This expression and stance of HyukJae’s is probably the best representation of the past weekend. Truly. It was a REALLY BAD weekend to be a HyukJae fangirl. I had so much to say that I ended up not knowing what to say (and am still in a mess over how to say what I want to say) such that I just spent all my time after the broadcast ended watching and re-watching the group date in its entirety over and over again. And each time I would end up screaming at him through the latter half of the broadcast. But ah well. The pitfalls of being a fan. You shriek at him in pique and ire when he is making an absolute ass out of himself but still love him after the sound of that last scream of frustration has faded away. Such is the irrationality of it all. Thankfully the whole hullabaloo has since died down and no, fangirl-ism was not what I wanted to talk about.
My initial thought over the Fighting Junior group date was that it would run along the lines of that which Ssangchu had between SS501 and the Wonder Girls, ie everybody sits to share a meal, exchange a bit of information about themselves and their interests, play a few games. Same sort of a thing, just a little (??) rowdier coz it is, after all, a group date involving SuJu boys. And it pretty much turned out that way, just that I did not expect them to make it into an entire variety within a variety, complete with a show title, slogan, etc. Which, to my mind, was where the whole problem lay coz that took away the reality aspect of the programme and made it fully into a variety.
