Happy Birthday To Our Duizhang!
Where can I even start? It’s time to celebrate 22 years of a man we have all grown to adore. It’s funny thinking back to when I first saw Kris during the teaser period. I remember him standing out to me so much because I thought he was so strange and mysterious. When the History MV came out I knew I was officially crazy for him (no more shakin’ like that ;D)
You started off rather straight forward and reserved, causing everyone to think you were a little cold. However, I always had the feeling that there was more to you. I loved watching you gradually reveal yourself more and more on interviews and shows. You had your moments from “I can fly~” on Sina Live Chat to all your laughing on iFeng to your strange punishment on Total Entertainment. I could go on and on. Behind that intimidating gaze is a complete dork that never fails to make me smile like an idiot.
Words cannot describe how grateful and lucky I am to be able to say I had the chance to see you twice. Though I am not able to say I have personally met you, being in your presence is always enough. I will never forget the time you waved at me from backstage during SM Town Anaheim after all my frantic efforts or when you walked past me while entering the autograph session tent during KCON after I fought to get to the front of the crowd. My heart stopped when I saw your glowing skin, charming smile and deep voice. Your presence is so overwhelming and I love being in it.
Though I mentioned only 9 of the things I love about you, there are still numerous others that would take too long to mention. You take on the heavy responsibility over the boys and you are doing an amazing job. Although you don’t seem to openly express your affection, it’s the subtle things you do that really mean a lot. You constantly watch over the well-being of the other members and always know what to say. You never forget to give back to your fans as well, always giving their cameras a glance and making small chat with them. Your immense patience means a lot, especially when you never give up or lose your temper through all the chaotic events EXO has experienced lately. Thank you for sacrificing your embarrassment just to satisfy our request of aegyo (buing buing~). Thank you for revealing your gorgeous singing voice. Thank you for all you have done for the sake of those who love and support you…
…because we will always continue to give you that love and support.
Happy Birthday Kris ❤
