In his trip to Singapore,  the 25-year-old singer-songwriter also visited other parts of the island, like Clarke Quay.

Choi Si-won

The Super Junior member was also in town to catch the live-action of the races for himself.

He was spotted together with Pentagon’s Kino and Singaporean David Yong. Separately, he was also seen at the Singapore Recreation Club.

A representative from the Singapore Recreation Club told HallyuSG that he “had a delightful evening at this prime vantage point to witness the thrilling car racing and sensational concert”.

His graciousness shone through too, as he readily accepted photo requests from a handful of lucky members as well as influencers.

He also snapped a photo with local singer-songwriter JJ Lin at the F1 Paddock Club.

HallyuSG also understands that Choi was treated to local cuisine like Bah Kut Teh, which draws parallels to gukbap, a traditional Korean dish consisting of rice in hot soup.

Eric Nam

While other idols have been catching the races, Eric Nam is taking things to another level.

The 34-year-old soloist was spotted with recently-crowned champion, F1 driver Carlos Sainz. The duo exchanged their autographs on a miniature car tyre.
