[FANACCOUNT] 140824 Someday in August

Today’s concert ㅠㅠ Why did we forget to buy ponchos lol. It started drizzling even before the concert so I wore oppa’s windbreaker.

IU came out prepared for the rain with a nice big black hat (David’s hat? keke). She said that she heard it started raining, but was glad that it stopped. (Everyone was like no it hasn’t stopped!) And she went.. Oh hmm because I’m sheltered, I don’t feel the rain. After Meaning of You, she came out to the protruding stage to join us in the rain keke.. After the song, she said this much rain is fine though! (LOL she was actually hoping it would rain.. Would match the Raindrop song I guess ^^)

I’m quite sure the rain started becoming heavier when she started singing Raindrop lol. The autographed poster and album went to a US fan from Pennsylvania. She really looks caucasian so I guess IU had to believe her. (Why don’t I look like a foreigner?? Why???)

When she said the next song would be her last song, everyone went eiiiii~~~ and she was like what’s with the eiii? Are you saying I’m lying? Cos she’s well-known for singing a lot of songs for encore keke.

She really likes the part that the fans go “IU chamchotda! (IU is really great!)” in You and I so she actually sang that section again after the song ended, just to hear us do the IU chamchotda! again lolll.

She sang the same songs except for the last encore because she said she was deciding between The Story Only I Didn’t Know and Child Searching for a Star. Both are about people going through difficult times haha.. Anyway, she sang the latter in the end.

She also commented that her mum came for the concert yesterday and really liked Vibe’s performance loll. They really know how to have fun I guess. Audience interaction daebak.

Then she told the audience to come for her next solo concert. IU fans immediately asked her when??? And she said it would be difficult to have one within this year. New album within this year most probably cannot either. But she’s preparing for her new album so perhaps next year. We know how her release dates are always postponed by a few months anyway so should be used to it by now >.

[FANACCOUNT] 140823 Someday in August concert - IU

Haha vibe is still singing and I don’t really know their songs so I’ll just listen while I type this fanaccount. Resisting the urge to just leave.. Bought the concert ticket for both IU and Vibe after all.

Waiting for IU to arrive at the concert venue was much fail because we waited about 5 hours and when she finally came, they placed a barrier so we could only watch her from afar ㅠㅠ

Then we listened to her rehearsal so we kinda already knew all the songs she was going to sing lol. She started the show with Meaning of You! My favourite song~ This time she really came out to the protruding stage a lot! (Because she said there were rumours that she didn’t do so lol.) She got all of us to join in and sing the male part of Friday as usual which was wonderful haha! Funny how she introduced My Old Story as the less well-known title song (compared to the popularity that Meaning of You received).

There was an event in the middle and she asked who’s the oldest here.. after that she changed her mind and asked who came from the furthest place. Someone said Jeju-do! So I told IU I was from Singapore!! Haha Annie also told IU she’s from Singapore! But someone who apparently was from New York beat us (although I bet that guy just stayed in New York for awhile and didn’t fly here just to watch IU perform lol). He won a signed poster and CD. Oh well the main point is IU looked at me~~!! Kekeke

She mentioned the ice bucket challenge she did yesterday and said that she didn’t catch a cold or anything but she had body aches after that lolll. Told us to take care and not to catch a cold as usual. Tears on guitar was awesome omg. Totally wasn’t expecting such a repertoire for a concert she was just sharing with someone else. You Know (Hey!) was a really fun song as usual. However, although we were really near to the stage at the end of the protruding stage, we saw more of IU’s side profile than front. The seats right in front or the protruding stage would have been amazing. IU doing the little buttshake dance in Friday right in front of you omgg.

She was really sweating after The Red Shoes, You Know, Good Day and the You and I encore one after another and said that she’s never sweated so much from performing before haha.. But she still ended with another encore song, The Story Only I Didn’t Know ㅠㅠㅠ Ah she did the 3-level high note concert style, after getting the audience to “sing it for her”, she did it properly by herself :) Of course, she even gave us a very short phototime and did cute expressions for everyone. Haha many IU fans left the moment IU’s part was over but let’s be well-behaved audience and support Vibe too! Apprently they’ve been popular for awhile. Dunno.. not my style of music. Too much jumping around and shouting. Watching again tomorrow! Will try to recall interesting bits to share with everyone after that!

Meaning of you
My Old Story
When love passes
A midsummer night’s dream
Hidden Road
The red shoes
You Know
Good Day
You and I (encore)
The story only I didnt know (encore)

Fan: Did you leave without trying the In-N-Out burger?..

Since it’s the school holidays, are you guys staying up late?
Wahh it’s the holidays! Let’s have fun playing today!!
It might rain in the evening today
So let’s have even more fun playing!!!!
You’ve got to have fun in August. There’s no way our Uaena family members with faces and personalities and a name that is round (Note: From Uaena song) won’t enjoy August!!
In August, eat and gain weight and sleep and play, everyone.
September will be the month of regret, but play to your heart’s content in August~~~~~
