Brilliant! Yes! A nice solo and now no pas de deux. Oh, it’s Christmas!
I wasn’t going to reblog this but then GODTISS
I would have reblogged this anyway.
Hello! This is a fan account of U-KISS’ Showcase and Fan Party in Jakarta, 27 April 2013. This fan account will be a little bit emotional, so please bear with me XD
First, let me tell you the story of how the aforementioned showcase got postponed (almost) twice. We were told that U-KISS will be holding the showcase + fan party on February first and second. However, due to the severe flood in Jakarta, it couldn’t be done. Instead, Soohyun and Kevin visited the children that were affected by the disaster and spent a short quality times with them. We were told about the postponement six days before D-day. So it was from D-6 to D-90. Sad, isn’t it? But I do understand the reason, and good things come to those who wait, believe me.
And then after waiting for 84 days, I was finally on D-6 again when U-KISS International twitter account announced that the showcase would be postponed AGAIN. Imagine how mad I was that day. I already booked a hotel room because I couldn’t afford going back and forth from 26 to 27 April. Strange thing was that the promoter didn’t say a thing about the postponement and U-KISS members themselves were very quiet about it. Acting based on instinct, I didn’t refund my ticket yet although I canceled the hotel room. On D-3, Indonesian Kiss Me received a blessing. The showcase will be resumed as per scheduled, although it was made to be one day on 27 instead of 26 and 27. I was more than happy already. Sad thing is that Hoon couldn’t participate. I hope to see him in another chance!
So now let’s begin my adventure on that magical day. I arrived at the venue at 9.30 AM and waited in (short) line to redeem my ticket. I bought the “Kiss Me Fansign” ticket, by the way.
Redeeming done, I saw many fans queued already. Let me tell you that I am not that kind of fan that needs to be so close to my idol. The promoter said that the fansigning line will be based on queuing line, but I don’t care. XD Me and two of my friends even went as far as another mall to wait until the gate opened which was at 2 PM. We went back to the venue at 1.30 and waited. Turned out that the press conference wasn’t finished yet, so it wasn’t until three that I got the chance to enter. And because the sponsor is a company that is closely related to my friend, I was the third, I repeat, THIRD person to see U-KISS up close that day.
They were sitting in this order: Kevin, Dongho, Eli, Kiseop, AJ, Soohyun.
When I saw them sitting there, I went blank. I squeezed my friend’s hand so tight. They are handsome, people. HANDSOME. My gaze was fixed on Kiseop all the time. His face is so small and pristine and… oh my God, handsome! My brain was still loading when I arrived in front of Kevin and Dongho, though. Kevin’s face is so… western? XD His voice is so smooth. Dongho’s smile is very manly. Eli… I didn’t pay quiet attention to him because Kiseop was sitting right beside him. I’m so sorry, Eli, you’re cool XD
I need to start a new paragraph for Kiseop. Just because he’s special. My heart whispered, “Finally!” when I reached him. He retrieved my paper, looked at me, smiled, and signed. I said to myself, “Here goes nothing” and then I leaned down and said, “Oppa, saranghae!” Shyly, he smiled, nodded while looking on my paper, and said, “Saranghae, too.” in that unique voice of his. My God, I am lucky.
Beside him was AJ. So I was staring at his bright yellow hair when he suddenly, suddenly, looked up so fast, lifted his hand in a greeting, and said, “Hi!” in a very low voice. I almost died. I awkwardly replied with another hi and said thank you. Next is Soohyun. His smile is so bright. He signed my paper and saw my Neverland album (because the promoter said that we have to bring our own U-KISS stuff to be signed but instead, they gave us a blank paper =_=). He said, “Wow, Neverland!” I was speechless and I said, “Yes.” He replied, “Good!” I kept on beaming on him and he stared at my eyes. It could’ve just been an effect of a dreamy-like moment, but he stared at me for so long even after I moved aside. And I dare to say that it was a rare moment where someone, in-a-way stranger, stared at me for the longest time. He could’ve just been thinking that I am crazy for grinning idiotically. Or maybe he thought I’m gorgeous because I confess that I polished my make-up for an uncountable times that day *hides*
I was flying. My hands trembled, my legs trembled.
I met them. I finally did, after three years of dreaming.
And Kiseop is so handsome.
Anyway, onto the next surreal-like experience XD I got to take a group photo (don’t ask me how; let’s just say good things come to those who wait alright XD). I saw them again, for the second time that day. My spot wasn’t so close to them when they took the photo, but when I got up, I wanted to wave at Kiseop but someone was in the way so I tried to catch another prey(?) which happened to be AJ with his shiny yellow hair that is so attractive. I waved at him and he waved back, and then Kiseop and Soohyun also waved back. I will die a happy woman. They returned to their waiting room and so did I. When they were on the stairs, they waved again and Soohyun waved at me *dies*
I shall repeat, people; Kiseop is so handsome.
Next XD They were supposed to be bringing the sponsor’s banner during the photo group, but the promoter suddenly didn’t allow them to. So… Me and three of my friends were told that we could take another photo with only nine fans.
