SHINee's succes in Japan

Okay, so SHINee made their Japanese debut a few days ago, and they are already doing AMAZINGLY WELL!

They placed 2nd on the Oricon chart on the release-day of their debut single, and they've placed 2nd on Oricon 4 days in a row now. They sold 50,000 copies the first day and they will probably place 2nd on Oricon weekly. They've sold 81.000 copies of the single in just 4 days. This is a great amount, considering it's their Japanese debut single.

Just to make a comparison, SNSD's debut sinlge sold 45.000 copies the first week, and placed 5th on the first day. They placed 4th on Oricon weekly.

Taking all this in, I get a good feeling about their future promotions in Japan. A lot of people have said that they see SHINee as DBSK's younger btothers, and I personally believe that SHINee can become as popular in Japan as DBSK are.

They've performed the Japanese version of Replay twice on TV now!

The full version at the VMAJ:

And a shorter version on Happy Music:

They've also been featured in A TON of magazines! And EMI Music is treating SHINee really well! I'm so proud of them!! <3<3<3

Paris Day 2 - Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower and ... SNSD?? [Long post]

The next day, of course, we had to do some sightseeing! This was probably the longest day of the trip, and we were SO tired, when we got back at the hotel room -.- Slept very well that night xD

We passed the Opera first, since we lived in the neighbourhood around the Opera and Gallerie Lafayette. It's very pretty!

After this we walked to The Louvre.

Oh look! It's the giant glass pyramide thingy O:
LOL sorry xD We actually planned on going into the Lovure since the weather was pretty bad that day, but we quickly decided not to, after seeing the huge line. It's a pity though, I really wanted to go inside. And GUESS WHAT! SHINee was actually at the Louvre the FREAKING SAME DAY AS ME, BUT JUST LATER. SHISUS, WHY YOU HATE ME?? >BC (Even though I found out that he actually loved me later that day)
So we decided to go to the Arc de Triomphe instead.

Ever since we arived in Paris, I've had this crave to eat crepes. It was just one of the things I absolutely HAD to do, while in Paris. So when we passed by a place that sold them, I was very happy.

But to my disappointment, they just tasted like regular pancakes xD But that didn't keep me from eating them all he time anyways (WHICH I DID BTW XD). And excactly what did I expect? I don't even know xD

On the way to Arc de Triomphe, we ended up on Champs-Élysées, so of course we had to do some shopping! I bought a pink blazer in ZARA, and after that we went to Sephora. I love Sephora! And I think I might just love it even more now, 'cause one of the best things in my life happened there. So you see ...

Hannah and I were walking around inside the store, and suddenly I see a group of Asian people. Of course I check them out, since I know that all the SM artists are in Paris at the moment, but I don't recognize anyone, so I just keep on looking at the make up. But after a little while I catch a glimpse of a girl that looks EXTREMELY MUCH as Yoona from SNSD, so I tell Hannah, and we both try to find her again. And a few moments later Hannah is like 'OH MY GOD ZARAH, IT IS YOONA! AND TAEYEON'. I look over to see Yoona and Taeyeon looking at some make-up, and I kind of freak out. I can feel my cheeks getting all red, and my heart starts beating faster. And incoherent fangirly rambling escapes my mouth. After I calmed down Hannah talks me into going over to them, so we did. And OMG I was so nervous talking to them! I didn't even dare to, but Hannah got their attention by simply saying 'Excuse me'. Both Taeyeon and Yoona looks at us. I try to keep my composure, and Hannah continues 'We're big fans! We're coming to see the concert on Friday!'. The both go 'Ooh' and seem very surprised and excited. OMG they are so pretty. They kindly smile to us, and Taeyeon looks me straight in the eyes while waving to me. OMG SHE'S SO PRETTY AND CUTE, AND I CAN'T BELIVE I JUST MADE MY ULTIMATE FAVORITE GIRL SINGER.

My mom is an awesome paparazzi BD

And after this Hannah and I was high the rest of the day, and even more excited about the concert!

Some walking, some walking and some more walking, and we're finally at the Arc de Triomphe!

To be honest, I wasn't really that excited about seing this. It's cool and all, but I was looking more forward to see the Eiffel Tower, which was where we went to next.

