15 June 2012, a one-night only music extravaganza bringing not 1 but 5 of the hottest Korean acts on one stage. Launch Entertainment once again impresses with ‘Boyz Nite Out’. An impressive lineup of idol groups SHINee, B1A4, Teen Top, 126.96.36.199 and the multi-talented soloist Jay Park blew the audience away at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
A strong 3000 over fans turned up and filled the stadium, some rushing for their seats as the concert started puntcually at 7pm. The energy was high as Teen Top opened the night with ‘To You‘ followed by their hit songs ‘Girlfriend’, ‘No More Perfume on You’ and ‘Crazy’.
Up next flying high with their youth and cheeky boyish charm was B1A4 with ‘Beautiful Target’. A birthday celebration was held for member CNU who turned 22. The birthday boy appeared overwhelmed with emotions as fans sang the birthday song in korean. He was then presented with a birthday cake and a fan-made scrapbook. His birthday wish for the night was that “B1A4 and BANAs to stay together forever.”
Rookie ballad group 188.8.131.52 got the fans swaying and waving along to their strong smooth vocals. Off their debut album and the ost for their Indonesia-collaborated drama, they sang ’I'll Be Famous’ and ‘More Than I See You’. They got close to fans in the standing pit, and consistently waved and showed their warmth.
“Since we are in Singapore which is such a beautiful city, of course we prepared more than just these 2 songs”. And so the men of 184.108.40.206 broke into a medley of Korean songs, which includes ‘Paradise’, the theme song of popular k-drama ‘Boys Over Flowers’.
Multi-talented soloist(singer, rapper, song-writer, bboy, and what have you!) Jay Park brought the show to a peak with his smooth choreography and X-factor. He performed a total of 8 songs. However, a special 3 songs sets this performance apart from his New Breed promotional showcase. He seduced the crowd with ‘Turn Off Your Phone’ thereafter surprising everyone by singing 2 of his mixtape tracks, ‘Do What We Do’ and ‘Body2Body’.
By all means, the hottest act of the night, Jay took off his white singlet and showed off his well-defined tanned torso during his last song. We hear he had been to the gym twice before the concert to prepare the eye-feast specially for fans!
With everyone already up on their feet and screaming for more, the final anticipated act SHINee appeared with a bang! Pearlescent blue lights, the official fancolor, accompanied SHINee’s performance. They brought Shawols(fans) down the memory lane with debut song ‘Replay’ and hits like ‘Ring Ding Dong‘ and ‘Lucifer‘.
The boys explained the reason behind member Minho‘s absence, that was due to a clash in filming schedule. With a promise to be back as 5 again, the remaining four filled up the gap and impressively took over Minho’s parts. The night ended with the synchronized performance of their comeback track ‘Sherlock‘.
