The boys are well-known for their chart-toppers like “Boy With Luv” (2019) and “Fire” (2016). But they decided to kick off the group performance with one of their earlier tracks, “Boy In Luv” (2014).

Tell us this is not the intro stage of their concert. They did a remix of Dionysus (2019) with real foals on stage to end of their stage.

The group has also four Daesangs under their belt: Song, Album, Artist and Record of the Year. Let’s say that impressive is an understatement.

ITZY

“As I began to love myself, I realised all my pains, and emotional sufferings, came from trying to be someone else,” was the narration behind the video played before their stage.

With their concept of True Me, they egg on youths of today to be fearless, and to express themselves.

Right off the bat, the quintet kicked off their act with the powerful brass of their intro, “Want It” (2019). Following a drumline solo from the band, ITZY launched into the title song, “Dalla Dalla” (2019) from their debut EP.

Kang Daniel

Member of now-defunct Wanna One, Kang Daniel, stepped onto the stage as a soloist.

He took a mature turn for “Touchin” (2019). Showcasing both sides of his personality, he proved himself as a soloist capable of taking the stage by storm.
