In the lead-up to his comeback, Damon had a lot of work to do. Nothing he wasn't used to at this point in his career - he'd done it all back when he was still at Sealight, naturally - so it was basically a routine. The album concept was being put together, the songs written(some of them by him, BOSS was giving him somewhat of a long leash in that regard) and now there was the issue of visual media.
<p>
Meaning he had to put up with photoshoots, one of his least favorite parts of being an idol. Some of them were okay, like when they were tied up with the actual promotion of his work, but this was meant to be more of a teaser for the album teasers. Less fun. But it wasn't like he had a choice, this company could tell him to jump and he'd be best served to ask 'how high' without causing trouble.
<p>
There were no options left for him if he got dropped from this label as well. He highly doubted CM would take someone like him after being at both competing labels. The stylists were waiting for him when he arrived, and at the very least the wardrobe choices he caught sight of when he was changing the first time didn't seem too terrible. He'd worn worse in his career.
<p>
Waving away the overly picky woman who was trying to fuss too much with his hairstyle, he stepped out into the main room, eyes automatically moving around to try and spot the photographer. He was curious if it was someone he'd worked with before, or if he was going to have to get used to someone new bossing him around from behind a camera.
<p>
With his luck lately...

The only good thing about this damn trip so far had been the food. This little village off from the main Olympic complex had been recommended by some other idol from BOSS - who, Damon couldn't remember right now, he was still learning names and faces okay? - and the trouble it took to get there had him wondering whether it was worth it at all. But all his doubts were evaporated the moment he stepped inside the steamed bun shop.
<p>
If they tasted near as good as the smells suggested, he was probably going to go into a food coma. Which was completely fine by him, it might blow out more time in the day he didn't know what to do with. It was a small miracle that he got through the line and got through his food without snapping at people taller than him - it was crowded and they tended not to notice someone below their eye level very well, nothing new with fucking giants.
<p>
Taking his bag with more grace than he felt, Damon stepped away from the people crowding him and reached inside, picking out one of the buns blindly without a care what was inside at the moment. Biting into it ferociously, he turned and used his shoulder to open the door, teeth clamping into the food hanging out of his mouth to keep it in place.
<p>
Or at least it worked until someone trying to move into the shop(or maybe walking past, he couldn't be sure) bumped into him. Opening his mouth reflexively, Damon wasn't quick enough to catch the bun as it fell, and it hit the snowy ground with a pathetic sounding plop. Breathing deeply through his nose and swallowing what had been left in his mouth, he looked up at the person, eyebrows lifting in a slightly challenging way.
<p>
At least he kept himself from yelling and making an immediate scene, even though he was tempted. Shutting the door of the shop behind him, he hefted his bag in the crook of his arm, holding it closer to his body as if protecting the rest of its contents. The only thing keeping him from darting off with the rest of his food was waiting for the other person's reaction, whatever it would be.

I can't believe I'm having to make this post, but here we are. Everyone should know about this by now, but if you don't, I'm going to direct you to this article that fully explains the situation.
<p>
This is the first time I've ever heard of an idol being kicked from their company for property damage. I know Sealight is saying it was all from that one incident described in the article(read it if you haven't, tldr version is that he apparently damaged studio equipment while working on a project for Sealight), but I'm wondering if that's actually all on him.
<p>
We all know Sealight, of the big three companies, are the hardasses. They expect a certain level of performance from their artists, and if you don't meet it, you're gonna be dropped - anyone remember that Japanese idol a few years back? That's what this incident brought to mind. It sounds like Damon had a meltdown over something else in Sealight, or everything was just piling up on him for so long that he finally lost it.
<p>
All things said, I feel bad for him. He was having such a good career streak, and I was really looking forward to what he was going to come out with in the future. But now that's all up in the air because of one mis-step. You'd think Sealight might want to give some of their artists a little leeway considering how controversy-lacking some of them are, compared to other artists at other companies I'm not even going to name(because we all know who they are >>)
<p>
I know I'm probably going to get a lot of hate for this post, and so be it. So many of you want to turn on him now that he's out of his contract, but I wonder if that'll stay the same if he gets into another company...like say, BOSS? I think they'd be willing to sign someone with his talents especially with their restructuring efforts going on...guess we'll see in a few months' time.

(Sidenote: I tried to find a better shot of Damon and Vee, but the only one where they were both properly in the frame from that fanmeet, Damon's head looked like it was disembodied LOL, I figured having Vee's smile in there was better than nothing OTL)

