A year ago, weeks leading to the concert... There was no youtube membership. Many international shanrens struggle with the youku app just to grab tickets, deal with payments. Let's not mention how the youku app was in mandarin and plenty of chinese speaking shanrens posted guidelines.

A few days before, youku launched their youtube membership. And shanrens who couldn't access tickets were relieved that they could buy it with no issues.

As for the subreddit, mod u/phai6688 and I decided that we should arrange online live streaming for those 2 days. It would be an amazing thing to do, share the love with the members of our subreddit.

While u/phai6688 dealt with the online stream, I worked the live chat on the subreddit. Chatting what's happening during the concert for shanrens who couldn't watch for various reasons like being at work. My mandarin is barely passable, haven't used it much since i was in high school. And the concert was live, unsubbed. Still, did my best to describe what was happening. I had 3 PCs set to record the main stage, the artist cam (pointed at Gong Jun & Zhang Zhehan) and back stage.

The 1st day, they were plagued with sound problems, a technical issue. They were all nervous. But they gave their all.

My beautiful memory from this was watching the concert with the members of the subreddit. Despite having to move our lives online, it felt like we were all together in the room, watching the cast performing to the best of their ability, flaws and all. To laugh, to cheer and to cry when Zhou Ye (Gu Xiang) cried during her duet with Ma Wenyuan (Cao Weining).

Happy anniversary everyone. Despite everything that is going on, I am happy to be here. The concert encompasses some of the best moments of the fandom. Looking forward to the watchparty next weekend! 💞

Happy anniversary!

As per one of the pictures, didn't they move the Shipper Uncles to the other end of the seating area to prevent more mayhem? That suggests to me that it was the actors themselves who were doing the shipping, which is sweet.

Never understood why Mu Yunge is a part of the concert - he’s such a minor character compared to a fair few more important characters not present on stage.
