this is going to be really long and cheesy but i guess there’s no helping it. i’ve been really trying to avoid this topic for a long time but as their disbandment date grows shorter and shorter, my heart aches even more.
i really did pray that jbj would become a permanent group. i know that they were just a project group, nothing more and nothing less. and with the situation with taehyun and sanggyun, it made me pray that they extend jbj’s contracts longer. but that’s cruel, especially for the other fans who are waiting for their return to their groups. i have to remind myself that they’ll always be a project group. but seeing them grow together as jbj, from their time in pd101, to their rocky road to becoming jbj, to seeing their chemistry in variety shows, to their first comeback and first win, them performing on award shows, to me personally, they have become more than just a project group. they’re a miracle group, a group that made a dream into a reality, a group that defied odds just to be together, not only for each other’s, but for the fans.
that’s why, once their disbandment comes, instead of being only heartbroken, i’m also gonna be happy for them, because they’ve proven that they don’t need to win a survival program to reach their dreams. that all they need was just the support and love and appreciation that they rightly deserved after being treated badly by the program, by their companies, and by people who only wanted them to stay as nobodies. i’m gonna be heartbroken, but i’m also gonna be happy, because taehyun and sanggyun are finally going back to their groups, and that i’ll be looking forward for their appearances, as well as the debut of the other jbj members in their respective groups. i’m so proud to be a joyful, who was there at their greetings, to also be there to watch their goodbyes.
my one and only biggest regret is that we will never see jbj as the ot7 that we dreamed of. i wish that maybe in the future, if jbj decides to promote together again, is that we see taedong with them as well. but for now, i pray for their dreams and the success that they deserve, as individuals and as members of their original groups. and i hope that joyfuls will continue supporting the members where they go.
