It’s been so long time since I posted something here.
Today, I decided to talk about Han Geng fans in Korea.
Thanks to Mandy, I realized that there is no secret among Han Geng fan family around the world. So I felt obligated to let you know what’s going on among Korean fans who support Han Geng after he left the Korean entertainment industry.
1. Opening a new Han Geng fan forum this summer
We used to have these two Han Geng fan sites in Korea, which were very famous among Han Geng fans. However, at this point, these two fan sites are temporary closed. Even before these two sites were closed, some of us started thinking about a new fan site that openly and actively supports Han Geng. There have been so many misunderstandings and rumors about Han Geng, so we felt fans should step out and take actions to clear up those mess.
Thus, dozen of Korean fans made a fan cafe where we can prepare to launch a new fan site. Currently we are discussing many things: the fan site title, memberships, the hosting server, design, moderators… and so on.
If you come across this address, please keep it in mind that the number of members, 22 people are those who decided to get actively involved in creating a fan site, not just Han Geng fans :).
Thanks to Si Woo’s help, we were able to send a standing wreath to My Kingdom press conference.
It says in Korean: “We wish you shine brightly.”
Han Geng must have been very touched by all those support from the international fans including Korean fans. He finally mentioned us in his weibo 🙂
2. Nike’s special project: “We will wait for you!”
Last time I introduced one lucky Korean fan, Nike, who met Han Geng at the show, at our blog.
A month ago, Nike started a special project for Han Geng and called for a video clip from Korean fans who support Han Geng and wait him to return to Korea for his own concert or show ( I have to emphasize that HIS OWN CONCERT or SHOW again).
So far a total of 91 Korean fans have sent her video clips. As soon as she finishes the editing job, the final product will be released through YouTube and other fan sites. So.. please get ready to be excited, you will see 91 fans including me in there ( as long as you can figure out who is me among 91 fans, ha ha..)
3. International fans, the Korean fans
Before we Korean fans got used to being “Korean” fans: very privileged fan dome since Han Geng was part of Super Junior and an artist of the SME, where Korean is spoken and Korean culture is the main culture. But now things changed for Han Geng fans in Korea.
We are not anymore privileged or special as fans.
Now, we are as same as other international fans who are not familiar with Chinese language or Chinese entertainment industry.
From now on, we have to get used to being called as Han Geng’s international fans, rather than his “Korean” fans.
So we became very humble but also more dedicated as geng fans.
