We Love You Korea – the 2008 Dream Concert

[singlepic=497,450,450]
Intrigued! “We Love You Korea” is this year’s banner of the Dream Concert. The show features top Kpop entertainers like TVXQ, Super Junior, Epik High, Wonder Girls and MC Mong. I haven’t heard of this “yearly” concert until this time. Is it because I’m not super interested in attending a concert populated by teens? I was at the Asian Song Festival last year and I barely enjoyed the show because of the screaming fans of the singers/groups that participated in the event. The mostly-teen aged fans even wore color-coded shirts according to their fan clubs.

Unlike the Asian Song Festival, the Dream Concert isn’t 100% free. There’s a 30,000 won admission for souvenirs. Good thing is that it isn’t expensive and the bonus is there are a lot of popular performers attending. The venue is the Olympic Stadium in Seoul, which can accomodate 40,000 (screaming) fans.

The event is on June 7, after the June 6 holiday. We have a 3-day weekend again and I’m sure we’re going to travel somewhere. (Unfortunately, I don’t have a notebook computer and I wouldn’t be able to update my blog on those days.) Hmm seems like this is the best date to visit Seoul for kpop fans.

  1. ^^ you might enjoy it you’re a teener… i couldn’t stand the screams anymore… i’m way pass that age… LOL

  2. I don’t enjoy concerts in general. And frankly, the performances are usually nothing to write home about… I’ve just had a bad experience maybe?

    I do enjoy live performances of other things, such as dances and even the Xmas Spectacular they have in Rockefeller every year. But lip-synched, bubblegum-pop, seizure-inducing colors never really fared well with me, haha.

    Teens are weird! We should beat some sense into them, hehe.
