GETTING TO KNOW KIWI-LICIOUS....

PART 3 ALL ABOUT YUNJAE.....

TINA: What does yunjae represent to you?
NHU: Perfection.

TINA: Why are we obsessed with Yunjae?
NHU: I used to be a straight-couple author and, for some unknown reason, I switched over and have only been writing YunJae ever since. I just feel drawn to them and I think their irresistible charm is why we are obsessed with them.

TINA: Why is that Yunjae in stories can do anything and we support them?
(Ex: affair, Incest, home wrecker)
NHU: Hm, this isn’t true. I have seen readers hating on them even though their characters aren’t true representations of who they are. I personally don’t support everything they do in stories so I can’t really answer this. However, I support everything they do in real life as long as they are happy and their actions aren’t against the codes of ethics.

TINA: Tomorrow headlines Jaejoong confirms he is in a relationship with a girl. How do you feel?
NHU: Dead and then alive again. My YunJae ship will still sail.

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?
NHU: Curious. Just who could be so lucky to be loved by one of the best men in the entire universe?

TINA: How real is Yunjae and how much is in fact Fan service?
NHU: As real as the Earth is round.

TINA: Do you think Jaejoong is gay?
NHU: No, I think he is bi and Yunho is gay. Some might disagree and hate me for saying this, but it is my opinion. As per the norm, to each their own.

TINA: When Yunjae comes out publicly……..
NHU: I would be extremely happy, but worried for them and their safety.

TINA: Does yunho look gayer than Jaejoong?
NHU: Oh, yes. I definitely thing so. Not all the time though.

TINA: Do you think they meet secretly and still friends or even lovers?
NHU: Yes.

TINA: I heard Jaejoong song Nine is for Yunho even though he denied it?What do you think?
NHU: The songs that both parties sing/compose after the separation do seem to mean for one another.

TINA: What is about Yunjae that makes you sacrifice your time and energy upon writing fictions..
NHU: I just love them and I adore writing. It is a win-win situation.

TINA: Your future plans for fanfics?
NHU: I plan on stopping in the far future when I graduate from Pharmacy School, but I do not know the exact details yet. I love writing about them too much. However, real life can get busy and I do not want to start something and then abandoning it.

TINA: Thoughts on homosexuality?
NHU: I don’t mind it. People are entitled to do what they want as long as it does not harm others.

TINA: What do you think of people who think homo sexuality is a sin and a disease which can be cured?
NHU: To each their own.

TINA: What do you think we should do to make the world accept homosexuality?
NHU: I don’t like forcing my belief on others. They can believe what they want.

TINA: In the future your kid comes out to you. What will you do?
NHU: I will accept and love them the same.

TINA: Pride or love?
NHU: Pride.

TINA: Love to me is…………
NHU: Important.

TINA: Do you believe in love at first sight?
NHU: Yes.

TINA: What are your views on yoochun scandal?
NHU: I adore him regardless.

TINA: Since junsu has been public about his relation with a girl has Yoosu ship sunk?
NHU: I don’t really care much about the Yoosu ship. People are welcomed to think as they like. They can keep believing if they choose to and vice versa.

TINA: How did you react to the news of “Yoochuns” upcoming marriage?
NHU: I was sad at first but if he loves her and she loves him, I am all for it.

TINA: I have read somewhere that Jae and chun are looking more like lovers than friends..what do you think?
NHU: I secretly ship them together.

TINA: Are we deluding ourselves by making these OTP’s?
NHU: No.

SOME RANDOM QUESTIONS...

TINA: Opinions on plastic surgery?
NHU: I don’t really care for it.

TINA: Do you think jaejoong’s in famous beauty had help from the plastic surgeon?
NHU: I like him because of his voice, not his looks. Therefore, I don’t really have an opinion on the matter.

TINA: Why should we be obsessed with pop idols when they don’t even know we exist?
NHU: It’s a choice. People can love whoever or idolize whoever they choose to.

NHU: Coffee feeds my inspirations. Normally, I write whenever I feel like it. My desire to write becomes intensified with songs that make me emotional.

TINA: What is the first fanfic you completed?

NHU: My grammar has improved.

TINA: How important are readers and their comments?
NHU: I like to get feedbacks but I don’t believe in begging for them or demanding my readers to comment.  It’s more of a loop system for me. I get ideas from reading the comments as well as useful suggestions. They help me improve myself.

END OF PART 1

GETTING TO KNOW KIMBAB_SSI......

PART 3 ALL ABOUT YUNAJE......

TINA: What does yunjae represent to you?
KIMMI: Happiness. Thinking, watching or writing about these two can make my foul mood of the day become better.

TINA: Why are we obsessed with Yunjae?
KIMMI: Because they have this indescribable intimacy when they were together. For me, Jung Yunho is my strong bias, and Jaejoong happened to be the closest member to him when they were still DB5K. Yunho used to be clinging and touchy when he was with Jae. And I’ve never seen he treated others like the way he treated Jaejoong.


