BEAST meets B2UTY photobook

So this is a photobook for the 1st Beast fanmeeting Asia tour. It was released on 6th August 2012 - over a year ago T______T but the fanmeet tour itself took place on the 1st to the 23rd of July in 2011.

The photobook is actually really nice - like all Beast photobooks kekeke! It has so many lovely pictures!

So the photobook has another paper covering it, it feels kind of like tracing paper - if it was cardboard and no flimsy. Did that make any sense? I don't know, I liked the idea of it, the cover a doesn't have the red string thing if the tracing paper part isn't there.

The rest string thing is actually a "theme" kind of thing throughout the book.

So the photobook is comprised of pictures of the entire tour. So of course there are DVDs provided that show footage of the fanmeets!

The front cover has the first disc that includes Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

The CD packet is just attached to through the spine - the back side has the second disc - pictures at the end (since I'm taking photos of the book chronologically and stuffs)

So yeah, the DVDs are pretty nifty, lots of fun to watch all the games and stuff especially!! And those lucky fans that got to take pictures with the boys and stuff!! Ahh!! So jealous!

Anyways, so the photobook is broken up into four parts and each part has a theme - completely relevant to the title. So the rest of the rest of this post will be broken up into those parts too, similar format to the Special Selection of Beast post

part 1. waiting

So the first part is about the fans waiting for the boys at the airport and stuff. It's full of pictures of adoring fans from all the countries and stuff - really lovely to look at. It has the boys at the airport and stuff too.

You can really tell how long ago this was because Yoseob still has his Samsung Galaxy S1 in the photos LMAO holy crap. But the photobook did come out over a year after the tour itself (and I'm blogging about this a year after the photobook came out lol T____T) Yeah, the first reaction I had when I saw that the picture to the left had Yoseob's S1 AHAHAHAH I don't know rOfl~

I particularly love looking at the fansigns and stuff in this section because it makes me feel good that other B2UTY are welcoming the boys and loving them so much too! There are even pictures of them signing a giant blanket sheet or something for the boys too! Gives you a really nice fluffy feeling inside :3

part 2. heartbeat

So this section is all the backstage stuff of the boys before the fanmeets. It includes things like rehearsals and them chilling around. Photos included them looking at videos on their phones and browsing their iPad. It also has Doojoon playing around with a soccer ball - in stage outfit mind you LOL

There are also pictures of after the practice and stuff so there's nice sweaty pictures too ;) And since this is before the actual meeting, no make up either~ These boys look amazing in every way :3

And OMG, I hope you guys can read the text in the image to the right. Yoseob is so cute LMAO he's calling himself pretty. I saw the picture of him playing with the elephant and flipped out. Then I read the text at the bottom and it was like "Where does the elephant want to fly to? To visit our B2UTYs, maybe?" and I was like ()#%VN(%UBN(%BUN% MY YOSEOB IS THE CUTEST THING

part 3. b meets b

And this is the section that we've all been waiting for! This part is the actual fanmeet themselves! It has lots of B2UTY pictures and looks amazing! Wish I could've been there! The pictures made the atmosphere seem really fun and I just want to turn back time and hop on a plane to one of the destinations!

The pictures include the ones taken during performances as well as the games they played and stuff. Some of the ones during the performances were so amazing, I loved the shots. I really wished I had some of them digitally and just make it a wallpaper or something. Or print it out and make a poster!! These guys are professional photographers taking pictures for a photobook for a reason :3 And then there were just dorky pictures of the boys doing some fanservice too! You can't go without those after all! xDD And it also included pictures of the lucky fans that got to go up stage to take pictures with the boys too!! Those lucky girls!!

part 4. everlasting

Finally, this brings us to the last part of the photobook. This section mainly comprises of pictures of the back stage crew and people that we mostly won't recognise or know. But I like that they are included because they played a big part in this event too! Without them, we wouldn't have had the photobook because we definitely wouldn't have had the fanmeeting. I really liked that they included this section. I mean sure, I may look at these pictures less than the other sections, but it's amazing to be in the photobook ^-^ Good ol' CUBE!

This part shows the boys after the fanmeets and show the memories they will keep with them forever and that kind of stuff. The pictures are really cute because they're just happy and relieved and exhausted and everything ahahah :3

And this brings us to the end of the amazing photobook!

At the end of the photobook, of course, like I mentioned at the start of the post, is the second disc for the tour. The disc includes Japan and Taipei, the last two places of the tour.

Again, the red string theme happening on the covers. The red string actually appeared quite a lot throughout the photobook but you can't really tell because I've only taken a select few of the pictures for this post. But I'm sure you can find scans of this photobook and stuff - I mean, it's pretty old after all.

To be completely honest, the poster for this photobook wasn't that great. Like, I didn't even remember I had the poster, I only just took the picture before posting (whereas the other pictures were taken this morning). I mean, I remember it had a poster, but I thought I was going crazy and just ignored it. Then I looked behind the door of my other room earlier and saw the poster so took the picture. Sorry that the quality was kind of crap, I don't know why it turned out like that, maybe the ceiling light? The poster is in the corner after all? S: This image for the poster is also in the photobook btw (: Doojoon and Dongwoon LOL xD

And that brings and end to this post! I've been wanting to blog about this photobook but never got around to it like everything else, so now it's finally up - a year later xDD

So anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed reading, please look forward to my next post where I'll be posting about............. HARD TO LOVE, HOW TO LOVE - f i n a l l y . And yep, after that will be a giveaway post if people still show interest :D

Speaking of giveaway, if you guys didn't catch, I was thinking about doing a small giveaway with the Media Asia discount vouchers that I got yesterday.

So if you are interested in that giveaway, please leave a comment so I know! :D And of course, let me know if you're still interested in the Hard to Love, How to Love giveaway ^-^
