Rain "The Best Show" Tour Seoul (Fan Account)


After 2 years of blabbing to everyone I know in America about Rain and how amazing, fine, talented, and sexy he is, AND how he's going to become my husband one day (lol), I finally got to see The Man.


Saturday the 24th at 6:15 am I took a 3 hour and 30 minute bus ride to Seoul. Having to wait at locations for extremely long periods (like 9 hours at LAX before I got to Korea or the 14 hour plane ride to Korea) has equipped me well for long trips. That 3 hours seemed like only 30 minutes.

When I arrived in Seoul I had a friend to meet. A young woman named Enshea who's living in Seoul for 3 months as a foreign exchange student. We first met at a contest and became friends on good ol' Facebook. It was a coincidence that both of us were in Korea AND we both had tickets to see The King of Kpop: Rain. I arrived to Seoul early at about 9:40 am and was ready for the day. One thing I will say I love about Seoul is that everything is also written in English. Wherever there is Korean written, an English translation is underneath. Some of their taxi drivers are also bilingual. That's definitely a HUGE help in a foreign country. So with that being said why did it take 4 Taxi drivers to figure out where Jamsil Olympic Stadium (the arena for the concert) was?

I finally arrived at Jamsil Stadium at 10 am and waited for Enshea. The day before we chatted about life in Korea and for some reason her experience seemed way different than mine. I won't get into in this post but I'm in the processing of writing it now. She talked about how much people stare, point, make comments, ect to foreigners. Here in Samcheok where I live, its nothing like that. Like I've said in my earlier post about Korea, not many people seemed surprised by me. Since it's really country out here I would have expected the stares. Enshea tried to warn me but not until I stepped foot into Seoul did I understand what she was talking about. You would have thought I was the Loch Ness monster walking down the street as much as people starred. (My huge hair probably added to it.) BUT our uniqueness came in major handy at the concert venue. A ton of media people wanted to interview us and take pictures. So being a foreigner does have its perks!

Some footage of us from Top Star News.




Enshea and I sat and chat for a while at the venue exchanging funny stories when the line for buying merchandise suddenly started to grow, so we hopped in. While in line a Japanese woman with minimal English asked us where we were from and if we liked Rain. Soon the line opened and we were waiting for our chance to get some merchandise from this special concert. As people in front of us had finished buying merchandise I noticed something. Everyone had a clear bag FULL of merchandise. I knew that one of the tents had said Fan Club so I was worried we were in the wrong line. We decided to ask a girl two people in front of us who looked like she spoke English. Thank God she did. Her name was Heather from Ohio, currently living in Wonju, South Korea for school. We all decided 3 was better than 1 so we stuck together for the remainder of the time. Come to find out those people with bags full of merchandise worth 100,000 won ($100) of merchandise were Japanese. The Japanese fan base for any Korean artist spend money like crazy. I don't know where they get so much from but they have no problem dropping loads of cash for their favorite artist. About 2-3 buses full of Japanese women came to the concert. Literally they came out from 3 BUSES! There were 10 buses total but I'm not sure if those were theirs also.


My lovely 10,000 won ($10) worth of merchandise. And two free buttons!

One thing weird before the show was that there weren't that many people there. We were really surprised. We were able to retrieve our tickets and merchandise within minutes. It was crazy. Come to find out everybody in Korea decided to come 10 minutes before the show which resulted in the concert being delayed 15 minutes because there was a traffic jam outside. AHH! People be on time! Making Rain wait or making me wait for Rain does not make me a happy camper.

