When the actor sighed that the weather was so hot and went on to unbutton his shirt, the fans went wild and asked for more, only to be teased by Lee Joon-gi, “What’s wrong with you, Singapore?” Several times, Lee Joon-gi paused to ask if his fans were enjoying the show as much as he was and reminded them to put down their phones to dance and jump along with him instead of focusing on taking photos and videos.
Lee Joon-gi also focused on putting smiles on his fans’ faces. “Who am I?” ??? asked. Under normal circumstances, fans would shout his name, right? But the answer expected of the audience was actually “You are ours!”, before he introduced the next song, a cover of Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours.” Isn’t that really sweet?
What made the night even more memorable was him going out of tune singing Mayday’s “Contentment” (Zhi Zu) at the end of the song. Lee Joon Gi couldn’t contain his laughter, exclaiming “This is the first time that I have gone out of tune for this song!” while the fans chanted “It’s okay!” in Korean. He confessed that it is hard for him to stop laughing once he starts but he managed to compose himself to bring a local song “Our Singapore” for the Singaporean fans. Lee Joon-gi always picks a local song to perform and the 2015 National Day Parade theme song was chosen as it had left a deep impression on him.
My personal favorite performance of that night has to be Lee Joon-gi’s rendition of the “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” theme song, “For You.” Scenes from the drama came flooding back to me instantly when all the fans hummed along with Prince Wang So.
