Annyeonghaseyo Lovelies! This is admin KahWai fan account of Her Korea Trip in Seoul, South Korea. I was in Korea for 7 days and I went to Mount Sorak as well as Seoul :) I'll only be writing on my experience in Seoul, specifically only for all the K-pop SJ stuff I did ^.^ Enjoy reading!
IF YOU WANT TO TAKE ANY INFORMATION AND PICTURES, please credit me and SUPER JUNIOR ETERNAL ELF :)
Super Junior Yesung's Handel and Gretel Cafe - 55 Yeouido-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul
Honestly, when I reached there, I was truly in heaven even from across the street when I saw the cafe HAHA! You guys already know how much I love Yesung! Meeting my in laws (LOL) is so scary and made me nervous like "WHAT IF THEY DON"T LIKE ME?" or "WHAT IF THEY DON"T UNDERSTAND WHAT I"M SAYING?". All these questions in my head was just crazy.
Anyways, I took a picture outside the cafe and as you can see in the picture I posted, Yesung Omma was actually looking at me while i took picture :) YAY! And then I went in, and Yesung Omma was at the counter looking at us, she's so pretty and looked so young and somehow I immediately had the courage to talk in Korean LOL.
This is what we talked about: ITS ALL IN KOREAN, BUT I TYPE IT OUT IN ENGLISH FOR YOUR CONVENIENECE OKAY? :))
Me : Yesung Omma, right?
Yesung Omma : Yes, I am :)
Me : Wow, you're so pretty! Annyeonghaseyo, my name is Kah Wai and we like Super Junior a lot, and we are Malaysian fans :)
Yesung Omma : Wow, oh yes! Thank you, thank you :)
Me : Anyway, this present here, can you please pass to Yesung Oppa? PLEASE PLEASE, I worked so hard for this present :) I ask for your help, Ommonim, please pass to him okay?
Yesung Omma : Yes, sure, I will pass to him :)
She took the present from me and then I opened it for her to see, (THERE WAS A CARD, TEDDY BEAR, TWO FOLDED ROSES and THE PHOTOBOOK inside).
She took the card and see, so I told her that it was a card for Yesung Oppa :)
Me : Once again, Ommonim, please please pass this to Yesung Oppa, okay?
Yesung Omma : Of course I will, don't worry :)
Me : Ommonim, can we take pictures?
Yesung Omma : Yes, okay :)
Me : Thank you so much for your help! By the way, can you sign this book for me?
Yesung Omma : Omo, i don't know how to. Wait for Yesung Appa to come back from washroom, okay?
Me : Okay, sure!
YAY! And then she took the present and kept it :) Anyways, I hope Yesung really sees it!
Yesung Appa came back and then he signed my book :)
Yesung Appa : Annyeonghaseyo, what's your name?
Me : Annyeonghaseyo, my name is KahWai *he wrote it down and I spelt it out for him*
Yesung Appa : Oh, KahWai *he said it in the Korean way, like Kah U-ai HAHA*
Me : Yes, that's right :)
After that he wrote everything in Korean in the book :)
Me : Abeonim, what is this? *points at Korean word*
Yesung Appa : Oh, this? This means "Yesung Appa" *he smiled cause i was so random*
Me : Oh, right right, sorry my Hangul is very bad :( But, I like Yesung Oppa very much :)
Yesung Appa : Oh, really? Wow, HAHA, It's okay, *he called the waitress who could speak a little English to come over*
Me : Please tell Yesung's parents that they are very nice and friendly, thank you! Oh, and please inform them that I got help from my Korean neighbour to write in Hangul in my photobook. So please pass it to Yesung Oppa ^.^
Waitress : Alright, sure.
The waitress then translated everything to both Yesung's parents who were standing there, smiling as I spoke English to the waitress LOL. The were so excited to listen to what I wanna say, I felt so honoured seriously :)
Me : Yesung Appa, can I take picture with you too?
Yesung Appa : Sure, let's take picture, where is good? Here or there? *he was referring at which part of the shop should we take the picture at*
Me : Here is good at the main counter :)
Yesung Appa : Oh, who is this? *he was referring to my mom who was standing with me*
Me : Oh, this is my mum :)
Yesung Appa : Ne, Annyeonghaseyo! Welcome!
