I was lucky and had a possibility to join BTS Permission to Dance On Stage offline concert. The show was held on 10th of March and 12th,13th of March. First show started at 7pm and the next two at 6pm. The entire concert was held in Jamsil Olympic Stadium. The access to the stadium is simple, you can take line 2 or 6 and get off at Jamsil Sport Complex.

I had a chance to be there at the very first show. The concert started at 7:00, there was no delay.

I was sitting just next to the stadium, and I was able to hear everything. There were a lot of people who also did not have a change to go inside the stadium and were having fun outside, like I did. They were singing so loud, that everyone outside the stadium was able to hear them singing.

Concert was 2,5h long, for my luck it was not raining like it was on Sunday’s and Saturday’s concert, so me and rest of the people were able to last to the end of the concert. It was not cold either so even though it was dark already, it was not a problem to last till the end. But people from weekend’s concert cannot the same thing.

Seoul was the second city to promote Permission to Dance On Stage Tour. The first one was Los Angeles, where 4 concerts where held on November and December, now the third city will be Las Vegas. Concerts are on April and also 3 dates for the shows were scheduled.


There are not further plans, what after Las Vegas, every time another city with concert is announcement just right after the last planned and announcement show.

Street Woman Fighter: Opening the Door for Dancers

Thao My editor(Vietnam) 

Street Woman Fighter premiered on MNET this Summer, and its impact on the often-underappreciated South Korean dancing industry has been exponential. Through this program, eight female dance teams from across South Korea competed for the title of ‘Best Dance Team’. Even if there was only one eventual winning team, every dancer has benefited from the explosive success of Street Woman Fighter.Backup dancers have not always necessarily been unknown, but they have never been widely recognizable to the public. When EXO’s Kai had his solo debut last year, all eyes were instead on a girl behind him. Sporting sleek black hair and a charismatically cold gaze, an unknown backup dancer radiated beauty and viewers picked up on it. Garnering millions of views on edited “fancams”, the public came to the same conclusion. “The girl in the glasses is the best!”. But despite this wide public adoration, few would recognize her name, Noze.
