I would like this article, which gives quite a detailed account of the press conference, to be my last post wrapping up the entire event, so that I don’t continue to blog bits and pieces of news. Also, I added from many sources various video clips and also some pictures that Sukbar eels touched up themselves, so that these pics are of higher resolution than what the Japanese media released. In fact, some Sukbar eels are grumbling about why Japan, being reputed as the maker of cameras, are releasing media photographs which are not of high resolution (haha~).
Apologies in advance if I’m not able to give proper credits (they’re all from various eels in Sukbar) due to the length of the post and well, I get confused sometimes taking from various sources. Anyway, just to say that I’m very thankful to various sources for providing the information and the lovely pics. If I duplicate any pic or video, sorry. Am getting tired after a long day and my mind’s not focusing …
I do have some thoughts arising from the article, but let’s discuss them later, shall we? 🙂

Before the start of the event, many groups of fans waited along the road, with the majority of the fans carrying placards and props in support of Jang Keun Suk. Upon questioning, the reporter found out that these fans did not get the ticket and specially came to catch a glimpse of their idol. It was estimated that there were 4,000 fans waiting outside.
