[TRANS] 100828 A-nation ’10 in Tokyo – Fan Account

The three of them all had expressions of bliss on their faces. Their hearts seemed to be filled with happiness.

I cried during ‘Colors’.
In Junsu’s ‘Intoxication’, he was like a fish swimming in the water, his body was so flexible and relaxed and he seemed really happy. How should I say it… I just felt that he was full of happiness and contentment.
Yoochun’s gaze, his expression of joy, the warmth in Jaejoong’s eyes when he was looking at his members, I could really feel their happiness.

I’m thankful to have had such a wonderful summer.
Even though today marks the end of my summer,
being able to feel such contentment from them has really completed it.
Those of you going to see tomorrow’s performance, please bring along my share of support.

[TRANS] 100822 A-nation Osaka (Fanaccount)

A-nation 2010

The past two day’s concerts have both been successfully carried out.
To JYJ and everyone who has been to the performances, you have worked hard.

“This year they won’t be participating right?” These types of thoughts have crossed my mind, but JYJ did confirm they were going. I’ve really waited for so long for the day that I am able to see them live.

Inside and outside of the venue, there were many orange objects. If JYJ were to see this, they’d be very touched.

Around 6:30, they finally came out.
“Woaaaah~” The cheering was unbelievable. The three of them were just too handsome~

When they came out, Jaejoong looked like he did on the first day of their debut, and I’m not sure why but his eyes seemed to be slightly red.

However, when he was being the MC and started talking, he seemed very lively, very happy, I’m glad~

Yoochun seemed a bit skinnier.
His hair seemed really natural, not straightened or dyed.

How come his hair is so black?

Because the two next to him had brown hair, his hair seemed a lot darker.
Yoochun who I finally see after such a long separation, is so handsome~ it is really dangerous~

Junsu is blonde, and seemed very lively, but very cute. When the performance began, he became completely serious and charismatic.

Unfortunately, the angle for photography wasn’t very good, which is a pity.
I think one of their sleeves was ripped? Oh please! Please prepare a better outfit!
Come to think of it, every year their outfits are always of similar design..

When Yoochun and Jaejoong were performing Colors~M&H, they high fived~
Their expressions in the photographs were just too cute!

Woah~ So many things happened that made me want to faint~
I was wondering, “Will they sing ‘W’?” Turns out they did.
Especially Jaejoong’s last bit, sweaty, breathy Jaejoong!

It’s really been a while since we last saw them being this lively together, but even so, they’re still standing in front of us singing! I was deeply touched by these feelings.

Also, yesterday was the SMTOWN concert as well, Homin must be working very hard too.
I’m sure they put on a very charismatic performance~

On the same day, the five people who were performing on two different stages, still conentrating hard to put on a great performance.
But the five of them are still as Yoochun said, getting along as smoothly as water.

They are definitely like that. Like Yoochun said they are.

I wonder where they went to celebrate tonight~
Unless they immediately returned to Korea to finish filming the drama?

Ha~ Oh well, at least yesterday I was able to happily pass the night with my favourite, JYJ ~☆

[TRANS] 100822 Fan Account – A-nation ’10 Osaka Day 2

Yesterday when we saw the close up of Junsu doing body waves, a lot of people really lost it (laughs)
The amount of screaming that went on when Junsu was dancing could’ve made at least 2 to 3 people faint.

‘Colors’ by Jaejoong & Yoochun
The soulmates which grasped each others’ hands when they passed one another.
At the end, right before their harmony, I thought they were going to start singing, but then Jaejoong walked to the front of the stage, stood for a while and walked back.
Yoochun looked a little helpless (laughs)
Of course, in the end, they still delivered the perfect harmony.
The natural clutz Jaejoong and the confused Yoochun, they’re just adorable ^^
Their harmony is heavenly!!

‘Get Ready’
The dancing was absolutely perfect, and the atmosphere was amazing!

