Korean boy group B1A4 brought fans to a surreal and dream-like experience as it wrapped up two out of its four ‘LIVE SPACE 2017’ concerts last February 4 and 5 at the Blue Square Samsung Card Hall.
Tickets for the said concert sold out within five minutes after the sales started. However, BANAs who missed the concert need not fret for B1A4 has shared behind the scenes photos and revealed their thoughts on the concert in an interview with STARCAST by Dispatch.
“We practiced for about one month,” member CNU revealed on their preparation for the concert. B1A4 prepared 26 songs, including tracks from their latest album ‘Good Timing’ released in November 2016.
CNU added that the songs were rearranged, as well as the choreography, especially for the concert. “We even rehearsed with ensemble in live,” he said.
‘LIVE SPACE 2017’ used the theme of universe and space, which were apparent in the posters released earlier by WM Entertainment.
According to leader Jinyoung, members went into a discussion on what the theme would be used for their series of concert. “It’s a theme where you can travel in the future and the past at the same time,” he said.
Sandeul also relayed his thoughts on the concept, and admitted that some fans had difficult time comprehending the theme. However, he assured BANAs that the concert will give light as to why ‘LIVE SPACE 2017’ theme was such.
“You’ll feel like being absorbed into the universe,” he added.

“We are going to rise a time machine with the fans,” CNU revealed. The members have prepared a singing medley for the fans as photos from their earlier days flash on the screen. “We wanted to make a performance that can be treasured by all,” CNU added.
Aside from the singing medley and new performances of Good Timing tracks, B1A4 has also prepared unit performances. Jinyoung and CNU prepared a performance of Too Much, originally sung by Sandeul and Gongchan. “The fans wished to watch the performance of the older members, so we prepared for it,” said CNU.

They advised fans to bring extra clothes. “We may sprinkle a lot of water because you guys might feel hot,” said Gongchan.
