinking "i'm not a sasaeng! i just want to see my favorite idol while he's in my country!" but no that doesn't make you innocent. you are still stalking them on their private time. stalking is sasaeng behavior, by doing it you've become really no better than the others. idk, it just doesn't make sense to me. if you really love your bias, why would you want to become something they fear, or why would you want to do something that would make them dislike you? they are /running away from you/, isn't that a big clue as to how they see your behavior already?

There's this 1 acc on twitter which keeps on saying nasty things about kai & she just wont stop. She was the same girl who called kai an asshole & saying kai is in la for his gf's bday. Today she just said that kai takes drug lol??? Idek why she hates him so much?

who is this twitter person, let me have a gO AT HER (jk don't tell me who it is lol)
there will always be people who hate on other people for absolutely no good reason at all. it's 2015 and there are still some people who dislike kai simply for appearing in more than half of exo's debut teasers lol. just ignore them. they cannot be dealt with reason because they are not rational people n___n

I was really pissed off when some fans started calling kai an asshole just bcos he didnt accept the gifts from fans. Then they started this rumors saying he's in la for his gf's bday, for his family funeral blabla like gv him privacy he's there for personal reasons not for official schedule

ugh -_____- why would they????????? rhetorical question because this isn't even the first time something like this has happened which led to fans calling kai an asshole or unappreciative of fans or too stuck-up etc etc. earlier this year kai wore a mask to a fansign and somebody called him an asshole for that too LOL like it's rude to hide half your face behind a mask in front of fans.... um, how about he was sick (which he told fans at the fansign) and wanted to contain the sickness? oh, no, that might be too ridiculous of an explanation! kai being an asshole is a much more reasonable one!
it doesn't matter what the trip is for -- the fact of the matter is that it's a private trip, and he has a right to be upset that fans are not respecting his privacy. just because he doesn't accept the gifts doesn't mean that he doesn't love his fans; accepting the gifts would just be encouraging fans to continue to see him at the airport on his private time again and again and again, which he has made clear /mutliple times/ is something he doesn't want happening. i don't understand why people can't understand this simple notion.
"but what about the poor fans who waited hours for him at the airport!!!" lol so??? he has no obligation towards them/us. yes, there are other idols who unfailingly greet fans even when those fans stalk them everywhere, who always accepts every single gift that is given to them -- i have stanned those kinds of idols too (yixing and yifan come to mind) but i have /always/ said that that kind of behavior from the idol just encourages the wrong behavior in fans and leads to bad situations (stalking, fans overstepping boundaries, crowding and people getting trampled, etc). of course, i respect those kinds of idols as well, but i don't think kai is in the wrong to draw the line somewhere. and from watching what happens to yixing and yifan sometimes, i'm actually really glad kai did.
we shouldn't need kai to accept fan gifts and fans following him 24/7 as proof that he loves his fans. he has proven time and time again in the past how much he appreciates his fans, and that should be enough.

You answered me! *dance hysterically* im so jealous of u now! I want to see him dancing too :( who was the most good looking one in real life compares to in pictures/videos?

haha i hope you do get to see him one day! i definitely won't miss it if i got a second opportunity to see exo.
ohhhhh i'm going to be so biased and say kris. i do not think photos do him justice. i would be the first to admit that kris sometimes looks off in pictures (he's not very photogenic?) hahaha but irl it's different! i can't even point out exactly what is different between his pictures and him irl but i just remember that when i saw him on stage i was floored by how good looking he was. didn't-stop-gushing-about-kris-for-two-weeks-afterwards kind of floored lmao. iirc exo did a little intro thing to their performance at kcon and kris was the first to appear, rising up from the floor in the middle of the stage -- the lighting made it look like he was a god rising from the depths of darkness, and my jaw dropped and never snapped shut again for the rest of the performance HAHA.
honestly though i had the general impression that all of the members were better looking irl!!! but i can't remember specifically much about the rest of the members haha. the highlights of kcon for me were: jongin's dancing, chanyeol's singing, and kris' looks, and everything else was a blur ;n;

View more

I was wondering have you met the boys in real life? If so how's jongin? Hehe

i have! i went to see exo at kcon in L.A. in 2013! i wasn't able to get into the exo "fansign" (it wasn't really a fansign, it was more of an interview and then they gave out some autographed items randomly. lmao i am still peeved at kcon for that even though i didn't get into the fansign. do you know how painful it was to stand somewhere beyond the outdoor fansign, unable to see anything, but able to hear exo talking and chanyeol singing?!?!?!?! THAT IS TRUE PAIN. ................ahem. anyway) so i haven't "met" them, but i saw them at the concert itself!! i bought the vip tickets so i was in the standing/pit area to be as close as possible to the stage *A*
as for jongin, i think jongin was extremely jet lagged and tired from the trip haha. he didn't speak much! (and later in kcon's backstage videos we could see that jongin was practically sleeping standing up lol.) i don't hold a grudge or blame him at all for that, though; they had just finished a transcontinental flight and they were overworked so of course he was tired. at that time, jongin didn't speak much anyway; it would've really surprised me if he was super fanservice-y or talkative, so it was kind of expected lmao (not in a bad way). i wasn't disappointed c: but oh boy at the concert! when i saw him dancing...!!!!!!!! literally have never seen anything more beautiful in my entire life!!!!!!!! if he was tired off stage, i could not tell at all when he was on stage, his performance is truly incredible. seriously, if i am mesmerized by watching jongin dance via videos on the internet, it is nothing compared to seeing jongin dance in the flesh practically right in front of me. i kept trying to look at other members/biases during the performances too but my eyes just kept getting drawn back to jongin. i felt like a new woman after watching him dance lol, all of my kai stanship renewed!!
this concert/trip was honestly a bit of a splurge for me but it was totally worth it to be able to see jongin dance. i've watched him dance so many times in recorded performances and in fancams, it was surreal to see the real thing!! in hindsight it was also 200% worth it too because if i had not gone i would have never been able to see the 12 of them together ;___; (i'm not an OT12-er now by any means — i respect tao, luhan, and kris' decisions to leave and am not deluded into thinking some day OT12 will reunite or something — but i did love the 12 of them together. OT12 is a happy memory.) also as much as i used to make fun of the tree of life in wolf, it was surprisingly really beautiful in real life??????? "wolf" was the first song they performed at kcon; the 12 of them appeared together on stage in the tree of life position and the lights were so pretty i might or might have not teared up right then and there lmaoooo. so i'm very glad i went! no regrets.

This might sound creepy but i actually knows lot bout jongin after i kinda stalked ur ask lol im new into this fandom around a year & a half maybe. I wish i knew him sooner :(

and there's no need to regret being a "new" fan! if it helps, here's a pimp post that covers kai for the first year or so to catch you up http://exochocolate.livejournal.com/295236.html (disclaimer: i wrote this pimp post, not to toot my own horn lol)
