On the second day of the fun-filled SGKSTAR 2015 event held on the 6th December, fans were thrilled by the appearance of SISTAR and MONSTA X in a joint fan-meet held at Marina Bay Sands Expo & Convention Center in Singapore. The fan-meet started off with a performance by the Korean ensemble, UAngel Voice who performed the OST from You Who Came From The Stars, “You are My Destiny.”
Shortly after, SISTAR came onto the stage as a trio and performed their most recent Summer hit, “Shake It.” During their performances, Soyou’s voice was played in the background during her singing parts while the other members continued with their choreography as usual. Some fans voiced their concerns online for Soyou who had recently sustained a back injury after the Hallyu Dream Concert in Gyeongjuas as she was greatly missed at the fan-meet in Singapore. Despite Soyou’s absence, the girls remained positive and delivered the hottest performances for the fans that attended the fan-meet. Dasom, HyoRin and Bora performed their hit songs including “Touch my Body”, “I Swear”, “Loving U” and “MA BOY.” The girls also performed other songs from their previous albums including “Lead Me”, “Crying” and “Don’t be Such a Baby (애처럼 굴지마)”.
The girls brought energetic performances into the concert hall with their sexy dance moves, glamourous bodies and cute outfits; perfect for the ever-so-sunny country, Singapore. It was definitely a treat for those who came down to catch the popular girl group perform as HyoRin’s live vocals were absolutely breathtaking.
Dasom expressed her gratitude towards the fans that came down to cheer them on and mentioned that Singapore is one of her favourite countries to visit. Dasom has visited Singapore a few times now and Singaporean STAR1 will be more than delighted to welcome her to their country anytime.
After singing “Crying”, a track from their “Give it to Me” album, SISTAR played a telepathy game with some of their lucky fans. Lucky STAR1 got to pair up with Dasom, HyoRin and Bora and the fan who was paired up with Dasom won as they had the most matches during the game. The winner of the game received a pair of SKECHERS shoes which SISTAR endorsed and an autograph album. Not only did the fan receive limited edition gifts, she also had a photo opportunity with SISTAR!
As it was a joint fan-meet, the performances that afternoon alternated between SISTAR and MONSTA X. When the young and energetic boys of MONSTA X greeted the fans with their debut song, “Tresspass (무단침입)”, fans enthusiastically cheered by chanting the lyrics of the song. At the end of their performance, the fans continued on cheering for the boys loudly as they introduced themselves. Although they debuted only recently in May this year, they had many fans attending their first fan-meet in Singapore and with that they expressed their gratitude towards the fans that came down to see them. The boys showcased their various personalities during their individual introductions as Minhyuk introduced himself in a sweet manner while JooHeon beat box-ed during his own introduction.
MONSTA X showcased their varied talents through the different songs from smooth R&B to powerful Hip Hop and dance music. They performed songs from their Tresspass and Rush albums including, “Rush”, “Honestly”, “Perfect Girl” and “Hero”. With soothing vocals and fresh rapping skills, they are most definitely one of the most talented new idol groups out there. During their song “Honestly”, the lovely boys serenaded a lucky 15-year-old fan. The audience couldn’t contain their excitement for the lucky girl as each member went up to her and gave her a rose.
Some lucky fans also got to go up on stage to play a unique Pictionary game and staring contest with Wonho, Shownu, Minhyuk, Kihyun, Hyungwon, Jooheon and I.M. The boys showed that they were true gentlemen as they escorted their fans up the stage. During the staring contest, most of the fans could not hold a stare long enough with the boys because they became too shy. Who wouldn’t be when your bias stands so close to your face? However, the lucky fan who managed to stare at her partner, Shownu long enough to win, definitely had a memorable day. The fan got the chance to take a group photo with MONSTA X.
The highlight of the fanmeet was when all 7 boys of MONSTA X came down from the stage to get closer to their fans during their performance for “Rush”. Fans went crazy and ran towards the stage to get up close with their favourite members. Some lucky fans even got to shake the hands of the members.
The exhilarating fanmeet ended off with a Hi-Touch and group photos with SISTAR and MONSTA X. We would like to thank the organizer, Three Angles Production for inviting us.
