Taeyeon just completed the fans’ year by granting their 11:11 wish
December 14, 2018 was truly a memorable night as our ‘beshie’ serenaded the crowd with her powerful and amazing performances at the New Frontier Theater. The rain did not stop the fans from attending the concert instead it gave them more reason to enjoy the said concert.
The crowd was cheerfully waving their pink lightsticks as Taeyeon started the concert while singing her unreleased song, “Here I Am”. Which was then followed by “I Got Love” and “Fire”.
The fans were even more excited when Taeyeon commended them for their loud cheers for her. She also said that it was her first time to come to the Philippines as a solo artist and she did not expect this huge amount of support from her fans.
She continued performing her songs “Love You Like Crazy”, “Something New”, “Do You Love Me?” and “Rain”. The fans were also singing with her which really made the concert more connected.
But what made the Taeyeon more connected with the fans was during her ment where she spoke some of the Tagalog words/phrases that she recently learned. Well, the fans were really very good at teaching her. Some of the words/phrases that she said were “Beshie”, a slang word for friend, “Iiyak na yan”, which means “You’re going to cry”, and “Masaya ba?” which means “Is it fun?”
The crowd became wilder as she performed her songs “All Night Long”, “Baram X 3”, and “Why”.
The playful side of Taeyeon was seen all throughout the concert as she interacts with her fans. She even mentioned about her first time experiencing a hot December and her curiosity about what the Philippines’ Santa wears. What made the crowd crack was when she asked the fans if Santas here wear sleeveless clothes or even bikinis since it is really a hot December.
After the fun conversation, she then sang some of her favorite songs from her album “This Christmas: Winter is Coming” – Christmas Without You and I’m All Ears.
She also performed these songs during her concert here in Manila, “Gravity”, “Fine”, and “Feel So Fine”. The crowd really experienced these goosebumps as she was singing the acapella version of Fine. Everyone was really quiet at the first chorus part.
Taeyeon has mentioned that she was feeling a bit down lately that is why she is very much thankful for coming to the Philippines because the fans cheered her up so well and even managed to make her laugh.
She was also touched with the fans fan project for her – Funko Pop Doll, the special banner, the message book, and the mosaic banner which shows her initials KTY.
“PH SONEs, HERE I AM” was written at the special banner given to her. This gave the fans a more emotional and thankful feeling.
For the encore stage, she performed “Time Lapse”, “Circus”, and “I” while wearing a very beautiful attire. The crowd even sang “I” very well. Taeyeon waived her fans goodbye as she left the stage. But she did not leave without giving fans anything. She promised that she will come back to see her lovely PH SONEs again.
That night was really a night to remember. She truly proved that she is not only a legendary singer but a loving singer for her fans. We’re really going to wait to see her perform again here in the Philippines.
Thank you, Pulp Live World for bringing Taeyeon here.
