The trend of “elves ends with notepaper” has recently become an interesting action created by Kpop idols. The idols will prepare a piece of paper to convey and wait until the ending to show to the audience. It is known that Key (SHINee) was the one who started this interesting trend; specifically, he held up the message “Minho will appear” at the end of the performance “Don’t Call Me.”
Thanks to that, a series of idols such as Kang Seung Yoon (Winner), WJSN … also “studied” and followed that made Kpop fans look forward to whenever the stage ends on music programs. Since then, the closing of this special form has also become the topic of discussion and received many positive responses on the general community pages.
However, a fan suddenly found out that G-Dragon really created this trend first. During a performance of the song “A Boy” in 2009, Big Bang’s leader wrote a volume of messages to fans. Although this form of “sending messages” is a bit different from the present, basically in G-Dragon’s performance, it is also considered the ending.
Before this unexpected discovery, netizens joked that the male idol is indeed ahead of its time and a trendsetter no matter what. They affirmed that if the male idol makes a comeback, he will definitely continue to be one of the artists who bring bold ideas to Kpop.
