So, from the beginning of Kim So-hees set to the beginning of A Pinks, there was some trouble in my seating area. A concertgoer sitting near me was quite excitable and screaming loudly throughout the first half. This angered some of their neighbors and resulted in repeated warnings from concert staff and quite the vocal dispute. Unfortunately, for me, the argument inhibited my view and attention. By the time the concert attendee was escorted out, A Pink had finished singing their first song of the night, Luv. A Pink was really great live (even among all the craziness in my seating area). Bomi was charismatic, and vocally every member held their own. NoNoNo was probably one of the strongest overall performances of the night. They really knew how to get the crowd on their feet and participating during that song.

After A Pink, Cool took the stage and showed a dynamic performance. In red jumpers, they were dancing around, and nearly everyone was either dancing or ecstatically bobbing along. The trio showed that theyve still got moves as they executed their choreography to a tee. As Heejun stated before they got on stage, the crowd would regret it if they stayed seated during Cools performance.

Last but not least, TVXQ took the stage. It was definitely not a surprise to me how excited the stadium got. These two are legends. I remembered seeing them live once before during a SM Town Concert in LA, but they impressed me even more during their set at KMF. They performed Keep Your Head Down, and, man, is that choreography impressive to see live with my own two eyes. There was a little bit of old and new mixed in as they brought back Mirotic and Rising Sun to the stage before closing out the night with Catch Me. The audience was living it during the duos medley of songs, and it was a spectacular way to end the night.
