SM TOWN IN PERU – Let’s go on a trip (2nd Fan meeting)
Place: Concha Acustica del Campo de Marte – Jesus Maria District
12:30 pm, part of the staff of SM TOWN IN PERU arrived to Concha Acustica del Campo de Marte to begin with the preparations of the event to be held at 3pm. Right after that, the music system (equipment) arrived.
1:00pm, Mr. Victoriano Chavez, sub-manager of the Show Business Area of Jesus Maria City Hall and a member of National Security arrived to supervised the progress of the upcoming event.
To our surprise, even two hours before the event started, people began to arrive, so we decided to line them up outside the place so they could enter in order.
We hired some members of the Jesus Maria Police Station to be in charge of the security of the event. They arrived about 2 pm
At the entrance, our staff members welcomed the people who arrived. They were in charge of giving the printed schedule for that day as well as the ticket for the general free draw. We also gave away 800 uchiwas and 2000 ramen soups, a special donation made by Mr. Dong and Mrs. Han Sun Hee respectively.
1:30pm Mr. Vicotriano told us that the entrance line was way too long, so it was time to make the people go inside the place. So at 1:45pm people began to go inside Concha Acustica. The 2000 were all given away before 3:30pm.
Inside the auditorium we had set a table to gather signs for an especial CONCERT PETITION. We printed a thousand copies and all of them were signed (we’re planning to continue this project as many people didn’t get to sign).
We also set a place for the important people who were going to attend the event, such as people from the Korean Embassy.
Next to the main stage, the banners of the fan clubs of all the Korean agencies were set, as we wanted to show that Peru loves every single Korean singer and actor.
There was also a table that was provided of special Korean food such as kimbap, which was sold at its price cost.
The schedule for the event was very well planned, so at 1pm the dance groups began to arrive with their staff to make themselves ready to perform at 4pm.
2:40pm members of International Youth Foundation (IYF) arrived with their dancers and some other members of that organization, among them were the main Shepherd and his wife.
3:00pm people were still arriving, so the show started at 3:20pm sharp. On the stage, all the banners from SM Entertainment artists were set.
Our staff was ready to do their best.
We had people in charge of the live broadcasting via twitter (Nathy from SHINee Peru and Pamis from TVXQ Peru)
People in charge of the recording (Sonia from Kasoo Store)
And a professional photographer in charge of taking the best pictures (Pedro Ricardo)
3:20pm the show began. The MCing was in charge of Rosa y Rossana from SHINee Peru.
We began with the CULTURAL HOUR, in which we had members of the Agency of International Cooperation of Korea (KOICA) who explained about the traditional Korean cloth, the Hanbok and who also explained about the Korean traditions.
After that, there was an especial presentation of the Peruvian Federation of Taekwondo, who taught us about this art.
Finally, members of International Youth Foundation (IYF) made an especial number followed by some words of Mr. Victor Vela, a representative of IYF. They finished with a traditional Korean dance..
The Schedule continued, always expressing our gratitude to the people and institution who supported us..
4:00pm SM TOWN IN PERU HOUR began. We started off with the introduction of the leaders of the SM fans clubs in Peru, who thanked the audience for their support..
We prepared especial presentations of dance groups who performed the following songs:
- Super Junior’s Bonamana
- SNSD’s Oh!
- TVXQ’s Keep your head down
- F(x)’s Danger
- SHINee’s Lucifer
All the people sang along also chorusing the fanchants.
Then, our main Project was to dance SM’s Let’s go on a trip, so all the members of the dance groups simulated to be the real artists and made the audience dance along.
After this, we took our time to make an especial demonstration of our gratitude to the two Korean institutions who gave us all their support, KBS World Radio and Seoul International Drama Awards.
Finally, SM TOWN HOUR was closed with the presentation of the song Star Star Star of SNSD.
5:00pm K-POP HOUR started with the presentation of dance groups who performed 2PM’s and Teen Top’s songs.
Before the event got to the end, we started the free draw of OST, dvs and books donated by KBS World Radio and Seoul International Drama Awards, as well as some products donated by the Korean Embassy in Peru.
The event finished with the participation of almost FOUR THOUSAND PEOPLE (4000), number that was confirmed by the members of the City hall and the members of our staff who were at the entrance at all time.
