Just saw this comment on baidu, decided to translate it ^^ Having seen Hyun Joong in the flesh before, I can reawi see the below scene in my head. And every time non-fans praise Hyun Joong, it makes the mummy-fan in me very happy ^^v
“@Gelzo: Korean fans are really fortunate!! They were walking right next to Hyun Joong, and he also stopped to take their gifts. When he was on the escalator, he also waved to fans. There was a korean fan who said to him, ‘Have a safe trip back’ and he said, ‘Yes’ ^^ Next to his ahjusshi bodyguard, he looks so slim ^_~
There was a young couple with their child, after Hyun Joong went into the departure hall, the mum said, ‘He’s handsome isn’t he’, and the dad with a look of envy said, “Handsome, really handsome!” ^o^
(via baidu forum 小孤单小情绪，twitter @Gelzo)
He just reached Shanghai a few hours ago to perform at tonight’s fashion show. The great thing is, the turnout at the airport to receive him was amazing, but the crowd crush when he appeared was crazy -apparently the huge crowd surged forward and it was pretty chaotic, he was pushed and jostled and groped and people were stepped on etc, someone on Baidu also said that they even heard a korean lady on his team swear because of the chaos… I do hope everyone didn’t get any scratches or wounds…..
