Group NU’EST has raised the curtain to the fan meeting, ‘L.O.Λ.E PAGE.’
NU’EST held 2019 NU’EST FAN MEETING ‘L.O.Λ.E PAGE’ and met with fans from the 15th to 17th KST at Seoul KSPO DOME (Olympics Gymnastics Arena).
The fan meeting ‘L.O.Λ.E PAGE’ is inspired by Grimms’ fairy tale ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ and prepared as a gift to the fan club ‘L.O.Λ.E(LOVE)’ who dressed NU’EST in finest clothes.
On the 16th, Hanteo News covered the second fan meeting of the group at the scene. We picked 10 most unforgettable moments among the precious 4 hours of NU’EST with LOVEs.
#1. NU’EST’s ‘talking down’ greetings
After performing ‘BASS’ and ‘BET BET’ as the opening stages, NU’EST members re-entered the stage with the introduction of MC Park Jisun, who is also known for her love of NU’EST. Park Jisun asked the members, “Say hello in a ‘talking-down’ mode.”
Baekho said, “Hello, it’s very awkward to say hello while talking down,” and Ren said, “I’m baby-angel-fairy-prince Mingi. Nice to meet you.” JR greeted, “Hello, right now, I’m Maltese JR,” Aron, “Hello, my elder brothers! I’m Aron, the younger sister!,” and lastly, Minhyun said, “Hello, I’m Minhyun. Let’s have fun today.”
With the ‘talking down’ greetings, NU’EST and LOVEs started the fan meeting getting closer to each other.
#2. ‘Dynamic heart’ - Baekho and Ren’s precious heart
While talking about the recent promotion of ‘The Table,’ members made hearts to the fans and made their hearts flutter to the request from MC Park Jisun.
Especially, Baekho and Ren, who went the last, showed a heart together. Befitting the request of ‘dynamic heart,’ they ran to the center stage and drew a great reaction from the fans. To this, the rest of the members also showed strong reactions to the heart.
#3. NU’EST and LOVEs loved ‘oyster’
During the ‘Guess about me!’ section of the talk session, the members had time to guess random information about each other. As one of the questions, there was a topic prompted, ‘When he decides to pay for all the members, the food menu that Aron would buy them is ____.’ The answer to the question was ‘everything that the members want to have,’ but JR mentioned ‘oysters’ while guessing the answer.
According to the reason revealed during the game, the menu that JR wanted to pay for the members was ‘oysters,’ and JR argued that “there is an oyster” in the audience. In the direction that JR pointed his fingers, one of the LOVEs was holding the slogan that had individual letters of Aron’s name in Korean upside down1, which made everyone laugh. It was a witty moment that NU’EST members and LOVEs created together.
To this, Aron said, “It’s oyster seasons now. The oyster that is our LOVEs face2!” which received a loud cheer from the fans.
#4. Introduction to NU’EST, 2019 version
During the second talk segment, ‘Just show us 10 seconds,’ the members granted the wishes of the fans for 10 seconds.
One of the requests during the segment was to show again the individual greetings when they just debuted and make new individual greetings of 2019. After showing the shy greetings of the past, NU’EST members made new 2019 version greetings and showed them to the fans.
JR said, “I am NU’EST’s Doberman Pinscher, JR!,” and Ren continued, “I’m pink grapefruit, Ren!” Baekho used a similar concept of his earlier greetings and said, “Hello. I’m Baekho, and my eyes are brown.” Following Park Jisun’s recommendation, Minhyun greeted, “I’m Minhyun, and my hobby and specialty are cleaning and organizing, but my features are the most organized!,” and Aron also greeted, “I’m Aron, LOVEs’ younger sister!”
#5. The members’ ‘close-up shots’ and Aron with the best flower cup pose!
One more wish from the fans was revealed. It was, ‘We want to see the flower cup poses from the NU’EST members, who are prettier than flowers.’ The members showed the poses in the order of Baekho, Ren, JR, Minhyun, and Aron. Understanding the LOVEs thoughts well, Park Jisun requested to the camera directors to shoot the members in ‘close-up shots.’
When the camera closed up to the members, LOVEs couldn’t help but let out an exclamation. To this, members responded with handsome and cute flower cup poses. Especially, Aron, who went the last, stuck out his tongue as the last pose and captured LOVEs hearts. To the fervent cheer from LOVEs, Aron showed the pose once again and drew a heated reaction from the audience.
#6. The ‘Sleep Talking’ stage and a pair of ears grew on Baekho
After the talk segment was over, the members performed ‘Dejavu’ and ‘Sleep Talking’ on stage. Especially during the ‘Sleep Talking’ stage, NU’EST came up on the stage in pajamas. Performing the stage that matched the bed on the center of the stage floor, the members acted as if they were asleep at the end of the performance.
