it turns out it was only 830am. the trip i signed up for begins in the morning, and not night time unlike what i know. i didn't know what's wrong with me to have thought it was at night. ughh.
so anyway we got driven to some of the places that lee jun ki visits and shot his drama at. first up was namjoo actor, his artiste company.
nah.. we couldn't go in. so i took a pic of all the japanese i came with.
next was the shooting area of Two Weeks. you have to climb a slopey park to reach it.
so here's the house he stayed at while he was running away in Two Weeks.
hi! i'm visiting where lee jun ki stepped on!
yup, he stayed at the basement here
that's me, all un-washed up. =_=
nice view from up here
and we travel downwards along the park. took the name of the place for whoever's interested. ok-il-5-gil.
can't stop taking selfies with this new samsung s6 00 gave me. it's so wide!
the shutter is awesomely fast too. so glad i have it.
and here's another spot where junki sat at. pirundaero. long walk upwards...!
and he sat here! the nice japanese i were with helped me take these pics. they are such big fans. one of them compiled a book on all the places to visit where junki shot his dramas at. i wish i could have the book...!!
we then visited the places he ate at while in the army. it's just at the 13th exit of Samgakji station, then walk straight ahead for 2mins to find it.
pasta place was closed though
but we get to eat the army stew!
after that, we headed back to the hotel around 11am. the next meeting time was 12, so i headed out to have brunch (again) with 00, who was just about to head out. he was down with fever so feeling very grumpy. settled on eating macdonald because he didn't find anything he wanted to eat.
we left around 1210, but to my surprise it wasn't straight to the event place. again, i might have been mistaken but i didn't know we were supposed to shop at myeong dong lotte dept for 3 hrs?!?!?! i hung around the wifi areas and played my game, but i had to conserve my batt for the event later. sighs. if only i brought my cards out to shop. we eventually left around 2pm to the event area, which was a secret place that the guides refused to tell. i got lost at the dept store but looking for lightning LV poster helped me find my way. lol.
it's not a secret, it's a public shopping mall godammit. and i think i've been here before.
some of the interiors!
ughhh kept trying to take w the poster behind but it was too bright to be captured. jeez..
but thank goodness i found my jap friends and they helped take a better one when there were lesser people.
i went to the convenience store for a hot drink as it was so cold and rainy outside, for about 30mins before the event started at 4pm.
i'm the first 5 rows! and the first level. yay!!
and i'm inside! i'm so close to the stage, it's just 5m away!
we can't take pics during the concert but i was so touched when junki appeared i cried T_T
such beautiful opening dance and voice. omg. i was super blown away. and i'm glad i made friends with the fan beside me, we were so excited!!! the communication between fans is so amazing sometimes when we love the same thing.
he did 4 songs - in jap, eng and korean (2x). he also did a cute 'up up down down' dance. we almost died.
there was interview on the recent movie he was shooting (bu bu jin xing), and he picked out lots where fans wrote things that they think about when they think of jun ki (for e.g. jun ki is _____). he would read and react to it in the cutest way.
there's a psychological test section where he answered questions to reveal his personality. seems like he's the down-to-earth guy who really look beneath the exteriors for his future wife. there was a question on what fragrance he likes and i picked orange. and those who did were made to put up their hands. i was quite sure i had eye contact with him because there was only less than 5 of us who picked it!! the thing is such fragrance symbolize a love of sexual things. oops. but but but... food. oh well, at least oppa noticed me?!? 8DDD
we also played a game where we answered A/B according to the questions. for e.g. junki likes A) short-haired girls B) long-haired girls. then the audience will put up their placards with the answer. the last standing winner gets a white day gift, which is a fragrance set.
so i remember that he likes - long hair, skirt, spectacles, double-eye lids, pinkish make-up, thick lips, girls in sneakers and casual wear, flower fragrance. not that i was gonna plastic myself to it, but good to know?! lol.
and towards the end we get to snap his photo!! spammmmmm
he's so cute he totally didn't look like he's 35!!!
i took some videos too. hehehe.
then it was the signing session. he signed or every single one of the 350 fans who attended, talked to them and shook our hands. he also gave out candies to every one as it was white day. it took almost 1.5hrs of waiting for my turn and my heart was beating like crazy. i wanted to say so many things to him but i think i stuttered too much and he didn't understand T_T i managed to show him my cosplay of iljimae and gonggil as well but i think he was too tired although he did say that it really looks the same! then i shook his fair hands and bade my love proclamation. i think i must have sounded like a crazy fan.
he seemed really tired as well. after the whole signing session, i bet his arms crumbled!!! but it was so awesome and touching that he remained smiling till the end. the whole event ended around 8pm, and i almost had a mini argument with 00 because he wanted to go back to yongin. he was at csl team lunch/dinner and i couldn't join cos i ended so late. in the end, he really went back but he returned to itaewon around 830pm, whereas i only reached the hotel around 9pm. seems he alighted at itaewon and didn't know how to go back to the hotel, and never thought to use google maps. rather, his headache pointed him to play more blaze instead of looking for the right path.
nothing to say. in any case i shall be contented with all my goodies tonight. and i've granted myself my final wish to meet lee jun ki. yayyyy~~~ mission accomplished~~~~ (",)
but the day was still far from over...
i had my dinner with 00 then we went back to the hotel. had a meal at the local korean store since 00 was craving traditional korean food. have to give in to a sick guy right.
about 12am, we got out to hongdae to club with his friends. i think we took an hour to look for the place cos he is such a road idiot.... =_= finally found it after tapping on some local wifi. the club is really worth going, i had a crazy good laugh. everyone seems to really go there to dance, and each have their own style of dancing. there was like taichi dance, zombie dance, electro dance, hand movement only dance... lol.
unfortunately i think i was too cold and sleepy so i snoozed for the whole bunch of it. we got out around 4am eventually to have some ramen, before heading home. super long and fulfilling day~!!
