Yonghwa/CNBLUE news pic of the Nov 12 Sydney Kpop music festival performance. (source: tvdaily.co.kr)
Thanks to aussie fans who share fancams, I can tell CNBLUE’s passionate performance was as great as ever. And not to mention the Chinese fans share tons of pics and videos of CNBLUE at the Korea China Music Festival. I had a blast looking, staring, and gazing at Yonghwa and the other CN boys these few days … am still collecting pics and videos till today.
Back to my post title. There’s a Taiwan movie shown on theaters here lately. 那些年，我們一起追的女孩 (English title: You Are The Apple OF My Eye | Official MV | Wikipedia). It’s a big hit. All people I know, from elementary school kids to papas and mamas of teenagers are talking about it. I haven’t watched it yet, for I just finished reading the novel which the movie is based on. I think I totally look like a crazy fan, I’m linking irrelevant things to my Yonghwa/CNBLUE fandom. You read my blog, so I assume you don’t find me too crazy or are as crazy as me. The long story short (it’s semi-autobiography): the boy had liked the girl since middle school, for a whole eight years. He did crazy things for the girl but avoided telling her directly that he liked her. Something the boy said near the end of the story impressed me most. He wondered if he really liked the girl that much, or it’s the feeling of liking the girl that he liked more. Sometimes I wonder about my “love” for Yonghwa/CNBLUE too. That movie/book’s Chinese title actually means: those years, when we chase the same girl. The girl whom the boy liked was liked by many boys. Though the book doesn’t exactly describe how lovely the girl is, judging from the things that the boys were willing to do for her, I can totally see she’s a girl worth chasing. Are Yonghwa and the other three boys liked by a lot of people? Yes, or no. It depends on how you look at it. The boy in the story had to compete with a lot of other boys for the girl’s love, but I don’t have to compete with anybody in this fandom. I think there’s no win or lose in any fandom, though some people (I hope there aren’t many but I can’t care too much) mock our community as being small and weak. Liking Yonghwa or liking the feeling of liking Yonghwa, I have explained much here. This blog of course can’t be compared to a good novel. Like the author, I feel like writing down my thoughts on this “love”, because it’s something worth talking about and it’s a story about friendship too. The boy and his love rivals became good friends while I made friends because of this fandom too. I should stop making loose comparison, or this post will become too random.
PS Yonghwa’s hair looks almost yellow in the pic. Just the lighting. Luckily. *wink* to someone.
