- The ‘queuing number’ on the tickets were irrelevant – there was never a line formed to get into the red carpet, people were just let in (with stools, at that). Mind you, I was already on my toes because my ticket was in the 400’s, but after finding out that the girl I was with was in the 1000’s, I rest assured that there were more people after me than before but nooooope.
- The Red Carpet was scheduled to finish at the same time as the ceremony – which meant there was no time for people to go from A to B without missing a bit of one or the other. In my case, I chose to leave after Infinite left in order to get closer to the stage at the actual ceremony, which meant that I missed EXO at the red carpet. (Which I’m honestly not crying over, but I did pay the full price – it’d be nice if I got to see everyone…)
- Clueless/Misinformed staff – After finding out that the red carpet and award ceremony times overlapped, I asked a staff member whether there would be time for people to move from the red carpet to the ceremony, to which I was told that there would “be plenty of time”… Most of the staff members also didn’t know what times lines were supposed to start forming or where which ways the exit/entrances were..
- Inconsistency with security checks – I went with the expectations that people would bring stools. I didn’t however, expect people to bring steel step ladders. Then they stop people from stepping on the bottom (10cm max) ledge of the barricade because of “saftety reasons”, but do nothing about the step ladder.
All of them were pretty much preventable and just logistics issues, so there really isn’t any excuse.
Anyways, onto the more exciting stuff!
I realized as I was putting this post together that I didn’t take that many photos during the night – I predominately took videos so maybe a compilation fancam video is on it’s way. No promises.

(It was a total surprise seeing Joohyuk at the airport – even he himself didn’t know why he was invited aha.)
