This morning, I woke up around 10am, got ready, met some friends along the way to Odaiba, ate lunch and then finally made it to ZEPP at around 3 pm. I had with me a very heavy bag full of gifts. And thank god the staff took it. It was very very heavy. Hehehehe. So after finding out that Shin Hye had already arrived, I stood in line to buy some official goods, met some other friends, waited. When the doors were finally open to buy gifts, the line was a bit slow but that allowed me to meet up with some other friends. After getting my goods, I waited with some friends for the doors to finally be opened. It was so much fun just chatting around and talking to people with a common interest-our great love for Shin Hye.The staff took a picture of us and of course I whipped out our beautiful lightsign (represent!) lol. Soon it was almost time and we started queuing up. The doors opened and we went inside. Earlier they gave us some brochure on Food for the Hungry International but for the Japan branch. With it, they included an envelop for donation. Many fans donated after the show to the NGO.
My friends got me really good seats aka front row center and I mean CENTER. It was great. We got really great seats this time. So the room filled up and our lightsign was turned on. We waited patiently until everyone was in. The lights went down and a familiar song started playing. Nostalgic found me in full capacity-it was "LOVELY DAY." Shin Hye came out and omg!!!! She was soooo PRETTY!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm a girl but I swear I was in love with her! She was so beautiful!!! She had on a black dress that has white on the sides and cinched in the middle. Her hair was straight and she adorned it with a big flower made with guazy material. I was spazzing. She was so pretty!!! So so so pretty!!! And she sang the song so well. It brought me back to "You're Beautiful" days and I missed it. It was so much fun listening to her sing a well loved song. The audience was singing along with her.
When the song ended, Shin Hye greeted us and we screamed. She introduced the MC. After that, they had a Q&A session. Sorry my Japanese sucks so we'll have to wait on this. Then we watched clips of all the dramas Shin Hye was in-minus Tree of Heaven (I don't know why they didn't put that in). They commented on it as we watched. Shin Hye's first kiss was with SEVEN in Goong S. And since then she's been kissed in almost all the dramas she was in. Hehehehe. And everyone was ohhh-ing when there was a kiss. It was funny. I swear the atmosphere was great. We were laughing and so happy.
Then after that, they wheeled in a birthday cake!!!! We sang Happy Birthday to her and my voice sucked. There was one candle on the cake to signify her opening of the Japan fanclub. It was a fake one but one which you can blow and the light will go out and so she did. She thanked her fans. After that, they gave her the album of all our birthday cards and guess what? HAHAHA. My birthday card was among the ones on the front loll *dies*
She read some of the messages from the cards. It was very sweet. Then we listened to some messages from Jang Keun Suk, Um Tae Won, Jung Yong Hwa, and FTIsland. It was really sweet of them. After listening to the messages, Shin Hye played the ideal world cup game. I remember Joon Hoon from her Clrde CF was in there along with Lee Min Ho, Jang Keun Suk, Hongki, Yonghwa, Um Tae Won, Won Bin, Hyun Bin, Leeteuk, Taeyeon, and some others. It was funny cause the audience was choosing for her too. But she was very definite in her of Won Bin. hehehehe. Hongki and Yonghwa went up against each other and sadly Yonghwa lost. Then Hongki went up again Won Bin and Shin Hye said sorry Hongki and picked Won Bin. hehehe. Then it came down to Jang Keun Suk and Won Bin. Jang Keun Suk won.
Soon after that, she sang her song for us. It was so beautiful! It was cute when she messed up. She was really amazing!! Soo good. I was really amazed at her talent. She sang the song so beautifully too. It was very profound and came from deep within. I was really touched.
Then we watched clips of her and one of them was of her practicing her dance for the music awards several months back where she cohosted with Taecyeon and the boy from Beast. That was the intro to her dance. OMG when she came out, she was sooo hot. HOT. hahahaha. She had a black jacket on with black shorts and boots and black sheer leggings. She looked AMAZING!!!!! The song began and she started dancing. I was blown away by how good she was at dancing. Her body was so fluid. It was wow. Just wow. She was absolutely amazing!!! And so sexy. WOW!
After her dance routine, she came back out and they had a little raffle drawing. There were five winners and each of them got a pair of glasses from the same people who did the glasses for "You're Beautiful." Of those winners, one of them was a foreign guy.
Then after that, they talked a little bit more and then Shin Hye sang a Japanese song, "Sakurambo." She was uber cute! She was running back and forth along the stage. She was full of energy. It was really fun. I didn't know so I kinda dance along and watched her. She was so cute. Love this girl.
When that was over, she said good bye and went back stage. That was the end of the show. For the people who came to the fanmeeting and were members of her Japan fanclub, they got to high five her. So we lined up and waited. Shin Hye was in the hall waiting to high five us. It was so awesome. She was sooo cute. When it was my turn I high five her well more like high five-ing numerous times in the time allotted.
As I was walking out, I saw Shin Hye's parents. Her dad is really tall so that's where she got her height from.
As a gift, I gave Shin Hye our lightsign. She was very happy to receive it. Our light sign was amazing. LOL. It got some screen time. hehehe. Shin Hye definitely saw it, that's for sure.
I'm so glad I was able to see her because I don't know when I will see her again. I'm still holding out that there will be a "Heartstrings" fanmeeting here in Japan. It would be super to see her once again.
