[FAN ACC] Lay Pre-debut Story Part 3 : Merayakan Ulang Tahun Lay Bersama

 

Ini adalah Fan Account dari staff baidu bar zhangyixing yang sedang belajar di Korea dan merupakan orang terdepan yang memberikan Lay hadiah dan kue ulang tahun
Ketika turun dari taksi, itu sudah pukul 9.48 malam (seharusnya mereka bertemu pukul 9). Hanya 3 orang yang menunggu para artis diluar gedung SM. Berharap mungkin Lay masih berlatih, aku duduk di sisi lain gedung SM sambil menunggu. Tiba-tiba ada seorang perempuan datan dan bertanya dengan bahasa Cina “Aku lihat kamu memegang kue, apakah kamu juga menunggu Lay?” Aku berkata ya. Lalu kami menunggu bersama dan mengobrol bagaimana kami menjadi fans Lay. Aku sangat iri padanya, ia berkata kalau ia sudah mulai suka dengan Lay ketika ia sedang menunggu artis-artis lain. Ia sering datang kesini, terakhir ia melihat Lay 3 bulan yang lalu. Ia bertanya padaku berapa lama aku sudah mengenal Lay, merasa malu, aku bilang padanya kalau walaupun aku berhubungan dengannya  dengan menjadi staff di forum, aku belum melihatnya secara langsung, dan ia juga tidak tahu siapa aku.

 

Sudah 10.30 malam, seorang lelaki keluar dari pintu belakang SM. Lay? Ia melihat kami dan tersenyum, aku tahu itu adalah Lay. Agar menarik perhatian Lay, aku mulai berbicara dengan logat Changsha, Lay terlihat senang “Ah, logat kotaku. Aku sangat senang dapat mendengar itu di Korea.” Lalu ia berkata kalau hadiah-hadiah dan kuenya terlalu berat untuk kami bawa jadi ia akan membawanya. Ia pertama membantu membawa hadiah perempuan itu, lalu membawa punyaku. Ia tetap mengulang-ulang kata-kata berterimakasih, dan bercanda kalau ia khawatir ia tidak bisa memakan kuenya, tetapi ia tak menyangka kalau ia akan menerima 2 kue hari ini. Lalu kami mulai mengobrol.

Lay: “Sudah berapa lama sejak terakhir aku melihatmu? Sebulan? 2 bulan?”

Fans: “Tidak, sudah 3 bulan.”

Lay: “Benarkah, aku rasa itu tidak selama itu.”

Fans: “Ya, aku sudah berlibur selama 2 bulan, dan sekarang sudah sebulan menuju semester baru…”

Lay: “Aku datang pukul 9 malam di depan gedung, tetapi tidak ada orang disini, jadi kupikir kalian telat. Lalu aku menunggu 5 menit disana, juga aku ke pintu depan dan membukanya, lalu masih tidak ada orang disana, jadi aku kembali ke studio untuk latihan menari sebentar. Lalu aku keluar lagi dan masih tidak ada orang, jadi aku pergi. Setengah jalan pulang, aku khawatir kalau kalian mungkin saja datang telat dan bisa saja menungguku, jadi aku kembali lagi ke SM…”

Merasa malu, aku bilang padanya tentang masalahku dengan supir taxi yang tersasar, dan berkata “aiya, aku sangat malu…” Aku merasa karena aku tidak punya alasan lagi untuk melanjutkan pembicaraanku. Aku minta maaf sudah membuatmu khawatir, Lay.

Lay: “oke, ayo pergi ke toko terdekat, kita tidak bisa berdiri disini lama-lama…”

…..

