The concert was on June 16th… Finally..the day I’ve been waiting for since their March comeback \o/
My ticket was in mosh-pit pen B
Being in mosh-pit..people are supposed to come much earlier to queue right?
So did we.. SHCJs from Indonesia who stayed in the same room..wanna queue at 6AM…and then took turns to queue..but it turned out we only reached the venue at 12 AM……a bunch of lazy ppl U_U =)))))))))
Almost lost our way there (me was 2 other SHCJs..the rest were behind us)…there was a kind boy who helped us and took us until the compass ballroom! Thanks whoever you are! XD
I was a bit surprised the waiting place had air conditioner!! and CHARGING PLACES!! HAHAHAH =)))
busy SHCJs prepare and queue for the concert
While waiting..we could hear the rehearsal inside…. I remember this part the most: when Hyesung’s voice sang HOW DO I SAY so loud <3333333
Also heard “T.O.P” and ” Venus” from outside.. The dancers were coming to the ballroom via the door in pen A… saw them once when I was walking thru pen A..
The press conference started! and we all got update from twitter… they seemed happy..coz they did all those random things: Minu plugged out DW’s mic (OTL), he then put it back and Eric asked him to plug it out again =)), Minu’s random “say hooo” in press conference, and many other things.. I hoped in the concert they were as happy if not for the microphone and other technical problems… 😦
I saw Nicole were running around during queuing to organize the project: telling about flag show and distributing banner XD other Singaporeans SHCJ were also busy organizing the project..even did a hilarious presentation for flag show..by singing once in a lifetime in front of the crowd =)))))))))))))))
uri neuuun…..shinhwa changjo indonesia!! (me not in the pic XD)
By the way from Indonesia we prepared a shirt for Shinhwa with our signature and kiss mark XDD along with the banner in the pics, full of our signatures XDD Come to think of it, SHCJs are very narcissistic LOL.. Later the banner and shirt were given to Manager Joonpyo who was wandering in Pen A.. (ARRGHH DIDN’T GET TO MEET HIM ;;A;;)
There were a huge pic of Shinhwa near the pen A..people (including me) were taking pics there…. Too bad I don’t hv the pic with me now XD
The merchandises were sold earlier than expected.. they sold it around 2 or 3 pm, not 1-2 hours before concert like it’s scheduled before… There were 2 parts of merchandise selling: the really official one from Shinhwa Company and the “official” one from organizer in Singapore. Obviously the really official ones were very expensive.. Like lightstick..it was sold SGD 30!!! Too expensive!!
The queue in the “official” one was longer.. and there was no restrictions on how many we could buy.. So i bought 2 tshirts (one for me, one for Dita), 8 light stick (3 for me, 3 for Nikki, 2 for mb.Dede), and 4 earphone jack (2 for Nikki, 1 for me, 1 for mb.Dede) XDDDD. As expected, T-shirt and Lightstick were sold out first!! (I regret I didn’t buy the white t-shirt ;;A;;)
my Shinhwa merchandises..flags are from SG SHCJ.. the fan is for SHCJ Indonesia
Around 6 pm or so…people started standing up in the queue… so I did too..but turned out the organizers haven’t even opened the gate….. ==” when they finally opened….SHCJs are rushing inside!!!!!! Securities are checking our bags, I didn’t even bring my pocket camera..since I dunno how to take good fancam and fanpics… but there were many ppl who managed to sneak in cameras or even SLR…. daebak =))
I got confused for a moment on where should I stand.. I chose near the front stage at last..a bit regret..since I couldn’t see the extended stage too close where Shinhwa did lots of fanservice from there.. should’ve stood in the middle instead…. 😦
There was not many people inside…at first XDDD but after a while…the ballroom was packed XDD
where I stood
At 7pm… people were all screaming “SHINHWA SAN!!! SHINHWA SAN !!!! SHINHWA SAN!!”. The screen was showing their concert teaser vids (the one they have for Seoul con) first…then the T.O.P intro started…..with a violist played the intro.. The laser show was beautiful…though it was a bit irritating to one’s eyes =)))))
FINALLY OUR SHINHWA WAS THERE!!!!!!! They appeared from behind the huge screen, singing T.O.P in white suit <3333333
Hyesung is so princely-like..OMG his face was so thin and small..but he got these cute chubby cheeks :3
Eric and Jinnie are very gorgeous.. They’re tall and have this sculpted faces…especially Eric.. His was perfect!! His eyes were very captivating…ahh <333 Jinnie got cutest smile.. Later when he was dancing (forget in which song) he was smiling wide like a kid..and people screamed XDD
Andy is cute yet handsome..he looked very happy.. He kept smiling <33
Dongwannie…looks perfectly dashing *-*He was in bad mood that night, didn’t smile and talk as much as usual.. but he was really..really gorgeous… He was petite and looked thin even though he was known as “muscle man” XDDD my chitchai oppar… ;;A;;
During T.O.P I almost forgot to chant “SHIN-HWA-CHANG-JO” for ending pose..but I remembered as soon as Minu did it first… HAHAAHAH.. XDD
After T.O.P there was Hey Come On!
