100829 a-nation Tokyo Part 3

This is by a Chinese fan who went to a-nation.

I went to a-nation yesterday. Since I live pretty far away and I had to go to a meeting at my University beforehand, I left home at around 8 in the morning. After I attended my meeting, I took a bus to Shinjuku from Shibuya and then took the Keio line to the venue. The stadium was around 10 minutes walk away and it was 1:30 by the time I finally arrived. This was my first time there and it felt a lot like Tokyo dome. Since my friend and I arrived pretty late, we were worried that all the merchandise might have sold out so we quickly hurried over to the stand. There was a really long line and up ahead we saw a sign that said “JYJ T-SHIRT SOLD OUT’. Apparently only the JYJ shirts had sold out, tshirts for other artists were still in stock. As we were waiting to get to the front of the line, I scanned the rest of the crowd. I was in such a hurry on my way in that I didn’t really take a good look around, when I did, I realized that almost everyone around me had an orange towel around their necks with ‘JUNSU JEJUNG YUCHUN’ in big bold print. I felt really happy then because no matter where I went, I’d bump into people with orange towels, even fan boys. Because I was so late, the t-shirts, bows and totes had all sold out and I only managed to buy a towel and a fan. The fan had a cartoon version of JYJ, kawaii.

When I was done buying merchandise, it was 2. My friend and I hurried into the stadium, found seats and sat down. A sudden loud noise shocked us both and we saw that Koda Kumi was first up on stage. People started to get excited as she walked on. Koda Kumi’s singing is absolutely amazing, the studio and live versions are exactly the same. The Bigeasts/Cassiopeia that were there cheered really loudly for her, probably because she takes good care of our Dong Bang boys. She sat on a vehicle and went around the stadium once, waving to people along the way. A few singers that I didn’t know the name of followed after that. Since it was right in the afternoon, the heat really was quite unbearable so my friend and I decided to go out and wander around for a bit because we were both only here for JYJ anyway, it didn’t really matter whether or not we saw the other performances. We bought shaved ice but were still really hot afterwards. We agreed to go back in after the sun set and so we went back in at about 4. More artists we didn’t know the names of performed… We waited… and waited… During the break, the cameraman panned the camera on the audience. We saw a few cute kids but then the camera suddenly focused on a few JYJ light boards, they wrote ‘JYJ We Love You’. At that moment, a thunderous round of applause sounded throughout the stadium and everyone enthusiastically cheered for the girl holding the board. Then the cameraman zoomed in on even more fans with JYJ signs and merchandise, and everytime he did, the audience would applaud. Looking around, the entire venue seemed to be covered in orange. My friend is a new fan and didn’t really know how legit us Cassiopeia/Bigeasts are so she was completely awestruck. DBSK has so many fans it’s kind of scary.

People started to get restless at 6:30 and many started taking out their red glowsticks. There even seemed to be more members of staff all of a sudden. One held up a sign which said ‘No video/audio recording or photography, even mobile phone photography’. There were lots of staff around us watching our every move so we couldn’t take any photos or film anything even if we wanted to. In front of me, a girl took a photo, but then got her camera confiscated and was told that it’d be returned after the concert. Despite this, I still managed to sneak in a few shots.

After a while, JYJ appeared on the big screen. All the red glow sticks came on around the stadium and the screams hit peak. Cassiopeia/Bigeast completely took over the concert. Even though you weren’t the focal point of the concert and even though your performance wasn’t particularly long, we gave you your red ocean. I wanted to take a photo of the red ocean, but couldn’t because the security was so tight.

Then Jaejoong appeared followed by Yoochun and Junsu. My immediate thought was that Junsu had lost some weight and then I noted how cute he looked with his new blonde hair. I’d thought that Yoochun would’ve cut his hair short by now since filming for his drama was already over. In the end, he still brandished the same long hair and his wide forehead. Jaejoong ah, he was still as handsome as ever.

