Can you imagine the hardships Yongguk had to go through? Struggling with depression, anxiety and panic attacks while living the life of an idol???
The media pressure is a killer, it can ruin a mentally healthy person, but can you imagine what Yongguk felt as people analysed everything he has said and done? As if it wasn’t enough, he is also the leader of B.A.P so he had to take way more bullets than a normal idol. And with the long hiatus that must have been one of the most stressful experiences in his idol life…wow, I am at a loss of words, he had to confront so many obstacles!!!
Not to mention that he is also a producer and lyricist. It takes a lot of courage to release a song in which you poured your feelings, you develop an emotional connection with everything you create, he must have been so anxious about how people feel about his songs! I am so proud of him for having the courage to cope with this for so long!
I am so proud of him for proving people how strong he is and I am even prouder of him for accepting to go on a hiatus and take proper care of his mental health before it got worse! I don’t know how many fans really understand how hard it is for a person like Yongguk to do what he has done, to pretend that everything is fine, to never give the fans reasons to worry, to take care of his dongsaengs while having a hard time himself, to open up in front of so many people through his songs when he probably only wanted to get away from everything…But I really hope no one will criticise him for his decision and the only messages he will receive will be full of warm and supportive words!
Guys, how do you deal with the preassure of elder people? I am just a bi that gets smad very easy and I am very stressed at every family meeting because they always mention wedding/kids, and it must be worse for you :c any tips to survive?
