FAN ACCOUNT OF MAMA PART 1! 🙂
I sincerely hope that I can give justice to our whole MAMA experience! ❤ I have so much to say that I don’t even know where to begin and I don’t even know if I actually put into words the euphoria that we felt seeing our favorite artists, most especially Dara, perform live! 🙂
Previous to the event itself, there was only two of us literally stalking Dara and the rest of YG Family. When I say stalking, I really really really mean stalking. 🙂 We would just stay outside their practice area for hours on end waiting for them (but most of our encounters with Dara and the rest of YG family were by chance) and there were times that we even forgot to eat. We were so scared that we would miss them that going to the bathroom wasn’t even an option (I know, crazy right?) but we really really really just wanted the full experience. I don’t think we will ever get another experience such as what we experienced in Macau where all of our favorite artists, especially Dara, were just an arms reach away! ❤
At around noon on the 28th, we checked in the Venetian Hotel, there, we met up with 4 more Dara obsessed fangirls! 🙂 From this point on, there were already 7 of us – ALL DARA OBSESSED! 🙂
We started preparing and wore our Dara shirts and brought all our signs downstairs including Philippine flags! We really wanted to represent! ❤ We actually made a strong statement! Imagine 7 fangirls all wearing Dara shirts walking towards the venue with huge Dara/2ne1/BigBang signs carrying Philippine flags! We were then interviewed by some Korean, Japanese and even Australian reporters asking why we were there, who we were supporting, etc.
FINALLY THE DOORS OPENED AND WE WENT TO OUR SEATS. I would like to make a special shoutout to one of us who was able to get complimentary tickets from MAMA! She was really really really near the stage! 🙂 You can’t imagine the excitement we were feeling at this point. We were in a huge arena with fellow kpop crazy fans. The feeling was something else. We waited and the awards show started and out came 2ne1!!! We started screaming and screaming our hearts off! I swear, there were sooo many 2ne1 fans in that arena. The whole arena was filled with screams for 2ne1. The experience was something else.
Then came 2ne1’s performance!!! When the lights dimmed and thunder could be heard, our hearts were beating so fast!!! Everyone still didn’t know who was going to perform but when CL shouted “braaah!” we knew it was 2ne1 and then the arena erupted into screams! Like really erupted into deafening screams! Some even stood up and others stomped their feet. The excitement was something else. The stage that they prepared was pure AWESOMENESS!!! I really felt chills!!! Their introduction was really something else. The arena was filled with sounds of thunder.. Ahhh!!! I just can’t explain it. Then 2ne1 appeared looking as fierce as ever. I have to say though, booooo to mic failure! I swear! That was the only damper to their performance! The mic was really really really bad.
I honestly was just staring at Dara probably for the entire performance! Hehehe! (Sorry, Dara obsessed fangirl right here!) And when she did her solo part for “Clap Your Hands!” I can’t even remember if I was screaming or if I was just staring with my mouth hanging open! (That’s how much of a fangirl I honestly am!)
THEIR INTRODUCTION TO CAN’T NOBODY WAS REALLY A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! The entire entire entire arena was filled with green strobe lights (do you call it strobe lights? Sorry I don’t know!) Like literally, there were like green lasers everywhere! The effect was amazing! Gah! I wish you were all there really! I want to make this fan account perfect but as you can see, I am running out of adjectives! And then 2ne1 appeared and they were glittering like it was no one’s business! Their costumes coupled with the green lasers was something else!!! It was all so surreal! Again, I just stared at Dara for the entire performance! I just can’t get enough of her!
2ne1 ended their performance with deafening screams from the audience! I think I’m sick now because of screaming too much for Dara and 2ne1! ❤
THEIR PERFORMANCE WAS AMAZING FROM START TO FINISH!!! ❤
FAN ACCOUNT OF MAMA PART 2:
This part will be totally dedicated to GD-YB-TOP Awesomeness and of course Dara fangirling too! ❤
Before anything else, I just really really really have to say…. NO ONE CAN WORK A STAGE AND A CROWD TO UTTER CHAOS AND MAYHEM LIKE GD, YB AND TOP!!!! THEIR PERFORMANCE WAS PURE PERFECTION AND AWESOMENESS! HANDS DOWN THE BEST STAGE OF THE NIGHT!!! I am 2ne1 biased but I have to say, their stage was like no other! Their stage is just one of the many reasons why I totally adore and am completely loyal to YG Family!