After the first song was over, it was time for Junsu’s solo. His amazing singing and sexy dancing had the audience screaming incessantly throughout his performance. Then it was time for soulmate’s ‘Colors’. Jaejoong and Yoochun stood on opposite sides of the stage and then swapped positions. In the middle when they were singing “lalala’, the sound was completely phenomenal. On the last line, Jaejoong playfully stopped singing and just as Yoochun got ready to sing, he said ‘hold on a moment’ and then started laughing….

They then performed some songs from their new album. When they were singing ‘Get Ready’, the fans sang along with them at the ‘OK’. When they got to ‘W’, I really couldn’t hold my tears in anymore, the lyrics really brought tears to my eyes, but since I had a friend beside me, I tried to contain myself. Shockingly, my friend started to cry before I did and I burst into tears with her. When their performance was finally over, nearly all of Cassiopeia/Bigeast was in tears. The stadium was completely covered in red. I’m grateful to the Japanese fans, thank you for your unconditional love for them.

As Junsu walked off stage, he turned back longingly to look at the red ocean. His eyes seemed to brim with tears….

My friend and I left after JYJ’s performance was over. Even though we felt slightly apologetic to the artists who performed afterwards, I had to leave because I live so far away and I was afraid I wouldnt be able to catch the bus.
Being able to see JYJ had me completely content.

Even though I’m really tired, seeing JYJ made me really happy. My only regret is that I went in heels and now I’m so tired that I’m afraid to walk.

A-nation really moved me. Those of you who haven’t seem them live really should go and take a look for yourselves. Seeing fan videos is nothing compared to seeing them live.

100829 a-nation Tokyo Part 2

A lot of details were omitted when this was translated from Japanese to Chinese so this is only a rough summary.

Lots of the fan glow sticks had already been switched on by the time Jaejoong started singing ‘いつだって君’

At the beginning he looked like he was going to cry.
Actually, he didn’t look too well. Jaejoong are you okay? I’m a little worried.

Yoochun asked ‘Ready OK?’ twice when he was MCing.
The first time he said it, he said ‘Compared to when we were in Osaka, I’m not feeling too well.’ And then he said it again.
Jaejoong said that he realy wanted to try doing Yoochun’s ‘Ready OK?’ ‘How are those of you sitting above?’ ‘How about the people on the left, good?’ things like that.

Junsu had to prepare for Intoxication, so he didn’t say much.

‘Colors’
Jaejoong is so cute
Everyone sang together lalala~~~

100829 a-nation Tokyo Part 1

Around 50% of those in the stadium were in orange at the beginning, by the end, there was 70-80%.

The time JYJ came out was around the same as when they were in Osaka, as we approached the moment of their appearance, the guards became more strict.
Even as I took out my phone to check the time, I’d feel scared.
The songs they sang were pretty much the same as those in Osaka.
At around 18:40, when the sky was slowly darkening, the three of them finally walked out.
All the red lights suddenly came on.

They sang six songs in total, and this pretty much sums up how I felt:
Jaejoong is really cute
Jaejoong is absolutely stunning
I felt electrified by Jaejoong’s voice
I could hear Jaejoong’s voice echoing in my head
Jaejoong was hilarious during the MC section
I was kind of entranced by his dancing

Yoochun looked really happy and he was especially talkative during the MC secton. ‘Junsu’s introduction was so boring, don’t you guys think? It was seriously boring (^W^), I’m Yoochun~ (He said this with a cute voice).’ He yelled ‘OK’ more than once and said that ‘That wasn’t as powerful as when we were in Osaka’ and did it again. Yoochun was smiling and laughing from the beginning to the end, it was absolutely adorable. He was also the only person who threw a towel. (Jaejoong threw a towel at the end)

When Jaejoong was MCing he said ‘I want to yell OK like Yoochun too’ And then he walked to centre stage and yelled ‘Are you all awake~~??’ twice.

I don’t remember much about Junsu, but he was very charismatic.

Yoochun’s rap in ‘Colors’ was cut and towards the end, Jaejoong stopped the song. Yoochun asked ‘What are you doing?’ and then the two of them started bickering like an old couple.

