From Dallas to Madrid: BANG YONGGUK’S Europe Tour 2019

Less than a month ago, fellow team member X.O and I decided to pack our bags on a whim and plan a trip to Spain, a country we both have never been to, marking our first time out of North America. For what you may ask? Originally, it was for vacation. We had all intentions of going to Spain for just vacation up until it was announced that Bang Yongguk would be touring Europe and decided we would visit a city that was part of his tour. Because we were originally heading to Barcelona, we decided that maybe we should go to Paris for the tour, but with our bad luck, the concert sold out the minute we tried to book tickets so in the end, Madrid it was! Without a doubt in mind, we purchased tickets to see the concert and closed the deal. I booked our flights, trains, and accommodations and finally, we were set off to visit the country of Spain where, according to one of our taxi drivers there, “the paella is the best and the metro is the most efficient”.

Before we even set off American soil, we were quick to notice how efficient and down to earth the tour organizers were by the way they interacted with fans of Bang Yongguk through all of their social media handles. They interacted with fans, answered their questions, had fun conversations with them, and overall were able to keep things intimate as well as professional with directing how the day of events would go on. I was both amazed and inspired by their friendliness and chill way of working, something that you rarely find here in America when it comes to concerts and tours.

The day of the actual concert was amazing. The venue was a club in Madrid with an intimate setting and beautifully decorated. Staff and fans were both very efficient when it came to figuring out how lining up would work and making sure everyone was in their right place before doors opened for Gold ticket holders. During the actual hi-touch and photo-op session, I noticed how different K-POP concerts were organized in Europe compared to here in America. Each fan was able to take a photo next to the artist, and the groups were only of four, rather than of 10 to 20. Even the fans were helping staff members switch out fans and make sure the photo-op process was as smooth as possible. It was quite cute to witness and I wish it were to work as well here as it did in Madrid.

The actual concert was my favorite part. Never ever have I witnessed such passion and love for performing as I did when Bang Yongguk began performing. You could see how deep and passionate he was towards his music, his lyrics, and his fans when he began his performance. I stood in the back and was able to take in the intimate atmosphere that arose from the relationship between the artist and his fans. It was so beautiful to witness fans tearing up and crying to both his lyrics and the passion he showcased when performing AM 4:44, a song that spoke deeply to many and whose lyrics showcased his personal struggles physically and emotionally during harsh times back in 2015. It left me speechless to see how a rollercoaster of emotions spread throughout the venue that night with each song performed.

The setlist for the whole concert was based on his first full album, BANG YONGGUK. He performed every song on the album and even performed YAMAZAKI, a song that many fans were very excited to see live for the first time outside of Asia. The atmosphere was never quiet and was always either heartfelt or hype, a perfect combination of emotions for an outstanding show. Even in the beginning, before show even began, there was a DJ, DJ EBONY, as the opening act, and fans were happily dancing and jamming out to his music. I found it hilarious when he played “Gasolina” by Daddy Yankee which to my surprise, was actually a requested song by the fans. It brought tears of laughter to my eyes because it was a song that threw me back to my old elementary and middle school years.

As the show closed, the staff apologized for earlier misunderstandings and thanked everyone for their cooperation and patience. They even took photos with the fans which I found adorable and reminded me so much of KPD, who always takes photos at the end of every KWF or event we put on. K-EVENTS were honestly one of the best organizers I have ever had the pleasure to witness in work, and their personality and friendliness with fans reminded me so much of my team (KPD) when it came to our old times of working behind the scenes at concerts in Dallas and at our own organized events. It was heartwarming to see that there are people out there in the industry who want nothing but everything for the fans and only the fans. They had so much love and care and thought for the fans, that it truly made me smile and wish more organizers were like them when it came to concerts and tours. Along with them, I was amazed at how passionate and how much love the artist had for his craft and his fans. It was like a breath of fresh air to attend a concert where it didn’t even feel super strict or commercially made/produced like others I’ve been to. It felt free, real and intimate. I wish more concerts and shows were like this one was.

