What’s the definition of ‘fan’?
According to the Oxford online dictionary: …a person who has a strong interest in or admiration for a particular sport, art form, or famous person…
I have a strong interest in and admiration for Yonghwa of CNBLUE: that’s why I titled this blog ‘Just a fan’.
That’s how it began. I had this addiction of making animated gifs. Fellow fans asked me what software I used and so on. When I noticed that I kept sending them the same twitlonger post I used to explain things, I thought I had blogging materials. But of course I don’t know a lot that fellow fans don’t know and I don’t have a lot of good stuff that fellow fans don’t have. Everything is just random …
I didn’t expect a lot of readers in the first place. And I don’t take the blog stats very seriously. The clicks may not mean anything. Maybe you just click but don’t read or the worse thing is you scan the posts with a smirk. Still, seeing a few re-tweets of my tweeting the post links and getting a few replies here as well as on twitter has me encouraged. Of course I’m not proud of my writing or my having good stuff to share. Everything is still just about spreading Yonghwa/CNBLUE love.
The last couple of posts have something to do with counting days. Looking back at my days as a fan, I have changed. I must say I don’t feel that I need to be very anxious if the latest news or pics are spread around, mainly because I see a lot of people doing exactly that. But my love for CNBLUE and Yonghwa has only grown even more.
Sometimes I ask myself why I spend so much time on this fandom. But I have found the answer.
Life is too short to do only what we have to do; it’s barely long enough to do what we want to do.

To end this post, I post this gif that I made scanning the latest episode of NAN.
PS I still love making Yonghwa gifs.
