15.08.06 XiAn Airport Fan Account – Lee Seung Gi

A big thanks to AnnMichelle for always bringing us fun and touching fan accounts!

At the request of Lianman, this is my fan account of greeting Seung Gi at the Xi’an airport.

First a disclaimer, I was a student of science. Although I graduated already, I am still a science gal through and through. So please don’t expect great literature from me.

The night before, because I was about to see him in person, I was too excited fall asleep.
In the morning, woke up with dark circles almost rivaling Cho-ding’s! But that did not affect my good moods at all.

I arrived at the airport just after 10 AM. Lo and behold, met the legendary Lianman. Such a gentle and nice girl. She came from faraway Shanghai (an overnight train ride, sitting up all the way!), but managed to be ahead of me, a local (I was ashamed). Wow!

Later other Chinese fans arrived as well. Qingtian was so pretty I could not help but keep looking at her. We started to sort through the presents. Even with the limited time, LSG Tieba fans had prepared precious presents. And let me boast a bit, some were bought by yours truly!

Okay, enough with all the mumble jumble and let’s get to the point. Are you happy?

Initially he had not stepped out. But through the glass doors, we saw him already so we waved frantically. He saw us and waved back. At a distance, baseball cap backwards, his suitcase in tow, he looked so handsome! How come a person can look so good even in silhouette…

Finally, he walked through the doors amid enthusiastic screaming from Airens. He wore the same outfit as in Incheon airport, but with sunglasses and the cap. Tall and slim, yet with soft, white skin, so delectable! And his signature smile! I got dizzy already. This was my first time seeing him in person. My brains just went totally blank. He shook hands with almost everyone. Took the presents without a care about their weight.

After that the staff would not allow us to follow. We just watched him get on the escalator and chat and laugh with HD, JW, and SuG. I felt warm inside. I guessed HD was making jokes about his fans being everywhere. Then I saw him smile so happily. We waved goodbye to him at the foot of the escalator. Good-bye! Gradually, the famous Sam-Ryong smile was disappearing from my view. I was so reluctant to leave. I even yelled “Oppa, fighting!” Wow, I really risked all my dignity.

The fact being that I saw him with my very own eyes, why I could not conjure up an image of his face? I believed a lot of airens felt the same. We were just too overcome by emotions. I made a pledge to myself: next time I would just stare and stare at his face.

This was about the extent of my fan account. After all, it was a brief encounter. If I have the opportunity, I will definitely go to his concert or fan meeting. Then I can take a good and long look at him all I want.

Some extra anecdotes:

One, before Seung Gi came out of the terminals, some Korean tourists came out first and passed us. They saw our hand held banners, smiled knowingly, nodding their head saying “Lee Seung Gi.” Some ajummas even told us that Seung Gi was right behind. Every time someone recognized our signs, we gave a happy cheer. I had planned to be a quiet and rational fan; however, by then I was not controllable by any reasoning. I am ashamed to report that I screamed louder than anyone!

Two, after Seung Gi stepped out, HD followed. A big face suddenly showed up in my vision. I was stunned for about a second. Then I turned my head to look at Seung Gi. The comparison…ah, our Seung Gi was really good looking…(Sorry, HD ajusshi!)

    I always curious about one thing, can somebody here please help to explain..? Who is Sam Ryeong? Why SeungGi’s smile always asosciated with Sam Ryeong’s? I notice this since NOF and keep wondering till now..

    • tryp96 says:

      SamRyong is a famous movie character who’s a deaf servant. I think SeungGi’s laugh reminded NoF production team of that character.

    • Anonymous says:

      The NOF staffs wanted to mean/joke that as a porter with a lot of “crisis” in Turkey, Seung Gi was pretty similar to Sam Ryongi in the movie, an innocent deaf servant who went through a hard life.

    Through the previous fancam, I also noticed that there was a C-fan with a gift in her hand standing behind the crowd trying so hard to give it to Seung Gi but it seemed Seung Gi couldn’t hear/see it (through the view from the fancam). It’s really pity if that fan failed in giving her gift to him.

    • Lulu says:

      Yeah, I saw that too. The encounter was really a brief one. And you had to line up early to get into front row positions. I know some fans were hoping to have their 6th albums signed by SG, but as you can see from the fan-cam, it’s mission impossible [smile-wink]
