It’s been a month since CONQuest 2023 and we still can’t get over the Music Night.
Autotelic, Oh! Flamingo, Lesha, Timmy Albert, and James Reid were all a sight to
behold and a treat to hear with their delightful sets on stage. Surely, everyone’s waiting
to hear about the performance of the international K-pop band, The Rose, and you’re in
luck because this is the highlight of our talk right now!
The Rose revealed themselves through a surprise duet with James Reid singing songs
like Hold on Tight and Yes. Fans were screaming with excitement as they heard the
voice of Rose Leader Kim Woosung as he entered the stage singing and dancing.
When their duet finished, James then gave them the stage and the band greeted the
audience with a warm welcome. The fans weren't the only ones that enjoyed CONQuest
activities like match tournaments because the band’s bassist, JaeHyeong said he
actually not only played in the Valorant MatchShow and enjoyed it, but even won along
with his team making him all the more relatable and down-to-earth. And to make the
crowd more excited, they brought up the news that they have a new album in progress.
As the night went on, The Rose performed their hit songs such as Cure, I Don’t Know
You, Sorry, Red, Shift, and Time. As the fans jammed along the night ended with a bang
as the band sang their latest single Sour, showering their fans with confetti and roses to
end CONQuest’s first-ever Music Night.

After the performance, I was able to approach them backstage and have a group photo.
It was an amazing moment as the group members of The Rose were kind and
approachable and we even had a little chat together. I was wearing a Valorant cosplay
(Neon) and Kim Woosung complimented my wig, (it was surreal I have to say!). I can
certainly state, this experience was unforgettable, especially for all the fans that
attended the event to support and cheer them on!
