I have always loved korean music, I listen to many kind of them. NCT is no exception. They, I would say, is so
k-pop boy group typical. Super talented, amazing personalities, great variety of music and of course outstanding performance.
But then I discover Mark Lee, the acoustic version of Mark Lee to be precise.
There is something different I feel about this man right here. Unlike others korean singer, he is so casual, comfortable, and (I don’t know how to express this exactly in english) familiar…
Do you guys know that one video he did as a part of NCT 24hr Relay Cam where he just played some songs on his guitar, listened to John Mayer as he casually shared about how he sees himself in the future? It did not feel like a video of mega star Mark, it felt like I was on routine late-night call with my bestfriend who currently live at somewhere in London to pursue his music career
As a part of NCT, he is furiously rap, dance with full force and sing his heart out.
But then I found his acoustic version, plays guitar singing to Tamia at noon and plays John Mayer and Frank Ocean songs at night while eating cereal after the late-night shower. I mean he is so real, too real. It almost feel like he will be one of my friend whom I’ll hug dearly when I meet him after the covid-19 quarantine is over.
Oh my God, there are so many words but I can’t exactly express how I feel hahaha
The fans of Mark, congrats you guys are winning.
The future partner of Mark, congrats you are winning.
and Mark Lee, you are a precious human being. Thank you for being you, your video is my favourite companion when I’m studying and working. You are a winner, and I hope you earn it!
This is not going to be a poem, it’s going to be a love story a true love story actually happening before my eyes.
This is a story about two individuals whom I know closely. Individuals I never thought will be this meaningful in my life. I watch they grow, I watch how they get more comfortable with each other everyttime, I watch their sight toward each other turn sweeter and sweeter.
The boy is to afraid of losing the girl and the girl? oh she is afraid of her own feeling and expectation. The story should be simple and painless but just like any other greatest love story, the divine, the freaking divine decide to intervene.
The boy prayed so hard begging he’s allowed to keep her close physically next to him, and the girl? Oh may only her and God know what she prayed for. As we all know, God’s answer is never direct.
Instead of easily putting them together so that their love could grow and develop, God decided to send her to the farthest place possibly imagine. Hurting not only the boy heart but the girl as well. My oh my, we may now know what the girl prayed for.
Ordeal never is easy, the boy start to loose his hope and the girl is to afraid to pray for anything more. As they meet for the last time before she’s gone, they jokingly chat. Saying words by words assuring each other two things. One, that this separation, if it is, will be the best for both of them. Or two, that she will come back.
And they keep glancing into the darkness and looking at each other’s eyes back and forth. Feeling pain and disbelief and frustration while questioning the divine invertention true purpose for them.
*the story will continue, if the fate decide to give them a second chance.
Semua orang mempunyai cara sendiri menyembuhkan patah hatinya…
Ada yang memilih sendiri dan diam, menyibukkan diri dengan buku dan musik
Ada yang lebih suka ditemani, menyibukkan diri dengan tawa dan canda
Ada juga yang masih seperti aku, masih tidak tau dan bertanya tanya. Apakah patah hati ini layak disembuhkan? Atau dibiarkan saja ada disana, berjaga apa bila waktunya datang seseorang yang bisa menyembuhkan dan membantuku lupa rasa sakitnya?
There are times when you feel like you have taken the wrong turn at the intersection you passed and there are no way back
There are times when you wonder why is so dry in this path, why is everybody else walk through what seems like a flower path
Keep walking, keep breathing, follow your heart still when you choose way at any intersection coming across your way
The flowers are there, it’s just not bloom yet.
One day, and not so long from now cause the spring will soon come, the flowers with start to grow. It wil bloom beautifully and you can look back and realize that it was, indeed, a flower path all along
