    Tower of God @ Frankfurt Book Fair 2013

    Decided to make this a single thread, in case others have something to share as well. Things won't get lost that easily this way too.

    Not the best shots, but the best I could manage I reacted too late when he was about to finish my drawing, so you can only see half his face because he suddenly went up and gave me the book.

    You could just take the webtoons you see in one of the windows. Took me some time until I realized lol T_T because of that I couldn't get that many webtoons

    Absolutely fantastic!!! Thanks you very much to both of your. Like Toshu says, let's hope his wrist is fine after all this signing/drawing marathon... From the vids he's very sympathetic guy, and it has a nice smile. Very shy.

    But the stink that filled the privy gave ample evidence that the oft-repeated jape about his father was just another lie. Lord Tywin Lannister did not, in the end, shit gold

    Haha

    The fair is here for several days, but it's only accessible for everyone at the weekend. Before that it's only experts and exhibitor. Would have went today, but lacked the time Maybe they will come here next year again

    Re: Tower of God @ Frankfurt Book Fair 2013

    To those who've been to the fair, I have something to ask.


    I asked one of my friends to get a drawing of Yuri and Viole for me, and the Yuri SIU drew for me had different hairstyle. A bit like Yihwa's in recent chapters.


    The thing is, SIU used to complain that Yuri's hairstyle is too hard to draw like ever since the ToG started.

    And few months ago he once mentioned in a chatroom that he might change Lero-ro and Yuri's hair because they're too annoying to draw. I thought it was just another one of his usual complaints and halfhearted joke(which he does often) but seeing this bun-haired Yuri in front of me, it sounds serious now.


    Did anyone get drawing of Yuri today or yesterday? How did she look?

    Re: Tower of God @ Frankfurt Book Fair 2013

    I also somehow managed to visit the Frankfurt Book Fair today! And it was amazing! Because ToG is amazing! Because SIU is amazing!

    I arrived around 30 minutes earlier before the start of the book signing and there were already a lot of people waiting in line. Thought I wouldn't get a book, but I was lucky and got one. It seemed that they had a huge amount of books in stock, since I saw SIU and Yongje Park still signing books after one and an half hour.

    I can confirm that SIU was shy to some degree. Yongje Park on the other hand made the impression to be more spontaneous. Both of them sat next to each other signing the books and there was a woman who acted as an interpreter. While SIU communicated with me via that woman, Yongje Park tried to seek "talks" (it was one question though) with me personally. But I didn't understand him, so the interpreter had to help us out, lol.

    He asked me where I'm from and I replied that I'm from Turkey. The interpreter was shocked at first, because she thought I came all the way from Turkey. But I cleared everything up, saying that I'm a turk and living in Germany. I was surprised when she said that they have a lot of turkish fans in korea. I never heard about this.

    There was also an awkward moment for me. I didn't know that SIU and Yongje Park are signing the books for one fan simultaneously. I thought there are two seperate waiting lines, but wrong... there was only one waiting line for both of them. I never intended to "meet" Yongje Park, since I don't read The God of Highschool. So, when Yongje Park asked me which character I wish him to draw for me, my mental state was like this:

    What I answered:

    Spoiler show


    This was really awkward. :/ Guess, I have to read The God of Highschool now as an apology. The signed book with the first six chapters will be a good start I think.

    Let's head to SIU. First off I want to say sorry to ukimix. If I had read your post before I went to the Fair, I would have definitely told SIU about your offer. I kinda feel bad. Forgive me.

    SIU also drew a character for me. I was torn between Aguero and Yuri (actually I wanted to joke a bit and tell him to draw me Enryu or Phantaminum). But I decided for the latter, since Yuri appears very rarely in the chapters. While SIU was drawing Yuri for me, I wanted to ask him a lot of questions. But two things stopped me from doing that. First, I thought it would be impolite to bombard him with questions, while he was drawing. And second, we (I was there with a friend) saw an amazing Kisame-Cosplayer walking around. And I assure you, he was perfect in every sense of the word! I really wanted to take a picture with him, so I kept an eye on that fish. Unfortunately, I lost sight of him.

    I still asked SIU two questions:

    syx: "I want to see Yuri again, when will we see her?"
    SIU: (he laughed first) "I think she won't appear at least for six months."

    syx: "Are there any plans for an animated tv series?"
    SIU: (shakes his head) "No, there are no plans."

    His expression while shaking his head was like - how should I describe it - like he never talked, heared and thought about it.

    After both authors drew the characters and signed the books, they let me take a picture with them. They were amazing! Very nice guys! It was definitely worth the trip, waiting and money!

    Thanks syx!! I remember SIU saying that Yuri will not appear during Gongbang Arc, but might appear in the next arc, Jahad's Princess. So more than 6 months left until Yuri appears!! Can I ask you one question? The drawing that SIU gave to you, which character is it? It somewhat looks like Yuri... or is it just my imagination?

    EDIT: Ah, my bad. You wrote it there that it's Yuri you requested. Somehow she seems to have different hairstyle from the original. Hmmm....

    Yeah, I know. I always wanted to try this series, but never made that first step. But I will definitely read it, promise!

    Could be because it's "just" a sketch rather than a full detailed picture or a big part of her hair missing. Dunno, seems like we have to wait... at least six months.

    Well the one my friend got for me had a completely different hairstyle: http://me2day.net/primuler_/2013/10/14/p5plxa1-2493

    I remember a Korean fan saying that she'll throw a big party on the second anniversary of Yuri's absence. Now we know for sure that she'll have to prepare that party. Only like three months left...

    Just asking, in the book there were different pictures for a cover every chapter.

    Chapter 1 was Baam and Chapter 4 was Koon. Then who was the cover in chapter 2 and 3? I assume one of them will be Rachel, but who is another one? Yuri?

    Haha nice syx, you should have told me in advance, I would have made time somehow if I knew someone besides me here would be coming

    And the funny thing is, I did the same as you I didn't know shit about God of Highschool so I just told him to draw the main character. Funny that we got the exact same sketch, I guess saying "Main character" makes him draw that one

    Two and three have Baam as well (same picture), otherwise I would have shared them.
