[FANACCOUNT] JYJ Showcase in LA Part 8

JYJ in LA: Better than Christmas

I was so excited to see JYJ in LA, I can’t even describe it. Even though it wasn’t all five of DBSK, I still had my faith for them and was going to enjoy this while it lasted. I spent the two bus-one train ride drilling the fanchants which I’d memorized the day before during school. It might’ve been kind of unnecessary, but it couldn’t have hurt. LA’s bus system kinda….sucks (Compared to Long Beach, at least to me), so I had trouble navigating once I got off the train and was trying to look for the right bus stop to take me to the Galen Center (all the traffic didn’t help)

I left my house at 3:30 and got to the venue a little after 5:00. I expected the line to be incomprehensibly long, so I wasn’t surprised when I had to walk a ways to get to the end which was in front of the Radisson hotel when I got there. I heard a lot of conversations in Korean, Japanese, and Chinese and the line was predominantly Asian, again, expected. I think other ethnicities were far and few in between, and I think I was one of the maybe 3-5 black girls there.

I made a special top to go to the show and wore my lovely leather black boots. I looked a little dressy compared to other people, but that was okay. I also hand-made the special project sign. I figured that would be a good substitute since I couldn’t reserve a lightstick (Insert ‘aww’ here).

I usually give concert staffs a half-hour after they say they’re going to let you in because that’s usually how long it takes, but I guess it depends on how long the line is to some extent also.

Anyway, the line started moving at about 7:00, as originally planned. I went to the bathroom, and got in my seat. I was in section 210 and surprisingly got a great view, posting status updates to my facebook before and while the show was happening via my cellphone (I couldn’t tweet ‘cause I couldn’t get Wi-Fi in there for my iPod Touch…but I forgot I had my phone connected with my Twitter already ^^’’ oopsie)

Once the show started, the room was full of enthusiastic Cassies ready to see their boys. As they rose up onto the stage, I felt a wave of satisfaction with my teenage life that I was finally seeing these guys in person. They started off with Be the One, then Empty, then Found You, then Ayyy Girl, and finished off with the Empty remix*.

Between Be the One and Found You was the Q&A session where Junsu recapped ‘Oh my god, sun’ for us and the explained the meanings behind their Twitter names. I thought Yoochun’s was especially clever (6002 in Korean sounds like ‘Yoochun’). Junsu said ‘Don’t Forget’ in English when he explained the 0101 in his Twitter SN is his birthday. It was cute!

JaeJoong explained that his Twitter name is an abbreviation of ‘Micky, Junsu, JaeJoong’ (I guess he took one of his fan nicknames and made it ‘JeJe’)

After their Twitter names were explained, they introduced us to Mr. John the Egg from Twitter (@elbowyeish), who turned out to be one of the staff. He walked on the main stage and gave Yoochun an egg, who gave it to JaeJoong, and he tried to throw the egg at the audience as a joke XD

After they said their final goodbye and descended off the stage, they played the Ayyy Girl MV, which I decided to stay for. Getting out was kind of a hassle, but I made it out fine. The train station was closed unexpectedly due to construction, so I had to have my parents pick me up. It even started raining, but I didn’t mind, I felt all warm and fuzzy inside and more blissful than most people do on a calm Christmas night. I finally saw live and in person the boy band (or 3/5 of them…) that I’ve been listening to since I was 12 years old and have given me so much joy over the years as my only true source of pure happiness in this crazy world. If it was this awesome with only three of them, the day I see them as five again will be even more amazing.

Overall, the show was indescribable (I wish I was longer…), the whole night was amazing and unforgettable, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. AKTF, my fellow Cassies! :)
*The set list might be mixed up; I don’t remember the order clearly. I was too excited.
I forgot my camera, so I couldn’t take pics or fancams, sorry!

[FANACCOUNT] JYJ Showcase in LA Part 7 - DBSKnights' Staff

My mind has been blown. So blown that it took me two days to recover enough to write this.

