On August 15th about 15 Kpop fans got together in Glasgow for the day. The turnout, although small, was good for a meet and a first meet at that. Everyone managed to have a great time, despite the ever present Scottish rain.
At 11 o’clock people began to gather at George Square and about an hour later, 7 of us set off for Shilla – a Korean restaurant. Another person joined us as we arrived at the restaurant – completely drenched – and another 2 joined us at the restaurant later. Once a few of us were finished with our food we left the others to finish and headed to the park at about 2 o’clock to meet another 5 people.
The next 2 and a half hours were spend chatting, messing around and of course, playing Kpop loudly. Personally, having travelled 2 hours on a bus to meet everyone, I was really pleased. It was the first Kpop event I’d managed to attend and I had a blast, although I have to admit being in a group where everyone likes Kpop was a very new experience for me, and a great one at that. The food at the restaurant was amazing too. But I was a bit disappointed when I had to leave early to catch my bus back to Dundee!
To anyone that didn’t make it; next time please come, you’ll have a great time!
Hopefully next time there’s a Glasgow (or even Edinburgh, or Dundee – I wish) meet or mob, a lot more people show up. The more the merrier, right?
