Day 9 [1st July 2011] – Music Bank + Open Concert

Yesterday after class my friend started screaming like mad to me.. and the reason was, WE ACTUALLY WON TICKETS TO MUSIC BANK THE FOLLOWING DAY!

Well, she received an SMS from our korean number saying that we have won tickets blah blah blah. It was really a big shocked because I did not know that out internet application for tickets was successful as  they needed alien number and i tried to key in a lot of numbers but i think i still failed somehow or what? So in fact we were not expecting the tickets at all!!

Okay let’s just fast forward everything.


Lunch was at Gangnam, at some italian restaurant. it was 15,000W + 10% tax or service charge for a 4 course meal.

  

Okay shall skip the crap and move on to the main part, urm we reached KBS.
Directions to KBS: Exit 4 of National Assembly Station. Walk forward, then you turn right then you walk out the way straight will be KBS. It is about 5 mins walk.

Alright so when we reach there, there were a lot of people! after checking twitter updates, i realise that there was some kpop competition going on just now. there’s some exhibition thingy going on.

After asking around for help, we got directed to this queue which says ‘Free-Standing’ and gosh we were like so far behind in the queue! and well it was kind of hot and there was sun and everything so our mood went all the way down because we were unsure about what’s happening next, fearing that our alien number would not tally and they seating people were already entering.

Usually for music bank, there isn’t free-standing as we were there last week. Thus we were kind of worried where we were going to stand. Well, when entering the doors, all they did was to check the names!

Before reaching the hall, we heard “why” by dbsk. probably a rehearsal and OMG when we saw the  free standing area we were like OMG. SO FRONT! anyway, the middle portion were all filled so i was like asking my friend left or right. trying to recall which side of the stage khun usually performs, but well our instinct chose ‘right’ and omg, it was really the RIGHT CHOICE!

We were at the side where the artistes prepare to enter the stage! YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS? EVERYTIME THE ARTISTES ARE WAITING, YOU CAN PRAY HARD THAT THEY LOOK AT THE AUDIENCE! OMG I DIED.

YOU GET TO SEE THEM LIKE MAYBE ONLY 3 METERS AWAY. AND FROM THE STAGE, I THINK IF I TAKE MY UMBRELLA OUT I MIGHT BE ABLE TO HIT KHUN’S LEG WHEN HE WALK PAST. LOL.

Some photos which I tried to take illegally.

This was before KHJ came out. it was his dancer i think.

This was how close we could see them! sorry for the poor photos! All done on iphone 3GS. And illegally so I just anyhow click on my phone without checking what I was taking. Oh wells! It’s fx btw.


FINAL STAGE OMG. KHUN.

Alright now for my passing comments on everything!
(1) Always stand at the side nearer to the entrance/exit. You will have more chance for fan service.
Fan service I received or so I thought.
Zinger from Secret Smiled and gave a small bow when i waved.
Infinite Maknae Sung Jong smiled and wave twice if i didn’t remember wrongly
Chansung responded to our waves when we did the ‘hands up’ dance move (he became my 2nd bias overnight)

Alright and actually I sort of anyhow wave to everyone just for fun so it was more of a zi-high thing. Then again, there were so many people. I can’t be sure that they are really waving at me. Hmm.

Okay when a performance is pre-recorded, the artiste may or may not go up the stage to lip sync the song. Sometimes they just watch at the side, especially for all the re-sung songs, the artiste did not go up the stage today.

All the performances

I wasn’t paying attention to this performance at all because i was keeping my eyes fixed chansung, taec and junho. Khun was missing. he came up not by the front. but it was when we did the ‘hands up’ thing and changsung acknowleged. i was holding my ‘KHUN’ and waving like crazy.

FINALE STAGE WAS AWESOME BECAUSE KHUN WAS STANDING IN THE FIRST ROW.

After that we took photos of the stage while waiting to exit.


we were thankful to have this to hang out bags. if not i would have died totally. heh.

alright, after the thing ended, we went to have a drink at dunkin donuts in the subway station, resting our feets.
After that we went all the way to Seoul City Hall for the KBS Danny Ah’s radio open concert show~~

Well I’m not sure who we missed but we got to watch an indie band, 10cm i think, the guy who sang secret garden’s OST – kim bum soo, fx – hot summer and Pinocchio , secret – shy boy & starlight moonlight, 2pm with HANDS UP & 10 POINTS OUT OF 10 POINTS!

Happy, happy, happy. 10 days into Seoul, seen 2PM Hands up performance 3 times. how awesome. and nickhun was within 5 meters of my sight.

  • Gosh I think my friends will kill to watch the stars?
    Where is it?
    What are the places that you have visited already? Just return from 63 building and not sure where to go tomorrow
    Do you have any recommendations?

    • Music Bank is at KBS..
      As to how to watch music shows, it is a very tedious process and you need to go through a lot of effort like finding out what are the fan clubs requirements..
      So unless you and your friends are very patient.. then you can consider going for music shows.

      As for the open concert, it is a one time only event which is over already.
      As for upcoming open concerts, I am unsure of any.

      I haven’t traveled much is Seoul. But I went cycling along Han river at this station called Ttukseom Resort.
      Rental is 3,000W per hour. You can consider it if the weather is good tomorrow.

      Enjoy your trip in korea =)

      • By the way, it’s very time consuming.. for an international fan, you have to scan in your passport details for them to approve your account and stuff like that.. so take about 1-2 weeks just for the application process for their account. Only with an approved account, can you apply for the tickets.
