The first ‘batch’ to greet us Media, is people from the promoter and sponsors.

Also seated is the promoter Blackrock Entertainment and sponsors from plasa.com, Esia and Indonesian singer Alika.

Blackrock, ” This event is held because we  see how Korean Wave {Kpop} syndrome is now favored by Indonesian. By holding this event, we also supporting the popularity of Asian Music and hope Indonesian music can go International as well.”

Esia,” This is a magnificent event, and suits Esia consumers.”

Plasa.com,” This event is indeed a very huge event as Plasa.com never experienced in selling ticket for Korean artist concert, yet, we sell around 700 transactions and 800 transactions on the 1st and 2nd day of ticket selling and this is a selling record for us. These huge responds also made our server down for a while.

Alika – An Indonesian singer who is also a Kpop lover. She recently flew to Seoul and did a music video shooting at Everland. She also hope to see a total performance from the Korean singers at the festival.

The second ‘batch’ to greet us JOO and 2AM (minus JinWoon)

The first one to enter the room is JOO and followed by 2AM. After all artists seated and the interpreters ready, they start the Q&A session. Here’s some of those moments~

JOO is wearing a pretty  sackdress with  short hair. 2AM wore suits in black and looking gorgeous.

JOO tried her best to speak simple English and I really appreciate her effort. She is also said how she loves Indonesian fans and of course Indonesian food. It is also revealed (at least 1st time for me) that she used to live in Indonesia due to her dad job. So, she is quite familiar with Indonesia. She always smiles and pose for those who asked her to, she is friendly indeed and very pretty.

2AM looks a bit tired yet they always try to smile for the press. Jo Kwon is the one who answered the most. Yet, SeulOng and ChangMin also sometimes answered the question. ChangMin is unexpectedly very handsome in person. Not that he isn’t handsome, but I always thought the other members are more handsome than him, but, today when I saw him, he proves I am wrong. JoKwon and SeulOng are very handsome. SeulOng is very calm whilst JoKwon did funny face look for us and sometimes chat with SeulOng. ChangMin is a bit quite. They also talked about their previous visit, and feel bad about not being able to perform and greet their fans at that time and now they want to give a full performance for their fans. They also say that they support JinWoon solo album project.