Before going into the game segment of the fan meeting, the fans noticed the pair of ears that Bakeho was wearing on his head. It was a pair of cat-like ears made out of his hair, and MC Park Jisun and LOVEs complimented how well it goes with Baekho. It was a moment of re-discovering Baekho’s cute charms.
#7. NU’EST’s ‘crazy teamwork’
During the first game corner, ‘pose game,’ the members had to describe a keyword in the same pose in order to get the question right.
To the keyword ‘LOVE,’ NU’EST sent each other signals and showed their teamwork by each making the individual letters in ‘LOVE♡.’ The next keyword was ‘King Kong,’ and as JR said that he expressed the King Kong beating its chest while holding onto the top of the tower in the movie ‘King Kong,’ the rest of the members argued that they also expressed the same scene with their smooth-talking and got their answers passed as correct, making the fans laugh.
#8. ‘Heart attack’ morning call for LOVEs
Another mission was given to NU’EST. It was to create ‘morning call for LOVEs.’
Going first, JR made a wonderful morning call by saying, “LOVE, I will smooch you with my lips if you don’t wake up quickly,” receiving loud cheer from the fans. Ren made a rock version, “LOVEs, wake up, yayaya!,” and continued with a cutie version, “I will tickle you if you don’t,” giving it a little twist. Baekho made a morning call with a song, singing the famous children’s song. He sang, “The round sun has risen. Let’s get up from the bed. Wake up. It’s time to wake up.”
Remaining Minhyun and Aron looked pressured, but Minhyun hummed the song that comes out of the subway stations with transfers and continued, “This station is NU’EST, NU’EST station. You can’t not get up at NU’EST station,” making a morning call in a new concept. Aron showcased a morning call of a warm and kind concept by saying, “Good morning, LOVE! I made breakfast, so wake up quickly. Let’s have it together. I love you!” and made the fans’ hearts flutter.
#9. Cuteness equipment complete with costumes!
When the time was ripe, a set of costumes were delivered to the members. Aron wore wings, and JR took the shark costume. After wearing the penguin costume, Minhyun did a dance of Pengsu, a penguin character of EBS broadcasting company, boasting his fatal cuteness.
Ren, who won the previous game and got to wear a crown, picked JR as the best dresser, and JR showed off a cute runway walking from the main to the center stage while members and LOVEs are watching him.
The continued ‘STORY BOOK’ stage was performed in the costumes that the members wore and transformed into the stage with additional cute charms. Fans responded with cheer when each and every member’s part came out.
#10. Ren rushing ahead and members watching
After about 3 hours since the fan meeting started, the members seemed to be more relaxed and comfortably communicated with LOVEs.
After performing ‘LOVE ME’ and ‘Stay up all night’ stages, NU’EST broke into two groups of 2 and 3 members and prepared for the next stage. While Baekho, Ren, and JR remained on the stage, Ren said he was impressed by the movie ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and asked Baekho and JR to join him with performance pretending to play guitar.
But when an exciting dance song came out of the speakers, Ren couldn’t resist his excitement and danced his heart out after moving out to the center stage. Towards Ren, who was excited to the point where he lied on the stage, the two members joked, “I thought we were supposed to play guitar, not suddenly dance” and “Why are you so full of energy?” To that, Ren replied, “I was originally going to play guitar, but I couldn’t resist because the song was too exciting,” livening up the atmosphere.
NU’EST’s fan meeting lasted almost 4 hours. When the fan meeting almost came to an end, NU’EST members took photos with the fans and strengthened their relationship.
As encore stages, the group performed the unreleased track ‘BLESSING,’ ‘Talk about love,’ and ‘ONE TWO THREE.’ Especially, the members moved to the 2nd floor of the audience during the ‘Talk about love’ performance and communicated with the fans more closely.
Selling out all the seats for all concerts right after the tickets went on sale, the fan meeting ‘L.O.Λ.E PAGE’ was joined by about 26,000 audiences throughout the 3 days. The reason why the show was sold out was apparent after experiencing the second fan meeting.
Through the fan meeting ‘L.O.Λ.E PAGE,’ NU’EST not only provided fabulous performance but also profusely showed their love of the fans and gifted a meaningful day to each other.
1The second letter of Aron’s name in Korean (‘론') means oyster in Korean when upside down (‘굴').
2‘Face’ in Korean is ‘얼굴,' which rhymes with ‘oyster’ in Korean (굴).
