You know I’m a Super Junior fan when the iPhone is filled with their songs / videos. And the frequent entries on them. Sorry but I do not mean to flood your (RSS) timeline with their news 😀
Have heard about the freak accident 4 of the members (and 2 of their managers), and read about how Kyuhyun felt about it in a recent telecast. But had never went to find out what exactly happened, until I clicked on the last video in this blogpost. And then lots of thoughts came to my mind.
Possibly due to the recent craze over them, the daily dosage(s) of watching their weekly performances and the on-loop playlist of all their albums the entire day, that there’s a sense of 亲切感 (closeness) with them. Feels like they’re your brothers and it hurts when any of them gets injured. Any of you elfs has the same feeling too?
One reason why I love them, is their 执著-ness about life, and the close-knitted bond among them. How Kyuhyun fought hard to stay alive, how all of them continued to perform to the best of their ability. This group seems to be accident prone, somehow. I haven’t done any research, but I remembered my sis telling me other members got into (other) accidents too. Like Heechul, who got into an accident while on his way to visit another member (whom I can’t remember who now)’s dad who was in hospital. The accidents may have impacted some of them, but the close-knitted group continued to stay together and give their best performances.
Now that I think of it, life is really fragile isn’t it? You really can’t predict what will happen, you can’t prevent accidents from happening (you can control yourself but you can’t control others). But what’s more important is treasuring the present, and to embrace whatever things/events that might happen to you.
Knowing how to walk out from past (bad) experiences, is what makes one a stronger person.
And that is the reason why I love them. 🙂
