Just needed to share this, and also so that I won't forget this!
So miss A's fan party (essentially a concert, their first solo concert!) took place in HK yesterday. 2 of my fandom clique friends, Crystal and Jessica went, so I asked them to help say hi for me to Fei!
mA girls departed today back to Korea, so C&J went to the airport to send them off. While walking behind Fei, C shouted my name, "HUIXIAN!!". Fei asked "Oh, 她没来吗？" (she didnt come?), and C&J replied "没来". ㅠㅠ I'm so happy that Fei asked the question with negation (or whatever you term that as lol), instead of simply "她有来吗" (did she come?). To me, there's a difference. The former question feels like she noticed my absence, whereas the latter feels like just a normal question without any assumption...
I can only hope that this means she remembers my face, and not only my name!
JYP held this event on Naver where fans had to pick members from their existing stable of artistes and then create a project group, give them a name and provide the reason why. They would pick 10 winners and the winners would be invited to a chatting session on Line app with miss A, Wonder Girls' Yeeun, 2PM's Wooyoung and Nichkhun, Baek AYeon and Choi Wooshik; which would also be broadcasted as well!
My entry was:
Heartstrings: Yeeun, Fei, Min, Sunmi; reason being that they can sing with their powerful and melodious voices to tug the heartstrings of the audiences. (something along these lines because I forgot the full one hehe).
Yesterday (17/1), I received 6 calls from a Korean number which I kept rejecting because I dont usually anwer calls from foreign numbers, since it might be a scam. Then, I suspected that maybe I won the event, so I went to check my Naver account, and lo and behold, the person trying to contact me also sent me Naver messages to tell me that I won! I was so excited and scared that the person wouldnt call back again, and I didnt dare to call back because what if the person was Korean?! What would I say?! Luckily, the person called me back and spoke to me in Mandarin/Chinese! :) Then, afterwards I went to download Line (I deleted the app a long time ago because I didnt use it anymore) and realised that the person had been trying to contact me since 10am! I only picked up her call at 3pm! I was so glad that she didnt give up despite trying to contact me for 5 hours! She told me that I was chosen as the only Chinese-speaking fan and she was my translator, which meant that Naver specially employed a translator for me?! XD I feel honoured, hahaha! When I asked her if I could speak in English, she said no because they already had appointed another English-speaking fan, so I was in-charge of speaking in Chinese. I was a little mad, because I felt like I couldnt express myself properly in Chinese...
Today, we were invited to the group chat at 6.15PM, and notified that the Line chatting segment would only start at 7.40PM. We were told that we had to follow an order when asking questions, starting from the Koreans (they listed out their names all in order), followed by the English-speaking fan, and I was the last. So it was then when I realised that out of 10 winners, 8 were Koreans. I'm glad that they gave international fans a chance, even by picking different languages, because for the previous similar event miss A had, they only chose winners that had Korean mobile phone numbers.
I shall skip to the part where the chatting with fans segment starts! It started with a frenzy, because everyone was so excited! I couldnt be bothered to speak in Chinese, so I went all "HELLO! WHAT'S UPPPP" hahahaha! But when it was time for the fans to ask questions, I didnt butt in nor interrupt! ^^ When it was my turn, Min & Wooyoung introduced me as a fan from Singapore, the artistes all said "Ni hao, Hui Xian". You can hear really clearly that Fei's tone was more of a recognition kind of tone, so I think she still remembers me, yay! :D Sadly the camera wasnt panned on her... I bet she was waving at the camera like in the webchat XD Yeeun asked Jia to translate what I was going to say, haha!
This was my wish and request for them:
"希望miss A除了香港还会在其他国家举办演唱会，JYP Nation除了韩国和日本也到其他国家举办演唱会！ miss A有没有分小队活动的计划？也非常希望missA能录制真人秀！还有希望能听到更多예은언니写的歌！
愿望是他们能说一句 “Hui Xian fighting!”
然后霏霏姐姐~ 扮可爱好吗 ^^"
In short (and in English), my wish was that miss A would have concerts overseas, JYP Nation will hold concerts in countries other than Korea & Japan, for miss A to have sub-unit activities and to record a reality TV program, and for Yeeun to release more songs! Then, my request was for all of them to say "Hui Xian, fighting!", and for Fei to do aegyo.
Jia & Fei translated my wish together :) (the translator was kinda useless...) I think Yeeun was a bit surprised to see her name in my majority-missA-related wish, so she looked like she was waiting for Jia to reach the part where I wrote Yeeun's name :P Sorry Yeeun, I wasnt able to type in English :(
Here's a cut of my segment during the event!
Also, I didnt mean for Fei to do aegyo directly after they cheered for me, but that was what Min interpreted as so she instructed Fei to do it. Fei dislikes doing aegyo (and I knew she couldnt refuse, so in a way my request was "forcing" her to do it HAHAHA she's really funny when she reluctantly does aegyo), so the moment she heard she had to do aegyo, she sighed, enlarged her eyes in a unbelieving kind of expression, and rolled her eyes. HAHAHAHA FEI ROLLED HER EYES AT ME!!! MY LIFE IS MADE! :D Fei rolled her eyes and did aegyo at me, hahahaha!
When my wish appeared on their phone screens, Min was all surprised by the influx of Chinese words, so this took place:
Hahaha, it's quite funny, isn't it?
I quickly took the chance to ask about the presents that I sent over with my Say A clique...
But Jia said that they didnt receive it! I'm so worried, because the postal service said that it was delivered to JYPE on 5/12/13! That's more than a month ago! :(
I've uploaded the selcas that the artistes took and sent us in the group chat here
! Do feel free to repost it, just remember to credit me, and not remove my watermark!
Remember how I mentioned that I was a little mad that I was forced to chat in Chinese? I realised that it's a blessing in disguise! :) :) :) If it wasnt for it, Jia & Fei wouldnt have been my personal translators! &I think my request for Fei to do aegyo would have been a lil awkward, given that Min would have to translate my request from English to Korean for Fei. Because I always talk to Fei in Chinese, it was more direct since I typed in Chinese! :)
I also shared my photos on Weibo, and guess what?!
Fei retweeted me
Ok, she retweeted a retweet of mine! That JYP account is an official JYP China fans forum, and she follows it and must have seen it on her timeline, and retweeted it! :D I dont care, I'm just gonna take it as her retweeting me, because I've been waiting for this day for 3+ years!
