Everyone, hello! I`m back!
Cannot believe this is actually my second fan account when I thought I would never be able to even write one. OH MY GOD SUN!
This time it`s my fan account about Junsu in Oberhausen!
(and it`s so long that I had to divide this report in two parts ^^)
ok, dunno exactly where to begin so I will start with the beginning xD (and then continue according to my photos and, be prepared, I HAVE LOTS for a blog post!)
My journey starte in the morning of friday, november the 30th.
To be exact at 2am in the morning!
I got up for work since I only was allowed to leave earlier by ajeossi when I start working one hour earlier than usual. When I turned on the light I saw my JYJ calendar with my special note on it ;D
(just look what I did with the 3th of november ^.^ )
WHAT COINCIDENCE THAT IT WAS JUNSU`S PIC FOR NOVEMBER!
Yeah, then I knew what I was doing all this for!
Ok, went to work and worked straigh from 3am to 11am without a single break, then I practically ran out of my workplace like a mad person.
I re-did my totally messy hair in 5 minutes after throwing away my work clothes, I got into my “Junsu clothes” xD I choosed the day before for the concert. I got something to eat & a bottle of water at work and then, 5 minutes too late as planned, I left to walk (well, more like run) to the parking lot where mom waited with my car.
ok, how did mom get there?
The day before mom said she will help me and give me a ride to the station so I could save time.
Okie pokies, mom said and mom did.
I threw my bag on the backseats of my car and got my second bag I`ve prepared the day before. My concert bag. I quickly chaged from my normal shoes to my cool boots.
So at the station I jumped out of the car and…. the idiot I was, I forgot to put the water bottle from bag one into concert bag. Ok, but I couldn`t bother with it anymore, had to go to my platform to catch my train!
So I quickly walked upstairs and 2 minutes later dad arrived with his train and another 2 minutes later we jumped into our first train to Ulm.
*sigh* I was already on major stress level *waves with arms* but I enjoyed having a break for the first time today. In the meantime it was 12:35pm.
So I had my lunch in the train and while eating I mentally prepared dad for the concert xD well, you know, fangirls are something ^^ something special. Dad dosen`t know about us a bit so I told him.
During that time dad told me about his “research”. He said he checked out the venue on the internet before and somehow he found Tarantallegra MV on a site and watched it!
OMG! Dad, WHAT DA–!?
He seriously watched it and… he said Junsu is clearly very talented, that he can dance and sing very well and that he`s looking forwards to see him.
I was left a bit speechless because dad really did his homework…. oO ok. wow.
Once we arrived in Ulm we had 10 minutes to get to our next train. Next train came and we sat down there for a bit more than the next 4 hours till we would arrive in Düsseldorf.
For the first half of the journey we talkeda bout the korean entertainment circle. I also told dad about the lawsuit and he told me about his opinion about all this and we discussed how many ppl try every year and vanish before someone ever heard their name and something like that.
He said for that it`s pretty amazing that our boys exist for already that long and then we talked about the army thing and so we get carried away in a talk about fandoms and I told him how it`s different from fans of american artists.
So dad got educated in fandom love by me ^^
When we finally arrived in Düsseldorf we had to change the train again to get to Oberhausen.
In the meantime it was around 5:00pm.
Even before we arrived in Düsseldorf Sis contaced me that our dear Deutsche Bahn had a main fail again. She missed her connecting train and had to take another one this made her journey become 45 minutes+ longer *faceplam* FACK DEUTSCHE BAHN! WE HAVE NO TIME FOR THIS NONSENSE!!!! WHAT HA HELL?!?!
So dad and I waited for sis to come. *hrr* Sis was mega stressed and my worries had also grown since we were late anyway even without Deutsche Bahn fail! (our stupid train company 4ever stupid! this happens aaallll the time when you have to arrive in time and already have a long journey. They just fail you eeeeverytime! It`s their trademark…. (｀_´) )
This was fail #1.
Once sis was finally with us we got a taxi and arrived at the hotel.
After the hotel guy searched like 4ever for our reservation and I`ve died a thousand times inside we got our hotel rooms.
By that time it was 6:00pm. yeah. originally it was planned that we leave the hotel at 6:00pm the latest but now we had just arrived at that time thanks to the fail of our train company ==”” AISH!
This was following fail #2!
We quickly got ready now and walked towards the venue.
We were one block away from the hotel when dad asked if I have our tickets. then I was like “O: NUUU! I HAVEN`T! *almost faints*”
BABO ME! >O< The idiot I am had such a racing mind that I totally forgot to put the tickets from my backpack into my concert bag! OMGZ! IS THIS EVEN REAL LIFE?!? HOW COULD I BE THAT STUPID?! I still cannot even… how in da world could I forget the most important?!
So we walked back fast to the hotel, I got the tickets and we walked to the venue again.
This was fail #3.
We had a short walk. I especially choosed a hotel from where we can walk quickly to the venue since this is 1.) never bad, 2.) needed when you are late & 3.) it was just too suitable when I saw that the hotel is very near the Turbinenhalle.
So when we were almost there we saw another fail. LOL but this time it was a funny one!
Look at this:
We were like: “*LOL* xD what is that?! Wae is it like that?! OMG, we have to take a photo! A photo!”
Sis and I photographed this like mad ppl *hahaha*
Seriously, it was like “Truninenhal” ??? Where did the the “le” go?
These were the facts: The “le” was le gone xDDD
The last two letters of the neo sign were somehow broken.
That was fail #4.
At that time I already told sis “I have to change the title of my blog entry into ‘our journey of fails’ ^^ ” and as you can see I did!
So far so good.
When we were in front of that building we saw that there was a fitnes studio and we thought… “errr… ok, that`s not what we are looking for, but this building is big, there must be another entrence to the venue” so we walked around the house since there was NOWHERE a sign where that told us where to go…
We couldn`t walk for long because there was suddenly a parking lot and a fence so we walked back to try the other side of the building. When we were back where the fitness studio was we saw other confused fangirls running around, searching for the entrence.
That there were really NOOOOO SIGNS AT ALL was fail #5.
No one had an idea where to go… oO strange.
But when we came around the next corner this time there was no fence and we finally found the entrence to the Turbinenhalle. Yeah well, only what we saw was not exactly encouraging: A long, loooooong, loooooooooooo~ng line waiting.
We were like “great. We really are last. ” and got ourselves into the line.
The ppl before us were Cass-ELF-VIP *haha* There was even an Ajumma fan who said they were watching MAMA livestream the whole day before they came here.
This caused these ppl to talk about MAMA for almost the whole time we were waiting in line. They also taked about some swedish fans who couldn’t come because they plane wansn’t taking off because of a snow storm. Their flight got canceled. That`s really so mean! Imagine your dream to see Junsu never comes true last minute… that`s horrible! ><
We waited for quite a while. I think 45 minutes or so. Once they started to let ppl in it was slowly moving. sometimes the ppl in front would yell “STOP PUSHING!” when they started to fill up the venue ^^° uuh, fans are impatient. But all in all it was quiet and ppl behaved as always.
… but whatever was said about clearly marked entrences for the different ticket classes was… nothing but nonsense. There was NO SIGN for one of the ticket classes BESIDES one that said “Guest list & Press”…
This was fail #6.
While waiting we were a bit relieved to see that there were still ppl coming later than we came.
A group of confused japanese girls arrived late, some confused german ppl ask us where they had to get in line since there were no signs & when we were already halfway through the line 3 more fangirls arrived with a taxi.
The funny thing with them was that one payed the taxi driver, while the other 2 got our of the taxi, screamed and hugged each other LOL
There were soem fangirls happy to see Junsu now, huh? 😉
So we waited and waited, moving forwards slowly, Security guy told us that we were not allowed to bring food or bottles inside.
We finally got into the venue and this was what we first saw:
*haha* say hello to my Dad and soulmatesis xD
The goods they sold:
I wanted a lightstick! *pouts* but I had my TVXQ lighstick with me and glow sticks so oh well, I will order one from ebay then ^^
Many bought shirts and hoodies, but for sis` and my taste it was too much of black. May fit the concept well but we decided that we are already broke enough and we would just leave it at this.
So we got inside and the guy who checked our tix said wae we had no bracelets.
We were like: “*face falling down* O: WHAT BRACELETS?!? … (屮ﾟДﾟ)屮 WE DON`T KNOW ABOUT FREAKIN’ BRACELETS?! WHAT DA HELL?!?!? *dies*”
Hrrrr… ==”’ as if our fails weren’t enough already!
So this was fail #7!
(OMG! Did we really have so many fails?! oO I`m surprised myself now…)
Guy told us to step aside and called a girl. We said we didn`t get any bracelets and she said “Ok, that`s strange.” .
It turned out that there was a counter where we should have passed but since all entrences inside were open we didn`t saw that counter and there was NO SIGN that said we had to pass by there. Ok, so woman inside the counter checked our tickets and gave us orange bracelets.
We finally went inside and with these bracelets we were allowed to go inside Front Row area.
Almost all seats were already taken. *sigh* yeah, we were just too late.
So we had seats in the last row. ok. Then last row of Front Row but hey: Still cool Front Row tickets ^^
I have the feeling I was right in the middel in front of the stage. I always had Junsu right in front of me *love sigh*
I took the time he wasn`t on stage yet to take some pics with my cam and try what settings I have to use to get good pics with the light inside the venue and such things.
My first pics of the inside were all experimental pics ^^
But german and italian ppl weren`t the only ones there.
We had fans Fans from Germany, France, Spain, Turkey, Czech Republic, Japan, Korea, Italy and Portugal at the venue!
I read in articles that we were 1800 ppl that night.
Surprised me a little because I thought we weren`t more than 1000. But you it`s always a bit hard to say. So Venue was even smaller than in Berlin but the atmosphere was JUST AWESOME from start to end!
After a while the first video was played and… everyone went crazy xD
A person on Tumblr wrote a short fan account and said she had a friend who came really late and she could hear the screams from outside so loud, that she thought Junsu was already on stage.
But he wasn`t ^___^
Cassiopeia/the Fangirls with the red lightsticks were just being loud as always. ;D oh yeah and hyper *haha* we were hyper and impatient on top of all.
How come I know that there were damn much cassies?
Since we were in the last row we could see aaalll the lightsticks of the others. There were SO MANY TVXQ lighsticks. I just cannot! In all shapes you can imagine.
I`m not exactly sure anymore if it was before OR after they have played the Tarantallegra video, but when Junsu just wasn’t coming on stage we started chanting.
I think it started with “Junsu! Junsu! Junsu!” chant of the crowd.
No Junsu came.
“Xia! Xia! Xia!” chant.
No Junsu came.
“Kim Junsu! Kim Junsu! Kim Junsu!” chant.
No Junsu came.
We waited. Waited. No Junsu.
I said to sis: “ok, what to do now? We are running out of things to call.”
It was really a bit frustrating since we wanted to see Junsu NOW so bad and he just didn`t came on stange ^^ I already scanned the stage with my eyes from left to right, top to bottom and back. Then I was like “*siiii~iiiigh* Junsu-ya~”….
I WANTED TO SEE HIM NOW! RIGHT AWAY! I couldn`t wait any longer!
LOL but then, shortly after the last chant, something happened what was totally awesome! The person who started this is epic for ever and ever!
Next chant was……
“Bambaya! Bambaya! Bambaya!”
OMO! How cool is that?! xD hahaha! I just couldn`t even!
First I was laughing then chanted with the others.
I think this could have caused Junsu to laughed behind the stage. xD Aigoo, wae are we so silly? *haha* bringing a word from good old TVXQ times back ㅋㅋ DAEBAK!
…btw, WHAT DA FACK WAS THAT?!
xD That one video we saw of fake-actress Junsu kissing real Junsu in a video cut XD OMG! JUNSU! WAE ARE YOU LIKE THAT?!
Now we have to ship Junsu with Junsu. Junsu + himself as a ship… this CANNOT be healthy for fangirls at all!
Everyone went crazy when we saw this! The crowd was all “KYAAAAH!!!!!!☆*:.｡. o(≧▽≦)o .｡.:*☆ OMG! KYAAAH!!!!!!”
My dad laughed at that xD he couldn`t believe it either ㅋ ^^ (He even ask me who the other person was and I told him it`s Junsi with a wig, then he LOLed at Junsu`s girl-self and the whole scene)
Read on how the story continued in PART 2 of my fan account! *click* ^^
btw: I excuse in case I had some fails in remembering everything right because I was so happy to see Junsu ^^°
