If you know me or have read my other blog posts, you know that I am a big KPOP fan. In fact, it’s what made me start learning Korean and was one of the factors that led me to study aboard in South Korea. Being a long time KPOP dan, I have seen many groups debut and have fallen in and out of love with many of them. I’ve had my phases, just like everyone else. However, there is one group that I have followed from the beginning of their career. B.A.P, which stands for Best Absolute Perfect (cheesy name, I know), debuted in January of 2012 with “Warrior” as their title track. I was instantly attracted to their music which was hip hop but rougher and more exciting. From then, I followed them through their growth. I watched them experiment with new concepts and listened to them mature in their music style. I made it my dream to go see a B.A.P concert, whether it was in Korea or elsewhere.
And tonight, my dream came true! I bought tickets to see the start of their world tour, Party Baby. I was excited every day leading up to the concert as I knew I would have fun. And I did, indeed. Since it was my first concert ever, I was unsure what to do and where to go, but once it started I knew exactly when to sing along and when to scream at the top of my lungs. The concert lasted 2 hours, and I was standing the whole time. At times my legs and feet hurt, but that was quickly replaced with excitement from the music and performances.
I wish I remembered how many songs they performed and what they were, but I was just too overwhelmed by the fun atmosphere to take notice. We were not allowed to take pictures, but the rebel side of my broke the rules and secretly took some pictures, although they are very low quality. Better something than nothing right?
This was definitely a new and fun experience. I’m glad that I was able to see B.A.P perform at least once in my life. I’m glad that my first concert was of my favorite, and I’m glad that such a great group as B.A.P exists (wow hardcore fangirl much?? lol). I definitely will look for more opportunities to see them again!
