[FAN ACCOUNT] 140411 BTS Yeouido Fansign

Well ~ I guess I don’t have any other excuse not to write this now that I’m back in Singapore (((I seriously can’t believe my trip is over I was in Korea for sixteen days, guys, sixteen, yet it felt like six instead ㅠㅠㅠㅠ))) Anyway, back to where I was before I digressed - and just FYI I get distracted very easily so be warned - I’m going to write all about my virgin fansign experience in Korea! Huhu ~ ^^

The participation process was standard as like any other fansign, so I’ll just mention this briefly. A signup notice would usually be put up on both the group’s Daum fancafe as well as the participating music store’s website, where all the information on the event can be found. In my case for the 11th April BTS fansign in Yeouido, I had to purchase my album from the YP Books store in IFC mall (which was like, two subway stops away from where I was staying) between 7th to 10th April, and of all participants 150 would be chosen (each album purchased entitles you to one lucky draw chance so really, it is easier to beat the odds the more albums you purchase. Around 2000 albums were purchased at the store within the three days; Between my friends I bought five, a friend two, and the other just one, and I was the only one who got picked) and the winners list released on the YP Books website. Now, all that’s left to do is to turn up for the fansign at the stipulated time and location, exchange your confirmation number for a queue ticket, and you’re good to go!

On the day of the event I’d arrived at IFC mall at 7.00PM and headed for the South Atrium, thinking that I would be early but not too early and that I’d probably be able to snag a good seat for the fansign. But wouldn’t you know it, the place was completely void of fan girls and smack in the middle of the open space was some convention going on and mascots waving to a sparse, disinterested audience. It was just… weird. I went up to the concierge desk to clarify if there really was a fansign being held at this location, to which I was told confidently that yes there was, later on at night. Then I went to double check the details on BTS’ Daum fancafe and lo and behold, the location had been changed to the North Atrium as effect of 8th April. Partially my fault for not checking the fancafe regularly for updates but damn office lady lied to me. First dumb thing of the night -.-

I power-walked my way over to the correct venue that was definitely right because the middle portion of the space had already been cordoned off and I could see foldable chairs being lined up in rows as I approached. Not to mention the hordes of fangirls and daepo unnies armed and ready with their plastic stools (some even brought ladders. Super legit.) and huge ass cameras surrounding the area. I continued to loiter around and watch in fascination as the mall staff put up a giant BTS banner and continue to set up everything. It wasn’t until a mere fifteen minutes before the start of the fansign when I finally realised some of the fans in the crowd were holding laminated cards in their hands. That I didn’t have. Because I completely forgot about exchanging my confirmation number beforehand. Second dumb thing of the night -.- So I rushed back up to the 2nd floor to the bookstore to get my queue number and I ended up being #133 out of 150 people, in the second last row. My seat was so far away that I literally couldn’t see anything throughout the whole event because of the sea of camera tripods and human heads in front of me, not to mention the boys were seated down as well. I was only able to catch glimpses of BTS when I stood up and I am 1.65m and by no means short, so I hope you get an idea of how terrible my spot was. I can’t even blame anyone else but me ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

At 8.30pm sharp the boys arrived (they couldn’t be late anyway because of the Sukira schedule they had later on) and from the moment they did their greetings IT. WAS. CHAOS. Fans were screaming everywhere and a handful of girls, because they couldn’t snag a good spot to watch the event, decided it would be a brilliant idea to continuously ride the escalator right next to the open space and scream their oppas’ names as they came down from the floor above. Many of them were still in school uniform and some were even young enough to call Jimin, V and Jung Kook ‘oppa’. Horrors. It didn’t help that seat #133 was right next to the escalator so every single screech they made went straight to my eardrums X.X Thinking back about it now, I really don’t know how I managed to maintain my sanity for the whole two hours @.@ Because of my incompetence I didn’t really keep track of what the boys were doing for most part, only standing up occasionally to take a peek whenever I hear squeals (which turned out to be Jung Kook wearing the super adorable and cutesy headbands fans gave him. He looked absolutely adorable, like really he could’ve told me to shoot the president of South Korea and I would because no one can resist that face of his) but most of the time I was conversing with the Thai girl who sat beside me. Our biases were Rap Mon (mine) and Suga (hers) who so happened to sit next to each other so we began lamenting how we can’t see either of them because of the super tall tripod smack in front of us. Oh well, at least I made a new friend that day XD

