The boys had some introductions before playing ‘act-it-out’ charades where both teams of members and lucky fans didn’t get the answer. The winner was then decided through screams and cheers. JB, Jackson, Youngjae & Yugyeom team won despite BamBam from the other team taking off his jacket. /cue screams

Hit songs ‘Just Right’ & ‘If You Do’ were up next, heating up the venue. Another game was played with fans, with the classical Musical Chairs we all played when we were younger (or with your idols).

A mini dance battle broke out between Yugyeom and Youngjae when the question “Who is the best dancer in GOT7” was asked. A fan-made video was played, showing the journey that GOT7 had from pre-debut period up till now. They were shocked when they saw a banner project prepared which wrote “Stay with us until the end”. In which BamBam replied, “We GOT7 will always stay with you.”

With ‘Magnetic’, ‘Bounce’ and ‘A’, the boys successfully ended their fan meeting and promised fans that they will be back in Singapore again in 2016. We hope that these energetic boys will be back in Singapore for a show (or two) in the upcoming year!

Kpress Singapore would like to thank the organisers, Three Angles Production for the invitation to the GOT7 Fan meet, as well as the 3 other fan-meeting for SGKSTAR 2015. It was a fun and Kpop-filled weekend!

[COVERAGE] Day 6 Fan-meeting in Singapore

IMG_3867

JYP’s First boy band, Day 6 has visited Singapore for the first time during the SGKstar Festival! The band just celebrated their 100 days of debut, ever since their 1st mini album, ‘The Day’ was released. Made up of Sungjin, Jae, Jun Hyeok, Young K, Won Pil & Do Woon, the 6 members are equipped with unique vocal talent as well as writing and composing skills.

IMG_4684

The band started their show with ‘Out of My Mind’ and ‘Habits’ before proceeding for a game with their fans. The game requires the fans to be blindfolded and guess which member is standing behind them through their voices. Sneaky members even cover their voices through different tones!

IMG_4621

Continuing with their songs, ‘You’, ‘Like That Sun’ & ‘Colors’ were presented to the audience. Charades were also played, where fans and members are spilt into two different teams, and they had to guess the word through drawings. It was also a game to test the member’s drawing skills!

IMG_4606

The boys also covered Wonder Girls’ ‘Nobody’ and One Republic’s ‘Stop & Stare’, adding their own colors into the songs. They wrapped up their fan meeting with their hit song, ‘Congratulations’ where it had everybody singing the chorus along with them. A special video put up by fans was also showed on the stage where the members ‘fake cry’ after watching it.

IMG_4762

Of course, the members knew that the last song of the fan-meeting is not really the last song, thus they covered some of Bruno Mars’ songs and sang ‘Freely’ for their encore stage.

IMG_4596

Members also expressed their thoughts for their first ever fan-meeting here in Singapore.

Wonpil: “This is the first time that we are in Singapore, and I am very happy that I am able to share this love with all of you tonight. I will work hard to repay the love that you have shown to us.”

Young K: “Thank you so much for welcoming us and the birthday wish that you gave. Actually, my parents are here to watch me, and this is my dad’s first time watching me perform. Thank you Singapore, I love you guys so much, we love you!”

DoWoon: “JYP Family and Day6, I love you. I love you all Singapore!”

JunHyeok: “Sorry I don’t speak English very well, so I will speak in Korean. This is my first time in Singapore and I am very happy to perform here. The love and support given to us here is something that I can’t even imagine. Today is also my mum’s birthday, so I am going to work very hard to invite her to my shows. I love my fans as much as I love my mum.”

Jae: “You guys make me feel so smart because you can understand English, people think that I am crazy when I say this is crazy in Korea. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did with us.”

SungJin: “I am so honoured to have a fan meeting here in Singapore. I appreciate the love and support, we will do our best so keep supporting us!”

Certainly, fans will continue to support this unique band and I bet they can’t wait for DAY6 to be back in Singapore again! We would like to thank Three Angles Production for the invite!

[COVERAGE] BTOB Fan Meeting in Singapore

As a part of SGKStar 2015, a 3 days event showcasing Korean gaming, cosmetics, food, fashion culture, tourism; BTOB was the first K-pop group to meet their fans in Singapore!

IMG_2140

BTOB (Born to Beat) was formed under CUBE Entertainment, and it includes Seo Eunkwang (Leader), Lee Minhyuk, Lee Changsub, Lim Hyunsik, Peniel Shin, Jung Ilhoon & Yook Sungjae. Debuted in March 2012, the group bagged their first ever win on MBC Show Champion with their latest ballad “Way Back Home”. The trend #BTOB1stwin was up on twitter for days, and it shows how much the fans are proud of them.

The showcase started with  ‘WOW’, where it excited fans to scream their fan chants and to the song as well, just as the showcase started!

IMG_2350

Laughters were gained from the audience as the hosts (Dee Kosh and Chris) played a game which required the members to first cover their faces, then reveal them according to the expression the hosts has given. Changsub gave almost the same faces for the expressions, which draw fits of laughter every time he reveal his face. However, it was the leader, Eunkwang, who was the most “drama” out of the members, had the most support from the audience.

IMG_2387

The boys then sang ‘Its Okay’ in which their live was amazing! Some lucky fans were also chosen up on stage to fulfil their wishes which they wrote a post-it before they entered the venue. Christmas sure came early for the lucky fans!

After the sweet interaction with their fans, BTOB continued with songs ‘Way Back Home’, ‘Beep Beep’, ‘2nd Confession’,‘Insane’ and ‘Thriller’. The fans sang ‘I Miss You’ to cue a encore performance from the group and it was enough for them to sing one last song ‘Shake It’!

IMG_2322

The group promised their fans that they will continue to work hard and also that they will come back to Singapore soon. I’m very sure by then BTOB will have more fans due to their amazing live performances and their fans can’t wait for them to be back!
