Sentimental City Concert

3 Feb

Last night I went to the Sentimental City concert at the Wilshire Ebel theater with a couple of friends (Gina & Kelly).  The title of the concert was just the theme.  Lee, So Ra & Sung, Si Kyung were the two singers.  If you are not familiar with Korean singers, both are accomplished and loved singers.  They are both singers of ballads and have teamed up for this concert tour which managed to make it’s way to LA. (Although, Lee So Ra can really rock out too~)

The theater was on the small side which made for an intimate style setting.  We had seats that were on the 1st floor dead center.  Amazing.  I was not at all disappointed.  Both are amazing live.  Lee, So Ra was very impressive.  I was struck by how her performances were so powerful yet managed to allow the audience to be right along side her to feel the pain she felt in the sad lyrics of her songs on such an intimate level.  (She sings mostly sad songs about heart break.)  On the other hand Sung, Si Kyung who’s voice was so very smooth didn’t connect quite so well but made up for it by just touching the hearts of all the women in the audience.  There were a few times where the entire theater went silent during his ballads, no hoots, no claps, just awe.  I strongly suspect that everyone was involved in fantasies involving what it would be like to have him as a boyfriend. ^_^  (Of course it doesn’t hurt that the guy is maybe 6’4″ or so… ah we Korean women are such suckers for tall guys, esp. ones who sing well~ )  Both did songs alone and in duet.

Gina & Kelly both took pics and vids so, I’ll post some up later for your viewing pleasure~

In the meanwhile, here are some video clips of the two singers I found from a couple of months ago.  The concert songs were similar/same but the theatrical setting was much better.  Also, for some reason Sung, Si Kyung doesn’t look nearly as cute here as he normally does.  Oh well… at least you get the idea .