After a 1.5-hour wait, it was finally my turn and the staff moved us to the front to queue by the right side AND I WAS THE FIRST IN LINE due to the way my row was called. I swear to God I was on the verge of a mental breakdown then and I kept asking the Thai girl if I could swop places with her because that was how nervous I really was (DON’T JUDGE OKAY IT’S MY FIRST FANSIGN). Oh, did I mention that my three friends were positioned at various places around the mall? Our Whatsapp conversation then was absolutely epic because they were reporting statuses and checking up on different locations to find the best spot to “catch me in action”. I had one friend on the second floor to capture a bird’s eye view, another on the right diagonally behind Suga (he was first that day) and the last running around the area to look for a better spot. If I hadn’t been on the verge of peeing my pants then I would’ve laughed but nup, scumbag brain didn’t feel like it -.-

Lineup for the day went like: Suga >>> Rap Monster >>> J-Hope >>> Jimin >>> V >>> Jin >>> Jung Kook moving from right to left.

I went up to Suga first; perhaps it was because that I said Hi to him in English, or the fact that I am really very tan, but he immediately asked me where I was from as he signed my album.

And I don’t know why but from the moment I knelt down till I moved on to the next member, the only glaring thought that kept running through my head was “Wow I can see his pores.” Feel free to bash me now LOL I don’t know why but that really was what caught my attention OTL Oh, and also that he was really good-looking up close, especially when he wasn’t grinning wide since he looks really cute and impish when he does XD

Our conversation went like:

Suga: Hello ~

Me: (English) Hi!

Suga: (English) Hi ~ Where are you from?

Me: Singapore!

Suga: Ah, is that so? 

Then he proceeded to read the post-it that I stuck on the page.

I’d asked him to write a poem with the initials of my name spelled in Korean, and because my question was written in English (blame le terrible Korean skills) he actually read the whole thing out in English too and his pronunciation was surprisingly really accurate and his accent super cute ^^

What he answered though, made me want to A) puke rainbows followed by what I ate for dinner, B) whack him on the head, and C) roll my eyes repeatedly.

 

Q. Write a poem using my name please!

[A/N: My name’s Wye Syn, pronounced Wa-Ee-Sin]

Suga: 이신는 (Wye Syn is)

쁘고(pretty and)

기해 (interesting)

Why thank you, Suga, how nice of you. 

Me: You’re lying!

Suga: Really! Singapore girls are all pretty!

Me: A-ing ~ *cough*because I really can’t take a compliment*cough* You have to come to Singapore, okay?

Suga: Okay ~

Me: Promise!

Suga: Yeah, promise!

And we hooked pinkies afterwards before I moved on *dies of happiness*

Rap Mon and I spoke in English the entire time (like duh), and I think he overheard my conversation with Suga or something because he said hi to me in English the moment I knelt down in front of him *shrugs* He needs to speak louder though, because low voice + screaming fangirls all around us + head bowed while signing album = I could barely hear what he was saying. But hey, at least I caught the gist of it ^^v

Rap Mon: Hi!

Me: Hi!

Rap Mon: Where are you from?

Me: Singapore!

Rap Mon: Really? *pauses to look at how to spell my name (he ended up spelling it wrongly anyway who is Wye Shin excuse you) You know, I realised that people from Singapore speak really good English. Why is that so?

Me: Oh, *thinks of how to summarise Singapore’s bilingual education system within 20 seconds* it’s just that everyone speaks English a lot, like, we were brought up using that language. All our classes at school are taught in English.

Rap Mon: Oh wow, really? Cool!

And he sounded genuinely fascinated, probably because a part of him miiiiight wish to have been brought up in an English-speaking environment, seeing as how he picked up the whole language by himself.

For Rap Mon I decided to ask a typical fangirl question which now, thinking back on it, is really rather embarrassing oh dear God why did I choose to do that X.X

Q. If you had just one day (y’know, since BTS was promoting that song at that time) to spend with me, where would you bring me and what would you like to do?

Rap Mon: (We were running out of time by then, and because it probably would take him sometime to process his thoughts and write them out in English, he decided to tell me everything while looking directly in my eyes. Oh yes, I am such a lucky bitch.) Let’s go to Japan, Hong Kong, we can go sightseeing, and let’s go shopping.

