Jn91 has very kindly shared many pictures and videos with us during the last few days, and now here’s her account of SeungGi’s first visit to Indonesia:
I can’t express myself very well, also sorry for my Engrish and grammatical error, and sorry because it’s long, but here’s my fan account. ^^
Friday night, one more night before Seunggi come to Jakarta, I had a very nice dream, too bad that dream don’t come true. 😛
The Day of Press Conference (Saturday, November 3rd, 2012)
I rushed with my friends from school (How I wish that day I don’t have any schedule so I can go to the airport to see Seunggi!), we waited the cab for one hour but all the cabs is taken! At last, we grow tired waiting and took off in a bajaj, my friends joked, that was the first time ever we’re getting so excited over a bajaj! (Bajaj is Jakarta’s traditional vehicle, it’s so ‘traditional’, that it’s noisy, jumpy, and polluted a lot, you can google it with keyword ‘bajaj jakarta’, LOL XP) We arrived at Mall Taman Anggrek (MTA) around 4.30 pm (Jakarta time).
I met my other friends that arrive earlier and already secured a spot at 2nd floor to see our King, people already started lining up around the press conference area.
Around 6.00 pm, Airens started screaming, and Seunggi is coming! I regret a bit because I can’t see him up close because I was standing at the 2nd floor. The press conference started. Here and there we heard fans screaming, we’re that excited! Honestly, I can’t concentrate at all when the press conference, too excited to see Seunggi! XD
After a while, my friends decided to go down, and later they said they have a better vision of Seunggi so I hurried there also! I’m busy searching a spot to see him, and after I found the spot, I’m busy taking picture, LOL. And to tell you the truth, I’m not tall at all, I must tip toeing to see Seunggi over the fence, but at this spot I can see Seunggi’s face more clearly, and I’m so mesmerized~! X)
Near the end of the press conference, Seunggi go to the tent behind the stage before coming out again to leave the press conference area. I’m so glad that he’s so well protected, there’s so many big body bodyguards there. I rushed to the tent exit and stand there with my camera, in hope I can photograph him. Seunggi came out and I can’t take a picture at all! He’s soooo charming that I may faint at the spot! He’s all smile and stand there for a while before going down to the basement where the car waited for him. That time I’m agonizing a bit whether to chase him or not, and I decided a bit too late, I don’t catch a glimpse of him after that. But I’m satisfied seeing him up close. 🙂
The Day of Fan Meeting (Sunday, November 4th, 2012)
I departed from home at 2.00 pm, thankfully the traffic is very great that I arrived at 3.00 pm! I went straight to the ticket exchange booth, and got my ticket! Finally! 🙂 Because there’s still much time before they open the gate, I walking around the mall and had a meal with my friend. ^^
Around 5.00 pm we went to the fan meeting area, the venue is not open yet, we just walked here and there, took some photos. Some lucky Airens that got Seunggi’s sign are started to come out, they had a big poster with Seunggi’s sign in gold marker, so envying them! After that we queued the line at the open gate area, at 6 past finally I’m in the venue! My seat is the 2nd row of the regular seat and on top of that in the middle too, lucky me! XD Too bad that the security took our snack and drink, but yeah, we don’t have time when the fan meeting start, too busy looking at our King!
When Airens taking their respective seat, the organizer have Seunggi’s song playing in the venue. There’s this one song (I forgot!) that played then we start screaming, giving a false alarm to the other Airens. 😛 The fan meeting started around 7.00 pm.
The venue’s light is off, Airens start chanting ‘Lee Seung Gi! Lee Seung Gi!’ and the organizer had a video playing. After that Seunggi come out and sang Losing My Mind, my favorite song ever! Airens cheered endlessly! After the song he said ‘Apa kabar, Indonesia?’ (How are you, Indonesia?) Airens just goes wild! XD The MC and Seunggi chat a bit before entering the first game.
