Following yesterday’s release of SNSD Seohyun’s diary from Paris, the group’s maknae unveiled another entry that looks to be written on the day of the “SM Town Live in Paris” concert!
Here’s the full translation:
Finally today’s the day! It’s not SNSD’s solo concert, but a concert by “SM TOWN.” Because of that, I was happy to see a lot of people I haven’t seen in a long time. A lot of these sunbaes and hoobaes (seniors and juniors) are busy with their respective schedules, but to see them again felt really “GOOD.”
And then the SM TOWN rehearsals! We said hi to each other, asked how other artists were doing. But it felt extra good that we all came to a foreign country to hold a concert together. Especially, each group put on uniquely different performances, so we were able to point out each other’s strengths and weaknesses…I think it was a good way to study and learn more, which made this concert all the more meaningful.
We had a variety of special performances… my stage was a duet song with Super Junior’s Kyu Hyun. I was super nervous, but it still felt great. The duet song of “Way Back Into Love” with Kyu Hyun sunbae made my Paris concert much more special. Because it’s my first concert in Paris, I really wanted to give an unforgettable performance.
Kyu Hyun sunbae’s sweet and soft voice is just unbelievable. Of course, he’s a great signer too. Honestly, that kind of made me feel more pressure. But when I got on stage, I felt so much at ease and good, because I could tell Kyu Hyun was really trying hard to adjust to myself. Looking back, I feel more thankful for that. If it weren’t for Kyu Hyun, it would have been a lot harder for me to sing on that stage. I really appreciate it.
Finally SNSD’s performance! During the duet song with Kyu Hyun, I was so caught with the song, I didn’t really get a chance to see the audience. But during our performance, I was able to better notice each fan in the crowd. And I couldn’t be more surprised! Everyone was European, in fashionable styles. At first glance, I could tell the whole crowd was full of not just French people, but Europeans from all across the region.
And to see them sing along our songs in Korean brought tears to my eyes. It was a different feeling than what I felt in countries like Japan, China, or other Southeast Asian countries. I was just so emotionally touched by them, my heart just kept on pounding.
I mean I was seeing something that I’ve never seen before in my life. Their different faces and expressions are still vividly clear in my mind. Their cheers and smiles, and for giving us a standing ovation, I was just so emotionally overwhelmed, and I just kept repeating to myself, “We are Korean singers, SNSD.”
As we performed our hit songs including, “Run Devil Run,” “Genie,” “Gee,” and “Kissing You,” I could feel us getting a lot closer to the audience. We greeted the fans with our clumsy French, and the crowd responded back in Korean, and just like that the concert headed to the climax. Through music we became one and shared the time of our lives heart to heart together.