I melted into a puddle of Wye Syn-shaped goo #^u^#

We high-fived on it then I moved on to J-Hope.

To be very honest, my impression of him had never been the best because his on-screen personality was so loud and I just found that kind of annoying (I’M SORRY NARA), but everything changed after meeting him because he was just so nice and friendly and funny in real life hehheh >u<|||

He was the only member who wrote my name out in Korean too, which I thought was kind of cute XD

J-Hope: Hi!

Me: Hi, I’m from overseas!

J-Hope: Really? Where are you from?

Me: Singapore!

J-Hope: Ah, Singapore? We have to go there ~

All this while he was actually signing my album and reading my post-it (I’d asked him to write a note for my friend Nara) and underlining what I wrote and listening to me and replying to what I said. Like wow, talk about multitasking. J-Hope really takes the cake man, I was just absolutely amazed.

(Don’t laugh at my Korean! I know my grammar is terrible OTL)

He ended up writing “Nara~♥ I love you!♥”, typical idol answer but hey it works, seeing how happy it made Nara LOLOL

And of course, I had to prepare my own question as well

Q. What would you like to say to me the most?

Unfortunately, he wasn’t as sweet and nice to me.

J-Hope: We have to go to Singapore!

No love for me, eh? But I made him pinkie promise on it and GUESS WHAT, Hope Tree (his fansite) CAUGHT A PICTURE OF IT.

SEE THAT. THAT’S MY HAND RIGHT THERE, IMMORTALISED WITH J-HOPE’S. *flips hair* My hand is famous now, guys.

Next, Jimin was exactly like how I’d expected him to be, cute and bubbly, but he was definitely a lot more toned down from his on-screen persona. Or maybe it was just because of me. I tend to have an intimidating effect on people.

We actually didn’t have much to talk about, because we’d spent the first half of the time searching for his page because the marker I used for him got bent in somehow along the way. After passing him my album I’d actually spaced out (TBH I was thinking about how much Jimin looked like a potato. I’m sorry.) for a few seconds and I only snapped out of it when he went, ‘Where is my name?’ while flipping through the album. He’d actually sounded sad too and I panicked too, thinking, ‘Oh crap, he’s going to think I left him out on purpose, isn’t he?’ and the both of us were just scrambling to find his page XD

Q. Which girl group do you like the most these days?

I don’t know why, but somehow Jimin misread my question and thought I was asking which member likes girl groups the most these days, because he’d answered ‘J-Hope’. And I’m pretty sure it isn’t my Korean this time, no matter how bad it is. I challenge any Korean speaker to defy this.

Me: Are you serious? J-Hope?

Jimin: Yeah! He’s really good!

Me: *still sceptical* Is he the best?

Jimin: Yeah!

Jimin was really super cute; he reached over to pat J-Hope on the arm as he answered me, hoping to elicit some sort of response from the elder, but J-Hope merely turned his head slightly for a split second before looking away again. Poor Jimin got ignored TROLOLOL

And if I thought my communication skills with Jimin was bad, my interaction with V was on a whole new level because our frequencies did not match at all, not even once.

I’d asked him to write a note for my friend Stella who didn’t get into the fansign, and after some contemplation V wrote down, “I miss you”, or literally, “I want to see/meet you.”

Then he saw Stella’s name and went, “Stella?”

Me: Yeah, could you write it down (on the post it) too?

V: *after a short pause* Stella?

Me: Yeah.

V: Stella.

I blinked.

V: (English) Okay, bye!

And he waved (albeit) cutely. It was so sad yet so pathetically funny at the same time I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry or do both OTL I was completely weirded out, but at the same time I wanted to pat him and put him in my pocket for weirding me out so adorably. Tae Hyung ah why you like this ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

Jin too, was another one that left a deep impression. At first we were rather quiet because I really didn’t know what to say to him and I think he felt the hesitation too, so he was just quietly signing my album as I watched him doing so LOL But then, we got to my post-it question.

 

Q. Of the following options, who do you think is the prettiest?

A) You (Jin); B) Me (Wye Syn); C) Member (____); D) Other (____)

Without hesitation, he ticked the first option. And there I thought idols were supposed to tell cheesy white lies in order to make fangirls happy OTL Guess Jin decided to take it like a real man and say it like it is *applies cold water to burn area*

Me: Is that so?

