A spoonful of talents, a sprinkle of charms and a dash of cuteness — that is what makes the Girls’ Generation member, YOONA. Keeping her promise of returning to Singapore, YOONA stepped onto our shores once again and this time it was for a full-on solo fanmeeting.

Fans were yesterday (28 Sep) treated to 2 hours of nonstop fun, games, and laughter at YOONA FANMEETING TOUR, “So Wonderful Day #Story_1 in SINGAPORE”.

The fanmeeting started as YOONA, clad prettily in her black floral dress, sang ‘바람이불면’ (When The Wind Blows) for her fans. Her sweet voice filled the whole venue and fans couldn’t help but swayed their heads along to the soft and soothing melody.

Fans then had a mini catchup session with YOONA, where she talked about what she has been up to recently, such as filming for her latest movie ‘EXIT’ and touring around Asia for her fanmeet.

She also explained the meaning behind her fanmeeting’s title “So Wonderful Day” – it was a day where she could make memories with her fans by celebrating (this day) with one another.

The #Yoongstagram segment was next, and fans got an insight into YOONA’s life when she started sharing the behind stories from some of her Instagram posts.

When asked what her secret was to taking picture-perfect selfies, she mentioned that it was because of the filters but fans begged to differ, attributing the ‘secret’ to the beauty she exudes.

Proving that she was a versatile pro-idol, YOONA performed ‘너에게‘ (To You), a song she has personally written during her time in Hyori’s Homestay. The sweet lullaby was sung in a gorgeous lacey grey dress, and we’re sure those who were there would agree when we say that this portion of the fanmeet was like warm chicken soup to the soul – Healing and very calming.

The climax of the fanmeet was the point when YOONA presented a different side of herself as she danced to Meghan Trainor’s ‘Watch Me Do’. Her suave moves and the song’s intense beats were like a match made in heaven and she was definitely oozing with girl crush vibes.

The fans then presented a touching video montage capturing pivotal moments in YOONA’s career. It was also filled with many sincere messages from the fans, some of which were so heartfelt it made YOONA say “I wanted to cry but I was really holding it back”, and we could tell from her expressions that she genuinely meant it when she said that.

In return, YOONA expressed her gratitude by swiping out a phone to record a video of herself with the crowd.

YOONA made sure to end the night on a sweet note when she wrapped up the fanmeeting with ‘덕수궁 돌담길의 봄‘ (Deoksugung Stonewall Walkway) while walking around the stage to get closer to fans.

The fanmeet had a great mix of performances and interaction, and the Hallyu goddess was all smiles. Throughout the show, she expressed her excitement of being back to Singapore and wished that she could visit again with the rest of the Girls’ Generation members in the future if the opportunity allows for it.

Hopefully, we’ll see YOONA again soon in her tuxedo-birthday-tea party with rojak and chili crab prepared but till then, we will be jamming to ‘To You’ nonstop.

YOONA FANMEETING TOUR, So Wonderful Day #Story_1 in SINGAPORE was brought to you by IMC Live Global and HallyuSG was proud to be the Official Online Media for this event. Watch this space for our exclusive interview with YOONA soon!
