Team Gaji and ‘What Does The Fox Say’ got me to love Taeyeon, Girls’ Generation, and K-Pop

Long time, no post. As this article is published, I bought my VIP standing ticket to watch Taeyeon’s “S…” Concert in Manila on December 14. It has broke ticket-selling records in the country as tickets were immediately sold out in 5 minutes.

So it has been a year since What Does The Fox Say ended. Sadly, its side-story sequel Paradise is still cancelled and there seem to be no word to when it will be back on the popular webtoon platform Lezhin Comics. Now you may ask why am I mentioning the popular webtoon in this post? Well believe it or not, What Does The Fox Say  and its creator Team Gaji (and Alggumba) got me to love the following: Girls Generation (SNSD), Taeyeon (the group’s leader), and K-Pop in general. 2016 was quite something for me because this was the same year that I got in these things all at once.

Alright people you would probably be having question marks on the top of your heads to why this one specific webtoon got me to love K-Pop. Here is the story:

Previously, I was a moderator of a Facebook group dedicated to this webtoon. One of the things that puzzled me was this thing that some yuri fans usually post pictures of the members of Girls’ Generation and compare them to the What Does The Fox Say characters Sumin, Sungji, and Seju. While some seemed to not really super accurate, one stood out and that was the group’s leader, Kim Taeyeon. I admit she does show some similarities with Sumin. Fans have been creating theories that Sumin was based from her and that the creators of the webtoon were SONES.

Years ago, Lezhin Comics also confirmed this fan theory too. (Note that the screenshot was posted before in Lezhin Comics’ Facebook page but was removed later on).



Other theories from fans claim that the whole What Does The Fox Say story is a fanfiction of TaengSic (Taeyeon x Jessica shipping). Before of the hype and success of the webtoon, Team Gaji created art and a small fan comic of Taeyeon and Jessica. Some however claim that WDTFS could be a TaeNy (Taeyeon x Tiffany) fanfiction but I’ll leave it to you guys.


Although all of this isn’t really like super confirmed, all this fan theories dragged me to a fandom that I’m not too familiar with which is K-Pop. My curiously lead me to listen to some songs of Girls’ Generation (as well as Taeyeon’s singles) and my love and appreciation for the Team Leader grew. If it weren’t for WDTFS, I wouldn’t have known this awesome group and wouldn’t go through heaven and hell just to see Taeyeon live. No regrets.  Also I want to give credit to my online friends (some of them I have already met personally) because they put into the right path of the fandom. I have witnessed a lot of drama and popcorn moments so I don’t really want to go there.

I can’t wait to see Queen Taeyeon next month. Aside from me, thousands of fans are really looking forward to see her in the flesh and serenade us with her powerful angelic voice. To those who are going, hope to see you there at the New Frontier Theater! I’ll be at VIP standing ;).

Team Gaji to Launch New GL Series in April!

Team Gaji announced on their Twitter account on Friday that they will be launching a new GL webtoon series in April. The title of the new series is roughly translated as “Pet Aesthetics” and will be released in another platform called Bomtoon.

The characters featured above are actually the same characters that made a cameo appearance in the early releases of What Does The Fox Say that dated back 2015.

Team Gaji announced previously on Twitter that What Does The Fox Say is cancelled due to a series of unfair treatment from its previous webtoon publisher, Lezhin Comics. The artist did mention previously that “a last chapter” might be released but so far no new chapter has been published in the Lezhin comics website. 
It feels nice to know that Team Gaji has decided to get into a new series. Maybe this will be another webtoon worth watching out for.

‘On A Leash’ Goes on Indefinite Hiatus, ‘What Does The Fox Say’ Series Officially Cancelled

The bad news in relation to Lezhin webcomic creators just keep piling up as days go by.

In a tweet posted by Aji last February 5, the artist officially announced that Lezhin GL webtoon series On A Leash will go on indefinite hiatus. As of now, there is still no definite date to when the series will be return.

Aji’s official statement posted in Twitter.