TINA: Why is that Yunjae in stories can do anything and we support them?
(Ex: affair, Incest, home wrecker)
KIMMI: Because we can’t find the Yunjae in the story in reality.^^ So why not created something we wished for in reality in our own imaginary.

TINA: Tomorrow headlines Jaejoong confirms he is in a relationship with a girl. How do you feel?
KIMMI: Honestly, sad. But just think about if he is happy with the one he choose himself, so why not. Since love is the condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.

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?
KIMMI: Same here, will feel sad. But if they’re happy, then why not just accepted it. Though, we all know this thing will happened sooner or later.

TINA: How real is Yunjae and how much is in fact Fan service?
KIMMI: Just thinking, why a certain couple can be shipped and a fan service started, if they are not closest enough for the fans to spot their intimacy either behind or in front of the camera. For Yunjae, well there are uncounted videos of the proofs how real they are out there compared to other couples. ^^

TINA: Do you think Jaejoong is gay?
KIMMI: I prefer to keep my thought about this to myself. Sorry… ^^

TINA: When Yunjae comes out publicly……..
KIMMI: Fainted first. Then wake up and screaming ‘I know it!’.

TINA: Does yunho look gayer than Jaejoong?
KIMMI: Nope. Lol!

TINA: Do you think they meet secretly and still friends or even lovers?
KIMMI: Obviously, they did.

TINA: I heard Jaejoong song Nine is for Yunho even though he denied it?What do you think?
KIMMI: The lyric itself is enough to answer it all. Even he denied the rumor on public, we as the fans know.

TINA: What is about Yunjae that makes you sacrifice your time and energy upon writing fictions..
KIMMI: Happiness and enjoyment.

TINA: Your future plans for fanfics?
KIMMI: I’ll keep writing. There are a lot more in my ‘unposted stories’ folder. ^^

TINA: Thoughts on homosexuality?
KIMMI: I’m sorry. To be honest, I’m not too open about this kind of thing. Even watching others guyxguy couple, I feel awkward. But YunJae is exception. Isn’t it weird? The power of Yun & Jae I think. ^^

TINA: What do you think of people who think homo sexuality is a sin and a disease which can be cured?
KIMMI: They are still human being, nothing can’t be cured. It’s just about preference.

TINA: What do you think we should do to make the world accept homosexuality?
KIMMI: No comment.

TINA: In the future your kid comes out to you. What will you do?
KIMMI: Pouring them with endless love.

TINA: Pride or love?
KIMMI: Love!

TINA: Love to me is…………
KIMMI: Not just a mere feeling toward someone. It can also be toward something. Love is broad. When the small thing can make you happy, or someone can make you happy in away that nothing or nobody else could, then that’s love to you. To me, just do the thing that you love to do, and love someone that always be there for you.

TINA: Do you believe in love at first sight?
KIMMI: I don’t have experience in falling in love at first sight. So, I’m not sure. For me, it based on what you see on the exterior, what you see at first is what you love. But after you understand the person inside and out, that’s when you can decide either it’s a love or just temporary like.

TINA: What are your views on Yoochun's scandal?
KIMMI: Sabotage. Haters random judge just making its worse. I’ve read a lot of news regarding this same issue, not just k-pop idols, but also infamous korean actors. But still, when it happened to my favorite idol, I feel disappointed. But as a true and loyal fan, you know what’s true and false when you have been following them for ten years to understand them.

TINA: Since junsu has been in a relation with a girl has yoosu ship sunk?
KIMMI: Not really, I still found YooSu writers keep writing. ^^

TINA: How did you react to the news of “Yoochun's” upcoming marriage?
KIMMI: Shocked and sad, but at the same time glad that he had finally decided to settle down.

TINA: I have read somewhere that Jae and chun are looking more like lovers than friends..what do you think?
KIMMI: If there is another person who knows Jaejoong well than Yunho amongst the five, whom he can confide everything openly, then it would be Yoochun. If Yunho is his other half, then Yoochun is his soulmate. Everyone can tell this after watching DBSK couple talk show.

TINA: Are we deluding ourselves by making these OTP’s?
KIMMI: Well, delusions are necessary to our happiness as realities. How can we stop deluding ourselves if Yun and Jae keep making us to? Keep giving us the hints.^^ Believe it or not, sometime it could become reality. When I was a kid, I keep deluding myself to become I am now. Lol! So who knows, in the near future YunJae stepped out to announce, ‘Yes, we are real’. \(^o^)/


SOME RANDOM QUESTIONS...

TINA: Opinions on plastic surgery?
KIMMI: It’s like a facade that concealed a slightly unpleasant look of someone, in order to bring out their confidence. But for me, the pleasant thing that we seen outside doesn’t usually mirrored the inside. But sadly, nowadays plastic surgery becomes a trend.

