This ONCE‘s life was headed down the wrong path until TWICE inspired him to make a U-turn and ditch his gangster ways.
Three years ago, Twitter user ゆうせい (@akmau010) was a bōsōzoku, a motorcycle-riding gangster who lived life in the fast lane.
Today, he is one of TWICE’s most devoted fans. After discovering the ultra-popular girl group, akmau010 realized that he could change for the better. He traded in his motorcycle for music and is proud of his new fanboy identity.
akmau010 tweeted his inspiring testimony:
Two years ago, I would not have dreamed of being a fan. Two years ago, I would have dreamed of an accelerator and a clutch, not a light stick, and a fan’s voice. It’s like changing your values and what you think is fun! First of all, don’t accept that you can only learn one way of thinking!
In just the first 5 days, his tweet was “liked” over 64,000 times and retweeted over 25,000 times.
This bōsōzoku-turned-fanboy is just one of the many Japanese fans TWICE has touched with their music.
But with the news of Nayeon’s stalker, ONCE have messaged him to see if he would go back to his Gangster ways…
And he even responded…
He obviously didn’t mean he would actually harm him, but he agrees with ONCE that what the stalker is doing is wrong.
I don't want to harm him!
However, I feel a little excited when I think he is also wrong in expressing his love.
