As fans, we are here to genuinely support our favorite groups. We buy their albums, listen to their songs, attend their concerts, and vote for them at polls. But there will always be that one member that has a special place in our heart. In fandom speak, we call them “bias.” But to others, they are a bit more than “just a bias.”
They are a source of inspiration, a name that brings us to smiles, a face that sets our days perfectly right. While they are miles away from us, even if they do not know us—yes, this reality check hurts—it’s just difficult to not fall for them, especially when they are perfect, adorable, funny, and just everything we need (and also want).
And so a few weeks ago, KStreetManila gave our readers a chance to let out these feelings of love! We asked people “If you were to write a love letter to your bias, what would it say?”
As expected, we got the sweetest, cheesiest, and even most unique confessions in our inbox! We may be a little late for Valentine’s Day but who cares, everyday can be Valentine’s right? So without further ado, here are our top picks!
At first glance, I didn’t notice you. I liked you but you weren’t anything special to me. When did you start becoming someone irreplaceable in my heart?
I got so many things to say, I don’t even know where to start but I’ll try my very best.
I want you to know that I like you not because of how musically gifted you are, or how great you can dance, those are just bonuses. I started to notice how hardworking you are, how you always give your best in everything you do. How you always interact with your members, how you love them, how you force yourself not to cry even when tears are already threatening to fall from your eyes. How you try to be strong even if you’re tired and exhausted from all the work you did. I don’t think you’re funny, but you still make me laugh. I hate it when you cry because I know I would cry too, even if I don’t want to. I adore you too much and just when I think it is not possible to like you more, a second ticks off the clock, and I discover that I end up liking you more than ever before.
I realize just how much I’m clinging on you that it’s starting to hurt. How is it that liking you can be so wonderful, and yet hurt so badly? I try to let go but do you know what it is like to feel your heart inside you, and yet not feel it beat?
There are questions that pops into my mind. They scare me because I don’t have answers for them. “Is this feeling more than admiration?” “Do I love you?” I don’t know how to answer that. I don’t even know if I ever want to answer it because I don’t want to fall deeper, falling deeper will just make it harder for me to let you go someday.
Yet, my feelings for you just continues to mature, growing beyond the realm of my heart, beyond the realm of reality. You give so freely to everyone you know in such a loving way. It just makes me fall a lot more deeper!
Sometimes i even ask myself. “Why do you like him? He doesn’t even know you!” but still, I can’t help myself.
I try to put this feeling into words, but fail miserably. This feeling of being both scared and at peace, of having anxiousness and a sense of calm, is a feeling that I have never imagined one could have at the same time. I have no other words to describe how you make me feel. No words, no actions could even come close.
All I know is that even if all the years have gone by, even if i get old and wrinkly, even if I won’t be the same woman who blushes at the sight of your dimples, who giggles every time she see’s you do something stupid, who cries every time she see’s you cry, who got her heart capture by you…
You will always have a special place in my heart.
I will always be here thinking about you, like I always do.
