CNBLUE Live In Manila - The Blue Moon World Tour [★]Sunday, June 16, 2013
[UPDATE: I'm totally revising this post from last night. The original post was more of random spazzing (because I was still fresh from the concert and still high with adrenaline xD). Here's a more formal and more detailed fan account of the very fun concert last night!]
Read here their presscon at SM Megamall a day before the concert.
The Awesome Stage
Upon entering the venue, the first thing noticeable was the superb stage. It's a wide stage with lots of lightings set up at the top of it (and we clearly saw shortly after what those were for -- lots of lights, confetti, and even fireworks!!). There was a big screen behind them and two LED screens on both sides. There's even a ramp way on both ends also of the stage.
At the start of the concert, they played trailers of each of the members. The video was blue-themed and literally they flashed a full moon on the screen. xD A few minutes later, a hole opened up on the stage, and there emerged the band members! The crowd went wild!

The Cool Band Members
The members were wearing casual clothes - tshirt, jeans, and chucks. I'm so glad they looked like a normal rock band - no hint of the kpop culture like those flashy matching costumes with heavy makeup and accessories. They all looked really masculine! Their hair (especially Yonghwa's and Jonghyun's) looked like it was freshly-blow dried which made them look fresh and breezy. There's no fancy hairstyles with gel or anything. They looked so cool when they head-banged and their hair waves back and forth too! (´∀｀)♡
Minhyuk. My favorite member! He looked so handsome playing the drums. I could really see in his face that he was enjoying being on stage. I was looking at him the entire time of the concert (except during times when Yonghwa was dancing and moving a lot, which was eye-catching really)! He played the drums very well, with no hint of exhaustion. He just wipes his sweat briefly every end of a song during the latter half of the concert. I love it when he raises the drumstick and twirls it in his hand. (●♡∀♡) He was smiling so nicely to the crowd. I love how he tried to speak in Filipino and English, especially the one where he read out some lines from a piece of paper as a birthday greeting for Yonghwa. (´ ▽｀).。ｏ♡
Jongshin. He was the member that I observed the least among the four of them because he was at the far left side of the stage and I was at the far right (this reminds me of their funny left-right game, which I would talk about later on this post (*´艸`*) ). He sure looked really tall. He looked so cute wearing a cap.
Jonghyun. He's such a gentle cool guy, singing and playing with his guitar on stage. He also looked so handsome, especially on that black muscle shirt he wore during the encore. He's all smiles throughout the concert too.

Sure everyone noticed the weird mic stand Yong used yesterday at the concert. This mic stand has a story, I'll tell it to you because it's really interesting: The mic that Yonghwa was using on the stage was a gift from the Filipino Yongseo fans. But it's not any mic stand!! It's from REBEL MICS!!! Rebel Mics makes all the custom mic stands of popular performers such as Wiz Kalifa, Carly Rae, 1D, etc. The stand has a type of light bulb that makes it glow like a light saber!! The base of the mic was designed by a Yongseo fan too (credits: YSAF)
I am so amazed with the dedication of these fans. (ToT)
It was one great and memorable concert. I must say, the band sounded way way better live! I really enjoyed their perfomance. Cheers to my first ever kpop concert! :D
