Kcon New York 2016 At The Prudential Center - June 24th-25th, 2016 PHOTOS (Photo : Angie Turbines for KpopStarz ) Entering the 2d one day of KCON The large apple made me excited than I used to be the day before. Perhaps because I best had one panel to wait and had more time to explore at the convention. And also maybe since the hype for the key headliner, BTS, used to be intense.

After my remaining panel with NuttyNomads, East Coast K-Spots, there has beenan infinitequantity of time for me to try the Korean food street. From the Nongshim Shin Ramyun stand for the ones thatwish to existrelatively sadistic and treat themselves to a hot taster of ramyun in the sweltering warmth to the Melona booth wearing3other flavors in their signature ice pops to cool things down.

A few meters away, lines of local food trucks got herevia to give a dose of Asian cuisine. From the potato spiral, Korean tacos, to kimbap and other Korean boulevard foods, there were also burgers and fries to be hador even an ice cream truck serving them in scoops in a hot glazed doughnut called creamybuns.

On the opposite side, of the convention, Day6 made a distinct appearance in the Toyota booth and did a small meet and greet with fortunate fans. Taking photographs and an never-ending amount of fan service, the encompassingspaces of the tent become packed.

Throughout the conference fans were spotted shooting amongst their favourite K-Pop YouTubers similar to J.R.E and Jun Curry Ahn whilst they post up short meet and greet spots round the convention.

Moments later, the crowd headed in for the moment and last day of KCON's M! Countdown concert.

Just like the primary day's host, Ailee and Rap Monster took the degreeback and offered the night's opener - MAMAMOO.

The four-member ladycrew brought the crowd to cheers proving that their reputationis solely every bitwonderful the male teams on the KCON line-up. While they sang "You're The Best" in their setlist it was when they sang "Taller Than You (1cm)" when I were given hyped. Now not because that was the sole song I knew, yet the beat sounded like a badass feminineedition of Eminem's "The GenuineSlender Shady."

After MAMAMOO's set, JYP's choice pop/rock back Day6 came out in complete ensemble appearing "Letting Go," "Congratulations," and "Freely." As many idea their set might've been a brief one, the crowd created a special stage and collaborated with MAMAMOO. The 2 groups conducted a K-Pop medley of CN Blue's "I'm A Loner," Big Bang's "Lies" and the sweetness Girls' "Nobody."

Bringing a more romantic feel to the concert, Eric Nam popped up from the front-end of the concert stage with a bouquet of roses as offers them out to his fans as he plays his first song. Followed by his vintagetune "I'm Okay" the singer/song-writer and host entertained his fans with non-publicstudies and jokes in between songs. Debuting his exclusive unmarried with Kolaj, Eric Nam accomplished "Into You" and gave Prudential Center a run for its participation as the crowd clapped and jumped along to the EDM track.

It was moments later that Eric came back on stage with Ailee for every other particular phase performing Soyou and Jung Gigo's hit song "Some." With the two buddies hilariously noticing how awkward the functionality afterwards, the two Korean-American K-Pop stars ended the evening as MCs to introduce the primary headliners of KCON - BTS.

Screams were louder than ever as the stage was lit. Literally. The displays on stage already gave a trace to what was the group's opening song would be- "FIRE." The Prudential Center lit up inside milliseconds with lightsticks and mildforums as fans began jumping up and down from their seats spazzing.

BTS comes up from the stage in flaming charismatic poses as they and the crowd started to sing "FIRE."

I, myself, could nothang back the dancing as well. I would most likely not know the choreography but there was some intense headbanging, head bopping and dabbing on my end.

Soon following up with "Save Me," BTS continues to leave a deep affect within everybody with their synchronized choreography to the tropical house-like track.

When it came to particular person introductions, the screams just grew louder and louder. The neighborhood then broke it down with performing a complete freestyle/rap ensemble and closed out the night with their viral hit "DOPE."

The night was not anything simply lit.

