The 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic G-100 Concert was my first K-pop concert! This was a very memorable one since I got to attend where the heart of k-pop music is. Ever since we landed in SK, my sister would always bring up this event because she wanted to see EXO. This was held in the open grounds of Gwanghwamun Square and the concert was for free! And one of the best things in life are the things that come for free~ 🤩
When we were in the subway station, we can already hear the music. I was excited and my sister who was very excited, started screaming and rushing! I was like ‘chill bruh’ but as I got nearer, the music got louder and I became very excited and came rushing as well hahaha.
We got to see BTS, Twice and EXO perform. BTS was really good at performing that even from afar their movements were seen. For Twice, I did not know them during that time. I searched about them online, weeks after our trip and it was cool ’cause the song ‘Likey’ which they performed at the event, was released 2 days before (Oct. 30) G-100 concert. 😃 EXO was the last group to perform and everybody went crazy! Well, maybe not all but most of us haha. It was amusing to see two adorable high school girls in front of us passionately singing and screaming at the top of their lungs for EXO. 😊 My sister and I cheered hard!
I admire how the staff and security kept the event organized given that it was for free and in an open area.
So NCT became my favorite group just this early 2018. While browsing the concert photos, I was surprised when I saw Mark in the picture! NCT was also there. *my heart 😆*
A man from SBS (he was wearing an ID) approached us while taking photos after the concert and gave us torch-like lightsticks. He kept giving lightsticks to random people and came back to us to give the remaining so we each got a pair of lightsticks! Gamsahamnida Ahjussi~
We strolled around the place with the slight hope to see kpop artists but even if we did not, we found the wonderful video projection on the high walls of Gyeongbokgung Palace.
