The way they stand huddled together, the close relationship between them so obvious and genuine. CNU and Sandeul already on the verge of tears for being announced as one of the candidates for first place. The way they look down at their feet as the results are tallied, all silently praying that the moment they’ve been waiting for will finally arrive. The joy of the victory that causes them to burst into tears. The way Gongchan tries his best to stay strong and comfort his hyungs. The humility of Jinyoung’s choked up thank yous.
The feeling you get the moment they announce that they’re the first place contenders. Staring anxiously at your screen, be it TV, computer, laptop, tablet or phone - waiting for the results to be delivered. Clenching your fists as they start to reveal the results. Feeling your heart beat getting faster and faster as the final results are shown. Bursting into squeals and cries of happiness when they win, crying along just as hard as the members.
We feel what they feel, and we go through things together.
The meaning of “BANA” really makes sense now. We go through the good times and the bad together - laughing when they laugh, and crying when they cry - because we have fallen for each other.
I will be a BANA for life.
