On October 9th, I went up to Seoul to attend the Asia Song Festival at Jonghap Stadium. It was a Wednesday, but I had the day off from work due to Hangul Day becoming an official red letter holiday this year. The concert itself was really good, featuring artists like: 2PM, Girl’s Day, Block B, ZE:A, Idiotape, Gem, MYMP, Crayon Pop, and EXO! It lasted from 7pm to about 10pm. I made it for the 11pm KTX and was back in Daejeon by midnight.
My bias for the night was definitely EXO. I recently became interested in them because of my students. I ended up buying more EXO merchandise than any 23 year old should ever have. I’ve since pawned off most of these items to one of my students (Jaehee) who loves EXO. The best part of the night was my seat. I decided to treat myself to VIP seats so I was in the 8th row from the front. I heard the concert is being aired on KBS on the 25th… perhaps I will see myself?
I also took a lot of videos. Will post those someday!