I am so lucky.
So before the showcase started, I saw them again. Soohyun is talkative and very active. He seems to have energy oozing out of him XD They stood in a line and the promoter said we could stand in front of our favorite member. So I immediately went to Kiseop. I looked back and saw a glorious sight which was his neck. God he’s so tall. I said, “You’re so tall!” and to make him understand more, I lifted my hand to show the difference in our height. The top of my head barely reached his chin. He smiled but stared rather blankly at me. (At my eyes! We were staring at each other! God above help me! *dies*) Whether he didn’t understand or I was too cute *HIDES* Anyway, I again said to myself, “Here goes nothing!” I blew a kiss and said “I love you!” RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM. BARELY TWENTY CENTIMETERS AWAY.
I expected him to grin and be confident and/or politely say thank you, but only one happened; he said thank you.
In a very shy smile.
While looking down like a little boy being teased about having his first girlfriend.
He is so adorable.
So all of us sat on our knees, held the banner, and took a very joyous photo with me sitting in front of Kiseop. When it’s over, I said thank you and waved a lot.
In conclusion, I didn’t get any skinship because I was too focused on Kiseop. He was shy which made me feel afraid to do skinship; I thought they weren’t allowed to but after listening to my friends’ story about their skinship, I feel kinda stupid. I don’t really care though, Kiseop’s shyness worth more than any skinship would ever do <3 Come to think of it; I am probably the one with the most eye contact because Soohyun stared at me for a few seconds too during the second group photo. I felt like a sunflower that day; wherever Kiseop walked, my gaze followed. I just can’t take my eyes off him. Even during the first group photo, I stared back a few times before they took the photo.
Then the showcase started. I have no other words about this, though. They are amazing. No one went off-tune. Kiseop improves so much. It could’ve been my imagination or simply not me, but during “Without You”, he shot his love arrow to my direction at the same time I shot mine to him. And he pointed at my direction when he sang, “You are my obsession”. Let me believe in my own imagination, please because it feels too real to be an imagination :’D I swear I looked back into his eyes although my seat was a bit far (but I was standing in the leftmost and on top, so he probably could see me).
And that concludes my rather messy fan account. There are many details, but I can’t go through all of them XD They sang Without You, uBEAT’s Should’ve Treated You Better, Remember, Obsession, Someday, ManManHani, and Lifetime for KISSME.
U-KISS is polite. They are kind, they smile all the time, they give the best for Kiss Me.
And Kiseop is so handsome and cute <3
(Kiseop changes his signature? I love this one better :D)
My little brother got into outer space and stuff so my step-mom bought him a place mat with all the planets on it. When I first saw it, I was upset, because it was newer and so Pluto wasn’t labeled. I was about to say something when I noticed something…
Pluto is there.
The artist remembered Pluto.
The artist drew Pluto crying.
MBLAQ 101: How to have a successful bromance. ver. 1
anyone else notice this? o:
Hi, everyone! I’m back from a magical week with MBLAQ in Jakarta!
Sooo I’m one of 500 other lucky A+ that got to have a mini skinship with MBLAQ, which was a high-five. Let’s just skip the moment how I found out that I am one of those people, okay? (FYI, I was totally spazzing. XD I didn’t really have high expectation since usually I don’t have a good luck. But hey, God works in a mysterious way.)
And since the event is located in Indonesia, I’ll do my (first ever) fanaccount in Indonesian! Enjoy!
*If you’re the type to get jealous easily, I recommend you to stop reading now. XD*
Jadi event Hi5 ini diadakan sehari sebelum konser mereka, yang berarti tanggal 29 Juni. Awalnya rada deg2an juga karena gw belom tuker voucher dan pas sampe sana dibilangnya belum ada A+ yg boleh naik ke lantai tiga tempat MEIS berada. Tapi long story short, akhirnya gw berhasil ngantri bersama A+ lainnya yang dikasih nomer urut.
Dapet nomer 87 :3
Hi5 ini dibagi jadi dua kelompok, nomer 1-250 dan 251-500. Tepatnya gw ga tau ruangannya itu beda apa ngga, karena gw dapet kloter pertama dan bener2 udah ga bisa mikirin apa pun selain MBLAQ. XD
Ini salah satu sudut ruangan tempat Hi5 :D
Proses ngantri dari lantai 1 ke lantai 3, dan di depan ruangan Hi5 lumayan lama, kira2 dari jam setengah tiga kita mulai ngantri dari lantai 1, pelan2 dibawa ke lantai 3, dan boleh masuk sekitar jam setengah lima. MBLAQ sendiri agak telat (gapapa kok Oppa, tiga jam pun kutunggu XD) dan mereka baru dateng sekitar jam 5 lewat 10. Selama itu kita diputerin lagu MBLAQ (yg banyak diulang2), dan kita nyanyi bareng. Lumayan lah ya, biar panas yg penting have fun.
Ini panggung kecilnya :D
Acara Hi5 ini bener2 kilat, karena MBLAQ baru selesai press conference dan harus istirahat buat konser besoknya.
