this world is good enough to play in, right?
7jib - Donghae’s Thanks To Message:
Dear Father/ Last time I saw you was around 2006 8/8 Tuesday 3AM, but it’s already 2014 8/21 Thursday. A lot of time has passed, right? ^^ Like the time that’s passed, the environment around, many people, thoughts, and appearance has changed a lot. Some changed for the better, some not. But I am always working hard so that my core that I am holding on, does not change a lot. Because you, father, are in that core too. You’d be disappointed if I changed to (not good/bad), so I am working hard to (not change) ^^ then you can compliment me when I meet you again. I’m still young, and I’m still the son that wants to receive compliments from father. But it’s been a really long time since I’ve been unable to hear those compliments. Soon, I will perform 100th concert performance; It would have been nice if father could have watched at least one of those 100 performances. It’s sad. I’m really thankful to be able to do a job that I love, be loved while doing that job, that there are people who cry, laugh, and be happy because of me-though, what am I (for them to feel that way for me)-, and that there are people who have dreams while watching me. I’m very thankful that those people exist, and I am thankful about everything, that I can feel that I am living a life that I am more thankful of. Complains, not being satisfied, being lazy… Looking back now, I can see that everything- even things that I didn’t feel good about- are thankful things. What I am most thankful about is that I am your son. It’s a letter to you after a long time. 2014 8/21 Thursday 7:04PM, after 2 years… Let’s talk again when another album comes out in future ^^ I love you, dad.
Dear Mom, Hyung, HyunGyum / Mom, don’t get sick. When you are sick, I feel even more hurt. There are many things I wasn’t able to feel when I wasn’t able to live with you when I was young, and now, living together, I feel them. I feel thankful from small things like being able to be together, being able to see you, and being able to touch you. When you look at me and smile, when you- who looked big when I was young- now look smaller than me, when you- who walked really fast- walk slower than me, and when I felt that you- who looked strong and powerful- have become weaker than me, and is depending on me, tears come to my eyes. Just don’t get sick. I love you mom^^
Beloved hyung, you are very tired, exhausted, and bored these days right? But I am happy and full of energy because of hyung. I think a lot about how I can do more for you, hyung. It’s not that I just want to give you something; it’s more like.. I’m thankful that I have a brother, and thankful that I can share with hyung. I hope hyung enjoys it a bit more, and I hope that you will be happy. I also hope that we brothers would rely on each other more. I love you, hyung. HyunGyum-ah, hyung is proud and happy that you have a dream at such a young age. I hope you will work harder, and if you don’t want to get hit, listen to hyung more! hehe. Listen to mom, and sleep early.
Dear SJ/ There really is no need for words!! I like that we are together, I’m happy that we are together, and I’m thankful that whenever I feel tired and look back, you’re standing there by my side without a word^^ There’s no need for anything else, let’s just do well just among ourselves^^ Suju is the best hehe. Leader Teuk-ee hyung… I will trust hyung and go! and Yesung-ee hyung… If hyung were with us, we would have shined more.