Definitely my favorite picture of the day. ;)

As I entered the venue my adrenaline began to rush but quickly diminished as I found my seat and it was not not up to my standards. I was in the freaking middle! What! I waited until 3 am American time for these tickets to go on sale and when they did, IT WASN'T IN ENGLISH. Not until 3 weeks later did someone finally say "Hey Rain has a ton of international fans, let's give them language options!" So I was never able to buy the tickets at that time. (Someone ended up buying me a ticket later.) I also found out the browser I was using did not show me all the available tickets that were left. When all this soaked in as I sat in my seat in the middle of the arena and almost cried. I wanted to get up and leave, SERIOUSLY. I have wanted to see this man, this talented, extraordinary specimen for the last 2 YEARS and you tell me I get there and he LOOKS LIKE A FREAKING ANT BECAUSE I'M TOO FAR AWAY! Whoa. I'm glad I got that off my chest. Sorry about that. (Actually my seats weren't that bad, I think I was just overly emotional that day. Why? IDK.) I believe that bad luck and good luck can only exist if the other does. You can't have one without the other. So this was my bad luck moment. My friend Enshea bought her ticket just a week before and she got the standing section right in front of the stage. LIFE! uh!

So as I sat there depressed, I decided to take a few pictures. "Huh What? Why won't my camera come on?" Oh I know why, MY PHONE BATTERY JUST DIED. There goes more bad luck pouring in on little April. As I wollowed in my sorrow Enshea called me and asked where I was. I expressed by pain to her but there was no medicine for this. I didn't even think the concert would cheer me up. Nothing bad on Rain's part, just the fact that I couldn't see his expressions, or the flexing of his body as he danced, or the sweat flying off as he did a turn UP CLOSE. Call me a baby call me whatever. I just wanted to see my Rain.

These are the few fuzzy pictures I did get with my phone before it decided to DIE on me.


The Rain USA Banner! From afar.



Can't see JACK huh?!!!!

After they announced the delay of the concert I decided to chat with my neighbor. His name was Jesh from Thailand. He asked me how long I had been a fan to which I loudly answered 2 YEARS! He quickly guessed it stemmed from the Ninja Assassin movie. He was right. When I asked him the same question he stated 7 YEARS and had previously seen him at the Rain The Best Show in Thailand. I felt like crap. In no way was Jesh trying to put me down, he just simply answered my question. I blame my measly 2 years on me living in the country!! No access to other cultures! NONE! That's why I left Kansas City! Nothing there.
Anywho Jess explained he had decided to take a vacation and this concert fell right within that time. I noticed the camera he was taking pictures with was quite good for how far back we were seated. LIGHT BULB! And it flickered brightly in my head. I asked if he could email me the video and pictures that he has taken. He gladly obliged and I gave him my email. I smell good luck brewing! (Still waiting for those pictures though.)

After 15 minutes, the lights dimmed and a video started. It was superstar Rain sitting on his king throne seat in a matrix type setting. He then rose up and started to dance. My heart was pounding faster and faster. I didn't think I'd be able to breath. A few more seconds went by and BAM! The man appeared high in the air. I started BAWLING LIKE SOMEONE DIED. Never in my life has that ever happened. I've liked Sisqo, B2k, Usher, Chris Brown and seen 2 out of the 4. NEVER have I felt overwhelmed with so much emotion over an artist. Rain inspires me SO much. He is a huge reason why I wanted to travel to an Asian country and open myself up to new things. (No not to find him and ask him to marry me lol) In the Midwest there's a set equation to go by. Be born in your state + go to college in your state + get married in your state+ have children and be a soccer mom + die in your state. That's it. Anything else is unheard of. That had never been my foreseen future but its easy to get swept into it unknowingly. Discovering Rain intensified me wanting more, seeing more, experiencing more. It put that extra spark under me to just do it. Whatever "It" was, I wasn't sure but I was going to find out soon.

With my degree being in Fashion, its a simple fact that New York and London are the be all of fashion, but for some reason I was never drawn to either. I wondered where my fashion calling lay. Tokyo answered. Now I've always enjoyed Asia culture and movies but it stopped there. Everything to now has stemmed from broadening my perspective of the world. This situation was like finding out there was another door I could open, one I never knew was there. I am now living in Korea chasing after my dreams just as he did 11 or so years ago auditioning for JYP Ent. He did it all while having an extremely sick mother at home to worry about.  After she died it made him stronger and more determined to make it and make his belated mother proud. He wanted to be able to take care of his family. He went after his dreams full force with a strong heart and HE made it. My family situation is very similar to his. I feel Rain made it through and so can I. (And you all though I liked him just because of his golden abs! Ha, Tricked ya!)