My mom, my sisters and I

The Eiffel Tower was very impressive to see! It's so huge xD But again, we didn't get up because of the long line. *Sigh* I really wanted to go! >BC
After this, we walked home. And just to let you know, I don't think I've been walking this much in one day before. Or in 5 days, EVER! I was soooo tired, when we got back at the hotel xD But Hannah and I were all excited and hyper for the next day, since that was, when the concert was!

- Okay! End of this mega long post xDD

Paris Day 1 - Day of arrival

So here's the first post about my trip in Paris!!

We left our apartment around noon and went to the airport. I was really excited! Never been to Paris before, so I was so sure this was going to be an awesome trip!

See how excited I am BD

But of course there were some complications, and we couldn't print out our boarding passes at the fancy machines in the airport, but we got the problem solved, and then we just had to wait.

Chillin' like a boss BD

Hannah and I on the plane:

This was her first time flying since she was 3 years old, so she was really excited! It was a pretty short flight, and we arrived at the airport around 6PM. Then we had to take a bus to get into centrum, and then we had to walk around 20 minutes before we got to our hotel. We went out to eat dinner at this cute little cafe, and after that we went to a grocery store to buy snacks and stuff xD

I found white chocolate covered Oreos! *O* I freaking LOVE them! And you can't get them in Denmark. I also bought that little cute pink Cola Light bottle. Karl Lagerfeld designed it, but of course I forgot to bring it home -.- I didn't even get to drink it!! >BC

Later that night Hannah, our mom and I had a little walk around the neighbourhood, just to see our surroundings.

Ooooh the French subway BD

At around 10PM we went back to our hotel, and just chilled in our hotel room. Hannah and I had a lot of fun 'dubbing' the French television. And talking about dubbing, I got so tired of watching TV in France. They dub EVERYTHING! XD

So, that was my first day in Paris! It's a really beautiful city btw! :D

Epic can't even describe it

So, I'm home from Paris, and it was an amazing trip!
We saw so many monuments and places, and then there was the concert as well of course!

I will do some better and more coherent posts about the trip, but now I just want to say that Friday June 10th 2011 was the best day of my life!

I saw SHINee in real life, and I never thought that I would! T___T <3

Buuuut, longer and better posts, coming up! Just need to put the pictures on my computer xD

Paris, here I come!

I'm leaving for Paris in a few hours, so I thought that should be time enough to do a quick post!

I'm so freaking excited! :D And even more now, since I found out that SHINee is arriving today as well, in the same airport AT THE SAME TIME! Both SHINee and I will be in Paris at around 6PM tonight, so I might see them in the airport!

And I know what they are wearing as well, so I have something to look after (as if I wouldn't recognize them right away anyways)

They look so stylish!! *O* I tried to coordinate my outfit, so that it would look good with Key's xD

Anyways, I'll see you in 5 days sweetie!
Au revoir ~

4 days to go!!

OMG 4 days, and I'm on my way to Paris! :D
I'm so exited!! I can't wait! I've never been to Paris before, so I'm really looking forward to see the city! And of course the SM Town Live concert! That's probably the thing I'm looking most forward to. Okay ... not probably, it IS what I'm looking most forward to!

I was skyping with Celia and Line yesterday while watching some fancams of Key, and I suddenly started crying, because I was thinking 'Only 7 days, and I'll see Key and SHINee in real life'. I honestly surprised myself. I'm a 100% sure, that I'll start crying at the concert though, but I didn't expect it yesterday xD

For soemthing a bit different, The pilot episode of Immortal Song 2 aired today! I've been really exited about this show! And , just as I thought, Jonghyun did an AMAZING job! His first performance was breathtaking, but this one was, hands down, one of the best performances I have EVER seen:

When I first watched it, I was speechless. It gave me goosebumps all over my body and it actually made me cry too. I was simply blown away. It's amazing how he's emoting, while singing this song! Even though I don't know, what the song is about, he still got to me and made me cry, because of the way he sang it, and because of his whole appearance, while singing. This was beautiful, breathtaking, amazing, marvelous and fenomenal!
I'm currently looking for the mp3 like crazy! It's just stunning!

Well, enough about how SHINee makes me cry all the time xD I got a new haircut! I'll show you in my next post!! See ya BD <3
