The amazing thing about this group is that you can be half out of the fandom and kind of yeah well this doesn't apply to me anymore cos it's, you know. I've better things to do, like read a book (not that I am saying anything against books, okay, just that they're a completely different sort of pleasure), and then BAM you go watch their concert just because they're here and you know that Super Shows are always fun, and BAM BAM BAM you're pulled straight back in like you put a foot into quicksand.

They're just so absolutely fantastic at tugging at your heartstrings, making you want to cry, instigating you to laugh and scream ridiculous things at them like: "GET IT SUNGMIN", and dressing up as Marilyn Monroe and Britney Spears and Steve Jobs and still managing to look madly adorable. And I mean, if you're able to look adorable in a black turtleneck, jeans and a creepy centre parting while chomping on apples, you've got a mad talent, just saying.

Also, OUR LOVE. I'm dying to find a fancam of it on the second day because it was the most stunning moment I've ever encountered in concert. All the factors just culminated together (despite the lack of EunHae, which I'm still bewildered over cos, I mean, no EunHae during Our Love?! The world, it is collapsing!): 1) Almost every single fan in the stadium holding up red hearts, 2) the absolutely gorgeous remix and musical interlude, 3) the video of their debut days and first concert, 4) the boys all hugging each other, 5) the fans singing one verse unaided, 6) Teukie and Shindong both crying. It was a gorgeous moment. I can't even begin to describe it. Certainly it's not on the musical level as say, X Japan, but it doesn't really have to be because it was so emotional and you just wanted to bawl and be all, aww my boys look how far you've come and despite all the members leaving and leopard prints and fishnets and music videos in a box - YOU'RE STILL HERE SINGIN' TO US.

The opening, too, was kind of...stunning to say the least. With the stadium waving the glittery blue lightsticks (okay, so Sapphire Blue Ocean is not the most mature name around but the effect is still very beautiful) and the stage all flashing red and the boys coming out silhouetted against the red light and...SUPER JUNIOR, THE LAST MEN STANDING! God it was dynamite! It was goosebumpy! It was screamy! It was - OH MY GOODDDD LOOK AT THEMMM THEY'RE SO PRECIOUS AND ARROGANT AND DESERVEDLY SO! And BAM BAM all the greatest hits came rolling out one by one, Twins, A Man in Love, Opera, Don't Don, Rokkugo, etc.etc. and you're like okay so what if they have an average age of 27.5 years and are thus considered a step before being fossils in the Museum of Kpop, THEY CAN MOVE. AND THEY CAN MAKE YOU MOVE, OH YES THEY CAN.

All the solos rocked out, Kyuhyun with his beautiful harmonica rendition of "Isn't She Lovely", Henry with his Bruno Mars (I LOVE BRUNO MARS), Hyukjae with his SAY-MY-NAME (and you'll always be Lee Hyukjae, stay that way, you couldn't be more fabulous if you were Brad Pitt - actually you would be older and graying with a little belly so.), Sungmin with his girl-grinding, everything was so - for lack of a better word, wonderful! They just make you smile and sing and dance and chant along. And of course, Oppa Oppa. BEST CONCERT SONG EVER EXCEPT FOR ROKKUGO. Says something that it got HALF A STADIUM OF SOUTH-EAST ASIAN GIRLS ROCKING OUT. Cos we're South-East Asians, and we're as slitty-eyed (well actually SE-Asians have pretty big eyes) and poker-faced as they come. You do not get us out of our seats easily. We have special butt glue that keep us stuck to our seats. And yet half the stadium got up and bounced and screamed OPPA!

The ridiculous antics and getting splashed by jets of water and the cheesy pick-up lines ("Everytime we come to Singapore, we're amazed at how beautiful the country is. But even more beautiful, are the fans. What do they eat to make them so beautiful?"), the comebacks ("CRAB!"), the silly bantering ("I want to do this for ten hours." "....YOU DO IT YOURSELF."), the bowing, the gratitude, the interaction, the acknowledgement of fan projects, the always-on understanding of what fans want and the sincerity in wanting to please their fans and put on the best show (cos, I mean, FOUR HOURS AND JETS OF WATER HITTING THEIR CROTCHES).

I love this group and I will sing my heart out for them, and I will wave my little blue lightstick (that says 'Donghae' because it's the only stick I have that works - um), and I will clap till my hands are sore and scream "SARANGHAEYO <insert name>" during Our Love. That's all. ♥

Omg gem I love ur little fanacc. Tho it's not long ass with all the full details it has all the emotions I was feeling ;~;
And our love was really sooooo amazing! Had goosebumps and it's also the first time I really felt so so so overwhelmed by the atmosphere and honestly it can't be felt just by watching DVD. Oh yes, I also loved the white lights during storm, because the song itself is alr a rly sad ones, and with the white lights I almost teared ogod(emotional much).

Lol anyway during our love I was screaming at donghae's part like WHY NO EHNHAE UGHHHH ;; oh wells.

I think it's true: no one puts on a show quite like Super Show. It's ridiculous high-energy and an experience completely indescribable without having been there. It carries so much feeling in a lot of unexpected ways, I think, and totally sweeps you away.

They're just so human that it's impossible not to relate to their humanness ♥ plus they always give it their best shot and they're so kind to the fans, showing appreciation and gratitude and trying to make sure that everyone gets to see them up-close, they just genuinely want you to have fun and get your money's worth and that's what they did!

IT WAS SO GOOD GWEN. It was seriously the best concert I've ever been to, better than our SS2 Malaysia, it's like they just got everything right!

Everything about super junior ♥♥♥

Occasionally I try to convince myself to leave fandom and idk, do something else, it's always the boys themselves that pull me right back in. Which makes sense. Although I must say having friends like you around to shriek with is equally important in making it an ~experience~

Bahhhhh America is so far away from everything good in my life it seems. Want to see another concert with you!

OMG! Done watching it! I'm so moved! The entire performance was touching.. I was laughing at SiMin at first because they were adorable but when the VCR showed, bam! I was crying! Seeing their hardships and their struggles since their debut made me feel like sappy shit.. And seeing Kangin and Heechul in the VCR made me miss them more :((( And when I saw Teukie crying I can't stop my tears from flowing. There's just this heart-wrenching feeling that I feel whenever I see Teukie crying.. It's like his tears are so precious and seeing him cry would made you bawl.. :3 Thank you for sharing this video, really.. :")

oh dear, i wish you would write this fanaccount as long as you write your fic. there's something that only us, who love them can understand. and only when you standing in the stadium with your little lightstick in your hand, watching them, shouting for them, do you know what's that feeling. Oh god, I now remember how I shouted Hyukjae's name in vain in SS3 cos he was always on the opposite site with me, slapping, fanservice - ing with other zone. and our love, if it is all good for me, i wish i could experience it for real.
