hey everyone! i've had cam around here before, but i thought it was time to revamp him since it's been awhile since. he's twenty-five, born in vancouver but moved to los angeles when he was around seven years old. his parents got divorced and while some of his siblings went with his dad to seoul, he stayed with his mom in la. he didn't have a lot growing up and got kind of jaded by a lot of things happening around him which made him kind of a quiet, albeit rowdy personality. behind all of that moodiness though he's passionate about a lot and cares for the few people he hangs around with. at moment, he's in seoul after being here for around four years now doing a lot of art related things like designing graphics for clothing brands, magazines, pretty much anywhere he could contribute work and putting on exhibits for his paintings, etc.

i'd like all kinds of lines for him! cam's close with [info]mildang and [info]shibal so any mutual connections from that would be good. he could also use exes (m/f) and past flings, a roommate, maybe a cousin or step-siblings/half-siblings who he's trying to reconnect with while he's here, art collaborators, people who he's rubbed the wrong way, drunk arguments, everything!

hello hello! i thought i'd fish for some lines now that i have him mostly figured out. this is henry, a busan boy who works at innisfree and is really into skincare. personality wise he's kind of an airhead who tries to act cool and charming. he either gets away with and cringes inside or fails horribly making everyone around him secondhand embarrassed. he's generally nice, forgetful, kind of like goldfish eyecandy. he's currently studying beauty therapy, basically spa stuff, at seoul hoseo technical college and completed his military service already in 2013-2015.

i'd love more lines for him! he has [info]agape and [info]mouthfeel as childhood friends so busan babies come to me, and [info]shibal as another friend. he could use a roommate, or a cousin, people who visited innisfree and were lectured at by him for half a hour on proper skincare or the importance of wearing sunscreen, exes, former flings, apartments that his ugly cat pompom wanders into because he forgets to lock his door, other skincare enthusiasts, any other bloggers or social media types to connect with please teach him your ways, penpals or internet friends who know him well but are unaware of how he looks, someone he's accidentally offended and they're convinced he is an arrogant douchebag, people whose ex girlfriends or boyfriends he accidentally stole, secret admirers or someone for him to secretly admire for a bizarre reason, anything!

hi again! obviously there have been some big changes with benjamin here so i figured i'd repost his blurb and get him out there. though i've shifted around his backstory some in terms of family things he's still from vancouver/portland during the summers and moved to korea when he was 18 to follow his girlfriend at the time as well as to be near his best friend [info]mildang. he went to k-arts to study filmmaking and during school decided to start his own youtube channel as a way to practice the techniques he was learning. shockingly his dance covers and reaction videos ended up getting popular enough to earn him a way to stay in the country after graduating. however recently he shut down his channel with the explanation to his subscribers that he'd like to focus on his new job (an internship at inkigayo), when in fact it had more to do with a string of very nasty comments that got under his skin.

ben is a pretty neurotic person in general - tends to be all anxious smiles while his brain is going a million miles a minute about all the various things he needs to do and fix and change. that said he's a gentle spirit who cares a great deal for the world and the people in it, as can be seen from his extensive and frequent volunteer work. he also runs a meditation meetup in order to provide others with a space to relax and destress. for lines i could use the exchange student he followed to korea who was in vancouver for some or all of high school, exes and/or fumbled flirtations from the last couple years, people who attend his meetup group, korean language partners if anyone wants to practice english or thai with him in return, a subscriber who saw the mean comments before he shut everything down (more details on that if interested), and if you think he could fill anything else or just want to refresh previous lines please don't hesitate to ask!

hello everyone!! i am still in the process of figuring him out completely but i wanted to throw him out there to see if there was anything he could fill! this is youngjae, he's 20 and a seoul native who's studying architecture at snu. he's a very positive and friendly person, maybe a little overbearing or obnoxious sometimes sorry, but he usually means well. he loves playing matchmaker or generally meddling in people's love lives too because he thinks love and romance is just the most wonderful thing in the world. he's really into designing things and then making them reality, namely smaller pieces of furniture and other carpentry like things; he does it for fun and as a side cash thing too sometimes.