TINA: Do you think jaejoong’s in famous beauty had help from the plastic surgeon?
KIMMI: This question has been asked a lot to him back then and his answer always be, ‘only my fans know’. ^^ I think he did a little on his eyelid. But no major surgery done since you could tell it’s natural or not by looking at his mother. If you see a picture of his biological mother, not the one that raised him since he was a kid. He resembles her a lot. Those pouty lips, pointy nose and those eyes! And his biological younger sister, just like Jaejoong in a girl version. ^^ His baby picture and grown up ones, not much different. Only when you were in a teen age, there would look a bit different. I think because of the changes of hormone. Lol! Even my picture during high school is unrecognizable by my colleagues who have had a look at it. XD

TINA: Why should we be obsessed with pop idols when they don’t even know we exist?
KIMMI: I don’t know what others’ opinion are. But for me, we start loving a certain idol because of their music, and followed with their character in real life. That does bring us enjoyment. So why not keep supporting them. They do know us exist from the support they received. (0_<)

Head out to Kimmi's AFF account to read her fanfics...KIMBAB_SSI

LET'S GET INTIMATE WITH KIMBAB_SSI.....

PART 2 ALL ABOUT WRITING FANFICTIONS.....

TINA:  How and when did you decide to be a fanfic author?
KIMMI:  This is one of the moments where I can’t even forget in my life! It happened just a day before one of my semester exam. I still remember I was studied for the exam while listening to dbsk songs and out of nowhere my mind was distracted; the urge to write about Yunjae came with the idea keep bugging my mind. I couldn’t block it out. Instead of study for the exam tomorrow, I ended up writing what was playing in my head in the middle of the night. I just need to get everything out of my mind before I lost my muse. ^^

TINA:  What made you to sit down and actually write something?
KIMMI:  When the muse came, and the mood and emotion just right to make me move my finger on the keyboard. It’s just happen and won’t stop until I run out of idea.

TINA:  What is the first fanfic you completed?
KIMMI:  The first fanfic I wrote is ‘Vacant of heart’, but the first completed is ‘Love on ride.’

TINA:  How did you get your idea for your first fanfic?
KIMMI:  It was that night before the exam. ^^ It was a very long time ago around 2008. If I’m not mistaken, it was when I listening to DBSK or should I say Tohoshinki’s song titled ‘forever love’, since it’s a song from their Japanese album. It’s a sad song, that’s why ‘vacant of heart’ came out to be a sad story. Lol.

TINA:  Have you had any prior experience of writing before your first fanfic?
KIMMI:  Nooo… blame it on YunJae! Because of them, my hand was itchy to write about them. Their friendship is something. And I solely write YunJae’s story, never write anything else beside this fandom. Let’s just say YunJae is my passion of writing.

TINA:  Have you ever plagued by doubts on your storyline?
KIMMI:  Always.

TINA:  How did you promote your fanfic to readers?
KIMMI:  Never promote them, just feel free to write and post. The readers who intrigue with the stories will keep following.

TINA:  Have you ever been anxious about how the readers receive your story?
KIMMI:  Always. It’s true that I write what I love to and freely post it up. But sometime there’s a feeling of doubting if what I wrote is something immature and there is no message in the story that could be deliver or worth writing. So, what’s the point of writing. ‘I write because I love it’ that’s true… but I don’t like it when the story doesn’t have the feeling that could touch the reader’s heart. That’s what I thought. But I know there’s a different between writing a fanfic and novel. Basically people come to read fanfic about their bias ones, that’s enough to give them the enjoyment.

TINA:  Thoughts on how you felt when you see the first comment on the first story? Do remember who is the first commenter?
KIMMI:  I do. I’m an observance type of person. The name is catzchii. ^^ Am I a creepy author to remember this? Lol. This person has been following me from winglin.net. Even that website also doesn’t exist anymore. I appreciate my readers and those who ever dropped comments. I would easily notice them. Because I even make a chart of how much readers I gain or loss for every chapter I’ve updated. From that I recognized each of my readers’ names. So, based on this I can see if the flow of the story was getting interesting or not. If the chart shows my subs number dropped, so I know that I need to revise the plotline instead of dropping the story, or delete it. This might sound too serious for writing a fanfic right…^^ But that’s how I grown with my writing, from a foolish type of story to mature ones. But now, I don’t have time to study like that anymore. Maybe later I will catch up again. Lol!

TINA:  How do you prepare yourself before writing a fanfic?
KIMMI:  No preparation. Once the idea bugging your head, just open anything… your tab, phone or laptop, then start typing!

TINA:  Do you work out plot line or do you prefer to see where your ideas or inspiration take you?
KIMMI:  Some fics I like the ideas or inspirations comes, just like ‘My boo is all I wanted’ or ‘My boo is all I need.’ But mostly I already see how the story will ended. For example like my fics ‘Clarity of love’ and ‘Indisputable love’, I’ve already arranged the plot line of the stories. If later another idea come, I’ll just revise them.

