Waiting For Donghun ~ Celebrating Under 300 Days! (Day 340)

Another milestone!! Yes, Donghun officially has under 300 days remaining in is his military service! Hoorah! These baby steps are adding up, aren’t they? For today, a Donghun Selca Magic moment. I feel like a selca from the Take Me Higher era and was a little inspired by a line from the song that read, ‘. . .the prettiest flower is always so far away.’ Yes, our pretty flower Donghun may seem far away, but discharge day is indeed getting closer.

Similarly, a rookie group would need strength and fortitude to survive a saturated industry. And not only to survive, but to break through and shine with something different and new. Yes, that is what Cactus did. It was different and our five aces brought along with it a vibe and style not really seen in K-pop at that time.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 26

I cannot remember exactly when the ASMR craze started but I think it was somewhere around 2018 or so. It seemed everyone jumped on the amplified whisper bandwagon, including some of our favorite K-pop groups. A.C.E was no exception offering up some fun ASMR moments via their VLive channel which included an ASMR reading of song lyrics. Back in February 2020, Donghun took the ASMR mic and shared a reading of the groups second single release following debut, Callin’.
