Gwangju SBS Super Concert Tour with Trazy

I was so excited to see that Trazy offered a ticket package to SBS Super concert with BTS. It was also intriguing to know that it was held at a city that I’ve never been to. I was told that Gwangju was one of the major cities in the Jeolla province and has a significant meaning in the modern history of Korea.

The tour started early on a Sunday and we gathered at Hongdae station for the bus. There were so many buses already lined up and I was very surprised that the crowd was huge. There were so many people who booked from Trazy.

Waiting to get in the bus

It was definitely a long ride but the journey was pleasant as the guide made sure we were all safe.

When we finally arrived in Gwangju, our first stop was a park called ‘Uchi’. We were able to choose between Gwangju Family Land theme park, and Uchi Zoo Park. I chose Uchi Zoo Park to see some animals and take a walk at a peaceful park. It was a peaceful park where you can see some animals. There was also a ferris wheel. We had some time to relax and look around. I took the time to eat lunch as well.

A cute zoo park

After a break at the park, the bus took us to the stadium. I couldn’t help but get excited that I was finally going to see BTS and Twice. We were lined up in front of the Trazy booth to get the admission ticket. We could hear BTS rehearsing while waiting for the ticket, which made some of us feel more excited!

Finally getting the ticket!

My seat and view was amazing! The stage was closer than I expected.

I couldn’t help myself but scream when the concert started. It was almost a dream come true experience also due to the extremely cheap price that I paid for this once in a lifetime opportunity to see the biggest K-pop idols perform live.

Twice is beautiful

I sang along the songs and followed the moves. It was all so exciting and fun.

BTS is just world-class

I felt devastated that the concert was ending. There were fireworks for the finale as if they were to console me, but I still couldn’t help feeling somewhat sad that it did end.

All in all, it was a wonderful day out for me. I slept all the way through back to Seoul. I will never forget the experience thanks to Trazy.

2018 Busan One Asia Festival Closing Concert Review – Sponsored by Trazy

I was very excited about the sponsorship Trazy gave me because I got to visit Busan. Just to let you guys know, Trazy is a website where you can buy all kinds of tickets and tours in Korea. They also provide a wide range of K-pop selections and of course I’ve used them many times before.

Even though it wasn’t my first time attending BOF. It was my first time visiting Busan One Asia Festival closing ceremony. I went down to Busan a day before the concert to check out the festival since I was told from Trazy that it was rather a cultural event instead of a K-pop concert. I didn’t know about that when I came last year so sadly I couldn’t explore much.

On the next day, I got to the venue and visited Trazy booth, showed the confirmation e-mail and they handed me the ticket. The process was very smooth. There were a lot of people already lining up for the entry.

I got the A section standing ticket and I was able to see the idols perform so closely.

KARD opened the stage with their great live performance and then came Favorite, April, Dynamic Duo, NCT Dream, Teen Top and Astro. (I may have left out some other groups) It was all so exciting to see the live stages so closely. And the weather wasn’t too bad in Busan. Slightly windy but perfect for an outdoor concert. Sorry if my pictures aren’t in order. I did my best to take good pictures but with all the people, this was the best that I could get.

I enjoyed the concert throughout the whole time. I hope that I can visit it again next year!

I would also like to thank Trazy again for providing me with a great sponsorship to this amazing concert.

Goodbye Busan!

2018 Busan One Asia Festival

Have you ever heard of Busan One Asia Festival? Busan One Asia Festival is a mega cultural event that is held for a whole week from Oct 20 to Oct 28. They have an opening concert which is filled with the greatest line-up including EXO, Wanna One, Seventeen, Mamamoo and all and end with a closing concert featuring Red Velvet and NCT Dream (I think more artists will be added). I personally think it’s a great opportunity not just to attend the big K-pop concert but also to tour around the great city Busan, if you haven’t been there yet. This year, I’ve heard, that more events are going happen during the festival period since it collaborated with SM entertainment. A great news for any SM fans out there.

(This is one of the cultural events that they had last year. All picture credits to BOF official site)
I’m planning to get my BOF concert ticket from Trazy, a travel website for Korea where you can literally book pretty much any activities or tickets that are trending. They some good options for the BOF package. So if anyone is interested in visiting Busan and happens to be a K-pop fan. Watch out for this event or festival. I think it’s one of the biggest festivals that is held in Korea so everything will be very exciting. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment~! I’m happy to answer as best as I can.

