I wanted to wait a few days before writting my fanaccount, I wanted all the emotions to cool down so that I’d be able to reflect more on it.
So, now that a few days have passed already… Here it is.
This has been the most incredible and unreal 2 days of my life. I arrived in Barcelona on Thursday, and the first thought when landing has been “so, I am in the same city as JYJ right now”. This thought came as soon as the wheels of the plane hit the ground, and it suddenly made me very nervous. Because on the day after that I had to attend the press conference at El Poble. I’m a fan but I got my press pass as a professional media. I would need to look professional, and I wasn’t sure I would manage to, because I had never seen them in real.
So I arrived at the venue early but I was surprized to see that there was already people who had set up tents and had spend a night there already. If you consider the fact that there had been like a storm in the night, and that they still had more than 35 hours to wait for the concert to begin, I was really admirative. Haha even I am not such a dedicated fans.
Though I was in front of the venue… I was scared to enter. I suddenly got really nervous… But what else could be done? So I went to see the staff members, told them about being invited to the press conference (the staff to give the accreditations wasn’t here yet so I have to wait) and met other people from my country who also had accreditations and also weren’t sure about what to do, so it helped me feel a bit less nervous.
Though some things happened after that, I’ll directly jump to when the press conference started. I’m not going to talk about the content or anything, since I was there as a media and I have to show some professionalism, even if it’s only this much. Seeing the boys in real, from so up close… It really seemed unreal. Because they were just like 3 or 4 meters in front of me, just sitting at a table… It didn’t feel like have superstars in front of me. It was like having these people who come to tell you about their job at uni. Excepted that they were handsome. I think they didn’t even wear any make-up, or if they did it was REALLY light. But even though they have really handsome faces.
I got shocked at how similar they look from all the pictures and videos, yet still seemed so… different.
I am Jaejoong-biased. And Jaejoong really looks like an angel, he has this features that make you feel quiet and relaxed. Yoochun is totally handsome and also has a hot stare. His eyes when they look in your direction… It’s really no joke. As for Junsu… he his handsomer than what I thought. I’ve always considered him as the cute baby of the group, but he also looks really smexy… But that’s a different feeling from Yoochun. If I were to explain it, I’d say… It seems that Yoochun knows how handsome and smexy he is, and he plays a bit with it but Junsu still looks so innocent and genuine… Haha, anyway, that was the first impression I’ve had of them.
The press conference went well, really, it went smoothly. The boys seem to have a curious nature, they really looked a lot at the journalists, maybe trying to asses our reactions and such.
In the end I went out thinking “They are not like unreachable gods… But really like the best human beings on earth”.
At this point I have to say that it’s a fortunate thing that I’ve met such nice people there… If you guys recognize yourself, hi, I was happy to meet you^^
At the fans that were queuing already, I have to tell you sorry… We kind of left the venue with our press pass very noticeable on purpose, having seen the boys already, and knowing that there would be the other press conf the day after that… We were really excited and hyper and we thought it would be fun to see the fans reaction at seeing people with passes… Haha sorry for being total meanies.
