I have been
obsessed developing an interest in Hyunwoong 14U of late so when I stumbled upon their new album project on the MakeStar site, I made a pledge for the most expensive option which included a fan meet pass without hesitation. It costs a bomb but it was a good deal because I get to support the boys for their comeback and I get to meet them as well. Win-win situation right?
The 14U MakeStar fan meet was held in a hotel ballroom in Seoul on 28 January 2018. A week before the fan meet, I fell ill and lost my voice. However, I wasn’t going to let that stop me from flying over to Seoul to meet
Hyungwoong 14U! I was prepared to use sign language and pre-written notes to communicate with them and all but fortunately, at least my voice came back in time for the fan meet.
I arrived at the venue about an hour late because I had forgotten to bring along the gifts that I had prepared for the boys when I left the accommodation and I turned back to take it. I had to right, I brought it all the way from Singapore to give to the 14U boys and I certainly don’t intend to carry it all the way back to Singapore.
The seats at the fan meet were allocated via a lottery. I had to pick a ticket at random and was then ushered to my seat. When I was shown my seat, wahey!! It was at the table that was right across Hyungwoong!!! #Destiny Hahahahaha!!!!
The fan meet started with a lunch with 14U but I barely touched my food. How can I even eat when Hyunwoong is just right in front of me?! #priorities
After lunch, the autograph session started. We were all given a card for the 14U boys to sign on. The line for the autograph session begins with Doyul, Loudi, Hero, GeHyeon, DoHyuk, B.S, E.Sol, Gyeongtae, Rio, WooJoo, EunJae, Sejin, Luha and Hyungwoong.
I don’t really remember what happened with Doyul in all the excitement. I only remembered how dreamy he looks when he smiles. Loudi is really sweet and he kept apologising for not being able to speak more in English as it was difficult to switch between 3 languages. I’m a polyglot myself so I can understand his plight. I assured him that he’s doing a really great job so far.
I passed Loudi a gift I had prepared from him but he looked apprehensive and said, “is this for Hyunwoong?”
Me: Err… it’s for you. *points to his name on the gift*
Loudi laughed and thanked me for the gift. He said a lot more to me but I kinda zoned out coz I was thinking that I was pretty sure that I never told Loudi that Hyunwoong is my bias…?
I didn’t really talk much to Hero, GoHyeon, B.S, E.sol and Gyeongtae as I only just hi-fived them and had to move along. GoHyeon looks so sexy though… 😍
Rio is fun! He was so excitable in his seat as he said hello to me in Korean.
Rio: [korean] Oh hello!! Let me introduce myself, my name is Rio!
Me: *shook his hand* Nice to meet you! I’m Emily.
Rio: *pointed to the tiara I was wearing* WOAH! You like a character from a game!
Rio’s reaction was a bit over the top as he kept saying how I looked like I jumped out of a game. He is so totally adorable and entertaining at the same time.
I just quickly passed WooJoo and EunJae coz I really wanted to get to Sejin quick. Haha. Sorry boys! #notsorry
Sejin: OH!! *smiles brightly* You’re here!!
Me: Because I miss you! *shy*
Sejin: Oh really?!
Sejin is very bit as fluffy as I remembered. Those cheeks of his that puff up when he smiles just makes me want to squeeze them. Urgh! I told him how cool he looked in the teaser for the “Don’t Be Pretty” mv and he was really humble about it.
I also don’t quite remember what happened with Luha because Hyunwoong was right beside him and… priorities right?
All that said about how much I anticipated to see Hyunwoong again but I was such a mess. Hyunwoong did most of the talking and I just took the time to appreciate his features in such close proximity. His dimple, his smile and all. All I remembered was that he kept giving me hi-5s as I stood there staring at him and blushing like crazy. Hahaha.
After the autograph session, there was also a games segment. There were a couple of games but I only remembered the game of charades clearly because I was laughing so hard that I almost dropped my phone. Hahaha. Rio is so extra. He kept doing extra little actions which throws the whole group off the actual clue that they 14U boys were supposed to guess.
Finally, the fan meet ended off with a photo taking session. I must admit that I was a little disappointed that Sejin was not standing next to me. It would have been photo perfect if I could stand between my favourite duo.
I must say that I really liked how the staff didn’t rush us during the whole fan meet and were had the time to interact with the 14U boys and get all the 14U members’ autograph. It was definitely worth the time, effort and money spent to attend the event.
Till the next time I see
Hyunwoong 14U again!