This is a web-exclusive interview with Damon Kwon, one of Sealight's best soloists who was able to join our interviewer over webcam and give us his insight in his own words.
<p>
Q: So can you start us off with a little bit of information that your fans might not know about you?
<p>
A: "I'm American, though I'm sure some of you can tell that when I talk - I've been told my accent when speaking English is pretty obvious. My adopted parents moved a lot when I was growing up, so I've seen a lot of the southeast portion of America and a lot of the coastal areas. Beaches are the best thing in the world to me because of that, I'd spend a lot of my time there when there wasn't anything else to do."
<p>
Q: Do you have any other family?
<p>
A: "Nope. Never met my birth parents, and my adopted parents could only handle me. As far as I know, the people who raised me are still in the states, we stopped talking when they didn't see eye to eye with me about my decision to get into Kpop."
<p>
Q: What would you have done for a living if you hadn't signed with your company?
<p>
A: "My adopted father wanted me to go to college and 'make something' of myself, and I tried to go for a semester, but I got bored really fast. I don't really know what I would be doing now if not music, it's the only thing that caught my interest enough to make me dedicated about something."
<p>
Q: How did you get scouted?
<p>
A: "I was lucky to be spotted when I was out with a friend - the man who approached us seemed to be more interested in her than me at first, but he told us about tryouts that were being held in our area in a couple days. She was skeptical, but I was interested. It was a little harder to do in the early days of Youtube, but I stumbled across Kpop music when I was trying to look more into where I'd come from - I knew my parents were Korean but nothing else about them.
<p>
That opened me up to the idea, and I tried out but didn't make it through the first time. I took vocal lessons after that, and made it through after a couple more rounds of tryouts. That was pretty much what made me cut ties with my adopted parents. They weren't happy but...I was legally of age in America and there wasn't anything they could do to stop me."
<p>
Q: Do you enjoy being a soloist, or do you think you would have been better suited to perform with a group?
<p>
A: "I get along fine with my labelmates, but there aren't any of the groups I would have wanted to work with. I do better when I'm carrying all my own weight out on stage, throwing myself into a performance is what keeps me grounded a lot of the time and I just don't want to have to rely on someone else. Nothing against those who do better in groups, it's just not for me."
<p>
Q: What is it about music, you think, that makes it such a good career choice for you?
<p>
A: "I don't know, really, other than it lets me lose myself for a while. My head can be a kind of...wild place when my thoughts get going. Music helps me sort out my thoughts, and it's just important to me in a way I can't really put into words. I guess it soothes me.
<p>
It's a much better career path for me than anything my parents wanted me to do, because I probably wouldn't have lasted. So I guess I'm just a born artist, as lame as that might sound."
<P>
Q: Do you ever think about your parents being proud of you in what you're doing?
<p>
A: "....Ugh. Part of me would like to think that, but after the way things ended, I've probably burned my bridge with them. I can't torture myself thinking about whether they're proud of what I'm doing. I have to do what's best for me and the people here who matter to me. Anything else is just stupid."
<p>
Q: We're running out of time here, is there anything else you'd like to say?
<p>
A: "Thanks for this opportunity to clear up some of the misconceptions about me. Uh, beyond that...that's about all I have to say about myself. Oh, and thank you to the fans who are supporting me. I wouldn't be where I am without any of you. I hope to keep making music for a long time for all of you to appreciate."

<p>
name: Damon is derived from a Greek name that means 'to tame', which is a reference to how Lilo 'tamed' Stitch - but also, it looks like demon, which is an even more obvious reference to play on both sides of Stitch's nature. Kwon means 'power', which was the best way I knew to give a nod to his status as the most dangerous of Jumba's experiments. Plus, the names sound good together, which is important. Akshin, his stage name, is Korean for 'evil spirit', which is another tie-in to Stitch's default destructive state.
<p>
background: Rather than being an experiment, Damon is a child who was given up for adoption by his parents. He was adopted by a rather eccentric 'inventor', and raised by him and his easily-confused-for-a-woman partner, which of course is a callback to Jumba and Pleakley. He didn't live in Hawaii, but was raised in various coastal locations throughout the US - mostly in the southeast and gulf coasts.
<p>
the basics: He's 5'2" because Stitch was pretty damn small in his canon. Interests and some of his likes and dislikes are taken directly from canon. Kpop idol was pretty simple to translate considering his fixation on Elvis - down to dressing up like him and playing the guitar. He's literally a garbage pit when it comes to food, which is also pretty much canon.
<p>
troublemaker: Experiment 626 is not himself if he's not stirring up shit and destroying things somewhere, hence the incident that got him kicked out of Sealight. He's always had a short fuse, and has been known for getting into fights with people throughout the years, but he was always good about toeing the line. Until you take his music away. So when his headphones broke in the middle of a particularly important remixing session in the studio, he lost his shit and wrecked quite a bit of the equipment. But that wasn't what got him kicked out of Sealight. He told the CEO to his face exactly where he could go and what he could do while doing it - a mirror of Stitch's outburst when he was asked to speak in front of the Galactic Council, which of course was a mistake because of what he said to them.

<h1>Intro</h1>
Damon Kwon, former solo artist for Sealight, is now at BOSS and preparing for a comeback like no other. He may look small and cute, but he has a devious side that some don't know about until it's too late. He's also not one you want to turn your back on for too long...his impulse control isn't very strong and he has a tendency to heckle people when he's bored - which is often unless he's kept entertained or otherwise occupied.

<h1>Friends</h1>
HAHAHAHAH. We're working on this. Damon doesn't trust easily in light of his most recent life betrayal at Sealight, so he's going to be looking at the people around him in BOSS suspiciously until they prove they aren't out to get him or sabotage the career he's trying to rebuild. Boy needs friends admittedly to help him chill out some, which is good for anyone around him. Not that anyone heard this from me, but he's actually a softy underneath all the troublemaking and really wants to have people mean something to him, but good luck making him admit that.

<h1>Lovers</h1>
Male, female, nonbinary - arbitrary to Damon. If he sees someone he finds attractive, he's going to voice it. Steady dating isn't something he's ever really done, but hooking up with people? Oh yeah. It'd take something special to dedicate him to one person, tbh.

<h1>Enemies</h1>
A lot of people on principle are not gonna like him. He's unpredictable and not really someone you can trust that easily, plus he has an explosive temper and a tendency to want to push people's buttons to entertain himself.

<h1>Others</h1>
I LIKE FLUFFY.
