Today marks the end of the 5 years and 3 months of DJ-ing for Jungsu and Hyukjae. After tonight, Super Junior Sukira KTR will be taken over by Sungmin and Ryeowook.
First and foremost, I do not oppose the two new DJs. I know they will do well. They have shown their capabilities already in the past few weeks and I am immensely grateful towards the staff of Sukira because they retained the name Super Junior in the show. They didn't give it to other groups and for that, I felt like there are still people who believe in my boys.
But even if I'm happy that I'll be seeing Sungmin and Ryeowook's cuteness more often, I cannot deny the fact that it feels sad to know that Jungsu and Hyukjae have to put down their DJ mics for the mean time.
I said I wouldn't cry. I feel like I don't have any rights to feel so because I wasn't there when it started and I wasn't even regularly watching them during Bora... But with the fact that I love these two very much, I guess I have to take my words back...
So yes, few minutes before the last broadcast of DJ EunTeuk, I am tearing up.
The truth is I am affected. They have set another history with this. It's another accomplishment for the group. The two hold the title of being the longest running DJ idols in the history of KPOP. For five years and three months, they have been part of the family of KTR and I know that it's gonna be difficult for them to leave...
because they loved the show.
Honestly, the tears that are flowing out of my eyes were brought by the thoughts that I know it's gonna be painful for them to say goodbye. I do not plan to watch the Bora since I fear like I'm gonna end up like how I did when Heechul said his farewells to Youngstreet.
But then, Jungsu said again that it's not gonna be an END. It's gonna be an AND. And I know that someday, even if not in Sukira anymore, I'm gonna see them again in a radio station, doing this thing which I know they're best at, being themselves every night... I know someday, we'll be able to go back to what we're gonna leave tonight.
I wish I could just tell them that even if I wasn't an avid listener; even if I wasn't there when it started... Their roles as DJ of KTR for the past years have left its marks in the hearts of the people who valued their words, their stories, their opinions, their jokes, their funny antics, their sweet nothings, their being themselves.
Kudos, DJ EunTeuk.. Whatever lies ahead, you know we'll always be right behind you. Good luck.