They sang well and danced well.. people were singing along… Minu even did his solo dance..but at extended stage..couldn’t see clearly :(( Yet I guess age don’t lie… They seemed out of breath soon after the song ended =)))))))) I also saw Andy was holding onto his waist……..poor baby ;;A;;
Then they sang CRAZY!!!!! So happy…even though they didn’t sing Angel ;;-;; OMG… After this, there was Destiny of Love after.. The only song I recorded using my phone camera (LQ!!!).. Such a beautiful song..and their voices were amazing, I especially fell in love with Dongwannie’s voice here… So clear..his high note was captivating… So amazing ;;A;; Hyesung’s voice was angelic and melodious as usual…but was it just me because it wasn’t as clear..even a bit hoarse? ;;A;; I got a bit teary at Minwoo’s “saranghae..saranghae..” part at almost the end, bcos the MV scene of 10th anniversary suddenly replayed in my head………
Then talk session!!! During the first talk session, they said hello to fans.. spoke some English and Chinese, but mostly Korean.. Eric said something in English, but I couldn’t understand a word =))))) Dongwan said something in chinese “you guys are beautiful”, flirty oppayam.. =))) After this, they disappeared backstage and on screen there was VCR…the one when Jinnie said “Dongwan hyung sold members pics on his difficult time” (if im not mistaken..my memory jumped here and there XDD) =))))
Next is WILD EYES with their orange coat!! I think they sang live here..bcos I could clearly hear their voices… Eric and Minwoo and Hyesung were in front of me.. Minwoo jumped here and there on the chair..so cool XDDD Hyesung didn’t jump jump (THANKS GOD!!!). Spotting this cute scene: on a certain point where they hv to turn and dance around the chair, Eric just sat there LOL.. he then realized like “uh..we should turn now?” and quickly catching up with his bros..but Minwoo noticed his mistake, he was smiling (more like sneering) to him while flicking his fingers “ckkckck” like that XDDDDDD
PERFECT MAN came after XDD If I’m not mistaken the mic problem started around this time.. Saw Wannie ran to the side of the stage after perf (he took off his orange coat already..so it must be after this perf).. then his sulky face while holding onto his earphone was shown on huge screen too……… there goes my cheerful oppayam………….because he obviously was in bad mood after that >_>
For TIME MACHINE, HOW DO I SAY, and EUSSHA EUSSHA they were running around the stage…. mostly on the extended stage so I can’t see them clearly… but around eussha eussha/how do I say..Minu was in front of pen B..and stood very close to us while waving and smiling so cutely <333
The fanchant for Eussha Eussha was so loud.. as Shinhwa also asked us to sing along..especially during chorus XDD
I watched MinSyung moment where Minwoo wiped off Hyesung’s sweat… and Eric slightly put his arms around Hyesung’s waist…. ahhh so cuuuteee…too bad it happened not in front of my eyes.. They were in extended stage at that time… Many cute things happened there.. and I seriously despised the camera men!!! I mean..they didn’t catch those cute scenes at all..or focused on wrong person at most time! Like Eric was rapping yet they showed Andy’s face..and many other things.. ==” So many moments escaped from my eyes just bcos of this! DDD8<
During How Do I Say, at Hyesung’s solo part.. as usual they were all clinging on his feet XDDD In fancam, there was even Syung summoned Eric and pointed his feet to him.. =))) Sadly, cameramen (AGAIN) didn’t show this on the huge screen..I only saw Hyesungie pointed his fingers to someone, asking to come to him…and IT WAS ERIC!! can’t see it.. >_<
For Eusha Eusha break dance..Only RicMin did it.. Andy and Jinnie were just standing there and watched them.. At first I was like “huh..why Jinnie and Wannie didn’t dance?” Then later I knew Jinnie injured his back ;;A;; Hyesung was standing somewhere else I forgot..while Wannie..I didn’t remember..maybe he ran somewhere to fix his mic again.. It did happened several times.. During “How Do I Say” I saw Hyesung ran from extended stage to backstage, mic problem >_<
There was a talk session during this time too.. I took some blurry pics LOL..yet caught where Wannie wiped Andy’s sweat.. how sweet ❤
the WanDy’s pic is my best shot ==”
They disappeared backstage again after this…and back with Re-Love and On the Road… <33333 for Re-Love they were all sitting on a chair..and for On the Road they were all singing with standing mics XD One thing I like about them is, while singing ballads, they never only stood there and sang… Always having many gestures, even did some fan services (too bad no hugging in Singapore) XDD
Lucky me during On the Road…my Wansyung were standing in front of meh!!! XDDDDDDDD I tried to take a pic..but it were all soooo blurry……. :((
They sang Deep Sorrow after.. I expected some Ricsyung moments here..but Hyesung sat so far away from Eric… He was a bit upstairs..and Eric was several steps down from him.. Hyesung sat with Minwoo.. and Andy sat at the other side of Minwoo… Got MinDy’s moment..when Minwoo hugged and ppoppooo Andy during the song XDDDDDD I must say their voices in this song was totally amazing…sultry and soothing at the same time.. they should have more songs like this!!!
