Taiwanese fan spends half her monthly earnings to watch SHINee perform in Korea
An avid fan of SHINee‘s Taemin guest-featured on the most recent broadcast of ‘Hello‘.
KBS 2TV‘s ’Hello’ invites everyday citizens to appear on the show to share their concerns, and most recently, a SHINee fan from Taiwan made an appearance to share her own personal dilemma.
Taiwanese guest Sa Hwa Sun who impressed the audience with her fluent Korean remarked, “I am a fan of SHINee, but SHINee has so many different activities,” admitting that she was using up her entire savings to travel and watch each of SHINee’s performances.
Sa Hwa Sun who teaches Chinese at a Taiwanese Junior High School visits Korea at least twice a month to see SHINee, and revealed that she has spent a large sum of money on plane tickets alone. She makes roughly around $1,200 a month, and spends half of her earnings to attend SHINee performances. She has purchased 30 copies of SHINee’s new album ‘Sherlock‘, and is also working part time at a private educational institute in the evenings.
Aside from her financial dilemma, she isn’t even able to publicly admit her love for SHINee to her students. She risked being fired from her job at the school to attend the show that day.
Still, she could not stop gushing about SHINee. “The SHINee members are like little brothers to me,” she said. “They are adorable. They’re more beautiful than women, but they are so charismatic at the same time.”
Sa Hwa Sun has also spent all the money she has been saving to get married. “I don’t think I’ll be able to get married, as my standards are too high now after seeing SHINee.” She also remarked that Taemin could not get married, as he is the love icon for many women out there. “Taemin cannot get married,” she said flatly, surprising everyone on set.
Sa Hwa Sun also revealed that she had once gifted Taemin with a black sweater, and Taemin suddenly remarked, “Oh, the black one. I think I’m actually wearing it today.”
“I was organizing my closet, and this one just stood out to me,” Taemin said. “I wore it today for the first time in a long time.” The sweater was surprisingly the exact sweater Sa Hwa Sun had given him.
The MCs revealed that the sweater was completely coincidental, explaining, “The SHINee members came to film today without knowing what kind of dilemmas the guests would be sharing on the show, and Taemin just happened to wear the sweater,” displaying their own shock.
