TINA:What are the thoughts and the inspiration and behind the fanfic “THE AGREEMENT” ? GINA: The idea for “The Agreement” was really very random. I always liked the idea of a contract relationship plot so I decided to try it with YunJae.
TINA:One of the most recommended fanfic by the readers is “DEVIL WEARS A TIE”.What are the thoughts and inspiration behind the fanfic and the reasons why it is so well loved. GINA: “One of my favorite movies is the “Devile Wears Prada” so that’s where the title inspiration came from. As for the plot, I really wanted to write something that is really comedic and would give readers a laugh. I think the comedic aspect of the fic is really what makes it so popular. By the way, thank you all for being readers. The reception I got for it really inspired me to keep writing. I am very grateful.
TINA: Are you still working on the most awaited sequel in yunhos pov? GINA: I’ve unfortunately abandoned that that for other projects. Maybe I’ll come back to it later down the road if I become inspired again.
TINA: Few words on the fanfic “ROMANCING YOU”.thoughts and inspiration behind it. GINA: Oh my goodness! This was my second fic and I wanted to write somthing inspired by the managa’s I used to read all the time.
TINA: How did the story line of “GIVE ME WINGS” come by inspiration behind it. GINA: I had never played with the idea of something of a supernatural feeling. Also I wanted to depict Yunho as an angel.
TINA:Thoughts and inspiration behind the fanfic “YOU AGAIN”? GINA: Who doesn’t love a good reunion fic? I think the idea came to me randomly.
TINA: Few words on the Fanfic "HATE THAT I LOVE YOU”? GINA: “I honestly don’t remember where I got the idea from this story. Looking back, it was rather gritty and emotional. I think it opened the door for me to be able to write more seriously.
TINA:Another well loved story “THE STORY OF BLUFFING NANNY”..it is refreshing to see yunho as a nanny for change..what is the inspiration behind it. GINA: “I had a phase where I fell in love with the idea of Manny’s (a male nanny). Also, I think it’s rare that we see JaeJoong filling the more masculine, breadwinner role so I thought it would be refreshing to write something like that.
TINA: Inspiration behind the fanfic “LOVE UNEXPECTED”? GINA: I love giving JaeJoong and Yunho such real and relatable careers. I think that this story just gave them a different light to be seen in.
TINA: Inspiration behind the fanfic “LOVE TASTES LIKE CHOCOLATE” ? GINA: I was in the mood to write something about love and chocolate. Haha, I’m sorry that it’s not more exciting than that.
TINA: Few words on its sequel “BAKED IN HAPPY ENDINGS”? GINA: I rarely do sequels, but I think I left the first story in a good spot to continue it again.
TINA: “DO IT LIKE YUNJAE”..How did you come up with it..and any plans on adding more shots to them? GINA: Sexy YunJae is so much fun to write so it was easy to write. There may be more oneshots for that in the future.
TINA: Any plans on adding to “YUN+JAE=4EVERINLOVE”? GINA: Like “Do It Like YunJae” I just like writing short stories that feature the couple in different situations. I may actually have a few fics to add to that in the near future.
TINA: Few words on your ongoing fanfics.. GINA: I’m currently working on 2 oneshots and forming the basis for my next chapter fic so please stay tuned.
TINA:Your fanfics are on every single recommended lists I have come across.. how do feel knowing your fanfics are most recommended…. GINA: I’m so honored. I’ve been away from consistently writing for a couple of years now, but every time I check back and see people are still reading, I’m inspired to keep going. Even with how busy my life is, I don’t think I could ever fully leave the fandom. I can see myself being a mom with a full time job and still writing fanfics. I appreciate every single readers with my whole heart.
TINA: What does yunjae represent to you? KIM: I suppose to me they represent a love that seems public but as the same time secret. A bit mysterious, if you ask me. They represent two people that I believe were made just for each other.
TINA: Why are we obsessed with Yunjae? KIM: Because they’re obsessed with each other, and we catch on to that, haha.
TINA: Why is that Yunjae in stories can do anything and we support them?(Ex: affair, Incest, homewrecker) KIM: I think it’s because we all like to see them in a different light, imagine them in different scenarios that would never happen, because we believe we actually know them quite well, which isn’t true. Of course we don’t know them like each other, but we know them a different sort of way, and sometimes it’s a thrill imagining them in situations that would be painful or embarrassing in real life.
