Yoo Ah In to Hold An Exclusive Birthday Fanmeet in October
Yes, SIKseekers! Finally after 3 years Master Sik is going to hold a fan meeting again! This time the fan meeting is held to celebrate his birthday too.
But good news always comes with a not so good news. The good news is: this is a FREE fan meeting, no charges at all. The not so good news is: it’s an exclusive fan meeting, which means only selected people from Ainese (Yoo Ah In’s Korean fans club) get the chance to attend the event. Here’s more detail~
The fan meeting will be scheduled prior to his birthday on October 5, 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm (about 3 hours). The event will take place at Seoul White Hall Art Center, and is designed only for 466 people from Ainese fans club.
Ainese has announced this fan meeting event in their website and upgraded the new member’s registration conditions too. I sort of understand their policy. Since this is a free fan meeting, they have to narrow down the participants and prioritize their own old members. On the downside, there’s a slim chance for overseas fans to participate, unless you speak Korean. [But imagine the local fans’ feeling on the tough chance, though]
However, since some SIKseekers have been asking me about how to participate, here are some details~
First of all you must have a Daum account (register to Daum) to become the Official Member at Ainese Fancafe. In the process of the registration you have to register with your real name and submit your real documents, such as passport or identity card. Ainese will approve you for their official membership after verifying all the documents.
After you get the confirmation of the official member and can enter the forum/cafe, the next step is to become the Associate Member or Full Member. An official member should first leave at least 20 messages or posts in the fancafe before applying for the associate membership, but spamming is prohibited. They have forum posting rules just like other international forums do.
There’s a message version of application for full membership~ the content of the message is: name / email address / lists more than two Yoo Ah In’s past works. Then you can become a full member.
The application for full membership/associate membership starts from 12:30 pm on September 2 to 4 September 24:00 (September 5th 12am).
And the next step is to win the free ticket to the fan meeting through a lottery 🙂
Whew! There’s a whole lot of process, but worth trying if you can speak Korean in the forum.
Yoo Ah In’s last Birthday Fan Meeting was held in 2011 and it was full of surprise, such as a secret guest Song Joong Ki that startled all people (especially Sik!), and Yoo Ah In’s belting out some songs. Check the pictures and video here.
This year’s birthday fan meeting could be Yoo Ah In’s last fan meeting before he enlists for active duty next year. So let’s hope he will get lotsa of lurvee and warm heart from his fans!