Opening scene. Please mark minute 1:50 as it is the exact moment I started bawling. lol

So I was overcome with strong emotions. Seeing a person that I admire so much right there before my eyes. Though far, I could feel his presence from my row. I would like to add that Rain's fan base in Korea is overwhelmingly Ajummas (the name for older Korean women). About 65% of the fans there were ages 35 and up. 35% were Japanese and the last 15% were under the age of 35. A Korean friend had already told me this so I wasn't surprised but to see it with my own eyes was amazing. They came out in droves some with canes some without. It was very inspiring.


*Side Track moment*
Having an older fan base is much more stable than a younger one. Kpop now is very trendy and so are its fans. In the Fashion World the teen market is known to be fickle.  That's why there are fast fashion retailers like Forever 21 (cough, cough lol), H&M, and Zara.{And this section is where my Fashion Degree knowledge arises lol.}They want things now and tomorrow something else. It never stays the same. The older aged market is known to make expensive planned purchases like a car, house, or mink coat. Something that will last them a long time. This is why brands such as Burberry and Louis Vuitton have been out for so long. They established a consumer base who wanted quality over quantity. Rain's Ajumma fans are that base. They aren't going to throw him away like the teeny kpop fanatics who crush over their favorite Ukiss member and next week be on another group. (I like Ukiss' music. I'm not bashing them.) The Ajummas buy his merchandise in bulk, they support any charitable actions going on, they go to every show. They are loyal. They invest in an artist whos light shines brighter than the rest. He's like their son. They want him fed and healthy. And by the way Rain is the GodFather of Kpop so new kpop fans need to RECOGNIZE WHO PUT KPOP ON THE MAP and who's the reason why their favorite group can travel the world and be recognized.
*And I'm done with that rant."

Anywho I had asked Jesh beside me if Asians stand up at concerts or not because I wasn't sure. In America we stand up the entire time (or maybe that's just black folks at concerts lol). But we stand the entire time. As this show went on everyone sat down. I didn't want to though. I mean how could you sit at a Rain concert? Come on now. So whenever a fast jam came on my butt jumped up and others around me followed suit and before you knew it the whole stadium was up for a while. The Ajumma beside me said she had wanted to stand too. She danced the entire time. She had to be about 55 to 60 years old. She LOVED her some Rain. I had made a poster to mimic an American flag for the concert. I wanted to make sure Rain knew someone from the states loved him. When he sang "Love Story", I was mezmerized. When he did "Escape the Sun" and it showed the footage from 2003 when he first released the song it was bittersweet. I yelled out funny things like "Dea Bak" which means incredible when they were filming him getting undressed in his dressing room and "Speak English Rain!" I don't know why he doesn't translate what he says for his international fans.


One of my favorite songs he sings live. "Only You".


And the very sexy "One." Brace yourself. I had too. lol

I'd like to add that when I tried to get up after Rain said "Everybody on your feet" my legs wouldn't work? Does Rain just have that effect on women or was it because I was wearing 5 inch heels? Or both? I was sitting for the most part of the beginning so I'm not clear on how my legs literally gave out but if its for Rain its worth it!!!! Rain always cares so much for his fans. So that everyone could get see him up close he drove around in a cart around all the sections. OMG He was even closer than before! I could feel his aura from where I was sitting. DAMN YOU CAMERA PHONE!

After it was done (or so I thought. After he had waved goodbye and the stage door closed, people stood there for like 2 minutes waiting.) Come to find out there was an encore! I guess I'm not in the loop. After that fest where we all jumped to 90's duo group Kriss Kross' song "Jump", it was over. As I checked the time it was 7:50 pm and I knew there was a possibility I could catch that last 8 pm bus back to Samcheok and save on a motel for the night. The station was only about 5 minutes away from the venue. A taxi drove past me into the parking lot and I yelled for it to stop. He waved and said "No" and some other inaudible things in couldn't understand in Korean. Come to find out he was waiting for people who had reserved the taxi.

