It was a long time coming for Singaporean Cassiopeia (TVXQ!’s fans), who last saw the Korean duo on our shores for SMTOWN Live Tour III in Singapore back in November 2012. Prior to that, the Hallyu icons held their one and only fan party in Singapore back in December 2011.

Their long wait was put to an end when they, together with Hong Kong-based actress Angelababy – all of whom are the store’s ambassadors – graced The Shilla Duty Free’s Grand Opening held at Changi Airport yesterday (Feb 10). Angelababy, who was reportedly unwell, quipped that the weather here was perfect for her who flew in from Beijing, which currently sees temperatures dipping into the negatives during the night.

Prior to the actual opening of the store, the celebrities popped by the public area in Terminal 3 to hold a fan engagement activity, where Korean b-boy crew Last For One revved up the crowd before the stars came on stage and gave out goodie bags to a total of 10 lucky fans.

Following which, they zipped off to Terminal 1’s transit area, where they, together with representatives from Changi Airport Group and The Shilla Duty Free completed the Grand Opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a short tour of the new store and wrapped up with the talents signing on a board outside the store.

With TVXQ! and Angelababy’s visit to our shores being,  in a nutshell, a whirlwind tour and with them being unable to say much more than perfunctory greetings , fans and media alike can only hope that they journey to our little red dot in the near future once again.

The Shilla Duty Free cosmetics and perfume stores are now open in all terminals in Changi Airport.

TVXQ!'s Yunho took the choosing of his ping-pong balls very seriously. Numbers written on the balls would determine which lucky fans managed to get up close and personal with their idols.
