BTS Japan Official Fanmeet: Osaka, December 15, 2016

Hi everyone!

I have an exciting post for all you BTS fans out there!!! So one of my previous posts about BTS was about me not being able to attend the fan meeting when they went to Kcon Paris earlier this year. It was poorly organised and I missed out the opportunity to see them.

Buuuut the crazy fangirl in me is determined to see them so when I found out about the BTS official fanmeet it was just too good an opportunity to miss out…. I JUST HAD TO GO.

And I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the Osaka fanmeet!!!!!

First things first, my ticket was expensive. It cost £200. I bought it online and Japan has a strict NO online resale of ticket policy and apparently they ID check you on the day of the event, and I freaked the shit out because of that, especially because after google translating the ticket when I finally received the ticket through post, some dude’s name was on it. @_@

I went to Osaka-jo hall roughly 3pm on the day and there were loads of high school girls already there, all kitted out in their BTS gear. Most of them were dressed in black, had glowsticks and had BTS  name badges, hip hop monsters and all other sorts of BTS merchandise. I noticed they especially had some kind of funky badge with either like Jungkook or Jimin on it with their signature which I had never seen before. They even had mini hip hop monster keyrings and I had never seen those for sale ANYWHERE, either.

Further up and I saw the official ARMY goods for sale. Everything was blue themed and naturally I bought pretty much everything they had, but to my disappointment all the photo sets and postcard sets were sold out TT_TT

You can even sign up to Japan ARMY.

I bought a BTS Official fanmeet bag, poster set, slap wristband, phone holder ring thingy, the official Osaka fanmeet towel and t-shirt.

At 6pm, people began lining up and I began praying to god to let me in. When it was finally my turn, all they did was check my bag and rip off a part of my ticket and I was allowed in.

YAAAAAAAAAAAY!

I quickly found my seat and holy shit the venue was not as big as I thought; it was smaller than Kcon, bigger than SM Town so probably like Wembley Arena in the UK when I went to see Big Bang. The stage was an H-shape and ZOMG I was so close!

All seats were filled up and they were playing BTS music videos until 7pm and the boys finally went on stage.

Cue fangirling time!

I had my BTS glowstick and a UK flag so I was waving that the entire time. The boys started off with 1 song before it was Question Time.

I thought this was going to be like a fansign event so I brought my WIngs album but it was like a mini concert.

Nayways, back to the questions. Everything was in Japanese so I didn’t understand most of it. You were also not allowed to record or take photos or else risk getting kicked out.

I remembered one of the questions was ‘What does ARMY stand for?’. V said A was for Apple (PPAP, Pen Pineapple Apple Pen, if you don’t know lol) and then the rest of his answers were pretty hysterical. Rapmonster got it right.

Another question was a picture on screen from a venue and BTS had to guess what venue that was. V guessed correctly and said it was the Osaka fanmeet the day before.

I remember Jin blowing lots of kisses, Jimin being all cool and laidback, J-Hope giving out lots of hearts and really happy and Suga was….Suga LOL!!!

Then they performed 21st Century Girls, which HOLY CRAP took me by surprise because I didn’t think they would perform it even though it was one of their most recent songs along with Blood, Sweat and Tears.

They also performed Fire and GADDAMN everyone in Japan knows the fanchant but I only knew Fire and even then the Japanese high school girl was screaming even louder than I was, going ‘KAWAIIII’ and screaming for Jimin the entire time.

They played more games at the centre stage, going to our side first (whoop) after rolling this dice and they played charades, which Jimin was unfortunately awful at LMAO.

Jimin, V and Jin sang acoustic versions of Boy in Luv, Danger and I Need U. HOLY SHIT Boy in Luv Acoustic version was so fucking beautiful!!!!!

Suga and J-Hope sang a Japanese folk song which I think was popular in Osaka but it was cute nonetheless <333

They also went on these little choo choo trains around the stage and sang and threw autographed balls to the crowd, like SNSD Phantasia and of course I didn’t get any 😦

But during that I remember Jungkook in his choo choo train and I was waving my flag when he passed and he STARED. He STARED at me the entire time. I fangasmed at that point.

At the end they performed Blood, Sweat and Tears and HOT DAMN they sang live and its CD quality. Blood, Sweat and Tears is so good live!!!!!! At the encore, BTS went out again to say goodbye and I was like gaddamn I dun wanna say goodbye you are all so beautiful and sing so well I dont want this night to end TT_TT””

The fanmeet was about 3 hours long @_@ I left at 10pm and it was like a mini concert, with quite a lot of talking and games and some songs O_o I AM SATISFIED!!!!!!!

