There was a frat house within walking distance of our dorm, and the street to get there was notable for the number of cuddly cats that would come up to you and ask to be petted. One night as me and a few other friends are stumbling dead drunk back to our dorm, I see a shadowy figure and my brain screams ‘CAT’ and I chase after it screaming “let me pet you”. One of my more sober friends yanks me back and hisses in my ear: “That is a raccoon.”
Imagine debuting with your company’s debt hanging over your shoulders. Hearing from multiple critics that you’ll be overshadowed in less than a year by your competitors. Being unsure of your future and whether this will all be worth it in the end. Your work hard; attending multiple concerts and fansigns and variety shows. You work on and improve your music, your acting, your dancing, your variety skills, your stage presence, your singing. And you get to the point where the debt is not only paid off, but your company is able to recruit trainees and get a new building. And now, your hard work is about to aid yet another(!) act in following their dreams.
I’m honestly so proud of B1A4 and all they’ve accomplished.
