Originally, I had a plan. A good plan. A plan that made total sense at the time. My favorite moments at KCON, my favorite photographs taken all happened at the same time. GDRAGON–serious swoon time ladies. So wouldn’t it make sense to leave it until the very end? Make it be my last KCON post? Apparently GD had some different ideas.
Not only is today (US today, Korea’s yesterday) is GDragon’s birthday. If that weren’t enough to force my hand, today is the 8th anniversary of BigBang. See? Of course I have to put my GD post today. Maybe I’ll save Lee Seung Gi for last. I took some mighty fine pictures of Lee Seung Gi.
Ahem. Don’t answer that.
This guy is all attitude he knows it, the crowd knew it, and even the random non-kpop fans working the event knew it. Which is okay, because he has the talent to back it up. His set was amazing! I am so happy and incredibly lucky to have had a second chance to see him perform in person.
As the giant banners came down, hiding the stage, then opened, revealing him high above the stage?
I freaked out. Now, I’m a concert screamer (I can’t help it, something just comes over me) but with GDragon? My screaming turned almost frantic. It’s possibly I cried a little bit. (And now I’m super embarrassed.)
Throughout the night, I kept seeing the battery of my new camera sink lower and lower. Lower and lower. I knew–I KNEW–I needed to not take anymore photos, I knew I needed to save everything I had left for GD. But then the impartial blogger part of me kept nudging me. Would it be fair to just leave out Teen Top because I don’t enjoy them? There are people who love them (although I don’t know any of them) and it’s wouldn’t be fair if I just skipped them. Hindsight?
I SHOULD HAVE SKIPPED THEM!!!
As totally anticipated, halfway through his set, my camera made the sad little noise, almost like a bllllip, and then turned off. It was almost at that moment that GDragon decided to come over to our side of the stage, sit down, and basically serenade just me and my friends. (Yes, just us.) And I no longer had the juice in the good camera to properly document it.
GDRAGON (I mean that as an expletive.) I could have wept.
I did have my phone tucked away and I was able to whip it out and snap some (substandard) shots. Well, I say substandard, but it’s still better than what I used to take. The god’s of Kdrama/Kpop were certainly looking down upon me when he chose that very section to sit down on–he didn’t do this on any other section of the stages. There was less than ten feet away from me and the snarling package of talent and sexy that is GDragon.
Even AutoAwesome loves GD–look at what it did for me:
Thank you AutoAwesome–you made my day.
Uhhhh…fudge that–come back soon GD!!!
Check out his set–literally watching it makes me want to experience it all over again!
