A few CrayonPop.me admins were in Las Vegas and managed to meet Crayon Pop for a short while before they went to prepare for their performance. We had handed their manager some snacks, including ramyeon to tide them over the next 4 days. One of the 2nd year anniversary message books was handed over too. We intend to hand the other copy to them again at the CrayonPop.me fanmeet on the July 22 officially.
After some time, Way and Choa came back from wherever they came from, and we greeted them briefly before they went up to their rooms. Geummi and Ellin came down later. We approached them and introduced ourselves. Geummi gave us CEO Hwang’s Soyul’s sausages, which we commented on. =)
Stay tuned for a food review of the sausages!
Choa and Way came down a while later. It should delight fans to know that CEO Hwang was filming them for Crayon Pop TV, which was also confirmed by Geummi. We took pictures with CEO Hwang too!
Finally when Soyul came down, they did some small chit chat while we stood in the background. (We might appear in it…and we did!)
They then proceeded to the performance venue with CEO Hwang recording throughout the walk there. He also took certain artistic shots of the signs on the way.
As fans who were in the pit, we feel like we should share what went on as part of the entire Crayon Pop experience.
A short video that showed Crayon Pop’s ‘viralness’ was aired on the screen, while they got to their positions. CEO Hwang and another Chrome staff were in front of the barrier (only staff access) recording the girls’ whole performance too. It can be seen in the fancam that CPSS will provide soon.
Due to the music being really loud, and with only 3 of us fan chanting, it was hard to get our voices heard. There are certain points in their songs where the music volume drops, such as Lonely Christmas where you are supposed to shout ‘Jom Ggu Ri Ggu Ri Hae’. Way heard it at that part and gave us a thumbs up!
There were other points where they could hear us, and they waved to us. Also, in the introduction for ‘Uh-ee’, Ellin would mention that ‘Uh-ee’ is a cheer to represent ‘oomph’, and say Fighting. Shouting ‘Hwaiting/Fighting’ along with her made her point to us and say ‘yes’. Also shouting terms like “____, Yeppoda” in between songs while the lights were off makes it pretty audible to them too.
After their performance, we waited outside for them. Geummi, through their translator, said, “thank you for your support”, and when asked if they heard our fanchants, replied with “yes, loudly and clearly”. We also got signatures and a group picture taken by their translator. We finally bade them farewell.
We also met Manager Suh and took a picture with him (finally!), he owed us one from KMF!
Overall, it was a great opportunity to interact with Crayon Pop and the Chrome staff, and it will be a cherished memory. CrayonPop.me staff will also be at both their LA concerts, so stay tuned!
