Sejong Center for the Performing Arts is the largest arts and cultural complex in SeoulSouth Korea. It has an interior area of 53,202m². It is situated in the center of the capital, on Sejongno, a main road that cuts through the capital city of the Joseon Dynasty. The center took 4 years to complete, opening its doors in 1978. It was "built as a cultural center for Seoulites."

The Grand Theater is an international-level performing hall equipped with high-tech musical facilities. It has three floors equipped with 3,022 seats. In the first and second floors, LCD monitors are set up for the first time in Korea, providing subtitles and other video showcases. 

 

The theater is equipped with the state-of-the-art stereo system spreading even subtle sound evenly to all seats in the theater. 
There are total 102 battens which help moving the stage more efficiently and quickly. This is a international-level multi-purpose hall excellent for not only classical performance but also other genres.

 


 

Seoul Sejong Centre is one of the most famous and authoritative music hall in Korea which is mostly use for classic.

 

@BoAkwon: ‘FIRST’ female idol star to perform in Sejong Cultural Center

 

Before BoA, other than male idol groups H.O.T and Seckies, only veteran musicians have had the chance to perform in Sejong culture center... ...like Shin Seunghoon, Patti Kim, Lee Seonhee, Kim Jongseo #proudofBoA #allhailtheQueen

FAN ACCOUNTS
 

@intw0628:

- #BoA said she was sick in the morning, she arrived here almost crawled. Then she did THAT? I'm speechless. She is not human. #Nowness
- BoA has so many strengths when it comes to the singing, but her effortless using of falsetto is just wow. She changes gears so smoothly.
- Combination of perfect singing, incredible dancing, and fabulous song making. No female singer in Korea has all three of them. Only #BoA.
- Band formation of today's concert was quite big. Two guitars, two keyboards, drum, percussion, and bass. Sound was great. #BoA #Nowness
- BoA feels shy of singing her old songs becuz she thinks she is too old to sing them. Atlantis Princess is one of those songs.
- BoA sang a lot of old hit numbers today. Milky Way, Atlantis Princess, and even Shine We Are. And many other songs from her 1st, 2nd album.
 

@91jason

- Last night my friend was up so late talking with me about the concert even though he was really tired. Gosh, @BoAkwon literally killed it!
- The concert was divided into 3 main parts & the VCR was role playing throughout the concert to connect these parts together, like a movie.
- There was a VCR's scene in BoA's practice room, BoA drank the water in Eat You Up bottle & people spotted some fans paintings on the wall.
- When BoA's parents entered the entrance, some fans recognized them & asked for photos. The Kwons knew it was happening. Lol #Nowness
- BoA actually wore pants when she sang 'Hope' but most people thought she wore a dress until she sat down on the chair. #Nowness LMFAO ??
- The ear-monitor hates BoA so much, it caused a problem again when BoA was singing Atlantis Princess & it made BoA look unhappy. #Nowness ??
- But then BoA was smiling a lot talking about the technical problems. BoA tried to make people happy & relieved throughout #Nowness Queen B!
- People stopped breathing when BoA opened #Nowness with GOT, it was unexpected, the whole intro thing was so radiant, powerful & charisma.
- 'Shattered' had a choreo for it & it came out exactly the same (feeling) when people first saw 'Call My Name' stage. #Nowness
- The timing of the VCR matched perfectly with each part of #Nowness People felt like they were watching a movie & hoped it would never end.
- One of the VCRs showed BoA's ordinary days during the preps for #Nowness, Pama-chan appeared & people thought it was so cute. Lol
- People also thought Pama-chan is older than most of them when they convert into human's age. #Nowness Lol
- The banner for #Nowness D1 was #Remember20000825, BoA did see it but she didn't make any reaction at all, maybe bc of the ear-monitor probs.
- People hope BoA will say something when they do another event (banner) today & they also hope for no more problems happen again. #Nowness ??
- The costume BoA wore for VALENTI & Clockwork #Nowness looked similar to what she wore for Did Ya. It matched perfectly with the songs. ??
 
@swagger (onehallyu):
Hi everyone!
 
wow... so you guys are fast.  guess I won't bother with a fan account too much then.  You already know the setlist, merch etc.
 
All I'm gonna add is IT WAS F**KING AWESOME SHOW!!!! :ahmagah: Our seats were front and center!  And I've been close to BoA before but never this close without something blocking my way.  BoA entered the stage in army type outfit. If you ever seen janet jackson MV "rhythm nation" it was like that.  She was so Boss and from very beginning was killing it with th dance moves!  A highlight for me was when BoA was on stage alone and a DJ came out and I guess he was suppose to play any song/mv and BoA would sing a long to it.  So... the DJ played a lot of old old songs like id peace, sweetie, listen to my heart, etc.  And she got little embarrassed cuz he kept picking old songs and even went over there to give him a "fake" punch like "why you choosing all these old songs"  :lol: But it brought back a lot of nostalgic feels.  the ending was amazing and she really got the crowd going.  I lost my voice a few times and was jumping up and down like a fool.  haha. 
 
Day 2 tomorrow! gonna need to get some rest!  :)

(STILL UPDATING) "Nowness" Day 2 (8/23):

 
PRESS CONFERENCE

CNEmF5JUcAA-pBR.jpg

BoA has achieved her childhood dream of performing at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts.