he's best friends with [info]lotus and close with [info]shibal too, so any connections there would definitely be welcomed! if anyone needs a roommate or a cousin too, i can swing that as well! also if anyone is looking for a coworker, i've been trying to settle on a part-time job for him. any lines would be great and i'm definitely up for brainstorming so please hit me up!

hi everyone, sorry for the double post, but i thought i'd post here again since kat's gone through a few changes with pb and backstory! i have her a little more fleshed out this time around and i now have her working at a cat cafe in hongdae even though she's allergic to cats but times are hard in 2017 and sometimes you have to lie about your allergies to get a job. that said, maybe a co-worker or two who thinks she's sick all the time or she just naturally has watery eyes? she also could use a bunch of video game nerd friends since she also live streams her playing league of legends on afreeca tv. she was also a business administration major at yonsei so classmates or potential job givers would be great since she doesn't want to work at a cat cafe forever!!

hello! i don't have a whole lot on her yet, but i thought that i might see if anyone needs anything filled before i get too in depth! this is whitney na ([info]chapssal's little sister). born in new york, left after high school graduation to go to university in paris, france. spent two years there and two in london for shits and giggles. recently moved to seoul to be closer to celine and to get a tiny grip on her personal heritage. i think i want to make her some kind of history nerd, so i'm thinking she went to university for humanities or curator studies! loves fashion more than anything, but doesn't have the confidence to go to fashion school. i think she's probably teaching history courses to elementary level kids right now (but this could change because i can't make up my mind). a little brash like her sister, but mostly reserved and quiet. living that misty may wannabe hippie life with personal heroes such as stevie nicks and janis joplin, always with little dreams of making it to coachella eventually. forever bitter that her mom named her after whitney houston when she was so close to being named after stevie. this is so rambly already, so she could use anything from childhood to high school friends, an ex (m/f) she left behind when she moved to paris, pen pals that she sent cute little packages to when she was living abroad, new york people, london people, paris people?, a bitter rival, someone who is intimidated by her rbf, someone who knows about her inner history nerd (so probably fellow library dwellers), anything and everything! i'm good for more in depth and complicated lines as well

hi everyone! this is probably a strange time to ask for lines, but let's take a stab at it anyway! this is katrina abayan, also known as kat and she's twenty-two and a concierge at a to-be-determined hotel in seoul who live streams playing league of legends on afreeca tv on the side. her backstory is a little complicated, but essentially she was born in chicago and moved to seoul when she was ten with her aunt, something she regularly has to explain when people are confused that she's fluent in korean when she looks like a foreigner. her personality is still in the works and probably something i won't figure out completely until she's interacted with people more, but i'd love a few lines to start! she could use co-workers, people who's stayed at the hotel or ever needed directions, maybe people she went to school with, pen pals, someone who's actually bumped into her on the street because she's not very graceful, video game nerds, people to get things lost in translation with, childhood friends and former schoolmates? *veruca salt voice* don't care how, i want it now!!

hi all! recently the inspiration bug hit and i thought i'd see if anyone was interested in having some lines filled. this is maeng hoon, a 21/22 year old studying the science of food at seoul national. he's been in south korea since he was about 14 years old and before that bounced from place to place as his father was a pilot for the us air force. he has a soft spot for crass humor, talks fast and loud when enthusiastic, and always loves to have a good time at parties and social events. he's incredibly bright but he's also irresponsible, lazy, and comes off as an airhead since he speaks before he thinks. he has a pretty characteristic cartoonish laugh may he #rip but he's come to embrace it. there is a tiny bit more about him here but it's all fresh, mind the mess. i may have a roommate for him but any other lines would be great! if anyone needs a buddy they rolled around with in hs i haven't yet decided where his family is from/moved to at that point in his life. he could also use a former girlfriend or two, classmates, anyone who'd know him through the catering company he works with, hobbyists who may have gone to a cooking class or two, someone(s) who are horrified by the messy state of his room, friends he goes out dancing with, current and former flings, people he's hit on with varying degrees of success, a chosen few who find his braying laugh grating, any and everything.

