it is no secret how much I love Super Junior and how Choi Siwon is one of my most favourite member.
Needless to say, when it was announced that Siwon was coming to town with the Director Dante Lam to promote “To The Fore”, I had to go see him one last time before he enlists in his mandatory national service.
Dante Lam and Siwon were due to appear at the skating rink in Marina Bay Sands at 7 pm and at Plaza Singapura at 8 pm. Initially, a group of us decided to go down to Plaza Singapura but stalkerazzi instincts insisted that I head down to Marina Bay Sands at lunch time to recce the stage.
Good thing I headed down, the view at Marina Bay Sands was definitely better because of how there are multiple levels while Plaza Singapura was on a flat ground and a low stage. As a result, we changed our plan and headed down to Marina Bay Sands instead.
Dante Lam and Siwon showed up around 7.25 pm and played a game with 2 lucky fans who were picked before their arrival. In the game, the fans were blindfolded and Dante & Siwon had to feed them various food and the fan had to guess what the food was.
Siwon was being too nice as usual and he kept trying to drop hints to the fan as to what he was going to feed her but he kept saying, “oh I like to eat this” for everything; which totally wasn’t helpful at all. LOL. In the end, he admitted that he likes to eat everything.
The highlight of the 15 minutes appearance has got to be how Siwon spilled some bubble tea down the fangirl’s shirt. LOL. The liquid landed on her tummy area and Siwon was like, “I would help you to clean but… it is not convenient. The area is sensitive.” as he handed her a piece of tissue. LMAO!!! While he was genuinely apologetic about dirtying her shirt, he was definitely pretending to be shy as she cleaned her shirt. (You are such a terrible liar Siwon.)
Still, I was very impressed by how much Siwon’s English and Mandarin has improved. He didn’t really rely on the translator at all throughout the meet the fans session at Marina Bay Sands!
Interestingly, only Dante Lam and Siwon came for the promotion of “To The Fore” while other stops of the promotional tour had most if not the full cast present.
With regards to this interesting scenario, I would like you guys to please indulge in my delusion that Siwon really wants to come to Singapore on this promotional tour so that I can see him one last time before he enlists around September/October 2015 as his way of saying goodbye for the next 2 years to me.
LOL. Shameless, I know… but whatever.
Anyway, here are some of the photos that turned out barely decent from the short meet the fans session at Marina Bay Sands Skating Rink yesterday evening. It was difficult to take good photos because the screen backdrop was messing up the lighting in the photos.
Finally, Siwon, where is this photo that you took? 시원아, 그 찍었는 사진이 어디냐? 올려야지!
“破风 (To The Fore)”, directed by Dante Lam 林超贤, starring Eddie Pang 彭于晏, Choi Siwon 崔始源/최시원 and Shawn Dou 窦骁, opens in cinemas islandwide on 6 August 2015.
