In this time where the world, as well as kpop is becoming more aware of the impact of mental illness. I’d like to reiterate just how important it is that we realize idols are not perfect and that we should not expect them to be. To be an idol, you have to be so incredibly brave because you really don’t know if you’re going to make it or if you’ll be left behind. And even when you make it, there is still a lack of clarity and you have endless expectations thrust upon you. So, thank you to all Idols, whether a trainee or debuted, because you are pursing your dreams and giving so much hope to others.

“When I was first writing the song ‘Fool’…I may have been inspired to write lyrics of longing while missing Nam Taehyun. ‘Fool’ does actually contain those emotions. I did start writing the song with the motif of missing Taehyun.” - Kang Seungyoon

“I still dream about Nam Taehyun. Whenever I dream, WINNER is still five members. I think that my unconscious still thinks that we’re five members. It can’t be helped.” - Lee Seunghoon

Dear Taehyun,

I hear you’re finally leaving Winner, and you’re finally leaving YG.

That’s good.

Go.

Go get better. Go resolve your inner demons. Go find happiness. Go find respect. Go find peace. Go find strength. Go find contentment. Go find a second chance. Go find joy. Go find comfort. Go find rest. Go find time. Go find energy. Go find new life. Go find hope. Go find grace. Go find self esteem. Go find self worth. Go find a plan. Go find love.

And we’ll go alongside you.
