Date of this incident happened: September 25, 2014
Location: CJ E&M Center, Mapo-gu, Seoul
Event that happened: M! Countdown music show
Disclaimer: What you're about to hear is real (I'm a witness BTW) and not made up
Before I start, I didn't know there was a SSF fan accounts section where you can tell your stories about meeting SNSD personally even if it goes down. So I thought "why not tell my story to people on Soshified about how I got my hand touched by Tiffany and Seohyun?" So here's the story and it'll be ingrained in my life forever.
I was spending a one-month vacation in South Korea, I visited a lot of location like Seoul, Busan, and Jeju Island during my 1-month vacation. Took a lot of pictures and bought some K-pop merchandises during my vacation. But I'm going to tell you what really made my trip memorable (and also sticking to the topic).
Prior to the trip, I wanted to go to a music show in South Korea, and I found about the M! Cultour package from Mwave and I found out you can book it via SM Town Travel. I was very lucky the date I book it coincide with SNSD-TTS comeback promotion:
Picture Above: that's my M Cultour reservation (don't worry I made sure this one doesn't give out too much information about me)
Now on the day of the concert, I didn't know if SNSD-TTS would make an appearance on that show, but turns out I chose the right day to see their performances. So I took a Subway to Digital Media City in Mapo-gu. Went around to find the CJ E&M Center.
Picture above: That's me at the CJ E&M Center, from my Facebook profile.
So I went through the tour of the CJ E&M Center, and took some pictures, and was amazed by the building design and how much work they put into impressing fans both in Korea and international. Oh and here's a picture I took of Yoona's handprint (I apologized if it's blurry):
Now after the tour end, me and other foreign fans were taken to the music show, and I was really excited to see not only SNSD-TTS but other K-pop idols performing that night. Now a little disclaimer: At these music show, you're not allowed to record or take any pictures of the performances at all, so I know it'll sound to believe. But I was there, watch this video of WINNER performance at M! Countdown below, you should see me in the audience:

Throughout my attendance, I saw other K-pop idols performing. I saw BTS, WINNER, Teen Top, Spica S, T-ara, and others performing. But SNSD-TTS that made my night attendance more memorable. When TTS came out, I came out yelling, and showing my love and support for them. I happened to also witness their first win at M! Countdown:

What the video above doesn't show you is that TTS went around the stage and touching their fans' hand. I have to be the many lucky fans to get my hand touched by Tiffany and Seohyun (yep you heard it right, Seohyun and Tiffany touched my hand). That was the night I will never forget, my hand touched by Tiffany and Seohyun. I was so excited and gone fanboy-ism when the 2 touched my hand. After that, took the subway back to the hotel and couldn't forget that night I touched Seohyun and Tiffany touched my hand, that I've even talked about it on my Facebook post:
I also went to Soshified the next day and told people via shoutbox that I saw SNSD-TTS up close and personal and also told people about Seohyun and Tiffany touched my hand (If any of you were on Soshified's Shoutbox on that day you might have remember).
So yes this is probably the greatest Soshi encounter I've ever came close to (along with seeing other K-pop idols on stage). So like many other SSF Fan account, your dream can come true if you put a lot of effort into it and it also it comes down to luck.
So what do you think? Have you ever touched any hand of the member of Soshi? If you did, how did it feel?
I want to end this story by showing 2 pictures from my South Korea trip:
