Here is another nice fan account originally written in Chinese. Actually, our lovely AnnMichelle was so moved by it that she has taken it upon herself to translate and share with the non-Chinese speaking fans. Many thanks to her! 😀 The fan account is quite long, so please be patient… And enjoy!
Before my confession of love for SG, please allow me to say a Love You Love You Love You to my dear husband and darling daughters. When I knew I won the raffle for the press conference, I worried that Dear Husband, who was not a SG fan, would feel bothered by the extra activity. But…after he knew about it, he replied to my Face Book saying “Really terrific!” when he’s still at work! I totally wanted to give him a big hug. And my lovely daughters, during the press conference, they kept their manners, no fuss, no complaints. And during the fan meeting they were so high they were actually jumping with SG and singing with him. My darlings, Mommy love you!
I promised you guys I would take loads of pictures. But the sponsoring company was surprisingly apt at halting photo taking. They got lots of hands to enforce that too. Dozens of hawk eyes forced me to give up my attempt. I was so glad that there were still some super duper fans who were able to give us those amazing pictures.
When I entered the press con, I found my fists clenched fast. Because I was too nervous. Finally, I was about to see the guy who’s in my thoughts day and night. And I could see him even before so many other fans. This 30 min was a gift from heavens.
At the time I sat on row 12. It’s so far away. So far that even when SG appeared on the stage, I still felt unreal. Is this truly happening? The projection screen behind him did not show his image, so I really could not get a good look at him. I was thinking gosh I am done for; I cannot look at him properly even during the fan meet as I would be sitting on row 23! I was in such a panic.
But this panic was soon assuaged by SG’s smile and voice. The voice I heard every day was now actually ringing right by my ears. In perfect Chinese. With such a brilliant smile. And the most amazing thing was, even though I could not see very clearly, I FELT so deeply those incomparable smiles. It’s a magnetism. So so warm.
In fact the questions from the press were so mundane. Especially when they asked about his ideal type, I was close to yelling at the MC. SG is such a celebrity in Korea. There were so many worthy questions to ask about his new work and activities. Even more in-depth questions, I am sure SG would gladly answer them and share with us his reflections. Those thoughtful and wise opinions in his head, how the press would be in awe of him. But, total appointment on this front from the press and the sponsoring company. They did not even give fans the chance to ask questions (not that I could ask any intelligent questions then, as my brain went totally blank! Hahaha.)
But when the MC asked him if he’s in love right now, he paused for quite some time, acted like he was considering whether to tell. I was totally freaked out. I resisted the coming revelation with all my heart. And then this naughty guy slyly said he’s in love with the Taiwanese fans! Then he snickered while hiding his face. I was so relieved. A image flashed in my mind of the face hiding, snickering Haedong SG, a picture that I’d copied down and save so many times, and now the PERSON sitting right in front of me. I felt a tug on my heart. Only at this point I felt real, that SG was really here. (MC SG was too good. His nuanced reaction turned an old and tired question into one that produced the highest effect.)
When he was asked which part of his that he liked best, I immediately wanted to yell ‘everything.’ But because I was a bit shy, I waited a short while and then yelled. Everybody else was repeating that as well. SG at first did not get what we were yelling. I was gesturing widely in my seat to indicate ‘everything.’ He looked at his feet, and then turned his jacket (screams!). When he finally got the meaning, in less than 30 seconds, I felt like I was in a face-to-face conversation with him, oh so close!! (So what if all this only existed in my imagination.)
The part about the foot massage was so cute too. The MC asked him if he wanted to try it. He lifted his feet, the uncertain and puzzled expression on his face just unbearably adorable. I wanted to scream (any little extra thing that he did induced me to want to scream!). When he learned that the foot massage was kind of painful, and after he confirmed that it could be QUITE painful, he hurriedly declined to try it. OMG, the expression is too funny.
I loved the way he turned and listened intently to the translator. His focused expression looked nerdy and cute, and heart tugging. Even though the fans sat some distance away from him, he trained his sights on the fans most of the time. This considerate act moved me so much. And I received all his love transmitted by his looking at us (it is MY fantasy so please don’t wake me up!).
When the press con ended, watching him leave the stage, I did not feel any sense of loss as I had the evening’s fan meet to look forward to. While I was waiting, I met many friends from Face Book and my blog. All of you have worked so hard and contributed so much for this fan meet, I thank you sincerely…
Again, no photo taking during the fan meet. Still I asked my husband to snap a few stealthily. Unfortunately we were too far away so very few photos came out alright. I hate the sponsoring company!
Since many fans have shared what happened during the fan meet, I would just give you my thoughts here.
First about the three best dramas elected by fans. No. 3 was MGIAG, no. 2 TK2H, and no. 1 BL. The reason I wanted to talk about this: when SG sat beside the screen, I looked at TaeWoong on the screen, the TaeWoong who introduced SG to me. I just had goose bumps all over. In 2011, SG, through TawWoong, first entered my life. Everything about how I started to love him I remembered so very clearly. It’d never crossed my mind that one day I would be sitting here, watching MGIAG with Seung Gi. SG – TaeWoong, I switched back and forth between the two. I don’t know how to describe that magical moment.
I don’t remember the details of the Q&A, but I really think TK2H should be put as number 1. Only this way could the best promotion effects be achieved. Also it’s a show of respect to and appreciation for SG’s newest work (I really don’t know how the ranking was determined – by the sponsoring company themselves??). When I watched the mischievous, scheming, and at times frightening face of Prince Lee Jae Ha, and then turned my gaze to the pure, sincere and gentle face of Seung Gi, I asked myself how he managed to do such a perfect interpretation. I could not figure it out. I just could not fathom how such a nice and considerate soul could ponder and go inside the mind and nature of LJH. They were so totally different. I wondered if the Lee Seung Gi I was staring at was really the Lee Seung Gi who played Lee Jae Ha!! (I was having a nervous breakdown! I really could not fathom!)
For the no. 1 BL, the inevitable kiss scene on the bridge was shown. My heart skipped a beat. SG should act shy for this right? Even though I could not see very clearly, but when the MC asked him to say I love you to the Taiwan airens, he was truly embarrassed (I know you really wanted to shout out I love you, didn’t you?!). Such cuteness! I kept thinking this was exactly the shy SG I saw in all those clips. Wonderful. In the end he gave us a lovely flying kiss (okay, I am so satisfied~)
