I guess I am really sad reading such feelings about wishing Homin or JYJ to do better than the other. It’s not disappointment or anger…just sadness.
And really, we can’t make everyone, old fans or new fans be supportive of both sides…and I am still trying to get used to this.
I’ve heard this question: how can it be possible to support both sides? In a small voice I always want to ask, but why must we pick sides at all? (And I have read eloquent, reasonable answers but to me it still does not settle comfortably.)
I have also read that “ot5 fans” are the delusional or blindly following ones. I will say that I do read all the articles posted, all the opinions, all the updates and consider them carefully too. And maybe to some it’s too conflicting to give understanding to both Jaesuchun and Homin.
Tragically, we can’t even test that option (supporting both) with the state of our fandom. We’ll never know what happens if we do support both sides.
I do not mean to put the people who have chosen sides down. It’s become enough for me to know that all 5 will be supported even if by two different camps.
But what if we had been able to support all 5 from the start? How beautiful would that be?
