I was going to write a more substantial account but thought that I will just share some highlights instead.

  • When he arrived in the van, his manager had gone inside first. I was waiting around for him to actually get out of the car. After awhile, he wind down his window and waved to me. I walked over and we chatted for a bit. He noticed it was raining and told me to go inside first.
  • I was nervous (!!) and couldn’t talk properly. So he kind of switched to English a bit (I persisted in Korean) before switching back to Korean.
  • I said it’s been a long time, but you look the same, you haven’t aged one bit! He didn’t say anything but shook his head and smiled.
  • He asked, so where do you live now? Do you live in Thailand? I was like, huh?????? So funny
  • He asked what I’m doing in Korea, and I said I’m catching up with friends. He said, you have friends in Korea??? (HAH!) I said like Lucky Se7en who I met before and he was like… “Ah…”
  • I asked if he could sign something and he took the paper and started writing my name. I said I thought you might not remember my name and he kinda smiled/laughed himself (very cute!)
  • I said I don’t know when I’ll see you again and he told me to take care and stay healthy. After he went in, he was lining up for security check and after quite awhile, he finally reached the conveyor belt (?) and he was far away already but he looked towards where I was. I waved at him, not knowing if he would see but he waved back!

Here’s the video again

I figured I wouldnt bother uploading other photos because the video is the clearest!

My favourite moments

– The dance battle for to win the one and only figurine that he brought over from Korea. At first he didnt know what was happening and then found out what it was about so he took over and split the 10 contestants into 2 groups of 5 so that he could see properly how they were dancing. The last 2 remaining, he went to dance with them then said it was too hard to choose. So he wanted the audience to vote and cheer for the person they supported but he was saying it in English and became lost for words so halfway through his sentence he switched over to korean saying “like clap your hands or whatever” and turned to the translator for help. It was a rwally funny moment!
-there was a part where fans in the audience could sms a question to a phone number which was announced on stage. The mc then randomly picked questions and rang them. Se7en was given the phone in each case and he would say things like “Hello? This is se7en oppa. Who’s this?” in Thai/Thai accent.
-He pretended to speak fluently in Thai a few times and tried to copy what the MC was saying
-Throughout the whole fanmeet he was on a high and couldnt stop moving and making faces and noises. Really cute and playful!
-The day before the fanmeet, he had mistaken a fan called ‘Wow’ for ‘Kasy’ and went as far as to sign her album ‘to kasy’. When he found out later he was so sorry and during the fan meet he say Wow sit in the front row and pointed to her saying ‘Wow!’ (Later after the fanmeet when he signed for her with the right name he joked saying ‘Wow! Fantastic baby!’

My personal highlights
-When he was talking about how special the figurine that he had brought from korea was, I shouted out “Please pick me!” and he looked at me then said “Cecilia, I want to give this to you but [I cant]”
-when he sang come back to me, he was giving out roses and he gave me one
– at the beginning he was talking and he looked over at me and my friend and said “annyeong” in Korean
– when I went on the stage and high fivex and hugged him, he said thanks, you’ve come a long way

Here’s more about the fan meet (info is mainly from my friend who went to the fan meet)

The fan meet was held at Yonsei university 100th memorial hall. Outside the hall, before entering the hall, fans were asked to further vote for ‘Se7en best 7’ and ‘Songs you want to hear’ (the pre fan meet events on cafe.hello7.com) using stickers. Seating was randomised but Korean and Japanese fans were seated on separate sections of the hall. The fan meet was MC’ed by a gagman (sorry forgot his name) who was fluent also in Japanese. During the fan meet, he would translate sometimes from Korean into Japanese or if Dongwookie said something in Japanese, he would repeat it in Korean.

The fan meet lasted around 3 hours. He started by singing When I can’t sing and Somebody Else. Then ‘Se7en best 7’ and ‘Songs that I want to hear’ were revealed via a video which Dongwookie had filmed in advance. As each song was revealed, he would sing maybe a line here and there (not for all songs) and introduce some background info for each song eg. who wrote it, when it was written, some behind stories. For instance, ‘The One’ was originally meant to be the title track for the 2nd album since he really liked the song, but then Passion was written and that became the title track. There were plans later on to release ‘The One’ as a digital single but ‘Crazy’ was released as the digital single instead so in the end, ‘The One’ was included in the 3rd album. ‘La La La’ was written in a small room in Japan with Teddy.He also revealed that ‘That Person’ was a song that was considered to be a title track. In the Best 7, songs included Come back to me, I know, I will do well, La La La, Better Together. The results for ‘Songs I want to listen to’ was a bit of a surprise to him and included ‘Drips’, ‘Come back to me Part 2’, ‘Understand’ and ‘Holding Flowers’. He said ‘Drips’ was a R rated songs and teased Lucky Se7en that they like erotic stuff. He also stated that he didnt like the song ‘Holding Flowers’

