I don’t think it is any secret that my June 2018 trip to Japan was mainly to catch 14U at their Welcome To The “Summer World” concert that ran throughout June till 22 July 2018. Catching U-Kiss Kiseop & Hoon was a bonus actually.
I bought tickets to 8 of their shows without hesitation; both the matinee and evening shows on 19, 20, 22 and 23 June 2018. I found out that 4 out of the 8 tickets are seats in the front row! Boo-yah! The cherry on top of it all was that I was on the side of the stage were Hyunwoong and Sejin would be too!
Sitting in the front row at such close proximity to the 14U boys at the concert is a health hazard. I was so not prepared for the sexy moves from 14U and I had a mini heart attack when Hyunwoong decided to lift up his shirt…
There was a segment during the concert where the 14U boys had to role-play another member. LOL. Loudi did an awesome job in role-playing Hyunwoong. It was absolutely hilarious!
I must that that I was totally shocked by Sejin this time around. Sejin has always been this cute and fluffy boy to me and at this concert, he decided to show off his sexy and confident self that I’ve never seen before. Don’t grow up so fast you fluffy baby boy!
Even though I’ve been to 8 of their shows for this run of concerts, it was nice that there was always something different with each day to keep things fresh and entertaining. On the 19th, there was a cat theme and the boys were wearing paw gloves and cat ears head bands. For some reason unknown to me, Hyunwoong decided to be a walking filter and he is sooooo adorable!!! 집으로 데리고 싶어.
Then on the 20th, there was a mini quiz for the fans and the fan with the correct answers get to take photos with the 14U boys. The funniest part was how the 14U boys themselves took part in the quiz too. LOL. The intensity of competition among the 14U boys during the quiz is priceless. Unfortunately, I cannot speak Japanese so I couldn’t participate in the quiz. Boo.
My favourite event would be the Yukata event on the 23rd. The boys performed while wearing a yukata and all the fans dressed up in yukata that day too! Loudi was really cute that day. He came out dressed like a girl in yukata, complete with a wig with a huge flower attached to it.
14U is having another of concerts in Japan this September called “Dancing in September with 14U”. There would be 2 shows on these performance dates: 17, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 29 and 30 September 2018. The show venue is still at K-Stage O!
I would recommend for an international OnlyU to go to Japan catch a 14U concert at least once; it is so worth it. If you can’t purchase a ticket in advance, just go to the venue on a performance day and just try your luck. There might be some other fans who cancel/give up their tickets at the last minute so an extra ticket might just surface for you. Good luck!
