ㅤㅤㅤ˗ˏˋ MEET SHIN JOO!
FULL NAME shin joo 신주 OTHER NAMES shinjoo because her name is so short, it's almost as if it is her first name. chanyeol began calling her this since they were in elementary school together, and soon it became a thing to just call her by her whole name together. poo only sehun calls her this. chanyeol taught sehun how to be an tbh. and sehun force believed himself that he gave birth to joo. therefore, he is her . juju, jooshin, chewy, etc and other generic nicknames. what else could you possibly make of her name, it's so short. joopan it was according to her love for sapporo, but jisoo thought it was funny and said it one time. nobody actually calls her this. joocherry, jooberry, joomelon, etc anybody who knows joo knows how much she loves fruits. thus any fruit + joo is born as a new nickname for her. confushin joo always quotes proverbs that are appropriate to the situation at hand. it's also a play on her name; as most times, she stays silent during meet ups unless it's to roast someone out of nowhere or get like ghandi. aka confusion
BIRTHDATE 111598 BIRTHPLACE seodaemun, seoul, s. korea HOMETOWN seattle, washington, usa ETHNICITYkorean as fucc
LANGUAGES english native. what other language could i have possibly learned in the states- korean fluent. homespoken, the mother tongue: the official language of her ethnic background. if i had forgotten the language of the motherland, my parents would beat my before i could even think about that possibility. japanese advanced. when you're an animehead and street fashion enthusiast like me, you'll work your off to learn this language.
ㅤㅤㅤ˗ˏˋ HEY, PRETTY FACE.
FACECLAIM (BACKUP) kim saeeun (bae joohyun) STATURE167 cm & 52.5 kg APPEARANCEjoo wasn't blessed with the kindest look on the face. it's no fun to have a resting face 24 hours of the day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks of the year. rbf syndrome occurs when she's tired or just spacing out. because she looks so angry at the world, it becomes hard to approach her. she gets a bit envious of the bubbliest looking member. in fact, she would much rather be cursed with resting derp face. joo has a burn scar from her childhood when she was helping her mom fry chicken. she's got a birthmark in the shape of a heart on the back of her left knee. she also has two moles on her right arm and enjoys pinching the fat on her arm to create the image of an elephant.
FASHIONjoo's style is heavily influenced by minimalistic and trendy but fashion forward southern california. and boy - does she love her turtlenecks.
ㅤㅤ˗ˏˋ THE STORY OF JOO'S LIFE.
yes passionate, forgiving, reliable
haughty, ed mmh passive agressive
quick-tempered, sarcastic, brusque nah
"yeah, i am your buddyolpalchumfriend. i'm not gonna be nice about it."#reliable #brusque #loyal
joo's entire philosophy is based on the sense of trust and the ability to take criticism. so in the case of close friends and family, sugarcoating everything really won't help anyone in the long run. her words are actually helpful these days because a lot of people need the cold, hard truth. she is really straightforward with her opinions, if she is asked. if you want to know her the dress or that tie looks on you (and you're the one who is second guessing yourself), joo isn't and will not be afraid to tell you to your face. when you really want her opinion, do so with precautions. this is something that makes her a good and loyal friend. she wouldn't dare lie to you. it's not that she's a bad liar (which she is). joo is very trusting. she has a real nice judge of character. if she can tell that you're a good person, she'll definitely let you know that you have become worthy of her loyalty. "i try not to be as physically violent as i may sound." #sarcastic #passiveaggressive #quicktempered
because of joo's natural tone of voice, you can't really tell when she's being serious or if she's being sarcastic. she has always sounded so ironic. she was raised to be well-mannered, so the act of raising her voice at someone happening would be in the midst of a really angry joo. to express her frustrations, she speaks in a literal overdramatic tone of sarcasm. if you cannot sense it, she will just stop talking to you altogether for the rest of the day or whatnot. there are quite a few things that really know how to make joo tick: having her say or do something more than three times (3x is pushing it), people who talk way to softly, fake feminists, and so much more.
