Singapore, 2017 – On August 30th the amazing boy band, SEVENTEEN came to Singapore for their first ever World Tour called “Diamond Edge” in Singapore! SEVENTEEN or also known as SVT, is a South Korean boy group formed by Pledis Entertainment in 2015. The group consists of thirteen members who are separated into three sub-units, each with different areas of specialization: a ‘Hip-Hop Unit’, ‘Vocal Unit’, and ‘Performance Unit’.
SEVENTEEN, <Diamon Edge> was held at Suntec Convention Centre on September 29 which attracted an amazing crowd of all ages! Even though it is not their first time holding a concert in Singapore, you can still see the excitement in all the fans faces as they waited patiently for the concert to begin. The boys of SEVENTEEN awed the crowd with their highly energized performance and perfect vocals. Not only is the concert full of amazing stages, they also treat the fans to loveable fan services.
Even before the concert begins, the fans were an amazing bunch, singing along to their favorite artists’ songs which were playing. That energy and excitement grew further as soon as the lights were dimmed! SEVENTEEN then appeared with colorful suits and began the concert with “Pretty U” which had the crowd pumping! They performed several other hits like “Mansae”, “Boom Boom” and fan favorite, “Aju Nice”.
The concert was entertaining to watch as they prove how versatile they are as a group. Since they are split into different sub-units, their stages and performances are always something different which I thoroughly enjoyed. The first sub-unit to make an appearance is the Vocal Unit which consists of members Jeonghan, Joshua, Woozi, DK and Seungkwan. Their stages left the crowd awestruck as they showed off their lovely and soulful voices. It was definitely breathtaking!
Before the fans could feel all sentimental, the second unit, the Hip-Hop Unit made an appearance to keep the party going! Members S.Coups, Wonwoo, Mingyu and Vernon gave a very cool and chic stage as they rap and hype up the audience. They also show off their sexy side with “If I” which other members agreeing that it is a “sexy song”.
Last but not least, the Performance Unit shows off their cool dance and synchronized dance move which reflects how much they must have practiced! Jun, Hoshi, The8, and Dino have all the fans up and jumping with their performance. Honestly, I was just staring at the stage in amazement at how smooth and powerful their whole performance was.
Not only is the concert full of amazing and diverse stages, they also play small games to entertain the fans. One of the games Mingyu and Vernon played was the “Do not blink” games where the member who blinks first will have to do aegyo! Playful Mingyu loses quite early into the game but did not tell Vernon which made the crowd roar with laughter as he made funny faces behind Vernon. They definitely know how to crack the audience up!
Every good concert has to come to an end. When the members of SEVENTEEN mention that it is their last song, it had all the fans grumbling for more. The other members even cutely shouted, “Liar! Liar!”. The fan chants were definitely awesome throughout the concert and I am sure the members of SEVENTEEN felt the same way. Each and every one of the members relayed their love and gratitude to all the fans which definitely ended the concert on a sentimental note.
The whole concert experience was thoroughly amazing as the boys of SEVENTEEN showed how much they had to offer even though it has only been 2 years since their debut. Their energy and talents on stage still amaze me as well as all the fans present. It is no surprise that the fans keep wanting more and are already counting down till the next time SEVENTEEN comes to Singapore again. I know I am!
