Big Bang Alive Galaxy Tour Manila in my opinion is one of the best things that has happened to the Philippine Kpop fandom. And yes, I’m biased of course. Excuse in advance if I sound like I just downed a liter of Honey Boo Boo juice. It’s only been a few hours since the boys walked out of the stage and man, I’m still High High! This fan account is incoherent, non-chronological, spazzy and full of crack but hey, it’s fun! Please read at your own risk. LELZ. [click to enlarge photos]
Background: I got into Kpop in 2004 because of Dong bang Shin Ki but left about a year after and moved to the Johnny’s Ent & Japanese music fandom. I’ve known Big Bang since their debut but it was their song, Haru Haru that got me active again in Kpop. So to say that those boys are special to me is an understatement.
We were invited by our dear friend, The Official Madam Happee Sy, initially for Jimmy to be a photographer and I, to help out in the coverage. However, things didn’t turn out as planned and last minute, we ended up just watching the show, which is not a bad thing at all. For months, I’ve tried to suppress and deny my excitement and I vowed to myself I won’t have any expectations. BEST. IDEA. EVER.
Since it’s the day that I’d meet the man of my dreams, I came prepared with fashion and shit. When in doubt, pekpek shorts.
Everything from this point onward are Kring’s thoughts during the event, not necessarily in chronological order.
- DAFUQ soooo many fangirls! LOL. Jimmy is scared.
- My friends are EVERYWHERE. Maybe we should just have a PKCI meeting or something.
- Happppeeeee! I’m channeling my inner emo and you’re in a sparkly aquamarine shirt! Angel and devil ang peg? Hahahaha!
- Kay. So my black hair is the talk of the town. Haven’t you guys seen it on Facebook? Haaar!
- No shit, this is the only Kpop concert that I’ve been to where 50% of the audience:
1. have blonde/dyed hair
2. are wearing spikes, blings and fake leather
3. are dressed up like they’re going to a club, smokey eyes inlcuded
4. don’t look like they’re Kpop fans at all. Wait, you’re really wearing Kimonos? O__o
- Dear kuya usher from MOA, why the hell is the seating arrangement weird and shuffled?!?! Stop the meaning of this! We’re supposed to be closer to the extended stage!!!
- OMFG IT’S ONLY 8:30 WHY ARE YOU STARTING ON TIME IT’S TECHNICALLY 30 MINUTES LATE BUT WE’RE PINOYS YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO START AN HOUR AFTER!
KPOP royalty in the house, bitchazzz!
- DAMN FUCK HOLY SHEEETTTTTTT BIIIIIIIG BAAANNNGGGGG!!!! *flails screams waves light stick in the air and loses composure and breeding*
OH GAWD I MISSED DOING COMEDY. How the eff did I become so boring?! And for that.. I bring you this new video! ^^
Do you wanna be a Spice Girl? Wanna learn how to dance like Britney Spears (circa 1998)? Do you love the 90′s, too? I did this video to commemorate my love for the 90′s British and American pop music and also because I miss impersonating celebrities for the crack and lulz (I actually won an a gold medal for “Best in Impersonation” in high school. True story)!!!
Our mop has a cameo in this video.
Hope you guys enjoy this and please, I looove those artists and this is just for fun! Exaggeration is a part of it hahaha! Oh, and if you decide to do these moves, please record it and do a video response! Let’s have fun~
Watch the video after the jump!
It was around January when I saw him for the first time. Star World relentlessly replayed American Idol so even on an early Saturday evening, while working out, I got to watch the show. AI auditions are normally entertaining and I would watch it for the humor as did many people. Suddenly, a guy came into the audition room, looking like any other hopeful, without a hint of flamboyance or star factor. He was the last guy from the Savannah leg and was bland as a piece of bond paper.
And then he sang Stevie Wonder’s Superstition. I stopped running. His voice and awkward mannerisms made him look like he had electricity going through his body. J.Lo said my thoughts out loud. Pretty good, I thought. Randy made him get his guitar and he sang his unique rendition of MJ’s thriller. I knew at that moment that I was gonna watch the the entire season.
Phillip Phillips was the guy’s name and funny as it may sound, I believed even then that it was a “showbiz” name – like Madonna or Beyonce Knowles or even Lady Gaga (as opposed to Stefanie).
I haven’t cared about Idol since the Jasmine Trias season. Sure, I followed season 4, too up until Carrie won. I also rooted for both Davids of season 8 and would occasionally watch performances of idol finalists in the past years. However, only now did I actually give a shit again and I didn’t even know why then.
I would’ve lost track of Phillip during the Hollywood and Vegas legs if not for Heejun Han and his hilarious personality. I loooooved that guy (not because he’s Korean but that helped too, sue me) and I enjoyed watching him quarrel with the obnoxious cowboy dude. I realized at that time that wow, he was in the same group as Phillip Phillips and they went all the way to the Top 24 together!!! I didn’t know they were best friends in the competition until Heejun was informed that he was in the Top 24 and P2 was the only person who was there to congratulate him.
The tissue tears. Oh, how Koreans love those.
PhilJun bromance. Shipping it since Feb 2012.
Even as early as the Top 24, I was a solid Phillip Phillips and Heejun Han supporter and only on the Top 12 did I even learn that a Pinoy that made it that far, too, just like Thia last year. My top 3 in the top 10 had always been P2, Han and Jay.
