Getting a chance to see some of Korea’s top K-pop stars for free is like finding a gold coin on the side of the road. It’s a rare opportunity that most of us would grab when it comes. And that opportunity came to me a week ago. I was invited to come to Gyeongju to help out at an event. Along with my fellow volunteers, I helped validate and gave admission wristbands to foreign visitors. It was a lot of fun. I did not even realize how fast the time went.
When we were almost done with our work, we were told that we can watch the show. I was really happy.
Excited, we did not mind the rain. Thanks for the free raincoats given to us. The show has already started when we got inside. So we just look for a good spot and started watching the performance. It seemed like the rain did not stop the crowd from having fun and enjoying the show. I could hear them screaming, whistling and applaud in unison. I could also hear some overwhelmed girls crying while their beloved idols are on stage performing.
The performers during the Gyeongju Music Bank include EXO-CBX, BTS, B.A.P, BTOB, SHINEE, TWICE, Momo Land, VIXX, VICTON, etc. Kyuhyun of Super Junior was also there.
I really enjoyed the show and I was glad I got a chance to see it. I am looking forward to seeing more K-pop shows in the future. For now, I just would like to reminisce the memories of my first K-pop experience. I still can not believe it happened just like that.
I even got a chance to talk to Momo Land and take selfies with them.
It was surely one of my memorable experiences here in South Korea.
