We're only a week away before KCON 2017 AUSTRALIA arrives!!
Since the biggest Korean culture and K-pop festival in the world is nearly here, we thought we might get ourselves emotionally ready for the event by going through a rundown of what one might expect at a convention like this.
From the initial rumours right to the inevitable post-KCON blues, here are the nine emotional stages one might experience before, during, and after a K-pop concert!
9. The initial rumours
This is where it all begins. Your bias group is touring in Thailand (which is only 6,000kms) away and one of the members liked a koala pic on Instagram. Surely this must all mean something...
8. The concert announcement!
YES, all those rumours are true! Now's the time to get a job, start saving, get your parent's permission, and get ready for when the tickets are released!
7. 2 months after the concert announcement...
No job, no money, therefore no tickets...
Alright, desperate times call for desperate measures - it's time to ask your parents!
6. First things first, all the non-concert stuff
It's not just tickets you need to worry about, there's travel, accommodation, food, and various other miscellaneous things that inevitably come up!
5. Stressing over tickets
Repeatedly hitting refresh while waiting for the tickets to FINALLY be released is the most stressful part ever. But when you get through, it's the BEST feeling ever! Well, second to the actual concert...
4. The long wait for the concert....
You have sorted out your tickets, accommodation, and all the other things. Now the only thing left to do is wait...
3. Concert prep
Since there's time before the concert gets here, might as well get prepped for the event by getting an album (or 10), a couple of lightsticks, and maybe a shirt or 2...
2. Day of the concert!!
THE DAY YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR IS FINALLY HERE!
Just remember to follow all the fan etiquette hacks and it will be the BEST NIGHT EVER!
1. Post-concert blues...
It was the best night ever - but your bias group are now gone...
But it's alright, there's always the next concert to look forward to!
