I was able to go to TRB in Chicago the other day and let me tell you it was an amazing experience. I'm going through some horrible post-concert depression right now so I thought nothing would make me feel better than reliving the experience with a fan account. I filmed a vlog for the whole thing that I'll be posting within the next few days, so I'm not sure how much of this will be repeated in that if you watch it.
First of all my seats were the bomb. I was so close to the stage... like wow. Before the show started I could see Jungkook and Jimin's hats for We Are Bulletproof pt. 2 just sitting there... oh my god. These are the only pictures I took since I didn't want to risk getting caught with my giant phone, and honestly I would have been too hyped up to film anything nicely!
Most of the stuff in this was written the night of after the concert and on my 12 hour car ride home, so it's a little incoherent... I'll try to order it as coherently as possible!
*When they were on stage in the dark during the time they would normally be raised up from under the stage they were SO HOT like oh my god... and Rap Monster kept raising his harms and getting us to cheer for them
*The first person I saw was Jungkook and I was so surprised how attractive he is in person! Like wow. But you can tell he knows it because he was the one making eye contact with everyone the whole night and every time someone screamed because of it (including me lol) he would smirk or his smile would get bigger. He probably lives off girl's screams like in Monster's Inc. I never used to pay much attention to him because he's my little sister's age and I knew that if I got attached to him I would worry about him way too much like I worry about my sister, but now I feel like he's okay on his own and I'm so proud of him... Seeing him so confident when he used to be so critical of himself just makes my heart feel so warm and fuzzy ^_^
*At one point around the beginning I was like damn Jungkook has nice hair
*When they were doing intros V didn't even say his name... he just raised his arms like "you know who I am" and when we all screamed his name he smiled so big! In the last ment he made the crowd follow him in cheers, too. He's so cute!
*Rap Monster said something about him having wanted to perform in Chicago since he was young because a lot of the people he's influenced by have performed there and I was so glad I got to be a part of fulfilling his dream
*Everyone was so loud that I barely understood anything they said except for Jimin and JHope who practically yelled the whole time
*There were times where Jin or Jimin would bite their lips and I would die
*I need to measure how tall I am because I know for sure that Rap Monster and Jin are taller but I swear to god I was eye level with the rest of them... I would have thought that since Jimin and Suga are a head taller I would have noticed. I usually have no concept of height since I look everyone in the eye and don't really notice how tall they are until a while later. Maybe since hi-touch was so fast I couldn't tell how tall everyone was. Or maybe I'm taller than I thought. NOPE I actually got up to measure myself just now and I'm 160cm/5'3" so IDK how I remember all the members at eye level.
*JIN WAS LOOKING AT ME ON THE DOWN LOW BECAUSE THAT ONE TIME I WAS LOOKING AT TAEHYUNG OR JHOPE PROBABLY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STAGE I FELT EYES ON ME AND I LOOKED RIGHT AT JIN BUT I CAUGHT HIM LOOKING AWAY REAL FAST WTF KIND OF B.S. WAS THAT LIKE JIN REFUSED TO LOOK AT ANYONE FOR LONGER THAN A SECOND
*But it was still cute how when we were all cheering really loudly Jin would look out at the whole theater in awe and smile like "Wow these people are cheering for me and my group. I've made it!"
*Yoongi's mouth when he raps/speaks/anything
*Yoongi's little facial expressions when he dances are so cute oh my god like sometimes he'll purse his lips and other times he does that one look where his lips form a straight line for like a split second okay I just really love his mouth I'll stop
*Jungkook is so uncomfortably attractive like he will forever be my little sister's age and I hate it
*JHope and Rap Monster kept making fun of the fact that we couldn't sing a lot of the Korean and were making gibberish mumbling sounds like "mfmfmdmsmnmmmm" after each song where they had us sing a lot of the parts. Except for Miss Right though, we sang the chorus for that pretty well!
*MISS RIGHT OH MY GOD so there was this one part where JHope was pointing at this girl in front of me and Jimin noticed so he sang a little bit of the chorus to her and high fived her in the end and oh my god it was such a beautiful moment
*Rap Monster isn't as unattractive as I thought... it's more like stylistically homely... I just don't like the shape of his head tbh that's why I think this. I mean he's attractive, but like in a quirky American Apparel model sort of way
*His mannerisms are also really weird... like I know he's hella smart but like if he went to public school in America he would get picked on probably... like his face kept scrunching up and his dancing is awkward tbh... he's such a nerd...
*Taehyung's legs in those jeans are
*BTS in jeans
*You heard it here folks Jimin's butt just as great in person as it is in video
*Speaking of Jimin's butt- as part of the aegyo in 여기 봐, Jimin shook his butt right in front of us lord have mercy. Like I never thought I would be able to say "Park Jimin shook his butt within 6 feet of my face." but I can and I'll for sure remember that moment for the rest of my life
*Before 여기 봐 they all did rock paper scissors to decide who was going to do aegyo but I already knew that part was scripted and that Suga was going to do it and everyone was pointing at who they wanted to do aegyo so I pointed at Suga and he saw me and rolled his eyes and shook his head I. AM. IN. L O V E.
*I'm not sure if it's the right song but during 여기 봐 Rap Monster (?) was doing his really fast rap and getting really into it and Jimin got up close to him and was tapping his fingers on Rap Monster's mic to the beat and it was such a weird show of support but I LOVED IT.
*I got water thrown on me 3 times and twice it landed in my mouth and once on my eye I feel blessed. Twice during Cypher and once by surprise in another song by V.
*CYPHER WAS SOOOOOOO GOOD!!! Yoongi's rap was so good live... and Rap Monster got so excited during it it was amazing. And JHope was so good oh my god.
*Jimin needs to control his tongue because he sticks it out way too much for my heart to take tbh
*During the chorus of I NEED U both Jungkook and Jimin looked at me AND HELD EYE CONTACT DURING THE BODY ROLLS while I ascended to heaven
*It's weird that I know their names and we've met but they don't know my name and probably never will
*At hi touch there was a lady telling us to remember to breathe before lmao and then there were more people in there that were sort of laughing at us and any other day I would have been offended but all I thought was "whatever I'm meeting 7 favorite people in this world besides my immediate family nothing you do can ruin this broski"
*I was so flustered during hi touch that all I could say was "thank you for coming!" but they all nodded and looked so grateful! I'm going to make sure I actually say what I had planned when I see them again in September. I also grabbed Rap Monster's hand and someone else's by the wrist like I was gonna go into a bro hug on accident
*my memory completely skips over jimin and v at hi touch because they were right after suga... like my mind goes "suga ????? ????? rap monster jungkook jin jhope" like that's the impact min yoongi has on me
*during hi touch jin slapped my hand instead of doing a handshake so I gave him a sassy look and he cocked his head and gave me one back before I moved on to JHope. I felt the interstellar connection and you're all invited to our wedding ^_^
*My friend was wearing a shirt that I found for her in Forever 21 that had "hope" at the bottom and JHope pointed it out during hi touch! I'm such a good matchmaker lol
Overall this was the best night of my life and I cannot wait to do it again in September and hopefully when they come back around for part 3, which they announced at the end. PART 3 GUYS. I can't handle it. I fell asleep on the car ride a little and had a dream about Jungkook having a dance solo and then a weird stage view idk what that was BUT it made me remember that there's an extremely small chance that I'll show up in their dreams since the faces you see in dreams can only be of people that you've physically come across so I'll see them again in their dreams!
I hope this made sense, since I really just edited what I wrote the past couple of nights... I got a little emotional while writing it ^_^ Check the #TRBinChicago Twitter tag for more and look for my vlog when I post it!!!