As all the KCON Day 2 performers came out for the closing stage, artists gave their proportion of fan provider by sending out flying kisses, mini-hearts and waves. Some artists like Ailee and MAMAMOO busted out in moves while BTS's Junggook proved himself to be the king of Dabs as he dabbed across one finish of the stage to another.

The amusing was at its top but it was unluckyto gain that KCON 2016 has come to an end.

They say time flies by when you may have got fun. And as for anyone who experienced KCON for the 1st time, it was an revel in that was way too fun and too fast. Till next year!

KCON L. a.is simply around the corner so stay an eye out for KpopStarz's coverage!

Those panels represented HanCinema's first panel revel in at KCON and we felt so welcomed by our fellow panelists.

Hallyu execs from in each and everyunmarried place the spectrum accumulatedto discuss their expertise, and their passion. The component of pastime is what makes the Hallyu journalism one of the crucial more authentic subsets of journalism. It could also be that ardour that made the panels successful.

It changed into moderated by entrepreneur, Youtuber, and all around life of the party, Multifacetedacg.

KCON Big apple Concert Day 2: From Starting to End, Uncontrollable Excitement

KCON Big apple Concert Day 2: From Starting to End, Uncontrollable Excitement

20160701_seoulbeats_kconny2016_btsKCON The giant apple Concert Day 2: From Starting to End, Uncontrollable ExcitementWritten through Madi On July 4, 201620160701_seoulbeats_kconny2016_crowdKCON 2016 Big apple Presented by Totoya held at the Prudential Middle in Newark, NJ unquestionably proved to be a festival to celebrate all things Hallyu and day two was once no other from day one.

The following may also bestated around most, if now not all, conventions: Saturday is usually and without a doubt the main day. The crowd is bigger, the lines at dealer booths are longer, and other people are waiting early in line for total admission. And we’re not speaking 10am when the conference starts. There has beenindividualscoated up as early as 8:30am.

Fast ahead to 7pm and it's far concert time. Saturday’s line up consisted of Mamamoo, Eric Nam, Day6, and BTS.

20160702_seoulbeats_kconusa_day6BTS changed into the headliner for the concert (and beautiful much all of KCON was about BTS) and any time their call was mentioned, the crowd went wild making it glaring who they were most commonly there for.

But the crowd was not biased. All of the artists gaineda wonderful amount of shouting, applauding, cheering, and not many of us sitting, if any, all over their sets.

The opening of the concert started amongst Jun Sung-ahn. Whilst many now know him as BgA’s maknae, he’s known for his violin and dance covers of K-pop songs. He conducted one reside song and then BTS’s “Save Me”, whole with dance moves from the song’s tune video. He was actually a just right artist to get the crowd excited.

Ailee and BTS’s Rap Monster returned to MC some otherevening of the concert. Unlike day one, there was less scripted lines and the communique between the either one of them and the crowd gave the impression more natural.

Mamamoo was the primary act to grace the degree with their jazzy vocals and dominating stage presence. The set list composed of “You’re the Best”, “Mr. Ambiguous”, “Taller than You”, “Piano Man,” and “Um Oh Ah Yeh”. Thosewomenknow the wayto engage with and go a crowd. To be added to a Saturday line up was a plus because they were definitely a fan favourite that night.

Even even though Hwasa owned the stage, I couldn’t stay my eyes off Solar. Visually, she was surprising (still is), but vocally? She threw down some notes and I felt like I practically forgot to breathe.

And I’ll admit, I won't don a radish mild stick any time soon, but I believe I’m intrigued adequate straight offto hear their music more actively.  As per the mid-year review, I did actuallypay attention to their newest album, but it was my 2dcreation to them, the 1st being “Ahh Oop!” with eSNa.

On the calmer aspect of the night, Eric Nam showed up with a bouquet of roses to hand out which was in sync with his intro video. While the crowd neglected out on “Ohh Ohh”, which he didn’t realize was so popular, Eric was awesome ample to pattern an acapella edition of the song.  

