2AM and Lee Seung Gi Taken Aback by IU’s Concert
2AM and Lee Seung Gi appeared onstage at IU’s concert to show their surprise at the same thing: the substantial number of men in the audience.
The first concert of IU’s national tour Real Fantasy 2012 took place on June 3 in Seoul and brought 2AM and Lee Seung Gi onstage to sing as guests.
2AM’s Lim Seulong made a surprise appearance onstage and sang Nagging with IU, a performance that was followed by his performance of I Wonder If You Hurt Like Me and Even If I Die, I Can’t Send You with fellow 2AM members Lee Chang Min and Jung Jin Woon.
The three members of 2AM said on their visit, “We came to sing for IU because we wanted to repay her for coming to our concert last time.”
When the audience clapped after the comment, the members then voiced their surprise at hearing applause different from the type they were used to, saying, “This is heavy applause the likes of which we’ve never heard before.”
They then tried to tread carefully and pick what they said about IU so that they wouldn’t get off on the wrong foot with her male fans.
When the audience booed after they said, “IU can do a lot of things, but her handwriting is really bad,” they immediately covered up by saying, “We’re sorry. She’s good at everything,” and when Chang Min picked up a bottle of water that IU had drunk out of for himself, the other members pulled him back, saying, “You can’t do that even if your throat is sore.”
Another of the show’s guests, Lee Seung Gi, showed the same reaction. He said, “It’s different from my concerts; there are so many men that I can hear thick low notes [in the audience]…. Hello.” He then finished by saying, “From here on, IU and I…. Well, I hope you give me just a bit of the love you give IU.”
As such, 2AM and Lee Seung Gi were both surprised at the male ratio of IU’s audience, and at the same time showed they were very wary of the fact.
The rest of IU’s concert was said to be of excellent quality, starting with the fairytale-like fantasy opening of Cruel Fairy Tale and continuing on with such hits as You and I, Peach, Nagging, Marshmallow, Hey and Good Day.
2AM, Lee Seung Gi, Heo Kyung Hwan and more stars appeared as guests, and soccer player Park Ji Sung was spotted sitting on the audience thanks to his ties with IU through their appearance in the recent episode of SBS’ Running Man.