To conclude, I want to thank K-EVENTS for their amazing organization and friendliness throughout the tour, and of course to Bang Yongguk for an amazing show that will be engraved into my memories as one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended. I also want to thank his staff and to all the fans in Madrid who were welcoming to both of us despite us being from out of the country. If K-EVENTS were ever to venture overseas, or if you are ever able to attend any of their concerts or events in Europe, I highly recommend them, and if Bang Yongguk were ever to perform in the U.S, I highly recommend you to attend one of his shows. You will not be disappointed.

ROOFTOP LIVE with Ravi

Helllooooo everyone!! This weeks episode of V.Friends I will be reviewing Ravi’s Rooftop live song Frypan and other content! (P.S I always like to give a little story time relating to what I am reviewing. Hope you guys like my stories!)

Out of all the other talented artists I chose Ravi, because he was my old bias… haha I have moved onto another bias (or maybe bias(es) LOL). I’m sorry I just can’t have ONE ultimate bias because two of my favorite groups are BIGBANG and EXO. Both groups have such a different dynamic vibe that both deliver something totally beyond of what expected and I love it.

Don’t get me wrong, VIXX is a talented group with their unique feel and once upon a time KPD was in love with VIXX. Our love for VIXX grew when KPD was fortunate enough to be a part of two of their tours. And… let me tell you, for both tours we have SUPER CRAZY STORIES to tell! Ya’ll let us know if you guys ever want us to make a video of our experiences with these idols! Of course we will only say what is appropriate to the viewers but, what we can definitely say is working with kpop artists consists time, passion, commitment, LITERALLY  blood, sweat & tears and adrenaline! It may have been stressful times but, at the end it was all worth it.

 

VIXX-Kpop-7.jpg

KPD’s favorite VIXX era! 💖😭

 

Right of the bat the video quality is A1!! It gives of a really cool and trendy vibe feel with Ravi coming out a spitting FIREEEE!! The first song he performs is Frypan ft. Double K & Microdot. The lyrics of the song is pretty much cooking food on the frypan but the meaning of the song goes deeper than that. The interpretation I got is pretty much describing the success of the group. The gang made it, we here, we’re the best and no one can touch us sorta vibe! The rappers chose really cool and clever context to express their feelings and get the message across.

 

IMG_3256.PNG

Of course he’s wearing his GUCCI belt! XD

 

He also performed his song Sparring+Payback which was another fast paced song! These two songs come from his 3rd mixtape K1TCHEN. And honestly after watching these two songs I’m going to listen to the rest of the mixtape. In the past I have not been much of a fan of Ravi’s mixtapes but this one I might have to give in and give it a chance! (please don’t come after me! This is just my opinion and I am not throwing hate at all. I believe very artist is amazing by just being able to make it in the industry so cheers for all the kpop artists!!)

 

IMG_3262.PNG

 

Ravi’s rapping style is super different from any other rapper in the Korean hip-hop community. You know it’s Ravi for his low husky voice and fast rapping technique. Also when he raps it looks like he’s looking into your soul like eyes of a tiger like ready to jump onto his enemy. But in reality Ravi can be a HUGE dork when he’s with Ken and Hyuk…. OMG KPD used to call those three the 3 amigos or the 3 dorks! XD Just because them together it meant trouble or they would just pick on poor Leo and Leo would just be in his own little world.

 

SOOMPIVIXX71.jpg

This day was unforgettable and will forever be in our memories as our first kpop to work with! 

This consists of my review of Ravi’s Rooftop Series on the V APP for the 3rd episode of V.Friends!!

Thank you all and see you all next time!!!!

MY PICK ON V PICK! THIS WEEK ON V. FRIENDS!

got7.jpg

HEYYYOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!!

