On 24th December 2013, M Lee Min Woo celebrated his 10th Anniversary as a solo artist at his M Lee Min Woo’s X10 MAS Concert Live held at the UNIQLO AX in Gwanaru.
Though the concert started at 7:30 in the evening, fans began lining up from early in the morning in order to purchase official goods from the merchandise booths set up inside the UNIQLO AX hall.
Many fans were unable to buy the official merchandise, as they quickly sold out, especially the zip-up hoodies and masks. (Thanks a million to Junnie and Eunnie for helping my friend and I to buy the hoodies and masks) I arrived at the concert venue pretty late as I had classes in the morning till afternoon.
About 2,500 (if I’m not mistaken, correct me if I’m wrong) seats of the arena were filled within a few minutes, with almost everyone holding up an X10 MAS orange glow stick of some kind. The Dancing 9 Red Team Master – Popin J , Shinhwa Broadcast’s MC and Minwoo’s sister were also in the audience to support uri M oppa.
The concert began with a video that highlighted all of Minwoo’s greatest hits, until the M oppa appeared on stage with a “I-don’t-know-the-title-of-the-song’ :P (Sorry. I never listened any Minwoo’s songs)
In between performances, special videos of highlighting Minwoo’s solo history from 2003 until 2013 played, allowing fans to reminisce the past. Manhood > MC > Master > Movie > etc (Sorry I have a very bad memory)
The humorous mood subsided as the atmosphere became softer in the arena as Minwoo began to sweetly serenade with his new ballad song. Then, a second video began to play, this time focusing on the Shinhwa members (Eric, Hyesung and Junjin). They talked about Minwoo’s concert and how much efforts he has put in and so on, and the members started to tease Minwoo. (P/S: Eric oppa sooooo handsome!)
When the cheers subsided, Minwoo finally announced that the concert was coming to end. The fans began to whine. Minwoo began saying his good-bye messages, thanking fans for the support for the past 10 years and he disappeared from the stage as the fans started to ask for encore.
ENCORE! ENCORE! ENCORE! » LEE MIN WOO! LEE MIN WOO! LEE MIN WOO! » M OPPA! M OPPA! M OPPA!
The concert ran an impressive three hours, full of energetic performances that had the fans roaring in excitement.
After the concert, Junnie (mstylero), Eunnie (urihyesung & erowanie), a Taiwanese fan and I went to Shinhwa’s favourite Korean BBQ restaurant at Apgujeong to have our very late dinner.
P/S: I was really upset, non of the Shinhwa members come to the concert! Sighhhh~
