Giselle - in the throng

(no subject)

*Disclaimer: This fan account may not be as detailed as usual, because I was sleepy from having only slept 3 hours last night and gotten up at 4:30 AM for merch. ><;;

So SM went all out with the SMTown Music/Virtual Nation concept this year. The introduction to the concert was super elaborate and took much longer than expected.

First, it began with a drumline and then a brass band playing some music. Then it introduced Eeteuk, Shindong, and Hyukjae, who were basically introducing various countries' representatives (aka fans who signed up for the Global Package, I think). Each country had a person whose video was shown, giving a message to SMTown, and that country's reps got to walk down the field to the main flag pole (where the SMTown flag was to be hoisted) with an artist from SM. Here is a list of the countries and their paired SM artist. It should be noted that Henry looked super proud to be walking with Canada. I believe Jessica got confused about where she was going. Or maybe that was Chanyeol. Minseok was super happy and excited and waved and gave thumbs up almost the entire way. Kyuhyun did the derpiest dance on his way down.

And that there is that. ><;;
