The magical night at JITEC Mangga Dua Square
Warning: It’s long, no pictures, no videos.
I don’t know where or how to start describing how it feels being chanted by Xia’s spell. Jakarta concert was such a magical night…but Xia’s spell on me has started since the MV was released. Let me start from that moment when magic started before talking about Jakarta concert.
Tarantallegra MV teaser was a shock for me. Having been loving Junsu since 2006, I have witnessed his transformation from an idol to a musical actor and true artist. But Tarantallegra was beyond my imagination that Junsu would dare to do. Shocked, scared, but full of hope and expectation were what I have felt that time. Knowing Junsu’s needs for perfection, his hardworking and work ethics, I had a feeling that it would become something big. And yes, it was, and still is, isn’t it? Tarantallegra marks and forms a new facet of K-pop. For myself, it shows different side of my bias whom I’ve loved for 6 years. It enriches my dictionary of who Kim Junsu is.

The stage for South Korean singer Xia Junsu at JITEC Mangga Dua on Saturday night was far from grand, but that did not stop the fans from being amazed by his live performance.
After more than a one-and-a-half hour delay, the concert finally started at 8:40 p.m. with Xia appearing in a blue outfit, the same color as his hair, which he said was own special preparation after learning that Indonesia was an archipelagic country.
He started the concert with ‘Breath’, one of the songs from his first solo album, Tarantallegra, launched in May, and followed up with ‘No Gain’.
THIS’S THE BEST CONCERT EVER, NEXT TO JYJ SHOWCASE I WATCHED 2 YEARS LATER IN SINGAPORE!
TOTALLY NO LIPSYNC! SEXY DANCE! AMAZING N BEAUTIFUL VOICE OF XIA! SUCH A WARM, CUTE, AND KIND SMILE FROM HIM ALL ALONG THE CONCERT! ALSO THE SEXY NAUGHTY DUCKBUTT AND SMEXY GRIN! LOL sorry for the capslock, I just got home and that’s why I’m so biased right now
1. The venue and the waiting
I overally listened to his album while going there, my parents were the one taking me there (they watched 2 cinema movies while waiting for me, thx to the delay) I grapped dinner w/ my friend, s3adolphin and her friends and then waited at the venue. We seated on numbered seat so no need to queue like festival did (the standing one). It’s delayed…for 1,5 hours…yeah…then I got into the queue from the back as it started moving. We went up and there’s some checking, I separated from my friends becoz we’re in different class…I’m in platinum (the most expensive one, I wasted my pocket money but it was damn worth it) and they’re in diamond (one class lower than me). We waited. My hands were so busy during the concert, imagine : 1) iphone for recording vid, 2) bb for tweeting n taking photo, 3) lightstick, 4) binocular to ‘see’ clearer some part, u know what I mean, right? XD wkwk…I SIT ON THE FIRST ROW!!! SERIOUSLY, I GOT THIS ONE BAR AND FESTIVAL CLASS PREVENTING ME TO JUMP TO JUNSU LOL, the seat was tribune like so I can see clear w/out being blocked by the festival class. Eventually the concert started
