He also put on stunning performances of Lee Sora and Kim Jinho’s respective tunes, ‘Please’ and ‘Love This Moment’, which reminded us of why and how he captured the hearts (and votes) of viewers around Korea when he was still a contestant on Produce 101.
What truly impressed us, however, was when Seong Wu said a long list of Singlish phrases that he learned specially for his Singapore fans: “I want to say gum xia to all my Singapore fans ah, you all always cheer for me and ai wa. I guarantee chop with you all hor, I confirm bei buay ki everything we do together one. Must always stay and support the ah ok.”
For those who are scratching your heads in confusion at this point, here’s what it means.
“I want to say thank you to all my Singapore fans. I know that you always cheer for me. I promise you that I won’t forget everything that we have done together. Please always stay and support me.”
This was a much upgraded version of the ‘I love you la’ that we often hear other artistes saying, and Seong Wu’s smooth delivery of the lines made us wonder how much practise went into it.
In return, he was gifted a very special caricature - a photo of his head drawn onto the body of the Merlion (Ong-lion? Mer-Wu?), which tickled the audience endlessly.
Before the night came to an end, however, we were brought even further down memory lane when Seong Wu performed ‘That’s What I Like’, the very song that he danced to during the Produce 101 ranking evaluations.
He was also caught brushing away tears when a video, which was prepared by fans, played on screen. The snippet that touched him was when he shouted ‘Wannable’ thrice during the group’s final concert, and the singer later explained that he got emotional “because I was wondering when I’d be able to shout the name ‘Wannable’ again.”
At that point, there was nary a dry eye in the venue as fans were reminded that they’re not the only ones who miss Wanna One dearly. The members definitely do, too.