Okay, not really. I procrastinate.

It really was mind blowing, though. I really hate to say cliché things like this, but thinking about seeing these boys, imagining hearing them live, has been my one motivation whenever things in my life weren't going right. And boy, did they make up for those times.

Mel (DBSKnights admin) and Alexis came to pick me up at around 6:40AM, and we drove over to LA.
By the time we got there, around 8AM, a little line of girls had formed in front of the doors. After standing around for a while, security told us to leave school grounds. We didn't know what to do so we ended up wandering around for a while… then some fans from the front of the original line saw us later, and told us they were making a new line in the same order as the original one.

We arrived there, and that ended up being our place in line.
After some more people started gathering, Mel, her sister Charmaine, and I started to hand out the preordered shirts. Mel found some Japanese fans that I got to talk to. They told me about how amazing DBSK was in Tokyo Dome. I was squirming with jealousy.

I got to see Peggy and Rachel (Admins of Knights) too! I was so happy. These girls really work hard for fans and I'm really happy and proud that I can call them my friends.
My other internet friends started arriving too! I got to see Lucy and Regina again, the girls in charge of http://fuckyeahtohoshinki.tumblr.com.
I also got to see Tristan (Xiahker) again! He was really excited about how many fans he was able to find in the line. :)

I was hanging out with some other friends closer to the back of the line when suddenly, everyone shifted forward. I got anxious and ran back to my spot… and saw a huge crowd of people. The organized line idea was gone. Everyone on floor was trying to rush in as a clump. Considering how early we had arrived, yes, we were somewhat upset at seeing people that were behind us in the line so far ahead.

But our whole group was able to squeeze ourselves in together. After waiting another 30 minutes in our new, organized line, we walked into the building! An employee told us which door to enter through, and we ran to our spot on the floor. We ended up right behind the people at the very front, behind a black fence blocking us from the stage. It was a phenomenal spot. I was blown away at the thought that the boys would be less than 6 feet away from us. SIX. FEET.

-cough- Anyway.
We waited, extremely squished, for about 30 more minutes… and suddenly the lights turned off, and a spotlight shone on the MCs. Everyone was already going berserk and I started to worry about what was going to happen when the boys showed up…

And then they were there.

They rose up from inside the back side of the stage. The boys I had listened to on my iPod. The boys I saw in my magazines. The loves of my life. They were there.

Yoochun was on our side of the stage. Everyone else was screaming, waving their lightsticks around, but I just stood there and gaped. He was the most gorgeous thing I had ever seen in my life, I'm not even kidding. His jet-black hair shined as the lights reflected off of it. And then I noticed his pants, oh god the shiny silver pants. I adored them. He looks so much skinnier in real life.

Then I turned to the middle. Jaejoong. If Yoochun was the most gorgeous thing I had seen in my life, Jaejoong is the most beautiful. His honey colored hair sparkled, and his face glowed. I'm not even glowing. He has a glow. He also looked somewhat skinnier. Don't ask me how that's possible.

Then Junsu, oh god the boy whose Japanese used to fail and make me laugh when I felt like crying, the boy whose bright smile made the sun's light look dull, the boy whose voice I would do anything to hear through my own ears. That boy was standing there, 6 feet from me. His soft-orange colored hair was flat, not the way I like it, but damn, did he pull it off. His head is not quite as tiny as Yoochun or Jaejoong. It made me want to go up to him and pinch his cheeks. Bias completely aside, I like his dancing the best. He moves with his hips. And then his voice, oh god, I had to strain so hard to hear it over the screams and squeals, but it was there. It was him. He was standing in front of me, and his voice was in my ears.

