I know this aired about 84 years ago and that I’m late making these gifs, but I can’t stop thinking about youngbae saying ‘we thought about what we could do to cheer him up’… 

I have this image of the rest of bb forming a separate Whatsapp group to come up with ways to cheer seunghyun up, and then when they started consistently messaging him ‘we miss you’ and drinking wine in his honour 😢 [x] [x] [x]
