Anyway, when I came in, I was #21 but due to weird numbering I think I was around the 40th to 50th person for a signature. All good because being #21 is too early for my tastes - I get anxiety and need to rehearse before meeting my idols, especially Yunho and Changmin. My seat was facing the screen was second from the right, so I had a pretty decent view of Yunho until they moved his growing line around my way. One of the staff came around to write our names on the post-its and when I gave her the name "Lucky" she was really baffled. But she signed wrote it down for me anyway.
Before I go on, let me explain that right now I am doing a Catch Me giveaway to support TVXQ's album sales. You can find more details over at homin_yongwonhi (HERE) if you haven't been following me on Twitter. ^^ But at the start, I promised I would give away any signed CDs I get (you can still win a signed CD because the winner will be selected from the overall group of winners!), and thus for this fansign I labeled the CDs with "Lucky" for my name, because they are both going to a "lucky" fan. This is important for the fan account.
When the boys came in, Yunho talked about how excited he was to be doing the fansign in a theater because their MV was on display on the big screen. Then Changmin talked but his mic didn't work so Yunho handed his own over. While Changmin was talking, Yunho drank some vitamin water and puffed out his cheeks. They were given Vitamin water in yellow like the unofficial Catch Me color. When they took the mics back, Yunho was testing the broken one. His face was so cute as he spoke into it and got back no sound. As fans lined up, Yunho waved to everyone in the back with a huge smile. A fan gave him flowers early on (maybe sixth fan?) and he lit up. From here the telltale Yunho line began to form.
As I mentioned yesterday, the MV was playing on the screen and it would get quiet when it restarted. The first instance of hearing Yunho was him going "sore desu ka" and we all squeed at his cute Japanese. Yunho seemed really happy to receive a stuffed bear from one fan. In fact, anything fans showed him, including messages in the CD, he would pick up and look at carefully. I stopped taking notes at some point early on because there was just too much to point out that was adorable, so I just watched Yunho being cute. We heard a lot of laughter on his end.
When I got into line I had a hard time seeing them, but the closer I got the more I could see Changmin and noticed his feet are really big. The fan in front of me showed Changmin a small cloth doll she stitched of him and he looked really excited about it. Then I came up and here is how things went down...
CM: Hi~ M: I still really like your hair.
CM: ... -laughs and looks up- THANK YOU VERY MUCH! [I think he remembered that I told him his hair is the best last year. ;;]
M: I'm really looking forward to your Japanese movie.
M: -stuttering- But I hope you will come out in a Korean movie.
CM: -paused when Krn started; looks up with a "why are you dumb?" smile and says somethingto the effect of- But if you can't understand either way, what difference will it make?
So I had to process because my Korean is not the best and I nodded as I walked away. But Changmin was really cute when he said this and something may have been lost in translation, so I am only giving the gist of it. Don't judge him harshly. ^^ I share this as a testament to his snark, not to make him look bad.
Anyway I waited a bit before getting to Yunho - again, that line. When I finlly got to him, the manager was behind him and he froze and looked straight ahead as the manager spoke quietly into his ear, so I was just standing awkwardly with my CD held out while he listened. But I got to admire him a few extra moments, so ee lucky I guess. I wanted to start by telling him he is perfect, but he was surprised by the name on the post its so went all "LUCKY??" and threw me off track. Here is how it went:
M: Actually my name isn't Lucky but just meeting you is wonderful so I will be giving this CD to someone else.
YH: Ah to a friend?
YH: How kind~
M: -suffers brain death, stammers on- But so...for me...a heart...here... -points to post it- YH: Draw you a heart? -already drawing-
M: Yes. Thank you!
Security: Ok thank you move along.
M: Ah... ok... -flustere, dejected-
YH: -ignores Security request and picks up post it, summarizing Q- Which EXO member am I looking forward to?
M: -shocked he looked at all- Y-yes!
YH: -smiling all genuine as he answers- But I like them all!
M: ... -further brain death- I LOVE YOU OPPA!
YH: -laughs softly- Thank you.
And then I walked back and realized I forgot to wish him luck on the next musical. ㅠㅠ But when I turned back, he already had to move on.
Anyway, I returned to my seat and continued to watch and admire in silence till the girl after me started asking me where I am from. ^^ She was so kind and her favorite is Yunho, too, so we fangirled a bit over his cuteness. New boxes had to be brought out for their gifts because there were too many.
Oh, here's a cute snippet. There had been a boy there translating announcements into Japanese and he got to receive an autograph and he talked for a long time with Yunho. After getting his autograph, he walked directly to a corner and crouched down and lol looked so cute. Then he grabbed his bag and left.
When Changmin signed for the last fan, YH's line still had six people in it and fans started shouting to Changmin to get his attention now that there were no fans to hide him. So he had to look to the side and pretend to be busy but he kept cracking a smile. Once he started playing with his pen so I shouted, "Shim Changmin, shimshimhaeyo? (Are you bored?)"
During closing ment, Yunho said he was glad to meet fans up close and thanked the fans who were viewing in the back who couldn't get autographs. He also said it was the last fansign, I think, and a fan shouted DON'T GO and he said, "Yes, those are the lyrics to the song." He gave two big thumbs up to the fans. Changmin took a while to start up and I didn't hear much but he said to be careful of getting a cold.
Some asked about my impression upon seeing them. In short, they are physically perfect and both smile so genuinely. But the smiles are of a different quality. Changmin's has more of a boyish charm. He looked happy and healthy and alive. Yunho on the other hand is all sincerity. There is nothing warmer than his smile and he looks directly at every fan's face and into their eyes when he speaks to them. I said the first time I met them that though I am Yunho biased, Changmin stole my attention, but today it is still Yunho's smile I remember the most.
