DSCN3169

I don’t have much of their items, since I’m not really a big fan, not until this year. I don’t have any of their albums before Fiction and Fact, and I used to stash away their posters, because I wasn’t a fan..haha.

Here are some of my favourite Beast goodies!

1. 1st Fan Meeting Asia Tour Paper Bag.

DSCN3159
It is huge (like the one you would get if you went shopping) and it is made out of good material. I mean, the bag could hold my 6 image pickets, a book, water bottles and camera during the concert. And it still in perfect condition.
I like how exclusive it looks, with the Beast special logo printed all over it.

2. 1st Fan Meeting Asia Tour Image Picket.

DSCN3162

My favourite item! It’s sold in a silver bag and it can be sealed again. 24 pages of pictures of the boys, with profiles and lyrics written in English. There’s also their discography and tour schedule.

010711 The 1st B2ST Fan Meeting Asia Tour in Malaysia

Better late than never. xP
Been stalling to post this.

Date: 1st July 2011
Venue: Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach

Last Friday, me and my sis went to the Beast fan meeting. I was especially excited since I just recently became a huge fan of them.

We arrived there early, at about 2pm and there were already people gathering around the Sunway Lagoon entrance. Since it was still early, we decided to shop in Sunway Pyramid to kill some time.

After spending some money (lol), we went to the entrance at almost 6pm and people there were already lining up for the rock zone. Then some people from Dell gave out a blank white cardboard and asked us to make our own banner for their contest. Since there was still some time left, we took one and start scribbling. Haha.

The gate opened at 7pm and I was already in the line at 6.40pm. I just want to get in early to buy the official merchandises. I heard they have very limited stock.

While I was in the line, I kept praying that my camera won’t be found or else they will confiscate it. I was pretty confident since I was successful in sneaking in the camera for the last 2 concerts.

But..I was busted.

The keen Sunway staff found my camera and no matter how I tried to explain, she ignored me and asked me to go to the room where they keep all the forbidden items. She didn’t let me wear the paper wristband too. I had given up at that moment and almost gave my camera to the staff.

Almost. Lol.

Once the staff was busy with the next person, my sneaky sister pulled me with her. She told me to go first so I ..lol foolishly ran towards the surf beach area as if there were police chasing me. Coincidentally, the fans from the rock zone area were also running there to get the good spot. So me running doesn’t seem so odd.
Seriously, it was funny. I never ran that fast in a long time. I never ran in a theme park at dusk with a camera in my bag. xD I smiled at all the guards and RELA officers present, acting like I am just an innocent fan running towards my beloved idols. LOL.

Anyway, the whole running thing saved a lot of time, and I went straight to the merchandise booth. Minutes later, there were a lot of people behind me. I bought a set of image picket, which are six huge fans with their pics on it, an official paper bag and a program book. My fave is the book. It’s gorgeous.

The show starts at 8.30pm. There was a video played, showing each of the members and by this time the crowd went crazy. The boys came out on stage and perform ‘Special’. I was spazzing like crazy too. Lol. Yang Yoseob is too cute. ><

DSCN2880

The next song was ‘Soom’. Then they introduced themselves in the cutest Malay I’ve heard.

“Apa khabar? Saya Dongwoon, dari Beast-eu.”

AHHHHH damn cute XD

Then the host asked them if they know any other Malay words since they already been here for 3 times.

“Du-Durian?” – Dongwoon

“Sate?” – I think it was Doojoon

“Laksa.” – Yoseob XDDD

DSCN2877

All are food. LOL.

We also celebrated Doojoon birthday with a cake and birthday songs in Malay and Korean.

And then they call upon ‘Progression’, the dance group that won the UMM competition a week ago to perform ‘Shock’. Lucky boys. It was a short performance and then Beast took the stage again and perform their own version of Shock.

Awesomeeee.

DSCN2946

Then it was followed by a fun performance with ‘Beautiful’.

DSCN2960

The show continued with a game session with fans where they pull out 6 lucky fans through a draw. And then they were paired up with each Beast members for a game session.

DSCN2952

I must mention this here.

I was very jealous of Kasih!!!! T_T

DSCN2964

She was paired up with Yoseob and he treated her like his girlfriend! XD She hugged her, he put his arm around her, and was paying attention to her the whole time they were together on stage. Though Kasih brought Junhyung banner on stage and Yoseob was disappointed at first. Lol. He was so adorable!

Yoseob’s fan service was the most daebak. He’s the best. ^^

The game was long, and I don’t think it should be. But it was entertaining nonetheless and I get to look at them a little longer.

After the game ends, the boys resumed with ‘On Rainy Days’! It’s my favourite song! The live version was flawless, and I get to hear Junhyung cough! XD It was then followed by Fiction. Afterwards, they went backstage as if the show was over. But I know they’ll be back for an encore.

They came back, wearing white tee with Oasis and I Like You Best. They were so hyper onstage, running here and there throughout the songs. Everyone in the seating zone stood up, including me. And then we climbed on the chairs to get better view. Lol. Doojoon and Yoseob were blowing kisses and pretend to kiss the camera. They were soooo cute. ❤
The show ended around 10.30 after they performed their last song, V.I.U. Another one of my fave Beast song.