Lalu kami mengobrol sambil berjalan ke sebuah toko di dekat gedung SM, dan naik ke balkom. Tangga menuju balkon sangat curam, Lay berjalan dibelakang kami, ketika kami naik tangga ia berulan-ulang bilang pada kami untuk hati-hati dan jangan jatuh. Aku mulai bicara padanya mengenai hal-hal yang sedang didiskusikan di forumnya. Ketika sedang menandatangani, Lay meminta maaf, “Tulisanku tidak begitu bagus. Aku tidak tahu bagaimana menulis yang baik, aku hanya tahu bagaimana menulis namaku.” Agar membuat ia tidak cemas akan tulisannya yang dikritik orang-orang, aku bercanda “Kami sudah sejak lama suka padamu, kami semya tau bagaimana tulisan kamu. hahaha, tidak apa-apa.” Lalu kami foto bersama, dan aku bertanya tentang kesehatannya (Lay memiliki gangguan pendarahan, itu terungkap di salah satu tulisannya yang ia tulis dahulu). Lay sebenarnya berkata “Sebelumnya aku merasa terlalu lelah, tetapi masalahnya tidak begitu serius, itu hanya karena aku terlalu lama menari. Setelah aku beristirahat seminggu, sekarang aku sudah kembali normal, jadi aku mulai berlatih kembali perlahan-lahan.” Aku tidak tahu harus berkata apa jadi aku berkata “Ketika kamu tidak dirumah, kesehatanmu adalah yang terpenting. Kamu perlu menjaga diri sendiri, jangan terluka lagi.”

……

Ditengah obrolan kami, aku mendapat sms dari TangTang yang menyuruhku untuk mentraktir Lay makan dan mereka akan menggantinya uangnya nanti. Lalu Lay melihat sms itu dan tertawa “Aku benar-benar tidak menduga kalian menyiapkan hadiah-hadiah ini untukku. Aku sudah merasa sangat puas dengan kuenya. Sebelumnya, aku merayakan ulang tahunku hanya dengan makan malam bersama dengan kakek-nenekku.  Hari ini kalian memberi sangat banyak hadiah, aku sangat sangat sangat berterimakasih, Sekarang aku tidak punya uang, kalau aku punya aku akan mentraktir makan kalian. Itu tidak akan jadi kalian yang berdiskusi tentang mentraktirku, Aku sangat ingin meminta maaf, untuk menerima hadiah-hadiah ini dari kalian, tetapi aku tidak bisa membalasnya dengan apapun. Bagaimana kalau aku belikan kalian soda? Aku masih mampu kalai beli soda.” Tentu saja aku bilang padanya tidak apa-apa kalau ia tidak harus membelikanku soda. Di korea, sebotol soda cukup mahal harganya, sekitar 8000 rupiah, Sekarang ia belum debut, jadi ia belum memiliki sumber pendapatan. Aku sendiri jarang membeli soda dengan uang sendiri karena aku rasa kalau itu sangat mahal. Setelah mengobrol dengannya, aku sangat merasa kalau dia luar biasa. Hadiah hanyalah kado yang penting, itu bukanlah hal yang diberikan setiap hari, hari ini adalah hari ulang tahunnya! Ia benar-benar terlihat berterimakasih dan selalu berulang-ulang mengucapkan terima kasih. Aku bilang pada Lay “Hadiah-hadiah ini hanya untuk menunjukkan dukungan kami, ini benar-benar tidak ada apa-apanya. Kamu tahu kalau semua orang menunggu kamu untuk segera debut.” Ia tersenyum senang dan berkata “Aku juga, aku harap aku dapat debut segera.”

……

Setelah itu, kami mengucapkan selamat ulang tahun padanya dan berjalan turun tangga dari balkon berpisah ke jalan kami masing-masing. Sebelum kami berpisah sejauh 2 meter, Lay tiba-tiba berbalik dan berkata keras-keras pada kami “Hati-hati kalian di jalan pulang. Aku harap kalian akan selalu bahagia, puas, dan senang. Hari ini, aku sangat berterimakasih pada kalian.”

 

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:

Translated this account from a staff of zhangyixing baidu bar who was studying abroad in Korea and was the frontline person to deliver Lay’s birthday presents and cake

[…When I came out of the taxi, it was already 9:48pm (they were supposed to meet at 9). There were only 3 people waiting for stars outside the SM building. Hoping that maybe Lay was still practicing, I sat on the other side of the SM building while I waited. Suddenly a girl came over and asked me in Chinese “I see that you are holding a cake, are you waiting for Lay as well?” I said yes. So we waited for him together while we chatted about how we became Lay’s fan. I was more envious of her, she said she started liking Lay while she was waiting for other stars. She came here often, last time she saw Lay was 3 months ago. She asked me how long have I known Lay, embarrassed, I told her that even though I had connections with him for being the forum staff, I haven’t seen him in person yet, and he doesn’t know who I am.

