a new beginning lyrics

Important lyrics in Bobby’s ‘LOVE AND FALL’ album
  • The prettiest curve on you is the smile on your lips (’FIREWORK’)
  • Girl, just because Wonder Woman is strong, that doesn’t mean it’s ok to hurt her (’LEAN ON ME’)
  • You don’t believe in God but, I thank God for sending me a treasure like you (’LEAN ON ME’)
  • I ran crazily, not knowing I became an adult, trying to pretend I live without worries so my mom won’t get worried (’RUNAWAY’)
  • Now I’m smiling like you and am happy. Before, I took everything for granted. But you change me, my girl. (’ALIEN’)
  • I’ll hold onto you when you’re about to collapse. I’ll be your shoulder so you can rest, I’ll walk with you when no one’s there. I won’t let go of your hand. (’IN LOVE)
  • Don’t be pressured, I won’t force you girl. (’SECRET’)
  • I lost another friend, jealousy can commit murder. (’UP’)
  • They say I’m like a rainbow, both the ladies and the men. (’UP’)
  • I know there’s no such thing as fair play between a guy and a girl. (’TENDAE’)
  • Would we be different if we understood each other a little more? (’I LOVE YOU’)

Story of Another Us // 5 Seconds of Summer

Finally have a chance to post this.. my new tattoo! It’s a lyric from “A Happy Beginning” that Colin wrote out for me in his Killian script at FT5! He was super sweet about the whole thing, he asked if I knew were I was getting it (it’s on the outside of my left forearm) and if I was attending another con and if I’d show it to him if I was. I said, “Yes! Of course!” and then he smiled that adorable shy Colin smile and said, “I hope you like it.” (Pffft. It’s perfect, Colin, thank you!)

I felt like a lot of stuff in my life has changed and not at all because of my career but just because stuff changes as you get older and I found myself yearning for my past, for no reason specifically other than… it had gone. It had happened and I missed elements of it. I didn’t want to be back there - I just missed elements of it. And it felt like all of us were moving on, like with our own things and its not about a love relationship, like with an ex, its about my relationships with everyone that I love. And I miss a lot of those people. It’s not that we’ve fallen out or anything, its just that we’ve all got our own lives going on.

Dear uri leader Kim Jong Hyun, don’t be sad. You’re the greatest leader I’ve ever known.

I know you won’t read this, but I’ll write it anyway because I need to transform this sadness and disappointment into something else and hope that someday you will read this and know how much you mean for a lot of people.

I first knew you from Produce 101 as a part of trainees who have already debuted. I didn’t even know that a group name NU’EST exists (so I will thank Mnet for this, and just this). At first, I didn’t really notice you until you told the story about being NU’EST leader during Sorry Sorry period, and how you feel that the group’s failure is your fault (just to be clear, it’s not!). Since then my eyes are drawn to your hardworking and sincere image – and when you made a miracle by believing in Hyunbin until the end, transforming him into reliable member of the team, that’s when I knew that you’re an amazing human being and leader – not many people will go to such length to make sure other people be better at what they do, sacrificing their own practise time to teach the lacking one(s), and from that day, my fixed pick is you.

Seeing your legendary stage with Justice League team made me feel so proud and happy as your fan, and I became more curious about you. I tried to look for more of your footage but you’re hardly there haha I was so frustrated as you didn’t show up that much in the whole episode. But then Mnet released the individual cam, and I came to learn that you’re actually an amazing dancer. Maybe not as reknown as Taehyun, Samuel, Daniel or Ong, but you have that power that draw me into your stage performance. It’s like you became different person on stage and that really fascinated me. I also really love your signature ‘ha ha’ laugh, it’s super adorable >.<

Since then, I started rooting sincerely for you. I saw the ‘leader’ sticker has been pasted again on your shirt during the Position evaluation mission (Fear), and can’t help to wonder about the process as it wasn’t aired by Mnet. Again, you helped the inexperienced member to become better in rapping. The output? Look at Guanlin! I believe you have a role in his rap development during Produce 101. After that, I finally got to watch your performance and I was really touched by your rap lyrics in ‘Fear’. It must be hard to bear that huge responsibility since you’re young, right?  It must be suffocating to hold it by yourself, right? My heart aches by just imagining myself in your position, from your trainee period until 5 years as NU’EST leader and going through ups and downs during those hard time. That’s why I sincerely wish you all the happiness in the world – you have no idea how happy I am when you finally reached number 1 position in the 2nd elimination. I brag about it all day to my friends, even the one that don’t know anything about Kpop haha.

