Taeji is a one of a kind type of person, full of positivity, open-mindedness, curiosity, optimism, and individuality. Always full of laughter, he can be found constantly smiling and cracking jokes, even when he's down or in a bad place. Honing a great sense of humor, even when he fails he finds a way to laugh at himself and move on. He always has something to say and kind of can't keep his mouth shut. He's not afraid to let people know his opinions and speaks his mind whenever he feels like it. It makes him quite an enemy of the traditional classroom where you're expected to sit down and shut up and let the teachers "teach". In fact, he hates being confined. Having been raised constantly exploring and meeting new people, he likes being out of his comfort zone. In fact, his comfort zone is constantly being in new environments. He's very versatile when it comes to people and can adapt to virtually any personality.
Taeji is a person that loves to love, and more importantly, loves to love people. He loves people to death. You might have had a small conversation with him five minutes ago while he was grocery shopping but next thing you know, he's willing to defend you from anything. He's very open-minded and supporting and isn't one to shut other people down. It's ironic that someone who likes to talk so much also happens to be a great listener. He's willing to sit down with anyone and just listen to their problems even if he doesn't get to talk. He's that type of person who's willing to be there for anyone. Naturally kindhearted and sweet, he always has good intentions at heart and is typically a very selfless person. He's also very open about himself. He doesn't like keeping things from people unless specifically requested too and it finds it incredibly difficult to lie.
Taeji's kind of a hot mess. Emphasis on both hot and mess but mostly hot (or so he says). While his life could be a lot more organized, he's pretty happy with himself and where he is and while he does have goals for himself, he doesn't feel like he has to prove anything to anyone. He loves himself a lot, not in a cocky way, but in a genuine, confident, "I can laugh at myself" way. While he is incredibly hypersensitive and his emotions can be easily impended on, he's developed a hard shell and tries his best not to let anyone else get to him. His hypersensitivity also makes him incredibly empathetic to other people, following his love of loving. He can sense other people's emotions surprisingly well, and while he isn't always on point, he's often very close. Other people's emotions also effect him a lot as well. Like his mood can be impended on if a close friend of his is in a bad mood.
While loving and supportive and honestly will fight for you, Taeji lives for tea. Hot tea, cold tea, sweet tea, peach tea. As a dramatic person himself, he has a habit of following drama and really, isn't afraid to make his comments about the matter public. Yeah, he likes gossip a little too much, but he's mostly a good person. Promise. He's not really a problematic person but he get's pretty bitchy when he wants to. Unable to keep his mouth shut and always wanting to share his opinion, he's pretty blunt about when he wants to be left alone or wants certain people to fuck off. He doesn't have a resting bitch face but his personality sure does. Have we talked about how he's kind of super lazy? Because if not, allow me to elaborate. Taeji isn't just lazy, he's "I'd rather lie in bed and let my phone drive me crazy than put it on silent" lazy. He goes through phases of productivity. Some days he's super productive and gets things done in a heartbeat, and sometimes he struggles to just roll out of bed.
Additionally, Taeji doesn't sleep. If you went to urbandictionary.com and searched up, "Night Owl", his name would be right there. He truly is the definition of a night owl and is pretty nocturnal. He's a lot more energetic during the night and later hours of the day than the morning and early afternoon. He often can't function in the morning without a cup of coffee or three. But when he is awake, he's awake. He's very hyper and animated and it's been commented he uses his hands a lot when he speaks, which is true. If hadn't become a musician, he probably would've become a comedian or some other of the story. Blunt and cheeky, he'll jokingly drag someone for the culture. While incredibly sweet in real life, he does love to poke fun at other people, especially good friends. Close to Taeji? You will never hear the end of his jabs. Ever. But when you really are on his bad side (which is like virtually impossible, so if you are, you must've done something real fucked up), he will drag you to filth.
Speaking of dragging, Taeji is a warrior of the people. He's very vocal of his support of other people and doesn't tolerate slander towards anyone. Very active on Witchagram and other social media, it's common for him to call out his disrespectful fans and politely tell them to stop bothering other people. As someone who is based on self love and loving others, he doesn't want the people who are following him or supporting him to be people who spread hate. Commonly addressing human rights in his songs, whether people like it or not, he's very politically active and has participated in several marches, pride marches, and the like. He's always been willing to explore different possibilities and personally doesn't consider anyone an enemy, just someone on a different path than him. This makes him willing to listen to and empathize with anyone.
Taeji is a hardcore extrovert to the highest levels of extrovert-ism. Like sometimes he'll high key invite someone to go the store with him just because he wants someone to talk to while he shops. It's kind of ridiculous how much he likes being around people. It's also extremely ironic because he's a cat person and dogs are more commonly known to be more people animals. Funny enough, he doesn't even really likes dogs. He finds them too messy and too much high maintenance, especially for his busy life and hectic personality. He's already high maintenance, why would he adopt another him? Similar to his desire to know more people, he likes knowing a lot of things in general. He kind of just... likes to learn. Like while he's a nuisance in the classroom, you can tell he's engaged and learning because of how much he talks. If Taeji doesn't talk in your class, it's a problem. It means you're boring. Don't be boring. While he crosses the line into Hufflepuff qualities a lot, what truly makes him Ravenclaw is his desire to learn and explore. He admits, he can be a bit grade-obsessed sometimes but meeting new people, being in new environments, learning new languages, receiving new information, it all excites him.
