If I were in my teens and a fan of Super Junior, the Korean pop boy band, I’ll probably scream my heart out. I’m neither and it feels weird that I attended a fan signing with mostly girls in their uniform in attendance merely out of curiousity.
@2:10 – I finished recording a radio interview. Straight to Nowon-gu!
@4:05 – I decided to fall in line. School girls came straight from school.
@4:16 – Got my ticket. Yellow. #10. Heechul.
@4:18 – Turned on EEEpc. Connected to government WIFI.
@4:22 – Called my son’s day care center. I’ll pick up Seonggyu later. Bad mom.
@4:51 – Black “star” van spotted. Several girls followed the van, screaming. False alarm.
@5:10 – Drank coffee. Prepared to get inside the auditorium.
@5:30 – Hesitated.
@5:45 – Guy with the SM STAFF ID said those with tickets should get inside. Lots of girls still hoping to get inside.
@5:48 – Inside now. Auditorium full of girls mostly in their uniforms. Don’t they have to attend cram schools?
@5:51 – Took a picture of the stage. Girl with a SM STAFF ID said told me to keep my camera. Picture taking is not allowed. Security very strict. Lots of people with STAFF ID around the area. Hmm… it isn’t the President of the USA we’re waiting for, right?
@6:12 – People with SM STAFF ID gathered together.
@6:18 – The 5 members of Super Junior arrived. I asked the girl sitting beside me which one is HeeChul. Don’t want to get lost. LOL
@6:20 – Signing starts.
@6:35 – Got my CD signed. HeeChul wearing a black polo shirt. Short haircut. All the members have one or two guards beside them. HeeChul said “Hi!” I said “Annyeong Haseyo”. I showed my two CDs. Guy with the SM STAFF ID said in English “Only one.” HeeChul looked at him. I shrugged and answered “Ok!”. Not really a big deal for me. HeeChul signed the CD. Handed it to me and said “Thank you.” I offered my hand, he shook it. I said “Thank you too.” Guy with the SM STAFF ID said “Fast. Fast.”
@6:41 – I’m out of the auditorium. I need to get to the day care by 7:30 PM.
@6:43 – Took picture of the girls in uniform still hoping to get in.
@6:44 – While waiting for the bus, I took a picture of the group’s van. Black.
Interested in the CD? Selling it on EBAY cheaply. Super Junior Vol. 3 signed by HeeChul
