Day 8 – Mnet Countdown
It was Shinhwa’s 1st comeback stage for the album, The Return. I made arrangement with a Singapore SHCJ the night before to attend this memorable stage at Mnet Countdown. We did some homework beforehand, and there were 3 things needed for the show: the latest album, digital download proof and the ringtone.
I woke up very early to meet my SHCJ friend at Digital Media City station. We then took taxis to the location. I won’t be able to make it without her, since I can’t speak Korean at all, and she speaks fluent Korean. ^__^
Upon arriving, we gave our names to a rep, a K-SHCJ there. We were going for the pre-recording seesion of Shinhwa only, and not the live show. Priorities will be given to those with the 3 items, Shinhwa’s The Return album, digital & ringtone download. While we only have the album and digital download, we were at a disadvantage position. ><
The allocated number of fans allowed to go in for the pre-recording was 220. And, we were lucky enough to get 219 & 220! SO LUCKY~!
I did not take any photos in the pre-recording show because I might get kick out. I was mesmerized by those men. Eric’s gaze was extremely captivating! I can’t look elsewhere much. Hyesung was somewhere singing, not dancing on the stage because he hurt himself during the concert. We got to watch their ‘Hurts’ & ‘Venus’ performance.
‘Venus’ is a very special song to me. I love it very much till this day. It holds a lot of emotions – their return after 4 years hiatus, my 1st time attending their concert, my 1st time attending their comeback stage, and lots more that were beyond words.
