not to be mean but I think that Minhyun's crying was a little too dramatic. It's only 2 years not 20,
The way you interpret his crying is up to you because your thoughts are your own and I (or anyone else) can’t go in and physically change the way you feel about that.
That being said, I would like to point out that emotions like pain and sadness as a result of an event are relative to the person experiencing them because each person differs in their thoughts, memories and perceptions. To you 2 years might not seem like a lot, but to Minhyun, who has been with the rest of his members for 5+ years, who has trained with them and suffered with them, who has laughed with them and nagged at them to clean things up, who has lived with them for so long that they’re family at this point- to him, the separation isn’t just about the number of years.
It’s a lot more complicated, because the emotions he might have felt include guilt for being the only one to make it, sadness over Jonghyun not making it, bitterness that yes, they did accomplish their goal but not in they way he might have wanted them to. I’m sure the members at some point talked about the possibility of none of them making it or only one of them making it. But you saw how thrown everyone was when Jonghyun didn’t make it because everyone thought for sure he would. Minhyun has always ranked lower than Jonghyun so he might have expected Jonghyun to continue ranking higher than him and when he didn’t it must have been a shock.
I know that I, and other Nu’est and Jonghyun fans, felt a climbing sense of dread as the ranks got higher and higher and Jonghyun hadn’t been called. I’ve never lived with Jonghyun, I’ve never known him at the level Minhyun and his members do. They’re (almost) all the same age so there’s less barriers to becoming close. I can’t imagine how they must have felt when the realization set in that Jonghyun was in danger of not making it (and I use Jonghyun as the main example because everyone expected him to make it) and then the shock when he ranked 14.
His crying probably wasn’t about the 2 years to be honest. 2 years is nothing compared to the years they’ve shared- his crying was maybe born from all memories he has of being together with the members and maybe even from guilt over making instead of Jonghyun. We’ll never know his true emotions in that moment, we’ll never know to what level his sadness ran. I don’t think anyone can truly explain what it feels like to experience anything like that unless we also go through the same thing. So I don’t think we should dismiss his feelings as being “too dramatic” just because we can’t understand them completely, because we’re not him, we haven’t lived his life.
The only other time I remember Minhyun crying with so much emotion was when Jonghyun read a letter to the rest of the members.
(if anyone wants something cheerful if they watch the above video- @bbaekmin makes the best funny videos so please check them out here.)
(also I do not mean to imply by any of this response that Minhyun is not happy about being in the final group. I’m sure he is still very relieved and excited about that- but in the moment the sadness was probably stronger than that happiness. Emotions are nuanced so our perceptions of them should acknowledge that more than 1 emotion can exist at the same time, at different levels, and that his experiencing despair does not mean he will always be in despair or that he won’t enjoy being in Wanna One).
YOU HAVE THAT GIF WHERE (I DONT REMEMBER WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED) WHERE MINSEOK SAYS "I wasnt scared because kris was in front of me and luhan behind me" OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. YOU'RE A XIUHAN HOE YOU SHOULD HAVE IT. PLEASE.

The eyebrow thing is something me and nini-soo noticed. It’s a movement of the eyebrows he does when he feels genuinely happy and carefree, they like go upwards kinda idk how to explain lol
See like the start of the eyebrows go slightly up, since he was a kid ;w;
It’s a thingy that super super common during mama era, cos he was still young and full of amazement lmao
He used to do it especially during fansings
It was a common thing he used to do along with the O_O face yaknow lol
And especially it was a thing he use to do a lot while looking at nini, and it’s not us being delulu it’s like a fact, he might do it with other members too but it’s especially with jongin~
He does it while acting too! He really loves acting..
Or like he did it a lot with In sung, during movie and drama promotions and red carpets and interview cos like he was…truly happy imcry
It’s kind of a rare thing now, at least for US to see, like he does it less on camera/ stage. But I bet it does it a lot off stage, with the members, off camera etc. Tbh we don’t know why it’s a less common thing now, maybe he grew up and he’s more professional on stage so he’s a lil bit more serious but like it still happens, sometimes he lets it slip like today to jongin ç_ç
They eyebrow thing it’s important for us cos it has a lot of meaning in our opinion! I mean we don’t know if this thing is legit but it is for us~ (cos honestly it’s there i mean he does it lol)

Why did Nezumi even need to leave? I mean, he coulda just stayed and chilled with his cute af bf? What does he need to do? These are the questions that keep haunting me since I entered No. 6. This is unreal what is he doing?
nezumi needed to leave because he was so scared. up until now, anyone hes ever loved or has ever loved him died. he was so young when his family died, but old enough to never forget it. his caretaker basically raised him to be vengeful and distrusting to the world around him, never to show vulnerability because anyone hed ever meet is just going to use it against him.
shion made everything so much worse. never before had nezumi met someone who could break down his walls (pun intended) so fucking fast, like it was nothing. he kept pushing shion away, all the while also being unintentionally drawn to him. he still closed himself off, and once he realized just how deeply hed fallen, it was already too late because shion was in his life, shoving love at him from every direction because thats just who shion is, naive and pure but also determined and protective and deep down, angry. nezumi realized he fucked up because he never wanted this, he never wanted love or like or attraction because it all just leads nowhere.
at the end, he knew he needed to leave shion. he had to let shion grow on his own, while nezumi grew, too. they both had too much shit to deal with, and while they could do it together, its better that they did it alone. if he stayed at that point, they wouldve just grown dependent on eachother, and while thats not wrong, it would be very toxic for their already shaky relationship.
he also just needed to leave so that he could accept himself. he was still in denial about his feelings, and he knew he needed to sort them out before he could be the person shion truly deserved at his side. for shion, of course, i dont think this would be an issue because he would accept nezumi as he is, no matter what he did, no matter what he felt for shion (even if itd be painful). nezumi probably knew shion would feel this way, and to him it was all the more reason to leave.
besides shion, nezumi just needs to find himself. now that no.6 isnt surrounded by walls any longer, nezumi is finally somewhat free, i think. he was always angry at the city and ready to see it perish before him, but now that that isnt needed anymore, he feels… empty, maybe? he could try to get accustomed to a normal life, but nezumi isnt like that. hes always been too much of a free spirit to linger somewhere. hes a hopeless wanderer + everything that happened in the correctional facility wouldnt disappear that easily, either.
no matter how tough he acts, under all those layers, hes scared and alone. hes used to seeing horrible things, but that doesnt make it any easier to experience them time and time again. hes sad and bitter and angry and he still left with the promise of reunion and the indent on becoming a better person.
tl;dr nezumi is an angry and scared teenager that has seen some pretty bad shit and i understand why he had to leave while i still believe he will come back for shion
