So the other day I was thinking about my blog and realized that I haven’t posted about Key in a while. I feel guilty because I know that there are
a bunch of crazy fangirls some of you out there who subscribed to receive updates about Key, and to put it bluntly it would kind of suck to subscribe to a blog wanting a specific and not obtaining that specific thing. Even if it that thing is a super sexy K-Pop idol.
I proceeded to brainstorm Key-related things to blog about – but then I stopped myself. When did I ever have to think before blogging about Key? All of my fanboying posts in the past have been spur of the moment, “oh my gosh he’s so hot” type posts. The fact that I had to force myself to come up with something to say about Key discomforted me and caused me to feel slightly strange, to be honest.
It’s not like I’m not a fan of Key anymore. It’s just that I’m not as obsessed with him as I once was. Maybe it’s due to the dearth of new songs or music videos from SHINee (December 7th, woo!), a lack of nailed-by-Key girl-group dances, or maybe the one-sided relationship I’ve always had with him has transformed into more of a
friends with benefits just friends type thing.
I also experienced an epiphany that revealed to me that I’m truly a fair weather fan of Key and K-Pop overall. When Key and SHINee release a new music video or do something spectacular I’ll fanboy and possibly post about it, but when they’re just performing concerts and doing small stuff I’ll write about other things. It’s similar to the structure of the average K-Pop follower – when a group makes a comeback we all go crazy over them for a while, then they slowly fade into the background, and another group makes a comeback and we go crazy over them, then they die down a bit, etc.
I’d like to end this mini-update/ general notice/ whatever you want to call it by saying that Key is still attractive. And that Jongkey still lives. And always will.
