the more this team tweets the more i love them

Hello. This is ZE:A’s leader, Lee Hoo.

When I look back on the past month, it’s been a stormy time.
I first sincerely apologize for causing worry during that stormy time.

Since my teenage years, I dreamt of one dream, and lived for that one thing ever since. I wanted to be more active and more successful than anyone else, but due to two unfortunate accidents, I wasn’t able to do so and went through a difficult time by myself. But more than me being in pain, it was a very excruciating time as I felt apologetic for not being able to promote together while I was the leader.

For the past month, I expressed my opinions on SNS.
I know very well the public’s reactions to my tweet, saying it was ‘thoughtless and emotional.’ I too am self-reflecting on them. Yes, my first tweet was emotional. Disagreements with an agency is something that occurs in any celebrity company, and the members and I were working hard to solve these problems.

As I am an only child, the ZE:A members, who have been with me for a long time, are more than just a team, but family. At the time, even though I was hurt and in pain, I was able to withstand it.
But when my member, whom I love more than myself, got hurt, I lost my senses. And I fell into a very emotional stage.

The 12th, a day before the Japanese fanmeeting, member Tae Hun received a martial arts injury. With that issue as the start, the complaints of the members maximized. It was very difficult to fight with the company. Coming to the conclusion that we could no longer communicate with the company, I began to expose the reality of ZE:A through SNS, believing in the fans and the public.
Profit distribution. That’s only the beginning.

The thing I wanted more than anything was the respect for the ZE:A members. After that disruption, the ZE:A members and CEO Shin Joo Hak were able to meet and find a solution regarding the profit distribution and rights and welfare of the artists. I too believed that everything has been resolved. Also, the immediate public apology tweet wasn’t due to my willingness, but were the strongly reflected details of the company’s stance.

But because of this tweet, speculative misunderstandings became greater about me, and so I reacted to that misunderstanding, becoming more hostile to the public. Feeling that I was alone in this world, I perhaps needed someone I trusted and could tell the truth other than the members and my family.

I wanted to believe that I wasn’t alone, and the only ones that could believe me were the fans and the public. From the ZE:A’s Day fanmeeting with the fans, I think the people who would know already knew. And a few days later, I began my stories on SNS to the public. But the way I talked to the public was poor. So I was advised by the company to halt activities for the time being.

I apologize to all the people who became worried due to all the disturbances that I caused. Because I loved rising to the stage and only looked down the road to becoming a singer from my trainee days until now, I promoted with heart of gratitude to the company and fans that provided the opportunity.

The reason why I’m still enduring it is because of ZE:A’s. I’m sorry and sorry again for making it hard for ZE:A’s. And thank you. I’ll repay this back with good music. Until the day I come back, please continue to cheer on and look after the other eight members like now.

While I think his last few tweets were extra, imagine being him. Imagine your girlfriend and you agree to keep the fact that she wrote the song a secret. Imagine you guys break up and the entire world talks about it. Imagine she moves on in a matter of weeks with a guy she danced with while you two were together. Imagine everyone supports all of her choices and hates you. Imagine a thousand people on Twitter asking you to block them. Imagine everyone taking her side when she was the one who left you. Imagine her team suddenly revealing that she was the one who wrote it as if you had done something wrong by keeping it secret. I’m not saying he should’ve tweeted all of that but just put yourself in his place for a second. I know he made it more public by tweeting about it but that’s his only way of being completely honest about what happened from his perspective. It’s a little unfair because Taylor doesn’t really have the option of tweeting whatever she wants but she does have the option of any article spinning any story her team gives them in her favor.

THIS IS SOOO SAD…THE BOYS DON’T WANT TO DO THIS SPLIT BUT THEY CAN’T DO MUCH WITHOUT A RECORD LABEL SUPPORTING THEM :/ and as much as Nath and Max want to try us to love Scooter I just can’t…I mean I thank him for help the boys to be known worldwide but he was never there for the boys in person (for obvious reasons yeah, he’s a busy person but a tweet or more promotion from the team could had helped a lot more….but who promoted the boys all the time Us THE TWFANMILY)..that’s why I never accepted the fact that Jayne wasn’t the manager anymore…she was, is and will be the best manager of the boys, she put them together, she was in their first school gig and she supported the boys along the way even during this last tour in the UK…she went to some dates and specially to the most emotional one, which was tonight and also Martin was there…they started with such an amazing team, so sad at the end of the day for the artists they can’t do much when they have no record label and they end up breaking up because no one can compete without one. :/

but despite all of that I REALLY HOPE THE BOYS COULD WORK TOGETHER AGAIN SOON….THEY WERE, ARE AND WILL BE SOO IMPORTANT IN MY LIFE AND I THANK THEM FOR ALL THE AMAZING MEMORIES AND GREAT PEOPLE I MET THANKS TO MY FAVES…..LOOOOVE THEM

Alright, so this is what I got from Bitty’s tweets...

9/5 - Fueled by the magic of tub juice, Dex and Nursey hook up. Bitty is both shocked and impressed, clutching his hands to his chest as he drunkenly watches them get sloppy.

9/7 - Bitty attempts to talk to his frogs to piece together how they are doing (like, y’all, Bitty was certain that Dex was straight (granted, Bitty has spent like, the bare minimum of time around Dex bc 1. Bitty has a secret bf; and 2. Dex is constantly fixing shit and studying and chirping Nurse… they are busy boys). Dex is struggling and shuts down Bitty’s attempts at hospitality (”I just don’t get it, Jack… it’s not like I welcomed him to the ‘gay neighborhood’”… “Was there special pie?” “Oh, lord.” “Heh.”) and when he tries to talk to Nursey, Nurse informs him that he already has a mother. Bitty is deeply insulted. 

