I would like to thank everyone who’s been sharing FM experiences here. In case anyone missed it, there are also a couple of long fan accounts posted in the comment (by Misc and airen). I’ll try to compile everything on the ‘Meeting SG‘ page when I have time later. 😛
The trip to KL was very enjoyable especially with friends who are also Airens. After we touched down and checked into our hotel, we got news of him that he would be holding a press conference in the hotel. We decided to rush down in hope to catch glimpse of him. however, his press conference ended before we even reached the hotel. (No wonder, since it was only 8 min long).
We met fellow Airens who had been waiting for him even earlier. We assumed that Seung Gi would leave the hotel for rehearsal at the venue latest by 2 pm so we decided to wait on. The wait continued hours after hours. There was several occasions that we thought Seung Gi will be coming down. All was false alarms, the organisers arranged the dancers to leave the hotel about 3 or 4 plus. One of the organisers was very rude, raised her voice at us to tell us not to wait at the hotel lobby as Seung Gi will not be coming down.
(Randomness: Saw one of his dancers playing “dragon flight” on his hand phone.)
Finally at around 5pm, we managed to see him!!!! He walked very swiftly past all of us, smiled occasionally and waved to the Airens standing at the both sides. That was the first time I saw him so up close. my body feel numb as he walked towards me. At that moment, I couldn’t response and react to press the record button on my camera. When I regained from my starstruck state, I could only managed to record his back entering the car. Was pretty depressed that I missed the chance of recording the video of him leaving the hotel after waiting for so many hours.
Rushed back to the hotel to get passport and fanmeet ticket. Redeemed the fan sign sticker at the level 1 of the mall. While collecting the fan sign sticker, I saw something very shocking. On one table was the official light stick for the event, and one the other table was those non official neon light stick. Well…
We were supposed to gather at the basement at 6 pm, then the organiser will sent us up to level 15 for fan signing. i just couldn’t see why we had to wait somewhere far from the fan signing area when we could have just gone up to the venue ourselves. By the time all the 100 lucky Airens reached level 15, it was already 6:40 pm. Fan sign should have started at 6:30 pm. Wells…
The walkway to the entrance of “concert hall” was pretty dark. Unlike Singapore’s fm venue, that venue was not decorated with Seungi Gi’s pictures. It was only when we were reaching the entrance of the “concert hall”, that i saw a signage written on white paper stating the direction of the entrance to Seung Gi concert. Still no picture of him. Well….. The flower stand sent by the Airens were placed outside the “concert hall” , wonder if Seung Gi could see that.
When I was at the “concert hall”, i was very shocked. There were rows of plastic chairs and some air coolers to keep the place cool. The fan signing started with the emcee introducing Seung Gi. The emcee gave us no time to greet him when he came out. She immediately signaled to organiser to let the Airens go up on stage. Wells…
Soon, it was 8pm.The organiser announced that the concert will start late as the audiences were still not seated. We caught glimpse of seung gi waiting at the back stage. We screamed and waved at him, he waved back and disappeared into the dark. Obviously, he was all ready to perform. Well…
Finally the concert started at 8:15pm, large groups of medias came rushing in just before Seung Gi and blocked the vvip’s views. On realising that, the organisers directed them to the middle aisle in the middle of Seung Gi song!!!! How organised was that? Shouldn’t the media be already setting up their equipment before Seung Gi appear? Why were they directed in to the hall the same time as Seung Gi? Wells….
The rest of the concert was fantastic, Seung Gi is such a natural host. Most of the time, he would be talking and the emcee just agreeing with him. Despite being mistreated, he still put up his best for the sake of his airens. Seung Gi, you are the best!
I was very upset that Seung Gi had to bear with all these. He does not deserve all these treatments.
To organisers, if you are not sincere about bringing him over, please don’t bring him over! It is really heart breaking to see him unhappy and yet trying to stay happy in front of all his airens.
Just sharing some of my thoughts.