2017 Dream Concert in Pyeongchang: Hassle Free Concert Experience with Trazy!

When I first knew that there will be Dream Concert in Pyeongchang, I didn’t feel like to go because it’s tooooo far. But then Trazy asked if I want to join its 2017 Dream Concert in Pyeongchang transport + ticket package, I checked the package and it’s awesome. It solves the transportation problem that I’m worried about the most and there’s also short visit to Yongpyong Ski Resort. I’ve been in Korea for more than 3 years, but I’ve never been to ski resort even once. LOL. This time I was sponsored by Trazy, but if I wasn’t sponsored I think I’d still take it because it’s such a great deal and the prize was good too!

Pyeongchang is located in Gangwon-do. It’s about 3-4 hours from Seoul. You may probably ask why the concert is not in Seoul. Why is it so far??? Whyyy? Well, the Dream Concert itself was held to celebrate D-100 of Pyeongchang Winter Olympic Games. Pyeongchang was selected to host 2018 Winter Olympic Games on 2011 and since then it has been preparing really hard for the event success. I can’t believe that 2018 Winter Olympic Games is in less than 100 days! 1 or 2 years ago, if I saw any 2018 Winter Olympic Games advertisement I was like “I don’t know if that time I’ll still be in Koreaㅠㅠ It’s still far away” But now I’m still here and with these years passed, Pyeongchang is now completely ready to host the big event. Can’t wait for it!

20 Space – The Mint Universe (New Cube Cafe)

Hiii! I just came back to Korea again after more than a month in Indonesia. And it’s so hot here. OMG!

So many things happened when I’m away. One of them is new cube cafe finally opened!!! Yeayy! I posted about cube cafe long time ago. And since Cube Ent moved its office, the cafe was closed. It’s now re-opened in Cube Ent new building but with a new name: 20 Space – The Mint Universe. I don’t know why it omits the Cube part on its name though.

20space seats

bigger space, yeayy!

Anddd I visited the cafe today~ The new cafe is much bigger than the old one. And on one side, it plays big size video using projector. Sometimes it plays Cube artists’ MV, but not when I came there. Just like the old one, It also has Cube artists’ merchandise display. But there’s only BEAST & BTOB stuff now.

Its main menu is coffee (4000-6500 KRW), but there are also different kind of tea (~5000 KRW), fruit ade, yoghurt smoothie, milkshake (5800 KRW), etc. It also serves Daquoise (1800 KRW) and Bottle Cake (4500 KRW) for you who have sweet tooth.

Since I don’t really like coffee, I ordered yoghurt smoothie. For the price that relatively a lil bit more expensive than other cafes, it has proper size. It’s big! Well, I’m sure we know that almost everyone going here has that “hidden motive”. LOL. So that size is good enough if you want to stay longer.

yoghurt smoothie

bigger space, yeayy!

Talking about “hidden motive”, I saw Pentagon’s Shinwon! Haha. Read so many fanaccount that Pentagon members frequently visit the cafe but didn’t expect that any of them would come when I went there. Perfect timing!

Pentagon is cube’s upcoming 10-member boy group. They’re supposed to debut last July, but because of Cube’s internal problem their debut date is pushed back. Sigh… I watched their reality show, Pentagon Maker, and it’s really fun. They’re crazy and talented guys. I recommend you to watch some of their performances. Here are my favorites: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 .

Shinwon was eliminated after a performance show which the recording I attended. We were asked to vote a team, but didn’t know that the result is used for elimination. Even though I believe this elimination thing is scripted, I felt really bad for Shinwon because I voted for another group. On the last episode of Pentagon Maker they were given mission to revive the eliminated member including Yanan and Edawn: their debut concert must be attended by minimum 2000 people. Which is ridiculous scenario because: First, if you call it debut concert then the album, music video, etc should be done which means the member is already decided. Second, that number is big for a rookie group. And now the debut concert is canceled. I don’t know how they’ll make the 3 members “smoothly” come back after getting eliminated. Sometimes I feel tired with kpop drama. Haha.

Anyway, I hope they’ll debut soon >< Jinho waited for 8 years to debut, he was SM trainee and once debuted under project SM The Ballad. Hongseok was YG trainee and was eliminated in survival show Mix & Match. This debut is something that they’re really long for.

Sorry for the long rant about Pentagon ^^v Please watch their show and support them. Anddd if you want to visit 20 Space, here’s the detail:
