After K-Pop stars Bi/Rain and JYJ have already held their concerts in Germany in 2011 the year started with a new highlight for K-pop fans. One of the most successful idol groups from Korea - B2ST- partied with the fans on their concert on the 12th of February in Berlin. Almost 3,000 fans from all over Germany and Europe gathered in the Columbia Hall on that Sunday night. Many have already been waiting the previous night in order to receive the best spots possible. B2ST started their concert at exactly 7:30 pm with their three biggest hits- “Special”, “Shock” and “Breathe” - and brought the hall to life. Rock sounds, an extensive laser show and special effects as well as on screen presentations did not allow the fans to rest for a bit. The ones who were not busy with screaming and cheering or being escorted by the securities- the first fan collapsed even before the concert has started- were singing along. B2ST was well aware of the atmosphere and after the outstanding opening they took a few moments to introduce themselves in German which was incredibly good. The show proceeded in a calmer manner with several of their ballads, followed by special stages which were commenced by Hyunseung.
B2ST sang all their songs live which is not a matter of course in the Korean pop- business. Their choreographies were flawless although the stage was a lot smaller than what the group is used to in Korea but the boys did not let this hold back their joy over performing and adapted well to the situation. It was obvious that they were enjoying their performances and passed this feeling on to their fans by not only giving their best but also by interacting with them. They brought a girl from Finland on stage, danced and serenaded her with their song “You”. In addition to that, they took a picture together, handed her the Polaroid, a bouquet as well as a huge teddy bear. But even the fans who did not receive the opportunity to be courted had to miss out. The boys came to the barriers frequently to shake hands, smile at cameras or to hand out gifts. Even before the concert has started the entertainment - Cube- decided to distribute gifts including small souvenirs and shirts which have been signed.
The concert had to come to an end eventually and after a little over two hours the boys finished their concert with “V.I.U” as a bonus and many who have not been a fan of B2ST at the beginning of the “Beautiful Show” have been persuaded and also people new to K-Pop turned into K-Pop fans. The effort B2ST displayed on stage- they received as love in return and therefore it is not wrong to assume that they will return to Germany at another time to celebrate with their fans once again.
