A mere rookie band when they first came to Singapore three years ago, K-pop boy band INFINTIE, who recently returned to Singapore as part of their first world tour ‘One Great Step’, appeared more confident than ever at a media conference on Friday.
SINGAPORE: The boys of K-pop boy band INFINITE were very different from the INFINITE which performed as a rookie group in Singapore three years ago.
Sung-kyu, Dong-woo, Woo-hyun, Hoya, Sung-yeol, L and Sung-jong stepped into the conference room clad in white from head to toe, and introduced themselves in their own quirky ways.
They exuded a certain confidence that wasn't there before.
However, the band's love for their fans here seemed to have remained the same.
“One thing I really missed in Singapore the most was the fan club," said Sung-kyu, during a media conference in Singapore on Friday.
INFINITE said that they were amazed at how enthusiastic their fans are, and appreciated the warm and heartfelt welcome they have received, since their arrival for the Singapore stop of their first world tour.
Thrilled to be able to share their music with fans all over the world, they likened their experience to stepping on the moon for the first time.
And so INFINITE's 'One Great Step' was born - the band said the name of their first ever world tour was inspired by astronaut Neil Armstrong's iconic "One small step" phrase, uttered when he first landed on the moon.
But despite their skyrocketing popularity, the boys of INFINITE are still as down to earth as ever and had a soft spot for Singapore, the place where they held their first concert outside Korea.
To show their appreciation for their fans here, they specially performed a uniquely Singaporean song during their gig on Saturday, as well as their new song "Request".
This is only the second time they have performed the song live at a concert outside of Korea.
Their fans aren't the only thing they love in Singapore - they also have a weakness for a certain local delicacy.
“Chili crab. I love chili crab.” said band leader Sung-kyu.
“When we first came to Singapore that was the first food we tried, and it was so amazing I can still remember the taste."
