K-pop: An abbreviaton for Korean pop music.
Yesterday, my friends and I went to a concert which hosted a number of K-Pop groups including BEAST, MBLAQ and CN Blue. Let's just say my concert experiences so far in Hanoi are far from perfect. I thought I was either going to get mugged (which indeed happened to one of my poor friends - his iPhone was snatched right out of his pocket), or trampled while waiting outside (this was even before going into the concert hall) by a MOB of people who were trying to get in - despite not having tickets. People were literally pushing the gates, trying to get it to open and there were policemen waving around tasers trying to get people to move back. So after waiting about half an hour, we finally got in. Then, inside, the VIP area was full despite some of us having VIP tickets (including my family) as apparently there were people in there with fake tickets. I think my poor sister actually cried because she was so disappointed. Well, for one, how is that any of our problem since we had the actual, real tickets and two, it's just not worth it. We wasted some good money and ended up leaving early just because the organization was so bad.
Needless to say, the actual performances were SO AMAZING. I was still glad I could breathe the same air as them. Even though their faces were a blur. And it probably would've been better just to watch them on youtube in HD.
Second post soon with actual photos from the concert!
