The End (And) of an Era

The night of 4 December 2011 is a sad one because tonight marks the first time that I got to watch TVXQ ‘live’ but it was a shrunken 2 out of 5. It is doubly sad that tonight is also the last time that my 1 and 2 are hosting ‘Sukira’.

5 years and 3 months. That is how long it has been. To be honest, somewhere at the back of all of our heads, we knew that it was only a matter of time before HyukJae and Teukie had to pass the hosting baton on to someone else mainly because of mandatory military service. But when the news broke, it was still heartbreaking.

I missed tuning into a ‘live’ stream of their final broadcast tonight because of TVXQ and was planning on grabbing a recording when I got home. But after learning off RyeoWook’s tweet that HyukJae cried, I don’t think I will do that. Not so soon anyway. I don’t think I will be able to bear seeing/hearing HyukJae cry over leaving ‘Sukira’.

Like HyukJae, I am finding this whole thing very surreal. It is a little hard to believe that the next time I tune in or even read about ‘Sukira’, both he and Teukie will not be the ones that I hear or see, and my head has yet to get around to the fact that this arrangement will be a permanent one.

SungMin and RyeoWook will be taking over fully from now and imo, they have an extremely large pair of shoes to fill. But I have faith that they will do just fine. As Teukie said, this is not an ‘end’ but ‘and’. I wish MinWook all the best and will continue to support ‘Sukira’. But for now, here are some screencaps of the ‘Sukira’ iPhone app while it still features EunTeuk in it.
