The last day of June marked the very first time SF9 perform in Singapore, bringing joy to hearts of many Fantasy(s), which is the name of their fandom. This was one of the many stops SF9 has included in their First World Tour, ‘Be My Fantasy’. The World Tour is an impressive feat for a group who has debuted for less than a year. Marina Bay Sands’ Mastercard Theatre was packed with enthusiastic fans, all eager to a promised night of star studded performances.
The show kicked off with a hearty start, where fans’ favorites such as ‘Roar, ‘Watch Out’ and ‘K.O.’ were performed. The boys introduced themselves and showed their charming side to the audience. To the fans’ delight, they started doing aegyo, and for Jaeyoon, he presented to the fans a series of body rolls. Hearts melted that night when they said fans were their noona, and they sung a short rendition of Shinee’s ‘Replay’. The fans then got to get to know SF9 better through the next game. Yes or No questions were asked such as Youngbin, the group leader, liking the sea more than the ocean, whether Dawon’s favorite cake type was chocolate, or whether Chani likes pineapples. It is an understatement to say that fans were treated well that night, as they also got to enjoy a ‘Dating SF9 VCR,’ which indeed fluttered many hearts. Following that, they continued performing with ‘Together’ and ‘Jungle Game’, before they left the stage to change and emerged with new outfits with a high school concept. ‘Fantasy Board’ was a segment where the boys fulfilled wishes from their fans such as doing a morning call and writing ‘Be My Fantasy’ with their hinds. A telepathy game was then played as well, where the lucky winner got to walk away with a signed SF9 CD to her name. A few more songs were performed, along with their recent comeback song ‘Easy Love’. The boys ended the show on a high with their debut song ‘Fanfare’, bringing around a nostalgic aura despite the energetic beat. One of the memorable moments of that evening was a very special fan project. A fan-made video was played for the boys, along with a banner project, to tell the boys that their Fantasy(s) will always be with them. The show ended with up close and personal events like the Hi-Touch and Photo Op section for VIP ticket holders. It was definitely an unforgettable night for both SF9 and their fans. We can see the boys try to connect with fans by trying to use English and obliging to fan services. We are sure that SF9 and their enthusiastic fans will anticipate the next time they come, for another fan meeting or perhaps a full-length concert. Watch SF9’s performances below:
