[REVIEW] Park Shin Hye International Fanclub in 2010

1 year, 365 days, 12 months, 8760 hours...
Time flies,365 days passed in a glimpse of eyes.

The end of 2010 does not only mark a new beginning, but also symbolizes a very important celebration - Park Shin Hye International Fanclub's 1st Anniversary.
A year ago, a group of fans came together and decided to build the 1st ever international community for Shin Hye, uniting fans from all around the world to share the love they have for her.

As 2010 is coming to a close and time is unfolding a new year to us, let's take a walk down memory lane and look at some memorable moments of PARK SHIN HYE INTERNATIONAL FANCLUB:

December 2009

Park Shin Hye International Community was established. Our aim was to bring fans from all over the world together and to share news and updates on Park Shin Hye.

January 2010

In response to the 'Remember Haiti' campaign that Shin Hye has joined, we launched our first fundraising project for victims of the Haiti Earthquake. Many joined and we raised a total of USD$1, 100(= KRW$1,136,000). The entire sum of money was donated to UNICEF.

We launched our Birthday Project for Shin Hye's 21st birthday. It was a great success. We also included the original receipt of the Haiti donation in the gift for Shin Hye, who later told us during our first meeting with her in Tokyo that, she appreciated what we have done for the less fortunate.

Shin Hye posted a Thank You note on DC Gallery expressing her thanks to fans that sent her wishes and gifts on her birthday. Among all the presents in the photos she took are gifts from us!

She also wore our necklace to the Seoul Fashion Week event!

April 2010

News came in saying drama "You're Beautiful" was leading the Hallyu wave in Japan and that they had decided to hold a Fanmeeting on June 26, 2010 in Tokyo starring Hwang Tae Kyung (Jang Keun Suk) and Go Minam (Park Shin Hye) !! Tickets were sold out within 5 minutes but thankfully, we were able to get tickets! We were so psyched as it would be our 1st time supporting Shin Hye at her 1st fanmeeting!

Preparations for the Tokyo Fanmeeting started. We invited members from all over the world to send in postcards from their respective countries so as to show Shin Hye how much love and support she has from all around the globe! It was a great success as we received active response! Thank you so much!

In addition to that, we started using Twitter and re-created our Facebook page, hoping to connect fans through extensive social platforms

June 2010
Members of our admin team from USA, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan flew in to Tokyo to get ready for the "You're Beautiful presents: 1st Fanmeeting in Shibuya, Tokyo"

More photos here, here, here and here.

The show was amazing and what was more exciting was that we got to meet Shin Hye and her team backstage!! It was our very first time seeing her in person.

Moreover, we launched our new forum!


Following Jang Keun Suk's hint in his blogpost back in July that You're Beautiful would be having a 2nd Fanmeeting in Taiwan, official news from the production team was announced!! They were going to hold a FM in Taipei on October 2 2010!

Once again, with grateful thanks, we managed to get tickets!!

Shin Hye's new movie "Cyrano Agency" was in theatres and in less than a week, it topped the box office nationwide for more than 3 weeks! Congratulations, Shin Hye and castmates!

While Shin Hye was busy getting ready for the A.N.Show, Park Shin Hye International Fanclub got busy with the FM preparations, too! We launched our second FM project, inviting members to send in small accessories that represent their countries.

We also renamed our site from "Park Shin Hye International Community" to "Park Shin Hye International Fanclub".

The big day finally arrived! Our admins went to Taipei to support Shin Hye at her 2nd FM. Our princess shone on stage, flaunt her brilliant dancing and singing skills and showed her ayego (cuteness). It was awesome.

More photos from here A.N.Show here, here, here and here.
After the show, we were again blessed with the opportunity to meet her and her team! We gave her gifts and thanked her for the great show. Shin Hye was so happy that night that she sent out a message to all international fans on her Twitter that night!

The beginning of November marked something exciting! Shin Hye did not forget about our support at the ANShow! She posted a photo on DC Gallery thanking the Korean fans for the food they sent her, and in the photo our lightsign which was given to her during the ANShow is clearly visible.

Shin Hye started filming her new drama series, "Sensation World" (also known as Hayate the Combat Butler) in Taiwan. However, she sounds unhappy, tired and sick in her Twitter posts. So we decided to create an event to keep her warm in the miserable cold.

But then, news came in in late November that the cast and crew would be going to Nagasaki, Japan to film for around 2 weeks.


So PSHIFC made a crazy decision - visit her in Japan and give her Christmas presents! We wanted her to be happy and have a happy Christmas despite being so far away from her home, family and friends!

We called upon our members for support again to send in Christmas cards and Christmas tree accessories. And again, we received a tremendous amount of support!! ^^

Our admins flew in to Nagasaki, Japan to visit Shin Hye. Their filming location is a Dutch-styled theme park called Huis Ten Bosch. It is a strikingly gorgeous place!

We watched Shin Hye film and gave her Christmas presents, food and warm clothing items. She was very happy to see us and looked at each and every present in detail. Throughout the process, she said thank you for so many times. You're welcome, Shin Hye! We love you! Merry Christmas!

...Wow, what a year!
2010 was filled with happiness, sadness, tears, smiles and laughter. But all in all, it was a fantastic year and we can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us.

Quoting our favourite star, we will "strive harder" to bring you updates and to continue building the international fanbase of Shin Hye. Please forgive all our wrongdoings and mistakes in the previous year and we hope to improve and make PSHIFC an ideal place for all Shin Hye fans.

We would also like to say thank you to everyone who supported us in various ways. We couldn't have done any of the above without you guys! Thank you so much! Let's continue to support and show our love for Shin Hye! Don't forget to join our Birthday Project 2011!

We still have years to come! Hwaiting!!

Wishing you all a joyful Happy New Year!
Stay happy and healthy!
