Well, frankly speaking I got so upset and angry when I saw this photo in this morning.
I couldn't understand what they want to show through that kind of concept.
'OMG. Is it a drag queen or transgender? What the! Hey B2M! I've been waiting for his solo comeback such a long time. But why you guys do this to my boy and me? It's too unconventional. T.T.'
But I've changed my mind after receiving the mail from etet.
I'd like to share her opinion with you. I totally agree with her.
She also left her message on liezle's blog too. Some of you might've read it already.
I'm eager to write so many things that I want to say but it's really hard due to language barrier. Anyway, my point of view about his new concept became optimistic.
At least it succeeded to bring people pay attention to him.
Besides, I read the interview article of Kyu Jong in National Theater YONG Magazine Autumn Edition. That interview said, Kyu Jong has been writting in Prince Shin's diary everyday to be immersed in Prince Shin's character since he was cast for musical Goong. I was moved by what he's been doing for his role.
Yes. That is Kyu Jong who we know.
규종아. 누나가 아침에 잠시 이 사진을 보고 매우 분노했었지만 파격적이고 쇼킹한 사진이라
오히려 많은 이들의 시선을 잡아 끌 수 있었던 것 같아.
네가 무엇을 하건 어떤 모습을 보여주건 내가 처음 보고 반했던 착하고 성실하고 노력하는
인간 김규종 그 자체는 절대로 변하지 않는 진리라는걸 다시 한 번 생각하게 됐어.
갈대같은 누나의 순정을 채찍질 해다오. ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Here is Etet's opinion.
The first words out of my mouth were “What the Hell!?!?” And excuse my language but the word "shit" was also heard... I am not a fan of the pics and had to take some deep breaths as I started to read the reaction this has caused. But after the initial “shock” wore down I was able to think straight again.
In my eyes, Kyu is taking a HUGE risk. Which I now realize is what really “shocked” me… Not JM, Not Leader… The sensible Kyu… And looking back, the others sort of stayed in their comfort zone with what they have done… YS did venture out a little but he didn’t go too far… So why Kyu? And why so dramatically? Is it because he has found the courage or confidence to stretch his limits? If that’s the case I applaud him.
Don’t we all “buck the system”? Strike out on our own to explore, to learn, to make mistakes, to move forward, to grow? And when we do this, we realize that we won’t please everyone but isn’t that the point? If we did what everyone wanted wouldn’t the world be rather boring?
In the next few days, there will be comments, both negative and positive. But we need to resist the urge to become angry or sad. I have asked a lot of questions but only Kyu can answer them. Speaking for myself, I’m looking forward to see what happens. Whether this “risk” will be a costly one or a big hit is an unknown. Of course I am hoping it will be a big hit. But it doesn’t change who Kyu is… Kyu will always be Kyu. You can’t change the “core” of a person… and that’s the person who has turned this ajumma into a “Fan Girl”… A "Fan Girl" for how long? I can't say... The future is what it will be.. but for now, I'm happy to be one of Kyu's Kyuties... So I anxiously wait to see his MV, the release of his CD, his comeback stage, his new drama and of course his musical...
What will be will be... All we can do is patiently wait and trust... Isn't that what he would want of us?