 

On August 23, during the press conference for her concert “2015 BoA Special Live ‘NOWNESS,’” BoA said, “When I was young, I saw H.O.T perform at the Sejong Center for the Performing Arts on TV. While watching them, I wondered when  I would be able to debut and perform on a stage like that, and now I’ve finally fulfilled my dream in 2015.”

 

“Even compared to other stages, it’s an honor to perfrom at the Sejong Cetner for the Performing Arts. This will further motivate me during my singing career as well,” she added.

 

Meanwhile, BoA has returned to fans with a concert in two years and seven months with “2015 BoA Special Live ‘NOWNESS.’” It also is special because it marks the 15th anniversary of her debut on August 25. 

 

 

- "It is not my knee but my ankle which is not in good a condition" 

- "I want to be a singer who shares the story of her life with the audience"
- Live singing&Dancing, I was worried if my 30s body can still move nicely, luckily I did"
- My strong image? Actually if you get to know, I'm quite empty-headed (her on variety show)
- "Atlantis Princess is a song holding a great pain"(her manager's death) 
- "No.1 being a hit song of 2002 was greatly meaningful to me" 
- “Firstly thank u for putting me into 20s category?? I feel really lucky for havin a birthday at the end of year”

 

FAN ACCOUNTS

@intw0628:

 

 

1. #SNSD sent flower to BoA to congratulate her concert with the message 'Please take care of your knees.'

2. When BoA heard about #SNSD's message, she jokingly said "My knees are ok but I have ankle problems. Gotta let them know."

 

 Translations credits, LegendofBoA:

 

 

@/hanna_0405 : I watched every BoA's concert and I can definitely say that 'NOWNESS' overwhelmed any other her previous shows. It was a MASTERPIECE. The show integrates her past 15 years.

@/LIMITED1105 : When she sings, she looks so charismatic but when she talks, she's so cute, cute, cute, CUTE!!!! I love her smile.

@/eunae27 : She looks like Janet Jackson but more similar with Michael Jackson. When I saw her costume, boeing sunglasses and the row with dancers, I died. We need additional shows!

@/gamzaba2 : It was SUPER EXCITING that hard to fully describe.

@/loveexokm : The show proved that why she's the best. As the title '15th anniversary celebrating concert', the show encompassed her debut to present, Korea, Japan and US songs. It was like a musical. Just it was the best. BoA is the BEST!!

@/Queen_Benus : ONLY BoA CAN DO LIKE THIS. ONLY BoA CAN.

@/minjae_jung : Just like any other her shows, there's a live band but they're special this time. There were 2 percussions (drum set and percussion), 2 keyboards and 2 guitars. They played like a rock band, somewhat psychedelic.

* When she performed 'The shadow', she wore boeing sunglasses and did FANTASTIC dance break with a apocalypse backdrop movie. Her wild expression and shouting 'Huh!!' was really badass.

* About the Clockwork; It was the highest level performance with a professional tango dancer, really technical and abundance expression

What's important about this is that BoA is the first female idol to hold a solo concert at this performing center. Only a few pop singers have ever held a concert at the Sejong Center in its entire history as it does not usually open up its venue to pop music performances. The last two idol groups to have done so are Sechskies and H.O.T back in 1990s, when the two boy groups were at their peak.

I am so happy to hear this and proud to be a BoA fan. This is really amazing news and another milestone she can add to her career. Just jelous that I would never be able to attend unless she comes to the states. There better be a DVD release!
I hope BoA gives it her all, show all her dancing skills and has an amazing stage.

@MrP: ticket sale info has yet to be announced. :[
 
Fans were speculating that "Here I Am" would be released around her actual anni., but we really don't know at this point. If SM ends up not releasing "Here I Am", they better at least release a DVD for her 15th anni. concert– and definitely not after 2 years but a lot sooner.
 
----------------------------------------------------------------
 
Any ideas what the setlist will be like? I hope it's the ultimate throw back along w/ songs from her 8th album. I can definitely do without "NO.1", "My Name", and "Hurricane Venus", she's performed them way too much. I need:
 
ID: Peace B (full performance w/ actual choreo!)
Sara
Don't Start Now
My Sweetie
Atlantis Princess
Milkyway
Spark
My Prayer
We
Moto
 
The setlist just needs to be completely different from her "Here I Am" concert.

Agree with you. She always performs No.1 and My Name. It becomes boring after some time.

It's not that I don't like those songs, but I believe everyone would like BoA to perform some other old hits aswell.

Personally, I'd like to hear one of those "cute" songs of her, such as Sara or My Sweetie :-)

I cant wait :-)

Full performance of spark and id peace b please!and somehow i wish she can perform 'the top' from her only one album.that's the only song that she has left unperformed from that album.that song has young and cheeky vibe to it.it will be totally fun.

I wanna see her performing kijeok and double as well.i hope she can do the extra dance routine she did for 'only one' in 'here i am' concert.that dance routine needs to be perfectly captured on tape and goes viral.and of course all of her songs from her kiss my lips album.

Wish she would come to Toronto too, but I don't see that happening in the near future... or ever lol.

This is a pretty big deal so - - time to pick up some extra shifts and buy a ticket to Korea.

 

Out of all her songs, I'd like to see her perform Shattered. It's one of her standouts (if not THE BEST) on her new album. How could she not have performed it yet >A>;;
