Chad Future leaves kpop
Most people love to hate on this guy, and while I understand the reasons why, I just can't hate on him. Chad does Chad and makes no apologies. Haters can hate away and he just keeps being Chad. By some crazy chance it seems to keep working out well enough for him to keep having fun with it, and he seems to stay focused on enjoying that fact for as long as it will last. I don't follow what he does, so I'm not really a fan, but I can't hate.
I see in him the same attitude that I see in 2PM members. They know how much luck is involved, they know how many people don't take them seriously, and they don't care about pleasing everyone's ideas of "real" or "authentic" because none of that diminishes how much work they put in or that this, now, whatever form it has, is the opportunity given to them to live out or give up, and they choose to live it. Funny how the performers, whose whole lives are taken over and criticized, can often just enjoy the fun of the music better than those whose only burden is listening.
