Rain certainly lived up to his name of being the king of Kpop as he put out stellar performances and captivated hearts of many adoring fans.
He kicked off the concert with one of his most popular tracks “It’s Raining” and fans screamed and cheered their hearts out. Rain performed a couple of other songs before greeting Singaporean fans in English where he said that it’s been quite a while since he was last here in Singapore and felt very nervous.
With his slick dance moves and boyish charms, it is not hard to see why people would fall for Rain. Throughout the entire concert, he teased the fans several times where he would show off skin by unzipping his jacket and even revealed his abs during the song “I” making fans ecstatic.
The atmosphere got slightly emotional when a segment for VCR was presented to fans showcasing Rain’s performances throughout the years from debut to present time.
Rain performed popular tracks such as “Hip Song”, “How to Avoid the Sun”, “La Song”, “I Do” and not forgetting “Rainism” which had the audience grooving along to the beats. He also wowed the audience with his perfect Mandarin when he sang the song “克拉恋人”which was the opening track from his 2015 Chinese Drama “Diamond Lover.” It was certainly impressive for a one-man show where he continuously entertained the audience throughout the entire show.
To end off the concert on a high note, Rain gave a lot of fan service where he even came down personally from stage to interact with the audience and even took selfies with a few lucky fans. He also performed a special remix version of “La Song” during the encore before shouting “Happy New Year!” to everyone in the concert hall. It was certainly a night for everyone to remember and a memorable way to end 2016 as well.
