INFINITE EFFECT IN PARIS

If you have been following me for a while, you might know that I love the Korean group INFINITE. I basically saw them five times since I started writing in this blog. 

The group is currently on a world tour and once again they stopped by Paris! The first time they came to France was in 2013, and unfortunately, I couldn't attend the concert because I was in South Korea, taking my exams haha. 
I was already in Paris last week, so it was the opportunity for me to see them for the first time in France! 


The concert took place at a very fancy place : the "Casino de Paris". The venue was very small and there were actually not a lot of people, so I could secure a good spot and enjoy the concert! The last concerts I have been to were in South Korea, and the venues were so big that I forgot what it was like to attend a small concert haha. 


I mainly went to this concert to hear Infinite's latest songs and particularly Sunggyu's solo song "Kontrol".  The performance was impressive and Sunggyu was absolutely stunning! The other members also did a good job, most of them definitely improved their skills. I was a bit sad for Hoya though, he couldn't join the dance performances because of his legs. But he showed us amazing vocal and rapping skills. I was surprised at how good his rapping skills got, especially during the performance of "바빠서 Sorry"


Overall, the concert was very good. French fanbases and inspirits put a lot of efforts into making this concert a memorable one. I am not planning to write a concert fan account here, I suggest you to check my fancams of the concert at the end of the article or here :) 

I will also share with you some photos I took during the concert. I am sorry they are not HQ, my camera is good for videos but not that much for photos, especially for concerts. But, I had so much fun taking photos and videos, I hope you will like them ♡ It was basically the first time I took photos during a concert without being pushed by the crowd, and being scared of getting caught, so I was really excited haha. Beware, there are lot of photos ;) 


I hope you like these photos :) You can also watch all my fancams below:



Did you attend this concert as well? What were your impressions?
Please share your experience :)

CHUSEOK IN PARIS

Happy Chuseok everyone! Chuseok (추석) is a harvest festival in South Korea. As it is one of the most important celebrations, it is also a four-day holiday in South Korea. During Chuseok, Korean people usually visit their family and enjoy a good time together.

This year, Chuseok was on September 27th. Since there is a Korean community and many Korean associations in Paris, they organized an event last saturday!


The event took place at the "Jardin d'acclimatation", which is a nice park with a small Korean garden. It really feels like you are in South Korea! 

During the event, people could enjoy Korean food such as tteokbokki (떡볶이), pajeon (파전), boongeoppang (붕어빵), I was so happy to have those again, street food is the best ;)







They also prepared many activities like the traditional Korean games you play during chuseok, maedeup (매듭) - Korean knots - confection (kinda tricky!), a singing contest, a hanbok contest... There was also a Korean calligrapher, she wrote my name in Korean! It's so pretty, I would love to learn how to do this! You can see the process in the video at the end of this article.

My name written by the Korean calligrapher and the maedeup (Korean knot) I made :)



























This days was pretty fun, I hope they will hold more events like this one! I recorded some food making and the Korean calligraphy process, you can check it in the video below :)



What did you do for Chuseok? Does your country also hold this event? :)

추석 잘 보내세요!
