On thoughts of idol groups disbanding...

It has never occurred to me that this thing with Infinite right now, will happen to me - to us Inspirits. I was so sure that their bond as friends and brothers are so strong that they will be continuing their activities for as long as time itself. 

Then here comes the 7 year contract renewal, It was due last June and August is almost over already, but there is still no news about our 7 Romeos. I am used to waiting, I've waited for teasers, comeback schedules, for dvd releases, for shipment of goods... But this kind of waiting is such an agony. Especially when you are not prepared for it. Just seeing their posts in social network would hype up my feelings and I would think yes there is a positive result.. and then the waiting game begins again. 

I have come to love another group in March, so the lack of activity for Infinite was a bit compensated for my being busy with Highlight. Now I was again into another group (saw them in a concert here in PH) and even if I am so into Him Chan (BAP), I still remember Gyu and Infinite ever now and then. 

When I watched Infinite Rally 3 this weekend I even cry at the slightest "touching" words said or gestures. I thought what if I haven't been watching shows of Highlight or B.A.P, what if i was only an Inspirit and this thing happened... would I be so devastated?

Contract Issues and Disbandment, words that never crossed my mind that could happen to my favorite groups... well it is happening now for Infinite and then there's B.A.P - the thought of my bias groups' members will go separate ways scares the hell out of me. It bothers me now, that word - disband. There is hope though, they call pull off something like what Highlight did, but that probably is at least 2 years worth of careful thought and firm decision making.

The truth is, I am scared to lose the groups i love most, I am scared not to see them together, I am scared not to see them perform - I say they want to perform, they love each other, they love their fans, and so on.. but Do I really know what they want? Do I really know what's going on in their minds? 

I have invested so much time following their activities, saving their photos, watching their shows, buying their albums and merchandise, voting to give them a win, streaming their songs, and many other things I never thought I would do in my entire life. I have (admittedly) given them so much of my time (and life) and basically made them part of my routine... I am probably not scared for their livelihood, for their fame lost, for their life... for their dreams... 

I am actually just scared for myself. I am scared of how my life will be when I can no longer see them together, when I can no longer spend an hour or two browsing and checking for updates about them.. what will I be excited about? What will I look forward to? I have made them a part of me so much so that If they cease to exist, My life will be so empty. 

Fansite Calendar - 2017 Preview - Sung Kyu (Infinite)


Sharing the Calendar / Season's Greetings from Fansites. I got two different sets from two different fansites. Calendar Supports can be very expensive, really because it has a lot of inclusions (mostly).

So there's the calendar, some stickers, photocards, and postcards among others. 



  















See, the photos from the Calendar is really nice! You get a full pager, then a quarter of your bias' photo.  Sung Gyu's Birthday also has this cute icon of him =) Other important and related (Infinite anniversary, Member Birthdays are marked as well.




The other one I got with the calendar is a diary. Its included so it became a bit more costly than the others, and well It was beautiful, and of good quality so I am not complaining. The Fansite also threw in a lot of free stickers with the support so I'm pretty much happy about it. =) 











Sample Stickers you can use for the diary to mark important dates are here, mostly it coincides with the type of concept the support has. :D 






Fansite Slogans - Sung Gyu (Infinite) Collection


Infinite - Sung Kyu Fansite Slogans (2016)

I haven't even been to an Infinite Concert. But I got all these slogans of my bias and well, If I could, I would probably even collect more. Its just so addicting. Seeing the previews, collecting each copy and just well, staring at them kind of give you a different feeling too. =) 


These Photo slogans often come in a SET, sometimes Fans, Photobooks, or photocards, stickers. There are options to get full set which can be as high as Php4000. and There are also just Fans or Slogans that can be around Php 1000. I often get Fan + Slogan because the Fans are cute too! :D 



MTK or More than kyu set was fairly cheap. a number of people i follow bought this one and, the set comes with this cute photocard set of Gyu jumping around everland! So yeah Its a must have. 



Ah the Turningpoint Set (was for a Bday support, i think) and well i think I availed of this one because the fan that comes with this set was another of my favorite Sung Gyu pic taken when he was about to go inside MBC for the Weekly idol taping. Yep. He was stunning so.. again I just have to get that fan for myself. =P 



Douerky Set, I got this because this set was Gyu in Suit. hehe :D the Photobook was full of his photos in a formal Suit - yeah he looked really handsome in there. Plus!!!! The slogan was one of the few that have Gyu's latest pic as he was doing the Elvis (All Shook Up Musical). so.. why not?!  



Need I say more? I just have to get this one too coz Gyu was gonna throw a kiss in this phot, and its well, almost a full body slogan. =)

PRELUDE TO GIFS AND MINI CLIP COLLECTION (KPOP ONLY)

For every videos released, there would be tons of GIFS you'd see posted, especially if you follow a lot of fans too. I especially enjoy them (but don't misunderstand an HD photo shared is just as wonderful) but then GIFS are mostly cute, and very alive too! :D

HIGHLIGHT has come(back)!!!

Highlight's name must be new to everyone in KPOP... They were called Beast before but Cube did not settle nor allow them to have the name as they separated from the said agency last year (2016). Highlight, composed of members Yoon Doo-joon, Yong Jun-hyung, Yang Yo-seob, Lee Gi-kwang, and Son Dong-woon is set out for this new beginning with a release of a new Album. 

Kudos to AroundUs Ent, because for a new company they sure did a great job with the promotions. Imagine we all get a teaser (almost) everyday. I have followed other kpop idols too and there was always a gap in the activities or releases(usually). 



Today (March 20) they release their title track and will be performing their self composed song. Just last March 13, they already gave us a preview of how wonderful this new album will be, and it has gotten every Beauties/Fans out their crying their heart out. It was really meaningful, actually... Knowing that something that has ended, something that you know is over... something that was painful can still be beautiful. Ah.. go watch the video yourself and be the judge. 

Highlight - Its Still Beautiful (Can You Feel It) 





Also two days ago, we also had the teaser for the Title Track "Dont Frown". It was so nice! The concept was far from the EP they released just days before. :D I love this one too, and the dance would be so lit! I am sure even Non fans would enjoy and even dance to the beat. Funny though that the boys were actually wearing the Robe they used in Weekly Idol - where everyone thought was with the production of some sort. So it was really part of the video.


The Concept Photos released also gave out a very upbeat tone, with the colors you know how connected the videos are to the teasers, and even the album covers. 






So, You still haven't decided yet? Well I would still like to give you a couple more photos of Highlight Members. There are two versions so pick your choice. ;) I'd say get both, though! You'd be sure to get different sets of photos for each version anyway so why stress yourself out to think on which one to get? :) 


PS: Look at my Wooniverse, Dong Woon!! He is so freaking hot in this photo. This Solo photo of him sealed the deal between me and Highlight. haha (¬‿¬) He is just so beautiful himself that I just could not hold it in anymore. I thought's I could never stan someone like I did Infinite, But Highlight is just too wonderful to forgo.