hello! as i'm now in the dreaded bio stage i thought it'd be a good time to introduce her a little and see what we can come up with! this is tomita miki, a 21 year old art student and part time babysitter. she's been here around 2 or 3 years? i'm bad at math so please excuse if that makes no sense, but she lives here now, so! she grew up in england and comes with the accent and extensive use of the letters u and s, is very friendly, open, cute and bubbly at first glance, not at all shy (sometimes to the point of tmi), ready for anything, and loves to talk, talk, talk. on the flipside she's impatient, short tempered, actually very easily bored and has a habit of leaving in the middle of things, be it conversations, films, whatever. she grew up very independent and it shows, and she's trying to mellow out and be less of a flake as she gets older but generally is happy being herself: soft on the outside, chewy on the inside. i have some more here and i'd really love anything! friend things, ex-things, an ex-roommate or current roommate who doesn't mind her tiny fluffy zoo, anyone she's rubbed the wrong way, people who put up with her restlessness, calm influences, bad influences, korean teachers, literally anything!!!

hey, everyone! i decided to try fishing for some lines now that i have her applied. this is hana. she's 27, an interior designer, and from a rather well off family thanks to her father's construction business. she's only recently moved into the apartment building, but she's lived in seoul her whole life. the reasoning behind her move is driven by the fact that she is the mother of [info]oddish's daughter, mijin, and she wants to get to know the both of them. when she was younger she lived in a rather strict household where the two goals taught to her was to study hard and look pretty, but in her university years she very much cut loose. reckless drinking, hooking up, etc, etc. when she became pregnant her parents sent her out of seoul to try and keep it quiet and since then hana has done a lot of traveling, she started up a business, and bowed out of a wedding. so! she could use all sorts of things. friends, cousins, maybe someone who had visited her while she was pregnant, people to bicker about designs with, fellow hikers, antique shoppers, whatever!

hey, guys! i'm giving aaron here a little makeover because i've been struggling a little bit with keeping up, so i thought i'd fish around for lines because a lot of his have disintegrated. the majority of you probably know about aaron, but i'll toss out a little overview anyway. aaron is a 22 year old registered nurse (graduating this month) for the snu children's hospital. he mukbangs on the side and has his own little tiny following on youtube! aaron grew up with a psychic medium for a mother and a businessman for a father, though his father passed away from a stroke his senior year of high school. he still manages to stay happy, though! he loves people and loves talking, and is generally a hyper little pup. i'm down to brainstorm anything, reinvigorate currently lines, or we can do friends through friends, whatever! he just needs a few more people to bother

hello all, just thought i'd throw him in here for a few lines since i have a little more on him! this is kenzo hayakawa, he's twenty-four and has been living in seoul for almost two years now. he currently works as a translator for arirang tv, plays in a punk band, and does a lot of music related things when he's not working. he was born in california, but moved a lot growing up since his dad is in the military. he lived in seoul for a couple years which pretty much solidified moving back after he finished college (ucla, majoring in japanese and korean). in terms of personality, he's an all-around fun guy to be around and the kind of person who isn't afraid of being a little bit silly if it means getting people to feel comfortable and open up more. he's always been the person people go to in a pinch, though he tends to spread himself thin and say yes to to many things. i'd love a few lines for him! he could always use friends from his younger days in seoul, american friends he knew for a brief time or kept in touch with, weird exes/past flings of both genders that he doesn't know how to talk to anymore, maybe people who have gone to parties he's dj'ed for or played in his band? i'm pretty much up for brainstorming anything you can think of!

hello friends! so i'm really bad at these, but i'm going to toss this guy out there while i sit down and write out his info. he's a 23-year-old busan native who came to seoul to study at snu, but dropped out after two years to become a flight attendant with kal instead. on the surface he's polite, friendly and basically the poster child of service industry ideals. on his days off he exercises his potty mouth, partakes in humanly pleasures and drinks liberally. most people who get beyond that surface layer tell him that he's not how he appears to be at all: mildly aloof, a little pretentious and hard to get truly close to. as for lines, he could use a little bit of everything: siblings, an ex or two, coworkers, college friends, childhood friends, people he can be a little more dependent and indulgent with, drinking buddies, casual hookups, someone he buys trinkets for on every trip out, that passenger who caught him throwing up in the toilet halfway through an overnight flight? let's work something out!