Me : Ne, Kamsahamnida ^.^
And then, I realised that Jongjin (Yesung's dongsaeng) was also there and he was in the kitchen :) SO CUTE ^.^ The shop isn't that big, it's pretty cosy and cute, even the kitchen is tiny, just enough to prepare stuff :) And, Yesung Omma, Yesung Appa, Jongjin and a waitress was in the kitchen right behind the cashier. They just sat there and chat with each other. You can see everything in the shop, it's pretty tiny as I said :)
I ordered a Choco Latte, so I was standing at the counter ordering from Jongjin AHHHH :) And then, I asked him if I could use an old 10000 Korean Won, he was smiling and said "Yes, sure, of course you can". So damn cute cause I was being so silly LOL. Anyways, I saw this calendar on the counter and i took a picture of it. Jongjin Oppa saw and he took the calendar and pass it to me :) I was in heaven when he did that cause he is very cute as well OKAY!
I then started taking pictures around the cafe and then when my drinks arrive, Yesung Omma quickly passed me something, it was a sticker *refer to picture below* HAHA, i was gushing like a kid who just got candies but I still managed to say in Korean as I told her how cute the picture is and thank you so much :)
I sat down with my friends and drank my Choco Latte, it was okay, a little sweet for me though and then we had to leave for KBS Music Bank.
SO I WENT TO THE COUNTER WITH MY Unnie and said :
Me : Ommonim, we are leaving now :) Kamsahamnida!
Yesung Omma : Okay, take care, bye bye :)
My Unnie : Annyeonghaseyo *My unnie not that that good in Korean, she thought can use annyeonghaseyo to say bye too*
Yesung Omma laughed at my friend cause she's so funny :)
Me : Annyeongikaseyo Ommonim :)
Yesung Omma : Ye :)
My Unnie : Bye bye, bye bye :) Kamsahamnida!
Super Junior's Dorm - Seoul, Gwangjin-gu, Jayang 3(sam)-dong , The Sharp Star City Apartment, Building C, room 1101 & 1201
It was really cold when I reached there and my Korean tour guide immediately asked the security guard to open the door to let us in :) But, the security guard called up and then said that we need permission to enter and since we are a big group of 15 people, it's difficult to enter. SO, we said it's okay and just took pictures downstairs the apartment :)
It was so surreal to be there as I only saw it in pictures AND i was there for real :)))
SM Entertainment Building - 521 Apgujung 2 dong Kangnamgu Seoul
The building has a star, so pretty! When we reached, I was thinking, where IS THE SIDE DOOR that we always see in pictures? I thought they brought us to wrong building LOL, and then I started walking around the outside of the building and then I FOUND IT! Was so happy when I found it HAHA :) It was under construction but those Ahjusshi working there were nice to let me take picture YAY!
KBS Building Private tour & KBS MSUIC BANK - 18, Yeouido-dong, Yeongdeungpo-gu, 150-790 Seoul, Korea
The first thing I did when I reached was to find KBS Cool FM a.k.a Sukira HAHA. I found it and saw so many fan signed outside the studio and the place where the fans had to stand to watch SUKIRA was outdoor NOT indoor! I was fooled when I watch SUKIRA online because I thought that the fans actually stood inside the studio but were only separate by a glass. They had a loud speaker outside the studio to communicate with the fans and it was freezing outside really :O
After that, we went on a private tour around KBS building by the KBS officials! I got some KBS magazines and some souvenirs for free :) When it was time for KBS Music Bank, we went in first cause we were like VIP guests while the other fans had to line up outside. LOL, i felt like a VIP MUAHAHA :)
We were seated at the third row from the stage and I saw Shinee Minho who was just staring at me, smiling, idk why! BUT I FELT HAPPY ANYWAYS :) *NO, I'm not cheating on Super Junior OKAY :)*
The music bank was awesome! I love Wonder Girls and SNSD and I got to see them live, amazing LOL :) And, from Music Bank, I like two new rookie groups which is APink (My My) and Double A (Because I'm Crazy). Incredible :)
SPAO Store - Myeongdong
I can't stop spazzing at SPAO LOL, SUPER JUNIOR POSTERS everywhereeeee :) WHEEE, in heaven LALALA! I took pictures with my husband a.k.a Yesung LOL. I'm a happy girl, I even got some stuff from SPAO, they aren't that expensive, i got a pink winter jacket! The one YOONA SNSD wore :)
Alright, that's all for now :) I hope you guys enjoyed it! We're happy as long as you fans are happy with us admins!
Enjoy the pictures and go see my ALBUM if you haven't seen it yet here :
Kamsahamnida, till next time! ^.^