Despite the loss of “Ohh Ohh”, Eric executed “Good For You”, “I’m Okay”, “Heaven’s Door” and “Into You.” Most artists don’t have a tendencyto accomplish songs which are as well asfresh for the shortcoming of fan engagement, but he didn’t care. Prior to taking the crowd away with “Into You”, he told the crowd that since he’s a solo singer, he has no backup dancers. On account of that, he wantedall and sundry to dance. Despite the reality that many would possibly peg Eric Nam as a ballad singer, he definitely has a charismatic way with the crowd. And if you’re not conversant in Mr. Nam, then that a phase of his personality will certainly sneak up on you and sweep you off your feet.

After a display of Rap Monster’s aegyo via Ailee’s push which he was perplexed every bit to how the crowd knew that note Day6 install to take the Prudential Center by storm. I say this because Day6 isn’t like other K-pop acts, they’re strictly a band that fairly much promotes on their own. They don’t have much assist from JYPE outdoor of being a protection net, so for them to come to KCON was good way to introduce them to new lovers and give existing fans a possibility to shower them with love.

Day6’s set list incorporated of “Letting Go”, “Congratulations”, and “Freely”. Surprisingly, on KCON’s list of the artist’s song stash playlist, their debut song, “Congratulations”, didn’t make the cut which individually is one in their best songs as a group. Day6 most certainly had some of the best setlists, acting their most pleasurable songs.

Having the lads on stage, it was quilt time. Like the former night of Seventeen’s canopy of Super Junior’s “Sorry Sorry,” Day6 led the crowd into some conceal songs by performing CN Blue’s “I’m a Loner” and “Lies” by Big Bang. It definitely took the target audience a moment to consider of the latter song. While the crowd stayed true to CN Blue, they made “Lies” their own by their musical rearrangement. Even although they played a small intro of the song, the crowd didn’t change intoconscious about what song they were covering till Jae started making a song “I’m so sorry, but I like you…” Then, the crowd went berserk.

Riding that wave, the band beganto hide Wonder Girls’s “Nobody”. Day6, like the song before, made this song their own. Midway though, Mamamoo returned to the stage to sing and dance to the song. All people was singing along, reminiscing in the throwback moment.

Just while youconcept the covers were over, Ailee and Eric Nam returned to the stage performing “Some” by SoYou and JunggiGo. I wasn’t familiar with this song, but the 2 played the romance feel of the song moderatelyneatly and the chemistry was great between them. It was showed at the end that either are remarkable at acting, confessing the interactions between them in the route of the song were weird.

Finally, the headliners were making their way to the stage. The audience have beenlooking forward to this moment and couldn’t hang back any longer, knowing your complete artists had already played for the night and there was just one left. In spite of not desiring an intro, a video introduction played, perhaps messing with the crowd’s inability to wait.  And after a pause that gave the glance of an eternity, “Fire” started to play as the members of BTS arrived, bobbing up on a platform in the process the stage.

The power BTS gave though their entire set list was out of this international and nobody dared to take a seat down during their performances. “Save Me” was their only slow song with the purpose to speak, but the calories started to incline back when they performed “Fun Boys.” Yet what actuallywere given the crowd hyped back up was when they stunned the audience with “Cypher pt. 3”. BTS hasn’t released a Cypher since before their The Most lovely Moment in Life series. Even though the crowd went loopy for “Fire,” when the first few beats of “Cypher pt.3” dropped, the crowd promptly lost their well, you know.

The workforce wrapped up the concert with “Dope” which was a good way to end their set list and the night because KCON 2016 NY Saturday night’s concert was not anything but “Dope”.

I don’t know about any of you who attended Saturday’s concert, but it felt too short. The blocked off the time for the concert was 7pm 10pm, but the concert ended at 9:30pm. Not just that, but taking into account BTS was the headliner, they might possess done no less than3 more songs to have a whole of 8 performances. With BTS’s setlist, adding “I Want You” and probably swapping out “Fun Boys” for “Bapsae” would have made the concert more enjoyable…

IMG_6682Even though I think this way, I left the concert feeling content. I used to bein a position to revel in all the artists in user and be swept up by the energy from the concert. I walked into the Prudential Center feeling tired from all the policy nosotros did during the day, but that was all long gonethe instant the lighting fixtures went low and the concert began.