9/7 continued - Lured out of the basement (fuckin’ dryer) by the sweet sweet smell of pie, Dex sits down and realizes that shit. Even though he loves all the guys at the table, there’s no one that he can really… talk to. Because, he’s maybe a little less confused than he thought he would be, which just… confuses him further, and just… he really misses Shitty. From the gobsmacked looks on everyone’s faces, it’s clear that he said that part out loud. When Nursey comes into the kitchen, he scuttles away back to his dorm room and bites the bullet - and, he skypes Shitty. And immediately hangs up on Shitty when he thanks him for ‘trusting him with the moment’ (”You literally say that to everyone, man, shut the hell up.”). 

SOMETIME BETWEEN 9/7 and 9/10: Dex stops running when Nursey trys to talk to him… and they talk. And then, they talk. A lot. So much, jfc boys, pull up for air… shaaaaaaaaaaaaaaameful…

9/10 continued - At team dinner, Chowder asks if Nursey’s gonna be around to watch this awesome documentary on sharks with him, only to be informed that Nursey’s gonna be busy with ‘some Netflix and chill’. Chowder, sweet precious angel baby that Bitty thinks he is, is thrilled, because he loves Netflix.

9/10 continued… again - Dex makes a complicated face at Nursey over Chowder’s shoulders, and that’s it, Nursey just… fuckin’ starts cackling… and that’s when his Powerade goes spilling all over the place… and his face is just perfect priceless, and Dex can’t stop laughing - snorting and gasping and god - that just sets off Chowder, and they are a mess.

9/10 - But then Nursey shoots a private smile over at Dex… and yeah, Dex isn’t nearly as confused as he thought he would be.

9/16 - Bitty, though easily distracted, is nothing if not persistent, which is why he still tries to make sure that Dex and Nursey know that he’s always available if they need to talk… as long as it’s not during the weekends that he’s away… or in the middle of a Falconers games… or the exact moment a pie needs to come out of the oven… It’s amazing how similar the frogs are in the way they roll their eyes at him, and from the way Dex tells Bitty to chill… oh, lord. Maybe he does “mother” too much…

9/24 - So, it turns out that maybe Bitty was less onto something with Dex and Nursey than he thought… he had hoped that maybe something would come of their drunken hookup (bc Bitty loves them… and also, it was really, really hot to watch), but there they are… chirping and fighting and lord, those boys…

9/24 continued - WELL, NEVERMIND! Bitty will never question his detective skills again, because Dex and Nursey were holDING HAnDS on their way out of Faber and it was sO CUTE!

10/2 - After nearly a full month, Bitty finally gets his validation when Nursey and Dex come to dinner together, leaning into each other’s space, fingers tangled and just… looking like fools in love. Apparently they’re dating, and apparently they’ve been waiting to tell the team in case it exploded before it started… And maybe it’s just Bitty, but as he looks around the table, he comes to realize that it really feels like they’re all starting to date… each other… One in four, maybe more indeed.

Project: #OG3A2Z

It’s been fantastic to see Oliver Queen, Felicity Smoak & John Diggle (aka Original Team Arrow or “OG3″) together again on Arrow, and I was asked about putting together something to show out favorite trio some love & what better time than as Arrow heads into its last two episodes and the season finale?

Starting May 4th, we’ll tackle a different letter of the alphabet to describe our awesome Team Arrow Trio (Oliver Queen/Felicity Smoak/John Diggle). There will be a daily graphic and also some suggested words so you can either use one already set or come up with your own, then share it, along with a brief note of Original Trio Team Arrow love & support.

How?  Easy!  And don’t miss the Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of the post to address any other questions you might have.


What Is #OG3A2Z?

The #OG3A2X Proejct starts May 4th and ends May 29th.  It is a fun, easy-to-do way to show your Original Team Arrow trio (Oliver/Felicity/Diggle) love, excitement & support.  Each day a letter of the alphabet will be posted along with a blank graphic (to be used if you create your own word) and several “suggested word” graphics using that same letter for people to use.

All you have to do for the #OG3A2Z Project is:

1. Use each day’s assigned letter of the Alphabet (example: Day 1′s letter is “A” so A is for Action) that describes the OG3 Team to you.

2. Share A) the word, B) a short message about the OG3 team incorporating that word, and C) that day’s assigned letter graphic on all your social media accounts (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, etc) using both: #OG3A2Z #Arrow

Example:

NOTE: If you create your own word, use the generic/no word graphic (will contain the letter only) to your tweets/posts that looks like this:


3. Tweet your daily #OG3TeamArrow word/message/graphic to:

@CW_Arrow

@ARROWwriters

@MGuggenheim

@GBerlanti

@WarnerBrosTV

@amellywood

@EmilyBett

@David_Ramsey 


NOTE: Not on Twitter? Be sure to tag the official Arrow CW accounts that exist on that social media platform.  For example, the CW has a Tumblr account, Instagram, Facebook, etc., as do Stephen, Emily, and David, so be sure to tag them on it.  Need more than one tweet to tag everybody in?  That’s okay!  Use as many as you need to, just be sure to send to that core list.

This is a global project, so no matter where you are… if you love the Original Trio Team Arrow?  This is a project for you!