They also did some talk session here..only a while.. but I forgot in which timing and what did they talk about #fail XDDD
Next up is the song they only performed once in 7 years like Dongwannie said: WEDDING XD I guess I can understand why..the choreo was really complicated..with all those footwork.. But they pulled it off really well.. moving so smoothly..flowing like water… I think they did it live too..correct me if I’m wrong.. XDD Hyesungie was standing in front of me during this song..kind of having difficulty to focus on other members when he was in front of me like that hohoho.. ANYWAY..every time he was around pen B..there was a tall fan who always put her big HYESUNG banner, blocking my view and other SHCJs’ (she was tall and brought big banner..how cool was that?!). Even SHCJs from Japan who were standing beside me, shoving her banner down several times already..but she persisted. THANK YOU FOR BLOCKING OUR VIEWS ^^ When Wedding ended..I only could say “DAEBAK!!”
They disappeared backstage again after that.. Soon after, we heard Once in a Lifetime intro..and people started pulling out their flags, getting ready ready… Few people waving theirs already…when we’re supposed to wave it on “yeongwonhi hamke….” only XDDDDD anyway..the flag show was reallllyy kanji bbb.. Despite not all people followed the instruction..it was still so beautiful to see… Too bad I didn’t take any pics.. :(( And during this song, people were raising and waving their flags, and singing along to the song… When the song ended..I saw Minwoo and Hyesung’s eyes were teary.. The other looked speechless yet touched.. Minwoo then said “Everyone..tonight..you look really beautiful..” and drew a little heart with his hands.. Will never forget on how they looked after the flag show……..I guess it must be so beautiful and breathtaking from the stage.. <3333333333 SHCJs Kanji b!!!!!!!!! (^o^)b
They sang I Pray 4 You and Jam #1 after that,,running around the stage and spent most of times in extended stage again U_U During I Pray 4 U, Minwoo asked SHCJs to sing…and seeing the fancam..I think we did a good job singing it.. hohho XDDDDD Because they were mostly on extended stage, I couldn’t see what they did… :((
After this was the talk session again… They did an impromptu acapella “Singapore Song” Dongwannie started first.. then Minwoo and Junjin added some music in it..then VOILA! a song was created.. They’re so random I swear =))))))) Before “HURTS” started.. they went to extended stage..I heard Dongwannie said “the huge monitor died”.. apparently so..because there were people fixing it on stage, and for a while it didn’t show anything..grhhm..
Anyway while waiting for the monitor and Hurts prep on stage, they were talking in Korea about many things… I think at this time Jinnie asked whether we watched Shinhwa Broadcast or not.. He even teased Andy about Kiwi Prince, making him flustered and walked off the extended stage sulkily =)))))) People in pen B kept screaming “BBUING BBUING!!!” several times already in every talk session..and this time, Minwoo and Dongwan seemed to hear it, they turned their backs to pen B and asked “bbuing bbuing?” to which we answered “NEEEEHHH!!!!!!” and they then asked Eric to do it =)))))) Too bad he was back-facing me and of course, this scene wasn’t shown on the huge monitor… ==” Watching their talk session was like watching Shinhwa Broadcast LIVE , really :3 I’ll never mind if they do this talk session half of the concert time LOL..
and then.. HURTS!!!!!
