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. I love the Take Me Higher era even though maknae Chan (my confirmed bias wrecker who has, in all honesty, made the wreck complete ~ 🤷🏻‍♀️) did not participate in this comeback due to his promotions as a member of the temporary boy group, UNB. The Wonderland album was a reissue that included three single albums the group had previously released and Take Me Higher was the vibrant, colorful and energetic title track. During this era, Donghun was sporting short spiky hair that was for a time it was a brilliant neon orange color. For the selca today though, a little toned down version.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 96

I must be in a whimsical and romantic mood because I felt like a boyfriend vibe DH selca for today. Inasmuch as many DH selcas can safely fall into that category, I am trying to create as an eclectic blend as possible. You know, the deadly selcas, the playful selcas, the introspective selcas, etc. Those can all serve as sub-categories of the BF selca to be sure, but there are definitely those captures that feel more boyfriend than others. Such is the case today with our sweet main vocal who may have been caught in the rain or even some blistering sun. Either way, would you care to share his umbrella?

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 88

 

I am sure it will come as no surprise that in preparation for this countdown series, I am often writing posts well in advance of their publish date. It’s collateral. I need to have a few in the draft bank as it were. So, it should come as no surprise that I wrote this particular DH Selca Magic post some time back in November. When I came across the picture I wanted to share, I jokingly told myself, ‘Ahhh, this picture is easy like a Sunday morning ~ wouldn’t it be great if Day 88 turned out to be a Sunday?‘ And here we are on Day 88 and a Sunday it is! Selca magic indeed.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 80

Is it really Day 80?!! Amazing, right? It is such an odd internal fight I have with myself, this march of time. On one hand, I wish time would move a little more slowly and I think when one arrives into middle age, that is the general consensus. Getting older at a rapid pace is not fun. However, when it comes to waiting for special days and events, the childlike wonder in us all wishes for time to pass quickly. Like a birthday, or Christmas and yes, a military discharge. You catch my drift. For this Day 80 of Donghun’s service, we get a selca magic moment capturing three of my favorite things: Donghun, his smile and the moon.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 72

In Greek mythology, sirens were dangerous winged creatures that used their enchanting music and singing voices to lure sailors to shipwreck on the islands they inhabited. They were even know to charm the wind. Although throughout history, sirens were generally female, there were also male sirens. And I think that is the concept A.C.E chose when they released their 5th mini album, Siren:Dawn. Dangerous creatures who lure with their enchanting music and singing voices. Seems about right. For this 72nd day of Donghun’s military service, I offer a DH Selca Magic capture of the dangerous kind. Since sirens are inherently dangerous, why not let Donghun choose a little violence?

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 64

When I sat down to write this post I was feeling a bit broody and introspective. And the background music whirling in my head was playing an old song from the late 1940’s, a classic tune that became a huge hit and synonymous with balladeer, Nat King Cole. The song is called Nature Boy and you may or may not be familiar, but it made me want to try and find a selca Donghun took while in nature or with some kind of nature back drop. Most of the pictures I found were taken of him and not necessarily by him. But I found something that will work.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 54

A little something playful for this DH Selca Magic post. Selcas run the gamut when it comes to poses, falling under various categories including: pensive or playful (or any other adjective that would fall within the realm of those two general categories). They could even fall into both simultaneously. I mean, there could be such a thing as ‘pensive with a pout’ ~ hehe. For the record and in my opinion, anything with a wink or a pout would most decisively be playful, even flirty. I offer playful today and leave you with the choice of captions: Good morning or Good night.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 46

Donghun is well known throughout the fandom for his expressively sad eyes. For me personally, I find them to be more gentle than sad, even when he opts for a pose that is more pouty or introspective. I have noticed that many of his selcas lean towards the more neutral. Not that he never turns the camera on himself when he is smiley or playful, he does (he has some wicked fine eye smiles). But, perhaps the depth of a capture that is more soft or solemn adds to his mystery. You know, those kind where you cannot fathom for a second what is on his mind, but are dying to know.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 38

As we are in the throes of autumn, I thought a soft autumn inspired selca would be a nice choice for a DH Selca Magic offering on this 38th day of his military service.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 29

So many selcas, and so many days ahead to share them! About 610 days at that. Well, it is a good thing that all of the members of A.C.E are prodigious selca masters. The only problem I face on Donghun’s Selca Magic days is which selca I will choose to share. Let’s see, there is pouty Donghun, sexy Donghun, playful Donghun, flirtatious Donghun, coy Donghun, etc. The list can go on and on. I like the idea of coy Donghun for today.