Then come the concept evaluation stage with Never (my favorite!), and you instantly picked as a leader again without me knowing the process as Mnet just edited it all out. I wanted you to become greedier and get more part as I really wanted to see you shine more (because you’re the coolest when you’re on stage), but what I got is 4 seconds footage of you instead. No worries, because that 4 seconds were the killing part for me. You’re such a great performer! Eventhough the team didn’t win, you managed to score 1st spot in various music chart so I was (and still am) extremely proud and happy for you! I understand that the filming process and practising the song must be exhausting for all of you, so I wanted to cheer you more. Your hardworking, selfless and genuine self is an inspiration for me to be a better individual. Everytime I’m having a hard time, I always remember that you must’ve experienced it way harder than I do, but you strive towards it anyway.

Last Friday, that ‘leader’ position was automatically yours again in Super Hot team (4 times leader in a row!). This week, watching the last song evaluation when all of the trainees danced for center position, I was thrilled because finally I was able to witness you as center position! Never have I imagined in my life that this day would come, even if it’s just for the 40 seconds test video (because I know eventually you will give up that position to someone else). Your video was my favorite by the way in terms of dancing. I was so worried when I saw your birthday prank, it must be very overwhelming for you to be pointed out in front of the ‘juniors’ for the mistake that didn’t even exist.  

You always work the hardest among the trainees (do you know how I can’t focus during seonho & daehwi self cam because I was busy looking at you keep practicing your dancing and look so tired?!) that I know and I want you to receive as much love as you give to other people, not only in Produce 101 but also NU’EST fans before. I want you to re-debut through Produce 101 and walk the flower path from now on. But as international fans, all I can do is just hoping and praying that Korean public realize your potential as much as I do and vote for you to become the top 11.  However, apparently God has other plan for you. I honestly wanted to jumped out to my laptop screen and give you the biggest, warmest hug when they announced your rank. I can’t bear to see your disappointed face again leader nim, and witnessing you holding your emotion is heartbreaking to me.

I just want to say, you’ve worked very hard and I want you to know, that no matter what happens, I’ll will always support you and other NU’EST members. You’re the greatest leader for NU’EST and the one leader that Wanna-One team will regret to never have. I long for the day when I can see you again on stage, singing and dancing, showing off your skill to lots of people and do the things that you love the most. Please don’t worry dear leader nim, this is not the end. This is the beginning of new chapter in your life. Like your lyrics, even though it’s a one way path, I’ll walk the opposite way with you. 힘내세요, 김종현! 사랑해요!

PERFECT

Jinhwan:
I was wrong, Baby come back to me
Yeah, I wanna see you now, but it’s too late
Love always just passes me by..
I realize for the forst time what I’ve lost.

Yunhyeong:
Just from your smile, always (always)
Please forgive me for being thoughtless and selfish
Chanwoo:
So even if you shed only a single tear
Please just let me go, even if you can’t forget me

Refrain

Junhoe:
I even broke the mirror
That reflected me for the evil I am
Jinhwan:
Oh baby, baby
I’m a fool for losing you
I know I’m late realzing that
I’m overwhelmed by regret
Honestly, I’m the worst.

Junhoe:
I was wrong, baby come back to me
All the good memories are breaking my heart
To think that I finally understand the pain you had then
After your love had disappeared.

Donghyuk:
Just from your smile, always (always)
Please forgive me for being thoughtless and selfish
Chanwoo:
So even if you shed only a single tear
Please just let me go, even if you can’t forget me

Refrain

Junhoe
I even broke the mirror
That reflected me for the evil I am
Jinhwan:
Oh baby, baby
I’m a fool for losing you
I know I’m late realzing that
I’m overwhelmed by regret
Honestly, I’m the worst.

Hanbin:
The baseless confidence and pride that I had,
have already given away
You poured all your love into me,
but now you’re gone and I can’t do anything
I’ve hit rock bottom, it’s so pathetic.