TINA:  When and how does your inspiration or muse come to you?
KIMMI:  Random. It just comes like that, and when that time happened, I just need to type it down on my phone.

TINA:  What is the weirdest place you were struck by inspiration for your fanfic? Did you write the plot?If yes what is the title of the fanfic?
KIMMI:  Mostly people brain will start roaming when they are in silence or alone right? So… most of the time at night before we sleep, or where else we could be alone if not in the toilet doing the business. Lol! I was in the toilet and that was when the idea for ‘Makeover’ came. XD

TINA:  How much research do you do for your story?
KIMMI:  Hmm… not much. Just when I feel the need to research on something I’m not exposed or used to for the character’s profession or something, I’ll study beforehand.

TINA:  What is the easiest part of writing?
KIMMI:  When there’s a gush of ideas, and your hand can’t stop typing.

TINA:  What is the hardest part of writing a story?
KIMMI:  When run out of ideas, and your hand stop typing.

TINA:  The writer’s worst nightmare the dreaded writer’s block.
When is the worst writer’s block you ever had? How did you overcome it?
KIMMI:  Oh, this is my weakness! It took me so long. Not days, months…but years. It happened on my first fanfic, ‘Vacant of heart’. That’s why the fic might be the first fanfic I write, but not the first one to complete. I do nothing, it just the feeling of dislike to finish what I’ve started is strong. So I forced myself to still write it even couldn’t see how it will end, and slowly the feeling and the muse comeback. I hate abandon the thing.

TINA:  Any useful tips on how to overcome the writer’s block?
KIMMI:  Hmm… I don’t know if it working on other writers, but for me I would watching Yunjae’s video, listening to any music that could inspired me based on its lyrics. But there’s another method that worked on me, I would usually reread my old completed fanfics so the inspiration will break my writer’s block. :D

TINA:  Have you written any collaboration with other author’s? If yes name of the fanfic.
KIMMI:  Nope.

TINA:  How do you describe your writing style? Do you think you have your own personal writing style?
KIMMI:  I prefer to write as a third person actually. And a very long chapter per update. But sometimes I’m afraid I just scribbled something unnecessary, the chapter becomes lengthy, and the reader getting bored of it.

TINA:  How do you think you have evolved creatively throughout the years? Do you notice any change in the way you write?
KIMMI:  Obviously I did notice. Just compared the first 3 fanfics I wrote with the latest ones. I admit that I feel embarrassed of my old fics. Some were badly written, in term of grammar. (>_<)

TINA:  How important are readers and their comments?
KIMMI:  As I’ve mentioned… My readers are my biggest supporters. Their comments are my source of encouragements. So, both are important.

TINA:  I have been a silent reader for few months before taking the steps to comment..Any words for silent readers?
KIMMI:  For silent readers, a simple word of ‘done reading’ also will do. At least I know, there’s more people have read what I wrote. :)

TINA:  Do you read other yunjae fanfics? If yes name of the fanfic you loved?
KIMMI:  Lots. There are lots of other awesome YunJae fanfics out there.  But the one that I love the most is the one that able to make me cry and woke up the next morning to class with red-swollen eyes a long ago. I cried so much when read it. It’s titled, ‘My Lovely Kim Jaejoong’. I don’t know… I love this story up until now. The story has it all, beautifully written, full of emotions, and well-plotted. It’s a very old story and the author has stop writing like since ages ago. For a fluff, cute adorable fanfics, my favourite are ‘Possessive’ and ‘Only the ring finger knows’. All these stories are written on winglin before. And some have been reposted on asianfanfic by other, I think.

TINA:  Are you friends with any other author’s?
KIMMI:  Yes… mostly here in aff.

TINA:  How do you make your stories standout when there are heaps of other stories with similar plot lines?
KIMMI:  I don’t know, because I never think any strategy for that. I just write it in my own style. The rest is all about the readers will keep following it or not.

TINA:  Has anyone stole your story and published under their name?
KIMMI:  Yes, I found few written in Indonesian, Vietnamese and Spanish. Some have emailed me personally, asking for permission. But some didn’t. At first I don’t understand why the poster of my stories could be on the foreign site, but when I google translate it was 100% a copy of my fic. That was when I decided to start locking my fics.

TINA:  Thoughts on others stealing your work?
KIMMI:  It was not nice to steal other people story and even the artwork without credit to its original author or creator.

TINA:  How do you manage your time between your daily activities and updating stories?
KIMMI:  Ugh, I hate this question… because I failed to manage my time that’s why I keep being on hiatus. Don’t ask me this, because the only answer I could give is failure. T_T

TINA:  Do you have any favorite time of the day to write stories?
KIMMI:  Yesss… at night when everyone sleep. ^^

TINA:  your favorite genre to write?
KIMMI:  Romance, drama, fluff!


ALL ABOUT THE STORIES............

