On  the Friday of April 20, 2018 I had the privilege of going to an event at a Union Nightclub but it wasn’t your ordinary dancers, my friends and I had different plans which was to attend the Concert that featured two talented rappers San E and Mad Clown. Mad Clown and San E are two of a hand full of individuals who are big stars in Korean Pop Music they even feature in multiple tv shows in Korea. With countless hit songs in Korea and their latest new song, Sour Grape, they decided to join forces in order to perform in America.

During this event I was actually with a fellow colleague Luy Kim in order to watch this spectacular performance. During the event notified to us when we got there by our other friends was that Luy and I had to be 18, gladly while waiting in line the security guard checking I.D’s didn’t see us so we had a free pass in without having to be 18. The moment we got in the first thing Luy and I noticed was the amount of female fans outweighed the number of male fans with a close ratio to 3:1. Obviously before the main act came out there were multiple performers on stage in order to hype the crowd up for the main event which in my opinion they did a poor job on doing but they tried their best which counts.

Before San E and Mad Clown actually came up the audience seemed to have already been drained from yelling and screaming for the other performers but I was wrong the moment they came on stage for a good minute all you hear was even louder screaming and yelling. Unlike most rappers who continue to talk about other nonsense before their performance they had a different schedule. When they came on stage and the audience stayed quiet they immediately started on their first then the next until there main song Sour Grape. Even though I didn’t understand some of the song lyrics because of my past education of Korean class I slowly but surely understood the meaning behind each individual songs that they sang. Which most translated to about how situations that the audience can easily relate to : going through a relationship, breaking up, being sad and getting over it, complaining about life, etc.

During my stay there compared to other famous Korean rap concerts I believe the location and times could have been a better fix towards a schedule and place based on where most people would enjoy staying at. Don’t get me wrong it was a nice place with space and a/c but thinking about how much more they could have put into that was more or less a disappointment. But the overall performance was great. They had the entire audience with them until the end and also tossed shirts, card, and even signed cd’s.
