The contribution of these five boys to my life is something that I can’t even come close to explaining. They have become a part of my heart, a part of my soul, a part of my universe, including the ones I make up in my head all the time. I still remember the day I came across my first video of them, a little over two years from now, wondering who on earth those weird, silly boys could be. Little did I know that they would be my inspiration, my motivation, my source of light in times of trouble. I never would’ve thought they would help me find my own passion towards music, towards playing the piano and writing. As they grew, I grew up with them. As they cried, I cried with them. As they struggled, triumphed, conquered, and succeeded, I was with them every step of the way. And even though I wasn’t a part of their journey from the very beginning, I learned to love and understand each and every one of them, come to appreciate the talents they share oh-so-generously. I simply cannot thank them enough for everything they’ve done, how much they’ve inspired me from the very first time I laid my eyes on them. The life lessons that came along with being part of their fandom are memories I will never forget. Lee Jinki, thank you for teaching us how to be a leader. Choi Minho, thank you for showing us that adding a little more passion in doing things won’t hurt. Kim Jonghyun, thank you for demonstrating how to be strong, inside and out. Kim Kibum, thank you for making us become aware of our true identity no matter what. Lee Taemin, thank you for showing us that we can grow and improve. And finally, to all five, to SHINee, thank you for sharing your music with us. Thank you for touching our hearts. Have a happy, blessed, and bright 5th anniversary. We love you <3
