Besides, its my first ever kpop concert so I promised myself I’d go to that concert no matter what it takes.

I really don’t want to make this really long and make it too-detailed. Almost two weeks have passed since the concert happened, so I don’t think I could remember everything, so do forgive me. I’ll just share some of the highlights during my U-Kiss concert escapade.