THANK GOD HE SAID NOOOOO! This is where my good luck comes in. As I huffed and tried to figure out what my next plan of action was (and where I was going to sleep that night) I saw some fans waiting behind a barricade. I quickly went over to see what it was about. They were waiting for Rain to depart the venue. OMG! I get the chance to be a FANGIRL in Asia! How exciting! I found a place with a good view and waited with the others. The Ajummas were in full force. It was only me and like a few other young chicks in the mist of the small crowd. As the hour went by MBlaq departed and some other random people too.

Finally 1 hour and some seconds later THE MAN came out. Now I thought he was going to head straight to the car and leave. NO. He came down where we were and started from the beggining of the line to the end waving, smiling, saying thank you to everyone! I grabbed my poster really quick to make sure he saw it. He smiled and his face turned to mine and he waved. RAIN SAW ME. I SAW HIM BUT MUCH MORE IMPORTANT: HE SAW ME. I wanted him to know, even if for a brief second that a young bushy haired black girl from America loved him. And for that second he knew. Seeing him was magical. His skin was the color of butter cream. His black cardigan and white t-shirt fit his slender, tall, shape so well. From his head to his toes. PERFECT. TV nor photos do him justice. He looked like he had 0 body fat. I felt like a short fat Oompa Loompa being next to him. lol

Footage of Rain leaving the concert that night.

I think around the :19 or :22 second marker was when he went past me. I think he was attempting to read my poster but word to the wise: glitter doesn't show up well in the dark. But at least he saw the red, white, and blue.

So after my string of bad luck I was able to see the man, the world star, the model, the philanthropist, the actor, the ambassador, the sex symbol, the humble man from meager beginnings, from only 3 ft away.

I love you Rain and Please be safe in the military. We will be waiting for your return.

내 이름 은 정수지 입니다

Ha ha! I just wanted to show how amazing it is to have a Korean keyboard! The above says "My Name is Jeong Su-Ji! I asked Kelly (Kyung Hwa Park) and her friend Stella (Hye-Hyun Baek) to give me a Korean name. Kelly is another teacher at the school who is Korean (born in 1988 like me but in korean years shes 24) that is majoring in English and her friend Stella is her college buddy. Kelly and Stella are their english names. Yesterday we were chilling in Stellas dormitory eating dumplings and cow intestines and liver. Needless to say I did not eat the cow stuff. We watched the Korean American Idol type show and Music Core which is like Trl or 106 n Park where artist perform. A few things we chatted over and I learned are as follows:
  • We gushed over Super Junior and they explained to me how there are so many new groups debuting that they can't keep up.
  • Theres a new girl group called AprilKiss! ahh I have my own KPOP group!
  • Kelly told me that some people (or mabye just her) dont like Taeyang from Big Bang because he's oily and greasy. Ahh You cant talk about my Taeyang! I love Taeyang.
  • She explained how TVXQ are like gods here and Big Bang would be number 2. 
  • That mostly Ajummas (older korean women) in Korea like Rain because he is so muscular and manly.  (Duh Of COURSE) Its also knowN in Korea that he is extremely poplular world wide. Thats why hes called "World Star Rain!" lol
  • She said 2pm has great songs but their kind of like regualar people here so girls don't go too crazy over them. Nickhyun is the most popular because he is foreign.
  • Also that a lot of foreigners are being put in KPOP groups because Koreans think foreigners are really pretty.
  • Super Junior isnt that popular over here and that the Europeans really started to love them after "Bonorama" came out.
Anywho Kelly and Stella were really excited to help me pick out a name. They asked me who my favorite korean artist was which of course I replied "RAIN" duh!. So my last name is JEONG like his. Then they asked who my favorite female singer was which I chose Sooyoung from Girls Generation. I think she is adorable. So my new name became JEONG SU-JI! Kelly said I can now say am Mrs. Jeong. We cracked up and giggled about my new name and she said I should start telling people that's my name! Kelly is hilarous.

