SGKStar 2015 took Singapore by storm this December! The three-day festival was headlined by a series of fan meets by some of the hottest K-pop groups at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre from 4 to 6 Dec 2015.
Kicking off the extravaganza was BTOB! Members Eunkwang, Minhyuk, Changsub, Hyunsik, Peniel, Ilhoon and maknae Sungjae started the night with a remix of ‘WOW’, and certainly wowed the more than 1,300 fervent fans with a 2-hour performance, complete with hilarious games and peppered with sugary fan services. For Melodies in Singapore, it has been three long years since they last caught up with BTOB in town when they debuted in 2012!
Greeting fans brightly and looking chic in blonde, Ilhoon said “It has so long since we last came to Singapore. We have been waiting to come back and to see all you Melodies,” while leader Eunkwang said he couldn’t even sleep in the plane because he was too excited!
Sporting his new purple hairdo, 20-year-old Sungjae seems to have gotten even more handsome and is a rising star in his acting endeavors. The young actor of drama ‘Achiara’s Secret’ shared with fans that he had recently wrapped up his filming schedule so he can have more time for BTOB schedules and Melodies!
BTOB treated fans with a mix of their newest and older hits, including ‘It’s Okay’, ‘Way Back Home’, ‘Beep Beep’, ‘2nd Confession’, and was throwing out red roses and teddy bears while singing ‘Like A Crystal’.
In between sets, seven Melodies got lucky when their ‘hearts’ got picked by members to go onstage and realise their wishes written on the heart-shaped slips! Ilhoon got the crowd going when he lingered for a particularly long hug with one of the fans, while Sungjae acted ‘drunk’ as the fan he partnered with wanted to ‘cheers’ with him.
Meanwhile, one lady got a sandwiched hug from all members that got the audience very envious.
Members also got to channel their inner candidness through a game of expressing different situations through their faces – there were alluring cover model faces, aegyo and frightened faces. Leader Eunkwang was working really hard, his frightened face tickled fans so bad that the waves of laughter wouldn’t cease! When it came to faces of ‘girls’, member got in touch with their feminine side. IIhoon was particularly sexy, while Sungjae was seen giving Changsub an adorable shove like a ‘girlfriend’ being cute with her boy!
Wrapping up a phenomenal night with fans is never easy!
Minhyuk said he look forward to meet everyone again and urged Melodies “don’t cheat on us!”, while Eunkwang vowed that “BTOB will make more opportunities to be in Singapore next year. When we are back, you all must be here too. Promise?”
Hyunsik surprised fans with his perfect Chinese – asking if fans are excited and made great memories. Sungjae told fans that “I will be checking my SNS comments more often!”
Peniel on the other hand, filmed a video with all fans – “It’s my nephew’s Jaden first birthday, so can we film a video and say happy birthday to him?” What a sweet and thoughtful uncle!
BTOB capped off the night with an encore of ‘Insane’, ‘Thriller’ and ‘Shake It’. By then, all the fans rushed to the bottom of the stage shaking it together with their favourite oppas to the rhythm.
One fan exclaimed, “It is definitely the best way to spend a Friday night!”
Sungjae was feeling a little under the weather and wore a mask when the group reentered the stage for the high-touch and photo taking event. We hope he get well soon and to see BTOB again in Singapore for a full-fledged concert!