IT’S CHRISTMASSSS!!! WOOOOO HAHA OKAY OKAY (DON’T KILL ME)

200

Whoa who remembers this?! XD

This weeks episode of V.Frirends is my favorite pick on the V PICK! channel series. If the cover didn’t give it away you’re right, it’s GOT7!!!

In this short episode of V PICK! GOT7 gave a thankful message to all the IGOT7’s around the world for helping them obtain two titles, Artist of the year and Best Popular award at the Asia Artist Awards!

As usual they couldn’t move forward without having to roast Youngjae and his embarrassing airport fashion sense and bad choice of shoes! LOL

In the video GOT7 showed their gratitude towards IGOT7s for their uttermost support they have shown GOT7 throughout the years. Not to mention also announcing their latest title song that will be coming out soon called, Miracle!

iZcT1wAl.jpg

OMG I can’t wait! Look at these 7 handsome men XD

The boys briefly talked about the title song and what it meant to them. JB expressed how the song Miracle would reveal the feelings and experiences they had to face throughout the years as a group. In the short description JB gave I was able to interpret that the meaning of the song would be about looking back in life the hardships you had to face. The good vibes you experienced along the way and how it was all worth it in the end. What matters the most is that you’re standing stronger than ever and glad you were able to stuck through it all. Also, always giving thanks to the people who help you along the way. (emo and wise Jessi came out LOL)

Honestly, I have to say that those boys have progressively improved so much throughout the years. Not only as musicians and artists but has individuals as well. The most growth I’ve seen from the group would have to be BamBam because, he debuted at such a young age and to see him grow into the person he is today is truly remarkable. To me he’s still the same young, dorky, smiley and playful looking kid! XD

200w-1.gif

OMG who still remembers BamBam’s streak of dabbing 😂

I still remember seeing them in the survival show of WINNER in the episode where YG trainees and JYP trainees would battle each other out showing their suave moves and vocals, to which I thought the JYP kids killed them in the dancing category. Sorry WINNER and iKON but GOT7 took the title home.

DDuJOtCVYAAWeUF.jpg

Not to mention, their very first fanmeet in the states!! KPOP Dallas had the honor to participate and contribute in the event when they first came to Dallas!! Our KPD team has so many stories of our back-stage times with GOT7! I think I will leave that for another time because it is long and funny af. Or maybe in the future I can do a video in regards of all the artists and shows we have had the pleasure to collaborate with. The year 2015 was an incredible year for us as in growth and in experiences to which I am eternally grateful for.

CBu8oNTUoAEKxeN.jpg

With that I leave with my favorite video of V PICK!

Hope to see you all in my next blob post of V.Firends! I swear I’m working on getting some videos up. I’ve just been so busy at work and stressed that I have had no time to get everything going up, but I swear it will be soon!

Byeeee my loves!!

Vlive Friends Season 5!

Who’s Your Fave?

Me every time I hear someone mention my faves

Hi Guys!! Annddddd we’re back with Vlive Friends Season 5!!! WOOOOO!! I hope you guys are excited as we are because, there are a lot more exciting things stored this season. I’m actually sad because I wanted to make a video for this post but, I got sick this weekend I lost my voice. I’m barely recovering my voice and I have to save it for tomorrows concert (DPR Live)!! Hopefully by the next one I can make a video for you guys!!

Our mission for this episode of Vlive Friends we were asked to review our favorite Vlive Channel. Honestly this one was a tough one because I follow a lot of channels especially all my favorite Kpop artists like BIGBANG, EXO, VAV, Highlight etc… I especially enjoyed watching BIGBANG’s MADE Tour last stop in Seoul because it really made me feel like I  was at the concert! Before it started I literally got ready for this concert, I mirrored my phone to my Apple TV, turned on my Bose, grabbed my BIGBANG light stick, and headed to the living room ready for this concert. There I was dancing furiously to Fantastic Baby!! *whispers Yeogi buteora* haha I cranked up the volume up so high I was so sure my neighbors could hear me XD

This is my version of dancing Fantastic Baby

Don’t get me started with their Kpop video teasers!! I alway see the teaser first on Vlive and then on YouTube. I get the notifications so fast I instantly watch the teaser. Like when I saw the VAV’s Señorita teaser MV on Vlive I made sure to click the heart icon a million times, I went crazy!!