Well theres a little update and some funny things that have happened. When I get a universal charger pretty soon I will have pictures to load and show. I also visited the beach and saw the sea. It was the most spectacular thing I've ever seen in my life. We were beside green lushious mountains. I will go back soon and enjoy it on a non-rainy day!

Soon I will back to posting about fashion when my lap top is back up and running.

Kamsa Hamnida!

My New Life in Korea

UPDATES:
The soup with clear noodles, eggs, and neck bones I had the first night I got here was called Gal Bi Tang (pronounced Kal-Pee-Tang).

Also I found out those two "channels" I told you all about are only available in my hotel/motel so they are not on public television. Thats a relief!

Hello everyone!

Hope all is well. This post will be short (okay im lying) but I will add to it later since my computer access is limited right now. I just moved to Korea Friday to teach English. I live in Samcheok which is kind of country and is about an hour or so away from Seoul by train, 3 hours by bus. It is Saturday here and Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) is happening until Tuesday. Which means I dont have to start work until Wednesday!

Instead of making a really long post which I would be filled with all my adventures I will summerize them in bullet points and expand on them later. I will be back to updating my blog and such when I am able to find and purchase an universal plug so I can charge my lap top. This is also an update for my family and friends since I can't get a cell phone here until my ARC (Alien Registration Card) comes or when I my bank account opens (whichever happens first). Also this post will have many typos because the spell check doesn't pick up English typos here and I am paying by the hour to use the internet so I won't be on here long. (Also I cant use facebook right now because I'm in another country and can"t verify its me using my account because my US phone is now off. So for now blogging is the best way for me to connect with everyone.)
So without further ado!

  • I spent 9 hours at the LAX airport waiting for my flight. My only means of transportation was a taxi for the most part. I did hook up with a friend from when I came out LA for a kpop contest in May. She picked me up from the Korean consulate and drove me to the airport. We would have hung out longer but she had something already planned later on and she also didn't want us to stuck in LA traffic by the airport. Thanks so much Sarajane and I hope to see you soon!

  • In total I spent 9 hours at LAX, 14 hours on a plane, and a 3 hour bus ride to Samcheok. Crazy right? When I finally was able to get to go to sleep Friday night around 10pm here in Korea I don't think I had slept since sometime early Thursday morning. Its kind of hard to pin point the exact time since it was an international time change when we were flying.

  • I met the most amazing people on both of my flights. The first from KC to LAX I sat next to a woman named Jennifer who is the Senior Vice President National Account Sales for Sexy Hair (hair care brand). The entire flight we talked about fashion, from Forever 21 being able to expand so fast and afford to ship so much merchandise at a cheap rate to the new trends that were emerging. She also said they were looking for bloggers to work with at the company so we DEFINITELY exchanged business cards. She also said they were searching for a Director of Marketing so she is someone I will continually keep in touch with. Possibly when I am done teaching here in Korea I could interview and work for the the great company. She was definitely a fabulous woman who I was very happy to meet. God Bless you Jennifer and I hope we can work with each other in the future.

