Seriously this tops the list.
If you know me, you know that I get celebrity crushes all the time. The top of my list is of course my darling Keanu Reeves, everyone who knows me knows that. Even my late grandmother knows that. hehe. If you followed my blog, you noticed there are a few crushes I have.
So, anyway, as you may have noticed, the latest celeb crush is of course, Kim Hyun Joong. If you noticed as well, I kinda slow in blogging after I'm into him? hahahaha so you see my mind has been taken over by this Korean guy called Kim Hyun Joong. Because of him, i'm into the korean entertainment world. I may not be an expert, but I'm enjoying at my own pace. But, everything korean leads back to Hyun Joong.
And because of him, I did something I never ever thought I would do. I waited in line to see 40 minutes of him in the flesh for nearly 7 HOURS! or 6. I reached Pavilion aarea around 11am. He came before 5pm and left before 6 pm.
By far, this seriously is the craziest thing i ever done in my celeb obssession. and oh, how can i forget? I WENT TO HIS ARRIVAL AT THE AIRPORT! HHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAH I EVEN TOOK A HALF DAY LEAVE FOR IT?
I still can't believe I did that. It has been a week since my adventure, I still get goosebumps thinking how unbelievable it was.
If you have no idea what I'm talking about. Ok so, let me tell you the story. Kim Hyun Joong has been appointed as the official spokeperson for THEFACESHOP. THEFACESHOP is a leading Korean cosmetic brand and Malaysia (from what I found out) is the second biggest partner after China. Impressive ey. BElieve me, I have no idea about this until Kim Hyun Joong becamse the spoke person. I had never entered into its shop too. UNTIL KIM HYUN JOONG.
See, now you know I'm not kidding when I told you Kim Hyun Joong has taken over my sanity. lol
I don't know about him. Why I like him so much. I just do. Not like. LOVE. I swear we have a relationship. XD. Somewhere. Faraway fan - celeb relationship. Then people say, when you are in love, there is no reason. You just feel it. Right?
Gosh, what have i become. hahahaha.
So anyway, let me ge to the adventure. I didnt win the lucky draw contest. :( The lucky draw winners got to meet him on stage and get his autograph right there and then. I was quite depressed for not winning. You know how that feel? It felt like he's right in front of you but you can't do anything. It hurts. I was heartbrooken. Not kidding. When I entered the contest, of course at the back of my mind didn't really put much hope. But that's a lie. Of course i really hope to win. Combined with kak tine, I spent nearly RM400 just to enter into the lucky draw.
I did plan a little bit and applied leave just in case as I've been discussing with my friend from Sarawak thinking of stalking HJ. As my friend couldn't make it, I didn't want to do it alone. It's sad enough that I'm going to the Fan gathering alone.. but not to the airport too right.
HJ schedule was - from Singapore to Malaysia on the 3rd, 4th Dec the fan gathering & autograph sessions at pavilion and on the 5th, TFS outlets visit on Pavilion & Sunway Pyramid. As I've already made plans with my girls Lin and Hani for a weekend getaway, I cannot go to the 5th event.
I managed to get his flight and hotel information from my friend b, thank you so much for all the help and tips! At that time I still I havent decided whether Im actually going to do it. I didn't even have a camera!
On the 2nd dec night, i really wanted to go and i asked my dear bubuk if she can accompany me. She said yes! if not for bubuk, i wouldn't have the chance to meet HJ upclose. Well, not close enough but to see him real life. So i went to work on the 3rd, with 1/2 day leave on my mind and going to the airport. That morning when I was in a meeting for a project i loathe, i received a phone call but i couldnt pick it up. I called it back, it went unanswered and i called so many times! I wasnt expecting any phone call except for TFS. I still didnt know who the caller, but in my heart that time i really think it was TFS. Somehow I got very emotional, i cant even focus on the meeting. Luckily the meeting was a simple one, and i didnt really need much concentration. hahah.
As I went out of the meeting, i decided, JUST GO! So i packed my stuff and left office and went to pick up bubuk. Bubuk brought her 3 months old baby, Darin.. all for my craziness. Now when I thought about it, i exposed darin with so many risks. but alhamdulillah, it went smoothly and Darin is fine :) and she was a doll on that day.
HJ was scheduled to arrive from singapore at 5:55pm. We reached KLIA at about 530pm and I straight away looked for my twitter friend Sha. Found her, did our greeting and we waited. There were a number of Triple S Malaysia there (Triple S is reference to fan club for HJ's band SS501).., there were green balloons and they were singing the fan song "Green Peas". As it was my frist experience, I find it very exciting and somehow Im glad that they werent too many fans there, so I got a better chance to see him. We waited at the glass barricade outside the arrival hall as we thought we could see him better. I was so nervous and bubuk was asking me if i would like to have her corn in cup and i said i cant eat anything. of course, she still teases me about that. lol.
Fans waiting for HJ
My new friend Sha, we met for the first time here after knowing each other about a week on twitter? lol. Simply awesome.
My loyal friend bubuk and her daughter Darin. Thank you, it wouldnt not be possible without you.
Anyway, HJ came out at about 6:40-ish pm and I caught it on vid. hahaha. somehow my stupid vid got nearly 5K views? HHAHAH. i had my phone (on video mode) on my left hand and I got bubuk's camera on my riight hand (for stills). when he came out, i sort of forgot that I had the video on my hand as i was running to the exit. Oh yes, bubuk also was running with me, together with Darin in tow and the stroller! LMAO!. Bubuk got excited as I was after seeing how good looking HJ was in real life. haha. We were actually quite near.. but somehow, I was i don't know, shocked? That I didn't really know what to do. He was stalled for quite awhile waiting for his car to arrive but I didnt know what I did..but somehow, when I crossed to the otherside, I got to be by his vehicle, a Toyota Alphard and I was on his side. So I can actually see him at the window. I waved. HHAHHAHA.. it took about i dont know 5 minutes? max is 10 minutes. I think it was less than that.
HJ was actually tall but small. His frame is quite small. And now I believe when people refer to him as "walking statue". He is unbelievably good looking. By far, he is the most good looking beautiful person i've ever seen.
You can see my video here but see it with caution. hahahahaa. You'll get what I mean about 2-3 seconds when you see the video. See the vid here: you can even hear my footsteps. lol.
And these are the only pics i got .. lol
THERE HE IS! Marked red. lol
Stopped as he was greeted by TFS staff
The back of his head haha
His ride. He was sitting behind the driver ^^
One of the most memorable moment in my life. It was crazy, exciting, fun, and I'm glad i just went for it. TO tell you the truth, i love this moment than the fan gathering. I may not be able to see him up close, up close. But i was there. I WAS THERE! I saw him! and oh, you can see me in this vid at minute 2:06 far right hahahaha. i was about to cross the road. Wearing purple top and black pants. either u see or miss it :P Credit goes to the owner of the vid
I'm still smitten XD
