SMTown Paris. ;;
I'm not going to bother here with the setlist, or chronological order, or anything like that. Instead this will be full of my impressions, special moments I managed to see, my feelings, opinions (that may or may not offend you) and such. And spazzing, lots of it.
I'd like to say - let's start by saying that this was possibly the greatest day of my live (and not kidding), but I'll start from the beginning~( Replay replay replay~Collapse )
We stood in the crowd for around an hour and then the concert finally began! It kicked off with f(x) and La Chata. ( Brand new love f(x)Collapse )
After Jung Sisters we got Shinee! ( Her whisper is the ring ding dongCollapse )
I don't remember who performed after Shinee, so I'll talk about Soshi~ ( Gee gee gee gee baby baby~Collapse )
Suju! ( A girl in loveCollapse )
So, now finally for DBSK, I guess?( The way u are (I got you under my skin)Collapse )
And now for other stuff in general.
So first, the sound system. IT SUCKED. MAJORLY. It was fine at the beginning, starting acting up during SJ KRY's Sorry Sorry Answer (<3) and when Homin finally appeared it was already a disaster. From what I've heard on fancams, it didn't sound too bad but believe me, it was awful.
HOMIN SOUNDED LIKE CHIPMUNKS ;; Granted, I'd adore chipmunks to death if they only were more liked that and I'd really like to keep those particular chipmunks to myself (and they might just be my favourite kind, too) but still - chipmunks. It was bad when they sang but it was straight horrible during the talk. They didn't sound like themselves. Damn, I go to Paris for Homin and then I don't even get to hear their voices.
At least, the view was great (as I already mentioned before). I didn't even have to look at the screens, even when they were at the main stage, it wasn't necessary because I still saw them well. I caught myself looking at them a few times but as a whole - there really was no need. Especially when you had the real deal right in front of you. (Or not so right in front of you but still close and clear enough.)
So, even though I didn't look at them much, I did from time to time and when Yunho finally came out, they showed him very
often. Clear bias, what can I say. (But I didn't mind it too much. Though I probably would if I weren't a fan and I was seated high and far from the stage or something.) And that's the thing I don't quite get - because really, the standing places were honestly the best. You were close, you had an amazinb view at the artists and
a chance to interact with them directly. If I had a seat so high, I would just go down - there was more than enough place. (But then it would be unbearable for all, I guess.)
The atmosphere was good too. There were some fans that didn't seem too enthusiastic (like those girls that told us even before the beginning that excuse us, they need to breath, when we weren't even standing that close. So, excuse me, but there were lots of free space in the back - don't like crowds? Please, proceed that way.)
There were fanboys too~! :) I had some right next to me for some time (but I moved a bit.) One of them knew all the lyrics to one of f(x)'s songs and when Shinee was close he yelled 'TAEEEEEEEEEEEEEMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIN' real loud. XD
There was also that girl that had a plushie with a letter attached and she wanted to give it to either Siwon or Donghae. She wanted Wookie to pass it but he moved his head as if to say that they can't take anything. (And they probably did which's ridiculous considering what happens during their Asian concerts. :/)
One of the sad things was how dark the audience was. There were really few people with penlights. (And no wonder if most of the people heard that they're not allowed :/) I really hope on the second day it was more colourful because people already knew the regulations are a lie.
Anyway, this might just have been the most amazing experience of my life
. I'm not even kidding and I'm not sure if I care about the fact that it is a bit sad. ;)
Me and the girls were so mad, disappointed and sad when we couldn't stay for the 2nd day. They were selling tickets for only 40 euro! ;; Damn, if not for our flight and lack of money to re-book it, we would just go for it, damn the consequences.
So, I can only hope that we can really expect SMTown in German or UK. Hopefully this year and if not, then the next. And then
, even if they announce only one date at first, we'll prepare for a longer stay. We'll take money so it'll be enough for another dates. We'll be ready. ;)
...I can't believe I really saw 83 line (and their sexy Bonamana moment) before they went to the military. It was one of my dreams when I stanned SJ harder but I dismissed it as impossible. And it actually came true. Omg.
I also guess that this night made me discover a few things about myself. (That yes, I am, indeed, a screaming, jumping and spazzing kind of fan, after all, being the main one, I guess. ;) If you know me, you probably find me a bit of a reserved person (or am I wrong?) but on that night I really lost some of my inhibitions.
(And positively surprised and shocked Yurete and Agata, it seems ;) After a concert they said that they had been worried that I wouldn't catch a thrown towel even if it smacked me in the face but I proved them wrong. Not with the towel scenerio, though, because, as I said, Sungmin has no sense of aim.
Well, I proved myself wrong. I didn't think I had that in myself ^^)
And SMTown might have just made me a stan of all present groups, too. (Or at least, I'm sure I'll pay more attention to them since now~)
And this is finally the end, I guess. (5,5k, lol) This took me so. damn. long.
I'll add something if I recall anything important/worthwile.
(And I'm going to write a second entry about Paris itself. But much, much later, lol. XD)
If anyone read through it - my congratulations. XD
