baekho and ren

Minhyun and NU’EST W congratulating each other after M Countdown finished! 

So much happened today:

- NU’EST W perfectly executed “Hello” readjusting the choreography where Ren and Aron covered Minhyun’s parts. 

-Minhyun watched NU’EST W performances and sang along to “If you” the song which is about him and how much the members miss him.

-Minhyun imminently turned around after the show ended to look behind him for his members LMAO “Minhyun look we won M countdown” “OK sure but where are my members???”

-Baekmin shared eye contact across the stage

-Minhyun waved to Aron trying to get his attention which he eventually did

-In the bts video, Minhyun grabs JR’s arm to get his attention and then bows to him.

-OT5 gets separated because too many people are in the way. But NU’ EST W members congratulate Wanna One on winning, the kids are really happy to see Baekho who enthusiastically talks to them.

-Minhyun tries to run after his members reaching the exit

-Even before leaving the exit his head is shooting around looking for NU’EST W, he looks excited. 

-THE BEST PART IS MINHYUN’S FACE LIGHTS UP AND HE LOOKS SO FUCKING HAPPY (gif above) THAT HIS MEMBERS WAITED FOR HIM AT THE EXIT.

-His members all clap for him and he gives them a “fighting!” sign

It’s pretty clear the thing Minhyun looked forward to the most was seeing his members, it’s like he was starved for their presence. He was chasing after them and looking for them so cutely.

This might be the only ot5 interaction we see in 1.5 years so I’ll deeply treasure this moment.

We will wait for him to come home <3

Seeing these two amazing leaders together makes me so sad. Kahi started crying because she saw Nu’est and Jonghyun said he almost cried because of Kahi. The moment I saw Kahi crying I started bawling as well. Kahi was the one who first introduced Nu’est back when they debuted and I think she feels like a mother to them. I just checked instagram and saw that former After School member/leader Jungha also posted about Nu’est saying that she supports them. Lizzy commented on Jungha’s post about how sad it was to see them. I’m just glad that Pledis Artists are supporting them even if Pledis itself isn’t doing a good job.

Also hearing Baekho saying that he wishes Nu’est was as popular as Seventeen or IOI just breaks my heart. These boys are so talented and I just hope that after this they can finally get the recognition they deserve. As always I want to wish all the contestants luck throughout this really tiring and emotional process. © ©

I was not expecting NU’EST W to break down and cry the way they did

Everything seemed fine, then as soon as they were about to sing Hello 2017 ver, Baekho mentioned their hardships and all the “incidents” (for him of course, the rumours about him, and the tragic sudden passing of his father, Rest in Peace), and this is when the other members lost it seeing Baekho cry, and they started crying themselves.

I thought they were just nervous because they haven’t done a proper performance in over a year and were scared to cover Minhyun’s parts. But it seems they were holding a lot more inside, a lot of pain, and suddenly let it all out in the end.

Jonghyun said how hard the past almost 6 years have been, they all did. They thanked their fans over and over again, they still think they are living in a dream. Ren even posted in the fan cafe today saying that at times all the members wanted to quit and run away, but Loves made them fight through it.

I really wasn’t prepared for them to cry like this, I haven’t seen all of them (Minus Minhyun) cry like this since JR’s letter in 2014 to the members. Baekho’s pain was enough to make the other members unable to control themselves, they are so deeply close it’s like their reactions are connected.

JR and Ren crying I wasn’t as shocked about, but to see Aron as well as Baekho… I’m still in shock. 

When they performed Hello 2017, they did so while crying, JR’s rap and Baekho’s vocals gave me chills. He put his whole body and soul into his rap, I felt all four of their emotions so deeply- this was the most emotional performance they have EVER done

I felt their pain of being apart from Minhyun, Baekho’s personal struggles and everything they have been through for so many years, all compiled into one hell of an emotionally overbearing performance.

Today marks a special day in history for NU’EST, not only a complete music chart reversal. But today feel’s like closure. It feels like they let all their pain and emotion out today, in order to be stronger tomorrow. They reminded us they are 5 members today as well. 

I think I am finally able to accept Minhyun is in Wanna One because the NU’EST W members have accepted it.

I cried a lot today. From now on together with NU’EST, we can be stronger tomorrow, and fight even harder for their dreams to come true.

introduction into nu’est

debuted March 14, 2012 with “Face” under pledis entertainment

fandom ㄴ.ㅇ.ㅅ.ㅌ (pronounced LOVE from the way you spell Nu’est in Korean 뉴이스트) fandom color hot pink

did pretty well during debut promotions but popularity kept declining due to shitty promotions from company and lack of comebacks  

many thought Nu’est was near disbandment

4 members (Jonghyun, Minki, Minhyun and Dongho) joined Produce 101 Season 2 in hopes of proving their skills and saving Nu’est

all four members made it to the finale but only Minhyun made it into the top11 (#9) and got to debut with wanna-one 

other members ranked 13 (Dongho), 14 (Jonghyun) and 20 (Minki)

but they did not fail because they did prove themselves throughout the show and gained a lot of popularity internationally and nation-wide 

in hopes that they continue to gain popularity I am making an introductory to the members of Nu’est for the new and upcoming ㄴㅇㅅㅌ’s :)))

thats everything I can remember about the nu’est members pls support and love them

A hug for the ㄴ.ㅇ.ㅅ.ㅌ fandom!

Even though we’re sad, let’s acknowledge all the hard work they did:

JR proved himself as a leader to national producers and most importantly, to himself!

Let’s acknowledge Aron waiting on the sidelines and quietly supporting his members!

Baekho for slowly gaining his confidence back and taking charge to help his fellow trainees! He also caught the attention of National Producers for his vocal ability and many sides!

Minhyun getting into Wanna One, showing off his honey vocals, showcasing good teamwork, and staying humble!

Ren, for bringing the fun and sass to PD101, recruiting new Gaga fans, nailing his performances, and adopting half of the trainees (😂).

Let’s keep supporting both Wanna One and NU'EST!

If anyone wants to vent, my ask box is open!
