omg unnie…. TT.TT I don’t come here often but omg you’re making me smile right now. You’re a beautiful person too Unnie. I LOVE YOU.
Thanks for the question Anon!! Don’t worry, I got your other message that this is suppose to be a question. :) I’m gonna make it that VIXX can choose these superpower gifts. Some of what I’m gonna choose aren’t going to be “traditional” superpowers, but I think it’s what they would choose AS a superpower if they could be given one.
N: I think he would choose a superpower that makes it so he never gets tired/never has to sleep/endless supply of energy. N loves what he does and is very active and happy, but he tries to do so much that he has the tendency to wear himself out (though he’d never let his fans see it). He loves to work, choreographing, dancing, singing, participating in radio shows or tv programs, etc. But I think the one thing he dislikes is that he has to stop to sleep or rest, and he sees that time as being wasted or that it could be better spent another way. Being over-tired or sleepy makes it so he can’t get as much done when he wants to. If he was able to have endless energy, he could not only fit more into his schedules and become something like a “super idol”, doing lots and lots of stuff, he could also spend more time with fans before or after a show or at a fan signing because he wouldn’t have to go home and sleep afterwards - he could just get right back to work and never be worn out by any of it. :)
Leo: Leo tends to be shy and quiet around strangers (he himself has said he’s not great with strangers at first). And he can also get quite shocked/embarrassed when something random happens that he either didn’t see coming or someone says something he didn’t expect. I think Leo would choose the super power to be able to read minds or maybe one that allows him to see into the future by a few minutes. If he was able to read minds, he would be able to know someone’s intentions or what they are feeling which could help him to trust people sooner or be able to communicate with them more freely sooner. He would also be able to tell what someone is going to ask him or have him do before it happens, which would give him more time to think of a response or how he wants to react to a situation, which would cut out the awkward pauses Leo sometimes has (which I think is totally cute, but sometimes I feel it may be burdensome to him how people always draw attention to it). This could also help him feel a bit more confident about participating on variety shows and chatting with people as well. It would NOT change his personality at all, but it could make him feel more comfortable in situations he can’t control. If he could see into the future by a few minutes, Leo could get himself OUT of situations that would embarrass him or make him uncomfortable BEFORE they happen or could help him come to terms with what was about to happen so he is more at ease if he can’t get out of the situation (The Gwiyomi Player thing he was forced to do on ASC was cute…. but it was also painful for me to watch because you could tell just how much he DIDN’T want to do it and how uncomfortable he was and I didn’t like that at all). Also, seeing into the future could help him avoid injury when playing sports (knowing what moves he should or should not do) and if he really wanted, Leo could use this ability to see what moves the other members were going to choose for Scissors Paper Rock (kawi-bawi-bo/kai-bai-bo) so that he doesn’t always have to cheat to win. LOL!! I do think though that he would want this power to have sort of an “On/Off” switch. Leo wouldn’t want to ALWAYS see the future, nor would he want to constantly hear what is on everyone’s mind every second of the day…. it would annoy him if he couldn’t turn it off.