hey everyone! so i've decided to revamp cam since he's been pretty mia for the past few weeks. i'm also doing this while mobile so if there are any awkward autocorrrected words, please ignore them thank you!! there's more in his bio but basically this is cam, he was born in vancouver and moved to la when he was a small child. he graduated from ucla with a degree in fine art and did a lot of freelance work before deciding to move to seoul and work for a tattoo shop there which is obviously a very watered down version of the backstory but bear with me!! anyway i would love to refresh lines with all of you or even form new ones because i would love it all! he's kind of brash, doesn't really care about how he comes off, hates everything 99% of the time and this is where i'd probably say he's sweet underneath it all but that might not be the case either, i'm sorry!! lovely lines would include people he's tattooed, neighbors, people who know his twin [info]panduh, anything and everything thank you!

what an awful time for this! i posted in pbads earlier and immediately passed out after, so i thought i would post here and not give everyone one of those weird delayed replies. this is mizuki kaori, born and raised in kyoto, japan. she grew up pretty typically with two sisters and her mom and dad. after graduating from high school, lil eighteen year old kaori moved to new york city to attend the new york film academy to learn all about how to be an actress, with dreams and aspirations of returning to japan to star in j-dramas. but of course, fairytales aren't exactly built to last and kaori fell in Like with a boy and soon after, she decided to drop out of college so she could run away to seoul with said boy. parents disowned her, boyfriend broke up with her, and now she's attempting that cosplay life (the closest thing she can get to acting) while translating content for dramafever. personality wise, she's very extraverted with introverted tendencies. very polite but also condescending and passive aggressive to a fault. hobbies include people watching, finding her way into anime conventions, binging dramas all day long in her pajamas, attempting (and failing miserably) to bake things for the people in the apartment building, laughing at dumb memes on tumblr, and more jazz but i think this is getting long enough. there's more information in her bio but i could always use the boy she ran away from new york with (doesn't have to be romantically fueled at all), exes of either gender, friends who took her in after she got to seoul and her boyfriend broke it off, penpals, pals in general, a roommate, someone who attempts to cosplay with her, and a bunch of other things that i can't really think of right now because my stomach won't stop growling!

hello! now that i've applied her and have a solid idea of who she is, i figured i'd try to muck through one of these and put some feelers out. i'm terrible with these posts but anyway, this is danbi and she's a 28 year old eccentric pastry chef and youtuber who also runs and operates her own small etsy store! very sociable and outspoken, she's a bit of a people pleaser and just wants everyone to get along/tries to avoid confrontation as much as possible. kind of a creepy nerd, she's into everything from video games to true crime stuff like books and documentaries. generally she's very friendly to everyone, enjoys getting to know people and also really loves a good adventure. group hikes, camping trips and stuff like that are some of her favorite ways to spend the warmer months. oh yeah! she was actually born in montreal, raised there until she was about thirteen when her family uprooted to philadelphia, pennsylvania and she lived there until she was nineteen, since then she's lived in seoul! i feel like i've rambled on enough here already, there's some more in-depth info on her here if you feel like checking that out, otherwise i'm more than happy to brainstorm away and try to fill whatever she may be able to do for you all!