He answered various questions by fans picked from a box and included questions in both Korean and Japanese. One question was ‘How come when you take selca (photos of yourself), you always take it from the left side of your face?’ (This is why he tweeted the photo of himself after the fan meet with the photo taken from the right side)

A game was then played with the whole audience where 2 fans (one korean and one Japanese) were to be chosen as the one who understood him the most. The game was played like this – a question would be asked eg. ‘When he showers, does he wash his hair or body first?’ Fans would then have to choose answer 1 or 2. Then Dongwookie would reveal the answer himself. Those who got the answer wrong would be eliminated and the game continued until they got to the last 2 people. In the end, when just one Korean and one Japanese fan were left, the last question was asked ‘When he dresses himself, does he put on his pants or shirt first?’ The Japanese fan got it right and she got a cosmetic set as a present and a hug from him. The Korean fan also got a hug.

To follow, there was a handshaking session where each fan got the chance to shake his hand. After this, everyone was seated again and he sang 2 more songs – I will do well and Love again.

During the fan meet, fan message videos (the other event on Lucky se7en) were shown here and there in between different segments as well as behind the scenes footage of the filming of When I cant sing (when the fans took part in the filming).

After this main event finished, Japanese fans had a separate fan meeting at a hotel somewhere for another 3 hours where he took photos with them and signed for them.

He sang various songs including – I will do well, drips, When I cant sing, Love again. When the Se7en songs best 7 was revealed, ‘Holding flowers’ was on the list and he sang part of it accapella. He talked alot and was very funny. He revealed behind stories about songs that he had never talked about before.

There was photo time and there was a handshaking session at the end.

He wore a pink vest (?)~so cute TT He sang Digital Bounce and When I can’t sing, then La la la + remix!! Then he said it was the last song and that he was going to sing Better Together but the music for Passion started. He had this “What the?” look on his face but laughed and sang Passion instead the left TTTTTTTTTTTTT Should have sang Better Together as encore TTTTTTTTTTT

During Passion!! He looked at me!! That’s right huh?? It was Passion right? It should be right…my memory is not so good..

Anyway the stage was right in front of me and small so it was cool because I could see him close up TTTTTTT Let’s do this another time!!!!!

[Photo+account] 120506 Se7en showcase in Nagoya (+after)

I found that fans at the Nagoya showcase was the most passionate out of the 3 cities I went to. They really were very excited to see him. Dongwookie made the mistake of saying taht this was his 2nd time to Nagoya but fans reminded him that it was his 3rd time already. He even attempted to crack a joke saying “Nagoya! 최고야!” (Choi go ya means the best in Korean but he was playing around with the last 2 syllables which were the same)

Since it was the last day of the Golden week in Japan, he said to everyone to gather strength to get back to the daily routine (or something along those lines, i’m only going by what people told me).

Since I am uploading the full file for this, if anyone who understands can translate what he said it would be greatly appreciated 🙂

At the Nagoya showcase for the encore, he sang Digital Bounce instead of Better Together.

And before the high five session he did go on the stage again but since I was further away my photos werent as good as Fukuoka’s.

I was quite nervous for the high five session because it was potentially my last chance to talk to him. I had alot to say but I knew I only had seconds so I kept thinking what I should say and how to say it all before getting pushed along. When it was my turn, I said thank you for everything and korean activities plz – …. I wanted to say, please resume your korean activities soon but I sorta got stuck halfway and couldnt get the words out properly. I was already high fiving him with both hands and grasping his hands but I was so concentrating on what I wanted to say taht I didnt really realise he was trying to talk to me. He actually was saying to me “Go back to Australia well” but I must have looked really dazed because he said it to me like 3 times. Even after I walked away, he turned his head to look at me and yelled out again “Go back to Australia well!”

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

I dont want to go back

TTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT

After going outside everyone was chatting and after awhile everyone started heading across the road near the carpark, hoping to catch a glimpse of him as he exited. Before I knew it, hundreds of fans had lined up along the road. Some tried to stand at the exit of the carpark but were shooed away by security guards.

The above photo is just one portion of the people lining up along the road. There were just as many and even more on my other side and the line of people went right around the corner as people hoped to see him when he van went past. After awhile, he came out and stood at the exit of the car park, waving to fans across the road. The street was filled with screams. The atmosphere was amazing. I have to say I have not seen this in a long time since maybe 6 years ago in Korea.

After he waved goodbye, he turned around and got onto the van. Security guards got ready and were on the road to make sure there would be no crazy fans trying to get near the van. When the van drove out, there was more screaming and as the van drove past the fans, you could see his silhouette waving to fans inside the van. As the van drove along the road, there were 2 security guards running along side the van as it went by. Fans continued to scream and run on the pedestrian pathway, chasing the van as it stopped at a red light. So much chaos and screaming! I found this scene to be so amusing because it was like a scene out of a movie and Dongwookie was like the president with his bodyguards running alongside his car to protect him.