Empty
I am now officially addicted to the dance. Even though we were squished, some fans still attempted to do the dance for the "let it go~"s. It was fun.
AND THEN (This part requires caps; it must be shouted in your head too) AT THE "SO WHY DENY MY HEART" PART JUNSU HIPTHRUSTS TOWARD US AND I GOT IT ON VIDEO AND MY LIFE WAS COMPLETED.
Sooo, moving on.
Be The One
I will honestly tell you that I do not have any memory of this part of the showcase. I think I was screaming too loud.
Be My Girl
This is my favorite song in the album. They harmonized at the "tonight~" part and it was so gorgeous. They really need more songs like this.
AND THEN (Caps time!) ONE TIME, WHEN I SCREAMED "JUNCHAN," HE TURNED AND LOOKED AT ME (or in my direction. But I know he heard me). AND THEN HE RAISED HIS EYEBROWS, SMILED, AND DID A MINI BODYROLL. I know I saw it. I didn't get it on camera because I was watching him with my own eyes. It was beautiful, you guys. Just plain beautiful.
Q&A
Junsu: "I'm Junsu. Ohmygassun." /hides
Jaejoong: "Hi, I'm Jaejoong!" /shoots radiant smile
Yoochun: "Hey guys, are you ready to have fun!!" ~~etc etc

When Yoochun was saying those words, I yelled "TANOSHIMU JUNBI OKAY," (We're ready to have fun) because that was his famous line at the Japanese concerts. I really hope he heard it. ;~~~;
Found you/Chajatta
Yoochun started singing and I started crying. I remembered how I had fallen for their Japanese ballad songs and wondered if I'd ever get to hear them. They were born to sing songs like this. We were successful at the fanchants, and the boys seemed to notice. Yoochun beamed with joy. Jaejoong seemed focused on getting his voice out smoothly (which he was able to, thank goodness). And Junsu looked… overwhelmed. I don't think he was imagining this huge a fanbase in LA.
Ayy Girl
The lights switched off and the boys and dancers got into the formation… and the Empty Remix started playing. They just stood there for a bit, then Yoochun turned to the right and laughed apologetically. Then someone said "Sorry!" and screams exploded again. (I later heard it was Jaejoong, in which case, I would have screamed with them a;sdkjfa;lj)
Even though this song doesn't really seem like one that you could show off vocals with… they did. It was heavenly.
And I'm just going to say: THE DANCE IS A WHOLE LOT COOLER WHEN THEY'RE IN FRONT OF YOUR EYES.
Empty Remix
JUNSU HIPS WHY YOU DENY MY HEART.
Ahem. Anyway.
Yoochun was on our side of the stage, and he just looked like a little boy with candy, having the time of his life. He shouted "Jump, jump!" like he did at the Japanese concerts, and oh, did we jump. The whole floor was jumping as one unit. It must have looked funny from the stage

Junsu and Jaejoong also smiled as they sang, but they didn't jump. Junsu just kind of bent his knees sometimes.

And then… they were gone.

It was amazing.

And because I can't find any more adjectives to describe the epicness of this showcase, it's going to end here.

Thank you so much for reading♥

[FANACCOUNT] Welcoming JaeChunSu in Las Vegas

On the 13th some friends and I were hanging out getting ourselves excited for the showcase when we decided to go to the airport and wait for JYJ to come in. We got there around 10pm. We waited for just about an hour(maybe a little more) and around 11 or 11:30 they finally arrived. We followed them out of the airport and into the parking garage. My friend went up to their manager and asked if we could get autographs, he said that they were checking in at the hotel and if we hurried to the hotel we could get autographs from them then (and surprisingly he actually told us what hotel they were staying at). When we got to the hotel we waited by the front desk for half an hour and didn't see anyone. My friend spotted their manager and asked him again if we could get an autograph, he said no that they were sleeping.

