It. Was. Surreal. I mean, I wasn’t one of the 150 chosen for the fansign but Mbi (ASDaze Translator) and I decided to try our luck seeing Orange Caramel anyway. We showed up 2 hours early and there was a line. Because we weren’t actually allowed in the fansign, we stood in front of the door that OC would come through.
After two hours, Lizzy, Nana, and Raina walked right in front of us and into Baskin Robbins! They bowed/waved and went to sit down inside. It kind of felt like I was dreaming. The second I saw Lizzy, I kinda froze and by the time Nana rushed past, I was already braindead, like my brain couldn’t process what I was seeing. I might’ve lost consciousness for a second when Raina went in. Dae (supah awesome Singaporian/Indonesian fan) joined us and pretty soon we were standing there for two hours, staring through the windows, watching OC sign autographs, film some videos, take pictures, and SMILE. They smiled a lot and it kind of took my breath away.
Lizzy looks better in person. (She hot, guys. Not that you didn’t already know but Lizzy in person just KILLSYOU). Nana looks exactly like in her photos (AKA drop /dead/ gorgeous), and her hair was really nice (I noticed how it bounced when she was walking). Raina looked like a doll (&classy with the hair) 🙂 During the fansign, Nana was bopping her head a lot and smiling. Lizzy was super energetic and moved around a few times, as well as being her usual overbearingly cute yet still adorable self when they filmed some video for Mnet. I couldn’t see Raina where I was standing. They also did the choreography for Abing Abing inside.
There was this stupid elevator that kept getting in my view of Nana. But when I could see her, I seriously couldn’t stop “wowing” in my head. I’m not one of those fans that freak out and scream, I kinda just freak out in my head. And my head was going craaaaaazy. haha 😛 Let me tell you, imagine following/supporting these girls online for the last 4 years and for like 4 seconds, they’re right in front of you. My mind couldn’t take it.
Then when they left, they waved to fans and went to their van. It all went by pretty fast.
There weren’t a lot of fans that came specifically for OC and waited outside. It was mostly just people who were walking by, saw the sign and wanted to take pictures through the window. Haters passed by, too (“who is this for? Orange Caramel? let’s go” lol). Also, the crowd was disturbing this man’s business (street vender) and he started cursing OC and yelling at the staff. OC wasn’t there yet so they didn’t hear him, thankfully. And 80% of people who stopped were like “Nananananannananana” haha, every other word I heard was “Nana”. Her popularity is pretty obvious.
(i know that wasn’t much, cause not much happened but I wanted to share my experience as a foreign fan)
THEY. WERE. BEAUTIFUL.
NUFF SAID. if you ever, ever get the privilege of seeing AS in person, don’t forget to breathe.
I was pretty much on a cloud for the rest of the night.
I wasn’t expecting to even SEE them, so it was all too satisfying standing right where the door was! then the three of us (Me, Mbi, & Dae) went out to eat, talked about AS, and then went to karaoke to sing AS songs 😛 no one does a night out like playgirlz&boyz 😉
p.s. we’re delivering the “Right Here, With You” project to Pledis on monday!
