I was planning to skip SMTOWN this year, because I already saw the last 2. Plus, I wanted to save up for SNSD’s solo concert. The Google concert with a more variety of singers changed my mind. I wanted to see SNSD and WONDER GIRLS on the same stage. On Sunday, I knew I won Google tickets and booked everything for the coming week. Lol
We arrived Friday night, went to a late dinner with a friend’s friend. I was so well fed during this trip, because we were in Vietnamese area! Yummyyyy!
The main point was still SMTOWN, well… SNSD. Next morning, Saturday, I bumped into Suju and Max the moment I stepped out of the elevator. Only if running into TAENG was half as easy. They went for breakfast at Hyatt. Exo also came down for breakfast afterward, my LuHan and SeHun were together! They took a shuttle to Disneyland, having a little fun while promoting….lol
My friend and I hung out in the lobby for awhile but decided to leave for breakfast and would come back in time for Taeng, Fany and Seobaby’s check-in. We rushed back after eating when we heard SooYoung was having breakfast at the lobby too. I asked fans there if SooYoung left, but they didn’t see her. Didn’t matter because I turned around and there went Sooyoung! I went with my instinct and asked what I was concerned most: “Is Yuri coming?” She just smiled and left with her two unnies. But yeyyy, my first SNSD of the day!
Don’t quite remember the order the artistes I saw. Luna was one of them, which I didn’t recognize until another fan told me afterward. Apparently she isn’t quite photogenic, she looked so much more beautiful in real life. She shook a fan’s hand. I was about to reach out to shake her hand too, I mean she was heading toward me, might as well. Unfortunately, the staff directed her to the door on the left, and she turned before I got to do. So close. lol
There was also the JUNG SISTERS. They came out of the elavator hand in hand. Jessica was really happy, she even waved! I got a really good fancam on my phone, which I dropped in toilet…
So where are TTS? We didn’t want to go to the airport, because I barely got to see much of them at previous airport experiences, while people stayed back got a better chance at it. Fail decision. I waited for a long time, 3 hours or so, no TTS. Someone eventually tweeted photos of Taeng at the hotel too. What?! The fans occupied the lobby, how could they escaped? How?!
My friend and I gave up and left for the washroom. If you follow twitter, you knew Taeng waved to fans from her room. I was in the lady’s room at the time. Failed!
I later learnt Taeng used the back door, waste disposal area. I felt so sorry for them! I believe Hyatt got complains by other guests for the noise, which was understandable. Hyatt was quite large in comparing to the previous Sheraton. They held conference, some sort of fair, wedding, etc. It wasn’t appropriate to have fans laying on floor and such. I was surprised they didn’t ask for room card at first.
It was a different scene when my friend and I returned from dinner on Saturday though. They cleaned out the whole lobby, even hotel guests couldn’t stay back. They also rearranged all the coaches, removed as much of it as possible. lol Fans (guests or not) both lined up outside. I joined them for a brief moment, saw F(x) came in. It was funny; four of them were girly and quickly walked into hotel. A minute later Amber came out carrying this gallon size juice bottle on one hand and something else on the other… All manly! LMAO!
OMGGGGG WILL I EVER SEE MY TAEYEONNIE? How frustrating…
On Sunday, someone saw Sooyoung coming out of the hotel. There must be a back door! My friend joined a few fans there, came right in time to see the JUNG SISTERS! Exo, F(x), Suju left one after another, while SooYoung came back. We wave, and she waved back at us!
WHERE IS TAEYEONNIEEEEE?!? The sun was burning me.
Eventually SNSD came outttttttttttttt!!!! To be honest, my eyes automatically scanned for Taeyeon and found her. She wavedddddddd all cute at us. Did she see my huge SOSHIFIED tee? I bet she did! I want to believe she did, so please don’t doubt me! LOL! OMGG! I was/am so Taeng love sick. Mission accomplished, and we just left. keke
Time for SMTOWN. I bought just-happy-to-be-there tickets this time around, so I ended up all high up, kinda nauseous at first. The concert was a lot of fun! I only wished YoonYul were there and SNSD had a different set list, different than previous ones. Not enough of SNSD! I had fun, screamed a lot! This one girl on the back shrieked my ears off tho.
Sunday started off on a horrible note with my new phone dropped in the toilet. It was my fault, so what could I do. Thank god, I still managed to reach my 2 friends who I promised to give Google tickets to. Felt super powerless without a phone.
My friends and I arrived at venue right after landing at 10ish. The lines were already so freaking long! I stood there from 10 to 5…. This time, the sun really burnt both of my arms, it turned into hot pink today! I had fun talking to this other general kpop fan about school, CA and Kpop. Fans would scream when came the buses with artistes inside. I couldn’t really tell any of them through the window, but I screamed anyway, including the time Simon something passed by. Sorry, I don’t know the guy and girl, thought they were celebrities at first since fans came running to take photos. I screamed for them! Lmao!
We finally made it in the 200 levels, which had pretty good view. KPOP fans are so energetic. Whenever the camera was on us, we would scream like no tomorrow. I hope they caught me on camera, just because I had YURI’s hat on. I didn’t forget you YURI, never did. I screamed out your name both nights. I finally understood the power of SNSD. The moment I saw TAENY I forgot about my stupid phone and everything else. I freakinggggg loveeeeee TAENG’s everything! HAHA! Ahhhhh…. Again, screaming my heck out for everyone, especially my beloved SNSD! It wasn’t perfect as there was only 7 , but hey … Still SNSD!
Overall the trip went well, except the last day was a bit moody. However, I had a blast! Both concerts were just so so so much fun. I couldn’t imagine how epic it would be if YURI were to attend. That just mean, I have to love her double next time?
