[Pexer’s Write Up] What Really Happens In A Kim Hyun Joong Concert


By: aprilstarr

Typically, we think of concerts as events filled with songs and dances performed by the artist in a special attire with or without backup dancers, with or without live music background. There are also front acts, intermission numbers, sale of memorabilia, maybe games and prizes given, audience participation and other interactive portions. The backdrop and other live projected images and sound prepare the audience and help sustain the charged atmosphere for the length of the show of about 2 hours or a little over. Taking of pictures are forbidden as flashing of lights from cameras are distracting and it is also a way of controlling the kind of pictures that may be released -a form of copyright issue. These are the content of a Kim Hyun Joong concert.

But more than the obvious and the standard content as well as innovative practices like high fives (previously a feature of fanmeets) in the ongoing KHJ World Tour 2014 concert, it is an up close encounter for both artist and audience with each other for the afternoon or night.

Kim Hyun Joong unabashedly admits he feels happiest when he meets his fans this way. What he acknowledges is the artist’s euphoria during performance. It is the high he feels after a number when the audience in return give their affection and approval with screaming of his name, chanting of his songs, waving of lights, thunderous applause. Even before performing he already senses the audience’s moods and inclinations. Besides their attendance ( I heard he didn’t want a very large audience), it is the close connection he feels while singing to them. His songs are his gifts from the heart to his fans.His hard work dedicated to them.

It is also in the concert that he relish the intimate conversation that goes between him and audience regardless of language barrier. It is here where he reveals his thoughts and plans. What fan will not be soft kneed becoming a confidant to Hyun Joong.

The audience, on the other hand, is immersed in that personal event not only hearing but seeing him in the flesh as well as being privy to a favorite artist’s thoughts. It is “you are mine” for both artist and audience alike. Audience say they are swayed by the swelling of emotion loving Hyun Joong as he loves them back.

Attendance in a Kim Hyun Joong concert is always an experience to remember, to bring home and own for a lifetime of being a fangirl/boy. It is this involvement that cement the relationship and maintain the loyalty of fans besides membership in fan’s clubs.

The atmosphere is a special one, fully charged and energized. The vibrations not unlike a magnetic field is also highly felt in its physical manifestations. In that momentary universe only Hyun Joong and his fans exist.

    Since I’ll never get to go to a concert by KHJ.. I’ve lived vicariously through the many fan made clips of live shows.. or I’ve bought a concert disk online (scary since I have no clue what I’m paying or if it will come) but from my personal experience I don’t know if I really like live concerts? I’ve been to many from other performers over the years.. and honestly I think they’ve all been very good.. but I almost feel like it’s no more real than the officially made Video’s of the songs, or interviews. I don’t mean the concerts aren’t good.. they are.. but they are staged just like the fan meetings, the interviews, the Song Video’s… what I do like at the Concerts is seeing the smile of the performers at the audience when they are truly in the moment and enjoying giving us the best performance they can.. and the smile on my face in response. It’s a REAL Time moment that can never be taken away from me, or the performer.
