EPIC SM TOWN 'LA 10 Compilation

« previous entry |

(This was rejected by an Omona mod for not being 'newsworthy', so I'll post it here for anyone who would want to discuss and peruse it.)

So Omona, it's been one month since the amazing SM Town LA '10 has existed, and I have put together a:



in order to document the very real fact that the idols we love, that we've only seen on Youtube, DID COME, AND THAT WE ALL EXIST IN THIS CRAZY WORLD. But I do have one thing to ask from all of you:

It'd be amazing if we could create a collective Omona memory regarding this event, so please, share your experiences/fan accounts/photos/random details, and for those who didn't go, go ahead and join the discussion anyways, since SM Town LA was really for all the international fans out there. Anyone and everyone who feels connected to this somehow can contribute.

To kick off this crazy weekend, several international fans decided to greet them at the LAX airport (even though that the plane was a private, chartered, unlisted plane, smart people were able to figure out that it takes roughly around 11 hours to arrive at the airport from Incheon. (I can only imagine the faces of random LAXers.)



(The girl above managed to give her gift to Key omg - it was a Mr. Potatohead.)

"The girls have gone mad for SHINee!"
More crazy shawolism (your only chance to make eye contact with Jonghyun)















Aside from the headliner SM Town acts, we also have very lovely people, like Sunday and DANA from CSJH the Grace, Kangta from H.O.T., and Zhang Li Yin, all who sang really well and deserved applause. Also, f(x) was there (without Amber, except that my friend in Floor 4 did see her sitting within the audience). The Jung sisters also did their Tik Tok duet, which was really cute.






















(Absolutely ludicrous when SHINee went on. Omg. It was really sad, because I got to see the SHINee bbs when they were on deck, and walking to the center stage to perform, and they had this very nervous vibe before they went onstage. What was really interesting was that I talked with a few friends afterwards, and we thought there was this overwhelming feeling of shock that our SHINee boys were here, which was reciprocated, as I remember their really shocked and ecstatic faces during their introduction. However, it didn't actually register until they started performing Replay that they WERE here. I even saw a girl cry, and I felt like tearing up, it was really amazing.)










(Trax is flawless.)





(There were several amazing special duet stages throughout, but these were the first three, and all were perfection. Heechul is smoking hot though, total prince of darkness feel to him. Henry is adorably badass. Taemin played the piano.)










,











(And the special stages continue! The SeoKyu duet was interesting, because I don't remember people ever stopping gasming over the fact that their uberbiases were on stage. Jjong and Yesung worked it, but it was really A-Yo that brought it. Minho was ABSOLUTELY *Flaming Charisma* and not Keroro that night.)










Seohyun + Kyuhyun






Yesung + Jonghyun














(SNSD also was just charming and prection that night. What was also surprising was that they were also nervous as hell as well, and it was so adorable how giggly and surprised they were during their introduction as well, they were absolutely feeding off the crowd.)


























SuJu Group Huddle, before the first performance! This photographer was located in section 118.









(It's Super Junior, man. The screams, I remember they were a weird mid-pitch scream that emanated all over the stadium, very different from SNSD's and SHINee's, and they never let down. I also remember Bonamana also threatening to take out my chest cavity from the bass system.)












(Key was really smoking and dominate here, from what I remember. Manly, actually.)












Key + BoA








(Sorry Sorry (remix) was one of the most interesting performances of the night, especially for a song that is essentially overplayed - so awesome.)












(Up and Down was just so ridiculously fun, Oh! was perfect, but I really think Quasimodo was one of the most impressive performances out of the night, since I really saw how Onew and the others reacted to the relentless cheering, and how they were tearing up towards the end. It's amazing how performers really emit their feelings and vibes during a concert.)




















Onew + Ryeowook








(Fierce Dance Battle is Fierce?)












(BoA has the smoothness and grace of someone who's been werking the stage, ever since she crawled out of the womb. Owns the stage completely, although it was interesting how it seemed almost routine. HoMin was intense though, I still stand by my prior description that "we were screaming like HoMin were the holy gods that were going to deliver us from the apocalypse.)


















Photos from all the SHINee performances.






Full Album Here




Photos from all the SuJu performances.





(Get it, Kyu.)




























(Heechul taking the Heedictator fan - wasn't that by one of our very own Omonars?)













(In the U fancam, you can see Sungmin taking a floor seat fan's camera, camwhoring himself, and then giving it back to the fan safely. You can also see Heechul holding a Heedictator fan :3 Which I believe was by one of our own very Omonans.)







(ENDING)





























(Hyungwhore is on the attack.)







(Onew being lulzy at the ending <3)



















Share all the juicy details people, I want to hear it, and save it forever in the Omona archive of awesome.

Thank you, I'm glad at least one person thinks so! The mod complained that this post crashed her computer =/

Still wondering if it'd be wise to go back and push it onto Omona, but at this rate I'd just like to see it posted somewhere where there's a lot of foot traffic ( any suggestions?)

tbh i think they'll just say that it's "old" news now. like i said, you might wanna link it in the next ffa w/ really big and obnoxious font or ask your friends to pimp this out.

That sounds like a game plan, and IA about the old news bit - would you mind helping out if you see an opportune moment, if you don't mind? I'm not really familiar with any fan/SM communities on LJ, although I think I know my way around the fanforums.

Thank you again for looking through the post :3 Make sure to click on the big thumbnails too, since some of them are wallpaper size.

I have midterms I should study for but man, this must have too SO much time to code :O

Good job! It took a few moments for this to even load on my browser lol. I only glanced at it but will go through more later. I'm glad you included David's pictures--he's a nice guy and my Soshi fanboy buddy lol.

Coding itself took like 20+, because I had to manually thumbnail each photo and resize the videos, as well as coding the credits, but thank you for appreciating the effort! Make sure to click on the big images and not just the small ones - some of them are up to wallpaper size.

David and I are good friends (although I haven't talked to to him in the past week, oops), and he was kind enough to send me his photos for use. I actually have 100 photos from him that I didn't upload yet, because well, the rejection killed the rest of my momentum, but they're all very splendid. Fantastic guy :3

There's probably a very high chance that we might even be friends on fb or seen each other around XD

Dave spams me every so often when he catches me on facebook chat. I still commend him for answering the bulk of the camera questions.
