Saerom has a striking appearance that demands attention. When I first saw her, I couldn’t take my eyes off of her. A lot of people probably felt the same, but as I learned more about her, I came to the conclusion that her strong stage presence and chic appearance are different from her real self, and that real Saerom is why I have grown to love her more than I could ever imagine.
In their Pops in Seoul interview, Saerom described herself as someone who seems like a cold, urban woman, but if you get to know her, she’s more of a warm, rural woman: thus she is a “warm, urban woman.” At that time, I wasn’t exactly sure of what she meant, but looking back at it now, it was the perfect description for her.
With an elegant appearance and those fox-like eyes, it is common for people to get intimidated by her at first, but beyond that exterior is a shy and friendly girl. She’s sensible, reliable and easygoing. Being the youngest in her family, she has this natural maknae-like charm that even her younger members find cute. I personally find her the cutest when she gets all excited over her favorite food.
She lights up the room with her contagious laugh, and when she smiles with those bright eyes… a certain warmth brews and a burst of colors fill my chest. That sweet smile can melt even the coldest of hearts. It radiates a light that can make anyone smile and feel attracted to her.
Apart from her megawatt smile, the way she views the world and how she shares her thoughts are more beautiful to me. Her words would make me stop and reflect on my life. Here are some that left an impact on me:
If anything worked out the way we wanted it to, we wouldn’t feel satisfied about the little things would we?? … No matter what the circumstance, there is no reason for us not to be happy.200107 Birthday Fancafe Post
flover~ I broke two eggs and two yolks came out from both, it made me so happy. If you share happy things you feel twice as happy, you know what I mean right?200805 Instagram Post
This particular egg post affected me a lot. It’s something so simple, yet I was moved. She gives off this charm and energy that makes me question how such a pure and precious person can exist in this world. That childlike heart is something most adults lose touch with while growing up, and to witness it in her makes me appreciate the things we often take for granted.
We’re living in a fast-paced world, but the photos and videos she shares after fromis_9 takes a break remind me to slow down and appreciate the gift of family and nature. Somehow, I could empathize with the healing feeling she felt when she took them. They’re calming and refreshing, allowing her to remain grounded and centered. These posts let me realize that it’s okay to take a break so that I can find myself again.
The idol life isn’t easy, and for Saerom to maintain this kind of mindset is something she can be proud of. It’s touching to know that she is comfortable to share her thoughts and feelings with us, allowing us to be part of her life journey. Her sincere words radiate an infectious positivity that allows us to see the world in a different light. I hope our “happiness evangelist” will continue to shine brightly and that her light will spread more across the world.
To end, I would like to thank her parents for raising such a beautiful child, both inside and out. Seeing a glimpse of her personal life through her Parents’ Day video made me realize that she grew up in such a warm and loving environment. Thank you Papa and Mama Lee for loving and nurturing Saerom to grow into who she is today, and for allowing us to love her and to experience her love.
Happy birthday, Saerom! We love you!
To my parents, I really… After meeting you, I felt and thought about it a lot. So today… As soon as I woke up in the morning, to my parents, I thanked them for giving birth to me and raising me well. They allowed me to grow into someone who receives a lot of love from people, so I thanked them. How would I have felt these emotions if it weren’t for the fans? Thank you so much.2019 Saerom Birthday V LIVE
