No, I can’t understand K-ELF.
Imagine if your dentist wants to get married. If a person thinks “how dare he?” and decides to make a petition to kick the dentist out of his own clinic just because he didn’t hide it properly, bought her presents with the money he got paid with and just told them about the marriage 2 weeks before it, I guess you’ll probably think this person has serious psychiatric problems and needs help. And you’re right.
IDOLS ARE NO DIFFERENT!
Idols are people who work with entertainment and has to put up with the lost of most of their privacy with a smile. They deserve respect. They work, fans pay for it buying albums and concert tickets in order to enjoy the music, shows etc - fans get happy, they get paid, that’s how it is. I’m sorry if it sounds cold, but that’s how it is.
By no means they are selling their lives - Korean industry may even make it seem like it, but it’s not. What they do on stage is their job - you can get upset when they sing out of key or are disrespectful towards the audience, of course, it’s their job - BUT YOU CANNOT GET UPSET BECAUSE OF THEIR LIFE CHOICES, specially when there’s nothing wrong about them.
THEY DO NOT OWE YOU ANYTHING.
Sungmin is doing his job properly - that’s what he offers as an idol from the beginning. I’m sorry if the twisted mind of yours thought you were getting yourself a pet or a boyfriend. That’s not it.
He does respect his fans because he goes to Super Junior activities, he practices the songs and dance moves, he sings well, he threats them with respect and love (and it’s even genuine love - something he is not bound to do) and NEVER ASKS ANYTHING BACK.
He is a grown man in his 30s that found a woman he loves and decided to form a family. As a fan, someone that claims to selfishly love them, it’s expected we feel happy because he’s going towards a path of happiness - forming a family and living a full life. Of course, you can get scared because it’s a completely different moment, Super Junior are not boys any more and we are getting to see and feel it. But new things can also be good. It’s a new phase for them either, they are probably scared too, but they are looking to a brighter future, with a different mind set and fresh ideas - and so should we.
What are K-ELF even thinking when they want to kick him out of the band? Do they know what he is doing is just expected? Do they know the rest of the band are probably going to do it too? Do they know that if he didn’t tell them earlier it’s because he knew they were immature and possessive and he was goddamn scared of his own beloved fans? Do they know that with this mind set they’ll end up kicking out all of the Super Junior members and they are going to be the only ones left? Ever Lasting Friends… Whose Ever Lasting Friends? You don’t have to be happy, you don’t have to love him - but you have no right to decide anything for the band. If you don’t like it, then get out yourself.
