This is my first time writing a fan account, so excuse me if I sound too fangirly. I missed the Bangkok press conference session on 26th, though I was in central world early in the morning to collect my concert tickets. When I reached there around 9.55am, there were already cassies sitting down waiting for them, despite the press conference was programmed to start only at 5pm!
As I had some issues with my tickets, I decided to try my luck down at the ticket booth in Impact Arena. The whole area was blocked as they were making preparations for the concert, but I managed to enter and talked to one of the backstage staffs about my problem. While waiting, I could hear jaejoong’s voice playing in the background. (I figured out that maybe they were testing the audio instead of the actual jj singing since I was there around 1.30pm – 2pm while DBSK arrived at Dusti Thani around 2.30pm?)
Day of the concert 270609:
I arrived at the venue around 3pm and the whole place was filled with DBSK fans, merchandises, pictures and even a Mirotic performance by a group of thai guys. Purchased a couple of Mirotic Bangkok goods and off we go. Security was tight as no cameras or video cameras were allowed, and I only managed to enter around 5.55pm. I was surprised at how small the venue was compared to what I’ve seen in pictures!
The highlight of the day for SC zone would definitely be Changmin. His voice is super good and during his solo Upon the Rock, my friend and I were like “OMG! Is that Changmin or junsu?” as we could not believe our ears. On contrary to rumors about Changmin standing out the least in concerts, this boy blew us off with his model appearance and modest attitude. During his second solo, Changmin was standing really close to us and we were screaming “Changmin! Changmin!” He looked around first, turned his head and our eyes met. He smiled and waved at us. I looked like a total maniac at that moment, screaming and waving both my hands. When the stand Changmin was on elevated, we continued to scream and Changmin looked at us again, this time face to face, smiling and waving. He’s drop dead gorgeous.
As expected from the leader, Yunho really does give fan service. He was friendly and interacted with the audiences. I was surprised at how strong his vocal was as compared on TV or videos, and needless to say, he’s better looking in real life. During his solo, Yunho sent out many gasps and screams by the audiences from the steamy dance he had with the dancer. However, Yunho tripped while walking up the steps for Balloons and I wondered if that was the reason why his leg was bandaged at the airport.
Yoochun seriously has split personality! As compared to the moody airport pictures, Yoochun brought life to the stage with his smile and we could see that he was hyper and enjoying himself. During his solo, Yoochun was interacting with the audience a lot in English, asking us what we wanted to hear, before playing Evergreen and Love Bye Love. As everyone knows, Yoochun appeared instead of Key from ShineE during Xiahtic and he had a steamy dance with one of the dancers. While he was walking in between AL and BL, his shirt flapped open and we could finally see some skin~ Yoochun’s features are really sharp and he does look exactly what you see on television. If I were rank the member most likely to get injured in DBSK, Yoochun would definitely beat others hands down. The first time was while he was walking back to the main stage, someone from AL zone threw a towel on his leg and he turned to look/glare at the person. The 2nd time was before the moving stage reached the main stage, Yoochun and Xiah jumped over the big gap to get back to the main stage. The 3rd time was when they were walking between AL and BL to thank everyone, someone from AL threw a micky mouse hand plushie and Yoochun tripped over it and held on to Yunho shoulder for support.
Junsu is really much better looking real life (what can we expect from the son of former Miss Korea!). His voice is really strong and his dance moves were just WOW! However, it seemed as though Junsu was concentrating more on his performance on that day, and it’s a pity we did not hear his classic laughter.
Jaejoong is much skinner than I expected in real life and he’s really fair. His voice is the best in the group though we cringed every time junsu, jaejoong and changmin sang high notes as we were very near to the amplifier. Jaejoong seemed to be a bit moody during the concert, giving only a few smiles, and when the fans in SC Zone were screaming for him, he continued to look on the floor instead. However, he did warm up a little nearing the end, touching the fans hands at SM Zone.
Well, for my conclusion of this concert, it was exactly the same as Mirotic concert in Seoul and to me, Rising Sun performance was the best. However, I find the stage setup a little dangerous for the boys, like for example the middle stage elevated up, and the boys had to jump down from it and run back to the middle stage. Moreover, a lot of time was wasted, waiting for the preparations. Nevertheless, I would definitely go for another DBSK concert, maybe in Korea or Japan. DBSK Hwaiting!
