Day 6 Brings Some Rock To K-Pop At New York Fan Meet
In the midst of the ongoing globalization of K-pop groups, Day6 adds more fuel to the fire by being a K-pop group that doesn't really do choreo, but instruments.
Debuting under JYP Entertainment (Wonder Girls, GOT7, 2PM) in 2015, Day6 is K-pop's alternative rock band that consists of five charming members - Young K, Jae, Dowoon, Wonpil and Sungjin.
Previously making their first east coast appearance during KCON New York 2016 last year, the band came back for a sold out show on Tuesday, October 24 at Town Hall in the heart of Time Square.
Kicking the night off with a powerful live of their first EveryDay6 single "I Wait," fans roared with screams and chants to rock out with Korea's hottest pop/rock band. Performing their hits "Letting Go," "Congratulations," "I Smile" and more, Day6 had their forget they had seats in the first place.
Unlike your ordinary rock show, this was a fan meeting where fans were able to learn more about the band and interact with them in between songs. While games and a Q&A session were on the agenda, surprises awaited both parties as Day6 screened a special video they filmed the night before of them touring New York City and showing off their hotel (ala MTV Cribs style). In return, fans all over the audience held up similar signs showing their love and support for their group towards the end of the show.
"Now I'm gonna go back home and realize you guys are crazy," Young K said as part of his closing remarks.
While the band was worried about the outcome of their tour, American fans instantly proved them wrong with the amount of smiles, laughter, screams and singing they produce at each show.
