We all know I’m a frequent sufferer of Second Lead Syndrome. I don’t really know why. I just have a soft spot for those oh-so-adorable guys who have so much boyfriend potential but, for whatever reason, are eternally friend-zoned. They’re like cute puppies rolling around in an abandoned cardboard box, doomed to watch all their litter-mates whisked away to homes while they watch. It’s a sad, sad thing and my heart goes out to them. Often.
Sitting down to watch a drama, I know it’s pretty much inevitable for me to suffer SLS to some degree but I never really expect to suffer while I’m watching MVs on YouTube. I mean we’re talking about music videos here, the only thing I usually have to worry about when I go to watch those is whether or not a bias is going to make my heart stop before the video ends.
Well today all that changed. In the few minutes I had to spare for a little MV watching I came across K.will’s “You Call It Romance” and gosh darn it, I got smacked upside the head by a sudden attack of SLS!
FROM. A. FRICKIN’. MUSIC. VIDEO.
Clearly, I have a problem.
So how do I solve this problem? What do I do to keep my poor heart from falling for these darn second leads? I mean the entire video is less than 4.5 minutes long and I fall so hard I feel the need to write a post about it!?! This is crazy! (Or maybe I’m just crazy… Yeah… let’s not go there, ‘kay?)
Maybe I should blame this on the fact this particular second lead is played by Monsta X’s Hyungwon. Which, let’s be honest, is probably the case. I mean have you seen this kid!?! He’s the epitome of adorable puppy so of course I’d fall for him! As a second, in a MV… Just so we’re clear. I already have a Monsta X bias… okay, biases… thank you very much! Goodness knows I don’t need another one! *ahem*
I guess until my heart turns to stone or stops beating altogether, I’m doomed to suffer at the hands of these stupid adorable seconds. *sigh* Oh well, the flutterings of my heart brought on by SLS remind me I’m alive and that’s a good thing. Isn’t it?
