I waited for them to appear out of nowhere, everywhere. Well, technically not everywhere since most of our shuttling around was in the subway/Seoul Metro. I don’t think famous people would attempt riding a train packed with people. I waited, even at the Incheon International Airport. Desperation was creeping in as I walked the halls of the number one airport in the world, but to no avail. As I took my seat in the plane on the way back to Manila, I left all hopes in Korea. No fangirling as a foreigner during this trip.
I had a back-up plan that I put into place even before the day came for me to face the reality that I failed. Pure brilliance I must say. No freaking out, no awkwardness, no fangirly craziness. How? I walked around the streets and found all of them there. In Myeongdong. A building next to our hotel. At the subway station near our exit. Smiling, waiting for me.
ANNYEONG HASEYO, JO IN SUNG! ♥
Then there’s So Ji Sub, who played the part of Ryan Kang in Memories of Bali.
To complete the cast is the super popular Korean actress, Ha Ji Won. She is everywhere!
And then, the KPop stars…
Girls’ Generation. It says here in this subway ad that they are the ambassadors of Gangnam. I did go to Gangnam but didn’t see their faces there.
To go to these standees (LOL), get off at Jamsil station and find the exit that leads to Lotte World. You won’t miss it. If you do, there’s a fountain beside these girls. Basically, it’s the central area where you can access either Lotte World or the Lotte Department Store.
This building in Myeongdong is for SM Entertainment talents’ fans.
You can find them outside, though.
The closest I can get to 2NE1, Sandara Park.
The stars on the subway:
See, told you, they are everywhere. I don’t even need to compete with other fans or be shoved out of the way. Fuss-free fangirling!
