Back on Day 17, we had a taste of The Tao of Donghun by way of an A.C.E Diary clip. Donghun imparted some thoughtful wisdom to a fan who was self-doubting her decision to join a dance club after entering university. In his gentle and wise way, Donghun encouraged the fan to continue doing what she loved: dance. Moreover, he reminded her to not let anyone decide her value, her ability, her motivation or dreams except herself. He was so encouraging and knew a thing or two about feeling less than adequate when it comes to dancing because it was something that he himself began to learn late in his idol career. In the segment for today, he takes on the question of how to deal with moments of inactivity, malaise or, as the fan writes, No Fun Period. This one is particularly cute and Donghun again has some thoughtful words of encouragement and wisdom to impart. Let’s have a look and listen.
One of the best things about this segment is how much Donghun enjoyed the story sent in by an inquiring Choice and her desire to find a way to combat no fun periods without . . . alcohol. Oh my. But, Dongun (as expected) has some good advice.
Hehehehe . . . so cute!! I found myself really wanting to meet and hang out with this Choice. She sounds quirky and fun. And, I totally get what she is talking about. Sometimes when malaise sets in it is difficult to find a way out. I think Donghun’s suggestion to use that no fun period time for self-development and in that time of self-development perhaps become closer to achieving a dream. To think about things that are fun and interesting, and to use that time to pursue those fun and interesting things. I absolutely love when he says, ‘alcohol is not your dream, right?‘
He has a point and his advice is really sound. And, indeed A.C.E can turn any no fun period into a fun period. Periodt.
