BewhY: First US Tour ‘The Blind Star’ in Los Angeles – Review
by Dennis & Dee
South Korean Hip Hop star BewhY kicked off his First US Tour ‘The Blind Star’ at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday, November 1st.
In 2015, BewhY was the winner of Korea’s top rap survival show, Show Me the Money 5, and quickly became one of the hottest and most in-demand hip-hop stars to make a splash on the Korean hip hop world. This independent rapper has been associated with various hip hop acts such as CJAMM, Simon D & Gray, and has become even more well know due to his collaborations with G-Dragon and CL. The last time BewhY performed in North America was at KTOWN Night market and SMTM5 Concert in Los Angeles, CA.
On his first stop of The Blind Star tour in LA, he burst onto the stage dressed in a blazer, leather pants and his favorite Balenciaga shoes. His first couple songs (Red Carpet, Bichael Yackson, 9ucci Bank) showed off his fast rapping skills and his charismatic stage presence. On stage, BewhY spoke Korean to the audience in a thankful manner tone and revealed more about how important of his first album and his fans are to him. He took the time after every couple songs talking to the audience and show off his witty humor.
At one point, he politely asked the audience to put the cameras during his talking sets so he can connect with them on a more personal level. The audience respected his wishes and BewhY continued to hype the audience with his close interactions and energetic moves. In between the sets, a special guest named Justin Park performed 3 songs and showcased his fancy dance moves and smooth vocals.
Personally, one of the highlight performance to see in this concert was Forever. Although there was some technical difficulties during some of the songs transitions as well as a few microphone problems, BewhY handled them very professionally. He also performed a couple songs from his mixtapes such as Time Goes On, In Trinity and brought back a SMTM5 song Who You?
BewhY graced his fans with a long encore of 5 songs, which he ended with two songs from SMTM5, Who You?, and Day Day – a big treat for the SMTM fans.
BewhY and his First US Tour ‘The Blind Star’ will move throughout six US cities before wrapping at New York’s Stage 48 on November 12th.
