I’ll be releasing good music Fighting, everyone, until the very end.” — Soyou
“Hello Star1. This is Bora.Every year I say that the fans make me happy and I’ve had so much fun and been so happy for the past 7 years.The time that the SISTAR members have spent with Star1 were very precious and happy times. It seems like I have reached further out than my efforts have shown. I feel more and more sad that I wasn’t able to show an even better side of myself during SISTAR’s promotions.For me, it was difficult to always show a bright image but the fans always gave me even more strength. In the future, I will never forget to this image and continue being strong. I got a lot of memories while writing this. Now, the members will all be going their separate ways, I will be cheering for them.But it’s not like you all won’t ever see me. In the future, I will put in the effort to show a good image of myself as Yoon Bora.To everyone who loved both SISTAR and Bora, to everyone who stuck with us, thank you. It was a happy time. I will be happy in the future too. I love you.”— Bora

The members of SISTAR have chosen to continue on a new path to move onto our second stage in life.STAR1, you guys have showed us how happy it can be to get up on stage, sing, and be loved by someone…and we thank you for that. With great sadness, we will continue to support each other and grow and show you a better side of us. The members and STAR1 will forever be in my heart and thank you for giving me more love than I deserve. I thank you with all my heart, and I love you..” — SISTAR’s Leader Hyorin
“For our fans, STAR1!I’m very sorry for greeting you guys after such a long time. I have so much I want to say to you guys that I am having trouble thinking of what to say first.It’s been 7 years since we debuted as SISTAR. I just want to say thank you to everyone who supported us throughout all these years.Thanks to the continued love and support, we were able to continue as SISTAR for such a long time. I really believe it’s because of you guys that everyone in our group along with myself, got here.It is with a heavy heart that I say that we will be disbanding after this album. We wish you guys will support us with our individual activities and we will return the favor as well.I will work harder and stronger from now on to connect with my fans even better.Cheer for us! Thank you.” — Dasom
All of these Gym Seb videos are making me feel (after I stop fainting and needing to fan myself at the attractive person doing strong things) super bad about myself by comparison, because here I am, a hideous fat blob sat at a desk for 8 hours a day only to go home and be too exhausted to do anything other than cook a lazy dinner and sit on a sofa until sleepy time, so I’m going to put this here for myself and anyone else who needs it:
Getting this fit is literally these people’s jobs.
When actors like Seb or Hemsworth or whoever are gearing up to go be a superhero for a few weeks or months or however long it takes to film this shit, they’re not squeezing in a visit to the gym after a day of systems analysis or teaching basic literacy skills to small children or bagging people’s groceries, they’re… working out for a living. They don’t have a full day’s worth of admin to plough through before rocking up to the gym and doing a day’s training like you might do. They don’t have exams they should be revising for. They’re literally getting up and going to the gym several days a week because it’s their job. It’s not your job. So it’s not a fair point of comparison to look at them and feel bad about yourself if you work a desk job, or if your thyroid is fucked, or you’ve got arthritis in your knees, and so you’re too tired or haven’t got enough time to put that much more work in on top of the amount you’re already able to do in order to look like the super people in the movies we enjoy.
We’re all doing our best, and we’re all beautiful.
