I am dismayed by the possibility that the release of CNBlue’s mini album will go head-to-head with that girl group again. And just as no one can stop delusionals from my Korean side of fangirling from making their own wild speculations, no one can stop me from saying this. Because… I can’t stop!
So in anticipation of all the delusions that will surely spread:
delusion #1: They release their albums at the same time so they can have an excuse to appear in shows together.
Uh, operative word: excuse. No need for an excuse if two people are really together in real life.
delusion #2: In case they do find themselves in the same show – They stood side by side! They looked at each other! They smiled at each other! They talked! They interacted!
Do you realize how pathetic all of the above sound?
Oh, and it’s called television. Also, it’s known as blocking. Hello, floor director-nim? It’s a show. There’s a script but what can one expect from a fandom borne out of a scripted show? (Oh don’t tell me that it was spontaneous and unscripted. PLEASE.) Haven’t heard of fan service before? If that can even be considered as fan service (I’m basing this on previous actual show interactions).
delusion #3: In case they do find themselves in the same show but nothing happened – They have something to hide, it’s obvious! That’s why they’re awkward! They’re protecting their relationship!
Common sense will tell you that if a pairing has a wide, rabid following, the two people in that pair would be more open and forthcoming… if they are real. If they have rabid delusionals like you as supporters who will spam any story or video to defend your theories and fight for them, do you think they will “hide”?
delusion #4: He wrote all those songs for her!
Get over it.
It’s a pity that CNBlue’s music is recognized because of connections that are otherwise imagined unless the songwriter himself confirms it.
While that reality/virtual marriage SHOW did bring them a lot of fans, it’s a curse because these fans are not really interested in the band’s music. They’re just interested in crooning to their delusions that this song and that song is for “her”.
I saw this photo below on tumblr and it really encapsulates my annoyance at how rabid some shippers are. I guess it’s my karma for being a super shipper before. Now I realize how annoying I must have been. This must be my punishment, being surrounded by rabid delusionals from both my Japanese and Korean fandoms.
Okay, I just needed to get that out of my system.
Just one last thing (can’t promise it’s the last though because delusionals are part of life just like toxic waste is): no member of any idol group (or even individual artists for that matter) has the power to decide when to release their work or what kind of work will even be released. Brutal as this may sound, they are simply foot soldiers in the big entertainment world business. So chuck those “coincidences”. It’s called economictainment or enternomics, whichever you prefer.
Let’s take it from CNBlue’s leader-nim: it’s all about the music.
