Took my niece to SM Town Live on Saturday at Staples Center. I won’t go into details but there really was no way for me to say no. So there I was, with my swollen foot, waiting in line with 1000′s of teenyboppers. While the show wasn’t so bad after all, my butt and foot were in pain only after an hour or so. Had I known that it would last four hours, I probably would have tried everything in my power to let go of the opportunity. Anyways, it was great to see familiar faces in person nonetheless, especially being a fan of Kpop and all. It’s awesome that Kpop has gotten so popular that we are now able to rent a world renowned venue like Staples Center, but what amazed me most was the fact that more than half the audience was non-Korean, something nobody would have even imagined just 10 years ago. I felt bad that my niece didn’t have anyone else to take her, especially because it reminded me of when I was her age. I was beyond obsessed with certain Korean artists and used to get really sad when nobody would take me to these concerts. With no further ado, here are some pics for your enjoyment:
Waiting. Can you tell that I was bored out of my mind? hehe, actually it really wasn’t so bad because I got to sit down while others stood in line for almost an hour. Oh, the benefits of being temporarily disabled.
On a side note, I heart my Ray-Ban Aviator. I got them earlier this year at discount only to be reunited with them at Club Monaco the following week. See why I call myself a trendsetter? lol
You know what was absolutely hilarious? The kids were so excited that they would scream every time somebody would pass by inside the building. They were literally lined up outside the building looking through the window, waiting for someone to pass by. They would scream at staff, yeah you heard me right, not the celebrities themselves, but staff. what the heck, totally uncool. and you know I’m only saying this because I got fooled too. haha
What the place looked like before people started pouring in.
After. The place was completely packed. I couldn’t believe my eyes. @.@
There was a bunch of people in red or hot pink sitting near the stage. At one point, I thought they were going to kill each other when SNSD and Super Junior came out. OMG. total madness.
SNSD performing “Tell Me Your Wish.” In case you are curious, my favorite is Tiffany. I found it cute that she confessed that she was nervous. haha
Boa performing Energetic. She was fantastic except for a sound system malfunction that caused her to stop in middle of a performance. I couldn’t help but think that she’s high maintenance considering her reaction. Instead of continuing the performance, she demanded a fix. Perhaps it’s too much to ask, but if she has performed the same song 100 times, shouldn’t she be able to do it without hearing herself?
Towards the end of the show, my foot and butt were screaming, “Get me out of here!!!”
Just a little photo of me and hubby. <3
Well, that’s all for this post. Hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend.