BACKGROUND she got moneyyyy joo was born into a family that was pretty well-off, where she could have had anything she wanted just by the snap of daddy's fingers. her father was a plastic surgeon; in fact, he was one of the best. and her mother was the ceo of her own startup business for matchmaking. (something similar to east meet east) instead, she worked hard to prove her own potential to herself. she liked challenging herself. growing up she thought that the things that were easily given to her were sort of worthless, unless it had more sentimental value. rewards she lived in the states almost all her life. during her high school career, she especially worked toward getting accepted to a university in korea in their arts program. she wanted to go to korea to get in better touch with her ethnic culture. she hasn't been since she was eight years old.

ㅤㅤ˗ˏˋ MEMBERS OF TEAM JOO
"if your future boyfriend doesn't shower you with love and an equal amount of insults, i will beat his and chase him out of your life."these two have been friends since before they were even born. their parents have been friends since they themselves were in high school. the strong bond between yeol and joo were inspired by the friendship of their parents. these kids attended the same daycare, pre-school, and elementary school. joo and her family had to move to the states while joo was in 3rd grade and yeol was in 4th grade. they kept in touch via skype and soon facetime almost daily. yeol is legit the older brother she never had. like night and day, he keeps her on her toes with really bad dad jokes and terribly cheesy pickup lines. and on the other hand, joo feels it's her job to humble yeol with a daily insult or trying not to boost his sense of humor. and she loves his sense of humor. "i'm just setting your standards, shinjoo. make sure they're high. and i'm pretty up there."
"as much as i hate you, i can't kick you out of my life. that's why i say i gave birth to you because i can tolerate your just-like-me ." joo met sehun during their high school days through chanyeol. chanyeol obviously had to grow closer to other people since his best friend was out of the country. sehun realized how quickly he became comfortable with joo, as their personalities are truly identical. he lowkey acts like a father to her. examples being scaring off guys who are interested, seeing that she is being active and that she is never upset. meanwhile, joo is being like the perfect daughter. examples being always giving sehun a hard time, humbling him by calling him ugly and that his breath stinks, and ultimately being there for him whenever he's not feeling himself. "can't have my little baby child female thing becoming attractive." "although i know you'll probably get married and have kids before me, i'm still probably just gonna hand over the bouquet to you when i get married." you wouldn't be able to tell that there are 6 years between these two. they are so in sync that one would probably think they were twins (fraternal, of course.) kind of like the sister-sister relationship that teddy and charlie (from disney's good luck charlie) but instead hani gave valuable advice in real life. as a creator on a relatable blog, hani takes into her own account to experience many new things and she encourages joo to do the same. the girls skype and facetime weekly as both of their schedules aren't very synced. but they try to keep up with each other as much as possible since they're in two very different places. and like a big sister should, hani preaches that all boys are the devil and to stay away from drugs, in the most annoying way possible. while confusing joo, by always asking, are you dating yet? when are you getting into a serious relationship?
if there is any pair that could scare you, it'd be these two. jisoo is on crack and joo doesn't really think before she speaks. even though they are still building their friendship, sehun is afraid of the bond to come. as for joo, she is very impressed by jisoo's initiative and creativity.
"whoja goo gir? dash righ you da goo girr." ddalgi was named so by joo as it is her favorite fruit and soon became ddalgi's favorite treat. joo rescued ddalgi from a dog fight ring that she was going to be thrown into the training straight out the womb. this pupper disguised as a doggo comforts joo through everything alongside chanyeol and sehun. ddalgi likes getting baths and taking walks. and she loves sticking her nose in people's butts, especially if they're strangers or she hasn't seen them in a while.
ㅤㅤㅤ˗ˏˋ "IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?"
