As KCON is now a mere day away, BTS is two days away, my terrible, terrible seats loom out in front of me, and my BTS obsession is at an all-time high (we’re at Threat Level FIRE, I’m going to need someone to Save Me soon) I took to looking at my first BTS experience back at my very first KCON in 2014. Oh how young they were! Oh, how lucky I was with my seats.
These pictures are even more special because I haven’t actually looked at them since probably about the time I took them — back when I was a big fan of BTS the group, I knew who Rap Monster was, but I had no idea who the rest of the members were — there was no (some might say sickening levels of) huge fandom. Now that I know all the members? And love every single one of them? The pictures are even more special and exciting. So, I thought I’d share.
Warning: Copious amounts of photos, copious amounts of fangirling dead ahead. I’m sorry. It’s now what I do.
Let’s start out with the red carpet. Yep. Turns out I saw them at the red carpet. I had a good spot. I literally completely forgot about this.
Look at how adorable they were, LOOK AT IT.
Not sure what Suga is doing here, but I have a feeling he’s trying very hard not repress his cranky-grandpa side.
Poor Jimin, apparently I had no idea how much I was going to like you in later years, as I seem to have cut you off on most pictures.
One of these days I will be one of those people with a press pass so I can randomly block others shots.
Moving onto the concert itself!
This is where my previous Rap Monster obsession starts to rear it’s ugly head.
Although, to be honest, it wasn’t so much a he was my bias situation, it was more a he was the only member I knew situation.
Plus, the hair made it easier to pick him out. (It’s still my favorite look of his.)
This one is hands down my favorite as it shows he is a sweaty, sweaty monster.
But hey, did you know there were *always* other members of the band?
I know! I was surprised too. (Please take note of Suga’s adorable facial expression. Yes. I said it. Suga is adorable.)
Look at Suga’s round little face. Don’t you just want to pinch those cheeks? (And then step back really fast before he bites you?)
Don’t tell Cherry, but I have a super soft spot for Suga.
He may try to seem all cranky and ‘I’m a cool rapper’, but we know better.
The last person I memorized from BTS was V. Taehyung.
The adorable little 4D bit of whatnot.
Not sure why I had such a block on him, but I’m just happy, whatever the cause, it’s gone now.
Just, if you see him, please don’t tell him, I feel for certain it would hurt his feelings…
And you know, you hurt one, you hurt them all. It’s just how it is.
And they could probably kick your butt.
As a well coordinated team.
Lately, I’ve been a big Hoseok fan. And taking a look, SURPRISE! I got some good shots of him.
Is it me or did he get the short end of the hair stick with the latest album look? His hair is much cooler here.
I’m also a huge Jimin fan — to which I apologize to past Jimin for — because I didn’t know. I didn’t pay enough attention to you. For that I’m very sorry.
Now, whenever I see him I shout out JIMIN! It’s an automatic response.
This was one of my more favorite finds: JIMIN abs! Look how hard he was trying to get my attention and I ignored him! Again, sorry Jimin.
What up, Jin?
Yep. I totes know who you are now. You and your buddy, JungKook.
I’ll see you on Saturday boys. Now, you won’t see me because I’ll be so far away. But I’ll be there.
Lurking. Fangirling. Enjoying like a mature adult.