TINA:  Tells us a few words on the fanfic “LOVE ON RIDE”.Inspiration behind this fanfic?
KIMMI: This one is inspired by a shojou  manga (comic) I forgot the title. It’s been so long, about yunjae high school life.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“THIS CLUMSINESS”.
KIMMI:  At first I just feel the need to write about JaeSu. More like a brotherly relationship, but then it turn out to be so dramatic once Yunho also get into the story. Lol! And I like to make a slight twist to the story.

TINA: Tell us about
“VACANT OF HEART”?
KIMMI:  I just feel the urge to write about Jaejoong getting revenge on Yunho who was already in a crushed state. Sometime I can be a sadistic author when the mood comes. ^^

TINA:  Inspiration behind the fanfic
“HE IS ALL THAT”?
KIMMI:  This fanfic is a mixed of my idea and a manga titled ‘Hot gimmick’.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“CLARITY OF LOVE”?
KIMMI:  My first Yunjae forcedly-married fanfic. The feeling when write this story is always overwhelming! A bittersweet feeling.

TINA: Tells us about the fanfic
“BACK TO TOMORROW”. thoughts and inspiration behind the fanfic?
KIMMI:  It started with the feeling to write about Yunjae in a student-teacher relationship. And after keep pondering into it, the idea just expanded itself.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“MY BOO IS ALL I WANTED”.
KIMMI:  This is the only fanfic that I don’t have any plotline arranged. Just write it without knowing how it’s going to end.

TINA: Can we hope for an update in the near future for the sequel

“MY BOO IS ALL I NEED”?
KIMMI:  Yes, I’m going to update it soon.

TINA: Few words on the fanfic
“MAKEOVER”?
KIMMI:  I've fun when write this one. Maybe because the story is not too heavy. I’ve plan to write an epilogue tho.

TINA: Few words on the three shot
“STILL”. inspiration behind this bitter sweet fanfic.
KIMMI:  Oh, this one… how to say it. It's my first dead-fic ever. The idea of writing it just popped up in my mind when I was listening to this korean song, ‘walking through the time of remembrance’ by Nell. When I listened to it while study the lyric, the idea of this story just came to me smoothly.

TINA:  Still writing or have you stopped now?
KIMMI:  Still writing.

TINA:  Any future yunjae fanfics you are working on?
KIMMI:  What a question… haha… For now, I have three-shot fanfic. It’s already complete but I’m afraid to post it because I have another long-awaited-unfinished fanfics line up to be update, my readers will throw a tantrum if I ever dare to post a new one when others are not updated like ages. (>_<)  But, still considering posting it soon since it’s already done.


All ABOUT SMUT.....

TINA: Tells us why are we so interested to read taboo topics when it comes to yunjae? Ex.incest ,cheating,home wrecker etc.
KIMMI:  It’s because we’ve been craving to watch their interaction again, or due to our passion or obsess toward the couple? I don’t know about everyone else, but for me it’s simply because of Yunho and Jaejoong we discussed about. For a fan that has been following them for so long, we know how close they are even before their debut, during those years of training. And what kind of life and hardships they have been through together. Even watching a small interaction of these two could bring an excitement and feeling warm inside.

TINA:  How difficult or easy is writing smut?
KIMMI:  Very difficult for me who rarely write it. Lol. Truthfully… I’m not a smut writer. My readers know… most of my fics are clean to read. ^^ Only few fics that I feel the need to write smut and have a reason to do so, then I’ll do. I’m not into smut actually.

TINA:  Do you blush or get embarrassed while writing smut?
KIMMI:  Hmm… just feel natural after tried to dismiss that embarrassment. XD

TINA:  How do you write the sex scene? What is the inspiration?
KIMMI:  Haha… what a difficult question… seriously making me feel awkward. ^^ Well, just read ones from other YunJae’s story.

TINA:  Have you ever watched GV(gay videos) before writing a smut scene? (U can choose to ignore this if u doesn’t want to answer)
KIMMI: Oh, honestly never.

TINA:  Has any family member or friends have ever walked on you while writing a sex scene?
KIMMI:  Never.

TINA:  Thoughts after writing your first ever sex scene?
KIMMI:  I have a doubt to delete the chapter. Lol!

TINA:  What is the secret of writing a sex scene that turns on your readers?
KIMMI:  I don’t think it will make anyone turn on. My smut-writing is not that smutty. I would love to call it a love-making, rather than just blindly write without a reason. Usually I’ll write it when a certain part in the chapter needed it.

TINA:  It is so heart breaking when u see your favorite authors deleting their journals or accounts, taking away the chance to reread some of your favorite stories… and having those wonderful stories lost.. Have you anytime in future have plans on deleting your journal?
KIMMI:  No…

TINA:  Any words for the readers?
KIMMI: I’m back now and IL (Indisputable Love will be constantly updated by now).