Their Own Love Story: Hara & Junhyung

I had mixed reactions when I first found out about them.

I was shocked, I read the title a few times to make sure it was just a CF or something like that. But when I read through the article, I soon found out that it was real.

They are real.

Hara is my favourite in KARA and it does make me worry a little. I really hope she met a nice guy, who can take care of her and be there for her. And when I found out it was Junhyung, I felt relieved. Though I don’t much about him, since I just recently became a B2ST fan, he seems like a nice guy. And pretty good looking too. Lol. I act like a concern unnie. xD

What really made me relieved is how happy Hara looked in the pictures. I can’t help but smile, watching her smile. And that’s when I know she’s really into this guy. And it explains why she looks so bright these past few weeks. You know how people said that when someone is in love, they glows? xD

Some fans are hoping its fake and some thinks it’s real. As for me, I think it’s pretty legit.

No matter how I think about it, KARA/DSP has no reason to create a scandal at times like this. If this is staged, it will only bring more damage to them. Because:

1. KARA’s new Japanese single will be released tomorrow. Yes, a scandal a day before could raise the sales, but could also destroy it completely. Are DSP willing to take such risk? Especially when they just starting to build KARA’s image again?
2. KARA barely survived their first controversy. Do they really need another controversy for attention?
3. Hara is the most popular member. She has more fans in Japan than any other female kpop idols (based on their Japan fancafe). I don’t think announcing their idol is taken is going to add more fans.

If this really is an experimental marketing technique that DSP pull then I really have nothing to say. There’s way too much risk. It’s stupid, from a business point of view.

But then, who knows. /shrugs

But at the back of my romantic mind, /chuckles

I think these two are dating. Knowing how honest Hara is, it’s really something that Hara will do. She once boldly admitted her surgeries to the whole world, and has no fears doing anything she wants. I think if she really like someone, she’s not afraid to show him to the world either.

And that’s an admirable thing to do.

..also foolish.

And I just want to share this post by a Kamilia (myhoneyclaire) who happens to be a huge Hara fan I found on Karaholic. It’s really sweet.

tbh, i feel so happy for these two.
the entertainment industry is so difficult and having someone special there with you just makes it even more special and easier. by being public, they can get through hardships together easier and it’ll be easier for their love to last once the public “approves” of the couple.

i keep on hearing “i dont like her” or “i dont like him” or “WHYYYY??!J KLSDJ FKLSDFJ”…
this type of stuff which is totally understandable
but i really hope people will get over it and understand that no you probably will NOT marry or even have a chance to date EITHER of them so feel happy for them because if you are a true fan, you will feel happy for them.

another thing is that i hear people say that “oh they’ll probably break up soon” and i hate hearing that.
each couple is different. they shouldn’t be compared to jonghyun and shin sekyung nor should they be compared to se7en and park hanbyul. each couple will have their own love story and their own chance at the game of love. they shouldn’t be compared to anyone. sure it doesnt hurt to compare a little but saying that they’ll break up soon just because jonghyun and sekyung broke up so soon just doesnt cut it for me.

not to mention, if they were confident enough to bring this relationship to public, that means that they want this relationship to last and they want their fans, some of the most important people to them, to be able to accept their relationship. it means that they trust their fans enough to bring this to public. kpop nowadays and kpop back then is a lot different.
2nd generation kpop idols couldn’t even be within one meter or talk to the opposite sex without being bashed on (im exaggerating a bit but u know what i mean) and now kpop loves making celebrity couples.
kpop has come a long way and hopefully this will be the start of kpop actually being normal and not having celebrities hide relationships.

lastly, i think we all remember when kara appeared on taxi and hara was crying a little and saying how her heart feels lonely. after all that hara and the girls have gone through, im glad that she has found someone who picked her up when she felt the lowest and was about to help her through her darkest times. junhyung is an awesome guy whom i love dearly and i love hara to death. i never thought of them dating but from what i know about each of them, i know that they’ll be good to each other. when i saw that taxi episode of hara crying and saying that she felt lonely, i just wanted someone to be there for her and to stand by her. not just the girls but someone else there for her and im glad that junhyung can now be there for her.

even though since im a girl i should love junhyung more than hara, i love hara more than junhyung and i can say this as a hara fan and as a girl. every girl wants that happy ending with that someone special and hara has been deprived of happy endings and good things for so long that she really deserves this. hara looks REALLY happy in those pictures. like its not that many pictures where we can see her face but out of those, she has that smile. that hara smile when shes happy.
after all the years of hardships and pain, hara has gotten her happiness and i just hope that people can be open-minded and help hara keep that happiness ♥

I’m actually surprised most Kamilia there are very calm about this news. Kudos to them for being a mature fandom. (:
Though there are quite a number of heartbroken Harawotas..

Anyway, I love you both dearly and I hope you will prove people wrong and stay strong together. He’s a good catch, so Hara, you go girl!

All the best to you both. (:
