This is a video made by a fan for Changmin's birthday. The video was played at his birthday party with the fans. I heard that Changmin was really moved by this video.
This is to remind the readers that there are many KCassies who supported HoMin throughout this ordeal while enduring extreme difficulties and fighting endlessly against the rumors and bashings. There are also many CJS fans who became TVXQ fans after finding out the truth. They are the true heroines who stood by HoMin and fought against the antis while searching for the truth.
Many evidences and facts were collected and researched by those fans, and without them, this blog won't exist.
The story is told by subtitles without any voice, so it will be really easy to follow my translation. Just go to the next line when the subtitle changes. I put timestamps too, but it won't be hard to follow. The translations in parenthesis are dialogues in the pictures. It's long, so just open another browser window with translation on the side while playing the video. I hope you enjoy it.
It almost brought tears to my eyes (I'm a sensitive man LOL) while translating it because I know how difficult it was for those fans, how hard they fought, and how much they cried.
* The video is by Butter-nim, the administrator of Max's fan site "You got the power"
* One of the reader of my blog, nikkiyang subbed the video. You can watch it here.
when I was 14,
I saw a boy kissing a cat
his innocent eyes were unforgettable
so I became his fan
the boy was a fairy
who grew up to be a god
and meanwhile, I became a 22 year old lady (0:27)
("Mom this concert is the last one")
("You think Max is going to be my son in law for that?")
being Max's fan for 7 years
was not an easy task.
sometimes I lied to mom ("Where are you?" "Library~")
ditched classes ("Where are you going all dressed up like that?" "going to a date~")
when others were meeting men
I was in a fan meeting. ("<-Man")
Even though my side was cold (* meaning no boyfriend)
I was always happy (0:46)
when I listened to Oppa's songs
it felt like I had everything in the world
the loving heart was
but since some day (1:02)
I couldn't listen to the songs I loved
I sometimes fought all night with some strangers
it was hard (1:10)
I thought a lot about (1:18)
how precious oppa was to me
with the belief
one day I will see you again
the moon on August 21st was big and bright (1:44)
from that moon
oppa came down
how oppa danced beautifully
how the voice
deeply resonated the air
I wonder if oppa knows all that
the things I thought I lost (2:07)
all came back
started beating again
I am Max Changmin's fan. (banner: shut it and only Max Changmin)
the past and present
now and for ever
to continue to like Oppa, (2:26)
will make me do a lot of things
fight against the nature ("be alert. ur gonna die if you fall asleep")
and probably fight against the antis ("I'll fight you with cold facts")
("Oppa I'll protect you!)
overcome kissing scenes
in a magazine bought with my own money ("this man... again!")
read your endless dating stories (dating dating dating dating dating)
need to study hard (2:43)
and get a decent job
I want to be a great person
because I am Max Changmin's fan.
you are walking with a huge load (2:57)
if only a little
I want to share it
let's walk together
you are not alone
it's said that nothing lasts forever in this world 3:13
but instead of uncertain future
10s of thousands of us
who loves oppa
we believe this moment, right now
Changmin oppa who I love a lot (3:33)
make a lot of money
always stay healthy
and smile happily
be with us all the time
for a long long time
let's stay close
even if you don't show it
that you like us
always shining bright from above,
my star Shim Changmin-shi.
Happy 24th Birthday
