This event was held at the C.C. Lemon Hall in Shibuya for the release of Rokkugo in Japan. Tickets were around $55, but that included the CD+DVD version of the release, which I was going to buy, anyway. Suchhhhhhhh a good value.
The hall~ It was the size of a small theatre. We were in the 17th row, which was actually pretty close. All the seats were good seats.
Rokkugo: Ahhhhhhhh, I gotta get over this first couple songs not being able concentrate, thing XDDDDDD. NOT GOOD. I remember thinking this was a good performance, though.
First Express: Same. All I know is that it was this song where they changed from the ridiculous sequined Rokkugo coats into gorgeous black and white outfits. Heechul and Eunhyuk opted for all-black. Cute.
Otakara Photo: Sungmin: LINK Soooo cute! A picture from when he graduated Junior High. His reaction was adorable. Sungmin has a looooot of fans in Japan!
Kangin & Leeteuk - Hanaesoran Fan serviceeeeeee. It was so mushy-sounding! I thought Kangin sang pretty well :D. They hugged at the end. The fangirl screams...
Otakara Photo: Kangin Kind of->LINK Just a regular cute picture of Kangin from his College year
Sungmin - Good-by days This was really cute. Sungmin took the stage with a guitar for his solo. The lights went off, and there was just a spotlight on Sungmin, who was sitting on some steps. He started singing in Japanese, but a couple lines in he 'forgot' the words and messed up. Leeteuk massaged his shoulders to loosen him up, while Kangin and Eunhyuk came onstage to cover for him by telling the audience to forget everything that just happened and pretend it was starting from the beginning XD. So he started over, and sang a bit further into the song before he 'messed up' again XD. This time, Leeteuk sat next to Sungmin and talked with him gently (how cute!), and decided that it'd be easier for Sungmin if everyone joined him onstage as he sang. So then the song began again, and Sungmin was able to sing it to the end, with Kangin, Heechul, and Eunhyuk in the background dancing like dorks, and Leeteuk and Shindong on either side of him. ♥
Gift for You: A random seat number was chosen, and the winning girl went up onstage. Kangin helped her up the stairs, and was like hugging her from behind while they introduced her XD. Then the Moeyan girl asked her who her favorite member of Super Junior was, and she was like, "...Leeteuk." Kangin stopped touching her like she had the plague in that instant, and Leeteuk came over to embrace her and hold hands with her, giddily, hahahaha. Then she got a cute pink SJ shirt as a gift, and went on to hug Leeteuk and Sungmin, get her hand kissed by Heechul, shake hands with Eunhyuk and Shindong, and be given the cold shoulder by Kangin. He gave in and hugged her, in the end. Really cute. What a lucky girl!
Otakara Photo: Eunhyuk Just a regular picture of Eunhyuk shortly before debut, trying to look cool near some Christmas lights XD.
Shindong - Dance Shindong started out slow-dancing robot-style, then ended up doing a kind of cheer-leading routine to that "And I say heyheyheyhe~y, what's going on?" song. It was quite fast and he was quite good.
Otakara Photo: Leeteuk I was prepared for some awesome pre-plastic surgery embarrassment, but the photo was from only a year before debut :(. It was a cute picture, duh.
Heechul & Leeteuk - Winter Sonata: Leeteuk started on an electric piano in the middle of the stage. I actually didn't know he could play! Amazing. Then Heechul came out dressed as Bae Yong Jun from Winter Sonata, with the brown coat, glasses, and scarf. His hair is brown, now, too. How adorable ♥. He sang a pretty song- not sure if it's from the show, or not.
Otakara Photo: Shindong LINK I think Kangin said something about how the Shindong in that photo and the thinning Shindong of now are the same. And it's true! Shindong looks SO much smaller.
Eunhyuk & Moe - Dance: One of the girls from Moeyan danced with Euhyuk. A sort of dance-off where one dances, then the other. She danced to The Pussy Cat Dolls and he danced to some other R&B song. She was doing the cheer leading thing with high kicks and flexibility, and Eunhyuk was all hip-hop, it was great ♥ He even did a one-handed hand stand at one point.
Otakara Photo: Heechul LINK Nothing we haven't seen before. Everyone knows that Heechul was the cutest kid who ever existed.
Yan - Cutie Honey This was cute. Yan was wearing a flapper outfit and had scantily-clad backup dancers who Kangin followed off stage XDDD.
Don't Go Away Was surprised by Heechul's singing, here~ Their little formations were cute. Heechul seems to always dance behind the person in the middle-front, huh?
Moeyan A random girly-song with tons of backup dancers that a lot of the people in the audience randomly knew the words to XD. The other half of us just patiently awaited SuJu-T's return.
Sungmin Another song in Japanese with a realllly long video intro about being in an impersonal world, but being able to get through it with love... or something. Moeyan did backup vocals. Really very pretty song. Sungmin looked like he sang it with a lot of heart.
Rokkugo: Encore Funnnnnn. Heechul and Kangin were being dorks in the corner at one point, talking about something, then they rejoined the others in the dance. Kangin was really 'on' for the whole show, haha. He seemed really excited to be in Japan.
The sticker set~ Really cute, but the event organizers need to learn how to make money... XD The only new items they had were a towel, a fan, and these stickers. Couldn't they have at least printed a poster?
They got a surprising amount of flowers! At the opening day of the NewS concert in Sendai, they had two bouquets XD.
My journal has become some kind of con report journal... D: I would post personal stuff, but I've been so ridiculously lethargic outside of fandom, lately. Oh well, I've got a break from events until December 1st (KINKI KIDSSSSSSSSSSSSS OMG!!!!!!!). I'll post a life update soon~ This is more fun, though.
