This isn’t acting. These are our Kim Myungsoo’s real tears.
The expression on his face completely breaks my heart each time I see it. This is not a happy expression, nor is it one that expresses gratitude in any way.
This is an expression of pain. Suffering.
So often we see the boys smiling on fancams and variety shows and things like that, but we forget how much pain and suffering they have had to go through to bring us the smiles that become their energy to go on. Sometimes we forget that even though they are living their dream, it is a very difficult dream.Myungsoo’s expression here is so raw, so vulnerable, and you can tell that this is 100% real - he’s exhausted, in pain, and he seems like he’s really hit the end.
I have no idea when they filmed this, and each time I see this gifset appear on my dash, my heart is in pain to think of how much the poor boy has gone through in the past year - no - his entire career. Especially with the whole scandal breaking out when it did, and beyond that. How much effort he has put into his dream, but even raw passion cannot overtake pain sometimes. Same for the rest of the members.
They need us Inspirits. They need our support. Our support is their energy, the fuel for their smiles on stage. I really do not want to see Myungsoo cry like this, or any of the boys, for that matter.
