By: LazerKim Kim Hyun Joong arrived Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport yesterday at about 12:15pm and making sure he passed by the immigration and custom area!! From the airline tube, down to the tarmac rode the air bus onto the immigration, custom and to the VIP exit to his car and finally to his hotel. It’s so unfortunate though that many fans were waiting for him at the airport lobby to welcome him but for security precautions, he was escorted at the VIP exit. Hyun Joong was in all smiles from Chengdu to Guangzhou.
Boarding Hyun Joong’s flight, it was said that majority of the passengers with him were his fans coming from Chengdu to follow him at Guangzhou. I would assume that fans may have asked the flight attendants about Hyun Joong, and they said he smiles at everyone being so nice and that he’s cute!! It was said that even the flight attendants rush out to follow Hyun Joong!! I would assume then he won another fans from his flight!! They said they have encountered many stars boarding their flight but it was only Hyun Joong among the Korean stars who’s being followed by huge fans anywhere he goes to perform abroad.
In my other articles I have mentioned the age ranges of Hyun Joong’s fans. If I would compare his fans from other artist’s fans, I would say Hyun Joong have a huge matured fans who are capable of traveling and can easily follow him wherever he performs. I would say Hyun Joong has that edge in terms of loyal fan followers, and I mean followers in the right sense and not stalking!! Of course these are two different situations!!
After Hyun Joong checked in to his hotel which I think is Marriot Hotel, took a brief rest, freshen up and proceeded to his stage technical rehearsals at the Guangzhou Tianhe Stadium. At about 3pm it was rather raining, many stalls outside the stadium were already set up selling the uzoosin merchandise. Many fans had already been spotted in the area which I think are international fans buying uzoosin items. The atmosphere was like a festival or a fun carnival and as time starts to click the area was getting crowded by fans.
This stadium is a bit much bigger that the one at Chengdu but both stadiums are much bigger than the other countries Hyun Joong had been. The stadium was filled up with fans and as expected fans chanted Hyun Joong’s name before the show starts. A sea of green was shown again, meaning the venue was filled up by his eager fans to share a great memory with Kim Hyun Joong as he sings and dance.
The concert is the same and so with the fan game. There was no panda cap this time but the fans sang a birthday song to Hyun Joong in Korean. Hyun Joong mentioned that he hadn’t come to Guangzhou after he participated at the Asian Games Opening Ceremony as he sang together with other Chinese celebrities .
At the game portion, same as in Chengdu Hyun Joong baked a steam cake for the fans who are celebrating their birthday same as him. If in Chengdu he gave his earings this time he gave his ring to one of the fans. He decorated the third cake in a uzoosin and put his ring as a crown. The fan audience of course screamed with envy!! Hyun Joong is just so creative in putting up entertainment like this and he never run out of unique ideas that can be pleasing to his audience.
Hyun Joong did it again this show was another huge success and it was spectacular. His fans have the same passion as those from Chengdu. Everything turned smoothly that the fans truly enjoyed the moment with Hyun Joong.
Right after the show, his fans rushed to Marriot Hotel where Hyun Joong is staying to participate at the High Five session. It was held at the grand ballroom of the hotel for lucky 1,000 fans, from the ticket draw conducted before the show. Unfortunately, the crowd of fans flocked at the hotel created chaos. Since the fans rushed in all at the same time, that I think the hotel staffs were not aware it would be that messy.
It was totally disorganized, the venue was so crowded and everyone just felt frustrated and uncomfortable by the disorderness. It took time before the hotel staffs were able to organize the situation. Nevertheless Hyun Joong was able to accomplish his task to do a high-five with his fans, but this time everyone the 1,000 fans did the high-five and no hand shake.
Among all other countries I was thinking China is the most prepared, but why do these problems arises when three other countries where Hyun Joong had gone recently, did not experienced any problems? Wake up China organizers, other international fans looked up on you. There shall be two other up coming events after this, the organizers should know their responsibilities. Come on put your acts together and plan on how you can organize these up-coming events. I’m sure this isn’t your first time to organize such events.
A lot of fans had already complained from the start, from the ticket pricing, which lacks transparency to the high-five session in Chengdu, and this high five session in Guangzhou. Not to mention the worse of all, Hyun Joong’s arrival to your country that almost placed him in the most legally damaging to his status, just because of careless incompetent organizer’s staff. The entire international fans are watching over Hyun Joong and one single mistake on your part can also be damaging.
After Chengdu, I decided to forget whatever negative was there or problems encountered, but after reading last night’s incident and after seeing the scenario at the hotel where high-five was held seeing how disorganized and chaotic it was, my apologies but I have to react. Despite of what happened I’m sure Hyun Joong would still push through with the high-five as planned for his next fan meeting concerts, but the organizers has to do something about it. May I just suggest to observe Singapore, Hongkong, and Taiwan how well-organized the entire event was. This is just my observation and my opinion.
Late last night as I was still monitoring the high-five session, somebody just posted that a fan allegedly kissed Hyun Joong during the high-five session! That took him by surprised and so with Mr. Jeong who was standing beside Hyun Joong! It was said that somehow created anger among the fans who were there at the venue. Well, quite understandable who wouldn’t be angry? But I still have to dig deeper though about the allege incident, if indeed this is true and if not, what could be the purpose of that post from weibo?
Despite of the problems encountered by the fans in Chengdu and Guanzhou, still the most important for us fans is that Hyun Joong made another successful performance. Hyun Joong again left a memory to his fans from Chengdu and Guanzhou that will always be remembered. Still with hopes that when he gets back to China, fans would not encounter anymore problems.
For the fans of Chengdu and Guanzhou thank you very much for taking care of Hyun Joong, thank you for your gesture of hospitality to the international fans. And for the fans who shared the updates, thank you very much for your endless effort in sharing with the other fans. Please do keep it up, and your great effort is well appreciated by all of us. You know who you are!! Thank you very much!