This song is incredibly beautiful for me.. Never got bored listening to it.. Seeing them singing it in front of me was <3333333 This time it was Eric and Dongwan who were in front of me.. Dongwannie and Hyesungie and Jinnie were standing while Andy, Minwoo (I BARELY SAW HIM!! WHO TOLD MINI MINWOO TO SIT DOWN??!!! ;;A;;), and Eric were sitting on the props.. Here, again, I was mesmerized by Dongwannie’s voice…how could he sound soo soo good…OMG……. Minwoo’s voice sounded so soothing here too…and his falsetto ❤ Hyesung’s voice here is better than in DoL before..sounded soothing yet so powerful XD I love their chorus parts..OMG so beautiful…….. ;;A;; Eric’s rap in this song was even more captivating LIVE..those eyes of his and his stare during the rap was so…aahhh…<3333 People were screaming out loud at his part when they were calm at others’ part XDDDDDDD
They were talking again after this, waiting for people to remove the Hurts props.. Eric and Andy were standing in front of me.. Saw RicDy’s moments.. Eric pulled Andy’s ear..and Andy was like “mwo?!” then they stood closer and Eric kept playing around with his maknae… XDD
after Hurts, they sang VENUS. As expected, the fanchant is the loudest and clearest here… Dunno why but this song seemed so fast to me.. Like they just started singing and suddenly it ended…. :(( I even almost missed Hyesung’s bitch face..bcos I’m focusing myself on MinJinDy at the front ahhahah.. Love Hyesung’s solo part and the E-R-I-C which came after.. Thanks God watching his live this time didn’t remind me of Shinhwa Broadcast ep 8 where he rapped using the mickey headband and make ups ;;A;; =)) I really love the dance part near the song’s ending too…. ❤
Concert was nearing the ending now… it was Brand New after.. it’s so cooll to see them singing and dancing it in front of my eyes.. totally daebak! XDDDD Again…this song went too fast for me.. Or was it because all the dancers who were on stage? XD anyway I saw the dancers at pen A were fooling around and pointing+laughing at the dancers in pen B during this song.. XDD Oppayam’s adlibs was at its best in this song…. <33333 after Brand New they were saying goodbye and went backstage ;;A;;
but SHCJs keep chanting “Encore!” and “Shinhwa san!!”
They appeared again with navi shirt..while the dancers were wearing the white shirt.. Fans started throwing things on stage and wish Shinhwa would pick it up XDD They sang Yo! and Oh! during encore..mostly in extended stage so I couldn’t see mucho…… ToT I only saw Eric picked up a headband and put it on Jinnie/Andy (forget :p) then Dongwan picked up the fan from SHCJ Indo at the end..thrown by @Orangie XDD and I also saw Eric picked up a rubber chick and played with it with cute expression heeeheehe.. Minwoo sprayed water on fans and threw his towel… Jinnie threw it earlier after Perfect Man (or around that time)..and @kie2703 caught it, saying his heavy make up smudged all over the towel.. =)))))
Finally it was really over with them bowing 90 degrees to the audience, MinDy’s hugs, and RicJin’s heart at the end…. My moody Wansyung already disappeared somewhere backstage ;;A;;
Over all I think the concert was really cool.. They performed LIVE, their danced were synchronized though not so-perfectly (you can watch fancams and pause it randomly..could see their dances aren’t 100% sync XD) XDDDD They were interacting with fans, talking and throwing a lot of jokes..even though Dongwannie and Hyesungie were in bad mood because of technical problem that night..
Hyesungie didn’t talk much..even Andy talked and smiled more than Hyesungie…Although things didn’t go well that night bcos of technical problem, and they were obviously pissed off, yet they still showed us a great show…still interact that much, did many fanservices…. Even for Dongwannie who looked very upset (even threw his water bottle angrily) still did some talking and even came up with the “Singapore Song”.. The most memorable moment for me was during the flag show where all of them looked stunned and even teary… XD
Even though some people and maybe Shinhwa themselves seemed unhappy about the venue.. I found it was quite pleasant.. We got aircon and charging places while queuing OMG!!! and bcos the ballroom wasn’t too large, people who were sitting down still could see them clearly, not in mini-size… Though it’ll be better if the organizer put the seats as in stadium…so people who sat at the back could still see them…. >_>
They said they’ll be back next year to Singapore..
Hopefully they’ll keep their promise..
See you next year, Shinhwa!! Whether in Singapore, Seoul, or another place.. ^_^/~
P.S: watching concert in wedges killed my feet successfully……….went barefoot after concert.. -_-;;
P.P.S: Minwoo did “uri neeuun…….” fans answered “Shinhwa imnida!!” but when he continued “Singapore neuuun…….” fans went silent =)))))) until Minwoo continued with “Singapore neun Shinhwa imnida!!” while chuckling… Lame jokes, oppar XDDDDDDD
