Unforgettable K-Pop Night!

안녕하세요! Hello all! I'm back again after quite some time! (>.<) I'm sorry for always been M.I.A (Missing In Action) Huihuihui 미안해요!

Anyway, for this time entry I would like to share with all of you about an event that I went to recently in Seoul, South Korea. Yeah, you heard me, S-E-O-U-L = Seoul! The place where the K-Pop world was born! Wohoo! Gosh I am so excited right now even while I'm writing this entry! Teeheehee! *please excuse my excited feelings as I am always like this* v(>.<)v

Alright, I better cut the nonsense input PRONTO! Hehehe.

FYI, I have been selected as one of the K-Performance Supporter under the Event Team of Korea Tourism Organization . As for that,  I have received an invitation from them to attend a "Thank You & Welcome Party" at Gangnam K-POP Concert Hall that was held on 5th April 2013 ! WOAH! *monkey dance moves activated* .. 

Even though I am currently still living in Malaysia (since I will only going to live in Seoul probably after September 2013).. I just got to take this chance once and for all since I know that this kind of opportunity will be for selected individual only. So yeah, I flew all the way from Malaysia on the 3rd April 2013 to Seoul, South Korea just to attend the event! Do you think I was crazy for doing it? I think I am but I don't care because this is what I always wanted to participate myself into. Oh yeah! *fist punch \m/.\m/*

*To infinity and beyond!*

This event was held to welcome the new K-Performance Supporters for Season 2 and also to appreciates all of the hard works of K-Performance Supporters for Season 1 ! WOAH! And want to know more? There was even a K-POP Concert for all the members to enjoy after the party! DOUBLE WOAH! 

Just an extra information for you...*teeheehee I like to share any info if I have one so just bear with me, OK?* ... FYI, The Gangnam K-POP Concert Hall is usually for new K-POP Stars to perform and show their talents to the audience! And upon knowing about this, I was jumping happily because I am a K-POP fan! You can even call me a K-POP fanatic because that's what I am hehehe \(>.<)/

On the day of the event, I arrived quite late (well, maybe about 20 minutes late? HAHA) since I was lost in searching for the event venue building! But thank goodness I've met 4 lovely ladies that were in the same situation as I was! So we went to search for the building and managed to find it after asking people around... YAY! 

*These were the 4 lovely ladies that I met on my way to the event venue*

And my goodness, the event left me speechless since I didn't expect it to be so grand-looking! The organizer even gave me my own name tag! The tables were arranged very nicely and the food were Korean Style Buffet! I was even mesmerized when I saw all of the other event members! Everybody came from all parts of the world! Also, I got to meet Nur Thania, Rabeah Adawiyah, and Hassan Abid (he came late so no picture of him ^^) for the first time at the event! 

*I was amazed!*

*The dinner was so fabulous!*

*I have my own name tag! Love it!*

During the dinner party time, there was a speech given by the Korea Tourism Organization's representative in Korean. The representative speech gave me motivations to be a best K-Performance Supporter! I felt more motivated after a Season 1 K-Performer Supporter, Mr Fakhar Khan from Pakistan received the winning prize worth of KRW 500,000.00 for his hard work! Oh my, that is sure a lot of money! We were then took some group photographs with all of the members together with the Korea Tourism Organization's staffs *teeheehee everybody was trying hard to squeeze into the picture (>.<)*

Anyway, I was so excited with everything until I forgot to eat the food that I put on my table! *when everyone else was hurriedly to the concert hall after the dinner party, I was still trying to finish my meal in a rush accompanied by my friend, Rabeah Adawiyah. Hehe thank you dear!*

*I almost forgot to eat my food! HAHA!*

We were been given a ticket by the organizer as we need it to enter the concert hall. At this point, I was super excited and was so ready to have fun throughout all of the performances!

Anyway, below were the line-up of artists for that night:

  • ARIA

*This is ARIA and I really love their music!*

  • F1RST


*This is F1RST. They were so good! Love their songs! 


*This is N-Sonic. Their dance moves were awesome!*

  • GORILLA CREW (B-Boy Dance Group)

*This is one of the members of GorillaCrew B-Boy dance group. They danced so fast ! I was lucky to snap this pose i think HAHA!*


*I am super in love with these girls especially the middle one! They were so friendly & even acknowledged me when I sang the last part of the 'Shabang Shabang' song hehe*

  • G-IAM

*This group is an eye-catcher! Wink ! Wink!*

Seriously, I had so much fun during all of the performances! I even sat on the carpet floor just to take good videos and pictures! And I shifted my seating place from the left side of the stage to a front stage seat just to get a closer view of all of the fun time! At the front stage seat, I was sitting next to Rebecca Bredin and both of us were really enjoyed and laughed a lot throughout the night! 

As for the performers, for me they were all very friendly and were trying their very best to interact with the audience which was good. Even though there was a bit of a language barrier challenge moment to some of the performers, I shall salute them for their determination in giving the best performance to the audience! *ClapClapClap* I hope they will be well-recognized in the K-Pop industry soon just like their seniors! ^^

*Some of the new friends that I've met at the event. Here in this picture are Rabeah Adawiyah , Nur Thania, Lolyta and others ^^*

Overall, Awesome Venue, Delicious Food, Good People, Fabulous Performances ... what else could I  ask more? That night was a blast! I had super fun with my new friends and gained a lot of new experiences too! *I even left my jacket and my mobile phone cover in the concert hall! Thank God both items were still there when I went back into the hall to check about it! HAHAHA!* 

Til we meet again on my next event! Lots Of Love! (>.<)
