seeing as the weekend is quickly coming upon us, i figured that it would be a good time to make a post in regards to airport etiquette and expected fandom behavior for all three of the events occuring. (2016 hallyu north, 14th korea times music festival + 2016 shinee fanmeet in chicago.) in regards to airport etiquette: people are always going to have varying opinions on it but, ultimately, fans are always going to try and greet their idols when they fly in to their home countries. in the grand scheme of things, it is alright to do this but it’s important to follow certain rules. all things considered, there above listed as not as much “rules” as they should be linked to common decency. i was originally planning on writing out my own post, but after i saw that the wonder admins at @shineecanada had whipped up their own last night, i figured that it would just be best to help spread their around their hard work. though it was written specifically for fans attending 2016 hallyu north, it applies to fans from anywhere. a link to the original tweet (which you should retweet if you can!) can be found here, along with a link to a .pdf document with a slight bit more information.
all in all: though it’s most likely that shinee are not going to have a lot of free time when in north america, we still want them to feel comfortable both at the airport and at the events they’re attending. it’s not just about leaving a good impression on them, but about making sure that they have a happy time in the short few days that they are here.