KIMMI: There’s no special reason behind the name. I was eating kimbab while reading YunJae fanfic when the idea to use kimbab as my author name popped out in my head. It’s just random. It’s easy to remember tho. And the attachment of ‘ssi’ (Korean noun as ‘Ms’) just to make it sound more like human, rather than food. XD I do want to change it after that, but decided not to when the readers already started to know me as kimbab-ssi. ^^

KIMMI: Lots of receipts and bank slips. XD

TINA: 2 things you cannot live without?
KIMMI: Hand phone and music.

TINA: If u get to meet one celebrity either dead or alive who will it be and why?
KIMMI: Can I choose five? Because I would choose the 5 members of dbsk. Their music keeps me going and always cheered me up during my study years, helped reduce my stresses. Their popularity era really left such beautiful nostalgic moments to me. If I still have to choose one, then…it will be Jung Yunho. Simply because it’s him, a gentleman, manly and I love that leadership character of him.

TINA: I am obsessed with______ fill it?
KIMMI: Bunnies.

TINA: If you are to write your life story what will the title be?
KIMMI: ‘A loner’ or ‘A clumsy’. (>_<)

TINA: Goal in life:
KIMMI: Travel around the world.

TINA:How do you describe yourself?
KIMMI: Clumsy!

TINA: Lastly feel free to include anything else u wants us to know…
KIMMI: I know and aware of my slowness and constant disappearance from this site. Even to response for this interview… I’ve this doubt if there’s anyone who still want to read about me. I’ve gone so long. But I just want to tell my readers if they’re still checking on me; I might take so long to update my stories, but I will never abandon, leave them unfinished or delete my stories. So rest assured, and wait the update from me. My readers are my biggest supporters. Their comments are my source of encouragements. :)

END OF PART 1.

GETTING TO KNOW APHAEIIA............

PART 3 ALL ABOUT YUNJAE............

TINA: What does Yunjae represent to you?
APHI: My parents lol. I love them so much and just want them to be happy. Whether that’s with each other or someone else, as long as they’re happy, I’m happy.

TINA: Why are we obsessed with Yunjae?
APHI: Because they look the best with each other. Also, that overwhelming sexual tension when they’re in the same space.

TINA: Why is that Yunjae in stories can do anything and we support them?
(Ex: affair, Incest, homewrecker)
APHI: Because I think in the end we just want them together, no matter the cause.

TINA: Tomorrow headlines Jaejoong confirms he is in a relationship with a girl. How do you feel?
APHI: As long as he’s happy, yayy.

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?
APHI: Sad that they had to hide their relationship. I just want my boys to be happy lol!

TINA: How real is Yunjae and how much is in fact Fan service?
APHI: Yunjae is realer than real. They had fan service moments because of course SM knew their popularity, and companies tend to push that fan service for their own means. But it’s the moments in between the fan service that make you wonder. They have an undeniable pull between them.

TINA: Do you think Jaejoong is gay?
APHI: Personally, yes

TINA: When Yunjae comes out publicly……..
APHI: I will cry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (omg don’t do that to my emotions lol)

TINA: Do you think they meet secretly and still friends or even lovers?
APHI: Hell yeah! There’s way too many “coincidences”. They think they’re sneaky little shits but think again yunjae!

TINA: I heard Jaejoong sonsNine is for Yunho even though he denied it?What do you think?
APHI: My yunjae heart says it was for Yunho.

TINA: What is about Yunjae that makes you sacrifice your time and energy upon writing fictions..
APHI: I wish I knew so I could stop! lol

TINA: Your future plans for fanfics?
APHI: There’s a lot I have planned, but I’m not going to post anymore incomplete stories until I finish some of my previous ones. I will post any oneshots I write though.

TINA: Thoughts on homosexuality?
APHI: Everyone deserves to love and be loved in return. Who you find that love with is your choice.

TINA: What do you think of people who think homo sexuality is a sin and a disease which can be cured?
APHI: Ruderuderuderuderuderude!

TINA: What do you think we should do to make the world accept homosexuality?
APHI: Change starts with us. Educate yourself and your friends and family to be tolerant and respectful of others life choices. Then hopefully they can pass that on to their friends/family.

TINA: In the future your kid comes out to you. What will you do?
APHI: Support them with all the love and affection in the world.

TINA: Pride or love?
APHI: Tough lol. I want to say love but realistically I’m a very prideful person and would probably go that route.

TINA: Love to me is…………
APHI: Idk bro I’m not that deep lol

TINA: Do you believe in love at first sight?
APHI: Yes

TINA: What are your views on Yoochun scandal?
APHI: No comment

TINA: Since junsu has been in a relation with a girl has yoosu ship sunk?
APHI: I don’t think shipping necessarily means you think the couple is truly together, you can just like the dynamic between two people. So no, as long as people keep supporting yoosu, the ship isn’t going to sink.

TINA: How did you react to the news of “Yoochuns” upcoming marriage?
APHI: So happy for him!

