    Not really. I was there for meet and greet and didn't hear any rehearsal cuz she was busy taking pictures with fans.

    FYI: Rehearsal don't always happen on the same day with the concert date. Artist often do rehearsal 1 or 2 days before the actual performance because they'll so tired if they do rehearsal and performance at the same day. You can watch Girls' Generation The 1st Asia Tour Into The New World 2010 DVD to know more about stage rehearsal (they include their stage rehearsal for their encore concert in DVD as bonus).

    Oh yeah, they add some of their stage rehearsal, back stage, and comment(?) for their Girls Generation Japan 4th Tour 2015 Phantasia in Blu-Ray package as bonus too. Happy watch :)

    I do know that artist have rehearsal's but for this particular timeline, she didn't seem to have time. And I don't need to do any far research to watch SNSD. I own a lot of concert DVDs with rehearsals and have been to plenty of other concerts where they do rehearsals and even cut off more than half of each song to kill time. I'm not bluffing but from what I speculated from actually being there at the LA show where meet n greet was being conducted with her even having a backstage gathering with her friends, there was no rehearsal.

    So you have another DVD's concert when they do rehearsal... that's good then. Sadly I only have Girls' Generation goods, that's why I recommended you that. You aren't bluffing but speculated? Hm,,, Do you have any thought that perhaps she did rehearsal in the morning? before meet and greet at 6.00 PM? Just like when Infinity Challenge did their Music Festival Special (collaboration with other Korean artist/musician/producer), the rehearsal happen in the morning with full song played and even some with repeat to make it perfect.

    We can continue to doubt each other a with questions after another but both of us can't prove anything but I might just have a better chance of being closer to the truth than you since I was there and you only have a snsd DVD to back you up :-/

    OK then. It's just nearly impossible to hold a show without rehearsal before that, because never watched any show without rehearsal before (eg. the artist just come 2 hours before the show and just perform there). When Korea Music show held their show at another country, the artists still did their rehearsal before performance to check the music (MR), earphone, and mic, even though they don't do their full dance when rehearsal to save their energy for the actual performance.

    Bringing up IC is also irrelevant because there was no show prior to that. Now if you want to argue with me about sound check then maybe you got something there honey, but it sounds to me that you are accusing her of intentionally displaying this version which seems here that both you and I can't prove. I was only answering to the user above that within 2 hours before the concert, there was no rehearsal. Just the band adjusting some tunes. CL was busy backstage with her other celebrity friends and shortly came out to greet fans outside of the auditorium.

    PS. actually you can see more detail when you watch the DVD ver. rather than attending to their concert yourself.

    And of course she's had rehearsals prior to this this whole tour period but if you followed her at all (which I doubt) you would know that the stage is displayed the same in every show. The script was the same minus some outfits. I'm can be sure she checked the stage and did some sound check. I actually watched Big Bang do this plenty of time... snippets of the song will play and then they move it along quickly. That's what I know to back my view. And once again, I was there. Lol

    Sure but until this DVD version comes out, you still didn't prove your point to me. :)

    Why bringing IC is irrelevant? Did you watch the show? (I'm talking about IC Music Festival Special). No no no, you got me wrong here, I don't accusing her intentionally displaying this ver. just informing you about the rehearsal part. She said she didn't realize it sooner and that's have big possibility, because if you don't really care about something, you won't immediately realized about that. [PS. the rehearsal that Girls' Generation did with their 1st Asia Tour Into The New World 2010 was for their encore concert, Taeyeon said that actually this concert have the same stage performance with their previous concert. However, despite all of that, they still did all the rehearsal with full performance]

    of course I watched IC. Do u see my name ? VIP first n foremost so yea I know what you're talking about. But is CL concert a festival? Is she performing songs she's never done before like the contestants of IC? And lastly, is this Korea? lol anyway yes, I was doing me but you addressed your concern so I addressed mine. I was there 3 hours prior to the show and maybe I did miss hearing a rehearsal going on, but within the two hour while I was in the building, there was nothing but bands adjusting tunes, and the promised meet and greet which lasted a whole hour prior to when the show started.

    CL is still korean artist under korean company right? and I already said that when Korea Music show held their show in other country, their artist still do rehearsal with full song played, minus clothes performance and heavy dance. And I never saw or watch a performances without rehearsal before, so if you could show me that I would glad to rethink about your speculation.

    And give it up, I'm not watching another SNSD concert as they are not my style of LIVE performance. No offense, it's just me and HOW I want to be entertained.

    about what song? CL MTBD? I think it'll be difficult because you know about me and GG right? LOL so perhaps it'll be more easy if you show me about the performance that running without rehearsal (any artist performance that you know). Of course, not everyone have the same style of music, I just show unto you about an encore concert rehearsal with full performance that take a day before the actual performances date. You can check it yourself if you doubt about that but I never forced you to watch it :)

    PS. what I said about Korean Music show that held their show in another country is a who with various Korean artist (not only one artist) and they mostly perform their best song that they often performed it in Korea (on-air and off-air). Just saying.

    Well in this case, your 1-2 days of lead time for rehearsal is invalid as I already told you her agenda. If she had a rehearsal in the morning then both you and I won't know. I'm going by the lead time of what the other user brought up. If you guys think it's fishy that's fine, but it's still an assumption. It can't be proven and no concert DVD or BTS videos of another group could prove that either. Anything else?

    Again referring to the original user as commenting about it being "fishy" and you here spending your precious time trying to convince me about this 1-2 day rehearsal so I can easily assume you think CL's excuse is fishy right? Just like how you assumed she doesn't care enough? Lol boo we can go at it all night but we both won't be able to prove each other wrong. Just say what you truly mean and stop using your words so safely so I can get to the point too. So what's bothering you initially?

    What have I said in here my defense that's making you so persistent about whether she had this rehearsal or not? Did she take you last piece of pie? Lol seriously I'm only informing from what the original commenter was concerned about. That's all. If you are Muslim then I see why you are questioning me but if not, I can only see u as an instigator sooo..... that's my last words for ya. Good talks and thanks for the laugh. Lol

    Sigh... again, I'm not replying or responding to the original comment. I replied your comment and that's about rehearsal part. You said she didn't do rehearsal and that's what bothering me. So do you understand now? OK? Clear?

    Well my comment is affiliated with the original commenter but u decided to meddle so you are definitely part of this convo cuz I'm sure u can read why this convo started. *scratches head. No o don't understand your existence at the moment in my life because you still didn't prove anything after all this talk. You failed to understand what I keep explaining about the 2 hours prior to the show but u keep bringing up this DVD like you're trying to sell a mixtape at a local gas station. In conclusion, give it up. Lol

    LOL, What are you talking about? I think you misunderstanding me, Or is that what you plan to play at? 😒 OK then, but I don't think I'll join that, so go play by yourself because you have already satisfied me with your previous statement regarding artist rehearsal (that most agreed with me). So see ya...

    Oh I never have issue with feeding individuals with facts about the person they probably don't care about (it's apparent) and thank you actually, it was a chance for me to actually share a bit about my concert experience about this awesome live show and live band. :)
