The first of its kind, KPOP NORTH was introduced as a convention aiming to bring more K-Pop artists north of the border, hopefully one day achieving the same degree of recognition as KCON in the States. And with its organizers fluent in the Korean language, the promise was far greater than Pop! Goes The World and their shady empty promises.
Needless to say, I wasn't particularly punctual, and my actions served to place me outside the GA+ crowd, nestled behind those sporting pink GA wristbands.
I had never been too familiar with the members prior to this day, though one thing is certain: trench coat-shedding Jaehyeong definitely made my heart skip a beat.
Every bit truthful, the member which your eyes tend to follow is, naturally, your bias in the group. Speaking specifically to VERIVERY, it quickly became apparent that my bias was the main rapper and leader, Dongheon.
"Hi Woosung, I like your face!" I piped, quoting the starting line of his solo debut track.
"I like your face too" he quipped with a lazy smile.
A near-shriek escaped my lips as I slid onto the final member of the group, Hajoon. "Thank you!!" was the only phrase I could muster.
The evening concerts were slated to start at 7pm. Dinner and The Krys was rushed and we soon jogged back.
He was a flawless performer who basked in the pursuance of his creations.
Sticking to me from the evening will forever be:
"여로분...You so cute."
