    2009 Dream Concert, Has SNSD learned anything?

    Post by LUPIN on Mon 19 Oct 2009, 9:22 pm

    After much "anticipation" and speculation as to what happened to our 9 "favorite" girls, here is a rundown of the events in Dream Concert 2009.

    Part 1: Red Carpet / Photoshoot

    From being all white and "pure" last year,



    They are all dressed up in black for this year. Hmmm kinda reminiscent of our Black Ocean, yes? Razz



    Oh what's this? It seems that little miss Tiffany has yet again "succeeded" in attracting attention to herself. Looks like this year she opted to not follow the group color scheme. Though it is apparent that no matter what she has to wear the shortest dress among them.

    The result? She either pulled it up or pulled it down. Oh, how their stylist must love Tiffany! [/sarcasm] or well, as a SONE said:

    SONE wrote:... Maybe she wanted to stand out again? XD









    Here's a fancam of their red carpet photo-shoot. Notice how some of them, especially Tiffany, is a little "extra nice" towards the reporters and photographers.



    Part 2: The Concert

    Opening

    As a formal opening of the concert, individual groups/performers were introduced. SNSD was the first one to be called. Observe this warm welcome from the audience:



    ^ If you noticed, you'll see which group had solid fan attendance and support.

    Performance

    They performed their "big hits" Gee and Tell Me Your Wish. Their Gee performance was not aired. In between performances, they had a short introduction segment wherein their leader Taeyeon shed some tears. Tears of relief perhaps?



    ^ Apparently, Taeyeon is thankful to fans for without them, artists won't have (as continued by YoonA) "the strength to perform on". Thinking about it, the "cheers" they got this year may be a tad overwhelming considering last year's silence, which caused Taeyeon to tear up.

    Here's the video for their performance of Tell Me Your Wish. Nothing special in terms of vocals since it was supposedly sang "live". They also added that out of place dance segment. As a "bonus" to their performance, Tiffany mentioned "Sowon" instead of DJ. Jessica continued by saying "My Sowon" in Gee. Talk about fanservice huh?



    ^ Notice how the loudness of the cheers die down. You can really tell which side those cheers came from.

    Ending

    To end the concert, SM groups (Super Junior, SHINee, f(x) ) and SNSD sang 2007 SMTOWN Summer Hit "Let's Go On A Vacation". While Super Junior & SHINee did well in covering for the artists who weren't present, SNSD's Taeyeon on the other hand showed the weakness of her vocals. Check it out:



    ^ Kyuhyun had to literally help her get through that high note. We all know who's the better vocalist. (FYI, the high note was originally sang by BoA. Dream on Taeyeon, dream on!) Also this song is never the same without the powerhouse vocals of BoA, DBSK & CSJH.

    Part 3: The big question and answers

    So did a Black Ocean happen?
    To put it simply NO. But do not be dismayed or lose hope our fellow STAND-ers! There are reasons as to why it didn't happen:

    Fan Attendance
    Let's check the fan clubs that were present. Around 40,000 fans came to this year's Dream Concert. Here's a chart of the seating arrangement of the different fan clubs.


    -------------------------------------------
    BLACK - other artists (mainly JYP area)
    PEACH - Kamilia
    BLUE - ELF
    LIGHT AQUA - SHINee World
    YELLOW - VIP + Blackjack

    and of course
    PINK - Sone


    (TRIVIA: Even Cassiopeia members made their presence known. Check THIS ARTICLE out.)

    If we look back, we know that three big fan clubs (Cassiopeia, ELF, Triple-S) were responsible for the awesome black ocean in last year's Dream Concert. This year however, ELF was the only one in full force. Let's also add the fact that each fan club is dealing with their own problems that they don't have time to trouble themselves with SNSD and their fans.

    But even though that's the case, Cass still gave us hints on where they STAND when it comes to SNSD. Check this video out:



    ^ No cheers for SNSD? LOL. Also if anyone asks why they weren't cheering for f(x), well it's because seeing that they just debuted these past months, not everyone may know things about them yet whereas SNSD...Well you get the picture.

    Also, here is a fancam of what a REAL ocean of fans looked like in this year's Dream Concert.



    Dream Concert Artist Line-up / Problems
    Now on its 15th year, Dream concert has been organized annually with the aim of promoting patriotism and put a stop on the illegal use of music and other media. As such, this music festival has always been a big event since it gathers a lot popular artists into one place where they sing their hit songs.

    This year's Dream concert however was disorganized. The line-up of the artists itself looked rushed at most. Earlier this year it was announced that DBSK would attend but it was soon retracted due to their on-going lawsuit against SME. Additionally, other artists & groups like: Brown-Eyed Girls, Son Dambi, Davichi, After School, and Baek Ji Young were left out of the line-up. Hottests had issues with the 6-member appearance of 2PM plus the sudden addition of 2AM to the line-up. There's also the fact that this year it was the news photographers who did the boycotting; the photo-ops were delayed by an hour.

    Part 4: What happens now?

    Well don't let your spirit as a civil anti die out just because we didn't get our Black Ocean. We all know the truth and know where we STAND. Besides, keep in mind that Dream Concert was never meant to be a battleground of the different fan clubs. It's been going on for 15 years but only in 2008 did it ever become like that. I guess we have to thank SNSD and their Sones for that.

    And to those Sones who are bragging about their so-called "victory", all we can say is this:

    The Awesomeness that is STAND wrote:A couple of repetitive hit songs won't make someone forget the horrible things these girls and their fans have done to others. Just because SOME may sing along to their songs that doesn't mean all is forgiven.

    So has SNSD (and their fans) learned anything from last year's silence? Well you be the judge.

    And here's Siwon to wrap up this Dream Concert post.



    SM Town Love indeed. Razz

    The thing is that they are too spoiled to learn anything +just look at Tardy, she acts exactly the same as last year+. They're protected by The Old Man and their Insanes, so I guess they don't think about changing at all.

    And Siwon - you did the greatest thing ever I love you

    Tiffany sure is so SUBTLE at giving fanservice.
    Silly tramp.

    One of the few things that I can only give SNSD credit for actually being GOOD at, is knowing where the cameras are, and positioning themselves in the perfect area to flaunt their plastic assets for all its worth.

    I was completely disinterested in Dream Concert 09 this year (though I was hoping for a black ocean, because it would have been awesometastic xD).
    There's been so much crap going on in the KPop industry this year. Everything's disorganized and in a mess, and on top of all that, SNSD sewage is spewing everywhere.

    It's not like anyone cared enough about them to even bother with a Black Ocean. The fans have better things to do, especially Hottests and Cassiopeia.

    I may sound like I'm disregarding the other great artists that participated in this year's DC, but other than that, there were a lot of splendid acts that were missed at the concert.
    Shitty year for KPop in general, with all the wank going on.

    Always shittier with a croaking toad on top, when SNSD are around and swarming.

    this "dream" concert still felt like "nightmare" although incidents like last year did not happen
    with all the unfortunate things that happened in 200*OMG*9
    about SNSD, there don't seem to be any major change (except that they seem sluttier to me)

    the thing is that Cassiopeia doesn't care about SNSD anymore. they're more concerned with the boys' court issues. thats why sooo little of them showed. hottests are also busy mourning the loss of jaebeom, and elfs basically HAVE to cheer for SNSD ever since Sungmin's message last year.

    btw. where is triple s?
    did they get scared away by the raping, hurting soshi fanboys?
    or did everyone think this concert wasn't worth it (like many cassies.)

    Well since SS501 didn't attend this year, I think there's no point for them getting together and making their presence known. Or maybe I think we can assume that they went to DC as part of another fanclub.