"OH MY GOSH. HI.""I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY I'M HERE, TO BE HONEST.""JESUS, SEHUN. WE WENT OVER THIS. I TOLD YOU I NEEDED COMPANY 'CAUSE I WAS TOO NERVOUS TO CONDUCT THIS INTERVIEW BY MYSE—ANYWAYS, HEY! I'M JISOO, AND THIS IS MY COWORKER SEHUN.""HEY." "AND YOU MUST BE...?"a look of confusion failed to be hidden on joo's face. "oh, jesus. i'm really gonna sue you, sehun." "HI, I'M SHIN JOO." she uncrossed her arms to examine her nails before looking back up at the two."I - UH - TURN 20 THIS YEAR IN NOVEMBER AND I WORK RIGHT DOWN THE WAY THERE."she threw her thumb toward the back of the room to point behind her, as if indicating the store were behind them but meaning the store is probably directed that way.
"NICE TO MEET YOU! FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY: ARE YOU AFRAID OF DOGS?""WHAT KIND OF INTERVIEW QUESTION IS THAT?""MY GOD, SEHUN, 'CAUSE THIS WILL BE OUR REGULAR MEETING SPOT. QUIT ASKING QUESTIONS. YOU'RE NOT THE INTERVIEWER HERE, I AM.""OH, WELL - I'M SURE YOU KNOW MY LITTLE STRAWBERRY. I DROP HER OFF AT THE DAYCARE ALL THE TIME. CHANYEOL'S BABYSITTING HER FOR ME TODAY."joo beamed and pulled out her phone to present a picture of her and her samoyed."I THINK IT'S PRETTY SAFE TO SAY I LOVE THEM."she looked at her phone one more time before sliding her phone in her back pocket.
"NOW, WHERE DO YOU WORK IN BUSY HONGDAE? AND TELL US A BIT ABOUT WHAT IT'S LIKE.""I WORK AT SCULP. RIGHT ON THAT STREET CORNER LOOKING OUT AT THE GIANT FOREVER 21 BETWEEN THE BOMB GOOBNE CHICKEN AND THAT LITTLE ACCESSORY SHOP... CRAP- I FORGOT THE NAME OF IT.""MINT EYE.""AW, HUN - DID YOU MEMORIZE MY SURROUNDINGS?""NO.""YOU WATCHIN OUT FOR ME, I-""SHUT UP. FINISH ANSWERING THE QUESTION."joo twitched the corner of her top lip and continued."SO I WORK AS A PERSONAL STYLIST THERE. I DON'T MEAN TO SOUND LIKE I'M BRAGGING, BUT MY MANAGER SLASH THE OWNER TOOK NOTICE HOW MANY NEW CUSTOMERS STARTED SHOPPING THERE SINCE I STARTED WORKING, SO HE RAISED MY PAY. I'M NOT PARTICULARLY CLOSE WITH ALL OF MY COWORKERS EXCEPT WONHO, THE GUY WHO BILLS MY CUSTOMERS. WE'VE GOTTEN PRETTY CLOSE BECAUSE WE WORK CLOSER TOGETHER. IT'S A FEEL-GOOD PLACE TO WORK BECAUSE MY CUSTOMERS ARE GUYS WHO ARE TRYING TO FIND THEIR STYLE. she ran her fingers through her hair and flipped her hair behind her. "I WAS ACTUALLY RECRUITED TO WORK THERE BECAUSE WONHO WAS PUTTING UP HELP WANTED SIGNS AND I WAS SITTING OUTSIDE A CAFE LOOKING THROUGH THE JOB SECTION OF THE NEWSPAPER. EASIEST HIRING PROCESS I'VE EVER GONE THROUGH, PROBABLY WILL NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN."
