I haven’t blogged about my emotional departure from my dormitory, sorry, internet connection is sparse. For now, let me spazz about SM TOWN LIVE IN TOKYO!!!
Can I just say that this is probably the only reason why I still am staying in Japan? I thought I wouldn’t be able to go at first, so I was really happy when they added another date for Tokyo Dome and when I managed to win a ticket! And get this, I got an ARENA SEAT! It wasn’t as near to the stage as I was in Super Show 2, but it was okay :) Not that far!
Come on, it’s SM TOWN Family. I like almost all of them!!! Getting to watch this is a dream come true– although I have seen SHINee, 少女時代, and Super Junior before, so it meant I was really looking forward to seeing Tohoshinki.
And by golly.
The opening acts were the lesser known SM talents. I was a bit sad for them because they just started things suddenly without even warning, and some people were still getting into their seats. Tenjochiki was really talented and their Japanese is good too! :)
The first mainstream act to show up is Kangta. He’s not really popular in Japan, but his second song gained lots of attention because it was a duet with f(x)’s Sulli, and SHINee’s Onew made an appearance. *cue screams*
Then it was the popular acts! f(x) is going to debut in Japan too! And SHINee, wow! I didn’t know they had sooo many fans here. It was crazy. The fans acted like they were Korean. Hahaha!
I was so shocked when Yesung popped out in front of me, lol. KRY! <3 Cue crazy, shouting me. Unfortunately enough, Kyuhyun was assigned far from me, and so he will be for the rest of the night. We’re not meant to be, honey.
I don’t have time to enumerate all of the acts (and my memory is poor) but after f(x), SHINee performed. Then Shoujo Jidai, Super Junior, BOA.. I think they were saving Tohoshinki for the final act. Good thing they did was they spread out the artists’ hits, with the more popular ones coming late into the concert.. so even until the end you get to see the kouhais f(x) and SHINee. There were also special stages!
I have always loved Super Junior. And I was so happy when they performed Perfection, gaaaah Henry and Zhoumi came too! ;__; Heechul is not there, of course, and so is Siwon~ I am also so happy to have seen Mr. Simple performed live <3 And I was screaming the fanchants. GAH I LOVE YOU GUYS. Donghae is perfectly amazing God’s gift to womankind. I don’t know what God is trying to tell me, because Kyuhyun always goes to the places away from me :))
SHINee has improved a lot since I last saw them (when they were still children :)) LOL at Jonghyun’s arms, didn’t get to see him much because he was always at the center. But SHINee loved their harnesses- they were always flying in the air. While Lucifer, Minho was flying near our side and there was this spotlight shining on him, he was like an angel :)) I had too much Minho tonight. Not complaining!
SNSD was as flawless as ever, despite the lack of Sooyoung. I think Yuri’s a bit healthier now (she still did the chick gag lol so funny). Yoona was really popular as well, but I’m glad to see Hyoyeon is getting some love :)
Speaking of Hyo, the dance battle was so amazing. Minho was there, again. xD But Eunhyuk and Taemin, and Luna and Hyo, OMG get it gurrrrrl.
And YES, TOHOSHINKI OMG ASHAGDHSDGSHKDHSDGSJK. SO AMAZING AS EVER. They had a lot of fans, too. Yappari ne? Changmin was soooo cute OMG still the maknae as ever and OMG Yunho’s chest! xDD They are really amazing performers. They sang live, their energy is unmatchable and even their MCs were funny. CHANGMIN YOU ARE BACK IN MY LIFE. *kicks Kyuhyun out* (just kidding!)
I’m so happy, SM Town is like my K-pop family <333 I feel so accomplished, it was so worth the money and wait :) I felt really sad halfway through it because it is one of my last activities in Japan, and I don’t know if I will ever get to go to another SM Town again :( And it’s really a different experience.
I was sitting with a fanmom, and four fanboys :)) The guy beside me was dancing to Bad Girl and Sorry Sorry whyyy. I liked it when he said that SuJu’s Mr. Simple stage was 最高 (the best) <3 The fanmom actually talked to me, she was so nice! She and her daughter I guess, are SNSD fans. They found it cool that I know all of the artists very well :) Still, I think 85% of the audience were female~ HAHAHA. The high school girls behind me sound like Korean fangirls. They knew all the fanchants!
And alas, no fancams/pics from me :) I followed the rules, now! Also, they were very strict, as in some guy was roaming the aisles every 10 minutes or so, looking at the audience.
