TVXQ 3rd Asia Tour "Mirotic"

I just received an UNCONFIRM bad news today. I was having lunch with my boss this afternoon (the CMG boss lar) and I asked if CMG is bringing in TVXQ's 3rd Asia tour to Malaysia or not. He indicated a "no". He said that the operating cost to host their concert is extremely high given their elaborate stage setup, huge sounds and very high-tech visual stuffs. In this current economic situation, the greatest fear of such huge operation is tickets sales.
-
As such, I am not sure if anyone else is planning to bring in TVXQ this year. A concert of such huge magnitude is not everybody's everyday game and definitely not easy to manage. So, those small-time concert organisers would be out of the league and its now left to just that one or two big boys' decision to take up the deal. I am not sure if Galaxy is considering. All TVXQ fan clubs and forums committee members, if you succeed in getting whoever to organise this concert, make sure you insist on Babyboss Pictures for the event's official photographer!
-
Their Seoul concert was just last weekend from February 20th to February 22nd at the Seoul Olympic Gymnastics Stadium. I heard that tickets were quickly snapped up within 5 minutes of sale! Alongside with this highly anticipated concert, Xiah Junsu is expected to put on a special solo performance of a dance song he composed himself called XIAHTIC (and making every girl faint)!

LOL! I will~ i think all those Cassiopeia will find you to be their Official Photographer IF they are really confirm coming~ HAHAHA.. wah.. your boss so fast say NO.. =(.. LOL!

Babyboss Pictures said...

Fen : Great, thanks! But now you guys gotto ensure that there will be someone organising the show lor. Gambate!!!

My boss say no cause the cost is very very high. And in Malaysia, not many companies can handle such large scale concerts.

AuTuMnBabY said...

yeap,totally understand the circumstances of holding such a big event under the huge economic impact now...

but actually, the one cancelled in Bangkok was not Mirotic concert, it was the SM Town Concert...but already replaced weeks ago,my fren attended that too^^and it was a huge success as well~~~

then we'll have to work hard for someone else to hold this event then~~~

oh yea, btw, reli thx alot for the precious pictures during the 2nd concert, it's really such a memorable one~~~reminds me of the great moments i had in the con~~~

Good News said...

Dunno why.. i read this post makes me damn happy....

No need to come la.... economy no good come for what jek... waste money niah.....

I think the cassiopeia is going to kill me very soon....

run away

by the way... why it got to be related with My smtown??? Are they official forums??? Recognise by SM???

진혜인 said...

WHAT DO YOU MEAN MY SMTOWN???!!!!!

Babyboss Pictures said...

Autumn Baby : Oh, the one cancelled in Bangkok was not Mirotic? Ok, I am sure you guys know it better then me! Yea, lets pray hard that there will be someone in Malaysia to host the Mirotic concert.

Good News :TVXQ not coming to Malaysia you very happy? Yea, I think cassiopeia people will kill you soon! haha... Actually, I am not sure "which" forum is suppose to be doing what. I just named "MY-SMTOWN" cause I know them. I guess I should have also named "Sayang DBSK" since I have attended their event before and thus I now know them as well. I hope I have not offended any other TVXQ forums by not naming them in my blog post. Or maybe I should not have named anyone at all, perhaps?

Vivian : Why you so garang wan? All in big caps! And with all the ??? and !!!. Scared lar me! By the way, how did I "kek sei lei"?

miamihero said...

Let's hope they will come here again. I heard about the petitions before this, but I have no idea about the latest news though. If they ever gonna come here again. Im definitely gonna stalk them again! hahaha, oh i didn't know you're a fan of them! :P

Babyboss Pictures said...

miamihero :Yea, I heard about the petition too! Hope it works! Actually, I am not exactly a TVXQ fan per say but I do enjoy their music. Afteral, they do have some really cool hits! I just happen to be appointed as official photographer for both the concerts here in Malaysia in 2006 and 2007. :P

3verlasting_fen said...

Onnie ar.. dun kek sei.. @@.. if u kek sei.. then how am i going to live with my "baby" without U?? LOL!!!

js said...

off topic~

well, to be frank, ur boss kind-of hurt the feelings of another kpop artist's local fanclub in yr2007 and we really hope that should he come again, ur boss's company will not be the organizer...

plus, even tho the operating cost is high, its the fans that have to fork-out the $$ the get the tickets.

Babyboss Pictures said...

FEN : Who is your "baby"?

JS : No lar, its not about hurting anyone's feelings, its strictly about business. There are many things that the fans don't see in the process of organising a huge concert. Lots of technical problems and disagreements wan! Just to let out a little secret, regarding the tickets bought by the fans, they are actually NOT enough to cover the entire operation cost of a huge concert. A big bulk of the income comes from sponsors and other recources. So, securing good and reliable corporate sponsors are also ultimately important.

Yun Yi said...

haha....ok...this might sound ridiculous...

michael, i join u in ur event photographing team can?

:p

Babyboss Pictures said...

