I Became An Outlaw and K-POP Fanmeets Can Be Dangerous

So, yesterday, the grand finale of the KPOP World Festival India Qualification was held. The auditorium was “super far away” from my house. So, I  became “super late.” It was a do-or-die situation for me. I had to meet N.Sonic no matter what but I couldn’t enter. I tried and tried. I started throwing tantrums. My friends came to my help and provided passes. The security guard opened the gate no. 4 for some volunteer and I pushed the security guard and got in! We ran to the auditorium hall. It was great! We screamed like crazy fangirls on the top of our lungs! That’s how I became an outlaw!

After the show, a fanmeet event for N.Sonic was held. My friends and I tore the crowd to get in. I could only see their heads! Then, we tore the crowd of crazy fans from the other side but that turned out to be a bad decision. There was a fangirl standing near me. She seemed to be from the North East and behind her was a North Indian fanboy. She suddenly screamed “How dare you touch my butt?!” She beat up the fanboy! I looked at the girl with a feeling of inspiration and felt like helping her but I had no time.  

We only got crushed. A girl pulled my hair! And I got hit near the LED T.V in the lobby. The security guards tried their best ton the got crushed and everyone threw the barricades and then I saw Minki. I didn’t say. I couldn’t because the crew members didn’t let me. But that’s the closest I ever got to an Idol! Fanmeets can be so dangerous!

 

My Head Just Exploded….Can You See The Pieces Flying? Part 1-Annoying People

I don’t really care about critics but one of the readers told me that my blogs are impractical. I felt really conscious but the whole idea of this blog is to be practical. So, I re-read all my posts and asked my mother (my best adviser) what she thought. She said that I was practical like always. I guess, being practical has become the most impractical thing now because human beings want to live in a dreamy wonderland where everything is like cotton candy and life is just a piece of cake. Long story short, we want to live in delusion. Being a hypocrite, living in delusion and being diplomatic has become practical in life.

Anyway, that’s not this post’s about….. I’m going to rant about the most annoying people I’ve met.

I was “Dork Diaries” by Rachel Renee Russell. In one of her diary entries, Nikki says “Why does all the good things happen to evil people or people who don’t deserve it?” That’s somewhat true. There might be this one person who is praised for every crap thing he or she does. For example, if that person finishes her homework on the last minute, her parents are like, “Oh My God! You are so sincere!” Is there anything sincere about finishing your duty at the last moment? I don’t think so! Compliments should be saved for people who really deserve it.

“Never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something.”-Chris Gardner from The Pursuit Of Happyness

Now, I’ll talk about “Self-esteem Wreckers.” These people try their best to wreck your self-esteem and offend you in every possible way. For example,a this person says “I’ll go to Mumbai and become a Bollywood star!” And then I say “I want to go to Korea and become a K-idol!” She’ll be like ” What will an Indian do in Korea? Don’t do it! It’s hopeless!” And I’m like, “What’s a Delhiite going to do in Mumbai?” I have been trying my luck in k-entertainment and I have realized that you have to go through a butt-load of rejections. I have gone through a lot rejections. Then, to put fuel to the fire my relatives, sarcastically, say, “Did you finally become a Kpop star?” I mean, if I try to get in to Bollywood, do crap roles in crap movies, that’s okay and is I try to prove how talented people in East Asia are, I’m an idiot or “chinki” (overly Indian racist word). 

Who are the most annoying people you’ve met? You can tell me.

 

Souvenirs Can Be Like Consolation Prizes

So, today, I participated in the preliminary round, India of Quiz On Korea 2014 with my friend. Both of us couldn’t make it to the final round. That’s okay, we’ll win next year! We didn’t get the lucky draw prizes or the grand lucky draw prizes, either. But we won Korean Tourism souvenirs and merchandises which are also known as “consolation prizes” as in to “console” the disqualified participants.

The consolation prize to "console" the participants who couldn't make it.

This prize is indeed useful, if you’re going to Korea (which is not happening with me!). The guide books, the book about the cuisine and the photobook are very informative…..and the fan is good for when you don’t have electricity at home.

I liked this book. I like Korean food, you see!

I like the way Korean people set their table. It’s so systematic and organised. They have numbers for their dishes like Kimchi is usually the 9-cheop or dish. Some of the dishes are very healthy. If you want to go for a detox diet, you should have seaweed soup and rice punch!

The awesome and useful fan we got!

This fan is awesome! It’s really useful to get rid of the Delhi summer!

The travel guides have information about food, museums, temples and academies all over Korea, as well as, useful Korean phrases.

The Photobook talks about Gi, Heung and Jeong

This photobook is beautiful. It talks about important elements like Gi (energy), Heung (fun), and Jeong (peace).

The experience was good. Hopefully, next year, we will make it to the final round.
