The Following Members have Escaped the Circus
- EXO: Byun Baekhyun
- VIXX: Cha Hakyeon (N)
Name: Kwon Sohee
Tent Assignment: #10 (Silver)
Home Island Cottage Assignment: #278
Skill: Luck Manipulation
Member Status: Since Kawaguchi, Japan
Performance Details: Sohee, for the most part, can’t make a performance on something that is virtually unseen. However, she does have a side tent where she can perform the tricks she learned from her mother and grandmother -reading palms or tea leaves, making “love potions,” reading someone’s fortune. But, for those who ask, and have some focusing tool for her, she will alter their luck in some way, it all like a typical fair fortune teller.
Personality: Sohee, even though she virtually grew up as a nomad, is a very regular person. She adores traveling, even though she longs for a stable home, and to her knowledge, she’s never had a person in her life for more than a month or so that aren’t family. Due to the fact she never had the chance to formulate a long term relationship with a person, she’s often very blunt and honest, while being laid back. She’ll try anything once, and has the bright curiosity of a child. Unlike her mother and grandmother, she doesn’t appear strange out of her gypsy clothes, and seems at home both in them and in a pair of jeans. Normalcy isn’t so hard for her to achieve, though aspects of her power still haunt her. She has a strong belief in fate and things happening for a reason, and is wildly superstitious, putting actual firm belief in black cats like some might put in the devil. She’s also a romantic, and tends to judge someone based on her gut instinct of them…however if they are judged badly, it takes superman effort to convince her otherwise from there on out. Sohee is also a romantic, constantly searching for her prince, while trying to help others find their soul mate as well. And she often can’t (or won’t) take a hint if someone isn’t interested.
Estimated date of return — March 19th.
It’s Moving Time, Freaks!
We are headed, by boat, to Asahikara! We haven’t quite made it out of Japan yet. Ringmaster Junsu has decided it is more cost-effective to continue to perform in the same country than try to scrape together enough money to make the journey to a different one. Looks like it’s time for you Freaks to brush up on your Japanese!
Asahikawa (旭川市 Asahikawa-shi) is located on Japan’s northernmost island, Hokkaido, and is the capital city of the Kamikawa Subprefecture. It is the second largest city on Hokkaido after Sapporo. It has a relatively small population, with only 352, 105 residents. Nevertheless, there are many touristic attractions to be found within the city, including the well-known Asahiyama Zoo and the Sugai Amusement Factory. For those of you courting that special someone, you might want to consider taking a walk up the tree-lined street known as “Romantic Road”. And for those of you looking for a little bit of fun, you’re in luck—Asahikawa is a city also known for its brewing industries. Of course, this all depends on if you can find time in your busy schedules to enjoy the sights. Good luck!
If you are one of the lucky members of the troupe to find some free time in your stay here, remember: cirque members are not to leave the campgrounds without at least one other person—including the leaders! Asahikawa is one of the major rail hubs of Hokkaido, with the Hakodate Main Line connecting the city to Hakodate, in the south of Hokkaido, and the Soya Main line connecting Asahikawa with Wakkanai in northern Hokkaido. If you aren’t up to taking the train, there are municipal buses that run throughout the city. However, Asahikawa is a humid city. This means its summer climate is warm. Unfortunately, we are in the off season so we’ll be subject to the city’s long and cold winters; Japan’s record coldest temperature was recorded here, at −41 °C (−41.8 °F). Temperature barely goes above freezing during March and the city experiences heavy snowfall, so bundle up if you’re going out.
The travel from Kawaguchi to the new campsite will be 24 hours by the two barges that we used to get us here. Don’t forget anything important because we won’t be back here for a long time, if at all!
- Para or self-para about the boat ride to Asahikawa!
Name: Kimberley Chen (Fangyu Chen) aka Kimley
Tent Assignment: #3 (Deep Red)
Home Island Cottage Assignment: #235
Skill: plant manipulation
Member Status: She joined during the time the circus moved from china to japan
Performance Details: Her performance is only 15 minutes and is seen in the main tent. Due to her young age and few experience and for the sake of her own as well as the one of the audience, the duration of her performance is limited in 15 minutes or less. Besides she only holds such a complicated show once a week. Her performance is usually a short story which will be shown by the flowers and plants that she manipulates. Most of her performances, she plays the music with certain musical instrument that she has chosen for the story, but sometimes she plays a role as well.
The rest of the time she is more of a wandering performer, reviving flowers, letting the leaves and flowers dance around the yound audience.
Personality: Kimley is a bright and bubbly person with innocent minds. Sometimes she wonders if it’s because of her ability but she is a optimistic person and her moto is “tomorrow, even if the world is destroyed, i’ll plant an apple tree today”. She can easily get sad but a bright smile will soon be plastered on her lips. The first thing you notice about her if you meet her will definitely be her bright and toothy smile. Daisy is her favorite flower. She doesn’t mind helping others, but asking for help herself is an absolute no go for her. She is scared of darkness and doesn’t like her big teeth. Giving advise is not one of her strength but she is definitely a good audience. Once you trust her enough to tell her your secret it will never be leaked out. the open-minded girl enjoys the variations of life and doesn’t mind when she sees something “strange” or “weird”.
Name: Park Bom (Iral)
Tent Assignment: #16 (Fuschia)
Home Island Cottage Assignment: #273
Skill: Smoke Manipulation
Member Status: completely new (Kawaguchi, Japan)
Performance Details: Bom’s show is a main show, with her own tent. Every visitor gets a candle when they enter and they have to sit down. It is a circle form with some empty space in the middle. She walks in with them, unnoticed and sits down. When everyone is in the tent the room is lit by all the candles, when they are told to blow them out. As the smoke spreads around in the tent, Bom disappears in it, shaping and coloring the smoke in different ways. She appears randomly in the middle of the stage, and keeps performing with an amused smile, playing with the audience.
Personality: After her parents death and the trauma with the fire, her personality changed a lot. She was a troublemaker. She is confident in herself. Speaks what she thinks, yet can be mysterious about certain things. Bom likes to play with people. Tease them, be witty. You could describe her as outgoing with a rather big mouth. However she also has a soft and quiet side to her. Which she keeps hidden however behind a mask of confidence.
As you say there is no smoke without fire and nothing could describe her better than that. Restless she wanders around, disappearing here and reappearing there. She will seem outgoing, friendly and witty. But there is more to her than just those simple traits. Bom shapes her personality the way she shapes her smoke, depending on who she is with, how she feels and what others might expect. Life left its marks on her as she tries to find her path.
This was actually completely by accident. Jaejoong and Yoochun are both long time members of the Circus, and most members know that I used to be Admin Hongki. I had decided on Junsu as my new Admin / Ringmaster muse a few hours before I took Jaejoong and Yoochun on as mods. We all found it rather amusing at the time and I still find myself laughing about it pretty often.
Don’t listen to Admin Junsu. It was part of my plan all along.
Working on training the Admin Team so bear with us. We have the Kimley and Bom apps in, I’m just using them to train Admin Yoochun so it will be a few more hours before they are up.
As for the Cirque Daily page, I’m working with Mod Jaejoong right now as well to teach her how to use it and then work towards getting it going.
So bear with us for being slow to respond to things!
Due to an expired reservation.
We use the images for when we publish the applications, so if you could find a coloured gif, approximately 200x500 (the large rectangular ones you find all around tumblr), that would be greatly appreciated. However, pictures are fine, too. So yes, please do include a picture with the application.
