Goodbye, Woojin

Today was a difficult day for my girls (and me as well)…

Some of my readers may find this post silly. If you do, please keep your comments to yourself out of respect of others’ feelings.

In January 2018, one of my girls was introduced to KPOP, specifically an up and coming new boy group named Stray Kids. She shared her interest with her sisters and me, and thus began our crazy KPOP adventure! Many of you may have even read some of my posts on what this adventure has meant to my little family of four.

We found out this morning that my girl’s favorite member, Woojin, is leaving the group. The first sound I heard from my Samantha this morning was her anguished cries as she wrestled to wrap her mind around the idea of no longer seeing her favorite music artist perform.

Y’all, it about ripped my heart in two…

Music is a pretty powerful thing. My girls and I have a deep passion for music. I credit my dad for this insane love for all kinds of music and the artists who create it.

So today my house has been in “musical mourning, coming to terms with the changes to be faced in losing a key member of a favorite group.

Whatever “personal circumstances” that lead Woojin to feel he needed to leave the group, I wish him the best and hope everything turns out well for him.

For my girls, especially Samantha, I know this will not be the last time there is grief involving music. It’s hard not to get attached to those who bring us joy through their artistry. As much as I hate that they must feel the sorrow, I’m thankful I had a chance to be there to help my girls through it.

How about you, readers? Does music impact you an emotional level? Have you ever had a day of musical mourning?

    I don’t think it’s ridiculous. Might seem weird but I listen to a lot of my own music.

  2. The second I heard the news I thought about you, it’s been a hard 48 hours for us STAYs. I have no doubt that the truth will come out in the end, but I’m not entirely sure any of us are ready for it, considering how these things work when it comes to Kpop. All we can infer from Chan’s message is that it wasn’t their decision…so I truly hope everyone is okay. I feel awful for Chan blaming himself, he takes so much pride in leading that group and the fact he apologised for not being able to protect 9 until the end…broke my heart. I really wish as fans there was more we could do. Thinking of you and I’m here if you need me. I really hope your girls are okay .xx

    1. It was sweet of you to think of us. 💙
      It’s been a really hard couple days in my house. The girls are having a hard time with the news. I honestly don’t think I’ve accepted it yet. It doesn’t seem real. We’ve been following them since January of 2018. We watched the survival show right after it ended, so we were a little late to the party but have been around almost since the very beginning. So it’s almost impossible to think of Stray Kids without Woojin.

      I think the hardest part of all of it is just not knowing what really happened. Did he really decide to leave on his own or did something happen and the company asked him to leave? It just doesn’t make any sense for him to leave in the middle of a comeback.

      Anyway I could ramble on forever. Thanks for understanding what I was sharing in my post and thank you for thinking of us. It means a lot. 💙💙💙💙

  3. Music makes me feel so much emotions, just all of them. It’s not silly, it’s all okay. I can understand you and your daughters so much. I hope they will feel better soon ❤️ Always here for you 🙏 I remember crying so much about the death of Avicii and also when Demi Lovato took an overdose. Music makes us feel so much because it mean so much to us. It’s a good thing to feel so much 💖