  • On the flight from LAX to Korea I sat next to MAMA CONCHITA! An amaxing 71 year old woman who practically adopted me on the plane. Anytime I want to come to the Phillippins I can come stay with her and her husband Sergio. She taught me how to say "I love you" and a few other words. "Salamo!" She said when she saw me she thought I was from MUMBAI INDIA. Which of course is a good guess but not correct lol. Her husband then began to guess and said Mumbai also, then mexico, then spain. Again incorrect! When I told them I was black they just said "OH". Very surprising to them. That just shows most of the world has one image of black women. But in actuality we come in many colors and thats what makes us so amazing!!! I told them about my German heritage on one side and Native American on the other to which she was more content with and undersood. She also thanked God for allowing her to meet me SHE SAID. She said she really had wanted to talk to me when she saw me sitting in the terminal. Mama Conchita thought I was very beautiful and she said when she saw my smile she knew that I had a good personality. She also said (sorry im using so many "she said" in this post) she tried talking to me earlier on the flight and thought i was ignoring her but she then realized i was knocked out sleep. lol She told me to call her MAMA CONCHITA from now on. She gave me her address and told me about her ENTIRE family, her 5 kids her parents 5 kids, her divorced daughter being a pharmasist and her daughtershusband being sterile and such lol. Very intriging indeed! I have her number and will send her my info and keep in touch with her. She also wants me to send her a picture of me and to never forget her. HOW COULD I? LOL
  • Im pretty sure i scared the sugar hunny ice tea out of MASEO which workes for my recruiting company that got me out here. He picks up teachers from the airport. He can speak english somewhat but Im pretty sure I tested and unintentially broke his confidence in speaking the language. He couldnt understand me 65% and i could understand him 55% of the time. I thought he was saying did i want go to "Toyland" but he was actually asking me if i needed to go "to the toilet". You all that know me know that I speak very fast so I think i scared the crap out of him. He was very sweet though and we cracked up the entire time because of our language barrier and me cracking jokes the entire time. He said i had a great personality and i was very smart because i kind of quessed what he was tring to say by using clues since i could really understand his english. I started to finish his sentences for him so he smiled and was happy i made it much easier for him. Also about the whole "toyland" "toilet" thing. For 5 minutes I thought he was saying he could take me to Toyland from which i replied "YES!" Come to find out the bus that i was waiting to board was going to be a 3 hour bus ride and he asked me if i need to go "to the toilet." They dont say bathroom or restroom here. Its just toilet *jotting down in notes*

  • Alright next would be the students at my school. All were very excited to see me. Were quite shy but asked me tons of questions. The school is very small and i only teach anywhere from 1 to 7 kids at a time elementary to middle school. They asked me about my family, WHAT AND WHERE the heck kansas was, and if i was married or had a boyfriend. They were very surprised that i knew about kpop. They seemed very estatic and impressed. Across the street is the high school part of the english academy. I went in there to use the computer and all the boys came to the window to the office and were staring and i think one of them were even taking a picture of me. Some of the girls were acting like I was a superstar or something. They were extremely giddy and were jumping up and down very excited. They really liked my style and that i had no lenses in my glasses. One of the boys were bold enough to come up to me and introduce himself and said that he LOVED PRESIDENT OBAMA. I told him I loved him too.

  • I ate my very first korean meal with the owner of the school and his longtime girlfriend. They are extremly nice people who I am very blessed to be around. I have heard horror stories of teachers experiences with some of these ESL schools. I prayed to God that I would be in a good school with good people and He answered my prayers. Also when we were eating the waitress at the resturant complimented me on how I held me chopsticks. WOW i have never in my life recieved that compliment so that was a first. So when eating at a korean resturant you take your shoes off at the door and sit on a pillow on the floor. I had some soup with clear noodles, eggs, and neck bones. You know I tore those neckbones up! There were 6 different types of Kimchi at the table but I only tried one. It is just way to spicy for me!

  • Today the owners girlfriend is taking me to the beach. Im not sure if its still going to happen thought because it is raining right now in Korea but hopefully we can still go. Like I said previously it is Chuseok (Korean Thanksgiving) in Korea this entire weekend and then two days off monday and tuesday. SO i got REALLY LUCKY because i get to chill for 5 DAYS!

  • I am the only english speaking teacher at my school. One of the head teachers here named Christine speaks pretty good english so she has been helping me around. She translates well and is a sweet woman. She is helping me find an universal plug to i can charge my lap top. Right now I am in a "PC Bang" which is where you pay by the hour to use the computer. All that are in here are boys playing online games. Who knows how long they have been in here. Christine took me to McDonalds out here. Which is very different. They sell ice cream like DQ, have shrimp burgers, cheese sticks, and waffels that are eaten for snack.

