A.N.JELL holds its last concert

As previously announced, the cast of SBS’s You’re Beautiful held another mini-concert on November 23, where footage was shot for the drama’s final episode, which airs this Thursday.

The mini-concert was held at Seoul’s Melon AX Hall at 6pm and featured all four of its main cast members — Jang Geun-seok, Park Shin-hye, Lee Hong-ki, Jung Yong-hwa — who make up the fictional idol band A.N.JELL in the show. Even with only a few days’ notice, a crowd of more than 2,500 fans showed up.

A source with the production company explained, “The first concert happened before the drama began airing, and I was shocked by fans who showed up through word of mouth. But this ending concert doesn’t even compare to that in how much the fans cheered, which made me feel the enthusiasm for the drama for real. The actors and production team were spurred by that as they continue filming.”

Naturally, the concert featured the songs that have been prominently featured in the drama, which were sung by the actors themselves. Those included A.N.JELL’s “Promise” and “Still”; Jang Geun-seok also sang a few solos with “Good Bye” and “What Do I Do,” the latter of which is the track Tae-kyung remakes for his mother in the drama. Park Shin-hye sang her character’s theme song, “Lovely Day.”

Jang said, “Now that You’re Beautiful is ending, I feel really sad. SBS is wondering if they should seriously consider making a Season 2. Because we were scheduled against such a huge drama [IRIS], there was a lot of talk about us being doomed to die in the timeslot, but the fact that we stayed alive is the power of you all.”

(Note: Don’t get too carried away — this does NOT mean there will be a Season 2!)

After everything had ended, Jang said, “Thank you for coming to our final episode shoot. Thanks to you, I’m very happy.” Park Shin-hye said, “Thanks to You’re Beautiful, I’ve gained so much.” Lee Hong-ki concluded by saying, “In the future, we won’t be acting just as A.N.JELL anymore but as individuals, so please keep watching for us. Later on, I’ll set up my own agency and produce A.N.JELL myself.”

Meanwhile, the soundtrack continues to be a hit. Last month, it had sold more than 20,000 albums within its first week, which is an unusually high number for a soundtrack. Well, it has continued to perform strongly and has now sold more than 30,000 units total.

This has been so much fun; maybe the most fun I've ever had watching a drama. It's like the Kdrama version of Twilight (but with infinitely better writing and acting, and no glittery vampires. Just a glittery JGS. :-D )

omg i really really hope i don't see any spoilers as well. I didn't really expect anything from this drama. didn't even hear about it before the airing but i gave it a shot. now, it's my absolute favorite. it's very light and refreshing. i don't really know but all i know is that it makes me feel good when i watch it. I'm really sad now that it's ending, wishing it was longer. I'm definitely buying the DVD set when it comes out!

Ef, ef, ef -- I have already started crying, and it's not even Thursday night, for when I already have made plans to be thoroughly depressed.

Thank you so much, JB, for posting this story. I was hoping that you were not on a boycott of all YAB-related news, so a super-loud thanks to you for braving the spoiler waters to bring us this.

I have watched a few fan-clips on YouTube of this concert, and seriously, it got to me in the gut, heart, and head

This really was one gem of a drama. Ensemble-cast dramas can be tricky, and this one was pitch-perfect (lol, pun).

I will miss it tons.

At least we still have each other on dbeans...

--------

P.S. If anyone in this thread posts spoilers -- even obliquely referenced spoilers -- I swear I will hunt you and, OMG, I will so hunt you down. You can guess the rest :-) .

*grinning from ear to ear*

when I woke up this morning, I straightaway go on youtube to see whether there's any fancam on the concert. And there are some.. wish I was there for the concert.. the fans screamed everytime JGS sang, and chanted Hwang Tae Kyung in between song bridges. Cute!! (ok, i confess, i did too in front of my laptop LOL!)

Here's the link

Don't think there's any spoilers for the concert parts. BUT DON"T watch any of 'The Making Of' videos. I think it might contain some spoilers.

hahaha i was about to get REALLY excited when you wrote write underneath "note: don't get excited" i'm really sad that YAB is almost over. if it weren't for IRIS, it would have been so much more of a hit. it's way better than BOF! so if it weren't for IRIS, we would have an episode extension. i'm so sad. and i feel deprived. SEASON 2 PLEASE!!!!

Thank you JB for another great dose of YAB coverage!
I'm really thankful for this drama, earlier on Soompi I read the message the Hong sisters left on the SBS webpage, and their words of love were just so touching...they really care about us, fans/viewers, and everyone and everything involved with YAB! They wanted to bring out the young at hearts in everyone, and they certainly did! Old or young, I think all of us felt like we were experiencing first love or something, at least, I did, it was like falling in love again...They are amazing, thank you Hong sisters for making me and many others feel young again!

I am glad ANJell included their fans for the finale, as what's an idol without fans? I'm also impressed that they dressed up for the event, it really makes it special, a special occasion indeed.
It's almost farewell...but not yet!
Again thank you JB for sharing your lovely site with us!

I look forward to get the U R Beautiful DVD. I'm the DVD addict. I hate waiting everyday at cable network to watch for my favorite dramas. With good DVD, Friday night, popcorns, soda and good pillow, I am all couch photato whole night on Friday and woke up late on Saturday. If the dramas really good, most likely I will continue couch photato on Saturday toooo... Ouch... such fun and so relax. Look forward for U R Beautiful... pretty boys..-Lina

i wish we could start an online petition for season 2. or something similarly far-fetched. sigh.

