I first know soshi from ‘Kissing You’ music video. I was watching it for Donghae, since i’m a huge SuJu fan. I thought they were ok and the video is very cute with bright colors and the lollipop dance. But none of their faces that I can actually remember. They all look pretty much the same to me.
After watching KY a few times, the song finally echoing in my head and refuse to get out. Since i’m running out of good songs to listens to, I started to look for SNSD stuff. Then I stumbled upon the Dream Concert performance. Without knowing about the stupid incident at the time, I thought they did just fine. I love the song they performed too, it was Girls’ Generation. Unfortunately, when I watched their MVs on youtube, I can’t help but to read the comments. That’s how I found out that these girls has some antis. I begun to dig deeper into the lies and started to believe that Jessica is a playgirl, Tiffany is a wild child and the rest of the girls did plastic surgery. Being a mature person who cares more about music than artistes personal lives, I downloaded all SNSD MVs and fell for their fun and cute music. At one point, I dislike these girls without knowing anything about them. But something inside me can’t get enough of them and their music. Slowly I started to recognize Yoona form YAMD and her appearances in SJ MVs. Along the way, my negative feelings towards SNSD slowly fades away. Not soon after that, in early August, I joined Soshified. I kept telling myself that I won’t be liking this group too much, I’m just here for… er the news. But once you logged in and became a SSF member, it’s almost impossible not being a huge fan of the girls.
I hate writing and posting stuff in forums. I didn’t really care about those things anyway. So I became a very silent surfer in SSF for a month. Not even one post..keke.. Even though i’m not posting anything, i went from thread to thread stalking any interesting stuff to read. I’m soooo not used to the pairings thing at the beginning… I thought it was too weird and kinda creepy. But! SSF changed me into a more open person.. haha I blamed this on SSF!
One night I was surfing like usual and suddenly I clicked on the FanFics section. At first I’m just browsing around, trying to find a decent fic to read until I stumbled upon a recommendation. A fic titled, ‘Wishing You Were Here’ by JENNIE. Still unsure what the fic is all about, but my curiosity was running high, I went to read the fic from chapter one… I gotta admit I was feeling uncomfortable at first, but since JENNIE is a great storyteller, I managed to read the fic till the end in just one night. I even fell for YulSic and TaeNy after reading it.
Yulsic look great together, plus they’re best friends in real life. Everybody love Yul and Sica together with their cute PDA that drives the fans crazy. I’m not really into TaeNy though.. maybe because I’m a huge TaeSu supporter…keke. For me, Taeyeon is only compatible with Junsu. Anyway, my interest for Yulsic didin’t last long after my visit to JeNy thread. Jessica and Tiffany are so sweet together. They’re like the exact opposite of each other, and their PDA is just win. So I jump ships without any hesitation..hehe. Up until now, my fave pairing is still JeNy. Reading 3B (Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered) just make me love them even more. 3B is by far the most enjoyable fic that I’ve read. I can feel the characters pain and joy which is quite powerful effect for a lazy reader like me. I usually skips long paragraphs and went straight to the important storyline, but when I read 3B, I want to cherish every paragraph and every word that pooltides wrote.
So Nyuh Shi Dae
After failing in resisting myself from visiting Soshified more than once a day, I have to admit that I’m already soshified.
I have a huge amount of respect for SNSD for being able to stay strong through it all. They’re young and always being honest with their own personality. But some people take it too seriously and their small jokes became an insult just because of some people’s jealousy. When they’re booed and was given the silent treatment during DC, they still give the best they can. It’s not easy for them to perform in that state. Even if the tears fill their eyes, they can’t cry. They must keep on pretending that this is nothing at all. I love them even more for staying strong and prove to the antis how wrong they are. The nine of them will stay whether the antis like it or not.
Now the dark past will stay in the past. They’re heading towards the bright future, starting with a word, GEE. And I, now a Sone, will support them all the way.
Let’s Go Soshi! Let’s Go!
