Aftermath: Nam Joo Hyuk Private Stage [Close-Up] Fanmeeting in Manila
23 September 2017 – Kia Theater, Quezon City
True confession: I attended the Nam Joo Hyuk fanmeeting without knowing who Nam Joo Hyuk is. I mean, I know who he is, like what dramas he’s starred in. But that’s just about it. I’ve never seen any of his dramas. So when I say I didn’t really care about the guy, it’s because I don’t know him at all.
You may ask: why did you spend good money for this fanmeet if you don’t care about him? Three reasons.
(1) Blogging purposes. My longtime blog readers know this. I usually spend good money even on Korean artists that I’m not a fan of just so I’ll have something to put on this blog aside from my usual subjects;
(2) I missed covering K-pop/K-drama events. So why, you may ask, did I not spend that good money on Korean artists that I at least know, like G-Dragon and Taeyang? Actually, I asked that several times, myself; and
(3) My Voltes friends (aka. my friends from the Rain/K-entertainment fandom) are going, and I really missed them a lot. This is really more about me reuniting with friends rather than the actual event itself.
However… Right now, I admit that I’m super-glad that I went to this fanmeet. I didn’t expect much because, as I’ve said, I didn’t really care about Nam Joo Hyuk. But after seeing how he is with fans, I decided that I like him.
