I had started writing the part 2 of my FM diary but looks like I have to put it on hold for now. Seems like the videos that I have uploaded onto YT are fast attracting lots of attention. Even a local Japanese media had caught on and even commented that one could make a DVD from the many vids I captured. So I thought I’d better do the full summary of the FM and post all the vids and photos in one post so that everyone can ‘watch’ all the vids n pixs according to the program sequence and know that they didn’t miss any out. I’ll be keeping my comments to the minimum ie only making comments to explain the vids/pixs. I’ll write my own personal thoughts/feelings when I continue writing “My Diary”.
I didn’t take much other vids as my priority was taking the song and dance performances. I took only brief vids of him talking, games and interviews as I had also wanted to conserve my battery and memory space. So hopefully these short vids is enough to provide you with the gist of what was happening.
Since I’m not sure how long my vids can stay uploaded in YT before I get a notification to remove them all, I’d suggest everyone to ‘pali pali’ download all of them asap! When viewing and downloading, pls note that u can view/DL the highest 1080p HD quality.
Lastly, for anyone who may want to repost my entire post onto any other websites, forums, blogs etc, I ask that you please PM me to give me the heads up. This is so that I can visit your repost and ensure that my words/post is fully intact and none taken out of context. Please also kindly provide a link to this original source and give due credit mention to Joo Won soompi International Fans. Many thanks for your co-operation.
I’m doing this based on @manyearsago‘s earlier post on Page 1236 where she had provided a translated version of a recap done by a Japanese media. Note that I’m addressing cutie as JW since I’m not sure if this will be reposted elsewhere. Please note that I may not be accurate in my sequence. I might not have correctly identified the videos of JW talking too. I made my guesses based on the clothes he was wearing.
The FM started punctually at 5pm with JW singing the Level 7 Civil Servant OST, ‘A Path Towards You’. As I was busy fulfilling a prior promise, I had to rely on my backup partner to record this bit. Unfortunately, it was not captured in full. Guess my backup partner was stunned by his electrifying performance on stage.

Here’s a part 2 of JW singing the opening song ‘A Path Towards You’, L7CS Ost. Although this is a much shorter clip, it is clearer and there was a point where JW made a ‘love’ sign with one arm! So cute!

After receiving a very warm reception, an interview session proceeded. I managed to record a short vid of his interview talking mainly about L7CS drama.
Here’s some pictures I had taken. Sorry they aren’t clear but you can at least make out JW’s face on the big screen.
Since this FM was held to promote L7CS drama, the first game was a ‘Shooting Game’. Here’s a couple of short vids and photos.

Next up was the airing of L7CS romantic scenes. Here’s a short video clip where JW was looking so shy and embarrassed!
Interview of JW talking about L7CS romantic scenes
Next up was the ‘Insight/Spy Test Game’ where JW was asked to look for 3 types of people in the crowd. 1) someone who works as a ‘Civil Servant’, 2) someone who’d have JPY100,000 in her wallet, and 3) someone who’d have JW’s photo in her hand phone. Here’s a blurry photo of the 3 ladies that JW picked. JW correctly picked the 1st is the lady with JPY100K and the 2nd lady with his photo in her HP. But the 3rd lady was the not a Civil Servant but a homemaker instead.
Next segment sees a special appearance by L7CS’s ‘JJ’! Yes, Im Yoon Ho comes on stage and there’s another round of interviews. Here’s a short video of that interview.
JW’s and Im Yoon Ho’s interview
Im Yoon Ho took the stage and sang Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’, the OST for the movie ‘Titanic’. He looked pretty nervous to me but overall I think he did pretty well. Immediately after IYH’s song, a short video clip was aired where I think JW was talking about his preparations for this FM. He looked so gorgeous in that clip! Then the almighty JW appeared belting out one of his favourite and most sung songs, ‘This is the Moment’, an OST from the ‘Jekyll and Hyde musical’. He sang with his usual ‘from deep deep within his stomach muscles gusto’ and ultimate voice control!

Here’s another IYH only video for all IYH’s fans!
Here’s another video of just JW singing ‘Jekyll & Hyde OST’. Although it’s shakier, I think it’s also clearer. Posted it so you can better see and appreciate just how much effort JW puts into his singing!

Here’s a short clip of JW talking after singing the ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ OST.
JW then sang another L7CS OST – ‘Don’t Know how to Love’. I have 2 clips. The first is blurry but it’s longer with a bit of talking before and after the song.

Here’s another shorter but much clearer version.

The atmosphere started to pick up with JW’s next song, ‘I Believe’ – My Sassy Girl Movie OST. I was so awed because this was the first time I saw JW singing and dancing complete with backup dancers! Everyone was up on their feet dancing along with him! It took even more effort for me to record this because 1) everyone on my row was up and bouncing so I had to try to steady my recording hands even more 2) I myself wanted to stand up and dance because his performance was just so captivating and contagious! I wanted to wave my hands around and at one point I felt like I was in an evangelical session all fired up and ready to shout AMEN! Such was the euphoric atmosphere that JW had managed to drum up! Sorry, I did say I wasn’t going to comment much BUT seeing this clip again just ignited my passion! No matter how often I’ve seen this clip, it still NEVER fails to give me the goose bumps!!!! Ohhhhh…. His vocals here were just AMAZING!!!! Ohhhhhh…..

Here’s a short clip after JW’s euphoric rendition of ‘I Believe’, where JW very cutely asked the audience to have a seat.

Another ‘hot’ number ensued with JW signing ‘Because I am Stupid’ – Boys Before Flowers OST. Our beloved JW was transformed into a hot Kpop Idol star with his singing and sleek dance moves! Ohhhh…. When the introduction of ‘Gangnam Style’ was played immediately after ‘Because I am Stupid’ ended, I was like ‘Oh.My.GAWD….!!!’ I was in utter belief! JW came out dancing the horse dance and I my mouth just couldn’t close! LOL! Ok ok, I’ll stop commenting!

Yes, the occasional ‘gasps’ you heard was from yours truly! . Here’s a short clip of JW talking after dancing to GN. *@daydreamsindecember: If you could, please just do the translations for this clip cos JW looked like he was trying hard not cry.
JW Taking after Gangnam Style
I’d be very honest to say that I’m not very confident that I got this part of the sequence correct. Maybe you should all hear @manyearsgo full 2hours audio clip.
Once again, the very heart-wrenching moment when JW read out his love letter. To do his letter more justice, I’m going to ‘copy n paste’ the English translation which @daydreamsindecember had did n posted earlier.

This is exactly why I love this man so…. ok ok… must.not.comment…. save.for.diary.review…. urgh…zip mouth.
JW then proceeded to sing a lovely and soothing Japanese song called ‘Close your eyes’, by Hirai Ken.

At this point I could really sense JW’s exhaustion. Nevertheless, he still came on for an encore song. Singing ‘Nadeshiko’, his debut Japanese song.

Ok, that pretty wraps up this summary. I sure hope all links are ‘clickable’.
Do remember to ‘pali pali’ DL all files while it’s still in YT. Remember to DL the highest 1080p HD quality (look for the bottom right ‘wheel’).
