“I wouldn’t be overreacting like ELF even if my own bias was enlisting!!” “ELF are so obsessed with voting!”
Do you honestly think that, all that time & money we spend on SuJu, is all for nothing? We aren’t kidding when we say “they really do care about us”.
Firstly, they call it “fan love” not “fan service”
-They stood up for us & indirectly said “—— you” on twitter(last year December)
-On the day of the SBS incident, after the show they remained on stage to bow & shake hands with ELF
-When ELF get bashed for “bulk buying”, they turn it into a joke & say that they bought their own albums, and they asked if we buy in bulk because they know it’s cheaper for us that way at 1 of their pre-recordings during their comeback
-They buy icecream for us during their comebacks. A few weeks ago when they promised to buy ice cream for ELF at 1 of their pre recordings, it was on a Sunday so it was difficult to find a grocery store open, so instead they got a truck to deliver it
-During their schedules they take pictures/videos of ELF, & often they’ll upload them on twitter with captions like “always thankful” “I love you” “ELF are beautiful” etc
-They often say things to us like “take care” “don’t get sick” “stay healthy” “it’s late so be careful”
-When we send them album receipts & gifts, they take pictures & upload them thanking us
-They’ve dedicated 3 songs to us
-During their SS4(Super Show 4) stops, they brought ELF up on stage as their “girlfriends” & taught them a dance, at SS4 in Paris 1 of the ELF who was brought on stage, gave her camera to Shindong to take a picture with her & Siwon(he ended up accidentally taking a video though) & then Shindong held another ELF’s purse for her when she rest it on the stage floor
-Yesung opened a cafe for his parents called Handel & Gretel, which he sometimes works at, he personally asked the company to lower the prices because he knew it’s mainly fans who would visit the cafe
-Leeteuk personally requested that organizers should keep their concert ticket prices affordable
-When we trend things on twitter for SuJu, sometimes when Leeteuk knows about it, he tweets a screen cap of it
-When Siwon was on vacation he played a game with ELF, he gave us clues to find him & told us that if we found him he’d give us a kiss(& he did, ELF got a kiss on their hands)
-For Eunhyuk’s birthday last year while they were in Taiwan, ELF stood outside their hotel & lit up fireworks, the members came out onto the balcony & sang happy birthday together with ELF. They also celebrate their birthdays together with ELF when it’s on the day of a concert/fanmeet etc
-During 1 of their concerts, an ELF gave Sungmin chocolate, he sat on the side of the stage & shared it with ELF
-Once when they were at the airport, an ELF got pushed down by a security guard, Donghae helped her get up from the floor
-They signed a bit of the confetti at their concert
-They remember ELF’s faces & names who they see often. During SS4 Sungmin brought an ELF on stage because he said he’s seen her at their other concert stop as well
-During their concerts & recordings for shows, they joke around & talk to ELF
-At their pre recordings they always ask fans there if they ate as yet. One time, they asked ELF if they ate yet, & then when ELF there said no they asked what they wanted to eat, & ELF said something hot(the weather was really cold that time), so they bought about 600 cups of coffee
-During their concerts, they take ELF’s cameras & take pictures with them & they play around with the gifts that are thrown on stage
-They thank us in 4+ different languages often & try talking in other languages as well, especially when they’re in other countries
These are only a few of the things they do for us.
ELF care about SuJu a lot, and SuJu cares a lot about ELF, it’s not a one sided thing.
I’ll be honest, I never had a favorite music artist and never knew where I belonged when it came to music. I feel like the luckiest person when I found Super Junior and joined the fandom. They are so down-to-earth and humble, so sweet and caring for their fans, families, co-workers, etc I could never love another group as much as I love them because they are not what Super Junior is. We don’t joke when we say SJ and ELF are a family.
These people will never cease to hate what they don’t understand, fear what they can’t conquer.
And this is why i love my fandom. I LOVE SUPER JUNIOR. Do we really need to say this AGAIN??? Are you people jealous of how SUPER JUNIOR treat their FANS? oh, not fans, I MEAN THEIR ELF. You know, you don’t have to be jealous about it, instead of bashing us, saying bad things about Super Junior or spreading rumors about them, just THINK of THINGS that YOUR FANDOM/IDOLS have done to you. If they ever say things like this to you. If they tells you how much they are thankful to you. Have they told these to things to your fandom? Just go and support them. Because SOMEDAY you’ll realize what THESE THINGS MEANS TO US. :)
So here I am, with my head in my hands, hoping, praying, that everything will work out. That our leader will always be happy and healthy and never regret a moment in his life. That he will always succeed in anything that he ever wants to do, that they’ll win MAMA and have brighter days in the future. I will always be an ELF, and nothing will ever change that.
There’s a banner in the crown with a picture of Kangin saying “Leeteuk, this time it’s my turn to wait for you” ㅠㅠ