OVERALL:

  • Ok, so I am a Jimin fan, but OMFG V. V IS SO HOT. HE IS SO FUCKING HOT IN REAL LIFE. I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A BEAUTIFUL MAN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!!!!!!!
  • That being said, V, Jungkook and Jimin are the most popular in Japan
  • BTS actually don’t give out as much fanservice as you think. It’s fine with me, but I noticed there were times when V and Jimin would go to the edge of the stage and stand and stare at the crowd, but that is it. They don’t wave much lol
  • Japanese fans are so civil. I saw the standing area. they all stood in rows, so civil and no-one was pushing. They just stand and watch. It was pretty amazing considering the amount of kpop concerts I’ve been and seen fans in the pit climb and elbow each other just to see their idols better
  • And Jungkook stared at me whoohoo!

I also took some sneaky pictures at the end cos I was like, heh well the fanmeet is almost over so even if they throw me out its ok lolololol.

    Hiya sorry to bother you – me and my friends are going to Japan and South Korea in September/October and we’ve heard it’s hard to get concert tickets for these countries – do you have any advice? We really wanna go to a K-Pop concert if there’s any on ^_^

    • Fish and Chips says:

      No worries! You can try viagogo. They’re legit. You can also try instagram, look up hashtags like #btsconcerttickets or #btsticketsforsale but instagram is a little riskier than viagogo!!! So please be careful as it could be fake.

      • hozzieb says:

        Is viagogo just second hand tickets? I’m lowkey worried they’ll bump the ticket up by like 5x the price – sorry to keep bothering you I just wanna be prepared haha! :’)

      • Fish and Chips says:

        They are probably unwanted tickets. My BTS fanmeet ticket, and my BTS Wings Tour ticket was from viagogo. If the price is higher than the origina it usually means the seat is very good. Ticket prices seem to vary but it won’t be 5x the price. If you see one for sale which is 5x the price I wouldn’t bother

      • hozzieb says:

        I hate it when people sell for more than the price like whhhhhhhhy? :L Thanks for your help, your blog is great by the way I’ve been reading your posts all morning and they’re really good ^_^

      • Fish and Chips says:

        No worries, glad I could be of help. I haven’t updated recently because I’m too busy but hopefully I will update more (because I went to BTS Macau Wings Tour too lololol)

      • hozzieb says:

        Did you!? Ooooomg you’re so lucky I’d have to loved to have seen their Wings Tour 😦 I was reading your posts ‘cos I went to K-Con Paris too, I thought it was great but I didn’t attempt to go to the convention so I guess I would’ve been disappointed if I had :L

      • Fish and Chips says:

        OMG you went to Kcon!!!!! It was really good, right???!! I have to admit that kpop stars don’t go to Europe as much as I would like them to. I didn’t go to the convention either…but it would’ve been a great opportunity because for me, I’m a MASSIVE BTS fan and I could’ve seen them so up close.

  2. hozzieb says:

    It was so good ooooomg I had the best time ever!! And literally, hardly any of them come to Europe but it is getting better like we had Block B this year and Dreamcatcher are coming next year, 24K came like 3 times this year ^_^ K-Con was so good though, it sucks though ‘cos I was only a casual fan of BTS at the time but now I really stan them and it feels like I didn’t even see them :L

    • Fish and Chips says:

      I have to admit and say I haven’t heard of those groups except from Block B ^_^”” BTS are planning a world tour btw. I heard it could be starting May or June next year, but I’m not sure. You should definetely go see them, they are very good performing live and in their concerts/performances they always do something different for fans

  3. hozzieb says:

    I’d travel to see them but going outside of Europe is a little expensive for me like I had to spend all of my tax return on the flights to Japan + SK for next year – I hope they come to Europe, if they go while I’m in Japan I might honestly cry :L Lowkey tempted to go to more than show if I can afford it tbh ‘cos who knows when they might come back?? And fair enough, 24K and Dreamcatcher are really good ^_^ So are Block B, I was so happy they came to England! 🙂

    • Fish and Chips says:

      Yeah, going outside of EU is going to be very expensive – not to mention the ticket itself might be expensive (plus merchandise if you wanna buy). I prefer seeing kpop stars in Japan actually, because the fans are nicer.

