REVIEWxTWO: Fly to the Sky & Gummy 112914 @ Pasadena

Fly to the Sky and Gummy performed the “Masterpiece of Legends” concert at the Pasadena Civic Center and it was a show both Teri and I attended. We have been trying to figure out how to post about shows we have been going to and honestly, it’s kind of hard to break away from what everyone else does. then I thought, Teri is a huge fan of Fly to the Sky and I am not. Why not post 5 things we enjoyed. As for Gummy, we know she’s one of the best female soloists, but we both don’t follow her much, let’s post a few things about her as well. Let’s go!

Cheryl – Fly to the Sky

  1. FTTS look good. Look real good. I knew both Brian Joo and Hwanhee were attractive, but they share the stage with an equal presence that sort of threw me off.
  2. I don’t know who this backing band is, but whomever picked them, give them an award. They sounded clean and they didn’t overpower FTTS or Gummy.
  3. Some of this dancing looks dated, like choreographer Darren Hensen & NSYNC Joey Fatone looking, but that was the beauty. FTTS has been around for over a decade, I LOVED seeing them, in top form no less, dance like this!
  4. Brian and Hwanhee have a very yin & yang type of chemistry. Which is probably why their vocal styles fit so well and their pairing works.
  5. Hearing “너를 너를 너를 (You You You)” live after being subjected to a co-worker singing it in bits for the last 6 months was totally worth it.

Teri – Fly to the Sky

  1. I was fortunate enough to sit in on the fan meeting prior to the concert and the playfulness that FTTS has with their fans, ranging from a young adolescent girl that asked for an autograph during the Q&A (which they gladly obliged) to excited ajummas, was really heart touching. It was a family affair really.
  2. FTTS is mostly known for their beautiful ballads but it was great to see them dance so passionately along with their backup dancers. Particularly during “The Girl Is Mine” and “Man 2 Man” (that sass though).
  3. One of wonderful things about having a fluent English speaker in a Kpop group is they are their own translator. Even though the audience was primarily Korean speakers, Brian was able to translate for Hwanhee and help convey his feelings with ease to their “foreign” fans.
  4. Towards the end of the show I was getting a little sad that “Sea Of Love” wasn’t performed as it’s my favorite FTTS song. Silly me, it was their encore/closing song!
  5. I’ve only been following FTTS for a few years, but it was an exceptional treat to finally see the group that helped me meet one of my closest friends through their music.

Cheryl & Teri – Gummy

While we both LOVED Gummy’s opening performances for FTTS, we were a little disappointed they didn’t do any collaborations as part of the show. At least we have KBS.
