Seventeen’s very first Asia Pacific Tour ‘Shining Diamonds’ has kicked off on August 13, 2016 and its first stop of the entire tour was in Singapore. Approximately 2,000 excited fans, also known as Carats, filled up the venue since this was the first time Seventeen visited Singapore. Seventeen debuted in May 2015 with thirteen-members. The group is made up of three units: hip-hop unit (S.Coups, Wonwoo, Mingyu, and Vernon), vocals unit (Woozi, Jeonghan, Joshua, DK, and Seungkwan) and performance unit (The8, Hoshi, Jun, and Dino),

Even before the concert started, Carats were already screaming when the music videos for ‘So Nice’ and ‘Love Letter’ came up. Fans displayed high levels of enthusiasm and were singing along with the music videos. After waiting impatiently for the real deal, the concert kicked off with ‘Shining Diamonds’ where the boys showcased their aggressive yet charming side and the audience was screaming non-stop. After the first song, Seungkwan asked the audience to calm down as it was only the beginning. Seventeen did an introduction and went on to greet the audience individually. Jun even greeted the fans in Chinese! Seventeen then continued with 2 songs, ‘Rock’ and ‘Chuck’, which displayed their manliness through the powerful choreography. Fans went extremely hyped up when Seventeen did a little body roll as one of their dance moves in Rock. After the 2 songs, fans continued to be hyped up as The8 specially thanked the audience in Chinese for being so enthusiastic. Seventeen then took a seat on stage and brought us to the next part of the concert which was a short Question and Answer section. They prepared a board filled with Post-Its that the fans wrote. Each member went to the board and picked a Post-It and did whatever the Post-It says. The session started with Hoshi where he had to sing a song for the audience. The audience cheered him on as he sang a short phrase. When it was Seungkwan’s turn, his Post-It was to ask Woozi, Joshua and Jun to dance a pigeon dance and they looked so adorable and dorky. Seungkwan added that if they continued doing that, they might scare all their fans away. This section ended with Mingyu and his Post-It requested for a dance battle. The8 and Jun then a mini dance battle and both showed much talent as they did freestyle b-boy on stage. With this, they ended this section and asked Carats if they were ready for more in their sub-unit stages. The sub-unit stages started off with the Vocal unit. They sang the song ‘When I Grow Up’ from their second mini album and they definitely serenaded the whole convention center as fans sang along and waved their light sticks. It then went on to the Performance unit, performing ‘OMG’ from the same album. The Hip-Hop unit ended off the sub-unit stages with ‘Fronting’. All the members of Seventeen then came up to stage again to perform NO F.U.N from their first full repackaged album ‘Love&Letter’.     After the performance, Seungkwan was the only one left on stage and everyone cheered his name. He then wore a bow tie and told the audience that he will be an MC for the next segment of the concert. It was a game section where the three units played charades and the losing team had to do forfeits. One minute was given to each team to answer as much questions as they can and the first to go was the Vocal unit, followed by the Performance unit and the Hip-Hop unit. The Hip-Hop unit appointed Mingyu to be the actor while the rest guess but when the first image on the screen was a Merlion, Mingyu started flapping his legs like the fish tail on the floor and that brought laughter from the audience. The Hip-Hop unit scored zero points but Seungkwan gave them a second chance with S.Coups being the actor this time and they managed to do better than the previous try. However, they did not manage to escape from forfeits. Vernon was made to do a sexy dance and Mingyu did aegyo and said “I love Singapore Carats” in a cute voice which made the fans went wild. Straight after their forfeits, Seventeen came back up on stage with ‘Adore U’ with fans singing to the chorus of the song. After which, they performed ‘Mansae’. They then ended the concert with their hit songs ‘Pretty U’ and ‘So Nice’ which were songs that brought out the cuteness in these boys. As they left the stage, fans were screaming to have an encore stage and the video of Seventeen training behind the scenes for their tour started to play. It showed their trainings, tears and sweat and the amount of hard work they put in for the whole tour. It is no doubt on why they are considered as one of the best rookie groups in Korea and even won first place on Show Champion. They then came out on stage again to thank the fans with the songs ‘Healing’ and ‘Love Letter’. The fans ran up to the front of the stage to continue cheering for Seventeen and each member showed how grateful and thankful they were to the fans in Singapore. Vernon gave his word that they will be back and I’m sure we look forward to seeing them again in Singapore! ‘Shining Diamonds’ Tour continues to Philippines (August 14), Indonesia (August 20), Thailand (August 21), Australia (August 27, 28) and will end in Taiwan on September 11, 2016.
