Yes, the new wave of Only13ness sucks. It sucked deeply last time it came by as well.
That’s why I was actually glad Eunhyuk came out and said “stop” (because that’s what he is saying). I would never have guessed that would make fans of Henry and Zhoumi this upset…
I am not surprised - however - by the fact that fans assume it was SM who forced Eunhyuk to say something. Or that fans are raging at SM for not giving Henry and Zhoumi “what they deserve”.
Last time Only13 reared it’s ugly head, the people who didn’t get what they deserved were said to be the members of Super Junior. When SNSD got a tin box for their album it meant Super Junior didn’t get what they deserved. When someone else got an award, it was Super Junior who didn’t get what they deserved.
The problem is; it’s not relevant what we think our idol deserve. As fans, of course we want them to get the best of everything, all the time. But that’s an unrealistic expectation. No one never gets everything they deserve, just as some people sometimes get more than they deserve.
Henry has debuted as a solo artist. He kills it at tv shows, and I am so proud of him. He has come a long way, and he has done it so elegantly. And he didn’t need Only13 ELFs to accept him in order to do that. Because he can do whatever he wants. Oh yes. He is the Laugod. Do kids these days still joke about that or…?
