She broke up with Hao-hao, but he always tracked her down. Called her… Begged her to come back… Again and again. As if under a spell or hypnotized… She couldn’t escape. She always came back. She told herself that she had NT$ 500,000 in the bank. When she’d used it up, she would leave him for good. This happened ten years ago… In the year 2001. The world was greeting the 21st century and celebrating the new millennium.
Since I was born, I’ve always been the one with the favorite. I’ve had a favorite doll that I always bring with me, a favorite cousin that I shower with gifts and kisses, a favorite candy that make my teeth rot, and now I have 7 favorite boys that I love so dearly. Probably someday, I’d move on and leave this fan girl life. Maybe I’d find someone that’ll be the center of my universe as you boys are to me right now. But for now, I just want to thank you for everything that you’ve done for me and for everyone.
To Kim Namjoon, thank you for being the pillar that we all needed. With the eloquent speeches that your members wanted to express but didn’t know how and the expressive lyrics that have not only touched but also comforted peoples’ (fans or not) hearts, you’ve showed us how the right words could save and inspire another person’s life.
To Kim Seokjin, thank you for bringing laughter and joy to everyone with your old man jokes and your ridiculous confidence. You’ve made us realize that it is always more gratifying to hear other people’s laughter mingling with our own even with the little things we say and do.
To Min Yoongi, thank you for expressing yourself in the music that you make and the actions that you show. You’ve taught us that even through the most vulnerable of words expressed, one could still be strong and resilient yet even without the presence of words, love can still be felt.
To Jung Hoseok, thank you for lifting everyone’s mood up every single time. You’ve made us believe that even when we think the world is always against us, there’s always that light at the end of the tunnel and all we needed is a little spark of hope to keep moving forward.
To Park Jimin, thank you for letting your happiness shine through to your laughter and smiles. You’ve showed us that no matter how sad we’re feeling, a little act of kindness and compassion can be shown through just a little crack of a smile.
To Kim Taehyung, thank you for being and thinking completely out of the box. You’ve showed us the importance of embracing our true selves by being unique and different. and that no mater what anyone says, at the end of the day, how we accept ourselves is what really matters most.
To Jeon Jungkook, thank you for showing us your will and determination in everything that you do. You’ve inspired us to be the best version of ourselves and made us realize that we can reach our dreams with the right amount of effort and passion for it.
To Bangtan, thank you for the beautiful songs that touch our hearts. the words you’ve written and the lyrics you’ve sung mean more to us not only because they mean a lot to you, but also because we know those words and melodies were made with the thought of us.
Thank you for showing us your beautiful camaraderie and friendship right from the start. You’ve taught us that platonic love is as important as every other love there is and that it should never be taken for granted because during times when we feel alone in the dark, only the people who’ve accepted who you are as a person are also the only people who’d hold your hand and never let you walk alone to make you feel that you are never alone in this cold, cold world.
Lastly, thank you for loving us every way you know how. each of you goes out of your way just to let us know that we’re always in your mind, never making us feel that we’re only on the outside looking in. with every tweet, every vlive, and even in speech acceptance stages, you’ve made us feel as if we’re all standing right there beside you, holding your hand and i think that’s what we all love the most about you. I honestly don’t know the right words to say because i have so much feelings that even hundreds of thousands of words could not be enough to express whatever it is i’m feeling right now. All I can say is that I love you guys. So, so much. And that I’m proud of whatever each of you have become in those 4 years we’ve spent with you.
Happy 4th Anniversary to the beautiful boys who never fail to inspire me, to the playful dorks who never fail to make me laugh, to the gorgeous men who never fail to make my heart hurt just by looking at them, and to the lovable kids who didn’t fail to make me love them with all my heart.
I love you, 방탄소년단!
Let’s be together for a long time! Keep surprising people and let’s show the world why you deserve the world and more. #4yearswithBTS
Whenever I’m reminded of the sad moments in my life, and this the honest truth, I stop and think of Taeyeon and suddenly, I’m okay.
Kim Taeyeon, you have been so strong for everyone while accepting all those criticisms against you and the rest of the girls. You’ve refused to shed tears and let anyone see a crack because that’s what people expect from you. The life you chose is one definitely not a walk in the park because everyone’s eyes are all on you. You’re not new to these words and my god, you’ve been exposed to this for quite some time. But you know what breaks my heart the most? It’s the fact that of all people who’d spouted stupid nonsense against you are the people that are supposed to be the ones fighting beside you. I’ve seen fans turn their backs and never look back, even saying words they swore they would never say to you. People doubt your abilities all the time, question your sincerity as if they know you personally, and just spew venom in order to bring you down. But like a pillar made to withstand the greatest disaster, you’re still standing strong with your head held high and your back straightened as if you’re ready for the worst to come. And what I love about you the most is the fact that you know when to speak and stand your ground when you’re being unfairly aggravated but you also know when to not say a thing at all. And I can say proudly really, that I don’t look at you with only just a fan’s eyes but also as a woman who’s looking at you with pride and respect.
But Taeyeon, I hope you know you’re not alone in that war. You have us, you have your members, you have people around you that care about you. I hope you know that while yes, being strong is important and necessary in the cruel world you’re currently living in, letting yourself fall sometimes and admitting that you’re not okay is as important as well.
And despite all things, I hope you never stop doing the thing you love the most. Anyone with eyes and ears can see that you perform with all your heart. You may not let just anyone in, but with your high notes and breathy tone, you’re able to let us catch a glimpse of your vulnerability and it’s the most beautiful thing. I honestly don’t know why this took an emotional turn, but I love you so much. The world is not enough for someone like you. Take everything you could get because you deserve it and more. Happy birthday, Taeng. The ultimate smol of all smols. Thank you for being so strong. #KingTaeyeonDay
