Jung In started their performance by covering John Legend’s All of Me with her amazing vocals before starting Drunken Night Tune, the cue for Gary to join her on stage. The next song was Hard To Be Humble, he playfully splashed the audience with water from a bottle, sending the crowd into a frenzy.

Gary learnt a ‘Singlish’ word and was pronouncing it as “Shee-iok” before the crowd corrected him as “Shiok”. He was repeating the word after the crowd and was embarrassed as well. He was really thankful that he was invited to the NTU fest and that he heard that this was a meaningful event for charity so he planned to have fun on stage. Jung In was surprised that the crowd was so passionate that night, she can feel the crowd’s eyes blazing through them. She also felt the popularity of Kang Gary here in Singapore, its was overwhelming!
About what Gary has to say to his fans in Singapore: ” I love you.. Jiang!” And so the crowd shouted back “Singapore loves you too!”

The Girl Who Can’t Break Up and The Guy Who Can’t Leave was up after the short interview and Gary blew a kiss at the audience and announced that his next song, Your Scent. He said that it was his ‘last’ song but he added, he still had another. Hinting for some encore cheers.

Truly, after shouts of “encore!” Gary appeared with his solo song, For Me The Answer Is You. Jung In also joined him again in their last song Rush, with confetti guns and sparklers to end the concert. After the high, fans were still littering around the stage to take photos & selfies to remember this great event that they’ve participated.
