GFriend opened the show with their debut song “Glass Beads” and performed their other hits like “Navillera” and “Time For the Moon Night”. They also performed the Japanese version of one of their most popular songs, “Me Gustas Tu”!

The fans were very active in responding to the girls and singing along to every song throughout the show. They were able to match the members’ energies with every shout and applause to express how much they enjoyed each performance by the group.

In addition to their LSS-inducing bops, GFriend were also able to captivate the crowd by connecting to them in a much more personal and intimate way. The girl group displayed their fluency in the Japanese language throughout the show – much to the local fans’ delight!

Leader Sowon even announced that the group will be releasing their first original Japanese single entitled “Memoria” on October 10 – which had the entire venue booming with cheers from fans who were already excited to hear it! The new single will be released in an album with three versions and will come along with the Japanese version of “Time For The Moon Night” as well!
