This was actually filmed months ago, right after the iKON debut concert.

Chloe and I are a similar age (which is older than the average Kpop fan) but lately have been going to some Kpop concerts. They are so fun and I find I enjoy music a lot more when I’m older and married and just don’t care what people think and I’m not going to cry because I can’t date my “oppa”. In fact, I don’t have any “oppas”! I’m older than all of them…. hahaha…

We’ve mentioned scalpers in another video but there are always so many scalpers in Korea and they manage to buy up a lot of tickets. If you are going to buy tickets from a scalper, Hugh recommends waiting because prices they quote will likely go down the nearer the concert gets.

Another thing we talked about, but had to cut because of time, was that things can be exaggerated about what concerts are like. Never believe gsirl who were right at the front who says things like “The whole concert was sooo dangerous! So many girls fainted! Everyone was squished in!” The experience in the first few floor rows is vastly different to people in seats or even those just a few meters away on the floor. Most people are sitting in seats and are fine. Of course it’s hectic right at the front. Of course girls have to be pulled over the barrier, of course someone will faint. You don’t have to be right at the front though – you aren’t forced to be there! I just wanted to make a point of that because if you do see tweets or headlines like that, it’s because it’s more attention grabbing. Like the iKON concert where they had to stop the concert in the middle because of the crowd for 10 minutes. They were just being extra careful, so that it didn’t get too dangerous. The way it can then be talked about online is often exaggerated. With all due respects to my friends that do work in media and for Kpop sites, I know what you do to get the clicks…
