[KOREA TRIP 2016] RAPBEAT SHOW (+ VLOG)

On the seventh day of my trip to Seoul, South Korea we went to MBC World Munhwa Broadcasting Theme Park during the day. I'll be writing about that on some other time. After that we headed back to our hostel in Hongdae, changed clothes and did our makeup etc. and headed towards Lotte Hotel Seoul where Rapbeat Show & Nite 2016 was held. I randomly found out about the concert on instagram and immediately told Krisse (click here to read her post) "Girl, we gotta get the tickets asap" and so we bought them online before the trip.

Do you see any familiar names on the lineup? The lineup was filled with my favorites and also some artists I've never really paid attention until now. My memory card was running out so I wasn't able to really take any photos/videos during ADV, Huckleberry P and VMC. I mean I did take some photos and clips but I realized they were so bad I had to delete them asap to get more memory and I wanted to focus on Nafla, Zico, Zion.T and Illionaire Records... That's another reason why you should check out Krisse's post for better photos :D

Before the concert we met up with one girl from Germany and we went to one cafe and got smoothies and exchanged our names etc. After that we walked to Lotte Hotel Seoul and actually managed to walk to a totally wrong direction at first... We somehow found the right place and got in the super long queue. Magically the queue got longer and longer after us and we were able to get inside in just 30 minutes!

Inside the building we waited for another 30 minutes because the tickets needed to be changed for bracelets and they also checked our IDs as minors weren't allowed there. The concert was held at the gorgeous Crystal Ballroom of Lotte Hotel Seoul and when we arrived DJ Tezz was lifting up the mood. We ended up really close to the stage thanks to the fact that the stage was super wide.

Microdot at Rapbeat Show 2016
Microdot was the first one performing. His show was about 15 minutes long and I was like "Huh is it already over?" and realized I didn't take any decent photos or videos... Oh well better luck next time !

Nafla at Rapbeat Show 2016
Next up was Nafla and I was so happy he was performing ! My photos aren't that great but I filmed his performance so watch my videos to get in the mood :D He sang my favorite song Dope Boy and also some other songs.

After Nafla there was Bewhy - yeah, THAT Bewhy who recently won Show Me The Money - but I don't really have any material. Watching him live was like watching something that's not from this planet. He was so good ! I'm so glad I saw him live.

After Bewhy it was ADV's time to perform. ADV aka Angdreville is a group of underground rappers such as Olltii, JJK and Seo Chulgoo. They were so cute and I was so focused on their performance that I didn't take any photos besides those few above...

Huckleberry P at Rapbeat Show 2016
I realized this is the only photo I have of Huckleberry P. He was performing after ADV and performed for about 15 minutes. I didn't know who he was before this and I'm glad I now found his music recently. I don't really remember anything about his performance... Anyhow after him VMC aka Viz Major Crew took the stage. I don't have any photos or videos about them but they were good as well.

As the bigger names were coming the more I took photos and videos haha. First off among the big names was Zico of Block B. He performed many of his hit songs such as Tough Cookie and Boys & Girls with surprise guest Babylon. Zico's performance was one of the most anticipated and as soon as he started to appear the stage the audience was filled with phones and cameras. At this point I was really happy I was wearing shoes with heels and that I was taller than most of the audience. It was nice to see how Zico performs when he's alone compared to when he's with Block B (read my concert post here).

After Zico's performance Zion.T took the stage. It was nice to rest a bit because his songs aren't as hyped up as the others had. Zion.T also was the easiest "target" for photos because he didn't move as much as the others jumped up and down the stage. His stage presence was no joke and his voice is so beautiful. I heard some Korean guys in the audience talking how good he is and he's so cool from a mans perspective as well. Zion.T sang some of his hit songs such as No Makeup and Yanghwa Bridge and I might or might not have shed few tears during those songs.

Illionaire at Rapbeat Show 2016

Last but definitely not least was Illionaire Records aka Dok2, The Quiett and Beenzino. They were obviously the main of this concert as they were the last artist to be revealed before the ticket sales and so on. I'm super glad I was able to witness this moment in my life. When will I otherwise have the chance to see this trio in my life?! I was the most hyped up during Illionaire and I was a bit surprised how some people went back or left during their performance. Like... WHY would you do that? Anyhow they performed their solos as well as the always so popular YGGR ! See more on the videos below ~
