The Korean Travel Organisation (KTO) invited Park Hyungsik (박형식) and Park Boyoung (박보영), the 2 lead actors in the recently concluded hit JTBC drama series, 힘쎈 여자 도봉순 (Strong Woman Do Bong Soon), to make a special appearance at the Korea Travel Fair at Plaza Singapura yesterday, 29 April 2017.
As expected, by the time I arrived at Plaza Singapura at about 11.30 am (SG), the place was full! Mind you, Hyungsik and Boyoung were only expected to make their appearance at around 2.00 pm (SG)! Anyway, it is what it is and so begins the waiting game.
When the event started promptly at 2.00 pm (SG), everyone got really excited and all but it was damn annoying how so many of the fans in front were standing on chairs. I’m not talking about those low step stools that some fans bring nowadays:
but legit chairs like these from the exhibition booths:
and some of them even brought stools like these:
Bloody hell was an understatement. Nobody on the ground floor beyond the cordoned off fan area could see anything. As a result, people at the back started moving about to find another spot to even get a glimpse of Hyungsik and Boyoung. At one point, there was a human crush at one of the escalators, as people started standing at the end of the escalator because that’s where they could get a clear view. Fortunately, the security folks shoo-ed everyone away quickly before anyone got injured.
Anyway, I couldn’t really heard what was being said from the back as the PA system was setup to only be loud enough for the exhibition area but it’s ok, I just needed to see the BongBong and MinMin couple. LOL.
Just look at the 2 of them!! They are so cute together and I’d totally approve for them to date and get married. 결혼하세요!! ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Hyungsik did look quite tired and super tanned from his recent beach holiday. He looks so mature now compared to the last time I saw him back in April 2013 with Ze:A 5 at Sukira. To be honest, I didn’t really care about him back then. Hahaha. But look at me now. ㅠㅠ
Park Boyoung is super tiny and super cute; pretty much similar to her character Do Bong Soon. In fact, when she first came on stage, everyone around me at the back was like, “I can’t see her!! She is too short!! I only saw her hair!!” LOL.
Seriously, thanks to the drama, there are so much feels when I see the 2 of them together. AAAHHHHHH!!!! Hahahahaha.
Anyway, I also won some posters signed by Hyungsik and Boyoung in a draw before the event!
At first, I thought that there would just be 1 poster but when I unrolled the thing, I was very surprised to see 2 posters within! And that extra poster of Hyungsik that is signed too! Needless to say, there were some bouts of screaming and fangirling involved as well. Hahaha.
Thank you KTO for doing this!! ^^