Jin: Yeah!

Then he browsed through all the options again… And he ticked C. While writing “Jin” in the blanks. Double blow to my already deflated ego ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Can I just curl up into a ball and cry now?

Jin: Don’t you agree?

Me: Haha yeah, I agree. You’re definitely the prettiest member.

And finally, to put the last nail in my fat coffin, he wrote “Jin” in the final option as well. You know, in case I didn’t catch his drift the first two times. Damn you.

Jin: It really is me. I’m the prettiest here.

Alright mister, now you’re really starting to get on my nerves. Yes Jin, I get it. You’re pretty. You’re the prettiest. Stop rubbing it in to my ugly face ㅠㅠㅠㅠ

Me: Yeah, I definitely agree. You win.

By the time I got to Jung Kook, I was half itching to get everything over and done with because I was shaking like a leaf and actually feeling light-headed from seeing all these good-looking men up close LOL

Me: Jung Kook ah, hi! You’re so cute!

Jung Kook: Ah, thank you.

Completely soulless and unenthusiastic. He’s probably heard this 205631769508147 times from every single A.R.M.Y before me and at previous fansigns since debut so ~ Oh well. Here’s my “You’re cute!” to join the pile. He looked pretty tired too, having spent a full day at Music Bank and signed 130 albums before mine and still having another schedule afterwards and probably more dance practice till wee hours in the morning. And they’re preparing for a Japanese debut too, poor kiddo :’(

 

I’d asked him to write a note for my other friend Naomi who couldn’t get into the fansign too. Luckily he could comprehend me a lot better and wrote “Naomi” I tried prompting him to write “noona” too, but I guess our golden maknae doesn’t like being the youngest because he gave a face (for a split second which I saw) and wrote down “love~” instead and some incoherent scribbles at the bottom. Oh come on, Jung Cookie, I know you want to be seen as a manly man and all but I can still treat you like a man even if you call me ‘noona’~? /gets bricked/

Q. If you could play yaja time (age-reversal game) with your members, whose hyung would you like to be most and why?

Jung Kook: All of them, because I’m the youngest now.

Maknae on top, yeah ;)

Somehow, I ended up spacing out (again! >_<) and stared at the post-it for a few seconds before looking up and realising that Jung Kook already had his hand held up for a high-five and was kind of waiting there expectantly. Whoops.

After I gave him the long-awaited high-five I got up and went back to my seat. Only to realise on the walk back that I forgot to ask Jung Kook to call me ‘noona’. There goes my K-Pop bucket list. Well shit.

So yupp, that basically summarises (not really) my whole fansign experience ^^v

[140517 PT 1: Gwangju] Bangtan Fansign

Yesterday doesn’t even feel real to me. If I didn’t have the albums and 3000 pictures in my camera to go through this weekend, I’d believe it was all a dream. These fan account is going to be a monster just warning everyone, not only is it two fansigns but I’m going to include some of my friend’s experience as well since she won’t be writing a fan account and a lot of things have to do with both of us. So yes… here goes nothing.

 Originally Daejeon was supposed to be on Saturday evening and Gwangju would’ve been Sunday afternoon the weekend of ?? but it was delayed because of the Sewol tragedy until this weekend. I’m assuming they didn’t have the Gwangju fansign on Sunday because May 18th is the memorial day of the Gwangju Massacre, but having both on the same day definitely made things complicated for us. I came with my friends, Caitlyn and Hana, the night before and we stayed in a guesthouse not far from the bus station which was an adventure in itself haha (we actually say street walkers… I didn’t even know that was a thing in Korea. They were very modestly clothed, but it was super obvious what they were doing). One thing to note about Gwangju is that cab drivers don’t have GPS and don’t really know where anything is besides the bus station/subway stations and probably “downtown”, so to get to our guest house and later, the venue of the fansign they insisted on calling the places for directions… Toto, we’re not in Seoul anymore. The first fansign was randomly assigned numbers and started at 2pm so our plan was to get our KTX tickets before heading to the venue and leaving the fansign around 3 to make the 3:45 train, which would get us to Daejeon a bit before 6pm for the 7:30 fansign (which was first come first serve for order of go… wish it’d been the other way around, but we ended up making things work).

