Great news! You did it again, well done with all your very up to date info and diligent hardwork. I am most grateful. It's a little late to say "Happy Leader's Day" and I wonder how would he be one year from now. Will he reach his peak yet in a healthier state? He still have a long way to go at only 23. Probably he will hit his peak at 25 to 27. You just never know. I think he will be one of those rare artiste to make it internationally looking at the way how things are going. I am also glad that you don't just keep putting Kyu's photos but also include the rest but I only have eyes for the LEADER.

Well, did I keep putting up Kyu's photo? Hmm.... maybe it is because all in a sudden the forums I visited are flooding with his photographs.

Don't worry, I would not just focus on one member only (though all of you by now should know who is my fav ^^). This is a SS501UFO but not Hyun Joong/Young Saeng/Kyu Jong/Jung Min/Hyung Joon UFO... so every members will have equal share. I will post ALL news related to all member whenever I see it!

Actually... I like all of them. Each of them have their own unique charm. Of course there is a bigger portion for one of them. (^.*)

Jericho said...

Yeah, must be seeing too many Kyu's photos everywhere for the past few days till it's like overkill. Not complaining and better keep my own opinions to myself or else I'd get kicked out.

Ann said...

Thanks for all the updates, Mini UFO! I'm your fan! Hehehe!
I love to hear all the news about Leader! (but not like "He's sick... Or fained") Seeing him OK now I'm so so glad. Hope he'll take his time off to rest well!

Mini UFO said...

Hi Jericho,

Don't worry, I won't kick you out! (Anyway I can't :P)

Kyu is sweet and gentle and he is growing up to be more and more manly recently, this is why he has a group of fans following him.

Well, I hope to see more photographs of the rest of the boys also. :)

Hi Ann,

What to do when we have a leader that aspires to be the UNIVERSE star! Just hope that he will have UNIVERSE best health also! Then all the fans no need to worry about him!

Jericho said...

Leader gotta have what it takes to be an Universal Star but he's physically quite weak. HK pop stars can hold consecutively 20+ nights of concerts in one go and act in movies too with no problem plus commercials, interviews, fly here and there etc etc.

Ann said...

Hi Mini UFO,
I could not agree more! Be healthy Leader!
Though all 501 members are my idols, my most favorite one is Leader! I's so worried last wk for he caught "the Flu". I'm relieved that he's doing OK. Somehow, I wonder if he'll take enough time to rest. Or else ):
Any way, take care leader, then come back healthy and strong!
