[FANACCOUNT] 100828 JaeChunsu - Haneda Airport Fan Account

My friends and I started planning a week ago to go to the airport, but the flight was not confirmed until 5 in the morning on Friday. My friend had to go to work that morning so I had a hard time deciding whether or not to should go. In the end, I decided to go alone.

I arrived at the airport at around 7:30, and since it was still quite early, I stayed in the domestic section for a while. At 8:40, I walked across to the international flight section.

I was once told that Japanese fans don't generally go to the airport to see their idols, so I was a little worried that I'd be stopped by security. When I arrived, the place was packed with fans, it was completely insane. There were already around 200 people waiting and the security was trying to get them out. I was also stopped by a security guard, but after he let me pass through after asking a few questions...

People started to flow in as the clock struck 9, and by 9:30, it was quite simply an entire sea of people. All through this, I was texting my friend. She was excited while I was anxious. The fans were still pretty well behaved at 9:40, but by 9:50, we heard screams coming out from inside. I stood behind a row of seats in the hope that I'd be able to take a few photos after they walk out, but I'd underestimated Japanese fans. As soon as the three walked out, I lowered my head to grab my camera, and by the time I looked up again, I could already see Kim Jaejoong's glorious blonde hair bobbing along and just like that, he walked out emotionlessly wearing a pair of sunglasses. Despite the security guards' orders for us to remain seated, all the Japanese fans who'd been sitting stood up and rushed towards the trio from all directions. I was completely shell-shocked and so I just stood there holding my camera as I watched Jaejoong drown amidst the sea of fans. I managed to take a few photos, but after that, I just stood there gawking. By then, Jaejoong had managed to get past the fans and was now walking in front, the security guards' attempts to keep the fans away were to no avail. The Japanese fans kept screaming 'JEJUNG JEJUNG', blocking the way ahead and he had to battle to get through to the exit.

I managed to push through the fans to a different door and raced ahead to get to their car. Looking back, I saw a pack of people running towards me. Many fans had already reached the car by then and the guards were warding off the fans standing beside the car. I took a few steps back and watched as the fans continued to pull at Jaejoong and he was escorted onto the car by the guards. After that, I moved away from the crowd and towards the front of the car so that I could wave at Jaejoong. Haha, god knows whether or not he saw~~~

By then, Yoochun and Junsu were already on the car and it drove off pretty soon afterwards, leaving behind it nothing but a puff of smoke…
The Japanese fans around me were completely wild and as I stood in line to wait for the bus, I saw a mom fan going through the photos she'd taken, except I was too embarrassed to ask if I could see…

This is my first time seeing Jaejoong at the airport and the first time I'd been to Haneda Airport. I was pretty confident that I'd be able to see him, but I honestly hadn't imagined that it'd be this chaotic, the Japanese fans had my slightly disappointed. When I called my friend at the bus stop, I could feel tears welling up in my eyes, and as I listened to the Japanese fans chattering about beside me, I felt neither the excitement nor the thrill of seeing my idol. I felt my heart aching.

My friend and I have decided that the next time we go to see them at the airport, we'll rush to the front and try our hardest to protect Jaejoong from the crowd.

P.S. This is the photo I managed to take. I didn't realize that it was Junsu I'd captured, please don't brick me, I really honestly thought I'd focused my camera on Jaejoong... He walked away too quickly.
