“Although I made such a decision, there is absolutely no regret in my skating life. It is a big decision for me, but I take it as a milestone of my life. Moving forward, I will find my new dream and goal, I will keep smiling, and I will keep moving on.” #ThankYouMao
But that’s just it, isn’t it? The build-up. He’s waited for this for years. He watched her have her first crush in elementary school (and, no surprise, it was not on him.) He watched her flirting with boys at middle school dances. He watched her making out with Jackson in the hallways in high school. He watched her grow up, grow into herself, grow through all the pain of being alive. And all that time, all he had wanted was exactly what he has now. And he feels frozen. He feels stuck in his own incompetence.
XIUMIN: God of mimicking fans. Asked for an opinion from fans on what they should talk about, ends up not understanding and teasing all of them in return. TWICE. Really hyperactive and energetic; jumping around and across the stage. One second cute, the next second a beast. Flawless skin. Voice is like warm tea on a cold day.
SUHO: Super fluffy and hops around stage. Did his segments mostly in English (salutes). Says REAL cheesy things to fans; and in return we become speechless. Gives fans tons of fan-service, throws hearts everywhere and poses for their cameras. A really soothing and lovely voice. Squishy cheeks. Looks like a greek god in real life. Puts Adonis to shame.
BAEKHYUN: VERY mischievous, you can see it in his gaze. Ad-libs like craaaazy all over the place but somehow still manages to sound amazing. Is an actual 5 year old – plays with gifts thrown onto the stage during the encore segment, but also a sweetheart because it’s not allowed but appreciates fans’ thoughtfulness. High chance of being a good dad in the future; gently dissuaded fans from throwing things onto the stage. Solid power-packed vocals. Plays with bubbles.
CHEN: An actual sweetheart; searches for fans in ever nook and cranny of the hall and makes sure that he waves to them. Vocals A+, never misses a note. Shouted “make some noise” and managed to drag it into a high note at the end. Incredible dancing – chensing machine living up to his name. Why isn’t ‘Towel x Jongdae’ a thing? Literally glows. Has a smile heals everything.
CHANYEOL: Cool one second and breaks out into laughter the next. Talented as hell; works the guitar and the DJ set like it’s child’s play. A real rap God. Saw a Yoda face costume mask and put it on; no difference. Really lovely singing voice. Amazing body proportions. An actual giant.
D.O: Super squishy and adorable but has a manly personality. Charismatic speaking voice. Had a few flat notes but all was well the moment he smiled. Singing voice is like melted honey. Shows appreciation for fans in his own weird way. Luminous elastic spring balls are his favourite toy – confirmed. Swings them like crazy and almost killed someone.
KAI: A dance God. Dancing that brings goosebumps; graceful yet sharp. Super beautiful skin tone. Literally glowing on stage. Throws smirks at every chance he has. Singing voice is highly underrated. Saw a fanboard that apologised for what happened at the airport, told the fan that “it’s okay”. An actual angel we do not deserve.
SEHUN: Underrated rapping and singing; huge vocal improvement. Another dance God; one second fluid the next second sharp. Crazy visuals. Crazy body proportions. Jawline that could cut someone. Soft and tender heart; was asked what he would like for his birthday and he said “snacks for vivi”. Teared up when fans sang him his birthday song twice.
Taemin and Jonghyun’s microphones completely stopped working around Replay. During Replay, Minho and Taemin swapped microphones around, and Jongyu also swapped microphones in between parts.
Key mentioned going to Niagara Falls with Onew. Onew said that the beauty of the falls made him lost for words. Key later also mentioned going to the CN tower with Minho, but they didn’t go to the top because there were too many people.
Onew: “In my head, I always thought of Canada as a very cold place. But it’s very hot in here.” <3
The music stopped abruptly during Prism. The members were very professional, and tried to encourage Shawols to sing along without music.
Onjongtae apologized for the technical issues during a costume change. Taemin looked especially sad about the mic/sound difficulties and kept apologizing :(
Jonghyun and Onew tried to get Taemin to talk about his solo, giving him thumbs ups. Instead, Taemin shyly changed the topic to “there are many performances left tonight.”
Minho didn’t expect the amount of support/cheering tonight. He was very touched.
Key talked about the ‘instagram life’ and that he can’t control what time he has ‘live broadcasts’ on the platform. He wishes to be on there more to interact with fans but that is also dependent on the company. He also mentioned being sleepy due to the jet lag, and apologized for his English (fans were very touched at his attempts!)
Key also talked about really liking Youtube reaction videos, often searching ‘1 of 1 reaction video’ and others. He says he couldn’t stop watching them.
Minho talked in English for a while, and then Key talked again, until he said in Korean that he forgot they had an interpreter.
A lot of Shawols were surprised at Minho’s English, he improved a lot. Jonghyun would occasionally chime in ‘yes’, ‘let’s go’, but Onjongtae mostly spoke in Korean.
Everyone got super hyped during Lucifer and Key said “I see you guys really like Lucifer, huh?”
During ‘Ready or Not’, Jonghyun kept trying to step across sound speakers to move closer to the fans. He also stole a towel from a dancer and swung it around.
Minho’s closing remarks (in English!) :
Thank you for waiting, thank you for coming, thank you for screaming, I LOVE YOU.
Minho also stayed back/was the last to leave the stage, giving lots of thumbs up and waving to fans.
