180209 – Shim Changmin’s 21st Birthday Tribute~ (nobuhana @ youtube)
YAY MAX!! So tomorrow DBSK’s youngest gentleman Choikang Changmin turns 21!! (That is in essence what the title is, for fellow anglophones. As you’d have guessed, I’m learning Korean so must show off abit :D) Changmin, to me, has been an interesting person to observe coz he’s so built and tall but his mannerisms are eternally precious and cute. But then again when denise told me he wrote the lyrics to Evergreen and Love In the Ice I was like….dis donc! ( French for …WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH) Poetic genius mannn….the very reason I’m learning Korean. To be able to capture human experience into those words and delivering them with vocals that wind around your soul, stir your heart and energizes your person. That is the DBSK experience brought to you by the prodigy of Shim Changmin 😀 May he be as willing to share his mind and heart through the music of DBSK in times to come.
I chose to attach the above video from youtube uploaded by contributor nobuhana is because I think it’s such an apt way of showing appreciation for our beloved Max because she acknowledges how human he is and appreciates it. And also because I can’t make my own vid. I’m really a noob when it comes to techie stuff. Maybe ONE day I’ll find to time to learn (check back in 10 years or never haha). I recently read the translated version of the DBSK GQ interviews and I was really…awed by Max’s composure. Stars in his position, you’d expect, to be overwhelmed/whiny about the overexposure/ tired of the lack of privacy, since they have hoards of people stalking them like EVERYWHERE but instead he showed a lot of concern for his fans. Like he said that he really feels sad that people are sacrificing their own time and money for their sake (of course time and money is essential for their success but the thing is he probably didn’t want them to be suffering because of DBSK). Sigh…what a guy 🙂 Perhaps as fans, the best kind of gift we could give to Max or even the other members is a little more space and a lot more respect to go with the hero worship (i wanted to say adoration but that would be too mild a description for what DBSK fans feel probably). Like maybe those Kimpo Airport campers could loosen up and just let the guys transit between countries in peace. I mean, I’m probably in no position to judge since I have never had a stake-out waiting for them since i live so far away (i’d probably be guilty of violating their peace once or twice if I was there but not that often my mum would kill me or my grades would kill me T_T), but come on. Show a little love by staying away? I don’t know, just an opinion, please don’t come hunt me down I have too many essays to do that I’ve procrastinated since the start of the term coz i’ve been watching their vids on youtube 😀
Anyways, may Max shine as bright as ever as one of THE most brilliant Korean stars of our time and times to come. And may he get more rest, more privacy and he doesn’t have to worry about love from fans right 😀 장 민 파 이 팅!!!
BTW, here is a link to another fansite with the GQ Interviews for those interested. Read em and be prepared to fall ever so deeply in love with DBSK again. Enjoy: DBSK GQ Interviews
