nope I wish i was there since the beginning but i recently got into kpop a year ago thanks to LTMs_Sammi my bestie. I started with bts, found other groups for a bit my ults was stray kids and then one day looking for new music i found Ateez and although I still listen to 37 boy groups lol and still enjoy Stray Kids music, i pretty much drop everything for Ateez. They are the only group i literally try to collect merch for, I have all their albums, everything, well and E'last too...i love E'lasts music been with THEM since Debut and found how just how hugeeeee of ateez fans they are and i just love them so much. I believe Atiny's adopted them, we all support them when they do things lol.
But I am pretty sure Mingi does feel like this there's an old interview when mingi was either sick/injured and he broke down because he couldn't do anything with the group and he felt horrible and like he let everyone down and he just cried he couldnt speak and was apologizing and San said "mingi cry, it's okay" and i just broke down. Like most groups do shit for cameras, do that fan service shit, and people can believe what they want, but i don't see it in Ateez of all the groups i watch all the shit i see, even when I had Stray Kids as an ult they don't fake their shit. They don't care about cameras. They do whatever they want. They love and enjoy what they do and it shows. I know that Bang Chan spoils things for Stays and likes to make them happy and doesn't care about shit either, and lately i haven't followed them as much but you can just tell when some groups seem fake or seem to fake their relationships.
I don't know i'm probably getting repetitive. I'm both excited, confused, worried, and concerned all at the same time. I didn't think they'd have a comeback this early with Imitation coming out (the drama), the Ateez Holdings, Kingdom, and all the new Universe stuff going on. I really pray they are getting rest. They are doing so much at the same time. They don't need to prove themselves to anyone. They aren't rookies anymore and they won their first Bonsang...They don't need to work as hard as they have been.
Oh it doesn't matter for how long you've been a fan, it's nice to hear they helped you to get better!
Oh woow, you can handle a lot of groups! I think i know about E'last only because i've seen clips of them being Ateez fans
Oh yeah, Mingi seems to be such quite sensitive and worries about a lot of things probably. I can relate, but being in such industry can only make it worse, so it works out better for people that don't care that much.
Noo it's alright, i can feel your excitement, you really admire them and it's nice they make you feel happy! This is the purpuse of the entertainment industry, to to uplift us and makes us forget about some worries we have for a moment
For Ateez it's not about proving themselves, but with Kingdom they will get bigger exposure and more people will check them out. But I was surprised when they announced comeback because at the time of the comeback they will probably be filming for Kingdom and that will be sooo tiring altogether, i hope they are going to endure it well.
