Here is the 2nd part of the fan account..
After we left the pre recording, we went back to the queueing area outside MBC building and continued to wait.
Not long after, someone came out looking very happy and shared the news that C.N.BLUE was first! Actually, i didn't know what they were first for, but most likely it was their ranking or album sales or so.
All the fans were very happy and then we were told that becauseC.N.BLUE was first, we get to go in and watch the full live show!!
It was absolutely OH MY GOD for me, because i really didn't expect myself to be able to watch the full live music show!!
We waited for a while more and those with the Musiccore tickets entered the studio. Then, we were asked to go into the studio and the only seats left were the last 2 rows. We filled up the seats and the standing space at the back consisted of WG SUJU and other fans.
It was really exciting, but at that time we couldn't see any stars on stage yet.
Then, we heard cheers and from the C.N.BLUE fan crowd too, so i quickly looked down and saw Yong Hwa walking out with the other 2 Wonder Girls emcees.
They went to one side of the studio, where there was their emceeing backdrop.
I kept looking through the bino to see what Yong Hwa was doing, lol.
The show quickly started and Yong Hwa did a REALLY good opening. He was totally a failed emcee turned 360 degree and he was so confident and he spoke so well!
I was really happy for him and i couldn't stop spazzing over his emceeing. lol.
After he did the opening and the 1st performance started on stage, he went back to the seats beside the emcee backdrop and when he did, he accidentally walked past the spot light which shone right into his eyes. He did a quick jerking reaction and then laughed at himself for that. He was shocked. Lol.
It was so funny.
He coughed a few times while resting.
Then, the other performances started.
In between performances, there was some short emceeing and while getting back to their emcee seats again, Yong hwa and the 2 wondergirls got into a small confusion to where to sit, so Yong Hwa quickly gestured to them for them to sit first. Such a polite gentleman!
I shall move on to C.N.BLUE 's performance.
Since their performance was pre recorded, they didn't perform again during the live show. However, what we saw was WAYYY cuter! The 3 members came onto the stage and Min Hyuk carried Yong Hwa's guitar and the 3 of them just "played" standing on the stage for fan service. They were just posing most of the time and originally Yong hwa wasn't up onstage with them. He was still glued to his emcee seat until the producer urged him to go up. Since his position was taken up by the playful Min Hyuk, he went to stand behind them and "played" the role as the drummer.
*UPDATE! I FOUND FANCAMS OF IT*
bleah, i duno why some people can smuggle camera and take such good fancams but well, i wasn't brave enough.
i realized that ALL of them exchanged instruments! As mentioned, Min Hyuk took main guitar and Yong hwa became the drummer, then Jong Hyun took bass (lol), Jung Shin took Jong Hyun's guitar .
Yong Hwa started to hit the air with imaginary drum sticks and though it was all imaginary, he looked as though he KNEW how to play the drums for LOVE. Then, he did the signature Min hyuk drumstick spinning quite a few times with the eye smile. DAMNNN CUTE. Damn freaking cute!
This showed that they really do play around with each other in real live (and not just all image moulding on screen!)
So they just played around on stage for about 3/4 of the song, then bowed and leave the stage so that the following group could come on stage and prepare.
After that, I just continued to watch Yong Hwa and before i knew it, he already bade goodbye for Musiccore and went backstage... Couldn't really understand Korean still, but it kind of sounded like he thanked the audience and all.. So ya, it kind of ended here.
It was really a wonderful experience. To watch C.N.BLUE live, listen to them sing live and watch Yong Hwa emcee. I was really lucky to be able to see Yong hwa emcee, because it's not always that the original Musiccore emcees will suddenly pause emceeing and even rarer that my favourite artiste will emcee in place of them. ^^
So this ends my fan account for Musiccore.
I know you guys have some questions regarding musicshows and how recording works. so i will be explaining now.
For all 4 music shows, there are prerecording and live show. Some artistes get to have pre recording, usually those more big shot ones because they get to have more chances to have better takes.C.N.BLUE always does pre recording, probably because of ther nature of their music.
For prerecording, fans of those artistes get to watch inside the studio but have to leave right after they end.
During the live show, those artistes that did not pre record will really perform 100% live, but for those that had pre recording, they will only show the recording on screen during the "live" show, and during this time, the stage could be empty, or the artistes will come on stage and do a short fan service performance alongside the recording, but of course, only recording will be shown on tv.
That is why, artistes have more time to slot themselves on stage (if not, why do you think the shows can run consecutively without any noticeable time of preparation?)
Also, if you are wondering, how is it possible they kept changing the backdrops for different idols, and all of them are so fanciful?
Actually, on stage, there are already 3 different backdrops adjacent to each other. Certain idols will use different backdrops. Also, during pre recording, they would have set up even more fanciful backdrops and after that, they will take it down immediately to show the original 3 backdrops.
On screen, everything looks REALLY nice and MAGNIFIED, but in real life, the backdrops are really small. Camera angle really does wonders.
Also,. the most important: how to watch music shows?
For all 4 music shows, it is COMPLETELY FREE to watch.
However, you need to put in effort to watch.
Musicbank(since always) and Musiccore (now apparently) requires tickets to their live full show. For Musicbank, you have to call in right after the week's show ends to bid for the following week's tickets.
Not sure how for Musiccore. It is not easy to get these tickets.
For MNet and Inkigayo, i am not too sure how to get to watch the full live. But most likely ,all you need to do is queue.
For pre recording, you just have to queue. Better for you to already have one group that you already supported a lot and having promotional activities on the music show. Just arrive early before their pre recording, best at about 8am (or depending on their recording time) and queue with their fans.
Usually they don't ask you questions or whatsoever, but they have a fan leader taking charge of the queue order. They will write down your name and check you attendance once every hour or 2 hours.
Most importantly, you need to have their latest album with you. And even best, if you are their official member already.
They usually give priority to first, official members, then followed by those who bought albums. First come first serve basis.
C.N.BLUE 's leader and in chargeds were REALLY nice and very very friendly. They really mingled well with the fans, because they themselves are fans too. The FNC in charge were quite ok too, not unfriendly.
C.N.BLUE 's fans consisted a lot of older females, some ahjummas too. They have a lot of international fans. Myself is one, I met some Japanese ahjumma fans too.
I went to Musicbank to watch super junior pre recording and SME were really strict. They require you to open up the album to show them that the CD is there. Also, during Musiccore queueing, a lot of fans "borrowed" cds and SME staff were REALLY fierce at them and scolded them like crazy.
So, best that you don't fake as a fan, and support them by buying albums. Go queue early and try to speak to the korean fans to get some help and advice.
Research for yourself on how to get to the 4 recording places for the 4 music shows ^^
I still have some other random fan accounts. Please wait for my part 3!