TINA: I have read somewhere that Jae and chun are looking more like lovers than friends..what do you think?
APHI: I mean they are super close and Jaejoong is a very physical person so it’s easy to see why that was said. But it’s hard to be with Yoochun when Jung Yunho is your man.

TINA: Are we deluding ourselves by making these OTP’s?
APHI: Nah


SOME RANDOM QUESTIONS.......

TINA: Opinions on plastic surgery?
APHI: Do whatever makes you happy. If you want to change something, that’s between you and you only. I see nothing wrong with making yourself happy.

TINA: Do you think jaejoong’s in famous beauty had help from the plastic surgeon?
APHI: Have you seen homeboy’s pre-debut pics??? He got 98% of help from God himself. Maybe he used 2% to tone it a little but he’s so gorgeous I cry myself to sleep!

TINA: Why should we be obsessed with pop idols when they don’t even know we exist?
APHI: They don’t owe us anything. We obsess on our own terms for our own means. And I’m sure they love their fans but we can’t expect them to acknowledge a billion of us individually lol.

PART 2 ALL ABOUT WRITING FANFICTIONS...


TINA:  How and when did you decide to be a fanfic author?
APHI:  I started writing back in 2012, which is also when I started reading fanfiction. I read only yunjae back then, and there were some amazing stories and I never thought I could write because I never thought I’d b`e good lol. But then one night, for some weird reason, I got the idea for my first fic, “Yunho vs. Changmin”, and I just had to write it. I was super nervous to post it but people were so nice and encouraged me to keep writing and I did. And now, writing is one of my most favorite hobbies.


TINA:  What made you to sit down and actually write something?
APHI:  I got the idea for Yunho vs. Changmin literally as I was trying to go to sleep and had an early lecture the next morning lol. I kept trying to convince myself that it’s not good and just forget it and go to sleep! But it just wouldn’t leave my head and I laid in bed just thinking about it. Finally, I got up, grabbed my laptop, and wrote it haha

TINA:  What is the first fanfic you completed?
APHI:  Yunho vs. Changmin

TINA:  How did you get your idea for your first fanfic?
APHI:  You know when you’re trying to fall asleep and random thoughts just pass through your head, it was literally that lol

TINA:  Have you had any prior experience of writing before your first fanfic?
APHI:  Nope

TINA:  Have you ever plagued by doubts on your storyline?
APHI:  Oh for sure lol. I never plan out my fics. I just start writing and see where that takes me. It sucks because you do get stuck much faster that way, but I hate planning and feel more comfortable thinking of a storyline as I go along.

TINA:  How did you promote your fanfic to readers?
APHI:  I never did. I’m too lazy for that lol.

TINA:  Have you ever been anxious about how the readers receive your story?
APHI:  I used to be super anxious about it in the past, but I’ve gotten over it now.

TINA:  Thoughts on how you felt when you see the first comment on the first story? Do remember who is the first commenter?
APHI:  Omg I cannot explain the elation when I read my first comment. Posted by krishti on Yunho vs. Changmin:
Kyaaaaaa I love.it
Cant wait for the bet to start ^^
I was probably smiling like a maniac when I read that and just bouncing in my seat haha. I had 60 subscribers by the time I finished that short 6 chaptered fic and I will never forget how happy that made me.

TINA:  How do you prepare yourself before writing a fanfic?
APHI:  I do not lol. I get an idea and start writing immediately, no planning or preparation is involved. It’s not a good strategy, but it’s my strategy XD

TINA:  Do you work out plot line or do you prefer to see where your ideas or inspiration take you?
APHI:  See where the inspiration takes me. I like not knowing where I’m heading with it because that’s exciting to me. If I had the path planned, I’d be less interested in writing it.

TINA:  When and how does your inspiration or muse come to you?
APHI:  Randomly. It’s not something I can pinpoint.

TINA:  What is the weirdest place you were struck by inspiration for your fanfic? Did you write the plot?If yes what is the title of the fanfic?
APHI:  Me and my cousins were in line for a ride in Disney World that took 2 hours. So while we were waiting, we played a lot of games to pass the time. One of the games was telephone, where one person thinks of a line/phrase and whispers is to the person next to them, who then whispers it to another person, until it finally reaches the last person and they say the line out loud. If you’ve never played telephone before, the original line is always changed drastically by the time you get to the end. We laughed and had a lot of fun and when I got home, I thought I should write a fanfic similar to that. So I wrote “Hey, can you tell Yunho…” :)

TINA:  How much research do you do for your story?
APHI:  Minimum. I tend to write about topics I’m comfortable with and already have knowledge of, because I’m very lazy lol. But, if I am writing about something I don’t know about, I will research the hell out of it.

TINA:  What is the easiest part of writing?
APHI:  Opening the Word document to start writing, everything following that sucks lol

TINA:  What is the hardest part of writing a story?
APHI:  Everything! Writing is not easy, I have soooo much respect for all writers.

