Hello Buddies, I'm pretty new here to GFSquad, but I'm a veteran Buddy from Toronto, Canada. I would like to share my experiences with GFriend to all of you in hopes that you can one day do the same and live the ultimate dream! Please enjoy the many fan accounts that I have had throughout the year. ---- Pre KCON NY Its the morning of Thursday, June 22 and I still haven't decided if I was going to NYC or not for KCON. Throughout the morning I contemplate to myself, "Do I go for KCON? Will GFriend actually remember me from March?" As the afternoon swiftly approaches I decide to myself, why not? YOLO! Who knows when the next time I see GFriend will be. Time to quickly gather my belongings (Yugu Bong in check) and before I know it, I'm off to the airport. ---- 17.06.23 @KCON NY I'm at KCON NY in Newark, NJ (Not New York!) and the sun is beating hot. My friends were off to JFK to meet TWICE's airplane while I on the other hand was there to only see GFriend. With my concert ticket and hi touch pass in hand, I was ready for an absolute fantastic day with GFriend. I was even wearing the same outfit from the Ilsan Fansign on 170311 from top to bottom. Am I ready to meet GFriend again? Totally! Yugu Bong ✔️ Navillera Cheer Banner ✔️ Canada Fan Meet Banner ✔️ Dear Buddy in Seoul Banner ✔ ---- Fan Engagement Interview & Game 1:30PM rolls around and I figure its time to line up for the Hi Touch with GFriend. I know tons of fans have already lined up, but I don't want to be at the very front (or first in line for hi touch at least). I head inside the venue just before the Audience pass holders were let in. It wasn't too bad, I was in the 4th or 5th row from the stage. Around me were fans from all around the eastern states and even a couple of faces I had recognized from Toronto. Chatting and mingling were cut short as the fan engagement started promptly at the advertised time. Walking onto the stage to their latest release "Fingertip", GFriend graced the stage in stunning black outfits. Minus Yerin, fans were treated to an interview and game session which was translated to English. GFRIEND Playing Charades at Fan Engagement Interview ---- Fan Engagement - Hi Touch With the fan engagement coming to a close, only the Hi Touch remained. Hi Touch ticket holders were called to stage for their opportunity to meet GFriend. Knowing I did not want to go first (I wanted to be last to maximize time with the memebers). I went straight up to the stage (with yugu bong & navillera banner) and started the fanchants to "Fingertip". Another Buddy decided he wanted in on this experience and joined me soon afterwards. We had caught the attention of GFriend, KCon staff and even Source Music staff who had then started recording us. Were we going to be on KCON TV or the next GFriend Special Clips video? More than likely! The end of the line was coming to an end and KCon staffed had still noticed me fanchanting so they had made a final call announcement. That was the signal for me to go up and I was literally the second to last person to go up. I proceed up on stage with a gap in between me and the preceding fan. I proceeded to high five and say hello to Yuju, then onto Umji, nothing irregular. Then it changed when I got to SinB!! As I approach SinB she squints her eyes and then opens them wide smiling happily and saying "I KNOW YOU!". Holy smokes, that was so weird..... SinB spoke to me in English (which she never did until this past March). I was more surprised of the fact that she spoke to me in English (Wait we are in the US... DUHH!?) rather than in Korean as usual. Stunned, shocked, and happy.. SinB ended up delaying the girl behind me as she wanted to talk to me. (LOL) Too bad we didn't have time to talk like at fansigns, however this was a hi touch, not a fansign. As I approached Eunha, I felt a similar vibe of happiness and her remembering me. (Eunha has had a long track of remembering me since Rough comeback.) I don't know what I did one time, but I have a feeling Eunha will always remember me. Damn the feelings right then were so amazing, however I was soon told by Source Music fan managers to move along (in Korean). While I was taking my time with SinB and Eunha, the preceding fan was able to grab a hug with Sowon, I just went for my normal high five as I did not want to delay the rest of the fan engagement any longer. I definitely took way too much time on that stage.. LOL ---- Thank you all for reading, I hope to share my other experiences with GFriend to you. Don't hesitate to ask me any questions.
