Looking at someone’s baby photos is somehow a very intimate thing. So, when celebrities share their younger moments, your heart just melts.
On 16th May, Caelan Moriarty (モリアティー慶怜) from the Japanese boy group INTERSECTION shared an old video of himself. The five-year old ‘s video was enough to make all his fans (and more) go “awww“.
Caelan recently took part in the Chinese survival show “Produce Camp 2021 (创造营2021)”. However, during the finale on 24th April, Caelan apparently did not make the cut. Although he was leading in all rankings earlier, his final rank was 12th, which puzzled and outraged fans. Many felt he should have been ranked higher, with some even saying the competition was rigged.
These fans were delighted however, when Caelan posted a video of his younger self on Weibo on 16th May. It showed a younger Caelan trying to throw a can into a dustbin without looking. The proud, almost smug look on his face when he made the shot endeared his fans further. “Guess how old I was when (this happened),” the caption read.
According to him, the video was from when he was 15. Apparently, the incident happened in his high school toilet. The video spurred fans to share some other photos of Caelan from his debut days. “(He looks) so young,” one commented. Another said, “(Caelan) too cute.”
It certainly is amazing for fans to be able to see their favourite celebrity’s younger days. Not only do they have the added advantage of experiencing something that’s supposed to be personal, they get to see how cute they looked!
