going on what that other anon said, that's probably why jiyong feels so lonely. or at least that's a pretty large part. if people are scared/intimidated by you they're less likely to talk to you and get to know you. he's put on this unapproachable and untouchable pedestal and frankly it's hurting him. he just wants some buddies he can talk to and trust and who treat him like he's a normal guy and not a celeb.
