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! 🙂
