You did everything you were told to do by the K-pop concert gurus. You upgraded to the blazing fast WiFi package. You set up multiple devices with multiple tabs open on each, except for that one site that will kick you off if you have more than one tab open. You registered on the sites ahead of time.

Come join me as I discuss my first official bias and how I found his group.
