FINALLY I can post my remix entry here!

Title: mirror, window, mirror
Remix of: the chain by [ profile] galmaegi
Fandom: Infinite
Rating: PG-13
Pairing(s)/Focus: Woohyun-centric, Sunggyu
Warnings: trigger warnings for body/weight issues, body dysmorphia, and (non-explicit) sexual harassment as elements of female idol life (none glorified)
A/N: I am confident that Infinite’s choreographer Kim Dongmin is a wonderful person who would never take advantage of the trainees/idols he works with. The character bearing his name in this fic is not meant to represent the real person in any way. Also, thanks to [ profile] aerintine for looking this over for me and helping me clean up the ending.
Summary: Everyone in this room got here somehow. Sungkyung’s existence constantly reminds Woohee of the ways in which she’ll never measure up. [always-a-girl canon]

Note: there is a real chance that in the course of this meta that I will betray my lack of gender/queer studies education (I’m so new to this world) and phrase something in a way that’s offensive and/or hurtful.  If that’s the case, I go ahead and completely apologize.  Please feel free to tell me what I’m doing wrong and to correct me in how to be more sensitive with my language.  I’m eager to learn.  (I also don't own any of the images, so I am not claiming credit for them.)

One of the things that’s fascinated me since I first got into kpop is the ubiquity of drag (or at least of males-in-female-costume drag).  It seems like every single male kpop idol has ended up in a dress at some point, dancing (or attempting to dance) to some girl group dance while the audience laughs.  And yet, for all that we see it so often, I rarely get the feeling that there’s anything transgressive about it.  The purpose of it always seems to be humor—and of the broadest, most obvious sort: the idea that there’s something inherently funny about a guy wearing clothes usually designated as female.  There’s rarely anything else going on, so when something else does peep through, it’s all the more amazing for that.
