Some people share their thoughts after joining Wild Tour KARD in London.
“It was pretty surreal to see them perform live after following their endeavors online for the past few months. They were absolutely amazing! Their vocals and choreo were so good, they interacted with the fans so well, and the time flew far too quickly. Can’t wait for them to come back!“.
While another said, “I don’t know where to start because the performance was truly amazing and lit!
I love how they did mini games to interact with us fans! Choreography was on point! Hi-touch was good + they were so kind but the meet and greet… well that was too quick, wish we had the chance to actually interact with them. I know it’s not their fault but still at least a small interaction with kard would’ve been nice (didn’t spend £130 for nothing tbh) :)) Overall the concert was lit and i would recommend going this event to anyone who likes kpop/kard ^^~”
During this concert, fans were interacting eagerly with each member and on the other side, KARD gave their best fan service. KARD also received lot of love and support from their fans, especially Europe fans.
