Today is a busy day in one of shopping malls in Jakarta. It’s highly possibilities just like the other malls in entire capital on the weekends. It’s even getting busier at the foodcourt that lately I love visiting.
I was roaming around for loosening my muscle and also looking for one or two electric sockets for my gadgets, I saw few groups of mostly girls not only using various cute accessories and but also holding cuter stuffs on their hands. At first glance, I could guess, it might be something related to Korean thing.
And yes, I guessed it right after barely washing away my curiosity and later asking two of them who were sitting next to me on a public bench, where I finally found the sockets.
One girl came from outside Jakarta. The fact that wasn’t surprise me. I used to be one of them. In my whole life, I have attended two concerts; one was the concert of Bon Jovi in 2015 and before that, the first one was Running Man meet up. My last mention was not a concert because they were not a band who performed, only came and conducted some programs. Just let me pass this time thinking it as a concert.
Something amusing was happening when I talked to these girls besides me. The other girls’ groups were busy having conversation about every single detail of every single idol they liked. It seemed to me that they already watched together the program they had been talking about. I didn’t mean to eavesdrop their conversation, but they might be too excited to meet the idols, so they were unable to controlled the volume (not our faults). Nevertheless, the conversation was amusing to my ear. Thanked to them, it put smile on my face and kind of bringing back all my memories when I used to too much in love with the idols just like them (I still like some of them now).
It made me wonder, whether I was like that too. 😀 😀
One thing I remember that no matter I liked the idols, I had never been that person who gave effort for that ‘special lining’ things such as closer meet up with the idols, signing events, or hand shaking or stuff, which were usually held before the main concert. Too tiring to do though. 😀 I also had never been someone who wanted to spend extra money for collecting the idols’ stuffs. Too expensive to afford and just not my stuff, not necessary for me. 😀
I still listen to some of (what the girls said as the old idols’) music, but collecting paid idols’ stuffs had never been my thing.
Have you had K-fever like me? What is it? Mine was Jay Park, FT Island, Taeyang, and many more this and that. 🙂 ❤