YUN YI : Sure, Babyboss Pictures is always on the lookout for new talents in photography. I welcome all new talents.

If everything is ok, you can start as Junior Photographer, just like how the rest of them started. When you are "good enough" and posses a good wealth of shooting experience, we'll call you an "Associate Photographer". By then, you should already be doing lots of freelance work and perhaps, maybe even shooting fulltime.

But for now, I believe you are still studying? And as such, your time may not be as flexible as necessary. I will inform you of my coing shoots and you tell me if you can come along or not.

As for your gears, you MUST have the following stuffs :

1. DSLR, preferrably Nikon D80 and above OR Canon 450D and above.

2. Speedlight Flash Unit. The pop of flash on your camera body is quite useless when shooting events and stuffs. The recharge time is far too slow.

3. Lens : short tele (around 17-80) and a long tele (around 70-210). Preferrably f2.8 lens or at least f4.

4. Memory Cards : At least 4GB, 6GB and above is recommended. can be in multiple cards of at least 1GB each.

5. Batteries : An extra spare batt for your camera body. At least 3 sets of AA batts (2,000mAh and above) for your speedlight flash unit.

6. Lot of commitment and passion. Creativity is a huge bonus!

Drop me a text message and we'll keep in touch. 019-3213219

Babyboss Pictures said...

FEN : Alamak, no camera how to shoot? No more Charlie's Angels liao lor, like that.

VIVIAN : Why you always so negative about yourself wan? All of us are beautiful in our own ways. Cause real beauty comes from the HEART.

Fen said...

Ya lor... onnie.. dun be so negative.. LOL.. i also not "sexy" and my leg looks like an elephant too~ xD.. nvm nvm.. we be non-sexy Charlie's Angels! HAHAHAHA

Babyboss Pictures said...

FEN : WHAT???!!! Handphone camera ah? Die lar! The subject walk out of your frame you still belum capture the shot lar! Kenot. Fail. No more Charlie's Angel liao lar!

You ask Vivian not to be negative, then you sendiri negative pulak. Go say your "not sexy" legs look like elephant! Sigh...

3verlasting_fen said...

LOL~ xD... hahahaha... ahhh.. buy that 007 sony erisson hp lor... since 007 used it.. then charlie's angels also can use liao~ xD

HAHAHAHA... then i should say.. i have a "long" and "sexy" legs.. LOL!!! xD

Babyboss Pictures said...

FEN : Sony Ericsson 007 hp also wont work lar. Alamak, if you really dun have long and sexy legs, then dun purposely hantam in lar. Gotto be truthful to oneself also mar. Not being negative does not mean the need to bullshit too mar. Just be yourself and you'll be great!

3verlasting_fen said...

hahahaa~ xD.. i have long legs only.. for sexy just make delete it~ LOLLLLLLL

W.N.Izzaty said...

Bro!! i wanna join too ^^
i really want to be a photographer after graduates..
my bro-in-law is a photographer also oo..so jealous TT TT

huh, i wish i hv superpower to turn my olympus FE320 to nikon d80!!!!!
*i should start saving now*

Babyboss Pictures said...

FEN : Yes, long legs are nice!

IZZATY : If you really decided to be a professional photographer, start planning and thinking like one NOW. Start printing namecards and start promoting yourself. Start building up your portfolio. Have an online photo gallery like Pbase or Smugmug. Start saving money for at least semi-pro gears. Start taking freelance jobs now at NO PAY. Gain the experience, build your portfolio. Do this consistently for a year and you will be ready!

But since your bro-in-law is a photographer, why dun u take some tips from him?

D80 is a lil out now. Its D90 today! And yes, you should start saving.

W.N.Izzaty said...

actually at this time he's does it as part time job..
mostly d shoots are for friends n family..

here is his FLICKR: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jebon506/

i think he uses D80.

thanks for d advice.
btw, wat is portfolio? my own collection of pics eh??

Babyboss Pictures said...

IZZATY : Yes, portfolio is like a your photo album, your collection of pics to show off to clients and convince them of your professionalism. So, a good portfolio helps in securing business.

Yea, Flickr is also another good online album.

Yun Yi said...

aaa michael...long time d didnt visit ur blog :( been busy with my game production lately. hardly got the time to breathe oso...sigh.

OMG...just saw ur reply...sooooo many things to prepare...and $$$ would be the major problem.

i'm having nikon D70s nia..which had been following me everywhere, to events and overseas...the only thing I have with me now is...number 6 i guess :(.

sigh...looks like i can't pursue my dream without $$$. Nid to find ways to earn more!!! Babyboss Pictures, wait for meeee!!!

Babyboss Pictures said...

YUN YI : Those that I listed there is recommended to have. Though not compulsory but it would be very useful if u have that minimum setup. That setup is quite important when u shoot events or weddings or concerts. If you are just shooting for fun and holiday stuffs, then any simple setup will do.

Yes, I know it cost a lot of money to start photography, especially when you want to get serious into shooting events and concerts. Have to find ways to raise that budget.

Dun worry, Babyboss will wait for you! haha...
