Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 61

I wish I could say that what happens on VLive, stays on VLive but the entire MO of our fave artists going live on their respective VLive channels is getting the opportunity to be spontaneous and, for the most part, unscripted. I have no doubt that rookie groups are diligently watched over during any kind of live broadcast. However from their earliest days, I have always got the impression that A.C.E has had a great deal of autonomy, and I am confident Beat knows they would never go completely off the rails during a live broadcast! In the VLive clip I share today, Donghun gets the 411 from fans during his June 4, 2019 VLive that leader Jun not only ate Donghun’s jellies, he also rummaged through his bag. How will Dong Dong retaliate?!

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 60

I knew our patience would be rewarded. On the eve of his 60th day of service, our beloved main vocal updated his Instagram account. What is so nice about public service is the tiny bit of leniency enlistees get when it comes to using their SNS accounts. True, Donghun can’t be posting those multiple selcas on the various A.C.E SNS accounts, but his personal one is where he can quietly stay in touch. On November 20, he updated with a series of pictures which included ones of himself.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 59

I have a simple mission with the DH One Shots and that is to quickly with great economy offer a variety of Donghun looks, attitudes, moods, styles and fashion. He hit all five of those nouns gloriously during the HJZM:The Butterfly Phantasy era. And with lethal acuity I might add. So for this Day 59 One Shot gif, one of my absolute favorite look, attitude, mood, style and fashion.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 58

Back on Day 9 I was all swoony, hearts-in-eyes over producer Donghun and his self-composed track, Story from the Siren:Dawn EP. I am revisiting the swoon today to share more about the story behind Story. On July 4, 2021, Donghun fired up A.C.E’s VLive channel to chat with fans. During that broadcast, he talked about about Story.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 55

A.C.E busking in the streets of Yeouido covering Adele? I’d say that is a good way to usher in this 55th day of Donghun’s military service. And, another great way to hear Donghun flex his vocal chops. A.C.E debuted on May 23, 2017 and have remained on the busking circuit since. On September 15, 2017 they were in Yeouido, performing, singing and doing what they do best, connecting with fans.

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 52

Ok, I will agree that Donghun in white is quite angelic. And this look is just on point. The beret, the jewels, the overall style, everything. He is just working this fit gloriously. This is how he showed up to an A.C.E fan sign on November 15, 2019. In fact, everyone in the group was a vision in white. If you are not familiar with A.C.E’s Slow Dive, then perhaps a nice introduction will be this focused Donghun cam from the fan sign.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 49

It has been quite interesting watching our favorite idols navigate these strange days of having to connect with fans remotely. Online concerts where audiences were broadcast on jumbotron-like screens that served as a backdrop to the empty studio and/or venue stages, their only interaction coming via a live chatroom the hosting platform provided to both artists and fans. Sure, they adjusted. We adjusted. Uploading pictures on various sns accounts available seemed to ramp up and so did live broadcasts. It’s true our favorite artists had to work extra special hard to stay in touch. A.C.E, who have always worked hard to maintain a steady connection with their Choice, are by far perhaps one of the most entertaining while doing so. Take for example, a quiet night of sharing a dessert that turned into an arm wrestling match between Donghun, Jun and Chan.

Waiting For Donghun ~ Day 48

I thought I would drop a little DH fan art today. Something from the Under Cover era from Philippines digital artist, Violetwister. Under Cover is an aggressive track that really showcases the innate strength of A.C.E as vocalists, rappers and dancers. Even so, Violetwister brings a soft touch to our powerful main vocal with her Under Cover inspired art.

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.