Image-1-1.jpg

This is me after every teaser I watch of my favesss

Okay, other than me choosing my favorite kpop bands as my favorite Vlive channel I chose Dingo Music as one of my favorite channels. I absolutely love the when they do the 100 seconds video of an artist. It’s actually a really clever idea to do with the Kpop groups. It allows them to showcase 100 seconds of all their popular songs in one short video. I think they should show more rookie groups that way they can get more exposure. Plus it would help with their popularity!

Image-1.jpg

I wish they would post more often though like they do on facebook. I know on facebook they have like different branches of Dingo. For example they have a food channel (which is my favorite to watch), travel (and by travel I mean by what places to explore when you’re in Korea), beauty, and close ups of my favorite artists. They like to focus on one member throughout the whole video like a fancam. Dingo should really have a channel for every category but, then again I guess we have facebook for that.

I would definitely be on that Dingo food channel if they had it. For example, every week welcome a celebrity chef or a kpop artist to cook or showcase their favorite meal, dish or snack! Reminds me of when EXO D.O cooked soybean paste soup (Doenjang Jjigae) on their channel. Ma baby was looking like a true snack haha… I mean chef! I even followed his recipe to make it at home! I literally went back to my saved videos and watched his episode again just so I could follow his steps.

IMG_0617.jpg

omFGSAAOIWUS!! THIS PHOTO IS EDITED BUT YALL ALREADY KNOW HOW D.O CAN REALLY BE XD

Point is that I have a lot favorite channels on Vlive haha… I talked about so many different channels on here I simply couldn’t choose one… So This concludes of my review! Before I leave, leave a comment below on what you would like to see from the Vlive Friends. Literally thing you can think of! We always think about you guys, our fans, so please let us know what you want to see next. Thanks!

Until next time~~~

Thanks for reading my loves see you next time!

[V.FRIENDS VIXX N’s LieV – 빅스 엔의 눕방 라이브!]

Hiya everyone!
 
Today, we will be reviewing VIXX’s N’s VCookie LieV show! Now, if you didn’t know this already, VLIVE opened a new channel showcasing your favorite kpop stars lives with very intimate moments! Today, we will be taking a look into VIXX’s N Liev~~ Grab a warm blanket, and your favorite plush animal, for this video really makes you want to snuggle up and sleep!
9
 
For starters, I must say, this was a really comforting episode. Just the way N speaks to you makes you feel like you’re having a nice chat with him before going to bed. The intimate POVs the cameras show, the dim lighting, and the comfy looking bed he’s in just adds onto that aura. It’s truly a sweet video, making you feel like you’re close with N, and able to listen to his thoughts before bed.
 
The video itself earns 4 out of 5 star(lights) for wonderful quality, but the fact that it’s vertical, is hard for computer viewers to really enjoy it as much. Although VLIVE is mostly enjoyed through the app, it would’ve been nice to have the screen be full rather than vertical for all platforms, including via their website.
 
The quality of the content is 5 out of 5 star(lights) because dude, this video makes you FEEL like you’re talking to him before bed. It’s as if you’re right next to him, listening to his thoughts (especially if you have headphones on and your eyes closed). I watched this in the afternoon, and it made me want to go to bed LOL. It really is soothing and intimate, especially with all the camera views the VCOOKIE staff give you~!
 
