You wanna know something?
I was thinking, about how I was kinda miffed about Sungmin and and Eunhyuk participating in this album. But now that I think about it, it provides a kinda cool opportunity for Fan Fic writers.
I mean, things have got to be different for M than the regular super junior. They aren't in their country, far away from their family and friends in a place where they don't know many people and barely speak the language. It stands to reason that they'd developed different rituals and habits while in M, than with regular super junior. They have to take on different responsibilties, more I think than normal, simply because there are less people to split the work among, and they have to work extra hard to cross the language and culture barrier. and living away from their friends and family and their home in close quarters with 6 other boys, it's almost inevitable that people who may not have been close while in korea will intereact and be closer while in china, simply as a coping mechanism, to share the experience with someone who knows exactly how you feel, someone who knows the homesickness, and the loneliness, and the strain of being out of your element and in a strange and unfamiliar place.
And these things, they might not transfer back when the boys are in super junior in any overt fashion, more than likely just kinda... lying dormant in a way, just an undercurrent in the daily interaction, until they return to M and they revert back to what works for them, which may not be what the others in Super Junior are used to, because even in the sub-groups of the boys who stayed in korea, they stayed in Korea , and that changes quite a bit.
But Sungmin and Eunhyuk, they are coming right into the middle of this, having to find their own coping mechanisms, find their own place, and their own relationships with their fellow members, because they won't really know anyone besides the members and their managers now will they? By this time the regular SJ-M has to have made some connections in china, have grown used to the culture and language in manner that Sungmin and Eunhyuk have yet to. So for Eunhyuk and Sungmin, its gotta be weird, almost like an alternate dimension of somehting.
Not to mention, They have unique experience of being able to observe and full appreciate the subtle, or not so subtle differences between super junior and Super Junior-M, from knowing them when they were in super junior, their habits and mannerisms, who they hung out with, what they normally handled at work, ect, when they were in Super junior, and new roles that they take when in M, the differences in interactions, the in jokes, the routines, things that maybe they were aware of before, from talking on the phone or after M's returns to Korea, but Never fully saw and witnessed, much less fully under stood.
It's really cool time to be a Eunhyuk or Sungmin writer, a great chance to delve not only into them, but their relationship with the M members and the Dynamics of M as whole.
I wish I felt confident enough to do it myself, but I don't write either of them, only Donghae and HanGeng and sometimes Siwon. and they won't have the same impact as writing from the POV of Eunhyuk or Sungmin who have one foot in Korea and a toe-hold in China, and aren't quite sure where to put their foot next. The rest of M have found fairly solid foundation to stand on by this point. not so for Sungmin and Eunhyuk, and it'll be interesting to see where they end up standing in the end.
