And so I downloaded all their albums, music videos, checked on some basic facts about the members of that band in the internet, watched some highly-recommended videos in youtube. Little did I know, I was already downloading even their guestings, performances, tv shows, cameo appearances – everything.
Got nothing to debate on who will become my most favorite member, actually, because their leader had this appeal on me that I didn’t see on the other four (not to mention his smile is heart melting….) but that doesn’t make me not love the other four almost equal as he is.
Several months after, I’ve completed buying physically all their albums, official photobooks, some concert goods, even completed my favorite member’s photocards… Give it more than a year and I’m already going out of the country watching their concerts… Pretty much crazy, right? Yeah, but maybe that’s just one of my weird ways to show how much I love them and how far I would go for them.
There have been ups and downs in this fandom. More annoying co-fans to deal with because, admit it or not, there will always be those people who just won’t be in the similar vibe as you; issues, yeah, ISSUES about each member – some are true some are not, but well, this is entertainment industry; the possible lovelife *coughs coughs* of any one of them (not like I want them to die alone, its just that I prefer certain type of girls esp. with my fave member); conflicts of opinion with other people… But there is no such thing as perfect in this world, right? Still… There were a lot of happy times during the three years I’ve been in this fandom, meeting new sets of friends would probably be one of the best.
IT HAS BEEN THREE YEARS…
I maybe skeptic or pessimistic or whatever you can call it, but I know, deep inside my heart, the group would not last forever. There is no such thing as forever anyway. They may someday decide to have a life outside from limelight, out on their own, but I will be here supporting them in every way I can. Maybe not as equally extravagant as the coming years, or not as loud probably as how I am supporting them now, but as long as I am able to, as long as I can, I WILL.
See you still on my 4th year in SHINee World ^^
