[Take 1: EARTH] Green Plugged Festival

My only Boohwal concert on November~ lucky I can have it by the beginning of the month ^^

It’s [Take 1: Earth] for Green Plugged Festival. You can either see it as an anchor stage of the Green Plugged Festival held on May this year, or as promotion-stages for 2011 Green Plugged Festival to be held next year.

Starting from the [Earth] stage last Sunday, [Sun] [Moon] [Wind] [Sky] stages will proceed once a month prior to 2011 Green Plugged Festival (in Seoul).

(check out “comming” btw ~ hehe, the only reason I’m uploading the picture on the left :D)

.

There were 5 bands performing last Sunday (7 November 2010), starting from Gogo Boys (고고보이스). Their song titled “Disco in the Moonlight” is highly recommended~ ^^

(Their genre is rock on roll, kinda reminded me to the Beatles~ but honestly, they sound way better live than their album 🙂

The second stage was by Guckkasten (국카스텐). It was the second time I watched them live, and they sounded much better last night.

I was standing on 5th line from the stage (it was a standing concert) during these two bands performances, and I thought my ears could explode at anytime :p

The third and the fourth stages were by Daybreak and Monni (몽니). Daybreak is more of a jazz band, really smooth and easy listening. Monni was quite interesting, they have female bassist who looks bored the whole concert :p Sorry but I won’t post the pictures for this two coz they’re not really my style ^^;; This is already the most I’ve promoted on other band besides Boohwal here~ ^^

And finally, the final and main stage of the night, was Boohwal ~^^

Btw, by the time Boohwal showed up, I’ve moved to the third line from the front, and then the most front by the end of the stage ~ 😀 (Btw the concert was in a club, so it’s pretty dark, but if you see carefully there’s Jemin Oppa in the back between Dongha and Jae-Hyuck Oppas~)

As usual, they started the stage with  “코끼리 탈출하다” (Gabriel’s Obboe), followed with “Lonely Night”.

And then.. I can’t recall the order ^^;;

But Boohwal brough including “Thought” (생각이나), 1970, Someday, Heeya (rock version), Because I Love You (사랑해서 사랑해서), and Never Ending Story (anchor song).

Erm.. what else..  I hope I’m not missing any songs that they actually performed. Anyways, it felt so good. The last time I watch Boohwal’s live concert was over a month ago in the  beginning of October. Although I did meet JH Oppa earlier this week (coincidentally) ^^

The concert ended sometime before 10 pm, and I got to meet some other loyal fans so it was good~ ^^

Ow, now I remember, Boohwal also performed “The Story of You and the Rain” (비와 당신의 이야기), coz I had to go home in rain that night;;;

Rock, concert, Boohwal, Boohwal’s concert, always work like battery for me~ 🙂

Thanks for reading so far ~ ^^

As final picture, the thing Boohwal always do after their concerts~ ^-^

 

Boohwal in Green Plugged Festival

So, Green Plugged Festival. Just as my previous post, this is a last week happening ^^; Green Plugged Festival was a 2-days festival held on May 21st-22nd, in 노을공원 (Noul Park), which used to be a garbage dumping site, changed by the Seoul government (i guess..) to become this somewhat a nice park. No, no, don’t imagine flowers and butterflies, it’s basically just greens and some rather … not-so-friendly area ^^; Overall, I like the park for you can see Hangang (river) just lying wide, and on normal days there are barely people there.

Well, back to Green Plugged, the festival is held as an environmental campaign, so you can see how Noul Park is a perfect spot for it. The festival was for two days, and 115 bands, singers, bands, and musicians perform in 5 separate stages. The stages were: Earth, Sky, Moon, Sun, and Wind. All 5 stages were held simultaneously, so you gotta know who you’re coming to see and set up your schedule before hand.

I went to Boohwal’s concert on 21st, so I came to Green Plugged on 22nd of May, on which day Boohwal performed on EARTH STAGE starting 14.20 pm (3rd performer).

I arrived at Noul Park at around 1 o’clock, just as the first performer was wrapping up. I nicely sat as people started to leave the area (apparently they want to watch other stage performance). The band who performs before Boohwal was Buret, which was kinda good, but I couldn’t focus, coz I worried whether I should secure my spot earlier or not. From my seat, I moved to the right side of the stage which was guarded by staff, and nearing the front, I saw Seo Jae-Hyuck talking to someone!!!!

This picture below was actually taken after the stage, not before. He was actually closer to me before the stage, so I bowed (I’m such a polite fan, aren’t I?!) to him, and he waved at me!! 😉 (L-O-V-E H-I-M! lol :p) Soon, Chae Jemin joined him and the other guy, and I bowed again, this time heading to the drummer, and he also waved at me!! I LOVE THEM, REALLY! XD Some time after, Jeong Dong-Ha also approached them, but they all head back to the tents soon. When Jae-Hyuck Oppa waved at me, my friend was really surprised and excited she missed taking his picture (actually we took one, but the (guy who was talking with him)’s arm was on the way.. so..

So Boohwal stepped up the stage. Kim Tae-Won held by a guy (it was ascending^^;). I couldn’t grab the most front of the line, but I was second to front, and had practically clear access to all members of Boohwal so I ain’t complaining. Especially that Jae-Hyuck Oppa was right in front of me and he did see my way several times (or so I’d like to think :D)

They started with 사랑이란건, followed with 1970, Someday, and OZ. Three brilliant options, indeed. I was kinda sorry Jae-Hyuck Oppa didn’t do the same action he did the night before when playing OZ… _-_ㅋ

The concert continued with “Never Ending Story, and on the anchor call, they played 비와 당신의 이야기 (hm, I haven’t reviewed this song yet, haven’t I, I really should, and will! ^^). This time, Jae-Hyuck Oppa with his glasses and shirt on, I had my eyes on Tae-Won Oppa but his vocal wasn’t maximal that day – his guitar was ^^

They all went down the stage, and I got together with some more friends, still keeping an eye on the back stage. When we finally left to head for another stage, believe it or not, Boohwal was on two mini cars in front of us!!!! >_< So close, and no fans around!!!!! I could lose my mind, really >_< But due to my “civil fan” thingy (read: groggy) I couldn’t approach them. But Jemin Oppa was looking my way, so I yelled (said) “오빠 멋있어요!” and went on… Oh I hate myself.. -_-

I stayed in Green Plugged until the last stage that night. It was great, I was exhausted, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything else ^^ The last stage I watched was YB on the Sky Stage. They rock, too! ^_^

And, ow, did I tell you it started raining just about when Boohwal brought 비외 당신의 이야기? Yeah, as if the sky understood! -_-; It was chilly cold. But awesome! 🙂