THE AIRED VERSION OF THEIR PERFORMANCE TOTALLY DID NOT GIVE JUSTICE TO THE AWESOMENESS THAT IS GD, YB AND TOP! Ahhh! *insert fangirl scream here*
Their performance, as we all know by now, started with YB singing Break It Down. If you guys read my earlier fan account, I really thought that I heard him practicing I’ll Be There. I was wrong! 🙂 His performance was awesome!!! (I can’t believe how many times I’m using the word awesome here!) He danced like it was no ones business and he was having a lot of fun and working the crowd. The screams coming from everyone was just deafening. And when I Need A Girl started, I think I was having heart palpitations.
If you guys were able to read my previous fan account, I said that Dara followed GD, YB and TOP inside the practice area prior to MAMA. I had a gut feeling that Dara was going to do I Need A Girl with YB but I honestly didn’t want to get my hopes up! But then again, why would Dara follow the three inside the arena if not to practice right? 🙂 When YB started performing INAG, I was staring at Dara and my heart sank a little because she was just in her seat. I thought she would change or something and when the other dancers started coming out, I became a little sad… BUT… when I saw Ji Hye as one of the dancers, I started getting high again and started chanting, “let Dara be in INAG, please let Dara be in INAG< let Dara be in INAG!” And when YB started walking towards Dara, I was literally screaming my soul, heart, everything out!!! Gah! He danced in front of her and held out his hand… Dara stood up and they faced each other… I was holding my breath in waiting for what YB was going to do… AND WHEN HE KISSED HER GAHHHHHHH, THE WHOLE ARENA LITERALLY ERUPTED INTO SCREAMS!!! LIKE SCREAMING FANGIRLS EVERYWHERE!!! More and more screams when YB brought Dara in the middle of the stage. And when they got close, I was having heart palpitations again. It was something else to see! And then Dara got shot!!! I was like… “WHAT???? DID YB SHOOT DARA? HE DIDN’T RIGHT??? WHO SHOT DARA??? SOMEBODY SHOT DARA??? WHAT’S HAPPENING??? WHY DID SOMEBODY SHOOT DARA?” (Again, I am a true-blue Dara fangirl!) I got confused and I think the entire arena hushed. They got confused too!!!
And then the ticking clock came and somebody wearing white came out with his glowing whip!!! Gah!!! The whole arena erupted again!!! LIKE LITERALLY ERUPTED!!! It was deafening!!! Without a doubt I KNEW IT WAS TOP!!! (How can I not when I am also a TOP fangirl?) He worked that stage like it was no ones business! He flipped that whip over and over again coupled with the lighting and sound effects! Gah!!! *insert fangirl scream here again* and when the other dancers came out, I think I lost my eardrums because everyone was just screaming, jumping and god knows what! 🙂 Then TOP took off what he was wearing and the screams started again! I swear!!! TOP is TOP!!! He gives off this yeah-i’m-great-and-awesome-so-just-deal-with-it-and-its-none-of-your-business vibe! I don’t even know if you can use fierce to describe a guy but he was just F-I-E-R-C-E!!! He was smirking, glaring and raising his eyebrows like it was no one’s business and rapping like the true MAN that he is! He barely moved around but he’s TOP!!! He just stands there and fangirls literally swoon! Gah! I wish I can give justice and describe TOP’s performance the way it should be described but I just can’t!!! And when he stood on that platform and it rose… Should we all just say… TOP IS THE MAN AND HE KNOWS IT!!! Say it with me, “TOP IS THE MAN! TOP IS THE MAN! TOP IS THE MAN!”
Then the lights dimmed and suddenly YB came out and pointed a gun at TOP!!! At this point I was like.. “There’s a story? There’s s kit? What’s happening?” I’m usually not a slow person but due to the total fangirl high I was experiencing, I couldn’t really process everything that has been happening so well. This was where the aired version did not give their performance justice. The part where YB was pointing a gun towards TOP was very dramatic live. You could feel the goosebumps literally… You could feel that YB really really really wanted to kill TOP. And then TOP stood up and pointed a gun towards YB….. THEN THE LIGHTS DIMMED, SMOKE WAS SCENE AND THE SCREEN AT THEIR BACK OPENED AND LO AND BEHOLD – THE PIMP DADDY HIMSELF, GD!!!
