So I took my daughter to watch DAY6 when they stopped by our city a couple of weeks ago. Above is one of the few of my favorite videos captured of the evening. I had to grab SHOOT ME because it is currently a favorite of mine (and in heavy rotation on my playlists)!
I wasn’t prepared for the ticket sale date though – it passed by and I only remembered several days later. By the time I checked into Ticketmaster I wasn’t able to find two seats right next to each other. The best seats were row A and B of the 2nd half of the floor right in front of one another.
The venue wasn’t very large – most times it is used for our city’s orchestra performing various symphonies. For DAY6 this was perfect. The acoustics of the location was made for live bands. So our seats were really good! We both were right next to the aisle and my daughter had no row in front of her as there was a cross-section aisle across the ‘theatre-like’ layout. There was also no General Admission – which I actually thought was nice. No crazy line-ups to maneuver through and trying to figure out which line you’re supposed to be in… Sorry, my first k-pop concert with GOT7 was a bit of a nightmare as far as the venue disorganization goes.
DAY6 did an amazing job performing and entertaining the crowd. As usual, the group had prepared a VCR-ment (short large-screen video) to entertain their fans as they went back stage to change and freshen up. This occurred before their encore. The below video has the option of ENG SUB if you need them:
Because of where we sat, we were also in prime view during the encore when all the members (except Brian) came running down the aisle, most stopping right in front of my daughter. Jae even climbed onto the chairs in the middle across from her as he belted out some intense notes! My daughter also got to high-five Dowoon.
After the concert, we stayed in our seats to wait to be called by section for the Hi Touch experience. Yes – our very first Hi Touch! I honestly wasn’t expecting getting this with our P2 tickets. But it was a pleasant surprise. It took awhile for them to call our section and I’m thankful the organizers told us all before the concert (by email) to remain in our seats. This allowed us to rest rather than wait in a very long line-up.
We were the last to be called up which, for me, was a bit hard to handle because it was Friday night at the very end of a tiring week. I really just wanted to go home and sleep! But also I didn’t want to miss the experience. We paid for it, after all. My daughter was excited to meet the boys and to be honest, who knows when we’ll ever get this opportunity again!
So when we finally made our way to the guys, I could see them all standing behind the table. As I approached them two things came to mind:
- They are far better looking the closer you get. The photos and videos do not do them justice.
- TALL! Boy are they tall. I’m 5′ 6.5″ which is pretty average I’d say for a woman. The shortest was half a head taller than me but the rest were towering over me for sure! Brian was leaning over the table to high-five us and he was still tall. The table was not on a platform but on the ground just like us. So…. wow. Very tall indeed!
Of all of them, Sungjin made the most memorable impression on me. They were all very kind and gracious. Sungjin just had this really down-to-earth and humble air about him.
