MBLAQ definitely knows how to put on a show. Hours after it was over I was STILL jamming to the songs in my head. Though the stage effects and props were minimal, the performances were strong and fierce. One would definitely see that Rain has taught them well.
I arrived at the venue around 3pm after first going to the wrong venue. The two main concert venues in Seoul both have extremely similar names that people give nicknames to also so it's always confusing for me. Another confusing thing was that the Shinee World concert was going on at the same area at the same time but at a different venue. Shinee had the stadium and MBLAQ had the hall. So when I got there all I saw were Shinee sticks and pink everywhere. I was thinking "Dang did I get mixed up on the venue AGAIN?" Luckily minutes later I spotted some foreigners who I asked where MBLAQ was. It happened that they were there for MBLAQ too so they lead me to the Olympic hall about a 5 minute walk away from where we were. I quickly spotted the short Interpark global waiting line and got my ticket. My first goal was to grab all the free stuff that they give out at concerts and buy some official merchandise. As I was walking I spotted a girl in my periphial vision that was looking at me. I wondered if I possibly knew her from somewhere or something. Seconds later she slowly came up to me and asked "Are you on Youtube?" I was like "Haha Yes, Whoa!" Come to find out she was a fan of my Youtube videos. Her name was Aisha and her friend was Marie who are currently studying abroad for 3 weeks.

|Of course I had to make slight adjustments to my sign. LOL.|
The most shocking thing was that they came into the audience and ran everywhere. GO and Joon came to the section where I was sitting and just walked up the steps right in front of us like it wasn't anything. GO even ran in the middle of the standing section a few times. Those boys are crazy and love their fans dearly. :)
Overall the show was excellent. Full of energy and love. Thunder's sister Dara came and new Kpop group A-Prince (which everyone thought was the other new Kpop group MyName.) See that right there means there are too many dang Kpop groups! We can't keep count. Lol
Also watch the video for a chance to win one of 3 MBLAQ posters and fan merchandise! Contest ends August 7th.
