Well, today's the day!! Tonight, in less than 12 hours, I'm finally going to see my 7 favorite boys after 3 years of waiting! Yep, One Great Step in Manila is tonight, and I CAN'T WAIT! As I listen to my Infinite playlist, it dawns on me that I'll actually be seeing and hearing the boys perform it live and right before my eyes. It's enough to make a fangirl go crazy~
Sunggyu entered Woollim to be part of a band like NELL, he ended up in Infinite. Sungyeol entered Woollim to be an actor trainee, he ended up in Infinite. I continue to wonder how they feel, having been so close to their dream but instead pointed to a different direction, and given something possibly better? I can't define what's good and what's better for them personally, but the group, the fans, the support--I'm pretty sure they're still grateful for it. At the same time, Woollim allows them to reach for snippets of their original dreams: Sunggyu had his rock-ish solo, and Yeollie's had a couple of tries at small-time acting.
I'm so grateful for the fact that Infinite came to be. I'm glad that Tablo and Mithra chose to produce their debut album; I'm glad Come Back Again had been such a hit and allowed them to gain recognition and popularity; I'm glad that their choreographers gave them the scorpion dance that blew everyone off their feet; I'm glad that that Inspirits fought for Infinite's first win during the Be Mine promotional time; I'm glad that after 3 years, Infinite and the Inspirits continue to stand strong.
Although Woollim has made those agreements with SM Ent, and although I am particularly frustrated with it, if it keeps their business running and their groups alive, then fine. I just pray that SM Ent will not touch the Woollim artists' styles and music and taint it just for the sake of earning more money.
How I love these 7 boys, and I hope nothing tears them apart for years to come. For tonight, it's just them and us Filipino Inspirits <3