  • I dont know if Ive written this already or not but the korean people dont seem that shocked to see me. From readings online and talking to people they always spoke about the people being shocked to see a foreigner and very curious. I havent had many people looking/staring. Now there have been some dont get me wrong. One man said in english that i was beautiful. I should have asked him where Rain was...LOLOLOLOL kidding kidding! Anywho no one seems to speak english. The Dunkin Donuts out here you hand pick your donuts from the glass counter like at Quik Trip. I thought that was pretty cool. The only somewhat mall/shopping area/walmart type of place is a store called Home Plus. They sell everything from TV's to coloring books, to grocerys. Also on every corner is a cell phone place. Something that is very different is that all the young kids walk the streets by themselves with groups of friends. Im not sure where their parents are but they must trust them  A LOT! Its almost like how all the young folks hang out at the plaza. But of course the kids here aren't acting like dang fools.

  • Another big thing is (and probably number one) is the language. I already wrote about no one really knowing ANY english but the fact that i have to get used to people talking around me and me not understanding. Yesterday the kids and Christine and others were holding full conversations in korean and i just sat there smiling knowing good and dang on well i couldnt understand a thing. By no means were they trying to be rude but since english isnt their native language i can totally understand. And hey IM THE ONE in their country not the other way around.

  • I forgot to talk about the amazing 14 hour flilght! Asiana Airlines is an amazing airline. I had two meals and contiuing drinks. The first meal I had was beef with bean salad, caesar salad, a roll, cheesecake, potatoes, and mixed vegetables. There was also a choice of a korean food called Bimbipap The letter "b" is pronounced "p" just so u know!) Also they continuously served water, apple juice and orange juice. They next meal was breakfast it was either the western meal: an omelette, ham, fruit, and some other stuff or the korean meal: spicy octopus and rice. Needless to say I skipped the spicy octopus and opted for the omelette. Im adventureous but not THAT adventurous.

  • I know i said i wouldnt make this long but somehow it came out that way. I need to head out of this pc bang. theses dudes are coughing up a storm and not covering their mouths. Since i havent gotten my shots for over here yet i am too vuneralble to get sick. Also the koreans dont have a word to say when they sneeze like "Bless You" like America does. I can definitely see that girls dont go to PC Bangs lol. I am in a hotel right now for the next 3 days because my apartment is not ready yet. I dont have to pay for it thank God! Hopefully i can get my phone soon so i can be connected with people again. Also the apartment I am in I thnk is for people to get it on in because one of the light switches when turned on flickers red and blue like in a night club. Needless to say I didnt sleep in the sheets.

  • Speaking of sheets it surprised the heck out of me when flipping the channels to see a soft porn channel on cable. Im thinking "cant kids just turn this on by accident and watch?" And this wasnt even late at night when it was on it was the MIDDLE OF THE DAY. very wierd indeed. They do love the home shopping network like in america but one channel i flipped through had a woman selling a um how can i say this???.....dildo....and um....testing it.....Nothing explicited but again I AM SHOCKED AS HECK. I just use the remote to flip channels and this insane stuff appears. CRAZY!

  • I SWEAR I AM ALMOST FINISHED Lasty my hotel room is cool. when you walk in the light is motion sensored, then you take your shoes off and step up a step to the room. If you want to go to the bathroom their are bath shoes at the door for you to use. Pretty awesome!

  • Last but not least after my 3 hour bus ride my new boss was at the bus station to pick me up. I told him i had to go to the bathroom (which they called it the toilet instead of " i have to go to the bathroom" its "i have to go to the toilet") so when i get in there and open the stall door, there was no toilet but a hole in the floor and drain. It was like a toilet in the ground where u squat on the floor to pee. I just turned around and exited the bathroom I quickly made the decision that i could just hold it till i got to the hotel!

  • Okay im done, until next time! Hopefully I will be able to speak with my mother soon because I know shes probably really worried but she needs to go JUMP ON A COMPUTER BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN SENDING HER EMAILS. Mom go use grandmas computer! its our only means of communication right now so you got to get on it!! Anywho I love you family i love you grandma i love you brothers i love you abby and to my readers GOD Bless and have a great weekend!
