[Event Coverage] Hottest Night at 2018 Leisure Chuncheon KPOP Mega Concert
We were in Chuncheon, the capital city of Gangwon Province, South Korea last Saturday for 2018 Leisure Chuncheon KPOP Mega Concert.
Held at Songam Sports Town Main Stadium on August 25, 2018 Leisure Chuncheon KPOP Mega Concert brought the best lineup to the town as SHINee, Ailee, Nu’est W, B.A.P, Gugudan were among the artistes lined up for the night!
The concert started at 7.30PM, right after the inauguration speech and launching ceremony. Rookie group, Nature was the opening act of the night, followed by vocal group Vromance, and girl group Baba.
Trot is another genre of Korean Music which is enjoyed by all ages. Fans were on their feet as everyone was excited to sing-along to the hit trot songs performed by legendary trot singer, Kim Yeon Ja and Park Hyunbin.
The screams got louder as Ailee came out and performed her hits such as You and I, Don’t Touch Me, Atmosphere and OST from the famous K-drama Goblin, I Will Go To You Like The First Snow. No doubt, her live vocals were top-notch!
B.A.P performed for the crowd for the first time without their leader, Bang Yongguk as he announced his departure from the group a few days before due to his contract’s expiration.
Even though we can listen to Yongguk’s part in B.A.P’s songs, Himchan, Daehyun, Youngjae, Jongup and Zelo tried their best to fill the void with perfect performances. The boys performed their popular songs such as Skydrive, Wake Me Up, Angel (1004), Wild Young & Free and Carnival.
Up next was trending girl group Dream Catcher, who performed Sleep-walking, Chase Me, Fly High and more.
Girl group power is then continued with Gugudan! Only 6 members were present at the concert, but they still managed to catch fans’ attention with A Girl Like Me, The Boots and Chococo.
Make ways girls, its time for the boys! Nu’est W consisting of Jonghyun, Ren, Baekho and Aron stole the screaming crowd’s hearts with Dejavu, Polaris, Hello and Where You At.
The highlight of the night was hot boy group, SHINee. We saw the lightsticks of SHINee all over the stadium! This was our first time watching SHINee as group of 4 members.
It was bittersweet to see a member missing but we’re glad that the other 4 was still strong enough to perform on stage. SHINee performed 5 songs including Beautiful, Aside and Our Page.
The concert ended around 10.30PM and boy, we had so much fun!