Bobby:
All I’ve got are regrets, as you’d expect
I can’t focus on anything all day long
I’m searching for the voice I can’t hear now, oh
Even just a little bit, even I’m like this,
You showed me the way.

Refrain

Yunhyeong:
I even broke the mirror
That reflected me for the evil I am
Donghyuk:
Oh baby, baby
I’m a fool for losing you
I know I’m late realzing that
I’m overwhelmed by regret
Honestly, I’m the worst.

eric’s marriage + thoughts

A prerequisite to this post is that at the end of the day Eric wanting to get married is not and should not be an issue. I am happy that he will be starting this new chapter in his life. I just wanted to share some thoughts I have been having about the current situation.

I have only been a Shinhwa Changjo for only 2 years now. In the context of Shinhwa’s career that is a minuscule amount of time. Regardless, Shinhwa are a group that I love deeply, and I have never felt such a strong sense of attachment towards an idol group before. I have had an interest in K-pop for about 6 years, and I have of course liked other groups in the past. But Shinhwa are different, my love for them is much deeper.

In the back of my mind I had always known that they would get married eventually, they’re in their late 30s after all. But, I had a tendency to brush it off, dismiss the idea. After seeing Eric’s post about his marriage I was shocked, somehow I wasn’t expecting it. Even after hearing the news of Eric and Na Hyemi dating, and that they’ve been together for over 3 years. It still caught me completely off guard.

That being said, Eric’s marriage announcement isn’t the first I have been through. Back in 2014 Super Junior’s Sungmin released the news that he was getting married. The two cases don’t hold much similarity to each other, other than the fact that Eric and Sungmin are both active idols. But, I still would like to mention it because of the contrast. I remember the havoc Sungmin’s announcement wreaked within the fandom, both domestically and internationally. Fansites closed, people left the fandom and there were even petitions for him to be kicked from the group. Even now after over 2 years, whenever Sungmin is mentioned in the media, these sentiments still ring true to some. The fandom (especially within Korea) seemed to turned their backs on Sungmin. It was scary to see people who had been his fans for years suddenly lash out, and say they felt betrayed. The situation of which the marriage was announced wasn’t well timed. Fans were also angry that they only heard the news through the media. The other members later mentioning that there was miscommunication between him and the members regarding his marriage. There is a lot more to Sungmin’s case that I won’t mention here. If you’re interested, you should read into it yourself.

Shinhwa Changjo’s should be thankful that Eric announced it himself. I’m thankful that Eric isn’t receiving the same backlash, because as I previously mentioned, it was scary to watch. The vast majority of Shinhwa Changjo’s as a whole seem to be taking the news well. Sadly, at the same time the announcement has instilled fear regarding the future of the group. Shinhwa has continually promised that the group will stay together for many years to come. They’ve had many instances were disbandment could have occurred, but they were able to survive. Next year will mark their 20th anniversary, something that many groups can only dream of. I hope that between now and then (and beyond that!) Shinhwa Changjo’s will keep supporting Shinhwa and Eric. It’s sad to see fans leave over something like this. We need to trust them to keep their promises.

I won’t argue with fans who are somewhat disheartened by the news. It’s understandable. To fans of Eric, you’re allowed to feel a bit sad, it’s completely natural. I myself, will probably be exactly like you (probably in a worse state tbh lmao) if/when Junjin announces his marriage, and I know other members’ fans will feel the same when it’s their time too. I feel like we need Dongwan to gather us all together and nag about Shinhwa not being responsible for our lives, because sometimes we forget (sorry oppayam ^^;;).

The fandom seems quite spooked at the moment, fully expecting the sudden influx of the remaining 5 announcing their own marriages. The only advice I can give is that we, the fans, need to stick together. The one thing we seem to need as much as Shinhwa is each other. (*insert We’re All in This Together - High School Musical OST* lol sorry the was cheesy) I know the fact they’re getting married is scary and a little bittersweet, but we need to keep supporting them.

This isn’t the end, but a new beginning.

quick song rec; IU - Heart

The song lyrics seem to fit quite well for an idol-fan relationship, and I was reminded of it after the announcement came out. So I’d like to dedicate it to my fellow Shinhwa Changjo’s out there. You are not alone, everyone’s feeling at least a little uneasy right now. Let’s put on a smile and support Shinhwa til the end~!
