[blog] three’s a charm: the fangirl list

So apparently, it’s my third year on wordpress though I started blogging on Blogger in 2001 and moved to vox until it closed down.

So in honor of my third year here, I decided to do an All-Asian Fangirl-Related “List of Threes”:

Films:

  • My Sassy Girl
  • Infernal Affairs
  • The Classic

Dramas:

  • Meteor Garden
  • Lucky Seven
  • Heartstrings

Fandoms:

  • F4
  • Arashi
  • CNBLUE

Singers

  • Jay Chou
  • Della Ding
  • Jung Yonghwa

Actors

  • Fujiki Naohito
  • Eita
  • Odagiri Joe

Actresses

  • Ueno Juri
  • Ayase Haruka
  • Jun Ji-hyun

Craziest things I’ve done as a fangirl:

  • Give my only free ticket to an F2 (Van Ness Wu and Ken Zhu) concert to a friend because neither was my F1, then stay outside the concert venue the whole time waiting for my friend.
  • Usurp airport coverage just to see the other F2: Jerry Yan and Vic Zhou.
  • Ship.

(I won’t include stalking a Western boy band since this is an all-Asian list but yes, been there, done that.)

Ships:

  • RM
  • Sakumoto
  • Phillip & Margiela

Arashi Songs:

  • A.Ra.Shi
  • Subarashiki Sekai
  • 5×10

CNBLUE Songs:

  • Hey You
  • Teardrops In The Rain
  • Let’s Go Crazy

(Let’s Go Crazy was one of the first songs I heard from the band so it has a special place.)

Boy crush:

  • Kimura Takuya
  • Jo In-sung
  • Won Bin

Girl crush:

  • Park Shinhye
  • Song Hye-kyo
  • Kiko Mizuhara

Important Lessons I’ve Learned As A Fangirl:

  • You’re never alone through the ups and downs
  • It’s expensive
  • Fangirling is a choice, craziness is an option

Priceless Things That Fangirling Gave Me:

  • Friends
  • Happiness
  • Entertainment (certified stress-buster)

Fans I Can’t Stand:

  • Stans
  • Sasaengs
  • Super delusional shippers

(Yes, there is apparently a difference between stans and sasaengs according to this.)

What I Can’t Stand In Any Fandom:

  • Fanwars
  • Uber obsession with idols like they own them
  • Putting idols on a pedestal as if they are gods (as a colleague would say: “chill, it’s just an idol“)

Fangirl Dreams:

  • Watch an Arashi concert live
  • Watch an Arashi concert live
  • Watch an Arashi concert live

(Because all other fangirl dreams are possible. But my dream to watch them at Kokuritsu is no longer possible until 2020, that is; and this dream will only be possible if they do an Asian tour because in Japan, I have to compete with 1.6 million other fans.)

  1. jo in sung & song hye kyo! i dont ship real life but given enough fuel for this pair… i might have made an exception lol. too bad JIS fell in love with someone else. (jeez! see, im affected already lol)

    craziest thing im still doing (u know this!): stalking J like crazy… need to know whats up with him privately when i didnt even stalk my ex or my hubby haha… i could proudly say that my hubby’s knowledge of jun/arashi is the same level as that of a fangirl coz i just couldnt shut up lol.

    • did you watch THAT WINTER THE WIND BLOWS of JIS and SHK???

      girl, your way of stalking is tamed compared to the stalking I have seen. so… you’re still in the sane level don’t worry. although if this keeps up, I don’t know if we’d remain crazy with the way Shuukan Josei and all those tabloids aim to drive fans crazy and sales up lol

      oh heard that last night’s SHIYAGARE fueled some delusions from that side of the fandom again. you know what I mean lol

      • i did! twice! one raw coz i cant wait for the subs then subbed version lol.

        i stalk for info not for delusions haha… i just want to be informed lol.
        oh yes! coz of same things that happened in hawaii during the oguri wedding lol.
        SJ is coming up with sth again… let’s see how informative it is hahaha.

      • i did! twice! one raw coz i cant wait for the subs then subbed version lol.

        i stalk for info not for delusions haha… i just want to be informed lol.
        oh yes! coz of same things in the proposal that happened in hawaii during the oguri wedding lol.
        SJ is coming up with sth again… havent seen legit leaks yet so im gonna pass on the discussion atm. let’s see how informative it is hahaha.

      • I’m curious about the Hawaii dates coz the Oguri wedding was on Jan 5. The entourage left for Hawaii on Jan 3. You mean they stayed there until Jan 9 coz that’s how the timeline goes according to the delusions. Doesn’t J have anything more important to do? Hahahaha

      • if you would believe that arashi fan who got an autograph from J dated Jan 9 then yes he was still there lol. celebrity guests said Jun booked a reception room around the 7th or 8th though… but i believe that’s in honor of the couple? well i dont know the deets to that party. coz those who were invited were mum about it (except haruna ai lol) and those who cant shut up about it were not even there hehe.

      • wait! im a dig my files haha. there was a pic! fans compared it to his other legit signature. choose your own adventure when it comes to believing these things lol. ill dm it when i find it lol

  2. That list of fangirl dreams though. Watching an Arashi Concert live certainly is a dream that is likely to be impossible for international fans. And now i shall wallow in a corner because of that realization.

  3. *throws confetti* congrats on reaching your pseudo-threeniversary! ^_^ The actors list – I totally approve haha. So many others too, but your last one is ah, sad. I hope it comes true for you though, despite the 1.6 million others to compete from o.o”