Then they ended with ‘W’

When they were singing the official a-nation song, Yuki got on stage and started calling her friends on stage to sing together. ‘AMI SUZUKI, KODA KUMI, AAA~~’ etc. lots of her friends came up. Just as I thought she was done, I heard ‘JUNSU~~!’ Of course, Junsu was going to be singing as well, I was shocked for a moment but didn’t think much of it until I heard’ JAEJOONG, YOOCHUN~!’ She shouted all three of their names! The three of them walked on in orange t-shirts~! Even though they only had one line each, I was glad I didn’t leave half way through the concert.

100829 a-nation Tokyo, Aug 28

The first day of the Tokyo live is over.

As you can all see in the pictures, the stadium was full of red lights and orange towels, it really looked like the red ocean. It was beautiful in the evening dusk.

The three members were full of energy.
Yoochun seemed to be slim (his chin became sharper), and he was always smiling his soft and lovely smile.
Junsu was high-spirited, and his smile was dazzling.
Jaejoong was as always, so handsome, and his vocal was strong and yet so beautiful.
I wish I had more English vocaburary to express their powerful stage.

Oh, I really love their live performances! Their songs were in high quality finished form compared to that of their performance at the Tokyo dome 2 months ago. That’s our JJY!
Junsu seems to have changed the delivery of some of the phases in “Itsudatte Kimini”, and he sometimes showed his lovely smile during Intoxication, in which he usually doesn’t show (to set off his manfulness). He looked as though his heart was leaping for joy, standing on a live stage.
Yoochun was shouting “Minna tanoshimu junbi, OK?” (T/N: Everyone, are you ready for the fun?) with all his might, and he seemed to be so happy on stage, too. I’ve seen many of their live performances, but this was the first time I’ve seen Yoochun so full of smiles throughout the performance. I could feel that he was enjoying a fulfilling life at the moment.
Jaejoong was as always, so beautiful to the eye. As in the Tokyo dome, he was taking the leading role during the talks. His Japanese is so fluent now, it is delightful to the ear. He seems to be the one who was sharing the most high fives with the other two members.

One difference between the dome and a-nation was the song “Get ready”. They danced to the music, so now, it is a full dance song. During the introduction, Junsu was dancing in full blast in the center of the three members, his dance was so manly and powerful, it was beyond words.

Their performance was really a stage of true artists. The venue is an outdoor stadium (T/N: home ground for the professional soccer team, FC Tokyo), and the acoustic quality should be poor compared to that of indoor stadiums. But their vocals were ringing throughout the vast stadium.
And, moreover, it is a-nation, the stage is so wide. The three seemed to running around on stage, so that they could get near the audience as much as possible.

Their performance was the third place from the last, same as last year. I was happy to know that their standing position in avex has not changed, though everything has turned upside down.

We were able to hear ayu hamasaki’s live performance of “Blossom”. During ayu’s song, I tried to imagine how Jaejoong would look in the PV. I know that it would be lovely to the eye.

I was wearing a yellow Evisu T shirt (same as Yunho, lol. I am a great fan of Yunho). To be honest, I felt a little bit lonely when their performance had started. I looked up at the evening sky, thinking that the sky has no border, it should cover Seoul, too. But I did not feel the deadly loneliness that I felt at Tokyo dome. Maybe that was because I myself heard the words of
Mr. Arikawa (PD for the movie “Kimiga Odoru, Natsu”) the day before. We should wait… for the time being….

Hearing their last song “W”, I burst into tears. It was not because I felt sad, but because I felt wistful and lonely. The three wholeheartedly sung the song. I could not forget the expression of the three before they sung “Aitakute” (T/N: I want to see you, meet you). I thought I saw Jaejoong’s eyes become watery. Junsu’s soul-stirring vocal stood out. Yoochun was singing with all his might.
Their live performances are so soulful, I could sence their love for live stages.

Today I will again go to a-nation. This time, I am planning to put on pierced earrings of Bossanova.
