A code between Lee Jong Suk and his fans.
Some people say, these idols/actors are only showing you the image presented by their company. They are not real, and you are silly for believing them to be so. That may be true for everyone else; but I refuse to believe that it is true for our Jongsuk.
He never says, “I want to marry my fans.” He never says, “You are my ideal type.” He never says that. He only says thank you for supporting me. Thank you, thank you, thank you… were the words he kept whispering between sobs. He only asks, “Why do you even like me?” He makes no grand promises but shows his gratitude. When he got my gift, he placed his hand on his heart and smiled like a child. A signal that could be read by everyone, across all languages.
"I will keep my promise to you. I’ll grow up well. I won’t get into trouble."
Like the words spoken by a filial son to his parents. Such simple words, but the simplest promises are often the hardest to keep. He says it is our support that led him out to do ‘Pinocchio’; so let our support never wane.
We promise to believe, he promises to be a person we can believe in.
믿음. What a beautiful thing.
Milkcow Fansign - Report by hitoritabi (140830)
Tumblr took forever to load so I had to wait until I was home to start writing this. I was out with my parents and friends tonight, and they all mentioned how I looked like I had lost my mind. Most of this is in my Chinese fanaccount since that is the one I typed right after seeing him.
There were a lot of bodyguards today, who kept a close eye on us, so there are no photos or videos from me, I’m sorry. There were a girl who was thrown out in tears so I was extra careful.
I got to Milkcow at about 11am, which is quite late since the shop opens at 11. The line queuing up to buy thing was so long it had to be split into two (then it became three lines), I think there were about 200-300 in line in all? Some fans were from Japan and China but most were his Korean fans.
After lining up in the scorching heat for about half an hour (we were waiting on the side of the road), it was nearly my turn. I observed how the other fans were making their purchases and I seriously underestimated the enthusiasm!
Since you get one raffle ticket for 12000won, some fans were sweeping boxes of macarons from the racks, buying them by the dozens to get 10 tickets (the upper limit is 10). There’s not much else to buy at an ice-cream shop that wouldn’t melt, you see. I didn’t have he guts to do so, so just bought 8 macarons and an ice-cream. (The macarons nearly all ended up smashed in my bag though… I don’t like eating sweet things. =____=|||)
After I filled in the ticket (with my email address since I had no phone number), I felt my two tickets were probably futile against two whole boxes of them, so I went to Sinsa to find that coffee shop that Jongsuk said he always went to when he lived in Garosugil. Before I could locate it, I got the email said that I was in!
Running back like a crazy woman, I got my number at the entrance then waited upstairs on the 3rd floor. The fansign will take place on the second floor. and we all waited above; I used the two hours there to make a small booklet for him. My number was 100, the staff members said that I was lucky when I got it, but I didn’t know until later that it was actually the LAST NUMBER — which is why I got to talk to him for longer!
The fans went in in four groups - 1 to 25, 26-50, 51-75, 76-100. Since I was the last one of the last group, I got to watch him sign for about 20 minutes or so. He is unspeakably adorable — if you are older than him, he would cutely call you noona, if you were younger, he would say, “Oh come, let oppa give you a hug.” WTF LEE JONG SUK STOP.
There was a Chinese fan who asked him to write her name in Chinese, so he copied it stroke by stroke like a primary school student. Afterwards, he looked up to the fan and asked if it was right; but the fan didn’t know any Korea so just waved her hand ‘no’ — which he took to mean that the word was written incorrectly so he went back to check it again. GOD HE IS SO CUTE.
So when it was my turn, he looked at my name and asked where I was from. I said, Australia and we’ve seen each other in Taiwan fan meeting and Hong Kong fansign (I especially wore the same dress I did in Taiwan fansign to jog his memory). He stared at me for a few seconds and said, “Ah, noona! How come you are here again!”
1) He remembered that I was a noona.
2) He stared at me.
I replied, “I came to see you.”
He smiled and started signing, “I thought you were a Korean fan, your Korean in not bad.”
I said, “I learned it for you, your English is not great, right?”
He had a shocked face and said, “Eiii, no!”
So I replied, “Can you write the comment for me in English then?”
He paused for half a moment, then said, “Next time, next time..” While he said that, he wrote in Korean, “Thank you, let’s meet next time…” (I really love that he used ‘uri’ in that sentence.) He then added in English, “Next time.”
I burst into a laugh… the way he said it was so funny! The staff also smiled so he asked if he got it wrong, I said, no, you got it right. He stuck out his tongue a bit. ;_____;
He shook the piece of paper to dry the ink and gave it to me with both hands. He then stood up to give me a hug. (I checked, he is not using Burberry perfume today.)
I said, “I’m the last one, you must be tired today.”
He shook his head and said, “You guys have waited so long too.”
I prepared this line to say to him (I also wrote it in the booklet), so I said, “Don’t stay at home all the time, go and hang out with friends!” He took my hand again and said thank you.
I said, “Sorry my hand is cold…” (I was frozen with nervousness. His hands were large and soft and warm and UGH)
So that was the end.
He then left the building and a whole tsunami of fans were following him but I couldn’t focus. Amidst the sea of screaming and people saying he is ridiculously handsome, my hand still couldn’t stop shaking. I walked absent-mindedly into a stationery store and palced my signature in it… then I was able to reflect that it was not a dream!
I really came to Korea and go to meet him and talk to him, and he remembered who I was and the gift I gave him last time! How! But he is just so impossible to unstan.
As you said in your signature, “Let us meet again next time.”
And I’ll ask for that English comment. :P
P.S. While we were waiting, he had to take a 10 minute break because his back hurt from sitting and standing to give hugs. He passed by our floor to go up to the roof of the building, which shocked all of us since we were just lounging about waiting. He slowed down to greet us and said, “Let’s see each other later~”
foreverkpopblogging asked: What does 5959 mean??
Its a Aigu (아이구) but Jongsuk pronounce as oh-gu like 오구오구.. Ahd he kinda say this word often (as you watch some behind the scene or fan cam when he saw something~)
오 is 5
구 is 9
Thats why 5959