‘Long Way’
Jaejoong got a little too into it, so his voice seemed much stronger than the others and went a little off key (laughs)
Mr. Technician, Jaejoong is a careless boy, please help him along the way~

No matter how many times I’ve listened to this song, hearing it always makes my eyes fill up with tears.
Jaejoong’s singing is just too good!
Yoochun had a towel in his hand, I think he threw it towards the audience?
Yoochun with the big forehead, really is amazingly energetic (laughs)

Today was awesome!
Being able to see the three of them smiling all the time~
Like myself, most people left after watching JYJ’s performance (laughs)
They’ll be performing in Tokyo next week, I really want to go!!
But I heard it’s really hard to get tickets…
Those of you who will be at the Tokyo performance, give them your enthusiastic support!!

[TRANS] 100821 A-nation ’10 Osaka Day 1 (Fanaccount)

A-nation’s first concert in Osaka ended around 7:00PM
And JYJ’s performance began around 6:30
JYJ were the 3rd to last group to enter on stage

★Today’s live concert, there were a lot of Orange
The moment JYJ appeared on screen, the live area that was already high became even more excited
It was already getting dark outside, red lightsticks glowing is very beautiful
Of course there were many fans of other artists present, but there were really a lot a lot of Tohoshinki fans
Everyone stood up at once
The first song is いつだって君に
Jaejoong came out first, his eyes were a little red, I felt like he is skinnier
Next is Yoochun, with the haircut he looks more stylish
It seemed like Junsu’s hair was purposely made a little messy, very cute~
His blond hair is very hot, it suits him

★Junsu’s Intoxication! Still very charismatic!
Every time he swings his hips, everyone couldn’t help but to scream nonstop
At that time, suddenly saw the sleeves of his outfit coming off!!
Is it torn? Or is it an outfit designed so it could be with sleeves or sleeveless?
After discovering his sleeves problem, Junsu almost couldn’t continue with his charisma
But still, very hot!

★Jaejoong and Yoochun Colors ~Melody and Harmony~
In the end when they sang “in love”, Jaejoong and Yoochun’s voice harmonized so beautifully like in Tokyo Dome
They were smiling at each other, holding hands, very warming
During the fourth song ‘Get Ready’, there was a new dance, feels like everyone there were together, this song really is happy!
Saw on the web, their rehearsing pictures, then saw them dance it in real life
The fifth song ‘Long Way’! The lyrics were displayed on the screen, very touching, makes people want to cry.
Before at the concert I didn’t get to fully appreciate this song, it makes me so happy to hear it again today

Last song W! Still evoked many tears, their voices, hit the soft spot in everyone’s heart

Even though some people have said Jaejoong cried in the end, I didn’t see it myself

In the last part, Jaejoong missed a beat, not sure if he was chocking back tears, or if it was just a mistake
In reality, I don’t want to see Jaejoong cry again…
Getting to see the lively performance by them three, it was amazing!

[TRANS] 100822 Fan Account Osaka A-nation – The Fan Account Which Isn’t A Fan Account

My fanaccount can’t really be called a fan account, as I will probably stray from the topic.

This fanaccount is the fan account of the three of us, Da Xian, Dou Bao and I.

I arrived in Japan on the 20th, and I intended to go watch their dress rehearsal, but I’m not sure why, I suddenly had the urge to tour the streets of Japan, so I did not see any of the first day’s dress rehearsals, but I heard my sisters say that they seemed really nervous.

At a-nation, I didn’t recognise any artists except Ayumi Hamasaki, Koda Kumi and Suzuki Ami. Most importantly, the only artists i actually knew were of course, JYJ.

Japan’s weather was incredibly hot, and because my body is weak, I soon had a heat stroke, feeling cold and then feeling hot, scaring my mum who was sitting next to me, telling me to book a ticket to Seoul immediately, to not stay in Japan any longer.

I didn’t know who was performing on stage, I really didn’t know. In the waiting process, I sent text messages to Da Xian and Dou Bao (who were sitting in the F section) to pass time.

Suddenly, the Korean fan at the SMTOWN concert called, she was incredibly excited, and said that the the venue was slowly filling up, said that they had prepared a surprise for Homin. We kept waiting, and the Korean fan kept calling often, asking who was performing. In the back, I could hear the sound of many voices singing Balloons, and heard yells of “Dong Bang Shin Ki, Miduhyo!”

