ICYMI, K-pop kings SEVENTEEN brought their world tour Be The Sun to Singapore, performing for thousands of fans at a sold-out Singapore Indoor Stadium. Harper’s BAZAAR Singapore was there to sit in on all the action, from Hoshi talking about his favorite Singaporean foods to Seungkwan leading a high-energy rendition of the song “Snap Shoot” with the help of some adoring fans.
Having made their debut in 2015, the thirteen-member group has soared to global popularity in the years since. Below we share some highlights from the concert as well as our favorite tracks by the band.

Favorite song to dance to: “HIT”
The band’s high-octane track “HIT” from their 2019 album An Ode never fails to get audiences moving. Green laser lights spanning the length of the stadium were also a beautiful sight to see. From intense choreo to a pulsing EDM beat, this track is sure to be a hit with fitness classes and DJs at the club (no pun intended).
Favorite unit song: “GAM3 BO1”
Divided into three units, performance, vocal, and hip-hop, SEVENTEEN consistently churns out songs that appeal to a variety of audiences. For hip-hop lovers, SEVENTEEN’s performance of “GAM3 BO1” from 2021 EP Your Choice is an instant classic; members Vernon, Wonwoo, Mingyu and leader S.Coups brought their full energy to this performance, ripping through playful yet complex rap lines while bouncing around the main stage.

Favorite encore song: “Our dawn is hotter than day”
Just when you think the concert is coming to a close, the band returns to the stage to give everything they’ve got for their encore tracks. Released in 2018, it’s no wonder that the band keeps returning to this song when closing their concerts. With positive, uplifting lyrics and a fresh sound, there’s no better sendoff for their fans when the post-concert depression starts to kick in.
Favorite new track: “_WORLD”
Taken from a repackage of SEVENTEEN’s fourth album, “_WORLD” is one of the best releases by the band so far this year, and in their career to date. With youthful choreography and a cheerful melody to sing along with, fans became one with the beat by waving their glowing lightsticks in unison. There’s nothing quite like seeing thousands of CARATs – the name of SEVENTEEN’s official fanclub – shine across the stadium singing the band’s lyrics right back at them.

Favorite classic that never gets old: “VERY NICE”
How many times can you hear the same song in one evening? Turns out when a song is as catchy as this one, you don’t mind listening to it on loop. And that’s exactly what SEVENTEEN had in mind when they performed “VERY NICE” not once, not twice, but nearly a dozen times throughout the evening, handpicking lucky fans from the crowd to lend their vocals to this earworm of a track.