Now, as for the English subtitles, 5 out of 5 star(lights)!! They really did well, and I wasn’t confused at any moment on what he was saying because the subs were all there and I was able to understand every word he spoke. As international fans with limited to no Korean knowledge, it can be crucial to find good quality subtitles when it comes to videos by your favorite idols. We either misunderstand or not understand at all which creates confusion and overall, some sadness because /language barrier/ 😦 It’s truly wonderful being able to understand them clearly, even if we have to focus on the subtitles often!

Overall, this video was amazing. It’s intimate, fun, and really worth watching. It makes you feel fuzzy and warm, as well as helps you get to know your idols a little more. If you want to watch this ep, make sure to check out the link below! Enjoy it!
 

BIG TO THE BANG! Concert Review

We are back with another exciting review! This Time, we are reviewing Big Bang’s “BigBang10 The Concert: 0.to.10”. By The look of the trailer of this, I can’t wait to see how this is gonna turn out. Playing all of their hit singles and getting the crowd all pumped up! This 10th Anniversary concert is really hitting me that wow big bang has been around for a long time. I really hope they have more years to come. Now enough of me talking about that, let’s go watch some big bang in the sky. (pun intended)
As the concert starts you are zoomed out to see the whole stadium. The place is so full and has a great beautiful yellow ocean (Lightsticks). The doors open and big bang is standing right there and the crowd goes wild. The first song they do is their debut song back in 2006. WOW, TALK ABOUT THROWBACK!!!! They did mix in heaven into LALALA. I am very surprised that they still know the lyrics from 10 years ago. “We Like 2 Party” is on next. As this song is playing they are on 2 cars going around the stadium. You can tell the vibe there (or any Concerts) has a great and party vibe. “Hands up”plays and Then all the members introduce themselves. While I was watching this, I would quietly yell their name. “Bad Boy”, “Loser”, and “Feeling” Play next. All these are some of my favorite songs. And then, OUT OF NOWHERE LOLLIPOP STARTS PLAYING. LIKE THAT WAS MY JAM BACK IN THE DAYS. after, They do a melody with a little dubstep remix… I felt like I was in a club in Seoul. And then an intermission with the band plays and now we get to solos!!! The manke goes first with :Let’s talk About Love”, And “Strong Baby”. Daesung takes the stage next with “Wings” and “Look At Me Gwisoon”(The Outfit he has here though, he was dressed like a pimp like I’m not even kidding LOL) “Crooked” plays next and with both of them on stage they are just going wild with this song. GD’s “heartbreaker” and ,“crayon” with a techno groove. And than TOP JOINS the stage with him. For high high. (in this song they are riding a segway on the stage, Like omg the would.)
AND THEN A SPECIAL GUEST APPEARS. LIKE WHAT IS THIS. IT’S NO OTHER THAN PSY!!!!! He talks about his friends in big bang and how he known them for a long time. He performs the song “Champion”. I never heard this song before but this song was really good!!! He plays his world famous song “Gangnam style” and the whole stadium does the dance with him.The lights dim and Taeyang and GD play “Good Boy”. even from my desk i was dance and trying to rap the lyrics. “Pretended” “Doom Dada” and “Eyes Nose and Lips” Were the next songs. With eyes nose and lips gave me chills. The whole stadium was sing along and it was more powerful than Taeyang! Now that has to be loud! “Just Look at me” And “Ringa Linga” play for his next 2 songs.
With a short jazz intermission we are getting ready for the final part of the concert. And now we get to the slow songs “If you” and “Haru Haru”. When “Haru Haru” started playing i had watery eyes. That was the song that got me to like big bang and into the KPop world. I was even sing the lyrics and wave my arms in my room. MAAAAN, it hit me how good that song was. After that amazing song it’s time to get pumped up again with “ BANG BANG BANG”, “Fantastic Baby” and “Sober”.
With the Encore not being able to show on this i was pretty sad. But still was a great concert! I’m pretty sure I can watch this again and again. Happy 10th Anniversary Big Bang! Keep making awesome music and never quit. I recommend this concert to everyone in the Kpop world or even in the whole music industry. IT’S JUST THAT GOOD!!!!

