The recent fan meeting was a freaking emotional roller coaster.
Niel gets a lot of shit from angels and he revealed he almost left but chose to stay.
The ‘talks’ for them to stay as 6 was too much for them and you can see in their faces how much it broke them.
They almost disbanded.
They talked about LJoe
Cap, as their leader, doesn’t like Ljoe leaving but as a friend, he supports Ljoe.
Chunji, Ricky and Niel cried, something that they have so rarely done in 7 years.
Ricky cried so hard that Changjo had to read the letter for him.
Changjo rapped Ljoe’s parts.
The 95 liner and hyung line partnered up for games and there were some touching.
Maknae line danced their stupid dance.
CapJi were too sweet.
Niel joined CapJi.
They had fun.
Mind you, there was no security. Like always. Angels were respectful.
Angels cried hard as fuck.
They stayed together as a group, apologized for being just 5 and making us wait long, but promised to make good memories with us.
They stayed together for each other and for Angels.
“Fight for what matters to you, [ no matter what ]. Because even if you fall short, what better way is there to live?
It’s easy to feel hopeful on a beautiful day like today,but there will be dark days ahead of us too, and there’ll be days where you feel all alone, and that’s when hope is needed most.”
I hope you are happy in your future endeavours. I hope you succeed in everything you do as an actor, unlike you could in Teen Top. The thorns have been moved fro your way, now you can continue to walk a flowery path. The Angles will always love you. We cannot imagine Teen Top songs without your raps and your iconic English. It’s like we’ve lost a diamond, something precious we never knew how much it meant to us until we let it go.
I hope succeed as an actor. You may not be L.Joe now, but you are still the star in our hearts. We will be supporting you Lee Byunghun. I wish you all the best, and I want you to know w love you so very much. Our love will not diminish, it will only increase as we continue to see your beautiful, genuine smile.
after some consideration, i am ultimately proud of l.joe. knowing he couldn’t tolerate the mistreament from the company and retaliating against them is beautiful. he’s strong, and yeah, he dropped so many hints about it that i think this is just like tearing off the band-aid. the last sting of a burn. of course, it’s disheartening to know that he didn’t want to see it to the end with the members, but he has his dreams too. he has wants and desires and other things he fell in love with along the way, but it doesn’t mean he loves teen top any less. his issue is with the company in itself. and mending the tension between them at this point would be really difficult. all i hope from this is that l.joe gets what he wants. i hope he’ll be happy, even if it’s not with teen top. and i hope everyone– the fans especially– will continue supporting him. he needs us the most right now. right here, when he feels the most alone.