I have to say honestly, the arena went crazy when YB performed, the arena thundered when TOP came out BUT WHEN GD STRUTTED INTO THAT STAGE LIKE THE PIMP DADDY THAT HE WAS… I THOUGHT THE ARENA WAS GOING TO COLLAPSE FROM ALL THE FANGIRLS SCREAMING THEIR SOULS OFF! No one, like no one can work a stage and crowd like GD. He strutted in there and walked up to everyone like the pimp daddy that he was… He was such a pimp and moving around that stage like it was his own concert!!! GD barely stood still!!! He was moving around and around, working the crowd and just being THE GREAT G-DRAGON!!! And when he and TOP started performing, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, I’m pretty sure that I wasn’t the only one who wanted to faint right then and there! G-DRAGON AND TOP ARE PIMPS!!! P-I-M-P-S!!!
And then the screen at the back started to flame and out came YB with Hallelujah!!! The crowd started to go wild again!!! At this point everyone was either standing, jumping, screaming, stomping, waving their hands in the air or doing all of the above. There is nothing like being in a live audience with an entire crowd who share an equal obsession with GD, YB AND TOP! They were all over that huge stage!!!
And then the lights dimmed! GD and TOP started pointing a gun at YB…. It was total darkness in the arena and just a spotlight on GD, YB and TOP!!! Can I just say GOOSEBUMPS??? Everything was like in slow motion! I don’t think the aired version, or even our fancam can give justice to what they were trying to invoke at that point. OH THE ANGST! And then YB raised both of his guns and pointed it at GD and TOP! THE FEELING RIGHT THEN AND THERE WAS AMAZING!!! The crowd was either screaming or holding their breathes in to see what would happen! And then the lights dimmed and shots could be heard!!! *Insert total fangirl pandemonium right here*
I thought that GD, YB and TOP were just going to perform “normallly”. I already saw them before in Bangkok and I already got goosebumps from their performance but their MAMA stage was something else. Combine singing, an awesome stage, with a story line and acting with a flair or drama.. and top it all off with the awesomeness that is GD, YB and TOP… PURE PERFECTION!!! BEST STAGE OF THE NIGHT HANDS DOWN!!!
And then the questions of the storyline came rushing in… What happened? What is the story? 🙂 We can all make our own version of the story. And be still my fangirl heart that DARA WAS THE GIRL BEHIND THAT STORY! It was a story of love, angst and revenge! Oh boy! I can see so many fanfics right and left because of their stage!
What I totally love about Big Bang is that when they perform, they perform like its no one’s business but when they stop performing, they become the nice and lovable boys that they are. I saw this happen in Bangkok.
Am I fangirling too much? I can’t even remember what I wrote down! All I know that it was long and I used so many adjectives over and over again!
THEIR STAGE WAS P-E-R-F-E-C-T!!!! A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!! 🙂
You can see their stage through our fancam too! ❤ I have to give a special shoutout to @MOMJJANG for staying still and taking a wonderful fancam and allowing the rest of us fangirls to go wild and crazy!
I know I didn’t give justice to their stage, how can you describe something that great really? I really tried my best! 🙂
FAN ACCOUNT OF MAMA PART 3! ❤
We all know what happened right??? 2ne1 took home so many awards and took home 2 out of the 3 major awards that night! *Let us all scream and say, 2ne1 jjang! 2ne1 jjang!*
This fan account will be dedicated to what happened after the major awards! 🙂
So, all the artists present went up on stage for the final bow! 🙂 At this point, all the lights were up and we were standing up waving our Dara/2ne1/BigBang banners up in the air hoping for Dara to notice us! We were screaming “Dara!!! Dara!!! Dara!!! Sandara Park we love you!!!”
Then 2PM called out Miss A to the circular stage in the middle for a final bow. It was just 2PM and Miss A bowing in the middle while 2ne1 and Gummy were at the main stage at the back. They honestly didn’t know what to do. They couldn’t decide if they were supposed to join 2PM and Miss A bowing in the middle of the stage. I was screaming.. “HEY 2NE1!!!! GO TO THE CENTER OF THE STAGE, YOU DESERVE TO BE IN THE LIMELIGHT! YOU DESERVE IT BECAUSE YOU WON SO MANY AWARDS!!!” They were really hesitating because they didn’t know what to do. CL just went off stage while Bom, Dara and Minzy just stayed at the side. After a while, Dara and Minzy started going off stage already but I think they decided that they should take a final bow… “THAT’S RIGHT GIRLS!!! YOU SHOULD BASK IN THE LIMELIGHT!!! GO GET ‘EM!!”
So, they started going towards the front and I have to say, BOM IS SO CUTE!!! She was doing heart signs and jumping up and down for the crowd and pouting and giving everyone kisses! So adorable! I am loving her more and more! We have a fancam of this but I am not sure if its already uploaded in http://www.youtube.com/itsamakulhate18. Bom is too adorable for words!