Best. Absolute. Perfect. AWAKE!

Best. Absolute. Perfect. The meaning behind the boy group B.A.P’s name. After viewing the Seoul finale of their Live On Earth Awake tour, it’s obvious that these boys strive for just that; the absolute best and absolute perfection. They are truly some hard working kids.

After a long hiatus, the boys traveled across over 30 countries and various cities, showcasing their new looks, and their new sound. But, let’s not get this wrong; they might have new music, but they have not strayed away from their roots as leader Bang Yong Guk still writes for the boys, and continues delivering the absolute best.

As part of VLIVE+, the Seoul finale concert was livestreamed, and it was truly something worth watching. With stages you’d never expect, and the release of their most recent single “That’s My Jam”, it was worth the wait and definitely worth the coins.

The Concert

Now, the concert was spread into two days, but we were lucky enough to view one of the days. It was live, meaning we were literally watching as the concert was going on. Now that’s something out of the ordinary! We hope VLIVE continues doing this because it truly helps those who are not in Korea connect and watch the concert live as if they were there.

The setlist was filled with songs that they’ve recorded since 2012, and even some surprising stages, such as Jongup featuring Yongguk. This was probably one of my favorite stages for the same reason that Jongup was finally able to showcase himself more than he already has. It’s something that I’ve been waiting for TS ENTERTAINMENT to let him do, and I was thoroughly pleased that it finally happened.

The boys were lively on stage, and performed so powerful. The minute Warrior came on, I squealed, reminiscing of when they debuted and how impactful they were in my life. I will never forget just randomly deciding to watch their debut, and falling in love. I will never regret it.

Along with Warrior, they performed other stages such as One Shot, No Mercy, Badman, and my absolute favorite song of all, 1004. Their performances for each song was perfect, and full of passion that I’ve never felt so proud for a group of boys before. They’ve really come a far way.

Fan-talk was fun, and enjoyable. They thanked fans as they always do, and looked as if they were truly happy to be there. VLIVE truly captured and made it seem as if we were physically in the concert venue, enjoying the concert as fans in Korea were.

It was finally time for the boys to release their newest single, “That’s My Jam” and let me tell you! These boys put in their all while performing this song. It’s an EDM style song with a catchy tune that will give you such summer feels. It made me like summer, even in this hot Texas weather. While watching them perform, I knew I had to watch the awaited MV and listen to the whole album. And let me tell you, when I finally did, it was everything I expected. Good job, Bang Yong Guk!

Now, the most memorable part of the WHOLE concert, was most definitely Mr.Daehyun crossdressing. Now let me tell you, this boy can be a pretty girl. That wig fit him so well, I was amazed at how great he looked. It was a cute fan service that the fans truly enjoyed and that caught my attention during the live broadcast.

The Quality

The quality of the video was amazing as we were able to watch the concert without having to be in South Korea. I do hope that VLIVE continues this trend, and gives all groups the option to showcase their concerts live on VLIVE+ for fans outside of Korea to view, as it’s a way to get us involved and also support our favorite artists. The quality of the video was good, and I was able to make out who was who the whole time. The screen time for each member was distributed well and I appreciate the camera men for not just focusing on one person. The quality of the sound was perfect, and even though it was a livestream and you’d expect the base to be way too much, it was perfect and felt like I was watching a concert DVD. I really loved it.

Although the livestream was live, and isn’t up for re-watching, I would recommend still buying the series of videos and waiting for it to be re-uploaded. You won’t be disappointed at the beautiful choreography, and performance of the six boys of B.A.P, as well as the future GIFT VODs to be uploaded in September.

