29/7 @ Haneda Airport
Hmmm…where should I start…before we depart for Tokyo, we tried to ask around for the flight details of JK oppa, but did not manage to find out anything. Only information I get is that most likely he’ll arrive Tokyo on Fri 29/7….but which airport (Narita or Haneda?), what time (as there are many flights and airlines from Seoul to Tokyo a day)?? And we thought to ourselves….we just gonna see him on the fanmeet day……………
However, on thursday night, we tried again to ask around from several sources if there’s any update on the flights. Too bad though, no one was able to tell us. And in the end we decided, Rollingbee to send a tweet message to Mikey, he might be able to advise us as he’s always on twitter …..and so we tried. Thankfully, not long after her post, she got a reply from Mikey that they will be on the 12.10pm flight from Seoul to Tokyo, but he is not sure which airport they will arrived at. So, we start to google for the departure flights from Seoul to Tokyo at 12.10pm…..and we found it!! JAL92 will land at Haneda , it was already 2 or 3am in the morning and we tried to inform the other group of fans staying at the other ryokan and also few Japanese unnies that we know.
So, we make changes to our plans….to go to the airport greeting our Hannamja & Mikey!!! We took the train from Ikebukuro to Haneda airport 2 hours before the arrival time. When we reached the airport…we saw few groups of girls waiting at the arrival, from their look we know they are waiting for some idols…..KJK? we thought….but don’t think so as oppa’s japanese fans do not belong to this age group (no offense please ;p)….and as time goes by….more and more fans gathered…Rollingbee decided to go up to them and ask who are they waiting for…and they said Cho-sin-sung (japanese idols)…and we asked which flight? They told us the flight and it’s the same flight as JK oppa!!! On the same flight, there’s Kara too!!! Omg!! We start to get abit worried….
At this time, 2 Japanese unnies came up to me, one of them showed me a picture on her mobile, I was surprised, as that pic is me with oppa!!! She asked if I’m the person in the pic ….and that’s how we met. We waited….and waited….after a long time….we saw some familiar faces (his staff) coming out…and there….JK oppa!!! He’s wearing the sunglasses (He looks really good in that sunglass)!! He smiled as he walked out the arrival….he greeted some fans….(I wasn’t very close to him so did not hear what he said).. They did not stop for the fans though there are less than 10 of us. As soon as they come out from the arrival, they walked towards the elevator, and Mikey was alone walking slightly behind oppa. I handed my gift to JK oppa, and I passed the other gift to Mikey. He’s on his headphone, walking alone, very low profile but he was friendly . I guess he’s really tired. I told him we chatted on twitter, he asked what is my name on twitter, and I told him. The Japanese unnie asked Mikey for photo taking and he post for them. While they were waiting for the elevator, we took some video of them….JK oppa was always smiling and he looked a little shy…it was a very short moment (maybe 5mins in total??) although we waited like 3.5hrs at the airport…but its all worth it…just to see our “Hannamja”…
Fanmeeting Day – 30/7
We have checked online how to get to the fanmeet menu….according to the directions given online…it’ll take us around 30mins to get to the venue.
But still, we have to be there earlier as we wnna buy the <All For You> CDs for the international fans. we left our ryokan (hostel) at around 3.45pm so we should arrived by 4.15pm, however, this was not the case….we had to changed subway 3 times and the venue is very outskirt, when we arrived, it was almost 5pm.
Oppa started with autumn letter (like the remake concert), he sang a total of 8 songs (can’t remember the sequence). This is the person, hwisang, All for you, Feeling (with cute dance!!!), sarangsurowo, today more than yesterday, letter (pyeonji) …
Mikey had very nice outfit that day – JK oppa also praised his outfit
there’s also a part where JK oppa demostrates how to work out his thighs, he showed a few steps on how to get sexy thighs….
in between, there were lucky draw session, where he picked 5fans …the gifts were Faddy Robort tees & caps. Each winner can choose one the items, until the last winner (only 1 item left), so JK oppa jokingly said, you can choose this (cap) or this (the lucky draw box)…hahahaha
Since there were only 5 winners for the lucky draw, oppa suggested to pick some fans on stage to take photograph with him!!!! Unfortunately, we were not that lucky
There’s also Q&A session – not understand though, he mentioned something about breakfast, eggs & green tea?? (hahaha..I only know these)
Think he also mentioned about eating ramyun – he said he likes the ramyun in Japan….(something like this – sorry my korean not up to standrad yet ;p )
There’s also question about kiss – he displayed some cute reactions on this….but I dunno what he’s saying (pls wait for further translations on the Q&A part)
there’s one fan asking him something (probably wat he think of her or something – sorry too sure) and he replied Kawaii…..this was the most “frequent” word he used that day – KAWAII (cute in japanese)
After the Q&A , JK oppa read a letter he prepared for Japan fans…and he sang pyeonji..
During the interval, they played a video with many celebrities leaving messages for JK oppa’s fanmeet….eg, 2pm, kim hyunjoong, min kyunghoon, mblaq, so jisub, secret, T-ara, mighty mouth & soya, seungri (big bang) etc
At the end of the fanmeet, there’s handshake session, every fan can go on stage to shake hand with oppa….but we are requested to leave all gifts outside the hall after the fanmeet.
towards the end of the handshake session, i saw some fans passing gifts direct to JK oppa….so when it was my turn, I handed him the Man United gift that we had prepared for him, initially I was very worried as I heard from osme fans that Oppa might be a Liverpool fan…I was like oh no!!! cos Liverpool & Man U are arch rivals….so if he’s a Liverpool fan…then he’ll not like the Man U gifts…..So, when I hand him the gift, I asked “We are not sure if you are a Man U fan, but this is for you”…….and Oppa replied with a smile “Of course I like Man U!!!” , what a big relieved!!!!
After the fanmeet, we were not sure how to walk back to the train station as it was dark and rainning….so we asked some japanese unnies if they were heading to the station, they said yes, and we followed them, at the station we talk abit and they were surprised to know that we came from Singapore & Taiwan
They asked where we were staying and told us to follow one of them back to our destination throughout the journey, we were speaking Korean…lol…(Singapore, Taiwan & japan fans meeting in Japan, and communicating in korean!!)
Thanks to these kind unnies & ahjumas, we got back to our ryokan faster ….(one of them is Hana unnie)
Hope we’ll meet again one day in Seoul for JK oppa’s concerts!!!