Nah, dimulailah spazzing kita, kawan-kawan.
A+ udah ada feeling mereka bakalan masuk bentar lagi (setelah di PHPin oleh EO yang buka-tutup pintu, bikin kita teriak2 percuma =.=). Kita udah siap kamera (kita semua duduk dempet2an di lantai), dan pas mereka masuk…
JENG JENG JENG….
Urutannya dari yang pertama masuk sampe terakhir: Seungho, Cheondoong, G.O, Mir, Joon. Astaga, gw emg udh ga punya bias di MBLAQ (dalam arti gw suka banget banget banget sama mereka itu sama rata karena mereka berlima sama2 daebak-nya), tapi jujur paling kaget liat Ijun. Ya maklumlah, baru pertama kali ini liat idol dari jarak sedekat itu XD (kira-kira 4-5 meter deh), plus gw udh nunggu2 pengen liat mereka dari deket selama dua tahun T^T.
Terus, dalam keadaan A+ masih belom bisa tenang, mereka introduction, awalnya sama-sama. Pokoknya awalnya mereka bilang “apa kabar”, tapi lanjutannya entah mereka bilang “We are MBLAQ!” atau “Kami MBLAQ!” ga tau deh, suasana masih hyped banget. Udah gitu mereka satu2 introduction lagi, bilang “Apa kabar! Nama saya –nama mereka masing2-!” Tiap kali mereka ngomong begitu, kita teriakin bareng2. XD
Abis itu ada chit-chat dikit, mereka ditanya2 tentang konser, yg jawab Seungho. Intinya Seungho bilang A+ Indonesia bisa liat performance2 yg belum pernah diliat di mana pun. Asyiiik~
And theeeen the most awaited moment! Hi5 with MBLAQ! Omaigat itu yg namanya gw udah gemeteran dari atas sampe bawah, ga bisa berenti2 ngeremes pundak temen di sebelah gw (yg baru kenalan saat itu juga berhubung gw dateng sendirian XD), dan akhirnya… Oh God… sampailah gw di depan mereka.
SEUNGHO. MATANYA TWINKLE TWINKLE BANJJAK BANJJAK NUNI BUSYEO.
CHEON DOONG. PIPINYA TEMBEM KAYAK BAK PAO(?), IMUT BUANGET.
G.O. SOPAN DAN RAMAHNYA TOP CLASS. GA DI KAMERA GA ASLINYA SAMA2 GANTENG.
MIR. INI ABANG SATU GANTENGNYA POOOOOLLLLL, LEBIH GANTENG DARIPADA DI KAMERA.
IJUN. YA TUHAAAAN SENYUMNYAAAA BANJJAK BANJJAK NUNI BUSYEO *_*
Gw ga bisa berkata apa2 lagi di depan mereka selain panggilin mereka satu2 sambil nyengir gede. XD (Entah knp kyknya Mir lg rada bete, mungkin kecapean ya ;_;)
Cuma sebentar, tapi efeknya luar biasa. Begitu turun dari panggung kecil itu, gemeterannya lebih2 lagi. Banyak A+ yg nangis terharu, tapi gw terlalu bahagia untuk nangis. XD Sebelum cuci tangan peper2 dulu dong ke pipi :3
A+ yg udah Hi5 kembali ke belakang, terus pelan2 maju ke tempat semula. Pas udah sampe tempat asal, gw pinjem teropong temen gw tadi, dan kagetnya naujubileh(?) pas liat muka Seungho. Terus gw pelototin deh tuh satu2 dari Seungho sampe Ijun. Bener2 banjjak banjjak nuni busyeo mereka semua *_* Awalnya sih gw niatnya pengen liat 180 cm itu segimana, biar bisa ngira2 Kiseop eye-levelnya itu segimana. Tapi niat itu terlupakan dengan adanya tampang2 mereka yg banjjak banjjak nuni busyeo *_* Liat Kiseop mah bisa nanti deh ya langsung aja orangnya yg asli :3 *amiiiiin*
Acara Hi5 pun selesai dengan sebegitu cepatnya ;_; Setelah dadah2 plus Cheondoong yg ngasih heart-shape ke kita, mereka langsung keluar, buat pindah ruangan ke A+ kelompok lain mungkin ya. Kita jg disuruh keluar, dan dunia bagaikan berseri, saudara-saudari. Sampe sekarang gw masih terbayang Seungho yg ngangguk senyum dan Ijun yg nyengir pas gw panggil oppa, juga senyum imut Cheondoong dan anggukan sopan G.O (di mana dia yg paling nunduk rendah buat nyesuain badan kita yg pendek2 XD) dan wajah ganteng Mir *_* Kehangatan(?) dan ketegasan(?) tangan mereka juga masih terasa T^T
Dan baru sehari setelah konser, A+ yg satu ini udah kangen banget liat mereka ;_; Oppa2, dateng lagi yaaa, jangan kapok sm A+ Indonesia atau apa pun yg dr Indonesia XD ^.^
