First Korean Rock Concert - Led Apple

I found this concert completely randomly. I knew of the group Led Apple and liked their music, but I wasn't a mega fan or anything like that. I was looking for theatre tickets and saw the listing for it though, and it was only twenty bucks! I couldn't pass up a concert of a group I liked for that price so I immediately bought the tickets.

What I experienced... was completely different than what I had thought.  Yes, they were considered a 'rock' group, but I personally considered them more of a pop group due to the style of their music videos. Seeing them live though... they are definitely a rock group! I was pleasantly surprised to hear them strum out some Metallica in between their songs. Even their own songs sounded so much better in person. I learned that they got their name, Led Apple, from the group Led Zeppelin.

Don't get me wrong, I love kpop music, but there's something about rock music that is just exhilarating. It was great to see the band as their normal selves rather than being plastered with makeup and fancy clothes like in their music videos.  They personally looked much sexier in just plain t-shirts. (Or lack of a t-shirt..)

I also was really close to the stage. Luckily the band isn't very well known yet so they played in a relatively small venue in a basement of a building. I was maybe 10-15 feet from the stage and could have easily fought my way to the front.

I tried to get photos and video, but it was hard because there was one lady that kept walking around telling people to stop. I managed to sneak a few before being caught.

Oh, and here's one of their music videos. It totally does not do them justice:
