So today (yesterday in Korea—the 17th) is VIXX’s 1000th day since their debut. Congratulations!!! I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for them. I wasn’t a fan from day one, but I did know them since 2012. Looking back I don’t entirely understand how I didn’t fall for them at first sight. In some ways it may be better that I fell for them later because they had already matured and gotten into some darker concepts than the first two. Although it does make me regret not fully appreciating the first time I got to see them live.
Honestly I’ve had some weird luck with them. I got to see them perform live twice, but I missed seeing them up close and going to their showcase and concerts. I can only believe that I’m building up karma/points/whatever you want to call it so that when.I finally do get to meet them, it will all have been worth it. That’s what I choose to believe lest I fall into despair.
I really love VIXX and I think they’re amazing and underrated. I suppose most everyone thinks their favorite group is underrated (if they’re not from one of the Big 3), but I’m going to say it anyway. The six members of VIXX are so dedicated, genuine, hardworking, lovely, funny, tall, and the list goes on. I hope that all their efforts bring them even more recognition from a wider audience (although it is a little cool feeling exclusive as a Starlight).
I don’t have any tragic story about me giving up on everything and VIXX saving me from myself, but they’ve become an integral part of my life. I feel like they and their music support me in little ways everyday. I almost wonder if that’s more beautiful than some giant life change. I like the idea of a gentle, constant, loving presence as opposed to a fast-burning, intense one, which isn’t to say that my feelings are not intense!
I’m a little surprised by how much I wrote because I don’t usually write much in general. I feel like I haven’t even adequately described how precious VIXX is, but I think the general idea is there. I’m so excited for the upcoming comeback! Congrats once again for 1000 days!!! Soon it will be 3 years, and before we know it it will be 10,000 days! Good luck, fighting, and I love you!
