For the second time in more than a month, I met Jeongwon, Jang, Kenji, Daisuke, Yheen, Kiro and Sky.
Meeting Down To Mars last Tuesday night was unplanned. It just so happened that my schedule was adjusted in which I did not let go of the opportunity to see Down To Mars otherwise, there will be no other chance.
Seeing them again, I feel more relax though still a bit shy. I managed to talked to all especially to Jeongwon and Jang but was particularly happy about Daisuke and Yheen because I was able to get a little convo with them as well. Well, Sky, Kenji and Kiro I did manage to talk to them as well but not as much as the rest. But among the members, I think that Kiro is really shy and is the type of person who would not start a convo with anyone unless you start.
But hey, these guys I think are just the sweetest and could just really make any lady's knees turn into a Jell-O. No wonder fans get giddy with them whenever there is a meet up every after Party Pilipinas.
With that, let me segue to the live recording.
The segment in which Down To Mars started recording for the Rhythm N Boys segment I think already started past 10PM. Before that when I was talking to Yheen and Daisuke on our way back to the studio, I asked if their fans are still inside the studio and they said yes. I was amazed with the patience and dedication of their fans. I believe they were at the studio early to give their support not knowing what time their idols will start recording.
As we went to watch the recording, true enough Marsians are still around. They're now seated at the left side (facing the stage).
Before Down To Mars went on stage, I witnessed how they interacted with their fans. It was an endearing scene for me, because I have been a fangirl myself especially whenever I go to Seoul and watch the recording of my favorite idols in Inkigayo, Music Bank, Music Core and M Countdown. Just like here, we go to the studio without any idea what time the recording will start. All tiredness will only be gone once we see our idols on stage and they would interact with us by giving extra fan service such as talking to the fans through the microphone or giving cute expressions. The only difference is that, here, idols can really mingle with the fans. There is no manager or bodyguards that would stop them from going near their fans.
Just as I mentioned earlier, when Down to Mars came to the studio, they met their fans below the stage and had an interaction with them before finally getting on stage. The fan service they did surely made all those who stayed happy and giddy. I think that they've just given them the energy to loudly cheer for them.
On stage, their fan service did not end as I frequently see Jeongwon, talking to fans and giving extra fan service. Really so adorable and I like it much. The kind of manner that your idol give you only goes to say the he is concerned and very much appreciates the kind of support that you give.
Btw, before the Rhythm N Boys recording, I've asked several times how their fans are since they've been in GMA much earlier and all of them are very much concerned about them and very much grateful for staying late. With that, I know that their big hearts go to each of the their fans.
As I witnessed the support and dedication of their fans and Down To Mars concern to their Marsians as well as Down To Mars has given me so much fun and excitement since I decided to come out and declare that I like them (yeah coming out in the open ^^) , I decided to instead give the two signed cds of Down To Mars to the FIRST TWO FANS (better if they do not still have signed cd of DTM) who will email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me SEVEN REASONS why they like Down To Mars.
Oh, the 2 cds which I have are actually to be sent to friends abroad but I will just deferred and send them their copy when I got another chance with Down To Mars.
I am doing this because I am just too happy and just want to share the luck that I have because I have seen and talked all Down To Mars members. Yeah, call me shallow (I am really one anyway ^_^) but I am a Scorpion and cannot help but have a strong passion about everything especially those that makes me happy.
Oh geez, this post is supposed to be just a Christmas greeting for Down To Mars but I ended up writing quite a long post again. But what did I just say, I am happy ^_^ and who wouldn't when you get to meet these guys in person whose cuteness and charms as well as their talent are just some of the things that make them so adorable. ^_^
Now let me write this...
I wonder what I have done to get lucky this Christmas. What have I done to deserve all these. Sa lagay na eto I am still in your list. Thanks much for the wonderful pressies of meeting and interacting with them.
Following are photos taken after the recording of Party Pilipinas WISH. We waited for them since I have to get the cds that I asked them to sign in which I am giving out in this post.
The cap that Yheen is wearing was designed by himself.
It's really nicely designed. This guy has really a talent in designing accessories.
Thanks for telling us about your design project.
I just realized that I did not have a solo photo of Daisuke. ^_^
Glad that Sky is already doing well. Better take care of yourself, Sky.
Oh this lad is just so cute. I like some of his 'hirit' over at Twitter.
And, I just have to laugh whenever I remember him going back
to the dressing room sweating. He said that he just ate. Cute Dais!
Geez, I kind of look like such a fan girl with Down To Mars album in hand (blush).
Wacky one in which I told them that even if they look foolish they still all are looking good.
Looking at the whacky photo again, I just cannot help but laugh out loud when I remember how Daisuke look like when he showed me another whacky face. ^_^ lol!
On our way down, I had a chance to have another photo with Jeongwon. Hee, thanks to my friend for suggesting it. Love it!
Outside the studio Down To Mars headed to their fans waiting for them (it's almost 11PM if I am not mistaken). They have a mini meet and greet in which I am certain will make everyone who waited for them very happy. Hee, I remember what Jeongwon promised that he will give a hug. Did he? With that, we left them surrounded by their loving fans.
Inside my car, I cannot help but tell my friend that the nice scents of Down To Mars is lingering. Hee, until Starbucks to home, I still can smell them. ^_^ Nice!
It's Christmas eve now and with that, I wish Down To Mars a very MERRY CHRISTMAS. Have a great holidays with your love ones.
