Singapore was the first stop for KBS's (Korean Broadcasting System) weekly Korean music programme, Music Bank World Tour, after two years, and judging from the reception SHINee, CNBLUE, BTS, Red Velvet and Mamamoo, as well as emcees Park Bo Gum and Red Velvet’s Irene, received last night, the concert was a roaring success.

Fans were treated to a wide array of special performances, from a rendition of ‘Singapura’ to DJ DOC’s ‘Bounce With Me’ by all the artistes, as well as a number of special collaboration stages between the groups.

Mamamoo’s Hwasa and Red Velvet’s Seulgi turned up the heat with a heart-thumping cover of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s ‘Bang Bang’, while CNBLUE’s Jonghyun and Mamamoo’s Whee In had the fans singing along to their cover of Korean drama Moonlight Drawn By Clouds’ soundtrack ‘I Think I’m Done Sleeping’.

Additionally, as a special treat for local fans, Mamamoo’s Solar and CNBLUE’s Yonghwa pulled out all the stops for their cover of local singer JJ Lin’s ‘Dimples’.

However, the special stage that drew one of the loudest cheers that night was reserved for SHINee’s Onew and his cover of Korean drama Descendants of the Sun’s soundtrack ‘You Are My Everything’, also known as the backing track to each and every one of the ever-popular Song-Song couple’s interactions.

Last night’s Music Bank in Singapore concert also marked SHINee’s first performance in town since 2012, as well as Red Velvet and Mamamoo’s first visits to Singapore. CNBLUE stopped by a month ago for their solo concert, while BTS was last here in 2014.

Fans of BTS could barely contain their excitement at being able to see the wildly popular boy group back in Singapore again, a testament to their popularity here.

Another highlight of the night was a special fan-interaction segment towards the end of the concert, when the members of BTS personally dialled the numbers of two fans and invited them on stage to take a selfie together, leaving everyone else green with envy.

The group’s leader, Rap Monster, also revealed that BTS will be making a comeback in September, to the delight of ARMYs (official name for the group’s fans).
