Hi everyone! This is my fan account for Gfriend's 1st Mini Concert in Taiwan on July 9, 2017. I'm a Canadian Buddy, and I was already planning to travel to Taiwan for vacation from mid-June to the beginning of July. When I first heard that Gfriend would be having a mini-concert in Taiwan around this time, I was really excited that I might have the chance to go! Then, the date of the mini-concert was finally announced: July 9. WHAT?!?! That was the day I would be leaving Taiwan!!! Luckily, I was able to change my flight and leave 1 day later, just so I would be able to attend the mini-concert. This would actually be my second time seeing Gfriend. The first time was at Toronto Kpop Con in May 2016, where I attended their fanmeeting and participated in the hi-touch event. This was before their Navillera and Fingertip comebacks, so I was excited to see the newer songs performed live and experience what a Gfriend mini-concert was like. --- Buying Tickets --- --- The Day of the Mini-Concert --- --- The Mini-Concert Pt. 1: Memorable Moments --- --- The Mini Concert Pt. 2: Song-by-Song + Fan Events --- --- After the Mini-Concert --- --- Final Thoughts ---
Shadownet posted a topic in Fan AccountsMay 31, 2017, South Korea I was in South Korea visiting for the first time since I immigrated to Canada in 1996. I have never been back since...until this year. May 31: we were staying obviously in Seoul and their festival performance was in Daejeon, which was about 2-3 hour train ride from Seoul Station to Daejeon. No big deal: I've had transit commutes in Vancouver that were just as long and Vancouver is 1/3 the size of Seoul! I was worried because a Korean friend of mine said some university festivals were not open to public and restricted to university students, family, and faculty staff. This worried me greatly so after digging deep into where to contact the university, I found their Facebook page and messaged them regarding my situation: I was a foreigner from Canada wanting to see GFriend and was wondering if this university's festival performance was open to public. Luckily, they said yes, it's open to all and they wished me well on my trip! Awesome! So, fast forward to May 31. I had injured my ankle the day before so I went to an acupuncture clinic before leaving for Daejeon to kind of relieve the pain on my ankle. They wrapped it in a bandage lining so the ankle wouldn't move too much but I was still able to walk properly. My dad said he'd go with me because he didn't want me to get injured or lost (oh please...I was the one with unlimited data SIM in Korea...) So after this, we headed straight for the Seoul Station that housed the KTX trains. When we got to Daejeon at around 5:30pm, we took a taxi from Daejeon Station to Hannam University. There, we encountered a lot of security and parking lot staff but they didn't pay us too much attention. Mind you, there were also kids and children attending this festival which also meant there were a ton of parents as well. We ate dinner at a nearby restaurant but my appetite wasn't there because in four hours, I'd be seeing GFriend for the first time! I parted ways with my dad who wanted to explore the university and the nearby areas while I headed for the field where they had set up the stage and lights. They were performing last at around 9pm so I would have to wait 3-4 hours to see them. However, knowing that there would be a flood of other fans, kids, and children, I had to make a choice either to shiver in the cooler weather in the second "row," or stay at the coffee shop where it was nice and warm but lose my good spot. So. I forced myself to stand for 3-4 hours. I brought a hoodie, but, man, the Korean weather is nothing like Vancouver weather. It kept raining to sunshine, to rain, to sun, and when the sun set, it was just cold. I stood on stage right. Bad choice. You'll see why. The whole festival performance was a sad rendition of King of Masked Singer where everyone sang a ballad which, go figure; Koreans love their ballads and sad crap. While that was going on, I was just streaming the Stanley Cup Playoffs on my phone with LTE data because, as I mentioned before, I had bought a prepaid unlimited Data SIM at Incheon International Airport after landing in Korea. I was also just listening to my own music (mix of GFriend, rock and roll, punk) just to kill the time. After their KOMS ended, there was another artist who took the stage, whose name was Kim Gyung Hyun, who was a part of a Korean band called "The Cross." I've never heard of them so I wasn't expecting much, but when he took the stage, all the girls started screaming their heads off so I figured "oh no...not another one of those male artists!" But.. Nope. He impressed me. He sang a variety of his hit singles, such as "SNSD" (which was not made by SNSD, who merely covered it). The genres were a mixture of ballad, hip hop, and rock. There was no live band but he put on one heck of a show! I was thoroughly impressed and I'm disappointed I couldn't appreciate his performance enough to snap a few pictures or record some video clips. Then. 9pm rolled around. Out of the corner of the stage near the stands, I saw six female figures enter the dressing room tent that was set up on stage left. No one noticed because they were too busy focusing on Kim Gyung Hyun, but I muttered, "Oh, GFriend arrived." Two middle school girls looked at me, looked at the entrance, and their eyed widened. Then, the host introduced GFriends and the girls took the stage. Lights went off and the girls took their starting positions for their opening song, Me Gustas Tu. PERFORMANCE EMOTIONS CONTINUED IN PART II! Thanks for reading this long account! I guarantee Part II will be better because it will be filled with my emotions and thoughts!
As requested by fellow buddies, I am here to share my fanacc from the showcase in Singapore ! Before i start on the showcase day, I went to welcome the girls at the airport the day before and they looked GREAT. They were also surprised to see so many fans at the airport to welcome them ! I also managed to get a picture that SinB was looking into my camera! Now on to the actual day, because I was a vip ticket holder, I was entitled to a rehearsal pass of 2 SONGS, 2 SONGS WERE ENOUGH TO KILL US. However, we weren't allowed to cheer nor take pics tho. If you are wondering what were the 2 songs they were performing, it was 'Glass Bead' and 'Luv Star' ! At the end of the rehearsal, if i remembered correctly it was either yerin/sinb that said "See you in a minute!" cutely! Yuju also gave us a big heart and we all started to shout! This obviously, made me even more excited about the actual showcase! Moving on to the actual showcase, shouts and fanchants were loud for Gfriend and their live were SUPERB. MUSIC TO MY EARS LITERALLY. After that we had this talk segment for quite a while and guess what? GFRIEND PERFORMED A SHORT PART OF ROUGH DANCE AT 2X SPEED. From what I can remember, Sowon and SinB got alot of loud cheers from Buddies throughout the entire showcase! Moving on to the end, THE ENCORE STAGE (SUNSHINE). I CAN REMEMBER THIS THE MOST CLEARLY. The Gfriend members were throwing candies to Buddies and I CAUGHT ONE, AND IT WAS FROM MY BAE YUJU!!!! I was also recording a fancam of Yuju during this stage! After the showcase ended, I had hi-touch with the girls and I took this opportunity to thank Yuju for the candy! And when she saw me with the candy and thanking her, she smiled, I MELTED. I REPEAT. SHE SMILED. A GODDESS SMILED AT ME. After that, I went to the carpark to bid my final farewells to the girls, and when the van stopped at a point where I was at, I REMEMBER CLEARLY SINB WAVED AT ME AND MADE EYE CONTACT W ME. I also waved back to her and said bye. A pity I didn't go to the airport to send them off tho So, thats the end of my fanaccount of the Gfriend girls's showcase in Singapore! ^^ Definitely a unforgettable night and can't wait to see them soon!!
