Abnormal Summit – Impressions as of April 2015

Blogging is definitely a good way to procrastinate, and procrastination is a good way to get some long-overdue posts out of my head.  It’s either this or studying, so my choice is pretty clear.

Having followed the current cast of Abnormal Summit (as well as the show’s spin off of essentially the same cast, Where Is My Friend’s Home) for a while now, here are my thoughts of each of the G12 of the show thus far (from the oldest to the youngest):

This guy should just quit his day job and become a full-time TV personality. He is one of the two members out of the G12 cast that has a talent for variety shows (the other one being Sam from Ghana).

This guy should just quit his day job and become a full-time TV personality.  His on-screen persona reminds me of a lazy panda (especially with his forever non-erasable dark circles).  I bet he would probably pay off his debt much faster by working as a TV personality than…whatever he is currently doing as his day job (the IT industry?  – the last time I heard).  He is one of the two members out of the current G12 cast that has a talent for variety shows (the other one being Samuel from Ghana). *Fashion Terrorist.

Belyakov Ilya (surname, first name order).

Maybe it’s because Russia and China’s political philosophies overlap with each other somewhat, but it seems that Zhang Yuan and Ilya tend to agree with each other’s ideas, to the point that I can see Ilya’s surprised expression at times.  Otherwise, he gives me a bureaucrat vibe…Or, a secret agent…Hm…*Fashion Terrorist.

Alberto Mondi. A reliable, successful type of guy. It would seem as though it is only a matter of time before he becomes a CEO or some top management guy.

Zhang Yuan. At first, he seems the kind of guy who's very stubborn with his ideas. However, as time goes by, I realized he is quite easily persuaded by others...especially if someone uses aegyo (being cutesy) on him. Overall, he seems like a caring friend, but I can't help but feel he might be the wishy-washy kind when it comes to women (despite what he says about his love ideals).

Daniel Lindemann. The supposedly "not-so-funny-German" is surprisingly funny recently with his failed attempts at being funny or saying something odd with an innocent, straight face. His funniness is rather unintended or awkward, but that's what makes him slowly becoming one of the more entertaining members of the show. And, being handsome doesn't hurt either. =P

Julian Quintart. The opinionated but open-minded chatterbox. He seems the kind that can talk with this friends just almost about anything under the sun. lol he's actually quite close to my ideal type. XD

XD *sigh* can’t help but fangirl about him.

Sujan Shakya. Just based on Abnormal Summit, he seems like a typical office worker (of course, he's more good looking than the average office worker joes). However, I realized that he is surprisingly very innocent, naive, and boyish based on his reactions on Where's My Friend's House.

Tyler Rasch. Serious and studious...just like an honour student. >.>

Serious and studious…just like an honour roll student. One of these days, people will have to start calling him Professor.  ACK! Great, he just reminds me of my LSAT. >.>

Robin Deiana. In one of the episodes, it seems that he is trying to improve his Korean so that he can get more acting gigs...his acting skills was rather...sub-par the last time I saw it. If he doesn't improve, I think it's safer if he just do some modelling instead.

In one of the episodes, it seems that he is trying to improve his Korean so that he can get more acting gigs in the future…his acting skills was rather…sub-par the last time I saw it.  If he doesn’t improve, I think it’s safer if he just settles some modelling instead.  Otherwise, his lack of Korean skills tends to make him depend on Julian quite a bit.  Hope his Korean will improve soon.

Samuel Okyere. A happy-go-lucky kind of person, with a heart made of gold too. ^^ Of course, as a comedian, here's never a dull moment with him.

Still dealing with camera-shyness. Hm...he better gets over this camera-shyness (or maybe it's public speaking in general) soon, but I feel it is hindering his arguments. Poor kid.

Terada Takuya. At first, he was just an unpopular idol (how ironic, since idol should usually be popular by definition). Now, he's just a non-mainstream idol. I still cringe every time I remember his dance. His hand is beautiful though, as he shows it off time and time again on the show.

A special shout-out of thanks to South Subs for picking up this translation project!
