~ Especially for catcher and Yuki ~
I always know this: I’m a magnet for YongSeo fans, for obvious or not-so-obvious reasons. I won’t use the term ‘shipper’, for I’m not so sure about how most people see the term. A fan is a person who enjoys watching and talking about a certain thing a lot. Can we agree on this?
I really mean I’m nobody, but why do I think there may be people reading this or I think I need to speak to people who ‘recently knows me’? This blog suddenly becomes popular (popular compared to pre-Heartstrings era, I mean … not really popular); I’m a little afraid actually. And suddenly I have 1100+ followers on twitter. Last time I checked, it’s about 600.
I have fun talking to catcher here lately. My gut feeling told me she’s a YongSeo fan. Her commenting on my ‘dislike of the other camp’ makes me realize maybe I should clarify something. I never hate the YongSeo couple; I just don’t want the show to last too long. I stated my point of view on this matter in February, 2011. It’s a reply to a friend’s blog post. My position hasn’t changed and I really meant what I said. I’m sorry if I offend Seo Hyun’s fans using ‘the girl’ instead of her name. I don’t mean I dislike her; like what I said, I don’t know her at all. Maybe somebody who talks about Yonghwa saying ‘the boy’ will offend me? I don’t know.
And I talked with a couple of regulars here in a Shinwoo post about this matter. Read the post as well as the comments if you care to know what exactly I think.
Honestly, I feel very uncomfortable to be seen as an enemy to certain YongSeo fans as a result of my comments about WGM. Please understand I don’t mean all YongSeo fans. What I thought about a show offended certain fans to the extent that I received twitter mentions with rude words? I feel particularly frustrated when it comes to posting on the soompi CNBLUE thread, somebody (I don’t know if there’s just one person with multiple accounts) gives me minuses whenever and whatever I post, up till yesterday. You’ll say I don’t have better things to do than checking the pluses and minuses. But it’s just too obvious sometimes, taking into consideration that I usually visit the thread at least 3 times a day.
I actually posted (in mid March) on the soompi CNBLUE thread welcoming YongSeo fans, inviting them to know Yonghwa more as a part of CNBLUE and gave them links to benchmark pages of the thread. Some soompier was actually shocked to know that I actually watched WGM. Can I take it that some people don’t know enough about things?
PS Maybe this post should be titled: Why am I afraid to talk about WGM?
PPS You’re free to comment, but not so free as to start a war, between you and me or among each other. I hope I won’t regret making this post.
Edit: Closed for comments. I’ve moved on. Hope you have too.