 We got our numbers around 1pm and I lucked out with number 20 somehow (I always get really low numbers when it’s random drawing for seat numbers idk how that happens since I have terrible luck with everything else). My other friends were not so lucky, Hana with 145 and Caitlyn with something in the 100s too, but we managed to switch with people so Hana went really early and Caitlyn was next to me so we had plenty of time to leave by 3. It was kind of a weird theater venue so the angle for pictures was really extreme and the lighting wasn’t great but I think we got some good pictures which I’ll be uploading over the next few weeks J Okay, on to the stuff everyone really cares about… Bangtan time!

The boys came out on time with their light blue cardigan outfits and I wanted to die because they’re my favorite haruman clothes and they looked so amazing ak;ldsfjakljfdak Everyone’s dye jobs looked so vibrant and even Hoseok’s skin was looking bright…I think they benefited from not having schedules where they had to wear a lot of make up for the past couple weeks. They were super bubbly from the beginning. Jimin through his arms around Jeongguk and Taehyung shoulders when they sat down and the atmosphere was just really great! It was just so strange, after barely even seeing them posting online again to having them in the flesh right in front of us. Seriously mental…

 Namjoon was first, and I always forget just how stunning his is in real life. He greeted me with a “Heeyy it’s been a long time” and asked for my name with a grin. When I told him he was like, “Oh right, Kat with a K I remember” Like he does every time lol. I had the brilliant idea that I’d ask him “What’s one question you wish someone would ask you at a fansign or that you’ve never been asked?” and then I’d ask him that question at Daejeon, but maybe that’s a hard question to answer on the spot haha he said “I don’t know maybe just.. why are you so gorgeous??” and flashed one of his flirty smiles at me and I just had to laugh and be like “Okay then why are you so gorgeous then???” and he was just like I dunno man I just am! And in hindsight, I could’ve probably asked a better question OTL. We kept doing weird high five/ hand grabby things lol. Like he put his hand out for a high five and I did the two hand grab where you kinda high five them, but then put your other hand around the other person and your hand? And just… I am an awkward person and hand touching/high fives are awkward at fansign okay?

Second was Jin. He asked me my name and I told him but playfully was like oh you don’t remember me? And he said he did but I’m pretty sure he was just saying that. I reminded him about the camel thing and then he really did remember though haha. He was like “right right! But there’s nothing I can do about it, that’s just how you look to me eheh… I told you I look that way too though!” My question for him was really stupid, I really suck at thinking of good questions and when I actually have good ones they never look at them anyway OTL my life. I asked him “Who’s your favorite Disney Princess” and at first he said he didn’t have one, but then he wrote Snow White. I told him Snow White was a boring answer and he was like “well who do you want me to pick? Who’s your favorite??” and I couldn’t come up with an answer… he was like “who? Mickey Mouse?” And all I could do was shake my head bc the only thing I could think of was Anastasia and that’s not even Disney. So he just smirked and like “See? It’s a lame question.” Oh Jin… I’m sorry I can’t think of questions well. You’re a very handsome alpaca.

 Hoseok greeted me with his cutely prepared English introduction “Hi How are you, I’m fine thank you, I am Jhope what’s your name?” So I told him Kat, and he was all ohh like the animal! and wrote it in Korean and then again in English, but he wrote it as Cat so I told him it was with K so he added a line to make the C a K and apologized (I just felt bad since I forgot my name post-it so it was my fault anyway). My post-it for him was just that I always end up staring at his lip mole because we have the same one and I swear I’m not being creepy! I honestly don’t even know if he’s thought about it before bc he pointed to the wrong side of his face lmao. He didn’t seem weirded out by it though, he puckered his lips at me in a kissy face and laughed cutely.

 Jeongguk is usually really sweet but kind of reserved when I talk to him and this time was mostly the same. I asked him what the most played songs on his MP3 player were these days and first he was confused by the way I phrased it, so I told him to just tell me a song he really likes right now. I ended up getting distracted though by Caitlyn who was talking to Jhope at that point…

 In our spare time we like to imagine what their English names are/should be, and before we found out his dog’s name we actually thought Hoseok would make a really cute Mickey, so for her post-it, she asked him what his English name actually was so when he was answering her, she tapped me when she was explaining to him we thought he’d make a cute Mickey before knew about his puppy and he was like “oh Mickey’s my dogs name!” and then in english “puppy, puppy!” to us. His English name is Tony by the way, he even signed her album that way:

… when I looked back Kookie had written G-dragon Sunbaenim on the post-it. I felt kind of bad that I was distracted by Hoseok but… oh well, Daejeon made up for it.