According to the Twitter post, the cause for this hiatus is due to Lezhin’s ongoing issue when regards to its creators. Aji expressed that since the closure of the site’s webnovel service, the issues have caused her a lot of stress. Aji expressed her great thanks to those who follow and read her series hoping that she will be able to continue On A Leash someday.

On other news, Alggumba (part of Team Gaji) announced in her Twitter account that the popular webcomic series What Does The Fox Say is officially cancelled due to a disagreement with Lezhin Comics. Similar case with Aji, the ongoing issues in Lezhin has also caused the artist and writer team to be stressed.

As much as they want to continue the  the series in another webcomic platform, it’s almost impossible to do so due to Lezhin’s contract. Hence they are left with no choice but to end it on Chapter 100.

Way back, Team Gaji expressed that they have a lot of stories planned for What Does The Fox Say – Paradise, sadly those won’t seem to happen anymore.

Two great works are left hanging with still a lot of questions left unanswered. Let’s hope that these great artists find greater opportunities and (hopefully) a better platform share their work to all GL fans around the world.

WDTFS Thoughts – Why Dawoon Wasn’t a Useless Character

So What Does The Fox Say is over. This was in my drafts for so long so it doesn’t hurt publishing this now– and I think it’s kind of timely as well.

This feature may contain some spoilers. So if you are not updated with the latest chapters of WDTFS, you’ve been warned.
Who is Dawoon?

Kim Dawoon is the grey-haired girl that made her debut in WDTFS  Chapter 60. She is introduced in the chapter when she returned to Korea and meets with Sungji. They were able to catch up on things together since she had to leave the country for study.


What We Know So Far

Out of all the characters that appeared in this webcomic series, it was only Dawoon that was short-lived and never recurred. Here are a few things that we know about her:


She is a highschool friend of Sungji 
Both Sungji and Dawoon knew each other since high school so technically Dawoon knows more about her than Sumin. The downside here is that the story implies that they no longer met anymore after high school graduation so the years of absence made them drift apart somehow.
Dawoon has feelings for Sungji for a long time

In a flashback, Dawoon have sort of confessed to Sungji but our favorite blonde never really gave her a proper answer. Even when Dawoon has returned from France and meets up with her again, she ended up with the same answer.

Dawoon had a girlfriend when she was in France named Camille. But even if they were together, the story implies that she keeps mentioning Sungji every now and then.

She wanted Sungji to be hers

Well, we can’t really blame her. She liked Sungji so it’s really normal for someone to pursue the person they liked whether there are risks involved in the beginning or end. It was obvious she wanted Sungji and she would do anything just to convince her to say yes.

A Threat To Team Blonde

When the series was still ongoing, one of the common comments I read is that Dawoon was only considered a filler character without any significance whatsoever. Regardless of that, it doesn’t hide the fact that she was a threat to the relationship of Team Blonde. In the previous chapters, Sumin and Sungji broke up. When Dawoon came into the picture, she was there to comfort Sungji and seems to portray as a better partner for her. She was willing to do anything to make her happy.

If you’re interested, you can read my reviews on these particular moments here and here.

She Wasn’t Useless

Okay, I admit that I admired Dawoon in appearance when I first saw her in the webtoon. She was a character that I really couldn’t take my eyes off and there is some mystery about her character as well. Although she got friendzoned in the end and never returned, she wasn’t really a useless character. Why? She was a wake-up call for Sumin that Sungji might be taken away from her.

Although I was a little disappointed with the lack of efforts made by Sumin to get her back, it made her realize what she have done and the possible threats that she would encounter especially when it comes to her relationship with Sungji.

She wasn’t useless because she did play an important part of Sungji’s life– and that’s being her highschool friend. She was one of the people that shaped the blonde girl’s childhood somehow. She was there for her back then when no one else did. That alone is something.

A Side-Story of Her Would Be Nice

While a lot of us are excited for the new “Seju side-story” series by Team Gaji (to be released in November), the possible thought of a Dawoon side-story is nice too. Like really– she was a short lived character leaving us a few questions in the end.

