When my friend told me to look up a video called “MaMa Beat” so she could hear my reaction, I did so reluctantly. I found the video gory and frightening, and I thought it was another failed attempt to have me join one of her fandoms. However, I found myself strangely drawn to those boys and before I knew it, I had watched all of their videos. I didn’t expect them to end up meaning so much. I didn’t expect to come to love and adore these six wonderful, talented boys, along with their weirdness that I still can’t describe. And yet, almost a year later, here I am, always hoping that they’re smiling and enjoying life. I love the way they play together and how they’re so silly. Even through hardships such as military enlistment and other long waits, I will be here to support them. There will always be a very special place in my heart for LC9.
