I can still remember the morning when I woke up, looked at twitter on my phone and saw a few @-mentions from friends with the news that Jaejoong was going to release a solo-album! “really? A solo album? REALLY??!!”. I did some quick research on fansites to find out that it was true! JAEJOONG WAS RELEASING A SOLO ALBUM, A SOLO ROCK ALBUM!!! GODDDD, a few months before I tweeted Jaejoong begging him to release a solo rock album along with an URL of his MAZE performance, I said that if he would ever release one that I’d buy 10,000 copies, LMAO.
Along with the release of the album came the news that Jaejoong would hold a fanmeeting + mini concert in Seoul. Wooaaaahhhhhh, I’ve always told myself that if Jaejoong would ever have a solo concert that I would be there, no matter what. After talking about it at work and getting free days I could start looking how to get tickets. Luckily I have amazing friends in the fandom that were willing to help me! My precious Japanese nuna [BEE-nuna, who I met at the JYJ Berlin concert] managed to get me a ticket for the Saturday concert, and for the Sunday concert I asked an eBay seller, he got me a VIP seat!!!
So after I was sure of my concert tickets I could book my flight tickets and a hostel. It was quite hard to find a good hostel :/ Maybe because it was on such short notice, everything seemed to be fully booked. But after hours of searching I managed to find a hostel that had a free room for the time I stayed in Seoul. Now the only thing left was waiting.. And preparing of course. I printed a ton of maps of how to go to; Coffee Cojjee, BUM’s Story, Crebeau Jeff, Nuna Photo Studio, concert venue, hostel. I’ve been to Seoul before but it’s still quite stressy to go so far all alone.. kkk
[Flashforward to January 23rd] The trip to Seoul was pretty tiring, Brussels -> London -> Seoul. I woke up at 5AM to catch my flight at 10AM in Brussels, then had to wait 3 hours in London for my transfer-flight to Seoul which was over 12 hours. The total time spent at airports/in planes was about 18 hours. I can’t really sleep on planes because I’m so tall and can never get comfortable, I cursed a few times and told myself I’m pretty crazy to fly over for a concert, DAMN YOU JAEJOONG♥♥♥♥. So I was quite tired arriving in Seoul, but luckily I was welcomed by JYJ at the Tony Moly store in the airport.
