Shilla Duty Free TVXQ Fanmeeting: 15th of July, Time Spent With TVXQ~!!
In order to repay the fans, the long planned and prepared Shilla Duty Free TVXQ fanmeeting was finally revealed on the 15th of July~! Last sunday afternoon, I (T/N: the editor) was lucky to be invited to the TVXQ fanmeeting that was held at the auditorium of the third floor of COEX at Samsung-dong in Seoul and witnessed the top hallyu star TVXQ’s fanmeeting~!
Therefore I especially wrote this TVXQ’s fanmeeting account to share with fellow bloggers and weibo bloggers. Hope that friends who are unable to come to the event will be able to feel what it is like to be there, feeling the passion and agitation. As for friends who came, ke ke, then please recap this memorable happy time with me~~
Under the organizer’s well-coordination, thousands of overseas fan (mostly China and Japanese fans) came to the event. The scene of the gathering of everyone was rather magnificent, enough to prove TVXQ’s strong popularity~!!
Only after seeing the huge posters and banners across the hall, together with the piles of fans’ gifts that I truly feel it… that this was really the fanmeeting of the top hallyu star TVXQ!
There was TVXQ’s standees placed near the entrance for photography, and fans could take a commemorative photo with “TVXQ”. It was such a heartwarming setup~~~
After an organized preparation, fans began to enter the venue…… while taking photos, I can clearly sense the excitement of the fans. Yes, after entering, we will be able to see TVXQ~!
As it was for overseas fans, there were translations in Chinese, Japanese and English. After seated well with the number previously given, the atmosphere began to heat up. Everyone sat there, anticipating the moment TVXQ is on stage. I sat on my seat, holding my breath…..
Suddenly the big screen on stage showed the huge “TVXQ” and then the opening video began! We were all pumped up!!
Everyone held on to the red light stick in harmony, shouting out TVXQ, screams and cheers heard throughout…… I was shocked by this moment of presence and passion! I quickly snapped my photos….
Before anyone can register what has happened, Yunho and Changmin were already on stage~!! T~V~X~Q~! Finally saw them!! Was overwhelmed with the anxiety that I was stunned for a few minutes before I regained consciousness and quickly took photos and cheered loudly with everyone.
The opening number was MAXIMUM, the handsome dance choreography made all of us fallen in a split second~~
After the opening number, the emcee appeared, chatting well with Yunho and Chanmin in Chinese and Korean. The topic started from their latest single in Japan ‘ANDROID’, to Yunho and Changmin’s personal health tips, to recommendation of places for drinking in summer etc. Yunho and Changmin talked about their favourite lifestyle and then introduced a few sightseeing places to fans. Indeed the stars who are leading the Korean culture into Asia and the world. They didn’t forget to promote Korean culture, good job~~!
After the opening ment, Yunho and Changmin went off the stage for a while. After a while, they reappeared with How Can I~! The duo’s stage presence is really too outstanding!
After the song ended, the duo talked about their thoughts for the filming of Shilla Duty Free CF. The two who are only able to film with no customers around and yet unable to purchase anything that they really wished to buy… This is the disadvantage of an artiste, ha~~
The two also said that they saw their standees on the 3rd floor of the outlet (photography area) in Seoul and can’t helped but went over and took a photo together. Just the thought of it makes one laugh, haha…….. Everyone who had a chance to visit the Seoul outlet, do go and take a photo there~ ^^
The next segment is the most interesting — TVXQ’s interaction with fans~! ^^ Picking a question out from the box of fans’ questions. The above photo is a very curious Changmin~ ^_^
P.S. Changmin answered a question saying he wanted 2-3 children in the future, muhaha~~
Yunho and Changmin were really lovely for the warm interaction with fans…… ^_^ There were a lot of laughters in this segment~
Just then, the most interesting and agitating moment came for me~!! Emcee announced that they are going to choose a lucky fan from our Shilla Duty Free Weibo fans’ questions.
Just as TVXQ were “Ah~” in awe, their background screen showed our weibo homepage and the questions left there. The moment our weibo and the questions were shown on the screen, I was totally in indescribable exciting mood~ T_T
Our weibo has became a communication bridge with TVXQ~ I am so overwhelmed with happiness~! ^o^ Thank you everyone for the attention and support~!
Amongst the thousands of questions, TVXQ picked the question of ‘小包子阿熊’, “If I were to shop at Shilla Duty Free, what gifts should I give to my parents and grandparents?” Fillial girl~! Lucky child, congrats congrats~! ^^
Yunho smiled and replied, from his perspective, nothing else like nutrition supplements suits the elderly the most, thus recommended Jung Kwan Jang (Note: Korea’s famous red ginseng brand by Korea Ginseng Corporation) for family~^^ Haha, looks like Jung Kwan Jang’s counter in Shilla is going to be running out of stocks soon….
After that was TVXQ’s lucky draw segment where they gave presents to fans.
The present were the suits and accessories Yunho and Changmin wore in the Shilla Duty Free CF, wah, such benefit!
The interaction brought a new height to the whole fanmeeting. During the performance of the next few songs, the atmosphere was hyped up. Let us enjoy the stage presence by TVXQ’s Yunho and Changmin~!!
Yunho and Changmin who were singing immersedly… one can sense their control of the stage anything~!
With everyone’s thundering cheers, TVXQ ended their performance. I completely understood the limitless charisma of TVXQ on stage, and slowly felt that the performance was not enough… Yunho and Changmin who were perspiring on stage, so handsome!!
Even my male colleague who was standing beside me can’t helped but said, “Ya~ A man is the sexiest when he danced and perspired~~” Haha…..
Following was the group photo with TVXQ and fans. Fans went up the stage in an orderly manner for their photo with TVXQ.
I was allowed to take a photo on stage too, and TVXQ’s facial expressions were so comically cute during the photo session and they would warmly thanked the fans after the photo was taken. Affirmation of two warmhearted guys, done~! I saw many fans cried after the photo was taken.
Happy times were short-lived and the fan meeting came to an end.
TVXQ thanked the fans who came all the way for the fanmeeting. Yunho and Changmin expressed that they were busy promoting their new single lately and felt that it has been a long while they met fans on such a close interaction. They were very happy to spend such a joyful time together. Lastly, they did not forget to invite the fans to visit Shilla Duty Free during their visit to Korea. Changmin jokingly said that as he is not a millionaire, so if he really wants something at a cheaper price, he would go to Shilla Duty Free shop, haha……
Just like this, after a round of busy, excitement and agitation, the grand event concluded. The mutual understanding and harmony between the artistes and fans made my heart so warm…
Thank you TVXQ, thank you everyone who was there, thank you staffs, thank you who is reading this weibo and blogger. On this night of 15th July, the memory stays on forever.
