Memememe, I need to answer this!
Haha, I have really a thousand feels for Minwoo. I have fully invested myself in three Kpop groups up to now, with Boyfriend being the latest, and I'm the kind that can only like one group at a time so I have sorta abandoned my previous two groups >_<
But every single time I like a group, I fully invest all my emotions and thoughts to them, and Minwoo is really the most...raw, most human person I felt from these three groups. It's not that the rest are fake, but that there's just this thing about Minwoo that you can feel from him.
I first looked at him differently when watching the 1000th Day Special Planning, when due to the long break between Obsession and the last album, he said he was really sorry towards the fans, telling them to wait for Boyfriend, and that the album will be coming soon, because he truthfully didn't know when the "soon" will be. He was going on saying how he shouldn't be saying this (because he's with the company and in the company PoV, such things aren't needed to be told to the fans), but that he himself knows the word "soon" is very vague, and can only wish the fans will stay with Boyfriend. It was really not something I expected him to say and I could feel that this maknae, with the same age as me, has so much maturity behind his cute image. And he's really very thankful to his fans. During fansigns, fanmeeting, you can see he puts in a lot of effort to make it funny, to converse, to make poses towards fans (and their cameras). Like trying his best to learn the different languages.
OH AND TALKING ABOUT CONSIDERATION FOR FANS.
Mission Ep 3 and 4 had me swooning for Minwoo all over again.
Firstly, he went around with the twins, it was so funny cause he was in charge of the finances cause the twins (esp. Kwangmin) wouldn't be able to handle. And they met a few fans and usually people meet fans and go, can I have a discount? But he's like, oh you're a fan, I need to buy! It was so amazing cause he understands that his fans need to earn a living too and that's his way of reciprocating their love and I was so touched.
Especially when they went to the bakery and Minwoo, right after paying, decided to give a cream bread to the fan. Like reflex.
Episode 4 when they asked the two girls for help, Minwoo KEPTTTT talking to them to make them comfortable. He was with Hyunseong and Jungmin who both aren't very proficient in Japanese so he himself had to take up the role. I was so amazed cause he was really fluent going on and on, and when at the end he met with the other three and looked so tired, I totally felt his pain. Lolz, imagine being thrown in an awkward situation and trying your best, anyone would be tired lolz, but he was so nice to them till the end, I'm not surprised if the two girls end up being big fans of Minwoo <3
And then the newest video from Starship - Escape, my goodness.
/spoiler/ Minwoo was in on the hidden camera prank /spoiler/
BUT HE MADE ME CRY. I was so sad. Not sure which album he was referring to but he was like "So you knew from the start, and we even went around promoting this album, and at fansigns told the fans the newest album was coming out..." Silence. "Then why did I even participate in this (I think its the new one they're preparing for) album?" And his tone when he said that sentence, especially how it faded off at the end and his awkward hand shaking movement I was like THIS IS MINWOO AT ITS RAWEST.
I think he's just a real sweetheart. I was really sad when Wonder Boy portrayed such an annoying image of him. And I was so sad when Kwangmin seemed to really be pissed off at like Ep 12 when Minwoo was saying how Donghyun is weaker (strength-wise) than him. Minwoo had this awkward aura to him in the sense I could feel he was trying to make the broadcast fun by embracing an annoying role but he was borderlining real annoyance towards the twins and that made me so sad. Because on other broadcasts you can see the twins really like Minwoo. I mean, firstly they aren't just colleagues, they were actually schoolmates. There was a stronger connection between them then just working buddies.
Oh oh, and I really think Boyfriend is really a super sincere group. Like, there are some groups that come together and just do their own activities at the end of the day. We think our group are great friends and all, but in reality they're just colleagues. That kinda saddens me although its true, but I feel that Boyfriend really like each other. Idk. Like firstly the twins and blood-related so of course they like each other LOLZ. Jungmin is a really playful, and I think he has a bit of badboy streak, but the maknae line really like him cause he's fun to hang out with and isn't very hyung-ish, while he's a cute dongsaeng towards the older two. Hyunseong is a bit awkward but he's a good hyung I guess lolz. Donghyun is just super affectionate towards Minwoo lolz, but because he's way older than the rest you can see he really wants to take care of all of them. I can't help but feel that they meet up with each other on days off even if they already see each other so much because there's a real connection between them.
Oh my goodness, wait, this is a Minwoo thread. Lolz.
If I were to say, he's just a very Blood Type A Leo. Lolz. I'm a bit into horoscopes and I know a bit about Korean blood type stereotypes, so I guess he's just as they say LOLZ. A very hardworking, usually quiet person. Insightful, and all with his Blood Type A, but also playful, dominant, leader-ish in his field .
(I was so amazed, so shocked, so proud when watching My Avatar and Start Up filming. Wait, let me elaborate. In Start Up, they were three by three and couldn't get the right beat. So Jungmin was like Minwoo, why don't you lead! And it was a small thing, but it was so cute that they rely on Minwoo when it's about dance even though he's the youngest. Especially in My Avatar, when the rest were minding their own business and Minwoo was carefully checking the markings the staff were putting on the floor, and when they rehearsed, MINWOO WAS SINGING. GOODNESS THEY SHOULD MAKE HIM SING MORE! HE SOUNDS SO GOOD. anyway, they rehearsed and minwoo was singing to lead the dance, and telling them what the next move was. I'm not sure if Jungmin was doing sth else cause the rest knew their positions but Jungmin didn't. So he was organising the rest of them and asking Youngmin (whose position mirrored Jungmin's) for his position and then told Jungmin his position. It was so cute seeing the youngest do such a thing, and even cuter that Donghyun completely let Minwoo do it even though he's the leader. Like he knew Minwoo would do a good job. <3 Andand, Minwoo is such a reliable maknae and he obviously was the one most in the know about the situation, but Donghyun went like, yah (generally), when letting your hand down look towards Jungmin and Hyunseong for the timing. It was more directed towards the twins, but Minwoo was like "okay!". Not sure if it's reflex for him to be answering to such calls, but it's really cute that even though he's the most in the know, he humbly accepts whatever opinions.) Even in Leader's 1000th day video, he said if there was a situation that needed a leader without him, he would entrust it to Minwoo <3
This is so freaking long. I'm so sorry lolz. I just have too much feels for him and I just want more people to recognise that Minwoo is really a gift to Boyfriend. Like the rest are too, but seriously. I mean, the twins are maknaes too! But Minwoo was like, does the twins look like they wanna be maknaes? No? Yeah, that's why I'm it. HAHA.