So, 2ne1 stayed in the center stage and everyone started clapping for them. We were going crazy waving our banners and screaming Dara‘s name in order for her to notice us!!! And she did! Yahooo! ❤ WE LOVE YOU SANDARA PARK!
2ne1 made their exit and we went out of the arena totally satisfied fangirls! ❤
Just a side note: To those who were wondering where YB was during the final bow, he left the arena right before the Wonder Girls performed! 🙂
And since I am a total Dara fangirl, I just want to dedicate a somewhat short post about her! 🙂
I know that some were bummed out because of what she was wearing. I was too but I have to say, SHE WAS SIMPLY STUNNING THAT NIGHT! I don’t know if its just because I am Dara biased but she was simply glowing!!! Like she was shining from afar. It was like oil was poured all over her face and it was reflecting off the lights! Hahaha! I don’t know why I just said that but it really looked like she was shining! Hahaha! SHE WAS GORGEOUS THAT NIGHT! SIMPLY GORGEOUS! Her beautiful face plus mega-watt smile was just something else!
Some might wonder why Korean Media give such a big fuss over Dara‘s skin… Seriously… her skin is really something to fuss over! She’s so white and seriously luminous! Shining! Its like her skin has a glow of its own.
Ok! I think I’m fangirling too much already! 🙂 Hehehe.. On to my next post! ❤
FAN ACCOUNT OF 2NE1 AT THE MAMA AFTER PARTY! ❤
Since this will just be short, I decided to just post this up! 🙂 My fan account about GD, TOP and YB will take longer and more spazzing! Hahaha!
We arrived at the MAMA After Party and went straight to the VIP lounge. I think we were there for just around 10 minutes when we started to hear a commotion. Our table was really near the path that’s why we were able to run there right away. At this point, there was only a few of us in the VIP area so there was no crowd pushing us back and forth. So we had a direct view of 2ne1 up close! Like really really really close! I could even see the details of their make-up! ❤ We didn’t even have enough time to prepare because we didn’t really expect that they were going to show up. They entered and walked slowly… I started screaming “Dara! Dara! Dara! Sandara Park I love you!!! I love you!” *insert more fangirl screaming here* She smiled her shy but mega-watt smile at us. I have to say, at least this time around I had the wits to scream, “Bom, CL and Minzy” too! Hehehe.. Yay! We were so near them with no barricade between us. Truly, the only thing preventing us from touching them and ganging up on them was R-E-S-P-E-C-T! ❤ I am very proud to say that we kept a respectable amount of distance from them. We really didn’t want to push ourselves. We were just happy seeing Dara up close! 🙂 Truly, we were really really really happy! Euphoric even! We aren’t crazy obsessed Dara fangirls for nothing! Hehehe
I just have to add, DARA WAS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! She changed into a black jacket (no more purple fur) for the after party. The rest of the girls kept their MAMA clothes on.
Sorry! We really don’t have any fancam of them entering! We were too star struck to be so close to them and they really surprised us. We didn’t have time to prepare. There were 6 of us at the lounge and I don’t think one of us was able to get a fancam. Hopefully I’m wrong! 🙂 We’ll see!
A few minutes after them, GD, TOP and YB came in!!! This time around we were prepared!!! We have fancams of them entering. But this time around, there were already a couple of bodyguards. They weren’t prepared when 2ne1 came in, but they were prepared when GD, YB and TOP came in. I think its because majority of the crowd were fangirls! *I’ll talk about them in my fan account dedicated to them* 🙂
To be honest, 2ne1 completely disappeared into the Super VIP lounge. We barely saw a glimpse of them unlike GD, TOP and YB. There was only one time when Bom and Minzy sorta appeared and they weren’t even facing the crowd. They were talking to some American.
And sad to say, 2ne1 left the After Party right away. They probably stayed like less than 30 minutes. We got sad and bummed out after that. I think its because they had an early flight to catch. Papa YG was at the party and maybe he just wanted his girls to rest. Plus of course, Minzy is still a minor.
They went all ninja on us too. They avoided the huge crowd and passed secretly through our area. We were just sitting down when all of a sudden I saw Dara‘s head! We ran near them again and screamed, “Dara! Dara! Dara! Dara! Dara!” again… She smiled and they were gone! POOF! WORSE THAN CINDERELLA! ❤
GD, YB and TOP are completely a different story altogether! They were partying the night away and flirting with the fans left and right! 🙂
