Fan account below the cut:
About the performance, I felt it lacked a little something. I didn’t know exactly what – but I felt that. Maybe they were in a hurry. If only the boys hadn’t been in a hurry and tired due to flying back and forth, I think they would have performed better. Out of 4 foreign artists, Big Bang could have been the third performer but for some reasons (mostly because organizers wanted to settle the crowd), Big Bang was the first one to perform. I was shocked at that time. When MCs said “I say Big, you say…” The crowd started to go crazy. They shouted ” Bang” so loud.
One thing I impressed by the concert is the number of fanboys. I am sure no boy bands has more fanboys than Big Bang. They are as crazy as fangirls (lol.)
And YB was the first one to appear on the stage. I couldn’t believe it. I thought they would be perform later. I was not ready to watch them live (LOL.) YB and Big Bang was really in front of me! YB was really full of energy. He danced all the time, everywhere he could. I laughed so hard when seeing him spin a lot. Swan queen hahaha. Some of my friends said that he and GD owned the stage well.
About his voice, until now I haven’t seen any fancam yet. I want to keep his real voice for myself as long as possible. I never forget that precious moment. The audiences was so crazy, when they saw Big Bang on the stage, they didn’t stop singing and shouting. I stood at VIP section but there were a lot of pushing, everyone wanted to see them close. I was small and weak so I couldn’t see them and especially YB much. Also I couldn’t hear them sing clearly.
I remembered it was Fantastic Baby and YB sang the second bridge when I could really, really hear him sing live, no playback at all. And I was speechless. I knew his voice is so beautiful but I didn’t thought it was so deep, so thick like that. His voice is absolutely much more better live. Other members sang well also but I think his voice impressed me most. My only wish at that time was audiences were not too noisy and crazy so that I could hear his voice longer and clearer. Since then, I just stood, kept silent and tried to watch Big Bang perform till the end. I thought I understand why experts always appreciate and praise his talent and his vocal. I watched the music festival with some friends including a Daeholic, a TOP stan. Both of them agreed with me about YB voice (kekeke). They were amazed when hearing him sing live.
This time when coming to Vietnam, YB must have had a lot of new fans haha. He was always friendly to fans even though he was tired or not. And he was so random, for example dancing in the car haha. As we said before, the world finally knows what YB stans already knew – his sense of humor and friendliness to fans since some have the impression he is too shy or serious.
30 minutes wasn’t enough for me and many Vietnamese VIPs. I was not able to welcome him nor see him off at the airport but seeing him live and hear him sing was an unforgettable memory for me.
There was an online article mentioning YB about when a fan approached him backstage. He was willing to take a photo with her but his manager and security prevented it. See the photos and original article here.
“This time when coming to Vietnam, Big Bang had a hectic schedule and they seemed to stay in Vietnam for approximately 24 hours. Therefore, approaching Big Bang were very difficult. But 5 members of Big Bang were always friendly to Vietnamese fans. Seung Ri updated his me2day praising “Pho” and spoke Vietnamese on the stage which melt many fans. Meanwhile, Tae Yang always waved and smiled to fans whenever seeing them following Big Bang. Even we witnessed he happily posed with a fan girl.
After performing, Big Bang were accompanied by security backstage but a fan who loved Tae Yang so much bravely ran to him to ask for a photo. Immediately he took off his glasses and talked to her. As soon as Tae Yang knew this fan wanted to take a photo with him, he quickly did a cute pose. Unfortunately, security and Tae Yang’s manager were not happy about it so they prevented her. Anyway, the girl was the only lucky Vietnamese fan who could approach and posed with idol at very close distance.”
