You know what saddens and disappoints me? When people say how saddened and disappointed they are in kpop idols (GD, T.O.P, Micky, Yunho, etc.) for smoking.
Your oppas are amazing people. They make beautiful music for you to enjoy. They devote nearly every waking second of the best years of their lives to bring you happiness. They don’t sleep enough. In many cases, they don’t eat enough. They’re constantly traveling. They can’t breathe fresh air without being photographed doing it. GOD FORBID the stress of this lifestyle drives them to smoke a cigarette.
GUESS WHAT. Your oppas are human beings. They don’t owe you perfection. Smoking does not make them weak. It does not diminish their achievements. Albert Einstein smoked. President Obama smoked. The Beatles smoked. I shouldn’t have to justify it like this — millions of people smoke. A lot of your parents smoke. Do you love them less because of it? If you do, that’s sad as hell.
The sooner you grow up and realize that your precious oppas are actually real human beings and thus entitled to make personal choices and decisions about their lives that DO NOT CONCERN YOU AND YOUR BUTTHURT FEELINGS, the happier your lives will be. Until then, you are living in a fantasy world.
SECRET!BECAUSE: I don’t want to have to pretend to listen to a bunch of people cry about how it’s all because they care about oppa’s health and how oppa is a role model and blah blah blah when really it’s all about them selfishly holding their idol hostage on a pedestal. Also, because I’m chicken and I don’t want to get screamed at by strangers. :D