      • hozzieb says:

        I like it ‘cos it means you can see a lot of groups – and the London Korean Festival was good but like the atmosphere wasn’t the same… Tbh living in Europe I feel like I can’t be picky lmao :’)

      • Fish and Chips says:

        awww its ok, kpop is getting more and more popular now so they’ll come to more countries compared to 4-5 years ago. i think the atmosphere will depend on the people who go – in Macau the atmosphere of BTS wings was also different than BTS wings in Hong Kong. And I went to a Kcon in New York and also the atmosphere was different there.

      • hozzieb says:

        I really hope BTS come here next like I need to see them again ^_^ And true tbh I blame the venue ‘cos it really wasn’t very good but I got to see EXID and KNK so I was happy 🙂

      • Fish and Chips says:

        I’ve seen SNSD, Super Junior, SHINee (….the news about Jonghyun has upsetted me a great deal), F(x), AOA, BIGBANG. Other artists include – T-ara, SISTAR, EXO (went to their concert), VIXX, Teen Top,… uh i think that is it.

      • hozzieb says:

        Ooooooooomg you’re so lucky, I’d kill to see SNSD!! And AOA omg! Omg and Sistar, you’re so luuuuuuuuuuuucky D: I’ve seen everyone at K-Con Paris (obviously), 24K, Block B, EXID, KNK, Snuper and Beast – and hopefully Dreamcatcher and HALO next year ^_^

      • Fish and Chips says:

        cool!!! you’ve seen a lot of people i haven’t seen yet! I want to see EXID – they have a lot of songs i like. yeah, SNSD have disbanded now…same goes for AOA and SISTAR. its kind of like you have to see them before they either a) disband or b) join the army

      • hozzieb says:

        Pretty sure AOA are still together it’s just that Choa left :/ EXID were good but ‘cos they were at the festival they only did like 4 songs and I was hoping they’d do Lie but they didn’t they did Night Rather Than Day, Hot Pink, Lie and Ah Yeah ^_^ I’d love to see Mamamoo, G-Friend and Red Velvet 🙂

      • Fish and Chips says:

        oh… surprised they didn’t do LIE. I think that’s one of their best songs. I don’t mind seeing Red Velvet…wouldn’t want to see Gfriend (sorry I have strong opinions on them) I don’t like them at all >_> I just think they’re copying SNSD and trying to replicate their success. I’d like to see Blackpink.

      • hozzieb says:

        Fair enough, we can agree to disagree on G-Friend then lmao :’) See I would like to see Black Pink but I wish YG would promote them better like they had one comeback this year?? Seriously? I’d love to see Twice ^_^

      • Fish and Chips says:

        hahah yep, Blackpink should be promoted better but they’ve only had a few songs and they’re really popular. My friend esp likes Lisa lol. Twice are okay. I really like Knock Knock. Not sure about SIgnal…haven’t heard their new song, Likey either… at my age I shouldn’t be listening to Twice lol. But they’re better than most girl groups I’ve seen

      • hozzieb says:

        How old are you if you don’t mind me asking? Feel free to tell me to shove off ^_^ I didn’t like Signal either but Likey and Heart Shaker were good 🙂

      • Fish and Chips says:

        It’s fine no worries. I turned 27 this year. I’m even older than Jin in BTS hahaha XD I got into kpop through wonder girls and rain. Then I moved to snsd and super junior through my sister and we became sm town fans. But now I’m more big hit/BTS because they’re so individual and different and their music is better. I dunno… when I got into BtS i noticed they were so different than others. Even if they do synchronised dancing or singing, there’s always something different in their performance which I noticed, they always sing live, they actually enjoy singing and dancing, and also you see them in their bangtan bomb and it’s always hilarious. Sorry to go on a massive rant lol

    Girl!! I’m so glad I found your blog! They just announced the vol 4 fan meet in Tokyo and i’m going to be studying abroad there at the same time! i can’t even describe to you how much it would mean for me to see them. do you think there’s a chance i’ll be able to get tickets on viagogo when they’re announced, even after though i’m not in the japanese fanclub (i am merely an american lol)????

    • Fish and Chips says:

      Hey there! That’s great! I’m so jealous, you’ll have a great time in Tokyo! If I remember correctly, my ticket from viagogo had someone’s name on it and it was a japanese name. This is because they apparently sell tickets via a lottery or if you are part of the japanese fanclub, I think, it is risky but when I went to the venue, I was so scared they would kick me out even though I had a ticket in case they would ID me but they didn’t and I was allowed in! A girl I met was lucky enough to have a japanese friend get a ticket for her… But if you do get a ticket, it’s plenty of fun, the experience will be amazing, the Japanese fans are super sweet, bts will speak in Japanese, there will be Japan exclusive stuff, and tonnes of merchandise!! Have fun!!!!
