150802 SHINHWA at KCON 2015 MNET Lucky Draw Event

KCON LA 2015

lol where do I even begin to start with my KCon experience.. I was honestly only expecting to see SHINHWA during the concert, but in total I ended up seeing them at least 3 times throughout the entire con. 4 times for Oppayam and Jinnie because we went to greet them at the airport.

The day of SHINHWA’s concert, we were able to sing Happy Birthday to Minwoo and Junjin with Eric’s cue. I’m so happy we were able to make that happen because it was one of the things I was looking forward to accomplishing during the con~ 

Dongwan was so cute. He tried to speak as much English as he can even though he fumbled with his words a lot~~ Junjin spoke some English too and so did Eric. ^^

Minwoo looked tired when I saw him during the panel and at MNET .. but I’m sure he was happy when SHCJ sang Happy Birthday to him. Him and Eric didn’t really say much besides announcing the number and laughing at Hyesung. They stood to the side often, but were silently watching as always. They looked genuinely surprised to have a large amount of fans there to support them. I think Minwoo is the member that I get most nervous about meeting lol he’s just so cool.. ? My friend told me he noticed my WOLF M hat that I was wearing during MNET. >< ;; 

I didn’t realize Minwoo noticed because ..I admit, I was staring at Dongwan most of the time ; ; I can’t help it because he was right in front of me. I’ll upload the fancam for the MNET Lucky Draw later, but at the end when they shouted “Urineun SHINHWA imnida”, I did the hand pose with them and then I switched it into a mini heart at Dongwan. Dongwan looked me in the eyes and switched his hand into a mini heart as well. ㅠㅠㅠㅠㅠ w-what ?? .. Dongwan noticed me. Ever since then I just ughhh.. can’t stop thinking about it ; nnnn ; Here is a screenshot of it since I shook too much during this part in the video.. this was the clearest frame I have ; n ;;;; 

The concert was just amazing.. when it was SHINHWA’s turn, the entire venue went dark. And I just heard Eric’s voice from the VCR. Their VCR was a compilation of their famous OT6 quotes.. 

“At first we became SHINHWA to be SINGERS. Now we are SINGERS to be SHINHWA.”

“SHINHWA is my destiny.”

“It started with six
and it will end with six.”

“20 years, 30 years, We’ll be together
until the day we die.”

“Eternal promise”

“We are SHINHWA”

I really can’t. I started getting emotional because of this. ugh why Shinhwa always doing this and making your fans cry ; ~~ ;; When the VCR ended, Shinhwa rose onto the stage like mannequins standing on platforms. I swear.. 

Above all, Shinhwa performed 6 songs while the average was only 4-5. It really felt like a Shinhwa concert at the end .. RicDy kept coming over to our side. Minwoo came over a few times and he danced his solo dance from Hey, Come On in front of me + _ + ;;;;;;; oh my gosh ..

Dongwan only came over once, but he lingered there for a little bit before walking away ; w ; Hyesung only came over once too when he saw RicDy doing the SHINHWA pose. he popped up beside Eric and did it too lmao 

Well ..I tried to make this as short as possible, but there were just so many good things that happened during this weekend and I can’t even begin to point out all of them… I guess the main ones are..

  • I gave Dongwan Legos + 2 fans [one had a small message on the back]
  • Junjin received my Birds fan
  • Junjin recognized the Birds fan and smiled whenever he saw my friend holding it
  • We sang Happy Birthday to Minwoo and Junjin
  • Dongwan noticed my mini heart and gave me one too
  • Seeing them front row at the concert + at MNET

I didn’t think it was possible to love Shinhwa more than I do already, but I can’t help but to after seeing them in person. ㅠㅠ They are amazing.. 

And to conclude this fanaccount.. 

I think I fell in love with Junjin,
but my heart still lies with Dongwan.

I’ve been taking pictures most of my life, but started it a little more obsessively about ten years ago when i was filming a documentary for a charity in Ethiopia. I had an old Hasselblad film camera with me and between scenes I started to photograph everything around me.  From that moment on I was hooked. The joy I still get from seeing an image projected onto ground glass, or the smell of developer is enough to keep me shooting with a smile on my face. 

I love portraiture, though more recently I have started to enjoy photographing landscape. Combining the two is something I hope to develop even more.

Infrared Iceland

These eerily stunning images taken using infrared lighting reveal the landscapes of Iceland in all their natural glory. Andy Lee, 45, uses a special technique which blocks out light from some visible wavelengths and picks up light from others invisible to the naked eye.

The results left Lee, who works as a creative director, with a collection of breathtaking pictures of the elements pouring over the snow-covered mountain ranges. Lee said he witnessed dramatic changes in weather conditions in the space of a few hours. (Caters News)