It would really be nice if Team Gaji would have some time in getting us to know about Dawoon because she is a mysterious, interesting, and probably the most friendzoned character ever in all the Lezhin GL webtoons combined. I am not  keeping my hopes up but having a few or a couple of chapters dedicated to her would be really interesting.

Although the chances of seeing her again is uncertain, I am quite happy that Dawoon made its way to the webtoon. It gave us a different view on things especially in the topics of love, being loved, and being friendzoned. Cheers to our noble grey knight.

What Does The Fox Say Double Review Treat! – Chapter 65 and Chapter 66

Finally after a couple of weeks of silence, I am back fueled with a lot of reviews to share. To make up with the lack of updates here in the blog, I decided to have a segment called The Triple Treat Three Series Review. Today I will be reviewing three yuri series in just one go starting with What Does The Fox Say.

What Does The Fox Say Chapter 65- A Cup of Americano and A Necktie

So in this chapter, we are first welcomed with a conversation with Sungji and Nami (God! How I missed this girl so much!). Our favorite blonde complimented her new hair only to find out it was actually hair extensions. So they had a heart to heart talk together which is mostly about Sumin and how Sungji is feeling. Nami admits that meeting up with her and Sumin would be really awkward now due to the break-up. Regardless of what is happening, Nami assures Sungji that if she needs someone to talk to, she can always call her. 
We are then taken to Sumin’s room as she is packing up for her business trip to Japan. As she went through her stuff, she noticed a dark blue aesthetic designed necktie in the closet realizing that it was actually from Sungji. Due to the sudden find, she decided to rest in her bed with the necktie covering her eyes.
Fast forward to her flight, Sumin remains glued to her cellphone hoping that a certain someone would check up on her and leave a message. Her workmate Miss Bong noticed this and asked if she was okay. This was the first time that Sumin will be far away from Sungji and wonders if she will be okay as she will be away from Korea. 
The plane finally took off and it seems that Sungji was able to see this as they went on a date together with Dawoon. In a coffee shop, Sungji ordered Americano coffee with 7 shots on impulse. This kind of startled Dawoon because Sungji was treating her. 
In the last few panels of the chapter, Sumin and Miss Bong arrived in Japan safely and in their hotel room. Sumin had absolutely no interest in sightseeing because she rather be somewhere else but back in Korea to hopefully fix things.

First off, this chapter is kind of bland for me– nothing critical and fancy about it. The only thing that seems interesting here is Sungji’s conversation with Nami. In that part alone, it’s obvious that Sungji is still unsure if finally letting go of Sumin is the best for her or going out with Dawoon would be the best for her to move on. I also liked how Nami is still there for them despite her busy schedule and everything between Team Blonde is still a huge mess. I really love her hair in this chapter and I really wish she would really let her hairstyle stay that way.
Let’s go to Sumin. Despite her busyness in packing up for her official business trip to Japan, she still had the time to marvel and appreciate the necktie that Sungji bought for her. Also, she kept holding and looking at her cellphone to check if she will at least get one message from Sungji before the flight takes off. 
Then to the Dawoon x Sungji date and coffee shop scene. Despite finally going out together, Dawoon still sensed that Sungji is still very distracted (well, you can help it because the break-up is still very fresh). The order of coffee was on impulse because if I remember correctly, this was the usual coffee Sumin orders.
Final Verdict

There’s nothing much to say about this chapter. Kind of good since the previous ones were emotionally triggering. This is a transition chapter to what’s about to unfold in the next one. 
What would that be you ask? We can only find out.
For now, have a Coffee Americano (it’s also one of my usual orders in coffee shops too). 😀
What Does The Fox Say Chapter 66 – “You Love Her, but Only On Your Own”

