How to get to HoWon Art Hall for Kyu Jong's Fan Meeting on Feb. 14

One of my dear friends asked me to show the way to HoWon Art Hall so I thought I'd better share the map with you girls who will come to Kyu's fan meeting next month.
You have two choices to get to the venue by subway.
One is taking Line No. 8 and the other one is taking Line No. 5.
If you take line No. 8, you have to take a bus after getting off the subway.
I can't tell which one is better. It will depend on the location of your hotel.
Here is the map I noted the direction for my overseas friends.
I hope it will be useful for you.

Kyu Jong was in Venezuelan Newspapar on Jan. 12, 2013.

Hi~ everyone! It's been a long time.
How are things going on girls? ^^

Well, some people might hear the news already through twitter last week, our precious boy Kyu Jong was introduced as a K-pop star in Venezuelan Newspaper on Jan. 12, 2013.
I was really curious what they said about him cause the article was written in Spanish.
Then I strongly wanted to have the real newspaper as soon as I saw the photo of that page.
And....one kind girl from Venezuela helped me out. So touching!

Huge Huge thanks to Tatiana from Venezuela for sending me the real newspaper & English translation by post. I know it would've been very troublesome for her. ThanKYU ThanKYU. It was delivered to me much faster than I expected.

Actually, I tried to find the PDF file or scanned image of the page of the newspaper to get the much clear report to share with you but couldn't make it. So I scanned it by myself.
I feel sorry for poor quality of the scanning. Mine is not good. lol
Somehow, I hope more and more Venezuelan will get to know Kyu Jong & SS501 further.

Let's wait for Kyu Jong till he comes back to us safely and also hope all our boys will be happy and healthy in 2013.

** After posting this page, Tatiana sent me an email for revising the credit of translation.
Thanks to Lisbett who helped with it for Tatiana and me.

Please give a proper credit when you repost it.

Scanned Images of Kyu Jong's 2nd Mini Album.

First of all, I'm very sorry for poor quality of scanning.
I hope someone will scan with better quality later.
I just want to share these images for my overseas friends who are really curious of what's inside of album.
The CD which has its own number (the first time to release) is a limited edition of Meet Me Again.
I wanted to get No. 501 or No. 224. But... can you find the numbering on the below image? T.T.
All serial numbers are inside of album, so we don't know who has a lucky number.
That depends on your luck. ^^
I realy envy someone who will get No. 501 or 224.

My precious one Kyu Jong.
Really ThanKYU.
You are my One Luv. ^^
규종아. 소중한 음반 정말 고마워.