hello world i'm here to offer this goofy guy bang jaejin! i threw up some facts over here but the basics on him are that he's 27, your local friendly police officer, and a graduate from KNPU. he's a genuinely nice guy who likes dad jokes, acts like a big brother, and is generally an oblivious idiot when it comes to things like nuanced emotions. he's the eldest son and a busan native, but where he's from in sk is flexible! he was a recruit for the national football team when he was younger but tore his ACL and his dreams were crushed. i'd love some friends especially ones around his age, younger friends too to take care of and buy dinner for, drinking buddies, maybe a childhood friend or old penpal, blind dates gone wrong, lady exes particularly his high school sweetheart or a childhood crush, a guy for a roommate who has to put up with his messiness, soccer game regulars, everything. maybe even people he's arrested or confronted on the street as a police officer? any cats owners whose cats get stuck in trees? youth to educate him on what's cool and hip? let's brainstorm it up 😊

so much is pending about this guy right now, but i wanted to throw feelers out for lines before i got too in-depth. this is danny nam, 24, born and raised in queens, new york where he had all intention on staying before his life started to crash and burn after it was found out his fiance, his college sweetheart, was cheating on him. he lost his job for some reason or another (and i don't even know what he was doing quite yet), his apartment which ultimately forced him to move in with family for a short time, and he slipped right into a depressed state of being until he decided to say "screw everything" and moved to itaewon, perhaps on the insistence of someone he knew in the area, in late 2016. that is literally all i have and it is pretty loose, so i'm flexible when it comes to family, friends, etc.

i'd love to get any and all lines for him as he has zero right now! i'd love the friend who kicked his rear end into action when it came to moving, a roommate that forces him out to be social when he just wants to hermit, friends made during the last half year, neighbors, someone else to make quiet heart eyes at even though he isn't sure he is ready to jump into something committed, coworkers at tenkai where he waits tables every single day of the week and maybe a second, smaller part-time job he could work weekends at, whatever!

now that i've finally got this guy all applied and his bio is starting to slowly take shape, i thought i'd come in here and introduce him! this is taehyun kwang, twenty years old, and born and raised in sillim-dong, seoul. not the nicest or most wealthiest area in seoul by a long shot, but it was home. he grew up in a very toxic household, both of taehyun's parents were heavily into drinking and drugs but it didn't stop him from getting near perfect grades in school. he began working as an (underage) bartender to earn some extra cash along with [info]hardstyle. i'm not sure if he's still in that profession or if someone might have a better job for him, but if anyone needs any occupational stuff filled i can do that!! he comes across a little bit cold at first glance, but once people get to know tae they realize what a sweetheart he really is. he is loyal to a fault and would bend over backwards to help out a friend in need. he can be a bit of a goofball, childish, clumsy, extremely foul mouthed, flirtatious, and intelligent. i left his bio pretty much open to changes, so if someone needs something filled i can do that for you! his confidant/roommate is [info]freeskate but as for lines i'd love to see: maybe a couple of ex girlfriends or boyfriends, his siblings, family friends, cousins, or even people who frequented the bar he tended that he got to know him well? aghhh my mind is kind of all over the place right now, but i want all the things!!

although i've also just posted in ~pbads i wanted to put my feelers out. i've got him fairly figured out but not completely so please hang on for the nonsense i'm about to drop! this is ye-jun woo, he's 23, and has lived all over the world due to his family, started out in japan until he was eight then california followed by new york and now south korea. his mother is a very well known fashion designer and his now (deceased) father was a plastic surgeon. his mother remarried when he was 19 years old to an american sergent major who's currently positioned in the area. during all of this the one constant in ye-jun's life has been figure skating which he has been doing from a very young age, having a shot at the olympics at an early age, ye-jun injured himself and lost out on his shot. he still skates actively but no longer enters competitions and is starting to look into coaching. skate style i'm looking at this video just to give an idea of his skills.

that all said, he isn't a fan of his step-father, he's a work-a-holic aka he's always practicing and working out, he's friendly but is weird about really connecting due to his focus being elsewhere and always being taken away from friends, he has never been in a relationship (unless you count that one time he had to pretend to be in one for a play), he loves the paranormal, is multilingual and at times finds himself thinking in one language and speaking in another which often leads to humorous mistakes, he attended one year of college before moving to seoul and hasn't attended since. more to come on this front!

honestly i'd love people he knows/had connections with from anywhere he has lived in the past, online friends, fellow skaters, someone who might be his protégé? a roommate, someone determined make that connection with him, people to break him away from working, family on his mother's or father's side, anything at all!