"COOL! SO, HOW DID YOU COME TO FIND OUT ABOUT HONGDAE SQUAD?""HOW COULD THEY NOT KNOW ABOUT IT AFTER YOU POSTED THAT FLYER OF YOURS ON THE COMMUNITY BULLETIN BOARD FOR LIKE A MONTH NOW.""...TRUE."joo squinted her eyes at sehun and punched the inside of her cheek with her tongue before speaking."OH SPARE ME THE BS, HUN. YOU PRACTICALLY DRAGGED ME HERE ON MY HOMEWORK DAY. CARE TO EXPLAIN?"sehun rolled his eyes and scoffed."CHANYEOL THOUGHT YOU COULD USE SOME MORE FRIENDS, POO."joo's jaw dropped and she almost lunged forward at him. instead, she bucked quickly causing sehun to flinch and compose himself."I THINK YOU JUST WANTED ME ALL TO YOURSELF."
"ANY PARTICULAR REASON BEHIND YOU WANTING TO JOIN THE SQUAD?""FIRST- APPARENTLY, I NEED TO ADD TO MY CIRCLE OF FRIENDS. AND SECOND - WELL, I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH OF A CHOICE FOR MYSELF TO COME TO THIS INTERVIEW; NOW DID I? BUT IF I WAS INFORMED IN ADVANCE, I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO BECOME PART OF A BIGGER GROUP OF PEOPLE. AS MUCH AS I HATE TO ADMIT, I AM A LITTLE SOCIALLY AWKWARD." "MORE LIKE SOCIALLY RETARDED." "OH YOU'RE ONE TO TALK, SEHUN."
"DING DING DING!""OH GOD.""THE SPEED ROUND HAS JUST BEGUN! SO, I'LL JUST BE ASKING YOU A SERIES OF QUICK QUESTIONS THAT I JUST WANTED TO PUT IN THE INTERVIEW SO I SEEM LIKE A COOL AND FUN PERSON 'CAUSE I REALLY AM, I PROMISE.""UH- OH, OHKEH."
"EARLY BIRD OR NIGHT OWL?""I'M A HARDCORE NIGHTINGALE."
"FAVORITE SUPERHERO?""WADE WILSON AKA DEADPOOL, THE DIRTY SPIDERMAN."
"THE MOUNTAINS OR THE SEA?""THE SEA."sehun leaned closer to jisoo."SHE THINKS SHE'S REALLY A MERMAID..."
"BURGERS, FRIED CHICKEN, OR PIZZA?""PSH, I CAN ANSWER, EASY."she dismissed the thought with the wave of her hands."FRIED CHICKEN." she raised her hand, wagging her finger. "BUT KOREAN FRIED CHICKEN THOUGH. BECAUSE SEASONING - DUH?"
"CAMPING. HOT OR NOT? AND ARE YOU GOOD AT IT?""TOTALLY NOT?!"she sat upright."I AT SURVIVING..." she sank into her seat.
"LAST ONE. STAYING IN OR GOING OUT?""DEFINITELY STAYING IN. NOTHING BEATS CURLING UP ON THE COUCH READY FOR A NETFLIX ADVENTURE."
"ALRIGHTY! UNFORTUNATELY, THE INTERVIEW HAS COME TO AN END—""FINALLY.""QUIT BEING A , SEHUN. ...AHEM. IT WAS GREAT MEETING YOU AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU AROUND!" "I CANNOT BELIEVE I WASTED MY LUNCH BREAK FOR THI—""BYE! THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!""GOOD BYE, JISOO. IT WAS NICE MEETING YOU." she smiled softly and shook jisoo's hand. she then walked over to sehun with a violent look in her eyes. and with her teeth clenched, she tugged on sehun's ear. "YOU WASTED YOUR LUNCH BREAK? , I WASN'T THE ONE WHO DECIDED-" and her lecture began while she walked toward the exit, still pinching his ear. eavesdropping for jisoo was cut off when the door closed after she swung it open enough to pull sehun outside.
ㅤㅤ˗ˏˋ IS THAT LOVE IN THE AIR?
no, it's actually all of joo's brainfarts. kinda smells, doesn't it? the only thing joo loves more than anything is shopping and japan.
