Me and my sis came early this time, or so we thought. When we reached Wisma MCA around 2:30pm, there were already people lining up. We join the line for Zone A and prepare to wait for hours. After waited for almost 2 and a half hours, we finally got in. I was worried about sneaking in the camera but it was done perfectly well. I did the water bottle trick again and managed to get pass the security without getting my bag checked.
The hall, Dewan San Choon were quickly filled with people in just minutes. We managed to get a good spot next to a pakcik with his children. The audience were entertained with 2AM MVs and DiGi commercials before the show begin. Then the host, Jin from Hitz.fm came out and entertain the crowd. He did his job well, I should say.
Before the concert begin, 4 students from Bentley Music gave out a performance, which was a instrumentals medley of 2AM songs. It was pretty cool, despite the fact that the speaker was deafening. The saxophone sound was too loud. But it was bearable.
Then the boys came out and the crowd went crazy. What amused me was that the fans who came are comprised of various types of people, not just a bunch of screaming fangirls like in SS3 or JYJ Showcase. For instance, the malay pakcik beside us were screaming the loudest. lol. There was a video played. The video tells how Jinwoon was feeling unsatisfied because he had no solo project like other members and that he never sang a chorus part of the song. He ranted and tried to write a rock song to create his own solo career. It was hilarious.
The boys did a great job singing. It was so good I thought I was listening to the album.
The boys had fun with their fans through games session on stage. Jo Kwon showed his Kkap-ness. lol too precious.
Then we sang them birthday song and gave them a Twin Tower cake. Changmin and Kwon looked so intrested with the cake. Changmin even tried to eat the plastic bridge!
Then they sang an accapella of Sisqo’s Incomplete as a gift for fans. It was too beautiful for words.
They sang ‘I Did Wrong’ and boy they really can’t dance. lol. And the pakcik beside my sister was dancing along to the robot-like dance and even stumping his feet while singing along. His kids were staring at him, probably shocked or embarrassed. I can’t imagine their pain.
After singing ‘Like Crazy’ they went backstage as if it’s over. A video played again, and this time it tells the story of how 2AM got together. Starting with Jo Kwon who trained for years, then he met the clumsy Seulong, the mischievous maknae Jinwoon and lastly the fresh from military Changmin.
Then they returned with an encore of ‘This Song’.
“Whenever you call us, we’ll come again.” – Changmin.
We drive home, in the rain and stuck in the traffic jam, but happy and satisfied. I’m gave the props to UMM and Digi (esp Digi) for organizing such a great showcase. They gave us drinks while waiting in line, and those yellow balloons to cheer.lol. I regret missing the last Cube concert (Digi Kpop Concert), but surely won’t miss it any more in the future.
And please bring SNSD next time and make Malaysian Sones really happy.