TINA:  The writer’s worst nightmare the dreaded writer’s block.When is the worst writer’s block you ever had? How did you overcome it?
APHI:  The worst writer’s block I ever had was 3 years ago. Two people left comments on one of my fic, which weren’t nasty, but were inherently very rude. And just how they said them, I had a massive surge of self-doubt in not just that fic, but all of my fics. After that, every time I sat down to write, I was just stuck. No matter which story I tried, I couldn’t come up with anything. That block stayed with me for 3 years. It’s sad I know lol, but I was completely demoralized afterwards and couldn’t even read my own stories without getting depressed. But recently, I’ve grown thicker skin and started writing again.

TINA:  Any useful tips on how to overcome the writer’s block?
APHI:  Don’t force yourself. If you make your writing a chore, you’ll start hating it. Step away and when inspiration strikes, it strikes. Don’t worry, you’ll get there :)

TINA:  Have you written any collaboration with other author’s? If yes name of the fanfic.
APHI:  Nope.

TINA:  How do you describe your writing style? Do you think you have your own personal writing style?
APHI:  I do think I have a personal writing style. I tend to focus a lot on comedy and lightheartedness above everything else. With the majority of my stories, my goal is to make people laugh. That is also because I hate angst fics lol so I tend to focus on the comedy. I just want to give me and my readers an escape and hopefully bring a little smile into their day :)

TINA:  How do you think you have evolved creatively throughout the years? Do you notice any change in the way you write?
APHI:  Significant changes omg. Practice makes perfect and when I started, I wrote like a new writer, it’s obvious from my early stories. Now, I focus a lot more on the writing structure and make sure my story is balanced between description and dialogue. In terms of what I like to write though, that hasn’t changed. I still enjoy reading and writing the same types of fics from when I started.

TINA:  How important are readers and their comments?
APHI:  Very important. I’ve been lucky enough to make a lot of friends on asianfanfics and it always brings a smile to my face when I see the same usernames in my comments section. Even new people make me so happy. Commenters are just so lovely!

TINA:  I have been a silent reader for few months before taking the steps to comment..Any words for silent readers?
APHI:  No one’s obligated to leave me comments. If being a silent reader is your thing, you do you. Just thank you for even reading my stuff :)

TINA:  Do you read other yunjae fanfics? If yes name of the fanfic you loved?
APHI:  I used to read nothing but yunjae lol. I think I exhausted every fic in the fandom. I can’t even pick a favorite, we have some really amazing writers in the fandom.

TINA:  Are you friends with any other author’s?
APHI:  So many haha

TINA:  How do you make your stories standout when there are heaps of other stories with similar plot lines?
APHI:  I like to think it’s with my comedy. Just from personal experience I’ve noticed there’s a lot of drama/angst fics but not enough comedy ones. And I only like reading the comedy ones so that’s what I tend to write too. But idk.

TINA:  Has anyone stole your story and published under their name?
APHI:  So far, no, thank god *fingers crossed*

TINA:  Thoughts on others stealing your work?
APHI:  Please don’t lol

TINA:  How do you manage your time between your daily activities and updating stories?
APHI:  Not much to balance since I don’t write under a schedule. I only write when inspiration hits, and when that does, I stop everything to write.

TINA:  DO you have any favorite time of the day to write stories?
APHI:  Nope


ALL ABOUT SMUT...

TINA:  So tells us why are we so interested to read these taboo topics when it comes to yunjae?
APHI:  They’re so fucking perfect together. In looks and personality. So I think no matter the situation, we always want them to end up together.

TINA:  How difficult or easy is writing smut?
APHI:  So fucking hard lol. There’s a very fine line between sexy and cringe.

TINA:  Do you blush or get embarrassed while writing smut?
APHI:  Nah

TINA:  How do you write the sex scene? What is the inspiration?
APHI:  Yunjae is the inspiration lol. How do you look at them and not want them all up on each other??!!

TINA:  Have you ever watched GV before writing a smut scene?
APHI:  I’ve never watched anything before writing smut

TINA:  Has any family member or friends have ever walked on you while writing a sex scene?
APHI:  Lol no

TINA:  Thoughts after writing your first ever sex scene?
APHI:  “This fucking sucks”

TINA:  What is the secret of writing a sex scene that turns on your readers?
APHI:  I’m not good at writing smut so idk. As a reader though, I would have to say the more you take your time writing it, covering the details and emotions, the hotter it is. My smut sucks because I tend to rush through it. With yunjae, I think 90% of the turn on is that it’s yunjae.

TINA:  Still writing or you stopped now?
APHI:  Still writing.

TINA:  Future yunjae projects?
APHI:  Soooooo many, jfc, so so many.

TINA:  Have you anytime in future have plans on deleting your journal?
APHI:  I have a livejournal but I don’t use it. I write on asianfanfics and I would never delete it. Even if I stopped writing, I would keep the account as an archive of my work.

TINA:  Any words for the readers?
APHI: I loveeee you guys so much, thank you for your constant support :)