Ken: I could see Ken possibly choosing 2 different superpowers as well. The first possibility would be “Super Health/Super Healing”. Ken is very passionate about singing, and as a singer myself I know just how devastating it can be to get sick. You sometimes can’t sing for WEEKS just because some stupid virus made your voice sound awful, and trying to use your voice while sick has the severely damage your voice, sometimes permanently. Not that Ken gets sick easy, but if he could avoid it all together or at LEAST get over it really fast to keep damage to his voice low, I really think he would. Also, if he ever DID damage his voice, he could heal it really really fast with “Super Healing” as his power. :) A second option would be the ability to learn extremely quickly and retain that knowledge permanently. It is no secret that Ken loves speaking english whenever possible. He loves singing english songs and joking around using english too. But I also think he wants to be able to speak english really well so that he can communicate with international fans better. If Ken had some sort of super learning/understanding and memory retention superpower, he would learn everything there is to know about english ASAP and use it all the time. But hey, why stop with english?! Ken would learn ALL the languages he could!! He is a real “people-person” and he truly loves communicating with his fans, and if he knew every language there would be no stopping!! And I’m almost positive his favorite part of it all would be being able to communicate jokes and funny things to fans who don’t speak korean. :)
Ravi: I think Ravi would choose a superpower that allowed him to control time. He is a SUPER sleepy guy, and tries to find times to nap whenever possible, both because he’s tired but also because he likes sleep and relaxing. If he could control time, he would slow time to an almost freeze for everything else but him when it was bedtime so that he could get as many hours of sleep as he wanted within only a few seconds, and then when he was finally fully rested he’d move time forward to when he was actually suppose to wake up and then let it move at the normal speed again. BUT, I think Ravi’s power would come with the ability to also control how fast time moved for other people as well (full time manipulation powers). This way he could allow his members to share in the extra sleeping time as well so that they are ALL fully rested all the time. Ravi is a super caring person and wants all of his members to be happy and healthy all the time. He’d also use this power whenever he had a girlfriend in the future. Time with her would be quite limited because he’s an idol, and dating in general would be difficult because it would be best to keep a relationship secret for his career’s sake this early in the idol game. Ravi would be able to manipulate time to nearly freeze for everyone and everything except him and his girl. He’d be able to take a week long vacation with her if he wanted to when only a true minute’s time had passed. A nice side effect to this is that he and his girl could go anywhere in public and do whatever they wanted, because to the general population they would be moving so fast they’d be undetectable. An open and free NORMAL relationship for Ravi without the risk to his career (because no one would know the relationship existed unless he wanted them to). :)
Hongbin: I think Hongbin would be simple and choose something like “Super Strength” or “Super Reflexes” or “Super Speed”. Hongbin seems like the hero type guy, and helping others would be what he would want to do the most. If there was something you can’t lift, call Hongbin. If something’s about to fall over and break or make a mess, don’t worry cause Hongbin will catch it. Did you just run out of milk but the store closes in 2 minutes? Super fast Hongbin will be there and back in 30 seconds!!! I don’t know why, but he just seems like that kind of guy to me. If I had to pick which one of those 3 he would most likely go with though it would be “Super Speed”. The only reason I say this is because Hongbin likes things to be neat and clean and STAY that way, and he’s often said that sometimes people don’t pick up after themselves at the dorm and he will clean it up just because he wants it clean, not cause they wont do it. If he had “Super Speed”, he would be able to clean the whole dorm before you could blink an eye! Never messy again!! :) Being so speedy could definitely help in more than just this kind of a situation, but it’s really the only example I can think of that’s just perfect for Hongbin right now. Haha!!
Hyuk: Hyuk is such a silly and fun boy that I don’t think he’d necessarily pick a superpower that had a specific “practical” usage. He’d choose something that can be used for the fun of it!! I think he’d choose something like the ability to fly or the ability to turn invisible. If he chose the power of flight it would be because…. well…. HE COULD FLY. And holy crap would he just fly all over the place!! He’d also probably levitate in mid-air just randomly for the heck of it instead of sitting on a chair or something. It would be something he could use as a “Hey… look what I can do!!!” type thing. If he chose the ability to turn invisible, oh my gosh he would completely TERRORIZE N with it!!! He’d go invisible, sneak up on N all quiet like, and then out of nowhere just turn visible again screaming “BOO!!!!!” and scaring the crap out of him!!! I could even see him turning invisible to just keep tapping N on the shoulder or poking him or flipping his hair, but when N looked no one would be there and it would annoy him so much….. and Hyuk would laugh his butt off about it!! Or, he’d use his power to just plain spy on any of his hyungs. Oh man, Hyuk with superpowers… I really wish this could happen cause that would all just be hilarious!!! Haha!! :)
Hi Anon!! Thank you very much!! I’m happy you like it!! :D And thank you for the question!
A long distance relationship with anyone is always going to be difficult, but with Hongbin it would be well worth it. Hongbin is such a loving and caring guy. He is a strong guy not doubt, and can be quite silly, hyper and carefree at times, but he is also very sensitive to emotions and feels them deeply himself. He would always want his girlfriend to know just how much he loves her, even though he can’t be with her all the time.
