A fan account on the ‘The Most Beautiful Moment in Life On Stage: Epilogue’ in Manila which happened last July 30th, 2016. I am most likely going to edit this when I am not thinking about my school work. Lol 3 more weeks till the semester ends.
Photos will be put up by the weekend. I am not able to get them now, my phone’s battery is low.
I heard of the news about BTS’ concert in the Philippines a few months back. ‘The most beautiful moment’ is going to happen in Manila. At that time, I still had problems with their fans and tried not to get into anything BTS so I didn’t have plans on going. Also, the teaser was put up a few days after Selena’s concert announcement. I needed to see Selena first.
I had second thoughts about going. I wanted to see BTS perform live, yet also wanted to see Selena badly. I told myself I would buy a ticket if I had the money to, right after I secure a ticket for Selena’s concert. Unfortunately, the concert tickets for the BTS concert were sold out in a couple of hours, I believe. It was sad but I was also happy to be able to save more money.
I did not put much thought in the concert as it was already sold out but on the 27th of July, someone I knew posted about selling her extra tickets and I asked why. She said it was her sister’s ticket but because her sister backed out, she is selling it. I had to think fast if I wanted the ticket. Since it was discounted, I bought it. Finally, I am going to see BTS.
On the day of the concert, I had a morning class – Korean language class. We were dismissed around 12:27PM.
I arrived outside the venue a bit past 1:30, and met up with a few classmates. They weren’t able to buy tickets but they still came. They told me they have been there since 7AM.
We walked here and there, trying to find tickets that they could buy. We ate at Jollibee as I haven’t had breakfast nor lunch. The line to the counter was unbelievably long, and took about half an hour till we were able to order food, no kidding.
I met up with the friend who sold me the ticket around 4PM. We tried to search for light sticks but she wanted to see the Koreans who she bought hers from so, in the end, I did not get to buy any.
The time I spent outside the venue, I only kept on looking for people: my classmates, my friend who sold the ticket, light stick vendors, and my teamwaffles member. I also wanted to buy a slogan set from a Taehyung fansite that I would have been able to see but I didn’t get to either. I knew I was going to go home sad.
At past five in the afternoon, we decided to fall in line. It was long but thankfully, we didn’t have to wait for a long time to get inside. The classmates I had were left outside. I wanted to call them during the concert, but I couldn’t.
I have already attended two concerts and each time I went, I always run along the halls leading to the main venue. It was fun. It had always been fun. It gives a different kind of feeling. I am finally going to see them. I want to run to them. I will probably be doing it as long as I attend concerts and am still able to run.
The two companions I had were probably shocked but also ran with me. I told them I have always done that.
We got inside the main venue and it was scary. The tickets we had were the cheapest and farthest; the seats we had were the highest and it was frightening up there. I had to hold onto the seats because I felt like one wrong step and I would fall 2 or 3 levels down. During the concert, I used my Engineering powers to assess the situation. I would probably be stopped by a seat or two before I actually fall to the ground level.
One of the things I dislike is when people are loud. I don’t like when people shout yet. Every time I attend concerts, I always ask myself: ‘Why do you forget how much you hate people shouting when you buy concert tickets?’
Before the actual concert, several BTS music videos were played. People kept shouting, and I badly wanted to go home then, like every Korean Pop event I have ever gone to.
I kept on posting on Facebook about wanting to sleep there as I was going to Selena’s concert the next day in that very same venue.
The concert started with RUN if I remember correctly. I thought to myself: This is it. This is finally it. That is BTS on stage. After 3 whole years, I finally am able to see them perform.
During the concert, I was thinking about how awesome it would be later on when they start performing Miss Right, my absolute favorite song.
Currently on 800 words. Lol
When they performed Young Forever, I couldn’t see most of them as they were near the main screen of the stage. I was at the right side of the stage.
During Boy in Luv, I almost cried. I saw my seatmate staring at me, and I ended up laughing. Boy in Luv was one of their first songs, and, at that time, I was really deep into the fandom. I have had a few problems with the fans back in 2015 so I stopped listening to BTS’ new songs.
Whalien52 was pretty awesome by the way. I haven’t heard of it till during the concert.
ALSO! I cannot contain the feels, I’m sorry. The rap/rapper line performed Cypher pt. 3 and well, it was lit. I love all three Cypher.
I had a really awesome time during the concert. They also performed N.O and No More Dream, and the crowd went wild when Jimin pulled his shirt up. As it were the first two title comeback songs, it felt different to me. It was nice to reminisce. I’ve loved BTS for a while, although I somehow left, I can’t deny they still make my day.
It felt nice. At some parts of their few songs, they let us sing them. But I wouldn’t lie, during Miss Right, when they stopped singing and let us do it, although it was fun, I was disappointed. I really wanted them to sing and I wanted to feel the song but at least I still heard them sing it. 😀
After the concert, I went to meet up with my classmates again. I also texted Pam, a member of teamwaffles, a family we have made on twitter. This was the day I would finally see her. I have met her online in 2014, while tweeting about how much I loved and wanted waffles. Also, she saw the Changsub doodle I made so we were able to talk. I met her and she was tall. I was about 5 or 6 years older, but she was taller.
We said good bye when her mom came. It was nice to finally meet her. Hopefully, I’ll get to meet her again soon. Most likely in BTS’ next concert. Please come soon back tho not too soon, I still have a trip to Korea coming up.
We bought food before heading the bus station. We were all tired and just slept throughout the ride. I still had another concert to go to the next day so I had to sleep a lot that night.
BTS was awesome. I am really thankful for the chance given to me. After so much that had happened, I finally saw them. I fell in love with them more after that night. I would love to see you again.
1200 words, did anybody actually read this? Actually, no, I’m on the 1356th word now.
Will be blogging about Selena’s concert next~