The organizer already chose 10 lucky Airens to be on stage to play game with Seunggi! They’re asked about 2 questions, first is, what is Seunggi’s character in drama Brilliant Legacy, 1 of 10 fans had the wrong answer. The 2nd question is where’s Seunggi went to when he join 1N2D for the first time, only one fans answered it right (Seunggi said that she’s truly his fans!) and Seunggi gave her a hug. Envy! The other 9 are playing another game to choose one more winner. They’re asked to draw Seunggi’s ideal woman. Seunggi said that his ideal woman criteria are her smile must be pretty, the eyes are not too big or too small. He also said he likes long hair, and it’ll be good if her hair is wavy. After a while, he choose himself the drawing that he likes, he’s so kind, he said all already give their best effort. 🙂 The drawing that he chose is the one that look from the side, Seunggi said, although it’s look a little bit old, but he likes it very much (the MC joke that Seunggi like a mature woman :P), and the winner got another hug! The winner both got pillow case with Seunggi’s sign.
After the game, time for Seunggi to sit down for a while to see his drama’s ranking! (3rd is The King 2 Hearts, 2nd is My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, and 1st is Brilliant Legacy, I think the rank is according to the rating) There’s an interlude between the drama and Seunggi get asked about some question about the drama. The one that I remember are, Seunggi said that in MGIAG, because the shoot is in summer it felt special, and among the three dramas, he like Brilliant Legacy’s ending the best because it’s happy ever after. The funny thing is, most of us already watched the drama, but when the clip is playing we got along with the emotion like ‘oohh’, ‘aahh’ and so on, that made Seunggi say Indonesian Airens have the best reaction!
Next session is dancing game, 5 lucky fans had a flower under their seat. Before that, Seunggi taught us all how to dance Losing My Mind. When the 5 fans come into the stage, Seunggi taught them again, this time instead of using ‘one, two, three, four’, he used ‘kiri’ and ‘kanan’ (left and right), this make Airens so happy that we cheered again! There’s one fan that dance the worst but Seunggi choose that fan with a back hug (we at the regular seat always shout ‘andwe’, ‘andwe’, LOL), he’s very very considerate! And one of the fan is crying because she’s not chosen, but she got consolation hug from Seunggi (our King is extremely kind!).
Seunggi go backstage to change his clothes and we’re watching a video about his career. After he came out, next game session start again, the Sing the Next Lyric Game. Seunggi got to throw 6 balls, and lucky fans that catch the ball can come up to play game. The songs are Because U’re My Woman, Will You Marry Me and Aren’t We Friends (please remind me if a song is missing ^^). Out of 6, 2 fans are always racing to the microphone, and one of them is the winner. They also got the pillow case with Seunggi’s sign.
After the game session end, Seunggi got to watch video from Indonesian Airen, and admins from @FromAirenIndo are come out to give presents to Seunggi, they also present a Nasi Tumpeng (this food is to celebrate in a good occasion), Seunggi said he’ll eat it after the fan meeting end. After that Seunggi went backstage again to change, and we got to watch a video about Seunggi’s singing career.
And… the mini concert starts! Seunggi sang Aren’t We Friends, Smile Boy, Let’s Go on a Vacation, Will You Marry Me, Because You’re My Woman, Time for Love, and the last song is Slave. When Seunggi’s singing, many Airens singing along and the venue got heated up! After Seunggi sang Slave, he said that it’s like that he’s the one that got a present from Indonesian Airens! Both Seunggi and Airens are reluctant to end the fan meet. After Seunggi bow, he went backstage and the fan meeting come to an end. 🙂
I’m very thankful that the organizer very respect and care for Seunggi, very big thanks to Mr. Muly for brought him to Indonesia! Hope to see him again to have concert here next year! (My friend and me both deal with ourselves that when Seunggi come again to Indonesia, we’ll definitely get the VVIP ticket!) Thank you Seunggi for coming! Hope to see you again soon in the near future! :’)