. << I was honestly this close to not making a review for this chapter… But I guess I don’t have a choice.
So Dawoon and Sungji went to the movies together. Though they were on a date, Sungji is still having that blank face of hers as she remembers her sweet moments with Sumin in the same venue. Dawoon went a bit too demanding when she asked Sungji to hold her hand.
After the movies, they went to a cafe. Sungji was sitting alone in the table while Dawoon had a sudden phone call. Once she got back, she immediately told Sungji the good news that she got hired by the restaurant she applied for. Somehow, the blonde girl seemed pre-occupied to notice and make an effort to congratulate her. Dawoon dropped a bomb and asked if Sungji was still thinking about her ex. Their conversation then shifted about the movie they’ve watched.
The next few panels were more Sungji and Dawoon scenes which are happier and less awkward unlike the previous ones. In the certain panels of this chapter (and also in the previous one), Sumin seems to look like she is present while the two are having fun (this will be explained a bit later during the Review section). 
Fast forward, Dawoon was with Sungji in her car. Our grey-haired knight enthusiastically told her that she will start work tomorrow. Finally focused, Sungji finally said her sincere congratulations. Dawoon smiled and she was happy to see Sungji smile ever since they started going out. Dawoon leaned closer to kiss Sungji. Aware that Sungji is still not ready to go intimate with her, she assured her to “give it a try first and think about it later”. As both of their lips touched, Sungji only imagines herself and Sumin kissing each other.
Meanwhile in Japan, Miss Bong and Sumin were busy going around the city. Our Team Leader stopped at a game machine which has a King Fox as the grand prize. With great determination, Sumin made a promise to herself that she will come back to that place in order to get it.
Now back to Sungji and Dawoon. Once again, Dawoon assures Sungji that she will “still wait a bit longer” until she is okay enough to start going out together. Sungji however, finally replied with a blunt sorry to indicate that this does not really work for her. Obviously hurt and realized that her high school friend was right, Dawoon told her that she might not be able to see each other again. Sungji told her that they will stay as friends as if nothing happened. Dawoon however admits that she can’t stay as friends because she sees Sungji as something more than that. The Grey knight leaves her and said her last goodbye with a broken heart.
Meanwhile in Hello Studio, Seju was answering a call which is related to the job applicants for the company. She then dropped the call and said to herself that “There’s nothing that’s going to change”. Upon leaving the place, she did not realize that someone was actually watching her earlier.

Oh wow, how do I even begin this review? Do I need to flip a table first?
This is technically a Dawoon x Sungji chapter with a VERY hurtful ending. Sungji imagining Sumin being there while she and Dawoon are dating is an obvious indication that she can’t move on yet and she obviously loves the Team Leader so much. 
In my previous reviews, I admired Dawoon since her first appearance and I appreciated to how she was so devoted and caring for Sungji. This chapter however seemed to show us a side of her that is in the borderline of being desperate. It’s understandable that she loves Sungji, but she should at least not force her to do things her way. Her kissing Sungji in her car was one part of the chapter that I didn’t like for some reason. Yes, I’m “Team Grey” but I just didn’t like to how Dawoon is making everything so fast that it’s just making Sungji uncomfortable.
I can’t really tell if Seju is trying to get away from all this or still hanging on. I hope it’s the former– but I seriously had enough of seeing her getting stuck in predicaments caused by both her family and love problems. I hope she can finally make her own independent decisions without anybody standing her way. 
I am starting to see a little of hope on Sumin. In this chapter, she makes an effort to get the King Fox as a gift for Sungji. Let’s hope that her efforts are really going to pay off in the end.
Then we go to Dawoon. I’m sorry but regardless if Dawoon was a bit rushing on her feelings towards Sungji, it’s just hurtful to see that someone you like never really liked or loved you the same way. If we put it in the context of Les Miserables, Sungji is like Marius, Sumin is Cosette, and Dawoon is Eponine. Though it never really showed, it was obvious that Dawoon was hurt in the end. 
We may not know when we’ll be able to see her again, but I hope the rejection doesn’t trigger anything worse. I’m hopeful that they will be friends again in due time.
To end this review, I’ll leave this here in honor of brave Grey Knight, Kim Dawoon. RIP Team Grey (2016-2016).
So there you have it, folks! Two chapters in one pod. Stay updated on the site and the Facebook page for I will be reviewing Chapter 67 next! 🙂