It was already 10:30pm, a guy came out from SM’s back door. Lay? He saw us and smiled, I knew it was him. In order to get Lay’s attention, I started speaking in Changsha dialect, Lay seemed really happy “Ah, hometown dialect. It feels really good to hear hometown dialect in Korea.” He then said that the presents and cake are too heavy for us to carry so he’ll carry them. He first helped carry the other girl’s, then he carried mine. He kept on repeating words of thanks, and joked that he was worried that he won’t be able to eat cake, but he didn’t know that he would receive two today. Then we started chatting.

Lay: “How long has it been since I saw you last time? 1 month? 2 months?”

Other girl: “no, it’s been 3 months.”

Lay: “really, I feel like it hasn’t been that long”

Other girl: “see, I have been on vacation for 2 months, now it’s already 1 month into a new semester…”

Lay: “I came at 9:00pm by the building front, nobody was here, so I thought maybe you were late. Then I waited 5 min there, also went to the front door and opened it, there were still no one there, so I went back to the studio to practice dance for a little while. Later I came out and still there were nobody here, so I left. Halfway home, I was worried that you guys might’ve came late and could be waiting for me, so I came back to the company again…”

Embarrassed, I told him about my problem with the lost taxi driver, and said “aiya, I’m really embarrassed…” I felt that I didn’t have enough reasons to continue explaining myself. I’m really sorry that I made you worried, Lay.
Lay: “alright, let’s go to that convenience store, we can’t stand here for too long…”
…..

Then we chatted while we walked over to a convenience store close by the SM building, and went up to the balcony. The stairway to the balcony was very narrow, Lay walked behind us, when we walked up the stairs he repeatedly told us to be careful and don’t fall down. I started telling him about the things being discussed right now on his forum. While signing autographs, Lay apologized, “my handwriting isn’t really that great. I don’t know what to write, I only know how to sign my name.” In order to make him feel less worried about everybody judging him on his handwriting, I joked “we liked you for so long, we all know what your handwriting looks like. hahaha, it’s alright.” Later we took some pictures, and I asked him about his health (note: Lay has a coagulation/bleeding disorder, it was revealed in one of the essays he wrote back in the days). Lay actually said “Before I was feeling a little too exhausted, but the problem wasn’t too serious, it was because I danced for too long. After I rested for a week, now I’m all back to normal, so I started practicing little by little again.” I didn’t know what to say, so I said “when you are away from home, your health is the most important. you need to take good care of yourself, don’t get injured again.”

……

In the middle of our chat, I got a text from TangTang telling me to treat Lay to a meal and that they will reimburse me. He saw the text and laughed “I really didn’t expect you all to prepare these presents for me. I feel very content with the cake already. Before when I celebrated my birthday, I just had dinner with my grandparents. Today you guys gave me so many gifts, I am really really really thankful. Right now I don’t have any money, if I had money I would treat you guys to a meal. It wouldn’t be that you guys are discussing about treating me to a meal. I really want to apologize, to receive all these presents from you guys, but I cannot give you anything in return. How about I buy you some soda? I can still afford sodas.” Of course I told him it’s alright, that he didn’t have to buy me soda. In Korea, a bottle of soda is quite expensive, just a can is around 6rmb. Right now he hasn’t debuted, so he doesn’t have any sources of income. I don’t even buy sodas myself often because I feel like they are too expensive. After chatting with him, I really felt like he was extraordinary. Presents are just necessary gifts, it’s not like they are being given everyday, today is his birthday after all! He just looked so genuinely appreciative, and kept saying thanks repeatedly. I told Lay “These presents are just here to show you our support, it’s really nothing. You know everyone is just waiting for you to debut soon.” He smiled happily and said “Me too, I hope I can debut soon.”

……

Afterwards, we told him happy birthday and walked down the stairs from the balcony and parted to our separate ways. Before we became 2 meters part, Lay suddenly turned around and spoke loudly to us “Be careful when you guys go home. I hope you guys will be be forever cheerful, content, and happy. Today, thank you guys very much.”]
