A big thanks to our lovely AY for translating this entertaining fan account at the speed of lightning! 😛
I started planning the day Seung Gi left for Hawaii. No matter what, I have to go to the airport today to see him. So I set off at 2 pm and arrived at the airport before 4 pm. Honestly, waiting at the exit all by myself was a bit scary. I felt like being a thief.
Around 4.30 pm, more people with the same objective gradually gathered near me. Some of them looked familiar. There were roughly about 100 people (surrounding the exits in two rows). Everyone had their cameras ready, and of course, I was no exception.
At 4.40 pm, the plane landed safely [a little ahead of schedule]. Starting at that moment, I stared hard at the sliding door. After scanning the people at the door seriously and patiently several hundred times, after the battery button has turned from green to yellow to red, my anxiety grew. Seung Gi ya, please show up soon!
Around 5.20 pm, someone shouted that they saw Seung Gi at the customs area. I raised my head and stretched my neck as far as I could but I still could not make out which one was Seung Gi.
At 5.28 pm, Seung Gi finally appeared. Hurriedly, I held my camera up and pressed the shutter button. Focusing? Of course I forgot all about it. My eyes were focused on Seung Gi’s face, looking at Seung Gi’s smile. Stunned, I forgot even to scream. My fingers were just working automatically by themselves. And my mind went blank as if it was short-circuited. By the time I recovered from it, Seung Gi was already out of the greeting area and was running at the speed of lightning under the protection of his manager. The whole crowd followed and ran. I wanted to run too but I was wearing the high heel shoes that I had worn only once in 8 lifetimes and I felt a bit embarrassed (after all I am an ahjumma fan). So I just followed them at the back. By the time I got to the car, Seung Gi had already gone. The black-tainted windows blocked everything and I could not see anything inside. After a while, Midae Hyung leisurely came over and got on the car in front of Seung Gi’s. He looked more handsome than in the photos.
Sigh… After ‘sacrificing a few hours’, my airport plans ended miserably. I was more depressed when I looked at the pictures I took. Can you call them pictures?