Hongbin would love to talk on the phone to hear his girlfriend’s voice, but he also seems like the type that would send cute little texts to his girlfriend at any time, not just at set times throughout the day like a morning text, lunch text and a goodnight text. Hongbin would just surprise his girlfriend randomly with silly or cute texts like “Ostriches are so weird” or “Oh my god Ravi and Ken are having an aegyo battle!! This is hilarious!” or “We’re learning a love song right now and I can’t stop thinking of you”. He wouldn’t let it get in the way of his work as an idol (he takes that very seriously) but any free moments would be spent this way.
Picture messages would be Hongbin’s main form of communication with his girl. We all know just how much he loves photography, and he would want to take as many beautiful pictures as possible of his world and the things he was experiencing to send to her. He would love if his girlfriend took pictures to send to him as well of everything around her, including beautiful selcas of herself, or if she had someone take pictures of her doing cute things like if she visited a zoo and got to pet a baby tiger or just something as plain as a candid photo of her washing the dishes at home. Hongbin would print out all the pictures he got of her to keep in a photo album and he might even hang some of his favorites on his bedroom wall in the dorm so her smiling face would be the first thing he sees when he wakes up and the last thing he sees before he goes to bed.
If Hongbin’s girl was international and not fluent in Korean (but was in english), he wouldn’t have too difficult of a time communicating with her. Hongbin’s english has just been getting better and better over the last year, and it was already pretty good to begin with. He would want to study english a LOT harder though so that he could talk more freely and comfortably with his girlfriend. He would also hope his girlfriend would take classes to learn as much korean as possible too. He would love spending time sharing cultural information with each other. Hongbin is proud of his korean heritage but is also very curious and interested in learning about other cultures as well, especially his girlfriend’s.
Video chatting with Hongbin would be super sweet. His eyes would light up the second he saw his girlfriend’s face, and it would be hard to keep from smiling and giggling the entire time they talked. Sometimes he might have to have her repeat what she was saying cause he would get sidetracked just staring at her face or admiring her beautiful eyes. He would also love to be playful and play little games like having staring contests via video chat. Sometimes before he heads to sleep, he might even want to have a video chat where he lays there being able to talk to his girlfriend and just be able to see her as he falls to sleep. And, if she is lucky, Hongbin’s girlfriend might even be treated to a performance of him singing while he plays guitar for her over video chat.
When Hongbin and his girlfriend finally get to see each other in person, his initial reaction would be to run to her and just hold her in a hug for a while, maybe even picking her up and just holding her. He wouldn’t be able to hold in a few happy tears during this emotional moment. He would pull away and hold her face, looking at every detail of it while smiling brightly, and eventually just resting his forehead on hers while they hold each other and sway lightly back and forth, almost like slow dancing to the music of their hearts. Hongbin would want to spend a lot of time alone in the hotel/house with his girlfriend just cuddling and being close, lots of sweet and passionate kisses too, but he would also want to take calm walks outside in beautiful settings. Maybe admiring the cherry blossoms in spring, or the changing colors of leaves during the fall, always walking hand-in-hand with his girl.
Hongbin wouldn’t necessarily use their rare times together to be… intimate *wink wink*… he is a traditional and extremely romantic guy, liking the idea of that being one of the special parts of marriage, but if he and his girlfriend were together long enough, and they both felt the timing was right, it would be a moment full of love, every emotion and desire being expressed with their whole bodies. Every touch would be cherished. Every breath filled with complete desire and passion. And it would always be done out of love, to be one with each other and experience the closeness, not because of lust.
Hongbin would definitely cry, just as his girlfriend would, when they had to leave each other’s side once more. This would probably be the hardest part for him. He wouldn’t be able to hide just how much his heart was aching. Sometimes he may even feel like he can’t bear to deal with how awful it feels to be away from the girl he loves. But there is no way he would give up on the relationship. He knows that for every sad or lonely moment away from her, there will be a future moment of pure happiness with her, and that one day he will never have to be away from her again. Hongbin will daydream of his future with her, of being a husband, of being a father, but he will enjoy every picture and text in between until that day arrives and will focus on and appreciate his time as an idol as well until then.
