B1A4’s surprise guerrilla concert started early in the day at 2 p.m, when the five members started promoting the event in Myeong-dong and around Gangnam Station, handing out flyers to advertise their upcoming concert at 8 p.m.

They had two hours to advertise to fill up the 2,000 seats for an outdoor stage on a hot summer night.

“Today is a weekday and many people have to go to work tomorrow, so I understand if many people could not make it to the concert,” said member Baro, before checking how many people came.

When the members finally took off their masks, the swarming fans shouted their hearts out. More than 2,000 people gathered at M Stage at Gangnam Station.

“I worried a lot because we are making a comeback after a long break, but thank you,” Shinwoo said, tearing up. Fans shouted “Don’t cry” in unison.

The red-suited members showcased a number of songs during the concert, including the new single “Sweet Girl” for the first time ever.

Apink

Sweet girl group Apink launched their first live show on Thursday. During “Apink’s Counseling Center” at 10 p.m., Cho-rong and Ha-young became the emcees of the day and gave advice to fans.

One 20-year-old who lives in Indiana in the U.S. shared his concern of living far away from his father, the breadwinner of the family. “I know my father works really hard for the family, but it’s really difficult to express my gratitude, and I just end up giving excuses of being busy or tired.”

Cho-rong said “I am like that too, and our members all live far away from home. It’s important to offer kind words to him.” Ha-young advised him to write a handwritten letter.

GOT7

At 10:30 p.m., seven members of GOT7 became genies during the live show “GOT7’s Mission Clear” and made three fan’s wishes come true.

The first wish was to make a morning call in three different styles. Mark exuded his sweet charm and said “Baby, did you sleep well?” while JB acted as the cynical boyfriend and shouted “Hey wake up, wake up!” and Jackson charmed the fans with his cuteness, saying “wake up” in a slow, whiny voice.

The second wish was for the camera to zoom up on their face, which followed by fans excited comments of “come closer.”

The last wish was for them to act out a scene from a TV drama. Member Junior acted a scene from the famous “The Heirs.”

“BamMin TV”

Following the GOT7 live show, Thai member BamBam taught Park Ji-min of 15& Thai language during their show “BamMin TV.”

Park, who lived in Thailand for eight years when she was young, already knew how to say hello and thank you.

So Bambam taught her a pickup line. “Guys like cute girls, so you have to throw them a cute pickup line,” he said.

Further on Thursday

BTS turned on their camera for few minutes to capture the moment of their arrival to Thailand for their upcoming concert on Saturday. The members said “sawadee kap,” “hello” in Thai, and were surprised to see so many fans gathered at the airport.
