While my trip was booked because of Super Junior, I ended up seeing BIGSTAR so much more on this trip. It must be a sign. LOL.
BIGSTAR has been promoting their new single “달빛소나타 (Shine A Moonlight)” since 4 September 2015 and I found out that BIGSTAR was doing a pre-recording of Simply Kpop at Arirang on Monday morning, 21 September 2015 so needless to say, I made my way down to Arirang again.
I made a mistake during the ticket application to watch the pre-recording so I didn’t get allocated any tickets and I had to head down super early to join the fanclub queue.
When I arrived, there was no one else there so I proceeded to just walk around the main entrance until other fans started showing up.
NOTE: Please DO NOT take any photos or videos of the artist performing!! Also, even if you take sneaky shot of the stage like this to instagram for인증/proof purposes, please DO NOT post it online as a spoiler until at least after the show has broadcast.
I managed to watch GI, Playback, 6to8 and a few more that I can’t remember their names on top of BIGSTAR. I didn’t get to see Kangnam perform even though he was part of the morning pre-recording. He sounded great though.
I think it was episode 183 that I attended, not sure. Not that it really matters to me because I was just interested to watch my lovely BIGSTAR boys perform. 🙂
It was quite interesting how I was given a card where the Brave staff would stamp each time I attended a BIGSTAR promotional event.
I had read on my Twitter timeline about how BIGSTAR did a post recording fan event of sorts for the week before and I was a little disappointed that there was no post recording fan event for the Arirang pre-recording. Oh well. It was all good. I finally got to see BIGSTAR in action again after almost 1 year and I hope I’ll be able to watch them perform again soon!
PS: If you are interested to be in the audience for “Simply Kpop” to watch your favourite idols perform, head on over to www.arirang.com to apply for tickets. It is free! You will need to register for an account at www.arirang.com but don’t worry, it’s in English so it’s a breeze.

So I finally found the video where of the pre-recording that I attended… and I can see myself in the video. LOL!!!
Which means there will be another one next week because BIGSTAR performed twice in difference costumes during the pre-recording that I attended. ^^

Here’s the other performance that was pre-recorded when I was there. ^^
Fun fan account: before this second performance was recorded, Feeldog was pretending to be the late Steve Jobs doing a WWDC iPhone presentation.
