I finally succumbed to the Korean wave fever this year, and have been happily occupied with K-drama (Caution: they’re absolutely addictive – don’t start, you’ll find it hard to stop!) and Kpop such as Big Bang and 2NE1. I was hence naturally happy when SM Town announced Singapore as one of the stops for its 2012 World Tour – it means I can see all the popular Kpop acts at one go, yay.
24,999 others joined me at the concert at The Float @ Marina Bay, with some die-hard fans queuing one week in advance to secure the best places at the mosh pit. The four-hour long concert saw S.M. Entertainment’s artistes f(x), Kangta, TVXQ, Super Junior, Girl’s Generation, SHINee, BoA and EXO belting out a record 50 songs. Even the rain and cranky, humid weather couldn’t fizz out the excitement of the fans, and the massive production included a huge multi-tiered stage, water effects, pyrotechnics and fireworks. I must say this was the most value-for-money concert ever, given the number of artistes, stage production, duration and the effort the artistes put into performing(I felt tired just watching them). It was also the first ever concert that I persevered to sit through the rain, which was so heavy at a point it felt like sitting under a waterfall. Definitely a concert I will remember!
