Although I live in Korea, I live a little far from Seoul, so I don’t go often. When I do though, it’s pretty interesting.
A couple days ago, I went to Lotte World with friends and afterwards, we shopped a bit. I decided to stop by a music store to see if they had any DBSK albums. I wasn’t expecting much since it was a really small store, lost in the sea of other boutiques and stores. But they happened to have every single album O_O. I was tempted to buy some of their earlier albums (such as Tri-Angle and “O”), but I didn’t have that much money so I had to pass *tear*. I wanted to purchase their Japanese album ‘Share the World’ and the store had both the CD + DVD so I bought it.
While the cashier was ringing it up (he was an elderly man), he told me in Korean, “Since you bought Dong Bang Shin Ki’s album, I can see you’re a fan so I’ll give you a free Dong Bang Shin Ki poster.” <——— OMG!!!!!!!! I DIED INSIDE FROM FANGIRLING IN MY MIND.
He went to the corner of the store (trust me, it’s a small store, the cashier is in one corner of the store while he went to a different corner and it was only 4 or 5 steps away) and he gave me a free poster!!! Two of my friends were jealous because they’re also DBSK fans XD Not as big as me though (no, I don’t mean that to sound cocky or anything. But seriously, the one who likes DBSK likes SHINee and Fly to the Sky better and the other friend loves DBSK’s music but doesn’t really know much about them personality and life-wise), but they’re fans nonetheless, so they were jealous, hehehe 🙂
He gave me the Version C poster from the MIROTIC album. I was probably blushing so much from the shock XD I guess he knew I was a fan since I bought one of their albums from Japan while in Korea. Plus, I might have fangirled just a tinsy winsy bit too much when I saw the shelf full of DBSK albums ^^;;; But OMG, I’m still soooo glad I bought the album there!!! I’m not going to use the poster yet since I’m moving soon, but once I go to the new house, I’m definately hanging it up 😀 I have the Ver. B Mirotic poster already hanging in my room, but let me tell you, the Ver. C poster DEFINATELY blows it away. Ver. C poster is so beautiful and just WOOOOW *_* I was seriously thanking the elderly Korean man in both Korean and English A LOT.
