Got my FT Island concert tickets today to FT Island’s first solo US concert!  I am so excited!!! Apparently, the tickets are selling really well!  Look at what Hong Ki tweeted:

Anyone else going to the concert and want to meetup?  I have organized a small gather with fans last time and hope to meet some of the primadonnas this time around as well.  Please comment below and let me know.

 

 

Hi Primadonnas,

Just read on Hong Ki’s twitter that FT Island is coming to Los Angeles for a concert on January 30, 2015.  They will also be going to New York before Los Angeles and their concert will be on January 28, 2015.   OMG!  YEAH!!! I know I have met with some of you last time when they came to LA.  Who is going this time?

Please leave me a comment and let me know you want to go to concert too!  I want to meet some of you again in this concert so we can cheer them on!

 

Hey all readers of Korean through Lyrics,

I am so happy! I just got my tickets to FT Island and CN Blue’s concert in Los Angeles! YEAH!!!

I got up early just to make sure I log in at 10am PST. At first I got on Ticketmaster.com because I am very familiar with them. At 9:58am, it still says tickets are not available so I was patiently waiting untill 10am. I just kept refreshing the page or went to the home page and searched again. Finally when it came back with availability, it showed 3 VIP packages to choose from: Diamond VIP ($375), Platinum VIP ($85) and Gold VIP ($75). But the funny thing was the last two VIP packages did not include tickets. I wasn’t sure what’s going on and I had to choose one of the packages and click on “Find Tickets.” I didn’t know what to do but no matter which package I chose it didn’t have any. I am so confused. Since I was so eager to get the tickets, I decided to go to POWERHOUSELIVE.net.

FT Island and CN Blue’s concert icon is right at the center.

Cool! So I clicked on it and it showed me the ticket prices. Finally, something I could understand. So I picked the price and headed to fill out the rest of information to purchase the tickets. OK, so far so good! When I clicked on “Process Order” it took a long time to update the page, eventually it said “error processing.” OMG! So I clicked “Process Order” again. Same thing happened! Long processing time and came back with error. So I decided to try Ticketmaster again! Finally somehow I got to a page where I could see the ticket prices. So I was ordering there. I tried to see what’s best available at the time and the most expensive ones are gone! The best were the $150 tickets. Anyway, I ordered my tickets and I realized the total is higher than ordering on Powerhouselive.net because Ticketmaster charges a higher convenience fee and processing fee. It’s actually double that of Powerhouselive.net. So I tried to order on Powerhouselive.net again. You know, I have to juggle two pages open at the same time and see which one got me the tickets first. However, Powerhouselive.net kept having processing error and in the end I just went with Ticketmaster even they had higher fees.

I am glad that I got the tickets. I guess there must be a lot of people trying to buy on Powerhouselive.net and it just couldn’t handle the load. Ticketmaster has a higher fee but maybe that’s part of handling the traffic that they get on a daily basis. I don’t know. I am trying to not think about the higher fees and just focus on the fact that I am going to see FT Island! ^^

Anyway, you know how excited I am now. For those of you that are going, please leave me a comment and let’s meet up. For those that are not, you know for sure I will cover it here. Also follow me on Twitter as I will cover it live there during the concert. (^.^)

OK, now I have to prepare for the concert so expect lessons to come soon. I have to beef up my Korean so I can understand what they say at the concert. How exciting! ^^

Hi primadonnas of Korean Through Lyrics,

I wish you enjoyed the videos that I posted yesterday. There are actually more. This concert seems very nice. I wish I was there. Too bad I don’t understand what they were saying. If any Japanese primadonna can help us translate, that would be great! 😉

Hong Ki seems to be very fluent in Japanese already!

Jaejin singing, love it! This is a very nice song!

I hope you enjoy all these nice videos. Please comment and let me know how you like them.

Hi all,

I am so excited that a fan of FT Island has written a guest blog for us to tell us the first hand experience of the recent Beautiful Journey Concert! It happened the first weekend of November and for those of us who couldn’t get there, this concert sounds really exciting. Let’s see what the experience is like:

The concert was held on 6 and 7 Nov (Sat and Sun) in AX Hall in Seoul. 1st level was for standing only, seats were on 2nd level. I bought standing tickets for both nights as I could be closer to the stage than being seated on the 2nd level. I booked the tickets over the internet (Interpark Korea) about 2 weeks before the concert.

Sat night, concert was at 7pm. I arrived at 6pm, collected my ticket from the booth that said “Foreigners”, lined up outside according to the ticket entry number and we were let in at 6.30pm. I was very happy to see that AX Hall was not a very big place. So even though my ticket entry number was 200 plus, I wasn’t far from the stage. I was in the section at the left cos my fave Seung Hyun is always on the left side of the stage.

Finally, at a few minutes past 7, the concert began. There was a giant cloth screen covering the front of the stage. We could hear each of them taking turns to play the music instruments but we could only see their silhouettes. Then Hong Ki’s silhouette appeared and then the giant cloth dropped to the floor and we could see the 5 of them on stage! SCREEEEEEEEEEAM!!! I couldn’t believe I was finally seeing them in person! They look exactly as they look like in pictures and on screen. SOOOOOO CUTE!!

The 1st song was Don Quixote’s song from their Beautiful Journey album and it got everyone very high. Hong Ki’s voice was so powerful! There were a few songs that I didn’t know the titles of, but all the songs were very very nice. The more special ones to me were:
First Kiss– Seung Hyun sang the 1st verse ( I almost melted), then Hong Ki continued with the English version (Always Be Mine) and SH harmonised with him. It was fantastic.
Baby Love– Min Hwan sang the 1st verse, SH sang 2nd verse, HK sang chorus and the rest of the song.
Love Sick and Kojimal– Seung Hyun rapped so well and he looked so cool! And Hong Ki’s vocals were out of this world.

There was a slow song that HK sang that was really beautiful and Jong Hoon did a piano solo at the start of it. Wish I knew the title but I caught the Korean words “first love” in the song. Do they have a song called First Love?

The other songs that I know the title:
Sarangi Wanabwa, Calluses, Bad Woman, SarangSarangSarang, I Believe Myself, Brand New Days, I hope, Bing Bing Bing. The last song was Flower Rock.

Hong Ki also sang a short English song while strumming an acoustic guitar. He’s so talented! Sunday night’s concert, he didn’t do this guitar solo thing, but 2 guys came and rapped with him. I later found out that they are known as the Supreme Team, but I’ve never heard of them. So the 2 concerts were the same except for this part.

What they wore was also very simple but smart — black jacket over T-shirt and skinny pants. SH and HK took off their jackets after a few songs. When they came back for the encore, they were more casual. HK in black sweater with skull, SH in black sweater that said I Love NY, JJ in white sweater with a cute blue and pink pattern. Couldn’t really see what MH and JH were wearing cos they were further away from me.

After the concert, there were some official merchandise on sale inside the building and there were some unofficial ones outside.
I bought stuff from both as well as from a shop in Myeong-dong that sells CDs, DVDs and all sorts of things with Korean celebrities. So besides FT Island things, I also bought a Jang Geun Suk calendar and notebook from this shop.

Looking thru the bits of video that I took, I really enjoyed the song Sarangi Wanabwa. It was sung by all 5 of them. They took turns to sing parts of it and Seung Hyun rapped. He did some hand actions and looked really adorable, especially when he smiled. Sigh…..
