Well my first week was boring, I had nothing to do, no news...the second week my dad came and we went to Koreatown in LA.
My first reaction: Oh my god! The buildings have Hangul on them! (yes, I know, how smart of me.) We are officially in Koreatown! YEAH!
We were there for two days. We found an inn to say in, and then my sister and I ran to the center plaza. I, of course, went there to find me some DBSK goodness. I practically screamed/squeaked when I saw their poster in the music shop. Didn't really buy anything, because I already had all of the songs and I am somewhat boycotting SM, but I couldn't resist their 'The 2nd Asia Tour Concert "O"' So of course, I made my sister buy it.
Then we went into a bookstore and bought a workbook to learn to read Hangul and some other basic Korean Words. I, being a DBSK fan, tried to write DBSK, and their Ki character was written as Gi, and the Shin part came out as Seen, but I was okay with that...my Korean friend explained. So...catching up to Korean, though my Japanese is not even perfected. GAH!
Ate some Korean food...the meat was delicious. I ate BiBimBab (?) I think, and my sister drank the Kimchi soup. (I can't tolerate spicy so I did not join her) I ate sweets there too, so I am not surprised I got some extra pounds...can't wait to get back to school. Got a free ticket to take a photo with a decorated tree (yay for me). The shopkeepers were happy that I wanted to learn Korean. :D
Then we went home, and my dad went back to NYC, and my mom brought us to Japantown.
She and her friend went to Macy's and because my sister and I were left to our own devices we went to look around some more. I wanted a DBSK poster, so I went into a shop, but they were sold out. At first I was dissapointed, but then I figured they were popular so why the hell cry about it? (proud fan) Then I went into Kinokuniya to look for magazines with them...nada, zilch, zero. I kept seeing Arashi so my face was "D:" where are they? ;.; So I took my miserable $30 and spent them on a cute Japanese notepad with a Jewel Cat, 3 pens, and two erasers with peach/strawberry smell.
Then I went back to that store and it was time to leave, and guess what? I found magazines with them on it. I spazzed, then cried because I spent all my money on Strawberry Pocky and other things...there was even a book with all the piano parts for 2009 popular songs...They had the "Colors Melody and Harmony" and the song from their Pinky (which was delicious) CM. D: We had to leave. (I didnt even get to do PuriKura...so that was dissapointing) Oh well. Maybe this year. I also got my TVXQ hoodie after we came back from KT, and it is gorgeous!!!!!!!! ;D
Hope I can order their single Break Out! and their Best of album. <333
Oh god, I watched Xiahtic...and I will never look at Junsu as an innocent cutie. *Q*
