  1. He was more modest than Key. He probably made the best idea girl. Why can’t he use bright lighting in his room. Although I like the song “Fire” it is hardly uplifting. -_- What is with them in liking black & red so much?


    • I wondered why he couldn’t use lighting, too. Maybe it has to do with the huge projector? O.o Actually, I think the lyrics for Fire are very uplifting! The genre…not so much. I love red! It’s third in my favorite colors^^ I know why they like it so much 😉


    • “A diary. In there we would both write our thoughts and experiences and memories. Then sometime later, we’ll look

      at it together and reminisce.”- I love that idea.

      ” I’ll walk with her on piggyback! (LOL)”- My dad used to give me piggyback when I was still a little kid. I

      sorta miss that.

      “Someone who can face me honestly.”- Means she shouldn’t be fake.

      “Razors? I don’t usually go to convenience stores…”- When I read Razors, my eyes widen. Then quickly realize it

      was for shaving. Idiot me.

      “Respect for individuality.”- This is why I love you Dino.

      You can’t see the screen or the movie if their is light. Especially when you use projector. And their is nothing wrong with liking Black and red. It’s almost the same as why people like rainbows or any bright colors.

      Liked by 1 person

  2. I actually meant Jonghyun was more vain than Key, but I messed up again. :p I wouldn’t know about the lyrics to “Fire” because they AREN’T on here! SNAP TO IT! Nah, I’m only kidding. 😉