What was your expertise during the concert? Did you would like for more or simply felt bless enough for it to all go down in one night? Please leave your mind in the comments and hope to look next year, KCON!

KCON Big apple Concert Day 1: Surprises and Anticipation

KCON Big apple Concert Day 1: Surprises and Anticipation

160702_Seoulbeats_KconNY_AileeKCON Big apple Concert Day 1: Surprises and AnticipationWritten via Lauren M On July 2, 201620160702_seoulbeats_kconusanyLets be honest. Even though KCON Long island 2016 Presented by Toyota is ostensibly a festival to celebrate all things Hallyu, we know why most of the people flocked to the Prudential Middle in Newark, New Jersey for the 2nd one year in a row.

KCON NY was once all about the music.

Although the people at KCON wear a decent-sized conference this year featuring the complete thing from Korean good looks products to shuttle information, one specific thing loomed above all else – K-pop.

As the crowds took in probably the most panels and workshops, tune from everybodys faves changed intoat all times booming from the Toyota club tent and the concert later that evening was never some distance from anyones mind. Enthusiasts walked around all day in their Seventeen shirts and Ailee hats. Popular ladystaff Mamamoo made a wonder appearance at the convention degree to much excitement, even regardless that they wouldnt be actingtillthe following night. P1 and P2 status sections had long queues earlier than the day was even half-over. The bright sun and the warmthunquestionably didnt deter any person from ensuring they were given a excellent spot in the pit.

Finally, seven oclock rolled around and the venue started letting in ticket-holders. This being my first KCON, I wasnt totallycertain what to expect. The sole acts I used to bein point of factconversant in were Crush, he of the attractive slow jams, and Seventeen, the lovely and bubbly learners whove been making numerous waves. Also on the line-up were soloist Ailee, who was MCing, flexible boy neighborhood BtoB, and veteran rap act Dynamic Duo.

160702_Seoulbeats_KconNY_Seventeen_Red CarpetAfter a spunky functionality by a nativebasiccollege dance group, the lighting went down in the Prudential Center and the approximately 10,000 fans looking forward to the display went crazy. All of the anticipation of the day had ended in that moment and the buzz was thick in the air. The primary surprise of the night was that BTS leader Rap Monster was on hand to co-MC with Ailee (full disclosure: RM is my remaining K-pop bias, so you know I was in heaven). When his call was announced and he strolled out on stage, the screams were very loud, to position IT mildly. Accept as true with me, the fervor that KCON had for BTS was felt all overeither days, even although the headliners werent set to accomplishunlessthe subsequent night.

Ailee and RM were charismatic and at ease together, after having MCed before at KCON Abu Dhabi previous this year. They spoke in blended English and Korean and subtitles showed up on the massivedisplays that flanked the stage. The addition of the subtitles was helpful, yetcertainly drew attention to the cheesy, canned lines that were written for them to say.

Luckily, there wasnt much time to live on that as it was time for opening act Seventeen. In keeping with the T-shirts and homemade symptomsIdentitynoticed earlier that day, it looked likethe bulk of the crowd was there for them. The cheers let me know that my assumption was correct. They opened with “Shining Diamond” and then introduced into their latestidentify track “Pretty U”, whole alongside an on-stage sofa prop. In deficient health admit, “Pretty U” isn't my favourite song of theirs, but a minimum of the choreography is enticing and active. The youngsters in Seventeen have a ton of power and they manifestly dear to perform, especially in front of a crowd as vigorous equallythe only in the Prudential Center that night.

