K-POP Poseidon Concert 2013.02.14 8PM
CAST: TVXQ, Super Junior KRY, ZE:A, Choi Shiwon, Lee Siyoung
WHERE: Ilsan KINTEX Exhibition Hall 5
This concert, comparatively to others I’ve been to here in Korea, was way too short for how much we paid for it. The cheapest seats were W100,000 ($92) and the most expensive was W250,000 ($230). The concert was about 2 hours long and each group only sang about 4 songs with short ments from each. I think I would have felt less annoyed if the groups had interacted with each other, even if it was just for a bit at the end. I was looking forward to some ChangKyu interaction, but was severely denied.
Not that the boys themselves weren’t perfect. They were more than perfect, I’m just disappointed I wasn’t able to enjoy their perfection for longer.
I loved Super Junior KRY’s suits and their voices are perfect and yes, I’m very bias when it comes to my boys. Their stage was very sparkly and suited them well. I was unfortunately trying to get back to my seat during Kyuhyun’s solo so I wasn’t able to enjoy it as much as I would have liked to.
Shiwon’s little segment was next with Lee Siyoung. They spent what felt like hours talking about their drama. I, myself, have no cares about Kdramas whatsoever, so I was bored to tears listening to them go on about it.
I don’t know much about ZE:A except what I’ve seen of them in passing. The only two people I know is Dongjun and Hyungsik if only because I’ve trolled Dongjun before and Hyungsik did that musical with Ryeowook. After watching their performance for the concert, I really wish I had the energy to become a fan. I enjoyed their charisma and their songs are quite catchy.
Last but not least was TVXQ. As per usual, they threw their everything into their performances and never disappoint me with their energy. My favourite is Changmin and he had a lot of smiles during their ment.
What helped a lot for this concert was the fact that they had a Japanese translator. Many of the fans were Japanese and it made it easier for some of us to understand what was going on.
Overall, I felt like they could have done less Shiwon and more group interaction. Or at least charged less.
