Almost a week since the fanmeet occurred but I finally have some time to write about it. That’s exactly how crazy my week has been. But this post is not about that. It’s about meeting one of the nicest person/celebrity I’ve ever met.
Sya and I bought Cat 1 tickets for Bogummy’s fanmeet months ago (I’m gonna keep calling him Bogummy now cos it’s such a cute nickname). At the time, I was just a casual fan of him – I like his acting well enough in Love in the Moonlight and I’ve seen a few snippets of him in variety shows to roughly know how he is like. But boy, I left the fanmeet with him straight up the top spot of my K-Actors list (sharing with KHN hehe).
First of all, when we arrived at the venue, it was already much better than LJS. Starhub, which I’m guessing is the partner TV network, was distributing free posters if you download their GO app. Obviously I went ahead and downloaded even though a) I’m not a Starhub user and b) I was on the verge of hitting my data cap. Anything for Bogummy hehe.
Next, we were in our seats, waiting for the event to start. Suddenly I heard, “Ok guys from this section you can come outside for the free fansite goods.” The person was actually referring to the section beside us but I shot right out of my seat and waited in line. Sya was a bit taken aback hahaha. But this sort of thing – you can’t think about it, you just have to do it. If not the chance is lost and won’t probably come again.
When the fanmeet was about to start, the concert organiser said, “This fanmeet will be approximately 3 hours long.” I just looked at Sya, she looked at me, we were both oh-my-god-is-this-real-life-ing. I told her beforehand that LJS only lasted 1.5 hours and I thought that was a pity. Plus he looked pretty tired which I don’t blame him cos he was filming a movie at the time and flying to all these cities for fanmeets during the weekends. The boy couldn’t catch a break. Anyway, getting back on track: we couldn’t believe it! This was going to be amazing! And it was.
Bogummy is great at taking care of fans and the people around him. There were segments of him
- Sharing his photos walking around Singapore, (he did it the day before and one of the places he stopped at was the Xtreme Ride thing at Clarke Quay which is directly. in. front. of. my. office. I SHOULD HAVE STAYED LATER AND LOITERED CRIES. He even took the ride twice sigh.)
- Eating local food – roti prata and carrot cake. This was so funny omg. He really liked prata, even used his hands! He especially liked the curry cos he dipped his carrot cake in it lololol.
- Cooking! – he made some tofu kimbap-lookalike thing and it was so cute. I wished the participant that went on stage was a bit more extroverted though. When asked how the food was (after being served and literally fed by Bogummy) she just said, “A bit plain.” with that meh face. What even. I mean act a bit more excited even if you say it’s plain sigh.
- Games with SJK! – yes, Song Joong Ki came. I lost my shit when he came out behind the stage, even though I knew he had arrived at Changi the previous night. The two of them had a very cute dynamic; you can clearly see the hyung-dongsaeng relationship with SJK more mature and Bogummy like a little beagle around him hehe.
Bogummy also sang when he was here! I’ll link you to my instagram of him singing 내 사람 which is one of my all-time favourite songs. He also sang Singapura and walked through the aisles. Which is amazing cos me and Sya had seats right next to the aisle so we saw him upclose and personal. And my phone actually recorded a bit of it!
But it was the end of the fanmeeting that held the best memory for me. When we all thought it was over, the concert organiser said “Park Bo Gum will soon hold a hi touch session with all ticketholders. Please kindly wait in your seats for further instructions.” THE CROWD WENT WILD. Every single one of us – 3500 people – were going to be up close with Bogummy and actually touch hands. I realise that sounded a bit creepy but it wasn’t okay haha. By this time, I was floored at the level of fanservice he’s doing. He’s honestly so nice and warm throughout the fanmeeting and now this…? There is a limit for every girl and I have reached mine.
We couldn’t take pictures of videos of the hi touch which is a shame but understandable since there was so many people and it was already quite late when the fanmeet ended. I was determined to make myself stand out so I was planning to play scissors, paper, stone with Bogummy before I hi-fived him. Things didn’t go according to plan though. The girl in front of us was so starstruck that she had difficulty walking towards him and the security guy was like “Ma’am please move forward. Ma’am. Ma’am.” I was already intimidated by him at this point so my scissors, paper, stones became…
A cute V sign hahaha.
I think he was a bit shocked that I was doing it so I felt a bit stupid seeing his blank face trying to understand what I was doing but in the end he did the V sign too hehehe. ME AND BOGUMMY ARE AEGYO FRIENDS NOW RIGHT hahaha.
We both left feeling extremely satisfied. Sya and I promised to go to his fanmeet again the next time he comes by! I’ll leave this post with a few photos.
Thank you Bogummy and management for such a great fanmeeting with a lot of heart! Hope you enjoyed your stay here and come back soon! 🙂