At that moment, Dou Bao and I began to cry, not understanding; what were we doing here? Why weren’t there five people on one stage? Why was it that, we, who were here waiting for JYJ, still thinking about the two who are in Seoul?

I began to feel bad, and the Japanese fans next to me chatted with me, trying to make me feel better. Da Xian and Dou Bao continued to send text messages, telling me to hang on, to wait until JYJ came on stage.

So, when JYJ finally did come on stage, I began to cry uncontrollably. I’ve waited so long, and now I finally see them. From their debut until now, I didn’t realize how much I had missed them.

However, I did notice: Yoochun looked skinnier, Junsu’s blonde hair was incredibly cute and Jaejoong was still as handsome as ever.
They sang song after song, letting me remember back to their debut days; they were exactly the same.

On the way here, my mum asked me why I was so excited. I proudly replied: because of the men standing on that stage, because I will wait until the day when all five of them will stand on one stage.

Crying from their debut to their end, this is completely how we feel; no matter how much pain, how much sorrow we go through, as long as we are able to see them, it will all have been worth it, no matter how long we have to wait, because as Jaejoong said, the wait will be worth it, so I will wait.

God knows what I looked like when I saw them, how badly i wanted to go and touch Junsu’s golden hair. I’m not sure if the Jaejoong I saw was crying because at that time I had already cried so much that my tears had mixed with my sweat.

The audience in the area which I was standing did not have a strong reaction before, but when JYJ appeared I saw that everyone around me was calling out Tohoshinki’s name, we were all cheering together, all commenting on how amazing they were.

Closing my eyes, listening to Get Ready and hearing the audience scream ‘OK!’ made me think of Homin who are currently in Seoul. Please do your best, we will always be here for you.

I could hear the Korean fans chanting “Dong Bang Shin Ki!”, and also hearing the audience cheering for them, I believe that there will be a day when everyone is together.

Itsudatte Kimi ni and Colors really made the tears pour out of my eyes, really, seeing them performing made everything worthwhile, though it was a pity that we sat too far away to hear what they said during the talk.

I’m not really a good fanaccount writer, I won’t write about what they sang, because you can find the song list anywhere. What my fanaccount is about, is how I felt.

As soon as I finished watching JYJ’s performance, i left; my mum wouldn’t let me stay any longer. On the way back, she was very angry. A-nation on the 22nd, I had agreed I would enter the venue early, but my body just couldn’t take it.

Before coming to Japan, my brother yelled at me, telling me that I was wasting my life, because in his eyes, my body was not capable of traveling long distances. But the moment I saw JYJ, truly, everything was worth it.

Also, the goods outside the venue, the mobile keychain was quite simple, the towel and tshirt were quite nice. Most importantly, the bow headband everyone had been so hyped about, the Japanese fans proudly told me: This is DBSK’s spirit, this is Jaejoong’s effect. I am so proud of them.

All photos of a-nation I will give to (囧囧有神), so everyone, please anticipate it. Yesterday i felt so bad I barely had the energy to hold up the camera, but today I will do my best. Dou Bao will also try her hardest. As for Da Xian, it is good that she is excited.

After watching the perfomance, I went to Waseda, I took my mum and showed her all the universities I wanted to go to. I will definitely go to Waseda Research Institute!

Also, I secretly keep from my mum, that when JYJ come to China I will go see them, because I simply can’t miss the chance. This time, I really have to thank Xiao Xue for looking after Dou Bao and Da Xian, I really am thankful, for helping me look after my little sisters. I will prepare your tickets for 911 (SMTOWN), I will wait for you to come watch. And to the people who accompanied me to the airport, thank you. I said I would give you the tickets to a-nation, so stop mentioning paying for it!

Finally, thank you to my mum, I know always going from China to Japan made you worried, and when I started spitting out blood you nearly fainted, afraid that I would be like I was after 1002 (I think she means the Mirotic Concert last year in Shanghai) Don’t worry, I’m fine. Thank you all for your support, I will keep my promise.
