WELL HERE GOES! BE WARNED, this post is super long and it contains a lot of feels lol.
When I knew I was going to Seoul, I knew I wanted to visit EunHyuk’s mom’s Tous Les Jours. I’ve been a fan for so long and it just seemed like something I should do.
SO, I get to Seoul and my friend ANNE judged me hardcore when I said I wanted to go there (HAHA LOVE YOU ANNEY). And it was far from where she lived. I didn’t really like NEED to see him there and I didn’t even know if he was in Seoul at the time, but since we’re making the effort to go there, we might as well try to see him. He usually tweets on the TLJ account if he’s planning to go there or if he’s already there. Usually when I see photos though, I think he’s there close to closing time, so we decided to go there late.
Since it was far, we stopped by at Times Square for dinner and to chill since it was sorta on the way. Coincidentally enough, SHINee was holding a fan sign event there. There were already a lot of people when we got there and I didn’t feel like waiting, so we didn’t wait (and when we went back later, they were already gone). So then we went for dinner.
After that, we sat somewhere and I wrote a fan letter to EunHyuk (lol). Well, since I was gonna travel all the way there, I might as well leave him a letter and a present. It was so awkward though because I have never written a fan letter before and I had no idea what to write. I ended up just saying like I’m from New York and want him to come back and he’s my favourite and all that good stuff. I also wrote really cheesy stuff, coz I figured I might as well go all the way! I wrote half of it in Korean and half in English. Anne also suggested I put in a Polaroid of myself but I was gonna take it in front of the TLJ. I also bought him Pepero because the box had space at the back to write a note! It was cute!
OK so we made our way there around 10pm or a little before 10pm. We took the subway. When we got out of the subway, Anne’s phone ran out of battery and we had no idea how to get there. So we had to stall for a bit til I had wi-fi on my phone. We still had to take a bus to the TLJ. We waited for about 6 minutes for it and it was 3 stops away. So we get there and every other store around it was closed. We were so scared that it might be closed, too, but there it was, with its lights still on, at the corner. I think it was almost 10:30 when we arrived.
We go in and all the bread was gone (haha)!! Anne got really excited though, because they had bingsu! So, we ordered one and sat down. There were two people beside us (they weren’t fans, just regular people), a Japanese family and a Japanese girl (I think she was alone). I kinda felt bad for the Japanese family because the father and the brother looked super bored. I think they’ve been waiting there for a while. The mother and daughter were talking to the other girl there. I think the mother was more of a fan and the daughter was really young (like early middle school young).
Shortly after we sat down, someone came and spoke to the Japanese fans. I recognized her as EunHyuk’s mom, so I told that to Anne and Anne was like “I think he’s here…” AND I WAS LIKE WHAT? (from where the seating area was, you couldn’t really see the front of the bakery or the cashier) AND I TURNED AROUND AND SAW HIS REFLECTION IN THE GLASS AND THEN I TURNED TO THE CASH REGISTER AND THERE HE WAS JUST STANDING THERE AND I WAS FREAKING OUT SO MUCH, I COULDN’T EVEN THINK OR SPEAK! I MEAN, HE’S LIKE MY ULTIMATE, ULTIMATE KPOP BIAS! AND HE WAS JUST STANDING THERE, WITH NO SECURITY, NO CRAZY FANS SURROUNDING HIM (except for the 4 of us), HOLDING A DRNK IN HIS HAND, DRESSED NORMALLY AND HAD PINK HAIR!
I SHOOK HIS HAND AND OMG HIS HAND WAS SO SOFT I DIDN’T WANNA LET GO AT ALL. HE THOUGHT I WAS JAPANESE BECAUSE HE SAID “KONNICHIWA.” WELL THE OTHER FANS WERE JAPANESE SO HE PROBABLY THOUGHT WE WERE ALL TOGETHER. AND THEN I HANDED HIM THE LETTER AND THE PEPERO (THAT I DIDN’T EVEN GET TO WRITE ON COZ I DIDN’T HAVE TIME) AND HE SAID “ARIGATOU” (ERMAHGERD SO CUTE) AND ALL THIS TIME I COULDN’T EVEN SPEAK IN KOREAN, JAPANESE OR ENGLISH. EVERYTHING WAS JUST JUMBLED UP IN MY HEAD. HE DIDN’T STAY FOR LONG. BUT I GOT TO TAKE PICTURES WITH HIM. HE’S ACTUALLY NOT THAT SHORT LOL I ALWAYS THOUGHT HE WAS LIKE MY HEIGHT, BUT HE’S SLIGHTLY TALLER. AND HE LEFT AFTER TAKING PICTURES WITH US AND WE JUST STOOD BY THE ENTRANCE WHILE HE WALKED INTO HIS CAR AND DROVE OFF. MY HANDS WERE SHAKING SO MUCH I COULDN’T EVEN TAKE A PICTURE. THEN WE WAVED AT HIM WHILE HE DROVE OFF.
I was still shaking so much and my heart was beating so fast. Anne then told his mom that I’m from New York and his mom said that I’m so lucky. And she said that he wasn’t even gonna stop by today. He took her to the eye doctor and was gonna take her home, but she said she had to work, so he brought her to the bakery. Then I took a picture with his mom. Then Anne and I sat down and I completely forgot we ordered bingsu.
Also, the two people next to us like hurried and left after he came lol. BUT OMG THEN I WAS STILL FREAKING OUT SO MUCH I COULDN’T EVEN ENJOY THE BINGSU. THE CRAZY THING IS WE HAD JUST SAT DOWN AND HE CAME, LIKE THE TIMING WAS JUST SO PERFECT! AND THE FACT THAT HE WASN’T EVEN GONNA COME IN IN THE FIRST PLACE. GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I CAN’T.
SO I needed time to recover, so we sat there til before they closed (at 11). I finally got time to take pictures of the place.
I wrote him a note (with my picture behind it) saying that it was nice meeting him that day. And finally, we left.
OK, so this sounds really dramatic, but that moment was probably the best moment in my life. It beats everything that I’ve experienced up til now (well, almost, but that’s how I felt at that moment). It beats like all the celebrities I’ve met til now. I mean, I’ve seen him before at SM Town (long story short, he was coming down the aisle where I was sitting and I touched him…well, his shoulder, and I saw him up close). And that same night, I saw him leaving the restaurant where everyone in SM Town was having dinner and walking into the car. But this moment was just so much more than that. Just coz this moment was so not crazy. Like he was just a guy dropping his mom off, you know? He wasn’t even in celebrity mode at that time. And I didn’t have to fight with so many fans to get close to him. The 4 of us there were civil lol. IT WAS JUST THE BEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE AND NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBE HOW I FELT AT THAT MOMENT. LIKE I CAN DIE HAPPY NOW.
Though, the funny thing was, on our way back, I was suddenly thought about the fan letter I gave him. I all of a sudden felt so embarrassed. Like, what if he actually reads it? I mean, I didn’t think I was going to meet him. I was just gonna leave the letter there and there was a small chance he might read it. BUT I HAND DELIVERED THE LETTER AND HE HELD IT IN HIS HAND AS HE LEFT. THE CHANCES OF HIM READING IT JUST WENT UP! Like, what if he’s stuck in traffic and was just like, hey, lemme read this letter. xDDDDDDDDD
AND up until now I keep replaying that moment where I turned and saw him in the flesh! I STILL CAN’T BELIEVE THAT I ACTUALLY MET HIM!
I MET EUNHYUK
THE LOVE OF MY LIFE
OK, I’ll stop now.
