Just some pre-amble before going into the Cri Show… based on my limited experience so far, it is definitely not easy to be a fan.
Pre-requisites of being a fan:
Security at Thai Cri Show was even tighter than Singapore. The lady security staff even patted my back pocket to search for cameras. I had asked Ferlyn to smuggle her slim compact camera in, so that got me worried but we managed to get through. However, in the process of trying to film, I was warned by security 3 times. All the other people were taking videos using their mobile phones, but since I had a camera, I was the only one being stopped. Usually, I wouldn’t be so thick-skinned to engage in something so blatantly illegal, but all I wanted was to take clear videos of JKS.
In the end, since the use of mobile phones was permitted, I resorted to my mobile phone too. That explains why I don’t have videos of the first fan-meeting part, because I was struggling with an unfamiliar camera, various technical problems and the strict security. Not much loss there, since the fan-meeting part is quite similar to other Cri Shows.
Also apologies in advance for the lack of clear pics and videos. I’ll still be posting several videos in later posts. They may not be super clear, but I think they should be enough for a general feel of the Cri Show.
For video clarity, I would strongly encourage JKS supporters to buy his official Asia Tour 2011 DVD IF it is released. I will get it too. If you haven’t been there at his Cri Show, the DVD is the next best thing because you can see him up close in the comfort of your own home 🙂
The videos I took were definitely not comprehensive. After holding the phone camera up for 1 minute of a song, my arms started to ache like mad and are still aching now …. (I didn’t know that camera-holding counts as exercise that can cause muscle ache …. suppose if I do more of this, I may get slimmer arms XD ), and it was only sheer willpower that sustained me till the end of a song. So sometimes my video will start halfway into the song and not at the beginning. Again, for a complete viewing experience, please support JKS’ DVD. 🙂
I mean, I did not even tail JKS after the Cri Show, while some other fans, after a long and tiring day, after hours of standing at the Cri Show, still managed to do that….
Ok, back to the Cri Show proper, so what is the difference between Bangkok Cri Show and the Shows in other countries?
The first fan-meeting part is generally the same, starting with the songs “Let me cry” and “Oh my Darling”, followed by the interview in Thai. The animated and cute emcee kept us entertained even though we didn’t understand the language. The only two questions I understood were one asking whether JKS liked Go Mi-nam better or Wi Mae-ri better. Also, JKS described Hwang Tae-kyung as a bad boy and the emcee asked JKS whether he was a bad boy like HTK. JKS’s answer was “Sometimes.” Well, at least, he’s an honest and cute bad boy : p
Similarities are: playing the selection of scenes from “Marry me Mary”, singing the slow and fast versions of “Hello Hello”, interview related to M3, showing of his Europe trip DVD scenes and selection of photos (with a few new photos that are wonderful), selection of scenes from “You are Beautiful” and picking 3 lucky fans based on ticket seat number to answer questions about YAB.
Now I didn’t deliberately take these pics below – just that the camera happened to be working at that time, so I captured these shots ^^ JKS hugged the 3 lucky winners who were up on stage to receive their prize for answering YAB questions accurately.
And below is a string of pics showing JKS at the interview segment.
