Memorable first showcase for ASTRO

March 5 was a special day for both AROHAs (official name for ASTRO fans) and ASTRO alike - the day marked the group's first showcase in Singapore, as well as member MJ's 23rd birthday.

Despite having debuted for barely a year, the group seems to have attracted a dedicated following already, with fans preparing special banners, cake and even a video to surprise the birthday boy during the showcase.

The fans also sang along heartily to every performance from ASTRO, be it their debut track, 'Hide & Seek', or fan favourite 'You & Me (Thanks AROHA)'.

The showcase was also peppered with loads of fan service from the boys, ranging from the tried-and-tested heart signs, to covers of songs like TVXQ's 'Balloons' (Ed's note: Member Moonbin acted as a younger version of TVXQ member Yunho in the music video), Jay Chou's 'Confession Balloon', and even short dance covers of BIGBANG's upbeat 'Bang Bang Bang' and EXID's sultry 'Up & Down'.

The members also took the time to answer fans’ questions to them during the showcase, though member Moonbin was absent for the bulk of the segment and only returned in time for the last question.

Though the 19-year-old did explain that he "had to go to the toilet,” he later uploaded a post explaining that he had "eaten his dinner wrongly" (translation: he had an upset stomach), and reassured fans that he was “all right now.”

The members also cheekily nicknamed leader JinJin, 20, 'CryJin' as he "cried too much during the first fanmeeting (in Seoul)," occasionally giggling "CryJin, CryJin" at random moments during the showcase.

Moonbin shares his first impression of the members

The 19-year-old shared that his first impression of Rocky was someone scary, but once they got closer, he realised that Rocky was a very innocent and kind person.

For Eunwoo, Moonbin's first impression of him was that Eunwoo was extremely handsome and perfect, but once they got closer, Moonbin realised that Eunwoo was not that perfect after all.

For members Sanha and MJ, Moonbin found the both of them very quiet at first. Moonbin also mistook JinJin as their dance instructor, instead of fellow trainee at first.
