So much KPOP news to talk about! But first, let’s talk about the London Korean Festival which brought the likes of Snuper, Knk, EXID and Highlight to our shores!
Held at the London Olympia, the ground floor consisted of the stage and a wide open space for people to sit and enjoy KPOP cover dance acts. Whilst upstairs was packed with food stalls and an array of Korean related activities.
- It was a bit of a nightmare queuing up just to get upstairs. By the time I reached the top, the food was sold out! But I was so hungry that I just ordered whatever was available and sat on the floor.
- There was a queue for everything….and those queues were way too long.
- The space upstairs was not suitable for holding so many people. The layout made it awkward for people to visit every store.
Anyway, those were my gripes! I think if this event happens again, I might just skip the cultural part and go straight to the concert. HOPEFULLY, lessons will be learnt and a better system will be implemented.
The best part of the day was definitely the concert. As far as concert venues are concerned, the London Olympia was perfect!
I was initially somewhere in the mosh, not that near to the stage but not too far out. I couldn’t see a thing so I split from my group so at least I could see people standing on the stage!
Here’s my highlights of the show!
Snuper and KNK were both fun to watch and amazing dancers. I particularly enjoyed the part where Snuper were serenading a very stunned fangirl!
After that, I decided to walk a bit closer to the stage as I could see a lot of open space on the far side. I managed to find a great view which didn’t involve any kind of sweating or being uncomfortably pressed up against random strangers!
Just in time for EXID! Definitely, my favourite act of the night since I know all their songs. Hani’s hair is SO SHINY. I need to know her secret.
I decided I needed to exercise more after watching them…let’s see if that actually happens.
Here is quite literally my HIGHLIGHT video
I don’t know too much about them! I have seen them before in Seoul but they were billed as the headliners. My favourite song of theirs is the epic ‘Plz don’t be sad.’
So post concert blues? I hope not.
After a drought of KPOP concerts, I suddenly had 3 to attend! Recently I went to Dean’s concert (which was amazing!) and then in a couple of months later, I will have GDRAGON (erm mah gaddd….). I hope a couple more wallet friendly concerts get announced as there’s nothing more fun than enjoying live music!
Do you have any concerts lined up? or any new music recs for me? let me know!!!
