HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRIS!!!
My eyes look so squinty in the above pic. Well, it was a sunny day. I was thinking of making the collage colorful, but I thought black, gray, and white seem nice and simple. I’ve seen Dui Zhang wearing black and gray in his pre-debut pics. and videos of when he was training under SM Entertainment and since then I’ve made the assumption that black is his favorite color (forgive me if I am wrong).
Since my name is already mentioned in the birthday video that was organized by the International EXO Facebook Fan Page admins. there is no point in removing it from the pictures here (the video has been divided into two parts, which you can see below). Also, the last three words of my name, HUM, is pronounced as HUM for HUMBLE.
Here is the message that I sent for Kris‘ birthday, which can also be seen in the second part (PART II) of the video (the same goes for the collage above):
I was going to write something cheesy at the end of the message such as, “one of your angels,” but then I thought, “NO!” xD Well, at least I put a heart at the end =P Dui Zhang should consider himself lucky. This is the first and last time I put a heart in a message for him =P
As mentioned before, the birthday video of Kris, which was organized by the International EXO Facebook Fan page admins. has been divided into two parts. My message along with Josialyn’s, a friend of mine here on WordPress, is in the second part (PART II). The videos were actually sent to him by one of his fanbases ^^ However, why did my pictures have to appear when the words “drunk” from Like A G6 played…WHY!? *smacks head* WHYYY!? *cries*
Kris Birthday Video – PART I
Kris Birthday Video – PART II
Yes, my words of appreciation are nothing fancy and dramatic like a speech for a Presidential election and I’m no Shakespeare either =P I just wanted to get straight to the point ^^
Additionally, there is a video that I was part of for an event in Sydney organized by Baidu Wufan (Kris) Bar, but I’m too shy to place it here >< It’s on YouTube. I’ve talked about the event in the following post: A Day in the City of Sydney to Wish EXO’s Kris ‘Happy Birthday’
However, I do have something important to say….
It has been an honor to have discovered Kris since January of this year and I regret that many of us were not given the opportunity to support or be fans of him during his trainee years. Sorry that we couldn’t be there during those difficult moments, Kris. I know how it’s like to be away from home…2007 was also the year that I left home for the first time to pursue studies at a university in an entirely different environment and country. 2009 was the year that I discovered K-Pop, K-Dramas, and J-Dramas (with life lessons) and became busy with learning about this whole new world, especially the culture. If I had not discovered this back then, then I would have probably not been writing this today or would have never of known the existence of Kris Wu.
Furthermore, 2010-2011 was the year I was given the opportunity to take up a leadership role to represent an organization of over hundreds of students and I know how it’s like to be in that position; to be constantly under pressure and striving to do the best no matter what because you want to make everyone around you happy, and this includes both your team members and the crowd. Even so, by taking up this role, it’s a moment you know that you can make wonderful memories with the people around you. Sometimes I see a tiny glimpse of myself in you (except I don’t have a stern face or cold appearance =P) and this is perhaps the reason I want to support you. Not to mention, I also have a child-like quality, according to my friends, while trying to be mature. Hence, I can relate to you in that sense ^^’
Moreover, being in our 20s, I guess we have gotten a taste of what life offers…the good and the bad. But that’s life. There will be ups and there will be downs. It’s how we deal with it that’s important. It’s also strange how our perception of the world is so different when we are teenagers but when we experience different things in life as we grow up, we have a whole different view point. I guess life teaches everyone lessons ’cause I know that I’m not the same person that I once was when I was a teen. I suppose we shouldn’t have expectations because expectations sometimes lead to disappointment. The most important thing, though, is that we must try to live in the present.
Even though you’re younger than me by about a year, you look very serious at times and it makes you look older… Don’t stress, though! =P I still remember how I teased you in the post, EXO’s Kris Wu – The ‘Mysterious’ Member, about the fact that you didn’t smile. It became known in the fandom that you were the guy from EXO or even K-Pop that didn’t smile a lot, but you know what? I knew that you would eventually smile and that it would be a precious sight for many. Guess what? Everyone is crazy about your smile! ^^ I also know that you’re trying to break away from the serious image that you had initially been coined with. For instance, you have been displaying a lot of aegyo lately and I’m aware that you want to make everyone happy as a result. Thank you for showing this warm and considerate side to us, Dui Zhang. We really appreciate it.
