After losing 89.000 with Interpark and losing almost all my luggage with City Air Limousine, I realized that maybe Seoul is not the city for me. It didn’t treat me well. Anyway, the concert at the end of the trip saved it all. I got to see SG with my own eyes and met a lot of lovely Airens.
So I’ll start my concert experience with hope of lifting up my mood right at this moment! Actually most of this was typed on my plane back home. Recalling the concert is like the only thing I can do to forget about the loss I faced.
So on the day of the concert, I started at 11:30 from Mia to Insadong, wanting to buy some small gifts for people at home. However, when I reached Mia station, one international Airen already called and asked if I wanted to meet up with Natt in Insadong!! I still don’t know who called me at that time, I thought it was Li yieng but it didn’t sound like her voice, so I thought it must be Nikki, but it didn’t seem to be her either LOL Anyway, I texted Li yieng; and she, Lilian, Natt and another Thai fan are all having lunch together near Anguk station. What a coincidence, so we decided to go to the venue together at 1:30pm from Anguk. Actually, I was about to text Li yieng before to make sure how to get to the venue. How lucky I came with them, they already came the day before yesterday to stalk the rehearal. We are all excited on the subway, Lilian told me how they managed to get into the stadium the day before and how they heard his voice and saw him from far away.
Finally, we reach Olympic Park station, seeing many other fans coming to the concert as well. A lot of them are ajummas holding big posters of SG LOL
We walked together through the park until seeing the stadium and a big banner with his FUBU photo outside.
Of course, the next thing that any fangirl can do is to take photos with his banner LOL.
Outside the stadium, there were several booths, one is for The Saem display, and they give samples and free big posters to fans. One booth was selling goodies including bags, shirts, cups, light sticks… However, I didn’t really pay attention to any of these booths, the one I looked for the most is Interpark.
While waiting for Interpark to start delivering tickets at 3pm, we hung around, chatting and recognizing. How wonderful I met tryp, yon, purple1n2d, kr4ever and some more. SG fans are all so nice, especially the old unnies, it’s like they all wanted to take care of and help younger fans. I hope some of them are not too upset when reading these lines, seeing that I’m calling them old unnies LOL
Natt is looking for the fanclub to get her tickets, tryp is looking for Chine Café, and I went arguing with Interpark! As I predicted, no cancellation had been made!! So I got 2 tickets, huh? I and Lisa intend to sell off but actually we didn’t have enough patience and passion to sell, so we ended up throwing away one R- sided ticket and one S-middle ticket. Anyway, all others got VIP ticket while there are only I and Nikki got R. Waiting for DC eonni outside GS25 supermaket get my ticket, I and Nikki encouraged each other and cursed Interpark. Then I realized that I hadn’t got the free big Saem poster, I went asking for one but they had no more! Aww, would I really come home without any goodies? I spent 99.000 won for the new ticket so I have no more money for the goodies, except for the free stuff.
When I came back to GS25, DC eonni called! She brought my ticket and gave us about ten big Saem posters. Lilian gave me 4, they’re damn big! But I think ppl at home must love it a lot, so let’s take them.
And guess what!! One big surprise of the day is I got VIP ticket, not R! Even though DC eonni has told me it’s VIP, I saw the price is 99.000won so I automatically thought it’s R only. And it’s the Floor ticket, I paid double, huh? LOL
Finally Nikki is like the only one who got R-ticket, but she’s still very happy I didn’t know what to do besides go asking the fanclub what I can get with a VIP. It’s a cheering towel, but ppl said I should get from DC LSG! Anyway, not important.
It’s already a quarter past 5 when I received my ticket, so I chatted with others a little more outside and then quickly joined the line for Floor/VIP.
The stadium was smaller than I thought! But with the experience with KBS front stairs, I soon realized that things always look bigger in cameras LOL.
I tried to look for Lilian and Li yieng but couldn’t find them, finally finding out that they’re besides the stage! More “VIP” than me :>> So I ended up sitting alone for the whole concert.
They showed his CFs on the screens. I had never been into his dance in KB Card CF, so I think I watched it only once in the past… but after watching it for several times there, I thought “not too bad” LOL
His commercial smile made ppl “oh, ah” as usual; but it’s not until 20min past 6 that the concert started.
They showed a screen from “Brilliant Legacy” for a few seconds then and X sign, then the screen from 1N2D, X, MGIG, X only when the screen when he sang norebang in the bus during 1N2D school trip then “O” sign appeared. Haha, ok, forget Hwan, forget Seunggi the MC, forget Daewoong, let’s enjoy Seunggi the Singer, huh? LOL
Then the cast of 1N2D appeared on the main screen to introduce and asked if people were ready or not; then the countdown was so thrilling LOL
