Kpop groups SHINee and Red Velvet were last in Singapore earlier this August for the Music Bank in Singapore concert, where they performed to an enthusiastic crowd at the Suntec Convention Centre. Fast forward two months and the two groups have made their return to Singapore once again, to perform in the very same venue for the Shilla Beauty Concert, organised by Shilla Duty Free to celebrate the opening of the new Shilla Duty Free shop in the spanking-new Changi Airport Terminal 4

Speaking to the press as well as the fans at the open press conference held ahead of the concert last night (Nov 24),  both groups shared that they were thankful for the warm support of their fans.

“We’re really impressed by the warm welcome Singapore fans have always given us and in the future, when we have the opportunity, we’ll be more than happy to come back to Singapore”, SHINee’s Key said. 

Red Velvet’s Wendy, who’s fluent in English, having grown up in Canada and America, agreed, adding on in English, “We came here in August last time, and we’re always surprised by the fans.  I think the fans are awesome , thank you so much for all the love and support, and we hope to be back soon again.” 

The nine label-mates (Ed’s note: SHINee’s Onew was not present) then went on to field a number of beauty-related questions from the host, before leaving to prepare for their concert later that night.

SHINee members Taemin and Jonghyun brought the biggest laughs at the press conference, with Jonghyun cheekily answering that he'll get the "most expensive products" for his family members at the airport stores. 

Never one to give up the opportunity to tease his fellow members, Taemin quipped that he'll "get the cheapest products" for his family then, before adding that he usually gets them gifts like cosmetics or wallets.

Red Velvet's Yeri and Seulgi also shared their ideal superpowers in an answer, with Yeri wishing to be invisible so she can "go to places she can't usually go to", while Seulgi hoped for the power to teleport, so she will be able to "teleport to Singapore in the blink of an eye, to meet her fans", drawing loud cheers from the Reveluvs (official name for Red Velvet's fans) present.

Later that night, special guest, Korean singer Eddy Kim, who serenaded the crowd with songs like ‘The Manual’, ‘Push & Pull’ and ‘You’re So Beautiful’, opened the concert. After six songs, the singer, who shared that he’s currently preparing for his second album, bade goodbye to the fans.

After a special dance cover by a local dance group, Red Velvet took the stage to loud cheers from fans, performing their hit songs, ‘Rookie’ as well as their latest song, ‘Peek-A-Boo’. 

Following which, SHINee came on with ‘View’, before segueing into slower songs like ‘Don’t Let Me Go’ and ‘Aside’.

The concert soon came to an end after two hours, with fans having gotten their fill of their favourite Korean pop groups.
