Right after the Alice Nine recording at the Harajuku Abema Studios, I was hanging out with a friend when both my portable wifi and mobile phone died on me. I had a portable battery charger with me so I plugged all the dead devices in but to no avail. It just kept prompting that it wasn’t compatible and refused to charge anything.
I had to meet another friend for dinner later in the evening so I really needed my phone to be working. Otherwise I have absolutely no way of contacting the other friend. Tokyo is a huge place and transportation is expensive so travelling back and forth to the hotel between meet ups wasn’t in my plan. Unfortunately, it seems like I didn’t have a choice so I headed back to the hotel to try to get my phone charged up. If that didn’t work, at least I have the hotel phone as a back up plan.
As I approached the hotel, I spotted a familiar face from afar:
It’s funny how I am now spotting 14U on the streets of Tokyo right now because @jovenatheart was saying that I had to buy a kebab from this specific stall in Tokyo to be able to bump into 14U on the street. This time around, I am NOT buying any kebabs so if it’s not fate, then I don’t know what it is.
As we walked closer towards each other, I realised that it wasn’t just Hyunwoong there; it was half of 14U – Loudi, Rio, Luha, Hyunwoong, E.Sol and GyeongTae! 반갑다! My heart then just skipped a beat. Seriously, as fate would have it, the 14U boys were walking towards the direction of my hotel.
Rather than go straight into the hotel, I decided to walk with them for a bit to have a chat. Coz why not right?
E.Sol totally impressed with his English this time around. He has improved quite a bit! The last few times I got to speak to E.Sol at 14U events, he was already trying to converse with me in English but it never lasted for long. However, this time around, we actually managed to have a short conversation! I’m starting to like the leader E.Sol and just might move Hyunwoong down my bias list. ㅋㅋㅋ
When Rio saw me, he started to introduce himself to me in English. “Hello! My name is Rio. I am 14U, number ONE!” and the entire time he was trying not to start laughing while he was speaking in English. Rio is fun as always.
For you fans who were worried about Loudi not joining in one of the PR events recently, don’t worry. Loudi is fine and in the pink of health when I saw him that day.
You know how at the beginning of this post I was saying that my mobile phone had died and wouldn’t charge? Well, guess what? When I saw Hyunwoong from afar, my fangirl instincts was to grab my phone and try to take pictures. So I just tried my luck and switched on my phone at that moment and BOOM. IT WORKED JUST FINE. LOL. The drama right?!
But seriously, if my phone didn’t play tricks on me, I wouldn’t have been able to spot 14U on the streets of Tokyo again. So yeah, it’s fate right?
