Riya Choudhary, Delhi
It’s a dream and a lovely wish of every fan to attend the concert of a group or artist they like and admire. For me, it was one of my wishes on my bucket list. Recently this wish of mine got fulfilled!
KARD, a co-ed group of K-POP (South Korean-Pop) came to Delhi, India in the month of July, 2019 and performed live on 12th July at Talkotara Stadium, Delhi. I finally got the chance to meet my favourite artists. KARD is a co-ed idol group under DSP Media consisting of members BM, Jiwoo, J.Seph and Somin. A concert was held along with fanmeet. I was really excited for the concert day because it was going to be my first ever k-pop concert. I went to the venue along with my sister. We entered the seating area after the security check. KARD’s songs were playing on the big huge screen and my excitement to see them was increasing every second. Every fan can imagine that rush of excitement in their veins when they are about to see their idols.
Finally the time came for the fan meet and I was literally screaming my lungs out. I opted some perks i.e. Hi-touch, photo-op to attend their fan meet. The organizers, Pink Box Events, conducted the fan meet really well. Their patience and hard work is highly appreciated! When my turn came, the organizers surprisingly announced to KARD that we have a special fan of yours who has especially come to meet you. At that time, I got blank for a second and I was blushing with a big smile. I got their attention, they all were looking at me and their reaction was like AWWWW!!!!! I shook hand with each and every member of KARD. Jiwoo and Somin held me while clicking a group picture. I am still unable to get that moment out of my mind. It was truly magical!
And after that the concert kicked off! KARD came on to the stage and the crowd was screaming their lungs out. Then they performed some of their songs like Ride on the wind, Dimelo, Hola hola, Oh na na, You in me, Rumour, Knockin’ on my heaven’s door, Mi gente etc. By witnessing this live, it feels so good to be there and most importantly it’s one of the most beautiful fan moment. They gave us a surprise by singing ‘Bom Diggy Diggy’ for Indian fans. Also, J.Seph sang ‘Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai’ along with fans and that’s the most cutest thing of the concert. They also played some games with fans. And at last, they performed their energetic song Bomb Bomb.
After that they walked out of stage quietly but all fans stayed there and boom they walked on to the stage again and held an encore stage for each and every audience present there. KARD fan service was too good and I really loved that. All fans in the venue rushed near the stage and that scene was truly tremendous! Indian Fans truly welcomed them with all their heart!
Everything that I experienced that day will stay in my heart forever and I’ll support KARD and K-POP for life. I extend my thanks to Pink Box Events and Korean Cultural Centre India for giving us such a beautiful memory! Have you ever attended a concert? Share your experience with me in the comment below!
