Lee Min Ho in Singapore

After days of speculation and rumours flying around faster than you can say F4, they have finally issued an official press release and details of his schedule as well as the Etude House promotion to his fan meet.

24th October
12.30- Arrival
14.30- Press conference
16.00- Visit to Etude House and Plaza Singapore (B1-26)
17.00- ETUDE House Party (fan meet) (Moivda @ St James Power Station)

About Etude House Party
By now, most LMH fans would have known that there was an initial promotion whereby a purchase of S$200 worth of products would have entitles you to that elusive fan meet ticket. This method was similar to The Face Shop's Kwon Sang Woo's visit some years ago. But I guess it may have just occured to them that there is this possibility that there would be thousands of fans (I read there are quite a bumber of fans flying over) and no venue to hold it. Afterall, they were still sourcing for venue last week. So this has been stopped. But for the lucky first 50 fans who did buy S$200 worth of products inittially, they will become the VIPs at the fan meet.

In place is a scratch-and-win card thing. For every purchase of S$15, you will be given a card. And if you are lucky, you get to be among the 100 fans to see Go Jun Pyo aka Lee Min Ho.

Now what is not clear is.......does that mean:

1) S$15 and above in a single receipt = one card

OR

2) S$60 in a single receipt = 4 cards

Hmm.... I guess we will know soon as the promotion starts from today, 9th October and lasts till 16th October...only at the ION Orchard branch.

Just a little note about ION Orchard branch. I spent a total of 30 minutes trying to find this store the other day! Almost gave up liao and had to actually ask 2 people before I found the shop finally. The address is really, totally misleading (see my previous post on the address). Anyway, the easiest way- just head towards the 7-11 store, which is near the mrt ticket sales counter. It is along the passageway leading to Tangs. I must say though that it was very nice to see the familiar small basket with the box of free facial pads being given out. So far, I would think this is the only Korean cosmetic chain that follows the same practice as in Korea. All the other chains here- The Face Shop, Missha, Skin Food have totally cut out this practice. :(

Anyway, I think it's going to total chaos the next few days.

I know L is going to be making multiple purchases. Good luck, L!

yes..going tonite to try my luck..

no luck in 4D but this kind sometimes i do have better luck.. ^_^

so disappointed and angry with the way they organized the promotions. Nobody was aware of the $200 promotion last week if not for fans who went down to check it out day in day out...

We(the 9 of us) would have done a better job than them... ^_^

they better do not come out with last min funny and frustrating restriction on the promotions or i will blast at them for their unprofessionalism..

you mentioned the promotion is for 1 week, but i read from other forums that it's only 2 days(Fri & Sat)... OMG, they are providing different info to customers!!! *****shake head*****

i spent $30 got 2 scratchcards, and both were a failure..that was at PS..i'm gonna try my luck again at ION man............argh!

tiffany said...

L- all the infor is so confusing. Hopefully, everything goes well lor. Good luck!!!

Yeah, I've always said we should just set up an events company. Think we will do quite well. ^^

tiffany said...

hihi!

you mean the scratch card also at PS? The press release said only at ION Orchard. Aiyoh! So confusing!

L said...

gals, it's all down to sales tactics...

went down to ION yesterday...no luck with 3 cards.. those gals before us also do not have any luck.. and you do not get to draw lots to take your card... the staff give it to you..(u know what i mean)....

they knows which are the ones with the prizes.....

we shdn't even go during the 1st 2-3days... we are helping to remove all those 'sorry' cards out...haha... they will not release too many with prizes scratch n win card so soon... at least 3rd or 4th day...

now i hope i have better luck with Kang Ji Hwan coming to sg after LMH..

Anonymous said...

haha..yea...scratch cards are at both PS and ION..i called them up before making a trip down...

I think this scratchcard thing is ridiculous man..they just wan to make profits for the business.....just imagine, if there are people who die die wanna get ticket....and to get a positive scratchcard..one might have to spend a few hundred bucks perhaps....then just imagine the ticket is worh a few hundred bucks for just some random party which isn't even a concert....

Its really ridiculous i feel..but nevertheless as a lmh fan...i guess i'll do the absurd anyway....if i'm lucky..i'll get it..i i'm unlucky..i'll probably go in a corner and sob for a month..lol

tiffany said...

L- you don't get to pick your cards? I think that's a little unfair. Should at least let customers pick their own lucky cards. I'm sure it's going to be crazy during the weekend and towards the end of the promotion. But now I'm totally confused about the period of promotion. The Etude House FB says until 23rd Oct but official press release says until 16th Oct. I find it hard to believe they will end the promotion just before his arrival.

As for Kang Ji Hwan, I'll try to find out mroe news and post here soon. But hor...I'm not very optimistic about the organiser...

tiffany said...

hihi!

It's understandable for them to want to make money. Afterall, it probably cost them an arm and a leg and more to bring Lee Min Ho here. But...I think the whole promotion and infor release could have been managed better.

Than again, having dealt with Korean artises and Koreans in my course of work, I have found out they make decisions very late.

Oh well.. good luck! I may try my luck later as well...if it's not too crowded. ^^

i went to ion but i failed again..my 3rd time man...all in all..i already accumulated 4 posters, and 3 files....but my scratchcards are all fail..... time to go to a corner and sob sob..lol

L said...

Anonymous, it's not just a few hundred dollars, it could accumulate to a thousand if that fan wants to get it by hook or by crook....... provided she comes from a rich family...hahaha....

Tiffany, i wouldn't be surprised if the promotion is until 23rd.. and i also doubt the scratch n win card is only 3000pcs.. it could be more..... they could just keep on giving out those 'sorry' cards and only release it on the last 2-3days of the promotion... or just release 10 in a week... but till now we have not heard anyone winning it....

Err. I got it.. 1 CAT on my card... But kind of weird going alone...

tiffany said...

hihi!
You got 1 cat? Go lah! You won't be alone at the event what..so many LMH fans. Although I do agree that it would be more fun to go with a friend at least.

Well....you can always pass the ticket to someone. I know L will be the first in queue. ^^

Choo said...

ive gotten myself 6 "sorry" cards.. damn.. they sld let us redeem something at least! feel so cheated.. i wanna see lmh!!! u all going airport / PS? is there any fan meet up to go together.. it IS weird to go alone.. *sheepish*

tiffany said...

Choo, it's going to be crowded at both the airport and Plaza Singapura. But I think at least maybe airport got more chance if you go there early and 'chope' you spot. Coz the event at PS is inside the EH shop. And you know how small that shop is.....

Not weird to go alone lah. Like I said, you won't be alone when you are there lor. Believe me, can make friends very fast one. hehehe!

wang said...
