This video is for the kind dear that had issue with “LOOF” being on me and my friend’s Tshirts and decided to voice it on the Chicago FB concert page.
Please don’t come for me, unless I send for you. My email is in the info box if you would like to discuss further.
Oh look! A list of resources from thisisnotkorea and angryasiangirlsunited's blogs and the internet on why what you did is wrong. But please tell us more about how your degree in East Asian studies with a concentration in Korean language or the fact that you lived in Korea for almosta year (wow!) excuses you from perpetuating linguistic imperialism and just flat out being rude. Please tell us more about how your harmless joke/encouragement is not steeped in the degradation of Asians and all other people whose first language is not English. You don’t have to look at these links (i doubt you will anyway) but don’t sit behind a camera and try to play this off as “Omg kpop fans are so butthurt! This is just how we show love!” when there are living breathing people telling you that this is wrong and hurts them.
Sam DOES follow, just not right away. Sam lives a long, prosperous, ridiculously happy life in Hobbiton with Rosie, with whom he has many children. He was mayor of Hobbiton SEVEN times until he retired at age 96, oversaw the establishment of the Shire as its own independent land, and was personally given the Star of the Dunedain by King Elessar as a gesture of friendship and love. But when Rosie passed away on Mid-Year’s day, Sam rode out from Bag End on September 22nd for the last time and finally followed Frodo to Valinor as the third and last Ringbearer to do so at the grand old age of 104.
He did exactly as Frodo asked him to. He was whole, and happy, and he enjoyed and did more than he could have ever imagined when he was a humble gardener listening in for tales of the Elves. And when he had lived out his life in peace and absolute happiness he earned his reward and followed Frodo home.