Then on the 14th after the showcase we went back to the hotel and waited by the front desk for about an hour. We decided to walk around and see if we could find them. We ran into other fans that said they had seen them but they didn't know where they went. So my friend and I walked around a little more and right as we were about to give up hope I saw JaeJoong to my right playing poker. My friend went up to him and asked for an autograph but he was in the middle of a game so I told him that we would wait. Maybe 15 seconds later he called us over and autographed something for the each of us. A few tables down YooChun was playing, at first their manager said we couldn't get autographs but YooChun said it was ok and signed something for my friend and I. We were just about to leave when we saw JunSu walk over. He signed something for us and after we said thank you he said 'Thankoo' that was the most adorable thing we had heard that whole night~! In person they look even better then they do in pictures, on TV or on the computer, I didn't think that was possible ^^

She is soooo lucky!

I had the best hour of my life... I was in the very front on the rail, like 4 feet away from JYJ, Hero Jaejoong looked dead at me, Micky has the cutest laugh in the world, & I was spazzing about how cute he is THE WHOLE TIME, and Junsu pelvic thrusted right in front of me like 500 billion times! & I also signed a balloon and was able to give it to their staff as a present for them! I also screamed I LOVE YOU YOOCHUN & he smiled! ^_____________^

[FANACCOUNT] JaeChunSu in LAX Airport

FAN ACCOUNT OF SIGHTING THEM AT THE LAX
We found out via twitter around 9:30pm that JYJ was going to airport (LAX) right after their concert to catch the 11:30pm flight to Korea. It took us a while to decide to go to the airport because this was our first time "stalking" anyone, and we didn't know if we would actually be able to find them. We arrived at the airport at around 10:00pm. We parked in the international parking lot, and crossed the street to get towards the LAX building. My friend and I were running because we thought we might miss seeing them. Once we started running to get through the doors of LAX, we glanced over at a hot guy smoking outside by a pillar. Then we did a double take as we realized it was Jaejoong. My jaw literally dropped and I was staring at him with bulging eyes as we walked through the doors. Once we were inside we noticed around 20 fans hanging around, carrying light boards. This confirmed that it was Jaejoong. I was hyperventilating and talking gibberish to my friend while hitting her, lol. My friend was calm, though, and she said, there goes Micky. He walked right past us, but I didn't even notice!! Then he stood in the baggage checkout line. Then I noticed red hair, and I was like OMG! Junsu! So we stared at them until they started walking. They were surrounded by a lot Korean staff members. Then we followed them. Then they got in line to board the plane. They got into an express lane, so they disappeared quickly.

[FANACCOUNT] JYJ Showcase in LA Part 6

This is my #JYJinLA fan report, and it's a picture-less block of text because I'm writing this in an airport on my cell. Mom and I woke up at 4:OOam to catch our flight to LAX. When we landed we rushed to get changed and took the airport flyaway to union station. Then we boarded the subway and took the Purple Line *ROFLing forever* to Normandie and Wilshire, where we dropped our bags off at the Wilshire hotel. I just want to take a moment to plug the Wilshire, we went to be at the same hotel as the boys, but stayed because the staff was calm, and helpful despite dealing with fans all weekend, and the rooms were super nice for the rates. We bolted out of the hotel and into a cab who had no idea what the Galen Center was and ran up our fare intentionally. But at that point I didn't care, I just wanted to get in line ASAP because @ 6, I'd heard that there were already 30 people in line. When we arrived @ 9 there were around ten people in the physical in line but 61 who had arrived super early and signed in. A few fans were making arrangements with security all morning, and the line was well organized, and orderly. A few security people told us that they would move our line to the official area at 5PM, and that they were cool with us creating a line as long as we stayed calm and didn't block pedestrian traffic. I want to give a big shout out and digital hug to Tami, Sam, Victoria, and all of the other Cassies (sorry that I didn't catch everyone's name) next to us in line who passed the time by creating fangifts, and jamming to TVXQ songs. We all signed the gift bag with our twitter accounts, mom put OMG SUN! on the bag, and lol at whoever put "Shane don't take this.". Also thanks to all of the DBSK Knights staff, Shades of Jaed, JYJSF crew, and the girls who organized the free glowstick project. You guys did a great job of making sure the fan projects and chants were executed without a hitch. Thank you ladies who brought the books to sign for JYJ. My mom and I had a great time because of all of you.

At 3:OOpm things stared to disintegrate. Without naming names, and talking about it in depth, to make a long story short at least 100 people cut in front of hundreds of people who had been waiting in line all day, in the cold. Throughout the afternoon and early evening people continued to cut, and some people didn't bother to line up at all and just shoved into the front when security opened the doors. A lot of us risked our spots in line to talk to security, but they said that they weren't going to do anything, even though these were the same people who told us our line would be honored previously. Some even got really condescending and said they expected chaos, and told us that they would "handle us," and none of us would be able to get in, even though people in line were actually not the ones instigating the conflicts with security. Eventually a bunch of people asked my mom, who was one of the oldest people in line, to talk to the guards. I'm so sorry to anyone with reserved tickets who got yelled at for not being in line--things were just really out of control at that point. There was NOT a table for fangifts at that point, but we begged and pleaded with the green shirt PD until he agreed to put a small table for gifts in place. Props to the girl who initiated the discussion with the staff.

I believe they opened the doors for the people with reserved seats @6:30, they finally started letting the floor standing in about an hour later. The security wasn't as tough as we were expecting so I felt bad for everyone who was told to not bring their cameras in, when we were in line. Finally we were inside and about four rows back from the stage, so we were only slightly further back from the stage than we were at Vegas, but in the center this time! I was the second tallest person in floor standing (only the guy from Arkansas was taller) but right off the bat the shoving was intense. All of the tallest people got pushed to the center, and even I was having a heck of a time seeing the screen.

Everyone was amped, we cheered for the mic-check, we cheered for the light check, we cheered when they put the fan signs on the screen (I love you, person with the "Your heart is empty, let me fill it for you sign), we cheered for the staff that were joking around on stage. And we also cheered on cue for the press, who spent a long time taking pictures of the crowd and fansigns. In the midst of all of this, some girls next to us caught a glimpse of Yoochun and Jaejoong, in the VIP area offstage, and then we reaaaaaaly screamed. We had a great chant of JYJ going until Arden finally came on stage, and pointed out Shane standing by the audience. I was so happy the showcase was finally starting because it was delayed to allow everyone to file into their seats. The stadium wasn't packed because a lot of people with paid tickets upgraded to better seats when they became free. But there was a decent crowd, and a STRONG red ocean.

YES WE WERE READY FOR JYJ!! And they rose from the platforms on stage to the ear shattering, sonic boom of screams, (and stampeding feet from the floor section as we were all shoved headfirst into the stage, and onto each other.). I'm sure you've all seen the pictures, but I'd like to take a moment to thank the Coordis who dressed the boys last night, Junsu looked so handsome, Jaejoong was perfect as always, and Yoochun's rock star outfit was a work of art. I can't say enough about how attractive they are in real life, even in comparison to the photos. It amazes me every time I see them. And Jaejoong's head may be large, but it's more like a watermelon in real life, than the Hindenburg--it looks smaller than some pictures.

The set list was the same as New York and Vegas. Empty, Be the One, VR of the "thanks to" Be my Girl, VR of the making of the album, Q&A, Chajatta, Ayyy Girl, Empty Remix, and the Ayyy Girl MV. But the energy was so different from the Vegas showcase. We were super unified during all the fan chants, and everyone was screaming and generally spazzing out during every body wave, smile, hairflip, and tongue appearance that occured. The boys seemed REALLY happy. Yoochun was grinning from ear to ear constantly, Jaejoong was making cute rockstar poses, and waving to the fans between each song. Junsu had much more energy, and really got into interacting with the fans. And they sounded soooo Fing good. I've always appreciated their live performances, more than their albums, but they were even more polished, and cohesive, than they were during the other showcases. Some of Junsu's adlibs were crazy! It was such a relief because Jaejoong's voice hasn't been in good condition, and we all heard that his voice was breaking during the album launch party for the press.

I couldn't hear the boys much during the Q&A because of the screaming, and fighting for my life to stay on my feet, but their English intros and talking about their twitters, and Micky Christmas was so adorable. I only wish the Q&A was longer. ): I also wish Jaejoong had really tossed out John the egg to us. Shane's appearance in Jaejoong's white Vegas outfit, as he serenaded Arden with Empty, was also worth mention. He said he was the same size as Jae, and we all shouted "lies" at him, and he accused us of calling him fat. There was also a lot of screaming at people to lower their signs. Fans with signs, we still <3 you, but no one could see Junsu and Jaejoong over them. The MCs followed the script and said that JYJ were excited to sing a Korean song for us, and they broke into the best performance of Chajatta that I've heard from them. Junsu and Yoochun were making great eye contact with us front and center people, and Yoochun pointed right at me when I was singing along, with one of his trademark Chunfaces. I could finally see Jaejoong, head on, because I was on his left unlike last time, when I was on his right and his habit of unconsciously turning his head kicked in. I'm still grinning and freaking out about how awesome it was, now!

They played one last VR recording that I didn't see during the other showcases, about the boy's experiences recording their album. We all roared every time they appeared. Finally the showcase was coming to a close, and there was one last wild push from behind us, to the front. I found myself six feet away from where I'd begun, and nearly fell over in multiple directions. The boys and their dancers appeared in formation, and the tell-tale instrumental for the Empty remix started playing. The crowd was so confused and we all started screaming "EEEeeeeh?". Both Yoochun and Jaejoong giggled, and said sorry, before they broke into Ayyy Girl, as planned. I LOVE the live arrangement of Ayyy Girl, even though I barely listen to the track when I play the album. I even like the acapella freestyle portion, and Kanye's rap when it's in the middle. Junsu rocks the song, and the dance breaks. The staging of the female dancers was much better than it was in Vegas where their positions were awkward, and the boys' body waves were super sexy! I love the part where they all run to the sides of the stage, but we were a sea of flying bodies by that point, as people rushed over to them. I am so sorry to anyone that I fell into.

The boys thanked us in English, and said that they wished they could see us more, and were planning on coming back to LA again, for a full concert. Jae said "thank you for everything" and he's obviously been practicing since he said it last week because his pronunciation is getting really good. Yoochun finished the ment off with "Are you ready LA? Last song, Empty remix!". The Floor turned into a rave, and everyone was jumping from the beginning. I didn't feel ready for the last song, because I didn't want the showcase to end. Empty remix is my favorite song on the Beginning, and my favorite song live because the energy is so incredible--it reminds me of Tohoshinki's live performances of Somebody To Love. Jaejoong seemed really tired, but he still gave the performance his all, and he seemed happy that everyone shouted "Let it go" before he even pointed his mic to us. Junsu and Yoochun were feeding off the energy. They were making cute faces at the fancammers while the dancers were doing acrobatics. As the last notes of the song rang out, they ascended the steps, waving at everyone until they disappeared. The energy didn't dissipate throughout the Ayyy girl MV, and even though the show was over, everyone hung around for another 10 minutes cheering, and waving at the official film crew.

In the end, even though I stood in line for 11 hours, and came out of the showcase with cuts, sores, blisters and bruises, that hour was so worth it. I feel so lucky to have seen JYJ perform, not once but twice, and being at the last stop of the showcase tour was an experience that I'll never forget. I finally achieved my goal of seeing all five members of TVXQ perform, albeit at different times.

I was going to go to the airport and send the boys off last night, but my mom hadn't eaten all day so we went back to the Wilshire instead. Thanks again to all the fans that kept us company (hopefully we'll be able to find each other online), and the members of JYJ crew that listened to us, and organized everything. And thanks to JYJ who performed here when they could've just given up on the American leg of the tour. After two weeks of JYJ showcases, I'll be going through major withdrawals, but I guess it's a good thing that it will be a while before everyone has to spend all day in line again. I can't wait to see all of the pictures and fancams, when my flight lands.
