just a week ago I was here in Pyeongchang as it is near Seorak Mountain. but before I blog about my school trip to Seorak Mountain, I would like to share a little bit with you about this fabulous event held in a famous Ski Resort, Alpensia Resort. I thought I was at another country.
the scenic view in Pyeongchang. mmmm. travelling 3 hours here was definitely worth it. but it’s just such a pity that we didn’t get to go to the beach this time.
at the resort! 3 different levels, hard, medium and beginner. =D. the beginner is like almost a flat land. and the hard is…. so super duper steep.
with the Russian contestants! they were teaching me how to say “cheese” in Russian. it was something like “SIIII” and I ended up with that stupid face hahahaha. met 2 friendly Caucasians and they called me the Waldo girl before knowing my name hahhah.
the hotel rooms! =3. so very pretty.
and that’s Continental Hotel.
there were plenty of visitors all over the world here to support the contestants! the contestants were “Special” but the thing is, I do not see anything wrong with them, they were all so fabulous and probably better than any of us non-special people.
it is much steeper than it look. the cones were very nearby and to ski board it in a criss cross manner, it wasn’t easy. at all. the Russians were the fastest when I was there. completing it at 35seconds!
with Marinah from Kazakhstan! she’s so adorable.
they all had cool skate boards. not like the normal ugly ones you see everywhere teehee.
spam =D. aww she’s so pretty U_U. she has a cook blog which is pretty famous I heard!
these two mascots were so super duper cute. I was so curious on how they look like. we were fooling around with both of them and found out the “girl” is a guy hahahaha. and they were like hitting each other. it was so funny xD.
supposed to be clothes for married women but oh well =X.
not a fan of my chinese name but they had to make me a fan out of it. U_U. but it is still so pretty. I’ll use it well! thank you KTO!
and then it was snowing heavily. I wasn’t wearing any sort of thin leggings at all. =D. bare legs. but of course it was freaaaaking cold. =S. but not too bad because my feet were warm. snow boots 쨩~!
and then we headed to the Winter K-pop concert. I have some pictures of the poster but it’s in my phone and I’m lazy. but anyway, the line up was Ze:a, U-Kiss and N Train (a new group. 6 months old.) who just got back from their Japan promotions.
to be honest, I’ve never heard any ZE:A songs before. but I had always stalked Kwanghee and Siwan’s pictures when they attend radio talk shows. =3. Kwanghee wasn’t there and I couldn’t recognize which was Siwan T_T (phail stalker). but this guy above was hot hot hot =D.
and this guy had such old-school hair but it was some hair to die for.
which is Siwan?! which which?! I am guessing the 2nd from the left. hmm? but the guy who had the nicest voice was the guy on the far left. which seemed like was totally ignored because he wasn’t as cute as the others. such a shallow world.
anyway lets skip to U-Kiss!!!
another truth to be told. I don’t think I’ve heard U-Kiss’ songs before. maybe I had. but I don’t recognize any. I am just not that into K-Pop. but after watching them perform once, I’M GOING TO SPREAD THEIR AWESOMENESS!
I still couldn’t recognize most of them as it was my first time seeing them (despite meeting Alexander twice and had a long long long talk; around 5 mins whom was awesome) and hearing their songs. it was not bad to be honest. pretty catchy. awesome stage performance; they were such energizer bunnies. and that guy on the far right is called Eli. I’m a fan of his starting from the day I saw him. his coolness melted me D=. and that guy with long hair has awesome hair. I once went up to a HK artist (as in, he draws comics. his name is Johnee =3.) and asked him for a picture because I liked his hair. and it was similar to his. hahahahaha.
I’m such a troll. Eli’s face was epic. hahahahahhah. and the first guy is Kevin (probably 2nd cutest in the group?). he speaks most of the time. in English of course. this was actually an event organized for foreigners. I don’t think there were any Koreans other than those working for KTO.
and some closer pictures for N Train. there was a photo session but I wanted to go home quickly before we get stuck in the jam so I just left hahaha. plus I am not a fan so =/.
don’t know their names yet =S.
a group picture with a foreigner from Kyunghee Univ.
and guess who I saw upon exiting? UKISS! Eli smirked at me. or at least that was what I believed so. only caught Kevin and Mr pretty hair on camera because their aggressive guards literally smacked my camera =_=. guards in Korea uses VIOLENCE. no joke. I heard SM guards are worst. they don’t tell you not to take pictures but instead they slam your camera. if you drop it, it’s your problem I guess. oh well I will just not take any more pictures. it’s just for you guys to see actually =S. anyway! I said hi before I took out my camera and they responded with a pretty smile. but I guess I was like a weird paparazzi who just said hi and then pointed a camera at them. so rude of me T_T.
anyway, good experience. organized by Korean Tourism Organization (KTO). =).