@9 Nom_Kitteh
i'm so with you on every aspect of your post! from the sadness at the drama being over to the homicidal thoughts about people who post spoilers. seriously. i already got a really big spoiler because it's freaking EVERYWHERE and i kinda kicked a baby off a cliff after that happened. grrrr.

Yay! Thank goodness you wrote about this. I wanted some news about the mini concert but I know soompi is a spoiler minefield at the moment!

Gosh, I wanted to go to the mini concert! Damn work!

So excited to watch the last two eps but so sad to see this drama end too...

I'm hoping I can stay spoiler free till tomorrow, anyone else having a hard time avoiding them??

i wont put my hopes high up but i have a feeling that when this season of YB is over, and when the producers see the range of popularity this series have gone....they might be rethinking of that 2nd season (wishful thinking). i just want to comment on what JGS that they could not film anymore bec of the weather????? come on, then how will the other series film????? Maybe for some reason they just have to say these reasons.......ANYWAYS JGS I STILL LOVE U NO MATTER WHAT REASON YOU HAVE....I WILL BE AWAITING UR NEXT SERIES OR WHATEVER ACTIVITY U WILL BE DOING IN THE FUTURE.....

for this one, although it doesn't mean a 2nd season will be out, but at least SBS is considering about having a season 2! We still have hope!

haha! aja-aja fighting! Pray that Season 2 are still using the same cast and same writers! Otherwise its not fun!

Thank you JB for such a quick update on the concert!

It's really nice of them to organize another concert to film it as part of the drama and thank the fans as well. I wish I was there to see the fanstatic cast.

Can't for for Wednesday & Thursday. Sad I am as the drama is ending but this drama is going to live in my heart for a very very long time.

/chant with everyone -> DVD soon DVD soon!

Had been checking your site since last night hoping for an update on the concert. It's good that fans really went out there and gave their support. It somewhat makes it bearable for us non-Korean fans that we were unable to attend. It's really interesting how we YAB addicts always want to show our support and make the cast feel that they are soo loved and their efforts very much appreciated despite the low ratings. It used to make me feel put down whenever people mention the show's low ratings. But now i learned to just console myself by thinking: well, it's their lost, our gain" right?

All i know is that my 2009 has definitely become more exciting because of YAB and AnJell.. and HTY in particular. Keke..

@ Nom Kitteh, @ langdon813 , etc :

I'm already very depressed about the series ending this week. Yes, I expect tears (mine, as well those already in mid-shed by GMNy and HTK), but I also expect just a huge gaping HOLE in my life once it's over. It's the downside to watching a series live, but I wouldn't trade in the experience of watching it week by week with all of you... the analysis and commentary and sheer joy of communal watching is and has been wonderful. But oh, huge gaping hole in my entertainment life is looming. Sigh.

Sad that the show is ending.
Happy because the show inspired me and even for few days and few weeks the show really made me smile. I say that this is unforgettable.

Thanks JB for the recaps, because of your site I came to love Koreans. hehehehe.

Kudos!

It's great that so many fans supported them, as we overseas fans could not do so, though our hearts are already there. I watched both You're so beautiful and Iris (of course I only watch Iris after I have watched YAB), but frankly, I found that YAB is more interesting. Although we are sad that the drama comes to an end, I think it's only a start. From now on, I will pay more attention to the lovely characters (all three male stars are so cute and lovely) in their future development.

I'm sad that the show is ending this week. What will I do without Taekyung, Mi-nyeo, Jeremy, and Shinwoo and the beautiful, heartfelt music of A.N.Jell? I love the Hong sister dramas and it will probably be another 1-1.5 years before the next one will come out!

"Because we were scheduled against such a huge drama [IRIS], there was a lot of talk about us being doomed to die in the timeslot, but the fact that we stayed alive is the power of you all.”" ---> this almost brought tears to my eyes. it's so touching. I'm pretty if I hear JGS say this with his beautiful voice, I would really cry. And i love the pic with them posing alongside their 2,500 fans that you posted.

Despite low ratings, You're Beautiful was still really a hit. They maintained their ratings even with IRIS competing. There is such a fervent fan following. There are tons of people in korea watching it online. The OST has sold really well. 30,000!! and the pig-rabbit will surely sell well too! And the production has managed to make a solid drama without a lot of investment (compared to IRIS where it is really expensive to make each episode)

ppl.. i know it's hard but think all the wonderful things once the drama is wrapped up..

our young cast will be able to rest, sleep more (that's important) they've worked so hard. then they'll be able to come back to us with another project - tho individually..

we'll support them, yes?..

SBS already knows how strong the drama is - maybe they'll get A.N.jell to promote overseas? abt season 2 - mmm, i dunno.. mixed feeling on this one

those who order the cute pig rabbit will get them.. lucky you!

DVD with sub will be out.. (with special - bts, short interview) until then we'll haunt YT for all those loathsome spoilers, parody cuts, fan vidoes, their pre-YB appearance on varieties

what else? can't really think much now..

sure, our heart is heavy to say farewell (still another 2 eps to go) but all this has been a fun ride, we already make lots of fond memories of them ..

(ehhh, who am i kidding - i need jeremy's bus. anbody joining me?)
