I hope today will be your happiest day. It was my happiest day. – Yoon
WINNER successfully wrapped up their first ever concert in the Philippines last November 10, 2018 as part of their 2018 ‘EVERYWHERE’ World Tour. The concert was filled with intimate interactions which really made it a memorable date for Winner and Inner Circles.
As the lights started to dim and the sounds started to get loud, the screams became more powerful. The Nebula Ocean brought by the fans’ lightsticks is more visible now.
A VCR started to play. And that’s the start of the concert. WINNER finally stood on stage and sang “Empty” and “Air.” After singing these songs, they started introducing themselves.
The members expressed their happiness even at the start of the concert. They are really looking forward for the whole time with their fans. They managed to greet in Filipino which made their introduction memorable. Some of the statements they said were “Mabuhay,” and “Mahal ko kayo!”
Winner continued to hype the crowd as they perform their songs “Hello” and “Everyday.”
Inner Circles were able to witness the talents of each member. To start with, Mino burned the stage of MOA Arena with his hot stage performing “Body” and “Turn off the Light”.
After Mino, Jinu performed his own version of his GDragon’s song, “Untitled, 2014.” His cover of his senior’s song was truly a very emotional and heartwarming one.
Meanwhile, leader Yoon gave us some nostalgic feeling as he perform “It Rains” and “Instinctively.” As he was communicating with the fans, he sang a short part of Lauv’s “I Like Me Better.”
On the other hand, Hoony performed “Serendae.” After that, he showcased his dancing skills as he perform “Ringa Linga.”
Winner returned on stage as a group and showcased their great vocals as they sang “We Were,” “For,” “Raining,” and “Movie Star”. A VCR played on the screen. And because of that the crowd became wilder.
From their childhood photos to a hilarious skit about their dreams, the crowd can’t stop from screaming and laughing at the same time.
It may be hilarious but the skit showed the real side of Winner. For example, Yoon was drinking his favorite yogurt. Jinu showing his favorite gray hoodie. Mino creating such masterpieces. And Hoony featuring his love for Pororo.
After the VCR, Winner then performed “Immature”, “Love Me, Love Me”, and “Special Night”. They then had another segment wherein they asked the fans to scream, or should we say, “Sigaw!” And as an obedient Inner Circle, MOA Arena grounds were shook because of the deafening screams and cheers.
There are no dull moments during the concert. The energy continued to rise as they perform their top songs “Island”, “Really Really” and “La La”. The crowd was so enthusiastic and was jumping during the whole performance of those songs.
As WINNER exited the stage to prepare for their encore stage, their senior Dara had a video message both for Winner and Inner Circles. She said that she is so proud with Winner for their successful concert tour.
While waiting for the boys to come back on stage, the fan project started. Everyone turned off their lightsticks and turned on their flashlights while singing the chorus of “Movie Star” repeatedly until the boys came back on stage for their encore.
The fans raised the banners as Winner sings their songs “Don’t Flirt” and “Luxury”. The message in the banner was “Inseo, the shelter that embraces Winner everyday”. Winner took a copy of the banners and had a photo with the crowd. Mino also brought his camera to the stage and took a photo of the banner.
Winner has witnessed the great fan projects made by the Filipino Inner Circles and were really grateful for it. They mentioned all the fan projects and thanked all the fans for those.
For their last performance of the night, they performed a remix version of Really Really and Everyday.
As Winner have their final bow, Inner Circles were waving at them and thanking them continuously for the wonderful moments they have.
It’s truly worth the wait. Winner did not fail Inner Circles, so as Inner Circles did not fail Winner. The love truly bonds them together.
