Clichés

…but the concert was really unforgettable. And this is my fave photo I took:

Just looked up the lyrics to this song, and…whoa. I didn’t expect it to be this pretty. I feel like I’m doing this weird betrayal thing where I know I’m not supposed to like Super Junior’s music, but the pull is too great. And I want to laugh it off nervously and scream “Guilty pleasure!” but a friend once said that life’s too short for people to feel guilty about the things they like, so eff that. I love this song and I don’t care who knows it! (Koreans sure do amazingly with their angst and woe and emotional UNDYINGSARANG, don’t they?)