For a rookie organization thats slightly a year old, they were indeed impressive. Some of the contributors knew fluent English and the ones that didnt didnt let it forestall them all through their communicate after “Pretty U”. Next, they worked the complete phase during the upbeat song “Chuck” and in spite ofthe truth that theyre one of thesehuge group (and they were lacking a member!), theyre a cohesive unit that appear to mesh smartly together. Their dance formations were a little sloppy from my vantage point, but thats the one critique I had.

The greatest cheers went to rapper and previous Show Me the Money contestant Vernon, followed by leader/rapper S. Coups and pint-sized singer/songwriter Woozi. I realize why S. Coups is the leader his stage presence was the best. Others that stood out were Seungkwan and Hoshi. It was evident to me that thoseyoungsters love the camera and the spotlight. Also, I never spotted this before, but “Mansae” and “Adore U” both have simple and unique arm movements in the choreography that actuallyrelief in target audience participation. When Seventeen asked the audience to dance along, we did.

After a four-song set that felt entirely too short, Seventeen left the stage and it was time for RB crooner Crush. After a pre-recorded ment, Overwhelmseemed on stage in completeantique Tommy Hilfiger regalia and right awayreleased into “Sometimes”. He was pitchy at first, anything I characteristic to nerves, but he won his footing after a conveniente-book a rough talk. Crush didnt hassle with so much of chatter – perhaps because his English isnt fantastic – but there has been something very fascinating more or less him as he shyly and haltingly stated his ready lines. The audience perceived to warm up to him nearly immediately.

His next song was “Oasis” and everybody was making a song and dancing along. One welcome distraction was a concertgoer close to the stage with a big, light-up Crush sign. Im yes beat out saw it because all people saw it. Kudos to that fan for bringing Asignage and most probably getting saw by senpai. Then Crush wowed the crowd or perhaps precisely me? by rapping along to Zicos section in the Block B rappers absence. His (regrettably) last song was “Hug Me” which is arguably his maximumwell known hit.

Ailee began her set by grooving to her newest unmarried “Mind Your Own Business”. A technical issuebrought about the backing track to chop out abruptly, which was the moment large surprise of the night. However, Ailee, having a lookmost commonly unruffled and amused, didnt cease the performance. She endured singing the refrain acapella, which made the crowd move nuts. She proved that her voice is the genuine deal and she extensively utilized the technical glitch as a chance to get the crowd involved, encouraging us to sing in conjunction with her. When the technical factor was resolved, she told us to all faux that it hadnt happened, but the audience was having none of it. They cheered even louder as she began “Mind Your Own Business” all over again and the heightened enthusiasm spilled over into the remainder of her set.

I didnt know any of her songs before KCON, but Ailee definitely won me over. I have a feeling she won over lots ofother people at the show as well, especially when the local New Jerseyite broke down and confided that her circle of relatives was in the audience and how appreciative she was of all the affection we were giving her. When she first began out, she explained, she never expected so that you could play in big concerts like KCON. The crowd was dining out of her hand at this point, with smart reason. Her modesty and emotion felt so authentic and she stumbled on as incredibly likable.

It helped that her songs were catchy and got stuck in my head almost immediately. My favorite from her set was potentially the finishing song, “U I”. Its a brassy jam with soaring vocals and Ailee sang and danced and smiled from ear to ear like she was having the time of her life. It was a excellent way to wrap up her performance. She definitely was the superstar and sweetheart of KCON Day 1.

Next, Rap Mon returned to the stage to introduce Born To Beat, higherreferred to as BtoB. Ill admit, I was cringing then for the explanation that English lines they gave RM to say were really terrible. I cant even take into account what it was but it was an overly convoluted way to typically order that BtoB was a collectionof serious singers. As a virtual butterfly fluttered around the jumbo screens, BtoB began their set with the ballad “Remember That”. Ill admit, I was a little shocked by the quantity of screams BtoB bought because I hadnt visible many signs or shirts in improve of them during the convention. It was evident from the beginning, though, that rapper/vocalist Il-hoon was a fan favorite, as was vocalist and diversity star Sung-jae. It was also pretty evident that they were, in fact, super singers. Eukwang was belting the onestop notes and his voice filled the arena.

