KCON 2012: 15 Things Seen & Overheard Billboard.com

4Minute were the headliners of the concert, being introduced as the “representative group of K-pop.” Yet once they began their set with the saxophone-dance track “Volume Up” with member Gayoon missing, they kicked things off on an entirely wrong note. Hyun-a and her bandmates came off as stiff and lacking energy for how huge of a song “Volume Up” is, with very minimal choreography. With spaces in their formations for where Gayoon would’ve been, the opening statement about 4Minute being a “representative group” of K-pop may have instead explained that K-pop acts are so calculated that they are unable to be malleable when members are missing.