On a random note, I will always remember the days when I was waiting for your teaser to be released. Even though your teaser was very simple, I liked how you acted out that there was an air of tranquility, peace, and freedom while trying to connect to something higher. Being the philosophical person that I am at times, I feel like I can connect to that. Additionally, you had a mysterious aura, and as you probably know by now, that is what caught my attention. For that reason, I decided to promote you as the EXO member with the mysterious image that would capture the attention of potential fans. It still amazes me how fast this year has passed by since then and how much we have learned about you and watch you grow. It has truly been a wonderful journey.
I also have to point out that I may be slightly worried about you joining Hollywood. I would never want to stop someone from achieving their dream, but I advise you to do some research on that industry so that if you join one day, you will be prepared. It’s not as glamorous as it seems. The morals and values over there are completely different to what we hold onto, especially in collectivist societies. I’m saying this as a friend, as you call all of us fans. I think you’re already doing an excellent job as being the leader of EXO-M and I can’t think of any other role that could have fit more perfectly for you (apart from being a basketball player in the NBA or something =P) ^^
Most importantly, thank you for showing your fans/friends your gratitude as we can see in this video:
Lastly, I must announce that this is my final post on Kris. Thanks for all the FANTABULOUS comments that all of you have left on my blog. I actually use the word ‘fantabulous’ frequently, but I didn’t want Kris to use it or copy my awesomeness, so I never mentioned it in my blog. This is just in case he lurks around here =P I say this for the reason that a couple of people copy me when they see me or hear me use that word. If he uses this word, then I would definitely know where it came from. I’m watching you Dui Zhang! Don’t be smart with me! I know that you snoop around here once in a while and have read some comments not just from me, but from some of my readers/friends as well. I have seen the signs, but I’m not going to point all of them out. I have known this for a while, but I decided to play along… =P All those things cannot be a coincidence. Celebrity or no celebrity, handsome or not handsome…I treat everyone the same, buddy…take it or leave it! =P
On a more serious note, all of my thoughts are sincere and thank you, Kris, for reading and taking out your precious time if you had done so. I’m sorry if any of my comments or thoughts have ever hurt you. Please know that was never my intention. I just want you to be a strong person. Overall, it’s nice that you pay attention to fans and care about everyone. Thank you. Xie Xie. Kamsahamnida. It is an honor. ^^ Looking forward to the day I see you in person, iA (if God wills). Also, I’ve mentioned this quote before, but I’m going to mention it again:
In life you’ll realize that there is a purpose for every person you meet. Never regret knowing someone, good people will give you happiness, bad people will give you experience, while the worst people will give you a lesson, and the best people will give you memories. God doesn’t give the people we want, but the people we need. Some people are there to test you, some will use you, some will teach you, and some will bring out the best in you. Trust in God and appreciate everyone He brings into your life.-SQ
All I want to say is that I really appreciate the comments from all of my readers and I am happy to have made some lovely friends on here. A big thank you to everyone! Can’t believe that it has almost been a year since I’ve been making posts on EXO and the ‘Dragon Prince‘ Kris Wu. It was fun and I’m glad that many of you got to learn more about this ‘magical creature’, as one of my readers says, called Kris aka Wu Yi Fan and appreciate him more through my blog. This goes for all my silent readers as well. I do check my stats. page regularly and know the amount of views that I have each day on my blog, and so far it’s exceeding 2000 views per day! Most of these views are from my posts on Kris, so I know that A LOT of Kris fans do lurk around here =P Please do not ask me to continue writing about him. It’s a personal decision that I have made. I will write about EXO as a whole, though…so don’t worry! ^^’ Hope you all will learn more and appreciate Dui Zhang in the coming years, iA ^^ I guess my part is done =)
Hasta la vista, lovelies <3<3<3 and once again…HAPPY BIRTHDAY DUI ZHANG KRIS! Hope it’s a FANTABULOUS one! ^_~ May God bless you with lots of health, wealth, success and happiness. Ameen.
P.S. I accidentally published this early. I was in the process of editing and accidentally clicked on the wrong button =P #DuizhangKrisDay and #Kris is currently trending worldwide on Twitter! ^^