During their talk, their infamously quirky personalities also shined through. Peniel was the designated English speaker and, although soft-spoken, he represented his group well. Sung-jae had a memorable moment as he spoke in damaged English and made the crowd laugh with his monotone delivery. My attention was drawn most to Min-hyuk, one of the rappers, and Chang-sub, a vocalist. Both had great presence and looked the most snug on stage.

However, up to I favored their vocals, as an individual whos never been in a position to get into BtoB, I ultimatelylearned why. Though theyre a charming bunch of guys, their music and group symbol was confusing for me. Motown-esque choreography and powder-pink fits contributed to a soulful, throwback vibe, but the crowd also had 3 decent rappers. When they did their fast-paced song “Beep Beep”, it was almost jarring bearing in mind what had come before. But for all of the confusion I felt, the audience at KCON obviouslyenjoyed them.

The 3rd and fourth surprises of the night got here adjacent in fast succession. First, actors Yim Si Wan and Park Bo Young came out for an admittedly stiff and awkward introduction. I wondered what they were doing there and what cause it served, but it was far and wide pretty temporarily and painlessly. Then Seventeen returned to the stage for a medley of K-pop classics. They did a filled with life take on Super Juniors “Sorry Sorry” that got the biggest reception from the crowd, especially when they ran down the stage to get closer to the crowd. The screams were insane.

Afterwards, Ailee and Rap Mon seemedback to announce the closing act of the show. In my favorite MC moment of the night, Ailee asked RM about New York rappers and he rattled off a list, adding his all-time favorite Nas. Then, Ailee imitated his low voice and it got an even laugh from the crowd. Like I said earlier, she was truly a delight. Although it was apparent that lots of the crowd wasnt there for Dynamic Duo, there was still much of love as Gaeko and Choiza appeared on the stage. They didnt have get giddy reception that Seventeen received, but their presence demanded admire and they got it from the audience.

The duo started out their four-song set with “Baam”, a crowd-pleaser thats effortless to sing along to, even if youve never heard it before. The 2 veteran rappers moved round the stage hopefully and were joined by a DJ on the very finish of the walkout stage, which gave their set more of an intimate, club feel despite the truth that they were in a monumental venue. A funny moment came when they attempted to get the audience to do a decision and response, but the reaction ended up getting lost in translation and the audience just yelled back at them. Sooner or later they laughed and gave up. Then Crush returned to lend a handend out their set with the electro-club banger “Friday”. It was an ideal manner to end the show. Everyone was on their feet and jumping to the beat. Their performance reminded me that I have not begun to delve deep into their discography and I want to rectify that.

As someone who had no concept what to be expecting from KCON NY, I was left feeling very blissful that Id gotten an opportunity to enjoy it. Although I didnt know a lot of the artists in-depth to start, it didnt matter. Each single act was there to entertain the hyped audience and they all made the most in their curt sets. That, however, brings me to my biggest complaint – the show felt very short. It started late, around 7:45 p.m., and ran for a little not up to two hours. Crush got three songs, whilstsome other act got four, plus Seventeens special stage. I felt like some of the acts couldve gotten yet one more song, at the very least. If not, some other exceptional stage wouldve been ideal. Night 1 felt very rushed to me.

Going into the show, I was also interested to lookwhat type of reception the Day 1 line-up would get. There wasnt a truly big-name headliner and I doubt I was the best wondering if there would be amplepastime to warrant two nights of concerts. To be fair, Day 1 didnt have the turn-out of Day 2. There were masses of empty seats in the arena and the pits were most effectivepart full. For the fans that were there, though, it surely wasnt a query once the show got going. These acts brought their A game to the Prudential Center and i've a feeling that everyone in the audience left feeling (mostly) satisfied. I, for one, was left short of more.

By that measuring stick, Day 1 of KCON NY 2016 was a certain success.
