Someone once asked me “Why do you love him so much you don’t even know what he’s really like? What if he’s actually a jerk and rude to people?” I don’t think there is an easy answer to this. I don’t know what he’s really like as I have never met him. I see what everyone else sees, interviews and videos of him that allows us a small snippet of them. From these short times and watching him over the years I’ve come to the conclusion he is not an angry person nor would he do something irrationally. I believe he has a good soul and is very aware of himself and what he does and says.
Watching the newest mv made me think to myself how amazing not only Gun is but all of them. I talk about Gun so much that I feel like I never truly give enough praise to the group as a whole. I love how they have built this strong family dynamic that loves and trusts one another fully. I love watching them interact and share their lives with each other. Seeing the love and passion they all have for music and the arts is awe inspiring. They work so hard to get where they are now and I am so proud to say I bias them all. Although I talk the most about my own bias I adore all seven of them so much. They are a group that has helped me the most with my own internal battles. My own personal beacons of light to guide me on a dark day. Gun’s light being the brightest for me as I look to him the most. There is just something about him that I was instantly drawn in by. Sure he’s attractive and sexy but there is just something about Gun that makes me want to get to know him. I want to see him smile and laugh all the time. I get so much joy from just watching him do anything. From a simple interview to a music video, he never fails to make me proud and say that’s my bias.
Going back to why I started this whole long ramble really. The music video is amazing and Gun being in this bright cheerful setting hit me hard. It really matches him well and oddly matched me calling him my light. I couldn’t help but get emotional watching the video and seeing him smile and just be himself. I feel as though all of them showed what makes them happiest in the music video. Seeing Gun be a ray of light has always been something I will say and I will continue to say it. I just hope others can see his warmth and heart and feel the rays of light for themselves. He has helped me more than I can ever say and will ever be able to properly put into words.
So why do I love him? It’s simple really.
Cause he’s Iwata Takanori
