QUEZON CITY — After more than a year, SF9 came back again in Manila last November 16, 2019 at the New Frontier Theater as part of their 2019 SF9 LIVE FANTASY #2 UNIXERSE World Tour.
SF9 is the first dance boy group under FNC Entertainment and debut on October 5, 2016. The group is composed of Youngbin, Inseong, Jaeyoon, Dawon, Zuho, Rowoon, Taeyang, Hwiyoung, and Chani. They debuted with Fanfare which is an upbeat track which is amix of dance and hip-hop.
The concert started at exactly seven o’clock in the evening, and opened the concert stage with performances from their three title tracks: ‘RPM’, ‘Now or Never’, and ‘Fanfare’. They then introduced themselves one by one, and followed the ment with performances from three songs: ‘Midnight Road’, ‘Go Back in Time’, and ‘O Sole Mio’.
The boys then took a short break to prepare for their next segment and showed a cute and impressive VCR to their dearest Fantasies. It is then followed by solo performances from all the members except Rowoon and Inseong.
The group, then, performed performances of their B-side tracks ‘Dreamer’, ‘Jungle Game’, ‘Play Hard’, and ‘Round and Round’, ‘Let’s Hang Out’, and ‘Photograph’. SF9 bid goodbye to the fans and said that they really had a great time in Manila because of the loud screams of their Filipino Fantasies which they all missed. They said they will be back again and meet their Filipino Fantasies soon and have fun again with them. SF9 performed their last three songs for the night: ‘Unlimited’, ‘See You Tomorrow’, and ‘Life is So Beautiful’.
But who said it was already the end! SF9 surprised their fans with an encore stage and encouraged the fans to stand up and party with them. For the encore and last stage, SF9 performed ‘Echo’, ‘Beautiful’, and a fansong ‘Dear Fantasy’.
The fans genuinely enjoyed the concert and some of them had an opportunity to meet the group up close with either the hi-touch and/or group photo. Seeing SF9 perform live was a really heartwarming and joyful experience for all the fans. Thanks to everyone, Filipino Fantasies met SF9 once again after a year.
