we have to wonder . . .
Who did HE see?
We saw someone AMAZING!
The Stars were aligned on our behalf . . .
It was Mother's Day. There were five of us. (One fan to support each SHINee member). And, three of us were moms.
We were all together in the same city, close to Chicago. Had the money. Had the time. And, never thought in a million years we would ever have this opportunity. What U.S. KPOP fan EVER dreams of actually seeing their bias group LIVE, IN PERSON, hearing them sing, talk, (Dear God) breathing the same air!
Our seats were crappy, way off to the right, and it was hard to see. We panicked. Then, lo and behold the lights went down, the music went up, and one of our group managed to find us '5' seats directly in the middle of the auditorium, all together, where we could see perfectly!
It was a 'ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME' experience for all of us.
'One Fine Day'.
Always impeccably dressed, we often wondered if he was having a fling with his stylist. (Someone was taking good care of him.)
In his humbleness, he never realized how great he truly was . . .
What were the odds, one of us would have yet ANOTHER opportunity to see SHINee live?
This time it happened to be the half of our writing team (my sister) who lives in the Dallas area. With the help of a host of friends, she was able to acquire even better seats, closer to the middle, and even though the content was the same as in Chicago . . . her reaction was just as exciting.
Can you believe that in the Chicago fanmeet, a fan couldn't guess that his nick-name was Dinasour!!! Hahaha.
Was just a blessing from above. There is no other way to put it. Another opportunity that fell from the sky.
WHO GETS TO SEE SHINee THREE TIMES in only two years, and doesn't live in S.Korea or Japan?
Looking back, we feel like somehow we were being prepared for what was to come.
This time . . . we were (count them) 9 ROWS FROM THE FRONT!!!
OFFICIALLY . . . Living and Breathing SHINee AIR.
So, we share our own perspective of the day and what brought us so much joy, and love, knowing we belonged to a fandom that supports each other, not only in the good times but the bad, as well as the sad.
We will miss you Kim Jonghyun, and cherish the impact you left on those coming after you.
YOU DID WELL!