Overall

From the performances to the fan talk, to the release of their new hit single, That’s My Jam, the overall video/stream was worth watching. The only complaint I have as an international fan living in Dallas, is the time it goes live. REALLY EARLY! Haha, but that’s just the time zones doing their thing. Another complaint would be that unlike BTS Bon Voyage, this live stream was not uploaded right away after it finished. It has still yet to be re-uploaded, and I’m sorta sad about that. I really wanted to watch the video once again, but was not able to because well, it’s not up yet.

If you really love B.A.P, and concerts, this is a perfect series for you a long with the BIGBANG VLIVE+. You’ll be able to see the concerts, and get little GIFT VODs of your favorite members. It’s totally worth the coins and overall, gets good reviews from me!

Beenzino in Dallas 120915

IMG_4745

The concert began with a Dj Sanchez playing his crazy beats getting the whole crowd ready. After a few songs Beenzino appears. By the first few songs I was like yeah I am digging this. He then started to get more relax and pumping the crowd and hitting it like no tomorrow. I’m not that quite familiar with his music but, at that moment I wish I knew all his songs so I could be head nodding like the rest of the crowd and singing along. Though that did not stop me from having great time^^. Towards the middle of the concert he said a few words and mentioned he is very thankful for the people who came out. He started to talk about his passion for music and how he wants to be different from other artists.

IMG_4855.JPG

Other than his own music he performed some collabs with 1llionaire! The most anticipated song of night was when he performed his part from Born Hater by Epik High! The audience went crazy after the first beats of the song and realized it was the famous Born Hater! When it came for the encore the audience went absolutely ballistic! Fans dancing, singing and having the best time of their lives.

IMG_4789.JPG

My experience at the concert was overwhelming and memorable. I hope he continues his passion and continues making music. I would definitely go see him perform again^^ Overall the concert was freaking hype!! It was not the typical kpop concerts I’ve been to but, yes of course since Beenzino is korean hip hop it’s bond to have differences. The whole vibe that Beenzino was giving off was ultimately unique and different.

I would like to thank the organizers for bringing Beenzino to Dallas and also having a section reserved for press, I am eternally grateful for that.

Thank you!! I hope you guys look forward for my concert updates^^

Jam #2 – “Love Formula”

AAYYYYYEEEEE

It’s time for this week’s jam!

hqdefault (1)

R.EF’s FAREWELL FORMULA!

Now, before anyone starts thinking questions, this group debuted back in 1995 with hit song “Farewell Formula”. Group consists of three members; Park Chul Woo, Sung Dae Hyun, and Lee Sung Wook.

R.EF went on a haitus in 1998 and since then released a spontaneous song “Love is Hard” in 2004 and has not performed as a whole since.

(From this point on, click on the pink titles to see video performances!)

R.EF – FAREWELL FORMULA PERFORMANCE
(The Fangirls from the 90’s tho!!!)

R.EF has inspired many artist to spread the message to not be sad from a break-up and to be happy!  This song has made many cameos in dramas, reality shows, competition shows (popular being Immortal Song 2), showcases, and music covers!

Korean Pop Idols also participate in showing the love~

Boy group, VIXX, has been also released a mini album with remake of song R.EF’S “Farewell Formula“, introduced as,”Love Equation“.

And last but not least,

ZE:A & R.EF’s SUNG DAEHYUN

(That is correct! Former member of R.EF, Sung Daehyun!!!)

Screenshot (751)

An episode of Immortal Song 2 aired with the theme of “Heartthrobs of 90’s are back!” had former member,  R.EF’s Sung Daehyun (located in the middle), as a guest and contestant with boy group ZE:A (surrounding Sung Daehyun) for this episode’s round! Sung Daehyun has shown to us that he still quite comedic and goofy and wishes for everyone not to be sad when going through a break-up or a sad moment!

This is a very much recommended song in yo’ playlist, if I do say so myself~
If I were to compare a real life situation, it would be an ended-small-term relationship where both parties are trying to move on in a happy way–

ANYWAYS~

This has been XO, BRO!

~Until Next Time, TURN UP!
