As you may have noticed, I've changed the layout of my LJ. Although not very active, I'm still around. Two jobs and a very demanding RL are taking up a lot of my time. Let me state this: I did not fell out of love with Kisumai. The old layout dated from 2009, when I was in full support of the debut of these dorks. They made it and I'm so happy all the members seems to have establised a steady fanbase and projects. I still love the old blue costumes; the ones that made me notice them. I'm listening/watching Kis-My-Journey Concert Tour Right now. Still supporting and following KAT-TUN, Akanishi Jin, NEWS, ABC-Z and Yamapi too. My love for Kato Kazuki didn't die down either. Supporting him from his Tenimyu days on.
After frantically staying away from K-pop, I got sucked in. But I decided to stick to one group only, because the voice of EXO-M main vocal Chen/Kim Jongdae struck right into my heart like a thunderbolt. Mostly M-biased and yeah I seem to have a thing for groups loosing members for various reasons (Kisumai 8>7, NEWS 9>6>4, KAT-TUN 6>5>4 and EXO 12>11>10). But out of sight is not out my heart. For myself I treasure all of their music, made and sung in whatever version. I've learned that the remaining members can still make the magic work from prior heartbreaking experiences. Yes it might be different, but if your in full support they still know how to reach you. So I've decided on a banner with Luhan and Chen, because the combination of their voices are still precious to me. And I hope Chen/Kim Jongdae will receive worldwide recognition for his vocal abilities. I've kept the lyrics of Stigmatized by The Calling in my banner. Funny fact: in Japan Kisumai, Kato Kazuki an EXO are label mates under AVEX.
Now I need time to update all of my icons, since they're all pretty outdated. I still need time to catch up on drama. And I still need to finish a report *facepalms*
Take care, love and hugs,
