So about choreographers do they personally come to Korea to teach the idols the choreo or is it like they send a video to Korean choreographers who then teach it to the idols or can both happen? I dunno I've just always been confused about it. Like Adrenaline was choreographed by Kyle Hanagami and Taemin's Danger by Ian Eastwood both don't live in Korea so how was it taught to the idols?

They get flown over, just like how foreign composers are flown over. Here’s Nick Bass and Trent Dickens at SM

And even the rookie kiddies getting a session with a man like Tony Testa in Korea.

How long is your gym prep playlist?

The prep playlist is something I keep to below one hour, and despite the low number of tracks, changes are only made slowly. There are changes from time to time, depending on what sets the right mood for me at that point in my life.

This prep period, when I’m traveling to the gym, getting changed, stretching and warming up is really important to me. The smallest thing could put me in a bad mood for a workout session, but the correct environment can make me feel invincible enough to do supernormal sessions.

The survivors/veterans on the 20-song playlist from my original days of gym are “Sanctus” and “Hymn before Action” by Karl Jenkins, that have been there for over a decade.

The latest additions have been two wrestling themes (“Patriot” for Jack Swagger and “Cult of Personality” for CM Punk), two tracks from “Slave Hunters” OST and one track from Inception OST.

A good chunk of it is the Death Note OST lol

One song that I’m considering taking back into the fold is “Dies Irae” from Mozart’s Requiem, and slotting it as the last traack. If the wrath and fury of God is not enough to motivate you, what else is? lol

Any tips, career-wise, on how an introvert should network? My family is estranged from a lot of my relatives (long story), so I can't start there, and I don't know many people. :(

I don’t really know.

How many citations does your work have? you can provide a range

This is how you end up identifying me so I can’t say much. The number of citations is enough for me since it was an undergrad paper but would be considered quite low in the grand scheme of things, and in light of what we were trying to achieve.

Constantly coming across comments like that one you just answered, makes it that much easier to pick a side.

This one? http://www.oniontaker.com/post/100448829815/for-someone-whose-voice-is-taken-seriously-in-the-kpop

Well, you don’t have to pick a side if you don’t want to.

define slut

Popular definitions are not favourable to those given the label.

That said, I don’t mind being a slut for my girlfriend and hope she’s a slut for me too lol.

What leader duties does Taeyeon do now? From Radio Star it seems like any grievances the group has with the company, Tiffany is the one who arrives first to argue on the group's behalf. Some of the concert/fanmeet "can't wait to see you" vids Taeyeon doesn't speak in them. Award speeches now on shows are done by everyone. It seems like the really hard "in need of a politically correct answer" type of questions are what Taeyeon does?

Apparently her duty is to take the blame, seeing how some fans are turning against her.

For someone whose voice is taken seriously in the kpop world, you sure hate answering hard questions concerning SNSD (more specifically, your precious Taeyeon). What's the matter? Afraid that the queen bitch of kpop would look like a bully and a slut? Yes, she is a slut. Yes, she is a bully. I, too, have acquaintances close to the source. SNSD needs to burn. I hope that bitch leader gets into an accident.

If you want a genuine answer from the heart, it’s probably because whatever I say about Taeyeon will be seen as biased and dismissed by the likes of you, thus never changing the status quo while providing more fodder for accusations. That’s why I dismiss the questions instead of answering them.

Maybe you have acquaintances close to the source, but I remain confident in whom I place trust and the information that I receive. That spreadsheet made by the creepy anon (which is now out of date) gave me something crazy like a 90% record in accuracy (I didn’t know it was that high either), with things as specific and corporate as the number of singles and BoA would release in Japan in an 18 month period, and with things as personal as Jessica’s planned month for marriage.

These days, there are people out there with ulterior motives that are trying to fuel a civil war because they think it will benefit their cause. If your source is new, or your source’s source is new, then I’d take their words with at least a pinch of salt. The past year… the propaganda machines have been in preparation to work on overdrive within the fandom.

The fact that you tell me she’s some kind of bully and a slut when I know that at worst she’s fickle and moody (and sometimes I’m not proud of stuff she does), tells me your sources have ulterior motives. In my case, one of my biggest sources is not a Taeyeon or Tiffany source, and it’s sad that I have to state that as though we SONE are supposed to be tribal even within ourselves.

Do you think things will get worse before they get better for sm? Or are things going to settle down now?

I think things will quieten down for the meantime.

Is there still going to be a concert in November?

It’s been postponed to 2015 but at this point, I’m not entirely sure what we can do.