My Korean, a long with my mental capacity usually begins to deplete right around the 4th person in a fansign, and as that person was Jimin I was pretty much a goner… I greeted him with a really stupidly squeaky Korean “It’s been a long time!” and he mimicked my stupid tone and said it back to me and when I was like OTL on the table he just laughed, he asked me name and I was like aww you don’t remember? It’s an animal… but he wasn’t going to guess it so I said “it’s like cat in Korean (goyangi) it’s Kat” but I couldn’t stop speaking in stupid aegyo so it came out really high and he copied me again like “goyangiiiii” and actually wrote to “goyangi” in my album. My question for him was “Besides Bangtan, which group’s choreography do you really like?” he read it and totally straight-faced, wrote “Bangtan,” looked me in the eye, and said “bangtan is jjang”…. Okay jimin. So I was like, “Yes bangtan is obviously great, but who do you think is good BESIDES bangtan??” and he was like “No just bangtan! Bangtan is the best!” and I just kinda spluttered wordlessly at him like “what kind of answer… what? Jimin pls…”:

When Caitlyn talked to Jimin, she asked him what color hair he wanted to try in the future and he said “I like black, I think black is the best.” She asked if he didn’t want to try a dark red or something and he was like… “ mmm maybe, but black is best, don’t you think?”

 By the time I got to Taehyung my face was starting it’s stupid nervous twitch and I guess I was really flushed because V asked me if I was really hot OTL… my question for him was about Jimin’s lyric writing. I asked him if he’d seen them and to tell me truthfully how they were. He got this really pained look on his face as if he was recalling a truly scarring experience and wrote in Korean “they’re a little…” I asked him if they were really that bad and he glanced at Jimin before scrunching up his face giving me a conspiratorial squint and shaking his head. I guess Yoongi wasn’t exaggerating; they must be really bad hahaha.

 

I think he was really thrown by me and Caitlyn, when we moved over he looked at her with a really concerned little face, slowly looked over at me, and then back at her like he only just realized we were different people, or maybe he was crazy (we have the sneaking suspicion bangtan might think we’re the same person since we look fairly similar and she’s never been to a fansign, yet we both come to a lot of things. We also have ended up dressing in really similar clothes before). He told her we looked really similar before they had their conversation too.

 A lot of my friends say they like having Suga first or last because he’s really attentive and has a kind of calming effect. He’s always ready to listen and tries to answer really thoughtfully, I just really struggle with the first and last member. I think I get more nervous as I go through and my brain is too fried by the end and yet I’m not really warmed up in the beginning, so I feel like the first and last person are always the most unsatisfactory. After a month of not seeing them I was kind of an unintelligible blushing mess by the time I got to Yoongi. He greeted me sweetly, wrote my name in Korean and read my question, which was about different types of photography. I asked him if he’d tried 35mm film photography before and he said yes, and talked about developing in the darkroom and I asked if he was interested in lomography and such. Didn’t really think my question through though since I don’t actually know technical photography terms in Korean so I didn’t really know what he was saying OTL… he seemed really excited about it though. He asked me why I was asking and I mumbled that I was just curious and I think I tried to say that I wanted to buy him a film camera if he was interested. Caitlyn also asked him about photography. She wanted to know what he enjoyed taking pictures of the most and he told her Bangtan haha. When she asked if he liked taking pics of anything else, he said sadly that he doesn’t really have time to take pictures of anything else. When he said goodbye he asked me if I was coming to Daejeon and I told him I was so he told me he’d see me later and that was that.

We stayed until 3 and then made our way to the station to hop on the train to Daejeon for round two. I don’t know how the fansites who left after us got there in time because we barely made it. Apparently there was a baseball game which created traffic and it was just a really far drive. Our cab driver ended up running some red lights for us and we got to the station literally 4 minutes before our train was departing. It’s a miracle we made it on that train I’m still shocked we did… I spent most of the train ride looking through my pictures and trying to think of new questions but before we knew it we were in Daejeon for our second and last fansign of the day…