TINA: Tomorrow headlines Jaejoong confirms he is in a relationship with a girl. How do you feel? KIM: To be honest, I wouldn’t feel any different as long as he is happy.
TINA: Asian celebrities often get married in secret and hide the fact they are indeed married..So one member of TVXQ is in that married status. How do you feel? KIM: Again, all that matters is that they’re happy and healthy.
TINA: How real is Yunjae and how much is in fact Fan service? KIM: I think there is a fair bit of fan service, but you can tell when it’s not. When they try to hide their fingers entwining under the table, or when they exchange certain looks, I doubt it’s fan service since you have to be eagle-eyed to catch it.
TINA: Do you think Jaejoong is gay? KIM: Honestly? Yes.
TINA: When Yunjae comes out publicly…….. KIM: I don’t know what I will do with myself, to be honest.
TINA: Does yunho look gayer than Jaejoong? KIM: I bet he is, actually. He seems a bit like a diva sometimes, haha.
TINA: Do you think they meet secretly and still friends or even lovers? KIM: Definitely.
TINA: I heard Jaejoong song Nine is for Yunho even though he denied it?What do you think? KIM: For the time being, I think we should take Jaejoong’s word for it.
TINA: What is about Yunjae that makes you sacrifice your time and energy upon writing fictions.. KIM: I guess it’s because I write down conversations and scenarios I wish would happen in real life. They look good together, and they seem happy together as well.
TINA: Thoughts on homosexuality? KIM: Go for it
TINA: What do you think of people who think homo sexuality is a sin and a disease which can be cured? KIM: I don’t want to say that I despise them, because I don’t want to stoop down to their level, but you can’t have a rational conversation with people like this, so I don’t waste my time trying to.
TINA:What do you think we should do to make the world accept homosexuality? KIM: Don’t be afraid to show it, which sounds easier than it is, I know.
TINA: In the future your kid comes out to you. What will you do? KIM: Make sure he finds a boyfriend that treats him right
TINA: Pride or love? KIM: Love
TINA: Love to me is………… KIM: not to be taken for granted
TINA: do you believe in love at first sight? KIM: No
TINA: what are your views on yoochun scandal? KIM: I never really believed what was being said about him. The accusations were just so out there, but then you kind of pinch yourself in the neck and think ‘what if it’s true’ but then you snap back to reality and realize that you’re being ridiculous for even thinking that.
TINA: since junsu has been in a relation with a girl has yoosu ship sunk? KIM: I don’t think so
TINA: I have read somewhere that Jae and chun are looking more like lovers than friends..what do you think? KIM: I honestly don’t know. People have different views on things and relationships. What some consider to be the action of a lover can be that of a best friend to others.
TINA: are we deluding ourselves by making these OTP’s? KIM: In my case, no. I do this because I think it’s fun, but if they all married women tomorrow, I wouldn’t feel any different towards them.
Some common Questions:
TINA: I have heard Asian think westerns are ugly? KIM: I can’t say I know much about that, haha, but each to their own I guess.
TINA: Asian gives importance to skin color. dark skin is big no no to Asians? Do you think it is ok to think like that? KIM: I don’t think it’s okay to think like that, but when it comes to this matter, I highly doubt Asia will change its views since it’s been like this for a very long time.
TINA: How Important is skin color to you? KIM: Not important at all
TINA: Opinions on plastic surgery? KIM: I think that if there is something about yourself you’re not happy with and you have the opportunity to change it, you should be able to do so without feeling ashamed or scared of judgment.
TINA: Do you think jaejoong’s in famous beauty had help from the plastic surgeon? KIM: I don’t really know
TINA: What do you think of Siwon from super junior’s statement when he said in a radio interview..”I don’t mind dating western girls but marry an Asian girl my mom approves off? KIM: Having your parents approve of your partner is a huge deal in many cultures, so I understand why he would say that.
TINA: Why should we be obsessed with pop idols when they don’t even know we exist? KIM: For me it’s more of a fun pastime than an obsession. Either way, it’s fun and you get to connect with like-minded people,which it also fun, so it’s a win-win situation, I think.
