"I'm your... BOYFRIEND!" greeted the six energetic boys, with their signature self-introduction.
While majority of the crowd consisted of teenage girls, we spotted a few 'ahjumma' (middle-age women) fans among the audience. Nevertheless, the one thing Best Friends (official name of fans) had in common was the love and cheers for their idol.
The show started off with a powerful performance of "Janus", the boys' hit dance track which is incredibly infectious. Decked in their regal stage costumes, BOYFRIEND's prince-like appearances incited some deafening reactions in the arena.
Two years since their debut, the group has gradually outgrown the cutesy image (still endearing though) in their latest releases, presenting strong and impactful visuals in their music videos and on stage. These young chaps might not be as experienced as their seniors in the industry, but they sure know the way to the fans' hearts.
The fan-meeting continued with a "talking" segment where BOYFRIEND expressed their wish to see the reknowned Merlion, when asked on the places they hope to visit in Singapore. Leader Donghyun teasingly added that he would love to visit a local club, inspiring his members to start dancing playfully on stage.
If you have been waiting for the boys to venture into other areas such as acting, your wish has come true as the group revealed that they are set to take part in an upcoming Japanese movie where they will play "students in an international school".
After two songs ("I'll Be There" and "Don't Touch My Girl"), the members took turns to perform their solo stages starting from Donghyun's "Listen". The charismatic lad had fans jumping in their seats when he picked a member of the audience to be his "girlfriend". The lucky girl brought home a bouquet of flowers, an instant photo taken with the leader and the priceless experience of being serenaded on stage as the rest of the fans looked on with envy.
